"From my hypnosis practice, I know that releasing the issues behind the eating will release the weight permanently. LIGHTEN UP! LOSE WEIGHT!! is a powerful tool to obtain your ideal weight permanently. This step-by-step manual will give you the encouragement you need to overcome any issues with food, self-esteem and life."

I am impressed with how sound your program is offered in LIGHTEN UP! LOSE WEIGHT!! It addresses many facets that typical weight-loss programs never even consider! Your program looks at why our bodies gain and hold weight and you give specific techniques and scripts for releasing not just the weight, but also the need for the weight. In just ten weeks, a reader encounters concepts- emotional, mental and spiritual-never before related to weight loss. Yours is a well-balanced approach to weight loss through total understanding of oneself and one's needs. The hypnosis techniques and scripts are simple and easy to follow and, in my judgement, quite powerful. This program is a godsend.

A step by step 10 week program of using hypnosis techniques to lose weight without starving yourself to death. Diet equals deprivation. Getting to your repressed emotions equals liberation - from all diets. Self-hypnosis through the power of self-talk and the power of your own mind, helps you to make better choices, by using self-hypnosis suggestions to improve your eating habits so you won't want that juicy hamburger and wonder why you ever stooped so low to eat that hormone-laden grease patty in the first place. You are already hypnotized through your negative self-talk, now you can change negative programming into life-changing "CAN-DO".

Lighten Up! Lose Weight! is a do-it-yourself project that gives you the answers to why you "yo-yo" and how stuffing and holding in anger and guilt contributes to fat.

The problem is not losing weight - you've done that dozens of times. THE PROBLEM IS IN MAINTAINING WEIGHT LOSS, and this program gets you in touch as never before with the reasons you don't, serving up interactive exercises on "checking your motive" on why you eat inappropriately.
