The pile of recent dieting books is growing faster than the average American's waistline. From the well-known programs that deprive and restrict to ones that rely on juice alone, it seems that everybody has an answer to the growing problem of obesity.

When Jon Gabriel's life took an unexpected turn, he suddenly was awakened to the marvelous gift that he had been given -- the opportunity to live -- and was disgusted at how he had treated his body. At over four hundred pounds, walking, sleeping, and working was a struggle against gravity, and his life was a constant battle between emotional and physical satiation. He was slowly killing himself with food.

Like the estimated 58 percent of Americans, and rising numbers in other countries, Jon was trapped in what he came to call the FAT - Famine and Temperature - trap. By studying biochemistry, Gabriel learned that your body has an internal logic that determines how fat or thin you will be at any given time. The way to lose weight is not to struggle or to force yourself to lose weight but to understand this internal logic and work with it so that your body wants to be thinner. When your body wants to be thinner, weight loss is inevitable and becomes automatic and effortless. You simply crave less food, you crave healthier foods, your metabolism speeds up and you become very efficient at burning fat, just like a naturally thin person. And that's the real transformation -- to transform yourself into a naturally thin person, so that you can eat whatever you want whenever you want and still be thin, fit, and vibrantly healthy.

After reading The Gabriel Method, you will learn:
  • Your body has a reason why it's holding on to weight--and it's not your fault.
  • Fat is a cushion--a protective barrier that our mind believes is helping to protect us.
  • If you can change that belief, you can change your body; Stop the cycle of crash dieting and start eating what you want, when you want it.
  • How to choose healthy, nutritious foods that nourish the cells in your body, not starve them.
  • Delicious shakes and smoothies, and super-power supplements, that can jump start your success.
  • The simple way you can train your mind and body to work with your goal of health, not against it.
  • Eliminate the emotional and mental reasons your body holds on to weight in just 10 minutes a day.

  • It certainly worked for Jon; he lost 225 pounds in two-and-a-half years, going from 409 pounds to 184, without suffering, dieting, or anguishing over his body. Unlike most people who lose an extensive amount of weight, his skin tightened up and now is indistinguishable from that of a person who has been healthy his whole life.


    To all of those who struggle with their weight, Jon's approach promises a struggle free road to permanent, sustainable weightloss.

    Schon als junge, sportliche Frau mit Topfigur und einem Wunsch-Body-Mass-Index quälte ich mich in den 70er Jahren mit Diäten, da mein damaliger Partner lieber eine sehr dünne Frau an seiner Seite wollte. Ich wurde in den darauffolgenden Jahren oder besser Jahrzehnten ein gutes Beispiel für den Jo-Jo-Effekt. Jede Diät half und wurde dann in kurzer Zeit wirkungslos, nach dem Wunschgewicht kam eine Gewichtszunahme und ich habe heute 30 kg Übergewicht. Seit 10 Jahren habe ich mich mit meinen Pfunden abgefunden und mache keine Diäten mehr, habe auch keine Gewichtszunahme mehr zu verzeichnen. Dann wuchs in mir die Absicht, mich nicht einfach mit meinem Gewicht abzufinden, sondern mich auch ganz anzunehmen und wie durch Zufall kam mir die Gabriel-Methode in die Hände. Ich bin restlos begeistert zu verstehen, wie Stress-Signale in meinem Gehirn meinen Körper zum Zunehmen stimuliert und wie ich diesen Teufelskreis durchbrechen kann. Es findet ein langsames Umdenken statt und ich kann an der Ursache arbeiten, nicht an den Symptomen. J. Gabriel ist der lebende Beweis, dass es klappt und ich mache mich auf den Weg - ohne Diäten!

    In the 70ies, as a young and sportive woman with a slim and trim figure and a dream BMI my boyfriend convinced me that thinner would be more attractive. My path from diet to diet with first success and then adding weight - the jojo-effect - started. Decades later I ended up with 60 pounds of overweight and since 10 years I have not dieted and not gained a pound. In the cause of wanting to not just tolerate the heaviness but accept myself with that deep inner resistance to any diet I got hold of this book.

    5.0 von 5 Sternen Effectively Presents a Diet-Free Way to Live 27. Februar 2009
    Von O. Brown - Veröffentlicht auf
    Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
    This book is essentially the theory and practice of a healthy, non-diet way of living that will actually lead to greater weight loss than even healthy diets. The main tenet of The Gabriel Method is that the body will not lose weight until it is ready; that is, until you (and it) feel safe. So it's really important to find ways to help your body feel safe, and then weight loss will naturally occur.

    The author emphasizes visualization as a part of this; he strongly suggests (although it's not absolutely necessary) that you use his own CD for this, which is sold separately from his web site. He emphasizes lots of ways of eating healthfully, but stresses that these need to happen by following the body's needs and listening to your own body, as opposed to forcing anything. He also emphasizes things like forgiveness, and other types of self-care.

    What I think is unique about this book is that it is a comprehensive approach to the anti-diet mentality. I am already following this, and have found it is the only way I can healthfully and sanely lose weight. However, this book was still of value to me as it added really good tips--like the importance of visualization, and reminders of noticing the life force of food, and much more. I liked the author's style of writing and found it encouraging and motivational.

    For anyone who diets, please read this. Especially if you are a yo-yo dieter, I think you will appreciate this book. And if diets HAVE NOT worked for you in the past, and you don't know why, this book is an absolute MUST READ.

    Highly recommended.

    5.0 von 5 Sternen Surprised 28. März 2009
    Von J. Reich - Veröffentlicht auf
    Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
    Mr Gabriel was interviewed on Coast to Coast radio towards the end of February 2009. I bought his book on February 25 and read it. There were some thoughts in the book that really stayed with me and I incorporated them into my daily routine. I decided to give my body the nutrients it needed before eating anything questionable and to do some visualization. I did not use Mr Gabriel's CD but just did it on my own. I did not think I was doing much different than I had been doing before reading the book, however when I weighed myself on March 23 I was very surprised to find I had lost 10 pounds. Thats better than I did when I spent over $300 on a well known food program that provided some really nasty tasting packaged meals and left me constantly hungry. I am rereading the book and plan to download Mr Gabriel's visualization too.

    5.0 von 5 Sternen Going on 3 weeks and still going strong! 27. Mai 2009
    Von LoRemz - Veröffentlicht auf
    Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
    I am not an overweight person but I'm not thin either. I am in the normal weight range for someone of my height. That said, I am only 5'1" tall so for me, gaining even 5 pounds makes a big difference. I got this book not because I wanted to get skinny overnight, but rather, learn why, after 18 years, I can't seem to lose these last 15 pounds. I eat right, exercise moderately and drink plenty of water. So why do I have these love handles and why do my thighs rub together when I walk?

    For me, having an extra 15 pounds on my frame means the difference between having PCOS or not. It's enough to slow down my metabolism and cause me to gain even more weight. It's enough to make exercising painful. It's enough to make me feel tired all the time. I've tried diets and exercise but I always gain the weight back. It seems my body is set at staying this weight, no matter what I do.

    Now, after reading The Gabriel Method I understand why my body is holding onto these extra 15 pounds of fat. All of the lifestyle changes I made in the past were physical, none were psychological. I realized that the change has to happen in my mind for it to happen in my body. I am seeing amazing results so far and I've only been using the method for a month. The first week my appetite reduced and my thirst increased. The second week I began feeling better about my body and gaining confidence. The third week I began exercising regularly. I've never been this consistent with my workout routines. (I now run 4-5 times and week and will begin swimming soon.)

    I've learned why depriving myself of the foods I love can backfire in the end. I learned why diets don't work. I learned why counting calories doesn't work. I've learned to love my body. And best of all, I've learned patience. I was so desperate to lose weight before, I would give myself a deadline and I'd torture myself with dieting and exercising and when I didn't see the results I wanted quickly, I'd give up. Now I understand this process is going to take time. I'm not going to expect immediate results. I tell myself that I will see the body I want in a year's time. I have a clear picture in my mind of what that will look like. I could not see that image before, and that explains why I failed so many times.

    The mind is a powerful thing. If your personal philosophy is: "If you can imagine it, you can achieve it; if you can dream it, you can become it", then you will love this book!

    4.0 von 5 Sternen Don't Throw the Baby Out With the Bathwater... But Keep a Critical Eye. 29. Juli 2009
    Von Deb Blue - Veröffentlicht auf
    I have a graduate degree in nutrition and extensive knowledge of nondiet approaches, including Shapedown, Intuitive Eating, and Eating Competence. That said, I believe we all have our own inner wisdom and should follow what works for our own, unique bodies. So this review is my own personal view. It doesn't mean I bow to the USDA or don't have a critical thought in my head, it's just my review of the book (which I liked).

    THE BABY: Gabriel's book has some wonderful qualities, including the visualizations, which I find to be a missing link in many nondiet approaches to weight management. He also gets the reader to "add in" healthy foods rather than "restricting out" foods that they see as "forbidden." This is something I've always preached and agree with wholeheartedly. His take on the dynamics of dieting and emotional starvation are spot on.

    THE BATHWATER: Although he has "notes" and citations at the end of each chapter, don't get caught up in some of the nutritional assertions he makes. Pasteurizing milk does not "denature" the calcium in it. Calcium cannot be denatured... it's a mineral, not a protein. The calcium in any milk is just fine. Eating foods in a specific order is also unfounded. He says that meat requires an acidic environment, where milk and starch require alkaline ones... well yes, no, and it doesn't matter. Protein (from both the meat and milk) is digested first in the acidic environment of the stomach, and then in the alkaline environment of the small intestine (the pancreas shoots in bicarbonate to neutralize the stomach acid). Sugars and starches are primarily digested in the small intestine. The key: your stomach is like a blender, and all the nutrients are in one big glob. You have mroe enzymes than you can shake a stick at, and they only recongize the nutrient they're trying to break down, be it protein, carbohydrate, or fat. There is no reason to eat foods in a particular order or at separate meals.

    He also asserts the aspartame causes an insulin response. This is based on a small study (that he doesn't cite, but it's the only one I could find) from 1988 on a handful of type 2 diabetic patients. The insulin peak was no different than with the unsweetened product, and the area under the curve was slighly greater.

    I could go on (and on, because he really does make some outlandish nutritino claims) but you get the idea. He makes some mistakes, as so many authors do, by not consulting with experts in areas with which he's not familiar enough. He relies on "it sounds good, and makes sense."

    NOT THROWING THE BABY OUT WITH THE BATHWATER: There is so much about this book that is excellent, just not the nutrition information (other than eating whole, healthy, unprocessed foods). I suspect Jon Gabriel will correct some of his errors in subsequent editions of the book. I hope the next edition will be even more grounded in science, as there is a LOT in this book that is uncited. It's a red flag for me, as the citations he does give are often news articles or simply "notes" that are his opinions. I'm concerned that some readers might see the smattering of citations and swallow the whole shebang without a critical eye.

    THE BOTTOM LINE: A good read for those struggling with weight issues, although there are other similar books grounded in science. Simply take the nutrition information with a grain of salt. No pun intended.

    5.0 von 5 Sternen Profoundly insightful! 22. März 2011
    Von Sajijoma - Veröffentlicht auf
    I bought this book after failing yet another diet. Crushed, dismayed, and depressed, I went back to the drawing board looking for a way to lose weight. It was ALL the same! Avoid some sort of food, eat less of everything, exercise and lose weight. If that really worked, I'd be super model thin by now! So I gave up. Then I hurt my back and couldn't do anything for a few weeks while it healed. I pretty much sat around using my laptop and surfing the web when quite by accident I came across an ad with this guy on it who claimed to go from over 400lbs to like 180lbs. The thing that intrigued me about this particular ad was that the before and after guy looked like the same guy(as opposed to the slimgenics ad where the person not only lost weight but grew taller and changed hair and eye colors). So I was a bit skeptical. I did a little research and still didn't find too much out there saying it worked or didn't. I didn't want to pay the $49 or whatever for the set on the website so I looked on Amazon for the book and saw that it was just $9.49. I spent more than that on a pack of slimfast in the past so why not give it a try. I ordered the book and it came in about 4 days. I read the book in 2 days. It's a very small book, but every part of it is packed with insightful bits to help you figure out why your body wants to be fat and how to undo that programming. It was a real eye opener! So as soon as my back healed from my injury, I put the method in action. In the first 6 weeks I lost almost 4 inches off my waist and my energy level went from lethargic to crazy. I couldn't sit still. I even started running(albeit not very fast or far since I am carrying around a lot of weight) Since starting I've lost 4 clothing sizes(and may be on my way to a fifth) I've lost one whole shoe size and a half. I feel happy and healthy. results do vary as does one's personal comitment to using the method and not saying"Oh well, Jon said eat what I want and I want a 20 scoop sundae" I only wish amazon carried the other materials that are offered on the Gabriel Method website. I feel like I did myself an injustice of just buying the book for $9.49 and downloading the free cd, because there's tons more material included in the hefty pricetag I saw on the author's website. I highly reccomend this book to anyone who has been on diets all their lives while watching their weight creep higher and higher over the years. This IS the book you need. This really will work for you if you actually read AND comprehend AND put it in action. You'll never diet again and you'll feel amazing!
