The Gabriel Method book review

Share This Post

I have started reading a book by a guy who lost a serious amount of weight. His name is Jon Gabriel. It is an interesting story. He topped the scales at over 186kg and now is normal weight and very healthy. He had tried every diet and even spent to time with Dr Atkins of Atkins diet fame. He only ended up yelling at him for being so fat! For some reason I found that funny.

The main message of the book is that your mind will control what weight you are no matter what you eat. His idea is that the body will put on fat if it thinks that being fat  will make it safe. The trick is to get your body to know it is safe being lean. It is a different approach than any other weight loss book I have read and does make a lot of sense from a science angle. It really brings in to focus the importance of metabolism and the hormones that control it. He suggests that if you have more than 10kg to lose then there is likely to be a strong emotional element to the problem that is holding you  back. This book is worth a read if you are looking for an answer to major fat loss. I strongly encourage an approach that promotes the use of mind power. It is more influential in our lives than I think we  give it credit for.

Use it or lose it…..

Maybe some of us have kind of dabbled in health and fitness. You know ‘The Amazing Watermelon Diet of the Stars’ in the weekly mag, or ‘Pilates is the answer to that flat belly you’ve always dreamt of’ on the prime time ‘health show’ or perhaps it was ‘Go hard or go home’ flyer of the ubiquitous 6 week challenge at the local gym that hooked you in, albeit until it got too hard or just finished.

Your Lifestyle Has Consequences

Your Lifestyle Has Consequences

Have you ever heard the saying, ‘that you become what you think about all day long’? The same also applies to exercise, ‘you become what you do or don’t do on a regular basis’. Hence the headline today. The trick with this ‘consistent exercise gig’ we all know we need is to find your motivation. If you can achieve that, you will no longer need ‘will power’, as the reason for doing it drives the action on auto pilot.
