It’s so hard to shift the excess weight.
We’ve tried every diet under the sun. The no carbs diet. The nothing-but-carbs diet. The gross-kale-smoothie-3-times-a-day diet.
And we’ve been hitting the gym hard… Oh boy have we been hitting the gym hard!
4 horrendously early mornings a week, sweating it out on the hellish cardio machines before work.
But it just makes the cravings for that perfect glazed donut from the bakery on the way to the office even stronger!
It’s just too damn hard to stay disciplined. We live in a fast-paced, consumerist culture, where junk food and snacks are all too close to hand.
The odds are stacked against us.
Wherever we turn, temptation is there, waiting with a quick fix of sugary goodness and short-lived pleasure.
Better just learn to love the love handles…
What if we could learn to shut out the temptations?
Imagine if we could walk past the bakery, with its delicious fresh donut smell, and feel no impulse to eat…
It’s possible! You see, tackling weight loss starts before the kitchen or the gym…
It starts with the mind.
We need to change the way we think in order to change our relationship with food… And The Gabriel Method can teach us how.
The Gabriel Method is a 21-day meditation challenge.
It was created by the international best-selling author and weight-loss guru, Jon Gabriel.
Back in 2001 he weighed over 400lbs.
Like many of us, Jon tried – and failed – to lose weight with diets and exercising.
As a last-ditch effort he turned to meditation, fully prepared for it to be another disappointment…
But it changed his entire mindset, and life! He stopped craving junk food and lost over 200lbs!
And he kept it off!
Now he’s teamed up with master abundance coach, Carol Look, to help us to do the same – and you can discover the power of Jon’s method by taking the 21-day challenge…
Every day for three weeks, Jon will send you a 10-minute meditation video.
Each one focuses on a different theme, and as a whole they’ll teach you techniques to help eliminate cravings, and kick-start start your journey to successful weight loss.
Let’s stay realistic… 10 minutes of meditation a day on it’s own is not going to turn anyone into a sculpted god/goddess.
But it will change the way we think about food, and help to put us in the right mindset to lose weight.
For many people, issues with weight can be attributed to mental or emotional factors.
Stress, fear and loneliness for example, have all been shown to drastically change our hormonal balance.
And when our hormones are out of whack we get the cravings…
A bad day at work. Mountains of assignments to finish by the end of the week and a super-important presentation tomorrow. Stressed doesn’t even begin to cover it.
“I’ll just order take-out tonight.”
But as little as 10-minutes of guided meditation and visualisation a day can help relieve stress and remove the emotional triggers for comfort eating.
Is 10 minutes before bed each night such a chore?
By using meditation we can control cravings, sleep better and just feel generally positive about life!
Thinking differently about food is the first step. It starts the ball rolling to a healthier lifestyle that can be realistically sustained.
And 21 days isn’t a random number. 21 days is the time it takes for us to form habits.
So if you stick to the 21 day challenge, you’ll be well on your way to a healthier life.
This is the starting point. Learn how to remove temptation and the rest will follow… Much easier.
