Does it sound paradoxical that you can lose weight while learning to love and appreciate your body just as it is right now, with all its alleged imperfections? Maybe, but psychotherapist and guided imagery pioneer Belleruth Naparstek's powerful meditation is what doubled weight loss in an eight-week controlled study at Canyon Ranch.
Her soothing guided narrative and hypnotic suggestions amplify motivation to eat healthy foods and enjoy physical activity, while speeding up metabolism and envisioning the miraculous biochemical conversion of fat into energy, heat, growth, strength, and movement.
Additionally, this book generates a profound sense of love and gratitude for the body, oneself, and others, which heightens serotonin levels in the bloodstream. This in turn reduces appetite, replaces addictive cravings, and increases motivation to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Belleruth's calm, trustworthy, empowering voice is beautifully paired with the exquisite music of Steven Mark Kohn and produced by the Cleveland Orchestra's impeccable sound engineer, Bruce Gigax, to create optimal impact with repeated listening.
A separate track of affirmations offers the same images and suggestions in a briefer format, designed for repeated listening while on the go or even while driving. And playing the music alone on the final segment helps listeners integrate at an even deeper level the profound physiological and emotional changes gained on this powerful audio program.
