Steven Gurgevich, Ph.D. specializes in mind-body medicine. As your guide, he leads you through a number of hypnosis sessions that are non-threatening and nurturing. Having someone in your life to encourage you is a very powerful force for change. Spending time reprogramming your thinking patterns helps to banish negativity so you can achieve the change you are seeking.

In the first session time is spent explaining how thoughts influence the body and how the body influences thoughts. Steven Gurgevich explores the dynamics of weight loss and explores how you can achieve your perfect weight. He gives insight into the origins of emotional eating and explains why diet beverages can actually cause you to gain weight.

In the second session acceptance and self control are encouraged and positive affirmations encourage new positive lifestyle choices. I love the part where you imagine you are going up stairs into a castle tower. I felt like he was reading my mind because for a long time I've had such a place to escape to and it brings a sense of comfort. In this tower, you sit in a chair and listen to a calming voice leading you to places where you can remove emotional obstacles and understand why you may choose certain foods for various reasons. This hypnosis sessions on this disk include: healthy habits, emotional barriers, self-love and acceptance, and self-control for cravings and temptations.

In sessions three there are various ideas that bring healing to your life. You may choose to spend more time enjoying the preparation of food or choose to step away from food and introduce other emotionally fulfilling activities in place of unconscious eating. I did think that the idea about throwing away food was not a good idea after dinner - instead freeze the leftovers and reheat the next day. This will allow you more time to exercise because you won't be spending so much time cooking. There is a morning motivation, before dinner hypnosis and a bedtime hypnosis.

Through listening to the three CDs, you can convince yourself that weight loss is a worthwhile achievement and you can start to reprogram your mind so your metabolism increases and your self-confidence is renewed.

If you prefer not to put yourself in a trance (it feels more like relaxing into words), you can just listen to the CDs while fully present and gain a sense of what it will take to make an ally of your subconscious. You can use positive affirmations and many of the ideas to establish healthier habits over time.
