Success Stories - Gabriel Method
"I Couldn't be Happier!"
Weight Loss: 41kg (90 lbs) in 14 months
My first step was to embrace compliments. From the moment I had this realization, I took it upon myself to force myself to say "Thank you"and smile whenever I got a compliment. And trust me, when you're losing weight and EVERYONE is noticing, you really do get used to it fast.... I couldn't be happier!
"...my Body Did What it Did to Protect Me!"
Weight Loss: 60 kg (132 lbs)
Your story of how you grew to be bigger than your business partner enabled me to realize that I had done the same thing. My father was a big man, probably 110-120 kgs, so in an effort to protect myself, my mother and my brother, I grew to be 140 kgs. I also realized that I was using my fat to physically distance myself from my father's rage. I am still dumbfounded that my body did what it did to protect me.
"I Lost 51 Kilos in About Six Months"
Weight Loss: 51 kg (113 lbs) in 7 months
I lost 113 pounds (51 kilos) in about six months and I've kept it off now for over a year. Also my blood sugar levels went from a dangerously high 19 down to 6. I'm now within the normal range. They say I still have diabetes but I don't think so.
"I Look Forward to Getting my New Body"
Weight Loss: 40 kg (88 lbs)
The hardest thing now is for me to not run over to family and friends and preach about how their eating all the time is causing their FAT programs to switch on etc.
I look forward to achieving my new body in a few months, and hopefully spreading the word, to people who are ready to hear it.
"I Have Never Felt this Happy in My Life Before"
Weight Loss: 55 kg (122 lbs)
It has been exactly as you say on the CD. I listen to it and say "that is so true".
How can I thank you for your dedication and years of research. Without it, I'm sure my life would still suck and I'd still look abnormal!
I know by December I'll have a flat stomach, good arms and my ideal body. Then we will really celebrate.
"I Look Good & Feel Amazing!"
Allen Scotty Davidson
Weight Loss: 40 kg (88 lbs)
Thanks for sharing such a remarkable winning weight loss solution for obesity, this has saved my life Jon. This has saved my life.
"...it Was a Breeze"
Weight Loss: 30 kg (66 lbs)
The visualization CD helped me to sleep better at night, and after just one week, I knew that my body was losing weight.
I have lost 66 lbs (30 kgs) so far. Once the 'switch' was turned off, it was a breeze; the first 26 kgs came off in 26 weeks. Incredibly, this has been one of the easiest tasks I have ever completed, yet it has come with so many benefits. It is no understatement to say that The Gabriel Method has changed my life."
"I Eat What I Want..."
Weight Loss: 30 kg (66 lbs)
The Gabriel Method has changed my life. I’ve lost 30 kilos. I’m not on a diet. I’ve changed my lifestyle. I eat what I want. I want different foods... different than what I wanted before.
I used to take anti-depressants and blood pressure tablets. I don’t take them anymore. My husband can’t keep up with me! He doesn’t know where I get my energy from.
"I Was Losing Weight Without Much Effort"
Lucinda "Cindy" Martin
Weight Loss: 48kg (106 lbs) in 3 years
Every night I would visualize my body exactly the way I wanted to look. It wasn’t hard work; in fact, I was losing weight without much effort. After a few weeks, my blood pressure was within the normal range and my kidney levels had also come down. Jon’s method helped me have another two years of freedom off dialysis and effortlessly I lost another 53 lbs (24 kg).
"I am Living Proof of Your Book’s Success!"
Weight Loss: 32 kg (73 lb)
I have gone from 271 lbs (122 kgs) to 198 lbs (90 kgs). I have found a women that I might be with for the rest of my life. I have never been happier or more mentally stable.
I am living proof of your book's success. Whoever asks how I lost my weight, which as you know are quite a few people, I have told them about your book ... everyone is amazed and lots of people don't recognize me. So again thank you!
"...Best Investment in Myself I've Ever Made"
Weight Loss: 27 kg (60 lbs) in 4 months
It's not a diet, it's not a quick fix, it's not difficult at all... I have found several of your nutritional suggestions to be both reasonable and delicious. I have lost roughly 5 inches off my stomach, and inches off other places as well.
I love seeing people that I haven't seen in a while, because they all tell me how great I look, and ask me what my secret is... it is the best investment in myself I've ever made.
"I Have Taken Around 8 Inches off My Waistline"
Weight Loss: 18 kg (40lbs) in 3 months
Here are some of my photos, the first one is from 10/10/08 and the second one is from 3 months later, 1/13/09.
In that time I have taken around 8 inches off my waistline and dropped from 265 lbs. to 225 lbs. It's as if weight loss is only a small, but such a crucial part of my transformation. I am really feeling so different. Like never before.
"Here I am 20 kilos lighter!"
Weight Loss: 20 kg (44 lbs) in 8 months
... and here I am 44+ lbs (20+ kgs) lighter, and it was so much easier than anything I have done before!
Now I am trying to help Lidija [my wife] through it. I know "thanks"doesn't quite cut it, but thanks for all you have done.
"I'm Now Slimmer than I Was When I Was a Teenager"
Weight Loss: 16 kilos (37 lbs)
I have struggled with my weight for years, and thanks to a low self-esteem I have never been able to gain my ideal body. Until someone suggested I read your book.
Until then I had no idea of the impact a change in mental attitude could have to weight loss. I began doing the meditation and activities every night and just months later I have lost a total of 37lbs and 20.5 inches. I'm now slimmer than I was when I was a teenager, and I feel amazing and it's all down to you, your CD and your book.
"The Gabriel Method worked, plain and simple"
Weight Loss: 50 kgs (112 lbs)
I started The Gabriel Method in April of 2008 when I weighed about 280 lbs (127 kgs). Since then I've lost 50 kgs and I feel great! I think The Gabriel Method simply reminded my body that it should be youthful at age 16. When I look at photos of the 'old me' I can hardly recognize myself. If I were to go back in time right now, I'd think I had a long-lost older brother with a bad ass pony tail!
"I Used To Wear A Size 44 Inch Pants..."
Weight Loss: 41 kg (90 lbs)
Thank you for your book, it is fantastic. My weight was 116 kgs and today I weigh 75 kgs, in six months!
I used to wear a size 44 pants, and now I'm down to a 30, which are even kinda loose for me. About a year ago I bought a pair of slim jeans, and this has been the motivation for me to lose weight - I really believe I'll fit into them soon.
"As of August 8th 2011, my 48th birthday, I have maintained my 125lb (60kgs) weight loss for a year!!"
Weight Loss: 60lbs (27kgs)
Last May 2009, I was diagnosed with Insulin Resistance Syndrome and was requiring 500 to 700 units of insulin a day. I was instructed by my doctors to go on an insulin pump. Last December I read your book in great relief because; finally someone who has actually lost weight through a permanent life style change had written a book on exactly how they accomplished such a monumental task.
Since December 2009 I have lost 60 lbs (27 kgs). I am also now only requiring about 30 units of insulin a day. My doctors look at my A1C records and tell me it borders on miraculous, I have you to thank for my life style change.
"If Every Person Was Given this Book No One Would Be Obese"
If every person was given this book, no one would be obese. It would be an epidemic of the past. It almost seems sad people are dying because of obesity when it's so simple to be thin!
(Alannah Cadman, New Zealand )
"Since Listening to Your CD Every Night, I Don't Feel Hungry at All"
I have been struggling with my weight for the past ten years... I could not understand because I don't eat desserts, cakes, chocolate or sweets and I cook most of my food. After reading your book I realized that I was actually nutrient deficient. Since I have been listening to your CD every night, I don't feel hungry at all.
(Beverly Lewis, South Africa)
"I Was So Impressed by My Results With Jon’s Method"
I was working at radio station 4BC when Jon came on to our breakfast show at my request as a producer for several shows. I was so impressed by my own results with Jon’s Method that I wanted to get him on air.
(Michelle Turnbull, Australia)
"My Whole Relationship with Food Has Changed"
WOW! I read [the book] over two nights, couldn't put it down. It was like the penny had dropped, after three days of listening to your meditation CD, my whole relationship with food changed... I can't explain my extra energy, and my new ability to handle my very stressful job. Everything is so much easier, I'm happier and more confident.
(Brenda Black, New Zealand)
"I am Astounded at the Changes that I Have Made in My Life"
I cannot remember the last time I felt so alive, fulfilled, and happy. When I read your book it was as if you knew me better than I knew myself. It is amazing that more people have not made the connection that a healthy lifestyle consists of taking care of the mind, body, and soul, instead of just the body...
"I Don't Crave Sugar at all Anymore"
Since I've read your book and listened to your CD, I've been craving dark green leafy veggies, and I've also slowed way down on sugar. As a matter of fact, I don't crave sugar! My daughter is doing great too. We both have committed to following your lifestyle. I tell everyone I see about your book and CD. Thank you so much.
"The Gabriel Method is Groundbreaking & Self-Empowering"
You have brought together a multitude of aspects and created a truly holistic 'treatment' that is more a new lifestyle and at a time of raised awareness where it all makes such intuitive and rational sense.
(Julie U, Australia)
"I Have Made Positive Changes in All Aspects of My Life"
I am feeling so much more energetic already as I gradually introduce more live foods and nutrients into my body. Your desire to share your wealth of knowledge and amazing success with weight loss is what is so inspiring to me and I'm sure it will be to millions of others around the world.
(Laura Nally, Australia)
"I'm No Longer Hungry, Just Content!"
... for the first time in over 20 years, I am not hungry. I feel content - just very different. For some reason, I don't seem to require a lot of food. My portion sizes have gotten smaller. I don't measure them out, but I look at what's on my plate and it really is a small amount. I just don't feel that I need more than that. I don't crave sweets either and I'm a chocoholic - at least I was one. Now I can take it or leave it.
"My Energy Levels & Stamina have Increased Exponentially"
After following your method I can now get back into some of my old "skinny"clothes, which is fabulous! PLUS I am eating a lot more and exercising less! So, Jon...a big THANK YOU. How wonderful for you to be able to help people in this way!
(Janet Mitchell, Australia)
"I Now Understand What My Body Wants"
Your work has helped me so much: when my husband died 20 months ago, I gained 15 pounds but now I have slowly lost it over a year. In the beginning I would lose a bit but it would keep coming back in 2-3 pound lots. I now know why I gained the weight and how to take it off without cycling through diets and most of all without 'working' at it.
"Your Approach is Enlightening"
The whole Gabriel Method approach is enlightening, very interesting and humorous, so it was a joy to listen to. Many thanks for a great, commendable program, Jon. I am telling everyone all about you.
(Marianne Hale, USA)
"I Have Finally Found the Holistic Weight-Loss Approach I was Looking For"
I have FINALLY found the holistic approach to weight loss that I have been searching for. Your method is the first holistic approach that has made sense to me. Thank you so much.
(Kathy Namaste, USA)
"I Can Say with Confidence that My Weight Will Continue to Fall Off Me"
The Gabriel Method is the most amazing process... our bodies work the way they work. I have been using this method for a month, cut back my walking by half and people are asking me what diet I am on! I have complete pleasure in telling them I am on no diet and am rather letting my body get me to where I need to be.
(Karen, New Zealand)
"Your Ideas are Revolutionary"
I've applied visualization techniques using your CD for the first time last night and I'm feeling a big difference from within today.
"I am finally giving my body a chance to live"
I find I am no longer obsessing about food all day. I have had chocolate bars and cake in the house all week and I have paid no attention to them (normally they would prey on my mind all day until they were gone, and still I would not be satisfied).
Gone are the days of constant dieting, taking pills and shakes and feeling guilty about food. I now have a powerful tool (my mind). It just took someone like yourself for me to realize it was always there for me and will work for me when I truly need it to. Any doubters out there I say, give it a go! You have nothing to lose but weight which has held you back from the true sense of living.
"I Can't Stop Feeling Good & Happy"
I bought your book and I finished it in one day, I couldn't put it down. Today, I saw my reflection in the shop window, and usually I would be horrified and get myself down and depressed about it, but thanks to you I smiled and thought, my body is the way it is now and I accept it... I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate you and your wonderful works.
"Thank You for Giving Me a Chance at a Normal Life"
My doctor was very skeptical... but he said yesterday that he hasn't seen me looking so well in 12 years and is totally gob smacked with the food I am now able to eat. So here is a BIG THANK YOU JON GABRIEL for giving me a chance at a normal life.
I have tried all the spectrums of health including naturopaths and the like all to no success. But The Gabriel Method has done the trick and I am jubilant that I am getting my life back.
(Dianne Gosper, Australia)
"I Have So Much More Energy"
I am already feeling 100% better and have so much more energy. Like you, I have spent thousands of dollars on trying to get my health and weight right using both western and alternative medicine and had all but given up trying.
(Anne Baker, Australia)
"You Touch on Issues I've Dealt With My Whole Life"
You have touched on things that I have been dealing with my whole life and wonder why they are never acknowledged in the health industry as contributing to weight issues.
(Lisa Markley, USA)
"My Head is Clearer & My Mood is Better"
This diet has had a truly dramatic effect on how well I maintain emotional balance throughout the trading day. My head is clearer, my mood is better, and I can quantify an increase in profits starting within days of changing my diet and how I handle stress. Awesome! Thank you for your work."
(Kristen Weiers, USA)
"I Feel Liberated & Free"
I'm healthier and more vibrant and I forgive and accept my body as it is. I have let go of the belief that I would never be as thin and beautiful as I was as a teenager and have embraced my ideal body! I have a photo of me in a bikini at 15years old by my bed. I feel liberated and free and no longer have good and bad days! Every day is wonderful. I'll never look back. Thank you so much!
(Kimberley Harris, New Zealand)
"I am Not Hungry & Only Want to Eat Fresh & Real Food"
I am not hungry and I only want to eat fresh and real. And my body is loving it. In addition, I am claiming my passion - I have started a business, and in order for this idea to come forth, I have to be willing to be visible... and now I can hardly wait!
"I Love Your Holistic, Common-Sense Approach"
I'm recommending your book to everyone I know whether they're overweight or not (even my thin friends aren't eating right). I just wanted to let you know how excited I am to have found your book and for the changes to come.
(Jeff Callaway, USA)
"I Feel More Empowered Already"
I recently gained 20 lbs during a four-month period of unemployment. But after reading your book, I get that it was due to fear of scarcity and I was trying to store as much as possible! How freeing to realize that I now have a tool for the rest of my life to make sure this never happens again. Life feels more do-able now thanks to your experience, research and desire to share with others.
(Pamela Babcock, USA)
"I Now Know How to Change Back the Shift In My Body"
You have done my research for me! I knew something had shifted and now I know what that is and how to change it back. I know we are all on the path to physical change and expect to be able to add some lovely after pictures to your success list soon.
(Krista Armstrong, Canada)
"Your Book Has Improved My Relationships"
Within just one hour of making that initial decision, I noticed my son who had been emotionally and verbally abusive to me on a daily basis since he was 7, began treating me differently.
Intuitively, I believe, he recognized the new me and he felt quite differently towards me and while at 14 he cannot name the change, Thank you for giving me back my son and for helping me to love myself again.
(Leonora Esser, Australia)
"I Now Know Body Transformation is Going to be Easy & Natural"
I have type II diabetes... your information made everything that much clearer, and the visualizations I have been doing with my ideal body made everything very real. I will indeed be exercising with joy and (relative) ease soon, and that my body will be transformed to my ideal almost effortlessly, in about a year. Thank you Jon, from the bottom of my heart—I know I can never repay you, but I shall be forever grateful.
"It's Only Been a Few Weeks, but the Results Have Been Amazing"
I enjoyed the book and the CDs have been great. It has only been a few weeks but the results have been amazing. Thanks.
(Joe Cadmus, USA)
"I Finally Feel Like an Ordinary Person With a Problem"
I had managed to control my weight until my forties. Then all bets were off. I finally feel like an ordinary human being with a problem, not someone who belongs in a room marked ‘fat person’.
"I Can Feel my New Body Becoming a Reality"
I'm on week 2 of your program and I'm already noticing a big difference. I am almost 300 lbs and yet I can feel my new body becoming a reality. Thanks for your advice. God Bless.
(Geoffrey Richard, Canada)
"Weight Loss is No Longer an Effort"
I feel a great burden lifting off of my shoulders, weight loss is no longer an effort, all I think about now is a new slim me healthy and happy. I feel this energy surging in my body and it totally confirms what my mind is thinking like my mind and body are finally talking to each other in harmony it’s an incredible feeling that keeps me motivated all day.
(Don Hemara, Australia)
"I'm Finally Sleeping Well!"
Since I started doing the bedtime meditation CD, I've slept through 7 nights in a row! This is HUGE. I'm convinced it's the CD. When I wake up too early, I take a deep breath, relax, and find myself falling back to sleep instantly.
"I Feel I Have My Life Back"
I just feel like there are so many things that are the same for me as in the book. I am not wonderful with words but just want to say how hopeful I am for a better life and seeing a door to it.
(Janice Thomaschewski, Canada)
"You Have Given Me Hope"
You are the living proof of what I’ve believed for ages and I could not get my kinesiologist to understand—that my weight is not about food. And yet, when I phoned her the other day to discuss the fact I felt that "GUILT" was making me FAT... she told me about your book and told me to look it up. You have given me hope, boosted my faith and got me excited. I also find your "switch" a very powerful visualization tool.
(Catherine, South Africa)
"I am a Different Person Now"
I have been listening to this CD every night for two months and I am a different person. I’m much calmer, I don’t get the shakes if I don’t eat, I crave yellow and red peppers all the time!! It's amazing. I just wanted to reach out and say thanks for saving & changing my life forever.
(Elissa Connerty, USA)
"I Don't Even Need to Watch What I Eat Now"
I've listened to plenty of "weight loss CDs", but yours is quite different. I'm eager to listen each night before I drift off to sleep. You speak as a friend, you speak wisdom, and you have carefully chosen your words so as not to impose any value system on the hearer. Your respect, your caring, your sincerity, shine through. I'm just wallowing in the pleasure of being told all I have to do is breathe. YAY. I can manage that. And I can feel it working.
(Brenda, New Zealand)
"You Have Helped Me Mend a Dysfunctional Lifestyle"
Your method is not just, or even primarily, about food; it's about ways to mend a dysfunctional lifestyle. I feel that your book, CD and web material have really turned my life in the right direction, back toward almost-forgotten joy... thank you from the bottom of my heart!
"I am Astonished at How Much Better I Feel"
I have only been practicing this for 8 days and have already noticed a change. I am astonished at how much better, in just 8 days, that I feel. Thank you.
(Tami L. Bryan, USA)
"I Knew as Soon as My Body Was Ready to Start Losing this Fat"
You know when your body says ‘OK we are ready to get rid of this fat’. Thank you for your brilliant research and for your honest message. I have passed this book on to all my friends!
(Jennifer Valenti, USA)
"I Can Eat Freely & Joyously, & Be Healthy & Vital"
Your book is an answer to a prayer I barely knew I was making. When my day started today, I felt hopeless, angry and discouraged about the state of my body. As my day ends I have hope that I can eat freely and joyously, be healthy and vital and still be thin.
"This is Not Just a Diet, it's a Spiritual Journey"
Now I just want to eat right and exercise. If I can do that, the weight will be where it's supposed to be. The thing I want to comment on is the spiritual nature of the book. I think it should be talked about in that sense and not just as a ‘diet book’. This book is very much bigger than it appears and I want to personally acknowledge your search for health and your sharing of it with us.
(Sharon Beck, USA)
"I Crave Fresh Fruits & Veggies"
Something is obviously working for me, I feel like a different person. I crave fresh fruits and veggies and have become very interested in eating only healthy foods. I enjoy doing the visualization every night, I feel it has a major impact on my day. I'm consciously working on several issues in my life to relieve stress. I love the Spiral Spinal Meditation you do on the 3rd Transformation CD.
(Karen Ecker, USA)
"I Cannot Believe the Change in Myself"
I have not had the urge to jump on the scales as yet. I have decided to wait a month, that’s a breakthrough in itself, I feel lighter I feel healthier, God I feel happier... I am trying your method and I can't praise it enough, because for the first time in my life I really really want to be slim. Thanks John I will keep you posted.
(Michelle Sanderson, Australia)
"I Never Knew I Could Feel So Happy"
I never knew I could feel so happy, eat less, and so effortlessly, because my body just does not want so much food. Thank you for putting so much effort in helping people all over the world. You are a wonderful person! All the best Jon and a big thank you!

"I've Seen a Remarkable Change in My Insulin Levels"
I have only recently started on your lifestyle change and as a type 2 diabetic have seen a remarkable change in levels in only a few days. I have not taken any meds for 2 days and this morning's level was only 5.7 then after breakfast 5.8. Is it really this simple? Thank you very much!
"My Body Has Become So Firm"
I noticed my legs, arms, shoulders, body even my face and neck have become quite firm so quickly, as I do not have too much weight to lose I was not sure how my body would react. I am so pleasantly surprised.
(Doreen Wilkes, Australia)
"I've Realized that Weight-Loss is a Simple Truth"
Every time I hear an authority speak now about calories in-calories out, or "biggest loser"shame based, drill sergeant stuff, I think about the simple truth of re-setting the fat programs and reducing stress... well, clearly there is just a whole lotta need out there for this precise work....
"After Two Days I'm Sleeping Better & Using Less Sugar"
I have slept more peacefully than I can believe.... as of yesterday, the sweetener has gone and I am using sugar only, but much less than I would.
(Linda Hong, Australia)
"I Recently Got to the Heart of Why My Body Wanted to Be Fat"
After struggling with weight all my life (I'm 42) I recently got to the heart of why I wanted to be fat. I am finding the tips in your method incredibly helpful (especially the water at night).
"I Don't Feel the Need to Buy Junk Food Anymore"
I'd only listened to your CD three times, yet, when shopping, felt compelled to buy fruit etc. I went down the chip aisle to try to buy some corn chips, but just didn't want them! Seems to be working already! Thanks.
"I Am Ready to Move on With My Life"
Thank you in advance for all of the new life skills the Gabriel Method has given to me. The words and sentiments offered are invaluable information that I cherish and carry with me every day. Thank you.

(Marilyn Spilkin, South Africa)
"I Feel Encouraged & Lighter"
I feel encouraged, lighter, feel as if there is lightness in my chest... I still have a lot to do—mainly throw out every diet book, how-to, and recipe I've been saving for years that I have in the house. Nuts to all of them. You're the only person who makes sense, seems quite sane and who truly understands.
"After Three Days I Already Feel Like a Healthy Fresh New Person"
Mr. Gabriel you are amazing. I have been following your book and CD for three days... Yeah, three days and I already feel like a healthy fresh new person. You're truly an inspiration. Thanks so much.

"I want to ‘prescribe’ The Gabriel Method to all my clients"
I am a nutritionist in South Africa, with most of my work involving people fighting specific ailments or weight. For my own interest I read and analyze almost all weight management books and programs. I was very impressed with The Gabriel Method book! It is well-written and the fundamental principles are true to what I believe in as a nutritionist. I certainly want to "prescribe"the book to all my clients in weight loss programs. The principles of nutrition as outlined in your book are the true foundation to good health and weight management ...
(Ben Alberts, South Africa)
"Each day I feel a shift in my mind and my body"
Thank you Jon for persevering with your quest and achieving your goals. Putting yourself, your ideas and your thoughts out there before so many people takes courage and conviction. I am so grateful for the person you are – to be not only successful but to also share your success so comprehensively and compassionately with others. Each day I feel a little change, a little shift - in my body and my mind. This holistic approach, this connecting of mind, body and spirit has been the turning point for me in what has been a 20 year battle of me fighting with my body and losing.
(Lillian Hetet, New Zealand)
"Jon, you have changed my life"
I am 27 years old, and although I have always weighed around 50 kilos, in the last 2 months I gained 20 kilos. I just couldn't stop eating, but now that I have read your book, you have changed my life. Thank you Jon, you are the best thing that ever happened to me."
"You have tapped into something beyond the norm"
Honestly after reading your book, being familiar with Hypnosis and NLP, I think you have tapped in to something far beyond and I do hope and pray that you write a similar book for sick people guiding them to get their life back on track and getting healthy.
(Taraneh Seta, Australia)
"I am so into The Gabriel Method"
I can proudly say I started listen to the CD about a month ago and I've lost 14 kg. I did nothing, I didn't watch what I was eating and I didn't do any walking and I still lost 14kg in about 4 weeks... I am so into The Gabriel Method.
(Shirley Simpson, Australia)
"The fat is melting off"
I wish to thank you for the all the years of research, time money and trouble finding the answer for weight loss which you have. My daughter and I have been on the advice of your book for four days and we began losing weight immediately. Jon I don't know how to say thank you for what your book has done for my daughter and I.
As you are very well aware of, we have spent small fortunes on every conceivable diet, diet pills,diet foods, diet doctors, diet books etc. Four days after reading your book we no longer think diet, neither buy anything advertised as diet. Other than that we are focused on reading and applying what we read and also listening to your CD every night. The fat is melting off.
(Ann Groenewald, South Africa)
"This never-ending rollercoaster can be stopped"
Jon was so inspiring on Coast to Coast last night... finally someone who made sense! I've simply given up dieting (losing 10 lbs. to gain back 20 lbs. is a familiar story). Thanks for giving me back some hope that this never-ending rollercoaster ride can be stopped. Bless you
"I am excited to present The Gabriel Method to my patients"
I am a wellness practitioner at Epigee Wellness Centers in Amarillo TX. Jon's approach has greatly changed my life, and I am excited to present it to many of my patients.

(Abdul R Butt)
"The Gabriel Method is amazing"
I have heaps of energy and find myself cooking healthy meals, no longer eating junk and drinking water which I never have. I’ve lost 2 kg already. This is amazing and Jon’s method is so true. You have done a wonderful job with losing all your weight and I hope that I will reach my dream figure as well.
(Leah Emmerton, Tasmania)
"I feel fantastic for the first time in my life"
I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your marvelous book. I think your work is spot on. I am 42 and have struggled to control my weight since childhood. Since reading your book, 4 months ago, I have dropped 17kg. It has been largely effortless. Your words so resonated with me, especially the section on beliefs and "fat is safe". As soon as I read that, I knew that was what I believed. I got to thinking about this. There is nothing safe about being fat, it isolates you, stresses you, and leads you to being depressed. As soon as I realized this, it was like a switch went off (or on!) in my mind. My excess fat began to just melt away. I feel peaceful and I just feel as if I am returning home to the me I am meant to be. I feel fantastic, really for the first time in my life. The more weight I lose and the more I do things I love, the more energy I have! God bless you, you have set me free.

"I have steadily lost excess fat"
I'm using the words of others, but have to agree that The Gabriel Method has revolutionized my life in terms of my body image and over all wellbeing. I have steadily lost excess fat since starting the visualization.
I now love my body and accept it as a marvelous gift. I have stopped comparing myself with others and wanting their bodies, that has been a positive change. I know I have a way to go before I reach my desired goal, but I'm loving the challenge and seeing the change in my body and mental well-being.
(Georgie Zuzak, Australia)
I want to thank you for your empathic and passionate work on why diets have made me and others like me fat... For the past 4 weeks, I have been listening to your evening meditation nightly and listened to your book and seminar (at least 3 times each). I find the information inspirational and feel you on my side. I am so grateful for you sharing your journey. Thank you for inspiring me to love my body. Diets have shamed me into loathing myself and deeming myself unworthy ever since my sister and mother put me on my first diet at the age of 8. I feel this turning around for me now and look forward to perhaps inspiring someone else to love their body.

"Not only have I lost 8kg in a month, but I feel alive again"
I was given The Gabriel Method book about a month ago. I had some skepticism about this new dieting fad. How wrong I was. I had given up on the idea that one day I could be thin again, however, I read the book in one weekend and as they say, I had a light bulb moment, where I finally realized why I was overweight. It has been a month now and not only have I lost 8kgs, but I am alive again, and it has been noticed by everyone around me. I am smiling and have a passion for life again.
(Mia Howard, USA)
"I am finally seeing results!"
Bless you Jon and your soothing voice that sends me to sleep everynight! No insomnia since I started listening to the CD and after too many years of being overweight, I am finally seeing results! 🙂
"I lost 9 kgs in two months"
I started to follow The Gabriel Method book and two months later I have lost 9 kgs. At this time I have not done any exercise due to having arthritis. My aim is to lose another 15kgs & I believe it's going to happen..Jon Gabriel you are a God send!
"Brilliant and Insightful"
I love The Gabriel Method book..it brings together many concepts I have studied for years and have not been able to collate in a usable way..brilliant and insightful.. Jon is light-years ahead of the world and since I started listening to the CD at night time, I have lost another 4 kg. My body and mind loves this. Of all the books I have read, this one shows a truth my body understands.
"I’m down from a size 18 to a 10/12 in four months"
I started listening to The Gabriel Method visualization/meditation at the end of August. Four months later, I'm down from a size 18 to a 10/12. I have lost almost 40 lbs. I didn't change much other than to add some walking 5 days a week which I haven't even done for 2 months since the snow started and I'm still losing weight.
"I sleep better, feel better and want to eat better"
I have read The Gabriel Method book in the last 2 weeks, and what a change to my life! I am about 70kg overweight, but have discovered that losing weight is really a change of mindset about your life and food. I lost 2.2kg since I started reading the book and listening to the CD every night. I sleep better, feel better and want to eat better already. I was a chip(crisps)aholic and have not craved any in about 3 weeks now - that alone is a miracle!
(Roshette Badenhorst Van Rensburg)
"Reprogramming the mind makes so much sense"
I just started reading The Gabriel Method book and it is like Jon is talking directly to me and telling me, Hey Jeff, you are not alone and this will work for you. I am thankful to Jon for writing this book. Finally there is something that I can actually do to lose weight - reprogramming the mind makes so much sense to me!
"WOW! I am amazed at the results"
I was a little skeptical when I first came across this book but I thought, what have I got to lose, I'll read it & listen to the CD anyway and see what happen.WOW! I am amazed at the results! I lost 1kg in the first week but the biggest change has been a mental one. I am no longer craving sweet things or worried about food all the time and I find that I am wanting to exercise and eat natural healthy foods.
"I no longer have food addiction"
I am a huge fan of your work which has been inspiring and has helped me a lot. As a biology student your ideas make perfect sense to me and explained a lot about why I am the size that I am. Before your book I was obsessed with eating and I couldn't stop thinking about. After incorporating your ideas into my life I no longer have this food addiction except if I am stressed or not eating right. It is surprising how predictable my body has become! Thanks for sharing your ideas with me and the rest of the world.
"I believe in the power of visualization."
I downloaded The Gabriel Method CD and listen to it every night. It has been miraculous for me. I just can't think of any other way to describe it. I believe in the power of visualization and this has been another reminder of the powerful link between mind and body. I lost 1kg in my first week and found myself exercising every day and eating much healthier food.
(James Ian Marshall)
"I know that I will achieve my ideal weight"
I've been on The Gabriel Method for three weeks now and have noticed that my belt notch has decreased one notch which is about 2 cm! I don't even show the slightest interest in cakes, biscuits or other 'party' foods and only eat my three main meals (most days), and I now drink a lot more water. I used to not eat breakfast and constantly obsess over food. It was the true 'famine' syndrome. I know that I will achieve my ideal weight.
"I catch myself dancing and whistling!"
Two weeks and 6.5 pounds down, I’m feeling great, have a new attitude, am much less cranky and I am catching myself dancing and whistling! ME! As great as all of this is, the aspect of that I find the most surprising is the amount of detoxing my body has gone through.
"I’m starting to feel like a THIN person"
I bought the book a week ago, read it that night and wow, it sure did put a lot of "stuff"into perspective about food, weight gain and weight retention. I immediately started to implement "whole foods"and I really don't feel like eating rubbish at all. I’m enjoying real food, which is good for me and I am already starting to feel like a thin person, because the weight is falling off.... I am feeling so much better, thank you Jon!
"I feel better and don't crave sugar"
A week into doing The Gabriel Method I feel better already. I don't crave sugar, am eating fruits and veggies and am feeling great! Thanks Jon!
"The Gabriel Method is truly amazing"
The Gabriel Method truly is amazing! My cravings are subsiding and I feel so much healthier. The CD is the key for me. I started it on July 31 and have lost 7lbs so far! This is miraculous for me, after exercising 7 days a week and counting every calorie I was losing about 1 lb per week. Now, my first week and NO exercise I lost 7lbs! Thank you Jon Gabriel!
(Kristen Berntzen McKenzie)
"Finally a solution that addresses the real issues"
I just finished The Gabriel Method book. It's been 3 days since I got it and started reading and listening to the CD. My mindset is changing. My cravings are changing. I don't want sugar (amazing for me) anymore. I'm so glad to be ending the struggle once and for all. Finally a solution that addresses the real issues instead of throwing diets at it.
(Meredith Hilton Pond)
"I am feeling like a Queen "
I am in awe at how well I am sleeping- I’m feeling like a Queen and even exercising with mighty enthusiasm. Visualizing and the mind connection are saving my life. Thanks a million, Jon.
"I have lost 7 kgs in 2 weeks! "
I owe a lot to Jon Gabriel and it's only been 2 weeks since I started this way of life. I have lost 7 kgs, never feel hungry and now really feel like eating the right foods all the time.148 kg to 141 kg in 2 weeks. This is the start of my journey, thank you Jon Gabriel.
" My body just turned off the stomach switch! "
I have just finished reading The Gabriel Method book, and listened to the meditation CD tonight for the first time. The thing that amazes me most so far is how full I feel after eating a fraction of what I'm used to! It's like my body just turned off the stomach switch! There's a full cheesecake sitting in the fridge (normally something I’d sit down and eat in about ten minutes) and it's just plain uninteresting. Amazing after only a few days of knowing about this book!
"The Gabriel Method shows why diets don't work "
Great work Jon. You show why diets don't work an explain how to lose weight and keep it off. This message needs to be heard! Too many people are getting ripped off by fad diets and useless infomercial products which promise instant weight loss but promote long-term weight gain. The only way to fix any problem is to fix the cause. You show how to do that! Keep up the great work
"For the first time ever I feel like there is hope"
I bought The Gabriel Method book this week, downloaded the CD and have used it every night since. Already I notice I am much more positive, not just about weight loss, but I’m noticing that things that would normally stress or tire me, simply don't! Also I'm finding I just don't feel like eating the foods I would normally go for, and am wanting the healthier options. If this has happened in only 3 days, I figure it's only going to get better. For the first time ever I feel like there is hope.
"My insulin intake has now dropped to 20 units..."
My insulin intake has now dropped to 20 units morning and night from 60-64 last January. My general health has much improved and I am slowly, but surely, losing weight - 15 kilos up-to-date. My specialist is delighted and asked for the name of the book to read for himself.
"I Love the Gabriel Method Step by Step program..."
I love the program it is fantastic and has helped my self confidence as I was putting pressure on myself for not being able to lose weight. Now the pressure is off!
(Danielle Welch Kingaroy)
"The Gabriel Method programme is exactly what I needed..."
This programme is exactly what I needed to really understand the method and apply it to my life. The support on the forums and the generosity from Jon is incredible. I am so happy I took the leap of faith and committed to the programme. Thank you!
"Wow! I am so pleased to be on the Gabriel Method Step by Step journey..."
It’s amazing the way Jon explains everything about Insulin Resistance. I have had it explained to me before but now Jon has given me the key! I think of the insulin effect every time I want something to eat now. It has made an enormous difference. I am enjoying food so much more now and making great choices Thanks so much to Jon and the team .Big hugs from me you are all a gift to the world.
"This is the best decision I have ever made..."
It is just great and amazing to follow the Gabriel Method step by step program. The core lessons are so interesting and I learn so much! The meltdown has begun for me and I see and feel the fat melting away day by day! Something I never thought possible!
"It's so good to be 'taken by the hand'..."
It's so good to be 'taken by the hand' so to speak through all the steps Jon describes in his book. The Gabriel Method Step by Step program is really designed so you can take weekly steps, that are exciting, not a chore, because Jon gives us weekly visualizations that help you to happily incorporate every single one of them! I feel lighter, more positive and have already changed habits. This is only going to keep going and get better and better!
"I am getting so much out of The Gabriel Method Step by Step program..."
I am getting so much out of the Gabriel Method Step by Step program. I am really enjoying the structure and the support to understand and follow Jon's method. It is really helpful to have the forum for support and to ask/answer questions, post progress or difficulties and such. I really am feeling the fat melt away! Can't recommend it highly enough!
"The Gabriel Method Step by Step program is the best thing that has happened to me..."
The Gabriel Method Step by Step program is the best thing that has happened to me. Ever since I read your book two years ago I wanted something like this. I just love the weekly checklists that show me exactly what to do. Since I started putting into practice the Gabriel method I can see an improved relationship with my husband. I have lost 2.5 kgs and I feel reassured that I can lose my excess weight - something I had given up on. The visualizations are calming and encouraging. Thank you Jon and the Team for this fantastic effort!
"I read The Gabriel Method book regularly..."
I read this book regularly particularly when I need more inspiration to stay positive. I really enjoy Jon's style of writing and the fact that the ideas can be easily assimilated into 'real' lives. It is effectively set out so that I can access the key information that I need, when I need it!
"Lost 4kg this week! Back on track and it’s not even an effort..."
Lost 4kg this week. Back on track and it’s not even an effort, not even attempted. New goal is 100kg by the 23rd of October which will be 100kg loss. I have to get there to show myself it can be done!
"The Gabriel Method Book is such an excellent book..."
This is such an excellent book-thoroughly readable and with its feet planted firmly in the "real" world. I have read the book twice and use it as a reference book. I still feel that I have work to do to completely turn off the FAT programs, but this book is a great resource to assist me with my journey. I am a GP and have recommended to several of my patients that they purchase this book.
“Through reading your book and listening to the evening visualization CD I have gone from 108kgs to 58kgs!”
You are the best thing that ever happened to me, you have taken me out of a swirl of stress and constant weight worry. With reading your book and listening to your CD every night I have gone from 108 kgs to 58 kgs. I look better and sleep better. I trust myself. Thank you so much for being so real.
“I am a Personal Trainer and I currently train one of Jon's success stories from Sunshine Coast Australia who has lost 90 kilos with the Gabriel Method”
I totally resonate with Jon's work and have needed to implement it with myself and my own weight loss program.
(Bianca Aiono, Owner - SCULPTLife Personal Training)
“I’ve lost 23kgs in six months, I am really proud of myself and mostly thank Jon”
On the 14th June 2011, I weighed myself and was exactly 170kgs. Six months later on the 14th December 2011, I weighed myself and I am 147kgs, I have lost 23kgs so far. I am really proud of myself and mostly thank Jon. God bless you and your family with health, love and peace.
“I just wanted to say that I read your book about 2 years ago and have since then lost 75 lbs”
It was the most inspiring weight loss book I have ever read, and believe me, I've read a ton! It helped me figure out why I was holding on to that unwanted fat and helped me convince my body that I no longer needed it. I lost the weight with no extreme surgery or exercise. Thank you so much for writing this book, I have recommended it to so many people!
“The Brisbane Total Transformation Retreat in November 2011 was really great, can’t wait till next year!”
I would like to say that the Brisbane one day seminar was great and I am really looking forward to booking in to the 3 day retreat next year. Thanks again!
(Mel Durham, QLD, Australia)
“I attended the wonderful Total Transformation retreat with Jon in Brisbane - it was really excellent!”
I attended the wonderful Total Transformation retreat with Jon in Brisbane - it was really excellent and I enjoyed it tremendously many thanks to Jon and all the wonderful staff.
(Manuela Kruk,QLD, Australia)
“I'd like to thank Jon and his team for the wonderful experience I encountered at the one day seminar in Brisbane on November 2011. It truly was what I needed.”
I'd like to thank Jon and his team for the wonderful experience I encountered at the one day seminar in Brisbane. It truly was what I needed after finding the Gabriel Method in September. I have been trying to work out why I can't loose weight and last year I worked on what I now believe is the cause. As last years journey must not of been completed and Jon helped me see this. I am now in the process of dealing with that issue and look forward to the fat going forever. The starter breakfast kit was such a wonderful idea Helen. I could start the next day and begin the method with Jon's suggestions. Thank you again, I am ever so grateful that you had this one day event.
“You’ve changed my life!”
Dear Jon. You are my hero! Since discovering your book and CD many moons ago, I have lost 38kg and kept it off for over 2 years! You changed my life and I will never be able to thank you enough! Kindest regards, Vicky, NSW Australia.
(Weight Loss: 38 kg /83 lbs)
“Lung problems have gone, stress is reduce and I’ve lost 30 lbs!’’
My weight has been an issue for years. At my heaviest, I reached approximately 191 lbs (or 86 kgs, 13 stone 9lbs [UK]). Something wasn't quite right, so I decided to move from the UK to NZ to start a new life.
Four years later, the stress was back, work was not ideal, and I was living a life not suited to me. It began to show and my health took a turn for the worst. I piled on the pounds, developed a lung infection, could not sleep and was surrounded by stress constantly. I began showing signs of Lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.
Depression set in and then in 2009, I discovered your book.
Eight months after reading, the lung problems were gone, stress was reduced and I lost 30 lbs (14 kgs) and it has stayed off!
Following some of the simple steps and techniques you shared accompanied by a basic exercise regime has helped me a lot.
Thank you once again Jon, it was a pleasure to meet you and share in your success. Best wishes!
(Weight Loss: 14 kg/30 lbs)
“My friend told me about The Method, and I felt as if I had found myself again”
My extra weight, which came about due to a thryoid immune condition flaring up from extreme stress, only started to go when I stopped fighting the condition - stopped trying to find a cure - and surrendered to it, accepted it as part of me, and asked - literally, out loud - the universe to use it for whatever good it was meant to do by being given to me.
Once I had done this, I reminded myself of my days as an athlete, and my father's pride in me, and as he had recently died, I started exercising again, to make both of us proud.
I also left my husband, who was really not the right life partner for me, and I was living with guilt, (also stressful) and I started a new work contract.
So I had started to eliminate the stress and issues in my life that were keeping me fat. Everything was going well until I had a fall and needed knee surgery, and my resolve was tested. I was just about to enter an ultra-fit competition and the fall made me angry - I didn't do it - and the post-op recovery was awful. I started to put some weight on and that was worse. This went on for nearly a year and half - up and down with the same 8 - 10lbs, and then my friend told me about The Method, and I felt as if I had found myself again, but in an organised and clear fashion, complete with affirmations, meditations and visualisations. I was not on my own anymore.
I'm about 5 lbs nearer to the photo that I use as my visualisation of my ideal me, and that has happened in much less time than it took me to fret about it! It is a photo that was recently chosen from 36,000 other photos to be projected onto the wall of the National Theater in London, and which Ultimate Sports Nutrition asked me to use for an inspirational campaign. To me, it just represents the me that is the best me - inside and out.
