Stuck before chapter 2

Argh... Chapter 1 is fairly sensible, chew thoroughly and don't be afraid to leave some of our oversized portions on the plate. But the second part screws up the purpose of audiobooks. I use them to work, I cannot do an eyes closed portion.

Great information. The hypnosis recording is bad.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Yes, in case the recordings of the hypnosis are in stereo. Otherwise I doubt someone can actually use it.

What did you like best about this story?

Great information.Very practical recommendations.

How could the performance have been better?

The guided hypnosis said "You have to hear this form the right and this from the left" Unfortunately the stereo recording did not work this way for me.The sound of the hypnosis is terrible in some places.

It works!!

I recommend it 100% to anyone trying to lose weight since it satiates you and makes you think twice about eating more than you have to.

doesn't play in stereo with stereo headphones

in the hypnosis sessions Paul delivers audio to the left and right here, however on audible Android it only comes out as mono. So both ears get both the left and right channels. It reduces the effectiveness because he's talking over himself in both ears. This would be an awesome book and perfect otherwise.

Please try this. It really works!

It’s a wordy review, but hopefully you can relate to one or more of my problems and this can help you too. I wish I knew about this like 8 years ago. No more “forbidden” food!

I stumbled onto Paul McKenna when I was on YouTube. It was just a snippet of a TV show and watched him help a plus-sized lady and her chocolate addiction. After he “reprogrammed” her, she almost threw up when he offered her a chocolate bar. I had to know more about this system. After a little research, I decided to try it and I downloaded the audiobook. It is amazing and it is working. I love Paul's voice, especially the voice he uses during the trance/hypnosis sessions. This program is so easy. It’s common sense. I look back on how I used to eat and yikes! I now see my food problems. Paul helped me realize I was eating because I was bored, I always ate dinner watching TV, always snacking while watching TV – I would eat an entire bag of chips and/or a box of cookies, etc. I didn’t realize what I was doing and I don’t think I savored the taste either. Also, I used to eat until I was nauseous. Pizza – yum! It tasted so good, even after I knew I was full, I keep eating because it was so good, although after I knew I was full, it didn’t taste as good, but I kept eating anyway. No more to all of those things.

I no longer look at myself in the mirror and call myself names.

In chapter 11 of the audiobook, he gives you 2 options – 1 if you would like to reprogram your mind to STOP a craving FOREVER and 2 – if you want to REDUCE a food craving. I wasn’t ready to stop a craving forever, but I wanted to hear it – big mistake – I was so nauseous. I won’t go too far into it, but you think of something gross and kinda combine it (in thought) with the food you want to eliminate. I haven’t “officially” done either one because I’m not obsessed with anything like I was before I started listening to Paul.

PLEASE try this. It’s really so easy. I loved the audiobook so much, I purchased the book too. I just ordered the *CD also. Can you tell I love it?

*The only reason why I ordered the CD (I’m guessing it is identical to the audiobook) is because the “hypnosis/trance” tracks are not in stereo – it’s supposed to be in stereo. He specifically says you will hear things from the right side and from the left side. So, unfortunately some of the sentences are blurred together.

If you say this program is stupid and/or it doesn’t work – it’s not the program that’s stupid, it’s you and you didn’t follow the program.

Oh, by the way, I am 5’4” and I weigh 112 pounds and I eat whatever I want, whenever I want and I am still losing weight. I look amazing! Thank you Paul.

very good audiobook.. wish it was stereo

so far i like it.. it is very well narrated.. the only problem i have with it it's that it is not an audio in stereo.. if you hear the sessions in stereo the experience is way better. still, great job combining the book and the cd in one.

Echo Makes This Almost Un-listenable

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The information contained is clear and concise as Paul leads you through the various stages of the program. I've purchased the book and watched the TV program previously so knew what to expect. It's a good system if you stick with it. You need to stick with it long enough to make the system a habit, a new way of eating. I lost just under a stone, but put it back on when I stopped doing the key points.

The audio quality on this product is atrocious though. There is a very pronounced echo, everything spoken is then repeated very quietly in the background, about 1/2 a second behind the main speaker. This makes it very difficult to concentrate and is very distracting at times. Tried normal quality and enhanced quality and both the same. Perhaps Audible should look at recoding this audio.

Relistening is a must

What made the experience of listening to I Can Make You Thin the most enjoyable?

It all made sense.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Paul's voice is calm and reassuring

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Felt relaxed and happy after finishing.

Any additional comments?

Works wonders, just need to keep relistening

Brilliant

This book has been excellent in so many ways....a few weeks in and I have lost 10lbs in weight and 5" off my waist. I find the hypnosis sessions incredibly relaxing and help not just with weight loss but to destress and feel more confident in every situation. My husband listens to some of the hypnosis sessions purely to reduce anxiety a definite 10 out fo 10!

Works but you have to keep at it

I bought this in paperback when the book first came out. I then purchased it as an App and lost well over a stone. I put back on half of that. Why? Because I stopped following the four golden rules and listening to the Trance Audio. This is so simple and it does work but you have to be consistent. I have knocked off a star from "overall" and "performance" because, as another listener commented, there is a slight background echo of Paul's voice throughout. All in all a good listen.

It actually works!

I tried this first at university and lost a stone and a half but then when I'd lost the weight I figured I'd just stop and obviously things went wrong from there. It is the only way of losing weight that doesn't make you feel bad, guilty and like a failure so I thought I'd try it again after years of dieting. Once again it has won me over. It is such a positive way to address issues and I would recommend everyone try it.
