Ok, I admit I am a Paul McKenna fan! In my humble opinion I believe that he understands human nature and has an ability to translate his understanding into useful methods that make a positive difference in people’s lives.

Paul McKenna is best known for his popular hypnotic TV and stage shows. You may also be very interested to know that he runs one of the most successful NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) training companies in the UK.

So, back to the book “I Can Make You Thin”. Paul McKenna calls his approach a weight-loss system.  Essentially the ‘system’ is a set of rules that when followed lead to new behaviours and hey presto, loss of weight.

I say ‘hey presto’ lightly, and of course the cycle of yoyo dieting is a very serious subject.  There is a reason for this.  As Paul McKenna states clearly, the system he has designed comes from observing the eating patterns of naturally thin people.  The rules are simple and achievable.  

The System is documented in a clear and popular style of writing. The chapters cover the ‘rules’ and issues such as emotional eating and how to deal with cravings.

McKenna suggests that you can eat any foods that you want, so there is no need for abstinence. It is how much you eat and how you eat it that matters.

It is a great read, supplemented by a number of short case studies and another terrific McKenna CD, which takes you on an energising journey.  

I highly recommend this book as a refreshing new approach.
