Jon Gabriel lost over 100 kilos without dieting or surgery and amazingly his body shows almost no sign of ever having been morbidly obese. His totally unique and groundbreaking approach to losing weight is backed by solid, cutting edge obesity research from over four years of full-time investigation of the roles of biochemistry, neurobiology, quantum physics and human consciousness in weight-loss. The result is a method that defies "common sense wisdom" and yet achieves dramatic lasting benefits. Celebrity obesity survivors like Muhammad Ali's daughter Khaliah and Robin Moran, star of The Discovery Channel's show Super Obese, are strong advocates of Jon's Weightloss approach, which has also been featured on A Current Affairand Today/Tonightin Australia as well as on numerous radio shows and newspaper articles internationally. In addition to telling Jon's own story of his amazing transformation, the book reveals why diets don't work and explains a truly unique and revolutionary diet-free way to lose weight. It's based on the fact that your body has an internal logic that determines how fat or thin you will be at any given time. The way to lose weight is not to struggle or to force yourself to lose weight but to understand this internal logic and work with it so that your body wants to be thinner. When your body wants to be thinner, weightloss is inevitable and becomes automatic and effortless. You simply crave less food, you crave healthier foods, your metabolism speeds up and you become very efficient at burning fat, just like a naturally thin person. And that's the real transformation - to transform yourself into a naturally thin person, so that you can eat whatever you want whenever you want and still be thin, fit and vibrantly healthy.

Advance praise for Peggy Claude-Pierre and THE SECRET LANGUAGE OF EATING DISORDERS "Peggy's work begins where attachment to the limiting obstacles of theory end. She has brought back from the dead many young lives the world deemed hopeless. Each living success at the Montreux Clinic is a testament to the energy in her commitment. There are many who possess the title of 'doctor' who have never come close to Peggy's incredible example of the selfless healer. It is true the lights of Montreux are on twenty-four hours a day, as is Peggy Claude-Pierre, the brightest of them all." -- Craig T. Pratt, M.D., chief, Division of Addiction Medicine, Grant-Riverside Methodist Hospitals "Peggy has gone beyond the surface of eating disorders to discover their true causes and then present a valid and proven healing path. In this extremely constructive book, she offers incredible insights into the mind of the sufferer and the myths of eating disorders. It is a map to guiding professionals, families, and victims through the maze of eating disorders. Peggy's message has given me renewed faith that we can become a community of helpers and healers." -- Keith J. Karren, Ph. D., department chair, Health Science, Brigham Young University "Our daughter was an anorexic blessed with a strong, loving therapist and a multidisciplinary Eating Disorders Unit whose members fought for and cared for her. Yet the right medication, the appropriate treatement, and outside experts did not work. Peggy Claude-Pierre is a warrior-- ferocious and relentless-- whose work has rescued a decade of sufferers. The Talmud states, 'If you save one life, you save humanity.' This story, for me, is one of a battle using intelligence, feeling, focus on empirically verified treatment principles, delicate balancing of a complex residential environment, and definable goals to save one life at a time. Amazingly, Peggy is making my daughter a warrior too." -- Edward Feller, M.D., F.A.C.P., clinical associate professor of medicine, Brown University School of Medicine. "Peggy Claude-Pierre has created a paradigm shift in the way we view and treat anorexia. Peggy has shifted the focus of care from that of controlling the symptoms of disordered eating to healing the negativity that would otherwise plague the individual for the rest of his or her life. Through unconditional love and continual support, she enables people with anorexia to begin the journey of self-discovery by guiding them out of the cave of self-loathing and despair into a world of promise and hope. When I first met Peggy, we were both on a mission: hers, to save all the children with anorexia, and mine, to find someone to save my daughter. I have developed the utmost respect for Peggy, for I realize that she has translated 'the secret language of anorexia.' Now, it is up to us to use the knowledge she has revealed." -- Daniel J. Smith, M.D.
