After a couple of weeks, I realised that I no longer cared about how thin I did or didn't get, I would keep following Paul's plan because I felt so much better than I had in years. I am losing weight very slowly (which I think is the best way) just around 1 to 2lb at each 15day interval but it is consistent (10lb loss so far). There are no up and down times and, in my case, I am enjoying my food more than I can ever remember. I was someone who never ate between meals, had no snacks in my desk. Now, for the first time ever, I have snacks of different types in my desk that I can choose from when I get hungry, but that can just stay there when I am not. At last I can relax about food. I just want to say 'Thank you Paul McKenna, you have made an incredible difference to my life'.
A couple of points (especially in view of the first customer review on this website): this book was only published a couple of weeks ago, and as it's a 90 day journal, nobody - including me - can be in a position to make a final judgment on whether it works yet (unless they somehow got hold of a preview copy)! The system is dramatic in terms of turning your attitudes around and getting results, but it's not a crash diet or a quick fix - it's for life. So give it time.
Also, you really do need "I Can Make You Thin" as well - it describes Paul's weight-loss system in much more detail, and includes the wonderfully indulgent mind-programming CD Paul refers to each day. I have been using the system from "I Can Make You Thin" for 5 months and have lost a stone easily (see my rave reviews under the other book!). I did keep my own diary during this time, but this new book has given me a really helpful boost and helped me re-focus after Christmas.
One final thing: I don't believe McKenna ever says "just say no" in the book - he is very anti the idea of willpower, and always phrases things in a positive way that helps you feel really good about yourself. The only thing he insists you say "no" to is low-fat, cardboard-tasting diet food (except he's not quite as polite as that about it)!
I have owned the original ICMYT book for about a year now, and find that the techniques do work if you do them regularly and are consistent. However, this was my biggest problem - not staying focused. That's where this Journal comes in handy - if you're having to consult and write in it every day, you'll find the techniques become second nature.
Journaling has been shown to be as much a part of effective weight loss as eating right and getting more exercise. The system itself is pure common sense - don't overeat, get off your butt - but common sense doesn't help you address why overeating happens, reduce/eliminate cravings or motivate you to exercise. In addition, you'll recondition your mind to enjoy whatever is put in front of you, no guilt trip.
This book is a great companion but does not work as a standalone. Spend the money and buy both this and the original together if you don't already have the ICMYT book. If you don't think it's value for money, check out the price of the Paul McKenna weight-loss seminar... if you don't have a spare few hundred lying around, the books are just as good!
