10 step programme with CD to help us challenge our ‘diet demons’ – unhealthy food attitudes, habits and eating behaviours.
With this book and 90 minute CD you will discover why other diets you have tried using willpower alone have not worked for you. In order to really succeed, your unconscious mind needs to be programmed in accordance with your conscious wishes. With this book the reader will be able to:
• understand the triggers to their unwanted eating and drinking behaviours
• find the right cognitive tools and psychological techniques to deal with them.
Users of the Slim by Suggestion system have found that it helps build confidence, self-esteem, assertive skills and also to balance emotions and stress levels. And those who have been dieting on and off for years find they are able to live more heathily, they look better, feel fitter and no longer need to ‘diet’.

Learn to understand the realy reasons for overeating. -- Sunday Times, January 2001
The emotionally intelligent way to slim, and remain slim. -- Caroline, Workshop participant, July 1999
Georgia Foster and I have been running Slim By Suggestion courses for more than 2 years and it's our experience from the course participants and from our own weight issues that compelled us to write this book. It's full of real people's stories, and how by using the Slim By Suggestion techniques they were able to overcome them.
Our starting point is to explain why willpower won't work, if your mind has no successful memory or impression of 'dieting' or eating healthily then your mind will want you to remain as you are now, or even as you have been before, even if that is not what you consciously desire.
You will know if your unconscious mind has a different idea, because you will have experienced emotional turmoil and falling off your healthy eating programme. Sometimes you have been going along on your new healthier way, and all of a sudden you have the most powerful compulsions to eat/drink whatever you want. You may even find yourself in a giant binge! We know about eating the fridge then beating yourself up in a huge wave of misery and guilt. There is a reason for all of this behaviour.
We are also very familiar with how you are likely to talk to yourself. We call this Inner Dialogue, and for people who want to make changes their dialogue is likely to be very unsupportive. For instance, You might as well eat more of that, because this diet just won't work...you'll probably get even fatter. I am such a failure, why am I even bothering. Slim By Suggestion helps you to understand the voices and learn how to get them to be supportive and not sabotaging.
The Free CD is an integral part of the 8 weeks you will need to get under control - you read particular chapter and then listen to one of the 4 specific tracts on the CD. We aim to talk directly to your unconscious and really let it know what you want, so that it will work with you and your conscious mind and make losing that excess body fat so much more effortless.
If you eat when you are not hungry then this is the book to explain why and through the chapters and the CD we help you to make the changes that you really want.
