Has anyone has hypnotherapy with Marissa Peer? If so, how effective was it?
Views on her book 'you can be thin' are especially welcome! thanks =)
I read her book and cannot recomend it highly enough
It works in an odd way in that you dont even know its working but somehow it changes the way you think about food. It has done something for me that no other diet or book has ever done it has freed me from thinking and obsessing about food. Now I just eat when I am hungry and I dont want junk food at all (previously unheard off I was a junk food junkie).
I did not kow it was possible to be uninterested in chocolate and crisps. I have to say it is the best book ever and not just because I have lost 20 lbs in 6 weeks but because it is so easy .
The cd does it all for you , you just have to play it and it changes everything.
get it and it will change your life and your weight.

Hi <<harmony>> i too felt curious about Marisa Peer but, being a skint student, couldn't afford to go to a seminar or book a hypnotherapy session. I did however buy and read her book and, smiliarly to peri, am very surprised and pleased with the results (so far!)
Additionally, i have recently begun a blog documenting how i have found the process, how my attitude has changed and more importantly how much weight i am shedding
You might want to have a look?
If you do, here's the link daisy in the dust - the Marisa Peer experimentBest wishes and good luck!!
I'm also reading the book and I've found it tremendously helpful. The vast majority of what she says makes sense, but I do disagree with her views on dairy and wheat products.
I think that her book is written using NLP, which is how it is able to effect changes in you--she does say in the introduction that the book is a form of hypnosis and the CD reinforces it once you're done with the book.
I've certainly felt very in control of my eating, despite putting myself in situations which would normally send me running towards the fridge/larder. On the two occasions where I have felt the need to comfort eat, I've been conscious that eating is a choice and both times have chosen not to eat and carry on getting thinner.
Definitely worth a read
Have you seen Marisa's blog? People who have been to her seminar or had private sessions with her have left some comments there...
Hi all, I just wanted to add my thoughts on Marisa Peer's book in case they were useful to you.
I've been dieting most of my adult life, and have tried WW, SW, CD, hip and thigh, Atkins, you name it! They all work while you're on them, but then I put all the weight back on, and more! In other words none of them have ever addressed why I'm overweight in the first place with the result that I am now 5'3" and up to a few weeks ago was 14s 4lbs!!! Most recently I did CD, and 2 years ago I lost nearly 4st on it, but over the past year I've put it all back on and more! I've tried about 5 times to restart on CD, but as I said above they never address the problems for me - don't get me wrong though as many many people have lost weight successfully with all of the above diets, just not me.
So I tried a hypnotherapist before Christmas last year, and for £70 per session she did help me visualise getting slimmer, but again once I stopped going (too expensive!) the old habits returned.
I had seen Marisa Peers when she was on Supersize Superskinny as part of the bit where the journalist would test a new 'fad' each week, and this was the only one where she lost weight without thinking about it. I enquired about having a 1-2-1 session but due to the price could not afford it. I then found out about the book and bought that. I read it a month ago, and since then I have dropped 12lbs and I really don't feel I've dieted or anything! I just don't want to eat crap! I also thought the bit on milk and wheat was a bit strong, but to be honest I've always had a problem with bread - I could eat a whole loaf previously! - and when I have dairy I get a funny tummy, so for me it's better to cut them out completely.
I feel I've got complete control, and I'm practising the visualisation every night. I'm also in the gym every weekday at 6:45 which previously was unheard of! I was going to the gym once every 6 months or thereabouts, but I find now when my alarm goes off, rather than thinking "stuff it, I can sleep for another hour" as I used to do, I think positive things and how much good it is doing me and how I'm becoming the size I want to be every single day!
For anyone with the money, I would imagine that a session 1-2-1 would be brilliant, but for anyone who can't, then the book is fabulous. You just have to concentrate on reading it and doing the exercises in it. I read a chapter every night in bed so I could think about it as I fell asleep and hopefully have it go into my subconscious quickly!
Hope this helps!!
Oh here you are! lol
Thanks for posting that, i think it's so interesting to see how it works for people with different dieting backgrounds and seeing the similarities as well!
Good luck to you and well done on your 12lb drop so far!!
I read about her book here on mini's and I have to say I think it has changed the way I eat forever. It just seemed to make so much sense to me and I suddenly dont feel like I am on a diet I just feel like I am eating healthy for life and that my body will find its own ideal weight. I suffered from bulemia for years and although I am now recovered I still have bad habits and attitudes to food and I still binge and purge very occasionaly , but her book has changed that, I have never felt so content and in control of my diet, I have even less desire to weigh myself - unheard of for me!
I highly recommend it !!

Congrats on the pregnancy too, & now that you've been, educated i guess, about a healthy attitude to eating i bet your pregnancy goes really well without the pounds!lol
Let us know how everything goes?
Have just ordered this book - tried to look at your blog daisy, but it wasn't there!
Never give up on a goal because of the time it will take to achieve it - the time will pass anyway
Oh sorry Dom1979 i deleted it!
But i reposted it in a diary on minimins let me find the link
There you go!
Afraid i haven't updated for a looong while but there should be enough there or a while lol!
Let me know what you think
Totally agree - i have the book and am on my 6th day with the CD. It has done wonders for me so far, barring last nights pizza and chocolate slip up, but that was all down to TOTM. I got awful PMT and HAD to have it - glue or no glue!
Can anyone tell me the title of this book? Thanks xx
