How The Gabriel Method was Discovered?
Before getting into the details of The Gabriel Method, it’s important for you to know how and why The Gabriel Method was discovered. Gabriel was seldom a big guy. He had genetically slender body but due to getting over-stress from his work life, he began gaining weight. In the meanwhile, he tried to shed weight but he was not very serious about that.
However, after he grew 400 pounds, he really got worried about his weight because his rising weight had become a big stumbling block in his day to day life. He tried all the diet plans, crash diets, everything claiming to melt weight. However, to his great disappointment, there was not much effect on his body. Then Jon started figuring out the reasons why our body gains weight.
He studied mind books and tried to find reasons why our body behaves in a certain way, and what are the causes of cravings that lead to obesity. Finally, he reached to the root cause of all the problems and started working on his mind. Slowly and gradually, he lost 220 pounds. Thereafter he compiled his personally used ways and techniques into The Gabriel Method.
