And today is a perfect day to start.
Contents of Program – Track Descriptions:
Track 1: Setting Your Goal (19:15) – Learn to relax, relieve stress, focus your mind, and create your ideal image.
Track 2: Taste Traiing (17:14) – Most overweight people are distracted and hurried as they eat, and as a result, they are unsatisfied and overeat. As you go through the imagery on this track, you will learn how to focus your attention, fully taste your food, and feel fully satisfied with the proper amount.
Track 3: You and Food - New Scenarios (19:28) – Most inappropriate eating (overeating, eating the wrong foods) is triggered by signals from your environment. As you follow the guided imagery on track 3, you will learn how to develop healthy responses to challenging situations.
Track 4: Rewarding the Real You (20:19) – One of the most important parts of every behavior change strategy is reinforcement. Track 4 enables you to give positive feedback to your subconscious mind so that it will continue to behave according to the new patterns you have learned.

How "Imagine Yourself Slim" Works:
Are you your own worst enemy?
Do you eat more than you know you need?
Do you lie on the couch instead of getting the exercise you need?
Are you stressed out, overworked, and over-worried?
If you answer "yes" to the questions above, it is because the subconscious levels of your mind are not working in harmony with your conscious mind. The subconscious creates the feeling of hunger, and gives rise to an obsessive behavior pattern often partnered with feelings of low self-esteem. As you work with “Imagine Yourself Slim,” self-defeating behaviors begin to vanish, and the deeper parts of your mind begin to work for you instead of against you.
Losing weight begins in your mind
Anyone can lose weight – simply by taking in fewer calories than one burns. There are many different diets that will enable you to take in fewer calories. And there are many ways to exercise aerobically and burn those calories away. And they all work . . . but only if you stick to the plan. Ah, now there’s the rub; the real work is in getting your mind to choose to eat, exercise, and manage your stress. Change your mind, and you can change your life.
“Imagination is more important than knowledge,” said Albert Einstein – and that’s how it is with losing weight. We all know what we “should” do. But we have trouble convincing that deeper part of the mind, the subconscious, to manage our feelings of hunger and frustration and our eating behavior. This is where imagination comes in.
Your imagination (your thoughts, self-talk, and mental images) is the key to communicating with your subconscious, and through it to bring about healthy change in your mind, body, and emotions. "Imagine Yourself Slim" gives you the power of self-hypnosis, guided imagery, self-affirmation, and cognitive behavior strategies to change your inner self-image. As your inner thoughts, words and images change, your behaviors change, and your body is transformed. Mind over matter . . . and it’s entirely relaxing and enjoyable!
Whatever dietary plan you choose, whether it is one you learn from a reputable book or a nutritionist or even if it is one that arises from your own subconscious – you can change the messages you give yourself. It’s the messages imprinted in your mind – the negative self-talk,– that usually disrupt your attempts to become the authentic healthyand fit person that is YOU.
On "Imagine Yourself Slim," you will find four different guided imagery and deep relaxation programs lasting about 20 minutes each. As you listen and experience the imagery that is evoked within your mind, you will learn to use cutting edge tools and techniques for changing your thought patterns and mental images that will support your desired outcome – a new, thinner, stronger, healthier, happier YOU.
Losing excess weight (small or large amounts), overcoming compulsive eating patterns; healing a poor self-image associated with overweight; terminating yo-yo dieting patterns; managing stress and avoiding emotionally triggered eating; improving body-image and self-esteem; learning powerful self-control and self-empowerment strategies.
This is a training for your mind: the more practice, the better the results. Read the suggestions below on how to use Dr.Miller's "Imagine Yourself Thin" recording:
Week 1: Listen to Track 1 daily for about a week, (twice a day if possible), or until you can relax easily and form a clear mental image of the body you want to have. That image may change from day to day as you develop your visualization skills. In addition, keep imagining this image throughout the day – i.e. take a 2-minute break from time-to-time throughout the day to relax, go to your special place, and picture yourself slim, attractive, healthy, and happy.
Week 2: Listen to Track 2 on a daily basis, occasionally reviewing Track 1 to keep your desired outcome image clearly in mind. You will learn an effective way to taste your food more fully and be satisfied with the proper amount of the right foods.
Week 3 - 8: As you listen to Track 3 you will be guided to visualize situations where your eating behavior gets you into trouble at which point you will write yourself a new script. By visualizing the way you want to handle these situations, you are teaching your subconscious mind how to behave in the future. Throughout this week, from time to time review Track 2 and Track 1 to keep your new self-image and your positive eating pattern clear.
Week 4 – 8: As you begin to make progress in guiding your day to day eating and exercise behavior, begin to listen to Track 4 to reinforce the new behavioral changes and make them permanent. Continue to listen to the other tracks as needed to keep them going. The idea in rewiring your brain is to get out of the old ruts and create new channels for your thinking and your behavior.
Week 8+: Continue to use the portions of the program best suited to your individual needs. For variety, improved effectiveness, and more permanence, you might begin to use Permanent Weight Loss and other programs listed below.

Letting Go Of Stress
Letting Go of Stress - Because unbalanced stress is a common cause of overeating, this program particularly can be of great value. Learn how to relax, clear your mind and recover from the pressures of life.
Accepting Change, Moving On - Sometimes there are emotional aspects to discontinuing certain eating patterns. This program will help you deal with letting go of old patterns and incorporating the new ones into your life.
Writing Your Own Script - As you lose weight, your entire lifestyle will change. This program will help you become clear about what patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving you want to change and give you tools for changing them in the way that best supports your true goal.
If food has been a way that you dealt with anxiety, then it is wise to have a more effective way of coping – one that does not make you fat!
Contraindications and Precautions:
Although there are really no absolute contraindications for the use of this product, people who are severely psychotic or who do not want to at least try to follow the guidance offered will probably benefit little from listening. Listening is also not a substitute for needed medical care or psychiatric care for serious mental or emotional disturbance. In any undiagnosed potentially serious condition such as a head injury, again, there will not likely be any harm, but it would be wise to delay their use until an adequate diagnosis has been made. Although no such problems have been reported, people with seizures of any kind, or neurological or with severe neurorespiratory disease, should check with their primary care practitioner for suggestions regarding the use of this program. Likewise, if you are undergoing psychotherapy, share your use of these with your therapist, as he/she may want to integrate this use with your treatment. And, of course, if you are driving or using equipment that requires your full attention, do not close your eyes and do not listen to any program that you find causes you to become drowsy, distracted, or incapable of functioning safely. Programs designated as “Drivetime” should be used with these precautions in mind.
