Publisher Comments:

Many women live their lives believing that they can’t ask for what they want until they change something they’re unhappy with. No promotion until they get new skills. No relationship until they establish their career. No fulfillment until they find love. One of the most common conditions women place on themselves is weight loss—no love until they lose weight, no sex until they lose weight, no happiness until they lose weight. But Jessica Ortner, co-producer of the highly successful documentary on meridian tapping, The Tapping Solution, offers women a better choice. Why not lose the weight and create the life you’ve always dreamt of?
As a culture obsessed with weight loss, we all know the latest fads that claim to help us drop pounds instantly. What often isn’t discussed is the science behind the issue and how learning to deal with stress can promote and accelerate weight loss. Not only does stress create an overabundance of cortisol that is directly related to abdominal obesity, it also impacts behavior, supporting bad habits, including using food to deal with difficult emotions and painful situations.
In this groundbreaking book, Jessica uses tapping to help tackle the stress that leads to weight gain—including the personal stresses of low self-esteem and a lack of confidence. Using her own struggles with weight loss, along with success stories of some of the thousands of women she’s worked with, Jessica walks readers through the process of discovering their personal power and self-worth.
Her program is based on extensive research into the benefits and success of tapping and the hormones involved in stress and weight gain. In this book she guides readers through a proven process of overcoming their dependency on food. She covers everything from the emotional aspects of overeating and cravings, to how to find joy in exercise, the power of pleasure, and how our families and friends may inadvertently add to the problem.
With hope, heart, humor, and science, Jessica weaves a path to a happy, healthy life full of confidence and joy.

Nice try, girls. First, I found you trying to rock out with the Fit Bottomed Girls, and now I’ve found you tapping. Yeah, I’m onto you and your exclusive clubs. So, in the name of boys everywhere, I’ve snuck into the ranks and am walking way with the goodness contained within.


In other words, tapping for weight loss isn’t just for women. Yes, there are parts in here about understanding changes in the body, confidence, etc., but most of these things can be equally applied to men (hey, I wasn’t comfortable with the looks I got when my moobs developed). I get it, these things are real--many women would appreciate this--but really, men will find a ton of value here, too.


Jessica Ortner is a sly one: this isn’t just about weight loss. Tapping is for stress, fear..really, anything. And yes, I know tapping sounds weird. The author admits it sounds weird. But��"it works! Since reading this book, I’ve tried it when stressed about medical appointments, and even before a crazy ride my kids wanted me to go on. Each time, it took me down a notch and made me accepting of the situation. And, when I felt like yelling at the kids? Yep, it worked then, too.


As for weight loss, I can see it working. It is about awareness and finding what is causing the cravings or desires to eat. There is no calorie counting here, but it may still be helpful to combine tapping with your favorite method of nutritional management, though it isn’t necessary. Again, tapping raises the awareness; the food approach is secondary.


You’ll get most of what you need in the first twenty percent of this book. Ortner goes over what tapping is, provides some of its scientific history, and details the strategies, along with providing charts. The rest of the book walks through the process for specific situations. Throughout, Ortner uses some great quotes to go along with the reviewed steps.


Long story, short: it works. Much to my surprise. One of the steps includes accessing your level (anger, stress, appetite) before and after the tapping exercise. It’s psychological, yes. But, it is an effective tool.
