2009 Midwest Book Awards finalist: No stomach surgery, no pills, and no kooky dieting. THINKING SKINNY by Nadia Giordana outlines an easy and effective methodology for boosting your weight loss results regardless of how much you plan to lose. The method involves using creative visualizations with a technique called "Focusing Forward" and a daily dialogue with God. Nadia says, "This is not a diet in the trendy sense of the word. There are plenty of hot new diet books on the market at any given time and they all work for a while. If you apply this technique to a sensible eating plan, I am confident you will lose more weight than you dared to dream and you will keep it off for the first time in your life." Exercise is not an absolutely necessary component of this program, but if you are able to be active, your results will be even better.

Author Nadia Giordana went from weighing 215 pounds to 127, losing 88 pounds in a period of 14 months. To meet her goal, she used a combination of healthier eating, calorie reduction, creative focused visualizations, and a daily dialog with God as her primary tools. In her words, "If you can envision the body you want, you can embody that vision; and it isn't the individual diet you choose that matters most, it's the method you use with it."
