Within Review: Spiritual Awakening & Weight Loss

Posted on Feb 18 2014 - 10:13pm by Susan Bewley

Disclosure: I received these products for free to review. The opinions in my review are honest and my own.

For many of us, the hardest part of weight loss is getting started. We know in the end that weight loss is simple science, counting calories and exercising. Yet, sometimes it feels like something is missing, an important step that is keeping us from losing weight. You may be surprised to know that most of it revolves around your attitude – how you personally feel about losing weight. While I had never been a huge fan of spiritual books, i was intrigued when I read information about Within and its unique approach toward weight loss. Wanting to know more, I agreed to review the book, excited to what it could offer to help with my own weight loss.

Within: What is It

Looking for a book to help you find that missing link between you and weight loss? In Within, Dr. Habib Sadeghi uses a mix of spiritual teaching and science to teach others about the secret to weight loss – self-love. While the method may seem far fetched, he goes through steps showing why people haven't succeeded and what they can to take charge of their own lives, and use the latest science to help them take care of both their body and spirit. Once you have read this book and done a variety of the exercises, you may well no longer be cynical about the book, and understand why the center of taking care of yourself starts with your mind!

Within: My Thoughts

Before I go any further into this review, I want to make it clear that this is a book about getting attuned with yourself and what your body and the world are telling you. Most of the tips in this book can be used for just about anything, but the main focus is weight loss. While we know that counting calories and exercise will help you lose weight, you won't go anywhere if you don't believe in yourself, adopt a positive attitude, and get to the root of why you have a weight problem. The book is written to be very down to earth and personal, giving you your own guide to helping you love yourself and your body as you go through your journey. While I was a bit cynical about certain parts of the books, I do think it is helpful and will be taking some of the advice, especially in the form of meditation and thinking through some of my decisions. Based on my reading of Within, I am happy to give this book an B+ rating

    This book sounds like a very good book to look into the my spirtual side and to get help with my weight loss becasue a lot of times the reason I can not lose weight is because of the emotional eating. I would love to read this interesting book.

    A good attitude improves most things and maybe a book like this could help. It would probably make you explore priorities.

    I wonder about this book lol. Some people who write books will use use anything to make money!!! I am a christian, and I agree that we should all like ourselves, and I agree that alot of our problems are from our thoughts. But I find it hard to connect God and weight loss. I dont think this is something I would prefer to read. Its just me ok. We all have opinions. and opinions are like noses. They all have holes in them 🙂

      It really isn’t spiritual in the way of religion. More of the becoming one with ourselves and understanding how our thoughts and bodies interact.
