The Secret Behind Subliminal Weight Loss Tapes

by Connie H. Deutsch

Many years ago, I came across an ad for subliminal weight loss tapes. The ad was very clever. It said that you could play these subliminal tapes while you were reading, vacuuming the house, studying for exams, or even watching television and you would lose weight. I had been on vacation and had gained some weight after eating those delicious, calorie-laden, restaurant meals, so I was up for anything that would help me achieve my objective without strenuous dieting.

The company gave you a choice of buying different kinds of music: The Classics, Easy Listening, New Age Music, and Mellow Rock. I was ecstatic. I bought them all and I couldn't wait to hear them.
Each tape came with a printed script of the words that were embedded in the music you were hearing. It said that you have absolute positive control of your weight and that unwanted fat is melting off your body. It also said that you prefer small portions of food and have a strong urge to eat only health-giving and nutritional foods.

The directions that came with the tapes said that for optimum results you should read the script morning and night while listening to the music. Being the perfectionist that I am, I decided that I would read the script at least those couple of times a day that the directions called for, more if I had the time, but that I would keep the subliminal tapes going twenty-four hours a day, every day.

I weighed myself the first day and decided not to get on the scale again for a few weeks because I didn't want to be discouraged if the weight didn't come off fast enough. During this time, my suit skirts were getting a little tight and I figured that maybe my body was reconfiguring the weight. When I finally did weigh myself, I discovered that I had gained twenty-one pounds.

Shock doesn't begin to describe my reaction! I couldn't believe it. In an effort to understand what had happened, I took out the script and studied it carefully and suddenly everything made enormous sense.

The message kept emphasizing small meals and eating health-giving and nutritional foods and that's exactly what I was doing. In fact, I was getting up in the middle of the night to eat those small portions of health-giving nutritional foods, and I ate so many of those small portions of health-giving nutritional foods, day and night, that it's a wonder I didn't gain a lot more weight.

So, in answer to my own question: yes, subliminal tapes do work but you have to read the script carefully to get the hidden message within the hidden message.
