How Gay lost 120 pounds and kept it off for more than 40 years… without exercise or a special diet:
For the first 25 years of my life, I was fat and unhealthy.
At one point, at the age of 25, I weighed 320 pounds and smoked 2 to 3 packs of cigarettes a day!
Granted, I wasn’t fat because I didn’t know what healthy eating looked like. I could tell you the exact calorie counts
of almost all types of foods and I knew exactly what the human body needed in terms of nutrients and protein.
Yes, I was well-read and educated in what it took to lose weight. I had all sorts of theories and personal strategies about what
to do to slim down, some of which worked for a short while, some of which didn’t work at all.
I didn’t like being fat and I always knew, in the back of my mind, that I had to do something about it.
And yet, despite how much I thought about it and everything I tried, I kept steadily gaining weight.
Then one day, while I was walking alone on a snowy road in the New England town where I lived, something happened to change all
I slipped and fell on an icy patch, hit my head, and got knocked out!
I wasn’t knocked unconscious – rather, I was knocked out of my old way of thinking. I
entered an altered state of consciousness.
Up until then, I was in the dark about why I was overweight.
For the first time I was MORE conscious than ever. I was enlightened.
As I lay there flat on my back, staring up at the winter sky, a well of emotions surged within me. It was as if I was looking down
at myself and seeing myself clearly for the first time.
This moment of clarity that came as a result of this physical jolt changed everything for me.
It was at that point that the course of my entire life took a wild turn.
It was as if a light had been turned on. I suddenly realized WHY I was fat and unhealthy!
And for the first time ever, I knew exactly what I needed to do about it.
The Epiphany That Led Me to Losing More Than 100 Pounds Over the Course of a Year
Until that day on that snowy road, I blamed everyone and everything for being fat.
I blamed my lack of willpower.
I blamed the constant temptation of high-calorie junk foods.
I blamed my character for not being able to say “no” to unhealthy habits, or not being able to stick to a diet and
I blamed a job I hated and a bad relationship for my lack of motivation. I told myself that if only I had more support, and
wasn’t so stressed all the time, I’d have more time to focus on my health.
I blamed God, fate and genetics. My father was fat, so I must have inherited my body from him.
In the act of putting the blame outside of myself, I had sealed my fate. I could never face the truth of what was REALLY going on
inside of me. And therefore, I could never solve my weight problem.
Laying on my back on that icy road, my epiphany was this:
There was something that I needed to face about myself and my life, and until I could do that, I would always remain
The reason I was fat and unhealthy had nothing to do with outside circumstances. Therefore, the solution to my problem lay within
Your Weight Is Telling You Something Isn’t Working Right In Your Life
I won’t say that losing 100 pounds over the course of the following year was easy. But it was a
simple process born of a radical idea:
You must transcend your regular programming and find the creative essence at the core of who you are. Unless you do, you
will forever feel “hungry” or empty in some way, and you will always find ways to fill that hunger with food and
other unhealthy habits.
Once I got to the root of who I was, and why I was actually keeping myself fat, I was able to make healthier choices every day.
I no longer felt the need to eat more than I needed to, or eat to feed the emptiness within.And the pounds started to come off.
This process I discovered had other benefits to my well-being. I also quit smoking, ended the difficult and unsatisfactory
relationship and began doing more of the work I loved.
I met the love of my life, Katie, and got married. My career took off a decade after that.
In effect, there were a host of other things that weren’t working in my life, not just my weight, and they all stemmed from
the same exact place: my inability to face what I needed to face about myself.
“I Know What I Have To Do To Lose Weight, So Why Can’t I Do It?”
I told my story of weight loss in workshops and seminars, and people with weight issues were intrigued. They wanted me to help
them with their life-long weight struggles the same way I helped myself.
I would hear similar stories to mine, of people who:
- Tried various diet and exercise programs
- Hired nutritionists, talked to doctors, read the newest diet books
- Counted calories
- Joined popular weight loss programs
…and were STILL struggling to lose weight and keep it off.
One man told me that he had lost (and regained) about 3,000 pounds on different diets throughout his life.
The most common complaint I would hear from those struggling with their weight was that they knew what they HAD to do, they just
couldn’t do it for some reason.
Have you gone on a diet and then gained all the weight back, and then some?
Have you told yourself you’d try to eat healthier but succumb to temptation at every turn, and then feel horrible
If so, and if you’ve spent a lifetime trying and failing to manage your weight and well-being, then the reason you’re
still fat has little to do with willpower or the right diet.
It has everything to do with what your body and spirit is trying to tell you about your life.
The 4 Secrets to Permanent
Weight Loss and Overall Well-being
The work I did with individuals and groups led me to discovering that if you have “tried everything” to lose weight
without success, there are 4 steps, or secrets, to achieving permanent weight loss:
1. Your extra weight is your spirit trying to get your attention about something you need to face about
Your extra weight is a subconscious reminder. It’s a reminder of something about your past or a truth about yourself that
you’re not willing to admit. Until you face that truth, you’ll continue to struggle with addictive eating
2. You must uncover the subconscious commitments you’ve been making and make new, conscious commitments in order to
bring your spirit into your life and lose weight. Only then will you become truly enlightened – in body and
If someone came up to me when I was 25 and told me that I was obviously committed to being fat, I would have been offended.
Obviously I was committed to being slender because I was so focused on getting there. However, my results told a different
Your results tell your story. If you’re still overweight and unhealthy, it’s because you’ve made certain
subconscious commitments to being that way, and you must uncover those commitments before you can hope to have different
3. There are several specific techniques, each quick and natural, that can make your journey of weight loss much more
No, this is not calorie counting or portion control or restricting certain foods. It’s not an exercise program, either.
These are techniques that get to the bottom of hidden emotions and long-withheld truths to help you get in touch with your
natural state of well-being.
4. You must learn to love the unlovable within yourself.
Being overweight is a sign that there’s something you don’t love about yourself. Although you may not have had any
control over the circumstances that led you to not love that part of yourself, you do have control over being able to love
and accept it now. This is a crucial step in the journey to complete well-being.
Once you’re able to complete these 4 steps, you will naturally start to make better and healthier choices. It won’t be
easy – it wasn’t for me – but I can tell you that once you embrace the process, it will feel simpler than
any diet or exercise plan you’ve ever tried.
Introducing Enlightened Weight Loss:
A Video Program That Will Show You How To Lose Weight Without Special
Diets or Exercise and Keep It Off For the Rest of Your Life
When those who had been suffering and struggling with being overweight and unhealthy came to me for advice, I led them on a
journey that was unlike any they’d ever taken before when it came to altering their nutritional habits.
I didn’t tell them what to eat, or how to exercise. I knew that the core of their struggle was not what they were or
weren’t eating, it was an inability to love some part of themselves – and I’m not talking about their
thighs or bellies.
I’m talking about being able to love who you are, deep inside. I’m talking about being able to love that part of you
that feels shame, longing, regret, and sadness.
I’m talking about loving that part of yourself that you don’t want to FEEL.
If you don’t love yourself, you’ll not only make unhealthy choices in the way you treat your body, but you’ll
likely also make unwise choices in other areas of your life.
You may stay in a toxic relationship too long.
Work at a job you hate.
Put up with bad behavior from partners, co-workers, bosses, parents or children.
These are all symptoms of the same exact core problem: Your inability to love and accept some part
And it’s why my unique solution was not only successful in helping clients lose weight, but it helped improve ALL aspects of
The secrets and techniques that I shared with clients one-on-one in private practice for two decades were so successful that I
wanted to put them all into one comprehensive program that anyone could access and benefit from.
Therefore, I created a video program where I speak to you directly about my personal journey with weight loss, what I discovered
about the spiritual and psychological reasons behind unhealthy habits, and what you can do, starting today, to get back on
the road to more vibrant health.

tried up until now to lose weight has not led to permanent success.

Being Fat Is a Gift That Can Lead You On a Spiritual Journey of a Lifetime
Being fat was the best thing that ever happened to me. That may sound like a strange statement, because we are told by society
that being fat is undesirable, unhealthy and a burden. It can be all those things, but it is also a gift.
It was a gift for me because it led me on a spiritual journey that uncovered things about myself I would not have otherwise faced
or accepted. My struggle with weight brought me to a place of deep realization about living consciously with my spirit.
This led me to being awake for the first time in my life to who I was and what I needed to do in order to be in harmony with
others and with myself.
My weight loss journey 40 years ago not only helped me permanently shed 120 pounds, but showed me the path to lasting
