I was a little hesitant to order this because I've gotten other subliminal/hypnosis CDs that were utter crap. I will start out by saying that it seems to be helping...maybe. I have been listening to it for about a week and have noticed that it's easier to say no to the compulsions that would have me eat dessert after every meal or eat mindlessly because I'm bored.
Having said that, I have to add that the whole production seems a bit...cheesy for lack of a better term. In the first two "tracks" it appears that every form of cliche' relaxation tape has been used...all at once. That's right, there's a rainstorm, and flute, and birds, and crickets, and tinkling chimes, and sometimes I thought I even heard the babbling brook all going on at the same time. I usually listen as I'm going to bed, but if I'm not really, really tired to where I start to zone out and doze pretty quickly, I get too frustrated to make it through the whole thing. In the 3rd "track" the "banging of the pipes" in no rhyme or reason of order is especially annoying - bong, bong...reverberate, reverberate, reverberate...bing, bing...reverberate, reverberate, reverberate...bong, bong... You get the idea.
Because I have had occasion to be awake through much of the production, I have to say I was surprised by the lack of audible speaking. Maybe there's some buried behind all the clatter of noise since it's supposed to be subliminal, but the fact that you can't hear much and what you can hear is again, cheesy, full of echo effects and just generally adding to the annoyance, makes me wonder if my reaction is merely the placebo effect. I gave it 3 stars based on the outside chance that it might not be.

What disappointed you about Subliminal Weight Loss & Impulse Control?
The American Indian desert experience is lost in the bad screechy flute
Any additional comments?
you cannot hide subliminal message in music so painful to hear and expect people to listen for 17 days.

It has definitely worked for me!
I like the break down of chapters and the fact you can either do it sleeping or awake

I was actually looking forward to relaxing during listening to the recording but unless there is something I clearly don't get about this method, I found it annoying more than anything else.
The shrilly pans flute sound drowns most of the other sounds and it came to a point where I just felt like tearing the headphones out of my ears.
And then the voice. I am a fan of scary films, but this was pretty unsettling. Most of all the voice was much quieter than the other sounds (flutes again) and so much burdened with echo effects that I couldn't understand most of the lines.
To sum up, I truly regret spending my money on this audio book.
