How does it work?

Along with the book, the system contains a hypnosis CD and an instructional DVD to provide complete support for physical and psychological change whilst you lose weight. There’s no physical surgery, no scarring and no forbidden foods. Just follow all the instructions and let Paul help you lose weight.
