"Freedom from Food shifts the paradigm for how we think of food, dieting and weight. The book views food as fluctuating information and energy instead of solid, dense matter. Patricia Bisch is a powerful voice pioneering in an important area of mind/body consciousness."

"Freedom from Food is a small masterpiece. It takes us into a deeper field of reality where thought creates and applies principles and practices to the most physical aspect of our lives. Demonstrating this "Quantum Weight Loss Approach" not only serves to regulate our bodies but also our whole lives. I recommend it to everyone."

"Dear Patricia,
I had been on a diet since I was 12 years old. I was an expert for every diet there was out there.

By the time I was 56 I took a good look at my life. All this dieting never got me a great guy. Why am I doing this? I lived in a state of constantly feeling deprived and/or hunger, not enjoying what I did eat because I was calculating calories, points, carbs, etc. Food had become the enemy. So, at 56, I finally gave up. After all, how big could a possibly get? I soon found out. At age 67, I weighed a whopping 230 pounds. I was shocked every time I looked in the mirror. This obesity was also affecting my health. But after over 50 years of dieting, I just didn’t have another diet in me.

About 7 years ago, I started following Dr. Joe Dispenza. I was enchanted. I became pretty good at manifesting material things but returning to size 6 eluded me. I thought maybe if I had a specialized weight meditation, it might be the catalyst I needed to embody my future life. I wrote Dr. Joe’s staff several times over the last two years asking that he make a meditation CD for losing weight. After all, 66% of Americans are over-weight. It should be a best-selling item. However, his staff would sidestep the request by suggesting existing generic CDs for health. No help there.

That’s when the title of your book fell into my lap. (As I said, I’m pretty good at manifesting things.)

“Diets don’t work,” or as Dr. Joe might say it, “Diets are a matter-to-matter method of trying to make a change, which will probably end up a temporary event.” You and Dr. Joe could have written the book together.

I was excited. Yes! I had been training for your book for the last 7 years. I was ready. I ordered your book, then your CDs. I religiously follow your exercises just as they were written. It took me 4 months to complete the prep work leading up to the 2-week healing. The only thing that I added to your program was Dr. Joe’s “Mind Movie” method, which is a computer-generated slideshow “vision board” set to music.

When the time came for the 2-week healing, I signed up for another Dr. Joe meditation retreat, to coincide with the last 4 days of my 2-week healing. I wanted to total immerse myself in my new belief that “food does not make me fat.”

During those two weeks, I ate everything. I ate fried foods, potatoes, pasta, bread, desserts, potato chips, and any other calorie-laden food that sounded good to me. I ate until I felt lousy from all the unhealthy foods I was stuffing down my throat. I ate until I felt like a beached whale.

Two weeks later, I had lost 5 pounds!!!!!!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Dr. Joe may have opened the door to the quantum for me, but YOU took me through the other steps I was missing in order to change my life."

“I hope this finds you well, Patricia. I participated in a support group last spring and found it very helpful. Shortly after the end of it I did the 2-week challenge successfully. I have continued with the work and had a breakthrough at the very beginning of September doing some important work with my inner child that released a couple of key energy blocks. Since then, I have lost nearly 25 pounds, with weight loss every week continuing. My body is transforming as I continue to shed all that I no longer need. Your insights in Freedom from Food have been integral to this for me and my sense is that I would benefit from a refresher so I will watch for your next support group. Thanks for the important work of Freedom from Food!”

“Years ago, I bought Patricia’s book and I kid you not, I put it under my pillow after reading it the first night, and the next morning I weighed myself and had lost weight! I believe that I had shifted into some new awareness that put me in a new mode. I am re-reading the book now and uncovering old wounds from the past that kept me in the belief of gaining weight from food. Again, as I heal these old stories, I find that not only is weight coming off, but I am naturally gravitating toward healthier choices overall without effort. It’s more of a global vibration of honoring the body and Self through this work that Patricia has developed in Freedom from Food. Thank you for this path to freedom Patricia!”

"I continue to lose weight (120 lbs as of now) and to recommend your work to friends and acquaintances. I'm so pleased your work continues to be available to the general public. It is unlike any other weight loss program and I feel you made an immeasurable contribution to my life and health. Wishing you continued success in your service to the world."

"I think that a support group is an essential component of doing Freedom From Food. We live in a culture that is inundated with 'Fear of Food' consciousness and messaging. Patricia's on-line conference call format is of invaluable help in strengthening our thinking from a new perspective, getting tips and support for following the program, and reconnecting with the truth of this work from the testimonials of other participants. I would definitely recommend this call to anyone doing the program on their own, and groups might use it as a way to empower their collective energy in a common direction."

"I'm glad you are offering this in book form. I've lost 110 lbs since I saw you last. "Freedom From Food" had a huge effect on me in this process, Now I can eat intentionally and when I don't eat I'm not hungry. It gave me a real option of choice both in whether to eat and in what to eat."

# # #

"I notice that even when I pick up the book to read it, I feel a shift in my body. Because I do believe in the principles that Patricia teaches, it is like I step into that "field" every time I'm around her book or the consciousness. So it's a powerful reminder to me on a sub-conscious level that I actually do have access to this connection between thought and matter. It's amazing to watch! I think I'll start sleeping with the book under my pillow."

# # #

"Freedom From Food is about learning to nurture myself and my body from a true place. It's about once and for all clearing the "food issue" and having the freedom and the power to live the life of my dreams now. It's about enjoying whatever food I might want to eat as never before. There really are no words to express the extent of this miraculous, transformational work. I feel very blessed to have found Patricia. Freedom From Food is now at the core of my spiritual practice."

"What this program taught me was a new mindset. It is so amazing not to beat myself up anymore. I used to be the first one to make fun of myself or point out what I perceived to be my bodily flaws. I spent so much time putting myself down. The most valuable thing that I learned from Freedom From Food was not to give food power. It just doesn't even enter my mind. I eat what I want and as much as I want. What drives me now is what makes me feel healthier. I don't always make the healthiest choices in the food I eat, but the choice not to give the food power or beat myself up is the healthiest thing I have ever done. This program has changed my life.

# # #

FFF has given me Freedom, period. It's amazing that when I became free from the obsession of food, I had much more time to be productive in other areas of my life. We are usually not aware of all the negative talk we have created in our heads until we are given the gift of Patricia Bisch and this program. This is the miracle we have all been searching for."

"It is 20 years later that I am sharing my thoughts about the Freedom From Food program. I am still feeling healed with no desire to go on a diet or weigh myself. For me it was really a mental healing as well as a physical healing. I was always obsessive-compulsive about my body and consumed with the problem of weight and overeating. I was a fanatical workout person. I was in the gym 6 days a week doing weights and aerobics plus running, biking and stairs. I could be classified as an exercise bulimic. I would even exercise at night at weird hours. I felt fat and full. I always had to be on top of it. I was so upset and consumed with my body, always asking friends if I looked fat. I was afraid that I had to really keep controlled or I would blow up and never stop. A very big part of my life was spent dealing with this issue. I felt enslaved by food and weight. I was afraid that if I got fat, I would not be loved, and I knew I would hate myself. I felt I was not good enough. I was obsessed with my legs and thighs. I was always off balance eating and dieting, always looking and checking to see if I had gained weight. My eating consisted of binging and dieting over and over again. I was always on a diet.

When I took Patricia's class, the cycle broke, and I became free. I got an in-depth understanding that food has no power over me, and it has no power in and of itself. I remember looking at kids who eat and eat and never gain weight. We dissected in a logical way old beliefs about food. I still remember the concept we learned that full does not equal fat. I don't consciously think of the principles I learned anymore, but I know they are there in my consciousness.

I haven't weighed myself in over 20 years. I so well remember how weighing can trap a person. I remember being astounded that I didn't gain 20 pounds after eating hamburgers, french fries and sundaes. After that time, I exercised but not neurotically or compulsively, and I ate what I wanted. I would eat a lot at Thanksgiving or Christmas or parties and never gain weight. I found that my body would just balance out. I believe that the extra food will just dissolve in the ethers. You don't have to burn it off; it just goes away. I found I can even just lie in bed and it dissolves. It's like air; it just goes in and out. I now understand that matter has no substance. Consciousness is the source of my freedom."

"It has been 4 years since I have been healed from my weight problem and giving food my power. I recently went through some devastating events in my life, which makes this story even more incredible. My father got cancer, I am completely remodeling my house and I am facing some deep feelings of aloneness. I know that without having gone through this FFF program I would have gone up at least two clothes sizes. However, I find I am still losing weight and now am a size 2. I am living proof that the body/mind connection is so powerful."

# # #

"Thanks to Patricia and her extraordinary course, I have experienced over 5 years of living in my perfect proportion while being free from any concerns over how or what I should eat. I've forever banished the word diet from my vocabulary and I've made it a point to no longer listen to outside sources to know what is true for me. I came to Freedom From Food from a desperate place, where the power I gave food ruled much of my thinking. I spent over 20 years being obsessed with being thin and finding the so-called perfect diet plan that would get and keep me there. But, no matter what I tried, the results were temporary and my mind, body and valuable time consistently paid a price. Today, I can honestly say I am free from food!! Through Patricia's classes, I have discovered that our bodies were miraculously created to handle anything and will always fight for our perfect proportions—if we resist all negative thought patterns and man-made beliefs about food. This miracle has forever changed my life! I am free to eat whatever I want, whenever I want! I am free to experience the fullness of life in a way I used to only dream was possible!"

# # #

"Patricia and I spend about 3 or 4 nights a week together socializing. These evenings always include meals. While I have gone through and follow well-known weight loss programs, Patricia eats at least twice what I eat and whatever she wants. She basically eats all the time. She eats snacks that I rarely touch. She eats ice cream, which I have given up! Her weight miraculously stays the same, while I go up and down… mostly up! I use menopause as an excuse, but we're both the same age!"

# # #

"I asked Patricia early on if she could give me one idea that I could use to start shifting my current thinking on food and weight in my body. She told me that just affirming that I trust my body to take in exactly what it needs and eliminate the rest is one way to start connecting. So I did it for one week, every day, every time I thought about food or weight. And in that week I actually experienced a shift in my body! I noticed when I stopped affirming this way, I experienced something different."

# # #

"I find that because I do have a foundational belief that we can create by thought, Patricia's book and program has immediately shifted my 'talk' about food and weight. I literally cannot say that I will gain weight from food, because I know how powerful that thought is. At the very least, staying positive about this amazing body's intelligence is so empowering, so whether I ever lost a pound of weight, I feel myself being much more honoring to myself about myself."

# # #

"I was struggling with some ideas about my eating habits and feeling a little heavy and out of shape, and out of control. Patricia asked me to just work with one principle, that of talking to my body as if I completely trusted IT to take in and eliminate everything it needed to to bring me to my natural weight. Within a day of doing this, I felt an instant shift in my relationship to my body, and my eating habits also changed, in some ways dramatically! It felt like my body was finally thanking me for letting it do its job, which it does so perfectly. Thank you Patricia!"

"This week I am re-visiting the 'don't look in the mirror' conversation— it's just amazing how often and unconsciously we do the automatic 'check-ourself-out' move—with mirrors, clothing, or body parts. Not only do we not have the eyes to see ( we see through a filter of our current emotional state) but it indicates a questioning of the stand we have taken. For me, this is the most critical part of the work, with Freedom From Food, and in my life in general. Being willing to trust myself , to stand in my truth and not waiver- no matter what.
