The method used in Naturally Thin You Boot Camp is EFT or Emotional Freedom Techniques, also known as Tapping. Several studies show that EFT is effective for weight loss. In an outcome study, participant cravings for treats like chocolate, cake, candy and alcohol were reduced by 83% . A second outcome study of a 6 week online weight loss program showed participants losing 12 lb between the start and end of the program, and a further 3 lb in the following 6 months . A randomized controlled trial showed that in the year after an EFT weight loss program, participants lost an average of 11 lb . These studies show that not only is EFT effective for weight loss, but unlike yo yo diets, the effect is permanent, and that the skills participants learn result in ongoing weight loss long after the program has ended.
