Weight Loss for Food Lovers
Understanding the Psychology & Sabotage of Weight LossBook - 2006
This ground-breaking book explains in fascinating but simple terms why most dieters fail at, or actually sabotage, their weight loss plans. Three key reasons are: 1) A deep love of food; 2) Rebelling against excessive deprivation; 3) There are benefits to being overweight. The question is not What to eat? Overweight people know what they should eat The real questions are the 'Whys': Why don't we eat what we should? Why do we eat what we shouldn't? Why do we sabotage our healthy eating plans? It's not that people fail diets, it's that diets fail people. And parents are failing their children - one of the greatest gifts we can give them is the habit of healthy eating so that as adults this comes naturally. Dr Blair-West is a Life Fellow of the Obesity Prevention & Treatment Society and was invited to present at the International Congress on Obesity. Trained as a Medical Doctor and as a Psychiatrist, he is uniquely qualified to help you end the 'go on a diet, lose weight, then gain it all back again plus more' cycle. This is not another 'diet book' - there are no menus, calorie charts or exercise programs - but it is a book you must read before you try to lose weight again. By calling on the latest research, Dr Blair-West's clinical experience, the 'French Paradox' and even Zen mindfulness, he will share the secrets of keeping the weight off.
