Today obesity has grown – to coin a phrase – into an enormous problem, and according to the WHO, it is only expected to double in the near future.
Even children and adults of normal weight and good health today feel under social pressure; countless women follow strict diets despite only carrying less than a stone extra. A distorted perception erodes self-confidence. A weight problem concerns more than just eating; mental and psychological factors are involved in putting on and losing weight.
Subconscious prompts lead to an undetected sense of weight imbalance and of being unlikeable. That is where the crux of the matter is often overlooked.
My book speaks to a wide audience in an accessible style, and is one of very few works in the world in this subject. The target audience is much more than overweight readers; it is the vast number of people around the world who dislike their own bodies for either being over- or underweight, and who attribute their lack of success to physical reasons. It lists relevant erroneous assumptions and how to change them. It also gives fun homework: they are intended to do more than simply lose (or gain) weight; instead, they are designed to create real change. A short chapter at the end lists a selection of testimonials from readers who experienced real change in their lives. A diary in the book testifies to how a highly motivated woman who started dieting and an exercise programme loses all her belief within a fortnight. 📖Example From One Of The Books
The book includes sections on the neurological limitations of weight loss, explaining how the simplest things we do every day without even thinking have an impact on the subconscious – such as weighing oneself daily might actually impede weight loss, something that many people experience.
People are fed up with dieting and exercise, or more accurately, not dieting or exercising. They must involve their minds. Unless they can work out what it is that’s stopping them, weight loss or gain or real change is never going to be achievable. And fed up with dieting, they have lost all self-confidence. That is why the mental reasons for slimming can be one of the most important areas of study in the new century.
My post-graduate research on 1,000 subjects in 2005 was highly successful and this book was the result.
