Lose Weight, Live Healthy is not just a diet book or another step-by-step program, but rather a guide that will help you discover what works for you and how to develop strategies for change based on your own personal values and goals.
The book incorporates the latest ideas from successful mindfulness and acceptance-based therapy approaches to weight management and health. This book will help you tailor nutrition, exercise, and stress management to uniquely meet your needs, and help you learn ways for managing emotions and thinking that can lead to achieving a richer, fuller, and more satisfying life.
Lose Weight, Live Healthy is backed by current research and is based on behavior-change principles that are proven and well established. It offers the latest information on common obstacles — how to increase your motivation; what to do to overcome binge eating; how to make the most of social support; and meeting the challenges that real change presents. Unlike other books in the field it offers clear guidance in considering bariatric surgery. Helpful tips for using smartphone technology and web-based programs are featured throughout the book.
This book is also available as an ebook from vendors including:
This is the first weight loss book I have read that isn't filled with
endless diets that are impossible to live with, calorie charts and lists
of demands to eat this or that. It is more a guide to help you learn
about yourself - what motivates you, what drags you down. The WHY of
what we eat is as important as the WHAT.
In taking a non-judgmental, one size does not fit all approach, Dr.
Nash enpowers the reader to really examine what is required for success
encompassing both the vital lifestyle changes and the emotional pitfalls
that can derail weight loss efforts if not recognized and planned for.
I especially like the many online resources and tips that are listed
