Is your BRAIN sabotaging your efforts to LOSE WEIGHT or STAY FIT? Don't automatically blame your failure to achieve fitness goals on a lack of willpower. The real culprit might be your brain! Mind Over Fat Matters: Conquering Psychological Barriers to Weight Management reveals why typical weight-loss programs fail...and how to design a lifestyle that works for you instead of against you. Dr. Lavinia Rodriguez explains that most diets are self-defeating because their restrictive and dissatisfying natures cause the brain to rebel. Mind Over Fat Matters gets you started on a healthier, more balanced path to achieving your personal weight-loss goals. Most importantly, it provides you with the crucial link that almost all fad diet programs are missing: the psychological tools to sustain your progress in the long term. Practical and easy to understand, Mind Over Fat Matters lays out a step by step plan for transforming the way you think about food and fitness, tackling your unhealthy habits at a pace that's acceptable and sustainable, and overcoming your brain's natural resistance to lifestyle change. It's time to leave restrictions, self-blame, and disappointment behind...and move forward on a purposeful and permanent path toward health and leanness!
