Mind-Body Weight Loss: An Inner Power Weight Loss Program That Will Transform Your Body, Mind, Heart, and Soul
by Dr. Brian Alman
This might be hard to believe, but successful weight loss does not begin with your body. It’s not simply about eating less and exercising more. It’s not just a matter of calories in/calories out. Dr. Brian Alman's new book, Mind-Body Weight Loss, reveals a great weight loss secret: the first step to effective weight loss is more emotional than it is physical; it depends more on how much you love and support yourself than on how much you starve and work your body. And so, to be successful, losing weight has to begin on the inside, in your heart, mind, and spirit. Only when you start to love yourself unconditionally—to treat yourself with friendliness, caring, and compassion—will you be able to lose those extra pounds and keep them off. Mind-Body Weight Loss presents forty-two simple but powerful techniques—guided meditations, mind-body visualizations, and mindful eating exercises—that guide you along the inner path to losing weight and keeping it off, once and for all. As you practice these techniques, you’ll learn how to create a healthy new relationship with yourself and with food. You’ll learn how to accept and express your buried feelings; how to recognize and relax your self-criticism; how to relieve your stress; how to appreciate your body; how to renew your relationships; and how to resolve the family issues that have been weighing you down for years. And, most importantly, you’ll learn how to gain a new perspective—what Dr. Alman calls The Last Row Perspective™—on your life and your weight loss issues. This wider, wiser perspective will help you look at your overeating with new eyes, and find your own best answers for losing weight and keeping it off—answers that work best for you because they come from you.
