You`ve tried everything : the pills, the shakes, the diets, even the surgery, and it`s been a losing battle. But permanent weight loss isn`t impossible. Not anymore . . . Now dietary expert Laurel Mellin offers a scientifically proven, agony-free, breakthrough program for weight loss that doesn`t require deprivation or superhuman willpower. The Diet-Free Solution presents a practical six-step plan that succeeds where other diets fail because it identifies the psychological, physical, and lifestyle causes of weight problems : the powerful mind and body drives that lead to overeating and inactivity and offers the cure for each. You can change your body, and ultimately your whole life with: The Nurturing Cure: How to become aware of your feelings and meet your own needs The Limits Cure: How to control your actions and set appropriate, realistic expectations The Body Pride Cure: How to turn off negative stereotypes about fat The Good Health Cure: How to become aware of body health and stay healthy The Eating Cure: How to eat regular meals and maintain a healthy diet The Activity Cure: How to maintain an exercise program and find personal time Until you understand the whole truth about your weight problem, you can`t solve it. Whether you`re trying to lose those last five pounds, end a compulsive eating problem, or shed more weight than you ever thought you`d carry, let The Diet-Free Solution work for you now and for the rest of your life! The ability to self-nurture and set effective limits is the root of human maturity, and the foundation for emotional, behavioural, and spiritual balance. Fortunately, the skills to self-nurture and set effective limits can be fine-tuned and readers will learn them via a wealth of practical examples, colourful case histories, and scientific findings that are both fascinating and easy to understand. These skills are effective for a wide range of psychological and addictive problems-from alcoholism and other addictions to overeating, overworking, overspending, and perfectionism.
