Athlete, Not Food Addict: Wellspring's Seven Steps to Weight Loss


Athlete, Not Food Addict: Wellspring's Seven Steps to Weight Loss Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Shattering widespread beliefs about the addictive nature of food, Athlete, Not Food Addict offers an empowering method for effective weight loss. Wellspring president Dan Kirschenbaum reveals that weight problems are caused primarily by resistant biological forces, our culture, and a lack of knowledge about how to manage and overcome these challenges. To lose weight permanently, we must become “weight controller athletes” and learn to mold our bodies in a healthier direction, just as athletes do. 8 Steps to Weight Control Power provides the key steps to maximizing ones inner power to control weight, enabling readers to understand the bodys resistance to weight loss and helping them learn how to effectively manage food to decrease the bodys biological resistance. Kirschenbaum promotes the importance of increasing movement, while providing effective strategies for developing an athletes power of concentration through focus and self-monitoring logs. Readers will become proficient weight controller athletes and gain the necessary tools for a lifetime of successful weight control.
