9780060391867: The Solution: 6 Winning Ways to Permanent Weight Loss

So you thought weight loss was impossible. You've tried everything: pills, shakes, diets, even surgery, but the battle to lose weight seemed like it would never end. Well, not anymore...

Now, with The Solution, Laurel Mellin, a leading expert on weight loss, gives you a proven, scientific and easy method of weight loss that ends the agony of weight problems forever. With 75 percent of Americans overweight up from 59 percent just 10 years ago The Solution gives millions of people the help they need to drop the pounds without relying on willpower or true grit.

The Solution operates on one unmistakable principle: Permanent weight loss takes going to the root of the problem. There are six root causes of weight problems: two mind, two body and two lifestyle. Each of the six causes has a corresponding cure, and when all the causes are cured, the weight problem is solved. Powerful drives to overeat and be inactive are quieted, and lifestyle changes are surprisingly easy. Weight loss seems more like an unexpected gift than a hard-earned reward. The six cures are: Mind Strong Nurturing enables you to recognize and meet your needs so emotional overeating stops. Effective Limits bolster your control to follow through with everything in life, including healthy living. Body Body Pride stimulates you to honor and accept your body and yourself. Good Health guides you in acquiring optimal personal vitality. Lifestyle Balanced Eating is a simple way of eating that brings you both health and pleasure. Mastery Living delivers the rewards of an active, fulfilling and restoring lifestyle.

The Solution quiets the mind and body drives that are the bedrock of almost all human behavior. As a result, using this approach to lose weight can prompt spontaneous improvement in other problem areas such as excessive spending, overworking, drinking and relationship difficulties. Not only are happiness, health and fulfillment enhanced, but a sense of personal renewal and transformation follow.

Laurel Mellin's powerful "six causes, six cures" approach has been developed and successfully tested at the prestigious University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine, and has been lauded by the American Medical Association, the American Dietetic Association, U.S. News & World Report, Newsweek and Life. Mellin also has appeared on Oprah, Today and Donahue to talk about her revolutionary program.

At long last, The Solution is available for adults outside the hospital setting. Dietitians and physicians from coast to coast have been inspired by Laurel Mellin's practical, empathetic and powerful approach. Now, The Solution spreads the good word to everyone and promises to solve the weight problems of millions.

Review:

These days, it's fashionable to look at the problems of overweight people and write them off as too much food and too little exercise. But for many it's more complicated than that, and Laurel Mellin has identified six root causes of the behaviors that lead to obesity. She believes it's never too late to develop the skills to overcome these problems, whether the root is an inability to set limits or a life lived out of balance.
