Description

A practical guide to changing your lifestyle and achieving long-term weight loss.

This is a simple, but inspiring book about how to lose weight, and how to build a lifestyle that sustains this permanently. The author, Doug Sellman, is a Professor of Psychiatric and Addiction Medicine at the Christchurch School of Medicine. In his mid-forties he realized that he needed to do something about his steadily increasing weight, and set about losing his excess kilos over the next five years. This book tells the story of his journey, of what he learnt, and using his professional training, the basic strategy that he developed to do this. He has devised a five-point strategy that defines a new approach to the problem of losing weight: taking control of your situation; getting active, eating well; learning to persist; and getting maximum enjoyment from your life. These strategies are not magical, quick-fix answers - they are flexible, common-sense applications, which take time. First published August 2008.
