I Can Beat Obesity!

Finding the Motivation, Confidence and Skills to Lose Weight and Avoid Relapse

Jessica Kingsley Publishers
I Can Beat Obesity! is not just about losing weight. It is about changing your psychological mindset and finding the drive and strength to improve your health. Having recovered from disordered eating herself, Nicola Davies recognises that beating obesity is not about fad diets and yo-yoing weight but about your psychological motivation, confidence, and skills to both lose weight and prevent relapse in the long term. The workbook style exercises will help you to develop key self-help tools for overcoming obesity. Focussing on building your emotional wellbeing in areas such as self-worth, confidence, and working towards goals before making changes to diet, this will be an essential companion on the path to maintaining control of your weight and recovering your health and well-being.
