Overcoming Weight Problems
By Clare Grace and Jeremy Gauntlett-Gilbert
How to break blocking thoughts and habits and lose the weight for ever
From their ground-breaking work with CBT techniques in London's only NHS clinic for obesity, Drs Jeremy Gauntlett-Gilbert and Clare Grace have developed this accessible self-help guide, based on clinically tested methods that will help change thinking and overcome weight problems once and for all. How to:
- Develop real motivation to change
- Deal with negative patterns of thinking and blocks and understand why you have gained weight and can't shift it
- Develop a healthy and sustainable eating plan and understand why quick-fix diets are not the answer
- Bring more activity into life over the long term
- Handle difficult emotions and physical feelings
