With obesity levels at an all time high in this country and thousands of diet and weight loss books available to assist, something isn’t connecting. That’s where “The Body Love Manual - How to Love the Body You Have As You Create the Body You Want” comes into play (2010 release Peaceful Planet Publishing). Author Elizabeth “Lily” Hills, who spent 15 years of her life struggling with her weight, yo-yo dieting and binge eating, finally found the secret to achieving her ideal weight, permanently, without dieting.
With the U.S. government spending over $17 billion annually on health care costs related to obesity, we have a huge incentive to take a look at a new approach to losing weight, not only as individuals but as a nation. “The Body Love Manual” is that new approach as it advocates developing a healthier and more connected and responsive relationship with your body so that you can lose excess weight without reverting to the old ineffective approaches such as dieting, popping appetite suppressants, measuring meager portions, obsessive calorie counting or denying yourself your favorite foods. The book discusses how to “Eat in Alliance” with your body, how to partner with it and allow it to lead you to your natural and ideal weight. Readers will learn how to eat in response to physical hunger cues rather than the emotional hunger triggers (e.g. stress, fear, anger, boredom, confusion, discomfort, habit, worry) that make you want to reach for food when you are not truly hungry. They will also learn why disliking your body, and being hard on yourself, stimulates the urge to binge eat.
“This is simply the smarter approach,” says Hills, because lightening up on yourself results in a lighter body. The other way, judging your body only make matters worse, it makes you want to eat even more. So it’s simply wise to make peace with the body you’ll be spending the rest of your life with.”
In “The Body Love Manual” readers will also learn:
*Why diets don’t work and how they can create an unnatural obsession with food
*The Ten Keys to achieving your natural and ideal weight without dieting
*What is driving you to eat when you are not really hungry
*Tools and techniques for handling day-to-day life challenges without turning to food
“By gently leading you beyond gain and loss to an awareness of your loving essence, this book, “The Body Love Manual,” can change your life. I highly recommend it.” said Leonard Laskow, MD and author of “Healing with Love.”
