<div><B>Mainstream health science has let you down.</B><BR><BR>Weight loss is not the key to health, diet and exercise are not effective weight-loss strategies and fatness is not a death sentence.<BR><BR>You’ve heard it before: there’s a global health crisis, and, unless we make some changes, we’re in trouble. That much is true—but the epidemic is NOT obesity. The real crisis lies in the toxic stigma placed on certain bodies and the impact of living with inequality—not the numbers on a scale. In a mad dash to shrink our bodies, many of us get so caught up in searching for the perfect diet, exercise program, or surgical technique that we lose sight of our original goal: improved health and well-being. Popular methods for weight loss don’t get us there and lead many people to feel like failures when they can’t match unattainable body standards. It’s time for a cease-fire in the war against obesity.<BR><BR>Dr. Linda Bacon and Dr. Lucy Aphramor’s <I>Body Respect</I> debunks common myths about weight, including the misconceptions that BMI can accurately measure health, that fatness necessarily leads to disease, and that dieting will improve health. They also help make sense of how poverty and oppression—such as racism, homophobia, and classism—affect life opportunity, self-worth, and even influence metabolism.<br /><BR>Body insecurity is rampant, and it doesn’t have to be. It’s time to overcome our culture’s shame and distress about weight, to get real about inequalities and health, and to show every body respect.</div>

<h2>How to Develop Self-Discipline, Resist Temptations and Reach Your Long-Terms Goals</h2><br /><br />If you want to make positive changes in your life and achieve your long-term goals, I can’t think of a better way to do it than to <b>learn how to become more self-disciplined</b>.<br /><br />Science has figured out a lot of interesting aspects of self-discipline and willpower, but most of this knowledge is buried deep inside long and boring scientific papers.<br /><br />If you’d like to benefit from these studies without actually reading them, this book is for you. I’ve done the job for you and researched <b>the most useful</b> and viable <b>scientific findings</b> that will help you <b>improve your self-discipline</b>.<br /><br />Here are just a couple things you will learn from the book:<br /><br />- what a bank robber with lemon juice on his face can teach you about self-control. The story will make you <b>laugh out loud</b>, but its implications will make you think twice about your ability to control your urges.<br /><br />- how <b>$50 chocolate bars</b> can motivate you to keep going when faced with an overwhelming temptation to give in.<br /><br />- why President Obama wears <b>only gray and blue suits</b> and what it has to do with self-control (it’s also a possible reason why the poor stay poor).<br /><br />- why the popular way of visualization can actually prevent you from reaching your goals and <b>destroy your self-control</b> (and what to do instead).<br /><br />- what dopamine is and why it’s <b>crucial</b> to understand its role to break your bad habits and form good ones.<br /><br />- 5 practical ways to <b>train your self-discipline</b>. Discover some of the most important techniques to increase your self-control and become better at resisting instant gratification.<br /><br />- why the status quo bias <b>will threaten your goals</b> and what to do to reduce its effect on your resolutions.<br /><br />- why <b>extreme diets help people achieve long-term results</b>, and how to apply these findings in your own life.<br /><br />- why and when indulging yourself can actually <b>help you</b> build your self-discipline. Yes, you can stuff yourself (from time to time) and still lose weight.<br /><br />Instead of sharing with you the detailed "why" (with confusing and boring descriptions of studies), I will share with you the "how" – advice that will change your life if you decide to follow it.<br /><br />You too can master the art of self-discipline and learn how to resist temptations. <b>Your long term goals are worth it</b>. Scroll up and buy the book now.<br /><br />As a gift for buying my book, you'll get my another book, "Grit: How to Keep Going When You Want to Give Up," completely free.

Brain over Binge provides both a gripping personal account and an informative scientific perspective on bulimia and binge eating disorder. The author, Kathryn Hansen, candidly shares her experience as a bulimic and her alternative approach to recovery. Brain over Binge is different than other eating disorder books which typically present binge eating and purging as symptoms of complex emotional and psychological problems. Kathryn disputes this mainstream idea and explains why traditional eating disorder therapy failed her and fails many. She explains how she came to understand her bulimia in a new way – as a function of her brain, and how she used the power of her brain to recover – quickly and permanently. Kathryn also sheds new light on eating disorder topics such as low self-esteem, poor body image, and dieting. Brain over Binge is a brave book that will help many by delivering an informed and inspiring message of free will, self-reliance, and self-control.

<p><strong>Why do diets fail? Is it because of genetic disposition? A sluggish metabolism? An underactive thyroid? A behavioural psychologist reveals the truth about dieting, including how she lost over 50 kg in one year.</strong></p> <p>After years of failed diets, Dr Nadja Hermann weighed 150 kg at the age of 30. All her life, she had heard and read about hundreds of reasons why diets wouldn’t work for her. But when her weight started to seriously affect her health, she took a hard look at the science and realised that most of what she believed about dieting was a myth. What was more, those very myths were preventing her from losing weight.</p> <p>Forget clean eating, paleo, or fasting — it was conquering these elements of ‘Fat Logic’ that nally led to Hermann achieving a healthy weight. One and a half years later, she weighed 65 kg, and has maintained that weight to this day. Now, using humour, the insight she’s acquired, and a dose of science, Hermann debunks widespread lies about weight loss, and shows how it is possible to attain a healthy weight.</p>
