This book presents the proven counseling approach known as motivational interviewing (MI) and shows exactly how to use it in day-to-day interactions with clients. MI offers simple yet powerful tools for helping clients work through ambivalence, break free of diets and quick-fix solutions, and overcome barriers to change. Extensive sample dialogues illustrate specific ways to enhance conversations about meal planning and preparation, exercise, body image, disordered eating, and more. Reproducible forms and handouts can be downloaded and printed in a convenient 8 1/2" x 11" size.

From an obesity and neuroscience researcher with a knack for engaging, humorous storytelling, The Hungry Brain uses cutting-edge science to answer the questions: why do we overeat, and what can we do about it? No one wants to overeat. And certainly no one wants to overeat for years, become overweight, and end up with a high risk of diabetes or heart disease--yet two thirds of Americans do precisely that. Even though we know better, we often eat too much. Why does our behavior betray our own intentions to be lean and healthy? The problem, argues obesity and neuroscience researcher Stephan J. Guyenet, is not necessarily a lack of willpower or an incorrect understanding of what to eat. Rather, our appetites and food choices are led astray by ancient, instinctive brain circuits that play by the rules of a survival game that no longer exists. And these circuits don’t care about how you look in a bathing suit next summer. To make the case, The Hungry Brain takes readers on an eye-opening journey through cutting-edge neuroscience that has never before been available to a general audience. The Hungry Brain delivers profound insights into why the brain undermines our weight goals and transforms these insights into practical guidelines for eating well and staying slim. Along the way, it explores how the human brain works, revealing how this mysterious organ makes us who we are.

With easy tweaks to everyday decisions, you'll enjoy your meals, have tons more energy and most of all, you'll achieve long-term weight loss success without food restrictions. Georgie Fear is a registered dietitian and nutrition expert whose specialty is one-on-one coaching to help people lose weight permanently. Lean Habits is her personalized plan. It is not a diet; it's a lifestyle. Other diets that dictate calorie counting or food restrictions simply don't work because they're not sustainable.

Lean Habits will help you understand your relationship with food, your habits that are keeping you from weight loss and how you can start listening to your body's real needs. Simple modifications will be your stepping-stones to a healthy life in which you lose weight while still eating the food you love. Georgie's strategy is founded on rock-solid modern scientific data and is accessible to everyone—even those who love chocolate. This is the weight-loss guide for real people, so, if you're ready to get started on your real-life weight loss journey, take a deep breath and let's get lean!

Everything you’ve been told about exercise is wrong! For decades we’ve been told that cardio exercise is a silver bullet against weight gain and obesity and a panacea against heart disease. We’ve been told that hours spent jogging, cycling, and in aerobics classes will repay us with years of healthy (and fit!) longevity. We believed it. Today, we are heavier and more out of shape than ever—and likely suffering from overuse injuries incurred from years of prolonged cardio exercise. New research is showing that long cardio and endurance workouts do not get us slimmer or stronger. They do not promote longevity or protect against heart disease. In fact, they may do the opposite by putting excessive strain on our heart, joints, and muscles and slow our metabolism. The Great Cardio Myth will show you how to get the same or better fitness results in one-fifth the time of a typical cardio session and debunk unproductive exercise habits. - Lose weight (and keep it off) in just a few short workouts per week. - Keep your metabolism active for hours after a workout. - Strengthen and protect your heart, joints, and muscles. - Burn through belly fat—and other stubborn areas quickly.

Contrary to what most diets would have you believe, the human body does not recognize all calories as equal. Some foods are used to boost brain power, fuel metabolism, and heal the body—while others are simply stored as fat. In The Calorie Myth, Bailor shows us how eating more of the right kinds of foods and exercising less, but at a higher intensity, is the true formula for burning fat. Why? Because eating high-quality foods balances the hormones that regulate our metabolism. When we eat these foods, our bodies naturally maintain a healthy weight. But when we eat sugar, starches, processed fats, and other poor-quality foods, the body's regulatory system becomes "clogged" and prevents us from burning extra calories. Translation: Those extra 10 pounds aren't the result of eating too much . . . they're the result of eating the wrong foods! Bailor offers clear, comprehensive guidance on what to eat and why, providing an eating plan, recipes, and a simple yet effective exercise regimen. Losing weight doesn't have to mean going hungry or spending hours at the gym. The Calorie Myth offers a radical and effective new model for weight loss and long-term health.
