The last thing someone wants to hear about is another weight loss plan or book. There are copious weight loss programs on the market with each one insisting they have can make you super slim in no time. The problem is, that many of us have bought several of these programs with no successful results. Instead, most will experience self-loathing, discouraging setbacks, and/or more weight gain. Even worse, it’s all that mindless, demeaning, and negative inner chatter that switches on by default!
So why do so many people have weight problems even after following a program designed to reduce and trim users? According to Dr. Foster, it requires a shift in our mindset and he talks all about it in his new book, The Shift, 7 Powerful Mindset Changes for Lasting Weight Loss.
