10 THINGS YOU CAN DO RIGHT NOW
To Ease Concerns about Your Weight and Improve Your Health
Have you been told by a health professional that you are having health consequences as a result of being overweight, or are you concerned about having them in the future? Are you a health professional who regularly gives your patients/clients similar advice? There certainly is no shortage of recommendations directing people to lose weight with this or that diet, lifestyle program or eating regimen. The bad news is that there is simply no evidence that any of these approaches results in long-term weight loss for the vast majority of people who engage in them. The good news is that by substituting a Health-Centered Approach for the traditional Weight-Centered Approach, people can reduce their anxiety about food and weight while at the same time promoting good health. This presentation will explore 10 steps that people can take to make this transition, ease concerns about their weight and improve their health.
