Drop Unwanted Pounds For Good
Brain-Powered Weight Loss, Eliza Kingsford with Debora Yost
Eliza Kingsford is the Executive Director of Wellspring Weight Loss Programs and a licensed psychotherapist. Specializing in weight management, body image, food addiction, and eating disorders, she asserts that what you eat has nothing to do with what you know about weight loss, and everything to do with how you feel and think about food.
The book is a workbook. There are practices to change ingrained behaviors. The idea is to reprogram your mind around the way you think about food, such that nutrient dense whole foods become your preferred choices. Kingsford’s goal is for you to develop a “healthy obsession”.
Following her 11 steps can end overeating and eliminate unwanted pounds. I paraphrase some of them here:
Cultivate a Weight Loss Mindset (Take accountability.) Face Your Biological Truth (Most overweight people are
prone to overweight.) Find Your “Wise Mind” (Mindless eating is a key cause of overweight.)
Adopt a New Lifestyle of Healthy Eating Using 10 Nutrition Principles “Move It Or Lose It” Set SMART Goals and Plans (Specific, Measurable,Attainable, Realistic, and Timely) Use Your Healthy Obsession and Commit to Being a Long Term Weight Controller (LTWC).
In her smart and intriguing book, Ms. Kingsford recognizes the 24/7 bombardment of both food and marketing that have created an “obesogenic” environment and acknowledges the challenge faced in overcoming that.
Siri Says: Seems to me that Ms. Kingsford’s gimmick-free plan is a measure of one’s commitment to successfully reaching and maintaining a healthy weight for a lifetime.
