Most people assume that in order to lose weight, one must cut calories and increase activity. And that works, temporarily, for some people. However, it's not a lasting solution.
In fact, dieting is only successful about 20% of the time, according to recent NIH statistics. Yet it continues to be the only way we feel we can affect change.
Author Alyson Mead is a passionate proponent of meditation and storytelling, to be used in tandem to effect healthy changes such as weight loss, healing and increased self-esteem.
Her work combines meditation, to reduce the reactivity that makes us overeat, and personal storytelling, to dialogue with the body and release old, negative thoughts and beliefs holding many back from being healthy.
Her most recent book, WAKE UP TO YOUR WEIGHT LOSS, lays out a 9-week plan that helps dig out troubling emotional issues that cause weight gain and weight retention, and pave the way for a brand new relationship to food.
