You‘ve tried everything : the pills, the shakes, the diets, even the surgery, and it‘s been a losing battle. But permanent weight loss isn‘t impossible. Not anymore . . .

Now dietary expert Laurel Mellin offers a scientifically proven, agony–free, breakthrough program for weight loss that doesn‘t require deprivation or superhuman willpower. The Diet–Free Solution presents a practical six–step plan that succeeds where other diets fail because it identifies the psychological, physical, and lifestyle causes of weight problems : the powerful mind and body drives that lead to overeating and inactivity栮d offers the cure for each. You can change your body, and ultimately your whole life 執ith:

The Nurturing Cure: How to become aware of your feelings and meet your own needs

The Limits Cure: How to control your actions and set appropriate, realistic expectations

The Body Pride Cure: How to turn off negative stereotypes about fat

The Good Health Cure: How to become aware of body health and stay healthy

The Eating Cure: How to eat regular meals and maintain a healthy diet

The Activity Cure: How to maintain an exercise program and find personal time

Until you understand the whole truth about your weight problem, you can‘t solve it. Whether you‘re trying to lose those last five pounds, end a compulsive eating problem, or shed more weight than you ever thought you‘d carry, let The Diet–Free Solution work for you now and for the rest of your life!

The ability to self–nurture and set effective limits is the root of human maturity, and the foundation for emotional, behavioural, and spiritual balance. Fortunately, the skills to self–nurture and set effective limits can be fine–tuned and readers will learn them via a wealth of practical examples, colourful case histories, and scientific findings that are both fascinating and easy to understand. These skills are effective for a wide range of psychological and addictive problems––from alcoholism and other addictions to overeating, overworking, overspending, and perfectionism.
