Diet fads and fitness trends may offer the prospect of losing weight, but they rarely work out long-term. The Weight Escape offers something life-changingly different.

Using the mindfulness-based method called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dr. Russ Harris, author of the best-selling Happiness Trap; psychological practitioner Ann Bailey; and scientist Joseph Ciarrochi show you how to make the lasting changes you want. Focusing on the mental barriers that can keep us from setting and achieving our goals, they promote a holistic approach to well-being and weight loss—one that goes beyond meal plans and calorie counting to apply mindfulness to how you live as well as to what you eat. Through practical exercises and personal stories they show you how to:

•••Set goals and give direction to your life
•••Overcome destructive habits and exercise self-control
•••Deal with cravings and stressful situations
•••Develop self-acceptance

This book contains the tools you need not only to get the weight-loss results you want but to maintain a healthy weight—and a healthy sense of well-being—for the rest of your life.
