Weight Management for Your Life

Ten steps to prepare you for adopting a healthy lifestyle

 Charles Goldman, MD 

Concise, research-based, and comprehensive, Weight Management for Your Life gives people who struggle with weight control the information and skills needed to achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Read this book if you are mildly or moderately overweight, if your weight is in a healthy range and you are concerned about possible future weight gain, or if you don’t really know what a desirable weight range should be. This book will help you determine whether you are ready to make a commitment to proactive lifelong weight management and, if not, what actions and decisions might bring you to that point. Follow the “easy action steps” in Chapter 11 and you will be able to say with confidence, "I know what I want to do, and I am doing it!” This book is also recommended for therapists, counselors, and other health professionals who work with people interested in adopting a healthy lifestyle.
