The Permanent Weight Loss Plan by Dr Janice Asher and Jae Rivera + #Giveaway

The Permanent Weight Loss Plan by Dr Janice Asher and Jane Rivera
Published in the USA by Skyhorse Publishing on the 7th January 2020.

Diets come and go, and the scale needle swings as you drop pounds and then gain them back. But what if there were a weight loss solution for forever? Not another fad diet based on deprivation and restriction, but a holistic system for shedding pounds and maintaining your weight?

In The Permanent Weight Loss Plan, Janice Asher, MD, and Fulbright Open Research Fellow, Jae Rivera, reveal (from their own first-hand experiences) that it’s not just about the food you eat or don’t eat—it’s about a mindset and lifestyle change. After collectively losing 170 pounds and maintaining their weight for years, Janice and Jae share scientific evidence, personal experiences, and practical insights on how you can successfully reframe your relationship with food.

It’s about stopping the shame associated with body size, recognizing instances of disordered eating, equipping yourself with the knowledge of what behaviors contribute to lasting weight loss, and making use of proven strategies. Get actionable tips on how to:

Overcome barriers like stress, shame, and emotional eating
Escape the comfort food circle of hell
Eat food that nourishes your intestinal microbiome and brain
Replace unhealthy habits with new ones that will treat your body well
Boost your metabolism by eating during the right times of the day
Commit to an exercise regime you can enjoy
Transform your kitchen from danger zone to a safe space
Survive potential landmines like holidays and parties
Develop strategies for not gaining back the weight you lose
Stop the cycle of fat-shaming and treat yourself with kindness

Complete with 26 recipes for cauliflower quinoa puttanesca, “umami bomb” roasted portabella mushrooms, blueberry breakfast smoothie, curried lentil salad, and more, The Permanent Weight Loss Plan encourages readers, with gentle humor and compassion, to embrace a paradigm shift and transform their lives for good.

  2. I know a lot of people have problems with weight loss, myself included so this would probably be of help to some. I stopped dieting a long time ago. Life is too short not to enjoy it.

    1. I could never stick at calorie diets or anything like that. It was finding a type of exercise I could actually enjoy and starting to cook healthily that helped me to lose weight
