What’s Getting In The Way Of Your Health and Fitness Goals?
There may be plenty of things that are getting in your way. You want to feel better, have more energy, have better focus, lose weight, and know that you are doing something very positive for yourself.
But it may feel like too much of a project. Often it seems that the options either take too much time, may be expensive, or aren’t “enjoyable.” Or, you have tried lots of things that just don’t keep you coming back.
There’s no need to get discouraged! You can start over. You can stop thinking that fitness and maintaining weight loss is never going to be a consistent thing with you. With the right tools you can re-set your thoughts, beliefs and habits to get results you thought were out of reach.
"Lose Weight? Exercise More? I Don't Think So!" brings a whole new perspective to the problem of losing weight and getting more exercise. It explains why it can be so hard and so confusing to do something that we know is good for us. If you have been told by your doctor to make these changes for your health, or even if you have come to this conclusion yourself, this book offers an easy-to-understand solution to the whole mess of diet and exercise.

This is a common sense and easy to read approach to what it really takes to make some changes for your health. It’s very difficult to switch from our beloved habits without the knowledge that Kristen gives us in this book. It makes sense to make small steps toward a new you! Rejoicing in each accomplishment helps, and giving yourself the gift of months, not weeks, is so important. Kristen has written an effective, well-researched guide to give many of us an accessible new approach. JON J. CRAM, MD
