Reset Your Thoughts
Start Over

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. Often it seems that the options either take too much time, may be expensive, or aren’t “enjoyable.”

“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.

Kristen Carter, MS

I am the creator of Design for Fitness and have been working in fitness and nutrition for over 25 years.  I reexamine the tools we have been using to lead healthier lives by taking a fresh look at some of the challenges we face. Obstacles such as images put out by the fitness industry, commercialism in gyms, pressure from those selling the latest fad, body/brain chemistry, human nature, fast food, and our own busy lives and current lifestyles.  My passion is helping people become healthier, more energetic, and able to move better by making fitness and nutrition a regular and accessible part of their lives.
