The No-beach, No Zone, No Nonsense Weight Loss Plan

RRP $17.95

This book analyses weight-loss research to present one dependable plan that really works. Now you can take weight off and keep it off using a combination of proven diet and exercise strategies that require no special props or aids. Information on calculating calorie needs, determining BMI (body mass index) and working out the percentage of fats, carbs and proteins in your daily diet are included. This book is based entirely on: an analysis of scientific studies, so that it is fact-based; research on successful dieters that shows how they got the weight off and kept it off; and, diet and exercise strategies that can be done at home. What is currently on the market - a lot of diet and weight loss books with gimmicks and a lot of fluff, but very few theories that are supported by randomised controlled trials. "No-beach, No Zone, No Nonsense Weight Loss Plan" is the antithesis of these books. The author has reviewed the weight loss literature, found proven solutions and put it all in a digestible format for the lay person.

Weight Loss, Life Gain

RRP $29.99

"Weight Loss, Life Gain" takes the reader on a journey from a dieting 'Scarcity' Mindset, where food is demonised (bad vs good) and permanent weight loss is a life-long battle, through to the eight mindsets of 'Abundant Living'. Free from food obsession, craving and over-eating, this new mindset focuses on replacing comfort eating with comfort loving. Building self-belief, it leads the reader to discover the beauty of their inner self and how to let it shine freely. Presenting new ways of viewing life and food, and including anecdotal evidence, the book has been sensitively written to help people find a winning alternative to a life where food is the enemy and permanent weight loss, a much longed for dream. By recapturing long forgotten habits of 'Conscious Eating', connecting mind, body and spirit once more in unison with food and nature, the reader will discover how to make happiness their pathway to permanent weight loss.


Weight Science

RRP $2.00

Current guidelines recommend that "overweight" and "obese" individuals lose weight through engaging in lifestyle modification involving diet, exercise and other behavior change. This approach reliably induces short term weight loss, but the majority of individuals are unable to maintain weight loss over the long term and do not achieve the putative benefits of improved morbidity and mortality. Concern has arisen that this weight focus is not only ineffective at producing thinner, healthier bodies, but may also have unintended consequences, contributing to food and body preoccupation, repeated cycles of weight loss and regain, distraction from other personal health goals and wider health determinants, reduced self-esteem, eating disorders, other health decrement, and weight stigmatization and discrimination. This concern has drawn increased attention to the ethical implications of recommending treatment that may be ineffective or damaging. A growing trans-disciplinary movement called Health at Every Size (HAES) challenges the value of promoting weight loss and dieting behavior and argues for a shift in focus to weight-neutral outcomes. Randomized controlled clinical trials indicate that a HAES approach is associated with statistically and clinically relevant improvements in physiological measures (e.g., blood pressure, blood lipids), health behaviors (e.g., eating and activity habits, dietary quality), and psychosocial outcomes (such as self-esteem and body image), and that HAES achieves these health outcomes more successfully than weight loss treatment and without the contraindications associated with a weight focus. This paper evaluates the evidence and rationale that justifies shifting the health care paradigm from a conventional weight focus to HAES. The backmatter of the book contains a few articles concerning the merits of open access publishing.
