Think about it for a moment. What other substance on the planet is good for you, is necessary for life, and is fun? Food is the only answer. And so begins our relationship with food. Healthy or unhealthy, we all have behaviours around how we deal with food. When these behaviours become unmanageable our health and our weight can suffer.

Obesity specialist Dr. Ali Zentner has written the ultimate prescription for how to develop a healthy relationship with food. The Weight-Loss Prescription combines a realistic approach to weight loss and better health using practical tips, strategies, and inspiring stories on how to make a positive and permanent change on how and what we eat.

Our behaviours around food are universal. Whether you are an emotional eater, a fast food junkie,a calorie drinker, or a portion distorter, the book includes expert advice and scientifically based information that helps you understand your eating behaviour and make a change for the better.

The Weight-Loss Prescription sets out a comprehensive set of food rules and a guide on how to follow them. You will learn how to embark on a realistic exercise plan and how to make exercise a permanent part of a healthy lifestyle. Included are e=meal makeovers and recipes that give you sensible solutions on how to fit healthy eating into a bust schedule.

The Weight-Loss Prescription is for everyone who wants both a better relationship with food and a healthier future.
