Today's image-conscious society abounds with size-two models and ads for weight loss "miracle" items. With yo-yo dieting and obsessive calorie counting becoming a way of life for many Americans, it seems that concern with overall health may have gotten lost along the way.

In Just As You Are, medical doctor Steven Jonas and nutrition writer Linda Konner present a commonsense plan for getting fit and healthy whatever your weight. Each chapter presents a part of the authors' Big Picture for Health-focusing on topics such as how to motivate yourself to achieve a healthier lifestyle; finding an exercise regimen that works for you; reducing and managing stress; and eating for health instead of for weight loss. This one-of-a-kind guide offers:

  • Profiles of some famous and lesser-known role models who are fit and healthy—despite the numbers on the scale

  • Guidance for creating a nutrition plan that is right for you
  • A series of checklists so you can obtain personalized information on health risk factors, nutrition, exercise, and stress reduction
  • Bonus chapters on how to quit smoking and personal safety tips for overall wellness
An ideal book for anyone who finds it difficult to lose weight but still wants to be healthy, Just As You Are is an affirmative and informative guide to total fitness, no matter what your weight.
