More About This Book

Overview

Michael D. LeBow, PhD.
is a clinical psychologist and professor of psychology. One of his specialties is helping overweight and extremely overweight people. But of course, long before he learned how to do that, he had to finish high school. Harsh years for him. Harsh, because in high school he was extremely heavy, and this very visible fact unleashed a horde of weight bullies. They were often slim or muscular teenagers who acted as if they had license to regularly belittle, torment, and tease. Weight bullies enjoyed hurting. Like them, but not intent on damaging, were the weight blamers. They could be teenagers but usually were adults-family members, teachers and doctors. Blamers freely advised Michael to stop being so weak and to stop being such a glutton in order to stop being so fat. Some even promoted their favorite "obesity cures," pseudo-remedies that varied from worthless to harmful.
Over the years, Dr. LeBow has tried to uncover answers to the weight puzzle confronting teenagers. He has written this book for you, a teenager who needs, not criticism, but practical information:
• what "too heavy" really means and how it is measured
• why some teenagers become too heavy and some do not
• where online is the best advice on eating smarter and moving more
• what drives weight bullying and what to do about weight bullies
• how to uncover personally troublesome places involving eating-eating hotspots
• how to train the brain to be satisfied with smaller portions and fewer helpings
• how to become active for at least 60 min a day, and earn money for doing so
• why it's important to talk to a doctor before trying to manage weight
• how to accept responsibility for managing weight
• how to be upbeat about who you are
• how to lose overweight without losing any weight
• how to avoid the 10 snakes of weight mismanagement
• and much much more...
