Overview

Get your brain fit--and your body will follow!

Conventional wisdom has always been that in order to lose weight, you need to eat less and move more. But skyrocketing obesity rates tell us that it's not that simple. If you really want to get in shape and stay that way, you need to start at the top--with your brain.

The latest research in neuroscience shows that the brains of overweight people are different than the brains of lean people--and not in a good way. Yet, you can train your brain to think like those skinnier counterparts--and leverage that brainpower to drop those extra pounds for good. In Train Your Brain to Get Thin, you'll learn how to:

  • Control hunger levels to reach and maintain optimum weight
  • Defeat emotional eating at its core
  • Feed the brain the nutrients it needs for optimal performance
  • Trick the brain into working for, not against, weight loss
  • Get "addicted" to exercise, not food
  • And much, much more!
Train Your Brain to Get Thin combines the latest research in both neuroscience and human behavior to give you the brain-changing program you need to get fit, look good, and feel great--for life!

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Train Your Brain To Get Thin was written by two women who 'get' it.... This book is not gimmicky or a fad or a trick, it's just science and common sense and good, old-fashioned time and effort. I love this book and what it has to offer...and would highly recommend it to anyone who falls into the self-defeating trap of negative thinking." - KeenlyKristin.com

"Train Your Brain to Get Thin strikes a nice balance of interesting facts, action items and a whole lot of cool info on the gray matter between your ears. If you're interested in the brain or want to really know the reasons behind WHY positive thinking, visualization and listening to your hunger works, this would be it." - Fit Bottomed Girls
