Healthy Mind, Healthy Body

The trouble with always trying to preserve the health of the body is that it is so difficult to do without destroying the health of the mind.  ~G.K. Chesterton

An adorned body without a sound mind is really not attractive.  Yet, a sound mind and a healthy body is magnetic!  Despite the fact the popular weight loss programs fail at a rate of 90 to 95% (according to Evelyn Tribole, M.S., R.D. and Elyse Resch, M.S., R.D., F.A.D.A. who are co-authors of Intuitive Eating), we continue to sabatoge ourselve by placing our hope in the next popular fad diet or exercise program.  This is why I, like so many other Psychologists and mental health professionals, have specialized in helping those desiring weight loss and freedom from disordered eating and exercise.  For more information on the 10 principles that truly help anyone wishing to finally achieve that healthy lifestyle that is so repeatedly declared as the solution to maintaining a life-long positive relationship with food and exercise see my book review on Intuitive Eating.
