New Book Reveals How To Eat As Much As You Want & Never Gain Weight - Interviews Available With Author
What if you could eat as much as you wanted, all day every day, and never gain weight? No gimmicks, nothing unsafe. And what if it was among the easiest things you've ever done? Maureen Anderson's book "The Willpower Workaround," readers will learn a new mindset to eating and living well.
Maureen Anderson Says:
One of the boldest moves I ever made was challenging the assumption that food should be a reward for anything. It's like a career consultant friend once told me: you need vacations the same way you need to breathe out after breathing in. Breathing out isn't a reward for breathing in. It's just part of the deal. When you make food a "reward" instead of a normal part of taking care of yourself, there's a tendency to dress it up, to make it "entertainment" (as Dilbert creator Scott Adams says).
We learn in the book that your initial success with permanent weight loss was based on winning a challenge. Do you have any advice for men and women who need a reward to stay on the path toward changing the way they eat?
One key to your success was focusing on how bad certain foods made you feel physically, like the hamburger headaches. Did you also focus on how bad you were going to feel about yourself when you indulged in junk food?
