Undo Overeating and Halt Weight Gain with this Breakthrough, Science-Backed Program

San Francisco, CA, November 9, 2020 — The premise of Whole Person Integrative Eating: A Breakthrough Dietary Lifestyle to Treat the Root Causes of Overeating, Overweight, and Obesity is simple yet powerful: Identify the reasons you overeat (your overeating styles) and gain weight—with the illuminating self-assessment quiz—then overcome overeating and lose weight by replacing your overeating styles with the antidotes: the elements of the Whole Person Integrative Eating program. 

By shedding light on the root causes of overeating, holistic nutrition researcher Deborah Kesten, M.P.H., and behavioral scientist Larry Scherwitz, Ph.D., present a program that empowers readers with a personalized plan, and in turn new hope and new choices to help them reduce overeating, lose weight, and keep it off. “The combined effect of all seven ‘ingredients’ of Whole Person Integrative Eating makes the transformative difference,” says Kesten.  

Plus, you’ll discover 65 delicious recipes based on the Whole Person Integrative Eating (WPIE) program to jumpstart your optimal-eating efforts.

WPIE is not a diet that a person goes on … then off. It is a scientifically sound, dietary lifestyle designed to be practiced for a lifetime. 

"If people follow the revolutionary program outlined in this game-changing, insightful book, it may be the most helpful step they can take toward losing weight and keeping it off," says bestselling author Kenneth Pelletier, M.D., clinical professor of medicine at University of California School of Medicine, San Francisco.

An excerpt from the Foreword of Whole Person Integrative Eating by New York Times best-selling author Dean Ornish, M.D., Clinical Professor of Medicine, University of California: 

“The takeaway message in this well-researched and illuminating book is this: the antidote to overeating, overweight, and obesity and perhaps other diet-related chronic conditions may be to follow the ancient-food-wisdom-based guidelines that Kesten and Scherwitz describe in this book.”

The authors’ paradigm-shifting message is that food influences not only the physical dimensions of health, but also our emotional, spiritual and social well-being. Their dietary lifestyle can build bridges between the millions who struggle with overeating and weight issues and the medical community. And it can inspire us all to re-envision our relationships with food, eating and weight, so that each time we eat, we are nourished … for life.
