A unique and proven four-way system to lose weight. This fascinating book outlines strategies of losing weight from a scientific, psychological, spiritual and practical daily basis. This book goes way beyond the 'one diet fits all' message. It utilises a system of four endocrine-based body types: Enthusiast, Sensualist, Driver and Analyser. Discovering which of the four metabolic types you are will reveal your easiest path to maximum health, pleasure and potential. Each body type needs different foods and practices to maximise weight management. The plan has two contrasting phases, each with its own demands and rewards. Different gender, body and personality types tend to overfocus on one phase of dieting and neglect the other - with resulting failure. Written by a nutritionist with over 25 years experience, this book incorporates the latest research. Understand and access your governing brain and body linkages. How to identify and manage food sensitivities. Delicious recipes for protein options, dairy and gluten-free, plus international favourites.
