Your Weight is Not the Problem by Lyndi Cohen

Many people are fixated on losing weight and bounce from diet to diet, despite all the evidence that diets don’t work. Your Weight is Not the Problem is a breath of fresh air in the modern world where diets are a multi-billion-dollar industry. Author Lyndi Cohen is a nutritionist and dietitian who came to the conclusion that sacrificing 95 percent of her life to weighing 5 percent less didn’t make any sense, realising it stops people from living full and happy lives.

This book is a no-nonsense guide to breaking free from the dieting trap to creating small, doable habits that will make you healthy and happier. It’s all about liberating yourself from food guilt and self-blame and creating a new approach to health. The book is broken down into three sections:

  • Free yourself from diets: how diets fail people, getting off the diet rollercoaster and what real health looks like.

  • A better way to be healthy: healthy habits, rebuilding energy, eating intuitively, and sticking to habits.

  • Troubleshooting common problems: recognising diet triggers, being in the real world and what to do on days when you feel bad about your body.

Practical and achievable, Your Weight is Not the Problem is a must-read for anybody wanting to ditch dieting for good and live a healthier and happier life.
