Last week, Duke University Medical Center found that weight loss plays a major role in improving diabetes after patients have stomach-reduction, or gastric bypass, surgery. WebMD¹s researchers found that weight loss surgery can dramatically reduce an overweight person¹s risk of getting cancer. Fox News reported that a big breakfast, heavy in carbohydrates, is key to losing weight. Is it any wonder Americans are getting fatter and fatter, with all this confusing and half-reported information? Though millions of people all over the world struggle with weight issues, fewer than 20% will be successful this year. Which begs the question ­ why? Most of us strive to maintain our mind-body connection, but quickly ditch it as soon as the newest diet comes along. This sells lots of books, but doesn¹t help solve the problem that many of your listeners are currently facing. Bestselling author Alyson Mead has taken a close look at this issue, and found that working with the mind as well as the body is the only way that results in successful long-term weight loss. Her book WAKE UP TO YOUR WEIGHT LOSS shows that before weight is a food issue, it's an emotional issue.
