Think Thin, Be Thin

101 Psychological Ways to Lose Weight

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


If you’ve been struggling with your weight, you know how hard it can be to lose those extra pounds and keep them off. In the groundbreaking Think Thin, Be Thin, nationally prominent psychotherapist Doris Wild Helmering and award-winning health writer Dianne Hales assert that the true key to a healthy body weight is a healthy attitude toward food and exercise. Their logic is simple: Your brain ultimately controls what you eat and whether you work out. If you change the way you think, you can change the way you behave. And you can lose weight.

Using proven psychological strategies and scientifically based exercises, you will learn how to harness your thoughts to transform your behavior, body, and life. With practical advice on such troublesome issues as curbing emotional eating, motivating yourself to exercise, and overcoming diet plateaus, this book is the ideal complement to any diet and weight-loss program.

From Publishers Weekly

Jan 01, 2005 – Clinical social worker Helmering and health writer Hales (An Invitation to Health) present 101 tips for dieters who need to change not only their exercise and eating habits, but also their way of thinking in this slim but to-the-point volume. The idea behind the book, write the authors, "is that the more you see, hear, or read a message, the more positively you view it." In this case, the message is to drop weight and get moving, so the book is packed full of briskly worded, often original ways for dieters to motivate themselves. The authors make use of psychological theories (including a semantics-based exercise to encourage language awareness), meditation and chanting exercises, and calculations such as the YLL (years of life lost to obesity) to help readers refrain from overeating. Not every entry is original; readers will find familiar suggestions such as to exercise in a group and keep a food diary. Others seem excessive, especially when done in combination with different practices. How many readers could repeat an affirmation for an hour each day while keeping a food diary, exercising and literally grading their own performance? On the positive side, the book's emphasis is always on health and fitness, and binge and fad diets are actively discouraged. Overall, this book is an excellent tool for diet-minded readers who occasionally require a mental kick in the pants.
