Come off the dieting hamster wheel and take a psychologically savvy approach to body image, nutrition, weight loss and wellness
* Have you started numerous diet and exercise programs, only to discard them?
(Or perhaps you don't even bother anymore, so disappointing are the results.)
* Do you struggle to lose weight, even when you follow a plan?
* Do you find you have a problematic relationship to food?
You are not alone. Obesity in Australia is at a record high. Could it be that our current approach to body image, diet and health is simply wrong?
