When weight loss 'solutions' are really part of the problem, it's time for a radical solution - let go of 'thinsanity' and get ready to say goodbye to dieting forever!
This item is Non-Returnable.
We are becoming more and more obsessed with being thin ... as we get fatter and fatter! The craziest part is that most weight loss 'solutions' are actually part of the problem. Diet and exercise programs fail 97% of people in the long-term, resulting in short term weight loss, medium term regain, and long-term gain approximately 10 to 15% above starting weight.
Scientists have known this reality for decades - the entire diet industry is based on it - yet we keep on falling for promises of fast, easy, permanent weight loss (and other fictional tales), putting ourselves through rebranded versions of the exact same thing ... and expecting different results. Some might call this insanity - weight management psychologist Glenn Mackintosh calls it Thinsanity.
Glenn's book, Thinsanity, aims to transform the way we approach weight management of the body, by starting with the mind. New scientific developments are offering insights into a compassionate way to make peace with food, fall in love with physical movement, and learn to LOVE your body healthy. Glenn takes all those new scientific developments and expresses them the way he does with his clients: clearly and with lots of understanding. This book is right for anyone who wants to learn to love their body and be healthy in it.

Reviews & Q&A
Great read, great info - there’s a podcast too !
Easy to read, with short chapters, each on a different topic. Funny as well. But also really interesting. Kirstie is just a little older than me and her opinions really resonated.
Loved this book. Laugh out loud funny. Kirstie's observations are spot on and so relatable. So good, was sad when I got to the end.
