I went to a seminar a few weeks ago and heard a talk by a guy called Dr Rick Kausman.
He has a weightloss clinic in Melbourne. The basic theme was about a non dieting approach to weight management.
His thoughts are around trusting yourself and loving yourself the way you are and to trust your intuition combined with nutritional knowledge to get to a healthy weight. He does not believe in any of the BMI numbers and disagrees with eating the same amount of food every day.
He does not talk about overweight but he does talk about the healty weight for each individual.
He basically says that depriving yourself of food is not sustainable and that is why people do not have long term success with extreme programs.
I bought the book and it has given me so much to think about.
