Obesity (from the Latin obesus, one who has become plump from eating ) first appears in Western medical literature in Thomas Venner s Via Recta in 1620. However, many centuries before, the ancient physicians had already addressed this subject a disease that was first reported almost 400 years ago in Western medical literature but whose incidence continues to rise in epidemic proportions. Obesity is a chronic, multifaceted disease that requires multimodal management. To achieve success, significant life changes need to be made. Dietary manipulation, an increase in physical activity, and behavior modification need to be introduced. The shortcoming of many diet programs is that they focus on only one aspect of the problem without acknowledging that obesity has multiple causes. A holistic, balanced approach is required if one hopes to achieve and maintain success in weight management. This program puts forward a weight-loss program that addresses dietary, exercise, and behavioral aspects of eating. I like the idea of combining ancient sources with current opinion. The current medical literature and advice is all sound and well researched. The eating plan itself certainly fits all the current recommended guidelines. One of the misconceptions people have about weight loss is that rapid and large changes are desirable or even possible. The importance of gradual and sustained changes is emphasized in this book. Our medical teachers often remind us that teachings that were once regarded as outdated and obsolete regularly come back into practice when new facts about them are discovered. The understanding of proper nutrition is returning to the principles espoused by Maimonides. It is my belief that this book will be of great benefit to those who read it and apply its principles appropriately. --Dr. Charlene Wolberg, M.D.,Medical Director Linkfield Obesity Clinic, Johannesburg, RSA
The research in this book is exemplary. The sources used for the exercise guidelines the American College of Sports Medicine and the Journal of the American Medical Association are the most accurate and well recognized as leaders in the sports medicine and wellness industry. At FIFA Medical Conference, Professor Karim Kahn spoke about how inactivity is killing the American population, as it leads to chronic diseases and obesity. The Mind Body Synergy diets' cardio advice and eight-strengthening-exercises routine is a total-body workout, which can be mastered in the comfort of your own home. Most diets are expensive and still lead back to old bad habits. This program teaches how to implement small and practical steps. My patients love the program, as they experience results in a defined time frame. I recommend this book not only to people who want a permanent solution but also to professionals in the field. --Natascha Louw , MA, Biokineticist and Fitness Specialist
I wanted to thank you wholeheartedly for a weight-loss system that has helped me to create a healthier self. To date, I have lost 95 pounds, and I hope to continue applying these positive habits to my daily life. I still follow your program and exercise regularly. May God reward your efforts and may we merit living a healthy life that enhances our purpose in every area of life. --Esther, Oak Park, Michigan, USA

The chapter about perception really spoke to me, and reminded me of a neat experience. When I worked as an analyst for a retailer, they made us go through training in 'seeing innocence'. The idea is that you could think up an innocent explanation for something annoying you witness. So when a car passes you on the shoulder, you would train yourself to assume they're en route to the hospital to deliver a baby. After spending 2 hours in rush hour traffic, I was deeply concerned that the maternity wards wouldn't be able to handle the overwhelming influx. ;) Not really, but I felt peaceful about it. I viewed the training as an interruption in my work at the time, but have found it to be a really useful, ongoing gift in life over time. This felt of similar nature.
The recipes I’ve tried have been really yummy, easy to put together, and colorful. Recommend! I wish the ingredients were listed in the order that they appear in the directions. They are for some contributors, but not others, so I’ll grab colored highlighters to group ingredients by step as I go along.
1-2) Antioxidant Rich Fruit Salad – p90. This was a really yummy fruit salad and a kid pleaser.
3) Spicy Coconut Carrot Soup with Chickpea Croutons – p100. My kid always picks those flavored roasted bags of chickpeas as a snack when she goes to the store with me, so I had to give this one a try. It’s so flavorful and the added texture is really nice.
4) Roasted Radish, Spinach, and Almond Salad with Balsamic Coconut Vinaigrette – p97. Yum! The radishes are transformed by roasting! –Just an FYI in case you didn’t know, and hate waste – Radish greens and carrot tops make a cool pesto, so google it if you want to use that whole plant you paid for. ;)
5) Confetti Chopped Kale, Walnut, and Beet Salad – p99. This one’s really pretty. It tastes like fall. –I keep surgical gloves in the kitchen for canning, but am especially appreciative having them around when I’m working with beets or pomegranates.
The book provides easy to follow tips to deal with different life situations, and also has many healthful recipes!
I can already feel stress -and pounds!- melting away.
The author, David Zulberg, teaches you how to break the cycle of addiction., break bad eating habits & swap them for the right habits, train your body to react naturally and make your new healthy habits stick. He teaches you six healthy habits and how to make them stick:
Habit 1-Enjoy your Main Meal of the Day, without Overeating
Habit 2-How to add Healthy Carbs to your Meals and still Lose Weight (Not all Carbs are Bad)
Habit 3-Have Two Main Meals a Day
Habit 4-Exercise Motivation and Routine
Habit 5-How to Snack Smart Between Meals (My Favorite Habit)
Habit 6-Mindfulness and Emotional Wellness (Eating for the Right Reasons)
He teaches you to Alter your Perception and Act Happy. You’ll learn about Mindful Eating. The book contains Mind/body Synergy Recipes, Fruit Vegetable Meal Recipes and 120 Calorie Recipes. This is an insightful book, that’s much more than a recipe book, diet book or self help book. It’s an insightful look into what actually makes us gain weight and prevents us from losing weight as well as keeping the weight off. Someone reminded me the other day, that if you take in just 100 extra calories a day, say with a drink or something, it adds up to over 10 pounds in a year. In 5 years, you’ve put on 50 extra pounds and you don’t know how, because you don’t know where that 100 extra calories a day came from. A candy bar has 240 calories. If you ate a candy bar a day (yes, we know better than that, but it's an example), you’ll put on an extra 24.1 pounds in a year. What, from one candy bar? That’s mindful eating. I highly recommend this book. You’ll take away a lot from it. Thank you for reading.
