About the Author
Robert Polsky grew up in Saint Louis, Missiouri. He obtained a bachelor’s degree in finance from Southwest Missouri State University. However, shortly after launching what had started out to be a successful career, Robert was stricken with a mysterious and debilitating health challenge. The condition impacted the nervous system and was quite debilitating. Though doctor shopping and experimenting with medicines and therapies became a full time endeavor, none of them resulted in lasting or significant improvement. Over several years, Robert became a researcher in his own right. Since medicines were obviously not the answer, he focused on natural therapies and practices, such as acupuncture, herbology, yoga, meditation, breath work, chi kung, and other Taoist practices. The journey, eventually lead to living in India on two occasions for a total of about three years. There, Robert continued his studies and practice of Eastern philosophies, practice and medical therapies, including ayurvedic and Tibetan medicine, acupuncture and body work. The journey continued and resulted in living in SE Asia, where Robert regularly spent lengthy stays at Buddhist temples, where he practiced vipassana or insight meditation. Along this journey, Robert had the opportunity to study or spend time in the presence of some extraordinary Healers and Teachers. Some of whom are revered in their respective country. One such person was an 86-year-old Tibetan monk, whom had been the personal physician of The Dalai Lama. The list goes on…... It was this eclectic background of research and experience that eventually lead to the book Why You Suck at Weight Loss.

As we all know that the main things for any of our behaviors depend on our mind or our thoughts. Like that over eating and any kind of other terrible activities can be handled through controlling our mind. Those methods are very well trained in this book by using breathing techniques that Buddha’s taught.
By following those methods we can eliminate our uncontrollable behaviors as a result we can control over eating too and can gain weight loss. I highly recommend the concept in this book and I’m pretty sure this will work for any of us.
The concept is pretty simple but I really have never heard it talked about in the weight loss realm before. This book is definitely food for thought for anyone who has struggled with weight loss.
