I have the most exciting news
...my first book is published and ready to be released.
Earlier this year I spent most of my time hard at work writing Train Your Brain to Get Thin. Well, hard work does pay off and I am happy to say that I finally have a copy of my book in my hands. Actually, I have more than 1 copy and I am giving one away to a lucky reader.
For those of you that don't know, weight management is one of my speciality practice areas as a dietitian and I worked in weight management before moving overseas. This is definitely an area of interest of mine. I feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to combine two things I love- writing and weight management (helping people lose weight and develop healthy habits).
Here is more about my book, and to keep it simple, here is what it says about Train Your Brain to Get Thin on Amazon:
The latest research in neuroscience shows that the brains of overweight people are different than the brains of lean people--and not in a good way. Yet, you can train your brain to think like those skinnier counterparts--and leverage that brainpower to drop those extra pounds for good.
In Train Your Brain to Get Thin, you'll learn how to:
- Control hunger levels to reach and maintain optimum weight
- Defeat emotional eating at its core
- Feed the brain the nutrients it needs for optimal performance
- Trick the brain into working for, not against, weight loss
- Get "addicted" to exercise, not food
- And much, much more!
You may be thinking that this is not really my first book, and you are correct. However, for The Muffin Tin Cookbook I was a contributing author so I consider this project to really be my first since it is the first full length book I have had published.
I want to thank each and every one of you. I may not have been blogging as much recently, but I do appreciate all the support you have given me over the past few years. I am super excited about this and I am so happy to be able to share this accomplishment with you.
So...it's time for a giveaway. Yes, a giveaway. What book release would be complete without a giveaway, right?!?!
