Train Your Brain to Get Thin: Book Giveaway

I have the most exciting news 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:

Conventional wisdom has always been that in order to lose weight, you need to eat less and move more. But skyrocketing obesity rates tell us that it's not that simple. If you really want to get in shape and stay that way, you need to start at the top--with your brain.
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!
Train Your Brain to Get Thin combines the latest research in both neuroscience and human behavior to give you the brain-changing program you need to get fit, look good, and feel great--for life!

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.'s time for a giveaway.  Yes, a giveaway.  What book release would be complete without a giveaway, right?!?!

To enter, please leave a comment here with one healthy change you have made over the past year.  For a second entry, tweet about this giveaway (and include @RDonthemove with the tweet) and then leave a separate comment letting me know. This giveaway will run until Wednesday, November 28 @ noon EST.  Winner will be chosen at random.

Oh, and have a very Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!

Oh, I am so proud of you! I know this was a LOT of work in the making, so you deserve a round of applause!

I know that sometimes health is choosing NOT to do something, and that is one thing I've done this year.

Smiling for you!

Congratulations, Melinda! How exciting! You book sounds amazing and is a HUGE accomplishment :)

A healthy change I made over the past year is eating more in season - fresher and tastier!

Melinda, that is so exciting! I have tried to make a LOT of healthy changes over the last year, but they are difficult to quantify or explain with a lot of specifics. So, I'll say the most big and obvious one, leaving a MISERABLE job and committing to going to school full time on the path to an MPH/RD!

Congrats Melinda! That's such exciting news.

I was really healthy before my wedding, but I've been so busy since August that I feel like I've really let my exercise and mindful eating fall by the wayside. I need to get back on track! After I move on 1/1/2013, I vow to make time to exercise!
