A belated but very happy new year to all our readers!
As all of my various newsfeeds have been filled with resolutions for the past 10 days (people obviously start with their new years resolution planning on new years eve it would seem), which results in a lot of eye rolling from not only me but everyone who is reading their resolutions, the top resolution I continually see, year in and year out would undoubtedly be to lose weight. It’s everywhere. Everyone feels somewhat food-hungover from indulging over the festive season and wants to lose it. New year, new me. Who is sick of hearing it? Well, if you aren’t and are looking at losing weight I might have a solution for you.
Now, I never thought I’d be able to give any advice on losing weight but the answer is simple, pick up a book – not any book though, be sure to pick up the book entitled “The Brain Surgeon’s Diet“, written by a local South African neurologist and loser of 70 kilograms, Dr. W. A. Liebenberg. As the name of the book suggests, the book contains helpful tips and tricks into training your brain to manage weight and weight loss while taking your life into your own hands to control your own body, appetite and emotions surrounding health and food and the direct link between the two.
You already have the tools you require to lose the weight, your brain – and your brain is not hard to train especially with crib notes in Dr. Liebenberg’s newly launched book. It is not a boring diet book, it has quite a unique look and has a poke at all the habits that fat people have, what they think and hide behind…. It’s real. It’s honest. It’s simple.
I believe this book and the hidden secrets it contains will be the answer for a lot of people who have suffered over the years in trying to lose weight with little to no success or to those who have lost the weight but struggle to keep it off. It is not a diet plan to follow but rather a new way of thinking, a new way of approaching food, planning meals and make weight loss uncomplicated. In a way it is teaching you to eat with your brain, not your body.
Unlocking the science that fad diets hide, the book easily elaborates in an easy to read and understand manner you learn about the energy values of food and meal planning that makes losing weight enjoyable and easy to incorporate into your life. I think it should rather be called The Brain Surgeon’s Lifestyle, not diet as if you incorporate this method of thinking – you will never have to diet again.
The Brain Surgeon’s Diet is published by Penguin and retails for R140.00 from selected bookstores.
