Author Charlotte Denny Henley in her book: "Whole Weight - How to Quit Dieting and Start Living a Healthy & Whole Life" writes very convincingly about how to change the way one views themselves and how they can become a healthier person. There is so much focus on dieting that most people give up quickly and many times put on more pounds than they lost while on the diet. There must not only be a change of how one eats but also their entire being, if they are to become a truly healthier individual.
Author Henley deals with the purpose of balance and how important that is within the life of every person. When one's life is out of balance there will never be a true change within. Many of the weight issues that people are dealing with are on the exterior while true issues are found deep within the individual. The way one thinks certainly makes a huge impact on how one lives. We should realize that as our mind takes us we seem to follow.
There is a wonderful checklist included within the book that deals with things the person must do on a daily basis if they are to change their lives into the productive individual they desire to become. There are included within the book sections dealing with: Things a person does right as well as what a person can be grateful for on a daily basis. There are also self-affirmations and a great list of resources available to help the reader go even deeper within their research of how to become a healthier individual. If you are looking for a quick weight loss program this may not be the book for you, however if you are looking for a book that deals with the true issues of how to become healthy and enjoy life, then I would certainly consider reading this book.
