Why Can't I Lose Weight

"Why Can't I Lose Weight - The Real Reasons Diets Fail And What to Do About It"

A comprehensive book which explains weight loss problems such as diet plateaus and depressed metabolism, and how to overcome them. Contains the top 15 reasons why people may not be able to lose weight, even when dieting and/or exercising.

"I found this book to be filled with practical medically-based answers to many of the questions about weight loss, plateaus, healthy fat loss, metabolism and why the weight so often comes back no matter how 'good' I am on my diet. Jackie Bushell introduces her readers to current, relevant and proven facts about low calorie, low fat, low carb, and low glycemic diets. This book helps clear the fog of myths and unsupported claims and shine a logical, detailed light on diet and healthy weight loss facts. 'Why Can't I Lose Weight' contains a lot of common sense and medically supported nutritional information that is applicable to a great many frustrated dieters, just like myself. I experienced many "ah-ha!" moments while reading through the pages. I especially recommend this book to anyone who suspects there could be an underlying health issue causing them to be resistant to weight loss."
