Let your brain change your body

It's not what you eat, it's why and how you eat.

The world is drowning in information on health, nutrition and exercise yet 95 percent of people who try to lose weight put it all back on, plus more, within 12 months of starting any sort of weight loss regime.

Why?

Because the key factor in successful weight management has been ignored: the brain.

The brain is our control centre.

Every part of the body follows the signals and instructions sent out by the brain. It doesn't matter if you have a slow metabolism, a frenetic lifestyle or a genetic predisposition to fat gain, because NeuroSlimming addresses the underlying source of the issue and gives you a Mind Plan, not a meal plan.

NeuroSlimming brings the latest discoveries in brain science to the field of weight management.

NeuroSlimming provides the missing piece in the weight loss puzzle.

NeuroSlimming sets you free of dieting, struggling, worrying, wishing, craving and emotional eating. Free of guilt and anguish about what, when and how much to eat. Free to make peace with your body and live life to the full. Free to enjoy food because you'll learn how to feed your spirit, not starve your body.

Dr Helena Popovic's deep understanding of what drives self-sabotaging behaviours will show you how to overcome them. She also explains why you could be doing 'everything right' yet still not achieving the results you want.

NeuroSlimming opens avenues for change that were not previously known to exist.

NeuroSlimming is revolutionary. It will take you beyond information to lifelong transformation.

In 2016 NeuroSlimming won the Bronze Medal in the international Living Now awards. These awards celebrate the innovation and creativity of books that enhance the quality of our lives. The 2016 winners are recognised as the year's best books for better living. NeuroSlimming is honoured for its contribution to positive global change in the health and wellness category.

Not all kilograms are equal. What takes up more space inside your body: one kilogram (2.2 pounds) of muscle or one kilogram of fat?

The fat takes up more room. Muscle is much denser and more compact than fat so you can pack more of it into the same space. What this means is that if you were carrying more fat than your body needed, and you substituted the excess fat for muscle, you would look slimmer and drop several sizes in clothes but you’d weigh more! And you’d be fitter and healthier. This is what strength training can achieve. Have you ever heard someone say the following?

‘I started going to the gym and I could see I was getting stronger. I also noticed I had more energy and stamina throughout the day. But when I stepped on the scales I hadn’t lost any weight. I was so disappointed.’

How can someone be disappointed about feeling better and improving their health? Oh that’s right — the number on the bathroom scales hasn’t moved.

Numbers on scales can be very misleading. Bathroom scales that merely tell you how much you weigh do not tell you what you need to know. They don’t tell you anything about your health or the direction in which your health is going. They don’t tell you about your shape or your clothing size. They certainly don’t tell you anything about your value as a human being.
