The Healthiest You (with embedded videos)

Take Charge of Your Brain to Take Charge of Your Life

The Healthiest You (with embedded videos)

A twelve-week program that teaches you to retrain your brain to embrace a healthy lifestyle, now with embedded videos.

Why is The Healthiest You different from every other health, diet, and fitness plan? Because it works. 

Dr. Kelly Traver understands that the human brain resists change. Only when we learn the secrets of how to get our brain to work for us, not against us, can we make healthy, permanent lifestyle changes. By combining the most cutting-edge discoveries in neuroscience with the latest information in medicine, nutrition, and fitness, Dr. Traver developed the The Healthiest You program and initially tested it on her patients, ranging in age from twenty to eighty-one. Her results were astounding:
·      Among those who were overweight, the average weight loss was nineteen pounds
·      Among those who were diabetic, 80 percent achieved a reduction in their blood sugars
·      Among those with high blood pressure, 87 percent returned their blood pressure to normal
·      Some 80 percent of the smokers successfully kicked the habit.     
                
In the course of twelve short weeks readers can achieve similar success by following Dr. Traver’s simple, straightforward instructions to work with this stubbornly change-resistant organ so that it not only accepts new, healthy lifestyle habits, it actually embraces them. This updated edition also includes the top ten motivators that have been proven to drive peoples’ behavior when it comes to working on their health. You can use this powerful information to re-motivate yourself whenever your enthusiasm starts to wane. With the powerful tools provided by The Healthiest You you can learn to change your body and your life, simply by understanding and working with your brain.
