The Psychology of YoYo Dieting: 7 Steps to Breaking Free

158 pages1 hour


Have you been on lots and lots of different “diets” and lost the same half a stone several times over?!!
Does part of you know what you should be doing, and another part seems to sabotage you?
Is your relationship with food a constant battle?
Is there a part of you that just can’t be bothered because it is too hard, and another part that is scared to stop trying?
Do you know there isn’t a magic wand, but you keep looking and hoping for one?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this book is for you.
Developed by Counselling Psychologist Cath Kerr and Dr Liz Royle, the book provides a rich combination of both professional and personal experience. Cath was a yo-yo dieter herself for over 30 years. With her colleague Liz, the authors have over 40 years’ experience of working with people whose lives are disrupted, limited and challenged by deep emotional issues. They wanted to apply what they considered the most effective psychological approach to help people break free from yo-yo dieting and issues with weight and live a richer, happier, more fulfilling life.
Using the psychological concepts in this book, Cath lost over 3 stones (20kg) but most importantly has kept it off for over 3 years. Although losing the weight has been a bonus, the most important aspect for Cath has been that she has totally changed her mindset, stopped yo-yo dieting and stopped looking for the next “quick fix”.
The book offers the seven key steps that will help you to stop feeling frustrated and helpless and will give you the tools to have a focused and empowered mindset. This in turn will enable you to take action towards optimum vitality and having the best body for you.
As Cath herself says “I have maintained this way of thinking by using the strategies we are going to share with you. I am happy in my own skin and with who I am, and I cannot begin to tell you how different my life is in ways I couldn’t have imagined because I have worked from the inside out.”
This book is not a diet or exercise programme. You probably know plenty about nutrition! It’s about the inner psychological battle that prevents you from achieving what you want. It’s about making real, long-term changes. It’s about reclaiming your power and your life by working from the inside out.
