Losing weight and successfully maintaining it over the long term less about what you put in your stomach; it’s more about what’s happening in the brain. In Brain-Powered Weight Loss, psychotherapist and weight management expert Eliza Kingsford shows that more than 90 percent of people who go on diet programs (even healthy ones) fail or eventually regain because they have a dysfunctional relationship with food. Changing this relationship by changing the way you think about and behave around food is what it takes to permanently achieve weight-loss success. Kingsford’s 11-step program enlists dozens of mind-altering and behavior-changing exercises and techniques that shows you how to.
Eliza Kingsford, LPC – I’m a licensed psychotherapist with an intense passion for helping people heal their relationship to food. I specialize in body image, weight management, eating disorders and food addiction. I am CEO and co-founder of Empowered Wellness, a revolutionary wellness immersion experience in Santa Barbara, California. Prior to this, I was Executive Director of Wellspring, the nation’s leading health and wellness camp for children, teens and young adults and a member of the RiverMend Health scientific advisory board. I am also a certified personal trainer, fitness instructor and longtime athlete. But those are all just details. My life’s work has been, and will continue to be, changing the conversation around food and body. In my work, I’ve seen thousands of people struggling to find peace with their bodies. I’ve heard countless stories about shame, dissatisfaction, fear, loss of control and the list goes on. My work is about helping people heal.
