Whole Person Integrative Eating



In this breakthrough book, lifestyle and nutrition researchers Deborah Kesten and Larry Scherwitz offer documented proof that it is possible to overcome overeating, overweight, and obesity by nourishing yourself multidimensionally each time you eat. They reveal how overeating may be halted, even reversed, by replacing their newly identified overeating styles with the antidotes: the ancient/new elements of their Whole Person Integrative Eating dietary lifestyle described in this book.

The authors' paradigm-shifting, well-researched message in Whole Person Integrative Eating is that food influences not only the physical dimensions of health, but also our emotional, spiritual, and social well-being. Their scientifically sound dietary lifestyle can build bridges between the millions who struggle with overeating and weight issues and the medical community. And it can inspire you to re-envision your relationship to food, eating, and weight, so that each time you eat, you are nourished...for life.
