Coach Yourself Thin is an effective guide for understanding the weight loss journey, including the barriers and the tools for making the necessary “thinking shifts” for lasting change, and was written with both the health professional and the client in mind. Many overweight clients believe that they alone must take responsibility for their weight loss and yet don’t believe they can make the necessary changes. They are likely to try fad diets and then make excuses when they falter, or blame themselves and focus on personal short-comings. Coach Yourself Thin outlines the major obstacles to weight loss and how to move past them through tools and exercises designed to help clients create an expansive vision, set effective goals, restore balance in their lives, focus on the positive, raise awareness through mindfulness exercises, and build self-efficacy. Nutritionist Greg Hottinger, MPH, RD, worked at the Duke Diet & Fitness Center and currently is the lead nutritionist for the Biggest Loser Club.
