Professor Trim's Becoming Slimmer

A revolution in dietary management, this unique new medically-based weight control program for women is being endorsed by doctors throughout Australia. The Professor Trim Medically Supervised Weight Loss Program on which it is based has been developed by obesity and lifestyle expert Dr Garry Egger, originator of the GutBuster program for men and author of Trim for Life. Becoming Slim provides over 200 easy-to-follow recommendations and tips to assist women with weight loss, covering subjects that are very specific to women's health and wellbeing: body image (the hype versus the reality), emotional issues of anxiety, depression and low self-esteem, hormones and basic biology and the latest news on nutrition and keeping the weight off.With advice on monitoring exercise performance, reducing energy density in food (rather than fat or carbohydrate content), and learning how to manage stress-related 'binge eating', this very practical book provides women with the tools and support to create an effective lifestyle plan and enable them to successfully manage their weight.Garry Egger is a Government advisor and a consultant for the World Health Organisation on weight control, and an Adjunct Professor of Health Sciences at Deakin University who publishes widely in the medical literature. Much of his time is spent educating medical practitioners throughout Australia, Asia and the Pacific on weight control and obesity management.
