Thin from Within: The Powerful Self-Coaching Program for Permanent Weight Loss

Joseph J. Luciani. Amacom, $16.95 (256p) ISBN 978-0-8144-3678-3
From clinical psychologist Luciani (The Power of Self-Coaching) comes a valuable self-help guide aimed at those who are struggling to lose weight. Luciani shares what he has learned from his own eating battles and discusses the information and skills necessary to free oneself from unhealthy habits in general. The book is carefully divided into four parts, tackling both the essentials of weight loss and how to sustain successful results. Part one covers psychological resilience, the key to a self-disciplined mindset that can break poor habits. Luciani explains, in easily comprehended terms, the biology of the brain and the science behind hunger, sprinkling helpful tips throughout, such as having a glass of wine as dessert instead of with a meal. Part two describes how to attack cravings through food journaling and cultivation of a resilient attitude, and part three details Luciani’s honed “self-talk” technique. Finally, part four will help readers maintain psychological and physical gains by making them more cognizant of entrenched patterns of thinking and of emotional issues such as anxiety and depression. This book is a crucial primer for anyone who hopes to eat well and enjoy a healthier lifestyle. Agent: Linda Konner, Linda Konner Literary Agency. (Jan.)
