I write thoughtful self-help.

Weight loss is generally thought of as a personal responsibility. Get moving, make better choices, blah, blah, blah. While it’s true that the work is individual, the root cause is not.
The modern world is constructed to work against our best efforts. Constant suggestions to eat, food that is designed to keep us eating, social occasions revolving around indulgence and the expectation to participate in not only the event, but the consumption, are all major contributors to obesity.
Understanding these things was key in my own story. Instead of looking inward, I looked outward. What was working against my efforts and how do I cope?
This week I take aim at packaged foods. ALL OF THEM. Paleo bars, cauliflower puffs, lentil chips, doesn’t matter. They are obesogenic, my new favorite word.
Check out Principle 6 along with several other great pieces I’ve curated for this week’s newsletter.
Cheers!
