Unlock the Secrets to Creating Your Ideal Weight & Shape
Book Review by Dr. Richard Powers
Have you solved the mystery of your weight and shape? Many haven’t. Your weight and shape change… sometimes for the better, oftentimes for the worse, and it is often worse than it was before you went on a “diet.” Why?
And, more importantly, how can you do things differently so that you make improvements and get to keep them?
Shape Shift: The Shape Shift Intelligence Solution, by Dr. Kelly and Dr. Percival, is a landmark publication and revolutionary book that helps you answer these tough questions and solve this seemingly unsolvable mystery.
Combine over eighty years of obesity research with a thorough knowledge of complexity science and human physiology, and the bottom line becomes crystal clear … Get your life in shape and your body will follow.
You see, you are not in control of your weight and shape. Never were, and never will be. That job is for your “Shape Intelligence”. It’s like you have this shape “judge” inside your body that determines how much fat your body needs and where it should be located. It then goes about altering your metabolism, appetite, and energy levels to achieve this particular goal. Like it or not, you don’t have any say in this decision process.
Thus, it is futile to try and “overrule” your shape judge’s decisions by:
- Counting calories
- Restraining your appetite
- Forced exercising
- Restricting fats and/or carbohydrates
These strategies only result in frustration, confusion, weight cycling (repeated cycles of losing and gaining weight), and poor health. Sound familiar?
The good news is that you do have control over specific choices and actions that directly impact your shape judge’s fat-regulating decision-making process. So, improving your weight and shape then becomes a process of learning and implementing those particular actions that convince your shape judge to get rid of fat, instead of storing it (especially belly fat).
Accomplishing this amounts to learning the many subtle, yet powerful, and largely unknown, factors that affect your weight and shape. As you then apply these principles in your daily life in a consistent and joyful manner, your feeling, looking, and functioning better become inevitable!
The key to improving your weight, shape, and health in a wholesome and sustainable way boils down to uncovering the multiple underlying causes of weight gain, like:
- Why seemingly little things like light exposure, when you eat, shift work, and jet lag can have big effects on your shape
- The link between stress and belly fat, and what you can do to de-stress your life
- Which man-made chemicals (and medications) can impact your shape and how to minimize their use
- How sleeping less can worsen your shape, and how sleeping more can improve it
- Why frequency of movement is more important than calories burned while exercising
- How you can get the most shape benefits from exercise in the least amount of time
- The real story on food choices, body fatness, and food guidelines for getting your diet in shape; and so much more.
Understanding and working with, as opposed to against, your Shape Intelligence helps you achieve your weight and Why? And, more importantly, what can you do to ensure your own personal shift for the better?
You may have discovered that diets work … until they don’t. Any weight you lose often eventually returns. The good news is that it is possible to improve your weight and shape … and without all the struggle, frustration, guilt, and shame commonly associated with weight loss attempts.
