Back Cover: Recongnizing Your Family's Influence on Your Weight Management
Neva Coyle, co-author of Free To Be Thin, has teamed up with David Dixon, Ph.D., who is a Marriage and Family Therapist as well as an eating disorder counselor, to show how a dieter's family and close friends influence weight-management's successes and failures. Recent expanding research is showing the direct relationship between the interdependency of families and compulsive behavior behavior at all levels, particularly in the area of weight management. Many dieters find their best efforts being sabotaged from several directions within their own families.
Beyond helping dieters recognize the influence of those close to them, the authors believe that families and friends can be trained to be the dieter's first support group through honest communication, forgiveness and re-education. Practical principles and creative ways to enlist a family's consistent help are presented with the truth of Scripture.
