Blog Tour Review-Why I Don't Lose Weight by Dr. Wilfred Aguila

Book Description


A unique perspective to the battle of the bulge. Dr. Aguila gets to the heart of the struggle with weight loss, then gives practical solutions for overcoming that struggle and losing weight for good. Wonderfully clear and simple steps to permanent better health from a physician who has lived it.

My Review:
 I have struggled with my weight all of my life. I have read countless book on losing weight. This is the first book that has truly touched something in me. It didn't focus on the "hows" to lose weight, but on understanding obesity and discovering the reasons we fail. 

I also really liked how this book focused on making a lifestyle change. Dr. Aguila says right at the beginning, "Weight loss must coincide with a firm commitment to a healthier lifestyle for you and your family." 

Another fabulous reminder for me that Dr. Aguila teaches in his book is this, "You can't be all things to all people.You have to take care of yourself first in order to be there for others. 'Sacrificing" yourself for your family is admirable, but what is going to happen to them when they don't have you?" I wrote down..."WOW! Great Reminder!!" on the side of the page when I read this. 

Here are the chapter titles of the book. I wanted to include this in my review so you could truly see how different and wonderful this book is!
  1. Knowing Why You Fail
  2. The Cycle of Obesity
  3. Rotations of the Cycle
  4. Controlling Anxiety
  5. Understanding Guilt
  6. Failing to Break the Cycle
  7. The Perfectionist Pattern
  8. Psychological Phases of Obesity
  9. Don't Choose a Diet, Choose a Transition
  10. Here's To Your Health
  11. Your Goal Is The Secret to Success
  12. Unhealthy Habits and Vices
  13. The Real You
  14. Conquer the Cycle
  15. Pulling Out The Root Cause
I'm so excited to use this book in helping me get and stay healthy, physically and mentally. Thank you so much Dr. Aguila!! I highly endorse this book for those wanting to get to the "real" reason why being healthy and conquering the obesity cycle has been evading them.
