Dr. Cohen says:
"Are you one of the many millions out there continuing to ride the "roller coaster" of losing weight but inevitable regaining it? Have you tried program after program of diet and exercise with inconsistent results at best, and discouraging results at worst? Then I say: it's time to go within yourself, and address what I call your inner psychological "blocks" preventing you from losing weight and keeping it off-on any program you try. As you will see, these so-called blocks can include: self-rebellion, anxieties, loyalty issues, excessive use of weight-loss "curse words," emotional eating, and spite. Let me emphasize though that the "inner block" program presented in this book is not intended to replace existing weight-loss programs. The priority instead is to use my program to help you successfully lose weight with any structured weight-loss program you prefer to follow. Last but not least, you will learn about your self-sabotaging "inner bully," and how it "works overtime" in you to undermine your efforts to lose weight. Strategies for tackling your inner bully and breaking down the inner blocks that apply to you are addressed at length."
