Talking about nutrition is a lot like talking about religion or politics—just ask the 45 million Americans who diet each year about their feelings surrounding food and diets. The spectrum of scientific studies, anecdotal evidence and old wives’ tales about weight-loss “solutions” can confuse and frustrate anyone trying to lose weight and keep it off. In a new book, health and wellness coach Kathryn Scoblick reveals the indisputable key to achieving long-term weight loss: what you feed your mind is just as important as what you feed your stomach.

In Ditch the Diets: It’s Not ALL About the Food, Scoblick, the owner of Health Inspires in Austin, Texas, debunks dieting myths and the marketing gimmicks of the food industry, while offering scientifically backed nutrition advice. She draws lessons from positive psychology, clinical researchers and spiritual leaders to show how practices of mindfulness and gratitude are just as important to your wellbeing as diet, exercise and sleep.
