"the body listens, remembers and speaks to us. we receive the body's messages all the time, although we seldom recognize them. our body expresses its unmet needs and calls for attention in many ways. and so it is with weight. this is a puzzling matter only because some pieces of the puzzle are not in the box you were handed. your weight is not a body issue. excess weight is really a multi-dimensional problem showing up as an oversized body.
popular media is still full of diet and exercise advice that is based on sacrifice and punishment. too few books use this research to show how weight can be reduced in a happier and healthier way. the body nirvana is about gradually letting go of everything that literally and metaphorically weighs you down. it is time to rejoice in your body's vitality and its capacity to take you towards your life's goals!"
