The latest health book that I had the pleasure of reading is a new book by Kevin Graham and it is called Weight Loss EMPOWERMENT, “50 Ways to Lose Your Luggage”.I read this book, not because I want to or need to lose weight, but because I know many people who do.
Thus, I wanted to see if this was a good resource amidst the many unhealthy regimes or resources out there to lose weight, to recommend to people.As it turns out, Kevin tackled the aspects of successful and healthy weight loss in a very fresh and different way, that has little to do with counting calories and lots to do with our thinking patterns. If we want the best and most effective results, there is no better place to start, then with our minds.
If we can help people understand why they think the way they think about food or themselves, when, why and how they eat, and transform harmful thought patterns into helpful ones, we gain access to the most powerful control center that governs our actions.
Weight Loss Empowerment was just published in August of 2010 and written by Kevin Graham – founder and managing director of Empower Me Photo.Kevin is an author, speaker and expert on empowerment. Today he helps to empower people to lose weight, by providing them with visual tools to help them stay on their diet or exercise program over the long run.Empower Me Photo began in 2009 with a simple offering of photo revisions to assist with weight loss, showing clients what they look like as a thinner and healthier version of themselves. Today the company is growing rapidly, as more people learn about the power of visualization for attaining one’s goals.
Weight Loss Empowerment is a fast read, separated into many sections and 2-3 page chapters, at just under 250 pages. This format makes it a super easy and fun read, without feeling heavy.
I have to be honest and say, that normally I do not particularly enjoy these types of books, that are short, broken up into so many parts and hit on too many points, leaving the reader at the end with no real substantial or valuable information, but act as a sort of tease to buy into a program or service.
In Weight Loss Empowerment, however Kevin did a wonderful job in my opinion, of putting together a quick and concise enough book to be an easy read for anyone, but at the same time one that offers enough valuable information to be of practical use.
Yes, Kevin fully explains his role in the company Empower Me Photo and what the company is all about, including the products they offer and how they can help in the book. But it is done with tact and style, to make the reader feel like they are truly being helped, and not just lured in as another sale. Besides, I think the products are actually very valuable for someone on a weight loss journey and on average an Empower Me Photo costs $20, which is a fair and very affordable price.
In Weight Loss Empowerment, Kevin does not necessarily prescribe what one should or should not eat, or what fitness program they should participate in, although he adds in some fantastic health tips. He openly explains that he is not a health expert, but an empowerment expert. Thus, he focuses on providing a deeper approach to provide clients with empowerment support for whatever weight loss journey they take, to see, feel and reach their goal.
