This book covers my unique view on weight loss and vitality which I would call the esthetic-spiritual flow of life theory. You can’t buy your way to weight-loss. It comes down to the strength in your spirit. All the diet books, exercise equipment, weight-loss programs and diet food in the world is bull next to this one thing. You have to respect yourself highly if you want to lose weight. This is not a technical, physiological book about losing weight or a book about health. There are thousands of those around. If you want some of that basic nutritional information, go to #611-#613 at the library, read some of my other books. Find health cookbooks at #641. This book is about how I stay at a moderate weight regardless of what eat.
