Chewing The Fat, Shedding Pounds, and Saying Goodbye to Diets

Well, here we are in the last week of January winging our way through 2015. I don’t know if you made any resolutions for the year, but if you did you may have the “lose some weight” resolution on your list. It’s one of the more popular promises we make each year. On the next CHI FOR YOURSELF we’re going to look at weight gain and weight loss from a perspective you may not have considered.

Our guest will be Karen Koenig,  author of Outsmarting Overeating: Boost Your Life Skills, End Your Food Problems  as well as five other books about eating and weight. Karen’s a psychotherapist, eating coach, and speaker who’s been working with troubled eaters for more than 30 years. Karen says “You may think food is your main problem, but it isn’t.” Rather, she says your problem is that “you never learned the skills and strategies everyone needs in order to live effectively and successfully.”
