Ask Dr. Denise Lamothe Q&A's
Name: Jimmy

My question is for my wife. She has a history of having a very difficult time losing weight regardless of what she does. She has tried many kinds of diet pills and diets and even going to the gym for 5 or more hours a day to lose weight. Another problem she faces is keeping the weight off. It is so easy for her to regain weight she just lost. If she misses a day at the gym then she will immediatley gain a few pounds. It has her depressed and thinking she can never lose the weight and keep it off. Do you have any suggestions to help her out?

Jimmy, your wife struggles with the same issues that most women strugglke with. I recommend she read my book, The Taming of the Chew: A Holistic Guide to stopping Compulsive Eating. This will help her see the issue of overeating in a different way -- from physical, emotional, social and spiritual perspectives. This will also help her to realize that she is not alone and does not need to diet or to beat herself up. She can lose weight (assuming she actually needs to)and keep pounds off when she begins to make self-loving choices, with her eating behavior as well as in every area of her life. Please wish her luck for me.

Be well,
