Over the past twenty years, there has been a proliferation of books on health and fitness, health columns in daily newspapers, and television shows devoted to these issues, yet many people with good intentions still struggle to adopt healthier lifestyles. This issue is not, How are you improving your health? but, Why aren't you? Author Haven Logan, drawing on her work as a psychotherapist in private practice and as founding director of a major eating disorder program, has identified common psychological blocks and negative patterns that prevent many of us from leading healthier, happier lives. Her four-step program delves into our personal health histories and frees us to develop a more cooperative relationship with our bodies and to make choices based on self-knowledge. The goal is to support our natural inclinations instead of someone else's model of a "perfectly fit person." This is an original approach to the root causes of poor health.
