Q -What advice can you give families who are trying to help family members lose weight?
Teach your children how to listen to their bodies and know when they are satisfied. I teach my own daughter that if you have eaten until your stomach feel uncomfortable against your ribs than you ate too much. So now she is learning how to listen to her body.
Eat what is closest to God. What I mean is eat what is whole instead of highly processed. Get back in the kitchen and cook as a family.
Q –How does this book benefit individuals struggling with weight loss?
This is not your typical diet book. I don’t tell you how many calories to eat. The reason that individuals gain weight is because after a diet or weight loss program they go back to their old habits and behaviours instead of breaking those patterns. They go back to their old triggers that cause emotional eating. They have not learned how to listen to their body. They have not learned how to build resilience in this area. In fact, my book is like a pre-requisite course for individuals to read before going on a diet. My book has also been labeled as “ The Psychology Handbook for Weight Loss”.
Q -The title of your book what does it mean?
I like the word attract because it puts you in control. Once you start changing your behavours and mind set, you automatically become a magnet that will attract your ideal weight.
How long did it take to do the research, write the book, and have it published? It took me about a year to do the research and four months to write the book.
Q -Describe your book in 3 words.
Behavior weight loss
Q -Who is your intended audience?
People who have struggled with their weight for a long time.
Q -Are there recipes in your book? Where do they come from?
I do not have recipes in my book, but I do have them on my blog. My food ideas come from my heritage which is East Indian and Kenyan. These recipes are healthy and are based on the paleo lifestyle approach because I find that approach flexible and easy to incorporate with my culture.
