In spite of the increasing number of "quick-fix" diet programs, low-fat foods and pharmaceutical drugs for rapid weight-loss, the percentage of overweight Americans is climbing. In fact, over 61% of the population are overweight in this country, of which 34% are considered obese. With this national health concern reaching epidemic proportions, its time to change our perspective on how we can effectively lose weight without losing ourselves in the process. According to Low, step one in this process is refuting the belief that our weight correlates to our self-worth. "Through greater self-awareness, all of our desires can be realized, including weight loss." Deborah further states: "When the focus is expanded to see the whole picture, the emotional battle with food ends." Deborah empowers individuals to shift the way they think about weight loss and learn to see themselves in a whole new light.
