What is insanity?
·A multimillion-dollar diet industry that fails to help women lose weight permanently ·A fitness industry that excludes the unfit ·Women hating the way they look and feel
After her divorce, Susan Poweter fell into a “fat come” that left her fat, unfit, and depressed. At more than 240 pounds, she courageously turned to the “experts”—the diet and fitness industries—for help. But she found, as millions of other have, that starvation and deprivation don’t work, and that the diet and fitness industries work against women, setting them up for failure, ruining their health, taking their money, and giving them temporary, short-term answers. Then on her own Susan Powter discovered how to eat, breath, and move, to lose weight permanently and regain her health, strength, and sanity.
