Written by a board certified physician who specializes in weight loss, the book offers the "Power Principle" as a tool that goes beyond just the physical (body) aspects to tap into the mind and the spirit, empowering the person to take charge of their life, health and weight. Dr. Sergey Sorin says that the ability to lose weight begins from the inside out, so turn on the power in you before attempting to take on any outside challenge, especially overcoming weight loss. This is not only a diet book that recommends a specific meal plan or exercise routine; it's a book that recommends an overhaul of your lifestyle, which includes the way you think, feel and eat. The book empowers you with ways to engage your spirit, reform your mind, as well as reshape your body. In other words, losing weight is not just about your body, it includes every aspect of your being. This is not a book about will power but a book that encourages the POWER OF YOU.

From the Author:

Physician and weight loss expert, Dr. Sergey Sorin helps remove blockades to the confluence of Mind-Body-Spirit!  By helping you to explore, understand, and master the "Power of You," Dr. Sorin creates knowledge of the internal tools we all have at our command related to sustained weight control, management, and maintenance. 
Our country is facing a deadly epidemic, and many doctors are either inept or uninterested in helping its victims overcome the devastating results. The disease is obesity, and it is estimated to be responsible for up to 400,000 excess deaths per year in America. According to recent reports, more than two-thirds of American adults are overweight or obese, and the incidence has been steadily increasing for several years. Clearly, something must be done.
Weight loss is a topic that books, magazines, TV and the Internet frequently address. Yet, many overweight individuals struggle to find a solution that will work for them. They jump from one fad diet to another but never seem to fulfill the promise of hope from the latest "miracle" diet or supplement.
One reason is that obesity is not a "one-size-fits-all" disease. Treatment must be individualized to meet specific needs or it is doomed to fail. The diet that works for Sally may fail miserably for Sue. John is bored with walking for exer­cise but loves to ride a bike. Mary needs medication for a thyroid condition, and Jill needs one for high sugar (diabetis) levels. Unless the individuality of their "likes" and "needs" is taken into account, a weight loss plan will likely fail.
Most weight loss programs emphasize diet while paying lip service to the role of exercise. Some do the reverse. A few address the need for psychological/behavioral changes. Even fewer dare address "spiritual" factors of importance.
Dr. Sergey Sorin puts it all together in "The Power Principle: Mind-Body-Spirit Approach to Ultimate Weight Loss." Successful weight management involves all three levels: physical, mental and spiritual. Like a 3-legged stool, removing one leg renders it ineffective.
Leaving one ingredient out of a recipe, even if adding an extra amount of another, will have disastrous consequences. That is why a book like this is neces­sary. It brings all the critical ingredients together, simply explained, in one easily readable book.
Dr. Sorin wisely gives you the tools to individualize your efforts to meet your specific needs. He enlists the best of allies...YOU! Do not gloss over the assign­ments he asks you to complete. They are an extremely important part of your pro­gram.
Read the book in its entirety to get the big picture. Then re-read it and complete the questionnaires. Most people will benefit greatly from review­ing Part I and Part II frequently, for these are the secret jewels of the book. Come back to them anytime you plateau or are having a difficult time sticking to your program.
Finally, an understanding and knowledgeable bariatric specialist, such as Dr. Sorin, can help you on your journey. Many doctors aren't that interested or trained in this field, but here is one who is. Dr. Sorin even includes information and tips to help you find a specialist who can help you.
It is said that knowledge is power. Dr. Sorin has given you valuable knowl­edge and tools to empower you to success. If you will add your personal commit­ment and be persistent, you will not fail.
