More than sixty percent of Americans are over-weight, over-spent or over-stressed, and all three have increased significantly in just the last fifty years. While most of us tell ourselves we simply lack will-power, the real problem is the sea of temptations we swim in every day. No society in human history has experienced the abundance of cheap, unhealthy food, easy access to credit, pressures to spend and accumulate, and the never ending list of entertainments and distractions available to us. Living with this unprecedented amount of temptation has created the Never Enough Mindset, where the antidote to discontent and unhappiness seems to be more - more spending, more eating, more scheduling. As a nation, we can't seem to get enough.

Fat, Broke, and Busy shows you how to effectively manage your health, wealth, and stress, and how to break out of the Never Enough Mindset.

You can:
- Discover the three drives of behavior.
- Take charge of your health, wealth, and stress.
- Reprogram your mind so that your temptations no longer tempt you.
- Learn how to truly feel as though who you are and what you have is enough.
