About this title


Slimming is a multi-million pound business founded on failure. 95 out of every 100 people who go on a diet will regain the weight they lost and more. Yet Pete Cohen has a remarkable 80% success rate with his revolutionary twelve-week weight-control programme. Pete's approach is not about counting calories or living by someone else's set of rules; it is, quite simply, about helping people to get to know themselves better and build their new shape around the person they really are. Unless your body fits you, it's going to wear out prematurely. If you get back to your own 'blueprint', weight-loss is likely to be permanent.

Many diet books are written by people who have a weight problem. All they teach us is how to become even more obsessed with food than we already are. We are made to de-commission our body's natural weight-regulation system, reinforcing a self-destructive pattern that is eating up our lives. Pete's programme is founded on the principle that everyone has the skills and ability needed to become the shape they really want to be. What he teaches us is how to listen to our own bodies and become our own person.

Pete's attitude to life is one of infectious enthusiasm. Pete loves to eat, exercise, and work with people. If you ask him how he regulates his pleasures he'll tell you, "If you enjoy lots of things, you haven't got time for any of them to get out of control".
