139 indexed pages. From his work as Professor of Psychiatry and Addiction Medicine Christchurch School of Medicine," Dr Sellman knows only too well how dif?cult it is for people to change their behaviour - and thatís what real weight loss is all about. Motivated by his own desire to change his life, and drawing on his long professional experience, he has devised a ?ve-point strategy: Take control; Get moving; Eat well; Persist; Enjoy life. This is a simple, but inspiring book about how to lose weight, and how to build a lifestyle that sustains this permanently. The author, Doug Sellman, is a Professor of Psychiatric and Addiction Medicine at the Christchurch School of Medicine. In his mid-forties he realized that he needed to do something about his steadily increasing weight, and set about losing his excess kilos over the next five years. This book tells the story of his journey, of what he learnt, and using his professional training, the basic strategy that he developed to do this. Doug Sellman believes that the answers to permanent weight loss are fundamentally basic, but that within these strategies we each need to devise our own personal approach for losing weight. With this in mind, he has devised a five-point strategy that defines a new approach to the problem of losing weight: taking control of your situation; getting active, eating well; learning to persist; and getting maximum enjoyment from your life. These strategies are not magical, quick-fix answers - they are flexible, common-sense applications, which take time. But they work because they are built around the concept of long-term lifestyle change. Real Weight Loss offers a wonderfully straightforward way of fighting back against excess weight and the subsequent health compromises that come with it. Highly readable and user-friendly, it is an important book that deserves to make a real impact in New Zealand. Doug Sellman is one of New Zealand's leading psychiatrists and addiction medicine specialists. He has been the Director of the National Addiction Centre (NAC) at the University of Otago, Christchurch since its inception in 1996; a Centre which is dedicated to improving treatment for people with addiction through research, teaching and workforce development. He was promoted to a Personal Chair in Psychiatry and Addiction Medicine in 2005 in recognition of an academic career featuring the development of a national postgraduate training programme in addiction and co-existing disorders, establishment of an ongoing nationally recognized addiction medicine training programme for trainee doctors, a series of internationally recognized clinical research projects in a wide range of addiction topics, all in close liaison with the addiction treatment field in New Zealand.
