Adriaan Liebenberg: Weight Loss is 80 Percent What You Eat, 20 Percent Exercise

The Brain Surgeon's DietDie Breinchirurg se dieetPenguin Books recently did an interview with Adriaan Liebenberg about his book, The Brain Surgeon’s Diet.

Liebenberg says that weight loss is 80 percent what you eat and 20 percent exercise. The internationally renowned neurosurgeon explains how you can break bad habits like emotional eating and maintain a healthy lifestyle while still enjoying the food you love.

The Brain Surgeon’s Diet is also available in Afrikaans as Die Breinchirurg se dieet. The author offers tips on how to use base human emotions to motivate yourself to lose weight.

Read the article:

Q: Every time I look in the mirror I feel like none of my dieting and exercise is helping, how do you keep yourself motivated?

I find that the base human emotions work the best. I always have some instance or somebody in mind when I try and motivate myself. The smirking face of someone who finds you distasteful, the look of admiration in a partner’s eyes when I did something good or a situation that I would like to unfold or would like to forget.
