(Speaker biography at time of recording)

 

After 15 years of struggling with his weight, Mr. Brechner finally figured out the key to losing weight and keeping it off. He documented everything he learned and did, and his book, "The Mind Diet," is the result. What's fascinating is that his discovery has nothing to do with specific foods, exercise or medical approaches. It's all about reaching what he calls "the moment of truth," where people make up their minds, once and for all, to eat healthy and lose weight permanently. His portion of the "Educate, Motivate, and Empower" presentation draws upon his personal success and extensive research.
