Life is too short to live without Cheesecake – Jo Sherring


lifes too short to live without cheesecake

ANOTHER book on weight loss?  Really?  I thought there was nothing more to say.  Turns out I was wrong.

Three things I learned that will impact on my practice:

  1. Most people hate being told what to do.
  2. Increasing knowledge and intention doesn’t always lead to better outcomes.
  3. Willpower IS your friend, but that unreliable one that lets you down and stands you up.

Jo Sherring, a Townsville mental health occupational therapist (say that three times fast), has taken a new look at personal and social reasons for the “Obesity Epidemic”.  What emerges is a fascinating and hilarious book with a different approach to weight control – forgiving yourself for being human and working out what makes you happier (even, or especially, if that includes cheesecake).

There are some bonus parenting and relationship tips that I think were serendipitously included.

“The first book I have finished in 10 years” – Karl (40 something psychologist).
