For those finding it difficult to stick to last month’s New Year’s resolution to lose weight and be healthier, a new book has hit shelves to help overcome those hurdles. Local weight loss and wellness expert Dr. Catherine Wilbert recently authored the no-nonsense approach to weight loss Mending your Metabolism. Wilbert is a doctor of naturopathic medicine as well as a nutritional expert, and she stresses this book is not a diet book; rather, it’s a guide to improving quality of life through better nutrition and health. “Mending Your Metabolism focuses on more than weight management; it gives the reader a better understanding of what you eat and what it does to your body so you can always make good food choices,” says Wilbert. “You’ll have better energy, better focus, better sleep, and better overall quality of life, without the deprived, hungry, tired or miserable feeling one gets from a typical ‘diet’.” The book can be purchased directly through her Web site, www.catherinewilbert.com, or through www.amazon.com as well as at The Nutrition Company.
