In easy conversational tones, Linda Ouellette, LPC, talks of her journey through this process, as well as the journeys of others. Highlighting the inner changes that have helped her along the way, Linda invites you to join her in exploring what’s not working and what is working.

Linda brings the discussion down to earth and shows what it really takes to recover. Linda Ouellette, LPC, is a licensed professional counselor in Tucson, Arizona. She received her master’s degree in counseling and psychology from Prescott College in 2001 and has worked in private practice as well as serving as a trauma therapist at a world-renowned rehabilitation center.

She is a Chicagoan by birth but has lived in Tucson since 1983 and calls the Southwest her home.
SAVE TIME & UNDERSTAND MORE! WARNING: This is not the actual book Fat Chance by Dr. Robert Lustig. Do not buy this summary & analysis if you are looking for a full copy of this enjoyable and very well-researched book, which can be found back on the Amazon search page.Instead, we have already read Fat Chance and pulled out some of the best ideas, insights and take-away points relating to diabetes, sugar addiction, the obesity epidemic and so much more to give you a comprehensive chapter-by-chapter summary and analysis. In doing so, unfortunately we do not have the space to include all of the many important ideas and anecdotes found in Fat Chance. To get it all, you need to order the full book. Packaged together in an engaging and easily digestible format, this concise summary works best as an unofficial study guide or companion to read alongside the book. FAT CHANCE: BEATING THE ODDS AGAINST SUGAR, PROCESSED FOOD, OBESITY AND DISEASE — ROBERT LUSTIGNo matter where you go or what you do, it’s nearly impossible to miss the signs that we are facing an obesity epidemic and sugar addiction problem. At the same time, it’s nearly impossible to avoid advertisements for fast food—which, amusingly, are frequently positioned immediately adjacent to public service announcements about obesity and weight loss plans. Childhood obesity is on the rise. Sugar free or low fat options seem to be absent from most menus. Everybody is quick to assign blame elsewhere: the food industry points to television, video games and computers; television points back at the fast food and junk food industries. Dr. Robert Lustig is one of the world’s leading experts on childhood obesity. In Fat Chance, he presents a compelling argument that will no doubt awaken many from their sugar-induced stupor. Dr. Lustig’s writing is both enjoyable and informative. His suggestions and solutions may not win him many friends in the fast food industry as readers may steer their cars away from drive-thru windows and head towards the supermarket health aisle, but the forcefulness of his ideas should serve as a wake-up call to readers and these industries to begin to change their ways and do their part in rectifying our obesity-fueled, ticking time-bomb. FROM START-TO-FINISH IN JUST 15 MINUTES!Here’s your chapter-by-chapter guide to Robert Lustig’s Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity, and Disease that you can start and finish right now!
The Freedom Diet
The Simple 6 Step System for Fast, Easy and Permanent Weight Loss
Why is it that so many diets don’t work?
Or that they work short term, but that the weight ends up coming back as soon as the diet stops?
Surely weight loss doesn’t have to be so difficult? Surely there must be some way to end the cycle of struggling to lose a few pounds only to gain them back over the next few weeks?
The good news is that losing weight really doesn’t have to be that hard. But it has to be done the right way. In other words, successful weight loss has to be based on the way our bodies actually work and not on the latest diet fad or gimmick. And, of course, our success has to be lasting: the weight we lose has to stay off for good.
This book will show you how to do this. It will show you the fast, easy way to lose weight permanently and the simple 6 step system that will get you there. It will also explode some of the myths around popular diets that, as millions of dieters can testify, just don’t seem to work.
There are no gimmicks in this book. Instead it is based on our understanding of the way our bodies really work – an understanding that allows you both to lose weight successfully and then to keep it off.
On the Freedom Diet you’ll never find yourself feeling hungry. That’s because to maximize your weight loss you will be eating plenty of tasty foods chosen to provide you with the right nutrients at the right times, with the emphasis on:
Slow-digesting, low GI (glycemic index), high fiber carbs
Why is this book called the Freedom Diet?
Well, it’s because the whole idea is to free you from everything that’s wrong with traditional diets (and as you’ll see, there’s quite a lot). To free you from:
Feeling hungry all the time
Losing weight only to gain it all back
Relying on willpower
Confusion about what to eat
Uncertainty about what sort of diet to follow

Fads and gimmicks that damage your health
