The Promise Of OneDr. Ramani blends real-life examples with her extensive knowledge of mental health and mental illness as she discusses the power of setting and achieving personal goals by breaking them down into smaller steps. Emphasizing the importance of taking one task at a time, Dr. Ramani shows that your goals are attainable.
The Power of WHYInstead of trying to please others all the time, what would happen if you listened to your inner voice? What if you could find a way to stop eating, stop working at a bad job, stop a bad relationship before you walk down the aisle—stop anything when you are full? Understanding the WHY can lead to real and lasting change--both in your weight loss and all other areas of your life.
Dr. Ramani takes an iconoclastic, brave, edgy, and witty approach to self-help. She teaches you to unearth that inner voice, and let it be heard. Through real-life anecdotes and exercises, she gives you the tools you need to live on your terms, not those of the stakeholders that surround you. It will help you trust yourself and act from the gut, while making that gut smaller at the same time. And in so doing, it will help people live lives that are braver, more authentic, and less riddled with regret.
