BACKGROUND

Weight Loss Boss is a new book written by the President and CEO of Weight Watchers, David Kirchhoff. While Mr. Kirchhoff runs one the most trusted weight loss companies in the world, he also has a story to tell in his personal weight loss journey. His book shows you how to finally win at losing and take charge in an out-of-control food world. Instead of pushing you toward a quick fix weight loss plan that you can’t maintain long-term, Mr. Kirchhoff shows you how to love low-calorie foods that are satisfying and full of nutrients, learn habits that you can continue forever and make changes that become automatic.

In this book he talks about why diets fail, why people gain back the weight they’ve lost plus extra, and tosses willpower out the window where lasting results are concerned. Each chapter in the book showcases a Weight Watchers profile and tells you the story of someone that has achieved their goals. Weight Loss Boss offers a realistic look at what happens when you’re trying to lose weight. When reading the book, you realize that the struggles are real, but you can overcome them.
