About the book:


Most attempts to lose weight fail. The diet is too difficult, you are hungry or you are not seeing good enough results. This is not surprising, because you have to learn to lose weight: you have to practise, overcome hurdles and know the right strategy. After all, losing weight is about the mind-set. Het hongerige brein is not a diet, but a personal weight-loss coach. Whichever diet you choose, Dr Frank van Berkum can help you follow it successfully. His clever tricks, effective strategies and delicious recipes make losing weight tasty and fun. You'll soon see excess weight disappear once and for all.

Dr Frank van Berkum (1956) is an internist and an expert in the field of nutrition, overweight and diets. His bestseller Gezond slank met Dr. Frank was the most widely sold Dutch book in 2010. He has a large medical practice and helps thousands of patients in their struggles with overweight and the related diseases and conditions.
