The Wellness Workbook for Bipolar Disorder
About the Book
Studies show there is a clear link between bipolar disorder and obesity-related illnesses. In this workbook, a leading Harvard Medical School researcher and bipolar expert presents a step-by-step, evidence-based behavioral lifestyle program to help people with bipolar disorder live healthy lives, regulate moods, and lose weight.
If you have bipolar disorder, you already know about the emotional ups and downs that can accompany this disorder. But you may not know that people with bipolar disorder are far more likely to die from obesity-related illnesses as a result of poor nutrition and poor lifestyle choices.
For the first time ever, this comprehensive workbook offers the proven-effective, Harvard-researched diet and lifestyle program made popular in the best-selling book Eat, Drink, and Be Healthy, to help you manage your moods, lose weight, and thrive.
When you are experiencing a manic or depressive episode, making healthy lifestyle choices is probably the last thing on your mind. That’s why The Wellness Workbook for Bipolar Disorder offers guidance to help you implement healthy changes into your daily life—one step at a time.
