Dr George Blair-West is a bestselling, award-winning author, medical doctor, and psychiatrist. His bestselling book (in Australia) 'WEIGHT LOSS FOR FOOD LOVERS: Understanding our minds and why we sabotage our weight loss,' published in 2006 was the first book to comprehensively review the research into Restraint Theory and how emotional deprivation causes dietary sabotage. It went on to identify the predictors of sustained weight loss, the problems of 'motivational fatigue' with exercise and a variety of person-specific reasons behind why people sabotage their weight loss.
Dr Blair-West works as a psychiatrist in private practice in Brisbane, Australia. He sub-specialises in just three areas, trauma therapy, weight management and relationship therapy. His next book is all about how to choose a partner who is good for you - along the theme that prevention is better than the elusive 'cure' of relationship therapy! He divides his week equally between researching and writing, and the eternal source of his inspiration - his courageous patients.
