My New Book! (Announcement)

In the tradition of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey, The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin, The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz, and The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo comes The Wellness Code by Dr. Brian Morris. The Wellness Code is unlike any diet book you’ve ever read. In this life-changing book, you will learn why diets don’t work and what actually does work. Backed by hundreds of references from the medical literature, The Wellness Code synthesizes decades of scientific research and clinical experience into a time-tested, holistic program for looking and feeling great. You will learn the practical tools and strategies to finally lose the weight, transform your health, and find lasting happiness.
