The missing piece to the most sought-after health goal, How to Lose Weight for the Last Time offers brain-based solutions for dropping pounds and keeping them off without suffering or sacrifice.

As a pediatrician, Katrina Ubell, MD, always struggled with her weight–she was either 40 pounds overweight, or struggling to lose that weight. Although she'd regularly counsel parents on the importance of keeping their kids healthy and fostering good eating habits, Dr. Ubell, as a busy professional, was never able to do the same for herself. Like everyone else, she tried many different diets and programs, but would always regain the weight. 

In 2015, Dr. Ubell "cracked the code" for making weight loss permanent, and developed a program targeted at busy physicians like herself who often de-prioritize their own wellness. As a weight loss coach, Dr. Ubell has helped over 1,000 busy physicians and professionals find and stay at a healthy weight with her brain-based program, and is now ready to bring this program to the general public. 

Dr. Ubell's program doesn't involve any unrealistic diets, plans, special foods, supplements, or even rigorous exercise protocols; instead, she uses a deep understanding of the brain and behavior patterns to get results. Through her work, she has been able to uncover and speak into the universal obstacles that stand in our way of losing and keeping off weight. 

  • “In this terrific and hopeful book, Dr. Katrina Ubell extends upon the physiology of weight gain and obesity by providing science backed guidance for real behavioral changes with lasting results.” 
    Jason Fung, MD, author of The Obesity Code
  • “By moving the conversation around weight loss away from willpower and instead applying what science knows about our neurobiology, Dr. Katrina Ubell is able to offer practical tools to manage thoughts, habits, and emotions around food so that weight loss can be permanent.”
    Benjamin Hardy, PhD, organizational psychologist and bestselling author of Personality Isn’t Permanent
  • “As a board-certified obesity medicine physician, obesity researcher, and successful weight loser of 150 pounds myself, when it came to weight loss I thought I knew it all. Until I met Katrina. The advice that she gave me as a client, and now gives to you in this very book, is truly the missing key to unlock permanent weight loss and find freedom around food. After doing this work, I finally felt at peace after years of food drama. If you have the same ‘will-I-won’t-I’ food obsession that I’ve had, this book will be life changing for you.”
    Dr. Jen Kerns, MD, MSHS, diplomate of the American Board of Obesity Medicine
  • “Dr. Ubell’s openness and honesty about her past struggles with weight is both refreshing and encouraging. The truth is many health professionals secretly battle with confidence, shame, and guilt over a discrepancy between their words and actions when it comes to weight. Thankfully, Dr. Ubell’s proven success formula has helped thousands of people. Finally, we have her solution now in book form. Dive into the content. Apply the principles. And get ready to lose weight for the last time.”
    Dr. Kary Oberbrunner, Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling author, and CEO of Igniting Souls Publishing Agency
  • “How to Lose Weight for the Last Time is a beautifully written and brilliantly structured book on how to lose weight and keep it off. Dr. Ubell integrates science, case studies, and her own personal experiences to form a simple step-by-step program. If you’ve been struggling with losing weight for years or for decades, you owe it to yourself to read this book.”
    Alan Gordon, LCSW, author of The Way Out: A Revolutionary, Scientifically Proven Approach to Healing Chronic Pain
