A short interview with UCLA Professors Thomas Bradbury and Benjamin Karney, authors of Love Me Slender, the first book to show couples how to team up to eat right, move more, and maintain a healthy weight.
Described as 'revolutionary' by Dr. Harville Hendrix, Love Me Slender is based on Bradbury and Karney's observations of hundreds of couples discussing the kinds of support they need to make lasting changes to their weight and health.
Published by Simon & Schuster, Love Me Slender will be available on February 4, 2014.
Meeting our goals for diet and exercise can be hard, but our intimate relationships offer ways to overcome the obstacles. Using examples from their own research, UCLA Professors Bradbury and Karney discuss how couples talk to each other about their weight and health, and they offer simple, practical recommendations on how we can ask for and receive the support we need.
Every year, Professors Karney and Bradbury teach a large lecture class on Intimate Relationships to undergraduates at UCLA. Videos of these lectures are provided below. The presented material corresponds to chapters in Intimate Relationships, a textbook written by Bradbury and Karney and published by WW Norton.
