Douglas Lisle, PhD
We were privileged to meet Doug Lisle, who came to Austin, Texas to speak at a few lifestyle programs, including one we helped with in Hawaii. He is a gifted speaker. We know that he speaks at numerous weekend immersion programs. Douglas is a coauthor of the book The Pleasure Trap, which was featured in the film Forks Over Knives. His understanding of the human psyche and how to disarm opposition when you embark on making significant lifestyle change is incredibly helpful to the participants. He actually teaches us how to not strive for perfection to the point that we set ourselves up for failure. He motivates by giving freedom.
The embedded video entitled "How to Lose Weight Without Losing Your Mind" was filmed in the Redondo Beach Adventist Church in Southern California. Dr. Lisle is being introduced by Chef AJ, one of our favorite plant-based celebrities!
