Change the mind , keep the weight off!!

This is the Bible for permanent weight loss! Absolutely one of the best book talking about 26 elements in your life that need to be in line in order to keep your life full of health, for your soul, your body, and your mind! A book meant to live by the rest of your life!!

This is the book you want

As another reviewer said, the author is an employee of Medifast - but very, very little of the book is actually about weight loss. Yes, he recommends his products (and so do I, BTW, because they work), but the majority of the book is about how to think like a healthy person - how to change the way you think and run your life, and how to make those changes stick. It works. It's good science, and common sense, and stuff you never thought of, rolled up into a book that you can actually read and do something about. I HATE diet books. I hate the magic wand school of weight loss and life change. But there's nothing mushy or pseudo-science or wishful thinking here. It's about changing your mind, changing your life, and thinking like a healthy person, and THAT's what it takes to maintain a healthy weight.

From Fat and Frumpy to Fabulous

After years of yo-yo dieting and the emotional trauma that comes with recurrent diet failure, I managed to `diet' myself up to morbid obesity. Through a caring friend, I found Dr. Wayne Scott Andersen and began his program in 2002. Since I was out of control with food, I needed the structure it provided, it was easy to follow and I safely lost 135 pounds in seven months. The best part is that I have maintained a healthy weight for over six years by incorporating the teachings of Dr. Andersen and changing the way I live. Over the years, I've spent thousands of dollars on national weight loss programs, I went to fat camps when I was in middle school and high school, tried numerous diets, took nutrition classes and enrolled in gym memberships trying desperately to lose weight; I always gave up because I was hungry or was unable to stick to the diet long-term. Dr. Andersen taught me how to create a new lifestyle with healthy shopping and eating strategies; I am confident I will continue to permanently maintain a healthy weight and am convinced that I have actually improved the quality of my life. Now I know that nothing tastes as good as thin feels! Dr. A's book incorporates stories of real people that have successfully lost weight - what a motivator! We found the charts to be especially helpful regarding how to increase our activity level - progressive movement is needful and his book is comprehensive - there are pictures in the index showing simple exercises that the average person can do at home. I really like the learning keys along the margins with the caption, "Dr. A Says..." it serves to emphasize the important points that Dr. Andersen wants readers to remember and incorporate into their daily lifestyle. It's kind of like having a friend pop right up out of the textbook and whisper something really juicy in your ear; his writing is easy to understand and it seems like it is personally written to the reader. In Dr. A's Habits Of Health is an assessment each reader can complete to determine their risk of inflammation and heart disease and he teaches us how to progressively incorporate his easy habits that help us to create a lifetime of health. I want to be healthy - not just for a month or two - but for the remainder of my days. His book provides a better understanding of how to choose nutrient-dense foods and to develop a solid eating strategy for each day. I highly recommend Dr. A's Habits of Health to others who are serious about reaching and maintaining a healthy weight. It changed my life from being fat and frumpy to fabulous!
