Why do diets fail? What really does work to lose weight and keep it off? In this groundbreaking book, leading medical reporter Christine Dumas shares the cutting-edge weight-loss research that most doctors simply don't have time to learn, distilling it into a three-phase program that helps readers work with their body to lose weight and feel great.
She explains why the body is hard-wired to gain weight, how stress and fatigue affect appetite, and how what we don't eat is as important as what we do. She shows how to combat the body's "no starvation policy" and change our approach to sleep, stress, diet, and exercise to achieve weight goals. The book includes a 14-day meal plan, but one of the best features of the program is that it works with any diet/exercise program to make it more successful.
