In How We Did It: Weight Loss Choices that Will Work for You
, I tell the stories of people who have succeeded at their goal of weight loss, whether that means 20 pounds or 220 pounds. These stories will inspire, inform and encourage readers to find the weight loss plan that will work for them.
Weight loss plans are too often presented as one-size-fits-all propositions. How We Did It
compares the wide gamut of weight loss programs--South Beach, the Zone, Atkins, Thin Within, First Place, Weight Watchers and many more--and shows how weight loss seekers have succeeded using popular plans or by creating their own recipe for success.
My book is a resource for both inspiration and information. With chapters that cover everything from childhood obesity to bariatric surgery, the book can help the millions of adults who are struggling with their weight. In inspiring profiles, readers meet others just like them who may have tried and failed to lose weight, but who finally found a way to success that suited their lifestyle, personality, spirituality and internal values.
