This revised edition of the #1 New York Times bestselling book offers a simple, time-tested, no-nonsense approach to losing weight and keeping it off. The Mayo Clinic Diet isn't a fad diet - it's an approach that draws on years of research from thousands of individuals seeking to lose weight. It's a plan for a sustainable lifestyle, not just a diet. By giving you concrete tools--like daily activity planners, delicious recipes, and tips for finding nutritious ingredients at the grocery store--this book will help you craft a tailored weight-loss plan that works best for your body. New to this edition, you'll find recipes and meal plans to fit a variety of eating styles, including keto, the Mediterranean diet, vegetarian and higher protein. Step by step, you'll learn the habits, tips and tricks that will help you lose weight and keep it off for good. The Mayo Clinic Diet is organized into three sections: Section One outlines Lose It , a two-week quick-start program designed to help you lose 6 to 10 pounds in a safe and healthy way, jump-starting your weight loss journey. Lose It prompts you to add 5 habits, break 5 habits, and try 5 bonus habits, all of which are proven to help people maintain a healthy weight. Section Two outlines Live It , a long-term maintenance plan developed to help you stay on track and continue to lose 1 to 2 pounds a week until you reach your goal. Along the way, you'll learn key behaviors that will help you maintain a healthy weight for life. Section Three offers bonus content like detailed meal plans, easy-to-make recipes, food lists to make grocery shopping a breeze, and tried-and-tested tips for overcoming weight-loss challenges. Along with the accompanying food and activity planner, The Mayo Clinic Diet Journal, and the Mayo Clinic Diet online platform, this invaluable resource will help you meet every one of your fitness goals while forever changing your mindset around weight loss. When it comes to diets, one size does not fit all. Instead of promising unattainable results that can harm your body, the Mayo Clinic Diet offers a simple and customizable approach to weight loss--a healthy diet you can live with for life.
