My colleague Dr. Holly Wyatt and I have written a book, The State of Slim, to share our 20+ years of experience in helping people not just lose weight but keep it off.
This book is the results of our experience producing weight loss in individual and groups, our extensive research, and and work with the National Weight Control Registry, a group of people who have succeeded in long-term weight loss.
Successful weight loss is as much about mindset as about diet and exercise. The differences between those who succeed and those who fail has to do with the mental approach to behavior change.
Long term weight loss is hard but it is possible and it is worth it!
