This completely revised and updated edition of the popular Mayo Clinic Diet is a practical, no-nonsense approach to weight loss. Designed to help individuals lose weight and, most importantly, keep it off, The Mayo Clinic Diet, 2nd edition, offers expert advice to help you kick-start and stay on track in your fitness journey.
The Mayo Clinic Diet is not your latest fad diet—it’s a simple, time-tested approach to losing weight and keeping it off. By giving you concrete tools—like daily activity planners, four weeks of 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.
The exceptional advice outlined in The Mayo Clinic Diet draws upon years of research from thousands of cases to teach you how to break five unhealthy habits that sabotage your progress and adopt five healthy habits that will make you look and feel your best. This revised edition of the #1 New York Times bestselling book also offers 80 additional pages of content from health experts, including the improved Mayo Clinic Healthy Weight Pyramid and the Healthy Dining Table visual guides. The Mayo Clinic Diet is organized into three sections:
1. 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.
2. 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.
3. 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, 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!
