The Skinny on Dieting Rights & Wrongs in Skinny on Slim

April 14th, 2013 No Comments Tags: , , , , , , ,

You know the saying there are a 1,000 ways to do the same thing right? That certainly pertains to how to approach weight loss to suit you to a “T” and to do it for good. There are certainly many ways to get it right provided you don’t land on a snake, that is, in the game of Snakes and Ladders: The Weight Loss Edition that I wrote about a few posts ago.

  • In my new book Skinny on Slim I refer to the successful weight losers of the National Weight Control Registry (NWCR) out of Brown Medical School in Providence Rhode Island. They track over 10,000 successful weight losers who have lost at least 30 pounds and maintained it for over a year. They identify what they did to lose and maintain their weight loss. This seems like the most logical place to start, don’t you think? Here are some details about the registrants:
  • 80% women average age 45, 145 pounds, 20% men average age 49, 190 pounds
  • 45% followed their own plan, 55% followed a program
  • 95% increased physical activity (mostly by walking)
  • 78% eat breakfast daily
  • 75% monitor weight regularly (scale or putting on jeans)
  • 62% watch less than 10 hours TV/day

When you want to find success in life why not model someone who actually succeeded in what you’re trying to achieve. In the “weight loss arena” follow the behaviour of successful weight losers. Read all of the juicy details in my book:

Get my recent release Skinny on Slim You can also find it on-line at Chapters/Kobo, Apple’s i-Tunes, Barnes & Noble, Diesel plus Sony.

By the way I devote an entire chapter on dieting wrong to help you avoid those snakes too!
