The Flex Diet: Design-Your-Own Weight Loss Planby James Beckerman
Synopses & Reviews
Small Changes Yield Big Results.
Many diet books present readers with a single, inflexible program which forces them to stay on that diet or risk another dieting failure. Rather than teaching you just one way to lose ten or twenty or even fifty pounds, The Flex Diet shows you how to lose a single pound... in 200 different ways. A medically proven approach to weight loss from WebMD's heart expert, The Flex Diet allows you to create your own customized weight-loss plan — one that fits your lifestyle, is full of tasty and nutritious meals, boosts energy levels, and keeps the weight off for good.
Start today to lose five pounds: The Flex Diet begins with a two-week phase called Today, when you begin to make small changes to your diet and lifestyle that will help you lose weight right now and create a blueprint to a new you. It's as easy as keeping a food diary, taking a multivitamin, and getting more sleep.
Do it every day and lose ten more pounds: Next, three weeks of Every Day Solutions introduce meal plans for breakfast, lunch, and dinner with dozens of tasty recipes and complete nutritional information. Heart healthy exercise and lifestyle options let you retool your life. Get yourself started on positive Every Day habits like storing leftovers before you eat, switching to skim milk, and walking during breaks at work.
Have it Your Way to keep inches off your waist: The Your Way phase offers nearly 100 more lifestyle changes and solutions that you can use to take things to the next level and continue a lifetime of slim and healthy living.
The Flex Diet is an exciting new approach to a new you, your way.
"Beckerman, an Oregon cardiologist who is the heart expert at WebMD.com and MedHelp.org, takes a personalized approach to weight loss, claiming, 'You can't treat everyone the same way even if they have the same problem.' His plan is divided into three phases — a two-week period covering what readers can do 'Today,' three weeks of tips for 'Every Day,' and long-term options called 'Your Way.' 'Today' ideas include finding a weight-loss buddy or joining a support group, as well as Internet solutions such as signing up for automatic Flex Diet texts, blogging, and joining Twitter. 'Every Day' suggestions include eating beans, tofu, and fish once a week (recipes included), avoiding all-you-can-eat restaurants, and refraining from finishing off your child's dinner. In 'Your Way,' he offers a range of exercise choices and even suggests dining on unappetizing blue plates, eating only until 80% full, or ordering a kid's meal at fast food restaurants for better portion control. Wellness, Beckerman maintains, is about choice and change; he offers a flexible plan and a smorgasbord of weight-loss ideas that readers can customize to fit their taste and lifestyle. (Jan.)"
