"Almost everyone knows the truth: to lose the weight, we need to eat less and move more," says weight-management pioneer Jean Harvey-Berino. "This book is about the missing link: how to do it." Harvey-Berino believes that permanent weight loss only happens by changing everyday behaviors: replacing old, unhealthy habits with new ones. And clinical research proves her right: participants in her behaviorally based VTrim (TM) Weight Management Program lost an average of 21 pounds in 6 months-more than double that of an online commercial weight-loss program. In a unique collaboration, The EatingWell Diet brings you the tools that helped "VTrimmers" succeed-including goal-setting, self-tracking, and controlling eating "triggers"-along with wisdom and recipes from the creative cooks and nutrition experts at the nation's premier magazine of food and health. More than just a sensible way to lose weight, it's a workbook for a healthy way of life.
