Don’t bite off more than you can chew. Successful weight loss is achieved one small change at a time.
We all know we can’t lose twenty pounds by Saturday, but that doesn’t stop us from becoming frustrated when the latest fad or crash diet fails. Unrealistic expectations and our instant gratification society can turn losing weight into such an overwhelming concept that many simply stop trying. Popular dietitian Keri Gans has heard every story out there and spent years helping clients retrain their habits so they can form new routines that will have a decisive impact on their weight. The cornerstone of her belief, and that of her new book THE SMALL CHANGE DIET: 10 Steps to a Thinner, Healthier You (Gallery Books, March 2011, $15.00), is that the changes that will make the most impact are often the smallest ones.
THE SMALL CHANGE DIET shows readers how to take ten bad habits and transform them into ways to spark immediate weight loss and guarantee a lifetime of good health. Each chapter is based on one of Keri’s Ten Small Changes, beginning with a “Small Change Plan” and detailing the steps to achieving the designated small change. Once readers master one change, they progress to another, tailoring the speed and duration of the diet to their own individual needs. A generous selection of tips, frequently asked questions, and Keri’s upbeat encouragement all make becoming healthier and thinner as painless and enjoyable as possible.
