Low-carb, low-fat, low-cal. There are so many diets out there, and they all work—for someone. If you’re like most people, you’ve probably tried more than one and found the results are, at best, only temporary. So the question is, which diet is right for you?
Lisa Sanders, M.D., author of the acclaimed “Diagnosis” column in the New York Times Magazine, has uncovered the one new truth that is changing the world of dieting: Everyone puts on weight in their own individual way. Permanent weight loss, then, is only possible on a diet that fits your individual food preferences, lifestyle, and medical profile. In what O magazine voted “the best” in their annual diet book round-up, Sanders presents a science-based, customized weight-loss plan that works—for life. The key to the plan is a questionnaire covering everything from your medical history to which foods just taste good and which foods actually satisfy hunger.
*Use the questionnaire to identify the basic diet that's best for you
*Learn how to tailor that diet to accommodate your lifestyle, activity level and tastes
*Understand that dieting isn't about your moral strength, it's about compatibility between you and your diet.
