By applying the principles espoused in this tape, as she followed a supervised diet program with weekly weigh-ins, Dr. Yager was readily able to lose 77 pounds -- from 213 to 136 -- in 10 months (from a size 18 to a size 6).
This tape is not about a specific diet. Dr. Yager clearly points out that she is not a nutritionist; she strongly recommends that listeners get a check up and also follow a supervised, medically sound weight reduction program. What you will hear are the 7 fundamental principles of creative weight management and how those principles can help you start, and stay on, a diet and exercise plan, as well as why, this time, you will be more likely to keep off the weight you do lose.
Dr. Yager also discusses blocks to successful weight loss, and maintenance, and how to overcome those blocks, such as fear of failure or success, poor planning, impatience and low frustration tolerance, and perfectionism, the same blocks that also stand in the way of effective time management.
