Description: As Director of the Johns Hopkins Weight Management Center, Lawrence J. Cheskin, M.D., has helped overweight people to lose, collectively, many thousands of pounds. At Johns Hopkins, Dr. Cheskin and his team of experts devise an individualized plan of action containing the key ingredients crucial to healthy success: an attainable goal, an appealing diet, and a practical program of physical activity. Based on the latest research in medicine, psychology, nutrition, and exercise physiology, the Personal Plan of Action offers a unique approach that recognizes the different reasons people gain weight -- and why they have trouble losing weight and keeping it off.

Now, for the first time, the advantages of an expertly designed Johns Hopkins Weight Management Center plan are available to those who want to lose weight on their own. Losing Weight for Good helps readers assess their own specific reasons for weight gain. With this knowledge, they can design their own step-by-step program for weight loss based on the individualized approach that has been so successful at the Johns Hopkins Weight Management Center.

This individualized approach takes into account personal differences in such areas as emotional makeup, lifestyle, family circumstances, coping style, physical health and economic means. Unlike typical diet books that offer simplistic, formulaic recommendations for cutting fat, Losing Weight for Good tells how to develop and follow a plan that meets each person's own specific needs. Readers establish weight loss goals, dietary aims, and an exercise schedule, while building critical coping skills. Chapter topics include:
-- Why Lose Weight?
-- Getting Ready
-- Beginning YourSelf-Assessment
-- Developing Your Personal Plan
-- Why Do You Eat?
-- What's a "Good" Diet, Anyway?
-- Exercise That Works for You
-- Keeping It Off

Losing Weight for Good includes self-assessment questionnaires for determining personal readiness, coping style, activity level, calorie intake, and more, as well as lists of foods and their nutritional content. By following Dr. Cheskin's advice, dieters learn about themselves while building self-confidence and making satisfying changes in lifestyle and attitude.

Losing Weight for Good offers hope and reassurance tempered by realism and sound advice. "The basic message is this", writes Dr. Cheskin. "You do not need to change everything about yourself and your life to lose weight and keep it off. You do need to identify your specific problem areas and find creative, individualized solutions". This book will turn that message into something the reader can use, in a format that combines personal assessment, education, and practical advice from a highly respected authority.
