BALTIMORE, MD. (PRWEB) September 15, 2012
Rigorous dieting. Militaristic workout techniques. Miracle slimming products. Nowadays, the methods of losing weight seem to stretch endlessly but some statistics put the effectiveness of these “solutions” in questionable light. For instance, the Federal Trade Commission published a study in 2002 reporting 55% of all weight loss claims as having “strained credibility”. Another research states that 95% of dieters gain their weight back.
So, is long-term weight loss maintenance really an impossible feat? Teresa Fuller, M.D. Ph.D says it does not have to be. In her book, Change 1 Thing: A Doctor's 12 Step Guide to Permanent Weight Loss, Disease Prevention and a Lifetime of Incredible Health, she rallies the way to permanent weight loss and, ultimately, a healthier life.
Dr. Fuller shares that her innovative step-by-step approach was developed after several of her patients asked her how they can lose weight and improve their health. Her book is founded on studies suggesting that gradual adoption of specific habits is effective for maintaining weight loss. The twelve steps in the manual are examples of such habits. Since it takes 21 days to make a new habit, readers can devote one month to firmly establish one of the 12 steps before tackling the next. After a year, all 12 steps will have been completed and the several health benefits can be enjoyed. These include weight loss, lower risk of having common chronic diseases and improvement of energy, vitality and mental clarity.
Groundbreaking, unique and practicable, Change 1 Thing: A Doctor's 12 Step Guide to Permanent Weight Loss, Disease Prevention and a Lifetime of Incredible Health is designed for health-conscious individuals and especially for people who want to break free from chronic health problems and frustrating weight loss techniques that only work for the short-term.
