Share Article

From the "Weight Loss Capital of the World," Gerard J. Musante, Ph.D. has published a book about his acclaimed weight loss program. A residential program, Structure House(R) is a center for weight control and lifestyle change. Now, for the first time, the program is available in a book, The Structure House Weight Loss Plan. Dr. Musante's unique approach to losing weight focuses on psychology and behavioral modification to achieve long-term weight loss.

The plan supports sensible exercise and eating nutritious food, in appropriate portions, three times a day. I wrote The Structure House Weight Loss Plan so our successful weight loss program can be shared with many more people.

    The program's success attracts thousands of people from all over the world and helped Durham, N.C. earn the reputation as the "Weight Loss Capital of the World." During the past 30 years, the Structure House program has helped more than 30,000 people lose more than 318 tons of weight - that's 636,000 pounds!

"We work with people to expose unhealthy eating behaviors such as boredom, habit and stress and I address this in the book," said Dr. Musante. "The plan supports sensible exercise and eating nutritious food, in appropriate portions, three times a day. I wrote The Structure House Weight Loss Plan so our successful weight loss program can be shared with many more people."

Dr. Musante founded Structure House after recognizing the inadequacy of other weight loss programs. Other diet plans did not address the underlying reasons for overeating, or focused solely on one side of the issue. The Structure House plan integrates principles of nutrition and exercise with psychology in a treatment approach designed to change the eating habits and lifestyles of overweight people. Dr. Musante named his weight loss center Structure House to emphasize the critical role structure plays in achieving long-term weight loss.

Dr. Musante's new book provides positive ways to understand dysfunctional eating patterns, while simultaneously providing resources and coping strategies for each one. He outlines a proactive plan for each environment (home, workplace, restaurants) and for each emotion that will lead readers to regain a sense of balance and develop a positive relationship with food. The end result is an all-encompassing lifestyle change for weight loss and healthy living.
