Publisher's Summary

Despite the success stories publicized by Atkins, South Beach, Weight Watchers, and others, 90% of all diets end in failure. How can we fix the way we lose weight so that we make results last?
Weight-loss expert Dr. Yoni Freedhoff has uncovered the flawed thinking that sabotages even the most earnest weight-loss efforts. The majority of dieting or weight-loss programs call for regular sacrifice: Give up an entire food group; fight hunger day and night; undertake exhausting and grueling exercise regiments. These approaches are unrealistic, unhealthy, and make it nearly impossible to maintain results.
Now, at last, there is hope. In The Diet Fix, Dr. Freedhoff offers a tested program for breaking down the negative thought patterns that prevent people from losing weight and keeping it off. Through the course of years of research and patient treatment, he has developed a 10-Day Reset that supports losing weight while maintaining a healthy, enjoyable lifestyle. This reset is designed to eliminate the habits that so often lead to weight gain: Use it to shut down cravings, prevent indulgences from turning into binges, and break up with the scale once and for all. The 10-Day Reset can make any diet more effective, whether it’s low-carb, low-fat, meal replacement, calorie tracking, or anything in between.
Whether used on its own or in conjunction with any other diet, Dr. Freedhoff’s program shows how to replace this toxic dieting mindset with positive beliefs and behaviors. It is time to break the cycle of traumatic dieting. With The Diet Fix, Dr. Freedhoff offers a groundbreaking, useable guide to begin living happily while losing permanently.

What the Critics Say

"As should be obvious to anyone who's been paying attention, these and many other approaches to weight-loss can work. The real challenge is keeping weight off, and Freedhoff's advice focuses on how to win that battle by formulating a plan you can happily live with for the rest of your life, not just for a few weeks or months." (Runner's World)
"The Diet Fix delivers. This is a wonderful approach to tackling the Diet Demons. It allows people to keep what they like most about food - the taste and indulgences - and to get rid of what they don't like about food - overeating and guilt. It's about balance. Regaining balance in our diet as well as in our lives." (Brian Wansink, PhD, Author of Mindless Eating and Slim by Design)
"Here finally is a book capturing the nuts and bolts of the dieting culture that has gripped North America. With Dr. Freedhoff's presentation of fact supported by years of firsthand experience, a crystal-clear picture of what works, what doesn't and what is myth emerges. The Diet Fix is a service to all." (Tosca Reno, author of the New York Times best-selling The Eat Clean Diet)

Very helpful

This is very interesting to listen to when you have struggled with your weight for a long time and tried all sorts of crazy and non sustainable diets in the past. Although you might not want to follow all his recommendations, some of them are very helpful.
