Consider this: 85 percent of people who go on a diet without behavior support gain the weight back within two years.
Those are lousy odds!
If that isn’t enough to convince you to abandon the dieting circus, let’s look at a recent study out of UCLA. In the largest, most comprehensives and rigorous analysis to date, investigators reviewing thirty-one long-term dieting studies discovered that the dieters gained their weight back and then some. In fact, several studies indicated that dieters are actually more likely to gain weight in the future and to suffer from poorer long-term health than non-dieters. Ironic isn’t?
Dieting on its own may not be the answer, but neither is the status quo.
Medical literature is teeming with studies that confirm that being overweight increases the likelihood of a variety of illnesses. That’s why the Dr. A’s Habits of Health, my bestselling book, has been successful.
In the Habits of Health, I teach readers how to change their overall outlook and lifestyle, which in turn makes it possible for them to achieve optimal health. Thousands of people have used the Habits of Health to beat the odds, and I have made it my personal mission to help thousands more.
As part of this mission, I developed an email challenge. This challenge, broken into three 30-day sections, prompts you every day with lessons and exercises to steer you toward health. If you have time to check email, you have time to get healthy, so no more excuses. You can take the journey to health one day at a time, making the process easy and manageable.
That said, my email challenges are tools that supplement the Habits of Health, as well as the support and input of a health coach. The email challenge can be taken independently of purchasing my book or connecting with a health coach. If you need help in finding a health coach please contact me and I’ll make sure we put you in touch with someone who can help. No matter how you get started, the point is to get started.
