Principles of Permanent Weight Loss
The completely revised version of What’s Your Formula? will be out soon, in print and digital versions! Principles takes instructions for weight loss and maintenance to a new level, including more real life stories, examples, and shared experience so you can enjoy a more user-friendly, streamlined path toward your goals.
I begin with an introduction and my story. Then, I provide thought-provoking questions for you to write about in your personal journal. I also give many exercises to cause a shift in thinking and to break through old patterns of behaving. Then you begin the process of developing the personal food plan. You’ll receive education on nutrition labels and how to find the information that will help you attain your goals.
The approach is simple: self-examination with practical application. This comprehensive approach encourages you to look at all areas impacting why you do what you do with the food and how to change your lifestyle for permanent weight loss.
Principles gets to the root of most any problem (not just overeating) and once the self-awareness comes, the reader is left with a choice,”Do I really want to change?” If so, you are going to have to make a conscious effort to think differently. When you change your thoughts, you’ll behave in more healthy ways.
You have the power to control your thoughts. You can avoid situations where you compromise your integrity. If something unexpected happens that may throw your emotional balance off, you have a choice to respond in a healthy way, rather than a reaction based upon an entrenched pattern originating from an earlier time in your life. Deep? Yes. Effective? Definitely!
Once you get through this section of self-examination, you will begin a new way of life, and this is how the weight will stay off.
Next, you delve into the physical. You’ll explore the kitchen and pantry and purge the bad food items.
You will be asked to create several absolutes about something to eliminate, reduce or add to the diet. Now that you have these absolutes, your goal is more clear. You are ready to develop your grocery list.
Meal frequency is discussed, and you’ll begin to move away from unhealthy eating patterns and into healthier ways of eating. You’ll go through a normal day of eating 6 meals a day and design a grocery list. This example in the book is an illustration of how one might go about designing their individual grocery list. It is not a recommendation or a prescription.
The last two chapters are maintenance chapters involving pitfalls to success and tools to help you stay on track. There is repetition and also new information structured in an easy to access format. These last two chapters could be the most critical ones for your long term success.
