Just in time for New Year's resolutions, experts from the Mayo Clinic present a well-rounded plan for dieting right. Editor-in-chief Donald Hensrud, chair of the Mayo Clinic's Preventive and Occupational Medicine division, packs this straightforward guide with useful tips, concise lists, charts, and color photos. Eschewing fads and quick fixes, the diet sticks to an involved, long-term, but indisputable plan for those willing to make significant lifestyle changes. Part one, Lose It, includes a two-week intro program designed to result in six to 10 pounds of weight loss, provided readers take up five new habits, including eating breakfast and upping their intake of whole grains, while quitting five old habits, like eating in front of the TV. Part two, Live It, modifies those techniques to sustain one to two pounds of weight loss a week. Part three helps readers with immediate and long-term challenges like behavior modification and stress, as well as meal planning and eating out. Efficiently organized with convenient reference points, this is a worthy guide for any determined dieter. (Jan.)

I wanted a healthful, long-term plan, but I also needed to be bikini-readyin just six weeks. I gravitated to The Mayo Clinic Diet, the trusted hospital's first-ever weight-loss book, because it isn't a rigid eat-this-not-that meal plan, but more of a food-pyramid inspired puzzle.
