Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

"When you combine a change in behavior with the latest knowledge on nutrition and exercise, losing weight becomes an obtainable goal, instead of a wishful thought," promises David Heber, M.D., Ph.D., director of the UCLA Center for Human Nutrition. In The Resolution Diet, Heber blends the best knowledge from nutrition science and behavior science to design a simple, personalized approach to weight loss in a seven-step program:
  • Getting ready to make the promise
  • Eliminating the foods and thoughts that are keeping you from losing weight
  • Taking charge of your food habits through meal replacements and portion-controlled foods
  • Educating your palate
  • Living the Resolution Diet
  • Getting into the exercise and stress-reduction habit
  • Keeping the promise
The book takes you through a process that's much like attending a weight-loss clinic. At the end of each chapter, a questionnaire (called a profile) helps you examine and overcome your challenges in that area. When you finish all the profiles, you know which areas you need to concentrate on, and you have the strategies and your own weight-loss plan. (One caveat: Heber's exercise recommendations are unnecessarily repetitive--e.g., seven sets of 12 reps per exercise in week number six. Supplement the nutritional and behavioral information in this book with a good, motivating book about exercise.) --Joan Price

Dr Heber is the first doctor to ever write a book that makes sense. It's not a diet, it's a way of life and looking at the things and stress we're under in the '90's (almost 2000). He's an extremely empathetic doctor, realizes that people are people and his book shows it. If you need or would like to lose weight, this is your book. I have had weight loss surgery and read his book to keep up with my 130 pound weight loss (yes, you still have to watch what you eat after weight loss surgery)! He's a genious (and nice to boot) ... this book is easy to read, easy to understand, has working sheets after several of the chapters and is not a million pages of reading. It's a smaller book which doesn't make it boring to read. Five (yes, five) people in my office have already bought and read the book and are following his diet (hate that word) and are doing very sucessful on it. Money well spent.

This book contains much useful dieting information which is thoroughly backed up. For a life time dieter who has read dozens of books, this one has the most definitive method for projecting weight, and fat, loss. Very helpful, with many facts and incventives that I had not read elsewhere.
