Overview

From one of today's most respected diet and nutrition experts, a 14–day weight loss plan designed to help you change your shape for life, using a breakthrough personalised protein prescription that has worked for thousands of his patients.

The L.A. Shape Diet shows you how to analyse your body shape, personal protein needs, and metabolism and not only lose weight, but also to change your body shape.

Dr Heber maintains that everyone is born with a particular shape – and that this shape makes a huge difference in how you should approach weight loss. He teaches the difference between the shape you can change and the shape you can't, and helps you find the personal protein prescription to best achieve your goals. You can jump–start your plan with the Empowering Shake – the best way to make sure you meet your protein needs and control hunger – and then you'll build your own ideal diet, including vegetables and whole grains.

In a world of dietary fads and 'one–size–fits– all' pseudo–miracle diets, The L.A. Shape Diet is the most effective, easy–to–follow, scientifically sound dietary plan you'll find.

    Using the LA Shape Diet and Shapeworks has broken my plateau!

    Adding the 'L.A. Shape Diet' and Shapeworks to my existing program, has helped me lose 6 pounds and 4 inches in less than 2 weeks!! I had been on a plateau for over a year. I was stuck at a weight that was just above my goals. The programs Dr. Heber gives you and the wonderful meal planning ideas have totally re-Shaped me! It is awesome to be in such good company with Dr. Heber.

    Not only lose weight, but reshape your body

    Dr. Heber has taken all the research, scientific knowledge and practical experience treating overweight patients at the UCLA Center for Human Nutrition and UCLA Risk Factor Obesity Clinic and presented it in the most sensible way. He focuses on a persons shape as well as their weight to determine the best way for them to lose excess fat and increase lean muscle. Dr. Heber states that not all Fat cells are equal. Upper body fat is very different from lower body fat. Dr Heber and his staff have found that protein, primarily the healthiest Soy protein, is the key. Dr. Heber gives us an easy way to determine how much protein a person needs and then how to make sure they are getting it everyday. Combine that with plenty of healthy fruits and vegetables and a limited amount of whole grain foods and you will have perfectly balanced nutrition. Dr. Heber goes beyond weight loss and gives us a plan that will let people reach their optimum state of health and maintain it for the rest of their lives. This is not just a diet book. It is a manual on how to keep the weight off for good. Finally, I was able to get off the 'yo-yo diet rollercoaster'. Thank you Dr. Heber.

    A must read for anyone wanting permanent weight loss!!!

    This book is the first I have read that provides a long term approach to 'Weight Management.' It is not a quicky diet, fad, or one time weight loss program. It provides life changing ideas and habits that will enure a permanent weight management if followed and applied. This book is back by research, science and clinical testing. This book surpasses all other weight loss books out there.

    At last - a diet that makes sense!

    When the foremost nutritionist in the world writes a book on nutrition and dieting, you know it is going to be good. Yet his style is very approachable. After all the 'fad' diets, which all seem to contradict each other, it's nice to read something at last which simply makes sense!

    I lost 8 pounds in one week!

    I have been already losing weight on a diet high in protein and after reading The L.A. Shape Diet I found out how much protein I really should be taking daily. I've lost 8 pounds on the Shape Diet in ONE week and a whole dress size! This is a very easy to read book and easy to use weight loss plan. Good Nutrition just makes sense as the best way to lose and maintain weight loss.
