Read an Excerpt

Stephanie
• 39 year old divorced mother of three (15, 10, and 9)
• Lost 50+ lbs using the "Live It" phase (only)
• Has kept it off for 8 years
• Weight loss led to a career as a yoga instructor. She now feels very passionate about reaching out to others to encourage wellness through yoga.
• Now works at Mayo Clinic in the employee wellness center teaching yoga
• Recent photo of her in the yoga studio:

Lynn
• 45 year old married with two kids (ages 18 and 22)
• Medical secretary in gynecological surgery at Mayo Clinic
• Lost a total of 62 lbs using the "Lose It" program. Lost 14.8 lbs in the first two weeks, and then continued the same program. Took 8 months to lose 62 lbs and has been maintaining for several months since.
• Still remembers Dr. Hensrud saying "All you need to start this program is a pair of tennis shoes" and has found that to be very true. Liked how it didn't require counting calories or points, eating special things, etc . . .
• Previously, hadn't been very active and hadn't paid much attention to nutrition. Now walks 45-60 min several times per week, and has maintained most of the habits to add and break.
• Didn't think that she would be able to find a "before" picture because she had always avoided photos.

Lawrence (Larry)
• 43 year old married father of three teenagers.
• Autopsy technician at Mayo Clinic
• Lost a total of 30 lbs using the "Lose It" program (his goal was to lose 25). Lost around 18 lbs at the end of the two week program.
• Said it was easy to learn, wasn't hard to follow.
• Family joined him and supported him. He followed most of the habits, modified some to fit hisschedule/lifestyle.

Jennifer and Don
• Husband and wife team who decided to do the "Lose It" program together.
• Don, 39, and Jennifer, 36, have two kids (17 and 19).
• Jennifer is a quality management coordinator for Mayo Medical Labs.
• Jennifer couldn't remember exactly how much she lost in the first two weeks, but thought it was in the teens (13-19 lbs).
• She and her husband continued with the program and maintained most of the habits. Found it easy to learn and follow, and liked the fact that if they slipped once in awhile, it was very easy to get back on track.
• Jennifer lost a total of about 50 lbs and has been maintaining that for about 6 monhts. Don lost about 35 lbs total and has also been maintaining that.

Joni
• Late 40s married mother of two grown children. Now an empty nester.
• Blood and marrow transplant data coordinator at Mayo Clinic.
• Lost a total of 14 lbs using the "Lose It" program and has maintained it for over a year.

This book is helpful in keeping a complete tract of foods that I eat throughout the day. Snacking is a habit that I'm trying to break. Keeping a journal of my eating habits is helping me see when, how much, and what I eat. I had no idea how many calories and fat grams I was consuming until I started using this Diet journal. After two weeks of using this tool, I have lost 2 lbs. My goal is to lose one pound per week, which is reasonable and obtainable.

The journal is a great addition to the Mayo Clinic Diet Book. It is already formatted in an easy to use way to record everything throughout the day from meals to activities. There are also suggestions as to how to make the necessary changes to your life style so that you can take off the extra weight and keep it off. Great purchase.
