Dr. Lou Aronne's "Getting Healthy" PLAN FOR PERMANENT WEIGHT CONTROL

Lose weight safely, realistically, and permanently—without gimmicks, dietary supplements, or deprivation—with Dr. Aronne's easy-to-follow diet and exercise plans, and life-changing advice. Your reward will be a firmer body and a longer, more physically vital life.

Drawing on the latest genetic research and on the groundbreaking "set point" study conducted at Rockefeller University, Dr. Louis J. Aronne, a leading researcher and successful weight-control practitioner, explains why and how the body loses and gains weight. With his proven "Getting Healthy" plan, you'll learn how to determine your healthiest possible weight based on your personal lifestyle, heredity, and individual metabolism. You'll discover the exact number of calories you need to lose weight, look great, feel more energetic, and be at the peak of health.

Weigh Less, Live Longer provides complete menu plans for healthful, well-balanced, and appetizing meals, along with a satisfying selection of low-calorie snacks so you never feel starved. Easy-to -follow recipes range from a delicious turkey chili to tempting cottage fries and chocolate shakes. Determine whether a low-fat, high-carbohydrate menu works best for you, or if a lower- glycemic menu, with emphasis on fibrous vegetables and legumes, will be your body's best weapon against cravings that could be your downfall. Whichever you select, the interchangeable menu plans and recipes will help you rediscover the fun of eating while developing smart food habits.

Completing the program are a series of calorie- and fat-burning exercises with illustrations, designed to help you look and feel your best. You'll also find useful tips on what to do when eating out, attending those diet-challenging business and social gatherings, and shopping for food. By focusing on health and well-being—not merely losing unwanted pounds—Dr. Aronne's "Getting Healthy" plan makes your dream of permanent weight control a lifelong, life-saving reality.

In addition to co-hosting the popular Getting Healthy program on the TV Food Network, Dr. Aronne has made numerous guest appearances on such programs as Today, Good Morning America, 48 Hours, and The Late Show with David Letterman. He lives with his wife and children in New York City .

A leading authority's comprehensive plan for weighing less for life, this book includes easy-to-follow diet and exercise plans and complete menus for healthful, well-balanced meals plus low calorie snacks.
