Dr. Phil's Ultimate Weight Solution

From eDiets - The online diet, fitness, and healthy living resource

With six out of every 10 Americans overweight or obese, the time is right for Dr. Phil McGraw's ultimate weight solution.

Millions of Americans know Dr. Phil from his highly rated TV show. No time to watch TV? Well, we all have time to curl up in bed with a good book... a book like Ultimate Weight Solution: The 7 Keys to Weight Loss Freedom
Ultimate Weight Solution: The 7 Keys to Weight Loss Freedom
(Free Press).

Wondering what sets Ultimate Weight Solution apart from the stacks of dieting books at your favorite bookstore? Well, for one, its not a diet book.

Dr. Phil is quick to point out that diets don’t work. His evidence is the growing $30 billion dollar diet industry and one very sad statistic: an estimated 95 percent of all people who lose weight gain the pounds back within a few years.

Dr. Phil says effective weight loss is simply a matter of learning what works. He spells it out for you in his Shape Up! Plan.

During his 30 years of private practice and his work with several medical institutions, the renowned life strategist has dealt with thousands of overweight men and women. Some of his clients were as much as 300 pounds over their ideal weight.

“The approaches I used with them are precisely the same get-real strategies for weight management I write about in The Ultimate Weight Solution: The 7 Keys To Weight Loss Freedom," he tells eDiets in this exclusive first-look at his new book.

"What does work is changing what you eat, why you eat, where you eat, when you eat and how you eat -- and doing it all in a way that is custom designed so that it is natural for you.

“It’s about changing you from the inside out, so that you can reach your target weight and stay there. That is what separates The Ultimate Weight Solution from the rest.

Obesity is an issue that hits home for Dr. Phil. His father, Dr. Joe McGraw, suffered from heart disease and died teaching Sunday school eight years ago.

“Obesity robbed him of probably 10 to 15 precious years of his life," Dr. Phil notes. "I vowed I would write this book the day I buried my father."

In his groundbreaking guide to weight loss, Dr. Phil provides the tools to take off the weight.

Dr. Phil's "7 keys to weight loss success" touch on emotions, environment, eating habits and much, much more. What’s most impressive about this detailed approach to weight loss is the success rate. Four out of five followers lose the weight and keep it off.

Most "diets" lay claim to a five percent success rate.

According to Dr. Phil, too many people look for the easy out. But fad diets only make the situation worse. You didn’t pack on the weight overnight, so there's no reason you should take it off overnight. In order to shed those extra pounds, you have to change your lifestyle. This means requiring more of yourself physically, mentally, emotionally and behaviorally, says Dr. Phil.

Dr. Phil’s approach to healthy eating is based on a High-Response Cost, High-Yield Nutrition principle.

High-response cost foods are foods that require a great deal of work and effort to prepare and to eat. The work output required to ingest these foods is high, whereas the calorie payoff is low. Foods in this category could be anything from broccoli (you have to chew and grind it down before swallowing, dragging out the eating process) to meat (you have to defrost it, prepare it and then eat it).

High-yield foods are those that supply a lot of nutrients (in the form of carbohydrate, protein, fat, vitamins, minerals, fiber and other components) relative to the amount of calories they contain. These are foods that are generally of a more pure, basic nature. They don’t have added sugar, fat, additives and other health-defeating ingredients.

Low-response cost foods, on the other hand, are easily ingested, overly convenient and require little or no preparation. Cheeseburgers, french fries, hot dogs, burritos and chips are examples of low-response foods. Low-yield foods are high in calories and low in nutrients. They have little nutritional value when it comes to vitamins, minerals, fiber and other beneficial constituents. Low-yield foods are mostly low-response cost foods.

When combined with other lifestyle changes, this nutritional approach has helped thousands manage their weight effectively. But that's only the tip of the iceberg. eDiets, the world's leading weight loss website, now offers the Shape Up! Plan inspired by Dr. Phil McGraw!

The Shape Up! Plan is a balanced approach to weight management. Your personalized plan helps you lose weight without hunger or compromising good nutrition, which is crucial to sustaining your energy and enhancing immunity. High-fiber foods, including complex carbohydrates, whole grains, fruits and vegetables are balanced with lean protein and healthy fats.

Because all nutrients are included, you learn to eat the right portions of nutritious foods for your needs. You also avoid the cravings that often occur when you eliminate individual foods.

In addition to menus, recipes and shopping lists, you’ll receive 24/7 peer and professional support. You’ll also be able to interact with like-minded followers of Dr. Phil’s approach via bulletin boards, chat rooms and online meetings.

So what are you waiting for? Isn’t it about time you become a fan of Dr. Phil and his sensible approach to healthy living?

“My message to people is very straightforward: It is not possible for you to be overweight unless you have generated and adopted a lifestyle to support it," Dr. Phil tells eDiets. "With the exception of a small percentage of people who are medically resistant to losing weight, every single person with this problem has a lifestyle to support what he or she is.

"Just compare the lifestyle of someone who is chronically overweight with the lifestyle of someone who is fit, energetic and of normal weight. “The overweight person uses food differently. He or she lives to eat, while a person of normal weight eats to live. The overweight person begins the day as a desk potato and ends the day as a couch potato. The person of normal weight exercises on a regular, routine basis. There is a world of difference.

"For you to lose weight and keep it off permanently, you have to change your entire lifestyle."
