|About the Book|
In How We Did It, Nancy Kennedy tells the stories of those who have tried just about every weight-loss program available, facing frustration but ultimately succeeding. These stories will inspire, inform, and encourage you to find the plan that will work for you, whether a name brand plan or one of your own making.Weight loss plans are too often presented as one-size-fits-all propositions. How We Did It compares the wide gamut of weight loss programs--South Beach, the Zone, Atkins, Thin Within, First Place, Weight Watchers and many more--and demonstrates how weight loss seekers have used, modified and combined plans to create their own recipe for success. This book is a resource for both inspiration and information. Not only does it connect with the millions of adults struggling with unwanted weight, it includes chapters on such hot topics as childhood obesity and bariatric surgery.In these uplifting stories of successful weight loss seekers, you will read about others who may have repeatedly tried and failed to lose weight and keep it off, but who finally found what suited their lifestyle, personality, spirituality, and their internal values--in other words, what finally worked for them!
