The Flex Diet – It Bends, So You Don't Break.


Getting heart healthy can be flexible.

Most diet books present you with a single, inflexible program.  You’re either forced to stay on it forever or face another dieting failure. So rather than teach you just one way to lose ten or twenty or even fifty pounds, The Flex Diet teaches 200 different evidence-based Solutions that will help you become healthier – and you can follow as many as you like.

Where do you want to start?

The Flex Diet is divided into three parts:

* Today will get you started with two weeks of time-tested and easy-to-adopt strategies that should help you lose at least five pounds while getting you to be more mindful of the choices you make.  From starting a food diary to hitting the scales, the Today Solutions are common sense – and we know that common sense works.

* Every Day is the next three-week block of Solutions that introduces optional meal plans for breakfast, lunch, and dinner as well as ideas to eat, drink, exercise, act, and live more healthfully.  The concept of Flex Solutions is introduced – letting you design your own approach that you will be able to stick with.

* Your Way offers you the tools needed for a lifetime of success and healthy living by giving you the opportunity to further personalize your plan with one hundred more creative and evidence-based Solutions.

You choose, you lose.

“Here is a book from a doctor one can trust.  I had yet to find a book on diet, written by an MD who was still in the medical trenches, that made any sense whatsoever. Until now. This book is needed.  This book is fun, smart, scientifically sound, yet practical and achievable.  I recommend it wholeheartedly.”
