The Flex Diet Book Purchase on Amazon

I get frustrated when I see people spend tons of money for “medical weight loss programs” when there are so many valuable programs available on the cheap.  One program I mention in The Flex Diet is Take Off Pounds Sensibly (TOPS) – doesn’t quite roll off the tongue, but it’s a well-vetted program that combines weekly meetings and weigh-ins – both are great evidence-based Solutions to help people lose weight.  A recent study involving over 42,000 individuals confirms this strategy works.  The study found that members of TOPS who stayed in the program for three years lost the most weight – about 5-7% of their body weight, and they kept it off.  That’s at an investment of $90 a year – which is nothing compared to a few copays for weight loss medication, extra doctors’ visits for high blood pressure and diabetes, not to mention paying a tailor to have your pants let out.  If $90 is out of your price range, start with the TOPS Solutions that work:  weigh yourself every day, and make yourself accountable to others on a regular basis.
