"...this book, written by
two psychologists, offers sound weight-reducing advice through a behavioral
modification approach that stresses permanent weight loss through the
establishment of good eating and exercise habits . . . a well thought out diet
". . . thorough and detailed note-keeping and reinforcing
aids, graduated according to one's success in meeting previous goals."
No fads, no pills, no gimmicks--just proven methods working together to
establish a lifelong pattern of good habits. Good nutrition, regular exercise,
and appropriate eating patterns, drawn together within a behavioral psychology
framework, make this the most medically and psychologically sound approach yet
devised for losing weight and keeping it off. No need to give up favorite
foods, no need to give in after an occasional binge; as activity increases and
weight decreases, rewards will multiply.
Developed and evaluated in scientific studies conducted over a six-year
period, the Weight No Longer program has been further refined
through routine application in weight-control clinics at the State University
of New York at Stony Brook, the University of Rochester, and the University of
Mississippi Medical Center.
Using case histories to illustrate each point, Johnson and Stalonas provide
explicit instructions on exactly what to do, and when and why to do it. Each
chapter is a separate unit, with information to be read, guidelines to be
followed, and simple tasks to be completed before the next chapter is begun.
