Break Through Your Set Point: How to Finally Lose the Weight You Want and Keep It Off by George Blackburn and Julie Corliss.
Who should read Break Through Your Set Point? Anyone who is trying to figure out how to lose weight and those who are mystified by what to eat on a diet. In short, Break Through Your Set Point is for people who either need to lose weight now, or for those who have tried to lose weight without much success. The book is not just a collection of typical weight-loss tips. It is a practical guide that explains how to lose weight in real world, and how to overcome a weight loss plateau.
How does Break Through Your Set Point work? “Reset” your weight by losing 10 percent, holding steady for six months to create a new norm, then starting to lose again. If you want to lose weight quickly, this book is not for you. It is not about a quick weight loss, which often follows by a disappointment when a few months down the road you regain the weight you have lost. It is about having realistic expectations and losing weight at a moderate but sustainable rate.
Best weight-loss tip “Embrace your plateau.” Do not get discouraged when weight loss stalls. A weight-loss plateau is not a setback, it is the time your body needs to adjust and get accustomed to your new eating habits.
Another weight-loss tip For long-term success, stack raw vegetables on every sandwich.
