Roll -up, roll up wanna know the best way to lose weight? Ah ha! Got your attention? great.

I’m sure at one point or another we’ve all struggled to find the best way to lose weight and keep it off. And sure you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to grasp the few basic principles of how to lose weight—Its pretty simple, consume fewer calories than you expend. Yet if it is really so easy, obesity would not be the nation’s number-one lifestyle-related health concern. So why are extra pounds so difficult to shed and keep off?

Dr David Freedman shows how the concepts of behavioral analysis, ( roughly translated psychologists are the ideal professionals to support you in reaching your goal),…. underlie most successful programs for losing weight.

Take the Scientific American poll to see how your weight-loss attempts compare with other survey-takers. At the end, you will learn about four general rules of thumb that researchers believe increase the chances of losing weight and keeping it off.

As a footnote those who follow my regular posts will remember my own New Years Resolution…… Shrinkgurl wants to shrink her waistline.So far I have lost 1 inch and 6 pounds. Surrounded by psychologists I am an ideal example of someone who has ample behavioural support!
