The Miracle Diet: Lose Weight, Gain Health... 10 Diet Skills
“The reason people fail to lose weight long term isn’t because they lack a good diet plan, but because they don’t have the success skills to carry that plan through. Most diet books do a great job of telling you what to eat and how much of it to eat, but they fail to prepare you for dealing with the internal resistance diets create, the old memories and past failures, the procrastinations and excuses… your inner enemies. And they also fail to prepare you for the external resistance, the disagreement and negative input that will start coming your way as soon as you proclaim you’re on a diet… your unexpected outer enemies,” says Collins.
When Susan met Rabbi Celso Cukierkorn in, of all places, a hot sweaty yoga class, little did she know that the 10 Success Skills she has been teaching in top corporations would find a new focus... weight loss! The Miracle Diet by Collins and Cukierkorn (Oct 2012) offers a different approach to dieting. Instead of presenting more food plans and menus, this book teaches you the 10 Diet Skills you need to lose weight… not just for 4 to 6 weeks… but for the rest of your life. In their new book The Miracle Diet: Lose Weight and Gain Health... 10 Diet Skills Susan's techniques which have been so profoundly effective in business are proving to be even more effective at achieving results in health!
The Miracle Diet works in combinatioin with whichever diet you choose by providing a broad understanding of how foods work in your body... including everything from salt, to sugar, to wheat, to thermogenics, to exercise, to school lunches and even blood types. It's the foundation book you and your children need for a healthy, fulfilling life!
Rabbi Celso Cukierkorn, who speaks to audiences around the world, finally managed to lose 100 pounds and keep it off... despite being constantly offered food wherever he goes. But when he sat down to share his experience, he realized losing weight was far more than reducing calories and increasing exercise. Why had he succeeded when, according to the BBC, 99% of dieters fail to maintain their weight loss for two years? He teamed up with Susan Ford Collins to figure that out and share it.
This diet book is different. No new food plans, no calorie counts or recipes. The Miracle Diet gives you what other diet books fail to give you... the 10 Diet Skills you will need to know and use to lose weight not just for 4 to 6 weeks but for the rest of your life.
Plus... must-know information about what our bodies need and why, what's in our food, what manufacturers add and subtract that is affecting our health and our children's health and weight? How lack of sleep puts weight on you. Why being consistent works against you with weight loss. (This is a shocker to good old consistent me!) Why there is a teenage obesity epidemic... the truth about what kids eat at school and at the movies! Pink slime in school lunches (bet you thought that was no longer an issue but it is!) The Addictive Mix that makes some take-out and restaurant foods quite literally addictive! Here's another shocker... Wheat is more likely to put weight on you than sugary sodas! We were astounded with what we discovered so we are passing it on to you!
How did Susan discover these 10 Skills?
As a researcher at the National Institutes of Health, Susan Ford Collins proposed studying healthy, contributing members of society instead of ill and dysfunctional ones. Her colleagues all laughed. But committed to finding answers, she shadowed highly successful individuals and teams for months at a time and identified 10 skills they were all using... consistently but unconsciously. And so they were unable to consciously pass them on.
