There are no shortcuts when it comes to weight, and waist, loss—no twenty-pounds-in-three-days formulas, no way to get from size XXXL to size S by the end of the weekend. But you can diet smart, not hard. In YOU: Losing Weight, the doctors behind the bestselling YOU: On a Diet offer their best ninety-nine tips and strategies for getting your body into the shape and with the waist size that you’ve always wanted. Dieting can’t be hard if you are to succeed for a lifetime, and it should never feel like a sacrifice. With the right strategy, you can make the lifestyle changes that you need to lose weight and get healthy for good.
In this handy waist-loss guide, Dr. Michael Roizen and Dr. Mehmet Oz use their signature wit and wisdom to boil down the science and strategies for you. They keep their usual no-nonsense approach to explaining the human body to outline why crash dieting can’t work for the long term. More important, America’s Doctors share their favorite weight-loss super-foods recipes and provide exercise suggestions for how to get the most from any kind of workout. With food plans, shopping lists, and comprehensive advice on the science of waist loss, this pocket-size paperback is packed with everything dieters need to know about how to develop better habits that will keep pounds off for good.
In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Michael F. Roizen and Dr. Mehmet C. Oz bust the myths and stereotypes about the way we view ourselves — and how we define beauty. In these pages, you’ll find out why beauty isn’t as much about your vanity as it is about your humanity. The doctors take a scientific, informative, and entertaining look at the three levels of beauty and explain how they all work together to form a complete and authentic YOU. Those three levels of beauty are:
Looking Beautiful: Your appearance influences your self-esteem and has major health implications. Here, the docs will tell you how you can look the way you want.
Feeling Beautiful: So what if you have luscious lips or gorgeous locks if your joints creak and you have the energy of a rug? The docs will tell you how to improve your energy levels, beat back your life-altering aches and pains, and come to grips with some of life’s toughest stresses.
Being Beautiful: By improving your relationships with your loved ones as well as with others, you’ll be well on your way to finding true happiness. That’s the ultimate goal: Having all three levels of beauty working together so you can have a happy and healthy life.
You’ll start off by taking the ultra-revealing and validated YOU-Q Test to help you assess where you are on your own beauty scale and where you want to be. Take the test, see how well you do; then use the book to help you improve your score.
With their usual candor and honesty, Dr. Roizen and Dr. Oz break down the mechanics of beauty and explain how little adjustments in your routine can help you become a happier, healthier person. You will learn about the biology of beauty, take YOU Tests to determine where you are on the beauty scale, get tons of YOU Tips to help you improve your life, as well as learn the secrets of the Ultimate Beautiful Day.
From hair to toenails, Dr. Roizen and Dr. Oz go through every part of your body to explain how different foods, vitamins, creams, gels, and injections can really boost your looks. They scrutinize the beauty myths that bombard us every day and offer an unbiased perspective on which ones cause more harm than good. You will be able to revamp your beauty regimen (or start a new one from scratch). They’ll also take a close look at chronic pain, mood swings, low energy, and financial stresses. And they’ll dive into the science of building relationships, finding happiness, and using spirituality to help you define your own levels of true beauty.
