Weight Loss for Life

The Proven Plan for Success

This is not a fad diet book. This is the most comprehensive, scientifically based program to lose weight and keep it off, with practical details about diet and nutrition, movement and motivation, medications, supplements, surgery, and more.

In Weight Loss for Life, two experts from the Johns Hopkins Healthful Eating, Activity & Weight Program provide you with all of the information you need on your weight loss journey. They bring together leading experts in behavioral health, nutrition, exercise, and nursing to help you develop a plan that works best for you—and that's not focused on just restricting calories or certain foods. Anyone struggling with unwanted weight gain or obesity will find this program to be helpful, compassionate, and clear.

A central feature of the program is a Personal Plan of Action to help you set up reachable goals, plan your meals, and make time for movement. All the recommendations are customizable based on your personal health and needs. You'll enjoy the interactive features, too, with surveys throughout asking you to reflect on your own eating habits as well as barriers to success. And unlike other works on the market, Weight Loss for Life covers it all: supplements, prescription medications, med spas, and surgical options. If you struggle, it can help you get back on track. Throughout, testimonials from others who have followed the program along with hundreds of photographs and drawings will help educate and keep you motivated along your weight loss journey.

Weight Loss for Life is the guide to the science and art of achieving and maintaining a healthful weight.

Endorsements

"This evidence-based, easy-to-understand approach to weight loss provides readers with the appropriate tools they need to be successful long term in reaching their own individualized goals. More comprehensive than other weight loss books on the market, this book is a valuable resource for anyone wanting to lose weight safely and effectively."

- Virginia Quick, PhD, RDN, Rutgers University

"After two years out from losing over 60 pounds and reaching my goal weight, achieved only with the amazing support from the Johns Hopkins Weight Management Center, it was invigorating and reaffirming to read this book. It gave me the additional support I'm needing right now in the 'maintenance phase' to continue to keep the weight off. The lessons I learned from Dr. Cheskin and his team—including the importance of regular, daily exercise—have improved my health dramatically. I can now hike over 600 feet of elevation without feeling the need to be airlifted back home. Although I still love cooking and baking, I've learned how to indulge this hobby in a more healthy way—both in terms of choice of ingredients and moderation. I can't thank Dr. Cheskin and his team enough for their support and belief in me when I came to them committed to change. I even went on a vacation to Italy while in their program and was able to not gain any weight! This book will be a great resource for others wanting to lose weight and keep it off."
