30 Days to Permanent Weight Loss  One Portion at a Time  by Lisa R. Young, Ph.D., R.D.N.   on sale January 8, 2019

We’re surrounded by food portions we’ve been led to believe are normal—64-ounce

sodas, personal pizzas large enough to feed several people, and steaks and pastas that

fill an entire plate! No wonder obesity rates in America have reached an all-time high. We

eat oversize portions, gain weight, and try the latest fad diet, which only adds to our

confusion about how to lose weight.

Nutritionist and portion-size expert Dr. Lisa R. Young says the solution is simple:

Eat foods you love in reasonable portions, and you will lose your excess weight and keep it off for good.

Finally Full, Finally Slim

shows you how to permanently lose weight by

right-sizing your portions without eliminating entire food groups or staring at

an empty plate. Within these pages, Dr. Young outlines thirty days’ worth of

simple changes to help you shed pounds and provides a portion plan that

ensures you will feel satisfied. She expertly describes the relevance of diet

to health and steers you toward whole foods and away from clever

marketing claims that may be secretly sabotaging your weight-loss efforts.

You’ll learn useful strategies for how to eat out, enjoy special occasions,

and indulge in a favorite treat without tipping the scale. It includes the latest

research, accommodates current lifestyles, and can be used alone or in

combination with other diets.

And because weight loss is about more than food, Dr. Young addresses the

whole person—your mind-set, environment, habits, and life—through

research-based advice. You’ll learn how relationships, gratitude, self-

compassion, and sleep patterns, for instance, can make a difference.

Portion control outlives all fad diets because it isn’t a diet. It’s a lifestyle.
