& Mark Dedomenico, M.D.

From the nutrition instructor at the world-renowned Culinary Institute of America and the acclaimed Medical Director of 20/20 Lifestyles,
a revolutionary new program that will forever change the way dieters approach and successfully achieve lasting weight loss.

Two out of three people in the U.S. are looking for the diet that will shed those extra unwanted pounds. Unfortunately, there are many ready to capitalize on this. From authors of fad diets promising speedy weight loss tips to food manufacturers peddling unhealthy fare under the guise of “low fat,” “light,” and “sugar-free” options, the market is saturated with an overwhelming amount of products offering false hope, conflicting messages, and broken promises. More than 90% of diets fail. Unsuccessful dieting leads to emotional and physical self defeating events as well as a loss of confidence in ones self and in the diets.

But now there is a genuine game-changer, a program offering a permanent solution to lower weight, higher self-esteem, and overall better health. InThe Love Diet(HarperOne; Hardcover; $25.99; May 2016), Connie Guttersen, theNew York Timesbestselling author ofThe Sonoma Dietand the acclaimed medical director of 20/20 Lifestyles, offers a personalized plan that is proven to completely transform the way we look and feel. According to Guttersen—who developed the diet along with pioneering cardiovascular surgeon Mark Dedomenico—the key to losing weight isn’t about HDL and LDL levels or even DNA makeup. Instead, it is crucial to start with LOVE: loving yourself, loving your body, loving your overall health.

For far too long, sabotaging emotional relationships with food and one’s own destructive health habits have inevitably lead to the perfect storm: poor nutrition, unwanted weight, and dangerously low self-esteem. ButThe Love Dietmaintains that learning to recognize one’s own worth is the first and most important step to finding the waistline—and good health—we all deserve.

Drawing on revelatory research, the latest science on nutrition and weight loss, and thousands of their patients’ accounts, inThe Love DietDr. Guttersen and Dr. Dedomenico have developed an accessible, practical plan that combines good nutrition with positive emotional reinforcement. With sound nutritional advice, powerful personal affirmations, easy-to-follow recipes, and comprehensive meal and exercise plans, it offers the tips and tools to help readers achieve sustained weight loss, including:

  • A guide to finding and establishing the proper support system to embark on a healthy lifestyle change
  • The essential foods to eliminate from your diet—and those to embrace
  • The key to understanding the negative impact of certain foods
  • Five core concepts that aid better understanding of nutrition, and deepen your commitment to permanent weight loss
  • Affirmations to instill confidence as you embark upon the program
  • A straightforward and scientifically-based seven stage plan to set up a successful journey to lower weight and improved health
  • Concise exercise plans, from low- to high-levels of fitness
  • A guide to navigating and overcoming lapses in your health regimen
  • Extensive guidelines on recommended serving and portion sizes
  • An illustrated method of compartmentalizing food on your plate—in and out of the home—called the “Slim Plate”
  • Delicious and satisfying recipes, from rubs and marinades to salads and proteins
