We often hear that a third of Americans are obese—not just a few pounds overweight but heavy enough to put their health at risk. However, one state—Colorado—has bucked the trend. It’s the leanest state in the nation, but it’s not because of something in the air or the water. It’s the perfect interplay among diet, activity, and environment. State of Slim
breaks down the elements of this healthy lifestyle and step-by-step explains how to recreate it anywhere.
Weight loss and weight maintenance are different processes; it’s best to tackle them separately. If during the weight loss phase nothing is done to correct a faulty metabolism, weight regain is inevitable. State of Slim features a 7-week plan that rebuilds metabolism and leads to quick weight loss. This is followed by another 7-week plan that shows readers how to match their diet to their revamped metabolism to achieve long-term leanness. With a new, flexible metabolism, readers will be able to enjoy food without constantly worrying about their weight. Plus, the authors show readers how to make their home and relationships more weight-loss friendly. They also explain that changes in diet and activity level can actually change the brain and attitude. That change feeds the new healthy lifestyle, supplying readers with the motivation and the energy to stay fitter, stronger, and leaner for life.
