The Mayo Clinic Diet, a different approach to weight loss

Written By Betty van der Mark on Thursday, January 14, 2010 | 3:37 AM

The Mayo Clinic Diet is a program that helps you make simple, healthy, pleasurable changes that result in a weight you can maintain for the rest of your life. The Mayo Clinic Diet is a habit-based approach. With The Mayo Clinic Diet, you work to reshape your lifestyle by breaking unhealthy old habits that sabotage your weight and adopting healthy new habits that will lead you down a path toward better health.
The Mayo Clinic Diet has two phases:
Phase 1: This two-week phase is designed to help you begin seeing results right away, with weight loss of 6 to 10 pounds (2.7 to 4.5 kg). Unlike fad diets that promise rapid weight loss, The Mayo Clinic Diet approach is safe and healthy while building momentum and enthusiasm. It's based on changing habits for a lifetime so that the weight you lose doesn't come back, as it probably has in the past on fad diets.
Phase 2: Live It! This second phase builds on Lose It! and is designed to help you continue to lose weight at a rate of 1 to 2 pounds (0.5 to 1 kg) a week until you reach your weight goal. This phase also helps you maintain your weight goal permanently by continuing and tweaking lifelong healthy habits.
