Boyd, a recovering Attorney, turned to weight loss research 20 years ago when he lost his mother to the lifelong effects of obesity. He has spent the ensuing years searching the science, and formulating a comprehensive metabolic map of the body — the only complete map of its kind. The map reveals the causes and effects of obesity and related chronic lifestyle diseases. It shows the only proven pathways to preventing and losing excess weight. From that unique foundation, he and his team created a weight loss education program that has helped tens of thousands to lose weight and keep it off. Plus, they created innovative and fun fitness and nutrition education programs for elementary school children, proven to reduce the early bio-markers for childhood obesity. HEART PLAN is a collection of his observations over the years of the emotional impact and motivational challenges nearly everyone faces when trying to keep lost weight off permanently.

  4. Lifestyle changes are the best way to lose weight. You are more likely to stick with it instead of yoyo dieting.

  5. My husband and both would like to shed some unwanted pounds. This sounds like a good plan.

  6. It really is important to have a strategy in place for long term success; it’s too easy to crash diet and then bounce back and forth.

  7. Great that’s it free. Lifestyle changes and the watching what you eat are important. When I was around 22 , I ate horrible. Pizza, hot pockets, soda, chips, fast food, etc. I decided to cut out soda right away and.lost some weight. I then stopped eating fast food, processed food and felt better and lost weight. Now I only drink water, eat lots of veggies, fruit, beans.

  16. Great post! I’ve been a fatty my whole life, and I can say from experience that the wrong diet can definitely do more harm than good. I’ve managed to get 20 pounds off and keep it off by not dieting at all. I just try to limit the amount of crap that I eat.

  17. Thats really great thats its free, we need more things like this for sure!

  25. I can only be successful with Weight loss if it can fit into my current lifestyle. Otherwise I am setting myself up for failure.

  31. Ann Bacciaglia says
