The Mayo Clinic Diet Book and Journal Review and Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed. The winner will be announced shortly!

Are you searching for a practical approach to losing and maintaining a healthy weight in 2010? I am excited to post this review and giveaway of the Mayo Clinic Diet book and companion journal - just in time to help with your New Year's Weight Loss Resolutions.

The Mayo Clinic Diet: Eat well. Enjoy life. Lose weight.
By the weight-loss experts at Mayo Clinic and Donald Hensrud, M.D., M.P.H. Published by Good Books; January 2010: ISBN – 978-1561486762 US $25.99; hardcover.

About the Mayo Clinic: The Mayo Clinic is the first and largest integrated, not-for-profit group practice in the world. Doctors from every medical specialty share the philosophy that the needs of the patient come first. Over 3,600 physicians and scientists and 50,000 allied staff work at Mayo clinics located in Minnesota, Florida and Arizona. Working together, the Mayo Clinic doctors treat more than 500,000 patients a year.

About Donald Hensrud, M.D: Donald Hensrud , M.D., M.P.H., is chair of the division of Preventative, Occupational and Aerospace Medicine and a consultant in the Division of Endocrinology, Metabolism and Nutrition at Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minn. A specialist in nutrition and weight management, Dr. Hensrud advises individuals on how to achieve and maintain a healthy weight. He conducts research in weight management, and he writes and lectures widely on nutrition-related topics. He helped publish two award-winning Mayo Clinic Cookbooks.

About the book: The Mayo Clinic diet is the first and only diet developed by the Mayo Clinic. The book is designed to be an easy weight loss and weight maintenance guide that cuts through all of the weight-loss clutter that consumers are exposed to on a daily basis.

The book consists of two easy-to-follow phases – “Lose It” and “Live It”. The Mayo Clinic Diet requires simple lifestyle adjustments and provides a common-sense approach to shedding pounds and keeping them off. The book consists of meal plans, tips for overcoming challenges, help in the start of an exercise plan and encouragement for success. The Mayo Clinic Diet gives dieters the tools they need to lose weight and keep it off.

About The Mayo Clinic Diet Journal: The Mayo Clinic Diet Journal is the essential companion to the Mayo Clinic Diet. The journal includes a quick-start “Lose It” section to monitor habits and a “Live It” section to record daily eating and exercise, making it possible for dieters to keep track of their goals and succeed with weight loss.

The Review: I understand that there is no quick fix, fad diet that will take the weight of and keep it off. Eating the right (whole) foods in the right (small) portions and exercising are the keys to weight loss, maintenance and good health. Since I get all that, I can appreciate the Mayo Clinic Diet for several reasons.

It is not another fad diet. The program outlines simple, and healthy changes that will result in weight loss.

It is based on the research of doctors who have worked with thousands of patients. The doctors have boiled down their research into the five simple habits to help you take off the extra weight and five habits to break so that you can keep it from coming back.

The diet is broken down into two simple phases – Lose it and Live It. In the two week Losing It phase, add five healthy habits like eating a healthy breakfast, healthy fats and adding exercise. Break five habits like no TV while eating, and no sugar (only what is naturally found in fruit). In Phase 2, “Live It” (the long-term plan) you continue to lose 1 to 2 pounds a week until you reach your goal. Then you learn how to maintain your healthy weight for life.

The Mayo Clinic Diet book has all the necessary tools, is simple to skim through, and is well organized. The book includes meal planners, recipes and tips on overcoming challenges, staying motivated, adapting recipes and sticking to the diet when eating out.

The book comes with a companion journal. To help monitor your progress, the companion journal has over 200 pages, consisting of a weight record to plot your weight and the habit tracker to record your foods eaten and your exercise. The easy-to-use diet journal allows you follow your progress during both phases of the program.

The proceeds from the book help support the Mayo Clinic. The Mayo Clinic is a not-for-profit group practice. When you purchase Mayo Clinic books, you help support programs, including medical education and research.

I just had my baby, so I'm determined to get the weight off. I didn't get it off from the first child and I hate that I can barely play with my son without getting winded. I will get in shape!

I make an effort now to eat starches (breads, pastas, cereals, brown rice) insteaad of versions made from white flour that are whole wheat or contain more whole grain. I have found that these foods also help boost my fiber intake too.

As far as exercise, I'm pretty good with this--I walk & jog 5-6 days a week and chase around a very demanding, extremely needy (i.e., not happy unless getting attention from mom or dad 100% of the time) toddler. I was doing quite well with incorporating weight lifting exercises too, until around Halloween, since then, I've been spotty with the weights. I need to get back to it though.

I try to only eat foods that are on the food pyramid. If it's not there it's probably not good for you. I also try to walk a few times a week.

My hubby surprised me with a membership to our beautiful new parks & rec gym for Christmas. I have been trying for months to convince him I REALLY wanted one. Can't wait to get on the amazing new equipment Saturday morning! And, I recently started using whole grain pasta and low fat dairy in all dinners. Would love to win these books!!! Thanks for the chance!

P.S. I became a follower also.

I have added extra veggies into our dinners, so now I make two instead of one.

Perfect Blue Moon said...

Well I'd like to loose weight because I had my baby girl two years ago and still have my belly pooch. We're looking at having another one sometime soon and I'd really like for my body to fully recoporate before that happens. I'm thinking this way I don't gain as much, nor keep more weight on with the second pregnancy.

I've already started meal plans and home cooking from scratch almost every night of the week and am trying to get in a half hour of exercise a day. weather permitting!

I have started adding more whole grains to my diet. Now I walk for 30 minutes each day instead of 3 times a week. I'm within 10 pounds of where I want my weight to be so I need to learn how to maintain after I reach my goal.
