We’re tired of seeing people have wonderful success in losing weight, only to see them regain it all within a few months. We’re tired of seeing people sentenced to a life of food restriction and deprivation. As scientists and researchers, we haven’t just theorized about the right weight-loss strategies, we’ve tested them in our clinic to see if they really work—and they do.”

Leading Health And Wellness Experts Explain How To Reignite And Rebuild The Body’s Fat Burning Engine – The Colorado Way
“Why are Americans overweight?” is a question that is asked across the nation. While there are many diets that claim to help people lose 15 pounds in 15 days, they rarely help dieters keep the pounds off. With the Colorado Diet, residents from every state in the nation can achieve weight-loss success and develop a “Mile-High Metabolism” that keeps weight off. In their new book STATE OF SLIM: Fix Your Metabolism And Drop 20 Pounds In 8 Weeks On the Colorado Diet, weight-loss experts from the Anschutz Health and Wellness Center at the University of Colorado – James O. Hill, PhD and Holly Wyatt, MD – share their revolutionary plan to help people everywhere live like lean Coloradans, and keep the weight off for good.
Wyatt and Hill expose the secrets of the Colorado mindset – Find Motivation, Expect Success, Make Healthy Decisions, Create a Supportive Environment – and then launch readers into the three concise phases that will lead them to a lean body and to find the energy they’ve been missing:
- Reignite and Rebuild – Readers will drop 20 pounds in just 8 weeks as they discover how to eat and move so that they are working with, rather than against, their body’s metabolism
- Reinforce – Readers will continue to lose weight and solidify their new lifestyle. Along the way, they will learn how to make changes in their environment and their mind-set so they support, rather than thwart, success.
Over the course of 16 weeks, this book can help readers learn how to lose weight and maintain weight loss by instilling a positive mindset, good eating habits, and exercise routines that the reader can work at his or her own pace. Hill and Wyatt cover everything including learning how to squeeze in some form of exercise – even if the reader’s schedule is jam-packed, conquering cravings, controlling portion intake, boosting willpower, and much more.
Filled with over 40 pages of recipes specifically designed for each phase in addition to tips, daily activity plans, success stories, and solutions for every excuse or stumbling block the reader may have along his or her journey, STATE OF SLIM will help anybody who is trying to lose weight and keep it off, whether they need to drop pounds or are just looking to live a healthier lifestyle.
