"After two years out from losing over 60 pounds and reaching my goal weight, achieved only with the amazing support from the Johns Hopkins Weight Management Center, it was invigorating and reaffirming to read this book. It gave me the additional support I'm needing right now in the 'maintenance phase' to continue to keep the weight off. The lessons I learned from Dr. Cheskin and his team—including the importance of regular, daily exercise—have improved my health dramatically. I can now hike over 600 feet of elevation without feeling the need to be airlifted back home. Although I still love cooking and baking, I've learned how to indulge this hobby in a more healthy way—both in terms of choice of ingredients and moderation. I can't thank Dr. Cheskin and his team enough for their support and belief in me when I came to them committed to change. I even went on a vacation to Italy while in their program and was able to not gain any weight! This book will be a great resource for others wanting to lose weight and keep it off."
