diet-success-strategiesDiet Success Strategies, by Alan Aronoff says that diets usually don’t work because most people don’t stay on them long enough to get results.

When you rely solely on self-discipline to change your eating habits it is likely that it will be difficult to be successful over the long term.

David Aronoff suggests a new approach, which involves the creation of a personal Diet Management System.

The system is based on monthly, weekly, daily and hourly strategies to help you meet your health and weight loss goals.

Diet Success Strategies Basics

This book does not contain information on what to eat, recipes or weight loss secrets. Instead it provides you with diet success strategies that can help you stay on a diet.

The Diet Management System

You are provided with 67 monthly, weekly, daily, and hourly strategies to help you achieve your short and long-term goals.

Each strategy is can assist you when making decisions about food and lifestyle. They cover a range of factors such as diet, exercise, relationships, stress management, and mental attitude.

An example of a monthly strategy might involve balancing your relationships with friends and family. Weekly strategies can include researching your food choices and creating your food list. A daily strategy might be to plan exactly what you are going to eat that day.

When you practice these simple strategies regularly you will make better choices more frequently. This leads to the creation of new eating and lifestyle habits that promote weight loss and better health.
