Quitting smoking is difficult, especially if you have spent years, even decades of your life doing it. Hope’s book on quitting smoking in less than 14 days began like so many other life changing events. While on a field trip with a group of children she was supposed to help educate, Hope was made blatantly aware that her smoking was getting out of hand by the blunt observations of the same children she was there to educate.

What follows is Hope’s story of how that single event opened her eyes to the negative aspect smoking was having in her life which put her on the road to quitting that bad habit for good. Five years later and she is still smoke free. Read along and find out how you too can quit smoking and enhance your life.

As a family practice physician, I have dedicated my life to teaching others how to improve their health and wellness. Simply Weight Loss is designed to give you the information you need to be successful without starving yourself or being exhausted. It is indeed simple to understand and simple to follow.

Obesity is at epidemic proportions, and the health consequences of being overweight are horrendous. We are literally killing ourselves with food. It is important that people understand how their body is responding to food in order to fully understand how to go about changing their eating habits; then, they can reduce the potential adverse effects of obesity.

This book is a natural outpouring of the way I teach weight loss in my office. I have found that the best way to effectively change your habits is to keep things simple. If you are trying to make changes that seem complicated and meaningless, you are setting yourself up for failure.

No matter how scientifically correct a weight loss program is, if it is difficult to follow, then you will fail. I have found that there are 3 essential elements to successful weight loss. First, it must be simple to follow without complicated meal plans and stringent schedules. Secondly, it must be structured so that you are not hungry. This requires eating a balance of healthy foods. Finally, you must not feel tired and run down on your program. This is one of the most common complaints of the low carb programs.

I know that you will find the material presented in Simply Weight Loss to be easy to understand and easy to follow. Whether you are trying to lose an extra 10 pounds to look good at an upcoming event or whether you are needing to lose 50 to 100 pounds to save your life, this is the program for you.
