LOS ANGELES, March 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Together with independent book publisher Skyhorse Publishing, Inc., celebrity nutritionist and mindfulness educator Christine Lusita will release a controversial new weight loss book, The Right Fit Formula: Your Personality + Fave Foods + Lifestyle = The Only Weight Loss Plan for You, on March 20, 2018.
Considered the ultimate match.com for weight loss, The Right Fit Formula lands just one month after the Journal of the American Medical Association published a study on February 20 that underscores the validity of Lusita's unique approach. The study from Stanford's Prevention Research Center found that successful weight loss is less about calorie counting, genetic makeup, or metabolic particulars, and more about a mindful approach to food and weight-loss regimens. Says lead author Christopher D. Gardner, a nutrition and obesity researcher, "For dieters [who lost the most weight], low carbs or low fat appeared to take a back seat in importance to becoming more mindful, happy and careful about what they ate."
Unlike most weight-loss books, The Right Fit Formula has no calorie counts, no must-eat foods or must-do exercises. Instead, it combines the best of personality profiling and mindfulness training with behavioral science, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), which focuses on dieters' values, behaviors and decision-making. The result: an authentic approach to a universal struggle.
In this highly relatable and easy-to-follow guide, you meet "just your type." The program matches your personality, favorite foods, and lifestyle to create a 100% customized program for your individual success. Lusita's book, the first of its kind, includes personality-driven workouts, menus, recipes, meditations and life management tools. No more bad dates with diets.
"Diets don't succeed—people do!" That's the philosophy that guides the work of this cutting-edge health expert and her unique feel-good program. This revolutionary new weight-loss book by the "diet matchmaker" is an on-target wake-up call for today's calorie-obsessed world.
