Dr. Phil’s Family, Weight Loss, And You


My whole family has always struggled with weight. I, too, am predisposed to obesity, but I’m the only person in my family who is not obese. The reason I’m a healthy weight for me and in decent shape is because I believe I deserve good health, longevity, daily activity and a positive body image. I also believe that my wife, kids and grandkids deserve to have me around for at least a few more decades. We have in life what we believe we deserve, so that’s the crux of how I’ve created a different result in my life than many of my family members. Of course it also takes work — you’ve probably heard me say that winners do things losers don’t — but first and foremost, you’ve got to believe you deserve it.

So here’s my question for you: Do you believe you deserve to slim down and live a healthy, active life? In your heart of hearts, do you think you’re worthy of real results?

The weight loss journey begins — and much of the battle is won — when you believe you deserve that end game and can see the finish line with clarity. (Hey, I’m an athlete so I guess I can’t help the sports analogies.) Can you envision what life will be like when your clothes finally fit comfortably? How will it feel when you chase after the kids in the park without getting breathless? What it will be like when you look in the mirror and actually like what you see? Are you motivated to be healthy? Take a moment right now to think about your answers, because once you’ve got what I call “20/20 foresight,” then you have a better chance of following that vision all the way to reality with the tools I’m about to give you in my new book,  The 20/20 Diet: 20 Key Foods To Help You Succeed Where Other Diets Fail.

If you’ve failed before, I’m not surprised. (There’s a reason the book title mentions that other diets fail!) Americans throw away over $60 billion a year on weight loss products, many of which are pure gimmicks or what I call “get-thin-quick diet mirages” that are too good to be true. But here’s some good news: We can actually learn from your past because the mistakes you’ve made over the years hold the clues to getting it right this time — once and for all. If you’ve been obsessing about your weight and compulsively dieting for years, it’s time to stop the insanity.

My own nephew was approaching 500 pounds when he said to me about a year ago:
“Uncle Phil, I’m dying a slow death here. I am a recluse. I have no life. I’m not living; I’m merely existing. I am a grown man, yet I have no social life, I haven’t been on a date in years, and I’m ashamed of myself every time I look in the mirror. I hide in shame and I am so lonely and discouraged that my days feel a week long. I go out late at night to get fast food and come back and eat it alone. It’s pathetic. I have to make my last stand right now or I know I will be dead in months. I can barely breathe. I am afraid, I am really afraid. I am to the point where I would rather be dead than live this way. I am ready to change this, really ready. Please help me, and I promise I will not disappoint you or myself.”

I mention my nephew not because he used the tools in my new book, (he actually went to an inpatient facility), but because he’s an example of someone who was truly ready to make a change. If you’re sick and tired of the diet roller coaster you’ve probably been on for decades, your time has come, too.

I waited over a decade since I published  The Ultimate Weight Solution to release The 20/20 Diet because only recently did research and theories emerge that I’m excited about, and that led me to come up with the 20 foods that are at the core of the diet. Tomorrow on my show, I’ll reveal the reasons other diets fail (like the fact that they leave you starving so you rebel — duh!), why this one is designed so that you’ll never be hungry. Listen, my plan takes work — if it didn’t, it would be too good to be true — but it is manageable, easy to follow, inexpensive, and entirely doable.

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. If the holiday season is your excuse to keep indulging and rationalize that now’s not the right time for you to feel your best, then clearly you’re not ready. (Though you should know my plan does allow for reasonable splurges.) If, however, you believe this is your moment in time to reach for your weight loss and overall health goals, then let’s get started. On my show tomorrow, you’ll meet several women I’m sure you can relate to as they get incredibly candid about their weight loss struggles, and I reveal parts of The 20/20 Diet that you can immediately start incorporating into your life. Plus, all week long here on  HuffingtonPost/DrPhil I’ll be sharing strategies for what you can do cognitively, behaviorally, environmentally, socially and nutritionally to create the results that you believe you deserve. You do believe it, right?

Let’s do this right, and let’s do it together.

Dr. Phil McGraw to Launch New Diet Plan, THE 20/20 DIET: TURN YOUR WEIGHT LOSS VISION INTO REALITY, 12/2

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ #1 New York Times bestselling author Dr. Phil McGraw reveals the secret for finally putting an end to the never-ending rollercoaster of failed weight loss attempts with his new diet plan, “The 20/20 Diet.” In the no-nonsense, get-real style that he’s known for, Dr. Phil brings much-needed truth and certainty to the struggle of losing weight. Scheduled for release on December 2, 2014 exclusively onwww.TheBookNook.com,and in full distribution on January 6, 2015,the book not only programs readers for success by helping them take control of their eating and exercise habits, it also harnesses the power of emerging scientific theories and research indicating that certain foods can potentially increase caloric burn and work with the body to amplify the feeling of fullness. “The 20/20 Diet” is being released a full 10 years after Dr. Phil’s initial weight management book, “The Ultimate Weight Solution,” his biggest selling book of all time, and updates 10 years of progress.

Together with his proven strategies for impulse and habit control, Dr. Phil believes this new weight loss plan can turn the tide for millions of people by waking them up to misleading diet gimmicks and helping them lose weight in a healthy way that includes adopting a new mindset and lifestyle. He also debunks pervasive weight loss myths about such important but widely misunderstood concepts as willpower and shows the reader how this type of safe weight loss can ultimately lead to a return to overall health.

“The 20/20 Diet” inspires readers to create a perfect, 20/20 vision of what their lives and bodies will look like when they finally lose weight, and then empowers them with tools to achieve their goals. By conducting a detailed national survey, Dr. Phil identified the seven most prevalent and recurring reasons people rebel against their diets and repeatedly fail at weight loss, which he refers to as The Top Seven Ugly Truths about Dieting. This insight allows the reader to reverse engineer their own successful weight loss by finally understanding the reasons they’ve failed in the past.

Since the release of his blockbuster #1 New York Times bestselling book, “The Ultimate Weight Solution” (Free Press; September, 2003), important new theories and research have emerged that allow Dr. Phil to be even more effective at helping readers solve these seven core problems.

“This is really exciting,” says Dr. Phil, “Now we know more than ever about how certain foods and activities affect our bodies and brains.” He and his team have harnessed the power of those discoveries and molded them into a plan that anyone can follow now and for the rest of their life without rebellion!

Readers will discover 20 key foods, called the 20/20 Foods, which theories indicate may help enhance the body’s thermogenesis (or caloric burn) and help you feel full. But that is just the beginning! This book reveals the truth about why some people haven’t been able to lose weight in the past and gives readers important cognitive, behavioral, environmental, social and nutritional tools to finally reach their weight loss goals. As Dr. Phil says, “You can choose to see your goal with 20/20 accuracy, and when you see a goal that clearly, youcanachieve it.”

The 17-Day Diet: Dr. Phil’s Family Ties to Book He Touts

Federal records show that it was first copyrighted on Nov. 12, 2010, by 17 Day Diet Inc., not by the author, Moreno. The person actually overseeing the publishing effort was Jay McGraw. “I used my contacts and experience as a four-time author and performed tasks necessary to have the book published, including hiring a group of vendors for printing, binding, distribution, and delivery, etc.,” McGraw told Newsweek in the statement provided by his lawyer. “I also assisted in the creation of the website the17daydiet.com, where the book would be sold.” On March 15, 2011, the rights to the book were sold to Simon Schuster’s Free Press. Since then, the book has spent 49 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list.
