SELF Transformation starts with you -- and this first section focuses on the psychological and emotional aspects of being overweight. Drawing on her own experience with weight problems, Jillian offers invaluable practical advice on how to identify the attitudes and behaviors that may have sabotaged your weight-loss efforts in the past and, most important, how to train your mind and alter your habits so that you are committing all your resources to true change.
SCIENCE To find the diet plan that's best for you, you have to learn the basics of nutrition and how your body works. Part of the reason so many fad diets are ineffective is that they are generically designed and do not meet your different individual needs. With a simple quiz, you can determine what type of metabolism you have, and create a unique diet that works best for you.
