The Mayo Clinic Diet

Eat all the food you love and lose weight

Have you ever dreamed of a diet plan that doesn't eliminate any of those delicious food items you love to eat? Well dream no more.

The world-renowned Mayo Clinic, often lauded for its open-heart surgery, research and cutting-edge treatments, has entered into the $40 billion weight-loss industry with its new book, The Mayo Clinic Diet. But unlike many diet books that call for counting points or calories, the Mayo Clinic's approach to weight-loss includes setting short-term goals and making realistic changes regarding personal eating habits and activity levels. More than half the book is about how to change behavior, and offers illustrations of portion sizes and tips for staying motivated.

My Generation sits down with one of the book’s creators and meets a few folks whose lives it has forever changed.
