Self Steps: Many diets begin by asking you to identify your goals, such as the number of pounds you want to lose. But Tosca Reno's strategy is different: before you even begin to think about food, she wants you to focus on what's behind your desire to lose weight. No diet will ever be successful if you don't reclaim that place inside you, a place that is so often wrapped in pain, discomfort, shame, and fear. With each self step, you will come closer to overcoming the internal barriers that keep you from achieving your health and weight loss goals. Remove Your Hidden Foods: Call them comfort foods, guilty pleasures, or daily treats--everyone has at least one hidden food that is likely sabotaging their weight loss efforts. It could be chocolate, peanut butter, cheese, or even soda! Tosca Reno will show you how to identify what your hidden food is (and there may be more than one), understand why it or they are at the root of your weight problem, and help you to remove the problematic foods easily without feeling deprived. The Simple Diet does not require sacrifices; instead, you will learn how to create a better balance in your life, find other foods that are just as satisfying and delicious, and disentangle yourself from the eating habits that are sabotaging your life. Move a Little: Exercise and fitness are not only about going to the gym or spending hours a day sweating up a storm. In this part of the program, you will learn how to incorporate little movements into your everyday life that will help boost your metabolism and strengthen your body. Sitting in a chair all day? Have to clean up around the house? Tosca Reno offers suggestions for over 50 little movements that you can integrate into your everyday routine that will allow you to strengthen, tone, and improve your overall body health . . . without changing a single thing about your day.
