Behavior Patterns Key to Losing Weight in 2005, Diet.com Study Finds.










SAN FRANCISCO, CA (PRWEB) December 23, 2004

A recent study of 57,000 overweight and obese diet.com members who took Dr. Kushner’s validated Diet Personality test on diet.com over a 6 month period reveals that almost half of all members fit the “Meal Skipper” eating model, that “All-or-Nothing Doers” are the top exercising pattern, and that Persistent Procrastinators are the most frequently seen coping prototype.

According to Dr. Kushner, author of the American Medical Association’s Obesity Treatment Guide for Physicians and Medical Director of http://www.Diet.com, America has a population of dieters who overlook the central role of behavior patterns and personality traits in weight loss. Understanding our unique coping mechanisms and learning how to manage them will prevent backsliding, keep pounds off long-term, and break the perpetual habit of abandoned New Year’s resolutions.

The typical Meal Skipper is a busy person who spends a lot of time taking care of others while forgetting to take a moment to nourish herself. This lack of planning fuels hunger pangs and cravings and often results in reaching for whatever food is most convenient. Meal Skippers must learn to schedule time for themselves, write it down in their weekly calendars, and understand that this is one of the most loving things they can do for their family and friends.

All or Nothing Doers often vacillate between working out excessively or skipping exercise altogether; they just can’t find an exercise routine that is sustainable over time. The best way for them to establish a reasonable and consistent regimen is to begin with short sessions and extend them incrementally over time.

Persistent Procrastinators often feel so overwhelmed with the thought of weight loss that they take the Scarlet O’Hara approach and resolve to…wait until tomorrow. They need to start with small, easy steps that gradually introduce healthier habits in a comfortable way.

Dr. Kushner knows from his 20+ years of practice that when people are unaware of their personality patterns, weight loss can be a frustrating, yo-yo experience. As only too many dieters have seen, one can lose weight initially; but it comes back in the blink of an eye when one goes back to old habits.

According to Dr. Kushner, being overweight is a multi-dimensional lifestyle problem; it’s not just about the food. By defining your Personality Type, you’ll finally be able to address the underlying issues causing you to gain weight and begin resolving them once and for all.

It’s easy to scale recipes to your personal serving sizes, and to convert recipe units between the US and metric systems. Organize recipes into your personal folder structure so you can retrieve them quickly.

Creating grocery lists is a snap. Simply select the meal, recipe, or menu that interests you, and Diet Pro 2005 will give you a list of the ingredients that you need to buy. It can even sort the list by the aisles in your grocery store.

You can begin using Diet Pro 2005 immediately. It contains illustrated online help, animated training tutorials, and a searchable help file. Diet Pro 2005 has a built-in cooking and diet glossary, as well as a searchable library of cooking techniques.

New features in Diet Pro 2005 include the calorie budget, which lets you keep track of your daily caloric intake goals, and the calorie bank, which keeps track of how much you are over or under your goals. Diet Pro 2005 factors your exercise regimen into its calorie budget and bank calculations. The latest version of the program also has an improved profile interface, a new profile wizard with ideal weight calculator and weight goal analysis, a water tracker, diet summaries, improved cost summaries, nutrition evaluations, an improved calendar interface, exercise tracking, and dozens of other new features.
