Bob Greene’s Program
Bob Greene helped Oprah lose weight and keep it off. He continues to help people improve their lifestyles by trading-in existing plans and habits for healthier, more active ones. In his book, Get with the Program!, Greene proposes a four-phase plan that not only forces dieters to tackle losing weight, healthy eating, and increased fitness, but also promotes change in the dieter's self-perception.
- The first phase to his weight-loss program is to make a commitment. The dieter signs a contract that expresses a commitment to staying on track with the program; its aim is to help people realize that they can lose weight and become healthier.
- The next phase is to get in shape at a customized pace, in accordance with the contract. Among many other benefits, this will increase metabolism.
- Phase three is where the habit of emotional eating is tackled and overcome. Discover reasons for emotional eating, and take charge of them. Then, find the self-control and truthful understanding to really make exercise a regular part of life.
- Phase four puts everything together, fine-tuning the program where necessary. During this phase, poor food choices are replaced with healthier ones that are approved by the diet.
The combination of regular exercise, a proper diet, and emotional and self-understanding provides the dieter with a solid base from which to really lead a healthy, happy lifestyle.
