Hi and thanks so much for your posting. AHH OHH. You're looking for "fast" results. Who isn't? Be careful here. The human body doesn't do well with fast when it comes to dropping any amount of excess weight. Fads and promises of overnight success are shams and lies. You need a credible ongoing plan to help yourself achieve your goals.

If you want to shed weight and KEEP it off for good, you need to have a plan that you can use to remove the weight once and for all. First, take this quiz and see if you have any issues with food and addiction
If you do, read the new science in The Hunger Fix to help you outline your strategy for substituting Healthy Fixes for any sugary/fatty/salty foods you constantly cave to the craving with

Next up, log onto the WebMD Food and Fitness Planner, input your data and get started with a sensible way to track your progress. The plan is customized to your unique make up. Don't forget you'll have to incorporate some form of physical activity as well.

Good luck and let us know how you're doing,

Dr. Peeke
