Are you tall or short, thin or stocky, muscular or wiry? Do you tend to gain weight in your upper or lower body or everywhere at once? Do you have uncontrollable food cravings that contribute to your weight gain pattern?

Different Bodies, Different Diets shows you conclusively that each individual body type requires a different set of rules to live by. We don't all look the same and we don't even like the same foods, so why would we all be able to lose weight on the same diet?

You've probably seen lots of diets come and go, and if you're like most people, you've probably tried more than you care to admit. Dr. Carolyn Mein, the celebrated bionutritionist, has spent the last twenty years researching and refining her 25 Body Type System and has helped tens of thousands of clients achieve and maintain their ideal weight. Now she demonstrates that healthy weight loss is not dependent on willpower is dependent on following a customized diet for your individual body.

This groundbreaking new book offers: The fundamentals of Body Typing and how to apply them The 25 Classic Types, illustrated with more than 200 photographs showing distinguishing features and additional characteristics Specific details about each of the Body Types, including physical composition, weight gain tendencies, essences, psychological profiles, and customized dietary plans Proven remedies for handling food cravings Advice on scheduling meals for the best results Extensive food lists and weekly menus Body type categorization of more than fifty celebrities

In addition to learning the particular foods you should eat and the foods you should avoid, you will enjoy knowing more about the psychological and emotional characteristics of your type. Are you a person who needs to be in control of any situation? Do you create harmony or discord when you enter a room? Do you often seek outside approval or validation? Find out how these tendencies provide valuable insights into your eating habits and body type.

Different Bodies, Different Diets puts an end to the one-diet-fits-all myth and offers you accurate guidelines for eating for your individual type. Finally, a realistic approach that makes sense of the diet jungle!
