New Year, new goals, new edition of 'The Mayo Clinic Diet'

Each new year brings new hope and many weight loss goals that often go unrealized.

"The foundation of any weight loss program, whether it involves different types of programs, medications, procedures ­­— it does get down to lifestyle and diet and physical activity. The way people go about this sometimes isn't productive. Just starving and trying to exercise for a couple of hours a day usually doesn't work well," says Dr. Donald Hensrud, an internal medicine physician specializing in nutrition and weight management, and editor of the "Mayo Clinic Diet."

"The Mayo Clinic diet is more than a diet. It's a lifestyle change program,” Dr. Hensrud says. “Making lifestyle changes that work over a period of time is an approach that works.” That's what he recommends in the newly released third edition of the "Mayo Clinic Diet." It's a long-term weight management program created by a team of experts at Mayo Clinic based on research and clinical experience.
