Joshua Rosenthal, Dr. Richard Linchitz & Others Are Involved in The Smart Diet Habits of Highly Successful Losers

Posted on

Naturally, when you buy a health or diet book, you want to know if any celebrities and health experts are behind it.
Well, I’m pleased to announce that The Better Habits Diet has the participation of some cutting-edge people in the fields of health and wellness.
In fact, some acclaimed people already have come on board.
Baden First of all, respected integrative physician Richard M. Linchitz, M.D. – a cancer survivor himself — will serve as medical consultant for The White-Out Diet.
Dr. Linchitz’s story is amazing. Back in 1998, he was diagnosed with lung cancer (despite never having smoked).
His doctor delivered a bleak diagnosis — he told him that 55 percent of lung cancer patients people lived for only five years.
Despite the negative news, Dr. Linchitz recovered by making massive changes to his diet and lifestyle.
In fact, Dr. Linchtiz will share his tale in The Better Habits Diet. And together, we’ll offer offer his tips so you, too, can achieve optimal health and possibly even put cancer at bay.
Joshua_message_pic In addition, I’m pleased to announce that Joshua Rosenthal MScEd, the acclaimed founder and director of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN), the largest nutrition school in the country, is writing the introduction.
As I’ve indicated a number of times on my Sugar Shock Blog, I attended the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in 2005 to 2006, and found this to be a rewarding, uplifting and enriching experience for a number of different reasons.
First off, one of the most exciting things about attending IIN was that we regularly listened to lectures from big-name, stellar guest lecturers — people like Deepak Chopra, Dr. Andrew Weil, eating disorder specialist Geneen Roth and Dr. Walter Willett of Harvard.

New Year’s Resolutions: 7 Tips to Make Your Goals a Reality, Thanks to the Institute for Integrative Nutrition & “Goals Guy” Gary Ryan Blair

Posted on

So have you made your list yet of New Year’s resolutions? Are you determined to keep them this year?
If you’re like millions, you’re wondering how to finally accomplish them all make 2009 your best year yet.
Here are 7 tips on how to make your Resolutions a Reality, five of which I got from the inspiring Joshua Rosenthal, founder and director of the Institute for Integrative Nutition (where I went to school). He posted these fabulous tips on the Integrative Nutrition blog. (Please note that in the tips I’m presenting below, I’m either directly quoting Joshua (not as often) or (more often) I’m taking his fabulous ideas and revising them or adding to them — or I’m changing the order in which he presented them. But whether I built on his suggestions or not, they are Joshua’s ideas (even though for several years, I’ve already been urging my coaching clients to follow all of these recommendations)
So here are some tips to stick to your New Year’s resolutions:
1. Write down your New Year’s resolutions and then put them in a place — or even places where you can see them. This is my favorite of Joshua’s suggestions. For instance, after taking pen to paper, you could tape your list to your bathroom mirror or a prominent place in your bedroom. You could even put it on your desk (in a plastic folder) or stick it to your fridge with a magnet. (I recommend posting them on your refrigerator and near mirrors if you want to kick sugar or peel offf pounds.)
2. Imagine (or be clear about) what your life would look like once you achieve your goals. For instance, if you resolve to work out more often at the gym (one of my New Year’s resolutions), how would this benefit you? Would you have more energy, take more pride in your appearance, have a more cheerful demeanor and be more “together” so you can give to others? If your goal is to get out of debt and make more money, exactly how much do you want to earn? Or, if your New Year’s resolution is to find Mr. or Ms. Right in 2009, how would that feel to you and what would the person be like? Would you be more content and feel more fulfilled? Really delve into how your life would change if you stuck to your resolutions. Then take action to make them happen. (You do need to do homework to make these happen. For instance, you need to join or take yourself to a gym, redo your resume or post an ad on an online dating site, etc.)
