Publisher's Summary

Almost everyone who wants to lose weight makes a painful discovery: diets don't work. After following the rules and wrestling with the temptations, nearly all dieters regain what they have lost...and then some. What's worse, the anger and frustration of constant dieting just make us want to eat more! If only we could turn off the drive to overeat. But that's impossible, right? Wrong! Based on the amazingly effective method developed by weight-loss expert Laurel Mellin, The 3-Day Solution Plan will give you a powerful, step-by-step plan to turn off the drive to overeat while shedding up to six pounds! A proven program for lasting weight loss without dieting, The Solution Method was developed by Mellin at the University of California, San Francisco's School of Medicine. Health magazine named it one of the 10 top medical advances of 2000. But this is the first time The Solution Method has been made accessible to everyone as a results-oriented jumpstart to the program, and it only takes three days.
The life-changing potential of The Solution Method is that it directly addresses the feeling brain, the home of our most primitive urges, like eating. Other weight loss programs are based on knowledge and planning┬┐activities of the thinking brain. The problem is that there is no significant relationship between the feeling brain and the thinking brain. Reason can't make anyone stop wanting a cookie.
But as Solution participants attest: this program works. Two- and six-year follow-up studies have shown The Solution to produce weight loss without dieting and unparalleled results in terms of keeping it off.
With delicious recipes, complete menus, and suggestions for easy restaurant substitutions, The 3-Day Solution Plan is a complete road map that begins guiding you toward the ultimate destination: a thinner, more vibrant you!

A Great Kick Start!

This is a three day program to introduce one to the joys of living "above the line". In other words, it gives you a sample of what life could be like if you had the skills you need to nurture yourself and set effective limits for yourself. Obviously, you won't master those skills in 3 days! I followed the three day plan as closely as possible and it was a great three days. (I was already familiar with the Solution program, having read her earlier books.) The three days inspired me (and I did lose about 4 pounds!)
