LIVING THIN: An Attitude, Not a Diet

LIVING YOUNG: An Attitude, Not an Age

Sylvia M. Goldman

“I know what I need to do to lose weight, so why don’t I do it?” This questions is commonly asked by people wanting to lose weight (and often failing over and over again). Sylvia has the answer: “You don’t do it because you don’t feel like doing it, and you lack the discipline.” Her solution: “You don’t have to feel like doing it, you just have to do it.”

But Sylvia provides more than this  get-tough-with-yourself message. She cajoles.” she inspires, she motivates, she wins us over to a new way of thinking. Sylvia includes the latest findings on weight loss and exercise. Coupled with her common-sense approach to weight loss “eat less, increase your physical activity”  and her helpful directions around common lifestyle hazards, all make for an eminently doable and rewarding program.

Living Thin is very much like having dinner with Sylvia exciting, provocative, funny, challenging and serious.”
Harvey Diamond, co-author of the best-selling Fit for Life and II

“Sylvia’s Living Thin is a brilliant compilation of the latest thinking in weight loss research and mental health.”
Dr. Jack Osman, Professor of Health Science, Towson University

SYLVIA M. GOLDMAN has been teaching her Living Thin Program to adults of all ages for more than twenty years in Maryland and in Florida. Thousands have successfully lost weight and kept it off by following her approach. Goldman believes “Diets are for Dummies.” She believes each person must fashion his or her own eating and exercise plan. She believes your eating and exercise regime has got to work for you. It must take into account your food and exercise preferences and your lifestyle. “No one can diet for you, and no one can die for you,” Goldman says.
