The “I Can Do This Diet” is the creation of Dr. Don Colbert, who wrote the book under that title. It is currently available in hardcover, paperback, and audio formats. It was designed based on the results of a survey that was conducted online. The purpose of the survey was to discover why dieters seem to get off to a great start but then begin to cheat on their diets after the first weight loss results start being seen.
What Dr. Colbert says that he found was that dieters become frustrated with the fact that they can’t lose weight. Therefore, he has designed the “I Can Do it Diet” to help to turn those thoughts around and give the dieter a better ability to customize their own weight loss program in a way that they will be able to live with its design and, therefore, lose the weight successfully.
The book outlines the five leading reasons that a diet will fail. It also provides some of the basics of successful weight loss and describes various ways that plateaus and mental distractions can be overcome so that they will not lead to the failure of the diet.
Among the most popular features of this book is the fact that it is quite simple and straightforward. Many descriptions of the diet point out that this does not require a large number of radical changes to a person’s lifestyle. Instead, it is based on a foundation of regular, gradual changes that can be added over time in order to continually improve the results of the weight management.
This book requires the dieter to read the whole thing and dedicate him or herself to understanding what it is requesting and then following through with the design of their personalized program. The ownership of the book on its own will, of course, not have any effect unless the dieter chooses to take action on it.
One unique feature of this book that is rarely ever discussed in other diet books is that it provides information on the right foods to eat, how much of them to eat, and when to eat them in order to help to overcome hunger pangs. Hunger is one of the most common reasons that diets fail, so being able to beat the hunger through the tips in this book could be an important part of ensuring the success of a dieting effort.
