Mayo Clinic Minute: The Mayo Clinic Diet’s new tools
Just in time for resolution season comes the second edition of The Mayo Clinic Diet.
“We got the basics right in the first edition,” says Dr. Donald Hensrud, lead author and medical editor of the diet book. “With this update, we’ve made it an even better lifestyle program.”
The Mayo Clinic Diet makes it possible to eat more and weigh less by breaking bad habits and adopting healthy new ones. There’s no calorie counting or rigid rules, and the plan can be personalized.
“No food is off limits,” explains Dr. Hensrud, who is also medical director of the Mayo Clinic Healthy Living Program. “We do watch portion size of some foods, but it’s practical and enjoyable. We think it’s the best way to manage weight.”
In this Mayo Clinic Minute, Dr. Hensrud highlights some of the new resources in the book and how they help with the two phases of the diet. Jeff Olsen reports.
