Dietary Jerry's Weight Loss Survival Guide draws amusing and informative parallels between survival situations and the struggle to achieve and maintain a healthy weight. The Survival Guide is designed to help anyone chart a path to health using a balance of nutritional advice, environmental change and behavior modification. It includes recipes and proven weight loss strategies- all delivered in an entertaining manner. It also includes a "Compass Card" to help readers identify problematic environments, set goals and measure progress. The author, Dietary Jerry, is a Board-Certified Specialist in Obesity and Weight Management (CSOWM). He has helped thousands of patients who've struggled to maintain a healthy weight survive a weight loss industry with contradictory, confusing and sometimes unsafe advice. In this book, Jerry shares keys to successful weight loss that are often overlooked by those without a background in clinical nutrition. Jerry Elizondo has been a practicing dietitian for twenty years. He is a board-certified specialist in obesity and weight management through the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and has provided nutrition education for over 10,000 patients preparing for bariatric surgery. He grew up in the hill country of Helotes, Texas, where he found his love for the outdoors. Jerry and his wife, Amanda, live in Austin, Texas, where he remains an outdoor enthusiast and takes every chance he gets to go rock climbing, mountain biking, or swimming in a Texas river.
