In The 20/20 Diet, Dr. Phil McGraw identifies seven reasons other diets fail people over and over again: hunger, cravings, feeling of restriction, impracticality and expense, boredom, temptations, and disappointing results or plateaus.
Then, he addresses each of these roadblocks by applying the latest research and theories that have emerged since his last best seller on the same topic, The Ultimate Weight Solution.
Dr. Phil and his team have created a plan that you can start following right now and continue working for the rest of your life. In this diet, listeners will start by eating only 20 key ingredients, called the “20/20 Foods”, which theories indicate may help enhance your body’s thermogenesis and help you feel full. But that's just the beginning.
This book explains why you haven't been able to lose the weight before, and empowers you with cognitive, behavioral, environmental, social, and nutritional tools so you can finally reach your goal, and learn lifelong healthy habits to maintain those results.

BEWARE: The Audio Version might lead you to question your alertness and numerical skills.
I’m SO unable to even consider what’s being said ...! Let me explain: I downloaded this book from apple as an audio book, and, Ay, Dios Mío!: I thought that I was putting up a mental block and resisting! Yet, after listening to 3 chapters while doing art, I came to realize that the chapters are all scrambled!! Never mind that the book is divided in “chapters” and “parts,” all of which are organized by numbers, the title of several of those chapters and parts are named with sentences that contain numbers as well! Example: (two titles containing number “5”, one containing number “20,” and one containing number “30.” Confused yet? ... EXACTLY. Based on this craziness, I cannot formulate an opinion on this book, but I CAN affirm is that this book in audio form has been curated in a way that will lead you to question your sanity and give up the moment you hit chapter 2, which, btw, you can hear under chapter 8 and, it is ironically named “A diet that defies your logic.” LOL.
I’m sorry, Dr. Phil, I like you, so, please consider this a caring critique and a respectful request: would you care to kindly have your people re-mix the contents of the audio version by un-scrambling the chapters and then re-releasing it to all of us who have been left in stupor, exhausted (trying to figure out that 11 is 4, 4 is 10, 10 is 3, etc.) and barely strong to resist a trip to the pantry in lieu to a renewed interest in mastering sodoku challenges?
PS: or, it is JUST me and my download?
