Instead, we offer 12 smart regulation strategies that help you reach and maintain your leanest livable weight – the weight at the low end of your set range. These scientifically tested strategies work because they don’t fight biology or rely on willpower. They don’t require agonizing self-denial or a single-minded focus on your weight, so you can make these simple changes and then get on with the important things in life.
