Hill, Wyatt bring ‘Colorado Diet’ to bookshelves

James O. Hill, founding executive director of the Anschutz Health and Wellness Center, and Holly Wyatt, associate director of the Anschutz Health and Wellness Center and associate professor, will sign their new book, “State of Slim: Fix Your Metabolism and Drop 20 Pounds in 8 Weeks on the Colorado Diet,” at a book signing and cooking demonstration, 5:30-6:30 p.m. Sept. 24 at the center.

Hill and Wyatt say they wrote the book because they are “tired of seeing people have wonderful success in losing weight, only to see them regain it all within a few months. As scientists and researchers, we haven’t just theorized about the right weight-loss strategies, we’ve tested them in our clinic to see if they really work — and they do.”

The new book details the elements of the “Colorado mindset” -- finding motivation, expecting success, making healthy decisions and creating a supportive environment – that lead to a lean body and increased energy. Hill and Wyatt tell readers how to lose 20 pounds in eight weeks and learn to eat and move to work with their body’s metabolism. “State of Slim” also teaches readers how to make changes for permanent weight loss.

Hill and Wyatt cover topics that include learning how to squeeze in exercise, conquer cravings, control portion intake and boost willpower. The book also contains recipes, activity plans, and solutions for excuses or stumbling blocks the reader may have.

The book is now on sale at the Anschutz Health and Wellness Center at a special introductory price of $18.99 for members, $22.99 for nonmembers.

Hill also is author of “The Step Diet: Count Steps, Not Calories, to Lose Weight and Keep It Off Forever.”
