Colorado has the lowest rate of obesity in the United States. How do those folks stay in shape? Two researchers from the Anschutz Health and Wellness Center at the University of Colorado promise that you can fix your metabolism no matter where you live.

State of Slim by James O. Hill, PhD, and Holly R. Wyatt, MD, provide a 16 week program in three phases. The first two weeks require dieters to restrict carbohydrates and eat lean proteins and limited fats. The second phase, 6 weeks, broadens the selections of acceptable lean proteins and allows a few more carbs in the form of fruit and whole grain. The third phase, 8 weeks, broadens the fruit and carb choices.

The real key to achieving and maintaining weight loss, according to these authors, is exercise. Consistent physical activity is the single best predictor of long-term weight loss. They insist that a minimum of 70 minutes of movement is necessary six days a week. This can be done in either a structured way or by incorporating far more movement into daily life.
