The Personality Test Diet by Dr. Kushner acknowledges that what suits one personality will not always suit another. We knew that of course but it is interesting that this is the first weight loss plan that has put this knowledge into practice.
The personality type diet develops your personalized weight loss program based on three critical dimensions of your lifestyle – eating, exercise, and emotional coping. Your diet personality is assessed and you are given a diet plan that is intended to suit your personality.
In the interests of research I took the free diet personality quiz. It took around 5 to 10 minutes and asked a lot of questions about my attitude to exercise and my eating patterns. This is its verdict:
- Your Eating Personality is Steady Snacker
- Your Exercise Personality is All-or-Nothing Doer
- Your Coping Personality is Self Scrutinizer
This is a pretty good assessment I must admit. To get the full 17 page report and personalized weight loss plan you must pay up and join. The report contains a complete description of your diet personality and explains how you can gain control of your weight without the usual frustration of restrictive diets or the stress of yo-yo dieting. In addition to the eating plan provided, you can access 24 hour support by phone and a support forum where you can find help and weight loss buddies.
