The key differentiator between Food Lovers and other weight loss programs is that users can lose weight without giving up their favorite foods!

Consumers learn how to make simple, practical, yet effective changes to how they eat their favorites foods, enabling them to manage their body's glycemic response to foods, while lowering caloric intake and stimulating the metabolism…All without requiring the consumption of prepackaged foods, complicated counting of calories, points or fat grams, and without starvation dieting.

  • Heart Healthy
  • Diabetic Friendly
  • Suitable for the whole family and adaptable to any eating eating preferences, including vegetarians.

Employing clinically proven psychological techniques, the SMART Technique Automatic Fat Loss program is the one program that addresses what no other weight loss plan does - it helps you identify and overcome the underly- ing psychological reasons that have caused you to gain weight and pre- vented you from taking it off. The fact of the matter is, if you have tried to lose weight in the past and haven't been successful, or have lost weight only to gain it right back, it's not your fault. The problem is simply that you have psychological obstacles or deep-seated patterns of behavior and deeply ingrained habits that cause you to reach for food for comfort, give in to crav- ings, and engage in other "fat-causing" behaviors automatically, without even realizing why you are doing it, or even that you're doing it. These deeply ingrained automatic associations with food are known as "subconscious programs." And helping you identify and overcome these subconscious programs and unconscious behaviors is what the SMART Technique is all about. In fact, once you deal with the real reasons that you aren't able to lose weight - the underlying subconscious programs and automatic behaviors - weight loss will be effortless...virtually automatic.

Based on three separate clinical studies, and further confirmed with a com- prehensive double blind study of the product itself, people who use tech- niques like the SMART Technique actually achieve double the weight loss of those who use traditional diets alone. Moreover, it is also the only approach clinically proven to help keep the weight off.

An ideal companion to the nutritional education and fitness techniques provided by our other weight loss programs, the SMART Technique offers the crucial missing component needed for life-long fat loss results - addressing the psychological stumbling blocks and/or unconscious habits that lead to weight gain in the first place.

Provida created and developed the SMART Technique in conjunction with Dr. Peter Lambrou and certified clinical hypnotherapist Mary Holmes. Dr. Lam- brou is a clinical psychologist and certified medical hypnotherapist, author of the best-selling book Self-Hypnosis: The Complete Manual for Health and Self-Change, which has been translated into eight languages worldwide. He is an instructor at the University of California, San Diego, and 2008-2010 Chairman of Psychology at Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla, CA and is frequently invited to speak at professional organizations such as the Ameri- can Society of Bariatric Physicians 2007 Symposium; The Ken Blanchard Companies, The Anthony Robbins Companies, Apple Computers, American Airlines and many others.

Mary Holmes is a certified clinical hypnotherapist and has been in private practice in Los Angeles, California since 1992. She is co-founder of the Holmes Center for Hypnotherapy where she teaches, leads seminars and conducts therapy sessions for groups and individuals. She has appeared on numerous national and international television programs for the Discovery Health Channel, the BBC and ABC.
