The article presents information on the success story of Deanna Adler, resident of Washington and a reader of the magazine, who lost 125 pounds. Deanna tried several times to slim down, but had trouble sticking to a diet and exercise plan. Deanna substituted chicken breast for fatty meats and traded the fast-food breakfasts for yogurt and fruit; by eating big servings of vegetables and fruits, she never felt deprived. Deanna steadily lost about 2 pounds a week, and as her motivation increased, junk food lost its appeal. After one year, she was down to 150 pounds.
