Ideal Weight Program
OVERVIEW Go Pro
My name is Stephan J. Guyenet, PhD, and I co-created the Ideal Weight Program with Dan Pardi, MS, PhD. I'm a researcher and writer who specializes in the neuroscience of eating behavior and obesity. I have a lifelong interest in health, nutrition, and fitness that has guided my career. My research has been cited more than 1,700 times by my scientific peers and my general-audience book The Hungry Brain has received an outstanding reception from researchers, doctors, and the general public. The Ideal Weight Program dovetails with the concepts in my book.
The Ideal Weight Program is an evidence-based system for sustainable weight management. This course-based program teaches you the science of body weight and eating behavior and translates it into simple, practical strategies for weight management. It offers three different diets based on your personal weight management goal - from rapid fat loss to healthy weight maintenance - along with recipes and meal plans to support it.
