Dr. David L. Katz, head of the Yale School of Medicine Prevention Research Center, provides expert guidance to lifelong weight control, health and contentment with food:

--Create a "decision balance": Discover your real feelings about losing weight and maximize your motivation.
--Control your hunger: By limiting flavor variety at one sitting the satiety centers in your brain make you feel full faster.
