It’s 2009 and here you are again.
Sure, you haven’t tried this program before but you no doubt aren’t a stranger to the dieting merry-go-round that has been plaguing your life up to this point. If you are here then there is a 98% likelihood that you are looking for yet another way to lose weight, sorry girls this figure is especially true for women. For the fellas on the other hand, it’s around the 60% mark, staggering but true. So, what does this mean? It means that between 60% and 98% of American adults will be on yet another diet at some stage during the New Year.
It’s all part and parcel of the New Year’s resolution checklist and weight loss is a high priority on it. That means that we will set our goals with full intention of dropping every last pound so that we can swan around at the beach in that two-piece bikini then after the first week there we are, staring down at the bowl of cabbage soup wondering what on earth what it was all for in the first place. Darn those New Year’s resolutions! So, there we are again, we yet again failed the weight loss resolution part of our goal but that’s ok because we’ll just write it down again for next year.
Rinse and repeat and the cycle continue. These sobering high figures of dieter’s shows us that we are all well aware that we need to lose some weight yet each year we continue to get fatter than the year before.
Diets actually make you gain weight in the long term and that is becoming ever more evident in the obesity epidemic that is plaguing this fast food, minimal exercise generation. Did you know that stadium seats have to be widened to accommodate the increase in peoples expanding, ahem…girth? It shows that we are becoming a larger nation (and not in a good way) of people than we ever have before, and this is in the past 20 years alone. Our children are suffering from obesity related conditions such as diabetes and heart disease.
A group of 70 obese American children from the ages of 6 to 19 were subjected to a battery of tests to examine the effect that a diet high in fat had on their young body’s.
The results were eye opening. All suffered from high cholesterol, and all were within the high-risk category of having cardiovascular disease and heart failure of which some subjects were already exhibiting symptoms of.
Among some of the tests was the measurement of plaque buildup of the carotid arteries. These are the arteries that are located on either side of the neck which supply precious blood and oxygen to the face and brain. The shocking discovery is that these youngsters had the artery age of a person in their 40’s.
That means that their arteries and internal age was more than twice that of their chronological age, as doctors say, “you’re only as young as your arteries”.
Frightening, isn’t it? Children are literally being robbed of a long, healthy life simply by what they are eating. Because children learn what they eat from their parents it’s vitally important that we teach them good eating habits based upon our example.
So, I’m glad you are here, but let’s make this the last program you do. Get off the dieting treadmill that has kept you overweight and under fit for too long. Stay away from the pills, powders and potions that go against your body’s natural balance and get back to basics. Look at it this way, if we get back to basics and eat and move like our slimmer ancestors did, the better off we all will be.
My purpose is that by the end of this book you will have gained a greater understanding of how your body works. How and why, you gained the weight and what you can do to drop pounds for good this time because believe it or not, why we gained the weight in the first place goes far beyond just overeating.
Most programs throw a program at you addressing only the issue of the weight itself while we are going to delve a little deeper to get to the core of your weight gain. If you don’t properly address and correct this issue from the start you will always be wondering why you can’t lose weight and keep it off for good. Not anymore.
My aim is to arm you with all the knowledge and tools you will need to drop the weight once and for all.
I thank you for taking this journey. If you apply what you learn here, you have no choice but to lose weight. But like with anything in life, you only get out what you put in.
I know you can do it.
So, let’s get started
