So you want to lose weight. It is as ease as eating cake. Now go do it.
There is no mystery, it is all hype used to encourage us to buy a program. The key to weight loss is mental conditioning. Train your mind, change your attitude and your body will follow.

Before you decide to start that expensive program dig deep and do some research. Read, read and read some more. Get a medical physiology book and read about how the body works. How does the food we eat get converted to the building blocks of our body. Then trash those other books you bought.
Next,  get weighed and check your blood pressure. Don’t buy a scale it’s a waste of money. If you have heart disease let your Doctor know that you are planning on changing your life. Don’t ask for approval, he knows less than you do. Just do it.

Go cold turkey. Dump the crap from your fridge. Don’t have more than a weeks worth of food in your fridge. Your diet should consist of fruits, veggie, beans and legumes. If you want to have meat, don’t eat more than once or twice per week. Stop eating out and don’t add sugar to anything.

Next, move more and sit less. Select something you like and work hard. Workout for 35 minutes minimum 3 days a week. Workout at 80% of maximum. If you can talk comfortably you are not working hard enough.

After the first 6 weeks check your blood pressure. Remember, the mind will always quit before the body.
Now do it.


  1. Great advice, nicely written. I would also add the importance of proper hydration. I, for one can vouch that in this “busy” world in which we live, with such high demands on our time, I have gone through periods of “purposely” dehydrating myself in order to not take time away from others, especially at work, by having to run to the restroom. Not a great idea. Water is crucial to decreasing fluid retention, sweat production during workouts, joint lubrication, digestion, absorption/excretion, regulating body temperature, the list goes on…

    Again, nicely written, and I will try to cut the chicken/fish consumption back a tad bit this week as you’ve recommended and I’ll see how that works. Thanks for sharing.
