If you have lost weight, tried to lose weight or are just thinking about losing weight you have undoubtedly been inundated by advertising.
Be it television, radio, spam, billboards, hell even folks walking the streets with sandwich boards… you are hit by a plethora of quick fix weight loss promising products..
Drink this in place of a meal and you will lose weight.
Order pre-packaged food and you will lose weight.
Take this “natural” pill and you will lose weight.
I’ve been exposed to them all, I’ve even tried a few. Everything from fasting, juicing, fruit only, to vegetable only diets all promise rapid weight loss without effort.
I am always skeptical of the fast, fat-loss fads that claim to bring forth miracles that are too good to be true. Why? Because they are too good to be true.
Anyone who knows me, has heard me on the radio, podcasts, seen me on television, has read my book or this blog is aware that I am an avid low carbohydrate follower. They also understand that I am more than just about a diet. I am a firm believer in the power and benefits of exercise and fitness. I work out seven days a week.
The most effective way to lose weight and get in shape is following my plan. Okay, I’m a little biased. However, if you follow and apply the 3 D’s and the 3 E’s you have no option but to gain renewed health.
