Suppose you're on a flight from
Miami to Los Angeles, and two hours into it you decide you're
not getting there as quickly as you'd like. What do you do?
Bail out? Not likely. You tell yourself to be patient, perhaps
you squirm in your seat a little bit, but when it's all said
and done you accept the reality that it's going to take five
hours, even if you'd like it to be a much shorter trip. Sure,
you can fantasize and wish the day would come that they'd
invent the transporter from Star Trek that will get you there
in seconds, but until that fantasy becomes real, there are
limitations to how quickly you can reach your destination.
What happens if after two hours you choose to bail? Hmmm.
In all likelihood you go SPLLAAAAATTTT somewhere around Houston
I guess the reason you aren't likely
to jump out of a California bound 727 at 42,000 feet is because
you know better. Nobody's telling you that it's the secret
to arriving sooner. You fully understand the reality.
When it comes to weight loss, wow
are things out of whack! Infomercials blatantly promise it's
quick. In fact, the newest solutions promise you'll lose 10
pounds in 2 days! Whatever your passion, pills, devices, wraps,
juices, or any combination thereof, you can find them being
sold with the promise of "quick" weight loss.
Here's the elusive reality. Quick
weight loss is absolutely, positively, 100% guaranteed to
result in residual weight gain! Quick weight loss amounts
to water loss. Don't eat for a couple of days, chug water,
walk 12 miles, swallow some caffeine pills, and sit in the
sauna for 30 minutes at a time. I guarantee you'll lose weight.
Is that effective or healthful if the goal is long term fat
reduction? Of course not. Even if it were effective (which
it isn't), is that a regimen you can stick to? Not in a million
My greatest challenge in helping
people to grasp the truth is that new offerings with absurd
promises continue to vie for their attention . . . and with
powerful marketing, the bogus offers often win. In the short
term that is. The most absurd part of the whole "I can't lose
weight" process is the belief that after embarking upon a
restrictive diet, a bout with stimulants disguised as "supplements,"
or an excessive aerobic exercise routine is the tendency of
weight loss wanters to blame themselves! "It's my fault, I
didn't stick to it." With that thought as the foundation of
their belief systems, you can be certain they're going to
go out in search of yet another promise that falls flat.
The longer an individual attempts
to remain on a restrictive program, the more likely it is
that muscle will be sacrificed and thyroid hormone production
will be altered. Translated that means metabolism slows. The
weight loss sellers love that! It means you'll be back for
more!!! In fact, the entire weight loss industry thrives simply
because it fails! People fail to get what they pay for . .
. and they come back for more of the same.
When finally, in the midst of all
of the promises, someone actually stumbles upon a truly valuable
program, a systematic approach to fat loss, their prior programming
. . . the pattern of quick weight loss and self-blame for
residual gain . . . creates a tendency to want to bail out!
Unlike the airplane scenario, nobody
really explained, at a level that it was absorbed and integrated
into "belief," that there isn't any "quick" path. In order
to get the body to release fat, you have to understand some
The human body is not really
capable of shedding more than 2 pounds of fat in a week,
especially on an ongoing basis, and even that . . . 2
pounds per week . . . would be an extreme!
The human body is capable of
losing far more than 2 pounds in a week, but that would
indicate loss of either muscle or water.
Muscle loss is guaranteed to
decrease caloric burn and slow metabolism.
Water loss is temporary.
Since so many have actually lost
8, 10, or even 12 pounds in a week or two, when they get on
a program that doesn't immediately team up with the scale
to create the illusion that "it's working," they feel frustrated,
defeated, and ready to bail out. Nobody helped them to understand
that the journey has to take time.
It gets even more frustrating.
If you take someone who is used to starving, to cutting back
on food, and they begin to consume meals complete in proteins
and supportive carbohydrates, they begin to hold more "glycogen"
in muscle tissue. That's a good thing! Glycogen is stored
fuel. If they've also started an exercise program, their glycogen
storing propensity is even greater. Glycogen attracts water!
After two weeks on an efficacious and valuable fat loss program,
it is possible that "scale weight" might have crept up a few
pounds! Since so many have been programmed to gauge their
progress by the scale's momentary report, the all too familiar
"failure" sensations kick in all over again.
Listen. You know me by now. I'm
not going to tell you it's quick or it's easy. What I am going
to tell you is the truth! When you get the balance between
the right nutrition and the right exercise correct . . . you
begin a process of ongoing improvement that can take you literally
as far as you'd like to go. The demons are those little voices
in your head that want you to fail. The voices that tell you
if you're not seeing weight loss you are a complete and total
The best investment you can make
to quell the demons . . . a sledgehammer. Bring it home, and
smash your scale into a million pieces. The scale can not
tell you anything other than how many pounds you weigh under
gravity at any given moment. It can not distinguish between
water, bone, muscle, internal organs, teeth or hair. It simply
gives you a meaningless total.
The best weapon to send those "failure
demons" packing is common sense. Many let go of their common
sense to welcome the belief that there's some sort of magic
just waiting to "melt fat" away. It's a dangerous belief.
It's the one that sends you bailing out when you've only started
My programs work because they teach
you to coach the body through a process, a process that allows
you to speed metabolism, develop functional strength and energy,
and ultimately shed fat in a manner that keeps you in control.
Do this correctly, and although there is a definite time investment
on your part, the payoff cannot be matched.
I honestly wish I had a shortcut.
I wish I had magic. What I do have is a commitment to honesty,
a passion for helping people, and a mastery of the true technology
of positive physical change. If you look at your history,
and it reveals that you might have bailed out too soon, only
because you weren't seeing "pounds melt away," maybe you'll
come to grips with the reality. If you want to arrive at your
destination, and that destination has anything to do with
a lean, toned body, you're going to have to play by the rules
of nature. If someone does circumvent nature, and invent a
legitimate pill, product, or device that melts fat or drops
pounds permanently and healthfully, believe me I'll shout
at the top of my lungs to spread the word. Until then I have
only the truth. It may not be as glamorous as hyped up promises
. . . but it's served me and 35,000+ people who have found
results with my programs. It can serve you as well.
