How I Lost Weight By Not Following The Mainstream Media And Health Guru's Advice - Why The Health Industry Is Broken And How We Can Fix It
If you want to find out how I lost 30 lbs in 90 days, then read on. I did it not by following the advice from the media about what to eat and what not to eat, but by following a specific diet plan that works.
You need to listen to the following VERY carefully.
You are probably overweight. Maybe even "obese".
I'm sorry to be brutally honest, but it's likely true. The facts don't lie...
More than 2/3 of Americans today are overweight. A large portion of that 71% is obese.
Prescription medications are the norm (HALF of all Americans are taking at least one). Most seniors are taking at least three.
If you're lucky enough to not be "on" anything, you know someone who is.
Why is this the case?
Why have we "reset" ourselves to accept a drastically lower standard of living?
Should obesity, chronic illness, and death via major disease really be accepted as a fact of life" or "consequence of old age"?
Is it really our bad genes that force us to live with a constant need of pills and doctors, and dialysis and pacemakers?
No, of course not!
It wasn't always this bad.
There was a time, not so long ago, when most modern diseases were unheard of.
There was a time when people all around the world, from tens of thousands of societies lived healthily and happily. Free from disease, illness, and unnecessary death.
Some of these societies didn't even have words for "cancer" or "diabetes" in their vocabulary.
How was this possible?
How is it that the society we live in today is so rampant with obesity and other deadly illnesses, while others can't describe "cancer" because they don't have to??
Well, my friend, it all comes down to realizing that probably 80% of the "news" you see on the internet, TV, radio, etc. about nutrition or exercise is false.
It all comes from a sick, sad system based on putting the almighty dollar first (and on the internet, the almighty "page views" and "clicks", which bring in millions in advertising revenue).
One article lies that a "7 Minute Workout" is all you need to lose weight and "get lean", whereas anyone who has actually lost a LOT of weight can tell you that smart nutrition is KING.
Another article repeats the now-disproven lie that "cholesterol and saturated fat cause heart disease"...a claim that major scientific institutions have now published research against.
(Controlled studies, in which participants ate 2-4 whole eggs daily, found that dietary cholesterol has little effect on blood cholesterol in 75% of the population.1 Additionally, a study following 58,000 men for 14 years on average, found zero association between saturated fat intake and heart disease, and an inverse relationship between saturated fat intake and stroke.2)
But of course we don't find out the truth.
We only hear about the stories with shock value. Because after all, would you rather click on (and likely share) an article that says "Spinach is good for you" or an article that says "Eggs are slowly killing you"? Chances are, it's the latter.
The fact that eggs are NOT slowly killing you doesn't matter in the least. All that matters is some smarty pants editor at (insert any popular website or media outlet) has just pushed your buttons and scared you enough to share an article with no legitimate scientific backing. And he's done his "job" well enough that he's going to look pretty darn good when his article brings in $400,000 of ad revenue for the month. (at your expense of course)
And as a result, off we go, believing what Yahoo, TV doctors, and other media outlets (including "expert" blogs) tell us about health, instead of listening to the people who've walked the walk, and had real, significant weight loss transformations.
Off we go working out for 7 minutes a day (and probably burning no more than 80 calories).
Off we go removing eggs and other sources of healthy fats (and likely replacing them with fat-storing, blood sugar spiking foods).
And off we go, wondering why the scale won't budge, why the jeans don't fit, and why we keep getting weaker and sicker.
Well, you've been had.
We've all been had.
It's the ugly nature of media, and the ugly nature of money politics.
Honest Americans click away on flashy "eggs cause heart disease" headlines, and hotshot media executives laugh all the way to the bank, carrying hundreds of millions in ad revenue.
The "giants" get bigger, while the Average Joe gets the short end of the draw. We are stuck between a rock and a hard place, and more confused than we started.
Thankfully, that's all about to change.
Millions of Americans around the country are seeking out the truth and finding answers that are literally transforming their lives.
And you'll find a good amount of those answers in the rest of this book.
You've picked up a guide that's going to give you the ins and outs on just about everything you need to know to build the body of your dreams, while understanding more about health, fitness, and mind-body wellness than 95% of the population.
And that's a promise.
