The weight loss/diet industry is a multi-billion dollar industry. Judging by the myriads of commercials and ads we're constantly inundated with, it appears that all they want to do is help us lose weight. In reality, they have no interest in helping you lose weight - they're in it to make money on you. Lots of money.
You see, they know that the odds of someone losing weight with their products and keeping it off are astronomical. But they'll never tell you that. Think about it - when was the last time you saw a weight loss commercial that showed their spokesperson 10 years after they started the diet? Or even 5 years.
It's no different from those "become a millionaire in real estate" commercials you see late at night. The fine print is always the same as with weight loss products: "Results are not typical".
Don't get me wrong - you can actually lose weight with diet products/plans, but that's not what the main issue is. The issue is, how do you keep it off? Because there is a secret to keeping it off that most people aren't aware of. This is the secret that the weight loss giants will suppress at any cost, because should it become common knowledge, they would all go out of business.
I want you to pay really close attention to what you are about to read, because it will change the way you diet forever.
First, let's kill off a myth: You do not get fat because you don't exercise. It's simply not true. You get fat because you don't eat the right foods at the right intervals every day. And that is a lot easier to do that than it sounds. In fact, if you ignore this little fact, you'll end up storing most of the calories you eat as fat tissue - no matter how much you exercise and starve yourself in between.
Another shocking fact: Using a low calorie diet is pointless. Did you get that? I'll say it again - it is pointless. Period.
Why? Because your own metabolism's response to ANY drop in calories is to READJUST ITSELF to burn fewer calories each day.
Example: Let's say you drop your intake from 4000 to 2,500 calories per day. Your metabolism will promptly adjust itself so that your body now starts to burn only 2,500 calories per day.
This is why your diets always fail in the long run. It's the same reason why your friends can eat 3000 calories a day and not gain any weight, while you gain weight by eating 800 calories a day. But it doesn't have to be that way.
The system behind this knowledge has been nick named "Fat loss for idiots", because this 10-step system to permanent weight loss is so basic and simple that literally anyone can do it. It is the end of dieting and the beginning of something you didn't think was possible: Permanent weight loss.
