Do you struggle with your weight and body shape? Do you have a slow metabolism, and are you yearning for a leaner, well-toned body, without endless dieting and struggle? If all has failed so far, let me share a smarter approach with you. Experience real success, and see how you, too, can be looking good with less effort.

Is fat loss the same as weight loss? No, it is certainly not. You may be losing weight with a diet program but the likelihood is that it is doing little or nothing about permanent fat loss.

Diets do NOT work and there is a sound physiological reason why this is so. Still, there are more than 50,000 books about different diets available at Amazon and a respected medical reference site lists more than 85 diets. You’d be well advised to look elsewhere for a solution.

Let us talk about permanent fat loss which is really what you want to achieve. The reasons why we accumulate body fat and why obesity has become a worldwide epidemic are very plain. The reasons are poor nutrition, frequently in combination with a sedentary lifestyle with an inadequate level of physical exercise. Nutrition is the real culprit. It is no exaggeration to state that the multi-billion dollar food, farm, agri and fish industries have progressively poisoned an entire generation. And it’s been done with the full knowledge and co-operation of the regulatory bodies that as supposed to protect our health.

Lets’ start with nutrition

  • I bet you have a fair bit of knowledge about the variety of physical assets that you own; items like your computer, car, washing machine and fridge. You basically know how to avoid neglecting these assets, don’t you? How about you own body which is, after all, the most complex asset you possess?
  • I also bet that you seek consumer data and recommendations before you purchase major assets like a car, fridge, TV, washing machine and similar high cost items. This is common sense and gives you the knowledge to make wise decisions.
  • Now, consider this question. What precise knowledge do you apply when you select the food items you buy at the supermarket and the foods you order from a restaurant menu or as a take-away?

Stop and think! Do you just buy/order what tastes nice, or buy items that your family or children like? Do you order on the basis of what is quick and easy to prepare?

The naked truth is that we do NOT use basic common sense and knowledge to safeguard and feed our bodies the nutrients it needs. We do the very opposite. We buy convenience products that are full of harmful chemicals, sugars and fat instead of the nutrients that our bodies really need. Why is this so? We don’t set out to poison our physical products, so why do we neglect the most precious asset we have? This is why obesity is now a worldwide epidemic, complete with the 30+ serious health risks that it invites.

The problem lies firmly entrenched in our modern lifestyle. One significant manifestation of this lifestyle is the countless supermarket shelves stocked with plastic wrapped processed foods that are anything but healthy. The other convenience we have accepted is the fast-food industry that serves us junk food that we often wash down with soft drinks that are full of sugar. We are also the victims of misleading advertising campaigns that have been going on for decades.

If you really want to reduce fat fast, then stop this rot and start learning the simple, essential steps to permanent fat loss. It involves nutritional changes, the acceptance that exercise and/or physical activity is required and finally some commitment on your part. You need a PLAN and you need to measure your progress. "If you don’t measure what you are doing, then you don’t know what you’re doing!"

Regardless of what various health and fitness magazines tell you in their advertisements, there are NO quick and easy solutions like pills and food supplements. You just have to take the hard decision to start eating healthy foods and do some exercises to build up your lean body mass in order to boost your metabolism so that you body can burn fat faster.
