Get the Real "Skinny" on Healthy Weight Loss: Commit to a Lifestyle Modification and Get Results

Make a lifestyle change that will transform your health!

Get the Real Skinny on Healthy Weight Loss Final Cover Design

 

Have you tried diets, exercise programs, and other self-help books only to find that after months you have the same results as when you started?


If You Answered Yes to this Question,


Get the Real “Skinny” on Healthy Weight Loss
is the guide you have been searching for that will lead you to long-term sustainable results through lifestyle changes!

With all of the books about dieting that are found on the market and online these days, you might be asking yourself, “Why do I need more diet information?” Well, the truth is, you probably don’t, but how do you really know?

I suppose you could ask yourself a few questions to help determine whether another guide is needed.  Let's do that and find out!


Do you answer “NO” to any of the following questions?

  • "Have I been successful at losing weight?”
  • “Has my weight loss been more than just water weight?”
  • “Am I starving myself or going without items that I enjoy?”
  • “Am I taking supplements or harmful weight loss stimulants to lose the weight?”
  • “Have I been successful at keeping the weight off – for more than one month? Three Months? Six Months? One year?”
  • “Am I within the healthy weight limits as described by my personal physician?”
  • “Am I happy? Or am I constantly irritable?”
  • “Do I look and feel better about myself?”

If you responded in ways that have made you question your weight loss success, you may need to review the methods with which you’ve chosen to lose the weight.

Each and every individual that promotes diet, exercise, and weight loss come from different places, usually providing specific information related to their own personal journey and set of circumstances and beliefs. In other words, they may be coming from a different place entirely than you. Does this mean that the information provided is irrelevant or completely off base? Absolutely not! It just means that you’ll have to read through the information, find specifics to weight loss and exercise that are universal in nature, and apply them to your own situation, which is somewhat predetermined by your lifestyle.

Within the covers of this guide, my goal is to provide you with information that will help you commit to a total lifestyle change, as truly healthy weight loss IS dependent upon every choice that you make and action you take. It’s not just about how much you eat or whether you exercise regularly, there are many other factors that come into play. How do I know? I’ll share my personal experiences with you later; however, suffice it to say that I’ve endured a tremendous number of life-changing experiences, each of which has led to this publication.  A book filled with information which can be customized and geared specifically toward YOU and your goals.  NO one size fits all here!
