No “Quick-Fix” Method of Losing Weight

In the USA, slimmers spend an average of 82 million dollars a day, trying to lose weight. That’s one thousand dollars a second! Yet over a third of all American women still have a weight problem. The moral? If there’s an easy way to lose weight, they haven’t heard about it in America!

But this doesn’t stop companies from advertising all sorts of expensive slimming treatments which are ‘guaranteed’ to give you the figure of your dreams.

For example, you can spend a fortune on pills, patches, herbal treatments, food supplements, appetite suppressants, or food allergy tests, without gaining any benefit whatsoever. How come? Because there is no reliable medical evidence to suggest that any of these easy-options work.

In fact, quite apart from being an expensive waste of money, some of these treatments can be positively harmful. They can interfere with the body’s natural mechanisms and cause all sorts of problems.

Take appetite suppressants, for example. Unless we are about to eat ourselves to death – which is hardly a common problem – what is the benefit of suppressing our natural urge to eat? I mean, food isn’t the enemy: food gives us strength!

However, in my experience, the worst thing about some of these products is that they can actually make us fat! For example, I know countless slimmers who have tried all sorts of gimmicks, but who were so disappointed with the results that they lost all confidence in their ability to lose weight. Result? They gave up and got even fatter. I even know ‘Slimmers of the Year’ who were encouraged to use pills to help them achieve their huge weight loss but who rapidly returned to their original weight when they stopped taking them.

The moral? There are no miracle cures when it comes to slimming. The only guaranteed way to lose weight for good, is to cut down on rubbish and eat a proper balanced diet with lots of nourishing food. This sort of sensible eating plan will not only get you down to a comfortable weight, it will also boost your energy and make you feel fantastic!

Now some of you may be thinking: ‘But I’ve tried dieting lots of times and I just can’t do it. I want to try something different!’ If this is what you think, then here’s my answer: stop kidding yourself! Anyone who follows a sensible diet is guaranteed to get down to a comfortable weight, and that includes you! If you haven’t managed it so far, it’s because you didn’t follow your diet properly, or else you didn’t follow it for long enough.

Conclusion? Don’t fool yourself into thinking that there is an easy alternative to dieting, because there isn’t. If there was, you’d hear about it, believe me! It would be splashed across the front page of every newspaper in the country. It would be welcomed with open arms by every doctor in the world.

However, if you are still determined to try something different, then I suggest you try my miraculous new Wellington Boot Diet. It’s very easy, just stick a wellington boot on your head and then eat sensibly for three months. By doing this, you’ll lose about 2 stone. Believe me, it works every time.

To obtain a copy of this exciting new diet, (including one left-footed wellington boot) please send me a cheque for £500, together with details of your head size. Order by the end of the month and I’ll send you a free copy of my new book entitled: 101 Ways to Put the Boot into Your Weight Problem.
