Have you lost this weight, but experienced severe fallbacks on the long run?
Have you even tested some “special” diets, with more or less important successes on the short term?
Can you remember how you felt during those diets?
Did you consider this suffering as “the price to pay”?
Do you count calories?
Are you convinced that fat makes you fat?
Do you think that cereals and fruit are healthier food choices than eggs and bacon?
Have you been told that you only need more exercise?
If you answered with a YES to most of those questions, you are not alone. Common “wisdom” still makes us believe that discipline, fat-free products, more “healthy” carbs and regular exercise are the solution to the ideal weight, whatever this means to you. If nothing of this helps, there are diet drugs, special body lotions…. who are the solutions to fix it.
THEY ARE NOT!
The figures of the WHO show: our “developed” society is more overweight than ever. There are numerous new illnesses popping up and there is a epidemic of the so called metabolic syndrome, a combination of obesity, high blood pressure, elevated triglyceride and glucose values in your blood. We get older, but not healthier. We live longer but we do not thrive. We eat too much, know it, eat less for a short period of time to lose weight and start all over again. Pharmaceutical industry, fitness rooms, light products etc. supposedly are there to fix all and there are certainly huge benefits – especially for them and their profits, one of the reasons why things do not change as fast as they could.
“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.”

I’ve done the whole journey
… so I know how challenging it is to resist the daily temptations as you are – for the moment – probably sugar addicted, leptin- or insulin resistent. You might be unsure if it will work out for you this time. You will have to dispute common wisdom, friends, colleagues and sometimes even family potentially scoffing off or laughing at you, trying to make you look stupid or ridiculous. Most of them are simply claiming that it is a trend, a modern diet like so many others. They will claim that this trend is as good or bad as any other and that it will pass. You will read articles or studies in the media trying to prove you wrong. (a closer look at the sponsor behind the initial study might be quite revealing). I also know about all the excuses and lies we sometimes like to offer ourselves in weak moments. (I am too weak. I have bad genes. I’m addicted to spinning. I need my bread. I don’t have time. It’s expensive. It’s complicated …)
The bad news
You can’t rely on the comfort of common wisdom any more: you will have to think for yourself.
The good news
You have nothing to lose. The status quo is known: the statistics for obesity, diabetes, cancer, autoimmune diseases, metabolic syndrome etc. published by WHO – clearly prove that common wisdom does not work.
Let’s get started!
