Why Diet’s Don’t Work. How To Really Lose 30 lbs in 30 Days and Keep it off forever. By Tony DeFrancisco, Weight Control Consultant

In parts 1 and 2 we discussed why diets don’t work and some of the issues dieters have. We discussed setpoints and the fallacy of just eating less calories.  We also discussed why exercise and diet alone does not work. And why certain foods work better than others. Certain supplements were also     discussed along with a particular kind of vegetables called “Thermic Vegetables”  These burn more calories than they contain.

Let me also address a question that came up about exercise. If you have read any of my linkedin articles, you know that I am a devout beleiver in regular exercise.  Nothing will add years ot your life and life to your years as well as exercise. My point was and is that if diet and exercise is all you have to do to lose weight, then how come so many who attend health clubs and diet are having so much difficulty losing weight?

I have been weight training since 1964. Ran a chain of gyms in the late 1970s and early 1980s. I still workout 3 times per week at least. I believe strongly in it, however, it is not a panacea to weight loss.

I saw it in my gyms in the 1970s. People would come in and workout, diet but still didn’t get their desired results. After months of this, they gave up in frustration.

In 1974 I first began using protein powders as a meal replacement. As far as I knew, no one else was advising this. All weight trainers, bodybuilders and powerlifters used protein powders as a supplement, never as a meal replacement. In an attempt to drop my weight from 185-190 lbs down to the 165 lbs class for powerlifting events, I experiemented with protein shakes. They worked like magic. It was concentrated protein. Had as much protein as a steak or six eggs but without the calories or fat. The weight melted off me, I made weight but unlike other diets I used, I lost no noticeable strength.

In 1976 I began marketing a Hi Protein Weight Loss Meal Replacement product called Slender Now. It was better than my self created system and people got incredible results. Those who could not lose weight any other way saw dramatic results. Like losing 50lbs, 100 lbs or more. A buddy weighed 350 lbs and lost 75lbs in a few months.

People in my gyms who used the program got the best results.

As I mentioned previously, I have always had a weight problem. At 7 years of age I was awarded the dubious award of heaviest boy at our family reunion. At age 13 I started lifting weights and even though I only weighed 98lbs, I was soft, flabby and with a potbelly.

In high school, I continued to lift weights, was on the wrestling team, ran 2 miles every day and was still fat with big hips as one of my old school chums put it.  So my purpose here is to let all of those who have tried in vain to exercise and diet only to fall short, you are not alone.

We also discussed the loss of lean tissue. On typical diets that is the primary weight that is lost, lean tissue and water and very little fat at all. Why is this important. You want to lose fat. Fat is what causes heart attacks and other illnesses along with being unsightly.

Lean tissue on the other hand gives a man an athletic look and a woman curves and shape. Lean tissue also burns calories even at rest. The more lean tissue you have, the less chance of adding fat later on. And the faster you will lose the fat you have.

This also partially explains the yo-yo syndrome. As diets lose lean tissue, their bodies have a tendency to store more fat. Even if they lose weight, they look like smaller fat people. Also keep in mind that fat weights less than lean tissue.

Most importantly, if you lose too much lean tissue your body will turn to it’s own lean tissue for nourishment as with the fad liquid protein diets of the 1970s.

I recommend to my clients that they no only weight, but also measure themselves and take a before picture when they start their programs.  Also get a body fat analysis done. Most health clubs can do this for you and now even grocery stores like Publix have the Higi machines which take your blood pressure, pulse, heart rate, your weight, your body fat percentage and tell you what you should weight and what your ideal fat to lean tissue ratio should  be. I highly recommend these.

In part 2 we also discussed a dynamic fat burner that creates the necessary therogenic action you need to lose weight, fat weight.  It should be noted that this gently and safely stimulates the metabolism. Unlike the dangerous fat burners of the 1990s which used the aggressive and dangerous ephedra.

Another key to help those who want to lose those excess pounds and keep them off forever is a candida/parasite/toxin cleanser.  If you cave sweets you are no doubt loaded with candida albicans. This product neutrilizes those little rascals. Once again, if you have tried various programs to lose weight int he past and they failed, it is not your fault.

This product provides    state of the art cleansing, eliminates waste and toxins to produce a new  you on the inside. A toxic body is a sick body. When the body is in a toxic state, the metabolish is sluggish. A person is less energetic, less likely to exercise, and often overeats and eats the wrong foods.  Their digestive process is slowed and becomes increasingly inefficient.  at eliminating waste materials., which tends to accumulate in fat cells, block metabolic pathways and damage liver cells and damage liver cells and prohibits the process of losing excess weight.

This product was developed to lessen the body’s toxic load. It is a natural, high fiber, botanical formula for cleansing detoxification, purificiation and elimination. It helps to normalize the intestinal microenvirommment. It helps bind endotoxins and decreases fecal stagnation. It also helps to eliminate toxic and pathogenic factors from the gut and controls a leaky gut that allows toxic materials to enter the body through the intestinal tract.

This product can and does reduce unsightly abdominal bloating and the reduces the appearance of your waistline, looking smaller and trimmer., thereby supporting your weight management efforts. In addition, it protects the liver from a toxic overload of the very poisins which it detoxifies and in doing so  encourages the growth of healthy new liver cells, improving the overall function of the liver. And it contains a group of special  fatty acids and botanical agents which help eliminate harmful microorganisms, fungi such as candida albicans, and a wide assortment of toxic factors and system clogging debris.

People often ask me, “Tony, I am already eating a high fiber diet. Isn’t that enough?” The answer is no. Read through the above description again. There are no foods than can accomplish all this.  Before going on this product, I was eating high fiber foods and taking another brand of herbal supplement that purported to do the same thing.  No way. I got a complete cleansing with the product above. There is nothing else quite like it, anywhere.

This is me weighing in at 235 lbs some time ago struggling with another program and down from 255 lbs.

This is me in a picture taken last week with my weight now down to 181 lbs after being on this program for only 4 weeks. I lost 31 lbs, 35 total inches and 6  1/2 waistline inches.  

Success!!!! 181 lbs. This is the first time I have seen this weight in nearly 40 years. And I do workout all the time and watch what I eat.

How this system works…….

You take one or two bioengeneered meals per day.  This food provides 50% low-glycemic carbs, 30% biologically usable protein, and 20% essential fatty acids. These are the good fats everyone forgets about…and it shows.

Then you take the special thermogenic formula 2-3 times per day to gently and safely charge up your metabolism.

You take the herbal cleanser 1-2 times per day but especially before your main meal and before you go to bed at nigh with a large glass of water.

And you take a fat blocker drink before your main meal and as a inbetween snack. I take it twice a day and can’t be without it.  This is a delicious and as my wife says a “very refreshing” drink. Tastes like a thick slurpee. Only good for you. This combines with the herbal cleanser but most importantly gives fat a one way ticket out of your body.  This helps fat from being absorbed and also maintains blood sugar levels.

You eat one colorful meal per day.  A balanced meal and real foods; meat, fish, poultry, and fruits.

Drinks lots of water.

Diet Balm-This is a new product. If you have a lot of weight to lose you may still get hunger pains. This goes on like chapstick for men or lipstick for women. It kills your appetitite. One gentleman  started to use this product earlier this year. Weighed 320 lbs and lost 40 lbs in 2 months.

I have tried many diet programs. This one has been a joy to be on. Feel  great. Eat real foods and get rapid results. Doesn’t get any better than this.
