Big Fat Mistake 6:
You Are Listening to False Prophets
The low-fat, high-carbohydrate diet sounds great in principle, but it simply doesn’t work. The standard low-fat, high-grain diet is biochemically flawed; it doesn’t prevent weight gain at all—it actually causes it. After decades of fat phobia, we have witnessed the weight of the American skyrocket. Today, over 68% of American men over the age of 25 and more than 64% of adult women are overweight or obese. Clearly, conventional wisdom’s diet isn’t working, so we seek other solutions.
Enter the fad diet and supplement companies. Pushing their magic “fat-blaster pill” or “exercise in a bottle” miracle potion, these vultures will tell you anything to make a sale, and tend to only reference “research” when it suits business. This presents another problem: any company can find or conduct a study that supports almost any premise (which the media is eager to sensationalize and distort). Their goal is not to educate you, but to condition you as a consumer.
Recently I met an extremely successful diet and weight loss “guru.” His books, supplements, meal replacement shakes, and exercise courses promised immediate and lifelong weight loss and muscle gains. But there was a problem: he was easily 30 to 40 pounds overweight, sporting a double chin, chipmunk cheeks, and a beer belly. Having pawned his system to hundreds of thousands of willing customers, one of the most successful diet and weight loss gurus in the world is…fat. He’s a swindler, not an expert.
Stop listening to the peddlers of conventional nonsense and the wily, desperate gurus. You need to try something different.
The primary goal of the Fat-Burning Man is to educate you in the process of losing fat – without bias, conjecture, or ulterior motive – and to lift the fog of confusion about nutrition and training that may have hindered your progress in the past. It’s fun, it’s straightforward, and it WORKS. Look forward to being leaner, stronger, and healthier than you’ve ever been.
