The low-fat, high-carbohydrate diet sounds great in principle, but it simply doesnâ€™t work. The standard low-fat, high-grain diet is biochemically flawed; it doesnâ€™t prevent weight gain but actually causes it. After decades of fat-phobia, we have witnessed the weight of the American man skyrocket. Today, over 68% of American men over the age of 25 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.
Last year 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 30-40 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 isn’t 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.
