Weight Loss Bootcamp Extreme
Dieting is for Wimps; THIS is how to lose weight.
How many times have you heard that? Plenty, I bet. Maybe not directly to your face but behind your back, certainly. Well, this is a turning point for you. A year from now, comments and jibes like this will be a thing of the past.
Things are going to change for you. A lot. And that’s because you’ve shown the strength of character to enroll in the Weight Loss Boot Camp Extreme. (I’m going to call it the WLBCE from now on.)
This is yet another book on how to lose weight. And my guess is that it’s not the first one you’ve bought. There are probably hundreds of thousands of books on the market about losing weight.
They all have a specific approach or agenda; the Cabbage Diet, the Cambridge Diet, The Atkins Diet, The Low GI Diet, The F Plan, Points, Syns, Red Days, Green Days. It goes on and on. And you may well have tried some of these diets yourself. And I’m guessing they didn’t work for you. Frankly, I’m not surprised.
Losing weight is difficult. You know it and I know it. If you’ve tried dieting by eating low calorie foods and keeping track of daily points and the like, then you’ll know that it doesn’t really work. OK, it works for some people, the ones they show in the TV and magazine ads, but for the majority of fat people, they might lose a few pounds then, after a few months, the pound starts to go on again. Before long, they’re back to where they started. YoYo dieting. We all know about it.
If this all sounds depressingly familiar to you, then what I’ve got here for you will be something of a revelation. This book is not about what you eat, it’s about HOW you eat.
It’s about your attitude to food and about the place that food has in your life. We’re going to change your current approach to eating and you’re going to lose weight as a result.
Before we start though, I’m going to go over a few basic principles, facts and ideas that, as a fat person, you probably already know, but it doesn’t hurt to be reminded of them, does it?
First, I’m going to talk about getting prepared to lose weight. This is a big project you’ve embarked upon here, and I really want you to think of it as an irreversible project that’s going to encompass all aspects of your life. A lot is going to change in your life. But you needn’t be scared, it’s all for the good. People don’t generally like change. They feel comfortable with the familiar.
Even if it’s ultimately going to kill them. So, you’re going to need to embrace change; you need to get yourself in the right frame of mind. And, even more importantly, you need to be able to remain in that frame of mind for a long period.
This idea is central to the whole WLBCE process. What you’re going to be doing is challenging yourself, getting yourself in the frame of mind when you actually want to push yourself just that bit further. And taking pleasure when you are able to use your mind to control your body’s natural behavior.
Second, I’m going to point out a fact that is central to the process of losing weight and yet seems to be rarely discussed. It’s the fact that losing weight is one of the few things in this world that you absolutely have to do it on your own. Ultimately, whatever you choose to put in
your mouth is up to you. Nobody is going to be standing over you 24/7 keeping an eye on everything you eat. There are thousands of weight loss programs that promise “we’ll help you all the way” or “we can do it together”. They’re all empty words I’m afraid. So, I’m going to say it again – You, and you alone are
responsible for what you eat. This project is totally down to you. So, the question is:
I know what I’d want to do in your position and I wouldn’t have bought this book if I planned to fail so: keep in mind that this is all down to you.
You, and you alone, are responsible for yourself and your food intake.
Get that idea firmly embedded in your head and you’ll be off to a good start. And there’s a bonus: when, in a year’s time, you’re able to congratulate yourself on the huge progress you’ve made, you’ll also have the satisfaction of knowing that it was all down to you and you alone.
You don’t need online slimming clubs, special diet cards, special diet foods or any of their other stuff that the weight loss industry keeps throwing at you. Nope, you’ll have done it all by yourself. And that’s got to make you feel good.
Third Hunger. You’re going to be hungry a lot of the time. And you’re not going to like it. Let’s think about what losing weight actually involves. From a physiological point of view, the fat in your body is a reserve of energy that your body has stored as a contingency against times when no food is available.
For millions of years, while our ancestors lived on the plains of Africa and all the way up to the mid twentieth century, this physiological strategy worked perfectly. The problem is, in our modern world, food is always available and so this admirable evolutionary insurance policy backfires on us rather dramatically!
In order to lose weight, we need to use up these stored fat reserves. Your body does this automatically when no food, or insufficient food, goes into the stomach. So that’s what you’re going to have to make happen. There’s no way round it. You’re going to have to put your body into starvation mode so that the fat reserves get used up. It’s a pretty simple concept but it’s not easy to accomplish when food is so readily available everywhere.
So, if you follow the guidelines in this book, you’re going to be hungry and you’re not going to like it. But we can make hunger easier to bear if you approach it in the right way.
Here’s an idea. Whenever you’re hungry, think of it as the signal your body sends to your brain when it’s burning up some of your excess fat. It’s not that exactly, but if it can help maintain your motivation then I don’t see any harm in kidding ourselves a little, do you?
But my much more serious recommendation is as follows. As I’ve said, this is your project and you’re not going to fail yourself. Rather than thinking of hunger as something you can’t cope with, accept it with a grim determination that it’s simply a new sensation that you haven’t had for a while. After all, millions of people in the Third World are hungry all the time.
And millions of Muslims all over the world don’t allow anything to pass their lips during the hours of daylight during Ramadan. Pit yourself against your hunger rather than succumbing to it and dipping into the cookie jar when the going gets tough. You are in control here.
Celebrate that fact. When you can go to bed at night and look back on a day of resisting hunger pangs rather than giving in to them, you’ll feel a real sense of achievement. You’ll feel empowered to do it again tomorrow. And if you can do it one day, you can do it the next day too, and the day after that.
Compare that feeling of achievement to the sense of misery and failure you get when you eat a packet of cookies all in one go. You know what I’m talking about.
Fourth I’m going to explain what this book is about. It’s about your attitude to food. I want you to think about how your present attitude to food has got you to the position you’re in today.
Overweight (or fat, as I prefer to say). Now, obviously I’m going to have to generalize here because I don’t know you personally. And I don’t want you to take this as personal criticism, I’m simply pointing out the facts.
Fat people don’t really care much about what they eat. Most junk food and fast food is fair game; burgers, fries, pizza, chocolate, kebabs, wraps, bagels, muffins, chips, subs, chicken nuggets. There’s a lot of it out there and you can get any of it, anywhere, anytime for just a few bucks.
What I want you to develop is a measure of respect for your body and what you put into it. That way you’ll be able to alter your approach to eating.
In a while I’m going to walk you through the ten most effective ways of achieving this. It’s not easy and it requires a degree of intelligent thought and a lot of motivation but stick with me and you’ll be surprised at what you can achieve.
Having said that, some of my strategies require little more than a simple adjustment to your daily routine so don’t be too alarmed.
Fifth Implementing what’s in this book. I’m going to give you ten things that you need to change in your daily life. Now, I’m not suggesting that you change them all simultaneously. Making one change is difficult enough, so ten in one go is asking rather a lot.
You need to choose how you go about this. You should aim to accomplish all the changes within a month or so. Losing weight, particularly a lot of weight, is a long-term project. Don’t fool yourself into thinking you’re going to get thin in a few weeks. It could take well over a year to get to where you want to be.
After all, you’ve been eating wrongly for many years to get to where you are now so it’s not going to be an overnight job. If you’ll forgive the comparison, think of yourself as one of those giant oil tankers that takes ten miles to bring to a stop or to turn round.
Are you ready for this? Let’s go!
