I took a big, huge, massive sigh of relief today.
Finallyâ€¦ the FDA did something right when it comes to bogus â€œmagicâ€ diet-fatburn pills.
A panel of experts reviewed Vivus Inc.â€™s new wonder-pill â€œQnexaâ€ today.
They gave it the thumbs-down.
Ohâ€¦ pesky little reported side-effects likeâ€¦ (are you ready for this?)â€¦
Increased Risk of Suicide (yikes!)
You knowâ€¦ â€œminorâ€ stuff like that.
GEEZ. What the hell are these drug companies thinking?
Quick-Fix = Big-Bucks
So, I am going to believe that YOU are much smarter than the morons who tried to get this drug past the FDA.
Iâ€™m going to assume you want a solution to this obesity pandemic and your own fatloss issues (if you have them) that do NOT involve risking your life for a thinner you.
â€œOh, Margeâ€¦ she looks so thin in her casketâ€¦â€
THIS IS NOT A GOOD EULOGY! : )
Listen: I get it. I really do.
Iâ€™m an athlete and we are always looking for tricks to help increase our performance. But your body is simply too smart for these fatloss-pills people are trying to pass off as â€œa break-through medical discovery.â€
Nonsenseâ€¦ more like heart-breaking medical waste of time.
One dayâ€¦ perhaps even in my lifetimeâ€¦ someone will invent a chemical that actually works to shed bodyfat without harming the body. That will be a great day for all of us.
Even so, I can all but promise you that this chemical will have its nasty side-effects and/or be limited in duration or power.
Nothing, repeat NOTHING you can pop in your mouth will give you the JOY that managing your dietplan and bodyweight can give you.
Itâ€™s one of the greatest feelings in the world.
And hereâ€™s a fantastic clue for you: The reason we want to be thin is because of the FEELING it gives us. Most everything we do is based on feelings.
Quick-fixes negate the most powerful thing about feelings: Earning the right to have them!
Think of it this way: Would you feel more alive and powerful if you climbed a mountain or if you took a helicopter ride to the summit?
Sure, the helicopter is easyâ€¦ but which is more personally rewarding?
Think of your own body transformation goals as your personal mountain to climb.
No helicoptersâ€¦ just really good guides (I volunteer) and solid climbing tools (like a great real-world dietplan, solid workouts that work WITH your schedule, and realistic but exciting goals.)
Your goals will become your base camps along your summit of your personal journey to the best you possible.
Color me silly, but I think that sounds FAR more empowering and rewarding that popping pills.
As you probably know I wrote one of the top books in the world on â€œreal-worldâ€ weighttloss (spelled that way so the spambox wonâ€™t eat your emailâ€¦ : ) I made this dietary System as easy as possibleâ€¦ but NO plan is â€œeasyâ€ and there is NO quick-fixes out there without serious pricetags.
That said, I have some â€œrebel tricksâ€ to share with you todayâ€¦ and they wonâ€™t put you six feet under before your time.
Just click on the page below and then click on â€œArticlesâ€â€¦ then youâ€™ll see it. Itâ€™s the first article, â€œ3 Diet Secrets Revealedâ€.
You canâ€™t sell this stuff in a bottleâ€¦ but it works to get the bodyfat off and keep it off.
Donâ€™t Quitâ€¦ Get Fit.

P.S. If you pick up my dietplan youâ€™ll find in the Memberâ€™s Area three supplements that actually DO work to help you burn-off-fatâ€¦ but they do not work like magic. They work like theyâ€™re supposed to: Realistically, and without harming your body. I take them. So should you.
