Solutions to simple problems are solved by following steps like assembling a bicycle. Complicated problems are merely many simple problems strung together, like going to the moon. Complex problems such as raising a child or making a marriage work don’t have defined solutions to achieve their goals – they’re trial and error propositions.
Losing weight is a complex problem. We have a multitude of opinions and gut feelings that occasionally lead us to temporary success, but it ultimately results in frustration and the accumulation of more excess weight. However, if we focus on reducing our excess weight, then the nature of the problem shifts immediately from a complex problem to a simple problem. If we know what causes excess weight, what enables it, and what eliminates it, then we have a simple problem: stopping excess weight from accumulating!
However, knowing in general what causes, enables, and eliminates excess weight has no value to you. It’s only when you understand how YOU cause it and how YOU enable it that you’ll be able to address it. Our system of cycles and phases doesn’t require you to do anything you don’t already do. Success comes through weekly weigh-ins and discussions that guide you to your weight loss goals.
Fitness gyms, personal trainers, nutritionists, and doctors who are on the frontlines to help us achieve, maintain, or regain our health must be paired with something else to realize significant reductions. It’s that “something else” that we help you identify.
Weight reduction is an elusive, difficult, and for many, insurmountable task. The challenges are the lack of a clear path and mastering both reduction and maintenance skills. These skills are built through knowledge and practice, and once learned, will serve you well for the rest of your life. The tendency to overeat is a constant factor that will be greatly reduced as you build habits during both weight reduction and weight maintenance phases.
In the 1950s, one of the experiments to understand the effects of stress consisted of delivering a 15-second electric shock to a caged animal. During the initial shock, the laboratory animal leaped, jumped, and tried to escape. Over time, it learned it couldn’t escape and stopped trying. When the experimenters then provided an escape route to the animal during the shock, it didn’t attempt to leave. Psychologists coined the term “learned helplessness” to describe the effects of repeated failure, its most notable characteristic being giving up.
Although our methods are far from shocking, our claims are true: it’s not a scam and there is no “catch.” You’ll finally learn how to lose weight and keep it off. Come see for yourself!
