Weight Loss Tips - Start Looking and Feeling Better The Smart Way
What is considered overweight?
The definition of obesity varies depending on what one reads, but in general, it is a chronic condition defined by an excess amount body fat. A certain amount of body fat is necessary for storing energy, heat insulation, shock absorption, and other functions.
The percentage of body weight that makes up this "essential fat" is around 4% of body weight for men and 10% for women. The normal amount of body fat (expressed as percentage of body fat) is between 25-30% in women and 18-23% in men. Older women may range from 23% to 35% and older men may range from 11% to 24%.
Weight is often relative to how you look and feel. If you eat a healthy diet and live a healthy lifestyle, you're on the right track! Keep up the good work!
"...Before I found this solution, I battled my excess weight the same way you are doing today - with supplements, diet pills, harsh work-out routines, and starvation diets - hoping against hope that my weight would permanently drop one day.
Unfortunately, I can tell you from experience that those solutions will not work; all they do is provide temporary weight loss. They do not go to the root of the problem and get rid of the weight permanently.
Today, instead of avoiding my reflection, I break into a great big SMILE whenever I see myself in the mirror! It is such a relief to see a thin "me" starting back, instead of a big belly, flabby skin, and stretch marks!...
...Trust me, I've been there. I tried everything, before I finally figured out how to slim down and stay down...
Chris Gibson, author of the book "Weight Loss By The Numbers"
Over the last 15 years, I have tried just about everything to lose weight and KEEP IT OFF. I think it's great that the FCC is now after all of the weight loss supplement companies and flat out liars that tell you, "You can take a pill and lose weight."
"...My problems with weight have defied every fad diet plan, weight loss supplement, fat catcher, point system, and ridiculous high-intensity workouts. I tried so hard to lose weight that it almost turned me into a pill-popping, ephedra-driven, compulsive-obsessive exercise freak!
There are too many doctors and too many people selling us on how to lose weight, when they were never one pound overweight themselves. There are too many options and too many people confused out there. They all want to tell us what to lose and how to lose it, but none of them deal with the common obstacles that stand in your way.

After ten years of constant emotional, physical, and psychological battles, I finally found a different and viable approach to this widespread problem. I must admit, I was very skeptical at first.
I didn't think I would EVER be able to lose the weight that had tormented me for so long and keep it off permanently. But, I desperately wanted to feel better about myself, I wanted THE FAT GONE - so, I gave it a try.
At the end of 3 weeks, I had lost 28 pounds and 3 pants sizes! When my friends and family finally saw me, their jaws dropped to the floor!..."

"...I have read and tried it all, Atkins, South Beach, and your program is so much easier
and works so much faster. It is not even really a diet. I have been overweight for 15 years
and this is the most weight I have ever lost and the best I have looked in quite a while...and
it only took a couple of weeks. I don't know if everyone you help gets results like this,
but I am very happy with your ebook. I thought I had heard it all but you put "taking care
of myself" into a new perspective. I also wanted you to know my blood pressure and cholesterol
has dropped tremendously as well. I don't know if its the weight loss or the PLAN
itself...but thank you for it ALL anyway!"
