If you're thinking about using diet pills, 'fad' diets or any other product to lose weight, I'm extremely relieved that you've found my blog because not only will my story shock you, it'll almost certainly save your health, your money as well as a lot of time and heart ache.
I'll tell you exactly why over a 4 month period I tried but was forced to give up with Hoodia, the Atkins Diet, low fat diets and a range of other plans... and how I finally managed to lose 20lbs in 28 Days with a unique system called 'Fat Loss 4 Idiots'.
My name is Sandy Johnson and like so many people, I spent months desperately trying to lose weight. I never used to have issue with it at all because I regularly swam, cycled and was generally very active.
However, in January 2008, after being a work at home mum for so many years (with quite a lot of time on my hands!) I started working for a local charity. Even though I enjoyed it, the problem was I didn't have any time to keep myself slim anymore.
The Inevitable Started To Happen...
I slowly began to gain weight and due to lack of exercise and stress eating, I gradually put on 25 pounds over the course of 8 weeks and things didn't get any better from there.
After a few months the work eased off slightly and I actually did have the chance to start swimming again, which I hoped would help me lose a little weight. However, after trying on my old swim suit and standing in front of the mirror as a 'confidence test', what I discovered was horrific. I looked repulsive. My belly fat was hanging out and my thighs looked enormous. 'Thunder Thighs' I named myself!
That was the point when I realized I had to do something about it; and by means that avoided exercise at all costs!I Tried Hoodia & Failed...
At the time, Hoodia was the 'in thing' to do and after speaking to three of my friends who had had moderate success with it, I decided to give it a go.
At first it worked out reasonably well and I began to lose a few pounds each week; and although that wasn't exactly something to get too excited about, at least it was a start. And any 'start' was good!
However, after a few weeks, things began to go downhill. One of the major issues was that I was spending so much money on Hoodia pills. I was going back to their website what seemed like every two minutes to purchase yet more bottles because it seemed I needed up to 2500mg per day for it to have any real effect.
In fact, I was working my way through hundreds of dollars which was becoming a problem, especially with 2 kids. This was the point where I realized I had to stop.
I Then Tried The Atkins Diet But Was Forced To Give It Up...
After only 14 days on the Atkins Diet I began to feel unhealthy and extremely ill presumably because of the high levels of protein that I was consuming. Even with no medical expertise at all, I recognized that my digestive system was running into problems and for some reason the diet was also bringing on terrible migraines.
The most worrying thing of all though was that in the short time that I was following it, my cholesterol had skyrocketed and after getting a friendly warning from my doctor, and deciding that the pain and suffering I was experiencing wasn't worth it compared to the amount of weight I was losing, I quit.
I then tried a range of low fat diets plans such as the Scarsdale and Lemonade diet but because the suggested calorie intake was almost ridiculously low, I became incredibly weak and felt like I was going to fall over all the time. I soon realized that if I was actually going to lose weight and keep it off for any length of time, it just wasn't realistic.
Eventually, I found something that worked...
Having spent so much time, money and energy desperately trying to succeed with diets and plans that in the end had very little effect on my weight was a big regret. However, it all changed with the next diet I tried called Fat Loss 4 Idiots.
Personally, I had never heard of it before and due to my recent experiences, I was initially a little dubious. However, after reading some extremely complimentary reviews and learning that the cost was very low compared to some of the others I was considering, I decided to give it a shot.
What seemed to be so different with this program was that a major consideration was not only weight loss but also health. I learned some astonishing reasons why 97% of diets will always fail overtime and how they can make you seriously ill.
More importantly, however, I discovered 10 rules for fast fat loss, how to make your diet work with your daily routine and also how to manipulate your metabolism into successfully shedding the pounds by eating more that 3 meals each day.
Here's why I recommend it...
The reason why I would recommend Fat Loss 4 Idiots to anyone is because I've been following their plan for 28 days now and the results have been almost unbelievable.
Although I haven't lost weight as fast as the 9lbs every 11 days that is claimed on the website, I have managed to drop 20 lbs in just under a month; and I'm sure you'll agree that is pretty astonishing, especially when you consider I haven't had to alter my lifestyle in anyway - even with the kids.
Both my excess belly and thigh fat have gone a long way to disappearing and I'm almost at the stage of being able to get back into my dreaded swimsuit again!
In my opinion, this is way more superior and far more effective than any of these other diets I tried. Obviously, different things work for different people but it has worked extremely well for me and the genial part is you simply eat normal food that you can buy from your local store. They tell you what to eat. You eat it - and you lose weight! What could be simpler? You certainly don't have to order special foods from a website which was expensive and a real pain with the other ones I tried.
Anyway, I hope you've found this information useful whatever your situation because if I had known about Fat Loss 4 Idiots a few months back, I would have lost my excess weight ages ago without wasting my time and money with everything else. Anyway, I wish you every success!
