The “how to low-carb diet” video is now available!

If you have ever thought to yourself “I MUST LOSE WEIGHT”, but you have not had a lot of success with it, take a look at the low-carb approach, as described in this video:

In Exercise 3 we talked about food diaries and how they can help you gain control of your calorie intake. But for many people (me included!) it simply is not possible to run a calorie deficit every day with just a food diary.

What is working for me, in addition to a food diary, is a low-carb diet. For me, a low-carb diet has 3 big advantages:

  1. It cuts my appetite way back, so I experience many fewer hunger pangs and cravings,
  2. Now with my appetite under control, I can use a food diary and run a calorie deficit, and
  3. If I can run a calorie deficit, I do lose weight!

And I am able to lose weight fast – 20.4 pounds in 4 weeks, for example (to be fair, half of this is water weight, a nice side effect of low carb dieting).

If you would like to try a low-carb diet yourself, watch this video and then see:

“How can I help my mother lose weight” – a message from a concerned son

I received this message today from Jason:

Excited to track your progress! I need to find a way to coach my mom towards a similar weight loss approach. Any ideas?

Here is my response:

Well… let’s first understand that this is a little bit like asking an alcoholic to quit drinking – The alcoholic needs to make the decision to change. So how do we help your mother make the decision? One way might be to sit down with her and work together to make a list of how her life will be better if she loses weight. Maybe this process would help her see the advantages of losing weight.

Next, she may have been discouraged by attempts she has made in the past to lose weight, and they didn’t work. So it may seem impossible. One reason I am documenting everything on YouTube is so that other people can see a plan that really does work, and watch as the weight loss unfolds for a real person. This page lays it out:

Come lose weight yourself!

Hope this helps!
