Fast weight loss vs permanent weight lossWeight loss is so easy. Pick a weight loss diet and you will lose weight on it. But how much and for how long?
The dirty little (widely known) secret in the diet industry is that only rapid weight loss matters. People will always blame themselves when the diet fails them. That's because the failure feels so much like personal weakness.
Weight loss diets are supposed to be temporary. They restrict calories, sometimes to a very large degree. That cannot be maintained and what then?
There is a better way.
Try our Quick Start Guide. You can use it for a healthy start on your weight loss for 4 to 6 weeks. After that you will need to add in more food. But you should be in a position where you can be satisfied with food that is delicious without being appetizing.
We Can Help Anyone!It does not matter how bad your choices have been in the past
- a healthy lifestyle is within anyone's reach. We know what the
pitfalls are and we can help you adopt a lifestyle that will
permanently change the way think about nutrition. We can help anyone!
But, we can't help everyone. If you still think there is some easy solution out there that requires no effort on your part then nobody can really help you. They can take your money and offer some false promises, but they can't actually help you make a permanent change in your life. You are capable of leading a healthy lifestyle. And just like everything worthwhile in life, It is worth working for.
The fantasy of a magic pill or powder or injection is just that - a fantasy. If you want to believe in magic then you will believe in magic. But believing in it does not make it so.
You CAN have both rapid weight loss and permanent weight loss, but the only way to do that is to change your attitude about food. Changing the way you think about food will change the way your mind and your body respond. You can get out of the trap that appetizing (but unhealthy) food has put you into.
Our weight loss plan is designed for some rapid initial weight loss. But we manage the energy deficit and use your body's adaptation mechanism to your advantage. We can put you into a position that you have never been in before - where the decisions are finally, truly in your hands.
1.Appealling to or stimulating the appetite.
1. Highly pleasing or agreeable to the senses, especially of taste or smell.
2. Very pleasant; delightful.
Once upon a time there was a meal course designed to make the other courses more appealling. You ate it first and it was called the "appetizer". Its purpose was right there in the name - you were supposed to be hungrier after you ate it than you were before you ate it.
For food producers - be they packaged food manufacturers, fast food chains or casual dining restaurants - making ALL of their food products appetizing is just good business. Appetizing foods sell very well.
If you have a weight problem it is because you are OVERFED and UNDERNOURISHED. Food that has been engineered to be appetizing will make you overeat and the engineering process will make the food less nourishing.
There IS a difference between appetizing food and delicious food. Ask yourself this: Are you choosing to overeat or are the foods you're choosing making you overeat?
If you want to avoid the problems of appetizing foods, you should make as much of your food from scratch as possible. Click the link below to see some information about how you can add more home cooking to your diet.
When you eat out try to choose locally-owned and operated restaurants. They do not have large corporations behind them making a science out of hyper-appetizing all their products. Plus they are much more likely to make food from scratch. Don't be scared to ask how anything is made!

Every day there are news reports of new health advice, but how can you know if they're right? Doctor and epidemiologist Ben Goldacre shows us, at high speed, the ways evidence can be distorted, from the blindingly obvious nutrition claims to the very subtle tricks of the pharmaceutical industry.

Food companies are not out to get you. The hard truth is that they don't care about you at all. You are just a source of revenue. The best way for them to separate you from your money is to create ever more appetizing food.

Salt is SO bad for you. Or is it? Would it surprise you to know that there has actually never been a definitive link between sodium intake and hypertension? In fact, there is some indication that a low-sodium diet is more dangerous. Click here for the link to the article.
If you are like most, you do not want to see the disturbing particulars of how your food is produced. Well, big food companies have taken appalling liberties with that type of willful ignorance. Why don't you let 11-year-old Birke Baehr talk some sense to you about industrial farming. Click here to watch the video.
Claire first came to us in May 2012. (The "Before" picture above is from March of that year.) She is now down nearly 50 pounds! How did she do it? "I gave up on the easy answers and decided to take control of my life. I always thought it would be impossible to permanently change the way I eat. I was wrong! The good people at Nutritional Health Center showed me how to get out from underneath the influence of highly appetizing foods. I am not even tempted anymore. I am so proud of myself!" And we are so proud of you, Claire!
Judy lost her job, got depressed and gained a lot weight. Her husband encouraged her to come to us and we showed her how she could follow our program but stretch out the medications to fit in their tight budget. After her initial visit she managed to stretch out her medication for over two months while still making the dietary changes . As of October 2012, she is down 14 pounds! "The most valuable thing they gave me was information and they never charged me for it."
