When Diet and Exercise are Not Enough: Roadblocks to Weight Loss

I’m very excited to announce that I’m halfway finished with my first book When Diet and Exercise are Not Enough: A Step-by-step Plan to Eliminate Roadblocks to Weight Loss.

Like most people, you likely have been frustrated in your attempts to lose weight in the past. You have now found a solution based on the best nutritional knowledge and science I have learned over the last ten years.

With my plan, you will have the tools to overcome the obstacles that are preventing you from successfully losing weight. The path to your slender, healthy, energetic self is not impossible or outrageously difficult, but it requires that you consistently follow a plan for a period of time.

Have you struggled with…

  • Every imaginable weight loss program
  • Yo-yo dieting
  • Fad diets
  • Losing weight only to gain it back
  • Emotional eating
  • Unstoppable cravings
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Thyroid Issues

Have you tried too many rigid diets that involve…

  • Counting calories
  • Counting carbs
  • Fasting
  • Measuring your food
  • Eating frozen and pre-packaged nutrient deficient food
  • Memorizing and counting points

There are lots of ways to lose weight, but I’ve found that diets and fasts don’t work in the long-term because fasting and low calorie (nutrient deficient) diets cause your metabolism to slow and you regain the lost weight plus more when you’re done with the diet. Years and years of this abuse contribute to a slowed metabolism.

You must adopt lifelong healthy eating habits if you want to be slim and healthy. First, you must start with the basics. I give you some Quick Start rules, tips on how to have effective eating habits, how to conquer cravings, the best diet to lose weight (Modern Paleo, of course), fitness, and stress reduction techniques. These tips are all vital to lose weight and keep it off! But what if these aren’t working?

When Diet and Exercise are Not Enough

Trouble Losing Weight 640x425

Eight-five percent of people that are overweight do not overeat! In fact, many dieters undereat and are super dedicated to every diet they try…but to no avail. They are unaware of the underlying causes of their inability to lose weight and what caused them to gain the weight in the first place. I call these roadblocks to weight loss. And I don’t understand why more people aren’t talking about them.

This is why I felt compelled to write When Diet and Exercise are Not Enough: A Step-by-step Plan to Eliminate Roadblocks to Weight Loss. I was inspired to write it when my diet and exercise routine were not shedding the pounds like they had in the past. You always hear, ‘Eat less, exercise more,’ but it reached a certain point where this mantra was not working for me. At one point, I was going to bed hungry and working out 8-10 hours a week. And I wasn’t losing weight!!! What the hell was going on? Determined, I began researching to find out why.

Conventional thinking around weight management has always hovered around the obvious – diet & exercise. The ‘calories in, calories out’ model as now been proven without a doubt to be only a small part of the picture. There is far more going on that just energy intake and energy expenditure. Diet and exercise are important components to lose weight, but one must consider how foods affect us hormonally.

If diet and exercise are not working for you, it can be attributed to many different reasons. Like most people, you likely have been frustrated in your attempts to lose weight. For years, I was missing key factors that can make it almost impossible to lose weight. I’ve turned them into a step-by-step solution based on the latest nutritional knowledge and science.


Eating a healthy diet and exercise are merely one aspect of weight loss. Yet, this is the primary focus of most weight loss and diet programs. They are missing major pieces of the puzzle. This is the primary reason most people drop out of these programs frustrated without meeting their weight loss goals.

Of course, a major part of losing weight is about choosing the right foods and sticking to a sensible exercise routine, but it is far from that simple. The weight loss options you have tried are doomed to fail if you have not addressed the underlying biochemical reasons you are overeating or your body is resistant to weight loss.

If you’re over 35, you’re more likely to be experiencing roadblocks to weight loss. Hormonal changes, nutrient deficiencies and a few decades of toxin build up begin to take their toll on the biological processes responsible for metabolism. And when your metabolism takes a nosedive, it becomes increasingly difficult to lose weight and keep it off.

Most importantly, I reveal the secret to how you can increase your metabolism permanently! I began using a program to improve my overall health, but realized that it could also be a tool in losing weight because it heals your thyroid and other biological processes that correct your metabolism. Your thyroid sets your metabolic rate and determines whether or not you burn off the calories you eat. Don’t worry, this program does not involve taking thyroid hormones. It is a program that heals your thyroid. I cannot keep my secret any longer!

This might sound really complicated, but I promise you it isn’t. It’s certainly easier than spending years unsuccessfully losing weight by enduring restrictive diets and punishing workouts to no avail! That sounds a lot harder to me. With this book, you will be able to easily troubleshoot the problems preventing you from dropping the pounds. Just follow my directions and you will see results.

15 habits of effective eatersMy soon-to-be released book, When Diet and Exercise are Not Enough: A Step-by-step Plan to Eliminate Roadblocks to Weight Loss, details my simple step-by-step plan, beginning with the most common roadblocks, to uncover why you have not been successful in your weight loss efforts. It’s a valuable tool you need to correct biological and hormonal problems that will prevent you from losing weight no matter how hard you try.

I’m very excited to share my weight loss journey with you and reveal the tools I used to finally, and healthily, lose the weight for good. It took me years to figure out why I wasn’t losing weight and what I was doing wrong. Stop the cycle of yo-yo dieting and figure out the pieces of the puzzle you’re missing.

You will be thrilled to learn that you can revive the metabolism of your youth, regain the body you had in high school, and enjoy optimum health while doing it! Weight loss should not have to be difficult. I’ll show you how.
