Lose Fat, Not Faith!
“…physical transformation starts with a goal in mind, but along the way you realize it is the journey and not the destination…” (Jeremy Likness, “Lose Fat, Not Faith”)
I really like Jeremy Likness’ “Lose Fat, Not Faith”.
There are numerous reasons why this so. For instance, it’s very well written, it flows nicely, it contains a ton of very useful cutting edge dieting and weight loss information. As a teaching and learning tool, it can carry its weight against publication I’ve read.
But that’s not the main reason I feel so strongly about it. Nope, I like “Lose Fat, Not Faith” because it discusses something most diets skip altogether, or give only passing mention.
And what’s that?
It’s the “personal development” aspect of healthy living. It’s about…
- Overcoming your fears and insecurities in order to succeed.
- Tapping into your inner strengths to make a personal commitment, not to a diet — but to a new and healthy way of living.
- Setting goals tied directly to mind, body, and spirit (there is a powerful spiritual element to “Lose Fat, Not Faith”) and then determining”why” that goal is important. This is a critical step. If you can’t come up with a powerful reason “why” your goal of losing weight is important, it’s unlikely you will attain that goal.
“Along the way, I found another “why for losing the fat: control. I was obviously out of control, because my mind was so weak that it let cravings for foods control my health. This wasn’t fair to my children who looked to me as a role model, or my wife who had committed to spend her life with me.” (Jeremy Likness, “Lose Fat, Not Faith”)
- Maintaining a positive “I can” attitude through thick and thin.
- Achieving a balance between your life, your family, and your responsibilities and a healthy lifestyle.
This isn’t all theoretical, of course. Jeremy’s “been there, done that, and bought the t-shirt.” He’s battled with an expanding waistline and “shrinking” jeans. He’s was unable to bend over and tie up his shoes. He has struggled, as anyone who makes this commitment inevitably will. But Jeremy perseveres, and he does so gloriously.
Sometimes, it’s a little difficult to get out of your comfort zone because you know what dieting entails. That’s why inevitably all diets fail, and the weight comes back. Jeremy’s publication prepares you for a lifestyle change, so you can embrace it, rather than avoid it.
Of course, this publication covers all the nutritional bases. For instance, 2/3 of this 350 page e-book is dedicated to educating you on nutrition and exercise. And there’s no doubt… Jeremy knows his stuff! There’s lots of good stuff here; on caloric cycling, portion sizes… you name it, it’s in here.
So who’s this volume for?
Although I think everyone will benefit from this publication, it’s probably not for those of you who want a very short and precise “eat this”, “do that” diet. If you’re looking more for a structured diet plan, check out Tom Venuto’s Burn the Fat program, reviewed here!
On the other hand, it is ideal for anyone for anyone who has struggled with motivation, with dedication, or with fear. It’s for anyone who has not yet been able to draw the internal strength necessary to realize their health and fitness dreams.
If this is you, I highly recommend this publication. You will not be disappointed. And, in the EXTREMELY unlikely event that you are, your purchase is protected with a 60-day completely honored money-back guarantee. So you really can’t lose.
