Most all diets say the same thing. Eat the right foods, at the right times, exercise, use a fat burner/metabolizer to help burn the fat off faster, but I choose these tapes, because I knew that I first had to battle the subconscience urges. I've been on almost every diet known to man - and have lost 50-60 lbs twice, but gained it back also. Now I'm having a problem turning down food, snacks, fast food stops after work, fast food stops when I don't feel like cooking, fast food stops or processed food because it was too hot to cook or turn on the oven, etc. I came up with a million and one excuses. Plus I hate exercising!!! So, I had to get my subconscious under control. They give an example in the quick start tape. "You eat a bag of popcorn. You ate the entire bag. You only had plans of eating a certain amount when you started, but you've eaten the entire bag, before you realize it" I was wondering if they were taking about me. At first, I had it under control. I used to put it in a small bowl, then gave the rest to my husband. One day, I ate the entire bag (my husband was at work), and DIDN'T realize I was eating it all, while I was eating. That's your subconscious, eating out of habit!!! Not because you're hungry.
Before I started with the tapes (9 days ago, I lost 6 lbs so far), I had exercise video tapes- only used them once!! Don't forget I hate to exercise!! I had brought fat burning tablets from another co. I lost 4 lbs over a period of 8 months. I couldn't get my appetite under control. I'm considering buying the fat burners and the exercise tapes from Provida.com, though. The tapes are labeled, "I hate to exercise." Were they thinking about me when they make thise tapes? :)
Good luck in your weight lost. I hope this helps.
