... Then Just Stay Fat.

For a couple of years, Shannon Sorrels has wanted to put out a book about fitness and weight management, a book that’s entertaining, motivating and a tad bit pointed, sort of a Dave Barry and Erma Bombeck meets Dr. Oz and Bob Greene -- definitely not your traditional this-is-how-to-lose-weight manual.A multi-degreed certified personal trainer and owner of an award-winning fitness training and nutrition studio in Phoenix, Sorrels has heard every excuse for not exercising and committing to a weight-management program: I’m too busy I’ve been out of town TV was good last night I had to go out to dinner a lot this week I’ve been sick The conference lunch had bad food choices My job is stressful I’m PMSing I’ve been busy I’m backed up (and I don’t mean scheduling) They made me a cake I’m too busy I need wine I’m genetically fat My family is sick I’m allergic to South African bee pollen My car is at the shop My dog is sick These are new shoes My metabolism thinks I’m starving My child failed a test Dunkin' Donuts had a sale I usually weigh-in in the morning The soft serve yogurt with Oreo toppings was for calcium I’m too busy My cat is sick Beer helps me relax My tree fell over I forgot to wash my workout clothes I’m tired These are different clothes My pinky nail fell off My fridge died; I had to eat it all The moon is out of phase with Jupiter I’m too busyAnd to the people who made those excuses, she has wanted to say, “…then just stay fat.”Sorrels knows of what she speaks. The word “diet” has been part of her vocabulary since she was 9 years old. She spent many years upset, depressed, frustrated and confused. She lost weight and then gained it back. She read books, listened to tapes and joined programs. She fumbled around until she figured it out, and when she did she changed careers and started Physix.She also found a way to share her thoughts and frustrations: writing.This book isn’t a step-by-step weight-loss or fitness plan. There already are plenty of those, and Sorrels doesn’t agree with most of them anyway.Instead, it is intended to motivate and entertain, spur some heated debates – and maybe even put an end to all of the excuses.

I'm not such of a reader but I went to Shannon's web site and watched her videos, they were very funny so I thought her book would be funny as well and it was.There is nothing in this book which doesn't make common sense and it comes to the basic of eating less will bring your weight down, which is true. Add patience and persistence and you will be back to where you want to be.Do you need to pay a fortune for that though? According to Shannon, probably not.Advertisers are very clear of what they want: your money! And they will make you believe anything, even that the magic pill exists. They know for a fact that overweight people are an easy target and it is really easy to dupe them. I am not saying that they are stupid or anything but more likely they are sensitive to others' opinions and miracle solutions because dep down they don't want to be like this. Who wouldn't want to loose 50 pounds in a week or 2 after all?Fortunately Shannon is here to open your eyes and do the math for you: eat less! To loose 50 pounds you need a 500 calorie / day deficit which will lead to a pound / week lost over time. It still will take you 50 weeks, not 2. Physics laws apply everyone, magic pills or not. Add to that some physical activities and you may be able to reduce the time it takes to shrink a bit.Antoine Lavoisier (1743-1794) is often quoted for saying, "Nothing is lost, nothing is created, everything is transformed." No miracles!America is sick and has been for a while now costing billions of dollars every year to American citizens (thanks to fast food restaurants and easy access to everything either from home or cars).
