 'Weight management and Weight reduction'

Revolutionising Weight Reduction

According to a recent study by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly 40 million Americans - or 19.8 percent of the population - are classified as obese, up from only 12 percent in 1991. This staggering increase in obesity parallels a rise in diabetes and a number of other obesity-related diseases. In fact, obesity-related diseases have been found to be the second-leading cause of premature death in America, and the implications of those diseases threaten to overwhelm the healthcare system, according to the CDC.

In short, America is getting bigger, and it certainly isn't getting any healthier. It might not come as a surprise to many that obesity and weight, in most cases, are diet-related. As we "super-size" our fast food value meals, we're also super-sizing our waistlines.

The good news is, a new book, "It Only Makes Sense - A Simple Guide to Weight Reduction," by author T.A. Smith, may finally give Americans who truly want to lose weight the ammunition they need to succeed. Smith is not a doctor, nutritionist or fitness trainer - he's just an average guy who found himself tipping the scales after a holiday season, and made a bet with a similarly-rotund friend over who could lose the most weight in 25 days.

"Long story short - I blew away my friend, and after two months, I was
down four sizes and 35 pounds," said Smith.

At the heart of "A Simple Guide to Weight Reduction" is creating a weight-loss plan. Although many Americans have unsuccessfully tried to create plans to lose pounds, Smith offers a formula that is guaranteed to work - and, most importantly, is possible for just about anyone.

"If you know how the game works - and keep track of how many calories you eat compared to how many you burn off - you will lose weight," said Smith. "It's that simple."

Smith doesn't advocate any rigorous exercise programs, diet supplements or complicated menus - just common sense, coupled with the know-how to get results. However, he noted, exercise will obviously multiply the results of the program.

The book doesn't sugarcoat anything - from the start, it informs the reader that weight loss isn't easy. It requires willpower and discipline, along with the know-how.
"If you're serious about losing weight and willing to commit, then do it," said Smith. "If not, then put the book back on the shelf, or give it to someone else to try."
