Here is an interesting question, ‘Can we eat more and lose weight?’
I am not talking about eating nothing but low calorie greens. I am asking if we could eat meat, fat, dairy, sugar, and processed junk, a.k.a. standard American diet, and lose weight.
The conventional wisdom says ‘No, we can’t’.
I say, ‘Yes, we can’.
For decades, when it came to fighting obesity, restrictions were the name of the game. Restrict everything: cut portions, cut calories, and avoid foods. The American Heart Association had put a VERBOTEN sign on the entire food group, fats, for crying out loud!
How does that advice hold up? According to the data, not so well… to put it mildly. Over the past thirty years, the obesity rate in the United States has more than tripled, from 11% to 38%.
It is obvious that the “Eat Less” mantra does not work. Isn’t it the fate of all ill-advised prohibitions? Yet, the health gurus keep chanting it. In spite of the clear clinical data, the health industry continues to use restrictions as a treatment of choice. Maybe there used to be an excuse for that - there was nothing else to offer.
I’ve invented a method for weight loss that disrupts the old dogma. It is called Eating Applied (EatApp for short). Its premise is simple: Eat More - Lose Weight.
EatApp does not restrict anything. Quite the opposite, it recommends you spend as much time eating as possible. The emphasis of EatApp is not on what you eat, but on how you eat it. My method works to focus your attention on food and the actual process of eating.
EatApp is designed to avoid the noxious side effects of the old school of weight loss: hunger, deprivation, and stress. Unlike the restrictive methods, it works in accord with the physiology of digestion and metabolism. EatApp enhances the pleasure of eating and removes the fear and guilt associated with it. As a result, it leaves you satiated with just a fraction of your usual portion.
EatApp creates a habit of mindful eating. Once that habit is established, weight loss is nothing short of inevitable.
Weight loss is just one benefit of the EatApp method, and, the way I see it, not the most important one. In fact, weight loss was a side effect - a good and desirable side effect - but still, it wasn’t the primary goal of my invention.
You know, sometimes you want to address a certain issue, and, all of a sudden, other good things happen. Serendipitous events are not that rare. They started with the three princesses of Serendip in a Persian fairy tale, hence the name. These princesses were "always making discoveries, by accidents and sagacity, of things which they were not in quest of”.
The important but unintentional discoveries continued with Alexander Fleming’s accidental finding of the first antibiotic penicillin, which eventually saved billions of lives. Percy Spencer inadvertently invented microwave oven in 1945, and we are forever grateful to him for making our life so convenient. And, by all means, the invention of Post-it by Spencer Silver in 1968 had the most profound impact on how we do business. It is not as high-tech as penicillin and micro-wave, but it has increased our collective business acumen manifold.
The inventors of sidenafil deservedly claimed the latest high-tech serendipity for themselves. Sidenafil is a drug that was initially designed for treatment of high blood pressure and ischemic heart disease. The Sidenafil Study began as a boring standard clinical trial for hypertension and heart disease until something unexpected and exciting started to happen. The patients on sidenafil developed ‘spontaneous’ erections, and it wasn’t because they were happy to see their doctors, but due to the increased blood circulation in their penises.
Some men experienced erections for the first time in many years. Whoa, that was huge!
There is an overabundance of drugs that treat cardiovascular disorders, but there is one and only Viagra, which is a sexed-up name for sidenafil. The problem that made lives of so many men miserable was solved by a serendipitous discovery.
Welcome back to the bone zone, brothers! Just don’t overdo it, your heart is still weak and vulnerable. Medical professionals warn their patients about the dangers of overusing sidenafil for pleasure - there’s a real and present danger of causing cardiovascular complications. The doctor’s message is, ‘Don’t rush to buy Viagra, get in shape first.’
There is no better way of getting in great shape than by using the Eating Applied method. EatApp attacks the source of the disease, which distinguishes it from medicines and methods that address the symptoms. Also, it positively affects not just one but every organ and system in the body.
EatApp was originally designed to deal with digestive problems, such as heartburn, indigestion, IBS, and overeating. And when I discovered its powerful weight loss effect, I was very excited. But I was even more thrilled about another opportunity - extending our healthy lifespan. EatApp lifestyle prevents and reverses the development of age related chronic diseases.
Some health improvements happen almost instantly while others will require weeks or months to take place. And when you embrace the EatApp lifestyle, your prospects of staying healthy and lean will increase dramatically. Moreover, you will feel energized, confident, and empowered. And if you are a middle-aged man, one day you will find that Viagra is no longer necessary.
Get on the EatApp bandwagon as early as possible, and you will be rewarded with a long and healthy life.
