Do You Think Like a FAT Person?
|If so, there’s a good chance you will DIE FAT. But… if you’re willing to learn how to think like a FIT PERSON, you still have a chance. Just remember, the clock is ticking.|
Die Fat or Get Tough
101 Differences in Thinking Between Fat People and Fit People
This book pulls no punches. If you’re emotionally sensitive or easily offended, this book is NOT for you!
If you’re FAT, this book is going to rattle your cage and make your blood boil!
|And it should. Get ready for a 2,000 volt cattle prod to your consciousness. If the feel good, easy way to weight loss was working, you wouldn’t be FAT!|
|That’s not a criticism, its objective reality.|
|Get even with the industries that lie by telling us being fat isn’t our fault. They say it’s our thyroid. Or cortisol. The food manufacturers. Restaurants. Its portion sizes. The list goes on and on.|
|And it’s crap!|
|There’s only one person responsible for your expanding waistline, and you know EXACTLY WHO IT IS.
|Grow Up. You’re Fat and it’s YOUR FAULT!|
|But don’t waste time berating yourself. Most of us have gotten FAT at some point in our lives. You’re in the majority. Instead, make an adult decision to take control of your diet and exercise program and get fit. You’re only one decision away from a life of abundant energy, vitality and success. But only you can do it. This book will help you develop and adopt the thought processes, beliefs and philosophies of FIT people, which will make the process much easier.|
|But in the end, only YOU can make it happen. So the only question you have to answer is,|
|Will You Die Fat…or Get Tough?|
|I had to make the same decision 6 years ago, so I get it. I decided to get fit, and it wasn’t easy. But truthfully, it was far easier than feeling bad about being FAT every day. So you either pay the price of success, or the price of failure. (Which you’re already paying) The choice is yours.|
|They say everyone has a story about HOW they GOT FAT…here’s the short version of mine.|
|In the 1970’s, 80’s, and early 90’s, I was a physical specimen. Competing as an athlete at an international level, working out, and running 5 minute miles. But by 2002 I was a FAT-TUB-of-LARD, 40 pounds overweight and getting fatter with every cheeseburger, pizza and doughnut I stuffed into my fat face. I looked in the mirror every morning and felt disgusted and out of control. I felt like a has-been athlete that allowed years of discipline and training to slip away. And I was a mental toughness coach for some of the biggest sales forces in the world!|
|So here’s what happened.|
|I attended a wedding and old friends I hadn’t seen in years didn’t recognize me because I was so fat. I was embarrassed, ashamed, and upset.|
|Then I got angry.|
|You see, I knew better. Since I was 6 years old, I had been trained to think like a champion. I was mentored by some of the finest minds in professional sports, and I had studied the mental toughness secrets of champions for 20 years. I knew how to use my mind to get what I wanted, and I STILL let myself get FAT!
|It was ridiculous. Something had to be done immediately.|
|So I wrote a mental toughness training program for weight loss and called it; The Fat Losers Program. 12 weeks later I shed 40 pounds and my whole life changed. The confidence I gained during those 12 weeks is impossible to overstate. I felt like a million bucks!|
|I felt like I could conquer the world.|
|Every aspect of my life was affected. I doubled my income, my relationships improved, my sex life got hotter, and most importantly, I felt better about myself. The disgusted feeling I used to get when I looked into the mirror turned into pride. I traded my fat clothes in for tailored suits and tight fitting shirts. My waist shrunk from a 36 to a 32.|
|I felt like a winner in a game most people lose.|
|I walked around feeling pretty good about myself, until I woke up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat, and thought: I have to share this with people who are still FAT. They’re 12 weeks away from a life they can’t even imagine, and they don’t even know it!|
|So I created the Fat Losers Program, which is a small group coaching program conducted over weekly conference calls for 90 days. (www.thefatlosers.com) The program was an instant success, and continues to this day. The problem is at $497.00, it’s too expensive for some people who really need it, especially since the economy has soured. Besides that, I’ve been so busy in the last 5 years writing books, giving speeches, and consulting Fortune 500 sales teams I put it on the back burner.|
|Then my wife Dawn, who coaches the Fat Loser Program, approached me in the summer of 2008 and said:|
|“Steve, you have to write the book on the differences in thinking between fat people and fit people. No one is telling the truth about what causes people to get fat, and the obesity epidemic is escalating. You need to do this now.”|
|I was NOT happy with the direction this conversation was headed. I had built a seven figure income teaching multi-national corporations how to increase sales through mental toughness training. I had written a book that sold over 100,000 copies and was getting more popular every day. My second book was about to be published and my speaking career was on fire.|
|I was laser focused and rising like a rocket. Now she wants me to change gears?
I thought she was crazy.
|Then she hit me where it hurt.|
|She said, “Look, Steve, you’re the only author/speaker that has this point of view and philosophy, and you know it. Sure, it’s too direct and hard hitting for most people, but for others, it may be their only chance. It’s probably the one and only opportunity they’ll have in their life to hear the truth minus the hype, B.S. and delusion. You could save a lot of people from an early grave.”|
|Her words grabbed me by the throat.|
|I wrestled with this for weeks, and I started to feel a little guilty. Here I was, this corporate speaker, author and consultant, living large by coaching the richest companies in the world, while people who needed my help most were getting fatter and sicker every day. I knew this project may end up costing me a lot of time and money, with only a small number of people tough enough to benefit from my efforts.|
|Still, I felt an obligation to put pen to paper and write this book.|
|If you read this book and fail to move from fat to fit, your fate as a fat person may be sealed. This book is so direct and to the point there’s no room for misinterpretation.|
|You either think like a fat person and stay fat, or you learn to think like a fit person and get fit. No tricks. No gimmicks. Only objective reality. You either get it or you don’t.|
|It’s that simple.|
|If you study this book, you will never see eating and exercise the same way again, and you’ll understand the thinking that made you fat. All you have to do is make a commitment and have the mental toughness to stick to it.|
|If you’ll do it, you will live a healthier, happier life.|
|Are you ready to make a decision and move forward? If not today, then when?|
|Do it now while you STILL HAVE A CHOICE!|
|You can do it! You’re TOUGHER than you think!|
|I congratulate you on your success in advance.|
|To your abundant health!|
