All of this sounds great on paper, but
what happens when someone actually tries to put it into practice?
Even though I loved the logical approach and everything about it, I still had my doubts about how effective it might be for someone stuck in a frustrating eating cycle.
My concerns were turned aside when I saw how it worked in a very close friend of mine.
Lauren had chosen the perfect diet plan. She had followed it exactly as she was supposed to for 9 days in a row, and thought she was on the path to a healthy life. But, on Day 9, she gave in just a little bit to a dessert that was offered by a generous host at a dinner party.
Everything snowballed from there.
Since she had already eaten something that wasn't part of her diet, Lauren stopped at the grocery store for some ice cream that night, and ate the whole carton when she got home.
Feeling terrible physically and emotionally, she ate poorly the next day too, and never got back on the program after that. All her success was wasted!
Feeling like a complete failure, she continued with her bad eating habits for a few weeks, and then started another diet plan. The reviews were excellent, and the science behind it looked really sound. This one seemed as if it were bound to work!
She made it only 6 days this time, when the temptation was some food she was baking for her family. The snowball began again, and the ever-frustrating cycle continued.
Lauren also has 6 children, so any time and energy she spends on a diet plan is precious. She spends hours researching which plan will work best for her, so she doesn't undertake a plan lightly.
She didn't know what to try next.
Full disclosure: Lauren is my wife.
We had some very interesting conversations about good eating in the following days and weeks. Trying this plan and then that one certainly wasn't getting accomplishing anything, so there had to be some other solution. It occurred to me that she had never developed the skill of following through on a diet plan.
By the way, neither had I.
We realized that instead of TRYING to stick to diet plans, we desparately needed the SKILLS required to stick to a diet plan first.
That is skill that is completely different than knowing which foods to eat, and is not usually even considered when people start their diets. Neither of us had never even tried to develop the skill of sticking to a plan!
It was then that I decided to focus on what it takes to develop the skill of how to stick to a plan instead of the plan itself. After spending hours exploring both good eating AND how to develop skills, the PERFECT SUCCESS Method was born.
It is NOT a quick fix to eating exactly the way a person supposedly “should” eat. But,
- Lauren developed control over her eating within days,
- she became content with her eating in less than two weeks(!), and
- in the first 2 days, removed the guilt she had always felt about how she had eaten!
The great thing about this program is,
no specific foods EVER have to be cut out of your diet,
so the resentment that normally builds up with diet plans never enters the equation.
Furthermore, most diets require that you revolutionize the way you eat, which requires that you expend tons of extra time and energy. No eating revolution is necessary in the PERFECT SUCCESS method, so all that time and energy is still available to you for the rest of life's work and play.
As the journey continued for Lauren, she began to see the changes in mindset she had always longed for. She had a peace of mind knowing that nothing could derail her from this journey.
When I saw the logical progression this method used, it became clear that it can take anyone at any point and bring them to a place of peace and contentment with their eating.
I was at a different place in my eating than Lauren, but I experienced all the same wonderful benefits she had experienced when I undertook the plan, too. I obtained the same peace, contentment, and lack of guilt that she had, AND
I am much healthier than I have ever been, in both mind and body.
This is the only solution I have ever found that actually teaches the dieter HOW to follow through on a program, not just WHAT diet to follow. Once you learn this skill, you'll have a newfound ability to eat exactly the way you want to, and have perfect success!
When I saw the huge positive impact it could have on people's lives, I made it my mission to get this information out to as many people as possible who were dissatisfied with their eating and health.
