Fat Loser: Steve Siebold is BAAAAAAACK!

Thursday, January 02, 2014

www.fatloser.com/

I've blogged quite a number of times about Steve Siebold's old free 21 day program which was called fatlosers.com.

It was a daily email video subscription. It was terrific. I went through the 21 day program several times. Siebold said quite frankly that most people quit about day 4. Or day 6. Because it was too "in your face". He knew it. But he wasn't prepared to sugar coat his message.

The original fat loser program was based upon Steve Siebold's "mental toughness" philosophy. Steve Siebold is a millionaire public speaker who sells mental toughness by delivering key notes at conferences to major American business corporations. He applies the same mental toughness approach to weight loss. And no question, he takes no prisoners.

A number of people who tried to sign up for the old www.fatlosers.com program told me it's now being sold for a $500 subscription fee. Too bad.

However, Siebold has a new ebook which is free and downloadable at the link above. You'll see it's fat loser (no "s", as in "fatlosers"). The link is a bit wonky, or a least I found it so . . . I had to put in my first name, hit enter and then got an error message. But with persistence I was able to enter enough info to get the ebook.

As soon as I had it, I read it without stopping. It's 117 pages of highly relevant and current info on losing weight and keeping it off. He deals with all the topics that are normally never discussed in this context.

Religion. Politics. The weight loss industry. The manufactured food industry. The effect of weight loss on (ahem) intimate relationships. The effect of weight loss on business and professional success. The connection between personal integrity and weight loss.

Easy to read? Not every page.

Trustworthy? True? Transformative?

Yes, yes and yes.

Might very well be the best thing I read in 2014 about weight control.

I commend it to anyone here who has decided: this is the year!! And to all those of us in maintenance who have decided: every year is the year because every day we're living that decision to keep it off and to stay fit.

Thanks once again, Steve Siebold. Such generosity in sharing his wisdom. What a surge of enthusiasm and optimism and positive can-do energy he communicates in this remarkable new book.

    I love his books! I have read both of his weight loss books. Lifechanging! Even though Im a Christian and it seems he has a real disdain for the faith. Being a Christian makes me no less tough! Great stuff otherwise. I wish more people would read the books.

    Thanks! I may have to try to read it on-line. My computer printer is old and I don't think can manage that many pages consecutively. I'm glad the book has done well for you.

    I need this, cause this is the year I lose the weight! I have to remember that emoticon .
    I have to remember that I quit smoking in 2013 so everything is possible!
    I have to remember what you told me once, it is okay to feel hunger and get past it.

    Thanks, emoticon

    Okay, I know you've sung the praises of Siebold before and yes, have to admit to not following through with his plan...not because I'm too thin-skinned, but because my routine is so jam-packed it is a real challenge to shoe-horn more into my day.

    But hey, since I'm doubling down on my other efforts and *FREE* is a word that always "hooks" me, it sounds like this is too good to pass up!

    Thx Ellen for your ongoing support toward not only me, but sheesh! You are out there connecting with SO MANY among our SparkFamily! We just wouldn't be the same without you around here!

    I've often thought: wouldn't it be cool to turn our virtual community into the real deal? Start our own country: SparkLand...abandon all old unhealthy ways all who enter and live our lives with SPARK! :-)

    Thanks for sharing this info! I went through the video series but only once. Yes, I thought he was unnecessarily rude!! But maybe I wasn't completely ready for the message!

    I think I'll download the ebook. I've got a big challenge ahead in 2014, maintaining my healthy BMI (for the first time in decades) AND even losing more vanity pounds!

    Funny...your description of his book sound like what I am being taught in my Health Coaching course through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. Betting if I research this person, he is one of the people in my lecture series. Thanks for the info.

    I got the free download e-book invite, too. Went and put it on both my tablet and my smart phone.

    When he was doing the daily e-mail / web thing, I made it all the way through his program, too. I argued with him, sure, publicly, in my blogs... but I made it through. And you are right... when the going gets tough, his message rings true!

    I also endorse his stuff! At its core it boils down to the willingness to do "whatever it takes" to lose and maintain!

    emoticon emoticon Downloaded this and skimmed the Index. I can handle 'in your face' when it's in print and I have time to digest the information. In person, I would cave.
