Descriere

With the Slo-Mo ‎Substitution Plan explained in this book you will lose weight and keep it off without dieting, ‎starving or counting calories. You will also get fit and healthy in the process.
The book explains how your body clings to excess fat, making permanent weight loss so hard, and how Slo-Mo works with your body rather than fighting it. It covers why fat is so unhealthy, ‎how to determine how much you have, how much you should lose and how to measure body fat, which is the real issue, not weight. It has detailed explanations of the baby steps of the Slo-Mo way and how to avoid giving up when your weight loss seems to get stuck.
I know how hard it is to lose weight. I was in denial and had failure until I devised this program for myself. I wrote this book to help others have success.
A bonus is that following the Slo-Mo way will help to avoid high cholesterol, blood pressure and ‎blood sugar without drugs, and improve sexual performance. The book also covers other aspects of health, including exercise, ‎hydration, medical screening tests, vitamin supplements and how dental health is ‎important for overall health.‎
If you want a crash diet, buy another book. But after you gain back the weight you lost fast, come back and try the Slo-Mo way to permanent weight loss and healthy living. ‎

GLOSSARY OF TERMS

INTRODUCTION

Why do I gain the weight back after a crash diet?

Why does my body cling to those pounds that have attached over the years?

How can I lose weight and keep it off without starving?

How much exercise do I really need to lose weight and keep healthy?

Can I control my cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar without drugs?

Can exercise and weight training prevent me from becoming frail?

Can losing weight and exercising help make sex better?

If you are asking yourself these questions, this is the book for you. Following the Slo-Mo Substitution Program which I created, I have lost 30 pounds and kept them off. In the process, I also got healthier, fitter and improved my sex life.

Slo-Mo Substitution is just like it sounds – you take small steps of substituting good foods for bad. There is no calorie counting. There is no feeling of being starved. There is no diet, as your small accumulated changes become a new permanent life style. The book tells you how to do this with simple food substitutions and suggestions when shopping for food and eating out.

There are explanation of how to set your goal based on fat content of your body (some fat is good!), which is the real issue, not weight. Excess body fat is what can harm your health and shorten your life. The various ways of determining body fat are detailed so you can pick the one you like.

The book also explains why our bodies’ hormonal system makes weight loss so hard and why Slo-Mo is a stealth approach that works. It covers why we tend to gain weight and lose strength as we age, and how we can reverse that.

The importance of water and sleep for weight loss are revealed, as well as the many benefits of moderate amounts of exercise. It shows how going Slo-Mo can also help control cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar without drugs.

Finally, vitamins, screening tests and other areas of interest to overall good health are covered.

At the end is a Glossary of the terms used in the book.

In short, there is everything you need to take control to lose and keep off the bad fat and get healthier and fitter at the same time.

A FEW MORE DETAILS ABOUT THIS BOOK

Here is a more detailed preview of this book:

Chapter 1 distinguishes between good fat and bad fat, and explains why bad fat is so bad. It also explains how our bodies cling to the weight we are, why crash diets are doomed to fail and why the Slo-Mo approach works.

Chapter 2 has targets for body fat based on age and both low tech and high tech ways to determine your body fat, including BMI, waist size and electronic scales.

Chapter 3 introduces the Slo-Mo substitution way to shed fat slowly. Chapter 4 expands on the Slo-Mo Plan with more food substitutions and tips for grocery stores and restaurants.

Chapter 5 explains why getting enough sleep helps in losing weight, as well as reducing the risks of diabetes and heart attacks.

Chapter 6 reveals why getting enough water is a necessary part of weight loss and health.

Chapter 7 introduces modest exercise as part of the Slo-Mo Plan.

Chapter 8 outlines a more rigorous exercise program for those with a very active Bucket List

Chapter 9 is about staying healthy for the long haul and evil stuff that can derail it.

Chapter 10 is for those wondering whether this is all just words or if I have actually been following Slo-Mo. I admit to my ups and downs and how I got back on track to lose 30 pounds.

Chapter 11 explains why Slo-Mo helps men improve their sexual performance and why sex is good for health for both men and women, Chapter 12 expands on that by explaining how erections happen, how ED drugs work and why drugs alone may not be enough.

Chapters 13, 14 and 15 summarize the risks of high cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar, and how Slo-Mo can help control all three without drugs.

Chapters 16 delves into vitamins and supplements and why there is such conflicting advice about their value.

Chapter 17 has suggestions about monitoring your own health, since Slo-Mo is all about you taking charge.

Chapter 18 explores whether some of the common medical screening tests are worthwhile.

Chapter 19 has the surprising data on how dental health affects your overall health.

Chapter 20 is about how stress can literally kill you, and some life lessons that can help find peacefulness and reduce self-induced stress.

Chapter 21 has a few last thoughts about Slo-Mo’s baby step approach.

CHAPTER 1, HOW IS FAT BAD? LET ME COUNT THE WAYS

Not all fat is bad. For example, you need some fat as electrical insulation in the myelin sheaths covering your nerve bundles. And a small amount of brown fat (distinguished from the blubber white fat) correlates with being lean and generating heat which increases calorie burn. Another wrinkle is that when entering a hospital, a little extra (emphasis on little) fat
