Six Weeks to OMG: Get Skinnier Than All Your Friends is based on a plan originally designed by nutrition expert and personal trainer Venice A. Fulton for his A-list clients, SIX WEEKS TO OMG is a groundbreaking system that uses a precise mix of nutrition, biochemistry, genetics, and psychology to produce amazing results. Authoritative, clearly written and entertaining, this book combines years of red carpet success with fresh, cutting edge strategies to help anyone get thin and healthy – fast!
This book is rivaling the Dukan Diet in London. Let us know your thoughts after reading an excerpt of the book below:
HOW MUCH DO YOU THINK I CAN LOSE?
For some, this might be the second most important question you want answered. And in fact, it’s the easiest one to answer. But it will also be the most difficult truth to accept from the whole book. Are you ready? Take a deep breath. There’s no limit on how much fat you can lose. If you’re very fat, you can lose a bigger total compared to those who have less fat to start with. But everyone, and that means, e-v-e-r-y-o-n-e, can be
skinny. Yes, skinny.
Scientists and psychologists probably find that irresponsible. I don’t care. I just want you to find it inspiring. If it’s making you angry, I understand. We’ve all overheard conversations
and absorbed stuff that suggests being skinny isn’t for everyone.
“You really must realize that you’re not made like her”
“I guess I just have a super fast metabolism”
“Genes are the most important thing”
“Come on, look at your ankles”
If you hear something enough, you’ll start to believe it, make it a fact, and finally you’ll live up to it. It’s wrong that so many people do this and give up their dream of being skinny. It’s time to wipe the hard drive! Being skinny is for everyone. It’s healthy, it’s possible, and importantly, it’s how the human body loves to be. While scientists and diet gurus have been studying the differences between human beings, they’ve forgotten to spend more time looking at similarities. And as it turns out, there’s quite a lot.
We already have enough knowledge, which if properly understood and used, can keep us skinny and healthy. This will work for at least 99% of the population. Even those in the other 1% can improve beyond their dreams. You might be wondering how this can be true, especially as skinny success seems quite rare. Human beings are part of the universe. And that’s full of laws. The laws of physics, chemistry and biology are three well-known ones.
You have never “failed” on any diet. Never! The diet has failed to be properly designed and apply these basic laws. Big difference. You’ve got to delete any sense of failu… Or
you’ll believe that you’re special in the wrong way and be “one of those” who can’t be skinny. Don’t become another amateur expert on genetics, i.e. don’t blame your genes!
HOW QUICKLY DO YOU THINK I COULD LOSE IT?
No one can deny that some people lose fat quicker than others, and with less effort. This difference in speed causes people to give up. The crucial thing to realize is that eventually, you can look as skinny as you like. I sense that was too wishy-washy an answer for you! Of all the questions, it’s the speed issue that excites most. Maybe it’s the reason you chose Six Weeks To OMG. I’m going to give you the best, honest answer I can.
In a way, I could have answered this via the previous question, “how much do you think I could lose?”. But it needed a time frame to be more accurate. In 6 weeks, you can lose between 10 and 20 pounds of fat. Not weight. That means, if you apply the ideas of the book, you will lose fat at the rate of up to 3.5 pounds every week. If this disappoints you, hold up. Many diets promise faster weight loss. But it’s weight, not fat.
Many people assume that fast weight loss is water loss. Nope. When calories are slashed ultra low (or food choices become really limited), most of the weight is muscle loss. And that’s a natural disaster! Water loss is easy to fix. The body has built-in mechanisms to keep you interested in water or watery foods. Even if you keep ignoring your thirst, your body will make you think again by slowing you down and making you physically weak. Room temperature water can go from mouth to muscles in under 10 minutes.
But muscles themselves take weeks, months and sometimes even years to rebuild and recover from a sudden loss. And during that time, you will suffer. Some of you might be thinking, “so what, no one can see it, and anyway I look skinny!”. Shrinking your muscles isn’t really a yay moment. You can hide it from others, but your body always knows what’s going on. Losing muscle is never a good idea. In a cosmetic sense, you’ll have a slightly softer body. Maybe you can deal with that. Next up, is the development of a reduced metabolism. Finally, something to blame being fat on! Muscle is where most of our food is “burned”. Think of muscle as an oven. Shrink your oven, and you shrink your ability to burn calories. And a smaller oven equals less slices of pizza for you!
So, back to those 10 to 20 pounds. That works out to be a weekly fat loss rate of roughly 1.5 to 3.5 pounds. Can you lose it faster? Yes. I’ve seen faster fat loss in about 10% of people. And, I’ve seen slower. What causes this variation? The truthful answer is that I don’t know. There are so many factors at play, many of which we haven’t discovered yet. And because we don’t know what we’re looking for, I can’t suggest how to
10 to 20 pounds of fat loss in 6 weeks is fast. It happens when you get lots of things right. If up to 3.5 pounds per week sounds slow, think how losing that week after week soon adds up. I bet you didn’t even gain that fast! When people lose more weight than this, they usually don’t look better. When you get 10 to 20 pounds of fat loss in 6 weeks (even if you’re 250 to start), the changes you have made will be obvious to anyone. As in, “OMG” obvious! Your clothes will fit better, with especially good slimming around your waist (where fat can sit deep inside you). Your face, neck and jawline will be less puffy. And you’ll feel lighter, a feeling that’s so refreshing.
Okay, take a few moments to think about what you’ve read in this section. It’s probably been thought changing, confusing and even tiring. Be honest with yourself, and move to the next section when you’re ready. That’s decision time!
