Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
Are you ready to change your body for life? Do you want to step on a scale and feel happy? Do you want to look in the mirror and feel proud? Do you want looser-fitting clothes? Do you want more energy? Do you want to sleep solidly through the night?
No games. No gimmicks. No shakes. No starvation. Just a straightforward and simple, doctor-approved approach to eating and exercise that throws out decades of bad science and will transform you from being a fat-storing person into a permanent FAT-BURNING MACHINE.
This is our promise: Follow this plan and you will experience dramatic, life-altering results.

I was just standing there waiting for results, and half the time I closed my eyes and ears so I wouldn’t have to acknowledge the truth. I had to take matters into my
weight loss efforts. When I started working with Gale, it hit me: Everything had to be in sync. Exercise alone will not turn you into a Fat-Burning Machine—you have to change your diet if you want to beat metabolic syndrome. In fact, the more exercise I did before I changed my nutrition, the hungrier I wasn’t and I was gaining weight. Eating a diet that is high in carbohydrates, even if it is only done during exercise situations, would cause my metabolic syndrome to make me a fat-storing
