Fat Loss Specialist

So what is a Fat loss Specialist? It seems, to me at least, like a strange title. I guess it’s another name for a Weight-Loss Specialist. In other words, someone who helps those suffering with obesity to formulate a weight-loss plan. Ideally one that works, and delivers a permanent solution. I am not even sure that in most cases the person even needs to be a specialist, just someone with some common sense around dieting and nutrition. Obesity is now at pandemic levels in most western countries. And without doubt, both the dramatic increase in highly-processed foods, and the sedentary lifestyle adopted have fuelled the level of obesity.

We Are Fat Loss Specialists

But what about an obesity/fat loss/weight loss specialist? When someone is described, or labelled, as being obese, it is often very depressing. It usually has such negative connotations. I can remember, as clearly as if it were yesterday, the first time I was called obese. It was more than 50 years ago; a doctor was examining me in hospital. To the medical students, he described me as an obese male, requiring an appendectomy. I really don’t think I was overweight at the time. It’s strange though, after 50 years I have never forgotten his words, and his description of me. Obese! Argh !!!

Anyway, similar to obese, let’s get back to the word FAT. And my thoughts around the fact that it is the most misplaced/misunderstood word in the English dictionary. So, let me explain: I have worked for over fifteen years in the weight-loss industry. Yes, I am a weight-loss expert, with 15,000 hours of 1:1 clinical experience, working with people wishing to lose weight. Before that, I was also on the continual circuit of weight loss, then weight gain myself. I tried every diet on the planet.

Clients would walk into our clinic telling us that all they wanted in their lives was to lose the fat around their middle. They talked about always being fat and how depressing it was. They just wanted to go on a diet to lose the fat. “What Fat?” I would say. “This around my belly”, they would reply. And, of course, that’s how people refer to it. However, a more helpful way to see it is that all the “extra” stuff around their belly, or arms, or anywhere else on their body, is really sugar/carbohydrate that is simply being stored as FAT. So body fat is basically stored energy. You should read the Obesity and Weight Loss page for more info.

Misguided Thinking

As an example of our misguided thinking, just think about the word fat and how you visualise it. When you look at a pat of butter, do you instantly equate it with the fat around your waist? Of course, we’ve all been led to believe that eating fat makes us fat. However, in reality our excess body fat is mainly a result of consuming too much sugar and processed carbs. Let’s dispel this myth right now: eating dietary fat DOES NOT make you fat.

eating fat doesn't make you fat

Fat contains more calories per gram than protein and carbohydrates: FACT! And so it was easy for us all to succumb to the “calories in, calories out” hypothesis for the past few decades. However this theory also assumes that the human body treats all calories equally. And that’s the big problem, because the body’s hormones respond very differently, depending on the type of foods we eat. In fact, the famous functional medicine advocate, Dr. Mark Hyman, refers to studies which show that eating fat actually helps you burn MORE calories. His book: “Eat Fat, Get Thin” explains how the fat that we eat is the key to sustained weight loss and good health.

Marion and I often talk about that other weird word associated with weight loss that is DIET. It’s bizarre! For example, if we take a trip to the local zoo, outside every enclosure is a small sign, which tells you about the animal’s normal habitat, breeding seasons, along with general details of the animal’s diet. But it has zero to do with them being overweight. Because the original meaning of the word “diet” is basically just the food that a living organism habitually eats. Naturally, the diet of the human population varies quite considerably, depending on where in the world they live. The Chinese have a very different diet from those living in the USA, as an example.

Diet means Deprivation

We’re aware that people’s interpretation of word “diet” these days unfortunately also equates to deprivation. And, of course, it’s human nature that when we’re feeling deprived of something, this in turn leads to an elevated level of desire for that specific thing. And that’s exactly why temporarily ‘going on a diet’ can never work on a long-term basis. For sure, people can deny themselves certain foods for a short period of time, whilst they strive to lose weight. But, as soon as they start eating those foods again, they will probably overcompensate for their period of denial and end up overeating. As a result, the weight will return; often even more than before the “diet” started.

Weight Loss and Fat Loss Specialists

When interviewed, overweight people will tell you that they eat because they are sad, lonely, bored, tired, depressed, or even just to please someone else; seldom because they are hungry. Placing someone on a food restricted diet, is simply treating the symptom, not the cause, and this should never happen in the health arena. By treating obesity with uniquely developed psychological interventions, it is possible to introduce permanent change…resulting in permanent weight loss.

Below is a selection of weight-loss tips that everyone can start using straight away. And, if you enroll in the My Weigh Less Course, you will learn many more of our helpful tips and techniques about how to achieve successful, permanent weight loss.

Tip No. 1 – Only Eat When You’re Hungry!

This has to be our number one, golden rule, when it comes to achieving successful weight loss. In our experience, most overweight people eat for many different reasons, other than physical hunger. But, if you allow your emotions to control your eating habits, then it is unlikely that you will be able to control your weight as a result. So, before you reach for anything to eat, stop and ask yourself first if you physically NEED to eat, or you just WANT to…

Tip No. 2 – Use a Smaller Plate!

You’ve probably heard this many times before, but it’s a fact that people who use larger plates tend to eat more food than those who eat from smaller plates. No doubt you know about the power of optical illusions. But are you aware of just how much more generous the same size portion of food appears, when presented on a smaller plate, instead of a larger one? Have a look at the image below. It’s known as the Delboeuf optical illusion. If you stick to our mantra, “always go for quality over quantity”, then you will definitely lose weight much more easily.

Delboeuf Optical Illusion

Tip No. 3 – Drink a Glass or Two of Water Before Your Meal!

Reduce Your Calorie Intake by over 20%, with almost with no effort! Research results, published by Harvard Medical showed that people who drank two large glasses of water, just before eating, consumed, on average, around 20% less food than previously. This is possibly as a result of the stretching and fullness sensation in the stomach.

Tip No. 4 – Eat Slowly and Mindfully!

A growing number of studies have consistently found a correlation between speed of eating and weight, so it is officially accepted now that faster eaters are definitely more likely to become overweight. Studies have also shown that people are much more likely to eat more when their eating is mindless, as opposed to mindful. So, make meal times an occasion by sitting down at a table, with no distractions. Then eat slowly and savour every mouthful. You will naturally eat less food and also find it easier to lose weight as a result!

Tip No. 5 – Stay Away From Sugar and Highly Processed Foods!

It’s a fact that sugar and highly processed foods have addictive properties! So much so, that many people find that once they start eating these foods, they literally can’t stop. And, of course, if you’re making such poor food choices, this in turn will make it almost impossible for you to lose weight. So, our advice is to choose healthy, unprocessed foods and limit the amount of sugar you consume. As a result, you will have far more control over how much you eat and also how much weight you can lose.

Tip No. 6 – Eat Your Favourite Foods on the Plate First!

You may not be aware of how important this tip is, but the order in which you eat your food can actually have a big impact on how much you consume! It’s quite common for overweight people to “save the best til last” when eating. In other words they only eat their favourite food right at the end. It’s not so surprising then, that they also tend to eat everything on their plate, regardless of how uncomfortably full they feel. Because, of course, they don’t want to miss out on the “best bit”!

However, our advice is to eat your favourite things first. Not only will you enjoy it more, but it’s also much easier to stop when you’ve eaten just the right amount and leave the rest on the plate.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is A Fat Loss Specialist?

A Fat Loss Specialist is another name for a Weight Loss Specialist, or Dieting Counsellor. There are many weight-loss clubs and groups available, which enable you to join weekly, or monthly weigh-in meetings, and listen to presentations by the individuals running the programme. Whether these people are professionals, or specialists, is an unknown quantity.

Can I Lose Weight Permanently Without Surgery?

Most certainly! In fact there is no need for weight-loss surgery at all. Verified results are published on our website that indicate an equal level of success without surgery. In fact, exercise is not a vital component either. Read the Medical Endorsement section of the site.

How Fast Can I Lose The Weight?

People contacting us to ask how fast they can lose their excess weight, is, without doubt, the most common question we hear. The answer, of course, depends on the individual, and how committed they are. In general, a week on week weight loss of 1- 2 pounds per week is what we would expect. Of course, in the first few weeks the weight loss will be more, but it will eventually settle down to somewhere between 1 to 2 pounds on average.
