Hi I'm Dr. John Goodman. I am a renowned dietitian with over a decade of experience in the field of adiposity and metabolism dysfunctions. I would like to tell you something very personal about myself...One Day seven years ago I just broke down and started to cry...I just couldn't help myself, it was terrible. I almost thought I was going to have a massive nervous breakdown. It felt like I was a total failure..Here I was, a doctor, and one Saturday morning it all happened right in our bathroom. I made that terrible mistake and stood on the bathroom scales to weigh myself. Believe me, my eyes watered, I felt that sinking hollow feeling deep inside. I wanted to scream. After being on a strict diet for the last two months I now was heavier than when I begun...I just couldn't bring myself to believe it. That meant in one lousy week I had gained every pound I had lost and gained a few more. I was shattered.Maybe this doesn't sound like a big deal to you but to me it was tragic. I was a doctor with a "reputation to keep" and I was failing right in my own home, right within my own specialized field. This was a hit into my core being. How could I face my patients, worse yet was to advise them to do what I wasn't able to do...Then it hit me with full force, a grand idea, I bent down and turned back the dial because I was sure someone had sneaked into my home and changed it, I made sure it was turned back beyond the zero. I stood back on, but that made it worse, I was still the same weight as when I started. So with a fury I wound it back as far as it could go...there that had done it, I said loudly "take that you piece of crap scales" At least I felt a bit better until I looked into the mirror...I had been trying to lose weight for the last 9 1/4 years. I had tried the Atkins diet. The Stillman diet, The weight watchers diet. Tried to kill myself with exercise. Reluctantly tried hypnosis. I starved. Even tried all the dangerous diet pills that promise the world and even indulged in the "seefood and eat it diet". You name it I tried it...I even tried the ones that say you have "Critters" in your insides, how misleading from a professional can you get...But the results...They were stinking lousy. I felt like a mouse trapped inside an elephant. Always the same - lose a few ponds and then gain them all back again. Lose a few more pounds and you guessed it - back on they came, not even with my permission. This was absurd...It had happen now so many times before but this time was very different. I had something to prove, I was no longer going to put up with being laughed at behind my back, no longer was I going to take the fat slob jokes that weren't funny...man people can be so cruel.After all I was a doctor and a very good one at that, and I knew it. Don't get me wrong. This is not a sob story. I am not telling you all this so you can feel sorry for me because it is not like that anymore. This story has a powerful ending, one that can change your life...As a good doctor I did what any doctor should do. I stuck my head down and researched and tested my complex studies on myself. I was my own guinea pig. I was the lab rat...To tell you the honest truth I just stumbled upon this stuff when talking to my father who also was a doctor...But that doesn't really mean much. What does count is the fact that I found the answers that work - PERIOD. What I discovered is so fantastic...
