Fix Your Head to Lose the Weight
From the man who created weight loss television comes a
no-holds-barred guide to shedding the pounds for good, using
the same problem-solving and motivational skills used so
successfully with reality show contestants.
Every fat person (yes, “fat person”—there’ll be no
sugarcoating here) knows that you need to move more and eat
less to shed pounds. Not exactly rocket science. Yet that
simple formula doesn’t get to the root of what makes someone
top out at 500 pounds, or sometimes just carry an extra
fifty. The big fat truth is that the secret to weight loss
is what’s in your head.
Viewers of Extreme Weight Loss, The Biggest Loser, The
Revolution and other transformational shows have seen the
“technicians”—the trainers, the nutritionists, the doctors,
and other health pros who appear on-screen—but they’ve never
seen the heart and soul behind these amazing makeovers. That
would be JD Roth, the behind-the-scenes wizard who created
weight loss television. Intimately involved in casting the
shows’ contestants, he’s the guy whose picture they tape
onto their elliptical trainers and angrily scream at each
night—then hug out of gratitude the next morning. He’s the
guy who holds them when they cry and the one who tells them
they need to get back on the treadmill even though they’re
JD is the tough-love dad for the contestants on these
shows—love being the operative word. Because it’s not just
TV to JD; he’s on a mission to change your life.
In The Big Fat Truth, JD will help you unearth the real
reasons you’re overweight (and it’s not because you love
food!). Then he’ll show you how to create your own reality
show and shake up your life to do the impossible. Included
throughout are inspiring stories, advice, and
before-and-after photos from people JD has helped to lose
weight (both on camera and off), along with quick tips for
how to stay accountable and a 30-day plan for putting this
advice into action.
