Learn the secrets to losing 50 pounds, even if you're dieting and exercising and still not shedding that unwanted weight!
Tackle underactive thyroid and depressed metabolism and discover how to break that diet plateau in the next 10 minutes!
From: Jackie Bushell
Dear Fellow Dieter,
If you're sticking to your diet faithfully but it's not working, or you're doing more running, aerobics or other exercise but you're still not losing weight, then you are probably feeling like nothing will ever get you into that little black dress or skinny swimsuit, get you noticed in the bar, or give you the energy to run about with your kids.
Maybe your weight was fine until recently, when you started to gain weight without increasing your calorie intake, and now nothing seems to shift the pounds, no matter how hard you try. You're frustrated and depressed, and feeling like giving up.
Or perhaps you lost weight before but then you put it all back again, and as you've probably already found, with each successive diet, it gets harder to lose the weight. You know yo-yo dieting is just making your weight problem worse but you're feeling powerless to do anything about it.
You wonder whether you could have a problem with your metabolism such as an underactive thyroid or a low metabolic rate. You may have had blood tests which say you are not hypothyroid but you are still struggling with hypothyroid symptoms such as inability to lose weight. You could already be taking thyroxine (T4) for low thyroid but you still can't lose weight. You're feeling like no-one is listening to you and you can't win, whatever you do.
There is a solution to your weight loss problem or diet plateau, and you can solve it once and for all ...
What you need is not a one-fits-all diet plan, it's a personalized action plan that recognizes you are an individual, with your own individual biochemical makeup. It's not more exercise, or diet pills, or advice on 'emotional eating' or ways to cut more calories, it's the know-how to identify the biochemical factors which are preventing you personally from losing weight and how to eliminate them. Factors such as hypothyroidism or low thyroid and depressed metabolism, amongst many others.
If, like me, you've been searching for answers to these problems, you'll know that it's very difficult to find them. I've been on diets for most of my life – and through most of that time, I was the classic yo-yo dieter. The standard doctor's low calorie/low fat diet; the boiled egg diet; very low calorie liquid diets; low calorie meal replacements; appetite-suppressing fiber supplements; high protein diets; fasting; prescribed weight loss pills; low carb diets; the Atkins Diet; the low GI Diet; WeightWatchers - I've tried them all.
Jogging; swimming; aerobics; gym; power walking - I tried all those too, but they made little difference. Until I made a crucial discovery, that is - there are problems that can prevent you from losing weight that can't be fixed by simply dieting or exercising more. The rest is history. You wouldn't recognize me now - excess pounds gone, bags of self-esteem, energetic, feeling happy and healthy!
The problem was that up until then I had been following the traditional advice that to lose weight, you should eat fewer calories and exercise more. But it isn't that simple. Eating less does not necessarily mean you lose weight.
For example, too few calories can make your body think there is a famine and send you into 'starvation mode' by running more efficiently on fewer calories. Even the most commonly prescribed 'healthy weight loss diet' of 1200 calories a day can depress your metabolism in this way. Your body has other survival mechanisms in place, too, for instance to prevent you from losing weight if your levels of vitamins, minerals or essential fatty acids are poor.
It is now known that many hormonal and biochemical factors can stop you losing weight. This is brand-new research which most diet books and sources of official weight loss advice are not up-to-date enough to recognize.
There are lots of other hormonal and biochemical factors which affect how and when you can lose weight. These factors can prevent you losing weight no matter which type of diet you're on, or how hard you are exercising.
The significance of these biochemical and hormonal factors is only just starting to be recognized, and it was the brand-new research into this neglected but crucial aspect of dieting that I had stumbled upon. That was a true turning point in my life.
I started to read the many books and papers written by doctors, nutritionists, dieticians, researchers, exercise physiologists and others who have taken a special interest in learning about how your body responds to weight-loss attempts. Initially, it all seemed a mass of confusing and often conflicting information, but eventually I began to piece it together and it all started to make sense. It had taken me many years to get to this point, and what I found was momentous.
I discovered that there are 15 main reasons for weight loss problems, any or all of which could be affecting you.
What my research taught me was that official healthy eating advice, which focuses on calorie counting and reducing fat, ignores the reality of how your body responds differently to different food groups, and to drastic or long term dieting. It ignores the fact that we are all individuals biochemically and that there can be no single diet that is best for everyone.
Furthermore, official advice on healthy eating and dieting fails to recognize how nutritional deficiencies, allergies, toxic load, candida, stress, insulin imbalance, prescribed medicines and many other factors can hinder your attempts to lose weight. It ignores the survival mechanisms which your body has in place to prevent you losing weight if you eat too little. It also ignores the fact that undiagnosed or undertreated hypothyroidism is thought to cause weight loss problems for a significant number of dieters, not just a rare few as has been thought up until now.
Low thyroid – the hidden epidemic that could be preventing your weight loss
In fact, many thyroid experts believe that low thyroid is a hidden epidemic. 'Hidden' because most medical practitioners are unaware of how common it is, and don't therefore look for it. And when they do test for hypothyroidism, the tests fail to pick up many cases.
After many hundreds of hours of researching the latest knowledge about these seemingly disparate conditions, it became apparent how they are all connected and can singly or collectively be the reason you can't lose weight.
Many diet experts believe that up to 60% of people have difficulty losing weight on the high carbohydrate/low calorie/low fat diet that is currently promoted as 'healthy eating.' Many thyroid experts believe that a significant number of people also have undiagnosed low thyroid, or else their hypothyroidism has been diagnosed, but they are not being given the right thyroid medication.
And even if you haven't got a sluggish thyroid, you can still have a low metabolic rate which has become depressed as a result of constant dieting.
If I had relied upon the information about how to lose weight that you find in doctors' offices, diet magazines and the media, I would never have solved my weight problem!
If I hadn't spent all those years researching the real reasons for my weight loss problems, I would never have become slim. The amazing one third of my body weight that I lost totally transformed my life, and my only regret is that I didn't discover the real reasons why most diets fail many years earlier.
That's when I knew I had to write a book a book to share this knowledge with you. It took me thirty years to find solutions for my personal weight loss problems. Although the clock can't be turned back on my own missed years, the low self esteem, the depression and the desperation of not knowing what to try next, you can avoid going through this same ordeal.
In my book, you'll learn the secrets of what happens in your body when you diet. You'll understand how built-in survival mechanisms can slow down your metabolism and stop you from losing weight, whether you are on a low calorie, low fat, low carb, low GI or any other diet. You'll discover how to avoid the traps that cause so many diets to fail, such as:
- Cutting calories too drastically – this can depress your metabolism, causing a plateau or stall you cannot get past, no matter how hard you diet or exercise
- Not eating enough protein – this can deplete you of the brain chemicals that control your mood, making you miserable or depressed, which makes following your diet all the harder
- Not paying enough attention to the quality of your food – your body will protect itself by resisting weight loss
- Basing your diet on carbohydrates and reducing fat and calories, when it is the carbohydrates that are causing your body to store fat
You'll also learn how it is that huge numbers of dieters are needlessly struggling with their weight and other related problems such as fatigue and inability to exercise, simply because underactive thyroid is such a hidden and unrecognized problem. You'll understand crucial issues such as:
- What to look out for if you've never been tested for hypothyroidism
- Why low thyroid might be preventing your weight loss even if you have been tested and told it was normal
- Why your thyroid medication might not be right for you and what you can do about it
- Why you should expect 100 per cent improvement of your hypothyroid symptoms, and not be fobbed off with 'What do you expect, you're hypothyroid'.
- Where to go to find out more about hypothyroidism and its treatment from thyroid specialists who are aware of all the latest developments in thyroid research and not constrained by outdated beliefs and treatments
And if you are low thyroid, you may just find that many other symptoms you have suffered with for years melt away too, along with the fat! Symptoms such as fatigue and low energy, depression, constipation, poor memory, poor concentration, loss of mental function, aches and pains, loss of libido, menstrual problems, infertility, repeated miscarriages and a whole host of other problems that low thyroid can cause.
I have found your book pulls together a lot of current thinking and answers a lot of questions for me. Thank you so much.

This book is a must for anyone that has tried exercise and various diets but still can't lose weight.
For years I have tried various diets which only provided short term success in weight loss. This insightful book has, at last, provided the answers needed to achieve permanent weight loss.
It seems that most people have the same issue – it's easy to lose weight, but its much harder to keep it off and this book looks at this from a different perspective, so someone that has a real interest in finding out the cause of not keeping weight off will find the book really useful.

My husband and I are both calorie counting and I was at a complete standstill plateau for about 3.5 - 4 weeks. I am now losing again thanks to the [calorie] "cycling" – I was just eating too few calories and walking a lot!
Thanks again – we're appreciating the ebook!

Overweight is not your fault!
By the way, this book is not about blaming all weight problems on overeating, and it's not about blaming overeating on 'emotional' issues, either. For too long, overweight people have been told that their weight problem is caused by lack of willpower, weak character, or eating for comfort.
The truth is that difficulty in losing weight has physical, not emotional causes. Overweight is not your fault! Dietary failure is not your fault! There are good physiological and biochemical reasons why your body may not allow you to shed weight at any point in time. Understanding this is crucial to succeeding on your diet. If you ignore the physical, biochemical factors which may be preventing your weight loss, no amount of dealing with 'emotional issues' will get those surplus pounds off!
Underactive thyroid and low metabolism are just two examples of problems you may have without realizing it, and which may be affecting your ability to lose weight. But they might not be the only factors. Your body is very complex and it works as an integrated whole. That's why trying different diets or exercise plans, weight loss pills and supplements, weight loss patches, 'fatburners' and 'miracle fast weight loss' products in a haphazard way is very unlikely to solve your problem. Just tackling one or two of the factors on their own may not be enough to trigger your weight loss.
Here's the essential point about successful and permanent weight loss: you need a personalized, methodical process for identifying and eliminating all the potential factors that might prevent your diet or exercise plan from working.
And that's exactly what you will learn in this book.
In the book, you'll discover all these little-known yet critical diet saboteurs and how to eliminate them. You'll also get a summarized list of all the do's and don'ts from each chapter which you can use as a checklist to form the basis of your own personal 15-step action plan for weight loss success. You'll have the tools you need to lose weight permanently and safely, banishing your feelings of frustration at previous diet failures or weight loss plateaus once and for all!
Losing weight is not the only benefit – you'll improve your long term health too!
Following the principles in this book means that you are getting your body back into balance. When your body's fundamental processes and systems are operating as they are meant to do, you're much more able to resist chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer and arthritis.
I'm really very impressed with "Why can't I lose weight?" by Jackie Bushell.
This is not 'yet another miracle diet' but an up to the current moment comprehensive understanding of the underlying complex mechanisms that make up our metabolism, very clearly layed out and explained in easy to understand language. It makes for fascinating reading, explaining how our bodies evolved from early evolution to be adapted to their environment at that time and how our environment has now changed so fast our bodies have not kept pace. Moreover, there are many individual factors that influence the way we can successfully lose weight and different factors will influence different people. All we've done until now when dieting is follow what worked well for other people. No wonder people have failed time and time again! This book is the clearest and most complete work on the science of dieting that I have ever read, and is great to read cover to cover as well as serving as a reference source of information.
Thanks for a brilliant book, Jackie!

The book got technical things over in an easy to understand way. It was just as though you were talking to me in a conversation.

What's unique about this book is that you will find unbiased information on the latest scientific understanding of how to lose weight successfully. There are no diet pills or foods to buy.
This knowledge has not yet filtered down from the research world to mainstream medicine, government health departments, the media and the average man in the street. As a result, you won't have read this material in regular dieting books. But be reassured. The advice in my book comes from qualified doctors – the enlightened few, that is, who have taken the time to understand and treat the real root cause of weight loss problems.
My book also stands out from the rest because it doesn't just focus on a single aspect or cause of weight loss. As we have seen, it is important to bring all aspects of your body's functions into balance to achieve real, permanent weight loss, and my book covers the whole range of scientific factors you'll need to consider in order to achieve your weight loss goals.
Everybody should read this! It should be common knowledge. So much information but put in a straightforward manner. The sort of thing that should be on everyone's bookshelf.

- Appetite suppressants, fat blockers, carb blockers, fat burners and the rest ($559 per year)
- Special diet meals and products which left you feeling hungry but failed to take the weight off ($637)
- The cost of visits to your doctor and of medications for obesity-related problems ($622).
