Welcome to Losing Weight 101: The Ultimate Weight Loss Manual. I wrote this guide after finally getting fed up with all of the misinformation and sales pitches on the internet. This is the place to start for anyone wanting to lose weight.
Don’t lose this page! It’s the most important tool at your disposal, and you’ll probably want to come back later to review information or tweak your plan. Press CTRL+D to bookmark.
The goal of this guide is to condense a book’s worth of information into a free, online resource. We’ll cover:

Why is This Guide Different?
Simply put, because it works. This information is based on real-world results that people have actually achieved, along with medically verified facts. You won’t find any unrealistic, idealistic plans that nobody could stick with in real life, or any recommendations for the latest “miracle weight loss herb” like the ones Dr Oz got busted promoting.
Instead, you’ll find a collection of the best, proven methods to burn fat – along with realistic advice on incorporating these methods into your daily life.
Can I Really Lose Weight?
Yes, absolutely. I hear all the time from people who have been jaded by misleading diets / systems and past failures from following bad advice. By learning which methods actually work, you’ll be able to finally make changes that pay off.
This guide will give you the tools you need, and even help you concentrate your motivation and discipline towards getting results. At the end of the day, though, it’s still up to you. You’ll get out of this what you put into it. I can point you in the right direction – the decision to make the change is still up to you.
Remember: There’s no way to lose weight without putting in at least the basic level of dedication necessary to commit to a few daily lifestyle changes. Anyone who tells you otherwise is just trying to make money off your struggles.
Even something as drastic as weight loss surgery will still fail in the long run if you aren’t willing to make some life changes – as evidenced by the vast amount of people that immediately gain their weight back after the operation.
I can promise you one thing, though – it’s worth it! Making the decision to start is the most difficult part. When you finally realize that this time, you have something that works and you start seeing results, it’s downright addictive. These minor changes begin feeling like a part of your normal life, and it becomes just as easy as the lifestyle you currently follow.
How Much of This Should I Read?
If you are serious about losing weight, I recommend reading this guide in full. Each chapter is designed to draw from the others, and all of this information is vital in helping you achieve your goals. A brief investment of your time to fully read this guide will pay off for years to come – it could even change your life!
