Not insulted at all :)
I meant "qualified" as in spent a lifetime making excues, being weak willed and not getting anywhere and now have been fasting successfully 5 days a week sometimes up to 21 days in a row for just over 5 months, finally realised what was holding me back and done something about it.
Tea and sympathy is all well and good but what most people need, and certainly what I needed is the brutal honest truth. For most people, me inculded it is lack of discipline and constant excuse making that got me to 200kg's, it was only when I leanrt how to have some self discipline and control, things started to fall in to place. Tea and sympahty might well drag somebody kicking and screaming through a 10 day fast, and the "nutritionally educated" amongst you might then give yourselves a pat on the back, well done you :) However tea and sympathy will NOT keep it off long term, it is an indivduals will power that will do this, the discipline to see that you have recently put on 5 pounds say, and then be able to say NO not happening and drag you backside into the gym to work it off.
Tea and sympathy or "support" as it is called here is not the answer and is cetainly not a cure.
Joe hits on what I am talking about very briefly in the first film, shame he did not go into it in more depth but he totally had the key in his hand and shared it, not everyone will have picked up on it though.
I will find the time in the film and post back soon.
I would much rather listen to someone who is doing it / done it successfully than any "educated" nutritionist any day of the week :)
No disrespect intended towards nutrionists but the fact they hold a shiny certificate makes them educated in the theory, only a very small percentage of them will have ever actually struggled with weight in their lifetimes so really have no clue what it is like day to day and what holds people back.
Information is helpful, action and will power is the King!
