What have we done to stop us from seeing the change we desire? Why are people overweight? Why don’t diets work? 

Truth is, we complicate matters. Things are not going to work with eating the wrong food. You’ve got to change your lifestyle. You’ve got to dive into the real world and start living there.

Lorie advises us that we need to not put temptation in front of our face and not to be easily tempted with quick weight loss diets. She brings out the need to hire a coach to give you accountability and get you on track.

People are overweight. You know why? Two reasons, they’re eating too much food. And they’re eating the wrong stuff. They’re eating calorically dense food, like McDonald’s and not nutritionally dense food like vegetables.

Key Takeaways:

“The other big mistake people make is they think traditional diets actually work.” – Lorie Eber 


“I think dieting is never gonna work. You’ve got to change your lifestyle. You got to plonk yourself in the real world and start living there.” – Lorie Eber 


“It is supremely difficult because of the way the world is all about, eat junk. Eat way too much junk. Use food for every emotion. I’m tired. I’m pissed off. I’m watching Netflix. I’m bored. I need comfort. I deserve a treat. I finally got the kids down. You know, whatever it is. We use food for everything.” – Lorie Eber 


“We are a very food-centric society. So it is very difficult to make these changes on your own. You need to hire somebody like us who’s going to give you a ton of accountability and keep you on track when you get your curveball on Wednesday. And then you go next Monday, next Monday, next Monday.” – Lorie Eber 


“Here’s what you need to do. You need to get your head around, ‘I’m going to live in the real world.” – Lorie Eber
