Excel Diet IntroductionI'm Alec Berg, creator of the Excel Diet.
If you have a few minutes to spare I'd like to tell you why and how you will benefit by losing weight and keeping it off on the Excel Diet.
There's a good chance these can be very important minutes for you and us at ExcelDiet.com.
Let me begin with why I created the Excel Diet.
I recently turned 53 years old and was frustrated that my weight was creeping up. At the age of 18 I weighed 150 pounds but 35 years later I was 185 pounds. That's a pound a year for 35 years.
I was thin most of my life and started to notice my pot belly in the reflection of store windows. I tried for many years to lose weight. My to-do list would say "W<170" as a shortcut for "Weigh less than 170 pounds."
I tried a number of diets over the years such as:
Junk food elimination
Many of these diets would work for a short time. I'd reach my goal, but eventually gained the weight back.
One day at work a co-worker collapsed and died in the office. I thought that he had a similar body type to me and it worried me. Could this happen to me? I also thought that the fat on my belly is also getting stuck in my arteries and veins.
I started tracking my weight loss as I did previously on a spreadsheet but this time I was motivated to do what it took to lose the weight. I wasn't sure I could do it as I often failed. It was starting to seem to be impossible.
So on November 21, 2012 I attempted to lose weight using my bathroom scale and Excel. That first day I weighed 182 lbs. Five days later my weight crept up to 185.6 due to the Thanksgiving Day holiday. I was ready to give up but decided that day to get back to my goal weight of losing one pound per week doing whatever I needed to do.
Nine days later on November 30, 2012 I weighed 180.6 lbs. which was below my goal on that date.
On December 15, 2012 while searching for domain names I found that the ExcelDiet.com was available. I started to blog about my weight loss and build up the website, spreadsheet and rules to document what I was doing to help others lose weight also. I wrote my first blog entry on the Excel Diet on December 22nd.
My weight loss was working this time. I kept adjusting what I was doing. I came up with a number of rules that made it possible for me to lose weight. I'm sure they will also work for you. The two simple rules I used were measure and adjust.
If you drive a car down the highway and don't have a speedometer or fuel gauge what happens. You speed and run out of gas. The same is with your weight. If you don't weigh yourself each day you ...
We all remember a time when we were thin and full of energy. When our weight wasn't a concern and we could eat whatever we wanted to. For most of us those habits are still with us. But then life happens and the tyranny of everyday living takes precedence to exercise and healthy eating.
Suddenly you may realize that you've put on a few extra pounds. The demands of life can overwhelm our desire to be fit.
Remember when you looked in the mirror and liked what you saw. We can get you to experience that feeling again though our spreadsheets, website, software, books, coaching and classes. For more than 10 years our company has been developing solutions for major corporations and individuals and have developed the finest method in the world to lose weight and keep it off.
One of the greatest achievement you can do for yourself is to improve your health. No money can buy this. Think for a moment what this makes possible. If you learn just one of our diet laws per day, you'll be an expert at weight loss in a little over a month. In one month you could be down four pounds and be on your way to your weight loss and health goals. In a year you could be down 50 pounds and in five years down 250 pounds.
Think of the benefits to your joints, your heart, health, relationships and self-esteem.
But losing weight is useless unless you can keep the weight off. If you gain back the weight you've lost you were better off not losing it in the first place.
After we teach you to lose the weight you'll then learn how to keep it off you'll be in a unique club of people who've accomplished this. The numbers are staggering, somewhere around 5%.
