Overview and summary We have great news!
(For either one, scan down until the part just after the:
Here's more detail if you'd like:
Why I’m doing this is simple. It has two parts.
1. First, I’m a fellow struggler in trying to lose fat and keep it off.
a) Despite my not being overweight my belly is too fat. I'm finally getting rid of it!
b) I've long known how people with horrible lifestyles can easily lose from 40 to well over 400 pounds and keep it off with health oriented lifestyle upgrades. It's even easy if you do it because you don't get more hungry.
c) I now know how to lose my belly fat and my last 24 pounds of excess fat & my efforts are now working. This set of techniques also speeds fat loss for everyone.
d) There are not now really usable and effective fat loss support sites. Some sites are useful for some people; but none are as good as what I now know how to build. They also offer only parts of what people need to know & do. To succeed, people need a more compete solution with all the needed parts!
I know what works, how to teach it, and how to help people solve problems and keep going long enough to make their fat loss permanent.
So I'm now building that fat loss support site and am beginning to build a strong team.
So I'm asking your help. And, if you want to have that help yourself you get a real deal and extra help, become a founding member at a discount at the $50 level.
(Our planned monthly fee of $10 a month for a year is $120. And, we will give our founding members 18 months from when we launch plus immediate information.)
Losing fat that never returns is a challenge that many people don't master.
We show you how to do it in small bits using methods proven to work that you CAN do.
And we give you an unfair advantage to make it likely doing each one will work for you!
e) Once it is launched and fully developed, I know enough about internet marketing to make it the world's biggest weight loss site.
The longer more complete version:
I’m middle aged. I have a very sedentary job. My favorite recreations like reading and watching movies and eating at restaurants all are sedentary too.
Worse, I love food and love to eat. I have a sweet tooth and really like many kinds of sweets. Our daughter noticed when she visited her grandparents that her grandfather almost always finished his dessert first and sometimes had seconds. And, I find I’m my father’s son.
But I still managed to find methods I could do to lose 30 pounds and have kept off 28. And, each of those things I still do!
More recently, I’ve finally learned enough things and tried them that worked that I’m finally beginning to be in real control of my own fat loss process.
I’m well on my way to losing my last 24 pounds of excess fat which is mostly in my belly.
I’ve finally found a kind of strength training that adds muscle that I CAN do. And I can already feel it’s working.
And, I’ve found two things preventing my fat loss beyond what I’d done. So by taking some steps to remove those hidden road blocks, I could lose a bit more fat too! I’ve just begun that and it IS working!
The very good news for our upcoming fat loss support site is this. I’ve found what I’ve learned to do, I can teach other people to do that thing effectively too.
I know how I learned it. I often know why it works. And, many of my family members growing up were superb teachers and coaches. And, I saw first hand what they did.
You show you know your students can succeed and you make it easy to take the steps to begin the process. Then they try it that way and DO succeed. It’s quite literally empowering to be taught that way. I KNOW it is!
So, I now have the beginning of the knowledge base needed to teach people how to lose fat and keep it off.
Plus I’ve studied how to help people do these things and recover if they don’t do them perfectly at first. I didn’t know many things to do at first or do the things I did know to do perfectly at first either.
But our customers will start at the in-control level I’ve reached now.
So, I have real confidence that our fat loss support site will be the most effective for its members that has yet been seen because of this.
Yet there is even more. We now know how to give people several kinds of extra leverage on their fat loss. By using those extra levers, you get great staying power. No matter what problems try to derail you or do cause you set backs, you’re still doing well with some of those levers!
One of the most important of these strategies is to focus on effective methods that produce fat loss with minimum extra hunger and are doable enough to keep as permanent lifestyle upgrades. This is because temporary cutbacks of too many calories do make people hungry all the time. Often this triggers the failsafe famine response that slashes your energy level and makes you hungry and stops your fat loss.
That leads to not losing all your excess fat and not keeping any of it off!
Our solution, by contrast, delivers permanent results.
To master these strategies and keep doing them long enough DOES become dramatically more likely with good and ongoing support.
Therefore, our fat loss support site will teach these effective methods and provide that support!
We really do expect to get to an 80 to 95% success rate or better!
So, if you have fat you’d like to get rid off, keep off, and be in control of the process, we’d love to have you as a beta customer and help you do just that.
But more than that, as a beta customer, we will build the parts first that you want most or think would help you most.
We’ll do our best to include solutions to the problems you’ve had and want to solve and do that first also.
Our first version will literally be custom built to deliver what YOU want!
We have many parts already to start with. Everyone who signs up as a beta customer at the $50 level will get those articles by email.
Losing fat that never returns is a challenge that many people don't master.
We show you how to do it in small bits you CAN do and give you an unfair advantage to make it likely doing each one will work for you!
So, if that appeals to you, see our $50 beta customer section and sign up.
2. In terms of the good we can do if we reach our larger goals, this is a very high impact project!
The second reason is we hope to help our economy avoid the huge & excessive drag from avoidable health care costs!
Out of control obesity kills people and makes them suffer too.
Michael Bloomberg stated that out of control obesity kills 5,000 people every day!
The study his comment is based on is quite accurate by the way. The fattening foods and drinks ARE known to cause the diseases producing these deaths!
That's in addition to the billions of dollars a month obesity costs in avoidable health care costs.
In the process it makes many people sick and less able. It even hurts -- because obese people have more joint damage and pain and other minor pains than people who aren't.
If we are as successful as we intend and plan to be, we will change the way the majority of people live and eat from harmful and fattening to the reverse.
The solutions are simple but getting enough people to use them is not easy to fix and without a change agent like the one we are building it may not be fixed!
Completely avoidable health care costs, or very nearly so, are now so high they are beginning to brake our economy.
This fact is enough to keep us in recessionary times BY ITSELF. These problems are wasting BILLIONS of dollars a week!
Right now, almost everyone has limited health coverage and it costs three times what it used to cost for better coverage.
So people can’t buy other products with the money that costs them and our economy stagnates.
YOU may be poorer yourself because of these endless health care coverage increases!
The underlying costs of fighting these avoidable diseases are rapidly going up. Worse, they are mostly ineffective and even cause other more expensive and harmful problems as side effects.
The methods that produce permanent fat loss include switching from foods and drinks which cause that health harm and fatten those who consume them -- TO foods and drinks that support health and a body free of excess fat instead.
Our socially beneficial mission is to cause the majority of our people to switch from doing it all wrong to doing it all right.
The evidence suggests that can cut our health care costs by up to 75% and help avoid any further increases.
Even better, the people who do these things right will be more productive and effective than they otherwise would have been.
And, they will do it for many more years! They will do it decades longer in many cases.
So, our economy will produce more value at far lower cost once that happens!
We’ll still have other problems to be sure. But healthcare costs will no longer tie one hand behind our backs in solving those other problems and be one of the worst problems in the list too!
Imagine a world where things like obesity, type 2 diabetes, and heart attacks and strokes and mental decline have become rare and most people avoid having those problems slow them down or stop them from working or enjoying their lives
So, if you are one who’d like to join us in that fight, go to our $5,000 level or our $1,000 level or our $500 level or our $100 level and help us get to it!
In fact, even $5 will help. (We have that level too!)
What We Need & What You Get
What we need and what it will enable us to do.
The $35,000 (or the smaller or larger amount we raise) will go to three main places--and for the needed legal work and paperwork and tracking also.
1. The most important of these at first is to build the technical parts of the support site. I'm not technical and short on time even if I was.
Each part needs to be easy to use and understand. Some people in our market won't guess where things might be hidden that an easy to use site would simply show directly.
Each part from sign up to renewal to using each feature on the site needs to operate error free 100% of the time. And, it needs to be able to go seemlessly from a few users a day to over 10,000 users a day and then to more than that with short notice.
People who can do this kind of work exist. But to get one who will build it quickly for us and who also speaks regular English and not just be able to talk to other web developers etc and do excellent work and repair any glitches found very quickly will cause us to need to budget as much as possible to do this. I'm hoping this will cost $10,000 or less. But I'd be unsurprised if it costs more.
2. I'll need some money to defray my personal expenses as we build the site. $9,000 will likely be enough; but $15,000 would be better.
3. We will form a legal entity, and LLC at first, most likely; and set up books to keep track of our funds for taxes and to keep us profitable and in business. We'll need $2500 to start and $5,000 or more would be better.
4. ALL of the balance will be spent to do the marketing to get new members for the site. The more new members we get and keep, the more succesful we will be both as a business and in helping more people succeed with fat loss.
$5,000 might well be enough to start the ball rolling downhill. But $25,000 would bring faster results. And, $50,000 would be faster still.
What kinds of people will support us and what will they get:
1. The most important are those who want the service we are creating for themselves and who will sign up at the $50 level to be charter and beta customers.
But it all starts with launching our site, shaping it to deliver what people want most, and building it to the first 2,000 members. To get there we have to start first!
Help us do that and everyone wins!
