Welcome to this week's guest, Robert Lalonde. He is a Canadian author who writes about health, nutrition and weight loss. His books are based on research he carried out to lose weight and regain his health after a battle with cancer. Robert lives in the Georgian Bay area in Ontario, Canada, with his wife Marianne and their Shi Tzu, Lucy.
I started doing research about the causes of cancer while also looking for a good way to lose weight. It was at this point that I came across the link between diet and cancer.
It’s a big problem that affects all of us in one way or another. Even if you’re the one in three that isn’t overweight, the cost to the health care system affects you. I made the decision to contribute to a solution in any way I can.
Here’s the problem in a nutshell. People only think about losing weight and they don’t worry about being able to keep the weight off. And that’s the real problem; keeping it off.
It’s hard to understand why so many people keep making bad diet choices year after year. It’s a real life example of the meme that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting to get a different result. It makes no sense and that’s why I decided to write the book.
What Do You Think Readers Like About Your Book? I’ve always had the ability to take complex things and explain them in simple language. That’s what I do to understand things myself; I take the technical explanation and break it down into simple English to get a deeper understanding of the material.
I think the readers also like that it comes from personal experience. I’ve actually lived it and worked my way through it and I’m sharing that with my readers.
85 percent of dieters regain lost weight within one year of going on a diet! It's even worse than it looks because the average person actually gains an extra 10 pounds for every diet they go on.
What’s missing is an approach you can stick with long term. You will find it easy to keep the weight off with the ELH Diet. Learn how to reset the mechanism that keeps you hungry and drives you to eat the wrong kind of food.
