First and foremost, I wish to thank my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, who has graced me with patience, dedication, wisdom, my Catholic faith and most importantly, the gift of life. In addition, my loving parents (Greg and Lisa), sister (Marianne), brother (Greg Jr.), and late grandmother (Carmen -- God rest her soul), along with caring and supportive friends (Kris, Brian B., Bryan P., Larry, Fetch, Kumo, Derrick, etc) who provided the earthly foundation and positive environment that helped smooth an otherwise difficult path.
If I had to choose one particular trait that has, on its own merit, helped me in not only enhancing my physical appearance, but in achieving many worthwhile goals, it is undoubtedly patience. In fact, although every individual has the capability of achieving impressive weight loss, only a small fraction exhibit the patience necessary to experiment with various theories and techniques, finding effective principles through lengthy, arduous trial and error. I never wavered from my goal of having a low body fat level regardless of the numerous obstacles and temptations, so I again thank God for gracing me with the persistence to overcome negative elements that could easily have derailed my physical fitness pursuits. It is a commonly held belief that prayers, regardless of how frivolous or complex, are answered using God's Heavenly timetable (of which we on earth cannot fully comprehend), and many times His reply does not surface for weeks, months or sometimes years, not because He is too busy or decides to play with our emotions (only we humans exhibit such self centered behavior), but rather since the answer necessitates a delay for our benefit (again, we cannot understand why, but God sees and knows all, therefore responds always with what is truly best for us). Of course, this type of attitude requires both faith and patience on our part when asking God for answers to dilemmas we experience in life, and the Bible clearly tells us that we must always pray with persistence and patience for this very reason, yet these two virtues not only apply to faith, but also benefit all other areas of life, including in our pursuit to lose weight and burn fat naturally.
I firmly believe that a combination of faith in Jesus, persistent effort, and patient demeanor (all three resulting from the grace of God, which I am very thankful for) provide the foundation for achieving many worthwhile goals in life, as these virtues have greatly improved my own mental focus towards such accomplishments. I now hope to share my vast knowledge with those who are inspired and have the dedication to dramatically transform their own lives; remember, I provide you with the exact diet and exercise techniques to lose weight and burn fat without supplements, which, when combined with your unyielding dedication and consistent effort, produce amazing results, but recognize the emphasis on unyielding dedication and consistent effort, as such ideals are not purchased, sold, or bartered, therefore I can only provide the detailed blueprint, and you are the ultimate executor!
Although some categorize a physical improvement goal as superficial, the process of weight loss and fat burning introduces patience, dedication, organization, and self control, traits that are frequently absent in the lives of many, and which contribute to the achievement of other, more vital aspirations (fighting addictions, controlling impulses, living by a sound moral code, etc). Is consistently following a fat burning diet and exercise program vital to overall success in life? Hardly! Physical appearance is the least important factor in examining what we can offer the world, yet can achieving weight loss through a proper fat burning diet and exercise routine enhance character and develop a new, positive attitude in other worthwhile areas? Certainly! Many will find that their road to weight loss and fat burning will enhance focus and effort in achieving other newly established goals, as the character traits required for success in physical fitness and other unrelated areas of life are identical. But, keep in mind that despite our appearance being far less important than the type of person we are and the choices we make, losing weight and burning fat can add literally decades to our lifespan and greatly reduce the risk of disease, which is a priceless side effect that should not be ignored!
I believe that God has a long term plan for my business, because He will only bless what is of value, and I have thankfully been offering my Fat Vanish weight loss diet plan since January of 1997, meaning that for more than 17 years others have successfully achieved dramatic weight loss and fat burning results using my diet and exercise advice, and more importantly, every single man and woman who turns away from weight loss supplements and focuses on achieving their own natural genetic potential through an effective fat burning diet plan is one less individual who is wasting time, money, and risking health; this is one of the most powerful messages that I wish to continue spreading through my Fat Vanish weight loss diet plan. You have likely heard the proverb which states that giving a man fish only amounts in a perishable quantity, while teaching a man to fish provides lifelong nourishment; knowledge, combined with dedication and persistence will lead to continual success in any endeavor, and I hope to provide the necessary tools to those who, for whatever reason, choose to lose weight and burn fat, and wish to do so naturally, without any supplements or drugs.
Has my dedication towards healthy eating and exercise helped to circumvent negative, destructive thoughts and feelings? Yes, and this may in fact prove to be the most important, life enhancing impact of a strict, unwavering focus towards achieving a specific physical fitness goal. Living by the teachings of the Catholic faith is at times challenging, especially in a hedonistic world which attempts to define vice as virtue, and Jesus warns that the world will present such obstacles, yet these temptations that we all must deal with present a true opportunity to show our allegiance to and solidarity with God. In my experience, the key to maintaining such an ideal behavior pattern is a combination of daily prayer and clear, firm goals and aspirations, aided by the strong work ethic that produces discipline and persistence. Most of my high school and college years were spent testing various weight loss and muscle building methods, which left little time to stray into areas that were destructive, while those without clearly defined goals in life many times instead find themselves experimenting with poor decision making (drugs, premarital sex, vandalism, violence, alcoholism, etc). Although I prescribe to strong religious beliefs, even those who have no such framework benefit from focused, structured effort, for similar reasons. How many solid foundations -- physical, spiritual, financial, or otherwise -- are built on hedonistic tendencies (quick indulgence designed to hide a lack of focus and purpose)? Is it a wonder that those referred to in school by their peers as "nerds" accomplish phenomenal success through simply avoiding commonly practiced mentally and physically destructive behaviors (vice), while the beer drinking time wasters achieve virtually nothing? The correlation is in time spent -- concentrate your efforts on a specific worthwhile task, using the proper methods, and you'll produce desired results.
Some claim that we should strive for nothing but pleasure before we die, enjoying ourselves now while we are still breathing, avoiding sacrifices of all kinds, yet this self centered, short sighted attitude does not factor in our purpose on earth, which is to truly love others with the heart of Jesus, and making a sincere effort to achieve weight loss goals not only enhances our mental and physical capability to achieve future, unrelated aspirations, but also reduces the opportunity and desire for truly unproductive, potentially deadly activity, since the mind is disciplined towards achieving a specific worthwhile goal (weight loss). Either way, whether you believe that God judges or we simply vanish into dust, a life of dedication can never harm, only help! I am offering the specific blueprint towards achieving your weight loss and fat burning goals, and you bring forth the effort -- together, the combination is unbeatable. With persistence, motivation and a patient attitude as driving forces, you will succeed at losing weight and burning fat, adding years to your life and greatly enhancing your confidence level.
If you decide to follow the rules I outline in the Fat Vanish weight loss diet plan, your body has no choice but to initiate dramatic fat burning results, yet rubbing the program against your stomach, or even praying for miraculous, effort free progress is, at best, an exciting dream (don't pray when you aren't willing to make a sacrifice; instead, try praying for strength to endure a new, productive lifestyle).
Let me share with you an email I received from a United States Air Force Major who follows my diet and exercise advice; after some time away from my system, he wrote an email to me saying the following:
Amazingly, as I've started to grow out of my youth I've come to truly appreciate the underlying philosophies that resonate in your program. Whether you meant it or not, it truly is a program built around teaching sound principals that allow for success in life. Hard work, discipline, perseverance, and a long term vision are but a few. All to often in our "must have it all and must have it now" society we fail to realize and teach our youth the value in these simple principals. The best things in life, the truly intrinsic rewards, come from our blood, sweat, and tears. A sound body makes for a sound mind -- your safe, natural, and disciplined approach to reaching our fitness goals can be applied in our life endeavors. Kudos.
On a personal note I wanted to extend my gratitude. Annually, about 1% of Air Force combat pilots are selected to attend the highly prestigious Test Pilot School at Edwards AFB, CA. Over three years ago I applied for acceptance to this school. Your program helped give me the confidence to apply, compete, and eventually be selected for this honor. I had spent almost 2 years on your program prior to this application process and found myself more focused, disciplined, fit, and ready to throw my name in the hat for such a challenge. Of course God had blessed me with a decent amount of natural talent as well. But again, I thank you. Next on the agenda is the astronaut program; maybe after several months of your program I'll be ready for that challenge;) Anyway, gotta run, God Bless.
God Bless this courageous man for serving as part of our United States Air Force, and clearly he is practicing virtue in his own life; in fact, he references concepts I wrote about earlier, and because he has implemented positive values as the foundation by which all of his decisions are based, he is achieving success in many worthwhile areas that have no connection with physical fitness.
I have also received emails that I am unfortunately unable to share with the public, but which truly make this project worthwhile to me in more ways than I ever expected (this is God's grace at work, and not anything I can congratulate myself for!). I feel that Major Stahl is a perfect example of how my program can not only improve your body, but also greatly enhance success in unrelated areas (a fact that other users of my system have conveyed to me), so the program I offer is truly a life changing component that I feel everybody (this includes you!) can benefit from.
Nothing worthwhile is achieved through absent effort, which is why I emphasize virtues such as patience, persistence, and dedication, all of which mentally prepare you for the task at hand. I provide merely the weight loss road map, and it's your obligation to initiate, continue, and complete the fat burning journey. Destiny is yours; seize the moment, and God Bless!
