Losing Weight And FUN!


Losing Weight And FUN!

If losing weight is NOT fun, won't it be very difficult to reach your goal weight?

If losing weight is NOT fun, won't it be nearly impossible to maintain your goal weight?

The changes that you make when losing weight are simply trading in old habits for better habits in the areas of diet, exercise and mindset.

Most of us think that losing weight is 'Difficult' and 'No Fun'. That's our first mistake.

Weight loss can be much easier than you ever expected!

There are so many tricks and secrets to make weight loss easier. The first is to start with our mindset and attitude. This time, make yourself a promise to really make an effort....and to focus your effort on finding, learning, and implementing ways to make your new journey easier and more fun.

Your new look does not have to take the fun out of life.

A few tips:

#1: Make eating fun. Find and add new recipes to your eating plan on a weekly basis. Make sure that those recipes are ones that you will love.

#2: Made it a point to find an exercise plan that you will enjoy. Finding the right exercise means that you will look forward to exercise.

#3: Have fun. Celebrate your new life. Make having fun a new habit.

#4: Look for the fun. Just about everything we do can be viewed as a joy or a drag. Look to children and pets to help remind you how much fun the little things are.

Your new lifestyle can and will be fun. It takes just a little effort at first. Once it becomes a habit, you will see 'losing weight' as easier than you had expected.

Thanks for reading, my friends, I wish you success on your weight loss journey.

The Dog Must Diet

The Dog Must Diet

Even though you 'voluntarily' go on a diet, you may feel as if someone else is in charge.

You may feel like someone other than yourself is in control and forcing you to do something that you do not want to do. 

Step back, and have a talk with your brain.  HUH?  Your brain is supposed to be your ally, but if you forget to bring it on board,

it can be your enemy. 


One of the Five Crucial Factors of weight loss success is about recruiting your brain as an ally.

The Five Factors are available in our member area and membership is free.

Why Is Losing Weight Impossible?



Why Is Losing Weight Impossible?

I want to reassure you that losing weight is possible, but...until about 95% of us make a few simple changes, losing weight WILL be IMPOSSIBLE. 

When I realized that long term weight loss continues to elude 95+ out of 100 thought was WHY? 

I have found out why. 

I am George Pierce, founder of Win At Losing Weight, and the reason is that successful weight loss requires MORE than just diet and exercise.  

OH NO!  I am telling you that weight loss is impossible and now I am adding insult to injury by saying there is yet more than diet and exercise.  If the pursuit of weight loss has been driving you crazy, my sharing with you that there is even more, is meant to enlighten you and not to push you over the edge.  

There are TWO THINGS that I feel that you should know about losing weight.

#1:  One of my weight loss discoveries is that anyone can succeed at losing weight, once they learn a few simple things that have been missing.  You can learn more at Win At Losing Weight (WALW) website.

#2:  Most of us are not aware that we, ourselves, often stand on our own way.  This is not another insult, it is an observation that is true.



W. Clement Stone and President Gerald Ford


If you have been standing in your own way, of course, not intentionally, the following quotes from W. Clement Stone might help.


There is little difference in people, but that little difference makes a big difference. The little difference is attitude. The big difference is whether it is positive or negative.

You can develop a burning desire to succeed. How? Keep your mind on the things you want and off the things you don't want.

To become an expert achiever in any human activity, it takes practice... practice... practice.

Have the courage to say no. Have the courage to face the truth. Do the right thing because it is right. These are the magic keys to living your life with integrity.


Our New Look!


Our New Look!

Win At Losing Weight is taking on a new look.  Technical difficulties with our old site created a need for a change.  The change has resulted in opting for a faster loading site.  Our new site builder is supposed to be the fastest.  Whether it is or not, it certainly is fast and faster loading is more important than ever.  As more and more folks use their phones to access websites, speed makes a real difference.  Phones are presently slower than computers, so a slow site will be very slow for someone viewing it on their phone.  

Much of the content has been moved to our new site, but  since our weight loss content is significant, there is still more to do.  As we continue to move content, our goal is to also update and improve and expand our content.  

The one area in which you will notice this change is the Diet Review Section.  At present, you will see two lists of diet reviews and you will continue to see two until the transformation is complete.  We are sorry for any confusion.  Our decision is not meant to confuse you, but to make sure that you do not miss out on a review that is important to you.

Once done, you will find that our newest version of Win At Losing Weight will be bigger, better, and faster.  

Thanks for bearing with us.

Why some of the most popular diets are the worst!


Why some of the most popular diets are the worst!  

The weight loss community (the folks that need to shed a few pounds) have a couple of strikes against them.  Strikes that they may not be aware of. 

Strike #1:  They are tired!

Most dieters are tired of failing at weight loss.  They have not actually failed, the weight loss industry has failed them, but the industry has done a pretty good job of convincing everyone that it is our fault, not their fault.  The result is that dieters tend to follow the crowd, in hopes that the latest or newest diet is THE ONE!  The one diet that finally works, the one diet that they can stay on and enjoy.  

Strike #2:  The diets are not about helping us!

Most diets are created for one reason and unfortunately, that is PROFIT.  Whether they help us, whether these diets even work is secondary.  Profit is the driving force.   

Most of these 'for profit' diets are a spin off of one of the top diets...the really good diets such as the Mediterranean or the DASH Diet.  That is sort of good news, but the modifications to these diets are usually ways to speed up your results. 

Faster weight loss is what we want...but not necessarily our best option.  Most experts seem to feel that rapid weight loss is not a healthy strategy. 

In my opinion, many of these faster versions create unnecessary difficulty.  If a diet is too difficult, we are probably going to quit after a short while.  

My Point:

Forget about what the crowd is doing, look for the diet that fits you best.  If a diet is difficult, ask yourself if that is going to be something that you can overcome or will the level of difficulty overcome you. 

Our website, Win At Losing Weight, is all about helping you to lose weight.  Our membership is optional but it will provide you with a few basic weight loss skills that no one teaches.  These skills will make weight loss easier...and membership is free.  Visit us now... 


Before you begin your diet!


Before you begin your diet!

In order to make your diet or weight loss plan easier, you can access two quick tests.  

The first test is very simple and will take just a few seconds, but it will give you a good idea 

where you stand.  The second test involves a BMI Calculator, which is more scientific.  

You will find a free calculator with all the information you need.


If you think of weight loss as a journey, then you will need to know where you are

going and how to get there.  You also need to know your starting point.  These quick tests 

will help.

Attitude = Altitude!


Attitude = Altitude!

Working on your attitude can improve your weight loss chances.  Most of us do not really have a bad attitude, but we accidentally allow our attitude to be 'confused'. 

This 'confused' state usually is a result of doubt.  When you are not sure that you will reach your goal or you are not sure that you can maintain your weight loss or give up a certain food or foods, then your brain is faced with confusion. 

How can you eliminate doubt?

Sometimes we cannot easily and quickly eliminate our doubt.   Sometimes it takes time, but in the mean time, we can choose to do our best to dismiss doubt, to push doubt away, to say I choose to not doubt today or I choose to not let doubt stand in my way. 

Knowledge is a powerful way to deal with doubt.  In other words, the more you learn about losing weight, exercise, and developing a strong weight loss mindset, the better you can combat doubt.

Our 30 training is free and can help you eliminate doubt and confusion.  Visit us for more information.

The FullBar Diet Review


The FullBar Diet Review

The FullBar Diet is really a strategy to produce a feeling of fullness or of being less hungry.

You eat a FullBar, a granola type bar before two meals each day along with drinking a glass of water.  

The result is that you are less hungry and therefore eat less which promotes weight loss.

The diet has some attractive benefits, but some serious flaws.  Click here to read my review.

Eat This, Not That Diet Review


Eat This, Not That Diet Review

I'll let you know up front that this diet is easy to follow and worth considering.  I am happy to be making this post.  The problem that i find is that many of the diets that are so popular are not worth recommending.  It is nice when you find one that is worthy of recommendation. 

Easy and loosely structured describe the Eat This, Not That Diet.  For many of us that is a plus, but if you need structure, this diet may not be a good fit for you.

Thanks for reading.

Much success,

The Blood Type Diet Review

The Blood Type Diet Review


Following a diet based on your blood type?

Dr. Peter J. D'Adamo, a naturopath, says that your blood type diet determines the foods that you should eat.  His approach to weight loss is based on your blood type with significant differences in diet for each blood type.

The Diabetes Section


The Diabetes Section is open!

Recently the Diabetes Section opened at Win At Losing Weight.   If you are concerned with losing weight, it may be a good idea to learn a little about diabetes.  Extra weight seems to trigger diabetes.  What you will find is help and information, for example a list of diabetes forums and communities, resources, and more.  

Do You Have Diabetes?

Many of us have diabetes and do not know that we do.  You will also find a diabetes risk test which will help you to determine if you have diabetes as well as your chances of getting diabetes.

Begin with YOU!

If you want to make a change and do it right, you have to begin with yourself.  

Long term permanent weight loss is an area that most weight loss plans and programs avoid or skirt around.  Part of the reason is that you are no longer a customer, but much of the reason is that YOU do not want to go do not want to think or talk long term weight loss or permanent weight loss.

Do you know why?  

You probably do not know why, and that is OK.  The reason why you and nearly everyone else avoids thinking 'permanent weight loss' is that you and almost everyone else do not believe that you are able to achieve long term weight loss.  

You think to yourself, "'Short term'...yes, I can handle that."  What you think you are going to get is what you get.  Until you CHANGE your mindset to long term, short term is all you expect and is all you will get.

Can You Fix This?

Of course, you can.  It is simply a matter of knowing how.  There is a simple process that no one has every told you about that helps you to go from doubt to conceptualizing to believing to knowing that you can.  

As a free member of Win At Losing Weight, you will learn this process and more in your 30 day email training course.  See why our name Win At Losing Weight is so appropriate.   Click here to visit our site, click Join Us to become a free member.


Extra Weight Conflict

Extra Weight Conflict

If you are carrying around extra weight, you are part of the majority.  70% of us need to shed a few pounds or more.

The problem is that losing weight creates conflict within us. Just the thought of losing weight can create problems for many of us.  In order to lose weight, we think of ourselves as having to make choices.   Having to make choices is OK if not good.  In fact, the choices that we would need to make would help us to improve our health, our lifestyle, energy, appearance and more. 

So where is the conflict?

The conflict is that we view ourselves as making good choices that we SHOULD want to make, but we do not want to make!??  

You, nor I, nor anyone likes change.  

Your and no one else wants to do things that we do not want to do (good for us or not)!

In addition, weight loss is often associated with failure (for many of us), and no one wants to fail.  The average dieter begins and fails 4 diets per year.  

To make matters worse, we have a simple formula for weight loss, "Eat less, move more!"  

Guess What!  This age old weight loss formula is WRONG, because it is incomplete.  And what you do not know about weight loss is hurting and will continue to hurt you until you discover what is missing.  

If you would like to learn how to make weight loss easier, if you would like to learn simple skills and strategies that no one ever told you about, if you would like to change your lifestyle without fear of failing and because you actually want to make these changes, I invite you to become a member of Win At Losing Weight.  You will learn all this and much more.  You will learn how to WIN at losing weight!

In The Time You Take To Read This, You Can Begin!



In The Time You Take To Read This, You Can Begin!

The most important step in losing weight is the first step.  The first step actually begins in your head.  Your first step is when you make up you mind.  In that instant, you have taken your first and most important step.  

We can think about losing weight for weeks or months and until we take 'action', nothing is going to happen.  That action, your action and mine, will not be taken until we make a conscious decision to act.

You have in your brain (as well all do), a figurative switch.  Let's call it a 'decision switch'.  You can leave the switch in the off position, or you can flip it to the on position.  It is your choice, it is your call, it is your decision.

Losing weight is not as simple as making a decision to begin, but until you make that decision, until you consciously flip that switch, you will not take action.  I hope that you will decide to make a decision to lose weight and that the action that you take is to join us at Win At Losing Weight.  

Membership is free and in 30 days (thanks to a free ecourse that new members are automatically enrolled in), you will have acquired weight loss knowledge and tools and skills that you never knew existed.

Detox Diets, so popular but not so good.


Detox Diets Revealed!

Detox Diets tend to PREY on wannabe dieters.  They know that you want to lose weight and

to lose 10 pounds or even 20 pounds in a short time is alluring.   In addition, you also get detoxified.  

Most detox diets and detox products such as pills are NOT good choices.  

In my Detox Diet Review, you can learn more about the positives and the negatives of Detox Dieting.  

There is one Detox Diet, however, that I feel may be worthy of consideration.  Learn more....

Even the best diets have flaws!


Even the best diets have flaws!

When looking for a diet, do not be quick to judge.  Look at the positives

and more importantly, look at the negatives.  If you cannot find any negatives,

that may not be a good sign.  

Use your search box, type in the name of the diet plan or program and add

negatives or side effects and search or go to our home site, Win At Losing Weight.  

Choosing the diet that is right for you is crucial.  There is more to weight loss

success than finding the right diet, but success with the WRONG diet is not going to happen.  


The bottom line is that all diets have flaws.  

You need to know those flaws as well as the positives in order to make a quality decision.


What should you look for in an exercise plan?

wldw-exercise-to-lose-weight-fastexercise girl with tape

What should you look for in an exercise plan?

When considering an exercise plan, the following are a list of what to look for:

  • Step by step process
  • Aerobic (cardio training)
  • Anaerobic (muscle or strength training)
  • Ability to customize
  • Includes monitoring your food intake
  • 30 minutes or more of exercise per session
  • Warm up (usually stretches or low intensity movements)
  • Cool down (also stretches or low intensity movements)
  • Sleep and rest
  • Short and long term (maintenance) strategy

You must also use your own common not over step your abilities.

You may be amazed at what you can achieve, but you must work your way to the top, so do not bite off more than you can chew. 

If you are beginner, then start with a beginner plan or a customizable plan that will work for you.


The benefits that you will receive from a good exercise plan
go far beyond weight loss!

Did you know that exercise dramatically helps your brain! Thank goodness, you discovered this fact before it was too late-grin!  

You will find that in just a short while that you will be thinking more clearly and more quickly.  Your mood will improve.  You will also be helping to stave off dementia in later years.  

Exercise will also improve muscle tone, create more muscle mass, and reduce fat mass.  Guess what? Muscles burn more calories.  Even when you are not exercising you will be burning more calories!   
Ladies, you are more likely to lose weight more slowly than men, since you normally have less muscle.  

Exercise promotes a stronger heart and a lower heart rate which is great for your heart and your circulatory system.  

Exercise also keeps your bones strong, helps you to relax and sleep better, improves your immune system, and even improves your skin.

Remember that exercise is an essential part of the weight loss success triangle.

Nasty Truth about Losing Weight!


The nasty truth!  continued

#1: Garbage!

So let's start by talking about the Weight Loss GARBAGE!

You get too much wrong information, we call that weight loss garbage. Most of this garbage comes in the form of hype about weight loss products that DO NOT WORK!

Our Lipozene review, Hydroxycut review and our Sensa review are a few examples of 'Miracle' products that we feel you should avoid and consider as garbage.

Our second reason is the root of why weight loss does not work!


You get too much wrong information and bad information, you already know that we label that as weight loss garbage.

You do not get crucial information that you need, we call that the third side of the weight loss triangle. This missing side, this missing information is essential for your long term success at losing weight. Unfortunately, no one tells you about it.

What is amazing to us is that even the most reputable diets omit this information! Perhaps this is on purpose...once you succeed you are no longer a customer.

This new information may be hard to wrap your mind around and you may not be relating to what we are attempting to share with you. That is understandable.

We have all been led to believe that successful weight loss equals diet and exercise and nothing more.

Since you are being exposed to what may seem to you to be a completely different aspect of weight loss, allow us to share the weight loss success triangle.

Two sides are weak, three sides are strong.

Weight loss success has THREE sides, not TWO!

Nearly all weight loss programs focus on two sides, diet and exercise. Unfortunately, they pay little to no attention to the third and essential side. This third side encompasses areas such as preparation, research, match making, attitude, escape routes, and mindset.

Without help with the third leg, you have almost no chance of long term success at losing weight. Your true chance of long term weight loss success is only 3%, your true chance of failure at long term weight loss is a whopping 97%!
It is our mission to help you to learn what the 3% know!
animated question mark in mosaic mind

It is what you do not yet know that has been holding you back and we hope that you will allow us to help you change that.


We have outlined an overview of what the 3% know and are doing. This overview is called The Five Crucial Factors. Missing out on just one of these five factors spells doom for your chances of success.

Next we have put together a 30 day email training course that will properly prepare you to succeed. All this and more are available to you as a free lifetime member of Weight Loss Disclosure Website.

What you do not know is hurting you!

Understanding or even believing that there is more to weight loss than you realize may be difficult. Allow us to share this example to help make things a bit clearer.

ceiling lamp

When you want to turn on the ceiling lamp, you flip a switch..right?

light switch on wall

When the switch goes to the On position,

the light goes on. But what happens when you

blow a fuse or flip a circuit breaker?


You can flip that wall switch again and again and again, but the ceiling lamp will not go on. No matter how much you try, the light does NOT go on.

Picture your 'essential missing information' as the equivalent of that blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker. Now consider that the breaker has been tripped and that you are a three year old child who knows nothing about fuses or circuit breakers!

You keep flipping that light switch or that weight losss switch, again and again...the light is supposed to come on but it does not. you are supposed to lose weight and keep it off but it does not happen...if only someone would teach you about fuses and circuit breakers, if only someone would teach you about what has been missing in your weight loss efforts!

Are You Serious?

If you are serious about losing weight, then we ask that you try to understand that what you have not yet been told about weight loss has been holding you back.

It is not you, it is probably not your exercise plan or your diet choice, it not your fault, it is ESSENTIAL INFORMATION THAT IS MISSING!

We encourage you to get started now at no cost.

Potatoes, Friend Or Foe?



Potatoes, Friend Or Foe?

Potatoes are considered a bad choice by many experts due to a high glycemic index. You may have heard that we should eat colorful foods because of high antioxidants, and we feel that is not bad advice. On the other hand, when we hear 'stay away from white carbs', we do not concur.

Some white carbs such as sugar and withe bread should be avoided. On the other hand, there are many white carbs that are not our enemy.

Cauliflower is an excellent source of vitamin C and fiber and minerals. Cauliflower is one of those foods that are thought to help prevent excess belly fat.


White foods such as mushrooms, onions, and garlic are high in nutrients and antioxidants.

Potatoes are thought by some to be our enemy, we disagree. Potatoes are a great source of vitamins and minerals as well as a reasonable source of fiber. We consider potatoes to be a healthy carb as long as they are eaten in the right form. The right form is with the skin and NOT fried.

Seven to Nine Potatoes per day!

A recent study was made where some of the participants had to eat at least 7 to 9 whole potatoes per day! The potato eaters actually lost weight! Surprisingly, potatoes contain only about 100 to 120 calories each. Seven to nine potatoes per day would certainly be filling.

If you love potatoes, we are not saying to eat seven or nine per day, but an occasional potato should not stop you from losing weight.

The Shocking Problem With Eating Fruit!

The Shocking Problem With Eating Fruit!  
by George Pierce
George Pierce

What you are about to discover are some little known facts about eating fruit that you need to know and one fact about eating fruit that may shock you!  

Certainly, making fruit a part of your diet seems to be a wise and healthy choice!

Let me share something about eating fruit that might surprise you. Without this information, your good fruit eating habits, may not be so good!
If fruit is so great, how can there be a problem?                                        

Most of you probably have fruit after a meal...sort of like dessert...mmm, and you might  have fruit on your cereal, and a glass of juice with breakfast and often a glass of juice with your other meals.  

Not knowing when to eat fruit, is a problem that most of us share!??

girl pointing to alarm clock

When we eat fruit matters!  

You should eat fruit on an empty stomach.  After you eat a piece of fruit, it is supposed to go directly through your stomach and into your intestines.  When you eat fruit after eating other foods, you are preventing the fruit from being able to go straight through your stomach.  Even worse, when the fruit comes into contact with these other foods and digestive juices in your stomach, it causes the entire mass to begin to spoil which means fermentation and rotting and acid.  This putrification can also cause you to bloat and have gas.  

The Secret is to Eat fruit before a meal or on an empty stomach!  

Eating fruit with a meal or after a meal is WRONG!  

Tips that you want to know about eating fruit:
  • Most of us think of some fruits such as oranges, lemons, or limes as acidic.  
  • All fruits actually become alkaline in our bodies.
  • Eating whole raw fruit is better than drinking its juice.  
  • If you drink fruit juice, only drink FRESH juice.

Raw Fruits provide us with a wealth of nutrients!

  • Berries: high in antioxidants, which protect us from cancer causing free radials.
  • Guava:  very high in Vitamin C and high in fiber as well.

Obesity - Overweight - Defined

Obese or may be wondering...what exactly does that mean?

Being obese or overweight is determined by your body weight relative to your height.

One of the best measurements or indicators is called BMI.  BMI stands for Body Mass Index.  An easy way to help you to relate to your BMI is to consider BMI as to think of it as your thinness or thickness.  A low BMI means that you are thin, a high BMI means that your body is thick.  

If your BMI exceeds 25, you are considered obese.  Even a few pounds over your ideal weight can be surprisingly harmful.   I invite you to watch:   Why even slightly overweight is dangers, a video by Markus Rothkranz in The Horrors of Being Over Weight section of our forum.

Most experts seem to feel that once your BMI exceeds 25 or if your body weight exceeds your normal weight by 20%, you are at serious risk for health problems and early death.  

Some of your risks are:

Heart Disease
High Blood Pressure
Type 2 Diabetes
Gall Bladder Disease
Gall Stones
Shortness of Breath
Sleep Apnea
Compromised Life Style
Reduced Life Span

Garfield explains weight gain as we get older

Many of us may think that gaining weight is 'normal'.  You may feel that once you have children or once you reach a certain age, you gain weight.  Worst of all, you may feel deep down that weight gain is beyond your control, so any efforts that you make to lose weight are only temporary.  

I am happy to inform you that you are WRONG!

The fact is that a 'healthy lifestyle' means a healthy weight.  

The fact is that you do have control over your 'lifestyle' and your weight.  

The fact is that you are NOT doomed to fail at weight loss!

I am George Pierce and I have put together the Win At Losing Weight website.  I invite you to visit and become a free member.  As a member, you will learn the basics of weight loss and the basic skills of weight loss that you never knew existed.  You will be exposed to 'The Five Crucial Factors'.  I have discovered five factors that are essential to weight loss.  Miss out on just one and you will not succeed long term.  You will also have member access to tools such as a BMI calculator, resources, library and more.  Best of all, your membership includes a 30 day training course like no other.  In the next thirty days, you can learn the weight loss skills that you have never been told about, skills you simply did not know existed.

I urge you to no longer separate yourself from long term weight loss and allow yourself to get the help to Win At Losing Weight.  

I thank you for reading, my friend.  Much success with your weight loss endeavors.

Failure is the essence of success.

Failure is the essence of success.

I often compare weight loss to riding a bike.   Unfortunately, you must be willing to fail and fail in order to finally succeed.  At the Win At Losing Weight (WALW) website, I have put together a one of a kind training course, that is meant to take failure out of the weight loss equation.  

Learning to ride a bike requires a few basic skills.  Until you learn them you will fail.  Losing weight long term requires a few basic skills.  Until you learn them, you will fail.  It is not your fault, that is just how it is.  At WALW, my aim is to provide you with those skills and give you a proven path to follow.  

The fact is that most of us believe that we already know how to lose weight.  You probably feel the same way.  

Sorry, but it is not true.  

If most of us really knew how to lose weight and how to keep it off, you and nearly everyone else would not be reading this post. We would not need to.  Most of us would be maintaining a healthy lifestyle and a healthy weight. About 70% of us need to lose weight.  A large majority do try and that is good.  Only 5% of us succeed, however.  That means that 95% of us fail and fail again.  

Yes, failure is the essence of success, but until we learn the skills necessary to succeed, we will continue to fail.  

For weight loss information like you have never seen, I invite you to visit Win At Losing Weight.

For training and skills like you have never seen, I invite you to become a member.

Five of the Most Frequently Asked Weight Loss Questions


Five of the Most Frequently Asked Weight Loss Questions

You can probably relate to one or more of these five questions.  Perhaps you have asked one yourself. Below you will find five of the most frequently asked questions regarding losing weight.

If I am on a diet, do I still need to exercise to lose weight?

Are all calories the same?

Does it matter what time you eat?

Perhaps, one of the most important questions is:

How many calories should I eat?

A more recent question and one that I may answer differnetly than most is:

What is gluten?

You, the Internet, and Weight Loss


call center

You, the Internet, and Weight Loss

Although there is more information about weight loss on the net than we could ever read, nearly all of the information is flawed!  


You need to be aware that:

  1. What you read on the net is often embellished, especially regarding weight loss, even to the point of lying.
  2. What you read about most weight loss products, programs, diets, etc. often omits the negatives or plays them down.
  3. What you read about losing weight is often written by someone whose goal is to sell you something.
  4. Worst of all, nearly every weight loss plan fails to provide you with the needed skills and mindset information to succeed.

You need weight loss disclosure, but you do not get it on the net, or elsewhere, so your all important weight loss decision or choice is based on incomplete information.  Making any decision without enough information is a recipe for disaster.  Yet, the weight loss industry has us convinced that our weight loss failures are OUR FAULT, not their fault.  

truth sign made up of the word lies

The TRUTH is that your lack of information, lack of truth, training, skills, and mindset training are what is holding you back.  It is not your fault!  Weight loss is simply a matter of knowing how, but no one seems to want you and I to know how.   

If you never learn how to ride a bike, if no one ever teaches you the simple skills you need to know, your bike rides will always end in failure!  The same applies to losing weight.  

I am George Pierce, founder of Win at Losing Weight.  My aim is to help you find the whole truth, so you can make accurate and intelligent weight loss decisions...decisions that can be life changing.   My reviews and articles include the good and especially, the bad.

Over 15 Million People Love This Weight Loss Exercise Plan!


Exercise is certainly an integral part of weight loss success.  Some people are exercise fanatics that are addicted to exercise, but most of us avoid it.  

Why do most of us avoid exercise?

We consider it to be a four letter word called WORK and WORK is not fun.  Since most of us have never learned the skills that we need to lose weight, we may not admit it, but our mindset is that our weight loss plans will eventually fail.  So failure is imminent, deep down, some of us feel that exercise is therefore a waste of time.  Shame on us and we know it, but since we feel that our weight loss efforts are doomed, why should we work at something (exercise) that does not work.  

Of course we are wrong and we know it, but our emotional side which is sure of doom will win.

How can we stop this thought process? 


You have just made a significant first step toward a weight loss break through!  HUH?  

In order to WIN at losing weight, you need a diet plan (eating lifestyle) that will work for you in the short term and in the long term, one that you can live with and enjoy.  In addition, you need an exercise plan that you enjoy, one that you look forward to.  You need to learn a few simple weight loss skills that will help you with improving your thought process regarding weight loss as well as your habits.


Get the help you need to WIN at losing weight!

You will find the help you need with diet and exercise at Win At Losing Weight.  Some diets are great, many are a waste of your time, a few are literally deadly.  My website will help you make a smart choice.  About the only negative regarding exercise is when it is done to excess or done wrong.  An exercise that has over 15,000,000 participants weekly and continues to grow is Zumba Dance.  Why?  It is a great way to burn calories, but more importantly, it is FUN.  My Zumba Dance Review includes a free workout for beginners so you can see if Zumba is for you.   

You will learn the simple weight loss skills that no one has told you, should you decide to become a free member.  These skills and much more are a  part of a free 30 day training course for members only.  

Weight loss is not impossible and does not have to end in failure, weight loss is a matter of knowing how.

Why Your Diet Runs Out Of Gas!

Why Your Diet Runs Out Of Gas!


Several years ago, a Yeti family was discovered in the Himalayas.  The two adults parents were named Bobo and Clara and the two children were named Mike and Molly.  Over the last several years, the Yeti family has been taught and trained and civilized.  Their brain size was found to be larger than a human's brain and their intelligence superior.  Amazingly, Bobo and Clara have learned almost all the skills as regular adult humans, including learning how to drive.  

Recently, funds were allocated for Bobo and Clara to have their own car with a full tank of gas.  The car is a nice used car, and even though Bobo and Clara are in a remote region which cannot be disclosed, they have been driving during the wee hours of the morning.  

After several hundred miles, a strange thing happened.  Bobo and Clara's car ran out of gas,  As smart as Bob and Clara are, no one ever thought of telling them that there was a 'secret ingredient' that made their car run.   What is shocking is that it was learned that if no one had ever rescued Bob and Clara... their driving days would have been over for good.  

Bigfoot Bobo
Early photo of Bobo

An even more surprising discovery was made when it was decided not to tell Bob and Clara that their car needed this secret ingredient.  The tank was filled, Bob and Clara drove once more until...yes...they ran out of gas.  

The above story is fiction, of course, but the point is true and relevant.

When it comes to losing weight, most diets and exercise routines run out of gas.  Just like Bob and Clara, if you are never informed that there is a secret ingredient, your diet will run out of gas again and again!  

suv in snow

But you know and I know and we all know that there is diet and there is exercise and if we diet and exercise, we lose weight.  Although this seems true, there are certain skills (weight loss skills) as well as a few secrets that we must know about, in order to succeed at any long term diet plan or program.  If we never learn the simple skills of  losing weight, we are doomed to run out of gas until we do.

I am George Pierce.  I have been able to reach and maintain a healthy weight for 20+ years.  I do not claim to be an expert, but I have done a huge amount of research.  I have discovered that most people simply do not know the necessary skills for losing weight and for keeping that weight off.  It is not their fault, it is not your fault.  In fact, it is possible, and probable that the weight loss industry does not want you to learn these skills.  Until you learn, you will always be a customer.  

I stopped being a weight loss industry customer years ago.  I encourage you to stop.   Allow me to visit my website where I will be happy to help you learn you need to know for free.  Click here for a free tour.

Six Ways To Lose Belly Fat!

animated tape on waist weight loss

Six Ways To Lose Belly Fat!

Can you actually target belly fat?  According to Jorge Cruise, author of  The Belly Fat Cure, you can.   Surprisingly, in a six week study, exercise that targeted the abdomen only, had no effect on lowering waist size or reducing belly fat per the NIH.
Most experts seem to agree that the following six tips will help you to lose weight and belly fat.

#1:  Eat more fiber.  A study shows that adding 14 grams of fiber per day reduced weight by about 4.5 pounds in 4 months.  What fiber does is help you to feel fuller longer.

#2:  Exercise.  Exercise burns calories which contributes to weight loss.  Swimming, running, and walking are excellent exercises to reduce belly fat, per the National Institute of Health.

#3:  Eat less sugar.  Sugar and added sugar is not healthy.  Sugar not only adds calories, it slows our metabolism.

#4:  Eat more protein.  Eating more protein is a long established method for losing weight.

#5:  Lower your carbs.  Cutting your intake of carbohydrates, helps reduce your appetite, and ultimately your waistline.  Limiting carbs is proven to be 2-3 times more effective than lowering fat.   Lowering carbs also results in  water loss, so results are almost immediate.  Lowering carbs is thought to specifically target losing belly fat.

#6:  Keep Track.  People who track what they eat , lose more weight.

Keeping track is quite easy and simple.  

The USDA offers SuperTracker, a free online tracking resource.

Congratulations on finding my blog with a different and unique approach to weight loss.  Welcome and thank you for visiting.

So many people try so hard to win at losing weight and fail. Are all these people doing something wrong? Is every one who fails at losing weight to blame? The answer to both these questions is NO. An emphatic NO!

The fact is that obesity can be a beast. Obesity or being overweight actually is a beast for about 95% of us. This beast continues to be untamed again and again as most of us fail over and over.  But it is NOT our fault.

You know that this beast can be least, that is what you are why is it that you cannot tame it? 

The trick is simply 'knowing how'. Nearly all weight loss plans and programs are incomplete!  They do not teach us the skills that we must know in order to win at losing weight.  'Knowing how' is an elusive trick that most of us never learn.



We are taught that there are two parts and two parts only to succeeding at weight loss. Those two parts, you already know are Diet and Exercise. The sad truth is that most of us never even know that there is a third part of weight loss. I call it the third side of the weight loss success triangle. This third side involves learning some simple weight loss SKILLS' along with a few secrets and tips that only the elite 5% that win at losing weight know about.

Driving a car or even riding a bike can be nearly impossible until we learn how. Until we learn the required SKILLS to do many of the tasks that you and I do in life, without even thinking, until we learn those needed skills, those tasks are difficult, if not, nearly impossible. On the other hand, once we learn the skills and apply them, mastery of said task usually follows.


I am George Pierce, and my website is:

Win At Losing Weight.

If you will allow me, I can help you to win at losing weight. I will gladly teach you the weight loss skills that you have not been taught, and will also share some of the weight loss secrets and tips that I have learned over the past 20+ years on my weight loss journey.

If you are tired of failing, but not so tired that you won't try one more time to win at losing weight, please visit my site for the help that you need.


PS.  It is all FREE!  The only regret that you will have is that you did not learn this sooner.
