Tom and Dian get it!

I used to struggle with losing weight and have tried several programs that promised success, but were met with minimal outcomes. Well, I recently discovered Tom and Dian Griesel's Turbocharged program and was shocked when I realized how quickly and easily I could accomplish my weight loss goals and significantly improve my overall health, well being and appearance.

Right from the start, I was able to make lifestyle changes that have made a difference in my overall quality of life. My outcomes turned out way better than anything of could have imagined - in less than six weeks I lost 25 lbs of body fat and 6 inches from my waist, reduced my blood pressure to ideal levels, improved the appearance of my skin and have returned to energy levels that rival my 30's. When you factor in that I have hypothyroidism, it makes my results even more amazing.

After learning their basic guidelines, which are based on our evolutionary diet, I realized that I had been eating as recommended by the traditional food pyramid model which had contributed to my weight and
health challenges." While applying the easy to follow principles proposed by Tom and Dian, I was able to quickly make changes and move closer to optimal health and nutrition.

Their book is easy to follow and packed with information about eating more like our ancestors, and developing slimmer, healthier bodies with outstanding results. I have no hesitation in recommending their book and their program (and I have!) to anyone who wants to improve their health. Turbocharging was the best investment I have made in myself in a long time. Thanks Tom and Dian for making achieving my weight loss goals easy and fun.

I am a 30-year-old "fit" male, but my problem was this: Once I turned 30, I started feeling everything I ate in my stomach, my pants waist felt tighter, and I swear I was developing a muffin top. For the first time in my life my metabolism had slowed down. And I know from studies in the newspaper that abdomen fat is toxic for males. Disgusted and fearful it would get worse, and concerned that I was gaining weight despite being active, I turned to TurboCharged.

The first thing I did was feel great about what I read, although I didn't adhere to it. But my belly didn't go away, and I remembered I read some good stuff in TurboCharged--so I picked it up again and I am happy with the results.

I now consume a lot of water to make sure my hunger is not thirst. I used to have coffee and a bran muffin around breakfast time when I was hungry, but now I consume fruit. I have natural energy and vitality. At 6'2", I've gone from 213 lbs to 205 lbs, or a 4% reduction, of what I am pretty sure was all body fat, in just a few weeks. I watch out for sugar, and make sure the only thing I eat after 7 pm is fruit.

I don't count calories, and I don't spend hours in the gym; I only do recreational activities such as basketball and golf for fun.

TurboCharged educated me as to what small changes I could make to have the maximum chance of becoming slimmer. Before TurboCharged, without even knowing it, I had let myself go, and traditional methods weren't working--either they were too hard to adhere to, or ineffective. I feel like I have control of my body again, having employed what I learned in this book.

It's easy to read and to use. Armed with the dos and don'ts that get results, I recommend it to my friends.

As a reviewer, I get certain genre(s) in cycles. Right now I am in the Health/Weight Loss genre cycle.

In the past 4 months, I've read 4 books on these subjects. One was actually more about mental health but physical health plays a role in that area, so the book reached out in that directions too.

But TurboCharged by siblings Dian Griesel, Ph.D. and Tom Griesel is one I would call a stand out. In the introduction, the first statement is very bold, "The TurboCharged steps as presented in this book will out-perform any other diet or exercise program you may have tried in the past." I like bold statements like that.

Every paragraph provides another piece to the puzzle, without overwhelming you with facts. As explained, all of the information makes perfect sense. The only "trick"? You have to work the steps.

One point discussed focused on water consumption. I've always been a sipper. I carry my glass and plastic straw around all day, sipping. TurboCharged explains why this is not enough to handle how much water my body really needs. It took me a few days to get into the habit of drinking more each time I picked up my glass and after having tried the TurboCharged way for one week; I experienced quite a few changes.

Two other chapters I found to be worthy of a book alone, were #6 Muscle Power in 5...Minutes a Day! and the 100 calorie and under list in chapter #7. I'm thinking a poster of each of these chapters would be great. Lots of information at one glance.

Another great chapter, #8 "See" the Prize. I am a firm believer in visualization and meditation. Here Dian and Tom discuss the importance of relaxing our minds and how doing so positively affects the body and our quest to be healthy.

I think that's the main point here. If we want to be healthy, it takes effort. Start by making the effort to read this book.
