About the Author

DIAN GRIESEL, Ph.D., 50, is a serial entrepreneur and long recognized health spokesperson. Dian has advised biotechnology, pharmaceutical and high technology companies for over fifteen years via her company The Investor Relations Group, an award winning corporate communications firm. Dian lectures and writes on a variety of subjects. She is a lifetime member of the International Association of Counselors and Therapists as well as the National Guild of Hypnotists. She has served on the Board of the New York Chapter of the American Heart Association. Dian has appeared in thousands of media outlets and in the early 1990s was a regular health expert on the Sally Jessy Raphael Show, Gordon Elliot, Jenny Jones, Montel Williams, Rolanda Watts, Good Day New York and 1010 WINS News. She has worked in private practice and taught continuing education for weight loss and stress management at the NY Open Center and the City University of NY. In the 1980s, Dian was co-partner at Spotlite Marketing, a division of Spotlite Entertainment, where she worked on sponsorship deals for Jay Leno, Jerry Seinfeld, and other top tier acts. Today Dian lives in Connecticut, with her husband and their two young children. TOM GRIESEL, 56, is the older brother of Dian and a true Renaissance man. His enthusiasm for process has followed him throughout life. Tom didn't just do triathlons--he trained, customized gear and hand-assembled the bike he rode on. He is passionate about understanding how and why things work the way they do. This curiosity has compelled him to study health, wellness and longevity for over 30 years. His lifetime interest in fitness, health and meditation has resulted in him becoming a Reiki Master as well as learning and regularly practicing Transcendental Meditation for over 20 years. He is one of the very few fitness personalities who can actually demonstrate many impressive physical feats including 80+ push-ups in record time. Prior to this book, Tom worked as a banker, financing pharmaceutical, biotechnology and other high tech companies. In early 2010, he retired to finally live his dream of consulting and writing about wellness, fitness and fat loss. Today, Tom spends his time with his wife of 30+ years, living in Arizona, California and Connecticut.

Once when I was on an overseas tour, the guide looked me in the eye and bluntly claimed, "Americans are FAT." She had a point there because as Tom and Dian Giesel say, "we live in a society where we are quite literally eating ourselves to death." There are a plethora of diet books out there, most of which seem to make their way into library sales for obvious reasons. Most of them simply do not work for the average person, a person who is not committed to changing their lifestyle. Simply reading a book will not make one thin or fit. The Giesels maintain that they will "give you all the information and know-how you will need to lose not weight--which is comprised of water, bones, fat and essential organs and tissues--but excess body fat, the only thing you want to lose." (p. xviii). The enthusiastic introduction, which does read like an informercial, certainly garnered my attention.

TurboCharged is a "holistic process" presented in eight simple steps. The emphasis of TurboCharging is to lose body fat by starving "our bodies of those foods that trigger insulin release." (p. 7) If you are certain you want to explore the contents of this book and are going to purchase it, feel free to bypass this review. If you'd like to know what is actually in the book, keep on reading. I'll try to give a brief summation of the steps, without going into excessive detail ... that is the job the Griesels will do for you.

Step #1: "Forget What You've Been Told About Dieting." This step discusses common myths that prevent us from losing weight, the things most diets have in common, how you can eat nourishing foods without going into starvation mode, and how you will find "the perfect way to eat for the rest of your life.

Step #2: `Measure REAL Success.

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.

Format: Paperback
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.
