Trapped in a vicious cycle of overeating, low self-esteem and out-of-control weight gain, Americans endure confusing advice from a diet industry pushing both low-fat and low-carb products, and yo-yo dieting that’s destined to fail. Obesity, diabetes and related diseases rob us of health and vitality and threaten a healthcare disaster for our kids.
People seeking simple, easy-to-understand weight-loss solutions in a fast-paced world have found a friend and advocate in Doug Varrieur and his book series, FAT TO SKINNY Fast and Easy!
Doug is not a doctor or nutritionist. He’s an inquisitive entrepreneur with a big heart for people who are overweight just as he was for many years. He developed Fat To Skinny on his own, independent of those other low-carb diets, out of his drive to win his own battle with diabetes.
Doug’s regular guy appeal allows him to present information in a simple, easy-to-understand way that makes sense to everyone struggling to lose pounds. In a world of confusing and often conflicting diet messages, he believes simplicity is the key to his ability to reach people and save lives.
“We’ve beaten to death this diet thing for years and years and years, and it isn’t getting better, it’s getting worse,” he says. “We have the highest obesity rates that we’ve ever had. The generation of children that are upcoming right now are expected to live a shorter life span than their parents for the first time in history.”
No one can watch Doug’s visual demonstration about the tons of sugar hidden in our foods, including supposedly “healthy” ones, and be unmoved. Pouring cups of sugar and stacking 5-pound bags on a scale, he graphically shows the 150 pounds that each of us consumes on average every year.
“People see that and they say ‘I can’t believe I’m eating that much sugar.'” Doug says. “This is about how to eliminate the one thing out of their diet that’s making them fat. All of a sudden, it makes sense for the first time in their lives.”
The proof that Fat To Skinny works is in the fat loss results of people across America who have heeded the advice of this successful businessman, former fat guy and “sugar whistleblower.”
Shawn Goble of Safety Harbor, Florida, lost 100 pounds in less than six months. Andrea Patenaude of Litchfield New Hampshire, lost 90 pounds in the last ten months and continues to drop weight. And there is Doug, who lost 100 pounds and has kept it off for seven years with the weight loss program he pioneered. In the process he reversed his type 2 diabetes and was able to return to the active lifestyle he loves.
A devoted husband, father and family man, Doug has made it his “life’s divine mission” to help ordinary folks lose weight, reverse insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes and get skinny and healthy so they can live longer, happier lives.
“In my lifetime, I can only pray to make a small dent in this gigantic, worldwide epidemic of obesity and type 2 diabetes,” he says. “There are people out there who are sick, dying — people who are overweight and don’t know what to do. The cool part about Fat To Skinny is that the book simply is the truth.”
