Why Dieting Is A Lot Like a Financial Crisis

Learn the parallels between dieting and the biggest financial

Now, let me be clear right off the bat…if you think I'm going to make a joke here about how your Freddie Mac and Cheese ends up on your Fannie Mae, you're wrong…I would never do such a thing.

What I AM going to do is draw some parallels about how the financial mess the United States is in can actually help you understand how dieting affects your body, and in turn, can help you get better results in your fat-loss efforts and, of course, make you millions of dollars richer in the process.

I'm going to drift around in between finance and nutrition here - I know, they're two almost identical subjects but, try to bear with me.

And keep in mind when you read this, I'm no financial expert. If something isn't 100% right, the SEC isn't interested in small fish like me so I wouldn't bother mentioning this article to them...

1 - The Boom Years

Your body is designed to store fat. Its how we've survived as a species over the millennia. When famine hit, it was always the individuals who could best store and use fat who survived. Evolution wasn't concerned about the potential for muffin-top when it loaded our bodies with easy-to-fill fat cells.

So when times were good (like in the U.S. housing market a few years back), those fat cells were getting filled up like crazy! Everybody was seeing their house values (i.e. waistlines) expand.

Now, greed operates not only in the financial markets but at the buffet table as well. The less regulation there is, i.e. portion and food quality control, the more things start to get unbalanced and the more potential there is for gluttony.

Some people were buying houses they really couldn't afford which is a parallel to some people eating the crappy food (i.e. pretty much anything that comes directly to you through a window). It compromises your health in the long run.

Heck, you can think of eating at McDonald's sorta like getting an adjustable rate loan…you're fine for the first little while but suddenly BAM. Your rate adjusts and it's time to bust out the fat pants.

But hey, while you're still in those first few years of your Adjustable Rate Mortgage, life is good. You may not look like you're gaining a lot of fat (it's all settling into those spaces between your internal organs) or setting up your financial markets for a crash until the moment of truth hits.

Then the balloon payment comes due, your mortgage doubles and you start blowing out the seams on your fat pants.

The internal workings of your system have been so corrupted by deregulation (and coagulation) that your markets can barely function. Your blood pressure is going up faster than a CEO's retirement bonus because your body is carrying too much debt around your waistline.

2 - The Crash

So it's time to diet. And you want to lose that fat FAST. So you immediately drop your calories to near starvation level. Of course, in the stock market, a strict diet looks a lot like a crash. Your body views it the same way.

Panic sets in. Just as brokers start selling off stock, your body starts getting rid of things it doesn't want to carry around.

And, of course, the greater the panic, the stupider the brokers (and your body) get. When you crash diet, your body tends to burn MUSCLE more than fat. Just like a broker selling off the good stocks that can help him recover from a crash.

It's the FAT you want to sell off, not the muscle.

But a big crash [diet], which was set up by the previous gluttony [the result of excess deregulation, akin to asking a 4 year old to guard the birthday cake], you're now attempting to accomplish very quickly what should normally happen over a longer period of time.

If you were to experience a slow economic downturn, your ability to get rid of the fat is much better, allowing you to streamline your portfolio smartly rather than just trying to get rid of everything all at once. You cut your calories, increase your activity and gradually lose the fat.

3 - Market Instability

If you've got a retirement savings plan and you've looked at it recently, you've probably seen a graph that does up and down just like the numbers on the scale of a yo-yo dieter.

The crash is followed by a binge of people buying cheap stocks (because the price is so low and because that Kentucky-fried birthday cake just looks so good), followed by another crash, followed by another binge. And so on.

This constant cycle of crashing and rebounding does nothing to stabilize the economy. It only makes you want to eat more and makes you fatter.

4-The Great Depression

Now you're really feeling bad about yourself. You've gained back all the weight you lost when you crash dieted only you lost muscle and gained back fat.

You're in the middle of a great depression. What's it going to take to snap out of it?

5 - The Two Magic Words

I'm talking BAIL OUT, right! Government to the rescue, right! WRONG.

Look at how well the bail-out worked. The stock market keeps tanking and keeps yo-yo dieting. Until the government takes high fructose corn syrup out of the food-lobby pyramid, you can be pretty sure the government isn't going to solve your weight problems.

Now come the REAL two little magic words that will make everything okay…Personal Responsibility.

I am VERY sure there are predatory lenders out there who convinced people that they could afford homes that they really couldn't just as I'm sure there are food manufacturers trying to convince you that Lucky Charms are healthy because they suddenly contain calcium…

When you get down to it, nobody is holding a gun to your head to eat that last chunk of Texas Toast with extra cheese, butter and frosting. Just because something is available doesn't mean you HAVE to insert it into your face (or sign the paperwork that says you're fine with 5% APR jump on your mortgage when it resets).

When you put Personal Responsibility into practice, you take CONTROL over your finances and your nutrition. You realize that the world does not owe you a lean body…it's something you have to work for and make an effort for, just like it takes work and effort to pay your mortgage every month.

If it sounds too good to be true…well, you know how the rest of THAT goes…

In this case, it's a lesson Wall Street should learn from Sesame Street. Like Cookie Monster says, cookies are a "sometimes" food - meaning if you're greedy all the time, it's going to eventually catch up to you and you'll have to pay for it (unless you're AIG, apparently, in which case you've got a license to keep on partying without any hint of accountability - I guess the parallel to that would be liposuction!).

So How Do I Take the Next Step?

Glad You Ask!

It can be real hard to stay focused when you need to lose weight and get fit. It can often feel like a punishment rather than an enjoyable affair, especially when you get to the gym and feel a little out of sorts. This is where the Syfit 28 day rapid fat loss program takes your fat loss goal from a 5 minute dream into an achievable goal.

Lose Up To 16 lbs Or More In 28 days And Continue To Burn Fat Off Month After Month

Every so often a fitness and motivation program comes along worthy of all the hype…this is it…R U READY for my 28 day rapid fat loss taster program?

This is a 28 day training and nutrition (manipulation) program that is relatively intense. Your going to work hard for 28 days BUT your results are going to come fast and will be significant when you follow the program.

The clients who have followed my program have burned off up to 10% of their unwanted weight in body fat in the 28 days and a couple of dress and pants sizes, then continued to burn fat month on month with the SYFIT 8 and 16 week programs.

This online program is simple in its brilliance. You’ll workout 4 times per week for 28 days and eat the foods that I outline in your program. There are 7 daily meal plans to choose from.

You will experience a little muscle soreness but nothing too bad, just enough for you to know that you just had an awesome workout.

The eating plan that I give you will not be a starvation diet as I don’t believe in those kinds of nutrition plans. Its actually a decent amount of calories manipulated in a crafty way to help your body to maximize it’s fat burning while maintaining your muscle during the 28 days.

This program can be done in the gym or even at home with little or no equipment.


Hi my name is Amber and I had the opportunity to sample this 28 day rapid fat loss program during the summer of 2010. When I started this program I weighed 160lbs After following the workout, cardio and nutrition plan to the book, I was please to find out that I had loss 14lbs and 4% bodyfat in the 28 days.

Some of you may feel that this wasn’t an earth shattering amount of weight to lose in 28 days. Coach Symon gave me an honest approach of how my weight drop would go, he put it like this.

Day 1 - 10..This first 7-10 days is where I would drop the most weight. 75% to 85% of that weight would be unwanted water weight, which my body would expel first. The Other weight loss in that first period would be fat.

Day 11 - 28...from here on in my weight drop will either come from one of two areas, FAT or MUSCLE. He went on to explain that the last place my body wants to rid weight from is my fat store, that’s like my body‘s shied against starvation.

Coach Symon told me that he wanted me to lose no more than 1 - 2.5 lbs (with a maximum of 3 lbs) per week, this would ensure that the body was tapping into only the fat stores and not my muscle, after all, your body needs muscle to burn fat effectively . Any more than 2.5 - 3 lbs loss in 7 days after the first 7-10 period would mean my body would be dipping into my muscle stores.

I found it easy to stay in contact with Coach Symon, if I had a problem or just a question he would always get back to me in good time, which was a really important part for me.

My Rapid fat loss went like this

Day 1-7...dropped 7lbs

Day 8-14...dropped 3lb

Day 15- 21...dropped 2lb

Day 22-28...dropped 2lb

At first I didn’t think that I would get on with an online coach , simply because he or she wouldn’t be there pushing me and kicking my butt when I felt like taking a short cut. This is where I valued the daily motivational quotes that coach Symon sent, he got me into the habit of reading throughout the day which helped me to stay motivated and on track.

I won’t lie and say that it was dog easy, because if it were you wouldn’t be reading my testimonial right now. What I will say is that I had some great workouts, they felt more like self achievements rather than a chore.

The great thing was Coach Sy was always full of encouragement which help to motivate me. When I completed the 28 day program Symon set me up with an 8 week program where I have continued to drop fat at a steady and safe rate of 1- 2lbs pr week.
