The Holy Grail of Weight Loss

Amazing New Weight Loss System!
Breakthrough Fat Pill will burn calories while you Sleep!

Sound familiar?

It’s January so the gym will be packed with a bunch of lazy hopefuls that will be gone by mid-February. I can’t find parking, dumbbells are scattered all over the place, machines have lines and these lazy bastards think they own the joint. That is why I will concentrate in my home gym and the school field near my house performing HIIT, High Intense Interval Training (as long as it stays warm, I can sprint outside). For the 2% of gym-goers that actually stay at their New Year’s Resolution – good for you!

For the other 98%, continue to support the diet fads and magic weight loss pills!

More so than the stock market, the weight loss industry preys on individual’s emotions and promises magic systems, formulas and pills that will evaporate the fat off you ass! Excuse the language but I am so tired of watching bull-shit fat loss commercials all day today (New Year’s Resolution Day – not a coincidence), especially the NutriSystem Nourish commercial. If I stay up long enough tonight, these fat loss commercials will quickly turn into get-rich quick commercials with many promising stock market riches with red and green arrows. It’s such a joke but the world is full of so many suckers they continue to sell this crap. Judging by the number of NutirSystem (NTRI) commercials on television, the company must be swimming in the dough. The stock has been listed on the MSW Index in the past and the company many be one step higher than it’s competitors but I still consider it bogus.


Is the world really filled with suckers or just lazy sheep that can’t put in the required work and dedication to reach their goals?

I trade, study, research and “try” to stay fit. I am a lifetime member at Bally’s and I recently purchased my own home dumbbell gym. I prefer free-weights (dumbbells) over machine weights due to the natural range of movements and muscle building advantages. Heavy weights aren’t required to maintain a healthy body but you and I do need to take the time to exercise and eat smart. The same way successful traders study and employ their systems, people must be accountable for their diet and exercise programs. We don’t need to go overboard and plan a two hour workout six days a week but we do need to be active at least three times per week and watch how much we eat.


Notice how I said “HOW MUCH WE EAT” not “what we eat”. Although “what we eat” is critical to success; the most important aspect of losing or maintaining weight is how many calories we intake and eventually burn. Atop my favorite foods list is a bacon cheese burger from most local diners (10oz beef) and French fries and I eat this at least once per month if not more. Outside of a good old American burger, I love Italian food and grew up in my dad’s restaurant eating penne vodka, chicken marsala, lasagna, calamari, etc…

Do I gain weight? Not usually because I watch what I eat and HOW MUCH I eat at every meal which allows me to indulge now and then.

We don’t need magic pills or systems to lose weight. Lazy people pay for pills that won’t do a damn thing as long as they continue to pound 5,000 calories down their throat every day. You must learn to eat several small meals throughout the day while keeping the calorie intake low to maintain weight levels. By doing this, you will not gain weight. The formula is so simple yet 95% of people can’t comprehend or follow the plan so they get fat. If you want to lose weight; follow the plan and exercise. I exercise because it makes me feel better and allows me to indulge more frequently than most without adding the flab!

Calories! This is the only formula you need to know in order to maintain, lose or gain weight. The holy grail of weight loss is CALORIES – not magic pills and formulas!

If you are too lazy to understand the holy grail of weight loss, then travel on over to these sites and let me know how you do:

The Atkins Diet Plan
The way in which the Atkins diet works is through changing the body’s metabolism. The body burns fats and carbohydrates in order to provide the energy to function normally. Carbohydrates are turned into glucose and are used before fats in our bodies. According to Atkins, if we reduce the amount of carbohydrate intake, our body will burn our fat as fuel, cause weight loss. Through this burning of fat, we also affect our body’s insulin production which, according to Atkins, will prevent more fat from being formed.

Xenical is a weight loss medication based on Orlistat, which acts as a lipase inhibitor by letting part of the fat consumed pass through the intestine without being absorbed. Xenical has proven to be effective and especially suitable for patients suffering from diabetes, high blood pressure or heart disease, as it is not affecting the patients metabolic rate.

Some of the benefits of the cortisol weight loss pill are many powerful antioxidants. Such as catechin polyphenols, these compounds work with other chemicals to increase levels of fat oxidation. The cortisol weight loss pill can help to stop the body from accumulating fat as well. The cortisol weight loss pills will raise your metabolic rates safely. As you can see the cortisol weight loss pills can be used alone or as a tool in a weight loss program.

You get the point so let’s see if you can follow a simple concept, the holy grail of weight loss and weight gain: calories!

I am 5’-8”, 175lbs. I am considered overweight according to the government but the majority of my body is muscle, not fat! Remember, it’s not how much you weigh; it’s how good you feel and look! Most athletes are considered overweight if you just look at the raw body numbers but they are the most fit individuals on the planet because their bodies consist of muscle, not fat.

Have a Great New Year and drop the Bogus New Year’s Resolution!


  1. I agree with you but I don’t think the argument can render this stock or the business as a bogus or bad investment. NTRI is not the holly grail and won’t make you lose weight, their customers are wasting their money. That’s true and I could say the exact same thing about casino stocks such as LVS, they are not the holly grail to getting rich and most of their customers waste their money, but casinos are not going to go out of business and LVS was a good investment.

  2. NTRI was just an example of a public company selling more than a simple calorie plan. The point of the post was geared towards controlling weight. Calories – the Holy Grail – it’s that simple. This wasn’t a stock post although I somehow integrated a stock chart into the post!

    BTW, LVS was one of my best plays of 2006 but what does that have to do with weight loss?

  3. I thought you were talking about the weight loss industry with regards to stocks. If this was not site about stocks I probably wouldn’t have thought that. Anyway, the diet industry and the gambling industry are both selling the same product, false hope.

  4. Anton,
    I am sure I made it confusing with the stock chart in the post. I placed the blog on the web address so I could talk about other things in life outside of stocks.

    My main focus is still stocks but I will talk about other things from time to time.

    Sorry for the confusion.


  6. Hi. There are some very good weight loss articles at They could be very useful, so if you have any spare time i recommend that you read them. Besides, Proactol will be soon launched, and we know that proactol is 1st clinically proven fat binder.

  7. I agree on ‘what to eat and how much to eat’.
