PEERtrainer, A Diet, Coaching and Nutrition Community, Asks If Long Term, Weight Loss Is Possible

PEERtrainer.com has been following Stephen Covey's advice, being very mindful of the space between stimulus and response, following the publication of an article on the difficulty of weight loss from a widely followed blogger at the New York Times.

 
PRLog - Jan. 10, 2012 - PEERtrainer.com, the Web’s premiere health and weight loss community, has been following Stephen Covey's advice, being very mindful of the space between stimulus and response, following the publication of an article on the difficulty of weight loss from a widely followed blogger at the New York Times, Tara Parker-Pope.

PEER’s quick summary of the situation is that the writer named Tara Parker-Pope managed to conclude that weight loss was futile for most people based on a) a study that showed people failing at long term weight loss on a low nutrient, low calorie diet; and b) her own personal experience where she has failed to lose the 60 pounds she has gained since her high school graduation.

According to Habib Wicks, co-founder of PEERtrainer.com, "One of the reasons that we have reacted so strongly to Tara Parker-Pope is that we have a situation where someone who has admittedly failed at figuring out how to lose weight in a healthy and sustainable way, has somehow managed to widely influence the way people think."

Wicks adds, "Not only are there diet approaches which get people out of the cycle of failure that Parker-Pope is trapped in, there are tens of thousands of people at PEERtrainer who have been through our free and paid programs who have experienced breaking this cycle. We (at PEERtrainer) see that when people (1) incorporate nutrient density as a core part of their long term eating plan, (2) explore the removal of toxic foods to see how they react to things like wheat, eggs, dairy and corn; and (3) take an in-depth account of how they make decisions -- incredible progress can be made. This happens every single day, and the pattern repeats itself with such clockwork regularity that we want to literally scream when someone says that losing weight is just not possible, because they are following the wrong plan."

Wicks concludes, "To compound matters for Parker-Pope, she recently revealed in an interview with Jean Fain that her plan this year to lose weight is to 'be mindful' of what she eats and exercise between 90 minutes and two hours a day. It doesn't take an expert in logic to conclude that the likelihood of her actually exercising this much is very low.  And that her attempts to 'be mindful' have clearly not worked!"
