You’ve chased every Shiny Diet out there only to lose weight and then gain it all back. You’re ready to ditch diets once and for all
- Diets and restrictions only make you overeat.
- Willpower and deprivation eventually fail you.
- Counting calories is complicated and ineffective.
- Food and emotionally eating is your go-to.
- You can no longer discern true hunger.
- You can’t control yourself, so you try to control the food.
It doesn’t have to be complicated, it’s about changing when you eat and using discernment not deprivation.
My name is Chantel Ray, and I run a multi-million-dollar real estate company. I’m not a medical doctor or a nutritionist; I actually have my degree in mathematics. I'm a 44-year old mother to a 17-year-old daughter and an eight-year-old son. I have a loving husband who owns a competing real estate company and has always called me beautiful, even at my highest weight. “Yeah, that’s great Chantel, but what makes you qualified to write a book or develop a weight loss course?"
I may not be a doctor, nutritionist, fitness trainer or anything like that, but I am someone who, like you, has spent most of her life obsessing over diets and struggling with her weight. If I could gather up all the pounds I've gained, lost, and gained again, I could build a whole new person.
I have tried almost every weight loss strategy that’s out there. I’ve read almost every weight loss book. The topic of weight loss is something I have always been passionate about even when success escaped me. I'm the kind of person to walk right up to a thin stranger in the gym and ask, "What did you have for breakfast?" You can see how direct I am!
A lot of this is a combination of information I wrung out of my thin friends, personal research, and the "secret sauce" that finally cracked the code for me and my weight loss.

My name is Liz and I have an incredible testimony that involves this book! At the end of 2015 I incurred an injury at work that would require surgery to rectify the situation. After seeing a specialist I was scheduled to have my surgery. Well, it was a success, but as most women and men at age 50 know when you mess with the body, other things begin to need attention. I ordered the book and in one year (actually less) I’m thrilled to be down 70 pounds! My feet say thank you and my frame of 5’3 is back to its normal self. I’m a police officer, so being in shape is a must! I testify everywhere I go and have recommended this book to at least 30 people.
I was skeptical when I heard about Intermittent Fasting but decided to give it a try. I have combined Intermittent Fasting with a lower carb lifestyle, and five months later, have lost over 40 lbs and have gained a new perspective on life! This book has changed the way I think about food.
