I'm Marine Gunnery Sergeant Kyle Cooper, and I’m about to share a bizarre story with you.
It’s about how a disastrous mission in the mountains of Afghanistan led to an amazing discovery that would save the life of Sharon Monroe, a 43-year-old out-of-shape accountant and mother of two who nearly dropped dead from a heart attack.
What I found in the unforgiving desert would empower Sharon to lose over 40 pounds and save her life.
I’m going to tell you about the lies that create roadblocks to weight loss.
One big lie is that salty foods are a hindrance to losing weight. It sounds crazy, but a lack of salt lowers the pH level in your stomach, so you can’t burn fat. It also leads to digestive problems, making you feel bloated and gassy.
Another lie is that all vegetables are good for you. Some veggies create a serious thyroid imbalance that builds fat in your gut, no matter how much you work out.
Studies have shown that excessive cardio speeds up the aging process, is ineffective at burning fat, and can cause serious heart conditions like arterial plaque buildup, oxidative stress, and scar tissue on the heart, leading to deadly heart attacks.
It goes against everything we’ve been taught.
What about the scientifically proven fact that fat-free, sugar-free, gluten-free and low-carb diets make you fatter because of two body-fattening amino acids that are hiding in many foods you’ve been led to believe are healthy?
They both deliver deadly trans-fats right into your bloodstream, destroying the body's metabolic system and bringing the production of thyroid hormones to a grinding halt – directly resulting in increased fat storage, specifically around your stomach and thighs.
And according to WebMD, people who overdo exercise have shorter life spans and put themselves at greater risk for heart attack. The early symptoms of heart attack are shortness of breath and chest pains, but exercise over-achievers think it’s because they’ve had a good workout.
