5 Fat Loss Tips From The Secret

by Kilo on July 9, 2010

The Secret by Rhonda ByrneThe best way to lose fat has been endlessly debated, with no signs of slowing down. Do you lose fat with kettlebells? Treadmills? Gym Movement? Battling Ropes? The Swiper from Swager Strength?

Not according to Rhonda Byrne, author of The Secret. Below I have listed her suggestions.

1. Don’t think fat thoughts

2. Think thin thoughts

3. Food can’t make you fat

4. Eat whatever you want, but believe that it will make you thin

5. Feel your perfect weight, and the universe will bestow it upon you, even if you only eat Now and Laters and Chick O Sticks.

Well, I guess that’s that. Is anyone else relieved by this? Off to the Twinkie shop!

PS: The greatest review ever of The Secret is right here. It originally appeared on Amazon, but has been removed for its truthtasticity.

Wow – that is deep……..wait you lost me.
I agree that food does not make you fat but the thin thoughts – we are stretching here. Another person not taking responsibility for their choices but this is more amusing because they believe if they believe in being thin it works. Wow – I knew a guy that believed if he prayed to God that God would make him thin. The guy is dead now.

This morning I ate 97 chorizos with frosting on them and lost 19 lbs. In your face Kathi Burger!

Did you’re copy come with a shiv? Or do you you have to think about a shiv?

That’s awesome. I’ve read that review before and thought it was the best review I’ve seen of any book EVER. Skimmed “The Secret” in the library, but just couldn’t bring myself to check it out and read it – is it really that bad?

Boris, I can’t speak objectively. The book is 99% quotes, but the audio production is so absurd that I can’t quit listening to it. It might be the most fun with an audio book. I’d love to hear your take on it.

The easiest way to gain muscle is to watch Arnie films. I swear last time I watched Predator I gained a whole inch on my biceps!

PS. Watching Twins will not have the same effect as Arnies more manly films, in fact Twins can cause you to shrink to Danny DiVito size!!

Even the credits of Predator will make you squat more.

Bryce-boy, I personally think hard work is overrated, but no work at all? Pass.

I attempted to listen to the audiobook on a roadtrip and couldn’t handle Linda’s voice and more so her intonation as she reads what she wrote. It seemed to me that she was trying to sell and convince me of something. Maybe I’ll give another try some day but I imagine I won’t!

Last week I watched the old classic “Pumping Iron”.

Now am I not only 300 lbs of rockhard abs, I’m also the owner of Venice Beach and the Governer of California.

Isn’t this “secret” stuff just wonderful ?

But you gotta be careful – I just watched the incredible hulk and I swear I’m turning into Kermit the frog.

Dreaming big Marc! I like it. You are probably the first kermit-related manifestation to date.
