- Let’s see, 47,000 hours on the exercise bike, check.
- Went to bed hungry for 288 of the last 289 days, check.

Once you’ve connected with one of these fitness pros, you begin to understand why what you’ve been doing isn’t working.
Things like: You can’t just watch the exercise video while having your afternoon snack of cheese puffs and Snickerdoodles, going a full mile on your exercise bike in just under 4 hours because you had to stop three times for an ice cream break, and getting up at midnight to finish off the leftover lasagna because you were so hungry when you went to bed, will really dive bomb your efforts no matter how sincere you may be.
