How to Lose Weight: A 7-Step Guide

Would you like to lose weight and keep it off? Have you tried and tried but nothing seems to work? Don’t blame yourself. It is not your fault. Each year, a new diet is introduced just for dieters to learn that it was just another fad that failed millions of people. Many people claim to be experts on the subject, but how many of them actually know why you are having difficulties losing weight. For the most part, your time is being wasted by these so-called weight-loss experts. At the Centre for Diabetes and Obesity Wellness, it is part of our mission to give you the facts and let you decide what you want to do with them. If you follow our steps, you can lose 5 pounds a month and keep them off permanently.

My success in losing weight came from this diet plan. By following it, I went from 219 pounds down to my optimal weight of 185 pounds. So how did I gain the weight? I ate cookies and chocolate bars throughout the day. I was known for being a sugarholic. Often, late at night, I would go to the drive-through at a fast-food place to grab some snacks. It was not long before my weight began to climb up.

The seven steps given below helped me not just to lose weight, but also helped me reverse my type 2 diabetes. If I did it, so can you. If you are ready, continue reading.


  1. Take sugar out of your diet: Refined sugar is far more addictive than any form of drug out there. Once consumed, your brain begins to crave it and demand it. Excess sugar in the body turns into fat. We need sugar for energy, but not in excess qualities. Most manufactured food products today contain sugar. But did you know that even vegetables have sugar in them? This means you may be eating too much sweet stuff already. Just by taking refined sugar out of your diet, you increase your chances of losing weight. If you find it difficult not to eat sugar, start by taking baby steps to wean yourself off.
  2. Eat six small meals a day: It is so very important to understand the functionality of your body. Your body will give back what you put in it. First and foremost, be careful about fasting to lose weight. Whenever you fast, your body automatically thinks you are staving and begins to store fat for its survival. What you want to do is eat five to six small meals a day. Small meals are easy for your body to digest and then there is no excess food to be stored and later converted into sugar, which converts into fat. All of your meals should have some carbohydrates and fat. The fat helps you digest the food and the carbs are required for energy production. The carbs should come from a healthy grain and not white rice or white flour food products.
  3. Cook your own food: When I started my diet, I began cooking my own food. Remember, I had stopped taking care of myself properly by eating burgers late at night, cookies, and chocolate in excess. To gain control over what I put inside my body, I began to cook and trained as a chef. I created dishes that forced my body to burn off sugar. You can go to our order page and try out the diet plan and see how it works for you.
  4. Reach the point of ketosis: Lately, the keto diet has become quite the trend. But what is keto or ketosis? This can be achieved simply by eating in such a way that your body burns off the sugar that has contributed to your weight gain. Once all that sugar is burned off, your body has no option but to burn fat for energy. At that point, you have reached the point of ketosis. Your weight will begin to drop as your body sheds off the fat. IF YOU ARE READY, GO HERE TO GET STARTED.
  5. Exercise four times a week: Exercise is very important even if you are already healthy. The benefits are great. Exercise promotes a good mood, a relaxed mind, fights off stress, detoxes your body as you sweat, and more importantly, it helps speed up weight loss. It is important to develop the discipline to exercise about four times a week. Exercise makes your heart stronger. It also speeds up your metabolism so that you continue to burn off fat while you sleep.
  6. Learn about obesogens: Most people struggling with weight loss may not be aware that their challenge is not with the weight coming back on after they lose weight. Trust me on this one. You are not the only one who has this misconception. There are all sorts oof theories out there about the difficulties with losing weight, including the claim that you need to learn how to weight loss in your core. All sorts of diet and weight-loss books are written, but unfortunately, more people are gaining weight and not able to keep it off. One problem can be obesogens. What are obesogens? Simply, they are chemicals found in food that make you gain weight. Obesogens that affect weight gain in humans are especially found in fatty foods from animals, such as milk, meat, and fish. Dr. Paula Baillie-Hamilton, a professor from Oxford University, explained in her book that after the birth of her child, she could not return to her normal weight. She tried and tried without success.  She began to do research and discovered that the red meat she was eating had chemicals in it which came from the feed given to cows. When people consume beef from cows fed with certain feeds, the obesogens contained in the meat cause weight gain. As much as you try to lose weight, the weight keeps coming back when you are consuming these chemicals. So, if you are having problems losing weight, it is not your fault; the problem may be external.
  7. Keeping weight off: In Step 6, we discussed obesogens. There are a number of ways you can keep weight off. If the problem is contained in some of the foods you are eating, consider not eating them, particularly meat. But for most people, once you have lost weight, all you have to do is exercise and eat small meals. If you want more muscle, eat less carbohydrates and more protein and vegetables. For some people, if eating vegetables is not your thing, the good news is that you can now find vegetables in powder form. All you have to do mix the powder in water and drink it.

Tips for losing weight

  • Here are some weight-loss tips to remember that will save you from frustration and giving up. The process of losing weight is not as complex as many make it seem. The more calories you eat, the more weight you gain. The fewer calories you eat—coupled with exercise—the more weight you lose.
  • If you include exercise in your weight-loss plan, you need carbohydrates in your diet.
  • Don’t give up if you don’t see fast results. The most weight you can lose in a month is 10 pounds.
  • Stay away from weight-loss fads that claim that you can lose weight fast.
  • Don’t starve yourself. If you do, your body will go into survival mode and begin to store fat.
  • Be aware of what and when you eat. Often, when people are hungry, they reach for chips and other high-calorie snacks.
  • Make sure to reach ketosis. That is what causes your body to begin to shed off the pounds and reveal lean muscle. For more on ketosis, please read this article: Keto Diet for Diabetics
  • Do not consider taking weight-loss pills without consulting with your doctor.
  • It is important to remember that some people are naturally big-boned, yet very healthy. If that is you, then you are just fine. This article is to help people who have gained excess weight and want to lose it. So know the difference between healthy and unhealthy weight.
  • Don’t stress over things. Two things could happen as a result: you could either gain weight or lose it. For example, when I am stressed, I simply don’t eat and so I don’t gain weight. For others, when they are stressed, they turn to food to comfort themselves. If you are among the latter type, be aware of stress and find something to do to prevent you from overeating high- calorie foods.
  • When my weight went from 185 lbs. to 219 lbs., I was not eating properly. I was eating cookies, candies, and chocolate bars. At night time—about 11 PM— I would drive to the drive-thru for a late-night burger, fries and a cola drink to wash it all down. Within three months, I saw my weight go up.
  • Can you lose weight on any diet? The answer is yes. Just don’t eat foods like pizza in excess like I did, or burgers and fries late at night.
  • Eating after 8 PM is not a good idea. After 8 PM, your digestive enzyme production drops. This is because your body is not designed to be eating late. By morning, your digestive enzyme production is back up to a normal level because your body expects food at that time. Eating late disrupts the natural process.
  • Please don’t take fat and carbohydrates out of your diet. You need them. Eat healthy fat and carbs. For example:
  • Instead of margarine, use butter
  • Instead of peanut oil, use olive oil
  • Instead of four pieces of bacons, eat only two
  • Instead of lean fish, eat fatty fish
  • Instead of refined sugar, eat raw sugar.
  • Eat real food. When you buy food items, read the label. If you do not understand the terminology used to describe the product, ask an employee of the super market.

Pre-diabetes is a condition with which blood sugar levels are higher than normal, but are not yet high enough for a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes to be given. Although not everyone with pre-diabetes will develop type 2 diabetes, many will.

In many nations, pre-diabetes has reached epidemic proportions. For example, a UCLA study shows that in California alone, 13 million adults are pre-diabetic and 2.5 million, (or 9% of the population,) is type 2 diabetic. The two groups represent 15.5 million people (55 percent of the state’s population). Apply this equation to the nations where cases are rampant, and the figure worldwide becomes staggering. The same UCLA study found that 30% of pre-diabetics will acquire full-blown type 2 diabetes within five years of diagnosis and the remaining 70% will develop it in their lifetime; which means, if you are pre-diabetic and follow the same trajectory that led you to become pre-diabetic, at some point, you will become diabetic.

Pre-diabetes is taken for granted, so much so that the term is not even recognized by the World Health Organization. However, the term is slowly gaining ground amongst healthcare professionals.

Pre-diabetes is a progressive condition. When pre-diabetes is not dealt with in its early stages, the condition often progresses into type 2 diabetes. Another name for pre-diabetes is borderline diabetes. Type 2 diabetes can also progress and develop into type 1 diabetes.

 The signs and symptoms of pre-diabetes

Most people who have pre-diabetes don’t know that they have it. This is mainly due to the fact that pre-diabetes is widely overlooked and not recognized. One sign to look for that indicates the condition is a strong craving for sweets, particularly when one is in their forties. For example, when I was in my forties, I became a “sugarholic”. I was warned that there was a possibility that I was becoming diabetic, but I ignored the signs, and my craving for sweets became stronger and stronger. Another indication of pre-diabetes is when the sugar level inside one’s body is high, but one has not yet been diagnosed with diabetes. If you have not been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes but you crave sugar, it is a good time to visit your doctor and let him know that you have been craving and eating a lot of sugar. A simple blood test can lead to the prevention of the progression from pre-diabetes to type 2 diabetes. In some cases, with pre-diabetes, one may even have signs and symptoms similar to those associated with type 2 diabetes. It is very important to be aware of these signs and symptoms.

Do you suspect that you might be pre-diabetic but are not sure? According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), most people who are pre-diabetic don’t know they are.

How do you become pre-diabetic?

First and foremost, don’t panic if you learn that you are pre-diabetic. But it is important to understand how you arrived at where you are.  When you eat refined sugar, some of that sugar, enters your blood stream.  Your pancreas still works and produces enough insulin (a hormone that transports the sugar to your cells to be used for energy). But when there is too much sugar in your bold stream and the insulin is not able to assimilate all the sugar, a build-up develops. Your cells will still absorb sugar, but they cannot absorb all of it because there is just too much. The extra sugar remains in your blood stream.  At that point you are pre-diabetic meaning your A1C is above 5. The good news is that, at this point, you do have the chance to reverse your condition within three to four weeks.

What are the risk factors related to pre-diabetes?

There are at least two main risk factors related to diabetes:

  1. If someone in your family line is type 2 diabetic, there is a possibility you could become pre-diabetic. This means, there is a hereditary disposition.
  2. The second most common risk factor is age in the range from 25 to 45 years. Forty-five is the age average age when most adults are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.

There are no set symptoms that alert you that you are on your way to becoming pre-diabetic. However, like mentioned earlier, craving sugar is a good warning sign. Also, if you experience frequent urination followed by rapid weight loss, it is recommended you see your doctor. One of the first questions he/she will ask is if you are craving sweets. If your doctor suspects you have become diabetic, he/she will ask you do a blood glucose test.

Rather than wait to see signs of full-blown type 2 diabetes, see your doctor. A blood test will determine if you pre-diabetic, full blown diabetic, or neither. It is not uncommon for people to try to self-diagnose, but let your doctor determine your condition. This is important because the treatment of diabetes is a business you should not get caught in unwittingly and with insufficient knowledge. Often, articles written for major diabetes websites are in favour of companies that sponsor these websites. In those articles, the results of blood glucose tests can be widely exaggerated.

Here are two examples:

  1. I was diagnosed in 2009. While I was researching what to do to heal, I came across an article from the Canadian Diabetes Association, which is now known as Diabetes Canada. In the article, it was clearly stated that a blood glucose level of 7 was normal. A few years later, when I went to the same website, the figure had been changed. It said the blood glucose level should not be more than 5 millimoles. This means that now, people with a blood glucose level between 5 and 7 millimoles are advised to take medication. This has increased the customer base and sales for the biggest manufacturers of diabetes drugs.
  2. Very interestingly, the Canadian Diabetes Association had begun to receive sponsorship from diabetes drug manufacturers. This was followed by a name change from the Canadian Diabetes Association to Diabetes Canada. Shortly after the name change, Diabetes Canada put out a TV ad in which they said that if you are 35 years or older, you should take a blood glucose test. Why are healthy, young men and women being asked to take a blood glucose test? Should such ads even be made? Shouldn’t an ad, if the issue is important, point out signs and symptoms and advice people that if they see any of the signs, they should do a blood test? The only explanation is that the ad was produced to manipulate healthy people to take a blood glucose test, and if they register levels between 5 and 7 millimoles, they too should become dependent on pharmaceutical drugs. This means that, for drug companies, it is not enough that only those who are diabetic should be taking prescription drugs.

How can I reverse my pre-diabetes?

Your pre-diabetes can be reversed by following a few simple steps, researches shows. If you are diagnosed pre-diabetic, don’t panic. There is hope. Based on research, making lifestyle changes can bring about a reversal of the condition within 3 weeks. Study upon study has shown that losing a few pounds through diet and exercise can reverse the condition and prevent it from progressing to full blown type 2 diabetes. This is confirmed by Mark Schutta, MD, medical director at the Penn Rodebaugh Diabetes Center in Philadelphia. In his own words: “I tell my patients, ‘You can treat this into remission. It’s attainable for most people with pre-diabetes.’” For help reversing your prediabetes, we invite you to try our diabetes cure program.

Remission is a safe term used in place of reversal or cure. The term remission is used because it signifies that, sometimes, people don’t stick to the program that reversed their pre-diabetes or type 2 diabetes. They go back to the same lifestyle that brought on the condition.

Incorporating healthy eating and exercise into your lifestyle is very important. Exercise, in particular, makes use of glucose, which is the fuel that your body needs. Exercise also makes your cells sensitive to insulin. In other words, as you exercise, your muscles become more sensitive to insulin. That process is the key to reversing your pre-diabetes permanently.

Doing the right exercise does more than meets the eye; it helps keep you youthful; it helps reduce your chances of becoming a full-blown type diabetic; it helps reduce your chances of heart disease and stroke; and lastly, it eliminates 90% of deceases. The best way to start a program of exercise is to consult with your doctor. Importantly, if you are not used to exercising, always start slowly and work your way up. It will not be long before you find yourself growing in strength and endurance.

What happens after I cure my pre-diabetes?

The word “cure” is a medical term. Doctors don’t use it in some cases, particularly in respect to pre-diabetes, and there is a good reason for that. “Cured” means the condition is gone permanently. However, for that to happen, you must adopt a new lifestyle to regain good health and maintain that lifestyle. If you can sustain that lifestyle and the pre-diabetes does not return over a two-year period, it means the conditioned has been cured. Some doctors in the UK are beginning to use the word “cure” in relation to pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes. What that means is that some doctors use the word while others simply don’t. Some doctors don’t use it because people can be habitual in going back to the lifestyle that made them sick in the first place. Further, sugar is so addictive that some people simply go back to eating it in excess. It is a drug to the brain, and once the brain gets use to it, the sugar will damage it. The secret to weaning yourself off refined sugar is to go about it slowly. When your blood sugar levels return to normal, stay focused on the changes that got you where you are and stick to the program.

Who should test for pre-diabetes and when?

In the past, pre-diabetes was said to afflict obese people and ethnic minorities, including African Americans, Latinos, American Indians, and Asian Americans. But what is missing in this picture is the science. It is now a known fact that diabetes can afflict anyone and is caused by one’s lifestyle—eating certain foods in excess, especially those containing refined sugar. In countries such as Norway, where there are primarily Caucasians, they once struggled with an increase in pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes. Scientists traced the increase to the amount of consumption of refined sugar and fast foods. This indicates that pre-diabetes does not predominantly afflict just the abovementioned ethnic minorities, it is very much a condition developed through lifestyle habits. Norway is now seeing a decrease in the cases of pre-diabetes, mainly because they are changing their lifestyle. You can do the same and achieve the same results.

If you are an adult male or female of any race, and crave sweets, tell your doctor and he/she will let you know if you should be tested. If a family member has type 2 diabetes, you should consider being tested, or at least speak to your doctor.

If you are concerned because of other factors, such as high blood pressure or high cholesterol, ask your doctor if testing for pre-diabetes is necessary for you. This is a preventative measure and a good one.

What should I eat?

There is a big confusion about what pre-diabetics should eat, because there are many claims about helpful diets. A healthy diet, which includes the keto diet, generally works well. In 2019, a new Food Guide was released in Canada. In this version, food manufacturers were not consulted, in order to avoid their recommending of their products, as they had in the past.  In the new guide, it was high recommended that people stop drinking sugar-sweetened drinks, such as sweetened milk and fruit juices. Since 2012, my research found sugar to be the main culprit in causing pre-diabetes. It has taken this long for research and the government to confirm this.

Diabetes: My Story

In September 2009, my family doctor, Dr.  Robinson, diagnosed me as a type 2 diabetic. My blood glucose level was so high that his face turned red as he viewed my test results. “Do you know the danger you are in?” he asked me. “You are not far from going into cardiac arrest.”

Signs of diabetes

I had been experiencing signs of diabetes that I was not aware were signs of diabetes. I was having extreme cravings for sweets, which I indulged. I experienced rapid weight-loss and frequent urination for several weeks. At first, I was so happy that I had gone from 215 pounds down to 180 pounds in two months.

In the third month after these symptoms had begun, each morning when I went to the washroom, I would see a sticky, whitish substance on my tongue and in the corners of my eyes. I didn’t know what this was so I went to my doctor. He sent me for tests that morning and by 1 p.m., his receptionist called and asked me to rush back to his office.

A diagnosis of type 2 diabetes

Dr. Robinson immediately informed me that I had become diabetic. According to him, the whitish, sticky substance coming out of my tongue and the corners of my eyes was excess sugar buildup exiting my body. When he said this, I went into shock. I sat staring at the wall, speechless. This was followed by a feeling of disappointment since I believed it was my actions that had put me in this position. My next reaction was denial. A few days later, when I had settled down, I had to accept reality.

My doctor put me on large doses of Metformin.  The next thing I knew, I woke up one morning and couldn’t see. I thought I had gone blind and started panicking. People appeared as a blur. I could make out the shape of cars. Large apartment buildings were vague structures. A friend helped me and called Dr. Robinson, who explained that the sugar was beginning to withdraw from my body, including from my eyes, causing my vision to shut down. He said that it should return to normal within four weeks.

The permanent cure for diabetes

I didn’t know that diabetes type 2 could be permanently cured and had always thought that it was a permanent disease that had to be managed by taking medication. Adding to this was the fact that my doctor prescribed medication for me, just like all doctors do for their newly-diagnosed diabetics. I was not happy with the circumstance I had put myself in. Frustrated, I went back to me doctor and asked him point blank, “Dr. Robinson, can type 2 diabetes be cured?” He replied, “Yes.” He then explained what cured means, which is that after the diabetes is reversed and it does not return for two years, it is considered cured. Interestingly, I discovered that there was no research to indicate that type 2 diabetes could not be cured. This led me to work with a total of five doctors while I researched a cure.

As a result, I developed a three-part program and tested it. After some adjustments, on the third trial, I succeeded in reversing my diabetes in 21 days. The process was quick because I was already managing the diabetes with medication. The day my doctor pronounced me diabetes-free, he said, “Congratulations. I am so proud of you. So tell me. How did you do it?”

He continued, “In my 40 years of practicing medicine, you are only the second patient I have seen who was able to reverse his diabetes. You are unique.”

I told him that since I now know, first hand, that both pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes can be cured, I need to help others. To this he replied, “That is an excellent idea!” Each time I tell people my story, they ask, “How did you do it?”

Some time ago, WebMD—a healthcare information provider to doctors and consumers—sent a Ph.D.-educated person to interview me. During the interview, the lady confirmed that type 2 diabetes can be cured. My story was published by WebMD in their magazine WebMD Diabetes as well as on their website. You can see me reading the article in a video on this website.

Other researchers, including one, Dr McInnes, who specializes in curing type 2 diabetes, published an article in which she clearly stated that type 2 diabetes can be reversed and cured with exercise and a calorie-reduced diet.

I have included my before and after the cure test results, as well as my doctor’s hand-written testimonial for you see by going through this link, Diabetes: My Story.  My blood glucose level when the diabetes was reversed had been brought down to 6.2 millimoles.  My blood pressure was excellent, according to my doctor.  My A1C was 5.5—absolutely incredible results. These are the kind of results you should seek.
