Join author Laura Dolan-Hayes on a twenty-eight month long journey beginning June 3, 2010 and ending on October 19, 2012, chronicling her thoughts, ideas, and frustrations over her own personal state of obesity and the state of the world’s obesity at large. Watch as she struggles with the facts about weight that she understands intellectually but has great difficulty integrating emotionally. Observe as she identifies the lies, myths, and misconceptions of weight control, and how mankind has managed to foul things up pretty badly in the last fifty years. It is a highly personal exploration where she identifies today’s weight obsession as no different from being a part of a cult or suffering from a social anxiety disorder. As the author moves through the concepts and gets more and more clarity on the topic, she emerges in the end with the shockingly simple key to returning to a state of perfect natural thinness without diet, exercise, or spending a dime.
Remember, in 1965 zero dollars were spent on the business of fat. That's because there was zero market for the business. Why you ask? Because The Naturally Thin Empire was still holding power. Today, under The Cult of Fat, the weight loss and exercise industry rakes in billions of dollars per year worldwide, and I haven’t even begun to talk about the money medicine pulls in. Yet we keep getting fatter! Of course there are people out there who legitimately have a metabolism issue, but I would imagine that they would be here on this earth at approximately the same percentage rate as in 1965. But more than sixty percent of Americans are considered to be obese, and I would imagine the percentage of obese Americans in 1965 was in the single digits, or less. Let us not forget there was a time when an obese woman’s only job prospect was to be The Fat Lady in a circus side show. The rarity of obesity back then caused people to stop and actually stare in disbelief, and to pay money for the opportunity. Today it is normal. What a mess we've created.
The concept in this book marries the Law of Attraction with the state the world finds itself in on the topic of obesity. I am an expert on the Law of Attraction based on my previous book Unemployed: How Desperation Led Me to the Worst Job Ever. I have personally returned to my state of perfect weight using the Law of Attraction, or as I like to call it, the Principle of Deliberate Creation. I want to share with the world how to return to this perfect state of natural thinness without diet or exercise and demonstrate how badly we humans have fouled things up over the last fifty years. The current state of obesity is a recent phenomenon that has never happened in the tens of thousands of years of human existence.
