Part II - Is Paul McKenna’s "I Can Make You Thin" a Scam?

Last entry I touched on the new TLC program “I Can Make You Thin”, hosted by Paul McKenna.

As I mentioned last time, I always encourage a healthy dose of skepticism when someone makes tantalizing claims of effortless weight-loss.

Mr. McKenna states that this is possible by following his four simple steps. In this series of upcoming posts I will summarize each step, and then give my verdict on as to whether the information is great, okay, flawed, or just plain awful.

Step 1: If you are hungry, EAT!

Paul McKenna’s Reasoning: By starving yourself and restricting calories, you are ultimately lowering your metabolism. Your body thinks that it is going into starvation mode and starts holding on to body fat for dear life and lowers the amount of calories your burn.

Rylan’s Verdict:

Great Advice: This is actually one of the biggest problems I see with my client’s nutritional plans (or lack thereof). Most are simply trying to starve themselves into losing weight, and this never, I repeat - NEVER works! Your metabolism drops, and when you go off the diet, you gain ALL the weight back plus some. Thus you end up in the all-to-common cycle of crash diets followed by weight gain.

By eating when you are hungry, and eating frequently, you keep your body burning calories throughout the day – you don’t give your metabolism the opportunity to slow down.

Rylan’s Recommendation:

This doesn’t mean you now have a cart blanche for pigging out. Keep the meals conservatively sized (portion size is probably the biggest nutritional problem - no pun intended – that I see) and spaced out to every 2-3 hours at most. By feeding yourself frequently, you don’t allow your metabolism to bite the dust, and you don’t let your hunger get out of control either.

Note: The biggest trick to this step is knowing when you are actually hungry, and not just using food to boost your mood. More on that later…

Is Paul McKenna's "I Can Make You Thin" a SCAM?

If you haven’t seen it yet, there’s a new show on TLC called “I Can Make You Thin”.

It’s hosted by professional hypnotherapist and Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) specialist Paul McKenna.

Mr. McKenna promises that he can teach you how to lose weight without will power. He accomplishes this by teaching four simple steps that he states will fundamentally change the way you view and eat food.

Now that’s a pretty big statement.

I’m usually VERY skeptical about anyone that comes up with some new and fantastic weight loss method.

99% of the time it’s snake oil.

But I have to admit, after watching the first episode of this program I was actually pretty impressed. There are some similarities between myself and Mr. McKenna in our approaches to weight loss.

The four steps that Mr. McKenna’s method contains do consist of some very valuable information. However, there are certain things he preaches that I do take exception to.

In case you missed this program, or you don’t have access to it, you will want to check back here often over the coming days.

In the next few posts I am going to review each of Mr. McKenna’s steps, and give my unbiased review as to weather they are something that you should consider implementing into your life, or better off left alone.

In fact, many of these ideas that I will touch on are the perfect compliment to the Go Sleeveless Program.
By implementing these tactics with the goal of reducing flabby arms, you could easily amplify your results, and change even faster.

So keep checking back to learn more about my thoughts on Mr. McKenna's program and learn a few secrets about how to you can make some major improvements in your body today.
