A 212 lb obese truck driver takes on the weight loss challenge, follow his amazing journey as he delivers a full and frank verdict on the "Truth About Abs Review".
There I was driving my truck around the UK on different assignments, taking whichever job the agency would pass my way. One day it could be UPS, the next Eddie Stobarts, DHL or Wincanton, either way the hours were long, the work tedious, requiring significant amounts of concentration to keep safe on the highways and by-ways of the UK.
Being a typical British truck driver I ate and drank like the rest of my fellow comrades. Cereal or bacon, eggs, hash browns, beans and toast for breakfast. Sandwiches, crisps and chocolate in my lunch box, and at evening / late night after work anything from fish & chips, doner kebabs, fast foods burgers, pizza, fried chicken, Indian or Chinese take away. Depends what was open at that time of night.
Its June 2012 and I've been cleared to transport goods down to forthcoming London Olympic games. It requires working weekend shifts and when the games start the driving will become a night shift job as no trucks will be allowed on site during the day and understandably so. I'm enjoying the Olympic work, the buzz of the games has gripped the good citizens of the UK with the London Mayor - Boris Johnston chipping in with his famous "The Geiger counter of Olympo-mania is going to go zoink!" (Anyway, I digress!)
As a treat for our hard work, we've been given a food allowance by the good folk involved in supplying goods. This is where it starts to go wrong for me! With no discipline, I'm eating like a man possessed. Burger and fries before heading down the motorway, after clearing the security and dropping off at the various compounds around the Olympic site, depending which compound I ended up at made a difference to what treat I was in store for. One night it could be a bar of chocolate and cup of coffee, the next day it could be a full on meal at the workers canteen. Back up the motorway to stop for fuel and there is a fast food burger eatery open. In for a coffee and something off the menu so I don't have to eat when I get home in the early hours.
All this night work, eating at the wrong times, the wrong types of food and eating way too much seen me put on 10 to 11 pounds in weight in the space of three months. I was 14.5stones before the start of the Olympic work and now I've ballooned to 15st 2lb. Don't forget the beer I'm drinking when I'm off and food I eat at home, with the added biscuits, cakes, ice-cream and chocholates.
It wasn't until November 2012 after returning from a holiday did the stark realization of how huge the stomach had gone. The only course of action was to do something about this stomach shocker.
I decided to do some research on the best way forward for me, I didn't want to go on a 'fad' or celebrity diet, boring calorie counting regime, a milkshake / funny grass drink detox diet, take some dodgy fat burning pill, nor buy some silly stomach belt or crunch gizmo
It had to be sustainable with long-term weight loss results, based on independent facts, improved health, better education on food choices, plus I wanted to tone up my stomach area.
One product kept re-appearing on my radar, so I delved a little further and author Mike Geary was receiving rave Truth About Abs reviews. Here's why, Mike Geary is a Certified Nutrition Specialist and Certified Personal Trainer, so it would be a good call to say he knows what he's talking about.
Also known as The Truth About Six Pack Abs, author Mike Geary has established himself as an expert in the field published on thousands of fitness websites around the world. A contributing author to the popular Muscle & Fitness Magazine & Oxygen Magazine. You may have also heard of other Truth About Abs review's as featured on various radio shows throughout North America.
What really persuaded me to take up the challenge for a Truth About Abs Review is the fact which he's authored one of the best-selling eBooks over the last 7 years, over 539,000 readers in 163 countries to date and great testimonials - with pictures from everyday people - not six-pack models.
Without giving everything away in this Truth About Abs Review, I'm eating much healthier than before, avoiding bad carbs like the plague, training around 3 times per week (if possible due to a bad knee) but still losing weight. Truth About Abs author Mike Geary does actually state its 80% with what we eat and 20% exercise. I can vouch for this because I missed 2-3 weeks of training due to my swollen right knee! Don't forget this isn't just for men it also for women, in fact 60% of the customers who purchased Truth About Abs were women working on getting a flat sexy stomach.
My Truth About Abs Review so far: I started at 15st 2lb and in 24 weeks have lost a total of 22 lbs. I totally am over the moon with this result (13st 8lb) and whilst I've still got 6 lbs to lose, the evidence is amazing. I've dropped a waist size, the stomach is much flatter, without the belly overhang and I feel terrific. I've got more energy than before and for the first time in 10 years I've maintained my weight below 14st. For me the gradual weight loss is better as it took years for the weight to increase, so a steady reduction in weight is better and much safer than the other weight loss programs which these other 'fads' only help you lose water in the first few weeks.
Now for the bad news! People who need to lose weight not only need to eat less junk and guess what? They need to exercise more! Mike Geary pulls no punches and tells its straight and so am I, in this Truth About Abs Review. There is a small investment to be made for dumbbells and a balance ball, but it really is a small price to pay to gain excellent health.
