3 Week Diet

The 3 Week Diet

NEW YORK, NY / October 6, 2016 – Dieters frustrated with typical diets that either don’t work or that produce minimal weight loss now have another choice — a revolutionary program that guarantees weight loss of 12-23 pounds in just three weeks.

The program, which is being called “The 3 Week Diet,” was developed by Brian Flatt, an experienced nutritionist and personal trainer from Southern California. He says he created the program as a solution “to all of those ‘mainstream’ diet programs which are time-consuming, inefficient and just plain ineffective.”

“After reading well over 500 medical studies, dozens of diet books and reviewing hundreds of diet systems, programs, gadgets, pills and potions, I have put together what I feel is the ultimate rapid weight loss diet system,” Flatt said. “This program is the result of more than a decade of research and more than two and a half years of real-world tweaking and testing.”

One big difference between this program and other diets is its focus on cellular inflammation, Flatt indicated.

According to Flatt, cellular inflammation is the real cause of weight gain, yet most diets ignore that fact.

“If we take control of cellular inflammation, we can effectively increase our ability to lose weight, burn fat, increase metabolism and keep body fat from ever coming back,” Flatt said.

His 3 Week Diet also:

Focuses on correcting the bad information dieters receive
Avoids counting calories or the “eat less – exercise more” mantra that the medical community has been pushing for decades
Gives dieters an easy to follow, step-by-step plan of action
Produces quick results so dieters don’t get discouraged and continue jumping from diet plan to diet plan

“Most of the diet plans out there approach weight loss with a slow and sensible approach,” Flatt said. “Yes, it’s true that if you eat certain foods and work out really hard for an hour or so every day, you will lose weight. The problem, however, is that the weight comes off way too slowly because these types of diet plans don’t attack the stubborn, stored body fat.”

Flatt designed his program to provide dieters with essential nutrients that the body needs for good health and proper functioning, while eliminating all those nutrients that slow — and even stop — a person from burning fat.

The program not only gives dieters a step-by-step blueprint to lose weight, but also utilizes supplements that help dieters recruit body fat to be burned for fuel, maintain lean body mass, and increase their metabolism.

ABOUT THE 3 WEEK DIET

The 3 Week Diet focuses on three main components to help dieters lose unwanted weight: diet, exercise and mindset. Dieters learn what to eat, when to eat and how to eat to lose weight. They also get supplement and exercise tips to speed up their weight loss even more. Finally, they develop the mindset, or willpower, to lose weight and keep it off. The 3 Week Diet was developed by health and nutrition coach and personal trainer Brian Flatt. Brian is the owner of R.E.V. Fitness, a personal training facility based in Southern California.

On May 30th, 2015 we had a big do in Rome.

My grandson, Joe got married to a beautiful Arab girl in Rome. (All very international, no?) My son, William, was one of three best men – the others being my other grandsons Joe’s brothers, Julius and Alexander.

All the best,

A book, ghostwritten by John, has been sold by Mark Wolper to Warner Bothers.

John has been a professor at Pratt Institute of Technology’s Graduate School of Engineering in New York City, at King Fahd University in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia and John Cabot University in Rome, Italy.

He has also worked for the United Nations Development Programme as a U.N. Expert in Kingston, Jamaica, and as a consultant to the United Nations Secretariat in New York.

A native-born American, John speaks Italian, French, and Spanish, Jeddah-Street-Boy Arabic and spices his conversation with a wealth of Yiddish expressions—thanks to all his Jewish stepmothers.

John is the co-author of Escape from Paradise, Amazon’s best-selling book for Singapore. For years it was assumed the book had been banned in Singapore. Only recently, did Singapore’s Media Development Authority MDA confirm by email that Escape from Paradise had never been banned.

Escape from Paradise was not banned by Singapore, but by a lawyer, Helen Yeo. Her husband, Yeo Cheow Tong, was formerly a Singapore cabinet minister and, consequently, Helen Yeo had a lot of clout.

The reason for Helen Yeo’s pushing to get Escape from Paradise banned was that she was afraid that it might lead to expose a property transaction in which she was involved or was she bribed? Escape from Paradise did nothing to expose her, and mentioned her only in passing. However Helen Yeo did not want to take the risk that someone might connect the dots if any existed.

Helen Yeo was formerly the Managing Partner of Rodyk & Davidson, a Singapore law firm. She no longer holds that position. Her husband, Yeo Cheow Tong, is no longer a Singapore Cabinet Minister, nor is he a Member of Singapore’s Parliament.

The Tiger Balm KingsEscape from Paradise is about the daughter of a Singapore family—a family whose founders were referred to as the “Tiger Balm Kings,” as they built a pharmaceutical, banking, and newspaper empire from the well-known ointment called “Tiger Balm.”

C. V. Devan Nair, former President of Singapore wrote of Escape from Paradise, “It took me two and a half evenings to complete your un-put-downable book…it is a unique contribution to the appreciation of a life in Singapore. Thank you for having written it.”

Escape from Paradise is now being made into a movie, and, of all people, John Harding is doing the screenplay and is listed on IMDb.
