At the wooden kitchen table in his rambling home in the horse country of Waccabuc, N.Y., Mike Berland, a crisis manager, public-opinion researcher and veteran political pollster, assessed the so-far lackluster campaign performance of Jeb Bush, the Republican presidential candidate.

Mr. Berland, who has worked for the campaigns of Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton and Michael R. Bloomberg, is certain he has identified Mr. Bush’s key problem: He is not eating enough fat.

A Fat Burning Machine Testimonial

Janet Reuss

I have been obese for the last 20 years. I could never understand why I couldn’t lose weight.  I’m intelligent and have plenty of will power, but diets didn’t work for me. I’ve yo-yo dieted and tried all the popular programs, like Jenny Craig and Weight Watchers, but I never succeeded. I always felt terrible about not losing weight, and blamed myself for failing.

Desperate, I researched Duke University’s health and wellness program and decided to give it a try. I lived on campus for four weeks in a very…Read More »

I had gotten to a weight that was making me miserable – 193 pounds! Comments from people were all too frequent and my health was declining. I had terrible back pain, I couldn’t sleep well and I was always tired during the day. I believed it was all attributable to my carrying too much weight. I didn’t want to look in the mirror or step on a scale. I decided to become a Fat-Burning Machine because simply put – I had finally had enough. I had seen the positive impact of the Fat-Burning Machine diet and exercise program had…Read More »

Before starting the Fat-Burning Machine Diet Plan, I considered myself a pretty healthy person. I would eat the recommended fruits & veggies per day, eat mostly lean meats, and exercise regularly. I exercised some 6 to 10 hours a week doing cycling, weights and yoga. But – I was always hungry and struggling because my weight was slowly creeping up. No matter what I tried, I couldn’t seem to get down to my “fighting weight.”

Then along came Gale Bernhardt, Mike Berland and the Fat Burning Machine Diet. After implementing the Fat-Burning Machine program, my weight loss was slow but steady. I’ve lost 10 pounds…Read More »

I have always prided myself in being able to eat pretty much whatever I desired as long as I reasonably balanced the calorie intake with exercise. Through my 20’s and 30’s this approach kept my weight gains below the national average (in 15 years I think I gained about 10 lbs). However, I had borderline high blood pressure and tended to “binge” exercise (no consistency, 4 hour mountain bike ride on the weekend but nothing throughout the week). In my early 40’s I decided to renew a commitment I had made to my self as a teenager…Read More »
