Wakeup Call



“A couple of years ago, before I decided to become a Fat-Burning Machine, my doctor actually called my home and wanted to speak to me. That was weird. What did she find?  She said that my cholesterol numbers were high and she wanted to start me on a medication to reduce them. She explained that over the years, my bad cholesterol had been moving up and my good cholesterol moving down. After giving me a lecture about changing my diet (for the tenth straight year), she prescribed a drug to help with my cholesterol.

Suddenly, it wasn’t the same old annual…Read More »

The Fat-Burning Machine in me has been awakened! We all have this beast lurking within, but this program is designed to help you get on track and stop the yo-yo dieting and cravings that have plagued many of us for years. So far I have lost 8 pounds over 7 weeks! While this isn’t a huge amount of fat loss, so far, the best part is I feel much better. In particular my atrial fibrillation. I suffer from periodic bouts of atrial fibrillation (AF) – believe me, this is a disease not conducive to physical activity.

Jan Ruess – In one year lost 63 pounds, 9 inches off her waist and plummeted from size 2X to 10/12

“I pretty much resigned myself to being a big fat lady for the rest of my life.”

That changed in a big way after Jan followed the Fat Burning Machine™ plan and dropped 65 pounds.

Most importantly, she has kept the weight off for over two years.

In 1990, Jan decided to quit smoking. Like many people who quit smoking, Jan turned to food as a reward for staying away from cigarettes. Her weight slowly crept up to 238 pounds; not ideal for her 5-foot-3 frame. Soon she was taking heart pills, suffering from aching joints and her once bubbly personality faded as she…Read More »

I’ve been an athlete for 30 years—mainly racing mountain bikes, road bikes and running—but the food thing always eluded me in the complete picture.

I’ve known of Gale’s coaching and racing for a long time. So when I heard she was coming out with a book about nutrition and eating well, I was excited to see what ideas were going to be in the book.

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 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 »
