Question: Hi Josh I’ve tried almost everything to drop the pounds in the past but I can’t seem to follow through and get results. I’ve got a half dozen diet programs at my house gathering dust, exercise DVDs, exercise equipment, and a gym membership I never use.
I’m about ready to throw in the towel and just give up… but today I heard about a medical hypnosis program called “Enjoying Weight Loss.” Is it the real deal or a scam? I want to set a good example for my two children, Lisa and Mathew and I want to feel good about myself again. What do you think of it?–Rachel Goddard, West Virginia

Last week I got an email from a woman named Lisa who told me she had lost 31 lbs using a rather unusual cell phone app called “Lose It” along with the recommendations from my BellyFatFree program.
(Great job Lisa!)
Now I’ve never been a big fan of tracking calories because it can be a pain, but I decided to give this App a try on my iPhone to see what all of the fuss was about… (I think it’s available on other smart phones, too. Oh, they have a web site you can use also… in case you don’t have a smart phone.) (more…)
