Welcome to my shame-free environment. If you’re looking for a foul-mouthed drill sergeant with a YouTube channel to make you feel bad about yourself, you’ve come to the wrong place.Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 3.45.57 PM

Shaming people leads to weight gain, not weight loss. I have no tolerance for it. You can love your body and still have a desire to change it. It’s time to feel the love, and learn the truth.

Whether it’s 20 pounds or 200 that you want to lose, I am here to teach you:

The 7 Secrets of Weight Loss Success

7 Secrets? Oh, sounds … mystical!

The reality is that these “secrets” were not discovered as ancient scrolls uncovered deep in a Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 3.47.45 PMmusty cave in a faraway land. They quite literally are the secrets that the weight loss industry doesn’t want you to know about.

At a consumer level, the weight loss industry is more corrupt than any other. Every couple of years the Federal Trade Commission does a massive survey to evaluate consumer fraud, and the #1 form of fraud that people are victims of is always weight loss.

Always.Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 3.47.55 PM

This industry lies to you. They promise quick and easy results using pills, potions, powders and horse pucky. They sell “miracles” in a bottle, put you on fad diets, starvation diets, or sell you exercise contraptions via infomercials that rapidly turn into coat racks. They sell wraps and creams and electro-shocker belts for your abs. Weights that shake and underwear that allegedly burn calories. You can even buy “weight loss earrings.”

Some of these scams are overt, like the underpants and the earrings, and others are much moreScreen Shot 2015-10-05 at 3.48.09 PM subtle, like a gimmicky diet that sounds really cool and “science based” on the surface.

Because of the mass of marketing money invested in these scams, the REAL way to lose weight is obscured. The real methods that actually work have become “secrets” in need of uncovering so you can finally lose weight and keep it off.

That’s what this seminar is all about. No gimmicks. No scams. Just what you finally need to knowScreen Shot 2015-10-05 at 3.21.45 PM to lose weight and keep it off. As a bonus, you’ll end up saving money by never falling for another weight loss scam, as well as learning how to spend money wisely rather than dropping $10,000 a year on a “trainer” with a weekend certification. Because that actually happens. A lot.

Who Is James Fell?

It’s me, and I don’t like talking about myself in the third person.Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 3.41.52 PM

Yes, I live in Calgary, and I’m also one of the most read fitness / weight loss writers in the world, with millions of people reading my work each month. And there is a reason for that: because I know what I’m talking about, and what I say resonates with people. I have a syndicated column for the Chicago Tribune that runs in dozens of newspapers, and also write columns for the Los Angeles Times and AskMen, and contribute toScreen Shot 2015-10-05 at 3.41.34 PM TIME Magazine and Men’s Health. And for four years I was the fitness expert for Chatelaine.

I’m the fitness expert for QR77 radio, on every Monday at 4:45 and a regular on CBC Alberta at Noon as well at Breakfast Television and Global TV. I’ve given hundreds of presentations to many thousands of people, and worked one-on-one with many clients to help them achieve their weight loss goals.

I get endorsements from the top researchers in health, fitness and weight loss – MDs, PhDs and RDs endorse me and my book – and I have lost count of how many doctors recommend my work to their clients. Yes, I charge for my services. Purchasing ab crunch machines, garcinia cambogia diet pills, or HCG injections is a waste of money, but making an investment to learn from a respected and science-based expert who has helped many thousands of people can be the right decision. It’s not the entire weight loss industry that’s full of crap, just the most profitable part.

If I wanted to be rich (and was morally bankrupt), I’d package up my neighbor’s dog poo into gelatine capsules and sell it on the Internet as an all-natural appetite suppressant. Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 3.39.25 PM


What are the 7 Secrets?

If you want to find out, you must pay.

That’s me trying to be funny. But yeah, you need to attend the seminar. Go here to register.

Is one of the secrets “Eat less, move more”?Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 3.36.51 PM

No. Eat less, move more is a crock. Yes, in order to lose weight you must be in a caloric deficit – anyone who tells you otherwise is either lying or grossly misinformed – and this is best achieved via reducing caloric intake and increasing physical activity. BUT, you can’t just boil down the intricacies of such lifestyle change down to a sound bite.Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 3.36.34 PM

Eat less, move more is a crock because most people have no idea how to actually do that. The weight loss industry, with all it’s misinformation, has made it far more difficult.

Imagine someone falls out of a boat and it’s miles to shore. They don’t know how to swim. Do you tell them to “Drown less, swim more”?Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 3.36.07 PM

No. You throw them a life preserver. You help them get over their fear of the water, and you teach them to swim so eventually they can make it to shore on their own.

The 7 Secrets are all about teaching you how to swim. It will teach you how to get past your fear of your own body and learn to love what it can do. It will teach you the real secrets of how your metabolism works and how to create consistent caloric deficits to lose weight. It will help you Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 3.35.50 PMmanage your time, get over excuses, and get you to embrace small changes that are easy to incorporate and lead to lasting weight loss that involves no suffering or silly diets.

And yes, you can still eat chocolate.
