According to these boomer-generation authors, every other diet to date is destined to deliver loss of lean muscle mass, more fat, moodiness, disappointment and failure. Instead, Dian and Tom provide an exciting new roadmap using a unique 8-step program that has been called the “Holy Grail of Fat Loss” and even the “Fountain of Youth.” Building on an exotic car metaphor, their system requires no strenuous exercise, supplements or special equipment. They show readers how to get on the road to eliminate excess body fat fast and forever. Within 3 days the program promises to: begin training your body to use excess body fat for energy; show everyday activities that will quickly accelerate fat-loss; teach mini-exercises requiring only 3-5 minutes each day that will trigger fat-burning while strengthening muscle; explain the ideal foods and how to eat them to burn your body fat fast; eliminate any related diet anxiety or moodiness; prove that you are truly getting younger; and, provide easy ways to maintain your new lean and healthy body with minimal effort for life.

As for the program’s core 8-Step strategy, it definitely flies in the face of conventional “diet and fitness” advice. In fact, Step 1 boldly suggests you forget everything you have ever read or heard about dieting in newspapers, magazines and on TV or radio. Step 2 explains the fundamental flaw in every diet and teaches readers how to measure body fat—the only thing you want to lose. Step 3 introduces the fat burning elixir to which we all have easy access. Step 4 teaches you a daily “trick” for rapid loss of excess fat. In Steps 5 and 6 you learn why exercise—recommended with every other “weight loss” diet—is actually detrimental to your efforts and is actually a recipe for moodiness and failure. Instead, readers learn how a mere 3-5 minutes a day is all that is necessary. In Step 7, the reason behind our urge to binge at nighttime is explained and readers learn about TurboCharging food choices. Step 8 presents simple techniques for seeing and retaining your fabulous new physique. It is easy to stay TurboCharged™ for the rest of your life.

The TurboCharged™ Difference:

Did you know…
• 3-5 mini-strength routines can maintain or reverse loss of muscle mass during dieting?
• that the total time commitment for muscle retention can be accomplish this in only 5 minutes per day?
• eliminating aerobic and other strenuous exercise until a lean state is achieved is crucial to fat loss success?
• aerobics and strenuous weight training are perceived as a threat by the brain and actually cause fat gain?
• that fluids can be used to mimic bariatric surgery?
• specific food groups, based on early human evolution, should not be combined at meals?

TurboCharged provides all these answers and more. It is a completely holistic program that is inexpensive, healthy, nutritious and easily incorporate by anyone.

Sister and brother, Dian and Tom Griesel have spent the last 30 years studying health, exercise, longevity and stress management while working with renowned scientific researchers. Both are in their 50s according to the calendar, yet can prove that they are not only leaner and stronger but are now metabolically teenagers as a result of the TurboCharged steps they share with readers.

“TurboCharged doesn’t bog down the reader with lots of science. Instead, it tells you what to do, when to do it, and if you follow the very simple guidelines, you too will be dropping fat fast, leaning out and attaining your goal of a lower body-fat percentage, decreases in inches and a younger metabolic age. TurboCharged is a system designed with genetics in mind and based on sound science. With a combination like that, you can’t fail.”
