Weight loss is a billion-dollar industry with the same dirty politics and false promises as any billion-dollar industry. As a producer of weight loss TV for more than a decade, Brant shares the ins and outs alongside his guests; the most prolific producer of weight loss TV and best-selling author JD Roth and weight loss guru and mentalist from “I Can Make You Thin” Paul McKenna.

If you think the world is against you losing weight… you’d be right. Eat less and move more is the simple formula but everything about your physiology and genetic programming is working against you. Then pile on the food, diet, fitness and pharmaceutical industries’ vested interest in keeping you overweight, and you’ve got a recipe for a national obesity epidemic.  On this episode, Brant dives past the gimmicks and quick fixes to explore the mental and emotional restraints that keep people from losing the weight and keeping it off.
