Dr. Frank has done extensive research to uncover the little-known truth about why a tragic 96% of all weight loss efforts end in failure. His identification of the weight loss "Recipe For Success" and the "Top Four Success Factors" led to discovery that the real, root cause of most weight problems lies in our own self-sabotaging beliefs.

As a result of his groundbreaking discoveries, we can now solve our weight problems once and for all -- at the root -- instead of merely "attacking the symptoms" as all diet and exercise-based approaches do. Dr. Frank's pioneering work in this area has now made it possible for virtually any overweight person to enjoy safe, struggle-free, and permanent weight loss without drugs, pills, or dieting.

"Why are so many of us overweight and out of shape? Not because we don't try hard enought, but because we try hard at the wrong things.

"The research has made it clear that trying to get fit or lose fath through diet and exercise alone is "like trying to get rid of dandelions with a lawn mower." Sure, you may get some visiable results. But until you solve your problem at it's root, it just keeps coming back -- and bigger every year!

"It is said that 'the truth will set you free.' Well the sad truth is that virtually no one understands that the real reasons why they fail (...and fail, and fail...) at weight loss.

"The secret is to understand that lasting weight loss success is not about what goes on your plate, but what goes on between your ears. And if success has eluded you, you can be sure it's not your diet you need to change. It's your thinking!

"The good new is, correcting your own self-sabotaging thinking is both enjoyable and enlightening. It's also extremely rewarding and even life-changing.

"My mission is to help you discover the truth about your own tremendous potential, and work with you to find and fix the self-sabotaging thinking that is -- and always has been -- the real, root cause of your weight problem.

The Permanent Solution is the tested-and-proven, tried-and-true solution to your chronic weight problems. You will learn how to change your self-sabotaging thinking into self-supportive thinking, how to design and create the life and body that you dream of, and how to turn you dreams into the happy, healthy reality you deserve!"
