His book contains simple steps—each the result of cutting-edge research, put into practice in real people’s lives. Kelly shares with us today how they’ll work for you too!
Stacey Chillemi: What inspired you to write your book, “Simple Baby Steps to Permanent Weight Loss and True Cellular Health”?
Greg J. Kelly: The book is really a culmination of years watching people fail at losing weight. The concept was to just put as many simple ideas that people could do easily and inexpensively to lose weight and keep it off. I focus on a total mind shift rather than a fad.
Stacey Chillemi: How did you come up with the title?
Greg J. Kelly: It’s my third book and the title usually finds itself as I go along. My main goal was to capture the reader’s attention quickly and let them know that true, permanent weight loss comes quicker and lasts longer when you change lifestyle traits rather than quick fixes.
Stacey Chillemi: Is there a message in your book that you want readers to grasp?
Greg J. Kelly: Yes, the main message is that getting healthy leads to weight loss, not the other way around. Sure, if you lose a few pounds you will be healthier but attaining true cellular health, a level few of us ever get, will allow your body to burn fat and purge toxins. This is a better way to go through life.
Stacey Chillemi: What’s the most important point you’re trying to make in your e-book when it comes to nutrition, dieting, and weight loss?
Greg J. Kelly: I think the most important concept is that if you make truly small, simple steps and maintain them as a new way of life you can and will see dramatic results not just in the belt size but in your energy, vitality, sleeping habits, mood, etc. People today tend to battle the natural health they were born with. Go natural, purge the toxins.
Stacey Chillemi: In your book, you talk about cellular health, what exactly is cellular health?
Greg J. Kelly: Good question. Cellular health is the Holy Grail that all of us should reach for. This is not just feeling and looking good but knowing you are pure through and through. Every aspect of your physical being is clean from the outside of your skin to the center of your nucleus. This really can be achieved by simple diet changes and moderate exercise.
Stacey Chillemi: In America, we have a distorted, incorrect view about what it takes to become lean, healthy, and long-lived, primarily because no one knows the real answer. Do you think the public is better informed or more confused about nutrition and weight loss?
Greg J. Kelly: Unfortunately the public is brainwashed by the endless marketing budgets of big corporations; we have all fallen prey to the ‘benefits’ offered up by big food, fast food, cheap food, etc. They have massive budgets to influence your food purchases. Your health is far below profit margins.
Stacey Chillemi: What advice can you give to the millions of people who have spent their lifetime dieting and trying to lose weight?
Greg J. Kelly: Simple: forget diets! This is yet just another scam to take your money and they take billions per year. They have all kinds of marketing experts who make their diet programs sound wonderful. If these diets are so good why are we always on them? It would seem to me that you would only need it once if it truly worked. Science has shown that simple, daily lifestyle changes are far more effective than making drastic one-time changes, and it’s true.
Stacey Chillemi: Describe how being toxic can impact people’s lives?
Greg J. Kelly: The vast majority of us are toxic bombs waiting to explode. We live in a world of chemicals and unfortunately, they are everywhere including our bodies. Imagine the changes you would see if you could purge these toxins from your body? You would undoubtedly live a longer, healthier life.
Stacey Chillemi: So why is it so difficult to lose weight?
Greg J. Kelly: I think there are too many temptations to throw us off course. We have all seen people who have dropped pounds and look great and they did this by changing their lifestyles. I have always believed that weight loss will come naturally once you seek true health. There is a thin body in all of us. Daily snacking is also a main factor. Almost 30% of our daily calories come from little snacks, it really adds up.
Stacey Chillemi: How can people effectively improve their overall health and successfully achieve weight loss?
Greg J. Kelly: Luckily this is one of the easier things we can do. In the book, I go over many simple things from drinking the right water to eating cinnamon and wheatgrass, to having a small teaspoon of diatomaceous earth and virgin coconut oil, and of course many other things. These little baby steps can reap huge health benefits and the subsequent weight loss that will follow.
Stacey Chillemi: Why is changing eating habits so difficult?
Greg J. Kelly: We are all creatures of habit and big food and big marketing are aware of it. Heck every time I walk past a box of Captain Crunch I get the shakes and almost cave in and buy it because I was conditioned as a kid to crave them. But as an adult, I know better. We have to ignore the temptation. We are surrounded by food-like products designed to keep us feeling good so we come back for more.
Stacey Chillemi: What methods or techniques do you find most helpful for losing weight?
Greg J. Kelly: Over the years I have narrowed immediately ‘feeling better’ to a few simple things: Drink more spring water daily especially first thing in the morning. Stop High Fructose Corn Syrup right now! It’s in everything and is the main culprit for weight gain and feeling lousy. Stop MSG. This little chemical on its own can trigger the brain to store fat. Cut down on the sugar. Walk. Walk until you feel the burn and do it daily. These are just a few of the simple baby steps anyone can start right now.
Stacey Chillemi: Do you have any advice for people suffering from being overweight?
Greg J. Kelly: Yes. Life is short and there is no reason to live it worrying about a number on a scale that is going to make you feel like crap every time you look at it. Toss the scale. Focus on making yourself healthy rather than losing pounds. We are all different in every way; short, fat, tall, bald, skinny, etc. down the line. Accept who you are and work on internal health. You will be amazed at the transformation your body will make with simple daily baby steps.
Stacey Chillemi: Where can people find your book?
Greg J. Kelly: You can go to amazon and get an ebook copy of my book, “Simple baby steps to permanent weight loss and true cellular health.”
