I’ve been following Primal/Slow Carb for years in addition to maintaining a rigorous workout schedule every week. It has been super frustrating to be doing everything “right” but (as [Pete] sympathizes) to see my fat loss ideal always just out of reach. It’s especially torturous when you are lean but can’t seem to break past the plateau despite following the advice of several fitness gurus. Within a week of experimenting with the techniques outlined in [The Straightforward Fat Loss Handbook] I began seeing reliable yet dramatic results. It’s as simple as it gets so it feels relieving to finally find a solution that works. I only wish I had found it sooner!

Pete … provides a very effective, science based approach to losing fat … I’ve read dozens of books on nutrition and fitness; Pete’s book is unique in providing a very practical path that can be used to reduce bodyfat without making yourself crazy … Kudos to [Pete] for [an] excellent book that presents a very realistic formula for getting lean. Highly recommended.

[Pete] does a great job breaking [fat loss] down to a simple to follow strategy to get lean and stay sane.
With the amount of saturation in the fitness industry today, there’s no shortage of opinions on what workouts and what diets will get you ripped as fast as possible. It hardly seems like anyone is honest about what they do anymore, which is why [straightforwardfatloss.com] has been such a breath of fresh air.
I stumbled upon the blog looking for a general opinion on fat burners and their effectiveness, and spent the better part of that morning reading through a lot more articles on the website. What I appreciated most was the honesty and scientific proof behind what Pete was claiming. I had never signed up for any sort of professional help or personal training because I thought it would be a waste of time and money, but Pete’s general philosophy towards fat loss made me think it was worth a try.
I had trouble losing weight in the past not due to a lack of effort, but a lack of guidance. There are so many online coaches who will tell you that you ought to try their way, when really, what this program teaches is you have to lose fat your way. I’ve established a system that fits my preferences, my schedule, and most importantly, my lifestyle. I now feel comfortable with the plan I have, and fully expect progress to continue over the coming months. For the first time in a while, it seems like I’m actually getting somewhere rather than going around in circles.
[After] 13 weeks … I’ve lost 10 lbs, maintained a majority of my strength, and feel a whole lot better about how to progress moving forward. I also firmly believe you will get out of this program what you put into it. There is no cookie cutter meal plan, no nonsensical diet restrictions, and no extra fitness industry fluff – it’s simple, effective, and straightforward.

… [Pete’s] e-book is on point in terms of outlining eating in moderation and quitting snacking. Since I started keeping track of my weight and what I ate starting in September I’ve lost 5-6 pounds.

Really enjoyed [Pete’s] no nonsense book … Love [his] attitude of using the easiest way possible, it’s so refreshing. Taking away the depressing stress of needing to have a complete lifestyle change is so liberating as is equally the joy of being able to eat only foods I love. I found [his] approach at the end part of my weight loss and wish I had found it sooner.

This is the 4th time I’m trying to reach my weight goal as a young adult. And for the first time, exactly today as I write this testimony, I have hit the halfway point: 25 kg [55lbs] lost after 8 months. What am I doing right this time? I’m keeping it simple and straightforward, just like Pete … thanks to … StraightforwardFatLoss[.com].
