MODULE 1: The Shocking Heartbreak of Diabesity

They cut off my foot. I went blind. You deserved better.

We cannot solve a problem this widespread without understanding it first. In Module 1 you will discover the often overlooked causes of Diabesity as well as the one surprising discovery that immunizes you against its deadly consequences forever. These symptoms are painful, debilitating, and heartbreaking, but they are avoidable. Why has modern medicine missed this epidemic for so long and why is it failing to stop it now? While the government and media have given us guidelines and headlines that made us sick for decades, a small group of ground-breaking doctors at The Harvard Medical School are showing us the exact root causes of Diabesity and simple steps you can take to avoid it forever.

Join us on this journey around the world to pull back the curtain on what has been called “the pandemic of our times,” and discover the simple solutions that can heal your body and mind, protect your loved ones from these painful consequences and save billions (literally!) from the pain of a Diabesity or Pre-Diabesity diagnosis.

  • Why Diabesity increases your risk of heart disease, stroke, dementia, Alzheimer’s, cancer, high blood pressure, amputation, blindness, and kidney failure more than any other medical condition.
  • The one shocking discovery Jonathan made after studying 1,300 studies over 15 years that changed everything he believed about health in an instant.
  • “Please don’t take my leg” – How Diabesity killed Jonathan’s grandfather (his “superman”) and how that shaped Jonathan’s entire life.
  • The only scientifically proven way that can avoid this disease while becoming a member of that exclusive “club” of naturally slim and healthy people who are “automatically” protected from diabetes and obesity.
  • Take the Diabesity Quiz to find out if you or your family members are at risk now, or in the future.
  • Why Diabesity means your metabolic system is suffering from a “clog”, which can include your brain, gut, and hormones, and how these imbalances lead to the deadly medical issues associated with Diabesity.


MODULE 2: The Invisible Force Determining Your Diabesity Destiny

Understanding My Setpoint Changed Everything. I Found The Secret To Becoming Naturally Thin. Now I Know I’ll Never Yo-yo Diet Again.

In this module you will discover the breakthrough science behind your setpoint weight. You will also see how over 1,300 studies and top Doctors at Harvard Medical School reveal that an “elevated setpoint” is the root cause of Diabesity. The human body is a beautifully complex biological machine. Your brain, gut, and hormones all work together through a highly coordinated system to help stabilize your body weight and blood sugar—the same way they automatically stabilize your body temperature and blood pressure. This is called your “Setpoint.”

You will be introduced to some of the leading thought leaders and researchers that are shattering what you have been taught about bodyweight, diabetes, mood, and energy.

Whether you critically need to reverse a full-blown Diabesity diagnosis, or simply want to lose a few pounds, this is the information and tools you have been missing. The starting point of this journey is looking at exactly how your “setpoint weight” works—and why lowering it is the ONLY way to enjoy a healthy weight and blood sugar levels LONG-TERM.

You will discover:

  • The shocking reason that starvation dieting and elimination diets makes you sick and gain weight, while leading to yo-yo dieting, eating disorders, and an elevated setpoint.
  • Why lowering your setpoint means effortless, natural weight loss and diabetes protection, along with more energy, better sleep, and a natural immunity against depression, anxiety, dementia, Alzheimer’s, and heart disease..
  • Why calories count but you never need to count them, and why that means you eat more–but smarter–to lose weight and balance blood sugar permanently.
  • How your brain, gut, and hormones talk to one another through various feedback loops to synchronize the activities that automatically maintain body fat and blood sugar at a specific level, otherwise known as your setpoint.
  • Why lowering your setpoint isn’t just one way to lose weight; it’s the only sustainable way to keep it off permanently, and it’s the only guaranteed long term defense against obesity and diabetes.
  • Practical steps you can take today to begin the process of lowering your setpoint and avoiding or reversing diabesity.
