What can a 28-year Navy aviation veteran teach you about weight loss? Probably a lot more than a poorly-paid affiliate who is hocking diet pills (no prescription needed!) or fad diets. Of course, the latter are legion and there is only one Ed Boullianne.

His book, “You Can’t Outsource Weight Loss,” takes a common sense approach to eating better and living well, which inevitably results in weight loss. It makes quick work of the fad approach to dieting that has Americans enter the yoyo cycle of losing weight, which comes back about as quickly as it was shed — and then some.

In a clever but compassionate manner, Boullianne highlights that the American approach to shedding pounds has become a search for the mindless super pill. Consumers want weight loss to be immediate, painless, thoughtless and convenient. We, literally, want our cake and eat it, too. The author explains that there is no shortcut or magical potion that will make the weight go away while we snack ourselves into early graves.

Bacon is bad for you. You know it, I know it and Ed Boullianne knows it. So why do dieting folks — or those on diet pills — still stock up on the crispy treats? Of course, consumers are not the only ones to blame. The FDA’s arcane labeling regulations and manufacturers’ crafty means of advertising products do add confusion to the mix, but it is once again the consumer’s duty to separate wheat from chaff.

You Can’t Outsource Weight Loss” is an honest, hard-lined approach to a topic that affects more and more Americans. It offers guides for making healthy food and lifestyle choices, and also gives encouragement along the way. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has been burned by the diet industry and also personal laziness.
