The Poet's (Forty Pound) Weight Loss Plan  by Carl Nelson

​Losing weight is hard. Most diet plans will work, if people could just continue the discipline. What The Poet’s Weight Loss Plan does differently is to conceive of weight loss in terms of the discipline required and to peel the banana from the other end. We start with the amount of discipline that the average person has shown they can sustain and design a weight loss plan from there. What most people want in a weight loss program is to continue eating as they currently eat and to lose weight as fast as is possible. The Poet’s Weight Loss Plan is our closest approximation to this - in a book of explanatory prose and humorous poetry.
