Best Wishes and Some Personal Thoughts for the New Year, by Fred Bollaci

To my friends, family, colleagues, fans, followers, and supporters,

 

On this last day of 2017, an exciting year, I take time to give pause and reflect where I’ve been and where I’d like to go in 2018 and beyond. Although this is a day (and night) for celebrating, it’s not too early to give thought to what we want for ourselves and from life next year and the positive actions we can take in furtherance of these goals. First, I’m starting off with a New Year’s gratitude list, where I take time to consider the many things I am thankful for. Even when I was very overweight, I started by being grateful I had air in my lungs, two feet that could walk, a good brain in my head, and good taste in food! It helps us set goals and make positive and lasting change and ultimate success by accepting with gratitude exactly who we are and where we are, even if there are aspects we’d like to change. Next, I will create a vision board, whether a list, or actual clippings, say from magazines of things I’d like in my life and of things I’d like to accomplish in the new year or at least work towards (a life plan). Third, I will list and say out loud my resolutions to help me realize the vision! Lastly, tonight, or anytime for that matter, write down anything you’d like to toss from your life—anything negative that may be holding you back. This may a bad habit, something you feel guilty about, or perhaps a grudge you carry. Let them go! If there are people you aren’t on good terms with, offer them sincere prayers and wish them the best (whether you tell them or not). Write anything you’d like to release on little pieces of paper and safely burn them, outside or toss them into a roaring fireplace, releasing any negativity into the atmosphere. Start the New Year with a clean slate—empowered by our past and determined to move forward and make sure our best days are ahead of us, waiting for us to claim and enjoy them! Cheers everyone! Safe and happy celebrating tonight and a great 2018! One more thing— no 2018 is complete without ordering a copy of my book, #therestaurantdiet! Thanks and God Bless!

From the book:

“People fail at dieting not because they are failures—they fail because the diet plans they follow are flawed.”
—Fred Bollaci

Not that along ago, Fred Bollaci weighed close to 330 pounds. Over a one-year period, he lost 150 pounds following a comprehensive diet and lifestyle plan that he had carefully designed and developed in conjunction with his doctor, nutritionist, and psychologist. You might be wondering: what kind of starvation diet was he on to accomplish such a miraculous feat?

The answer: none. He didn’t deprive himself of anything as he lost weight and kept it off. In fact, Fred enjoyed eating more than ever as he shed pounds doing what he loves: dining out.

In “The Restaurant Diet,” Fred shares his secrets on how to dine out and lose weight. You’ll learn how to take back some of the control you have been conceding every time you sit down at a restaurant and struggle to select waist-friendly items from the menu.
