Have you ever wanted to start a diet but pushed it off to “starting on Monday”? While some people think it is a sign of procrastination, experts say you might be more likely to achieve a goal if you start on a Monday. With 42% of Americans saying they gained weight during the pandemic, according to a Healthline article, many are looking for a way to drop those pandemic pounds and might need that Monday motivation! Dian Griesel, Ph.D, author of TurboCharged: The Silver Disobedience Edition, a health book that outlines eight-steps to shed fat, is eager to help. “Three days. That is all it will take to start your body and spirit racing toward a lifetime of lean. Within 10 days or less, you will be convinced that the TurboCharged lifestyle is for you.” The Monday start-date could be beneficial as it will give you time to order your copy of TurboCharged, as Dian recommends you read the book from start to finish to understand the entire plan before starting to incorporate any of its suggestions. Below are three tips Dian shares with readers who want to be in better shape and enjoy a healthier lifestyle.


We are a fat nation. Yet we have more gyms, more diet foods, and more diet books than any other country? Why? For starters we are taught to follow the Standard American Diet, which is far from an ideal diet. It is made up of highly refined and processed food products, which are excessively high in calories, fat, sugar, and salt. There is also so much conflicting nutrition-based information. “Chances are you think you need to have a big breakfast to start the day and meals should be balanced with a protein, carbohydrate, and a fat,” says Griesel. “Both are myths and could be preventing you from getting lean.” It is important to forget everything you have previously been told about dieting when wanting to get TurboCharged.

Walking Wonders

“Moving” doesn’t only mean spending 30-90 minutes at the gym. In fact, that could actually be hurting your weight-loss goals. The best kind of movement is walking. According to Griesel, “Our legs and butt muscles drive our metabolism and walking is vitally important to the resurgence of these muscles. Walking will move your metabolism into TurboCharged mode as energy is taken from body fat while your leg and butt muscles strengthen – further accelerating your fat burning metabolism.” Walking is easy in that it requires nothing but a good pair of footwear. You can do it anywhere and with anyone. Try to walk an extra 30 minutes every day.

Get moving!

When to Water

 It is no secret that water is beneficial to your health but do you know when to drink it? “We often confuse thirst and hunger, so always reach for a big glass of water before you eat anything,” says Griesel. “It is also important to drink water when you wake up in the morning as you are dehydrated and dehydration triggers hunger as a warning signal.”

So, what are you waiting for? Place your order for a  copy of TurboCharged and know that you are only eight-steps away from kicking those pandemic pounds!
