How can there be skinny people with Type 2 Diabetes (or who develop pre-diabetes symptoms), high triglycerides, high cholesterol and more when those conditions are all so heavily linked with obesity? AND, how can there be morbidly obese individuals who have NONE of these problems? Genetics definitely doesn’t explain it all.

EET Fitness has proven with diabetics and other blood markers that all forms of stress play a role no matter what your current weight, and that EET’s Timing Guidelines can deal with all forms of stress.

Most weight-loss and fitness plans do all they can to discourage stress eating. They might as well say, “Feel free to yo-yo diet whenever you feel stress.” I found that approach extremely stressful. So when I get really stressed (which is often these days), I give my body exactly what it’s asking for and embrace stress eating. It’s always “on” my EET plan!
How have I made stress eating with EET a big part of my five year success story? It only took one simple adjustment from Yo-Yo Jon’s guilt-ridden stress eating. I time it. Here’s how:
