Do you struggle as a weight loss coach, dietician or personal trainer with:

👎 Not standing out in this extremely overcrowded and competitive market?

👎 Only getting paid for your time (which limits your earnings big time)?

👎 Charging low prices for your outstanding services?

Just imagine how it would be to: 

👑 Instantly be seen as an EXPERT by clients, the general public, colleagues and the media

💵 Attract high-end clients because services become much more valuable and people will be excited to pay the higher prices you offer

⏳Having a passive income and not having to trade all of your valuable time for money

👪 Having much more free time to do the things you want and live your life instead of researching & creating content

Applied Psychologist, former-fat kid & retired weight loss coach.

I know how frustrating it can be to market yourself in the oversaturated and extremely competitive weight loss field.

Not to mention how much time and effort it costs time and time again to deliver expert-level-quality information to your followers and clients (click here if you want to find out why I stopped my coaching) 

I also know how painful it is for your clients and customers to be overweight and the immense struggle it can be to lose weight. How do I know that? I lived it… check out the pictures and my story.

My name is Erik Hans and my weight loss story started when I weighed 239 lbs at the tender age of sixteen…

I ONLY want happy customers

You can read both books below so you can decide if you want your cover design and name on them.

Not one... but TWO books with your name on it

A Quick & Easy read

“The Blueprint” has 151 small pages and can be read within 90 minutes. It gives the client a quick and easy blueprint of how to lose weight with a flexible dieting approach.

Scientific research shows that flexible dieting is superior to rigid diets. One study found that individuals who engage in rigid dieting strategies reported symptoms of an eating disorder, mood disturbances, and excessive concern with body size/shape.

In contrast…

flexible dieting strategies were not highly associated with BMI, eating disorder symptoms, mood disturbances, or concerns with body size [1].

Another study showed that a more rigid attitude towards dieting resulted in worse weight loss maintenance and well-being. It also increased psychological distress [2].

However, a more flexible attitude toward weight loss resulted in the opposite.

And another study linked flexible dieting to the absence of overeating, lower body mass and lower levels of depression and anxiety [3].

One study also found that increasing flexibility could lead to better weight loss results for overweight and obese older women [4].

Furthermore, there is conclusive evidence that restricting certain foods from your diet can have the adverse effects of causing cravings for the foods you have cut out [5-8].

Also, in one study cutting out bread resulted in three times as many dropouts [9].

Studies also found that one of the reasons why dieters can’t maintain their new weight is because they stop following the ‘rules’ [10].

You’ve probably heard of the saying; “Rules are meant to be broken.” Well, this certainly seems to apply to dieting and weight loss.

Restriction can cause intensified feelings of value, desire and can spark curiosity [11-25]. Simply said, we want what we can’t have. It’s human nature.

So rigidity can cause an ironic rebound-effect which is caused by forbidding certain foods, higher calorie days or slip-ups of any kind. Flexibility is associated with more commitment to a goal and is one of the traits of successful long-term weight loss [26].

However, one study showed that both the rigid diet group and the flexible diet group had similar weight loss results [27]. This reminds us of the fact that everything doesn’t always apply to everyone. Yes, a more flexible approach seems to have clear advantages for most people but doesn’t have to mean it’s the right choice for you.

And remember, a little rigidity is needed. Otherwise, you give in to every craving, which isn’t really a winning strategy. The most important thing is that you should be able to choose the best approach for you. Which rules and restrictions work best for you and which don’t.

A method that gives you the right amount of freedom and control that you need to lose weight. Where you can construct a diet/lifestyle that caters to your personality, preferences, strengths, weaknesses, goals and needs.

The research seems to agree with this. In one study, researchers found that adherence to the Mediterranean diet was highest among those whose standard diet was most similar in composition to the Mediterranean diet [28].

Another study found adherence to one of four diets was better when the participants were eating a diet that reflected the macro composition of their normal diet [29].

Just to be clear, if a diet consists out of high-processed crap this advice doesn’t apply of course.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why sell rights and not sell the book myself?

During my study of Applied Psychology, I always did the work that others hated to do, desk research. And I loved it! I learned that I like to work in the background. Let others stand in the spotlight, it’s not my thing. After finishing my book people asked me to coach them.

I slowly discovered that both coaching and the marketing that was involved weren’t my thing. Don’t get me wrong, I’m very suited to coach people and I gained a lot of useful experience, but it doesn’t get my juice pumping like researching and writing.

And although I like the psychology and theory behind marketing, I despise practicing it and being in the foreground, posting on social media or a blog. Which isn’t very beneficial if you want to succeed in the coaching business.

I just assumed I had to be a coach because… well… that’s what you do after writing a badass book and dieters are asking to be their coach. But after a while, my motivation level plummeted. I asked myself what was wrong with me…

The people whom I coached said that my method was the easiest way to lose weight they had ever experienced. The people who read my book were stunned by the eye-opening information. It felt like I had gold in my hands but couldn’t do anything with it.

After a lot of self-reflection, it occurred to me that I didn’t have to be a coach. I can just be a writer. I can sell or share the rights to my book or make other weight loss professionals my co-author. I don’t care about getting credits for my writing. That’s not what I’m about. That’s not important to me. What is important to me are the following:

  • Focus mostly on what I enjoy the most and do best… researching and writing.
  • Reach as many struggling dieters as I can and make their weight loss journey as fast, easy and sustainable as humanly possible

This collaboration can give us both what we want. I achieve the aforementioned goals and you will instantly be seen as an expert by clients, the general public, colleagues and media. People will be excited to pay the higher prices you offer because your services seems much more valuable now.

Why should I buy from you and not write my own book?

Well, to be honest, it would be amazing if you would write your own book. And although it’s extremely frustrating at times,  it can also be very fulfilling .

❌ TIME: Writing a book is a significant commitment. It requires months of sitting behind a laptop, researching, writing, re-writing, editing, and finally getting a quality manuscript.

❌ SKILLS: Also, not everyone is equipped to write a stellar book. Everybody has different skills and as coincidence would have it, writing and researching are mine (at least on the subjects of weight loss, muscle building and psychology).

❌ COSTS: Reedsy calculated that it costs authors between $500 and $4,800 to publish a book, depending on the quality.

For a non-fiction work of 80,000 words like this (not counting the 1301 references), copy editing and proofreading already cost around $2,048. Then you still need a book cover and interior design. Which on average costs $730 and $650 when you do it separately and $1,039 when done together.

Hiring a beginning ghostwriter can cost you anywhere between $2,000 and $9,000 per book. If it’s a more experienced ghostwriter, it’ll be around the $30,000 to $60,000 per book. With bestseller ghostwriters, you’re looking at six-figure fees. 

In short… most people don’t have the time, skills or money to write their own book. It’s much easier and profitable to team up with a collaborator like me to get the in-demand book you need to instantly skyrocket your career more than you have ever imagined.

Can’t I just outsource the writing to AI??

Sure, you could. But the results will mostly be… well… lackluster.

Cognitive psychologist, psycholinguist, popular science author, and public intellectual, Steven Pinker said the following: “For 25 years I’ve begun my introductory psychology course by showing how our best artificial intelligence still can’t duplicate ordinary common sense. This year I was terrified that that part of the lecture would be obsolete. … But I needn’t have worried.”

He also mentioned that, at least so far, a lot of ChatGPT output is easy to unmask because it mashes up quotations and references that don’t exist.

Can’t connect the dots: Many experts seem to agree on this. Wordable CEO and Founder & CEO of Codeless, Brad Smith says that AI can only take a mediocre pass at factual, information-based content. But even then it struggles to actually understand anything it’s saying. It is merely taking what’s already out there on certain topics and then playing a Robocop version of the word game Mad Libs,” he explains.

He also makes the point that AI can’t connect the dots because knowledge of a few topics are completely isolated from each other.

No emotion, no connection: Annie Brown, founder of Lips, said the following: “And AI can’t do emotion, such as style, jargon, inside jokes, meta-references, anecdotes, and storytelling. “All the things that get someone to stop dead in their tracks, take notice of what they’re reading, and actually want to continue reading the full thing.

At the end of the day, people are still emotional human beings, hardwired via their centuries-old lizard brains to use feelings to convince themself of logical decisions, and not vice-versa.”

Fact-checking & Outdated information: Another problem is that AI doesn’t check facts and can include outdated information. Plus, AI is notorious for making stuff up. And although AI tools can write grammatically correct sentences, don’t expect well-organized, articulate drafts.

Most pieces will contain confusing, incoherent paragraphs. AI only synthesizes data and follows basic grammar rules; it can’t string together different pieces of information in the most logical manner.

Conclusion

So is AI the way to go? If you’re happy with mediocre work and have a lot of time to correct AI’s mistakes, it might be something to consider.

For truly breathtaking work so that everyone will see you as the go-to-expert on weight loss? Not so much.

Is this legal and ethical??

It’s a little-known fact that more than half of books on Amazon and in bookstores were written by ghostwriters. Professional writers often create the book, then a famous person puts their name on it as the author. It’s called white labeling and it is used with many products you use and know.

It’s called white labeling and it’s very popular in every industry.
