To promote the release of their new health & diet book, Dear God, Let Me Lose Fat. Amen, husband-wife writing team health scientist Dr. J.R. Paine and atomic physicist Dr. Gupta are touring the blogosphere this month. Their little book (60 pages) takes an original, fresh approach to dieting and offers some innovative solutions. Here to talk about the book is Dr. Paine. In this interview, he discusses the failure of most diet books today and what makes his system different and effective.
Thanks for this interview, Dr. Paine. Why don’t you begin by telling us a little about yourself?
We are health scientists, nuclear scientists, avid researchers, political leaders, educators, humanitarians and world travelers. We set sail for new horizons in search of answers to twenty-five (25) universal questions about the why, wherefore, how, if and when of life, birth, death, learning, science, medicine, health, weight, disease, war, peace, love, hate, greed, good, evil, eternal youth, premature aging, humanity, heaven, purgatory, earth, the cosmos and most importantly God.
With an insatiable appetite for knowledge and an abundance of intellectual curiosity, we traveled to and lived in far away lands, gathering knowledge and enough fame and fortune to open many doors. Between the two co-authors (man and wife) of the Dear God, Let Me Lose Fat, Amen book, we explored every frontier including but limited to international recognition as one of the world’s greatest nuclear scientists, winning the nomination for the Nobel Prize in Physics, the U. S. Congress, running for the U.S. Senate, being a guest at The White House, educating our children at Yale, Harvard, Princeton and Massachusetts Institute of Technology. We published numerous scientific research papers in major scientific journals, wrote scientific books, drafted peace plans for Vietnam and every other trouble spot on earth. We created the first generation of fast delivery, fast facts memo to me virtual info experts on health and obesity. But, what we value most is the opportunity to converse, communicate and exchange ideas with some of the great minds of the 20th century – people like Einstein, Kissinger, George H. W. Bush, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, George Romney, Moshe Dayan, Nehru, Indira Gandhi, King Hussein ibn Talal of Jordan, His Holiness Pope John Paul II and too many others to list here.
Tell us about your book, Dear God, Let Me Lose Fat. Amen.
Thirty million diets, diet companies, books, weight loss articles, magazines, websites plus trillions of words and billions of pages to end the obesity nightmare nationally and globally have done what? Regretfully, all this output only helped in turning a trickle of obesity in 1900 into a tsunami of obesity in 2008. Why? The authors discovered that the answer is misunderstood science and stubborn insistence by the “experts” that the mouth that created the obesity pandemic problem is also the solution. The Laws of Nature say no – that is not the way humans are designed and programmed.
It became obvious to the authors that few dieters can spare the time to read 200-300 page books or possess extensive enough knowledge to pick out useful and relevant health and weight loss information. Few dieters can spare the time to read and re-read through lengthy articles, write down or memorize the helpful portions of books, articles, websites, lectures, seminars or look at digital videos 12 times a day or listen to audio tapes before the brain responds to that addictive, sudden craving sos biosignal.
We decided to devote long hours to sift through the millions of pages of research results published by teams of researchers at over 200 major universities worldwide (Harvard, Yale, University of California at Los Angeles, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Princeton, Oxford and others), famous health and weight loss clinics and the enormous supply of health and weight loss data published for the public good by our government agencies such as the Office of the U.S. Surgeon General, Department of Health and Human Services, , Center for Disease Control, National Institute of Health, Federal Drug Administration and hundreds of public health private agencies, world health organizations to name just a few.
We then had a bright, innovative idea of how to simplify science, take the scare out of the words “Laws of Nature and Physics“, condense and compress the really relevant nuggets of health and weight loss education into 150 “24/7 MEMO TO ME EZ2SLIM® PINUPS”, make the first 40 available in Dear God, Let Me Lose Fat, Amen and another 40 in each follow-up book until all 150 were available to the people.
They are in full color, ready to be clipped, framed and displayed on the refrigerator door with a magnetic clip, on the kitchen counters, atop the TV set, on the dinner table, bedside table, den, office desk or wherever your daily faux hunger and cravings cells are likely to throw a tantrum and demand fried, fatty, salty, sugary, carbonated and other “welcome disease” kill-calorie foods.
Did your book require a lot of research?
Dear God. Let Me Lose Fat, Amen is based on 145,000 hours of grueling research.
What was your goal when writing this book?
To introduce America to the 21st -century solution to obesity, overweight and poor health; to at least slow the rate of obesity-related deaths. Currently, one American is dying every 2 minutes from obesity-related diseases. First Lady Laura Bush said on February 2, 2008 that one American is dying every minute from heart disease. Heart disease is rampant among the obese/overweight. Our goal is to do everything in our power to stop obesity from kidnapping our kids. Right now, statistics show that 33% of our kids in America are obese/overweight.
Our goal is to trumpet the indisputable fact that the brain cannot protect the body from gaining access fat when, for instance, the eyes see 30-second fast food commercials designed to compel the brain to order the mouth to eat the fatty foods. Our Memo To Me EZ2SLIM® Pinups (Patent Pending) turn off the urgent signals from the cravings cells. For more than five decades, humans have had 100% easy access to fast foods but zero, zip access to fast knowledge.
Who is your target audience?
Anyone who owns and lives in a human body!
What will the reader learn after reading your book?
Readers will learn that their body is a scientific creation. It is governed by
The Laws of Nature as is everything else in the Universe. They will have the benefit of having knowledge that great minds have always had and always known. They will get a profound insight into life and know what giants like Einstein and Schweitzer knew about the secrets of life, health and weight. Nobel Prize winner Albert Schweitzer said “Every patient carries her or his own doctor inside.” Nobel Prize winner Albert Einstein said, “Nature is the only trusted therapist”.
As a writer, what scares you the most?
That we will not have enough write to write all the books before we are summoned to occupy our chair in God’s waiting room!
When writing, what themes do you feel passionate about?
We are passionate about themes that help the entire human race, not a group, not a segment, not a race, not a single nation. Themes like health, war and peace, climate control, laws of nature, obesity and the like.
Are you a disciplined writer?
If you love writing, no discipline is required. If you do not love writing, no discipline is possible. This question reminds us of the man who asked a wise man, “Can you give me proof that God exists?” The wise man replied, “For those who believe in God, no proof is necessary and for those who do not believe in God, no proof is possible.”
What is your opinion about critique groups? What words of advice would you offer a novice writer who is joining one? Do you think the wrong critique group can ‘crush’ a fledgling writer?
It totally depends on the group. Sincere and constructive criticism is far more valuable than polite praise.
What is the best writing advice you’ve ever received?
From legendary classical author Mark Twain who, after writing a lengthy letter to a friend wrote in a P.S., “Sorry, for the long letter. If I had more time, I could have written a shorter letter.” Lesson: don’t write lengthy books. Keep your books and your body slim!
Do you have a website/blog where readers may learn more about you and your work?
Readers may visit our blog at DearGodDiet where they will routinely find delicious nuggets of easy to use hot tips, instant, easy to digest knowledge to stop their hunger and cravings juggernaut. They will find a lively discussion on “Let’s talk about cravings”. They will have an opportunity to e-mail their specific cravings issue to Dr. Paine. D.Sc. and learn the root cause of that persistent craving call – mostly at about the same time every day!
Do you have another book on the works? Would you like to tell readers about your current or future projects?
Yes. Another book, Health Super Super Spa In A Book, with 40 plus 24/7 fast knowledge Healthmercials will be available on Amazon.com in 8-10 weeks. In this book, dieters are asked to think, think before they overeat. Dieters are asked to give up the “take my life, not my food” mindset and to make health a hobby, a habit and not a daily hassle. We all know that the alternative to health is disease. This book tells readers that fast foods are health torpedoes that enter the body with disease-causing calories, loaded with acid/ash, fat, refined sugars, salt, cholesterol etc.
