Overview

Every member of the Dean family was overweight and out of shape. Within twelve months, Tony Dean, his parents, and his five brothers and sisters had lost more than 500 pounds. And they did it without pills, special foods, counting points, or buying any special equipment. They had all tried to lose weight before, but despite the occasional small success, the weight loss was always temporary. So how did this ordinary family manage to overcome a lifetime of weight problems to achieve such remarkable results?

They did it together following the F.A.S.T. (Families Always Succeed Together) diet, a program Tony created that encouraged everyone to eat better, exercise more, and hold themselves accountable for maintaining their individual health while encouraging others in the family to stick to their own diet and exercise regimen. And it worked. The Deans are in the best shape of their lives, slimmer and healthier than ever before–and they plan to stay that way.

In The F.A.S.T. Diet, Tony Dean shows you how to create your own team–of friends, coworkers, or anyone interested in losing weight–and harness the power of teamwork and accountability to help you succeed. The F.A.S.T. Diet will show you how to:

• Eat the foods you want and still lose weight
• Host weekly weigh-ins to maximize your loss potential
• Motivate yourself to go to the gym even when you don’t want to
• Use the support of your team to get you through the tough days

In just one year, the Deans transformed their health and their future. In The F.A.S.T. Diet, Tony shares everything they learned and everything you will need to transform your life, once and for all!

We did it. You can, too!
