Get My Book "Actual Weight Loss" today for Just $4.99 and Discover Why 90% of Weight Loss Programs Don’t Work in the Long Term and Try this Simple Strategy for Avoiding Rebound Weight Gain

Dr. Mohammed Alo D.O.

AOA Board of Internal Medicine (Cardiology), IL, IN, MI, OH State Medical License, Professor of Cardiovascular Medicine
Midwestern University &
Ohio University
After spending the past 20 years in the medical profession, known by my clients as “The Weight Loss Doctor”, I’ve made an alarming discovery:

90% of “Weight Loss Programs” don’t work.

Sure, they might help you to lose weight in the short-term – and most are very good at that.

...But the problem is, very few actually help people keep the weight off for the long-term.

Whether it’s:
  • High-fat, Low Carb… 
  • Raw/Organic Diets…
  • ​Low-Sugar Plans… 
  • Endless Cardio or HIIT Workouts… 
  • Or a host of fad diets or workout regimens… 
…Why is it that over 95% of people following those diets simply regain the weight they lost, just 3 years after losing it?
I can attest that this works. I’ve lost 40 pounds and have kept it off for 7 months without any medicine.

– Christian Boyer

For less than you would spend on a dinner for yourself, you can be on your way to a better version of yourself.

– Ric Jarelle

My metrics are so much better. I sleep better. My relationship with food is better. It truly is a no gimmick, straight forward truth about nutrition. I'm so grateful for this book.

– Johnny Cearley

“I Bust A Gut In The Gym. I Follow The Workout Routines To A Tee. I Even ‘Eat Clean’ 90% of the Time...Yet I Have Nothing To Show For It! What Gives?”
You might think this isn’t so bad, but it was the heaviest I’d ever been despite my athletic background in high school. Even after all my hard work, I was devastated to find that NONE of it seemed to be paying off…
I was looking at a picture I’d just taken with my staff, and was horrified by what I saw.

“What? That can’t be ME?”

I thought I was this healthy guy in his 30s – someone who ate pretty well, and even played basketball and soccer a couple times each week.

And yet the man in the photo staring back at me was teetering on the line between “Overweight” and “Obese”.

…And I was supposed to be the “Weight Loss Doctor”!

How could it be that ME – the cardiologist telling people how to lose weight – had lost to weight loss?

The reason is that I was like so many people when it came to my health…
Even as a Health Professional, I’d bought into the idea of using whatever new fad diets promised rapid results through some overly complicated, “secret” system.
I tried the Atkins diet first.

Then the South Beach Diet.

Then the Sugarbusters diet.

Then even the Keto diet.

Over the years, I tried nearly every diet there was.

And yet no matter what diet I tried, the exact same thing would happen…
The Diet Would Work Great at First… But I Would Inevitably Put the Weight Back On Again After a Few Months

How did this become such a predictable pattern on my weight loss journey?

More importantly: What was keeping me stuck in this frustrating cycle of Lose/Regain every time?

It wasn’t until a few years later, after working with a coach and finding a surprisingly simple approach to weight loss that finally worked for me, that I was able to look back and realize the major mistakes I was making.
Since then, I’ve completely changed the way I approach the idea of Health and Fitness, and it has had a huge impact on my ability to not just simply lose the weight, but to keep it off for good.

It’s also had a dramatic impact on the approach I teach my patients as well…

In fact, no matter who my patient is or whatever weight loss obstacles they’ve experienced in the past, I first check to see if they’re making any of the 3 most damaging weight loss mistakes.

Because I’ve found that if they’re committing even just one of these “deadly sins” of weight loss, it can keep them trapped in the endless loop of Weight Loss/Weight Gain for years…
At the Alo Home Gym with my daughter! I believe establishing good habits from an early age is crucial to creating long-term habits and behaviors.

Mistake #1: Buying into Fitness Programs That Prioritize “Marketing” over “Health”

Unfortunately, most fad diets, fitness plans, or workout routines are more style than substance these days.

The people who share these approaches will claim to have some new “secret” way to help you lose weight, complete with Instagram-worthy workout routines and fancy new meal prep recipes.

They’ll get you to think that Health & Fitness is some complicated equation that you can only master if you have just the right formula.

(Usually, they’re the ones claiming to hold this secret formula. Go figure…)
It’s Usually About 10% “Good Advice”...And 90% Overhyped Marketing Baloney.
Weight loss can be a challenging journey, for sure…

But the actual science-backed way of losing weight (and keeping it off) is not as complicated as most fitness gurus will lead you to believe it is.

And if you’ve been feeling that YOU are the problem for not getting results that stick, let me tell you something you may need to hear:
Do NOT Blame Yourself for This. This is NOT your fault.
It’s not your fault that you’ve been led to believe that in order to lose weight you need to:
  • Follow restrictive diets…
  • Practice punishing workout routines…
  • ​Let go of foods you love… 
  • Avoid “bad” foods and “eat clean”...
…Or any other malarkey that makes it seem like it’s about anything other than simply understanding the basic principles of weight loss.

But trying to follow overcomplicated fitness programs isn’t the only mistake you might be making. 

In fact, mistake #2 is something that can have some of the most damaging effects…

Mistake #2: Believing Cardio is the Answer

How does that make sense?

How can it be that a board-certified cardiologist, with over 20 years of experience in the profession, is telling you cardio is NOT the solution to weight loss?

The reason is simple:
Most people treat cardio as some “magic pill” that will automatically get them fit, lean, and healthy.
Whether it’s:
  • Expensive Spinning Classes…
  • Impossible High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) Routines...
  • ​Exhausting Stair Climber Workouts… 
  • Weekly 5k Runs That Wreak Havoc on Your Knees…
  • Or Setting the Treadmill to the “Mount Everest” Incline Level...
None of it works if you don’t have the basic foundations for weight loss in place. More on that in a second.
The Truth Is, Cardio Can Be An Effective Tool To Help You Lose Weight…But It’s No Silver Bullet For Getting Fit.
Here’s the kicker, too:

In some cases, too much cardio can actually be dangerous!

In fact, excessive cardio has been shown to cause your heart muscles to remodel and your coronary arteries to harden faster than expected. (O’ Keefe, “Potential Adverse Cardiovascular Effects From Excessive Endurance Exercise”, Mayo Clinic Proceedings, June 2012)

So if cardio isn’t the answer, and neither are new trendy fitness programs, what is?

Well, in just a moment, I’ll be sharing my personal, science-backed Framework for achieving safe, easy, and lasting weight loss (without having to give up the foods you love)...

But first, I want to cover the third and final mistake most people make on their weight loss journey.

This one is perhaps the most damaging because it’s literally the thing that keeps them on the Weight Loss/Weight Gain rollercoaster year after year…

Mistake #3: Chasing Short-Term Solutions

Think about most of the fitness programs you see…

Notice how the most popular ones always seem to help you “get shredded” or “tone up” in just 30, 60, or 90 days?

Well…did you ever think about what happens after those 90 days?

(The chances are, you’ve probably even experienced it yourself!)

Again, research shows that after just 3 years of losing weight, a whopping 95% of people end up regaining the weight they lost.

But here’s another alarming footnote about that figure:
33-66% Of Those People End Up Heavier Than When They Started!
But hey, that’s what many of these Fitness Gurus in the industry are banking on (figuratively and literally).

They make you replace all the foods you love with meals that taste like cardboard, and put you through the ringer with punishing workout routines that leave you out of action for days…

And they do this all in the hope that, by the end of the 90 days, you'll have dropped the weight and achieved that trimmed physique.

And it works.

The trouble is, the restrictive diet, killer workout routines, and confusing portion control protocols start catching up with you…

Eventually, you start to fall off the wagon.

Then, just as quickly as you lost the weight, you seem to put it back on again.
But Again – The Problem Isn’t With YOU…
The problem was the fact that your results were built upon an unsustainable weight loss method that simply wasn’t built for people like you with a demanding career, a busy home life, friends, family, hobbies – all requiring your constant attention and energy.

(And most times, these methods are barely backed by any scientific basis either…)

So if fad diets, endless cardio, and flash-in-the-pan fitness programs aren’t the key to lasting weight loss, what is?

Well, let me tell you, first and foremost…

You do NOT need the latest “revolutionary” diet or some fancy Instagram Workout Routine.
You need an approach that’s simple, sustainable and lasting.
Because if you’re only going to lose the weight to regain it a couple of months later…what's the point?
What You Need is an Approach That Works With Your Body's Natural Tendencies, Behaviors, And Cravings – Rather Than Against Them.
I’d like to share with you my super simple, science-backed approach to weight loss that I hope will be the LAST “Weight Loss System” you’ll ever need…

What Makes The Actual Weight Loss Framework Different Than Any Other Method?

Actual Weight Loss distills everything I’ve learned from being a practicing cardiologist, as well as being a certified personal trainer…

…plus all the hours and thousands of dollars of education and training I invested through my own weight loss journey… 

…along with all the wisdom that comes from having helped literally thousands of people lose and maintain a healthy weight while keeping a good relationship with food over the past 20 years.

Heck – it’s pretty much been my entire life since I started lecturing at medical conferences in 2003, teaching other physicians how to help their patients lose weight!

(Well…they do call me “The Doctor’s Doctor!”)

I’ve not only come across many of the fad diets you’ve seen in the weight loss industry…

I’ve tried many of them myself!

And let me tell you, there has been no other factor that has had the biggest lasting effect on my own weight loss journey – as well as those of my clients – than my research-backed system.

The Actual Weight Loss Framework takes a new approach to an age-old, proven method of weight loss, and updates it for the 21st century to account for…
  • Busy schedules…
  • Complex health conditions…
  • The need to navigate picky eaters in the family…
  • Information overload about what to eat and when
  • Overwhelming and expensive choices at the grocery store…
  • ​And the fact that unhealthy food seems to be everywhere (don’t worry – I’ll show you that you CAN actually eat it and still lose weight!)

This book is my legacy. 

I have patients cry in my exam rooms telling me no one ever sat down with them and told them they need to lose weight. I have other patients in tears because I’m the only physician that actually sat down with them and told them a way to lose weight that didn’t sound crazy... 

I went on this journey multiple times before finding the right solutions. 

I’ve spoken all across the country for the last 20 years. I’ve been part of many groups and seen countless people find results and peace that lasted! 

It’s incredibly rewarding. 

It’s also the reason I post my lectures on YouTube. I want others to learn long after I’m gone; to see my sincerity, my mannerisms. To know the Dr. Mohammed Alo who is passionate about healthy weight loss and long-term health results. 

I have spent my entire adult life learning and teaching this topic. I don’t want to ever stop!

And through this book, I hope I can finally end the frustrating Lose/Regain cycle that can seem so hard to escape from.

Questions You Still Might Be Asking…

I’ve tried [insert any diet / fitness program here] and it didn’t work for me. How is your program different?
Because it’s not a program. Programs have start and end dates. My approach is chiefly based on sustainability. “Can you do this for the next 10…15… even 50 years?” << That is the question I use with every single patient.
I don’t have a lot of extra time in my day. Can this still work for me?
Absolutely! This approach is designed to work with busy schedules, rather than against them.
I’m diabetic / pregnant / have PCOS / am over 60. Does your program have modifications for me?
It absolutely does. There is even a full bonus I call “special populations” with considerations for each of these sub-groups. There is a place for you here.
Do I have to purchase specific supplements / foods?
No. In fact, I'll do you one better: I don't even want you to cut out your favorite foods!
How can I lose weight without giving up foods I love? Is this a gimmick?
Definitely not a gimmick. Most programs work by limiting the amount of calories you consume each day, and cutting out your favorite not-so-healthy foods is generally a part of that practice. That is *not* the approach I take with my patients. I give an in-depth explanation in Chapter 5.
Does this program require a specific meal plan and workout regime?
No. You will not be required to eat certain meals at specific times or adhere to a strict workout routine. And it’s actually by NOT restricting you that the results you get will last longer than any workout program or diet you’ve tried before.
What if I buy the book, try it out, and your method still doesn’t work for me?
I would genuinely be shocked if that were the case. However, I have a 30-day 100% money-back guarantee. No questions asked. Simply send me an email.
I love what you’re saying, but I don’t have time to read your book. How can I still get the results?
Never fear, with the purchase of your digital book, you will also receive access to my audiobook. It’s 3 hours in length, so you can listen to this as you commute to and from work, errands, etc. You’ll be surprised how quickly the time goes!
How can I follow workout instructions from a book?
Video demonstrations of recommended workout strategies are included as a free bonus when you purchase a digital copy of the book. No confusing pictographs here!
How much weight can I actually lose with your book?
You can lose enough weight to maintain a healthy BMI for your height, age, and gender. It *is* possible! And I can’t wait to show you how.

Let Me Leave You With Just One Final Question…

How much would it cost you to hire… 

A Cardiologist?

You’re looking at $500/hr – at least.

Most people with heart concerns see their Cardiologist anywhere from once per quarter to once per week. 

But let’s say you’re a busy person, so you’re only able to do the once-per-quarter commitment: 

$500/hr x 4 quarters/year = $2000 a year to see a cardiologist.

Now, you’ll also need some nutrition or diet help.

Here, you can go for either:

A) Nutritionist: $1000/month; OR…
B) Registered Dietician: $150/hr

In scenario A, a nutritionist can help you implement a monthly meal plan, make tweaks and adjustments to your diet depending on your goal, etc. 

So $1000/month x 12 months a year = $12,000 a year for a nutritionist.


You can try and get away with seeing a dietician once a month. 

They’ll give you less specific direction on meals and implementation while providing lots of great information and education. 

$150/hr once a month x 12 months = $1,800 a year for a dietician. 

Last, but not least, you’ll need help with physical fitness too. 

Personal Trainer: $50-$150/hr

You generally see a personal trainer 2-3 times per week for the first 6 weeks, and then once a week after that. 

Seeing the cheapest personal trainer, for as little as possible, things would look like… 

$50/hr x 2 sessions a week x 6 weeks = $600 for the first 6 weeks of a personal trainer
$50/hr x 1 session a week x 46 remaining weeks in the year = $2,300 for the remainder of the year…

Which is a total of $2,900 for a year of personal training.

Add that all together, and even at the most conservative estimate, it would cost you $6,700 for one year of weight loss training and individualized help. 

What I’m hoping to give you on this page is the legacy book of a practicing Cardiologist, who is also a certified personal trainer with thousands of hours studying medical nutrition studies…

All for just $4.99. 

(And yes! That’s not a misprint!) 

Learn the same information. 

Implement a life-changing physical transformation.
And save $6,695.01 compared to the typical cost of getting this transformation using any other resources.

Just A Reminder . . . 
Here's Everything You'll Get For $4.99

When you purchase the Actual Weight Loss book, you’ll learn everything you need to know about losing weight and keeping it off, including:
