Chris Powell Transformation Specialist ‘Choose to Lose’

Originally published on

Chris Powell is the fitness trainer on ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition and promises that his Carb-Cycle Solution program is a “no-nonsense practical approach [that] simplifies nutrition to make it fast, easy and fun.” Dieters are advised to alternate between high-carb days and low-carb days to maximize weight-loss and avoid plateaus. And exercise, he says, will quicken the pace. With the same high-energy spirit that drive the extreme makeovers, Powell predicts stunning success to the diligent, but cautions would-be followers to avoid the “lottery syndrome”: the belief that losing weight, like winning the jackpot, will instantly solve all of their problems.
