On the Couch with Dr. Dorree Lynn Features Guests, Call-Ins as Emmy-Nominated Relationship Expert Brings her Unique Style to Jacksonville’s Airwaves!

Jacksonville, Fla. (Sept. 3, 2013) Popular psycho-therapist and life coach Dr. Dorree Lynn, who has provided guidance and wisdom on intimacy, relationships and sexuality for the last 30 years, will welcome other expert guests and offer advice to listeners on her new show On the Couch with Dr. Dorree Lynn at 2:30 p.m. every Saturday on WBOB-AM beginning Saturday, Oct. 5.

Matt Mercer Host Of Lose Weight Radio

Matt Mercer

Lose Weight Radio
Sundays 8P – 9P
Website:
www.LoseWeightRadio.com
E-mail: Show@LoseWeightRadio.com
Call the Lose Weight Radio office: 1-800-513-7897, Ext. 801.

Find out why Matt Mercer says: “If you’ll eat like no one else today… you can look & feel like no one else tomorrow!”  

Imagine being 80-plus pounds overweight, level 2 – severe obese with a body mass index over 35. Consider the level of exhaustion from lugging around the equivalent of 16 five-pound bags of sugar in extra weight! Like many listeners, Matt had a past in which he was skinny. But once he entered his mid-20′s, he began to slowly add weight, year after year until he peaked in his early 40′s at almost 260 pounds! Fat, tired, & sluggish had become his “normal.” Private personal trainers, gym workouts, popular “diet plans”, and buying “diet” food over the Internet helped but never got him below 230 pounds.  

Skinny friends urged, “Just eat in moderation,” but that didn’t work either. Matt reasoned that if a fast food/junk food addict could start losing weight by simply deciding to  “eat moderately,” he probably wouldn’t be overweight in the first place! By following the advice de jour, he realized he had been approaching weight loss from the wrong direction.  

Matt now says, “If you’re obese, don’t try to start your weight loss journey by joining a gym and adopting unrealistic ‘moderation’ resolutions. Instead, start with following the powerful but simple Lose Weight Baby Steps; manage the C-R-A-V-I-N-G-S that are causing you to overeat; change your weight loss Inertia; use visual cues and simple routines to set yourself up to succeed; change the way your brain thinks about eating, snacking, and fast food; master calories; debunk myths about weight loss; cut out certain bad foods like diet colas; watch the weight fall off, and, then, begin eating moderately and exercising to maintain your skinny college weight.” By untying the knots in the right order, Matt lost over 80 pounds and achieved what had for years seemed utterly impossible to him!

Join Matt Mercer on Lose Weight Radio, Sunday nights at 8 as he lays out the Lose Weight Baby Steps and explains his journey in losing the weight, feeling young again, realizing explosive energy, and being forced to buy an all-new wardrobe! Call in or hear from other show listeners as they call in and share their weight loss goals, struggles, and shout-outs in losing 5, 10, 20, 45 or more pounds!!  Join the movement and you’ll soon be saying: “If you’ll eat like no one else today… you can look & feel like no one else tomorrow!”
