Carla Ferrer Shares What Works Better Than Diets or Surgery

Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “Do the thing and you shall have the power; but they that do not the thing have not the power.” In her latest episode of Fat to Fantabulous, Carla Ferrer, a certified nutritionist, speaker and personal trainer, emphasizes the importance of a positive mindset to achieving personal goals.


Luck and timing have nothing to do with results, says Carla — rather the determination and drive that a person puts into a task are what foster success. ‘How To’ books will only get you so far. If access to the right information were the answer, everyone would be rich, healthy, thin, happy and fulfilled. Yet, most people of are none of those.

The reason diets and bariatric procedures don’t work for many people is the same reason most books and courses on achieving financial success don’t work for many people. The problem is not with the programs or procedures – it’s that people don’t stick with the instruction and keep doing the HOW!

The secret to success is to change your thinking, says Carla. At the end of the day, you must modify your mindset to get results. Old habits must die, and new healthy habits must be born. To have the power you must do the thing.
