Book Giveaway & Author Interview: 29 Days to Your Perfect Weight by Richard Fast

Welcome to Author Richard Fast.

Richard Fast, the author, certified Life Coach and creator of more than 30 toys, games, puzzles and books, has devoted the past twenty years into the research and development of his 29DAYS template.

He, like the rest of us, had always been told that if you want to change your life just change your thoughts. But how can we change the way we think?

Richard was well aware of the abundance of self-help and motivational material that is readily available, but what was vitally needed was an effective way to apply the information so that the average person could experience the permanent results they so desperately desired.

A number of years ago, Richard quit a 60-cigarette-a-day addiction. He had always thought that he had managed to quit through willpower. After deeper reflection and analysis he realized that willpower had nothing to do with his ability to break his crippling addiction. In fact, he discovered that he had actually used a systematic approach to changing his deepest thoughts and beliefs, and that this “change in thought” mirrored much of what modern neuroscience claims to be the twenty-eight day cycle of making or breaking a habit … permanently.

Richard discovered that we can change our fundamental thoughts into desirable new habits by following the same cognitive procedures that we used to create our existing habits.

The 29DAYS template of change has been tried on numerous people with a wide variety of beliefs, addictions, and behaviors, and the results have been predictable but astonishing.

Richard’s 29 DAYS template for change uses proven, scientific techniques, technology and online coaching, to guide you through a step-by-step process toward changing your thoughts and acquiring desirable new habits … effortlessly and permanently.


Q: If you were stranded on a desert island what 3 things would you want with you?
A: A solar powered laptop, internet access and Warren Buffet’s American Express Card. With that I could figure the rest out.

Q: What is your favorite quote?
A: “You can live to be a hundred if you give up all the things that make you want to live to be a hundred.”
Woody Allen

Q: If you could travel in a Time Machine would you go back to the past or into the future?
A: I’d go back in time so I could dump Suzy Schiederhorn before she dumped me!

Q: If you could invite any 5 people to dinner who would you choose?
A: My first choice would be Jesus, and I would humbly ask him to be the head chef. He was an absolute miracle worker with the two fishes and five loaves, so I can only imagine what he could do with today’s ingredients. As for the wine selection he could create … oh the possibilities are endless.
My second choice would be Warren Buffett. Getting fool-proof stock tips over a glass of Jesus’ finest Merlot would be about as good as it gets.
My third choice would be Adolph Hitler. I would love to watch him explain himself to Jesus.
My fourth choice would be Mozart. What’s a meal without a little dinner music?
My fifth choice would be Mr. Clean. Someone’s gotta do the after-dinner clean up, and when he finished cleaning the dishes he could clean Hitler’s clock while the rest of us test Jesus’ skill at turning water into port and cognac.

Q: What is your favorite sport to watch on TV?
A: I absolutely love an afternoon snooze so I would have to say baseball.

Q: Pet Peeves?
A: Actually I have exactly ten of them. See the link below.

Q: Please tell us in one sentence only, why we should read your book.A: Because 29 DAYS … to a habit you want! is a fascinating explanation of how we arrived at our present thoughts, behaviors and beliefs, and it explains how you can quickly and easily change them into thoughts and behaviors of your choosing – all that without using any run-on sentences, that’s why!

Q: If you could have any superpower what would you choose?A: Definitely the United States, I don’t speak a word of Russian.

Q: What TV show/movie/book do you watch/read that you’d be embarrassed to admit?
A: I categorically deny it. It would be just too embarrassing to admit!
