“All I Can Say Is Life Changing!”

Challenge

So far this year more than 38,000 people have signed up for FREE guidance, meal plans, recipes, shopping lists, troubleshooting tips, etc., via the two-week low-carb challenge.

What could happen if you were to take it? Here’s feedback from this week:

Feedback

Hi,

I’m so glad I opened your web page, I’ve been searching for a diet that would suit me for 2-3 years, as I’m overweight by 3.5 stone, or 50 pounds (23 kg).

So after I had read your article I got excited to give it a try and also to stick to it, which I did. The first 3 days I felt a bit hungry between meals but resisted eating, just drank lemon water, after the 3 days I didn’t have that hunger feeling.

Halfway into the second week I felt I could go without 1 meal but I kept to the 3 meal plan, with the result that in the 2 weeks I’ve lost 12 pounds (5 kg) which I’m so happy about and that is why I intend to carry on and see if I can shift another stone.

I want to give you a big thanks.

Regards,
Donald

Women and Fasting

Can women fast? Or is it – as many people still claim – somehow dangerous for them?

Not surprisingly, the use of fasting for weight loss has a long history, since it’s, kind of, like, obvious. I mean, everybody understands that if you do not eat, you are highly likely to lose weight. Duh. Which makes it even more surprising how much people fear missing even a single meal, let alone fast for a prolonged period of time.

They think that fasting (not eating) will make you fat. That’s kind of like saying that splashing water on your head will dry your hair. That’s modern dietetics for you. Kind of a Bizarro world.

There are still many doctors who argue that eating sugar isn’t bad for type 2 diabetics. Kind of makes you wonder how they got into medical school at all. Since it is quite obvious that missing meals leads to weight gain, the old bogeyman, ‘starvation mode’ is often invoked to instill fear.

Tales of people ‘ruining’ their metabolism abound. Food companies, of course have eagerly ‘educated’ medical professionals about the dangers of missing meals and the safety of eating sugar. Nobody makes money when you skip meals. Continue Reading →

“I Was Skeptical, but Since I Got to Eat Bacon and Eggs I Was In”

Before and after

Before and after

Xavier had suspected something was wrong, but didn’t really want to find out what was going on with his body. Then, he was diagnosed as a type 2 diabetic.

His doctor only offered medication – for the rest of his life – but Xavier wasn’t happy about that. He searched the internet for another way. What he found shocked him and changed his life.

Top 10 Fattest Countries in the World – 2016 List

Here’s the top 10 fattest countries in the world in 2016. The top of the list might surprise you:

Gazette Review: Top 10 Fattest Countries in the World – 2016 List

The number one country is Kuwait and number 2 is Saudi Arabia, and the list contains several other Muslim countries with hot climates. So why?

There’s a simple possible explanation. When it’s hot you need to drink a lot. And if you’re Muslim you’re not likely to drink alcohol. So what will it be? For many people it’s soda or other sugary drinks. The number one thing that makes people fat.
