The book I mentioned above is called
Natural Cures they don't want you to know about. by Kevin Trudeau.
I found it on Ebay for about 14-18- so I'll let you know IF i can afford to get it from Ebay and what i learn from it. It's helped aLOt for my friend who was obese her whole life and had a MULTITUDe of health problems such as "IBS" gallbladder issues, Acid reflux, Chronic back pain, and all that xomes with that, and now MS. I know so many of us here have a lot of health issues that contuibute to the overall effect of our bodies and struggles with gaining weight from the healthissues ANd the meds on top of it all. Thats why Im sharing this stuff here. Im certainly not trying to Push this on anyone, but If you could see how much my bestest oldest friend has benefitted from a few changes You'd understand, I think.((i hope))
I am always weray of books and infomercials etc. but I'm goingto get this and take some things into account, and give it a shot. what do i have t olose?? Pain?? discomfort?? poor health?? hmmm. might be worth a shot.

((((mamaC))) LOLOL I KNOW some of that organic healthy stuff is just lacking all the yummy fatty, flavor and stuff Im used to and crave, but I still think perhaos By my replacing a few things here and there I just might feel a little better! So Its worth a shot,eh???

(((hugs to all)))

Mamc & Aw,

I heard about this book on TV and have seen interview with Kevin Trudeau on TV. It sounded like good book.

I would appreciate any info you can either of you provide or perhaps you can start another thread about it!

HSB-

I was a bit overweight a few times. I generally have not been. The few times I struggled were when I decided to diet, like in my teens when there was pressure to be thin. I also lost about 30 lbs a few years ago, which I had gained from being on steroids (that is a lot when you are only 5'3" and small boned, and went from a size 8-10 to a size 0). Some of it was water weight, but a lot of it is that steroid treatment (prednisone) increases your appetite. They changed my drugs, and I stumbled on this diet as my appetite changed. I got back to my normal weight of 107 and then down to 100, only because I really don't eat large enough portions, but believe me, I eat whatever I want whenever I want and all my favorite foods. I go to the ice cream frozen foods every time I am at the grocery and look for new treats. The real secret is starting with solid foods in the morning and moving to liquid foods at night. SO, if you want a milkshake, get a large one for sure, but don't get the hamburger and fries with it. You may think it is not healthy, but since when is a hamburger and fries healthy? I drink yogurt shakes, eat cottage cheese, soup, beans, cheese, eggs, etc. By the way, I am a vegetarian. I eat no meat, fish, chicken, etc. just dairy and eggs...and even those I am picky about...i buy the organic at the grocery. No amount of exercise (and I lifted weights for 12 years) and went to gym consistently will make up for eating too much.

Neshema, I think I"m going to try your way of eating. It makes sense to me, especially since I know for a fact my portions are too big. And this approach isn't restrictive as far as the types of food I can eat...which is good for me because I can't stay on a regimented diet. As for exercise, I'll dust off my stationary bike and see where that takes me.

I don't think I can be a vegetarian, but I can certainly restrict the amount of meat I eat.

To all of you who have shared their diets with me - a BIG thank you. Let's hope that by sharing different methods of losing weight will encourage all of us needing to lose weight to perhaps make a few changes in our diet.

I'm excited. I'll keep you posted on how it goes 🙂

I have had the best luck with atkins.

yeah, it's a fad diet, so they say, but it's been around since 1970...and if you follow it as written and don't buy all the chemically processed stuff, including his brand stuff, it can and does work.

I lost 67 lbs in nine months, going from size 22/24 to size 14/16.

My downfall was social pressure and dating...I felt stupid asking for atkins friendly modifications - this being before all the restaurants became aware of low carbing. Also, I wanted to eat what my date was eating, it wasn't fair he could have it and I couldn't, kind of thinking.

But not any more. I start atkins again tomorrow - and saying goodbye to this extra weight, IBS, reflux, arthritis, aches and pains and nasty skin....hello health.

I also want to mention that "dieting" is NOT a one size fits all situation. NO plan works for everyone - you need to find what works for your lifestyle and your body.

Also worth mentioning - no matter WHAT diet you choose - way of eating - you need to drink TONS of water, take a good vitamin and stay AWAY from artificial sweeteners. Kevin trudeau's book supports this idea as well - but artificial sweeteners are as deadly, or deadlier, than sugar itself.

I Know a few people whio switched ot Vegetarianism and actually GAINEd weight because they were eating a lot More CARBS. so Perhaos just switching to Hormone/steroid , cruelty free meats would be better.
I was a vegetarian for a Number of years, but always missed it and at a cookout one year, it was allllll over for me, I couldnt resist the smell of grilled meats anylonger.
The most effective things for me have been "Picking throughout the day, rather than large meals, adn cutting back on fats, preservatives, chemicals and hormones that are in so many foods. and trying ot move a little more. Walking was also a GREAT stress reliever too when I was more mobile.I Lost weight from quitting diet coke, and red meat. I lost about 8 pounds the first week, because of the sodium in the diet coke and how long our bodies take to "rid" red meat. LOL
((too much info???)))
Best of luck for all trying to be healthier and trying to lose a little extra baggage!

also, i have heard that you can eat anything as long as you eat every two hours...and make sure you get enough protein and veggies in...staying away from "white" - potatoes, white flour, white pasta, white rice, white cereals, white sugar...you get the idea.

These things are all highly processed, so it won't hurt to eliminate them anyway. Drink enough water, eat every two hours and get some exercise even if it means starting out with only 10 minute walk a day and building up.

((((AD))))

Long time I did not see you or post to you. I miss you!!!!!!!!!!!!

Your last post here made me giggle and even crack up.

I used to be 100% vegetarian. As a result, I used to get/feel cold, get tired and feel lethargic. And honestly I even gained weight. Switching to vegetarian diet can wreak havoc on your overall health. You wonder what you would replace meat with. Veggies alone taste bland esp if every day. I used to replace that with peanut butter which made me gain weight.

When I happen to be invited somewhere and I taste meat, the taste would be heavenly, like someone tasting meat for the 1st time in their life, and I frankly started to miss meat and its taste.

So, I changed now from totally vegetarian to semi-vegetarian and believe me I feel much better and healthier. Last week I bought 2 steaks of beef and fried them, they tasted so succulent. So, I treat myself from time to time. Thanksgiving is just around the corner and I am sure I will buy chicken not turkey to roast for myself.

I can honestly say that enjoying meat occasionally is more healthy and tasty than cutting them out altogether.

Good luck to dieting and pursuing good health to all!

Well, if you are going vegetarian, which I have been for 20 years, you have to do it right. You can't live on pasta and bread! There are lots of options for vegetarians, when they learn how to eat, and eating is a personal matter. People have to do what is right for them. I personally cannot eat something that once had a face. Also, I don't eat foods with tons of ingredients. I read labels (even if it means getting out the cheap reading glasses, cuz one day the labels disappeared!). This is what works for me. I eat soy, lentils, beans...there are all kinds of options. I like it. I prefer it, but I am fine going out to eat with a friend who orders a steak right in front of me, because eating is a personal choice. Live and let live.

Now, as for HSB and your choice. IF you have specific questions on my "anti-diet" diet, I can tell you more specifics of what I buy at the grocery store and how I eat. Just post me a note with my name or get my attention somehow. Every friend of mine who has tried what I do, has lost weight. By the way, I also drink Strawberry Ensure and keep it at work. It is a very handy way to get some nutrition when you are on the go.
It has more ingredients than I prefer, but my doctor gave me the okay on it. I NEVER buy diet frozen dinners...yuk! I do keep a few Amy's organic pizzas and enchiladas in the freezer, but I mostly make my own beans and cheese (no tortilla), and yes, I eat sour cream - no guilt! It is a good place to be when you can eat food you like without any guilt and love your body. IT is really important to have a good relationship with food and to love your body. Too many women hate their bodies and are in constant battles with food. The way to start my way of life is to tell yourself you love your body, your body is a temple, a gift from you know who, and the only one you have. Food also is a gift to be enjoyed, but not abused, and not the center of your day. Forget about food. Only think about it when you are eating. People obsess about food and their next meal. Who cares? There is so many more important things going on. We eat to live, not live to eat, but when we do eat, as with all aspects of our lives, we should enjoy the gift, without harming ourselves in the process.

Neshema -- YES! I'd like some more specifics, perhaps a typical day's menu might help or a shopping list.

I'm really excited about this. On to good health 🙂

Hey Hurts

Weight loss isn't complicated...it's a basic consumption/expenditure formula...if you take in more than you burn, you will gain weight. If you burn more than you consume, you will lose.

One pound is approximately 3500 calories. So to lose a pound a week, you need to a 3500 calorie deficit. So you need to take in 500 calories per day less than normal.

You can either eat 500 less calories, or you can burn off 500 calories with exercise. Ideally, you will do both.

It's not really in WHAT you eat...the "what" determines how healthy and nutritionally balanced your diet is...but a calorie is a calorie is a calorie. The calorie from an apple is the same as one from a chip...but the apple has nutritional value to boot.

Even simpler (this is the way I have lost all the weight from my babies...from my last baby in under 3 months)

Determine your "ideal" weight. Multiply that by 13. That is how many calories you need to consume per day in order to maintain that weight. If you are really into exercise like me...multiply by 18.

I know you said you don't like counting calories, and neither did I. But keeping a food journal for 1 month early on and counting calories really helped me to learn what to eat and how to eat.

I don't do food journals now...I know a banana has about 100 calories, my milk has 90 and my cereal 165. So there's my breakfast.

I think the only way to lose it is to learn about food so you can manage it effectively.

I don't just talk the talk...I am 5'9, 135 pounds (3 months postpartum) toned, muscular, I'm a 34DD (the one part that I can't seem to lose is my boobs) and run 4 miles a day. I am not a diet angel...I do like my treats! But I know how to balance because I took the time to learn about portions, calories, fat grams and nutrition.

Being an avid runner doesn't hurt though. My average weight was 145 before I started running, which was a very healthy weight for my height as well. I'm quite small now, but this is where my running weight seems to gravitate to, and I'm not complaining! I look pretty damn good

Exercise will seal the deal. Do you work out?
