How to Lose Weight When You Weigh Pounds | cutyrasohase.tk
I have lost 36 pounds so far in just two months. I can eat when we go out, I get snacks and I even get a couple of my favorite diet sodas during the day. My son even is getting into, loosing weight and he doesn't he know he's eating healthier. If you think you have tried everything and nothing works I believe that my "accidental" viewing of Doug's interview on the Club was a Divine Appointment. I had recently been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes and my doctor's advice was "eat a lot of lettuce, drink a lot of water, and stay hungry all the time I am only 40 and I want to live a long and healthy life.
By getting rid of this poison sugar that I was putting into my body, my blood sugar within a few weeks dropped from a fasting level of to I have lost 12 pounds so far, too.
This is a lifestyle and mindset change that I can and will live with. There are substitutes for everything that you think you will miss or give up! I am eating better now than I ever did before when I put no restrictions on myself. My energy levels have skyrocketed, and my life has improved immensely The Fat to Skinny book and the support provided on the Forum is a useful tool for anyone looking for a healthier lifestyle.
You do not starve yourself. Using the Fat To Skinny plan, you learn how to replace foods that have hidden sugars with equally delicious food that have no or low sugars. This way, your body burns fat for fuel instead of the sugars that used to flow through your body. I highly recommend this book and its member forum.
I am a type one diabetic and could never control my blood sugar or my weight. This really works because it's not a diet!
How to Lose Weight Fast: 3 Simple Steps, Based on Science
I am a diabetic and this is the best book I have ever bought , and I have a shelf full of most that have been highly advertised. It is simply reading and easy to follow. I am almost completely off my diabetic meds. I have also lost weight and feel great. I will be 70 this year. Have ordered 5 so far. Guess that's a good enough review!!
Yes you can change your life, this is not about a diet, but a new lifestyle, shaking off your addiction to sugar and becoming a thinner and healthier you, this is a book of big print. Me 32 lbs lost in less than 60 days! My son bought this book at the Florida State Fair in He lost lbs with this book!
It is the most comprehensible diet book ever!
I bought two more copies for my brother and my nephew. Every diabetic should own this book! If they did, there might be a lot less diabetes! My son was not diabetic but just wanted to be healthier. He did so well with this book that he is now featured on the back cover! Turscak, Safety Harbor, Fl. I purchased this book, and found it to be a great book about weight loss, I bought so many diet books but, none were like this one. I already lost 70lbs and learn through this book the proper way to eat, lower blood sugar, and the inches just came off.
I recommend this book to everyone who wants to be and stay healthy in Thanks Doug you change my life!! I am proud to be able to contribute in a small way to Doug's efforts to enlighten people as to the true cause of weight gain, diabetes, high blood pressure, high-cholesterol and that thing called "metabolic syndrome". You should have been a doctor. In many ways what you're doing now will make a bigger impact on the country's health than anything a doctor could dream of accomplishing.
I am so so pleased to have found a book that coincides with everything I have been telling my patients for years. Now I can talk briefly with patients and hand them a book knowing that what is put forth in the text is everything I believe and transcends the stalled stale conversation of low carbs and exercise.
This is a seminal work that awakens us to what is all around us but yet invisible. Like water to a fish we have been unable to see what has been in front of us all the time. What water I don't see any water! I don't see any sugar! Unfortunately our bodies do see all the sugar and respond with obesity and "metabolic syndrome". This book is a must read for anyone interested in taking their health to the next level. I've tried many different diets, but never stuck to them. I was already attracted when I saw people I know use this diet and lose the weight, but when I received my book and read through it, I knew this was one diet I could do.
Doug not only explains how, but why. He gives you delicious and simple meals that are filling and help keep those nasty hunger pains at bay. He shows you in simple terms why what we normally eat and consider good for us, isn't, if we want to lose weight. I love the book and look forward to continued success in my own goal of losing weight.
Yes, there are tons of diets out there, but sometime in January, my friend bought your book at the Florida fairgrounds and didn't think she was ready, so I inherited the book! My husband and I both started slowly with your ideas and steadily became believers. I have lost 31 lbs. He has lost about 40 so far. Thank you for your book and this is the first diet we have been on that we are able to stick to. Evelyn and Neil Roberts.
Your program works for me and I know it will work for many other people. Thank you so much! Your book fired up this old Marine to get back in shape one more time I was really sucking wind and gaining weight Doug. Up to about and no end in sight till I read your book. I have only been with the program a few days and I can already feel the difference. Hell yes I miss that sugar and fight the feeling but my vision has cleared up allot and also I am beginning to feel the fat parts of my appendages shrinking.
Yep I can actually feel it. Much more vascular already. Tried on a pair of pants that were a bit snug just last week when they arrived. Had to cinch them up a bit. I am going to knock this lard off once and for all Doug thanks to your by the numbers approach to what has been a mystery up till now. You know in the Marine Corps we do everything by the numbers due to lack of brain activity in your standard issue Marine.
That's part of the allure of your system. Finest kind, Thanks Doug - Jack Connor.
I am very thankful that we met! I haven't actually weighed myself lately. But my belt is 3 notches smaller now. I have not needed my nitroglycerine spray. But more important, I do not have cravings. I read your book. Thanks, it is simple to understand and explains in simple terms why many people are over weight and how they can successfully lose their fat. The fact that it is short and to the point makes it easy for someone who is motivated to follow. Congratulations to you and your wife on your long term, successful weight management Wright , Ashville, NC.
Anyway, I just wanted to give you an update. I have a long way to go, but I wanted to let you know. I have taken pictures all the way along also and I need new business clothes. My sister is also still losing and we both feel gr8. I started at I just woke up one day and realized that sugar and flour was killing me. I have been so amazed reading your book it is exactly the way I have been eating right down to the sugar-free Jello and whipped topping. I have been at a plateau now for about weeks and so glad I read your book it should really help me continue to lose the lbs that I have left to lose.
I'm a little nervous to try to stop losing. I don't want to gain any back.
You also have helped me understand the NET carb thing. Now it all makes sense to me. My mom and sister have seen my success and are trying to change their way of eating. I wanted you to know your book is so easy to understand I bought one for both of them. Congratulation and Thank you!!! Thanks Doug for taking the time to write this book! I struggled with my weight all my life and I tried everything to help it, but nothing worked for me I found your book online and said well lets give it a try Thank GOD I did!!!!!
I started March 16th at lbs. I can not tell you how much this book means to me. My goal weight is I have no doubt I will reach it with in 2 or 3 months thanks for the Life Change. You are the man I turned a few of my friends and customers onto your book and they already lost 10 or more lbs already to So just wanted to say thank you very much My husband Steve is about 80 pounds overweight and has Type 2 Diabetes.
I read Fat to Skinny last month hoping that I could learn how to help him lose weight and combat his glucose problem. Steve was skeptical and despite my prompting did not read the book. Three weeks ago he developed sudden severe pain in his right leg, which sent us to the ER. It took a couple weeks to diagnose the cause which turned out to be a torn meniscus, requiring surgery. To treat the symptoms the ER doc prescribed steroids but warned that since he is diabetic that he'd have to be extremely careful of sugar and carbs while on the steroids. Now he was totally dependent on me as all he could do was lay in bed or in the recliner.
So I put him on the Fat to Skinny plan. He had plenty of tasty food to eat and he did nothing but lay around for three weeks, meaning he was burning almost no calories during this whole time. Well, he has lost seven pounds in the past three weeks. Imagine what his weight loss would have been if he were actually active and burning calories. I think we'll find out because now he is a convert, gladly sticking to the Fat to Skinny plan. His blood glucose now measures in the nineties! If this keeps up he'll be able to go off of his diabetes medication.
By the way, I have lost five pounds in the past three weeks while roughly abiding by the Fat to Skinny Plan. This new awareness has enabled me to cut back on sugar intake and lose some extra weight. Doug's ideas are not fads--they are simple words of wisdom from the Lord and practical methods based on research.

Thank you, Doug, for sharing your insights. And thank you, CBN, for having Doug on the program. I'd love to see and hear more from him. My husband and I have been on Atkins and South Beach with very little results and never could stay on it. The biggest difference with FTS is education.
The book explains why this way of eating is so important for a lifetime of health in a way that is very easy for almost anyone to comprehend. You truly begin to look at certain foods as poison for your body and they lose their appeal. We have made gradual changes and probably are not eating less than 20 carbs everyday and in 2 months I have lost 10 lbs and my husband has lost The best part is he no longer has to take insulin shots.
No way, those are the people on T. I finally faced my problem and noticed how unhappy I really was. I remember how I would avoid mirrors without really meaning to; I saw my reflection one day and on this particular day I felt happy, or so I thought but the mirror showed a sad, deformed, unrecognizable figure staring back at me with a false smile.
Too many tomorrows came and went before I had enough of it. There is no better time to start dieting than right now. I tend to be very skeptic about… just about everything really. I read some books, went online and really started reading just about every article I could find about nutrition.

I wanted to understand how it worked. How food impacts you as a whole and why different foods accomplished different things. I understood the importance of scheduling and quantifying certain food groups such as carbohydrates and proteins. Most importantly, I listened to my body and limited myself and set portions of food. Sure, I went to sleep hungry for a while but I was eating like a regular person and it really is such a small sacrifice to pay for such a huge reward.
I started using tools to motivate me and keep me on track, I graphed my progress for a few months and took pictures. I hit some bumps along the way, even some plateaus, but I never got discouraged. I tried several diets, the keto diet being one of my most successful ones, but eventually created my own diet based off the newly acquired knowledge in the world of nutrition set to my liking and right for my body.
If lifting weights is not an option for you, then doing some cardio workouts like walking, jogging, running, cycling or swimming will suffice. It is important to stick to healthy carb sources like oats, rice, quinoa, potatoes, sweet potatoes, fruit, etc. But only this one higher carb day — if you start doing it more often than once per week you're not going to see much success on this plan. Be aware that cheat meals or carb refeeds are NOT necessary, but they can boost some fat-burning hormones like leptin and thyroid hormones 14 , You will gain some weight during your refeed day, but most of it will be water weight and you will lose it again in the next 1—2 days.
It is NOT necessary to count calories as long as you keep the carbs very low and stick to protein, fat and low-carb vegetables. However, if you really want to count them, use this calculator. Enter your details, and then pick the number from either the "Lose Weight" or the "Lose Weight Fast" section — depending on how fast you want to lose weight.
There are many great tools you can use to track the number of calories you are eating. Here is a list of 5 calorie counters that are free and easy to use. The main goal of this plan is to keep carbs under 20—50 grams per day and get the rest of your calories from protein and fat. Even more tips here: You can expect to lose 5—10 pounds of weight sometimes more in the first week, then consistent weight loss after that. If you're new to dieting, then things will probably happen quickly. The more weight you have to lose, the faster you will lose it. For the first few days, you might feel a bit strange.
Your body has been burning carbs for all these years, so it can take time for it to get used to burning fat instead. For me it takes three. Adding some extra salt to your diet can help with this. After the first few days, most people report feeling very good, with even more energy than before.
Despite many decades of anti-fat hysteria, the low-carb diet also improves your health in many other ways:. If you have a medical condition, talk to your doctor before making changes because this plan can reduce your need for medication. By reducing carbs and lowering insulin levels, you change the hormonal environment and make your body and brain "want" to lose weight.
