FOOD LOVERS FOR FAT LOSS

I've added Robert Ferguson's Food Lovers for Fat Loss System to my repertoire. I started the detox and am on Day 5 and have lost 9 lbs! that's about a dress size like he says. So I'll go into the 21 day metabolism re-set which i've heard of before.
$39.99 to ship and $19.99 for 5 months thereafter. & NO I don't work for the company!
I am so happy to finally find a program that:
finally someone who knows about the glycemic LOAD! & boosting
& gives a very specific eating schedule for different exercise schedules
& doesn't label foods good and bad.
& addresses the motivational issue & that we may know what to do but have trouble DOING it
& the program is reasonable
& doesn't ask people to make 5 million changes all at one time.
& Robert is not charging people an arm and a leg & you can buy it on a payment plan
& not trying to sell you a bunch of other crap, actually just trying to help people.
& that you eat real food, not pre-packaged junk.
& good for diabetics and vegetarians, and your kids and your spouse (even if they don't know it! - nothing special for you & something different for everyone else)
So happy to finally find a program where I agree with absolutely EVERYTHING in it and can therefore feel like I can TRUST everything I'm told in the program. (especially when it comes to the snacks where I would be the most leery) & it's NOT A DIET!
This kit includes EVERYTHING - I did not see one component missing. He even includes a workout video. The only other stuff I had to buy was a timer to keep me on track and the stuff for the detox. (& the detox is optional)

Well...if it includes a detox designed for weight loss, it *is* a form of diet. I'm VERY glad to hear that they list the detox as optional; my respect for the plan went up considerably when I heard that, although I would feel even better if there were no detox at all. Once the detox is over, the eating plan sounds like it is very reasonable and could be very healthy and maintainable (a real lifestyle change rather than a diet), so that's a plus. Anyway, I'm firmly against detoxes, from a scientific standpoint, BUT I'm very glad that you are finding success.
I'm on a weight loss plans that meets each and every one of those criteria, too...and it's 100% free. I'd be happy to share the information with you, if you're interested.

I am following the Food Lovers Fat Loss program as well, and I have lost just shy of 18 inches since I started in August. I opted out of the detox with being a diabetic, and even though I am a type 1 diabetic, it has really dropped my insulin needs. I do a sliding scale for my insulin to carb ratio and I have cut back on my regular insulin, and my A1c dropped from 10 to 8.6 in 2 months. I say it works and works quite well for me.

I just bought the food lovers diet. I was on it one week and lost 8 pounds. I didn't do the detox first. The only reason I went off of it is because I procrastinated about getting to the grocery store and didn't get snacks...and then Thanksgiving. I'm ready to get back on it. I like everything about it. It doesn't seem to me to be a scam and it is affordable. I actually had to eat more often than I ever was and was never hungry. It was like I 'balanced' inside so when I sat down to a hot meal I never craved seconds or never put too much on my plate to begin with. I surprised myself! That has never happened before on a diet...but, to me, this is not at all a diet. It's more of a tweak to my usual eating pattern.

Could we get some more details about this, please? The website really doesn't explain it.

I tried this plan, because I am hypothyroid and insulin resistant I gained weight. Too much carb overload for my body to handle.
The basic idea is to eat your carbs with your protein to keep your blood sugar from rising too quickly. 2 snacks a day of 100-200 calories, and most are carb snacks, anything without a label you need not count the calories and things like cornnuts, multigrain chips etc all ok as long as 200 calories. Your meals are made up of 1 serving protein, 1 serving fast carb (potato, rice, pasta, etc or fruit) and 1 serving slow carb (veggies) the problem is that many of the "slow carbs" are high sugar veggies, that for many of us cause problems. And the fast carbs are things I cannot eat because it causes a chain reaction that ends with insulin production and that insulin storing all of the food eating as FAT!!
I am not knocking the program, for 75% of people, eating like this will allow you to lose weight, but for the other 25%, we need to stick to low carb.
Good luck to you all.

Yea, it doesn't restrict carbs. It does teach slow carbs/fast carbs like you said. It also gets you away from 'white' foods...like switching from white flour to wheat flour...white rice to brown rice...making healthier choices and strongly encourages drinking water...but still allows for coffee, diet sodas...They want you eating something every 2-3 hours so your metabolism keeps burning and not storing...all the way up to 1 hour before bedtime. You are supposed to eat something within about 30 minutes (I think) of waking up since you haven't eaten all night. There is usually an infomercial on late at night on it if you get cable/satellite tv...I'm off to the grocery store tomorrow to stock up on snacks

I have been on the program for 6 days now and have lost 12 pounds. I have to admit I was quite grumpy(per my wife & kids) some of the days, but I am looking forward to starting to make my fat loss plates. I have already shopped for most everything I will need. I like the idea of eating less more frequently and not being hungry when I sit down at the dinner table. This is not a scam at all. It's a simple way to lose the weight you want without having to starve yourself.

Low Carb plus cheat diet
That is an amazing story. Good for you. We need these reminders that everything in moderation is ok. We just need balance.
