This weekend I saw an infomercial for Food Lover's Fat Loss System. I'm interested but don't want to spend the money on something that is just another gimmick. I hate to admit that I've been making my meals and my family's meals separately and it is getting too expensive and time consuming. I was wondering if any one has tried it and is it something that can be done for life?

Never tried it but I saw the infomercial and personally I think its a huge gimmick.

You said you have been making your meals and your family's meals seperatly but why don't you just make them all the same? I know you are doing Atkins and that you have a younger child at home BUT if you did it slowly they probably wouldn't even notice, and if you are worried about the carbs, you can always make the main meal the same and then just make a small side of rice or what ever else you would normally make for them.

You say you want a cheeseburger but all I hear is "I need love" - a comic strip on the fridge at work.

You have failed only when you quit trying. Until then, you're still in the act of progression. So, never quit trying and you'll never be a failure.

I did wonder about this, but I always think if it seems to good to be true, it probably is.

Like Pixi suggested, I cook the same for my hubby as me and just add rice, potatoes bread etc depending on what it is. He did used to complain eating all this health food, but he is now resigned to it........

I guess I' looking for something that my son can do too. He is 8 and could use to lose a few lbs. He really can't do Atkins because he still needs all the food groups. Not a big veggie eater either and I've tried working the meals around the protein but he doesn't like a lot of the foods I make. If any one has any suggestions on something that will work for both of us......

I have three kids and a husband who is 6'4" we eat mostly the same stuff - I am trying to make sure that every body has healthy food - I often BBQ meat and veggies - some times that is all we have, sometimes I add brown rice and quinoa, we now rarely have pasta but when they do (I am allergic to wheat) I make a sauce from stewed tomatoes and loads of veggies (green peppers, zucchini, mushrooms) - I have the sauce and meat on shredded nappa cabbage.

Davidsmom. I have a niece who lives with me, she isn't particularly picky.. BUT she isn't huge on the veggies or things like that. Does your son like cheese? Because pretty much every veggie with cheese sauce is good (gee I wonder how my ass got this big lol). Um Smoothies, or veggie/fruit drinks are always a good one, you can add veggies into a smoothie and the kid will never know... the fruit hides the veggies. Is there a particular veggie(s) that he does like? You can always look for new ways to prepare what he does like.

It is hard and I know you don't want to subject him to the full on atkins but if you are feeding him good healthy whole grains a long side your normal food and keeping him active he may drop the pounds fairly easy.

Learning to 'pair' foods is important too. For example - having meat w/ a small side of pasta is better than just having the pasta. Or having peanutbutter w/ apple slices is better than just having the apple slices... the proteins slow down the rate of insulin spike to the body.

Personally w/ children, I would focus on eliminating the worst offenders. Make having something like cake or icecream a VERY special occasional treat. Like on their birthday's or a holiday...and that's it.

Get rid of the easy, pre packaged stuff... full of yucky carbs anyway.

Stick primarily w/ anything grown... meat, eggs, fish, veggies, fruit, dairy, true 'whole' grains, etc.

And if he is eating something like scrambled eggs at bkfst, this will hold him a lot longer into his morning at school, than 'junk' cereals, bagels, etc...

And pack him a couple of snacks if he's allowed to eat inbetween meals - again w/ a little protein/healthy carbs... like half a sandwich. Or celery and cream cheese. Or Strawberries and creamed cheese.

From what I understand the Fat Lover's program is about pairing foods, lean/low fat, and naturally lowering calories thru portion control.

Thanks everyone. I've thought about it a lot and I think I'm going to stick with Atkins for myself and try to make meals that my son will eat too. The more I thought about it last night the more I realized that I don't have to make two meals each night. I'm already working the meals on the weekends so I don't know why I thought I couldn't do it on the weekdays too.

D's Mom - I'm so glad you are finding a happy medium for both you, and your family. In a family dynamic there are different needs...especially with children, but also with 'husbands who don't need to lose' or in my case an elderly mother who likes what she likes and doesn't want to change just because I have!

Either way...finding what WILL work on a day to day, week to week basis...is priceless info. You will likely need to spend some amount of time looking at ways to change or vary recipes, do food planning, preparing shopping lists, etc... but in the end your WHOLE family will gain better health through it all! And what a payback on your time investment.

It's worth it! You're worth it
Live, Love, Laugh ...make each day memorable and enjoy the journey.

I'm fortunate that my husband does all the cooking. He and my daughter are not following low carb, only me. I eat exactly what they do, just no potatoes. We have meat/chicken/fish which I can eat, I add butter of olive oil to my plate if needed. I have veggies same as they do, I just don't have rice, potatoes, pasta, etc. And I don't eat dessert. Seems easy/peezy to me. If I did cook I certainly wouldn't make different meals - too much damn work. They can eat what I cook and like it, I am sure you could add the potatoes or pasta or rice and eat the same protein and veg. Good luck.

On a different note. Your son is not too young to start to exercise regularly. When I was his age my neighborhood was full of kids jumping, running, bike riding...that was "our" exercise. Take walks with him on a regular basis. Make it a habit. When you get good at it...start to jog. Build up to running. You will both benefit. I promise.

But one can make healthy choices without having to pay anyone for it. Just my opinion. Support is great.
And I don't buy this "no need to sacrifice" business. Getting rid of excess weight will take some kind of sacrifice.
Just my opinion.

Sounds like you're selling it, angelchris- I think people are looking for real reviews and experiences, not the same sales pitch they give you in the informercial.

Agreed that anything that says you can eat what you want without sacrifice is too good to be true or missing something- you cannot lose weight without a calorie deficit.

i think the "gimmick" is that if you eat foods you "love", you can eat less of them and not feel deprived and stick to your diet a lot longer than depriving yourself of the things you love until such point as you hit a "trigger" and you go to your old ways of eating and gain back what you had worked so hard to lose. i have a kitchen scale so that i can keep my portions and calories within my guidelines. imho i think that you should not set the example that foods are "good" or "bad" it is the portions that are too big.

in my eating life - I needed to give up some of the foods I love (loved). They were plain garbage. I loved them but there is no way eating them was helping me or my body.

Hello friend,
I've tried the Food Lovers Fat Loss System by Robert Ferguson. It helped me burn out my excess fat and transform my body into a fat-burning machine in 8 weeks. The best thing about this fat loss diet plan is that, it allows you enjoy all your favorite dishes, in an orderly manner. So from now onwards you will not have to cook separately for your family and I'm sure this diet plan is going to work on you. I'll suggest you try the Food Lovers Fat Loss Diet Plan.

Both angelchris and karrysmithy haven't recorded anything in their food diary, excercise, or weigh ins and other than this post haven't really done naything on this site. Sounds like a sales pitch to me
