That depends on whether you're asking addadude, ksl, superglide or me :lol:

Being a size 30 and finding difficulty putting on weight, I don't know much about weight loss programs. Still, anything that involves rounded diets and exercise and most of all works sounds like a winner. Would it be wrong to say the money paid for the program acts more as an incentive than actually buying something special? Kinda like "damn, I've blown that much on the program, might as well stick to it!"

Initially I thought that would be an incentive, but subsequently, I also know people who have done the program as many as 3 times. Quitting for a number of reasons. (Not known any here in Singapore but in Aus. there are a number as well as in the US and SA.) Sometimes they just didn't quite have their heads in the right place when they started out and ended up deviating from the diet which will completely derail the process. As I said, it's a very rigid diet. It has to be in order to survive for extended periods of time on around 800 calories a day. But, yeah, it could be an incentive to some, for sure.

I'm more fascinated with the blood analysis and the bio chemistry behind it! Maybe it's a good investment if you get to know everything :) Which i doubt :cry: But i am doing some research on it! :)

Congratulations SMS! What an achievement.

I know what you mean about Paying it forward; I too have tried sharing this amazing secret with some people, but I face cynicism and well-meaning advice about how exercising would do the trick. No it wouldn't, at least not for me.

I'm not even at refeeding yet but I'm 6 weeks on the diet and have seen the weight melting away. Started at almost 70kg and am now 62kg, an 8kg loss in 6 weeks. I'm aiming for another 4kg loss even though the low end of my goal target (set by the good doctor) is 60kg. I've never ever eaten this healthily nor drank so much water in my life. And I haven't had such good continuous sleep in such a long time. My current weight is also the lowest I've been since falling sick some 3 years ago.

The best part is how easy this has been. I mean, not easy easy, I still think of food lots, but the craving's not crazy like before. This is the diet that ends all diets. I was all ready to throw in the towel and accept my weight, till this came along. Again, like you said, through word of mouth, in this case a friend's friend who lost 20kg a year plus ago and has not regained her weight.

You, like many others who have done the same, are an inspiration to me. Enjoy your second lease of joyful life!

Hi SMS,
I read this topic and I'm very much interested, however, I can't seem to get how to go about this program. Sorry, I couldnt understand the link so much, how do you get started on this program, and how to get the details?
I have lots of extra kilos, gained lots of them recent years when I was working like crazy at office, no life balance at all. I nowadays take on more sports stuff since I know I have strong endurance and perspire a lot. But seems it's not enough.
Pls enlighten, thanks!

Thanks Pal & SE. It's been an interesting 22 weeks I must say. My 18 yo son is now worried about his clothes disappearing! :cool:

elezabeth_o & freecat, make a couple of more posts as you need 5 to activate your PM function. Both of you have mail.

Thanks for your pm SMS. Yes, I found THAT forum a week or so ago and since then have been hooked. It's so much better than another forum I had been going to.

The fact that the diet is so strict yet so easy now makes me wanna shake every obese person I see and try to let them see the light. But weight is such a sensitive issue and everyone's a cynic too, I also don't wanna be seen as smug about my weight-loss. But I do wanna pay it forward. I guess by posting in this forum, maybe others will be more convinced that this can HAPPEN for everyone, whether someone who needs to lose 100kg in a year, or like me, 10kg in 2-3 months.

What's even more important than the weight loss, is the vast improvement in general wellbeing, even mood and ultimately happiness. Vanity definitely plays a part, but in the long-term the best thing to come of this journey is good health. Right from the start, I stopped feeling lethargic and no longer take afternoon naps that made me more tired afterwards.

Yeah, found the post & the store okay. Met Paul & his wife (the owners) picked up more Rooibos tea and a good stock of Provita's as well. Oh, he's carrying boerewors as well apparently. Thinking of the link in my freezer now! :P

Yeah, Case's afraid I'm gonna take my tan Harness leather belt back!

You've dragged a few out of the woodwork SMS, well done.

I can attest to SMS's journey. Followed it everyday. Anyone considering it really needs to understand that it does take a lot of self-discipline to succeed. If you are the sort of person who'll fool themselves but thinking "just one won't hurt" about stuff you're not meant to have, then I wouldn't bother getting on the programme until you can control the inner devil.

It's fast, it's effective, it's healthy and it's real. But it takes a lot of commitment.
