    Anne Bodytrim is basically what you just said in your simple rules at the ground level of the program, it's just it puts it into a followable plan so people have guidance.

    I agree with you completely, why shove crap processed food into our own mouths when you wouldn't do it to your dogs.

    The worst thing that EVER happened to humans eating habits was SUPERMARKETS, they are terrible. Shop the way your grandmother did and you'll be right. Go to the butcher and the vege shop and the deli and your are done!

    Oh and get moving, people spend WAY to much time in front of computers, game stations, and TVs... if you aren't doing AT LEAST 10000 steps per day your life is considered sedentry and therefore unhealthy.

    yeah i agree. i found one of my problems is to not eat. im a comfort eater and my old portion sizes were far to big. now with the pills i am able to train my mind and body into accepting less food and it being enough for me.

    my mum had alot of success on the cowens diet. that is the one where u get the blood test done to see what your body can and cannot handle. but like most diets the weight has started comming back on now she stopped.

    I've never heard of cowens diet (will google when I have time) but I do know of IgG Antibody blood testing but this is used to determine intolerance to different things. I have had my biocompatibiliy test done on my hair (it's more thorough than the IgG but a different process) and I have many intolerances, most of which are believed to be secondary with dairy being my primary intolerance.

    I wouldn't have thought these processes were used to help weightloss though as opposed to correct health issues. My dairy intolerance causes severe stomach upset, bloating, flatulence and rosacea looking redness on my face. I also can't tolerate some vegies, chocolate, lots of processed foods like rice/pasta/flour/bred and highly processed cereals, oils as well.

    I guess if I don't eat what I'm told I can't I'd probably lose more weight, as it doesn't leave me with anything that would be conducive to putting on weight that's for sure.

    LOL luckily I've never been a chocolate fiend.... it doesn't phase me much. Ice cream is probaly the biggest thing I miss and even then that's not very often.

    I thought body trim allowed foods such as bacon though? I am sure I read somehwere that you have bacon and eggs for one breakfast or am I talking about rubbish here?

    Bacon and eggs, fried particularly, are not healthy or natural and cooked in fat. Bleeergh.

    The option to have bacon is there, but it is advised to dry fry in a non stick fry pan or microwave on paper towel and ensure fat is removed.

    Meals like omlettes with ham, scrambled eggs with fried (dry fried - fried does not mean you have to have oil/fat) tomato, sauteyed mushrooms with poached eggs etc are recommended but yes you could have the 'eye' bit minus the fat of bacon as your protein source. It's way too high in sodium though to be eaten regularly. As are most deli meats. I don't eat them at all they are nasty.

    More importantly though the portion size for a female meal is only 100g of protein source which is what people should be eating. Most people eat far more.

    That was what I was referring to, the salt content and the fact it is processed. it is not natural. I would not be eating ham either if I wanted to lose weight.

    By having people follow his diet, they are keeping poor habits. While under instruction of the diet, they may follow it more to the letter but give them a few months after they have stopped and they will be cooking that bacon like they have always and they will eat it when they want.

    If they avoided processed foods in the first place, such as ham and bacon or thought of them only as foods they should eat only every so often, they have more chance of understanding the difference between good and bad.

    In having said all that, I have heard people talk glowingly of his diet and I am not a nutritionist so I really can only push that this is my opinion.
