this dropped my blood sugar from 184 to 121 in 2 1/2 weeks and 10 lbs. lost. A wonderful new way of eating. Do not miss animal products like I thought i would. Was a real beef eater. Try it!

I am hypothyroid and can't lose weight on any diet. This one worked for me, left me feeling satisfied and never hungry, yet also not bloated.

As a side bonus, my joint pain went away and my energy and mood increased. I will stay on this, perhaps occasionally (once a month or so) eating meat at family gatherings or when traveling.
