Re: plexus slim

If it's weight loss that you desire, then I would steer you in the direction of increasing your dietary fiber. Essentially, it works this way; the more fiber that is ingested daily, less room is available for foods containing saturated fat and cholesterol. Note: there is no fiber found in animal products or dairy. Also, a plant based diet contains ZERO cholesterol.

Such gimmicks for weight loss are usually not sustainalbe. Best off working creating a sustainable diet that works for your BG control. Many of us find that simply altering our diets to control BG will lead to weight loss. Add in some excercise and it gets even better for both weight control and BG control. A good method for figuring out those dietary changes is to use your meter. Alan has a great write up on doing that, Test, Review, and Adjust. It works quite well :smileywink:

Keep in mind, lack of fiber does not make a food bad, doesn't always make it less filling either. Often high protien meals can be just as filling as a high fiber salad lacking in protien. The worry about cholesterol in things like meat, and the lack of it in plants is really a smoke screen. The cholesterol we end up with in our bodies is produced from the building blocks, which are found in plant based foods. Same way that steak got the contain cholesterol. After all those cattle are on a strict plant based diet themselves :smileywink: In fact, many diabetics find their cholesterol levels drop when they cut back on eating carbs...and still eat meat, cheese, eggs, etc.

No.

 

Oh, you wanted the longer answer? :smileyhappy:

 

Supplements, pills, diet shakes and other short-term rapid weight loss diets do not work; neither for long term weight loss nor for effective blood glucose management. You need to develop a new way of eating that is effective in the short term for weight loss, but becomes something you can sustain in the long term for the rest of your life to maintain the loss and better health.

Oh my, I'm sure there will be zillions of other selling items when you go to the lecure since "Loser" is a huge money-making venture, besides going for TV rating that is.

 

Are you diabetic?  If so how are your numbers and what are you doing currently with your diet to improve things?

Re: plexus slim

Plexus slim may work for Texas Slim, but for the rest of us would be a gamble.

 

And perhaps a punch in the (solar) plexus... not worth a ramble...

Never, ever forget that show is entertainment, not education.

 

It is reality TV, not reality.

 

There was a show a while ago that followed up on the contestants some years later, but I can no longer find it on the web. Does anyone have a link to that?
