i am being inundated with emails and comments about em's diet!
here is a little note from em:
Thank you so much for all your nice comments. I am feeling so great and am
so glad that I did it.
I will tell you it was really hard, and you have to be really committed and
ready in order to stick to it.
I found the doctor through our hairdresser who has done the diet twice,
having a baby in between.
Click on the link below for more info. She is local so you may need to call
them and ask if there is anyone similar in your area,
Thanks again for all the nice comments
here is the link:
The doctor and program are local, and you have to qualify to sign up for the program. Before you even start, you have a consultation with the dr. and attend a seminar about the program. Then you have to get a series of tests and a physical to make sure it’s safe for you to be on the diet. I remember this felt like a lot of hoops to jump through. I remember that Emily was really really READY to do WHATEVER it took to lose the weight. She thought about it for awhile, and knew what it entailed. But I think it got to the point that nothing fit, she was miserable, and just made the decision and commitment in her own mind. I can remember telling her… hey, it’s 120 days. You can do anything for 120 days! 120 days will come and go whether you do it or not. … em is pretty private in general, but she told everyone around her what she was doing, and had tons of supportive people. The first little bit was SO HARD for her. I remember her just being so hungry, and just having to go to sleep cause she couldn’t’ eat! But after just a couple of weeks, she had adjusted, totally knew exactly how to deal with the limitations, and just totally stuck with it. (although she did tell me everyday what day it was). She lost 12 lbs in the first 2 weeks of the diet. I would guess there are similar programs elsewhere.
She had to weigh all her food- so it wasn’t a calorie counting deal, and once she was going, it was so easy for her to stick with it! I wish it were a more readily available program. I remember when she went to get her physical and stuff from her normal dr., his nurse totally knew about the program, and they referred people over there all the time.
Anyway, check out the link! Good luck!
