Saw this on an infomercial this morning and wonder if it's going to work based on glycemic profile? My doctor is always going on about the glycemic index so I thought that I might give this a try- Has anyone out there tried it? I've been using AL's Secure for the past week or so and feel like I'm gaining instead of losing.

Hi Forrest. I saw the infomercial too. I really wonder about it because I eat constantly and have only gained 4 pounds in the last 3 years, so maybe I'm already using the principles of glycemic index without fully understanding it? actually, on second thought, no, i can't be --because even a modest gain of 4 pounds in the last 3 years *still means* my body is in fat STORING mode, and not fat burning mode. i want the latter for sure! i am determined to learn more and if it works i will share the knowledge with my brother's wife who is overweight. i'm very tempted to try the food lovers system because i see some parallels to it and the way i'm eating now, plus they said it's a lifelong skill and will always stay with you. just the other day i was wondering "what is wrong with me? seems like i'm always hungry and chowing down on something
every 2-3 hours. this is nutso" but then a little voice inside said "But be glad because at the same time, you're not the size of Shamu." However, if I remember correctly the infomercial also mentioned exercise as part of the program. my cousin's gf has always told me that in my case all i need to do is exercise because i'm 5-feet-9 161 pounds with a 36 waist (i'm male, 38 yrs old)
I don't know anything about the program, but here's where you can at least get an idea of what other people are posting about it:
I've seen this infomercial a few times and it seems like a gimmick. How can you eat brownies, pasta, etc and be on the low glycemick index? Also, the junk food and anything out of a box isn't healthy and it will perpetuate the problem of gaining and losing weight. If you ate a clean diet, you won't crave the junk food as much and will find alternatives. If you go back and forth with eating things out of a box, you aren't detoxing from sugar, salt and fat.
Before you make a decision, I suggest you read reviews of his book on Amazon, too, as well as reading reviews of the system shown on the infomercial.
Well. I made the jump and ordered this system. My doctor is always going on about the glycemic thing and I've tried just about everything else with the same results- take it off and then put it back on +- I really need to conquer this and make it work- the best was Atkins, but I just can't take all that fat, I lost on NS then went off and went on a cruise! Maybe I should just buy his book instead of the whole enchilada
Well if FL is a lifelong skill that will always stay with you, then think of it as a wise investment. Let's face it- we only have one body. I hope you lose inches off your waist or whatever goal you're trying to achieve.
Thanks for your support. I wonder how many people have used this and their success with it?
