Hi, Conner!  Smiley

Lets' try again...

We'd like to help you. But need more information.
What EXACTLY seems to be causing you issue?

Is it will power?
Is it temptations around you that you can't avoid?
Are there people around you that are not supportive?
Is it symptoms of "sugar detox"?

Specifics will help us, help you!  Smiley

Thanks!
Tony

Yes sir! My mom before she passed away, always had a saying..."If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always gotten."

You're mom had a good saying, Stephanie.
The words are simple, yet so true.

That's wonderful, Stephanie! Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley

Patience and persistence pays off when met with challenges.

It sure would be nice if we could just set the amount of weight to lose, the time to lose it, and let things roll. But sadly, it just doesn't work like that.

But, the FTS lifestyle is the next best thing to it.
We get to eat very, very well. And if we stick with it, we lose our excess weight.

You can't make a person lose weight.
It has to come from within.
I would suggest he see a counselor, some people overeat
To punish themselves.
I would also suggest he not go any further in the relationship.
Get him help ASAP. Obviously he has low self esteem and need to be built up. Good luck

Hello, Lauren! Smiley

I'm sorry to hear of your uncle's experience.
He's certainly not the first to be ostracized for his weight.
Like most of us here, I too was one too.

Trying to follow two different programs will usually lead to failure.
This is because they often have contradictory instruction, or more often,
take you into directions that are impossible to follow at the same time.

I cannot speak with any expertise to the Brooker program.
Except to say that portion control is also a part of the FTS lifestyle.
But that is where I see the common ground ending.

That bowl of pasta pictured on the site is a NO NO no matter what else is with it!
Pasta is LOADED with digestible grain starches (carbs).
Our bodies see starches no differently than sugar because they both end up blood glucose, then fat. If you any read Doug's books, you'll understand why.

And also that unlike the Brooker program, we REPLACE the same foods that made us fat and not DEPRIVE ourselves. We have our own versions of delicious cheesecakes, brownies, mashed potato replacements, etc.. We have no prescribed "eat so much of this or that". It is not natural for us to live in such a restricted way for a long time.

FTS is how I've been able to VERY comfortably keep living this way since August 10, 2010. And have NEVER looked back! Deprivation is what causes diets to fail. Eventually, we give in and gain back all the weight we've lost, plus more.

Look around this website, especially at our recipe sections.
And check out Doug's book for more detailed information.

This lifestyle took me from a place where my doc gave me a few years to live,
to a very happy, energetic, and healthy man entering his Golden Years!  Smiley Smiley Smiley

I'm enjoying the low carb diet and being in ketosis but my workouts are suffering because of it. Does anyone here eat carbs before a workout?

Hi, Terrance! Smiley

Barring any other health complications (hidden or otherwise), if you are living the FTS lifestyle as Doug outlined in his books, you should have MORE energy, not less.

The one exception is during "sugar detox". The period when first starting the lifestyle while the body adjusts to living with much less free-flowing glucose in the bloodstream. This normally can last anywhere from about 10 days to two weeks.

I you are in detox, be patient. The bio-mechanisms in your body are working hard to adjust. This in itself requires a LOT of energy.

But when detox has been achieved, you will notice a HUGE spike in energy levels.
At that point, the body has re-balanced itself to a healthy state.

Tony
