Hi, Conner! Smiley

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

From there, we can start. Wink

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.

Hey!! I'm here to help my uncle. He is 50 years old and did not marry yet because of overweight.
He is in a relationship now and I was so happy as I thought she loves and cares him. But I was wrong. Two days back I saw her with another guy and I confront her. She said that she is not interested in marrying a fat guy and she is very much concerned about the appearance. I went to my uncle to say this and I was shocked to see him talking to her on phone. He is madly in love with her and he will do anything for her. I didn't say anything to him as I don't want to hurt his feelings.
Everyone in the family is avoiding him because of his overweight and I feel sorry for that. I know it is hurting him a lot but he always keeps a smiling face. I asked my uncle's girlfriend if she is ready to marry him once he loses his weight and she okay with it. She has given me 3 months time to make his shed his weight.
I'm going to start my mission in two days and I'm searching for a variety of ways to shed his weight. While researching I came across men's weight loss programs in Toronto ( http://www.harveybrooker.com/the-program/ ). I don't have much idea regarding this but I saw they have different [url=http://www.fattoskinny.com/][url=http://www.fattoskinny.com/]weight loss[/url][/url] packages. Has anyone here undergone such programs? Any advice is highly appreciated. Are there any other tips to reduce weight? Any suggestions are highly appreciated. Thanks!!

Hey y all! It's been a while. Since we've gotten this new house and have FINALLY settled down...weve both lost about 10 lbs each! That and 4 puppies later! No time to be a couch potato around here! Lol...My days generally start around 5am! And are non stop, between cleaning house and taking the puppies outside a thousand times a day! I've also gotten back on the excersize bike at least twice a week for an hour.
Feels great having our own space again, to do whatever we want!
Hope y'all are doing great!!
