I am now offering to support people in this protocol and have done so quite a bit over the past few months. I myself have attended seminars and talked to people (not one or two...upwards of fifty) that have done it homeopathically and kept the weight off for years after reaching goal. I don't see any negatives at this point, just that people may need support as it's very emotional. I am a very non-interventive person. My aim is ALWAYS to support the individual and allow them to heal. This is about as interventive as I get-but I think the science makes sense as does the diet. It's a healthy, balanced diet albeit low calorie. AND it's only for a brief, predetermined period of time. It's not lifetime compensatory eating.
I have people who have completed rounds and done beautifully. Nothing long term at this point, but being off for a few months and staying at the same weight eating good quality food more consciously is pretty darned good.
You've heard people on this thread post the negative. You've heard people say it's a sham and doesn't work, and that they've known people it hasn't worked for. I would love to find someone for whom it hasn't worked so I could talk to them. Everything I've read has been fairly clear that if you follow it it DOES work. I think you can negate the positives by not engaging in the behavior modification as instructed. But, even reading this thread, has anyone posting about their experience said anything negative? Yes, it's a small audience and anecdotal but has anyone said, "I did it and it was a crock-I lost nothing."? Everyone who does it seems to get results. That's what I'm paying attention to.
