I am an animal massage therapist and Registered Vet Tech and have been recommending this book as an invaluable tool to help save my clients from obesity, just as Hustler was saved from The Amazing Treat Diet. I will be giving this life-changing book as a Christmas gift!

I rescued Max, my thirteen year old Beagle, eight years ago. I brought him home unaware of his slue of medical issues. Living on the streets he had developed chronic bronchitis and heart worm disease. I found out soon after he also had epilepsy, arthritis, lower back pain, and to top it off he was extremely overweight. Luckily, we caught the heart worm disease right away and were quick enough to treat it in time. The vet said he was lucky to survive. Despite all these conditions he is the happiest dog you will ever meet! Always smiling... He has been in treatment for his ailments all his life and it's been quite a battle for me trying to get his weight down all these years. His conditions prevent him from getting the proper exercise, so I've tried everything from eliminating treats, feeding him every kind of expensive dog food, and cutting him down to less than one cup of kibbles a day! Two years ago he started to have a lot of trouble walking and getting up stairs. He also started frequently having diarrhea (always in the middle of the night!) and would leave pee stains everywhere he sat. He was in pretty bad shape and I was at a loss.
Katie and I have been close friends for twenty years, and she told me about the diet guidelines she had used for her dog, Hustler. I was very resistant at first because I assumed it would be time consuming and expensive, but she spoke with such passion about the wonderful changes in Hustler, I ultimately couldn't resist. I followed her strategy for two weeks and it was not only easy, it actually saved me money in the long run! The first thing I noticed was how well Max responded to the food - what dog wouldn't love real food! He sits there drooling while I scoop it into his dish - it cracks me up! I noticed after a few days his energy level was way up and after just one week, he literally began to run up the stairs to go for his walks! After one month his back pain, arthritis, diarrhea, and pee issues completely disappeared! He lost a total of 9lbs in 4 months! The vet was thrilled and I'm feeding him double the amount I was with his kibbles! His bronchitis is worlds better now that he has lost weight! I'm also very happy to say he is currently being weaned off his epilepsy medication since his seizures are rare these days. I feel like I have a puppy again, not a senior citizen! Cooking real food for Max has changed his life!
I don't know who is more grateful to Katie for all her advice, guidance, and most of all, friendship, myself or Max. Max is happy and healthy and loves her with all his heart!
Thank you Katie!
