So I tried diet and exercise. For 6 years, I exercised up to THREE HOURS a day, ate a low-fat, high carb diet. Result - I gained 10 lbs. a year. (I stopped doing that!!!!!!!!)
I've been using non-prescription supplements to follow Dr. Rivas recommended approach for a short time. But I can already tell it's working, even though I'm using the minimum dosage of ephedra (with green tea extract and caffeine), 5-HTP, SAMe and b-complex). My constant hunger and cravings are GONE!.
This could be the solution to my problem, finally.
Only by turning off that switch in the brain we can have a breakthrough.
Makes perfect sense.
I discovered my type, that he listed in the book so chose those supplements. They were the best things I ever had when it came to controlling my cravings. I know longer desired salty things, sugar or fattening(comfort foods). I tend to eat those things when I am upset or stressed out. Not enormous amounts for a long time, but I craved them and gained weight. I not only lost weight with the supplements; I maintained the same weight. I felt and looked great!
I remember my doctor commenting that I was the exact weight I was the year before and saying that was unusual. I loved those supplements but now I cannot find them anywhere. I am not necessarily looking for them to lose weight, more to control my stress eating cravings. They really worked!! And Dr. Rivas is brilliant!
Ofcourse I was a little skeptical at first (who isn't?) But here's what makes it different:
A) You don't have to starve yourself or feel deprived
B) It's not an appetite suppressant
C) You will KEEP the weight off
D) You don't have to exercise till you drop
E) It makes your body do the work for you...no willpower required!
I have tried everything...Weight Watchers worked for me at one time but I quickly strayed from the diet and gained all of my weight back. Dr. Rivas is amazing...this is the most inspirational weight loss book I have ever read. He gives hope to those of us who have lost all hope. This is the way to do it...not those "lose 40 lbs in 3 days" plans. Dr. Rivas is a DOCTOR not just some "weight loss guru". Believe me, he KNOWS what he's talking about.
The best part about Dr. Rivas' plan is that he doesn't want 1,000 new patients....he gives you natural alternatives as an option so you can do it all on your own. I urge you to read his book...it will make SUCH a difference in your life...it sure has with mine.
