By the #1 New York Times bestselling author Kevin Trudeau comes the last diet you will ever need. Imagine, you will lose at least 30 pounds in 30 days...with no hunger...no exercise...and no surgery!
An absolute cure for obesity was discovered almost fifty years ago by a British medical doctor. Tens of thousands of people used this simple, inexpensive, safe medical treatment and achieved miraculous, fast, and permanent weight loss. Stubborn area fat deposits melted away. Body reshaping of the hips, thighs, buttocks, and waist was so dramatic it appeared as if the patients received liposuction! Amazingly, this medical breakthrough has been debunked, discredited, and suppressed by the American Medical Association, the Food and Drug Administration, and other medical establishments throughout the world. Now, for the first time in fifty years, this revolutionary breakthrough discovery, which permanently cures the condition of obesity, is being released to the public.
The main problems that overweight people deal with are massive, intense, constant physical hunger; food cravings and uncontrollable urges to eat when not hungry; low metabolism; and an abnormally high amount of fat stored in stubborn secure problem areas such as the hips, thighs, buttocks, and waist. This "weight loss cure protocol" has been proven to be virtually 100% successful in correcting these conditions, thus curing the individual of obesity for life! Read the fascinating true story of how this discovery was made and, more importantly, how this miracle weight loss breakthrough has been hidden from the public so that drug companies can make billions of dollars selling their expensive drug treatments and surgical procedures for obesity. You'll be amazed to read how the food manufacturers actually have a financial incentive to make you fat! This is the book that answers all the questions about why people today are continually getting fatter and fatter. The good news is this book gives you the cure that can solve your overweight condition once and for all.
stay away! Do not buy this book, it is a sham! It talks about using all kinds of herbs that are not readily available or not available at all. I bought a copy and regretted it; it is sitting here gathering dust....more info
Trudeau's a con artist Trudeau, in his book touts himself as presenting the "answer" for anyone who wants to lose weight. I found his book to be a hodge podge of information gleaned from a variety of texts. The information contained in this book is questionable and Trudeau is NO doctor or scientist. Don't waste your money!...more info
It was not that great This is not one of his better books. I appreciate that he fights the system, but this one, to me, is not well written and has an unrealistic approach. I would not recommend it....more info
Just did not work for me I knew some people who were having good success with this weight loss method, so I got the book and followed it to the letter. I thought sure it would be my answer, after not having any success with any other weight loss program. Well, it just did not work for me. I spent hundreds of dollars on the supplements, the HCG, buying all the right lotions, shampoos, makeup, deodorant, organic foods, etc. I did the Phase 1 prep, then on Phase 2 I lost only 9 pounds, after the whole thirty days of starving myself. When I went on Phase 3, I gained back 6 of the 9 pounds within 2 weeks. I honestly did not cheat, as some of my friends did and still lost the weight. I can't explain it. But I think people should know it just doesn't work for everyone. ...more info
Kevin Trudeau is a fraud The only good advice in this book is basic common sense when it comes to losing weight. From drinking more water, limiting food consumption, to *gasp* exercising and avoiding fast food, Trudeau produces these ideas as if they were his own great epiphany. Indeed, these are the only things to his "weight loss miracle" cocktail that have ever been proven to provide any real results.
He sites an outdated study done abroad, in which people lost weight injecting themselves with something that is "easily obtainable". Yup, along with the needles you'll have to buy yourself, the daily injections you'll have to give yourself, you're reduced to obtaining the liquid you're injecting into your body from less-than-credible people. No doctor will give you the shot, as Trudeau claims they will, as no doctor is foolish enough to inject you with this crap.
Go ahead, take 15 minutes and look up anything about Kevin Trudeau. You'll find nothing positive about his books, and a wealth of information on how much of a crook and liar he is.
And for the record, everyone on amazon giving him a positive review has only written one review: for Trudeau's book. I wonder if those are Trudeau's marketing lackeys......more info
SNAKE OIL!!!!!!!!!! Oh, for God's sake people......for the sake of you OWN health PLEASE search on your own before you buy into this snake oil.
A quick search of the FDA or the Journal of the American Medical Association site [...] proves that this is just rubbish. The results of 'the HCG diet' haven't been suppredded by the JAMA, they're right there for you to view yourself. And ALL of them, all the reviews, all the studies, all the trials and experiments done have all concluded the same thing.........HCG is no better than placebo.
Go read it yourself. PLEASE! before you start filling yourself with hormones. Use some cautious intelligence on this one.....is anyone surprised that you'll lose weight if you only eat 500 calories a day? Your starving yourself. Don't fall for it....more info
The Truth From Experience There is a targeted campaign against Kevin Trudeau because he is a whistleblower on the lies that big corporations (especially food & pharma) perpetuate to make billions! Why is it ok for these companies to lie, cheat, steal and kill for money, but Kevin is attacked for telling the truth to make a living? There is something seriously wrong here! I have read the Natural Cures books 1 & 2 and The Weight Loss Cure and I can tell you they have ABSOLUTELY changed my life! I have flown to Argentina to do the Oral hCG method that Kevin mentions at the back of the book, which is run by the worlds most authorative medical practioner on the method and I can tell you that it has been successful beyond my wildest hopes and I will be going back to complete my weight loss, which is no easy feat as I live in S.E. Asia. Those blasting Kevin's recommendations are taking things out of context, he states it is often impossible to do all the recommendations but do as many as you can! Doing one colonic is better than none! Since reading Kevin's books and following just some of his recommendations, I have lost a total of 52 lbs and 10 inches off my waistline, I have never felt more healthy! I was borderline diabetic, suffered from high blood pressure, gout and water retention in my ankles, NO MORE, all is now normal! Thank you Kevin for changing my life for the better! I am living proof that your methods work where big pharma and diet products have failed. Maybe Kevin has a dubious past, so what? It is nothing compared to the big corporations and what they get away with! ...more info
Eye-roll My husband and I bought this at a library sale, and oh man, am I glad I only blew $2 on this, which is about what it is worth in entertainment value.
In case you are wondering what you are missing, here is my own weightloss cure, inspired by the examples in this book:
Coat the bottom of a pan with non-stick cooking spray, and add a cup of frozen stir-fry vegatables. Cook on the stove at medium heat. Seperate six organic eggs, and add the whites and two of the yolks. (You can use the other four yolks as a pre-shampoo that works miracles on dry hair.) Contintue to cook over medium heat, adding seasalt, freshly ground pepper, and a pinch of bald eagle brains. Eat nothing else for six months.
Please note that bald eagle brain is very rare in the states and is in fact illegal, but it can be bought quite easily in parts of Asia. You can sneak it through customs if you transport it in a bottle marked "Talcum Powder" (Just don't let any of the dogs sniff it. If you hear barking, run like the dickens and hope they don't shoot you.) Bald eagle brains only hold their potency for five weeks, so you may want to get multiple passports so that TSA doesn't mistake you for a sex tourist.
If you absolutely can not get bald eagle brain, you will still lose weight initially, but a diet of nothing but eggs and veggies will probably make you so crazy that you will inevitable binge on Ben & Jerry's gain more weight than you lost, or else you'll murder one of your loved ones. So please move heaven and earth to get some, for goodness sake. In a pinch you can use powdered unicorn horn, but it is not as effective.
Don't bother writing to your congressman asking him to legalize bald eagle brain. He's part of the vast conspiracy to keep you fat. The government, the mafia, the church: they're all in on it! Everyone is fat, and through no fault of their own! That one cousin that you hate because she is so skinny? She's is really a cyborg....more info
Kevin Schmevin I jumped at this book too, after all it's cheap and easily done with products you have at home in your cabinets, right ? I wish I would have checked out this guys "PAST" before I made the purchase. When I got the book, I was so excited, read it, then I was dismayed. I sent the 'company' an email requesting a return authorization number (as you only have 14 days to return it). After sending them 6 requests for that number and 13.5 days LATER, I finally got the return number, but it was too late to get my money back. I pitched this book into my fireplace and never regretted burning it, only regretted buying it. And as for those injections ? My weight loss doctor will inject you with them, but you have to follow an extremely strict diet along with those injections. 500 calories per day strict !! One lady lost 38 pounds in 2 weeks. Yikes !!! No thank you. (on a scarier note...my doctor will also prescribe for you PHEN-PHEN or REDUX) I rate Kevin AND my doctor at a minus 10. ...more info
Not worth the money I paid for it I thikn Kevin Trudeau spends more time selling himself in this book than he does on the actual content. For me it was a waste of money. I know others recommend it and I guess it just depends on how a person likes to gain information.
If you really want to know about HCG and how it is helping thousands of individuals lose weight you can join one of the many free Yahoo groups that discuss it and download Dr. Simeon's protocol outlining the diet for free from there.
weight loss cure This is the most useless book on the market. The things you need to go on these diets are things you would never ever find or would do to yourself. Don't bother with this book....more info
A brand new me! I am very surprised by all those here in search of a magic bullet. Don't you realize there isn't one! I have read Dr. Simeon's original manuscript and I am currently taking HCG that I received from a licensed physician. IT WORKS! I feel great! I have lost 20 lbs in 3 weeks. I've got 3 weeks to go. I would also recommend that those interested purchase the book titled "HCG Weight Loss Cure Guide" by Pounds and Inches Away, LLC because it's more streamlined than Trudeau's book. For me it's not just about weight loss - it's about fat loss! I've lost inches and reshaped my body. I found a doctor that prescribes HCG in Aurora, IL - I live about 40 minutes away. I only had to see him twice. Once for a consultation and then for a 2 week follow-up. I know that everyone isn't comfortable with the idea of a self-injection. Trust me...I'd take this over popping pills anytime. It's quick and painless. I took Phentermine years ago which is FDA approved and was prescribed by my primary care physician. The experience is like night and day. I had insomnia, dry mouth, jitters, etc. - it was awful and I loss the wrong type of fat.
Anyway, my HCG doctor was referred by a colonic therapist I found online. Colonics are important too but not absolutely necessary for success. The honest truth is that very few people can actually follow the 50+ suggestions in Phase 1 of Trudeau's book - but that's NOT the point. The point is to make some of the changes so you can live a healthier lifestyle AFTER losing weight on HCG. There are things I will absolutely NOT do since reading this book - like eat anything with High Fructose Corn Syrup or MSG or Trans Fat. I also ensure that I workout daily and I don't eat out much! Shopping at Whole Foods may be more expensive but the cost has been offset by preparing meals at home! One of the greatest benefits is that I'm no longer drinking alcohol and eating sugar - I would suggest that you Google "Sugar Dangers".
I don't understand how anyone can claim that a hormone (HCG is a hormone not drug) is dangerous and yet they poison their bodies with HFCS, MSG and hormones injected in cows. Not to mention man-made chemicals in our food and toxins in our cleaning supplies. Educate yourself! Dr. Simeons graduated Summa cum laude - he's brilliant. This is HIS protocol - not Trudeau's - although I think Trudeau's book is helpful because of the dangers we face today that weren't present when Dr. Simeons found this cure. This approach simply builds on what I already knew - refined, processed foods are bad for you. If it doesn't come from a plant, animal or fish - you're body doesn't need it! ...more info
I've lost 8lbs in 5 days!! I work in Medicine and this is it!! WOW!! Talk about a lot of negative feedback on a book, this one is it!! I just wanted to give my 2 sense because I think that people looking at purchasing this book should know the facts.
1. Yes some of Kevin's idea's about avoiding a/c and microwaves is over the top.
2. Yes in this day in age eating ALL organic food is VERY difficult and VERY expensive (trust me I've tried).
HOWEVER, this diet along with the HCG supplement works! It works really, really well. I know, I know I've tried everything under the sun too. I've lost 8lbs in 5 days and I feel FABULOUS!! I have so much energy and I am sleeping good, it's like a whole new me!
You can order the injectable or SL (Sublingual - under the tongue) HCG online if you wish to follow the protocol without spending a ton of $$ seeing a physician. However, make sure you follow the diet in the book to a T!
Now as far as the diet goes, yes I felt the same way about 500 calories and yes the 1st 2 days were difficult, but now I feel awesome!! I did go through a local Dr for my initial HCG, but will order online in the future. I work in Cardiology and the Drs their are utilizing me as their Guinie Pig.
This product was shipped immediately, it was received in very good condition and has been vital to the success of the diet that I have embarked upon. I would definitely order from this particular venue again....more info
I am now disappointed in Trudeau The perspective of a natural healing oriented nurse:
Okay...I read his other two books. At first thought he was a little "informmercialish" but applauded him for seeking more natural cures for things. In the other books, he advocates using home remedies before taking the prescription medications prescribed by MDs. This I agree with. He totally bashes the pharmaceutical companies and FDA for all these medications which, according to Trudeau, don't really work and are even dangerous.
Now he is advocating the use of HCG, a pregnancy hormone as a way to lose weight???? I would dare bet after years of research we find out that, like long term exposure to all hormones, HCG does more damage than good.
Now I am convinved that Trudeau is a sensationalist all about making the most money he can off his books. He is not interested in what is safe, healthy, and what works. Sorry people, this guy is not the man he pretends to be and following the HCG diet could be hazardous to your health.
I will stick to the good old fashioned eating more fruits, vegetables and whole grains, decreasing meat and fats. The only way to healthily lose weight.
I guess he still is the ex convict man that he used to be (see his other books-he actually admits to be imprisoned) ...more info
insane Kevin is insane. I checked this book out at the local library to see what all the hoopla of his infomericals was about. He seems to have the answer for everything these days, health, finances, weight loss. He may have had on high colonic enema too many. He is insane....more info
The critics of this book are uneducated I had the same reaction when I read this book, "It's unrealistic!" "Where am I going to get HcG?"
But then I spent about a year researching it. It turns out there is a holistic D.O. that does weekly lectures at a local healthfood store and he helps people do this program. It's expensive $1200 for the 40 day program, but it works. I've seen it work now for close to ten people who were really fat and unhealthy. You should see them now. It does work! HcG is not impossible to get. I just ordered 5 amps online through a canadian pharamacy for about $100 and that will last me throughout the entire program. I know it's hard to comprehend a lot of what Kevin Trudeau says, but just because you can't comprehend it does not mean it's not true. This book and program is NOT impossible. Do some reasearch and take your time. Don't simply discredit it because YOU don't think it's doable. My mom did it in January and she's never looked better, not even when she was in high school. It's possible AND it's easy. ...more info
This program is sheer genius I am a health-care provider. I received this book from a patient. I read it. I did more follow-up research using websites in the book. I was able to legally and safely procure the Hcg needed for the protocol in the U.S.By U.S. doctors. I have done two 40 day rounds of the protocol. I have personally lost 63 pounds and have gone down 6 clothing sizes. Dr. Simeon was a genius. Kevin Trudeau has a lot of courage, once again, going against the tide....Bravo!!! This information and protocol would have saved the lives of both my parents. I have a new body, a new metabolism, and a new lease on life! Kevin's book and protocol is a little more difficult to totally follow than The original protocol. "Pounds and Inches"by Dr. Simeon, yet he makes excellent sense given the environmental toxins and tainted food we consume. I have helped personally over 50 people successfully navigate through this amazing protocol....it works....exactly the way Trudeau says it does! I am not a millionaire by the way.... The whole experience cost less than 1000.00 dollars. I spent far more on Jenny C.,Weight watchers and nutri-systems, with far less results!...more info
What can Trudeau sell you this week?? Do your homework on the gentleman before you buy or get hooked into anything that has anything to do with him
Your health is priceless and shouldn't be turned over to this character...more info
This Is The Cure! I've been doing the protocols and everything I possibly could on this diet. and the results have been nothing short of amazing. If money is a problem then I geuss really have to ask yourself if you really want to lose the weight? I lost 70 pounds in nine months. This is the first diet that made sense and felt good while doing it. The closer you can follow his directions the faster the results will be. As for Kevin Trudeau's reputation I think you again have to ask yourself how much do you want what he offers? He offers more than Dr Simeons protocol he fully understands and has dealt with these situations in his life and has used these techniques and continues to use these techniques and it works great for him. But the fact remains if you have a negative view of losing weight you will never lose weight no matter what you try. Until you believe you'll lose weight you will fail....more info
This program works! I'm halfway through the program now and will do one more round of the hcg. I lost half a pound a day for a total of 15 pounds. The book says most people lose a pound a day and this seems to be accurate for the very obese women and men also. The less you have to lose, the less poundage/day. Since my weight was "stuck" no matter what I did, I was thrilled to find something that works, is safe and is quite easy to do. Now on on the final phase I'm eating pretty much whatever I like and am not gaining.
The detox Phase 1 can be quite expensive so I condensed it down to 6 things and added one additional one he doesn't mention since it cleans all the organs, removes heavy metals and toxins and reduces the cost dramatically. Feel free to email me for the list: email@example.com. I recently met Kevin at a Health Expo and he's interested to put this in his next edition. We only had a very brief conversation but I must say he sure looks good & healthy & slim!
During the actual hcg phase no detox should be done but we have added the NCD to this with excellent results. As fat is dumped into the bloodstream so are toxins so this makes it 100% safe. The low calories ensure that the liver isn't overburdened. Those who totally skip Phase One will get headachy and sick. I cannot emphasize enough how important this is. The original Dr. Simeons protocol was developed at a time when the world and our bodies were much cleaner and this step wasn't necessary.
Big thanks to Kevin for risking his neck once again to bring us this valuable "cure"!

wake up people What you don't understand, you criticize. Kevin is a brilliant man. He was never convicted of a felony. The program is not unrealistic. Is it better to take some prescription drug that will cause more harm in the long run. It is not required to take all the supplements or do all of the things that he suggests. They are suggestions! I did the program. I did not take all the costly supplements or drink the costly tea. People like to defend their own bad habits. this is about getting healthy. People will say, "I can't do that." Because they don't want to give up the diet sodas or chips or whatever. HCG is not a drug, it is a hormone that is taken in extremely small doses. You inject yourself. The needle is so thin that you don't even feel it. The first time is scary, but after that it is no big deal. There were never any cravings. In 35 days, I lost 30 lbs. Do you realize the health benefits of losing 30 lbs. It is perfectly safe and we have been brainwashed to think that everything has to be a prescription written by a doctor. The pharmaceutical companies are making a fortune on people who are overweight. That is why they try desperately to debunk Kevin. He is a man who is telling the truth and people don't like hearing the truth so they go along with the negative remarks. You don't have to get the hcg from the place that is recommended and you can purchase it for much less elsewhere. I think the man is one of the few out there that definitely can be trusted.
OK This is not for everyone, but the information is there if you know how to pull it out and put it together for yourself. He uses his web site as a way to buy the products inculding the HCG Shots, but still gives you other avenues as where to purchase what you need.
It works I have tried it (using homeopathics not shots). The biggest part of all of it is the Detox! Kevin keeps saying it is easy, it is not. With that said the secret to it is keeping is simple.
hard to implement the diet outline takes medical facilites and money to implement. Out of most people's capabilities. ...more info
The Weight Loss Cure I did the diet. It was GREAT. The book was informative, but a lot of whining about the FDA and the government. But it also had a lot of good information.
If you want to loss wait fast and follow the rules. Believe me it WORKS!
But you cannot (read my lips/words) cannot do it half way. You must do what it says and go to a good health care provider to get the injections....more info
Kevin is right!!! I bought this book after reading it at a person's house.I loss 24lbs. in 25 days with no exercise!!! and Ive kept it off for 4 months now. My opinion with every one bad mouthing Trudeau is that they havent tried it, I know for a fact if they did they would be happy with the results....more info
This is FOR REAL! I've been on the HCG diet for two weeks now and I've lost 12 lbs. I have lost 3 inches off of my waist and I am beginning to look fabulous in my clothes again.
This diet takes real committment and it should change the way you see and eat food for the rest of your life following the diet. For instance, 4 oz of meat/protein is all you should have as a serving at mealtime. And you should be prepared to pretty much cut most fat out of your diet and only use 'carbs' as condiments.
But let me tell you - this diet is REAL, it's accessible, and it WORKS! In 2 weeks, I have lost 12 lbs, my husband has lost 15, and each of his parents has lost about 15 as well. We all feel great, we have energy as long as we stay hydrated, and we give ourselves the shots because they are painless and you can't even really feel it. Follow the rules and be committed and you'll do great!...more info
The Weight Loss Cure by Kevin Trudeau I got his two books hoping he had something that I could really use but there wasn't. His book is a joke. There was one thing that was a help but a person can not afford to get it. Who knows if it would really work if a person could afford that one kind of product he spoke of. He rambles on alot in his two books. To me it was a waste of money & my sister thought so to. I do not recommend any of his books to anyone. He is getting rich at our expense....more info

The Weight Loss Cure The book does a good job of explaining the problems with our food and drug industry today. My husband has seen his ads and believes he's just out to make money. I have diabetes and I'm following his advise and feel much better and my diabetes is getting better. ...more info
IT WORKS!!! This book gives important resources and tips that might otherwise elude you! My wife has lost 20lbs(without any exercise) so far in 30 days(and she even forgot to take HCG on 1 day). We had never heard of HCG, so the book provided valuable info to get us started. She has 10 more days to go on the program!...more info
It's worth reading - a rare book that identifies the problem, but it fails to find the solution This book comes tantalizingly close to getting it right, but it falls short. I was willing to overlook lots of spelling and grammar mistakes, and even the author's flaky paranoia, because he did correctly recognize the hypothalamus as the source of many of our ailments. Unfortunately, instead of coming up with sensible ways to help the hypothalamus heal, he just recommends using a bizarre combination of supplements and injections, all of which sound like they will further damage the hypothalamus. If the author is correct (and he is) that the hypothalamus gets messed up because of artificial substances in our food, then the solution should be simple: eat only fresh, raw organic fruits and vegetables. The author does recommend that, but then he spoils everything by adding back in tons of artificial junk. Oh, and he fails to adequately explain how the hypothalamus works. Bottom line: the book has some good ideas, and it is worth reading (partly for the kooky entertainment value), but don't take any of his advice about injections and supplements. And next time he should have a proofreader so he doesn't seem so illiterate....more info
Eleviating Ignorance I just heard about Kevin Trudeau and I really could care less about his past. All that I am concerned is about is that the F.C.C. does not dispute the claims in his book, on how well his method works. The F.C.C. is suing Kevin Trudeau for saying how it is 'easy' in this book. So yes, I am going to buy this book but not because of the author. I am buying it cause the government is trying it's best to silence him in a very unethical, and immoral, way....more info
This really works! I did a lot of research on this book before doing the diet. There is A LOT of controversy. Let me tell you that this diet really works. It is costly (probably $800 or so), but it works and you keep it off. It has been a year, and I lost 50 pounds, and over 30 inches (9" in my waste alone)! I am the thinnest and healthiest I have ever been, and can't tell you the last time I have been sick or had a headache. The HCG shots are easy to do, and are not bad for you. In fact, when I was pregnant, I had to give myself HCG shots during the first trimester. Good Luck!...more info
This diet protocol really works! Take it from someone who's done it successfully! Money well spent! Trudeau is a little redundant, but after sifting through this overwhelming amount of information you're going to have a system that works like nothing you've tried before. Forget all the negative reviews and listen to someone who has done this protocol successfully. Get the book and believe in this method; you will succeed!...more info
Oh, no. Please, God save you if you are gullible enough to buy something by Kevin Trudeau. If the fact that Kevin Trudeau is a convicted felon and has NO professional training or licensure in healthcare is NOT a big red flag for you, then go ahead and buy this book. Otherwise, please exercise some common sense and steer clear of this 21st century snake oil salesman....more info
Good product-bad book The first time I read this book I had already sworn not to spend one more dime on any weight-loss product ever again, including books, so I took it out of the library. Like most, I read the book and thought OK, so where do you get hcg injections if they're not legal in the USA. Of course if you subscribe to his website (an additional $10 a month) he will tell you. No Thanks!
I recently saw a naturopathic physician who recommended hcg therapy for weight loss. She told me she had several patients who used it and she used it herself with fantastic results. She said the product is exactly what he wrote about in his book. She told me she would support me and told me how to go about getting it. The thing is, he sounds so crazy it's hard to believe anything he writes. He sounds like he needs to be locked up in a mental institution!...more info
The Weight Loss Cure It truly looked as though no one ever read it. Thanks for your honesty!...more info
The Weight Loss Cure They Don't Want You to Know About The book was very disappointing. The goals in the diet were unrealistic!High Colonic flushes of the large bowel on a daily basis would wash the important chemistries, (salts and minerals) right out of the body. The "secret drugs" are unattainable. I think even a medical doctor would hesitate to prescribe these kinds of drugs. The author repeatedly expounds on "his personal achievements, and the rheteric became rather dull and uninteresting after the first dozen repetitions.
I would not recommend this book to anyone. Better to buy an Adkin's program, The South Beach Diet book or the Fat Resistant Diet book where you don't fool around with high colonic large bowel flushes....more info
Worth checking out from library but not paying for it.. I checked this book out at the local library - glad I didn't actually pay for it. I thought it was interesting and would probably try the diet if I was obese but only having 15 pounds to lose I'm not going to risk it with the shots and STRICT diet. So just check it out at your library and skip right to the chapters where he talks about the diet......more info
DON'T BOTHER WITH THIS RUBBISH!!! If you really want to lose weight, pick up a copy of "BODY FOR LIFE: 12 WEEKS TO MENTAL AND PHYSICAL STRENGTH" by Bob Phillips. I'm currently on his program and it really works!! Trust me. ...more info
Save your money I was feeling very bad about my weight and on the TV comes this wonderful sales person. Nice to look at to. So I ordered the book. Once into it I found that this book has nothing I can follow beginning with injections. Ok so it says you don't have to do the injections but then you won't succeed. So then why did I buy it. The book cost me over $30 with shipping. Then I found myself signed up for this news letter that I spend alot time on the phone trying to cancel. There are too many people trying to make a buck on us the over weight people looking for something to work. Save your money and buy a book that will really help. Good luck to you. ...more info
Great Source Book Trudeau put together a lot of excellent information if you are interested in losing weight and living a healthier life. From websites to books to product suggestions, he has compiled a fount of resources for speeding up your metabolism and curing obesity.
HCG is a fantastic remedy for obesity. It is not for the faint of heart and requires a commitment to want to lose weight forever by changing your metabolism. There is nothing dangerous about it - quite the opposite.
This book has helped me finding products, remedies and ideas for changing my life for the better. If you want to know more about hCG inform yourself from other sources as well. ...more info
Eat Trudeau's book itself - it's healthier! I can't believe that people are still buying this load of recycled rubbish! Trudeau is a well-known con-man from way back, but maybe after this latest judicial ruling, he won't be so confidant!
-- A federal judge has banned Kevin Trudeau from infomercials in which
he has an interest for three years and ordered him to pay $5,173,000
in profits from his book, "The Weight Loss Cure 'They' Don't Want You
to Know About."
The ruling confirms an earlier contempt finding against Trudeau -- the
second time he has been found in contempt of court in the past four
years. In several infomercials, Trudeau claimed that the plan
outlined in the book is easy to do, can be done at home, and
ultimately allows readers to eat whatever they want. However, the
book actually describes a complex plan that requires severe dieting,
daily injections of a prescription drug that consumers cannot easily
get, and lifelong dietary restrictions.
In a 2004 order settling FTC charges that he had falsely claimed that his calcium product could cure cancer and other serious diseases, Trudeau was banned from using infomercials to sell any product, service, or program except for books and and other publications.
Most folks would be better off gently sauteing this book in olive oil, chopped onion, garlic and ground black pepper and eating it -- mainly for its high fibre content. What could be healthier?
Book hits mark for most part For the most part, Trudeau hits the mark with this 'cure.'
I'm a 360-pound man and have always had troubles controlling my appetite and for some reason, when I started the HCG shots, I started noticing immediately that I didn't get the same intense pleasure out of eating. It almost seemed like it was re-centering something in my mind, I can't put my finger on it.
The results I've seen from this diet have been nothing short of amazing. I have lost close to 25 pounds in the first eight days of it. I've lost about a half inch around my neck and about three inches around my waist.
It cost me about $300 to get started on the shots and the needles and other suplements. The needles are thin, almost like acupuncture needles. My doctor is administering the protocal, so I got a prescription for an appetite suppressant for the first few days of the diet and for when I knew I was going into situations where I would be tempted to cheat.
I give a thumbs up to the cure itself. But man, KT has made so much money that he has absolutely no clue how the rest of us live. I'm not doing a colonic. I can't afford to go see a masseuse three times a week. I don't live in Hollywood for Pete's sake.
KT deserves credit for shining the light on this cure and for that, he's done a great service to everyone.
But also keep in mind, one of the oldest tricks in politics is to accuse your opponent of doing what you're doing. KT is accusing everyone in the government and elsewhere of profiteering on and causing other peoples' weight troubles. Keep in mind, KT is making money on this book too. What sells better? A book of just facts that tell you how to get the most out of the diet? Or a book of facts, along with a conspiracy theory or two?
Anyway, it's a useful reference book. It's definitely worth picking up. But man, don't go crazy trying to do all 80 of the things he lists or how many there are. You don't need it. You'll just drive yourself crazy, and broke.
You don't need 1,000 dollars a month to do this diet.
All you need are the injections, will power and to drink a bunch of water. Also, limit the artificial sweeteners, they'll make you retain water and slow your progress.
Dramatic weight loss After reading this book three times, I finally decided to give it a try. Well, my weight loss was absolutely fabulous. Everything that Kevin said was in fact true. Yeah, it is a 500 calorie a day diet, but you do not get hungry. What you do feel is that you miss food. But, if you drink the teas recommended, they give you energy, speed up your metabolism and give you a sense of wellness. You can actually taste the medicinal properties in them. What I found interesting is that in those six weeks, I lost about 30lbs. It was very dramatic because all my friends talked about how much of my stomach was gone, but most importantly how healthy that I looked. About the same time, I noticed coworkers loosing weight. And, as Kevin mentioned in the book, they lost structural fat and not excess fat as I did. They did not look well to me. But I looked fabulous. At the end of the six weeks, interestingly enough I had no desire to binge. I did not run for the chocolate. I still eat it, but I truly made a lifestyle change. To date, I have managed to loose 65 lbs. Once you understand WHY you are fat, it is far easier to loose it. Kudos to Kevin.
To get the hCG shots that he recommends, you can find out where to get it on his website. I got mine from a pharmacy in Florida....more info
A totally valid weight loss techniwue I'm very surprised by the bad reviews of this book. Regardless of what anyone might think about Mr. Trudeau personally, he's doing us an incredible favor by getting the word out about the HCG diet. My husband and I are on it, and three of our friends have finished it. We've all had amazing results. I haven't felt this good in...a long time! It is NOT true that you need to go to Europe for the supplies, you can get them on the Internet or through one of the many doctors who support this protocol. It is, of course, cheaper through the Internet--our total out of pocket cost has been around $150 for the two of us. You'll save a ton of money on food as well, since you won't be going out for meals for 40 days!
As with any idea, an intelligent reader will take the information in this book and do some additional research to validate it for themselves. I've scoured the Internet and found only positive reviews from people who have actually done the diet. Interestingly, the only group trying to stop it is the government. The proof is in the pudding, people....more info
It works! Although I didn't read this particular book of Kevin's, I did do the diet last spring. I got all my supplies from a naturopathic doctor in WA(many alternative clinics in the US promote the HCG diet so supplies are available)and went on the diet for a half dose of 21 shots. I lost 16 lbs. in those 21 days, plus 4 lbs. I put on during my loading days. This is the only diet that has worked for me! I highly recommend it as it's described in this book and plan to go on it again after the holidays this year. While I didn't read Kevin's description of the diet, I've read many other accounts of the HCG diet and can certainly attest to the fact it works! If this is the only chance you have to read about it, buy this book. Then go on-line to research how to find supplies and/or a doctor to work with....more info
Kevin Trudeau sucks What a boring book. He says the same things OVER and OVER again, chapter to chapter. Very badly written. Actually, it reads as though it were transcribed from several of his lectures and infomercials. The secret he reveals to the world includes the facts that you have to refrain from all prescription meds while on the "protocol" (he maintains it's NOT a diet ... yeah, sure), and (get this) take daily injections with a compound normally present in pregnant women. Of course, a woman's body, even if starving, can still produce a healthy baby, because it draws from her store of resources, including body fat. It's also basically a 'set point' approach. Nothing new here, not to mention unnecessarily severe. I think I'll skip this one, folks. Still, I'm sort of glad I read it, if only to confirm for myself what I've heard about this guy....more info
Almost a rip off !! I did not care for this book, it was not at all what I wanted. The different things you would have to do to lose weight is a far cry from being logical. ...more info
