Health expert Kevin Trudeau explains natural, diet-free methods for quickly andpermanently losing fat and inches without feeling hungry. Includes advice on organic food, exercise, adding muscle and internal cleansing. Hardcover, 256 pages.
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
The Weight Loss Cure It truly looked as though no one ever read it. Thanks for your honesty!...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
This truly is a cure for weight problems. The Weight Loss Cure They Don't Want You to Know About by Kevin Trudeau has all the answers. You must purchase and use an injection of super hormones that create a pseudo pregnant state -- and this is why it works.
He guides you through purchasing the product that helps you -- but you cannot deviate from the diet at all. It is worth it. I don't have any to lose, but if I did, I would be on this plan.
It's program will take the weight off, but only the over abundance of fat. Want that cellulite gone -- it will be gone. No more flab because of hanging fat. This takes off the fat. It will not affect your muscles.
Success stories -- my friend has lost 50 pounds -- she was always very hippy with large thighs -- now she is svelte. Her husband lost 30, and is back to his college weight. They both want to dive, and the more fit you are, the safer you are.
I've always been a lot smaller than she was, but she has given me a bunch of clothes, which I really needed. Some of them will only stay up with a belt, but I'm such a casual person that it doesn't bother me.
It is costly because you do have to buy a product -- a hormone product -- and have daily injections.
My friend was never able to get rid of the hips and thighs until this program. It is amazing. I've seen the results and wanted to go on it just to get rid of the cellulite....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
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
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
The best weight loss solution ever! I have tried many ways to lose weight, and this is the ONLY one that has worked for me. It takes dedication and serious drive, but if you have the passion for fitness, this cure is for you. ...more info
WOW!!! This book is amazing! I starting following a very small portion of the recommendations in this book but still lost 7 pounds in the first week. As I add more and more concepts I see the weight falling away. Plus, I feel great while doing it and haven't felt hungry or deprived in any way. I'm amazed this book isn't more well known but I guess that's the political suppression of "them" for you! LOL...more info
The Weight Loss Cures ..... Kevin said " yada yada blah blah blah" over and over and over again. Dig deep, skip and dig some more for the answers to your quest grasshopper. Then say "I promise I wont buy debt cures, I'll borrow it"....more info
Don't waste your money I read this book after watching the informercial on it. I thought it would help, but if you can afford to have a drug injected into you like he did, (which he went overseas to get the injections) then it might be worth it. Just plain junk and a waste of money!!!!...more info
Overall important info but maybe not what one is hoping for I have read Kevin Trudeau's first book Natural Cures They Don't Want You to Know About and this Weight Loss one. He is indeed very controversial but I believe that overall, his information is critically important for a healthier life.
The information has been life changing for me. I feel better, am lighter, don't take any meds.
I think he's right about eating organic, minimally processed foods, avoiding fast foods, etc.
I think he's also correct about most of our beauty, skin, hair care products being harmful to us. I have read this information from many other sources besides him. I have done a ton of research and can recommend natural products such as Alba, Jason, Kiss My Face, etc.
I don't think that the ultimate solution that he gives for weight loss is reasonably affordable for most people, i.e. colonics and HCG injections. I think some people may be disappointed if they were truly hoping to lose weight by his suggestions for Phase 2.
Some of his suggestions are only reasonable for the wealthy. Colonics every day or every other day for 30 days! Very expensive!
I have not researched how much the medical visits and HCG shots would cost but I'd imagine it would be very expensive as well!
I would consider reading his first book initially, Natural Cures They Don't.... He gets very repetitive about the FDA, the government, and the medical establishment, but I think he's angry and frustrated...probably rightly so. It's worth reading through the redundancy. I think the information is critical and life-changing! Good luck!...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
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
Are you serious? I am really suprised at all the people who claim to have read the book and are disappointed. I may not be a huge fan of Kevin Trudeau himself but the book is valid. He doesn't claim that the HCG shots are his idea -he quotes Dr. Simeon. Is the program hard to follow? Yes, but look at the alternative? People are scared to change their lifestyle, so rather than trying they bash this book. ...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 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"!

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
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
Studies disprove this. Don't waste $$$$ The premise of this diet is that combining shots of HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) with calorie restriction prevents hunger, improves adherence to the diet, results in fat loss from problem areas. It doesn't work. Below is one of many studies that disproves Trudeau's claims. There are legitimate medical uses for HCG, and the effect of this book has been to make it difficult for patients who really need it to get it.
A quick search on Pubmed revealed many studies such as this:
1: S Afr Med J. 1990 Feb 17;77(4):185-9
Human chorionic gonadotrophin and weight loss. A double-blind, placebo-controlled trial.Bosch B, Venter I, Stewart RI, Bertram SR.
Department of Medical Physiology and Biochemistry, University of Stellenbosch, Parowvallei, CP.
Low-dose human chorionic gonadotrophin (HCG) combined with a severe diet remains a popular treatment for obesity, despite equivocal evidence of its effectiveness. In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study, the effects of HCG on weight loss were compared with placebo injections. Forty obese women (body mass index greater than 30 kg/m2) were placed on the same diet supplying 5,000 kJ per day and received daily intramuscular injections of saline or HCG, 6 days a week for 6 weeks. A psychological profile, hunger level, body circumferences, a fasting blood sample and food records were obtained at the start and end of the study, while body weight was measured weekly. Subjects receiving HCG injections showed no advantages over those on placebo in respect of any of the variables recorded. Furthermore, weight loss on our diet was similar to that on severely restricted intake. We conclude that there is no rationale for the use of HCG injections in the treatment of obesity.
Snake oil sales man sells another misleading book It's a horrible book. Luckily, I didn't have to pay for this trash as I got this book from a coworker. I wish Kevin Trudeau would stop beguiling individuals' out of their money and playing on their hopes and dreams of getting their health and weight under control. I wish I could have given this book zero stars. ...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
My Doctor actually recommended this book to me. I have read some pretty bad reviews of this book, but it seems like most of them are just completely based on skepticism rather than facts. My doctor actually told me to get this book as part of my research on the hCG diet. She said that he offers some very apprpriate, healthy suggestions for weight loss in conjunction with hCG. I have talked to people who have used the hCG diet successfully. One woman, the nurse at my doctors office, lost 34 lbs in 45 days. Another man, who is another patient of my doctor, lost 60 lbs in 45 days. Actually, in all of the studies I have read about hCG, they repeatedly state that they could find no negative side effects of the hCG, it acutally IMPROVES mood and ability to handle stress when eating a low calorie diet. This is the hormone that pregnant women's uteruses secrete; the homone that pregnancy tests detect. This hormone basically runs pregnant women's metabolism. Are pregnant women at risk of horrible side effects from having this hormone in their bodies? Check out other sources on this diet before you run screaming for the hills. All you have to do is Google hCG. [...]
My doctor has recommended this diet to patients on several occasions, and she has seen an average weight loss of 1 lb/day. But she does recommend having a hormone panel done to make sure that none of your hormones need to be corrected first. I am actually having to have my thyroid hormone corrected before she will let me start this diet.
You don't have to take shots of hCG. You can get it in a pill or in a cream that is absorbed through your skin- you rub it on the insides of your wrists....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
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
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
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.
Would you buy a product from Charlie Manson? I have the dubious distinction of growing up in his home town and attending the same high school just before Mr. Trudeau. Do a little research of your own online. He is barred for life by the FTC from selling products. His use of the Free Speech protections to continue his racket is cynical, even for him. Unlike his previous scams, people have died from this one. His latest one is preying on people about to lose their homes in a tough economy. Nice. We can all show what kind of people we are by shunning this sociopath. Buy any of his books and you are part of the problem....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
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.
don't bother One of the other reviews covered it. JUST DON'T JOIN HIS WEBSITE, I made that mistake, supposedly didn't have an account when I went back and am still being charged, they don't respond. This company is just plain stealing from credit cards people use to buy things. I found out there are many people and lawsuits already, just google. ...more info
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
Physician recommended I am a Physician and I decided to do this diet after having had two pregnancies back to back. Since my HCG levels had been so high for 2 years, I felt it would be safe for me. It is very rigid, but it is for only 6 weeks and you really do lose about a pound a day. The book really does enlighten you as to how the food industry is responsible for making Americans obese. The shots are not painful- you use very fine insulin type needles and inject the HCG yourself. You do probably need to go to a "diet clinic" to get the prescription because most doctors are not aware of the diet or safety of using HCG. You do not have to do all the vitamins or cleanses recommended in the book. Most clinics will give you the essential vitamins you need as part of their package. They may also give you the teas so don't stress about how expensive it will be to buy everything he presents in the book. If you follow the do's and don'ts in phase 4, you will not ever gain the weight back. I've seen patients get off of their blood pressure, cholesterol and diabetic medications from losing the weight. It really is all about being healthy for the rest of your life!...more info

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
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
The Weight Loss Cure Kevin Trudeau knows what he is talking about. This book explains exactly why you crave food and how to stop the cravings. It may seem like a lot of work to get to the point you need to be, but it is worth it. I cleansed my body and was amazed how many of my on going problems disappeared. I am now a truly healthy person....more info
Good and bad Not as bad as most of the reviews here. I will say this, you have to weed out the good from the bad. Kevin does make some false claims, like air conditioning is bad for you... air passes through something that is cold, and cools the air, so then heat is bad for you too. So you just have to weed out the nonsense from the facts.
However, this diet is based off of "Pounds and inches" which you can google, and get the facts from a real doctor. But here are the pros and the cons -
You will lost weight hand over fist, I've tried a few diets, and nothing works this fast! Roughly, between 1 to 2 pounds a day. Although you are limited to the foods you can eat, but I was able to rotate between the bass and the beef (sometimes with onions and garlic, depending if I went out or stayed in...lol), and the meals were really good. You have to give yourself injections everyday, but it's not as bad as you think. They give you instructions, and you don't feel a thing if you follow the directions so don't be afraid.
The other thing I notice is that there are no more food cravings. Big macs, cookies, white castles, and when I tried this stuff, it didn't taste as good as I remember. Strange, but it's a good thing.
You can't take any medications, this is because the chemistry in your body has to be perfect. I skipped phase 1 which is optional. The phase 2 takes 40 days, and phase 3 takes 21 days, so you're ready for some pancakes when you finish!... My suggestion is not to go over board after completing the diet, I did and I gained 10 lbs so far and it's been 6 weeks after I finished the diet, but with all diets you gain some of the weight back, so that's not so bad. You do have to get a checkup, and some blood work, submit the results, and fax over information, so you have to run around a little, (but it's worth it)
Overall I would recommend this diet, it does take a commitment. I did cheat a few times during phase 2, gained 4-8 lbs each time, and like I said before, you lose 2 lbs a day to get it off. That may be why I gain weight after it is all said and done. But I lost a lot of weight, even in the areas that were hard to get off like the belly fat.
I do recognize now that the belly wouldn't look so bad if I had better posture, so I'm working on that as well as working on keeping the weight off.
I've been dieting for 2 1/2 years, tried lots of diets, and this diet is for keeps. I started at 230 lbs, and 2 1/2 years later I'm down to 168 lbs. Although I still have a little belly which goes away if I force my posture into place, but people say I'm thin now, I'm a body builder..., and when I talk of a diet, they ask me if it's to bulk up (...for body building). After this diet is the first time that I started to get compliments about my size. All of which I greatly appreciate after 2 1/2 years of hard work....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
Weeding out the Crap Well, I have two thoughts about this book. If you are looking for pure content, throughout, I have to admit in that regard, the book is crap. It pains me to say that too, because I actually like Kevin Tradeau.
Truth be told, his book "Natural Cures They do not Want You to Know About" is very good, meaty, and I learned a lot. This book, is just a rip off and recycling of that book. So I agree with the people that say he is just making money, blah blah blah.
There is one chapter that decribes the HCG Weightloss Protocol, but you do not need to buy the book for that. You can just get the actual weight loss HCG protocol by googling the book on the web "Pounds and Inches" which is the actual doctors manuscript.
Kevin Tradeau gets a lot of flack for what he says, and unfortunately, his sales manship discredits him,
But if you weed out the crap from the good stuff, there is a lot of helpful information, tips and tricks to living a wholistic lifestyle which ultimately results in weightloss forever, after you kick start your weightloss with the HCG protocol.
I would not recommend this book for that though. Living wholistically is not new, and there are other sources, BETTER sources, that explain how your body flushes fat. Like the "Fat Flush Diet", is very good and very detailed and practically talks about the same types of things as Kevin's book, and that book is written by a nurse.
With all types of natural living, (ie raw food eating, organic eating, staying away from processed foods, vegan, vegetarian, low carb, basic diet and nutrition really etc.. all will talk about similar things.
Kevin Tradeau makes it sound like these things are ONE BIG SECRET!! And the government is keeping us from eating organic, and forcing drug ladden food into our mouths. We have choices. We do not have to go to the supermarket and buy TV dinners. Jeez..
We live in a capitalistic society, and most decisions are governed by greed. There is no incentive to put a true weightloss drug on the market that will not keep customers coming back, like all the other diet aids, that not only do not work, but they make you WORSE OFF!!!
A lot of the stuff in the book is common sense, I think, to anyone who eats natural food. Out of all the resources and books I've read on wholistic living, this by far, is the worst book I've ever read with regards to weightloss, nutrition, etc.. Its just poorly written, recycled information from his old book. Its like, he is just riding on the coat tails of his other book, since that book is actually decent and sold a lot. I was expecting the same caliber, but was deeply disappointed with the content, I was like, it THAT IT???. It read like it was just slapped together!
Kevin Tradeau must be getting some type of kick back from the companies that sell HCG, (through a prescription) because when asked for some guidance on the HCG, they all refer to Kevins book, or the Pounds and Inches medical manuscript, which is terribly technical and medical.
But like I said, you have to separate the crap from the good stuff. Is this the obsesity cure? I certainly think so, and no other protocol comes close to HCG. It works, and its permanent!!
I recommend the protocol, I just do not recommend this book. Or rather, I recommend reading the book, I guess, just not buying it. Speed read it so you don't waste too much valuable time.
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
M A N Y....W E I G H T....L O S S....C U R E S....I N S I D E..! THIS BOOK OFFERS ONE VERY REAL WAY TO TAKE OFF WEIGHT, AND KEEP IT
Unfortunately for most of us, though, the formula involved, (Oral Hgc), is incredibly expensive. ($149.00 for a three months supply, at Mr. Trudeau's website.) It is not, however, as expensive as the INJECTED form, which is available only at a secret German clinic, visited by the rich and famous, who wish to lose weight as much the rest of us do!
Mr. Trudeau gives the true-life history of this mysterious substance, and it reads like an international espionage thriller! Mr. Trudeau is truly brave at giving out this history -- and other secrets. He states, inside, that he USED to be part of an international, secret organization called "The Brotherhood", which gave him many privileges and perks. But one day, he decided he did not want to belong to it any more. On the cover flaps of the hardcover edition's dust-jacket, it is mentioned that Mr. Trudeau is the only person, so far, to have left this organization and stayed alive (!) -- but that doesn't mean that his life has been made easy.
By selling his books, (which have become best-sellers), and giving the general public these once hushed-up weight-loss (and other secrets), Mr. Trudea has obviously amassed a fortune....WHICH I BELIEVE HE NOT ONLY TRULY DESERVES, BUT ALSO TRULY NEEDS....for I don't think "the Brotherhood" has at all forgiven him. Mr. Trudeau -- born in Canada -- is not only a North American, but a world hero, in my estimation. But, of course, his reputation has been besmirched, damned, and dragged through the mud. I really don't think "the Brotherhood" dare kill him -- because doing so would raise his status from hero to martyr, and those who have doubts as to "The Brotherhood's" reality and existence, would then know it to be real. So -- Mr. Trudeau lives with a bad reputaion for many....but I think I know a hero when I see one! : )
In this, and his other books, Mr. Trudeau gives MANY ways to get thin. Among those I use are eating only between 6:AM and 6:PM, (I try to stop eating at noon, when I can), and adding apple cider vinegar. and flaked or ground hot red pepper, to whatever you can, and in as great, (or small) an amount as you can. I have lost 20 pounds this way, and have kept it off for a year! (In fact, one day, I ordered three 14-inch pizzas, and ate them all before noon. I ate nothing the rest of the day, (but did drink some tea, coffee-latte, and lemonade, all sweetened with Splenda, s-l-o-w-l-y.) I did NOT gain one ounce, that day!
Mr. Trudeau meantions that a certain (real), Princess has gone on the HCG protocol. She was fat -- all the European tabloids had pictures of her -- then, suddenly, she was thin! No one knew why. People in America may doubt this story -- but I've always been fascinated by royalty, have read about them, past and present....and I think I know which Princess Mr. Trudeau is talking about. She is a real person. She has had a problem with her weight that has been publicly followed. She has tried everything -- and I do mean EVERYTHING. Then, she tried HCG -- and it
worked! (And I don't know this for a fact....but I'm pretty sure, on my own, that she ALSO used the "eat before 6PM", and "add apple cider vinegar, and/or red pepper flakes", methods, and some other of Mr. Trudeau's methods, as well. Anyway, she is now delightfully slim and quite beautiful! You can be too, (handsome, of course, for men), if you follow these, and other methods listed in this, and Mr. Trudeau's other books.
If anyone doubts that Mr. Trudeau is a true hero, they should look at his latest book. It is called "DEBT CURES", and in it, he says, very truthfully, that "being in debt is a kind of slavery." Anyone who has either been in debt, or who has feared it, knows this to be very, very true. Obviously, from his book's profits, Mr. Trudeau is quite wealthy now himself. But he continues to care about us "little people". Because he considers each of us to be, not a "little person", but a human being, like himself (!)
To me, there can be no braver person, no greater hero. Read this book -- and lose weight -- like the rich and famous do -- for good, and for the rest of your life!
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
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
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.
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
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
