Asylum A'surfin Musings ... Show me the belly!
So after getting weirded out reading Eades' last blog post, I noticed that the paperback version of The 6 Week Cure is now available.
I absolutely cannot recommend more highly AGAINST wasting money on this book. There's absolutely no new meaningful science in this horribly written book. It's 3 shakes and a low carb meal for 2 weeks - where you detox your body of every evil chemical (caffeine and alcohol) whilst bathing it in your artificial sweetener of choice. Then once your toxins have exited your liver and are coarsing through your veins, you go donate 10% of them to your local blood bank lest they just get redeposited in your liver. What that has to do with losing actual BELLY fat is beyond me.
After two weeks of this you're supposed to eat fat fatty fat meats for two weeks with veggies. Sound familiar? This will also cause you to have so many fatty acids available to burn that you will spontaneously take up the martial arts or some such activity. After two weeks of this, you're ready for ... get this ... maintenance!
Now when the hard copy version of this came out I really wanted to give it a try. I was still hopeful that there might be some sort of different solution to my stubborn belly fat. *sigh* ... live and learn!
It was a fiasco for me, but in all honesty it worked wonders for my hubby. He went down a full pants size on 3 weeks of the shakes. But he did eat low carb wraps too and ... here's the kicker ... he wasn't a low carber!
This is ultimately a silly crash diet. Even Dr. Eades essentially called it that. So anyway, I'm not finding it now but apparently since the Eades haven't had any real patients in a goodly long time, they had to try their nonsense out on friends. Not a single one of them wanted to "out" themselves - so miraculous were the results! But in the publication of this book, two little telling things emerge. They held a contest of sorts to complile some success stories. To date I've never seen one.
1. The Eades - long time proponents of low carbohydrate diets them being - and even with Mary Dan paddling about the lake like a mad woman - got guts. Yep, take off the stupid doctor coats already because you're not administering to anyone any more for quite some time, and they had bellies! This required a "cure"!
The irony can't just be lost on me!
2. The Eades supposedly used this "cure" on themselves and felt compelled to share it with the world. Yay! The original cover is shown below:
But here's what caught my eye. Check out the new book cover:
Now - I've gotta ask. Who is that couple? Mike and Mary Dan? Nope!! Not unless they've had a lot of photoshopping done.
Why no before and afters for the original test subjects if this is such a simple plan to flatten your belly fast?
