Book ~ "The Shangri-La Diet" - Seth Roberts (2006)

From Amazon.com ~ Psychologist and professor, Seth Roberts, has spent years analyzing why most diets don't work.

After scouring the scientific literature and tirelessly testing various theories and practices, Roberts hit upon a simple, effective strategy for controlling the body's internal "set point"- that is, the thermostat that controls weight gain or loss. The solution was counterintuitive: by taking two daily servings of either extra-light olive oil or plain sugar water, he took control of his appetite, with astonishing results. Roberts lost thirty-five pounds in only three months, and he has kept it off for five years. Since then, others have replicated these results, and formal clinical trials will soon be under way.

The Shangri-La Diet includes specific instructions for tailoring the program for individual needs and goals, as well as expert tips, variations, success stories, and an illuminating explanation of how Roberts devised the diet and why it works so well. A diet program simple enough for anyone to try, The Shangri-La Diet has the potential to radically change the way we think about weight loss-and deliver remarkably easy, sustainable results.


According to this guy, all I have to do is have three tablespoons of sugar in water a day to curb my appetite. Sound wacky! I'll let you know how it goes ...

I've not heard of that one yet! hmmm....sounds too good to be true. If it doesn't work out for you(which i'm dying to know if it does) you should try the Arbonne appetite suppressant chewies and the detox tea. I use both and love them! The chewies curb my appetite and I don't think about eating anymore. you'll see the link on my blog.

I'm with everyone else, I am dying to know if this works! Sounds too good to be true, but what if it works? That'd be amazing!
