Suzanne - Two rules
This book could be summed up in one paragraph. Eat fewer than 15 gms. of sugar. Eat protein (and fat). Eat six servings of carbs. Eat fiber. Will it work? Yes. Do you need to spend $20 to know this? No way. Most of the products (or equivalents) are not too tough to find. I started purchasing the Almond Breeze milk a few months ago and found that it's not too much more than regular milk. It's a little more, but I end up saving money on it because it doesn't spoil as quickly as skim milk so I haven't thrown any out. To the reviewer to wasn't happy about eating "religious" bread...you don't have to go to Mars for it. (or spend $5 to have it shipped.) If you have access to a decent health food store, you can find the Ezekiel 9 bread. And talk with your local grocer. Often they are willing to order products. At least that has been my experience. The Belly Fat program seems to leave room for substitutions. I know I have been successful when I've limited my sugar intake--sugar is very addictive for me. Overall, the program makes sense. I like the fact that Cruise stresses not dieting and making smart choices a life style. That's great counsel regardless. Exercise should be a lifestyle. So should drinking enough water, getting enough sleep, and living a balanced life. I'm embarassed to think I need to buy a book to tell me that.
mydre - Does not work!
I have been taking Amerben for several months now. At first I thought it was helping with my hot flashes but noticed weight gain even though I exercise 4-5 times a week and eat healthy (I have been living this exercise/eating routine for 25+ years). I decided to read the "1 star" reviews and read that others have experienced weight gain as well even though they too have been exercising and eating healthy. I have since stopped taking Amberen and my hot flashes are at the same level they were when I was taking it! I am monitoring my weight (it's only been a few days) to see if the scale goes down now since I stopped. This product is a sham in my humble opinion!
Stephen V. Pereira - Cognitive dissonance best characterizes this product and the advertising
Cognitive dissonance best characterizes this product and the advertising. Nothing not even the purported green color stuck. After two weeks of watering diligently and following the instructions; nothing has happened. What a pity really!!
Jean Carrafiello - Love this stuff and so much nicer to take one ...
Love this stuff and so much nicer to take one small pill than drink many glasses of juice (sugar) per day. All the benefits without the sugar!
willk - Not Bad For price
Like many others, I purchased this being completely done with paying as much as i did for years for the Gillette replacement cartridges. It's absurd.
