Saw Forumite Ed Berry yesterday at our bi monthly meeting....he has lost 30 lb. since April 1.. new diet. He was comparing notes with another area appraiser/realtor husband wife team. Chad had lost over 50 lb. on same diet. 900 calories a day liquid then tapering back to a more sustainable solid food diet. They are both under the direction of a doctor in Rogers, AR who is overseeing their progress... same issues. The old blood sugar was rising. He' looking good although if you peeled back his onion, there is more than 70 layers in it...I think I may try this myself as I have put back on a lot of weight after losing a bunch 2 years ago.
