The man should know better. Jun 13, 2006
Would you trust a doctor who confused plants with animals? Mr Goglia does this when he calls yeast a bacteria. They are not the same.
Secondly, would you trust a doctor who told you to take poison. Mr Goglia does this when he advocates that you drink an ounce of water for every pound of body weight per day. I weigh 260 pounds. That means I would drink 260 ounces or 33 8-ounce glasses or over two gallons a day. Has he never heard of hyponatremia? This condition exists because you drink so much water that you deplete the sodium in your blood. Does he allow salt, the best source of sodium for most of us, in his diet? What would you guess? If you guessed "No!" you'd be correct.
This Program Works!!! Apr 14, 2006
Not only does Philip's food program work in losing extra body fat, it keeps you sane too. There is no more question about what will I eat today? Not only did I read the book, but I see Philip in his office for personal nutrition counseling. This is the only program that has EVER worked for me. Philip is a genious! I've learned more from him about nutrition than any doctor or trainer.
Best Book on Nutrition and how it affects us Mar 24, 2006
This book does not take too much time to read. It is written in a great format. First the schooling of nutrition and the different metabolic types. Next how to determine which type are you. Then it goes into the way the program works with different levels, and portions of foods to increase and get your body to the best metabolic state, and the highest metabolic temperature. (100%)I thought the most important fact was that after considerable weight loss, the program keeps adjusting to the new weight. I think it is important to point out just as Phil Goglia pointed out, weight is not as important as the "space you occupy". I recomment this book to everyone who ever wanted to know why they couldn't pack on muscle easily, or why diabetes is becoming an epidemic in this country, or why they are overweight or lack energy etc.. Will answer many questions.
One thing, I still think the water thing is too much. I had to cut it down. It kept me going to the bathroom all day!!
Not a crazy diet Nov 19, 2005
I think the science behind the ideas in this book is good and it makes sense, it's definitely NOT a typical "insane" diet, especially considering the amount of daily calories I'm supposed to ingest is about 35-40% more than what I would have doing Weight Watchers or Ediets. That is the part that I see a lot of people having difficulty with; actually raising your calories instead of lowering them(that is, if according to the test in this book your metabolism is not efficient enough). The idea is to picture your metabolism as a furnace, and you need to add fuel to the fire regularly or it sputters out and tries to conserve itself(that is by hoarding fat instead of burning it because it doesn't know when you're going to feed it again). I do wish there were more recipes instead of suggestions. It tells you exactly what types of food to eat, so it is easy to adjust to your own menu and likes, but I personally would like it if it was even more explicit and included recipes and menu's. They do have a cookbook for the program on the website which I might try out. Also, I didn't see any allotment for small amounts of fat to add, for example if you wanted a tablespoon of olive oil to your salad. It seems to be discouraged on this program but I need a bit more fat in my diet to feel satisfied. Overall this is a good low-fat program that is adjustable according to your metabolic type. If I get good results from it what I may do is tweak the percentages(I'm Fat/Protein Efficient) to 45% Protein, 30% Fat and 25% Carbs and see how that works.
This is an education in nutrition--no more fad diets!!!!!!!! Oct 22, 2003
Here it is short and simple...I never dieted my whole life. I have now reached that over 45 age and experienced some shocking changes. OK, I figured I would starve myself for awhile, etc. etc. Result? I got fatter. My husband brought me this book and my first instinct was to toss it out, but he made me promise I would read it. Here I am thirteen weeks later and two sizes smaller. I have not been hungry one day. I believe so much in this program that I encouraged my sister to buy the book and to talk to our Aunt who is almost 80 yrs old and obese. After 10 weeks my sister lost 30 lbs and 4inches around her thighs. My Aunt lost 20 lbs after just 9 weeks. She actually walked a flight of stairs that she hasn't done in years. Her doctor is ecstatic! They are both sticking to it and said it is really easy to follow this program. I won't get into all the lab results, but for example my ratio went from 3.5 to 2.7! The best thing about this program is that I feed my family everything I eat! No special grocery lists that gets so expensive. We all like the change in our nutrition. This is a realistic way of eating and exercising. This is a change of life that is attainable for anyone. Also, I have called Phillip to ask questions...he actually called me back! He is great! He really listened and helped me. Thanks, Phillip! You will be hearing from my mother and father-in-law soon!
