    Watch the Youtube series THE SKINNY ON OBESITY with Robert Lustig M.D. It is SO helpful.

    This is all "good science" except the "go to bed hungry" one. That's just stupid. Maybe, "don't eat within 2 hours of bedtime", but that's not the same thing.

    The "no carbs after lunch" is a great rule, tough though it is. It'll put you deep into "fat-burning mode" and you'll continue to burn stored fat while you sleep. And when you get up you'll be properly ravenous, and have no problem eating a solid breakfast!

    So I have to ask, NO carbs after lunch?? So no fruit or vegis? Just about everything has carbs, so unless I'm just having some meat and dairy for dinner and afternoon snack, how is this possible?
    Love the list though. several new things for me to try. :)

    He may be crazy but I like him. Thanks for his list. Some of this I'm doing, but I'm going to try some of the rest of it.

    Thanks for listing the rules! I glanced at the book in the store, but didn't buy it. I do own his other book called "Are you ready!" though, and loved it! That's the book that jump started my weightloss!!!! Thank you Bob! And just to comment on Debbieday's post....YES Bob is easy to look at! What a hottie! lol. emoticon

    emoticon Sure he is 'crazy'...but come on -when you are that easy to look at does it matter??? ....LOL

    I have the book and though most of it is what we have heard before and knows works...'the rules' make sense to me and I'm starting to implement them ....I'm sure once I'm consistently following them my weight will show it!

    Have an awesome day!

    Good guidelines. I'm sure you will be skinnier if you follow them all. As for me... I'm going to start smaller and pick a few to follow.
