The 6 Week Cure for the Middle Aged Middle



Well, it is time for me to jump on the bandwagon and give a review of this new book.

This book is authored in two parts. The first part being the science or gobbedely gook of their new plan. Part Deux teaches about the "Cure". In the beginning, I was a little disappointed about all the science in the first half as I was giddy to get to the actual plan. However, After reading the simplicity of the plan I went back through the science to try to better understand how the "Cure" works and why.

The plan is really geared to those that have too much visceral fat. Meaning those thin and larger people alike that have fat in the wrong place around the middle. There are some excellent resources and insight and some really good quoteable material to make the reading enjoyable and informative.

What does the plan do? In the beginning, the plans aim is to clean out and defat the liver, to restore it to pristine condition. The extra benefits include weight loss but healthiest benefit is the reduction of visceral vat. Continuing with the plan will lead to a healthier showing on blood work up tests ie good cholesterol up bad cholesterol down and an overall balancing of your blood health markers.

Here are some of my favorite quotes!

"...doing the same thing over and over again and expecting the different result is the definition of insanity."

"This is not so much a weight-loss book as a body-rehabilitation plan that will trim the fat from your middle and leave your lean body stronger."

"-that hormonal signals influence fat stores more than exercise or calories."

This book was informative and packed with insight, and "real life" usable material. IF you have not read it.. pick up a copy today. For those that are looking to get back on track or those that need to lose visceral fat otherwise known as the "Middle aged middle" this book may work for you. First thing I would recomend is finding out if you have an overbundance of visceral fat. Talk with your medical professional or simply follow the self test as outlined in the book to see what is in your middle!

Nice review. Thanks!

Are you planning on following the plan as it's laid out in the book?

If so, best of luck! I'll be watching and (hopefully) learning!

Thanks Harry! hmmm I plan on following the plan but I am trying to figure out the timing of when to start.

See I have kinda hit a rough patch and the scale isn't really moving.. I have upped my exercise..that I had stopped.

Under the advice of a good friend I have implimented a bi-weekly refeed day. I did my first one a couple of days ago..

This is a refeed day and not a bing day..ie I have 1800 calories to play with.. but I will not eat sweets.. but things like homemade pasta, buckwheat noodles, lasagna with sugarless sauces etc..even a bowl of rice once or twice in that day..

Hopefully, this will get the scale moving.. I will don't want to try one of the meat fasts or other plateau busters..

Once the scale is moving again, I will impliment the "Cure" as it is prescribed by Dr Eades to the "T".. so hopefully, say around November 1st :)

Sorry for the long winded answer LOL
