I bought the book, and have been hanging out on the Let's Do Lunch website for just over a month now, and I have lost 18 pounds! I still have a long way to go until I get to my weight loss goal, but I'm filled with hope and peace for the first time in a long, long time.
Like most overweight people, I have tried lots of different diets and exercise programs to lose the weight, but couldn't stick with anything for very long. I gave myself heel spurs when I tried jogging as an exercise method, I was too fat to run for any sort of distance. I worked up to 20 minutes at a time on a high intensity stair-climber, it was great for working up a sweat, but I didn't lose much weight. I've tried Jenny Craig (which worked for a little while, but was expensive, pounds came back), TOPS, Nutrisystem(a little cheaper, pounds came back), Atkins & other Low Carb plans (which worked for 30 pounds, but my cravings for breads and other no-nos drove me nuts, and the pounds came back). You see a pattern here?
Enter Roger Troy Wilson and his book, Let's Do Lunch. It sounded sort of gimmicky at first blush, but his story sounded a lot like my story, and but I hung out on the website ([...]) and lurked at the message boards, to see what real people thought of the plan. Hmm, I see some successful folks are still posting. I see some newbies are trying it out. I see the Author himself replying to posts and cheering on newer members, that is seriously cool. I see some folks who have had their health numbers (cholesterol, high bp, blood sugars) improve after trying out LDL. I look over the recipes, they look good, but different. Beans? Fresh fruits? Frozen smoothies? Big (I mean BIG) lunches? It is sort of like Low Carbing, no processed grains, no high fructose corn syrup, no breads, no pastas, no potatoes, no flour - but lots of foods are fair game. And I found out after about a month that all that wonderful fresh fruit just kills any cravings for sugar & candy, and those beans and veggies and popcorn and yummy filling soups (try the Pizza Soup recipe - trust me on this) really seem to knock out the cravings for breads and potatoes.
So let me recap: 1 month in, 18 pounds down, no cravings (none!), I eat until full for lunch, recipes that kick some serious tail (Pizza Soup!), a nice internet support group, why doesn't everyone eat this way? I'm hooked, my skeptical wife has started this diet with me, my kids don't run screaming when I ask them to try some new recipes, and I seriously am beginning to think that my prayers might be answered, that this might be what I've been looking for in my lifetime-long struggle with extra weight.
I hope that maybe anyone reading this decides to give it a try. Check out the website, hang out on the message boards, try a couple of recipes, then buy the book and see what it is really about.
Thanks, and God Bless.
