    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?

I see this guy all the time on TV talking about his weight loss cure that is known all around the world. Do any of you know what this is, I am interested but too cheap to buy the book until I know more about it. He states that all "diets" are created to fail, that once you stop a diet, you gain back more than you loss.

Anyway, if anyone has read this book, can you give me just a bite of what it is about!?

Thanks

That link doesn't work here is what someone said. It say's it all for me.

I picked up this book on eBay just to see what KT could possibly come up with that hasn't already been touted by every diet plan guru out there. And -- no surprise -- what is proposed in this book is completely ridiculous if only in terms of affordability and availability. The "key" to the weight loss is daily injections of hcg -- which you would have to either get from your doctor (can you imagine the cost of going to a doctor every day, including weekends, for 6 weeks to get an injection of a substance that the FDA has banned? And don't worry about finding a doctor willing to break the law -- there's a list on KT's website -- you just have to become a member for a nominal fee) or somehow you can sneak the substance into the country on one of your visits abroad and you can self-inject (no promises you'll get the stuff through customs though.) Oh yeah, and those 15 high colonics he recommends? A bit pricey. And that sauna you'll need to purchase for your home since you need to take a couple of those a day? That's kind of pricey too. And I don't think I'd be able to eat any food at all after taking all the supplements required in order to follow this plan. But that's probably not a problem since you're only allowed to eat 500 calories a day anyway.

Not everyone has the luxury of jetting off to a health spa/resort for six weeks in Germany in order to indulge in this kind of weight loss protocol -- or to make it part of a business venture and write off the expense.

Quite obviously there are a whole lot of details that Trudeau cleverly leaves out in all his hype and promotion of this book. It's certainly not something that the average person can (or would want to) undergo. I'm certainly not the only person to post this warning to prospective buyers -- please save your money. And I gave the book a 1 star rating only because I didn't know if giving it a -- (what I assume is a 0 rating) would count in the average rating. It honestly doesn't deserve even 1 star in my opinion.

Pure trash.

It's really too bad Kevin Trudeau is so greedy, wanting us to buy his book, and then pay big bucks to "join" his website to get the "Secret" to weight loss, which is injections of HCG.

The sad part is, in his first two books (which are NOT well-written or well-documented, by the way), he DOES make valid criticisms about the pharm industry, the FDA, western medicine in general, etc.

What a pity he uses this as a ploy to bilk desperate people--he could use his knowledge as a way to help people. And he never mentions gluten in his books, either--because he can't make any $ by telling anyone about it.

Dear Fiddle-Faddle,

I must say I agree that Trudeau makes valid claims against the government, pharmaceuticals, FDA, FTC, and western medicine. Although he had not mentioned gluten, he did lead me on my path to finding out I was Celiac. You see, I got his book "Natural Cures They Don't Want You To Know About". In it, he cited Yeast Candida as a leading cause of acid reflux and major gastrointestinal distress. That is when I began researching Candida. In doing so, I needed to find a doctor who was literate on the matter in order to be diagnosed and treated. The woman at the local healthfood store recommended the holistic physician I am seeing now. She is the one who diagnosed me with Celiac.

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl

I have Kevin Trudeau's Books. And I see the negative posts on this site regarding them. I was a bit surprised as I think many if not most who deal with celiac disease understand how significantly certain food elements can negatively affect the body. In Kevin's book the HCG option is that... an option not a requirement or the only way you can lose weight or even the foundation. There are other options listed as well including a number of supplements that if you research them have proven to be very successful with weight loss and even some other illnesses/problems as well such as: 100% pure coconut oil (I am using the capsules and find they do work much better than prescription drugs out there).

The core of what "the cure" is has to do with eating organic natural foods without the additives and chemicals that are packaged foods are loaded with and even many of our seemingly natural foods like fresh vegis and fruits and different forms of meats have even been loaded with preservatives and additives! If you do even a small amount of research you will find that since these chemicals have been used so heavily (from the late 60s/early 70s on) they are virtually in all of our non-organic foods. The preservatives and false foods (ie: diet sweeteners) & additives (all being chemicals that our bodies were not designed to process) have not only hugely contributed to and caused much obesity, but also cancer and a host of other health related illnesses. That's a fact!

I don't think people want to accept his findings (which he very openly and repeatedly states are not his ideas but truths and information he has compiled) as then they would have to change the way they shop and eat. No more grabbing al those quick, tasty convenient foods we have all around us. It takes more effort to relearn to shop and eat. But then again how much does it cost to live as obese with all the health issues that surround being overweight and the other areas that our culture's food related manufacturers have contines to eascalate the massive use of cheap preseratives - sweeteners and other unnatural, highly damaging chemicals poured into the foods to the point it has become the norm of our society, therefore they are most of what is out there and easy to use?

Hospital stays, loss of quality of life and death are huge prices to pay for convenience and/or not taking what these chemicals are doing to us seriously and relearning how to eat properly even if it takes more effort to do so. I have lost over 200 LBS in the past and had a 10 minute weekly slot on a morning 60 minutes show out west called "Body by Brenda" for over a year. And yet after a brutal divorce where I left everything and went back east, I gained over 100 lbs back. Believe me it is terribly devistating to be so full of energy and then find yourself back in a huge much slower moving body as I did. If you put the cure, which is for the most part changing the way you shop and eat, into practice, it will change you life bottom line. It won't be easy - change never is, but it is so very very worth it. I value energy and quality of life as never before and the sacrifices of change are small compared to the results.

Blessings, Brenda
