I have been using your Great Taste No Pain plan for two weeks now and have lost 6
pounds. I have tried every plan imaginable over the last 15 years and would lose 5 pounds and gain back more--the yo-yo thing. I have been to diet center, Nutri-system, weight watchers, Jenny Craig, and our hospital liquid plan. Each time I gain back more because they don't teach you how to eat. I am 73 and 5' 1" so it is not easy to lose. I had gotten up to 160 which is entirely too much. I should weigh around 135 and look forward to getting back into smaller clothes.
With this plan I am not hungry and have not craved anything with sugar. I have felt comfortable for the most part. I am well pleased with how this is working out. I have not wanted as much to eat and feel very satisfied. And I am enjoying walnuts, pecans, and peanuts for I have avoided them for years.
I feel so blessed to have found out about this and look forward to using the recipes.
I have felt so much better since commencing your Great Taste No Pain plan. I feel confident to go out again and not to have to worry where I will find the loo!
The reflux I have suffered for 15 years has all but gone. I sleep better and enjoy the food I thought I would never be able to eat again. I no longer need to take any form of medication (not that it helped much anyway) and most of all I have lost weight without feeling hungry.
I must admit I think it must have been fate that day I found your website - I will be grateful for ever and hope anyone reading this message will be inspired and encouraged to try this way of eating.
I have been eating pain free for 10 days now. I feel really good! I have had IBS since I was about 7 years old. I have bad allergies also. My acid reflux started when I was 30 yrs old. I am now 40 yrs old. I have been on prescription medicine for 5 yrs. Before that I took over the counter antacids. The acid reflux has been so bad this year. I have had to take Prevacid in the morning & then Rolaids or Tums before bed & sometimes during the night.
My father was diagnosed w/ Crohn’s disease last year & my mother has Fibromyalgia. I have been scared to go to a Doctor about my problems because I don't want to have all those tests run & have them tell me I need to take tons of medication for the rest of my life. I watch my father struggle w/ his pains & his medication really doesn't help him. The Doctor takes him on & off Steroids quite often.
Having said all this. I did an internet search for help with Crohn’s & found YOU! I began your 4 program immediately. I have noticed several changes in my health already. I was always very bloated before. It was uncomfortable to bend over to tie my shoes or pick something up that had dropped in the floorboard of the car. Now I can bend over easily. I can squat on the ground during my daughter’s soccer game & talk to friends & get back up easily. That probably sounds silly to some people but it was becoming a problem for me. My joints don't hurt as much now. This will sound strange but I feel thin "inside".
I also don't have to take my medication anymore. My reflux does not bother me at all IF I FOLLOW THE RULES. It's funny to say that. I have always hated to follow rules, however these simple rules are easy & what a benefit to have NO PAIN. Another thing I have noticed is that lately I can breathe better. My nose is not stuffed up like it was before. I have polyps in my nose and I don't know if they are shrinking or what, but when I am at the store I can smell everything.
All I can tell you is that I found something wonderful in your plan that works very well for me. I can eat everything I want to & feel good. What is really strange, I don't crave sweets now. I actually want things like squash or nuts or wheat bread. I'm serious! It is funny to me because I used to say I will never like wheat bread & I hated yellow squash. It's nice to not crave the poison I was putting in my body anymore.
Sherry, I'm so sorry you had to suffer w/ IBS for all those years, But I'm very glad you came up with a formula that helps eliminate pain & discomfort for so many of us w/ digestion problems. I really feel like God guided me to your website that day & I am truly thankful!
I've been following your diet for a week and noticed a difference after the 3rd day.
In the spirit of transparency, I've also battled IBS since college (late 70's/early 80's), then discovered Gluten intolerance 4 yrs ago and my life significantly improved, but still had issues on and off and especially so during very stressful times. A co-worker was recently hospitalized for Diverticulitis for an emergency procedure and decided I'd research since I was having similar challenges and didn't want to find myself suffering the same consequences in the near future. During this process I stumbled onto your website and thought I'd give your program a try.
Although I'm currently going through a very stressful time, and thinking my diet wasn't too bad, after following your diet, I began feeling much better and seemed to feel "normal" again. I didn't feel hungry often nor had the need to snack as I had in the past. Noticed my energy level rise and each day it appeared I had a higher energy level than the day before. Surprisingly my posture improved as well!
In addition, I've been battling a cold/sinus infection/bronchitis for the last 2.5 months, been on 4 rounds of antibiotics and could not get well. I began your diet immediately after the last round of infection and a fever that just wouldn't go away. I could not continue the antibiotics (already too many) and so relied on a good diet and lots of rest. I'm experiencing a lot of drainage but definitely feel I'm on the mend and was just able to get started on mild exercise today (usually run 3-5xs/week). I truly believe your diet has helped me mend on a much healthier path toward full recovery.
Thank you very much for your support and the knowledge you share with all.
I'm very grateful.
Last Dec, just after Christmas I was suddenly hospitalized for diverticulitis – something I never knew about nor realized could happen. I eat a lot of fruits& veggies & was shocked that a sudden 3-day constipation attack could lead to this.
However, this was something I believe God wanted me to learn because I had a colonoscopy done at the end of January which resulted in the timely removal of a possibly carcinomatous polyp.
Since then I made it a point to understand how such problems could be avoided & started researching the ways to a healthier life. I have been following your recommendations to combine foods properly and because of this I praise & thank God
that I've found a natural way to reduce cravings for unnecessary foods. I threw away a half used pack of Duromin 30mg which was something I relied on. I’m so thankful for a healthier & natural option to control my appetite.
My current prayer is that healthy options in Singapore would become cheaper & more easily available. The unhealthy choices far outweigh healthy ones.
My sister bought your Great Taste No Pain plan for me and I started last Monday, a week ago. I have lost 10 pounds and my ankles no longer swell up as much as they did before. I have more energy and feel great. I rarely get very hungry unless I go to long before eating. I was a "sweets" junky and no longer crave sweets. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Thank you for all your great information on the combination of different foods. It worked! I don't get that burning feeling in my stomach and don't feel hungry all the time. I was so worried that I had ulcers or heart burn. A lady in my exercise class had what she thought was heartburn and instead needed to get a triple bypass. So it worried me even more.
But thanks to your information I feel no pain!
Thank you for your health system.
I am a nurse, so I am aware of the clinical symptoms and adverse outcomes related to digestive conditions. My mother had one of those inflamed sacs burst and that resulted in a temporary colonostomy following surgery to remove the affected colon. I was
in agony watching my mother in that terrible pain never thinking that it could happen to me.
I found out that I had diverticulosis following a kidney ultrasound some years ago and had one painful episode that took me to the urgent care 2 years ago. I have been self-treating the more frequent episodes at home (not recommended) until last week when
nothing worked and I had the most severe pain yet.
After a CT scan and definite diagnosis of diverticulitis I began taking the medications that were supposed to take the pain away.
The side effects from Cipro and Flagyl were worse than the original symptoms and I could not force myself to stay on them for more than 36 hours. I felt that they were "poison" to my system.
I searched online for help and found you. I am so thankful that you took the time to write down your story and share it with the many people who have and will benefit from it.
I purchased your program and followed the diet for 4 days. I was surprised that I was not hungry and enjoyed every meal and snack in a new wondrous way.
I will continue this way of eating and I am sharing this new information with others, because I believe that our health is something that we can influence and we will be more energetic and happy as a result.
I am so pleased with how great I feel and my increased energy. My husband can't believe that I am staying awake longer at night.
I am so thrilled that I finally found a person that understands my problem and could help me through it, I thank you so much. I had my stroke at the age of 48 years old in 2005. Along with the other problems you have helped me with (and you did so wonderfully) I have followed everything you have taught me so far and I feel wonderful. No more irritated stomach. No more irritated bowel. I feel great and I am not hungry at all - I feel great!
I read about Great Taste No Pain, and I thought yes, right...This is just someone else making a fortune off of ignorant people. But after episode after episode of diverticulitis and after losing a friend to this dreadful disease I became scared. I searched every site I could find on the web reading about this and NO one would tell you anything except avoid constipation, seeds nuts...etc... Not how to do it, just avoid it. Then in the process I ran across a site about Nexium and how dangerous it was to be on this drug longer than 14 days....I had been taking it for 5 years. I also read blogs about Nexium and was amazed at the people that had gained weight when on it. I had gained 10 lbs when I started taking it. Then I went back to Sherry's site and read it again. I decided what do I have to lose - the cost of the program is cheaper than what I was paying for Nexium even with my insurance. So I bit the bullet and ordered. I started the program immediately. I was amazed that I never felt hungry and after day 1 felt 95% better. I have been 8 days now without Nexium and have lost 5lbs already. I do not feel deprived in any way.
It feels wonderful to sleep thru the night without heartburn and hopefully I can say in a few months that I have not had another diverticulitis flare-up. Thanks Sherry for the new me!!!
