One thing I love to
do when I get up at 4 am (yes, I know, I'm crazy)
is to peruse the questions that we've received from readers and
This tells me what
people's issues are and what they might need me to talk about in
But every once in a
while, a question just makes me say, "Huh? Did you really just
Here is one of those
questions that just made me scratch my head:
have had 3 c-sections (2004, 2007 and 2009), a total colectomy
(2010) and an uterine ablation. I have gained 50 pounds since
the 2010 surgery.
What should I eat??? I do Weight Watchers points plus and it is

with all due respect, you're basically in the window of a
burning building and you're asking me to convince you to jump
into the firemen's net.
If losing your colon
and gaining 50 pounds isn't enough motivation to change your
diet, then what is? A new disease? Another surgery?
To try to help you,
I'll explain to you and all my readers what's really going on
here, and also why Weight Watchers hasn't worked for you.
Part 1: The
Krista didn't say why
she had her colon removed, but the most common reasons are:
Each of those
conditions is a BIG RED FLAG that something is seriously wrong
with your digestion.
Diverticulitis (and its predecessor, diverticulosis) is 100% caused by poor
digestion. Inadequate digestion leads to wastes that don't get
eliminated like they should. They get stuck along the colon
wall, cause constipation and lead to the formation of the
pockets (diverticula) that characterize the disease.
In addition, although
there are many factors that can play into the development of cancer, the toxins and acid wastes that build up from
insufficient digestion provide the ideal environment in which
cancer can thrive.
Ulcerative colitis is an autoimmune condition, meaning that the immune
system gets confused and attacks healthy cells in the colon,
causing sores, pus, bleeding and diarrhea. However, poor
digestion can aggravate an intestinal tract that is
sore-infested and encourage or worsen an attack.
So...no matter what
the underlying cause of having her colon removed, all the
evidence points to Krista needing to improve her digestion.
If not, it's only a
matter of time before something else goes wrong.
You see, once a
diseased body part is removed, you're not out of the woods.
Unless you address what caused the initial disease to begin
with, something else just as bad is sure to pop up.
And when you're
talking about poor digestion and buildup of wastes and toxins,
that can mean cancer somewhere else, Crohn's disease (similar to
colitis, but usually in the small intestine),
gastritis/ulcers/acid reflux or even arthritis or fibromyalgia.
Now, on to...
Part 2: Weight
Watchers, why have you failed me?
Weight Watchers is
effective at helping people track intake and gives them a
support system to encourage their efforts.
Most people do take
off weight at least initially by consuming fewer calories than
they burn. It's strictly a mathematical formula.
But that formula
works against you eventually.
You see, your body is
smart and realizes that you're taking in fewer calories. So it S
- L - O - W - S down your metabolic rate to keep you functioning
on less food.
That means you lose
fewer pounds...then eventually that scale number becomes
stubborn and will not budge.
counting or reduced intake is not the real key to taking weight
off and keeping it off. If it was, then there would have been no
more overweight people in the world once Weight Watchers came on
Know what the secret
is to taking off pounds AND keeping them off?
1- Eating REAL foods
Real foods include
fresh fruits, raw or lightly cooked vegetables, lean meats and
poultry, fish, whole grains and essential fats.
When you eat real
foods like these, your body can be nourished the way it needs to
And when you're
nourished, great things happen:
- You naturally get
full faster and eat less overall.
- Plus, the foods
you're eating are inherently lower in calories than pizza,
burgers, fries, chips or whatever other nutritionally dead foods
you may have eaten in the past.
- Because you're
actually nourished, you'll also STAY full and satisfied longer,
so your chances of sniffing around the refrigerator for a late
night snack have just been decimated.
And all of this
means: You can get slim and STAY slim!
But remember this is
just half of the formula. You also need to...
digestion is efficient!
If your foods are not
being broken down like they should be, you're not getting the
maximum nutrition from them. And that can cause feelings of
hunger which leads to overeating...
...plain and simple.

Now that you know
that real foods and good digestion are key to taking off pounds
AND disease prevention, I'll guide you on what to do.

2- Supplement with digestive enzymes.
Many people who have
had a longstanding diet of fast or processed foods have reduced
their body's ability to produce enzymes. That's because foods
like these are very hard to break down and your body must use up
a LOT of its enzymes doing its job.
And there are others
who are resistant to a healthy diet or will "slip up" more than
they should and eat meals that are next to impossible for their
system to digest.
Without the needed
levels of enzymes to break down your foods, you don't stand a
chance at efficient digestion. As a result, your body will have
trouble absorbing nutrients, you'll put weight back on and gut
problems will continue.
Digestizol Max can help give your body the enzyme boost it
