Mauvaisroux, you said there's a forum here for people who are talking about this diet, but I haven't been able to find it!
I bought the book because I was interested in the science behind it and it sounded kind of hokey but compelling. I finished reading it today, and it still sounds weird but worth a try -- can't hurt to throw down a little sugar water if it might suppress your appetite a bit.
I'm on the WW plan and doing quite well with it, but I'd love to have less of an appetite. I have more to say about this, but I want to see if anyone else is trying it.
I tried it yesterday by taking 3 tbsp of sugar in 3 cups of hot water, and I was hungry and snacking all day (but still in my point range). When I woke up today, I had zero appetite, and I really haven't wanted to eat much at all today. I dissolved 3 tbsp of sugar in 2 cups of hot water today (because it just seemed like too much yesterday), and I don't know...maybe it's just the filling effect of the water. Who knows? I plan on getting some extra-light olive oil and trying that as well.
Anyone else trying this and seeing a change in appetite? Or are you trying it and seeing no change at all?
Also, if there IS a thread about this, can someone please point me to it?
