there are men on the IP program/on this site... check the daily threads, steve from finland, and "wayward", they are extremely successful. People that aren't on the program don't understand the science behind it. It is the best program out there. But you must follow it all the way through the phases. (look at intro on daily IP threads, you can read Dr. Tran's book about the program.)
The key to this program is phasing off properly so you maintain and don't gain weight back. it teaches you how to food combine properly. I have lost 40lbs and have never felt better and I know that I won't gain back because of all the guidance and the understanding of the pancreas and insulin secretion. Definitely send one of the guys that is on the IP Forum a personal message, or post your question on the daily thread so all the regulars will see it.
You won't regret it if you decide to go with IP. You can also buy alternatives intstead of spending the money to purchase IP food, a lot of people are equally successful using their own bars, shakes or ordering IP items like oatmeal, cereal, etc. on the Nashua site,
