I was diagnosed at 15 and have struggled every day with my weight. It is so funny to hear others who do not have these same struggles go on and on how exercise will do the trick. You just need to get moving. I, along with many others, have tried pretty much every diet in the book ... and yet have never lost the weight that I need to. I agree, exercise is needed for everyone because it is good for your body, heart, etc. So, definitely keep doing it, but for those of us with "other" conditions that affects our weight, we can't lose it!

So -- when I heard about IP, I went to the information session. I was so happy to hear them talking about insulin resistance. Prior to this, I have never heard anyone ever mention it, other than my doctor. So when they said that this is focused on people with insulin resistance, I felt like this was my one miracle to get the weight off.

Since starting a while back, I am down 30 lbs ... I could not believe it. 30 lbs ... that is a lot of weight!!! Years and Years of diet and exercise got me around 7-10 lbs ... that was it.

My only problem, is I am having the worst time staying OP! I do really well, then I cheat and I fall off the wagon. I am finally back on, I gained about 5 lbs back from falling off, but I know that I can get it off and the rest!!! I am determined. I have a goal in mind -- plus a hefty reward for reaching my goal!!

This diet DEFINITELY WORKS for us with "conditions"
I sure hear you Allie!! I almost decked a very good friend recently for saying he is "..convinced if you exercise enough you can eat what ever you want.."

My response to him was..." are about as dead wrong as about 80% of the Doctors in this country...and you probably don't want to have this conversation with me.."

My husband stepped in and said to him...."For sure.... you don't want to have that conversation with my wife.." This was after he complimented me on how good I looked...I felt INSULTED that he insinuated I did not try in the past to lose weight and was not active enough. His wife was my best friend who died suddenly about 5 yrs ago...and was referenced by me today in the thread on "what moment were you ready for IP". If she had been standing next to him she would have decked him for me! I still miss her...she "got" it.
