I recently purchased Dr. Eades' book "The 6 Week Cure for the Middle Aged Middle" and was hoping for some feedback from members of the MDA/Primal community who may have followed the program or read the book. I'm particularly interested in the science behind the liver detox/cleansing process outlined in chapter 2. Some of the results described in the book are nothing short of amazing. I've read both positive and negative reviews of the book and am not sure whether or not to attempt the program. I read Dr. Eades blog all the time and admire him greatly and appreciate all he and his wife have done to enlighten us in the area of low carb living. I'd just like to know how others feel about this program in particular.
I am 47 years old (male) 5' 10" and have been eating low carb since early 2009. I began following the PB about 3 months ago. Though I've been able to lose 40 or so pounds (215lb to 175lb) I seem to have reached an extremely stubborn plateau, complete with the aggravating "paunch" that just won't budge. My weekly workouts consist of some P90X (either Chest & Back or Shoulders & Arms or Plyometrics) 3 times a week along with some Tabata sprints on the off days. I like to get in (near) daily 45 minute to one hour walks and the occasional 1 to 2 hour hike. Lately I've also been mixing in some Kettlebells which I really enjoy. I fast once per week for approximately 28 to 36 hours, but it seems this has only made that last ten pounds even more stubborn! Will the "6 Week Cure" be what it takes to nudge the weight loss in the right direction?
Your thoughts/advice are greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
