    Hello everyone.

    I come from the Shangri-La lands and I call it a huge success for me. It's easy to do as long as you are willing to read, research and experiment a lot.

    I have been documenting my experiences and adventures. If you want to read go to my journal on the SD forums Morex's adventures in SLD

    I have posted pictures of my progress and some of my typical meals.

    If you have any questions I'll be happy to help.

    Yeah! Morex is here!

    Hey Buddy.

    I hope your success puts some fire under some other peoples' buns to
    give this a try.

    I know it sounds super goofy, but OBVIOUSLY it works, soooooo, more people
    jump on in here!

    Morex, how is your girlfriend doing? And you know what, with regard to your post on the
    other site, and people thinking you're crazy when you tell them how you've lost your
    weight, just don't tell them. If they think you're nuts for guzzling oil, or that you're going
    to croak because it's so "bad for you", just tell them you've just been eating "real food"
    and keep the dang secret to yourself. They're not worthy!

    Anyway, glad you're here.

    Julia

    I have a question, and anybody who wants to can try to answer it for me.

    I'd like to try this, but drinking oil, even just a tablespoon, cleans me right out. I've tried olive oil, coconut oil, and melted cocoa butter. Anybody have suggestions?

    Edited to add: I found the FAQ and it says my body will adjust to it in a few days. I'd better schedule this for a weekend.

    Hah. The only thing I can add is to maybe try to schedule drinking it as close to an hour after eating as you can, so that you aren't drinking it on an empty stomach. I had a few cramps the first few days but adjusted pretty quickly.

    I was thinking of starting with a teaspoon and only increasing gradually when it was clear I was able to handle it. It seems like it would be defeating the purpose to eat an extra meal just so I could take the oil.

    Agreed. Do you only eat once a day? I actually only eat twice a day but for some reason have a lot of trouble fitting the oil in. I really don't know why. So, yesterday (and hopefully today!) will be the first two days I've done it twice a day. And even on only once a day, I still lost weight. Like....about a pound a day.

    Increasing gradually sounds good.

    I normally eat lunch and supper. I was figuring on having the oil in the morning and then again about lunchtime, pushing lunch back into a mid-afternoon snack.
