After being on a steroid type medication for 8 months, putting on 14 kg's, I have refused to take them for the ninth month. The Dr. promised, I'll lose the excess weight. Yeah, I wished. After two yers, I've remembered the Beverley HIlld diet book, by Judy Mazel, dug it out, read it in half the night. It was like somebody hypnotised me. Next day, I've started it, surprisingly, easily stuck to it, although I was working in a cake shop at the time. I was eating all day. I was satisfied, the weight just fell off. friend, relatives could not believe it. Since then, four friends have foloowed it, all lost substantial weight easily on this program. I don't call it a diet, as I can eat all day, it just tells you what. Very easy, the book is very encouraging, written in every day language. I still follow it three to four days a week. Have not put the wieght back on for the last four years. I feel better than before. Healthy, energetic. It is true, as Ms Mazel claims, it's also great for the skin. 20 odd years ago she has come up with these enzymes, people just start talking about them now. The cosmetic industry just now start putting pineapple, mano, pawpaw extracts in their facial cream. It's only the last few years we hear how blueberry is good for cleansing. I am so happy that this book was ever written, it was way ahead of it's time.
