A year from the start of the Half Hour Diet, patients who have tried the strategy say it is easy and “painless,” and many are saving on food costs. A few recent stories:
–A man lost 67 pounds over the year, came off 5 of 7 medicines, saves $150 per month in prescription copays, and has about 70 pounds more to lose.
–A woman lost 30 pounds in 6 months and a total of 35 pounds at 9 months.
–A woman lost 30 pounds over the year and has 30 pounds more to lose.
–A man lost 15 pounds over 3 months.
–Another man lost 17 pounds over 3 months and 27 pounds by 6 months, his diabetes and high blood pressure are under better control, and he takes much lower doses of medicines.
Obstacles to success: Many patients directed to this website never access it, and of those who do, many never try the Half-Hour Diet even though the approach is so simple. But a simple strategy can only work for those who try it, which requires at least a little bit of willpower.
