the DIET from h*ll

i am being inundated with emails and comments about em’s diet! 

here is a little note from em:

Thank you so much for all your nice comments. I am feeling so great and am
so glad that I did it.

I will tell you it was really hard, and you have to be really committed and
ready in order to stick to it.

I found the doctor through our hairdresser who has done the diet twice,
having a baby in between.

Click on the link below for more info. She is local so you may need to call
them and ask if there is anyone similar in your area,

Thanks again for all the nice comments


here is the link:

The doctor and program are local, and you have to qualify to sign up for the program. Before you even start, you have a consultation with the dr. and attend a seminar about the program. Then you have to get a series of tests and a physical to make sure it’s safe for you to be on the diet. I remember this felt like a lot of hoops to jump through.  I remember that Emily was really really READY to do WHATEVER it took to lose the weight. She thought about it for awhile, and knew what it entailed. But I think it got to the point that nothing fit, she was miserable, and just made the decision and commitment in her own mind. I can remember telling her… hey, it’s 120 days. You can do anything for 120 days!  120 days will come and go whether you do it or not. … em is pretty private in general, but she told everyone around her what she was doing, and had tons of supportive people.  The first little bit was SO HARD for her. I remember her just being so hungry, and just having to go to sleep cause she couldn’t’ eat!  But after just a couple of weeks,  she had adjusted, totally knew exactly how to deal with the limitations, and just totally stuck with it.  (although she did tell me everyday what day it was). She lost 12 lbs in the first 2 weeks of the diet.  I would guess there are similar programs elsewhere.
She had to weigh all her food- so it wasn’t a calorie counting deal, and once she was going, it was so easy for her to stick with it! I wish it were a more readily available program. I remember when she went to get her physical and stuff from her normal dr., his nurse totally knew about the program, and they referred people over there all the time.
Anyway, check out the link! Good luck!

    How inspiring you are Emily, this morning as I am getting up for breakfast I was about to grab my usual…but then your “after” picture came into my mind…so I reached for the low fat cereal and skim milk instead…..bet you didn’t think you would be inspiring people from the other side of the world….but you have!

    Congrats to em !!!As long as you are the 2 h’s healthy and happy,you look great either way. My DH did that diet also and had amazing results like 60 lbs in 4 months, its all about the measuring and portions.
    So I was so excited to see the details of CLUB HEIDI, how cool is that, I do already own the book and it is full of so many excellent ideas and inspiration.LOve it.
    I just did a layout using the fire mask, I am going to post it on my blog,but not until after the contest is over, that I entered it into. I also used ghost letters and some stamp edged words. It totally rocks, if I can say so myself.
    I can’t wait to order the kit for july, I feel like I am going to be waiting in line to the toy store the day after x-mas,just to get one . Yipeeeeeeeeeeee.
    congrats getting that site up and running with your crazy schedule, you rock on so many levels !!!
    peace love and scrapbooking

    Hi Heidi (and Em)
    I totally understand how this dietary change works. I underwent something similar (but not as hard core) earlier this year, and as of today, 6 months down the track, I have lost and kept off 45 lbs (20 kg). I had tried WW and other diets, and all would be good for a few months. Then, no matter what I did (increase exercise, decrease food intake, increase intensity of exercise etc) I would start putting weight on again. It was soooo frustrating. On NYD this year, my husband left me and my kids without warning. I stopped eating. Basically for about a month, I didn’t eat. Not through intentionally “starving” myself, but I just wasn’t hungry. I ate small (1/2 cup max) portions of healthy food if I was hungry, but that wasn’t very often. The weight literally fell off in buckets. Now, I eat, but my portion sizes are smaller that they were before, and my food is all healthy. My kids and I had bought fish and chips (a popular takeaway in NZ) for the first time in 6 months, about 2 weeks ago. We don’t have snack foods in the house (but we do have fruit and veges) and we don’t eat takeaways/junk food. For the first time in 12 years, I am under 70kg/154lbs. In fact, I now weigh 68 kg, which is under 150 lbs. I am 5 kg/11 lb away from being the weight I was before I was pregnant with my first child 12 years ago. I haven’t been this weight since I was pregnant with her. Sometimes, the body needs to really have a huge kick up the bum to get it to work properly *metabolism/weight loss wise*.
    Good luck Em – you look fantastic.

    Tell her I am so proud of her. I lost almost 200 pounds this past year so I know it is hard work and commitment.
