Experience rapid weight loss and seize control over metabolism and health

Weight loss can be an enormously frustrating process - if you are given the wrong advice. The world of weight loss abounds with fiction and fairy tales, as well as those eager to profit from your frustration.

Knowing which path to choose includes knowing which paths are dead ends, paths that will lead to frustration, even weight gain. Many fictions abound that impair your ability to lose weight.

Among the fictions that trip people up in weight loss:
  • People are overweight because they are sedentary—While being sedentary does lead to weight gain, for most overweight people it is insufficient explanation. The wrong diet is the prime reason—by a long stretch. In fact, compared to people from 50 years ago, physical activity has not declined for many, but weight has skyrocketed. Why are many people who follow serious exercise programs often overweight? Why are many athletes overweight? It’s diet, not just activity.
  • Counting calories leads to weight loss - It does, but it is a painful way to get there. Only the toughest, most resolute can endure deprivation for any length of time. Results tend to be short-lived, since few people can tolerate the constant gnaw of hunger generated by trimming calories in the midst of an unhealthy diet. It also allows a reset of the "set point," a weight loss booby trap causing you to reduce caloric expenditure to compensate for reduced caloric intake.
  • Frequent small meals ("grazing") are better for weight loss. It is true, but only if appetite triggers remain in your diet. There is a better way that will rid you of the need for this screwball practice.
  • High levels of exercise are an effective way to lose weight. It helps, but there are easier, faster, healthier, and more sustainable ways.
  • The biggest untruth of all: "Healthy, whole grains" are good for you. Flat wrong: "Healthy, whole grains" make you fat, skyrocket blood sugar, trigger inflammation, and perpetuate the 2-hour hunger cycle. Sure, whole grains are better than bleached, processed white flours. But just because something is better than something that is bad doesn’t mean it’s good. Whole grains, especially those from wheat, in addition to triggering an entire constellation of abnormal phenomena, amplify appetite. Remove them . . . appetite shrinks.
The Cureality approach to weight loss applies the critical lessons learned correcting lipoprotein and metabolic derangements in thousands of people. While the Cureality diet is effective for this purpose, here we modify the approach to make it a weight loss program first, a lipoprotein/metabolic correcting diet second, one that makes it more likely you shed all the excess pounds.

Typical results on the program:
  • 10 lbs weight loss in the first 2 weeks
  • 30 lbs weight loss in the first 3 months
  • Increased energy, improved sleep within first week
  • Decreased abdominal fat
  • Marked improvements in blood sugar, insulin responses, c-reactive protein, triglycerides, HDL, and LDL cholesterol (especially small LDL)
Individual results depend on the condition of the diet prior to the start of the program, metabolic rate, body size, and other factors. Also keep in mind that, should lipids or lipoproteins be assessed while weight is declining, they may transiently show what appear to be undesirable effects: increased triglycerides, reduced HDL, increased blood sugar, all of which improve when weight stabilizes. So don’t rush reassessment of lipids or lipoproteins after weight loss; in general, most people should wait a minimum of 4 weeks after weight has stabilized before lipids or lipoproteins are reassessed.

Remove all foods that trigger appetite

If something continually fuels the fire of appetite, it is virtually impossible to resist temptation. Put a warm basket of rolls in front of you before dinner and you’re helpless!

The solution: If foods contain appetite triggers that keep hunger on overdrive, then remove them and you regain control. This allows you to eat what you require for sustenance without unnatural appetite-triggering effects.

This is the number one most important requirement for a weight-reducing or weight-control program: If you remove the components of diet that trigger appetite, control over impulse and appetite are restored. A wonderful thing happens: You eat only what your body requires, no more, no less. Cravings fade, the typical 2-hour hunger cycle is gone, you feel full with less food. Even hunger itself feels different: Rather than the stomach-rolling, ravenous, "got to have something to eat!" hunger that repeats like clockwork every 2 hours, the hunger cycle is extended to 4, often 8, or more hours. When hunger occurs, it’s a soft, gentle kind of sensation.

Among the most crucial of appetite issues to understand: The gliadin protein in wheat products (a protein in all wheat), when subjected to the digestive processes of the human stomach, yields formation of exorphins, morphine-like compounds that bind to the opiate receptors of the brain and stimulate appetite, causing us to consume an additional 400 or more calories intake per day, every day. In addition to appetite-stimulation, wheat exorphins produce an addictive response, an abnormal drug-like craving: wheat is addictive. The 2-hour hunger cycle takes on a desperate edge that, if not satisfied, leads to shaking, anxiety, mental cloudiness, headache and a need to get a wheat "fix." In 30% of people, it can be that dramatic. The effect is unique to wheat; it is not shared by cornstarch, rice starch, potato starch, or sugar (though we advocate their avoidance, also, because of sugar-insulin fluctuations, not addictive potential).

You know who understands this extremely well? Manufacturers of processed food. The $40-80 billion (annual revenues) food and agricultural conglomerates, big and powerful enough to spend $50 million per year on food psychology research, understand principles of hunger and appetite - how to manipulate food perceptions, buying behavior, appetite, and appetite triggers. That kind of money buys plenty of insight into how to pull your strings and get you to eat more . . . and more, and more, and more—400, 800, up to 1500 calories per day more than your body requires. It’s no surprise that Americans are the fattest nation on earth: It happened by design in the name of profit.

Another reason why these foods increase appetite is the cycle of blood sugar peaks and valleys they trigger; the sugar lows of the valleys trigger a powerful and irresistible sensation of hunger, a cycle that repeats every 2 hours. Foods made with wheat or cornstarch increase blood sugar faster and to a higher level than even table sugar (i.e., they have a higher glycemic index than table sugar), followed by a precipitous sugar drop, thereby triggering appetite.

It’s time to stop falling victim to the appetite-increasing, profit-seeking trickery of the processed food industry. Reject these foods, take back control over appetite and health. Weight loss becomes effortless.

To put this powerful strategy to work, remove the following appetite triggers:
  • Wheat products, all breads (white, whole wheat, whole grain, multigrain, oat bread, flax bread, etc.), bagels, muffins, pastas, cakes, cookies, pancakes, waffles, pretzels, crackers, all breakfast cereals.
  • Cornstarch - Tacos, tortillas, corn chips, cornbreads, gravies, breakfast cereals.
  • High-fructose corn syrup - High-fructose corn syrup is contained in nearly every processed food, from ketchup, to low- or non-fat salad dressings, to spaghetti sauce, to beer. If it’s processed, it probably contains high-fructose corn syrup. The worst culprit here is the fructose.
  • Sugars - Table sugar (which is 50% fructose), fruit drinks, fruit juices, candies, maple syrup, flavored syrups, honey
As long as these foods find a place in your diet, you will be subject to their appetite-increasing influence. The first key step: Eliminate them.

Important: Wheat-free is not the same as gluten-free!

While eliminating wheat eliminates gluten, commercial gluten-free foods will lead you down the path of yet another group of unhealthy foods. Don’t fall for it! There is no place for commercial gluten-free foods in your diet.

Gluten-free breads and snacks do not contain gluten and won’t therefore trigger celiac disease, the devastating intestinal condition caused by gluten exposure. But gluten-free foods trigger appetite, small LDL, increased triglycerides, increased blood sugar, the effects you are trying to get rid of: Avoid them! The cornstarch, rice flour, potato starch, tapioca starch or other wheat substitutes used in gluten-free foods, while they do not trigger the addictive behavior of wheat, can still wreak havoc with your weight loss effort.

Elimination of hunger triggers is crucial to your weight loss efforts. It forms the cornerstone of dietary strategies that makes the Cureality weight loss program so effective. Interestingly, along with substantial weight loss, subjective improvements also occur with removal of appetite trigger foods: increased mental clarity, increased energy, improved sleep, more stable moods - that is, once you are beyond the effects of wheat withdrawal.

Now that you’ve eliminated the foods that trigger appetite, you now want to load up on the foods that do not trigger the 2-hour insulin-glucose cycle and generate satiety: oils and proteins.

Unlimited healthy fats and oils

Among the many lessons learned during the past 40-year low-fat era was that fats and oils are necessary for satiety (a feeling of fullness and satisfaction). Reduce fats and oils (i.e., a low-fat diet) and appetite increases due to the lack of satiety, as well as the 2-hour sugar-insulin cycle induced by carbohydrate-enriched foods.

Fats and oils are necessary for health. They form the backbone for hormone synthesis, provide the building blocks for cell membranes, modulate inflammatory and immune responses, enhance absorption of oil-soluble vitamins and flavonoids, among many other processes necessary for life. Fats and oils exert powerful health-enhancing effects, especially the omega-3 class of polyunsaturated oils and the monounsaturates. Even the formerly demonized saturated fats are making a powerful comeback.

Oils trigger a wonderful feeling of fullness without triggering insulin or blood sugar (like carbohydrates). We put this quality of oil to use in the Cureality program to further suppress appetite and return control over eating behavior.

We therefore put fats and oils to work to induce satiety by including generous quantities of one of these healthy oils to every meal:
  • Coconut oil—The unique fatty acid, lauric acid, constitutes 48% of the fatty acids in coconut oil. Lauric acid may be unique in that it may actually facilitate weight loss while having no adverse effects on metabolism or lipoprotein patterns.
  • Olive - Rich in monounsaturates (70%) and polyphenols.
  • Avocado - Similar in fatty acid composition to olive oil with 70% monounsaturates.
  • Flaxseed - Richest in linolenic acid (51%), the so-called non-fish source of "omega-3" (though it will not substitute for fish oil).
  • Fats from animal sources—The fat on your beef, pork, and other meats, the dark meat and fat from poultry, as well as organ meats should not be avoided, but consumed along with the meat.


(The above is in addition to supplemental omega-3 fatty acids used in your Cureality program to reduce cardiovascular risk and correct lipoprotein abnormalities).

Of course, consistent with the Cureality diet, avoid hydrogenated oils containing "trans" fatty acids such as those in margarine and processed foods.

One of these healthy oils should be a part of every meal in generous quantities. For instance, if you have ground flaxseed as a hot cereal for breakfast (microwaved, for instance, in coconut milk or unsweetened almond milk with added walnuts and blueberries), add a teaspoon or two of coconut oil to the cereal. If you have two scrambled eggs with sun-dried tomatoes and onions, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Likewise, add oils to lunch and dinner.

Use oils generously and satiety results: You are satisfied, the 2-hour hunger cycle doesn’t develop, you will no longer fall victim to impulse.

Unlimited meats and eggs
