The Cracks In The Pound Caster Diet
Okay, first let me tell you beforehand that I am in no way affiliated with Paul Sanders’ Pound Melter e-book or selling it. As of today, I have just finished the first week of use.
I will do a follow-up article at the end of my first month to inform you of my full results. The reason for this article is because I have not been able to find any reviews from anyone, I am NOT trying to sell this product and I find it extremely strange. Supposedly more than 88,000 people have done this diet and one would expect to find good and bad reviews on the Internet. On blogs promoting the e-book for sale, I see questions from consumers, but no one answers them. This tells me that the reviews are only in the E-Book itself, but not from people who have actually followed the described protocol. They can’t answer the question because they haven’t actually done the diet themselves.
Let me share a little bit about myself so that you can judge for yourself whether my review is credible or not.
I am a LifeSuccess Coach with a focus on Health and Wellness. Empowering people not only to look and feel their best, but also to mentally defy age. My husband, I have really been paying attention to nutrition and anti-aging for the last 7-8 years. I never had a real problem with my weight until I was 40 years old. So no, there is no great story here about my 45-pound loss. I am an average woman who, as I grew up, was starting to gain 10 pounds. every decade. I’ve always been mindful of my appearance (I’ve always been told that I look a lot younger than I am) and have worked to maintain my weight these last 10 years at and around 130 pounds.
When I gave birth to my last child at 25, he weighed only 130. When I reached 40, I crept up to 137-138. When I was 46, I found a system through a company that I was a distributor for that offered a high-protein, low-card diet, and some amazing supplements. (No, I’m not here to sell you that system either) However, that system really worked. I dropped my weight to 124 and held it for almost 1 year. I lost 15 pounds. in the first 30 days and then another 5 during the following month, reaching 120 pounds. I couldn’t keep that up. Within a week I was back at 124, which is where I was eating healthy, but still sipping my chocolate and ice cream every now and then in moderation. I just watched what he ate. But then I went back up to the low 130 the second year. I was fine with that. However, all of a sudden, just before my 49th birthday, I started gaining weight at a rate that took me by surprise, and no matter what I did, I was unable to maintain my low 130.
Seriously, even though I stuck to my high protein diet perfectly, the weight kept increasing. I would lose 2 pounds. and get it back. If I stuck with an unhealthy caloric intake of about 900kc, I stuck with it. But that was not how I wanted to live my life. I enjoy food and I ate healthy. I didn’t want to be reduced to always being on a diet, especially if I wasn’t seeing results.
I stopped dieting. I was just going to eat the healthiest I could and learn to accept that this weight was part of the “Life Change” and was hormonal in nature. The last 6 months before my 50th birthday, my weight was set at 145. With the winter, I was able to hide it, most of it anyway. The problem was that my birthday is in the month of May and summer was approaching and I realized that for the first time in my life I was not going to be able to wear a bikini and I knew well enough that I was not going to. like me in one piece. He just didn’t know what else to do. I’ve done the gym thing, I eat well, I’m on a diet. I’m tired of this Yo-Yo. I know most of you are reading this, be it 10, 20, 30, 50 or 100 pounds. Do you want to lose; you know EXACTLY what I’m talking about.
Then, just over a week ago, I found out that I was going on a cruise in June 2015. Although I was excited, I was also aware of the fact that I was going to be primarily with a 30-year-old who had a rocking body! LOL my gosh that was going to make me feel self-conscious!
Then an email arrives on my desk the next day about the Pound Melter. After watching their video it sounded exciting and it was definitely not the same as they had just been feeding us wrapped in a different package. So, I started doing my due diligence on Brown Fat. What I read and heard really got me excited about the chances that I could maybe lose 10 or 15 pounds. in June if the Diet to Melt Pounds worked. For $ 40.00 he was willing to give it up! Nothing else was working!
I went ahead, ordered it, and read the entire Pound Melter e-book. And the next day I started the Protocol. However, I am VERY skeptical. But, their protocol is definitely all healthy and good foods for you. So why am I so skeptical, because there is nothing to back up your results? All reviews are only from people who sell it. There is a Facebook page or two and again no honest or real reviews.
Then there is the protocol itself. Paul Sanders has very specific times when he must eat food; without explanation to the times. Start the day at 7 am-9am. Well, what if someone starts the day much earlier? What if one wakes up late? Or are they on night shift? It does not address this issue. I have now sent a support email asking you to clarify this twice. And the answer both times is vague. Just this morning, I emailed him to see if he could get a specific answer. The protocol, for the most part, is self-explanatory EXCEPT there are at least 4 foods that are not typical and it does not explain how they should be eaten or prepared. There should be an FAQ section on this topic.
It does not mention whether you can substitute foods with the same foods in that food group. They answered that question in a support email I sent. But again, in my opinion, it is a common question and should be in a frequently asked question. Why is it like pulling your teeth out to get an answer?
Then there’s the fact that nowhere in his e-book does Pound Melter recommend eating the foods that actually INCREASE the number of brown fat cells one has. It seems to assume that everyone has sufficient brown fat cells. This is simply not true. As I found out in my own due diligence research, brown fat cells are mostly found in slimmer people, women, and people with low blood glucose levels.
I just don’t understand why you don’t mention this in your Pound Melter e-book. The list of foods that have the necessary hormone to naturally increase your brown fat cells is a short list.
Since there is no way to know how many Brown Fat Cells one has, it would make sense to recommend eating these foods in addition to their protocol, since as they state over and over again, there are NO Dietary Limitations.
The other challenge I have is that while Paul Sanders says it’s all about making this program affordable, the upsells one has to make in the checkout process are ridiculous and then you have quite a few sales pitches on the E- Book. . I am not against anyone making money. But having a sales pitch after the sale definitely makes me question your motives and credibility.
The truth is that green leafy vegetables and fruits rich in water help cool the body temperature. There is enough science behind that. So the question is, following the Paul Sanders protocol and the Pound Melter diet, can you really teach the body to stay at the lowest body temperature long enough to activate brown fat cells and your maintenance plan really? will it keep our body temperature there?
So my goal here is this, not just sticking to your plan for the next 30 days or so, but combining a few other things I know about nutrition, in addition to what I recently learned about brown fat, and writing a follow-up. item to this in about 3 weeks.
I want to give the consumer a really honest opinion. If you’ve tried it or are currently applying it, I’d love to hear your results so far.
The results of my first week are: I have lost 1 pound. (Paul Sanders states that it takes about 30 days to take effect, so I agree with this) While I have eaten all the foods as per protocol, I tend to wake up later and go to bed earlier, so I changed the schedules in agreement. I’m not hungry at all. Aside from what is stated in the Pound Melter protocol, I don’t eat anything else for breakfast and for lunch and dinner I usually have a high protein shake or some other protein. I do eat some of the foods listed to increase my brown fat cells, throughout the day, along with drinking a minimum of 64 oz. of water or other nutritious drink. In my smoothies I use nonfat Chobani Greek yogurt and unsweetened almond milk and truvia as a sweetener.
I truly believe that science has actually stumbled upon some workable information about our bodies that will help many people lose weight once we can do it. If the Pound Melter protocol doesn’t work, it is at least a healthy way to eat for people and can lead them down a path of healthier lifestyles, one they may not have found unless they were on this quest like me.
