16 08 2017 - Just in from Mr. Pedro
Hi Luigi, I had a hard time getting started as I never ate breakfast in my life. I re-read the book, made my plan and after just a week, my energy level has surged. Nothing else has changed, same job, same work stress but eating your way has made all the difference in how I feel! The last diet I was on I lost 90 pounds eating only their candy bars and drinking their powdered shakes. Torture! I’d regained 70 pounds when I got your book. I don’t want weigh myself but
before my clothes were too tight, now they’re starting to hang so I know the program is working. When I need to buy new trousers then I’ll look at the scales and even do a body-fat % test. I’m reading the section on walking for exercise and now it’s no longer a painful struggle, so I park a mile from work and walk the rest of the way and I enjoy every step. I can never thank you enough.

Luigi, I’m sure you saved my life. As a busy hairdresser I’d been working 18 hours a day seven days a week. The money was great but I had no life. My husband had left me and I consoled myself with donuts and coffee. Every morning I’d buy a dozen donuts and the largest coffee on the way to my salon. When I ran out I had a delivery of more donuts and coffee. That’s all I ate for at least 2 years. I had hit 360 pounds when a friend read your book to me while I cut hair. I had to sit on a high stool to work as my legs couldn’t support my weight. I had no neck and had fat hanging off me like bags of water flopping around if I moved. My belly flab hung down to my knees and my breasts hung down to where my belly should have been. Don’t even ask about the backs of my arms or thighs. When my friend finished reading your book to me I scoffed, “Who has time to do all of that?” She said, “We are going to do all of that!”
I closed my studio on Sundays and my daughter and I pre-packaged our week’s meals. I’d walk as far as I could which was limited by knowing I could make it back home. Maybe 200 yards!
I didn’t set a weight goal because I really didn’t think it was possible. But the first 60 pounds almost fell off and everybody was amazed. I’m at just under 200 pounds and things are moving slowly but consistently. I’m 5’10” tall, so now my goal is to reach 170 pounds by Christmas. Looking back, I cannot believe the condition I was in. I can stand up to cut hair and have restricted my hours from 8 to 8 with Tuesdays and Sundays off. I hope one day to meet you and give you a non-squishy bear hug!
With Love, Donna - Missouri

You should have charged me ten times the price of the weight loss book! My monthly food bill is down by more than 50%. I must have been eating like a pig. Snacking all the time and yes, I was one of those you mentioned, still eating while getting into bed.
I'm the leanest and the fittest I've ever been in my whole life yet I never feel urgently hungry.
So, taking your good counsel, I'll have my glass of red wine and a couple of squares of 80% dark chocolate each afternoon and because I love your writing style I'll read a few pages of one of your novels. I'll pick one and when I'm done expect to see my review on the Books Blog.
From the bottom of my heart, thanks
