The best way to keep your weight down is to understand what makes you hungry. Basically, when we take fat out of our diets, we are hungry all the time. Hunger is turned off by stopping a local hormone in the stomach called "Gastrin" and also by feedback to the brain fromstretch receptors in the stomach. Gastrin is best turned off by fats and oils.  

Stretch receptors respond to bulky foods like a lot of organic mixed green salad, brocolli, green beans, cauliflower, artichokes, tomato, olives, ochra, squash, zucchini, asparagus, celery, mushrooms, hearts of palm every day. Your salad every day should equal the size of 2 baseballs or more. Before eating salad, soak your salad in one part vinegar and 4 parts water for 2 minutes only and then rinse with water. This will kill the bacteria often found on salad. Steel -cut oatmeal microwaved with low-cal almond milk is good bulk for the stomach also and will not raise your blood sugar.

The best oil or fat is "monosaturated" fat found in extra virgin olive oil, grapeseed oil and evtra virgin organic avocado oil - all available at Walmart. They all have polyphenols which are very good for you. The highest polyphenol content olive oils are Kirkland, Bertolli, Newman's and Colvita brands. Get 6 tablespoons of these oils daily and you will be able to shut off your cravings for high glycemic carbs. You can add these oils to Atkins drinks or to the lowest calorie Almond or Almond-Coconut milk you can find. The avocado oil is basically tastless - and you won't even notice it in your drink. You should put these oils on your salad but since they fall to the bottom of the bowl, you may not get your full dose of oils that way.

High glycemic carbs (see a list of them on the next page) go straight to belly fat and liver fat. Try your best to avoid them as they are as addicting as cocaine!

Eat no more than 50 grams of carbohydrates per day and no more than 100 grams of protein a day. If you eat more than 100 g of protein a day, the body will produce carbs in the liver from the extra protein - and you will defeat the purpose of your low carb diet. 50 g of carb a day and 100 g of protein a day equal only to 600 cal a day – so you must get the extra calories (660 calories) from fat or oil.

We no longer need be afraid of eating saturated fats in red meat, chicken, pork, dairy and coconut oil. Only 20 percent of your cholesterol in the blood comes from your diet. If your cholesterol is high, it is easily controlled with one very safe pill a day. However, red meat or nitrate-containing meat like hot dogs and corned beef should only be eaten once a week. Also, be cautious about eating fast foods which are often fried with reused oils which are toxic (especially to pregnant women). Try to drink at least 6 glasses of liquid a day when on this diet. Stevia is the only artificial sweetener we feel is healthy but it has been shown recently the sweet tastes actually stimulate insulin production in the body - and insulin is lipogenic (creates fat). If you are diabetic, ask Dr. Gaber which diabetic medicines must be stopped before this diet is started. We have been able to get several diabetics off insulin or other diabetes meds completely with this diet.
