People want drugs, plain and simple. If they were not using them, they wouldn't keep making them. I have heard so many people in my life say that they would rather take a pill and suffer a few side effects so they can live the way they want, rather than have to restrict themselves in any way.
It is madness. Plain and simple!
For most people that seems to be the very sad truth. I have a friend who is suffering severely from many illnesses, most of which likely could be helped much by this kind of diet. He's open to talking to me about it but says he doesn't ever think he could do it. Makes me very sad--this is a genuinely good man who helps people to the extent it puts him in physical danger and he doesn't deserve to suffer.
Then there's the other dear friend who just wants to lose weight the "easy" way and is starting and HCG program. I've given her books and DVDs, but the lure of the magic of a shot appeals to her more.
I have relatives I'd love to see try this plan. Diabetes and obesity is running rampant in my family.
I guess the adage "God helps those who help themselves" applies here, but it makes me very, very sad that the answer to many problems is so simple and available for FREE (a wonderful gift to the world from Dr M) yet people can be so resistant.
