Hello my friend, I was FAT all my life and no matter what I did I couldn't drop the weight. One day I decided to make it my life's work to discover the answers to weight gain and loss in the human body. I found the secrets and melted off over 100 pounds, reversed my insulin resistance, balanced my blood sugar and cured my type 2 diabetes. That was over 7 years ago and I'm still a 32 inch waist today. Here are a few words from some readers.........

*****I have lost 119lbs of FAT in 96 days! FAT TO SKINNY is amazing! Dear Doug, I'm so proud of you for beating your child hood problems with your weight. If you had not gone through that, we wouldn't be reading your book would we? You saved my life and I owe you so much. I was about to give up and have never quit anything in my life. I bought your book on Feb 14th 2009. I lost 119 pounds of fat in 96 days! Fifty people from the club have bought your book ! I will continue to recommend it to everyone I meet. God bless you and your wife.!!!! Shawn Goble Safety Harbor, FL

*****Book helps readers burn fat, control diabetes II. "Varrieur writes with a straight forward, simple style. In the 180-page how to book, the font size is larger than that of traditional books, many words are in all caps to emphasize certain points, and pages are covered with graphics and pictures to keep the attention of readers. The author lays out facts in an uncomplicated manner, making this book both readable and understandable. The book is quick and concise". -Justin Waybright, staff writer, THE MOUNTAINEER NEWSPAPER

*****On Sept. 10, I began to eat according to your plan. It was fairly easy to stick to the plan, since I didn't get as hungry as I used to when I would be on a "diet". I have now, on December 8, lost 30 pounds and am keeping my blood sugar level below 100 with no medication. At my last lab visit to my doctor, my HBa1c was 6.2 and my cholesterol levels were all great. I am very pleased at how much better I feel (and look.) Sincerely, Clarine G. Best

*****Say goodbye to your gut! I lost 50 pounds with FAT TO SKINNY! Thanks Doug! Gary Portesy, FL

*****I've been doing it for 4 months now after reading your book in April and have never looked back since. I've lost 51 pounds so far, and the weight keeps coming off. The book was totally worth it!!! Shepherd

*****Hey Doug, what you've done for me is priceless, I finally hit my goal weight of 123, I lost a total of 30 pounds and I'm not having a problem maintaining at all, I've totally changed my lifestyle and feel awesome. Cheers, Laura

*****My son and I began the Fat to Skinny eating plan and I went down three jean sizes (12 (almost a 14) to a large 6) in just three months! Guess what? I love the new skinny me and all the compliments constantly coming my way! My knees are rejoicing, no longer giving me grief and I feel so much younger and nimble! There is a skip in my step that I didn't even realize was missing. I am a firm believer and everywhere I go I share the eating plan that has given me back a more youthful experience and great enjoyment. Diana L. Flegal PA

*****FAT to SKINNY Fast and Easy! is not a gimmick. It's a wonderful healthy eating plan that works with the bodies natural metabolism to burn fat and balance blood sugar. Over 175 full color pages of easy to read information in large print simple to understand and implement. Read it and enjoy your journey from FAT to SKINNY!

Utterly horrible!

I don't know what I hated more, the layout, or the author's facination with the word FAT, which was higlighted on EVERY single page!
I kept waiting for the author to make his point, which he never did, just kept reiterating the basics.
Complete waste of money and will...

Complete waste of money and will certainly not be recommending this.

    "Fat to Skinny-Fast and Easy!" by Doug Varrieur

    Now I have been working hard at losing weight for some time and I promise you it is not easy for me. But it is good to have the tools on hand to help me make the right decisions. This book would be great to use to help your kiddos learn good eating habits from the get go. First there is the Sugar Proof technique. What is that?

    * Spot the hidden SUGAR
    * Understand how to read labels
    * Get your children involved
    * Act immediately
    * Remove all the food and drinks that metabolize into blood sugar
    * Prepare your family meals
    * Replace the foods that metabolize into sugar with foods that dont
    * Organize a SUGAR PROOF gang
    * Offer you help in teaching others wheat you've learned
    * Forget everything you've been taught

    It does help to have a "game" with kids. They tend to want to be part of the GANG and to win at what they are doing. So I see how this can help them. I do like the way the book is laid out. Great color and easy to read. Also some fantastic recipes to use too! My favorite was the MacAFoney and Cheese. You might look around and see how much help you can get in aiding to your diet with this great tool of a book.
