Absolutely not. Our program is geared to provide satiety and you will always be full. In fact, most members are surprised at the amount of food one can consume and still lose weight.
The program is a healthy balance of proteins, specific types of complex carbohydrates, fruits, vegetables, dairy and unsaturated fats.
We understand that losing weight does not mean you want to stop living your life, which is why the Harvey Brooker Weight Loss for Men Inc. program also allows for a moderate amount of starchy vegetables, like potatoes and squash, as well as a moderate amount of alcohol.
The only proven method to sustaining weight loss is making permanent lifestyle changes. At Harvey Brooker Weight Loss for Men Inc., we will teach you how to make those changes while being supported, both during and after weight loss, by a team of men who have had the same experiences as you and understand what you’re going through.
Alcohol is on the plan, however if your drinking is not in moderation, you will not meet your weight loss goal. A moderate level is considered to be no more than two drinks per day. It stimulates your appetite and makes it harder to maintain self-control. Alcohol is loaded with calories and has no nutritional value. Too much alcohol will add fat to your waist size and increases your risk of high blood pressure and slows down the rate your body burns fat.
While we do recommend exercise, we have found that exercise alone does not lead to permanent weight loss. Only exercise coupled with structured, consistent healthy eating will get you the results you’re looking for.
