I forgot 1 other thing.  I was amazed to see that the creator/founder would take a special interest, and actually answer questions. You don’t see that kind of interest from other “health/diet” experts.  Name another author who is so involved with his readers, and often helping them on a 1 on 1 basis. You can't. God bless you Roger.

Its so nice to meet all of the newcomers and I encourage all with LDL, its a  wonderful program.
Sandy...I also have 7 children --- 4 girls, 3 boys. They are aged 17 to 3.  YOur children may kick and scream with the changes but I found from the beginning just placing lots of cut up melons strawberries etc with their meals they began eating and liking it.  Before that it was always brownies, cake , cookies, etc.... we started LDL in Ocotober and love it.  WIthin 2  months I had lost those 20 pounds so many pregnancies had left me with :-) and the  good news is they are still gone!  I wish you the best of luck and I am so glad you had a good vacation.....I love Galveston....I wish you the best of luck!!

Hey Tom, It is great to see that you have joined the rest of us in a new way of eating, and a much better way of enjoying life.  I am replying to you because we have a common thread between us.  We were both about the same size until about four months ago. That is when I started LDL. I have to tell you to relax and be confident.  This program was made for people like us. I have lost 55 lbs in four and a half months.  I have more energy, and feel better than I have in years, and the amazing thing is that it was NOT hard.  Knowing some of the feelings you have, I am here to tell you that you will do fine.  If you follow the book, then your body has to lose weight... I have a lot more to go, but I know it will happen. I am at a platau right now, but I know that will go away shortly and I will be on my way again. Roger has told me that Plataus are not unusual, and  are also  temporary.  Tom, just remember to ask questions when you have them, and enjoy the ride.  you sound like you have made the commitment to lose, and that is half the trip... Good luck and keep us posted.
Mike

Hi!  I'm Cathy.  I found an article about Roger's story in a health insert in our local paper here in Tampa, FL.  After gaining back a lot of weight I had previously battled, I had been looking for a diet option and was not finding anything I was happy with.  Suddenly, I just felt this was it and I immediately ordered the book.  I started the plan the next day after getting the book.  It does not feel like a diet!  In about 6 weeks I have lost just under 20 pounds.  I'm in a bit of a stall right now but still losing small amounts periodically and I'm quite ok with that.  I think I don't get enough beans in the diet and then I find myself hungry at night.  I'm working on that.  I do love the foods I can eat though and I really do not feel that I am on a diet.  My husband is amazed at how much I can eat and still lose.  It's great when he says, "Are you sure you should be eating that?" and I get to say yes and two days later tell him how much I lost. 

Thanks too for the support on the bulletin boards.  Great ideas, suggestions and support!

Hi, Cathy. Congratulations on your weight loss! We are all proud of what you have accomplished, and isn't it great to have your hubby questioning how much and what you are eating and still losing weight. 20 pounds in 6 weeks is wonderful! You can expect a plateau, because the average weight loss is about 2 to 2 1/2 lbs. per week.

Don't forget to eat until you are full at dinnertime, and if you're still hungry at night, have at the sweetest fresh fruits and fruit smoothies, or if fruit just doesn't do it for you, go ahead with the popcorn (with olive oil sprayed on, or I Can't Believe It's Not Butter spray) or dry roasted soy nuts mixed with raisins, or corn thins with Veggie Cheese (I like the Jalapeno flavored) or fat-free cheese (I like the sharp) melted on top in the micro (with even salsa on top of that), or veggies with as fat-free dip as possible.

Also, you're probably right on when you say that you are not eating enough recipes with beans, corn and peas in them...do yourself a favor and print out Little Mary's brand new recipe for the Thickest Tomato Soup Ever...we had it last night, and are going to have it again today! It's Full of red beans...not kidney beans, but red beans. Also, print out from the New Recipes Board the Beef Potato Pie, the Tamale Pie, the Potato Pancakes, the Mashed Potatoes, the Pizza Soup, etc....all of which contain beans, corn or peas.

Further, please do me the favor of posting your weight loss success story on the Testimonials Board, where more people will read it as a New Topic than will read it here as a response to a New Topic.

Thanks, and God bless,

Roger Troy

Hi,

My name is Ruth and I just happened to see Roger on an interview Thursday and Friday on Channel 8 in the mornings.  I called Friday and ordered his book and I am very anxious to receive it.  My goal is to lose approximately 50 to 60 pounds.  I really feel that my husband will want to get involved too.  Because of his enthusiasm, I am looking forward to getting started.  My wish is to have as much success as Roger has.

Hello!

My name is Andy. I live in a small town outside of Houston, Texas. I've always struggled with my weight. In high school and college I managed to keep it down. I transfered and moved to Houston the last two years of college and when I did I moved into a very stressful situation.
I've always been a stress eater, but like Roger says in the book I eat regardless of my emotion.
I used my emotions as justification but I am seriously addicted to food. I ballooned up to 475 lbs.

Amazingly despite my weight I got married to a wonderful woman and we have an amazing little boy who just turned 17 months old.

I've tried everything. I did the Weight Watchers, and the Atkins, and even paid over 700 to a place called quick weight loss whose commercials claimed I could eat whatever I wanted but in reality they put me on the strictest diet of my life and then belittled me when I deviated from it. I gave up on it despite my huge investment.
My wife and I have been married for two years now. I've never weighed less than 429 and that was after I went on 1500 calorie a day diet for a while.
I'm at my wit's end. I've even been seriously considering the weight loss surgeries despite the fact that as many as 1 in 200 people DIE from it.
I hope that I can use Roger Troy's method as effectively as he did. I just finished reading it and it seems like something I may actually be able to do.
I'm optimistic, but I've failed so often... Well let's just say that Roger Troy's story and mine are not that dissimilar.
Hello to you all and here's hoping that i can finally start down the road to good health.

Hi, Ruth and Andy. By the way, Ruth is my mom's name. Welcome to our bulletin boards. Both of you be sure to eat as often as you can and as much as you want of all the recipes with all the different beans, corn, popcorn and peas in them, as well as salads (with your favorite dressing on the side and with aged cheese crumbles on top)...be sure eat Let's Do Lunch Burgers (from the text of the book and better tasting and more moist than any burger I have ever eaten!), R.M.'s Made Rights (sloppy Joes that are the best tasting on the planet!) from the Recipes Chapter of the book, and be sure to print out the new recipes that are here on the New Recipes Board, like:

Little Mary's thickest, most filling Tomato Soup ever (the absolute best tasting tomato soup I have ever eaten!)

Potato Pancakes (made with blended butter beans and better tasting than any French fry you have ever had!)

Pizza Soup (made with pureed pinto beans and better tasting than any pizza you have ever tried!)

Beef Potato Pie (the top made from blended butter beans and better tasting than any pot pie you have ever tasted!)

All the different bean soups, including the Let's Do Lunch Bean Soup from the text of the book (there are so many great-tasting bean soup recipes that it's hard to single one out as the best tasting...but combined, these are the best tasting bean soups that have ever passed my lips!).

You are going to love Let's Do Lunch, just as all of us on these boards do, and you are going to end up saying what we all said after reading Let's Do Lunch..."I didn't believe it because it sounds too good to be true...but it works!"

God bless and enjoy!

Roger Troy

Hi everyone! My name is Steffie! I saw Roger on our local Great Day Houston Program, a few weeks ago. I don't normally watch this show, but tuned in that day. I truly believe that the Good Lord has called me to this program. I purchased Roger's book, and finished reading it last night. I started the LDL Program today.

I have 100 pounds to lose. I have been addicted to diets most of my life, even when I maintained  normal weight. I think I have tried every diet imaginable. I have enough registration bokks from a  well known weight lose program to probably wallpaper a room in my home. I even, did a 500 calorie liquid fast at one time. I lost 70 pounds and put it back on very quickly.

I am so thankful to have found this program. I believe Roger has been called to help with the truly growing obesity problem in our country. I was so amazed to see that profits from the sale of this book go to charity and that it wasn't another quick fix diet book written by a author/nutritionist looking to get wealthy. How surprised I was to see that Roger answers so many of the posts written on the bulletin boards. Thank you so much Roger,for your concern and care!

I also thank so many of you for the wonderful recipes that have been posted. I made one for lunch and it was delicious!

I would appreciate any words of wisdom, encouragement, etc. I have several questions, and will post them at a later time. God bless you all!

Hi everyone! My name is Jennifer. I was introduced to LDL by my brother who purchased the book for me a couple of months ago.  I never had to worry about what I ate until I hit about 30. Like many others, I have tried a lot of other eating plans with very short lived success.  With every plan, I realized after a few weeks, I wouldn't be able to live my life eating that way. I could not see myself eliminating an entire food group forever, nor could I see myself constantly budgeting my daily food allowance. I started LDL yesterday, I went through my entire day without hunger, and without cravings! My brother has done very well on the program and he is quite an inspiration, I know I can always call him to compare notes, recipes etc. My only concern is that my husband is not on board with me. I don't want to be tempted by his food choices, yet he won't budge and give it a shot with me. Is anyone else in this same boat? What have you done about it? Thank you Mr. Wilson for sharing this with the public!

Hi, jenibug. Welcome to our bulletin boards. Many, many others have been in the same boat you are now rowing. What you need to do is, if your hubby asks you for a certain food for dinner, then fix his in the way he wants it, and fix yours the Let's Do Lunch way. For example, if he wants fried chicken, then fry his and grill or blacken yours.

If he doesn't ask you for a certain food prepared a certain way, then just fix him recipes like Let's Do Lunch Burgers and Let's Do Lunch Bean Soup from the text of the book, as well as R.M.'s Made Rights, etc. from the Recipes Chapter of the book, as well as Potato Pancakes or Mashed Potatoes, Pizza Soup, Beef Potato Pie, Tamale Pie, all the different bean soups, etc. from the New Recipes Board on these bulletin boards, and just don't tell him that he is eating diet food...believe me, he will love everthing he is eating, and he won't know the difference!

There will be occasions when it will be impractical to do this, and what some folks have done is to prepare Let's Do Lunch meals ahead of time and freeze them, so that all you have to do is "thaw and cook" your meals, without having to prepare them.

Hope this helps.

Also, please do me the favor of asking your brother to Register on our bulletin boards and post his success story on the Testimonials Board as a New Topic...or, if he's not on the Internet, then could you please post his success story for him.

Thanks, and God bless,

Roger Troy
