I agree with Tex, Andrea!... Some folks just don't really want to let go of their addiction(s).
You know the kind.
They're constantly looking for a "magic pill" or "silver bullet" to weight loss.

Eating low carb got a bad rep that dates back to the early 70's original Atkins Diet.
Since then, little has changed.
It's up to us to help get the word out about FTS! ;D

What you do today is what matters!

Yes! As soon as I say 'low carb' somebody says "oh yeah, the Atkins diet" and I get to explain that it's not Atkins!

I believe high carb (sugar) foods were responsible for many unpleasant things I used to live with.
Here are a few with which that I had frequent visits...

Acid Reflux
Excessive gas (both ends)
Diarrhea
Sleep Apnea (excessive snoring)
Perpetual "tired" feeling (regardless of sleep)
Constantly hungry
Cravings for junk foods
etc... etc...

I thank the Lord and FTS for the relieving of these miseries!!! ;D ;D ;D

I haven't had to take antibiotics for anything or cold medicine since starting FTS in April of 2010.  No matter how many of my students get sick, I don't seem to catch anything. It has been great!

Wow, Donna!... Now that you mention it, I don't think gotten sick with a cold, flu, etc. since I started FTS!
Used to be, I could count on being sick at least once in the Spring and/or the Fall.

Oh, the blessings of FTS!!! :) :) :) :) :)

I've only been on FTS for 6 months, but no sniffles here.
