Finally! In just two weeks of being on the food tree plan as outlined in Dr. Elvebakk’s book combined with Burr Leonard’s The Bar Method (more on that in my next article), nearly 10 pounds has melted away! The Food Tree book is not a diet or weight loss program. Its the basics of using nutrition and proper eating to get to a healthy BMI. No gimmicks, pills, potions, or special food combining techniques. The key is education in Dr. Elvebakk’s book. This is also not a diet doctor guru either. Just a bariatric physician’s approach to shedding fat cells by not feeding them. The objective is to learn how to feed muscle, starve fat, and adjust food choices so that a patient learns how to use protein effectively. Price wise The Food Tree is very competitive and actually a deal compared to the more expensive commercial weight loss centers.
