Robert: loss of appetite

Posted by Pam on September 04, 1998 at 00:43:53:

Hi Bob,

As I begin week 3 of the agriculturist diet, something new has come up. I seem to have largely lost my appetite. Believe me, this is highly unusual for me. Food just doesn't seem to appeal to me. I was wondering if this is a reaction you've seen before? Should I change anything I'm doing? Do you think it could be related to the colonics I just went through, or to where I am in my menstrual cycle?

Thanks,
Pam

Pam,

This loss of appetite is due to the colonics AND your Agriculturist metabolism.

As you know Agriculturists feel much better when fasting and should always leave the dinner table 'a little hungry' if they want to feel their best. Overeating is disasterous for Agriculturists.

When Agriculturists fast (or eat smaller amounts) it is easier for them to normalize back to their optimal plasma pH. The colonics have speeded that process. When you are at that optimal plasma pH you will find that you have very little in the way of hunger.

I am a Hunter-Gatherer at the opposite end of the metabolic spectrum -- but like you have very little in the way of hunger. Unlike you I would NOT do well with fasting and therefore I must rely on my watch to let me know that it's time to eat rather than my hunger.

Bob

Dear Pam,

Your note tells me that you are over weight & that this has been a struggle for you. Let me know if I am right or wrong. If I am right, I think I can help explain what you are experiencing.

Walt,

I have struggled with my weight for the last 10 years. Currently it is much better than it has been in a long time. I am 67.5" tall and I weigh about 163. A year ago I weighed 191 pounds. An ideal weight for me is about 140-145.

Dear Pam,

You might consider that the reason you have been having trouble with your weight is DIRECTLY related to what you are doing with Robert's help.

Congratulations, Walt

Walt,

I know diet is only one leg of the wellness triumvirate, but I am CONVINCED that Bob's approach is precisely what I have been looking for. By the time I met him here, I had despaired of ever returning to my ideal weight and entered into his program in search of improved health, with or without weight loss. Well, in 3 weeks I have lost 9 pounds. This has happened with NO effort, NO cravings, and NO hunger. In addition to weight loss, my energy level is improving daily, I am frequently asked what I am doing to make my skin look so beautiful, my eyes are clearer, shopping is easier and faster, and I have gained a new reverence for food. And something tells me that this is just the beginning of the benefits I will ultimately gain. Thank you for providing a forum where I was able to learn about his work.

Thanks, Pam!

I agree with you that Bob is an invaluable addition to the learning opportunity that this website is.

The problem with his information is NOT that it does not work but that it takes a pretty big commitment in learning & practicing to find out which diet is best for that person. For those willing to put out that much effort, it can be literally life-saving.

I tend to aim toward enhancing the "web" of the person's total function. That, too, takes a significant amount of effort & commitment on the part of the "seeker". However, I can predict some improvement in the most people--with the least information about that person--and the least expenditure of effort on that person's part with the total-body approach.

THEN, as the person sees results, they become more convinced of the valididty of a wellness approach and so are willing to put out the effort to do more complex things like these specific diets.

Congratulations!

Walt
