Do You Have FLC Syndrome?
Posted on 22 January 2014
What is FLC Syndrome? Chances are, you have it.It affects nearly half of our population. It causes weight gain and resistance to weight loss. And it causes a whole list of chronic symptoms and diseases. Yet most people have no idea what causes it or how to fix it. The truth is most of us have experienced FLC Syndrome at some point in our lives. FLC Syndrome is when you Feel Like Crap. Even though most doctors don’t know how to diagnose and treat it, the science of Functional Medicine provides a clear road map for your way out of FLC!
How Do You Know If You Have FLC Syndrome?You have FLC Syndrome if you have any of these symptoms:
- Excess weight around the middle (belly fat)
- Crave sugar and refined carbs
- Binge on sugar or junk food
- Yo-yo dieting where you keep gaining back the weight
- Tired and sluggish
- Brain fog
- Joint pain or muscle aches
- Bloating, gas, diarrhea, or constipation
- Congestion, sinus problems, asthma
- Allergies or autoimmune diseases
- Skin problems—acne, eczema, psoriasis
- Mood problems like anxiety, depression, or insomnia
- Memory problems
- Low sex drive or function
- Just “feel like crap”
Food Is a DrugThere is a solution. It is one of the greatest medical advances of the 21st century. It is this: Food is the most powerful drug on the planet. The wrong food will make you sick (FLC Syndrome) and the right food will transform your body in just a few days. Food is medicine, and what you put at the end of your fork is far more powerful than anything you will find in a prescription bottle. After nearly three decades of medical practice and research and seeing over 15,000 patients, performing extensive metabolic and nutritional testing, and synthesizing thousands of research papers on the root causes of disease and FLC Syndrome, of weight gain, pre-diabetes, and type 2 diabetes, or what I like to call “diabesity,” I created a simple 10-day plan that can quickly reverse FLC Syndrome and help you lose significant amounts of weight quickly, safely, and sustainably.
The result is: The Blood Sugar Solution 10-Day Detox Diet.We did a trial on 600 people, and here are their results:
- Lost over 4000 pounds in 10 days (average of about 8 pounds each)
- Blood sugar dropped an average of 20 points
- Blood pressure dropped an average of 10 points
- Ended sugar and carb cravings
- Reduction of all symptoms from all diseases by 62% in 10 days (FLC Syndrome)—there is no drug on the planet that can achieve those results
- Many went on to lose 50 to 100 pounds and reverse type 2 diabetes and many other health problems as they continued on the program
The Secret of The 10-Day Detox DietThe secret of The Blood Sugar Solution 10-Day Detox Diet is this: we simply swap out processed foods, sugar, flour, and inflammatory foods and add delicious, whole, fresh, real, anti-inflammatory, detoxifying food, and the body does the rest. The food industry’s dirty little secret is that they have intentionally hooked us on addictive, hyper-processed, hyper-palatable,“food-like” substances that have hijacked our taste buds, hormones, our brain chemistry, and our metabolism. The scientific verdict is in: sugar and flour and processed foods are highly biologically addictive. In fact, sugar has proven to be eight times as addictive as cocaine. Think cocaine cookies, morphine muffins, or heroin lollypops. The 10-Day Detox Diet is a goof-proof, step-by-step,science-based program that resets your hormones and brain chemistry and quickly lets you take ownership back over your body. The truth is, our biology has been held hostage by food terrorism, and The 10-Day Detox Diet is a Navy SEALraid taking it back. And it doesn’t take long. If you are thinking you can’t give up sugar or bread for 10 days, then, for sure, you are an addict. If you start wondering about artificial sweeteners or alternatives to sugars, it is a profound clue that you don’t own your body anymore—the food industry does.
Why It Is Not Your Fault You Are Overweight:The era of blaming overweight people for being lazy gluttons is over. That is exactly what our government and the food industry would have use believe by saying its all about personal responsibility, all about moderation, that there are no good or bad foods, that all we need to do is exercise more and eat less. But here’s the truth: there are bad foods, there are toxic and addictive foods we should not be eating, and 100 calories of almonds is VERY different from 100 calories of soda. Any fifth grader knows that. But most nutrition experts, doctors, and our policy makers still haven’t figured out that a calorie is not a calorie! Some calories make us sick and fat, and some make us thin and healthy. In my book, The Blood Sugar Solution 10-Day Detox Diet, I expose the lies that keep us fat and sick and use the latest science to help you end FLC Syndrome forever!
