  • The Harcombe Diet Club RSS Feed

    Welcome to The Harcombe Diet Club! We have set this up for friends and fans of The Harcombe Diet and for people interested in finding out more about the diet, who hopefully will become friends and fans.

    The Harcombe Diet is a different approach to weight loss, encouraging you to eat naturally and move naturally. Overweight is about fat stored and losing weight is about encouraging the body to release stored fat. In no way is the body as simplistic as energy in = energy out – and, therefore, we do not need to put less energy in and/or try to get more energy out. We need to eat better, not to eat less.

    The club has three membership levels and you can sign up here.

    1) Forum Member. From a little more than £1 per month you can participate as often as you like in the lively club forum, get support from other club members and share your experiences and learnings with other members. You’ll no doubt come in asking ‘daft’ questions, but we don’t consider any question daft – many other members will dive in to help you within minutes (sometimes seconds!) Within weeks, if not days, you will be an expert helping others and this will feel so good!

    2) Club Member. From less than £1 per week, this is the most popular and best value club membership option. For barely the price of a cucumber, this will give you: full forum access; access to all the articles, videos, and the growing library of FAQ’s; and access to all back issues of our magazine “Diet & Health Today”. In this we cover the ‘big issues’ from “Why don’t I lose weight if I eat less?”; “Where do the calories go?!”; “Where does exercise fit in with weight loss?”; “Why have I got fat around my middle especially?”
    Club Membership also gets you access to a private 'Ask Zoe' forum, where you can get your more challenging questions answered by Zoe, herself.
    As soon as you join at this level (and you can unsubscribe at any time) you have immediate access to all back issues of the magazine, weekly diet tips and the full information ‘library’. This membership provides excellent value for money and is our most popular membership plan.

    3) Plus membership will give you everything that Club Membership offers – all the FAQ’s, videos, articles, magazine back issues, 'Ask Zoe' private forum, unmoderated forum access. PLUS – Plus members can have their own personal blog running and a personal photo album. You can customise your blog and many members are having great fun putting their experiences and opinions on line for others to see and to keep an online diary of their own progress. As the club is openly available for viewing, you can send friends and family the link to your blog so that they can follow you without needing to be members.

    There are a number of ‘super members’ in the club who are also on hand to answer your queries – we will be helping you together!

    Sarah Blenkinsop was lying in a hospital bed listening to a crash team working on the lady next door for many hours. It was the wake-up call she needed to improve her health. Seven months on and seven stone lighter, Sarah says The Harcombe Diet has probably saved her life.

    The Capetown LCHF Conference

    I don’t know where to start to report on last week’s conference. It was one of the best weeks of my life. From 7am to midnight, for 6 consecutive days, I was with my heroes: Gary Taubes (only there for 48 hours); Dr Michael Eades and his doctor wife Mary; Andreas Eenfeldt – the Scandinavian “Diet Doctor”; Professor Tim Noakes; Dr Stephen Phinney (over 60 journal articles on diet, exercise, fatty acids and inflammation ) and Dr Eric Westman (a global leader in ketogenic diets and preventative medicine).

    I then acquired new heroes: Dr Gary Fettke – a cancer survivor who is best known for diagnosing Billy Connolly’s Parkinsons Disease when they met in a hotel foyer in Los Angeles! Dr Jay Wortman, who manages his own type 2 diabetes with a LCHF diet and now that of hundreds of patients too and, one of the great finds of the week: Dr Jason Fung, who is my height and turning the diabetes world upside down.
