    Non-weight other health benefits experienced as result of THD - share your experience

    Thread Starter: bonbon

    Thought I'd start a thread to hear what other non-weight health benefits you have experienced from following THD. Good to keep current and future followers

  • 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!

    We're talking diet injections, with Pippa Jones

    And now for diet injections

    Saturday’s Daily Mail had a front page advert for a Danish pharmaceutical company, Novo Nordisk. It wasn’t an advert placed by the company, but the headline “Miracle of Daily Diet Jab” is probably better than an advert that money can buy.

    The story was about a ‘new’ diet drug, which was approved by the European Medicines Agency on 23rd January 2015. It’s not a new drug, but its approval for obesity is new. The drug is called liraglutide. It was approved by the European Medicine Agency (EMA) for type 2 diabetes in July 2009 and it was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for type 2 diabetes in January 2010. It is marketed as “Victoza” for type 2 diabetes. It was approved by the US FDA for obesity on 29th December 2014, where it is marketed as “Saxenda.”

    Annie has had a bad relationship with food since infancy. Just over a year ago, Annie turned to The Harcombe Diet® to help achieve a major goal: lose seven stone by this February. Has she reached it?

    Can you tell us a little about yourself?
    My name is Annie Jeffery, I live near Lymington in the New Forest, and I’m about to reach my 60th birthday. I’ve had an interesting relationship with food - to put it mildly - but only now do I feel as though I am finally in control.

    It all started as a child. My mother was bipolar, and never very maternal. When I was nine, my parents divorced and my beloved grandfather died. My three sisters and I lived with my dad, and I found it very hard to visit my mother, whose behaviour was, at times, extremely unpredictable. Life was not that wonderful, and food seemed to be the only constant; it was the thing I used to self-medicate when times were tough.

    I had beef with uber amounts of crispy kale and an apple jus. Beautiful flavours, very low carb and I made it last a long time - it was soooo nice.
