Doctor Reviews

  It's simply the best weight loss book ever written!

Every day in my medical practice I confront obesity and its related complications. In fact these may be the biggest issues I face as a physician for they can be far reaching beyond the waistline. Even mild obesity can cause imbalances in our bodies leading to high triglyceride counts, out of control cholesterol, insulin resistance, type two diabetes and heart disease.

 Obesity is an “equal opportunity” disease; it doesn’t discriminate based on race, social status, income or education.  The truth is we are all susceptible to its onslaught.  Doug Varrieur is a case in point. At the tender age of 12, Doug personified the fat kid, squeezing into size 38 jeans. By age 17 he had earned the nickname “Porky,” and by middle age Doug had developed type 2 diabetes and suffered a near-fatal heart attack.  At age 43, he made a conscious decision to make it his life's work to discover the answers to weight gain and weight loss. Luckily for us, he hit on a solution that not only changed his life but can change yours, too. Doug discovered that a single ingredient—hidden sugar—was responsible for his seemingly irreversible weight gain. After making this breakthrough, Doug lost 100 pounds, reversed his insulin resistance, and reversed his type two diabetes. Years later, he’s still trim, healthy, energized, and raring to help others make the same life-changing discovery.

The result of his seemingly never ending passion is this book. In its pages, Doug tells his own inspiring story and gives us some startling facts about the ingredient we all hate to love but simply can’t see, hidden sugar.  For instance, did you know that a medium order of fast-food french fries metabolizes into the glucose equivalent of eating about 15 teaspoons of table sugar? Or that 2 cups of raisin bran results in as much blood sugar as eating 20 teaspoons of table sugar?  

Doug has really demystified the processes that cause us to gain weight, and makes it easy to understand how to lose and then control weight,  type 2 Diabetes , and insulin resistance. His approach is so simple and clear anyone can follow his formula for success. The magic of his program is that it makes sense to everyone.
 I have always thought weight loss was very difficult and required more discipline than most of us have. But after reading this book I think you will see it is really quite simple. And it’s all backed by sound, scientific evidence. As a busy family physician I have long searched for a down to earth practical guide to losing weight. This book is that guide, whether you want to lose ten ponds or 100 pounds it lays down the foundation for you and holds your hand on your journey to a healthier life. It empowers and educates you for a lifetime of healthy eating and living. For the first time in your life you will discover exactly why your weight has been a problem for you and what to do about it.

For the serial dieter who has jumped from one fad to the next, dropping pounds and clothing sizes only to watch their waistline balloon a few months later, Doug’s simple, no-nonsense approach to losing weight and keeping it off represents real hope. If you can get hidden sugar out of your life you will not only get skinny “fast and easy” you will balance your blood sugar and reclaim your health and good spirits—without sacrificing great food or spending all your time at the gym. On Doug’s eating plan you won’t go hungry or feel deprived (the usual causes for falling off the wagon). Take a look at some of the delicious recipes and meal plans at the back of the book and say good-bye to the diet-starvation blues.

You’ve taken the first step by visiting this website. I’m sure you, like many of us have tried diet after diet with little or no long term success. The fact that you’re here tells me you have the desire to make changes in your life to lose weight and better your health.  Your desire coupled with the power of this book will be the formula for your life long success.

The whole key to weight loss and a healthier you begin with unveiling the truth about the ingredients that actually create FAT.  In the pages of FAT TO SKINNY you will see clearly what those ingredients are, how to avoid them and how to replace them with healthy alternatives.  

Human nature dictates that most people simply don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care. I can attest to the caring nature of the author. If there was ever a man on a mission to help you lose weight and re-gain your health it’s this man. You will go from FAT to SKINNY and best of all you will do it with help from a friend, someone who has “been there, done that”.  Doug Varrieur is not only my patient he is also an inspiration to all he comes in contact with.  I can’t emphasize enough what a service to society Doug has done by writing this book.  I urge you to read it and follow the plan for you too can go from FAT TO SKINNY, Fast and Easy!

Doug, You should have been a doctor!

In many ways what you’re doing now will make a bigger impact on the country’s health than anything a doctor could dream of accomplishing.

Dear Doug,

I am proud to be able to contribute in a small way to your efforts to enlighten people as to the true cause of weight gain, diabetes, high blood pressure, high-cholesterol and that thing called “metabolic syndrome”.  You should have been a doctor.  In many ways what you’re doing now will make a bigger impact on the country’s health than anything a doctor could dream of accomplishing.  I am so so pleased to have found a book that coincides with everything I have been telling my patients for years.  Now I can talk briefly with patients and hand them a book knowing that what is put forth in the text is everything I believe and transcends the stalled stale conversation of low carbs and exercise.  This is a seminal work that awakens us to what is all around us but yet invisible.  Like water to a fish we have been unable to see what has been in front of us all the time.  Water? What water I don’t see any water!  Sugar? What sugar? I don’t see any sugar! Unfortunately our bodies do see all the sugar and respond with obesity and “metabolic syndrome”.  This book is a must read for anyone interested in taking their health to the next level.   

Sincerely yours, Dr Paul Cump D.O. Johns Island SC
