I could not lose consistently on any diet and tried them all. My doctors all agreed that I should have a gastric bypass. I have Hashimoto's and Sjogren's so I was at my wit's end and sick of trying. I decided to try for a few weeks and see. Over five months, I have lost 60-65 lbs. It is a very strict diet but it works! I feel much better and I look better too. I am struggling to stay on and lose the rest of the weight but I have kept what I lost off. It is very quick in the beginning and costs about $100.00 a week. I have gone down 3 or 4 sizes and thrown out my heavy clothes. Finally. This works, try it.
You will feel better and get your energy back. Your joints will feel better, this diet is pretty anti-inflammatory. You take a lot of supplements but they help too.
I really haven't had any yet. My gallbladder is not great but it wasn't before the diet. I have no appendix so can't tell you about that. I think if you check with your doctor and follow this it seems ok.
