10X is not just a diet, but returns your metabolism toward its natural state of function. Consider these FACTS:
Our bodies evolved BEFORE agriculture, food processing, and synthetic food chemistry produced, distributed, and marketed carbohydrates in abundance, and before carbohydrates became the predominant dietary energy source.
Carbohydrates are not stored in the body. When you’ve eaten more carbs than you need, they’re stored as fat. When the carbs are stored or used as energy, YOU’RE HUNGRY AGAIN, and eat again despite having plenty of energy stored as fat. Our fiber poor carbohydrate rich diet is inconsistent with how our metabolism evolved for survival.
When your body burns (oxidizes) the tens of thousands of fat calories you’ve stored away as extra weight, you lose that weight. You can only lose weight by using the stored gas (fat) in your tank, and by NOT continuing to fill up with additional fuel (calories).
When you eat carbohydrates, blood insulin level immediately rises, and STOPS the burning of fat for energy. The BEST WAY to burn off extra pounds of stored fat is to keep your blood insulin level LOW by NOT CONSUMING SUGARS OR CARBOHYDRATES.
It takes three to four weeks of low carbohydrate intake for your body to shift into a state of continually using stored fat as a preferred energy source. Once your body has made this transition in “energy partitioning” toward “keto-adaptation,” you will lose weight consistently toward your goal.
The benefit of telemedicine includes prescriptions sent electronically to your local pharmacy for appetite suppressant medication that facilitates keto-adaptation and ends the carbohydrate addiction developed over a lifetime of concentrated carbohydrate consumption.
Success depends on YOUR DECISION to achieve your goal weight, and all of the resulting benefits. You must WANT TO LOSE for the program to be successful. If you have made the decision and if you stick to the program, YOU WILL LOSE your extra weight. If you are suffering from the continuous burden of heavy, JUST DO IT!
The foundation of 10X is Ten to One (10:1) on nutrition labels: Ten Calories or less for each One Gram of Protein. If a food item contains a 10:1 ratio or less (5:1, 6:1, 7:1, 8:1, and 9:1 OK) of calories to grams of protein, it’s OK, whatever else is on the label. There are two exceptions to the ratio. The first is green vegetables. The ratio for green vegetables doesn’t matter. You can eat all you want of lettuce, celery, spinach, broccoli, asparagus, peppers, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, cucumber, and other greens. The second exception is very low-calorie foods with zero protein. These are also OK, and include hot sauce, many mustards, balsamic vinegar, seasonings, diet soda, other diet foods sweetened with erythritol, stevia, or other low-calorie sweeteners.
I cannot say enough about how much I respect Dr. Laverson. I am a Registered Nurse and took my time going to various doctors for a consultant. When I met Dr. Laverson, he was honest and genuinely wanted to do whatever would make me happy about my body. He is the only doctor that told me I might not need surgery if I simply lost weight first. Yes, a surgeon talked me out of a very expensive procedure – can you believe that! To date I have lost over 25 pounds on Dr. Laverson’s medically supervised plan. And I’m still going strong! I look and feel better than I have in a few years. I highly recommend Dr. Laverson – not only because he is a skilled and talented surgeon, but because he is honest and ethical, and wants to help you.
Dear Dr. Laverson,
Thank you so much for your guidance and encouraging me to change my eating habits. These past 3 months have given me a healthier lifestyle and a slimmer body too! With your support I was able to find the right food for my metabolism and do it for me! I feel and look so much better. Thanks again!
Thank you Dr. Laverson. People think I am crazy because I say “I don’t eat carbs”. It really is not hard once you get in the right mindset. I just don’t eat them. I had to go buy smaller pants and was caught between sizes so I chose the larger size. Big mistake. It has been two weeks and they are already getting too big. Same problem with buying new bras. This is certainly a good problem to have. The docs at work have started noticing and asking me if I am losing weight. It feels really good. Thanks again Steve. You are AMAZING!!!
Dear Dr. Laverson,
Thank You so much for your valued advice . The Ten to One regimen you had me on allowed me to Lose 45lbs. My life is so much better now and at age 67 I’m still able to beat the tennis pros from time to time. The system works.
