Caprylic Acid, Capryla and My Weight Loss
For me, the Capryla tagline fits right on–it’s willpower in a bottle. In my case, caprylic acid was the key to ending 25 years of unsuccessful dieting.
Less than 5% of dieters succeed in getting the weight off and keeping it off for two years. Yet, over 80% of weight loss surgery patients succeed. This is simply because they have an internal mechanism that doesn’t allow them to overeat. In fact, they eat only about 500 calories a day after surgery.
Even as I faced the knife, I couldn’t stop eating. I was overwhelmed and sickened by my relationship with food–eating was my solution to every problem. Food was my master, my enemy, my comfort, my shame, my reward, my slow killer, yet my protector. Food calmed me down and gave me strength, food drained the life out of me.
An alcoholic can live without a drink, but a food addict can’t live without food.
I kept thinking about what would happen if I had that surgery–I’d be forced to eat less than 500 calories a day, and it was almost guaranteed I would lose the weight. As a surgery patient, that is accepted. As a dieter, it is extreme. We fat, dieting Americans are constantly warned to make sure we are “eating enough calories,” yet the method with the high success rate–weight loss surgeries–severely restrict calories into the low hundreds.
“Your metabolism will slow down,” they say. “Your body will think it’s starving.”
Is my body that stupid? Did my body really not know I had 80 pounds of extra fuel when it had to pull itself out of bed every morning? No one was starving anytime soon. How could my metabolism not know that? And, if that was true, that we need to get enough calories to lose weight, why did the weight loss surgery patients succeed, while the “make sure you get enough calories” camp continues to fail miserably?
As I stood at the brink of weight loss surgery, I wondered, “Is there a way to have an external mechanism, avoid surgery, but get the same results?” When I asked one gastroenterologist why I couldn’t just eat 500 calories on my own until the weight was off, he said I’d be too hungry to succeed. Only the surgery would stop the hunger.
Then, quite by accident, I found the external mechanism with Capryla. Cheap little inocuous white pills with essential fatty acids like caprylic acid, all derived from normal foods. In a week, it was like the shackles were loosed. Four days after I began taking , food lost all of its power over me. I could take it or leave it. I wasn’t hungry. I felt sane and clear-headed. My moods stabilized, my confidence soared. I only knew I was hungry when my stomach would rumble, and then I’d be fine with two bites of food. I was living like I’d had gastric banding–without going under the knife.
I lost 76 pounds in four months and I’ve kept it off. Please know, I was not a yo-yo dieter, I had been dieting for 25 years but never really lost. Except for two short exceptions at age 20 and 27, the scale only kept creeping up.
So, this site is dedicated to the amazing discovery I stumbled upon that finally made the impossible, possible. It didn’t require blood, financial investment or time. And for the first time in my life, my mind is free to think without constant thoughts of food dominating the mental conversation. I’m free at last.
I’m not the first to learn about or try caprylic acid for weight loss. This information simply shouldn’t be so hard to find that we have to stumble upon it. Everyone trying to lose weight should have this information so they can see if it works for them.
Take a look around the site and learn a bit more about caprylic acid. Of course, you can just run down to the store and start taking it and see if, after a week, it starts to help you. However, I recommend Capryla not only because they offer the best formula that combine a number of fatty acids and other nutrients, they also offer a lot of guidance about how to use it to succeed.
