Elimination Diet Challenge Day 10

Well, 10 days have passed and, unless you're doing something wrong (like cheating) you should be seeing and feeling at least a few results from the program by now.

I've been getting emails from people everyday telling me about the results people are getting and, well, some of them are simply amazing!

6lbs, 8lbs, 10lbs and even 12lbs in the last 10 days. Supposedly impossible when you speak to the mainstream fitness industry and the medical community about what's possible and yet, well, it's happening.

In fact, that's what I wanted to talk about today.

I wanted to ask you if you'd want to be featured in the posts I'll be making in the next few days.

Now, you don't have to have full on photos and measurements if you want to (though that would be great) but even if you'd take a minute or 2 to write in about the results you've achieved so far I'd really appreciate it.


Well, for a very simple reason actually.

People want to know!

They want to know what to expect, they want to know that the elimination diet works and, most of all, they want to know that this is real and not just a figment of Dax Moy's marketing imagination.

By posting in you'd be a source of motivation and inspiration for over 30,000 people who currently receive my elimination diet newsletter and a reminder about what is possible and probable when you commit.

Think about it, there's nothing like hearing of success to make you feel more motivated right?

So, c'mon, leave me a message below. Tell me what you've accomplished so far... and be specific : )

Speak soon!

Dax Moy

P.S - I've been asked about food ideas and resources I trust for the elimination diet.

Well, as well as my own cookbook that you'll find at I also recommend Rosa Coelho's Excellent 101 Healthy Recipe's For The Office as it fills in some of the blanks about how to fit the diet into worklife. You can read more about it HERE

I've been battling my way down from 20st since Xmas - I hit a wall at 16st - 16 4 to be precise - 10 days on elimination with exercise to match and I'm through 16 and into the 15's - this works!!!

Dax - I have lost 4 pounds as of this morning, after being on a weight loss plateau for about a year. I originally lost 20 pounds last year, then saw a couple creep back to stay. I don't measure inches but I know clothes are starting to fit looser and a friend I hadn't seen in a month asked if I had lost weight. Four pounds may not sound like a lot, but I am an athletic person with fairly low body fat to start. My ideal weight would be 138 and 17% bf. (not to say I wouldn't love 130!) Losing these last 10 pounds would mean improving my running times and getting rid of the last bit of flab around my waist, arms and butt. It would also mean a happier me. I am 48 years old and determined to prove to all the people who told me "once you're forty, it's all downhill. Your metabolism slows, etc etc." I tried doing this diet last June, but ignored the part that said "all or nothing" and allowed myself wine or beer on the weekend, which led to other cheats, which led to failure. This time I am determined to follow this through and possibly stick with it longer, until I reach that magic number on the scale. Oh and I love your workouts, they are very similar to the circuit training I've been doing, and more variety is always good. Thanks for doing this. Char

I am working on those last stubborn 10 pounds and I am aiming at losing 4 inches on my waist. I have been exercising regularly for the past 10 months, but needed to clean up my nutrition and decided this was the diet to try. I am happy to say that I have knocked off 3 pounds and have lost an inch around the waist, an inch on the bust and an inch around the hips. And this is only Day 10. I have found this elimination diet a challenge, but very rewarding. The first 4 days were the toughest and my husband was ready to tell me to quit because I was so grouchy. But by about Day 5, I was feeling better and started to really notice a "clean feeling" inside. I still have days where I really crave sugar (my weakness), but my body is already telling me I will feel miserable if I give in to temptation. Thanks, Dax, for your motivation!

I followed this program religiously for 90 days and lost 30 pounds,I relaxed a tiny bit and now after 90 days later I still had not gained any weight. I want to continue to lose more so I decided to be more focused and once again I am completely on board with the program. 100% ED lifestyle. In the past 10 days without excercise I have lost another 4 pounds. This program works. It's not easy but well worth the effort.

I have been doing this for 10 days and I have lost 4 pounds so far. It would have been more i'm sure but I drank alcohol at the weekend! (it was my hen weekend). I'll keep you posted as to how my elimination diet goes over the next 5 days and let you know! And this is without exercise too.

Well I had an expensive weekend in terms of regressing 4lbs in 4 days in edinburgh but back on track and so far 11 lbs or 5 kilos down and i can see a body shape again as i'd got a bit square on the waistline. finding it hard to make the time to excercise. even with the Gr8 short plans Dax shows so that is my goal for this week! It all makes sense nutritionally too.

OK, I'm finally jumping in to the elimination diet. Finished day 1 on day 16 of the latest blogs. I've read enough, and am fed up enough with my failure to lose much weight by half measures to go on the elimination diet.
