A Real Dream Diet !

Like many professionals, Ivan Gavriloff juggles a demanding schedule that includes long work days and frequent business lunch and dinners. He knows firsthand how this lifestyle affects the waistline. In the past, he had a tendency to put on weight easily. In fact, he had tried numerous diets, but was unsuccessful at keeping off the extra weight over the long term, until quite by accident, he was introduced to the Fork It method.

As a specialist in innovation and creativity, Ivan is accustomed to tackling challenges in nonconventional ways. He is also a firm believer in monitoring dreams to gain insight into our unconscious thoughts. So, naturally his own dream of a flashing message about eating dinner with a fork sparked his curiosity and intuitive sensibility. He analyzed the dream for its meaning and message. The idea itself seemed innovative and quirky, but he had no idea if it was an effective way to lose weight. He decided to seek out professionals who would know the answer-- physicians, psychologists and nutritionists.

Months were spent interviewing French medical specialists who considered the viability of this method from physiological, psychological and nutritional viewpoints. In the end, the findings were extremely positive.

The method supports a nutritionally balanced diet. It helps to establish healthy eating habits. It provides a safe and effective weight loss plan, while avoiding the dangerous pitfalls common to yo-yo dieting. Its non-restrictive approach to eating is much more liberating than the traditional diets based on calorie counting and food limitation. Lastly, it is easy to incorporate into a daily routine and doesn’t hinder social and familial dining.

This dream diet and its many benefits are now being shared with those who would like to overcome the challenges of dieting and to lose the extra weight, while establishing a healthier approach to eating. All you need to do is to pick up a fork!
