I have the sample book.  I'm not sure if I would like it.  I have a meal plan called the diabetic glycemic menu. It's really the healthiest way to eat. I started at 282 lbs in 2006. Lost 140 pounds.  In one year.  

I only ate 375 carbs a day.  The diabetic Association will send you a free book on the glycemic meal plan.  It tells you the good carbs and the bad carbs. The good fats vs bad fats (saturated) Starchy veggies and non starchy veggies.  Good luck with your diet.  God Bless you.  I'm very proud of you for trying to become physically fit. 

Sincerely Joan White

I just watched your show on what teens are doing in regards to oral sex. And as with many of your shows it hit home. I was 13 when i lost my virginity to an eighteen year old and i did it only to get it over with. My father had never been apart of my life and i was looking for love in all the wrong places. This was only the first of a number of bad choices I would make over the next several years that led to me marring an abusive controlling man who ended up shooting me three times and then killing himself when i tried to leave him. I have now spent the last twenty years in a wheelchair. I see all these shows where girls always say that when asked why they stay with an abuser and the answer is always the same "I love him." and every time I hear it I want to puck in my mouth. I to once thought if I only love him enough it will get better and it never did and never would have. So many girls and women today really have no idea what love is, it is heart breaking. I really wish i could tell them all exactly what they are in for if they don't pull their heads out of the sand. Keep up the good work I wish i had grown up with a father like you.

I would love to see an episode and hear Dr Phil address students' lack of respect of teachers and school rules in general. I have seen two videos this week of teachers getting knocked down by large big high school students over a cell phone. And just as disturbing is the rest of the class videoing it and/or not stepping in to help! Teachers' hands are so tied that they have nothing they can do but take this abuse for fear of losing their job. They certainly cannot lay theitr hands on a student anymore. Where is the respect? How can we expect to get people willing to teach in these environments?? Feels like a slippery slope...

This could be a followup or extention to the several shows that have aired lately on bullying and viral videos. Help Dr. Phil! America's teachers and educators need your neatly laid out plan for the next generation. Yes, the parents need it too!! Way too much coddling going on! OK, maybe thats another show...

Dr. Phil, I have one question for you, what were you thinking when you wrote this book.  Ha Ha  I think you need to rename Phase 1 to  the Torture phase.  OMG  I am really hungry, I have had a headache since it started.  This is the first time my dogs have not begged for food when I am eating.  Ha Ha  I am on Day 4 and I have lost 6.5 lbs.  Ok thats great but gosh this is really hard.  I hope I don't have to rename Phase 2.  Hungry in Florida

Lords Hill "A Place Only God Could save Me From" is based on a true story that took place in a small New England town. This is Maggie the spring after her mother was in a fatal car accident. This story covers abuse, addiction, alcoholism, sexual depravity, untreated mental illness & trauma. It also gives hope, healing and redemption and the undying search for a relationship with God.

I don't feel high but had a hyper perseonality.  I know what you mean.  I got the movie theater security to escort me back to the theater when I complained about that happening in the theater.  Some girls were giggling, which gave across a certain message.  My dad coughed, sitting somewhere else from me, and that gave another.  Somehow they knew it was me with that dad.  The adults were making annoying noises at me.  I just felt it.  I was in the front.  They thought my dad was making the girls feel high acting like I couldn't think what they did, like they weren't worth it or something.

I was told to like fax money as a fraud that could somehow land me in jail, trying to be an actress/model.  My mom recognized it and took me to the bank.

I'd like to think I have a pretty good moral compass and my intentions are always good though my actions seem to be very harmful to myself lately. I admit I have struggled with self worth/esteem since as long as I can remember. And knowing how horribly crushing it can be to feel as if you are never good enough, I have spent my life trying to be there for and understand others who most would walk away from. As much as I have tried to help others see their worth and be the best they can be I found I am inhibiting myself. I've been put in very crappy situations and have managed to cut off quite a few toxic friendships. I am in fear though that I will only continue to meet and fall under the manipulation of others. I'm hoping to find guidance as to hoe I can break this cycle. I find myself sacrificing my self worth so often and of course I end up shattered but I feel I am addicted to helping others, addicted to men who are emotionally abusive and manipulative. I find myself trying to understand why they do the things they do and beg them to get help. I've heard that you cannot change anyone they can only make that change. I just hate watching anyone suffer. I get almost a high feeling when I can help someone but that is usually followed by a low feeling when they do not respect me or appreciate me. I'm left feeling used. Why if I know these things am I unable to overcome them? Has anyone else had these issues? Have you been able to overcome them? I want to live as the best version of myself but I keep getting in my own way. I feel I'm missing the tools to pick myself and move forward.

Dr. Phil

I met a man on facebook he wanted to be my facebook friend. Well I decided to let him do that. We started talking everyday on messenger. Well after awhile I fell in love with him. He was calling me every romantic word that is in the book. Well it come up we was talking seriously about our life together and then he told me he had a contract he had to win. He wanted me to pray that he would win it. So I did and he came back the next day and told me he won the contracxt and he would be basing his goods out of my hometown just like we was going to get married and live in my hometown. Well the next he was talking to me and we was discussing it and then it was that he asked me to get him $5200.00 and I knew then that this would not be the last payment. So I told him that I did not work and did not get much money a month. Of course he wanted me to try to borrow it. But I told him I could not borrow it I had already tried to borrow money and got denied. Of course he kept on trying to get me to get the money. Dr. Phil will you please help me find out who is behind this. Because I believe they are using some man identity to do this. The name they were using was Cyril Petereson. I am trying to get over my feelings for him. Will you please help me find out about this situation so I can have closure.
