Durk Pearson & Sandy Shaw’s
21st CENTURY HEALTHY WEIGHT PROGRAM
Resist Not the Pleasure of Food
With the arrival of Durk Pearson & Sandy Shaw’s Glycemic Control Erythritol, Strategy #1 of Durk & Sandy’s 21st century healthy weight program has now grown. Thus it’s now even easier (and tastier) to promote healthy weight loss by . . .
- Lowering the glycemic index of many foods
- Turning what you eat into time released-food
- Avoiding the negative consequences of sugar
Erythritol is a natural sugar alcohol sweetener, with 1/10 the calories of sugar, and much lower risk of GI irritation and laxative effects that other sugar alcohols can cause. It even offers other health benefits.
Research has shown that substituting erythritol for regular sugars may decrease peak glucose and insulin concentrations as well as the total amount of glucose absorbed and insulin released. When combined in prepared foods to which you would normally add sugar along with a naturally beta-glucan-rich fiber such as Glycemic Control Barley Flour, Quick Flakes, or Glycemic Control Resistant Starch, the results can be even more dramatic.
As Durk and Sandy say, “You don’t have to give up a sweet tooth!”
Durk Pearson & Sandy Shaw’s Glycemic Control is designed to revolutionize the way that you eat, to promote healthy weight, and to improve your health, without the need for hunger—and without giving up the pleasures of eating!
Pleasure without pain … now who could ask for more than that?
Suggested Use: Use as a substitute for sugar or other sweeteners. Erythritol is easily incorporated into a wide variety of foods calling for sugar without compromising taste, texture or appearance compared to other sweeteners.

I drink lots of coffee, and I don’t use sugar anymore! I just use this erythritol - 1 teaspoon of it plus 1 teaspoon of local honey that helps with my allergies. I also use the erythritol in anything hot like green tea. I like it because it reduces my calorie intake; I think it’s brilliant!

The other day, I popped a button on a shirt. It was a smaller size shirt than I typically wear (XL vs. XXL), but I can’t recall popping a button on a shirt before. So, on a hunch, I measured my chest. It proved to be nearly 2 inches larger then when I last measured it.
This perplexed me at first, because my weight has remained stable for about 8 months, following my adoption of Durk & Sandy’s 21st Century Weight Control Program back in November of 2006. Then I was 25 pounds heavier. Now when I look at myself in the mirror, I’ve definitely developed a T-frame, something I never had before. But it hadn’t occurred to me fully what was happening. So I stepped on a scale I acquired that measures body fat electrostatically: 14.5%! That’s great, and about the midpoint of the healthy range for someone between the ages of 18 and 39—and I’m nearly 64.
What is going on? I had read the studies about mitochondrial biogenesis from resveratrol, in which mice had developed defined muscles by taking large amounts of resveratrol, but that was for human-equivalent amounts of about 3.6 g/day, and I have been taking only about 200 mg/day. But I am also taking other PGC-1alpha inducers, within the context of the Program.
What I do know is that I’m maintaining my weight. But there’s more: I seem to be shifting more toward lean body mass. Have I increased my exercise regimen? No—I’ve actually decreased the amount of time I spend in the gym. So the only thing I can attribute my success to is Durk & Sandy’s 21st Century Weight Control Program, to which I’ve been faithful now for 18 months. [See letters published in Life Enhancement in January 2007, May 2007, and March 2008. – Ed.] I’m thrilled with the results!

I began Durk & Sandy’s 21st Century Healthy Weight Program back in November 2006, when I was privileged to have early access to all components of the program: the Glycemic Control products, the ShapeShifter Teas, and the MealMate supplement. [Regarding MealMate,
article. –Ed.] Although I exercise 4–5 days/week and have done so regularly for nearly 13 years, even a carefully controlled diet had not helped maintain my weight. The awful truth is that each of those 13 years added about 2 lbs of weight (mostly fat). Sadly, I had reconciled myself to accepting weight gain as an inevitable part of the aging process.
But then I began Durk & Sandy’s program. I can now report that, after 20 weeks, without any hunger, I’ve lost 19 lbs (all fat), and I cannot remember feeling better. I follow a low-glycemic diet for the most part, and I use the Glycemic Control products without fail at 3 servings/day.
Now, at the start of my day, I typically prepare a small bowl of Durk & Sandy’s Glycemic Control Quick Flakes, microwaved with some milk for 2 minutes and topped with Functional Gourmet MCT Oil, Butter Buds®, and berries. As I drive to work, I sip a cup of ShapeShifter Teas brewed in a French press earlier that morning. Then with my lunch, I drink a cup of a low-glycemic juice into which I’ve stirred 2 tablespoons of Glycemic Control Flour. Later, in midafternoon, I drink another cup of ShapeShifter Teas.
With my dinner, I typically have Glycemic Control Nuggets, prepared much like hearty rice (e.g., microwaved for about 8 minutes in a vegetable broth). With each meal, I also take 2 capsules of the MealMate formulation, as well as 2 more at bedtime. Although the number of recommended servings of ShapeShifter Teas is 3 cups/day, I have rarely consumed more than 2/day. How much more progress I might make with a 3rd cup is something to contemplate. For a snack, I eat a small dish of Glycemic Control LifeByChocolate. Yummy! One thing more: my workouts have been a lot easier, and I actually look forward to exercising. Amazing!

Since I began to use Durk & Sandy’s Glycemic Control products, I have experienced some weight loss—about 5 pounds so far—along with significant alleviation of what has been a constant problem over the years: periodic bloating. It’s not just the weight loss that has brought relief, because I’ve lost weight before and still had to deal with the discomfort of too much puffiness, especially around my waist. So I’m quite happy so far, except for some flatulence, presumably due to the undigested carbohydrates. If the rest of the program works as well, sign me up. I’m stoked on the ideas underlying these products.
