I normally don’t like to repost letters I receive from those that like my videos. Not because I don’t think there success story is not worth being published, but I really hate to self-promote myself. It doesn’t feel right to me, but occasionally I’ll get a letter so good that I feel I have to. My role in this person’s success was minimal, and they deserve a ton of praise for bringing their life around. I also wanted to post this letter because I think it gives a unique perspective to what Jackie Eberstein talked about on the cruise, sugar addiction. This particular person had two addictions — meth and an addiction to sugar. You might be surprised to find out which one he thought was worse to kick.
You will be one of the greatest people in my life that have inspired me to change. My testimony in short:
On Jan 2, 2011 I decided to start the Atkins diet again after I had failed 5 years prior. I weighed 295 pounds and was depressed and broken and addicted to drugs.(relapse) It was through Gods Power and Your videos that kept me fighting and believing. Getting off meth was hard but not that bad, The sugar on the other hand was indescribably horrible. The first month I cried at night and prayed in agony. SO MANY Emotions raced thru my mind but I kept believing and counting carbs going to church and watching your videos over and over and over.
Kent today I weigh 120 pounds. What I lost is all FAT no muscle! I gained muscle. Today I’m drug free, Sugar (man made) free and starting up my business in real estate again. I’m a miracle and God used you to help me. Thank You from the bottom of my heart!

BTW: I learned for me that my Drug addiction cravings are gone, Its because I have my sugar addiction in check. I believe that x drug addicts would benefit from kicking sugar also because there chances of relapse would be SO LOW. Its sad to know that the way I ate lead me to relapse. I believe that.
You don’t know how happy I am to get a letter like this. I don’t often wear my Christianity on my sleeve, but to be a vehicle of God’s mercy is a pretty awesome experience. I am honored to have been able to help this person unknowingly for the last few years and enable him to get his life back. I think his message about addiction rings true, and it was reported on the cruise how many addicts change one addictions for another in treatment as they seek out sugary treats to replace the high they used to achieve chemically.
Great job, Harvey!
