Dr. Richard Schulze: The Original Natural Health Revolutionary

Wisdom from one of the early pioneers of modern Natural Healing.

Trouble Losing Weight


Dear Dr. Schulze,

First of all, I would like to thank you. I suffered from severe ulcerative colitis, and traditional medicine was unable to help me. With the guidance of a natural healer, and using your herbal products, I was able to heal myself of this terrible, life-altering disease. Thanks to your products, I am not only completely healed, but I am healthier than I was even before the onset of the debilitating sickness. Thank you!

My very good friend is having terrible difficulty losing weight. She exercises five days a week and has been on a very good, sensible diet for weight loss for over a year. Yet, no matter what she does, the weight just will not come off. She has been to doctors about this, seen trainers, tried all manner of diets, to no avail. Do you have any products, plans, and suggestions, for how to help her lose weight? After my experience with your site, I have confidence in your ability to help.

Dear Megan,

Great Job in healing yourself of Ulcerative Colitis, GREAT JOB!

Regarding your friend, a little tough love is necessary. There are NO magic bullets when it comes to losing weight, and no mystery, and NO EXCEPTIONS TO THIS RULE. It is a very simple and very scientific law of Newtonian Physics. Calories IN versus calories OUT (or burnt). That’s it. PERIOD. THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS. But there are many excuses.

Now sure, some people find it a little harder or easier to lose weight, depending on their metabolism, age, gender or whatever. And most people do find it difficult to lose weight, and for a few, like your friend, it may almost seem impossible, BUT IT ISN’T, they are NOT an exception to the rule.

If you burn more calories with exercise than you take in with your food program, YOU WILL LOSE WEIGHT, it is scientifically impossible not to.

It is just that most people have no real idea how many calories are in the food they are eating, or the liquids they are drinking, or are unconscious of some foods that they are consuming, and at the same time do not exercise correctly, or long enough.

In my now 40 years of practice, I have never seen an exception to this rule. If anyone eats only 1,000 to 1,200 calories a day, and measures and weighs EVERYTHING they eat (and I mean EVERYTHING) and also exercises until they are out of breath and sweating profusely, and then continues to exercise this way steadily for one whole hour, and does all of this EVERY DAY, seven days a week, they will lose about 1 to 3 pounds a week on average, and more if they are 20 pounds or more overweight.


In my clinic, I found that many people, like your friend, fell into one of two categories. They were not totally conscious of what they were eating or the amounts they were eating or the fat and calories in what they were eating (or), they were not exercising steadily enough, long enough or intensely enough, OR BOTH OF THESE.

On my birthday this year, April 15th, I decided that I was done with being chunky and carrying around excess weight. So I started paying attention to EVERTHING that went into my mouth—food, liquid—EVERYTHING. I reduced my intake to about 1,000 calories. I replaced meals with a SuperFood Plus drink, (which is extremely high in nutrition, but very low calorie and very low fat) mostly in water. At the same time I started fast walking and eventually running seven days a week, for one full hour, sometimes twice a day, or two hours a day.

At the end of three months, I went from 225 pounds to 185 pounds. I DROPPED 40 POUNDS! I haven’t been this weight since I was in my twenties. I got rid of 40 pounds of fat, and I feel great. And, I have maintained this weight until today, by eating smart and moving my butt every day.

There is no magic or mystery to getting rid of fat and losing weight, and no one who isn’t able to do this, or is “big-boned” or has a “glandular problem” or a “different metabolism”. EVERYONE CAN DO IT!

I didn’t say it was easy. It takes a lot of focus, determination, desire and more focus. It is just a matter of wanting it enough.

If your friend says she has done exactly this, and it didn’t work, she is not only fat, she is unconscious and a liar.

You might just want to send her my reply in an anonymous e-mail. Why lose a friendship over fat.
