The Menopause Menu Plus Other Stuff

"My purpose in life is to learn how to make my "Third Act" of life AWESOME."

"My God-given purpose is to share what I have learned with others."

I call the little system I have developed to make our "Third Acts" awesome, The HOPE Protocol. I should have called it The HOPE Rope. It has four strands. I call them strands because they need to be intertwined to make a rope that will pull us out of The Hormone Abyss. The four strands are...

  • Hormone Optimization

  • Organic Sustenance

  • Purification Protocols

  • Enlightenment Coaching

Today's Hack is from The Organics Strand and has to do with Weight Optimization.

ONE ORGANIC HACK you know by now when my wife went into menopause and she gained thirty pounds so quickly it made her head spin and had tried everything to lose her menopause weight by cutting her calories, joining a gym, going to boot camps, and even trying Keto, which she despised and nothing worked, she finally asked me for help.

At that time, I had been practicing Nutritional Medicine for twenty-five years. We had a somewhat successful weight loss program called "The Mac Diet." But most of the women and men that joined our program were pre-menopausal. That made sense because we discouraged menopausal women from enrolling by explaining to them that we failed more than we succeeded. After my wife came to me for help, I went on a mission to discover what menu would work for my wife and all menopausal women.

It didn't come to me overnight. I had to experiment with lots and I mean lots of different menus before I could figure out the one that did work. I call the Phase One Weight Loss Menu The Protable Menu and it works every time when executed correctly.


What I discovered is that once a woman stops ovulating, her ovaries stop producing progesterone and testosterone. Her ovaries also stop making estrogen but fat cells make estrogen. So, the more fat we have the more estrogen we have. And our fat cells use progesterone and testosterone to make estrogen. Fat makes estrogen which makes more fat and the fat makes more estrogen and it's using progesterone and testosterone to make the estrogen. The more fat we have the more estrogen we have and the less progesterone and testosterone we have. Progesterone and testosterone are your fat-burning hormones.


Without fat-burning hormones, you will not be able to lose fat by cutting calories or working out intensely. It just won't happen. You will bang your head against the wall over and over and the wall will not budge. All this head banging will cause you to be frustrated, angry, and depressed.

I researched, experimented, and failed until one day it all clicked. It was really by accident. You see my mother had ten siblings and my dad had nine siblings. Nearly all of them had diabetes. Nearly all of them died of complications caused by diabetes. My mother and father were and are insulin-dependent diabetics.

One day I had taken my dad and my oldest son to Lake Tahoe for a mini-vacation. My son and I attended a Jazz festival while there. My dad played poker. My dad was a professional poker player. While I was in college, I never knew when my tuition checks would arrive but they always did. Anyways, after the festival, we all met back at our suite. My dad was sitting next to me and he started sniffing me. I asked him what the heck was he doing and he said you're diabetic. He pulled out his glucometer and my blood sugar was 357. Normal is around 80.

I was so busy taking care of everyone else's nutrition needs and I ate well and felt awesome that I did not realize that my genetic predisposition was still walking down the diabetes path. I used my nutritional knowledge to manage my diabetes. I had to develop a special menu for myself. It kept me away from all medications for decades. After I tried every menu on the planet for my menopausal patients and nothing was working, I tried the menu I had used with great success to manage my diabetes on them.


I had shared my diabetic menu with hundreds of diabetic patients with success and now I have shared The Protable Menu with thousands of menopausal women and nearly every one of them transformed their bodies.

Let me explain how The Protable Menus works. Imagine that you and I just ate a big bowl of pasta. The pasta will turn into about a thousand calories of sugar. Your blood sugar will spike and the brain is alerted of the spike in our blood sugar. The brain then sends a signal to the beta cells of your pancreas to release insulin. Insulin will travel to receptor sites that float like little boats on your cells and open the entrance doors to these cells. Our blood sugar (glucose) will pass into the cell where the glucose will be converted into fat and stored in the cellular pantries.

In a nutshell...

  • Blood Sugar Spikes

  • Insulin Is Released

  • Cellular Entrance Doors Are Opened

  • Blood Sugar Flows Into The Cells

  • The Cells Convert The Glucose Into Fat

  • The Fat Is Stored In The Cells' Pantries

The second step we have our clients take is to grasp that once they are in menopause, the only menu that works for them to lose their belly fat and the excess weight that menopause gifts them is to...


When insulin is bottomed out, the brain sends a signal to the alpha cells of the pancreas to release glucagon, insulin's twin hormone. Glucagon attaches to the same receptor sites as insulin but instead of opening the entrance doors, glucagon opens the exit doors. The stored fat in the form of triglycerides will flow out of the cells, enter the bloodstream, and float to the liver. The liver will convert the triglycerides into fuel. So, if you bottom out insulin, you...


I call this the Insulin Glucagon SeeSaw.

So...Here's today's hack, which happens to be the first step in our Organics Strand. Oh, and you may be wondering why I call it The Organics Strand. You'll learn more about that in a future class. So you are not kept in the dark, here is a short explanation.

Most God-made food reduces inflammation. Most human-made food increases inflammation. The five chronic diseases, the diseases most likely to kill you and me, are caused by chronic inflammation. The primary cause of chronic inflammation is human-made food.

"I call this strand The Organic Strand because we want to put in, put on, and surround our bodies with God-made products." There are so many new chemicals introduced into our food, cosmetics, and environment that enter our bodies. These chemicals cause our immune system to react. The cleaner our food, cosmetics, and environment the less the immune system reacts. The immune system reactions cause inflammation.

MAC HACK: Bottom out insulin, top out glucagon, and you will achieve your "Happy" or "Bottom" weight because you will switch your cells from being fat-storing cells to fat-releasing cells. Click on the link below to download The Protable Menu, the menu we use to bottom out insulin and top out glucagon.

If you find that you cannot lose weight on your own, you're not alone. Research says 97% of women who go on a diet fail. The same research says that the 3% that succeed did so because they were held accountable. If you know that you are one of the 97% that needs an accountability coach to succeed...



If you eat The Protable Menu, you will bottom out insulin, and also top out glucagon, and if you are able to do that you will achieve your "happy" or "bottom" weight because you will switch your cells from being fat-storing cells to fat-releasing cells.


ONE MAC SUCCESS STORY By eating The Protable Menu, you will find your "Happy" weight like our past client Melanie did.

It's called "Total Transformation."


DOC MAC COACHING (For Those Interested In Achieving Their Ideal Body) As I have mentioned, when my wife went into menopause, she gained weight so quickly that we were in shock. Once we placed her on my diabetic menu now called The Protable Menu she lost weight nearly as quickly as she gained it.

It was all about seesawing two of her hormones insulin and glucagon. We discovered that once a woman went into menopause, her fat-burning hormones become nearly nonexistent. With her ovaries no longer producing progesterone or testosterone she developed a condition called estrogen dominance. Once we shared The Protable Menu with our clients, Wa La, they started losing weight like crazy.


Many gained the weight they had lost back once they achieved their happy weight and expanded their menu. That is when we discovered those that did gain their weight back were still estrogen dominant.

To lose the menopause weight, you will need to play the Insulin Glucagon Game. To maintain your "Happy" or "Bottom" weight, you will need to correct estrogen dominance.

In my first twenty-one years of practice, I had one clinic. After we discovered that The Protable Menu would make the extra weight melt off menopausal women and that correcting estrogen dominance would keep their weight off, our patients sent all their family and friends to us and we went from one clinic to seven satellite clinics throughout northern California. The initial consultation fee at those clinics was $297.

Today, we are offering a virtual phone consultation with me for FREE. I personally pledge to you it will be the most informative consultation about menopause, hormones, and weight loss that you will ever have. Most hormone experts charge $500 for their initial consultation and thousands of dollars to enroll in their hormone optimization programs.

Health care at Cenegenics will cost patients between $20,000 and $30,000 a year depending on the specific treatment plan and number of required lab tests throughout the year. Just the initial evaluation will cost at least $4000. ANTI-AGING WEBSITE

When my wife went into menopause, I got to see firsthand her struggle with her weight and the plethora of other symptoms that went along with her hormones becoming chaotic. I could not believe there wasn't anyone out there that had the knowledge to help menopausal women. I was disgusted with psych drugs being the go-to treatment for menopause. I have since dedicated my life to providing a solution for menopausal weight gain and the other symptoms that menopause causes. I promise you that I will use the knowledge I have gained to help you reverse the ravage menopause has caused to your body and life. I call my program HOPE for Menopause. After treating tens of thousands of patients and now thousands of clients as a coach I assure you there is HOPE.

We guarantee it! There are only a few remaining spots in our accountability program. Now is the time to look into being coached before our roster is full. If you want to see if you qualify for our current roster, we have a few openings for our Initial Free Consultation this week. “Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone” Pablo Picasso

I'm retired. I don't do this as a job. I do this because there are very few doctors out there helping menopausal women be themselves again and those doctors cost five figures to join their team. I do charge a nominal fee for my programs, and I have different programs for different budgets. I have found if you are not willing to invest in a coaching program, you will be uncoachable.

There's something about being invested that makes you be invested. Research shows that 97% of the people who try to make a transformation internally or externally fail. The 3% that succeed have accountability in the form of a coach. If you are interested in being in the 3%, schedule a FREE conversation with me.



This is a picture of Vicky and me this last week checking out the campus our youngest son, Derek, has chosen to transfer to after attending a private Christian school in Southern California. Their mascot is a wildcat. Our other four children have all graduated and are successful in their careers. he is the last, which means we are going to be empty nesters again. 🕺 🎉 👏

"If you've entered your "Third Act" of life and gained a substantial amount of weight and if you can't lose your weight no matter what you do, it's because your hormones are in chaos. I promise to teach you on how to harmonize your hormones, and then we will both sit back and watch your excess weight melt right off of your body. Transforming into the "REAL YOU" is a beautiful thing to experience."
