Frequently asked questions

What is the GCoop Energy Diet?

GCoop Energy Diet is a diet based on the latest scientific reserach created in South Korea by Dr. Ryu and Dr. Jung. There are six fundamentals for the diet:

  1. Ketogenesis
  2. Autophagy
  3. Intermittant fasting
  4. Cycling intake
  5. Heavy metal detoxification
  6. Lifestyle modification through proper sleep, exercise and nutrition
Since this is a month long worldwide program, participants are grouped according to the region they reside. The staff of the GCoop Energy Diet program (aka. "coaches") lead the group through the diet and address any questions or problems which can arise due to a wide variation of body types and needs. There are 5 weekly educational seminars held live in South Korea by Dr. Ryu and Dr. Jung. Participants in the U.S. are also able to access the recorded live seminar during a limited time window due to time differences worldwide. The diet is supported with micronutrients and herbal supplements:
  1. To allow the body fight through side effects which will occur through detoxification
  2. Transition from a carbohydrate-rich lifestyle to a more balanced diet promoting fat burning and metabolic flexibility.
The Cycling Technique aka. time restricted feeding is incorporated to help cycle the body into metabolic flexibility for feeding and non feeding phases. Every year the GCoop Energy Diet is upgraded to include the latest advances in dietary medicine.

Are there several GCoop Energy Diet Programs?

The GCoop Energy Diet is officially held worldwide 5~6 times a year. No other groups are authorized to use the educational materials and video from the diet program. It is illegal to use the GED materials for their use in sponsoring their own diet program. In 2020, the remaining sessions of GCoop Energy Diet are as follows:

  • Season 3-5: July 16th
  • Season 3-6: August 27th
  • Season 3-7: October 15th
  • Season 3-8: December 3rd
Unfortunately there are groups who start a diet program using our program but they are not authorized to use our name. Most of those diet programs are held by GCoopers who have experienced the GCoop Energy Diet Program but have not gone through the required training to become an official GED coach. GED coaches are trained to respond to individuals and outliers who react differently to the general diet. There is a systematic approach to the GED program and measures are created to help protect the individual from harm. Coaches are also there to explain the common symptoms which arise through decreased consumption of carbohydrates along with transient detoxification syndrome which occurs when the toxins are released from the burned fat. It is highly urged for people who are starting the diet for the first time to join the "official" Energy Diet Program. The registration fee of $60 does not compare to a lifetime of change. The Energy Diet Program is held frequent enough so it is prudent to wait. GED will not held responsible nor obligated to help those who have tried to go through the program privately. Those groups do not have the necessary medical nor dietary training to help individuals who react differently to the program.

Is the GCoop Energy Diet different every Season?

Every year, the GCoop Energy Diet is upgraded with the latest scientific research in dietary medicine. Also with incrasing participants from around the world, the ability to understand dieting betwen different races are also taken into consideration.
