Natural Weight Loss And Weddings

When you are planning for your wedding, it seems like your whole life moves very fast at times, and extreme slow at other times. The same holds true for when someone tries to lose weight for their wedding day. While wedding day weight loss is a common thing, as most people want to look as fabulous as possible on their special day, it should be done in a very natural way. Many weddings are marked by the wedding party trying to squeeze into small dresses to look as \”good\” as they think they can look. But, ofttimes, this is done at an expense to their bodies and overall well-being. Weight loss should never be a rush-rush thing. It should happen as naturally as possible.

Natural weight loss is a much safer and healthier way to lose weight for your wedding day, or any day. Losing weight does not take all types of new drugs or expensive equipment. In fact, being dependent on such things can actually be a hindrance for long-term weight loss success.

Here are a few ways to make your wedding day weight loss goals happen naturally:

1. Don\’t use drugs to lose weight. Instead of harmful drugs, try to start with a natural body cleanse, which you can do by drinking more water and/or herbal teas. Tea can work as a diuretic and antioxidant, which promotes frequent urination which can help to rid your body of certain unwanted free radicals. Eating more roughage such as dark green vegetables and fiber can help you to eliminate more waste from your body, allowing the body to cleanse itself naturally. With a fairly clean inside, you will lose some weight and your body will be prepped for a more healthier regimen.

2. Be honest about your goal. Don\’t make yourself think that you have to lose enough weight to be the skinniest person at the wedding. Consider the ultimate purpose and goal of your weight loss, your body type, and the rewards of a real plan to lose weight for the long haul. Doing it too fast can definitely cause much more harm than good. The faster you lose it, the faster you may gain it back. Utilize a plan that works consistently over a specified period of time.

3. Find support. Whether it is for motivation for with sticking to an exercise program or for encouragement to eat better, if you feel that you cannot go it alone, get help. There are many organizations that foster positive, natural weight loss ideals that you can live by. These groups will give be there for you emotionally during this time as you make a personal commitment to lose the weight. If you need more assistance with developing or incorporating an effective exercise plan into your life, then you should seek out a personal trainer. Some gyms offer them free of charge, while others charge an hourly fee. Don\’t let the cost scare you away from utilizing a personal trainer. The results of that added support will be priceless.

Whenever we prepare for life changes, we sometimes want a quick fix to make the transition go smoother. The same holds true with wedding day weight loss. However, a quick fix is not always the best solution. So, as you prepare for an awesome wedding day, and hopefully, and even more fantastic wedding night, take the same care and planning for your weight loss. Looking good can be a natural thing.

Hidden Sodium in your Everyday Foods is a True Health Hazard!

September 28th, 2010 No comments

Sodium is a silent Killer. Especially to those with Hypertension, Heart Disease, and other Health Issues. Do they print this on the Label? Of course not, they figure what you do not know will not hurt you. But that is completely false.

Over 2.5 years ago I was forced to go on a Sodium Restricted Diet for Health reasons. I have lost over 50 pounds in those 2.5 years without even trying, just changing the way I ate.

So many people are into Carb Counting, Fat Gram Counting and Calorie Counting.

What if I told you a Friend and I had compiled a list of Recipes that included NO Sodium in the food preparation and the food tasted just as good as if it had all the bad ingredients in it? Well we have, and we are going to be releasing this book soon. What does this book do for you?

• Improves Your Overall Health (MY Cholesterol was at the Normal levels and prior they were at dangerously high levels)

• Healthy Weight Loss (50 Pounds in 2.5 years)

• NO Need for a High Blood Pressure Pill anymore ( I will talk more about that)

• Healthier Eating Habits

• Recipes your whole Family will love and never guess they are missing Salt!

• And many more Benefits that the Book will Cover

It is a Little more Costly to eat this way, but I bet it is cheaper than Jenny or other Diet Plans.

You will need Fresh Veggies, Can ones contain a lot of Sodium. The next time you are in the Grocery Store look at the Labels for Sodium Grams. The Object is to keep it at 600 MG per meal. 1800 MG a Day. It really works. If you follow the instructions in the book and what I am claiming does NOT happen (BUT YOU MUST FOLLOW THIS 100%) I will Gladly Replace your $29.97 for the book.

Why spend all that money on Guru Diets when a Simple Low Sodium Diet will do the exact same thing plus improve your overall Health? Now back to my getting on the Sodium Restricted Diet, ( Low Sodium Free) I did have High Blood Pressure, But not one single Doctor said reduce your Sodium intake. Honestly even if they had of I would not have done it. Sodium had to cause me agony before I tried it, it is like the fear of the Dentist. When it hurts bad enough you really will go. I was in bad shape due to an inner ear condition and Sodium had become a Poison to me.

In the past 2 years we have created recipes like:

• Fried Chicken and Wings

• Hamburgers With All The Trimmings

• Soups, 100% FRESH!

• Chinese Dishes

• Spaghetti

• Hot Dogs even with Chili

• French Fries

• Veggies (Must be Fresh or Frozen)

• Meat Loaf

• Stuffed Peppers

• Basically any food that you could eat before has been duplicated and when the book comes out try it on your family, The odds are they will never know and you will be doing everyone a favor but eating a Healthier Way

• A Salt-a- holic may know as they consume so much salt I am surprised they have not dried up.

I plan to have the book ready by New Years, it will be $29.97 and that is a small price to pay for a Healthier Lifestyle and lose weight without the high prices of these High Priced Diet Plans, that in my opinion only work temporary. This is easy as the food taste no different. You can improve your Health, lose weight and actually keep it off, I have for over 2 years now.

Thank you for reading my Special Report, if you would like copies please email me at and I will gladly send a FREE Copy of this Report!

Yours truly,

Are You Eating The Right Carbohydrates?

September 28th, 2010 2 comments

This is the technical meaning of “healthy fat.” Your body needs these fats to function properly, yet it doesn’t produce it on it’s own. Flax seed oils is the form in which the oil was extracted from the seed. Omega-3 fatty acids which contain the majority of flax seed health benefits are very susceptible to heat.

Flax seeds may come in different colors, but the colors don’t anything to do with the value of their nutrition. They are all equally beneficial to you.

One way to influence brain health through diet is to consume the right fats and oils.

Lignans and other flax seed components may also have antioxidant properties, which means they may reduce the activity of cell-damaging free radicals.

Are You Eating the Right Carbohydrates?

Whether you’re trying to lose weight or just want to eat healthier, you may be confused by the news you’re hearing about carbohydrates. With so much attention focused on protein diets, there’s been a consumer backlash against carbohydrates. As a result, many people misunderstand the role that carbohydrates play in a healthy diet.

Carbohydrates aren’t all good or all bad. Some kinds promote health while others, when eaten often and in large quantities, may increase the risk for diabetes and coronary heart disease.

What are carbohydrates?

Carbohydrates come from a wide array of foods – bread, fruit, vegetables, rice, beans, milk, popcorn, potatoes, cookies, spaghetti, corn, and cherry pie. They also come in a variety of forms. The most common and abundant ones are sugars, fibers, and starches. The basic building blocks of all carbohydrates are sugar molecules. The digestive system handles all carbohydrates in much the same way – it breaks them down (or tries to break them down) into single sugar molecules, since only these are small enough to absorb into the bloodstream. It also converts most digestible carbohydrates into glucose (also known as blood sugar), because cells are designed to use this as a universal energy source. This is why carbohydrates can make us feel energetic. Carbohydrates fuel our body. Your body stores glucose reserves in the muscles in the form of glycogen ready to be used when we exert ourselves.

Carbohydrates are the highest octane – the most desirable fuel source for your body’s energy requirements. If you don’t have an adequate source of carbohydrate your body may scavenge from dietary protein and fat to supply glucose. The problem is when you’ve depleted your stores of glycogen (stored glucose in muscle and lean tissue) your body turns to burning muscles or organs (lean muscle tissue) and dietary protein or fat to provide blood glucose to supply energy needs. When this happens, your basal metabolic rate drops because you have less lean muscle tissue burning calories and your body thinks its starving and cuts back on energy requirements.

So you should continue to eat carbohydrates discriminately selecting those which have the greatest health benefits.

Flaxseeds and their oil may also lower total blood cholesterol, as well as LDL (“bad”) cholesterol Human studies have shown that flaxseed can modestly reduce serum total and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol concentrations, reduce postprandial glucose absorption, decrease some markers of inflammation, and raise serum levels of the omega-3 fatty acids, ALA and eicosapentaenoic acid.

Omega-3 fatty acids are long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (18-22 carbon atoms in chain length) with the first of many double bonds beginning with the third carbon atom (when counting from the methyl end of the fatty acid molecule). Read on for more details on flax seed benefits. Like most vegetable oils, flaxseed oil contains linoleic acid, an essential fatty acid needed for survival. But unlike most oils, it also contains significant amounts of another essential fatty acid, alpha linolenic acid (ALA). There are many benefits to adding flax seeds to your diet. Well for instance they can get rid of your constipation problem.

The carbohydrates you consume should come from carbohydrate-rich foods that are close to the form that occurs in nature. The closer the carbohydrate food is as Mother Nature intended, the greater the density of other vital nutrients. If you are looking for health-enhancing sources of carbohydrates you should choose from: Fruit: rich in fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C, folate, potassium and often vitamin E.

Vegetables: fiber, protein, vitamin A, vitamin C, often vitamin E, potassium and a wider variety of minerals than fruit. Whole grains and grain foods: rich in fiber, protein, and some B vitamins and are very rich in minerals.

Legumes: an excellent source of protein, fiber folate, potassium, iron and several minerals.

Dairy foods: protein, vitamin D, calcium, phosphorus, potassium, riboflavin, and vitamin B12. You can also source carbohydrates from processed foods such as soda pop or soft drinks, snacks such as cookies and chips, and alcohol. These generally are considered to be a poor food choice and should be consumed rarely. The carbohydrate source (sugar and flour) in these food choices has been highly refined processed. A diet rich in refined carbohydrates and processed foods has been associated with heart disease and onset of type 2 diabetes.

Why are these sources of carbohydrates to be avoided?

1. They are calorie dense and contribute a large number of calories in a small amount of food. For example a 7oz bag of potato chips or corn chips have approximately 1000 calories. Most women on a weight management program will be aiming for 1200 daily calorific intake. So, this is what we mean by calorie dense and nutritionally scarce.

2. They offer little appetite-holding power because they have no fiber or protein. As a result you end up searching for food again soon after your first serve.

3. They contribute nothing to your nutritional profile except calories. This means you have fewer calories left for foods that your body requires for good health.

Whenever possible, replace highly processed grains, cereals, and sugars with minimally processed whole-grain products and ensure you have at least five serves of fruit and vegetables daily.

Rather than cut out carbs completely for a very short-term gain (usually weight loss), there are greater long-term health benefits in learning how to distinguish good carbs over bad carbs and incorporating healthy carbohydrates into your weight loss program. Heart disease is by far the #1 killer in the U. S., although 1/3 of those deaths could be prevented if people exercised more and followed better diets, the American Heart Association said in an annual report.

Also discussed will be the affects of our western diet on omega-3 levels and the latest research on the cardiovascular, heart, and the other health benefits of omega-3 compounds. Flax seed oil is extracted from the seeds of the flax plant. Flax seed oil and flax seed contain substances that promote good health.

Randomized clinical trials have shown that omega-3 fatty acid supplements can reduce cardiovascular events (death, non-fatal heart attacks, non-fatal strokes). They can also slow the progression of atherosclerosis in coronary patients. You can eat whole flax seeds but you need to chew them good to break them up. Your stomach will not dissolve whole flax seeds and many of them will come out in your stools.

Eating Your Way to a Healthy Heart

September 28th, 2010 4 comments

Heart disease is number one killer among both men and women in the United States. And though we all realize that eating nutrient-dense healthy foods help reduce the risk, we may not know which foods are the best choices to battle this deadly disease head on. The key is stepping up fiber and choosing unsaturated fats. Eating unsaturated fats, like omega-3 fatty acids and olive oil, can help to reduce triglycerides. And a diet rich in soluble fiber, which is often found in legumes and some fruits and vegetables, helps to decrease LDL cholesterol levels.

Sardines are an awesome source of omega-3 fatty acids, along with calcium and niacin. You can prepare fresh ones on the grill, or canned sardines work great in salads or sandwiches. Mackerel is another excellent source of omega-3s, and is full of selenium, which is an antioxidant mineral which may help protect the body from heart disease and cancer. A great way to get omega-3s on the go is by grabbing a handful of walnuts for an afternoon snack. Add some to your green salad, or give chicken salad a nutrition boost by adding ground walnuts.

Kidney beans are an affordable source of high fiber, are low fat, and have no cholesterol. Add them to salads and chili, as they truly are almost a perfect health food. Since canned varieties tend to be higher in sodium, try to use the dried varieties whenever possible.

Whole-grain barley is rich in soluble fiber and insoluble fiber, which is good for combating constipation. It’s also a good protein source and has a good supply of iron and minerals. Choose whole-grain barley cereals, or substitute whole-grain barley for rice and pasta side dishes once a week.

Oatmeal is a great way to boost your fiber content early in the morning, and it also has a low glycemic index, which helps to provide lasting energy stave off hunger. Choose rolled oats, and add some raisins, apples, and honey for flavor. Instant oatmeal isn’t a healthy option as it’s usually loaded with sugar.

Fat Burning Foods That Burn Fat Fast

September 28th, 2010 6 comments

Victoria, I am so confused… I have no idea what to eat any more. With all the diet information out there right now, I don’t know what to do. I just want to know what to eat to burn fat fast?
– Caroline R.

Caroline, I am so excited about your question. If you have ever struggled with dimply junk on the back of your legs and butt, then just take your time and soak up every word in this article. There are many gems that you can take away and begin today to start smoothing out that rocky road.

Your question reminded me of the time when I was getting ready for a fitness championship and I had a total melt down. I was looking good, so I thought. I was so excited because I had been posing at home in my bathroom mirror and I just could not wait to see how my much better the definition in my muscles would be under “posing lights” at the gym. Posing lights are special lights that are designed to make your muscles look more cut, defined and striated. Those are bodybuilding terms for looking “HOT and BUFF”!

I gathered up my swimsuit, posing oil and a scrunchie to pull back my hair so that it would not cover up one beautiful striation of hard earned muscle.

I went to the gym I was training at that had a perfect set of posing lights installed by the head trainer, a NPC Body Building champion.

Ok, I get to the gym, run in the women’s locker room, put on my skimpy competition posing suit and oiled myself up. I slipped into a comfy robe to cover myself as I walked across the gym to the room we used for posing. I confidently took off my robe and gracefully walked across the room as if I was walking on stage. I believe that we should always be “on” and rehearsing in our mind and with our body what we want to be.

I walked to center stage, did a customary quarter turn to face the mirror, which was my private audience, and stood in prejudging form. My first reaction was, “sweet, I look awesome”. I hit some poses and did a few dance moves to try out my suit. Then I did my rear lat spread facing the back of the room. In this room you could see yourself from every angle because it had a three way mirror effect and that’s when the horror hit me.

AAAAHHHHH! I was so lean, so cut and so perfectly symmetrical in every direction and at every angle except when I turned around there were these horrific little dimply dents, cellulite, as we women have come to refer to it, on MY PERFECT BODY!

I was so upset, I broke out into tears, grabbed my robe, ran back into the locker room and threw on my sweats I wore on the way over to the gym. I did not even bother to take off all the oil I had on and my sweats became an oily mess which then made my car seats a spotted mess. I did not care one bit about my clothes or my car. I could buy some more sweats and I could buy a new car if I wanted to, but I had to do something fast to get those dimples off the back of my thighs and butt. I only had two weeks to get contest ready.

I called an associate I knew and asked her for help. She gave me a referral to a nutrition scientist in Arizona. I made a distress call immediately and he promptly began to tell me about certain foods that help your body go into a positive fat burning state and he also told me how some of the foods would act as a diuretic and help me lose trapped body water under my skin to make my body appear more lean and less dimply.

YES, there is a God in Heaven and He answers prayers I thought. I took copious notes and then… do you know that he actually sent me a mini diet plan written on a piece of notebook paper. Not a science manual, not a registered FDA document, or a two hundred page book like most people sell today. It was almost illegible because like many scientists and health professionals they scribble when they write.

Well the plan not only worked, it was amazing how fast my body responded to the foods I began eating and I ended up winning my competition!

So… that plan that I received years ago, that worked wonders for me, is what I am going to share with you today.

Now keep in mind, I am not a scientist. I am a published author, professional trainer of certification programs for fitness trainers and a top selling DVD Celebrity Fitness Personality. I am all of the above but the most important attribute I am teaching you with today is, I am an ex-fat person who was over sixty pounds heavier who had cottage cheese thighs and dimply butt… and now it’s gone! I bring you today my personal experience as I share with you what I have found.


Thermic Effect Principle

Foods have a thermic effect. The term “thermic effect of food” is used to describe the energy expended by our bodies in order to eat and process (digest, transport, metabolize and store) food. We expend energy by living which is metabolic functioning, breathing, working, exercising and anything else that uses muscular contractions. This is what causes your body to burn calories. Excess fat in your body is actually stored energy, whether it is on your belly or on your legs and butt. It’s fat, energy, and it has to be burned and removed in order to remove those dimples. So remember, your not fat, you just have a lot of extra energy!

This is so amazing! Processing protein requires the greatest amount of energy. Estimates range as high as 30% above your resting metabolic rate. Dietary fat, on the other hand, is so easily processed and turned into body fat that there is little thermic effect, perhaps only 2 or 3% above your resting metabolic rate. The amount of energy required to process carbohydrates falls between that of protein and fat. A range of around 10% is usually used to account for the thermic effect of food you eat.

Most of us have never heard about thermic effect of food so we just grab whatever is convenient when we are hungry

Protein causes your body to burn hotter which helps you burn more calories. So now that we know that, we have to choose the best protein sources to keep our furnace burning hot and strong all day long.

Choose low-fat protein sources

Meat, poultry and fish along with egg whites and egg substitutes are some of your best sources of protein. But be careful to choose lower fat options, such as grilled or baked, not fried or breaded. Choose milk such as skim milk rather than whole milk and always select skinless chicken breasts rather than fried chicken patties.

Fish is another good alternative to high-fat meats. Some types of fish – such as cod, tuna and halibut – have less total fat, saturated fat and cholesterol than do meat and poultry. And certain types of fish are heart healthy because they’re rich in omega-3 fatty acids. These fats may help lower blood fats called triglycerides and may reduce your risk of sudden cardiac death. Omega-3 fats are most abundant in fatty, cold-water fish, such as salmon, mackerel and herring.

Catabolic Foods

Catabolic foods burn up more calories than they supply. Catabolic foods are the opposite of Anabolic foods. For example a medium sized apple (which is catabolic), would provide an average of 85 calories, however your metabolism would require an additional 99 more calories to metabolize it. As a result, you burn more calories than you are ingesting for a overall net loss.

To help maintain your weight it is helpful to eat a minimum of ten servings of catabolic foods each day. In addition to catabolic foods you can eat proteins and other carbohydrates in moderation without gaining weight.

High grade catabolic foods are more effective than others. It is best to spread the consumption of your catabolic foods over the course of the whole day. You can eat these items to your heart’s delight. You don’t have to go around counting calories or skimping on volume and quantity with theses catabolic foods. I like to combine my proteins from my list above with the vegetables listed below for my meals and then for my snacks I go to town on the fruits and vegetables listed below. I also drink two to three quarts of water per day to keep flushing my system.



Parsley leaves
Sweet Potato
Brussels Sprouts
Leeks – cooked

There you go, this is the beginning of the entire process that can help you burn fast faster. It is enough to get you started today on your journey to a whole new you.

God Bless and make it the Best Week Ever!

High Fiber Diets Work

September 28th, 2010 3 comments

These days, the ease of prepackaged snacks and accessibility of fast food restaurants has made our diets as well as our arteries thick with fats and processed sugars. We’ve decreased our consumption of fresh foods such as fruits and vegetables, and as a result, our fiber intake has severely dropped.

The Surgeon General, American Dietetic Association and the National Cancer Institute recommend that adults consume 20-35 grams of fiber every day for optimal health. They encourage us to increase our fiber intake to promote healthy digestion, heart health & weight maintenance. Sadly, most Americans are lucky if they consume 12-15 grams of fiber in their average diet. This is often blamed on the Standard American Diet, (or S.A.D.) which typically consists of high fat entrees, refined forms of carbohydrates, and is generally low in roughage.

Fiber contributes to a healthy cardiovascular system by helping us maintain healthy cholesterol levels. How does fiber work? Simply put, it works like a sponge! In the digestive system, soluble fiber absorbs water soluble fats like excess cholesterol, trapping it, and escorting it from the body in a healthy bowel movement.

Fiber also supports healthy blood sugar maintenance. This is accomplished as fiber slows down carbohydrate conversion to sugar, promoting a stable blood sugar in the body. This addresses our appetite, so we refrain from impulsively reaching for sugary snacks and high carbohydrate foods.

Fiber has also been shown to support digestive wellness through studies which connect high fiber diets to decreased incidence of colon disease, including Crohn’s, Colitis and even cancer. This is generally associated with the consumption of insoluble forms of fiber, known as roughage. Insoluble fiber works like a scrub brush or broom, sweeping waste from the walls of the intestine, promoting a healthy digestive environment.
As of late, fiber has gained increasing popularity as an aid to weight management. When you look at the nutritional facts associated with high fiber foods, you will find that they are low in calories. This means you can consume larger servings, without the associated fear of caloric overload. Fibrous foods such as whole grains, fruits and vegetables are also very filling. They fill your tummy, and even promote the release of satiety hormones. In this way, you eat less, and feel full longer.

If you are like many Americans following the S.A.D. diet, it is likely that your doctor has already encouraged you to eat more fiber. The ‘Five a Day’ recommendation of five servings of fruit and vegetables per day is a good starting point, and optimally, more is better. Simple dietary changes including adding a fiber supplement can provide substantial health benefits.

Staying Thin with the “Right” Diet

September 28th, 2010 4 comments

News Flash! This “just in” hot off the presses…

Researches now say that that Atkins and other low-carbohydrate diets do not help when it comes to staying thin. In a comparison between low-carbohydrate, low fat and reduced calorie diets, all participants started to regain weight after six months, and by twelve months there was little difference between the groups. “There is no clear evidence that Atkins-style diets are better than any others for helping people stay slim, despite the popularity and apparent success of the Atkins diet,” says Professor Arne Astrup of RVA University in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Ok…so maybe this is a bit melodramatic, but it drives home a point. We are living in a world of dietary confusion, a Land of Oz and make-believe, where facts are hard to find and commercial diets aim to keep us in a confused state and distract us from the truth. This is just one of the many barriers that people face when trying to lose weight.

So how are we expected to deal with all this dietary misinformation? Here is a suggestion. Ignore the hype, find a safe and healthy diet that makes good common sense, and stay with the plan for life. While this might not seem like any great revelation, it’s amazing how many dieters beat their heads against the wall struggling to lose weight, hoping that “this time” the results will be different. My friend, if this describes your experience with dieting, you are following the wrong plan and need to consider a different approach.

Think back for a moment about how many times you have heard that to lose weight you must be “disciplined” in your approach. Or to put it another way, to lose weight you must be willing to just give up eating your favorite foods (like ice cream) and dining at your favorite places (yes, those fast foods are definitely out of the question). If this ill-advice actually worked, The U.S. National Center for Health Statistics would no longer rank obesity as one of their leading health problems!!

It’s not that Atkins, Weight Watchers, South Beach or any other weight loss plan can’t help us to lose weight. Ask almost anybody, and they will tell you it’s a snap to lose a few pounds. And, in fact, it is! We have no problem at all losing weight on virtually any diet. The problem surfaces its ugly head when we step on the scale six months down the road. Our high hopes and aspirations for losing weight get crushed when we realize that our weight, like the prodigal son of Biblical report, has found its way back home.

Take a moment to consider this fact: According to a nationwide survey (Gardenburger Inc.) it is estimated that more than three-quarters of all women between the ages of 25 and 54 make a decision to lose weight each year. In this same survey, nine out of ten respondents reported disappointing long-term results (some respondents actually gained weight instead).

You see, losing weight is easy! Anyone on basically any diet can lose weight. The difficult and tricky part is in keeping the pounds from creeping back-on over time.

We’ve been misled with just about every possible explanation and cause for gaining weight, ad-infinitum. If it’s not our lack of commitment, then it’s our low self esteem, failing to plan, or for some other reason. You name it, and there’s an explanation out there! But, the truth be known, when it comes to getting and staying slim, most of these “explanations” don’t make much sense.

What really, really matters in the long run is whether our everyday eating habits and energy intake are in-balance with our everyday energy expenditure.

The reason 95% of commercial diets eventually fail is because they violate this simple principle. They are designed for the “quick fix”, not for normal everyday eating that can last a lifetime. Most commercial diets require additional time and effort to start and follow, and worse, attempt to deprive us of our favorite foods and stop us from eating at our favorite restaurants.

With our busy schedules and increasing demands both at home and work, trying to find even an extra 10 minutes a day can be a challenge. Spending hours, or even days trying to adjust to a new diet plan is not only unrealistic, but is a total waste of precious time!

We all love the novelty and intrigue of trying something different and starting the next new “fad” diet plan is no exception. But unfortunately, the outcome for most of these plans is unsatisfactory. Once the novelty and excitement wear off we’re usually right back to where we started.

Attempts to force-fit changes in our diet generally follow a pattern that goes something like this…

– We start a new diet program. Excitement runs high, we are motivated to the max, the pounds are dropping like crazy, and the World is a wonderful place.

– Our busy schedule gets even busier. There are kids to take care of, bosses to satisfy, and of course there are always those new diet guidelines to learn and follow.

– At some point we find ourselves smack-dab in the middle of a time management crisis, and looking for ways to save time.

– We decide to skip a few of the time consuming “special” diet meals and recipes “just this once”.

– Our “stash” of diet foods starts getting depleted, there’s no time for a full-blown grocery shopping experience, and we make the inevitable run to our local convenience store instead (ops……how did those snacks get into the grocery cart anyhow?).

…and so goes the story. We soon find that the restrictions, regulations and requirements of our new diet are incompatible with our normal eating habits. Before we even realize what’s happening we’re back to our old unhealthy, but more convenient way of eating. And the pile of dieting books and other special dieting paraphernalia we spend our hard earned money buying continues to grow.

The moral of the story is this; beware of diets that come loaded with all sorts of gimmicky and strange requirements and attempt to change our normal eating behavior. They are doomed to failure right from the start.

Find a diet that is practical, nutritious and in-balance with your everyday energy requirements. Do this, and you are guaranteed success!

No Diet, Fat Loss Discovery Shrinks Diet Food, Drug Industries Budgets While, Ridding People of Disease and Sickness!

September 28th, 2010 No comments

When I tell you about this newly discovered secret, you’re going to be so upset that you may even want to call your attorney. This secret is so powerful that the information should be given out at all Doctor’s offices and medical facilities.

I discovered this secret while searching the internet for a diet plan that would REALLY work for me. I’ve tried many different diet plans for fat loss and none of them do what I really want. What I really, really want is to be able to eat whatever I want, whenever I want and not worry about gaining weight.

After my struggle to lose weight and keep it off over the last several years I was forced to give up on all of the popular diet and exercise programs because I finally found the real reason why none of those programs ever work.

Through my research, I discovered an incredible female doctor from Arizona who has exposed a revolutionary breakthrough so powerful that all the diet and drug company gurus are out to shut her up.

You see, Dr Suzanne Gudakunst’s no diet fat loss plan could possibly put hundreds of diet and health professionals out of business.

Dr Suzanne discovered this secret a few years ago while she was focusing her studies on the colon and digestive system and how they affected nutritional absorption rates. She came to some exciting conclusions after conducting a few tests and studies of her own. She expanded her research and came up with this amazing discovery.

Doctor Gudakunst has gone on to correctly identify the correlation between plaque and parasites in the digestive tract and cases of obesity.

After six long years of research and study, this Arizona doctor was able to make available several all-natural methods for removing these dangerous plaques and digestive parasites. Her methods were used for some of the worse cases of obesity. These people were in eminent danger of losing their life; the results were 100% success.

She then went on to tailor her methods to see if the same results applied to those who were not obese but were just like me; a little overweight. Could a no diet fat loss plan be successful on someone like me? She found that her methods were just as productive in less severe cases with a 100% success rate.

Her treatment is so effective and powerful that it reverses some serious life threatening diseases. Diabetes, cancer and a multitude of other health problems and illnesses are linked to obesity.

Doctor Suzanne worked almost exclusively with patients on whom traditional medicine had given up. They had been told things like they only had a few months or years left to live. The ones who were not terminally ill were still told by their physicians that a normal life was just not possible. Once they used Doctor Suzanne’s treatments, they saw amazing results, completely opposite to what conventional medicine had told them.

There is nothing difficult about Dr Suzanne Gudakunst’s secret. You will not have to do any exercising or change the way you currently eat. I can tell you that after using Dr. Suzanne’s secret, I’ve lost more in one month than all of the other diet and exercise programs put together – and I feel incredibly energetic now. This has truly made a difference in my life.

The fact is the secret is merely a compilation of things already present in nature. The secret to this no diet fat loss program is simply a mixture of protective herbs, extracts and organic material that are found throughout our world. The key is in the precise combinations that create a solution to the world’s biggest problem of obesity and all the nasty little diseases and complications that come with it.

No matter how much weight you need to lose, ten pounds or a hundred you can do it thanks to Dr. Suzanne.

Obesity is an epidemic that is sweeping our nation and the whole world as 40% of the population is now believed to be obese.

Many experts were saying that corporate giants in the diet and drug industry would never allow the discovery of something like this to get released to the general public. They said this secret discovery will get swept under the carpet just like when they discovered that cars could go hundreds of miles on a gallon of gas.

There is no guarantee on how long this no diet weight loss will continue to be available. The huge drug companies as well as the diet food manufacturing industries are quickly trying to put a lid on Doctor Gudakunst’s secret.

Because Dr. Gudakunst’s secret worked so well for me, I recommend that you go to her website and check it out for yourself. Be aware though that there are some shocking graphics and information there. I was really ticked at the Drug and Diet Companies after I read all of the information she gave out.

Do not pass up the success stories that are posted at that site. Many people are having tremendous successes and are only too happy to share their stories. Read what others have to say about the no diet fat loss secret that has changed their lives forever.

My advice is to check out this web site immediately. If the big diet and drug gurus have their way, this secret will be gone tomorrow. When a billion dollar diet and drug industry is at stake, this “no diet fat loss secret” might not be around tomorrow.

You can learn a great deal more by visiting the Doctor’s website.
