Are you feeling overweight, tired, or simply unhealthy? Have you tried to lose weight and failed?
You are not alone. Millions of Americans are caught in an obesigenic world that is plagued with fast food options around every corner, poor eating habits, a general lack of activity, high stress environments, insufficient sleep, and a "sick-care" health system. In this unsupportive environment, it is no wonder that two-thirds of adult Americans are overweight, and the predicted health of future generations is even more uncertain.
People go on hundreds of different diets only to re-gain the weight back, and more. Why does this happen? It’s very simple. The majority of the weight loss diets recommended are low calorie diets which translate into low protein, low fat and by definition high carbohydrates diets. The initial weight loss on these diets is mainly water/fluid. Why?
Because most of the weight loss comes from the breakdown of muscle, which is over 70% water. So while the scale may have a drop in numbers, the real weight loss is precious muscle loss, NOT fat loss. As people continue on these diets, their “normal fat” reserves start to dip.
When this happens the dieter gets hungry, irritable and gives up the diet to alleviate the discomfort. Then starts another diet days later to repeat the same pattern. This yo-yo- dieting actually lowers the metabolism which means that the body requires less food to live on and results in an increase in weight with the same amount of food consumed. It’s a vicious cycle! Continue Reading…

“If we only knew enough, all diseases could be prevented, and could be cured through proper nutrition. As tissues become damaged because they lack the chemicals of good nutrition, they tend to become old. They lack what I call “tissue integrity.”
There are people of 40 whose brains and arteries are senile. If we can help the tissues repair themselves by correcting nutritional deficiencies, old age can wait.”
