Natural Weight Control

I found it: Natural Weight Control

No, I’m not talking about wearing a corset or taping your mouth shut so you can’t eat. Those sure are “natural” methods of weight control, but they’re not very fun—or healthy! I’m talking about something much better than that. A supplement that is natural, organic, and clinically developed in a nutrition clinic. It’s called Genesis Pure Metabolic Boost and I’m a huge fan. The supplement, a blend of herbal and nutritional ingredients that promote the burning of fat and calories, helps control appetite, reduce food cravings, boost metabolism, burn fat, regulate the thyroid, balance blood sugar levels, and increase energy.

You might be saying, right. You’ve heard it all before. This kind of thing usually contains a load of ephedrine or other harsh stimulants, and loads of caffeine to keep you alert and suppress the appetite. Nope. Genesis Pure Metabolic Boost does not contain ma huang or ephedrine or other stimulants, and the only caffeine is naturally occurring, from Green Tea and Guarana Extract. This stuff was clinically developed in a world famous nutrition clinic. It’s not some concoction designed to falsely make your adrenaline race.

I got free samples of the Metabolic Boost and felt it working within the first 3 days. Then I started seeing a lower number on the bathroom scale after about 8 days. I am thrilled.

You can get free samples, too. Click the link below to get started. And come back and let me know what you think. I’m excited to share the good news with you.

Stock Your Fridge

Healthy Pairings: When the munchies hit, convenience often trumps nutrition. Set the stage for smart snacking by storing smart food combos side by side, even when only one needs refrigeration. Yummy duos include yogurt with low-fat granola, and whole-grain crackers with string cheese.

Fruits and Veggies: Hidden in crisper drawers, they’re out of sight, out of mind -and off your plate. Move produce to a more visible spot on the top or middle shelf, and you’ll be significantly more likely to eat it.

Male Virility and Food

“The testes, the sex glands of male mammals- including men- normally contain a great concentration of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), an Omega-3 fatty acid. (Prostaglandins were first discovered in the prostate gland, hence the name.) Human beings can manufacture DHA in their bodies from parent Omega-3 alpha linolenic acid or get DHA from fats and oils in fish and shellfish by eating those foods. With an undersupply of DHA, the male sexual system is left in less than ideal working order. Several men in the Omega-3 study who took linseed oil supplements reported an increased sex drive. Folklore citing oysters as “virility food” may have a basis in fact, since oysters contain zinc and Omega-3, which are essential for male reproductive organ health. Many species of oysters and other shellfish, which are otherwise low in fat, are rich in Omega-3 EPA and DHA.” (p. 65)

Cherries: Answering That Snack Attack

“On a diet? Have some cherries. You may not think of cherries as a diet food, but we do– and we have good reason. For one, fresh cherries can fill the bill for dieters who enjoy sweets. They also allow you to follow the golden rule of “behavior modification” that the experts extol: that is, eat slowly. If you grab a candy bar in response to a snack attack, you can gobble down 300 calories in no time at all. Bet you can’t eat 300 calories worth of cherries nearly as fast. And research by obesity expert Henry Jordan, MD, has suggested that foods that are easily wolfed down are more likely to cause trouble because the body doesn’t have the time it needs to let the feeling of fullness take over.” (p. 127)
