“Be simply yourself and don’t compare or compete.”
I have been paying particular attention to my diet these past few years for a variety of reasons:
- In 2010, I had a cholesterol scare that motivated me to change my ways
- In 2012, I celebrated the exact middle of my life
- In 2014, I sold my previous company and dedicated my time and resources to researching and sharing best practices for happy living
- I recently learned that reducing inflammation with diet and other lifestyle practices can restore my body’s ability to function properly and maintain optimal health
Confusion & Empty Promises
I have also discovered how hard it is to find reliable information about healthy eating and weight loss. If you Google “weight loss” you get disinformation overload. On just the first screen I see terms like: Binge Eating, Food Addiction, 14-Day Free Trial, Diet Pill Warning, Weight Loss Institute, 16-Ways to Lose Weight Fast, Best Weight Loss Diets, plus many fantastic images of weight loss.
Find What Works Best for You
The only “right” system for nutrition and weight loss is the one that works for you. The eating and weight loss strategy you choose should fit your lifestyle and budget, and provide your mind and body with the fuel and nutrients needed to be healthy. Ultimately, your diet should help you reach and maintain your optimal weight.
If you love to prepare food and cook meals, if you enjoy reading and researching about optimal eating, or if you are on a budget, I recommend looking into Whole30, Grain Brain, Wheat Belly, and the Frugal Paleo Cookbook.
If you’re tight on time more than cash, or if you just want to plug into an easy, healthy, and effective solution for long-term weight loss, the system I use might be a good fit for you.
The Isagenix Cleansing and Fat Burning System is designed to gently rid the body of potentially harmful impurities, while infusing it with essential vitamins, botanicals and other natural ingredients to help shed pounds naturally without the use of laxatives, stimulants or diuretics.
I trust Isagenix because I have used and liked every product in their system.
Another reason I trust Isagenix is because of their commitment to invest in scientific research and provide independent clinical validation of its products. The company has funded several independent clinical studies for healthy weight loss performed at colleges and universities. The conclusions are excellent for both weight loss and cardiovascular health.
Studies by the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC)1 and Skidmore College2 have demonstrated outstanding results for subjects using the Isagenix system compared to a control group using a heart healthy diet, the gold-standard benchmark.
After 10-weeks, subjects using the Isagenix Cleansing and Fat Burning System averaged:
- 24 pounds weight loss
- 17% decrease in body fat
- 33% decrease in visceral fat
- 9% increase lean muscle mass
- 44% increase in toxins released
- 4-times more fat loss
- 4-times more increased lean muscle mass
- 2-times more increased metabolism
- 3-times more toxins released
The Isagenix system showed extraordinary advantages over a traditional heart-healthy diet for maintaining long-term weight loss using four measurements: body weight, visceral fat, body fat percentage, and lean body mass / body weight percentage. See final results here.
This easy, healthy, and scientifically proven system has worked for me and so many people. If we can do it, you can do it!
Take Your Time
May I offer this advice? Take your time. Does it really matter how long it takes? Just make the commitment to never stop this time.
Give yourself permission to take small steps, and introduce changes slowly but surely. After all, it has taken your entire life to get to where you are at this moment. Allow proper time to get from where you are now to where you want to be.
Right for YOU
The right system for nutrition and weight loss is the one that works for your life. Through several years of experimentation, I have developed a personalized program combining Isagenix products, Grain Brain concepts, and unprocessed, wholesome foods, that works great for me.
There are so many ways to get from here to there. Find the one that you can use to reach your goals and still enjoy living each day.
Before making any changes to your diet or exercise routines, please consult a physician.
