Vitamins and other supplements are common around the world for a good reason. Humans are not very good at consuming the recommended vitamins and minerals. We need help! For example:
75% of women are magnesium deficient, with risk of fatigue, insomnia, weight gain.
85% of those with obesity are vitamin D deficient, with risk of fatigue, weight gain, depression.
90% of Americans are chromium deficient, with risk of diabetes, weight gain.
100% (Everyone!) in one study did not consume enough vitamins and minerals.
Energy… ever want or need more? Are you more tired than you should be? Do you run out of energy before the day is over? Has your metabolism “slowed down” in recent years, making weight loss even more difficult? Do activities seem to require “too much effort” even though they were fun and easy in earlier years?
If your goal is to have more energy, especially from burning excess body fat, read further for ideas to turn your metabolism back on.
Ever hear two voices battling in your mind, fighting over what you’ll eat? A wise and caring angel in one ear telling you how healthy and fit you’ll be if you eat this or that. And a convincing little deceptive demon in the other ear whispering, “Don’t worry, be happy! Eat that burger and fries, the chocolate cake, AND the ice cream. You can diet tomorrow!”
I love seeing people take charge of their health and weight destiny… successfully! (In one of our studies, 73 patients lost an average of 47.1 lbs in just 9 months! I love that!!!) But weight loss is not “easy”. The fact is, significant weight loss and maintenance is one of the most difficult of human undertakings. You see, we have things like stress, dangerous foods, powerful cravings, and negative influences all around us.
Study after study has confirmed the power of medically designed meal replacements to deliver weight loss. By delivering generous amounts of high quality protein and plenty of variety, they can satisfy the cravings and appetite of almost any dieter. With the ability to provide great nutrition, limit calories AND satisfy cravings, they simplify and supercharge the efforts of dieters.
I hate feeling depressed! After all, feeling depressed will ruin a perfectly good day! I’ve learned to make “mood management” one of my personal priorities and I’m determined to prevent unnecessary depression (or even “feeling blue”) and its nasty consequences! Why let a bad mood hinder my life, my relationships, my productivity, and my service to others?
What we put in to our body impacts the health of our body. We know that, right? And yet the eating behavior of many Americans would make one believe this fact is still in question! The reality is that typical eating behaviors are not “logical” or “reasonable” when health consequences are considered…
