It comes as no surprise
that being overweight or obese
is America’s #1 Challenge.

The problem is so epidemic
that teens and even young children are FAT – and not in the cute way.

This business of promoting “eat less and exercise more” isn’t making a dent in the problem.

In typical American fashion,

  • There are committees examining the problem, academia and bureaucrats are pontificating.
  • Dignitaries, athletes and other notables are visiting grade schools, around the U.S., trying to convince little kids that they need to play more strenuously and consume a more healthful diet.
  • Clubs abound so people can “sweat off the fat together”, endure weekly weigh-ins or purchase pre-packaged meals so you can pop ‘em in the microwave.
Pharmaceutical companies are on the job, too!

They are searching, feverishly, to find anything that might stem this tide of obesity sweeping the world. (Let’s hope they come up with something safer than Redux and Phen Fen.)

The public is reacting to all of the publicity in three ways:

  1. Exercising too much – stressing their bodies and tearing up their joints
  2. Throwing away money at anyone who promises an easy diet or a magic pill
  3. Doing nothing


People who are overweight or obese are consuming too much of the wrong kinds of food and beverage.  Experience shows that obese and overweight people are:

  • Malnourished because their diet consists of packaged, preserved and processed and convenience food that is high in calories and lacking in nutrition.  As Joel Wallach MS, DVM, ND, a controversial, insightful author and speaker, writes in his book Rare Earths, Forbidden Cures (Double Happiness Publishing, Bonita CA, 91908): The bags of boxes, bags and cans of products, that people are buying, has less nutritional value than its packaging.
  • Deficient in minerals because the closest they get to fruit or vegetables is the paper mache imitations filling the bowls on their kitchen cabinet.
  • Constipated because the same food is lacking even a hint of fiber.
  • Unbalanced, internally, because most of the foods they are consuming are acidic.
  • Dehydrated because they drink too many diuretics like: coffee, soft drinks and energy drinks, and not enough water.

The predominately acid pH, attributable to their diet, affects virtually every function of the body including:

  • Metabolism is depressed, which affects energy levels, glucose utilization and the ability to deal with stress that, in turn, contributes to thyroid issues.
  • Tissue repair and regeneration is diminished because the transport of these essential building blocks, amino acids, minerals and vitamins, in short supply due to malnutrition, requires a more alkaline pH.
  • Cell function is reduced because the oxygen-carrying capacity of blood depends on balanced pH.
  • Cellular toxicity increases because the respiration of waste depends on balanced pH.
  • Cellular, tissue and organ damage, due to the heightened toxicity levels, produces inflammation, swelling and pain.
  • Fat cells are produced to encapsulate and isolate the metabolic and toxic wastes that are accumulating inside the body.

Need I go on?  The issue of being overweight or obese boils down to one question:  How often do you see a healthy overweight or obese person?

To underscore this point, the probability of succumbing to one of the top 5 killers of adult Americans:  Heart Disease, Stroke, Chronic Respiratory Disease, Diabetes and Cancer, is significantly reduced when people lose weight.


People who are overweight or obese
do not need another lecture about their weight.

They need a reliable, cost effective method
to help them achieve their objective – lose weight.

That help can be a dietary supplement.  However, there is a misconception that simply revving up metabolism will solve the problem.  It many situations, it is a minor component and it may even exacerbate an already complicated situation.

The 3 different facets of the issue are:

  1. Nutritional and mineral deficiencies
  2. Regularity and internal balance
  3. Day time and night time metabolism
They are, more often than not, the source of the perceived lack of energy experienced by most people who are overweight or obese.

Frankly, dispelling the misconception about “revving things up to lose weight” is difficult to overcome because many people want a quick fix for their weight dilemma, and may not be willing to invest the time and effort to undo the harm caused, either knowingly or unknowingly, by their own choices.

Unfortunately, there is little that can be done
to change their perception and its likely outcome.

[alert-white]There are people who recognize that their weight gain occurred over time
and, consequently, it will require time to reverse the situation. 

Furthermore, they know there is a direct correlation between magnitude of their situation and the level of intervention that is required to address it.

It is helpful, for these people, to embark on a regimen of specific dietary supplements, depending on their particular needs, that addresses nutritional deficiencies such as:

Of course, drinking adequate amounts of water, adding moderate exercise, to match your physical capacity, and eating better will round out the equation for healthy weight loss.

Losing weight is simple, if you have the right tools!
