The Cheater’s Diet

Last year alone Americans spent in excess of $64 billion in an attempt to lose weight.

The sad result of that is that over 94% of all these people will fail. There are several reasons for this high rate of failure from following the wrong diet to psychological and emotional influences.

It is pretty much an accepted fact that almost all dieters regularly cheat on their diet thereby sabotaging their results, you can listen to my Podcast about The Cheater’s Diet.

Diet programs all seek to find ways to reduce or prevent this cheating, but no program has ever solved that problem. Psychological issues like immediate gratification plus physical problems like fluctuating blood sugar, drive many dieters to regularly cheat, consuming foods they shouldn’t.

When the dieter cheats and returns to the diet center they are most often shamed and criticized for being weak willed and insincere about their weight loss. Instead of looking at the causes for this behavior most diet programs blame the dieter. Our weight management program looked at this problem and decided to handle it in a very different way. Instead of chastising and criticizing dieters for cheating, our program encourages it!

In fact, a routine cheating, done our way, is a key factor for the program’s success. By allowing cheating in specific ways, the dieter feels like they can still enjoy their favorite foods. Once you understand how the biochemistry of the body works regulated cheating can actually stimulate the metabolism and encourage further weight loss. Our program, called The Weight Management Revolution, will change the way people look at excess body weight and by analyzing how their body metabolizes various foods before they diet, we will be able to ensure greater long-term success.

Is High Cholesterol Bad?

It seems that everyone is either afraid of having elevated cholesterol or having already been diagnosed with this problem. Statin drugs, along with their host of potentially serious side effects, are handed out like candy by physicians who have been led to believe that cholesterol is a major factor in heart disease.

The fact of the matter is cholesterol has never ever caused one case of heart disease in medical history. This is not to say that excessively high cholesterol is healthy or even normal, but it does not cause heart disease. If your cholesterol is elevated, above 220 total cholesterol, it is a sign that you have a liver problem. At least 80% of all the total cholesterol in your body at any given time was manufactured internally in your liver. The remaining 20% or so, may come from diet. This is why low-cholesterol, low-fat diets are relatively ineffective for lowering cholesterol levels. The less cholesterol you consume in your diet the more your liver manufactures.

In order to address this problem, we need to address liver function through detoxification and key nutrients. Once the liver has been properly addressed it will once again in most cases, normalize its production of cholesterol according to need and not to excess. The nutrients that have proven effective for this task have been combined in a convenient easy to take formula. In addition to being effective, an added benefit is the fact that they have no side effects whatsoever, unlike statin drugs which can be thwarted with many side effects, some of them serious. The cholesterol formula that we researched and developed here in our Institute is called The Best Cholesterol Support Supplement. Check back next week for more information about High LDL and Liver Toxcity.

Bre Payton Dies at 26 From Swine Flu

We are reminded once again about the dangers or potential dangers of the various strains of the flu virus. The H1N1 flu virus recently claimed the life of a 26-year-old female. Bre Payton a broadcast journalist, succumbed to this virus with no apparent warning whatsoever. The debate rages on over whether to get a flu shot or not. The purpose of our discussion today is not to make that determination since that is a personal choice for each person.

Our discussion revolves around other factors that you can do to strengthen your immune system to help it defend you against all sorts of pathogens, no matter what they are. We know for example, that even the flu shot cannot protect you from all strains of the virus so it would make sense to strengthen your own internal Department of Defense, which does have the ability to protect you if it remains strong. There are key nutrients which have been proven to support and boost immune function. Here in our research center we have developed a multifaceted broad-spectrum Best Immune Support Supplement, which has proven over the many years to have protected people against colds, the flu, and a wide variety of other potential pathogens. Check back next week for more information about the best immune system booster.

Jillian Michael’s Is Wrong

Recently fitness advocate and television personality Jillian Michaels came out with a series of statements and articles downplaying the benefits and even the safety of ketogenic type diets. It is unfortunate that people in that position choose to spread information that they have virtually no knowledge of and certainly no educational background for doing so.

I’m sure that as a fitness coach and an exercise guru she is effective, but when it comes to dietary advice and certainly biochemistry she falls far short. Her comments about the ketogenic or low carbohydrate diet are both unfounded and unreal.

Furthermore, they are untrue. The overwhelming evidence that we have today, and in fact since the early 1970s, continually illustrates the benefits of the ketogenic type diet for diabetes, obesity, and even common overweight problems. She is subscribing to an outdated paradigm by the Dietetic Association wherein all weight loss and weight management is simply calories in and calories out.

This concept has proven to be ineffective for the majority of overweight and obese individuals. Programs like The Biggest Loser, which she was a part of for some time, are doing a tremendous dis-service to those who are overweight and obese.

The program and lifestyle these programs suggest are unreal and impossible to maintain. Once individuals go off of these programs or those similar, they invariably regain all of their lost weight and more over a very short period of time. It’s truly sad that someone with her level of popularity in certain circles advocates against something that she obviously has no understanding of.

I refer you to the works of the late Robert Adkins MD, as well as Jason Fung, MD, who have established and continue to establish the benefits not only for weight loss but for optimal wellness of the ketogenic type program. Here at our research Institute we evaluate each client before they are placed on a weight management program. Once we establish their metabolic type we can design a program, which often revolves around the ketogenic type diet, but not exclusively, to best suit their body needs. Our work is based in science and not marketing. Check back next week for more Weight Loss Tips.

New Year’s Weight Loss Goals

Call Dr Whiting Today At 1-888-454-8464

Every New Year hundreds of thousands if not millions of people take up the gauntlet once again to try to lose weight. In fact, weight loss has become a natural obsession all year long.

 

 

Why is this? Why is it that we lose weight only to regain it back and oftentimes even more? This year your first weight loss goal should be to not only succeed but permanently keep dangerous weight off without permanent dieting. How can we do this? The first step is to create a desire or find a desire to reach a healthier body weight. The next step would be to use that desire to create motivation to follow through. Once you have this mindset in place, the next step would be to find a weight management program that will work best for you. You can order your Weight Loss Support Kit from Phoenix Nutritionals today to help you get started on this journey. 

Not all of us will lose weight in the same way, the same speed, or with the same diet program. You can hedge your bet and make the process much easier by identifying how your body manages various foods before you start your program. Our research center has developed an easy Weight Loss Management Survey that can identify not only how your body handles various foods, but also the best weight management program for your success. Check back next week for more information about Weight Loss Goals.

Jason Fung & The New Diabetes Revolution

I have been working with individuals with Type II Diabetes for 40 years.

During that time, I have seen mainstream medicine and dietetics wage war against those of us early pioneers who were saying that the way diabetes is being treated is not only wrong but it’s killing them, creating a premature demise.

Fortunately, things are finally changing and like most changes this one is happening from within. Those of us on the so-called fringe were easy to ignore, easy to ridicule, and easy to silence.

Now the same message, 40 years later, is coming from within their own ranks. Jason Fung is a Medical Doctor and Nephrologist, or Kidney Doctor, by specialty.

His wonderful book entitled The Diabetes Code and his educational efforts within the medical community are turning doctors away from the old paradigm and towards a new and better program.

Just like we have been doing for 40 years he is teaching them that diabetes has little to do with blood sugar and everything to do with insulin.

He is showing them that through strict carbohydrate consumption reduction as well is intermittent fasting, we can reverse the epidemic of Type II Diabetes. Our research center is in an ideal position, with our many decades of experience, to assist diabetics in slowly reversing their condition.

If you know someone with this dreaded condition share the information that there is now new hope from an old paradigm that still works as well today as it did when we introduced it many decades ago. Check back next week for more Healthy Nutrition Information.

Dr Whiting Keto Podcast

I was recently featured on a podcast with the Keto Island Boyz. Their primary focus is to spread the benefits and the concept of low carbohydrate moderate fat dieting. In Hawaii obesity is nearly 60% among native Hawaiians. The diet that they consume today, which was very different from their ancestors, is slowly killing those people by driving their insulin levels to dangerous highs. These are two guys who found the benefits of low carbohydrate dieting and now have recently began to introduce intermittent fasting into their programs as well. They are two really smart guys who simply want to help people free themselves from all the dangers of obesity and diabetes. I’m sure I will be guesting again in the near future.

Vitamin Supplement Absorption

When it comes to nutrient intake our ability to absorb nutrients from food and supplements declines with each passing decade. Therefore, as we age, we must become ever more aware of our digestive process and should we begin to experience signs of compromise to digestion and subsequent absorption such as gas, bloating, indigestion, heartburn, and even acid reflux, our first line to improvement should be to fix the digestive issues. Once we have addressed this, we should next look to our supplements. Are they hard compressed tablets? If this is so you may be getting very little in the way of nutrient absorption from supplements of this nature.

Our personal choices for supplement delivery would include micro thin gelatin capsules, which can dissolve in as little as two minutes in the stomach and of course liquid suspensions. The only time that a tablet would be beneficial is in the case of enteric coating, which is done to help protect delicate nutrients inside the formula. A liquid baseline supplement, which provides the 100+ nutrients the human body needs for ideal conditions would be our first choice. Check back next week for more information about Vitamin Supplement Absorption.

New Cholesterol Guidelines

The drug companies are at it again. They are on a campaign to ensure that their sales of statin drugs will reap even bigger profits in the New Year. A story that appeared on Good Morning America, once again touting the wonders of statins but of course no mention of the often terrible side effects these drugs can cause.

These include calcium loss, memory loss, muscle cramps, type II diabetes, muscle damage, neurological damage, and liver damage to name just a few. An increasing number of studies are showing that statins are not the wonder drugs we have been told. In fact there is no evidence that they can actually prevent a heart attack.

This is not to say that high levels of cholesterol, especially the LDL variety, are good. In fact elevated cholesterol is most often a sign of a liver problem. My new Cholesterol Support Formula has been reformulated and now helps to support better HDL levels, which is the ‘good’ cholesterol. You can obtain this formula, which has no side effects, from Phoenix Nutritionals at:

How to Lower Cholesterol levels

How to lower cholesterol levels? Of all the common and I suppose popular health concerns or perceived health concerns, is the one revolving around cholesterol. This natural and essential substance has been the target of the medical industry for several decades. It has been blamed for the heart disease epidemic, of which there is no basis in fact whatsoever. In fact, there is not one clinical study in any peer-reviewed journal that has ever been able to establish that cholesterol causes heart disease. By the time cholesterol begins adhering to the artery walls 90% of the atherosclerotic process is already over.

By waging war with cholesterol, we are now driving cholesterol levels to dangerously low levels through the use of powerful statin drugs, which have a multitude of side effects of their own. Medicine now seeks to lower cholesterol levels to 150 or less. What they forget in their blind war on cholesterol is that levels of total cholesterol below 150 puts you at a 10 times greater risk for a stroke. This is because cholesterol is used as a lubrication for the cardiovascular system, keeping it flexible and pliable.

If you are concerned about elevated cholesterol there are a wide variety of nutrients that can be of help in addressing the problem. 80% of the cholesterol in your body is manufactured in your liver in response to need. If you reduce the amount of cholesterol in your diet eventually the liver will increase production to compensate. Because the liver also has to manage all toxins internally, it can become overstressed and the balance of cholesterol production can be interrupted, resulting in production higher than necessary. By addressing liver function through the use of several key nutrients, which have been proven extremely effective, we can retrain the liver to produce the right amounts of cholesterol for our well-being. Check back next week for more information about Cholesterol Myths.

What Chiropractors Treat

We have many chiropractors who use and swear by our Natural Anti-Inflammatory Support Formula, it is what chiropractors use for most patients. This formula is so powerful that it can aid the body in controlling inflammation at various levels.

Since chiropractors work with individuals who almost universally have an inflammatory problem, it’s no wonder that they are excited about this formula. This formula contains natural supportive nutrients from a wide variety of sources making it an ideal targeted formula for those wishing to provide inflammation support.

As chiropractors began to discover the multitude of benefits from this formula they recommend it for an increasing number of their patients. We have many clients who have used this formula successfully for years, and our recently reformulated product is proving to be even more effective.

Those with stiff achy joints, arthritis, and other inflammatory issues are receiving enhanced benefits. Silent inflammation, that’s inflammation that cannot be felt, can often be more damaging because it goes on without the individual being aware of it. Our Natural Anti-Inflammatory Support is beneficial for those individuals as well.

Full Spectrum High Vitality Liquid-gel Caps

The new and improved Full Spectrum High Vitality Liquid-gel Caps. As many of you have already discovered; our new Full Spectrum High Vitality Liquid-gel Caps are pretty amazing. We now can offer the high absorption of the liquid together with the convenience of a capsule. Our liquid filled capsules are completely sealed and are ideal for both home use and for traveling. While we can’t get the full range of nutrients in the small capsules that we can in our liquid formula our new liquid filled caps offer an excellent alternative for those on the go or for those who simply prefer not to take a liquid supplement.

Since their introduction the new Full Spectrum High Vitality Liquid-gel Caps have continuously sold out, forcing the need for immediate reordering. As a formulator, I am most pleased with this recent development and it is just one of several new and improved formulas that we will be releasing over the next few months. It was time to take a look at some of our existing formulas and even as good as they were, some of them could be improved by the addition of other ingredients, which are supported by current scientific research.

In every instance we feel that the additions made to our flagship formulas will improve their function ability. The new Full Spectrum High Vitality Liquid-gel Caps, in liquid form, are already making waves of their own, with people reporting increased energy, alertness and an overall sense of well-being. I have increased the B complex for extra energy as well as the vitamin D since research is showing the majority of us are severely vitamin D deficient. If you haven’t had the chance to try the new Full Spectrum High Vitality Liquid-gel Caps you should do so right away. You will find their benefits and their energy enhancing properties to be a pleasant addition to your daily wellness routine.

Do diet sodas cause belly fat?

Do diet sodas cause belly fat? We have commented often for many years about diet sodas or soft drinks. It is now a proven fact that these diet sodas can have a negative effect on weight loss during dieting and in many instances can actually cause weight gain. The process by which this occurs is somewhat complicated and it involves the stimulation of insulin by the taste buds of something sweet.

The body does not have the wisdom to understand artificial sweeteners, so it perceives them as sugars, secreting insulin when they are ingested. The end result of this is an increase in insulin and a decrease in blood sugar or glucose. As this process continues cravings for real sugary foods increase. The elevated insulin causes the body not only to retain stored fat but also to retain excess water or fluid. While everyone is different, we have seen people actually gain weight while consuming three or more diet sodas per day. If you feel you must enjoy an occasional diet soda while dieting, try to always consume them with a meal that contains adequate protein. This will help to retard the fluid retention and weight gain properties associated with these drinks. If you wish to accelerate your weight loss, consider abstaining from these diet sodas at least through the initial phases of your weight loss program. You will likely be rewarded with a faster and more efficient weight loss result. Check back next week for more information about belly fat.

Type II Diabetes is Reversible

I first began my work with alternative medicine and nutrition in the arena of type II diabetes, hypoglycemia, and other insulin related disorders such as obesity. Over the years medicine has come a long way in their approach to these disorders. So much so that finally medicine is now acknowledging that these conditions are not disorders of excess blood sugar but rather disorders of excess insulin production. This is been the foundation of my work for the past 30+ years. I have gone from ridicule to tolerance and finally to acceptance.

For decades we have been approaching these conditions from the wrong end. If we focus our attention and efforts on controlling insulin production these conditions especially type II diabetes, can often be brought completely under control. The body produces insulin in response to sugar forming foods, which eventually convert to glucose or blood sugar. As the glucose rises in the blood, insulin is secreted from the pancreas to mobilize it and store it for later use. Over time this excess insulin production can lead to what we call receptor cell burnout. This is when the insulin receptor sites become desensitized in response to the constant elevation of insulin bombarding the cell. This condition is called insulin resistance. The more insulin resistance the higher the blood sugar levels will rise.

We can approach management of the situation in several ways. First and foremost dietary changes, which must include a drastic reduction in carbohydrates or sugar forming foods. This will naturally lower blood glucose levels and subsequently reduce insulin production. As insulin levels fall the receptor sites, over time, will begin to increase their sensitivity once again and will facilitate glucose transport with less insulin rather than more. The next step would be to introduce key nutrients that have been shown to help spare or modulate glucose as well as directly lower insulin levels. Key minerals would include chromium as well as vanadium. Herbal or plant extracts have also proven to be very beneficial. These would include cinnamon extract, bilberry, and others.

It is now believed that there are specific genes that are responsible for these disorders, especially type II diabetes. Once these are isolated it may be possible to alter them and make type II diabetes a disease of the past. In the meantime however, the best way to control blood sugar disorders is by addressing insulin levels. Medical scientists are now finally looking at the benefit of such things as intermediate fasting for controlling insulin production. For decades medicine has been mismanaging these diseases and causing many terrible side effects. Thankfully that time is changing and there is nothing but hope and promise in the years ahead.

High Vitality Liquid Vitamins at 24 hour Fitness

I am pleased to report that many 24-hour fitness centers have members that are enjoying the energizing and balancing benefits of High Vitality Liquid Vitamin. This formula is like nothing we have ever seen before. It provides at least 100 or more nutrients in one single dose, which is convenient because it’s a liquid.

You simply take 1 ounce of the liquid either straight or mixed in juice or whatever you wish, and the benefits are lasting throughout the day. It is amazing the increase in energy, vitality, and well-being that we see in people who use this formula.

What many people don’t realize is that increased exercise actually depletes many nutrients through perspiration and increased metabolism. While the benefits of this process are clearly evident, replacing those nutrients provides an extra added effect and benefit to those who do so. 24 Hour Fitness Trainers have been recommending the High Vitality Liquid Vitamin to several of their clients who complained of lack of energy and overall well-being.

The majority of them, in just a couple of weeks’ time, have indicated that they are sleeping better, have more energy, and an overall sense of well-being that they have not experienced in quite a long time. I strongly encourage other 24-hour Fitness Center Trainers to consider recommending and utilizing the high vitality liquid supplement from Phoenix Nutritionals. Check back next week for more information about High Vitality Liquid Gel-Caps.

Endorsed by Curves For Women

Having meet with many owners of Curves For Woman fitness center I can tell you that their business has literately been revived by introducing their members to the High Vitality Liquid Vitamin and the Blood Sugar Support Capsules offered through Phoenix Nutritionals.

We are seeing greater results in many different arenas. Members have more energy, sleep better, and as such, work out more regularly and with greater enthusiasm.

The Blood Sugar Support Formula is helping members to control their cravings for starch and sugary foods, which in turn is helping them to lose excess weight more easily.

This unique formula not only helps to control cravings, but as a result, members are seeing much more stable blood sugar and insulin levels. While it’s not specifically a weight loss formula I have seen greater results with this formula than with many so-called weight loss supplements. It is amazing to me how many of their members are actually nutrient deficient.

I have started giving them the Institute’s Nutrient Evaluation Test and the results are very revealing and sometimes worrisome. By adding the high vitality full-spectrum liquid I can further reduce appetite and cravings because often for the first time, their nutrient deficiencies no longer exist. I am sure Curves For Women Headquarters is taking note and slowing sending this message to every Curves owner because they know the others would see vast improvements and benefits that I have seen with their members.

Full Spectrum Liquid Vitamins

As the mean population continues to age there are increased concerns about both digestion and absorption of nutrients. Health supplements are becoming more and more essential due to the degradation of our food sources. The worst form of supplementation often occurs in the tablets. Tablets do have their place but tend to be far less absorbable, especially with elderly people. The new micro thin capsules are an ideal replacement for tablets because they can break down in the stomach in as little as two minutes, making the nutrients rapidly available to the system. Liquid vitamins have been long accepted as an ideal and optimal way to deliver nutrients to the body. Unfortunately, they can be inconvenient, difficult to travel with, and many people seem to find them, especially those high in the B complex, to have a pungent taste. Recently technology has developed a capsule in which true liquids can be kept. This now gives us the benefit of both possible worlds. Firstly, the convenience of a capsule and secondly the absorption benefits of the liquid. We now can deliver men’s vitality supplements, women’s vitality supplements, healthy aging supplements, stress supplements, as well as nutrients for appetite control and even mood support in a liquid capsule. The best vitamins for energy would include high B complex, which had always been an issue in liquid supplements because of their potentially offensive taste. Now we can deliver the benefits of high B vitamins, the best vitamins for energy, without the B complex taste.

New Formulas Coming Soon

As many of you know I regularly review all of my formulas to ensure that they represent the latest in scientific advancements. It was time to do that again. As a result we will be launch our New and Improved versions of our High Vitality Capsules, Blood Sugar Support, Best Cholesterol Support and our Best Immune Support.  These updated formulas will represent the latest in nutritional science. Check out some of the additions:

High Vitality Caps – They will now come in Liquid filled capsules, which will provide the absorption of our liquid but in a convenient capsule. They will supply antioxidants, trace minerals, and phytonutrients from a blend of over 40 fruits and vegetables.

High Vitality Capsules Multivitamin 120 Caps

Best Cholesterol Support – I have added niacin because it has shown to increase HDL – the good cholesterol. Also several other supportive nutrients to round out the science.

Best Cholesterol Support Supplement 60 Caps

Best Immune Support – In addition to all the previous ingredients I have added an array of antioxidants since free radical activity has the ability to depress immune function.

Best Immune Support Supplement 60 Caps

Blood Sugar Support – This formula has been upgraded to include several herbal extract, which have shown benefit in supporting healthy blood sugar and insulin levels. This formula is even more effective and managing cravings for starch and sugary foods.

Blood Sugar Support Supplement 90 Caps

Personal Nutrition Evaluation

We are pleased to release our new streamlined Personal Nutrition Evaluation. This Personal Nutrition Evaluation is very effective in helping to determine potential nutrient deficiencies that may be contributing to a wide variety of health challenges, such as arthritis, diabetes, digestive disorders, hormonal imbalances, as well as premature aging factors.

This Personal Nutrition Evaluation is easy to take, and it is based on the symptoms that your body is telling you. These symptoms are the language of the human body and if we pay attention those symptoms can give us forewarning of more dire problems to come if they are not addressed. Prevention is far more important and far less invasive than most treatments. Unfortunately, most of us ignore the language of the body and allow those symptoms to slowly worsen until we are in a more serious situation. By taking our Personal Nutrition Evaluation it will give us clues as to what should be addressed now in the form of dietary changes and dietary supplements to perhaps re-balance the body chemistry and prevent a host of future health challenges. Check back next month for more information about Personal Nutrition Evaluations.

Ketogenic Diet

The ketogenic diet craze. Ketogenic diets have been in use since the early 1970s and even before. The dietetic Association does its best to discourage and dissuade people from using these programs for no other reason other than they just don’t understand. Because these programs are so effective for so many people they keep returning in popularity over and over again. Currently the so-called Keto program is gaining popularity once again. Let’s take a look at why these diet programs remain popular and remain effective for millions of people who use them.

Ketosis is a term we use when a human body is utilizing fat for fuel instead of glucose or body sugar. Because the standard American diet has become so heavily laden with sugar and sugar forming foods, we have created an epidemic of what is called insulin resistance and subsequent obesity. Even just 20 or 25 years ago we would generally not see insulin resistance in individuals until they reached 40 years of age or so. Today we see moderate to severe insulin resistance in people as young as their teen years. Each generation inherits this potentially deadly situation at a younger and younger age, fueled by constant consumption of sugar and sugar forming foods. Genetically speaking our ancestors did not have access to nor did they consume concentrated sugars in these incredibly high amounts. Their lifestyle and their eating habits were much different from ours. Our ancestors were physical people, most of them did physical labor or work, which helps to burn any excess glucose formed from dietary foods. In those days people consumed about 20 pounds of sugar per year per person. Today however, the average person consumes his or her own body weight in sugar or more annually. For some people this appears, at least on the surface, not to present overt problems such as elevated blood sugar, insulin resistance or obesity. But for many, many millions of people it has done exactly that. Insulin resistance, obesity, and type II diabetes are at epidemic proportions like at no other time in human history. This is why the ketogenic type diet has become so effective for the majority of these individuals.

As we said before, ketosis is the process the body goes through when it burns fat for fuel instead of glucose. Stored body fat, which leads to overweight and obese conditions, is the result of the body’s hormone called insulin, which converts glucose or rather excess glucose into triglycerides and stores them in your fat cells. This process has virtually no limit, which is why some people can gain an excess 100, 200 or more pounds without stopping. Once an individual becomes insulin resistant there are only two ways to effectively address this serious issue. The first is through dietary restrictions. These individuals must greatly curtail their consumption of sugar and sugar forming foods in order to lower their insulin levels and halt the conversion of this excess glucose to body fat. The second potential benefit in managing insulin resistance can come from key nutrients. Chromium, vanadium, aspartic acid, and several herbal extracts such as cinnamon, can help regulate and modulate blood sugar and subsequently insulin levels. The ketogenic diet, now referred to as the Keto diet, is generally safe and effective for most everyone. We are often taught by dietitians and well-meaning physicians that a state of ketosis is potentially dangerous. However, unless you have a unique metabolic disorder, nothing could be further from the truth. There are generations of indigenous peoples who go from cradle to grave in a constant state of ketosis. These individuals are lean, healthy, strong, and overall physically fit. Fortunately, many medical doctors are beginning to see the value, benefit, and safety of these types of programs. If we are ever to get a handle on the obesity epidemic it will only be through ketogenic approaches. The standard American diet and our own inactivity have contributed to this deadly disease process and only by reducing or greatly controlling the consumption of carbohydrate foods will there be hope and help for the tens of millions of people suffering from this disorder. Medical science is all too aware of the dozens and dozens of complications that can result as a direct link to obesity, not the least of which is type II diabetes, which has become epidemic in the last 20 years.

There are many forms of the Keto diet such as the Atkins approach, the Keto approach, and our own unique program, which we developed right here in our research Institute of Nutritional Science. If you have tried low-calorie diet programs without success, it is likely that you are insulin resistant, especially if you are 50 pounds or more overweight. You can take the guesswork out of determining the biochemical causes for your obesity by taking our Weight Management Evaluation. This evaluation can pinpoint how your body metabolizes various food groups and is designed to help us develop a weight management program that will have the greatest chance of success for you.

Men’s High Vitality

The nutrients that are important to a man for the most part are important to women as well as. Men tend to want to emphasize the nutrients for maximum energy as well as performance and recovery. Men’s vitality supplements therefore should place emphasis on the B complex nutrients as well as the trace minerals such as magnesium, zinc, and many others. Taking a Personal Nutrition Evaluation may help in making a final decision.

Plant derived trace minerals are especially important when developing a broad range supplement for men. When you consider the importance of using a dietary supplement you should choose one that is the best available. Cheap vitamins often contain forms of nutrients that are almost totally un-absorbable at the cellular level of the body. Supplements in tablet form, while being convenient, have the poorest rate of absorption, especially in those of us over the age of 50. Since we now know that the average diet provides less than half of the optimal nutrients we need daily, it is essential that we not only supplement with a high quality dietary supplement but ensure that it has the highest absorption rate possible. Powerful customer testimonials are always a good sign that the product is of highest quality and Liquid Vitamins on Amazon is also a good place to start.

Hangry Meaning

There is a new term that is rapidly becoming more popular and that is something called ‘hangry’, which is a combination of hunger and anger.

This can often be observed when people do not eat properly or they go long periods of time without eating. This sets up a situation where they become irritable, excitable, and react, oftentimes aggressively, because of it. So far researchers have focused on the psychological issues that hunger can produce and they certainly are valid, but there’s far more to the picture if we look deeper into the biochemical changes that occur during hunger. For many people prolonged hunger, even a few hours, can have a drastically negative effect upon their blood sugar. We know by studying diabetics and those with hypoglycemia that low blood sugar can produce a variety of symptoms including nervousness, shakiness, emotional swings, and even anger and aggression.

During periods of low blood sugar the body sees this situation as an acute danger. This in turn, causes the body to produce stress hormones such as adrenaline, which increases heart rate, respiration, and perspiration. Prolonged overstimulation of the stress hormones can eventually exhaust our adrenal glands, increasing the downward spiral during episodes of fluctuating blood sugar. If you are one of these individuals who experiences these symptoms if you’re unable to eat regularly, you should consider keeping something with you such as a mixed nuts. These will help keep your blood sugar stable until you can eat a proper meal once again. If you are a high stress individual this will only exacerbate your physiological and emotional response to blood sugar fluctuations. You should consider using a high stress multi nutrient formula to help support your central nervous system as well as the adrenal glands, keeping them strong.

Full Spectrum Nutrition

In the mid-1990s I wrote an article entitled ‘not all supplements are created equal’. This article caused quite a stir at the time in the nutrition supplement industry. This was because I pointed out a rarely used but essentially important factor when developing a dietary supplement formula. Everyone was on the potency bandwagon, turning out formulas with higher and higher potencies in an attempt to lure the consumer into the concept that more is better. While potency is important, it is certainly not the only factor that should go into product development. The area that is almost exclusively overlooked is that of ratios.

Nutrients compete for passage across cell membranes. Those nutrients with the greater electrical potential can, if present to excess, prevent the absorption of lesser strength nutrients at the cellular level. This is especially acute when it comes to minerals. Since all minerals bear an electrical charge, it is extremely important to consider this when assembling any dietary supplement. Check back next week for more information about Liquid V’s Capsules, Full Spectrum Nutrition.

Liquid Vitamins Absorb Better

Here in our research center we are often asked the question about absorption. There are three basic ways in which supplements are provided to the human body; through tablets, capsules, and liquid delivery systems. Each of these has their potential benefit but some of them are less desirable than others under most circumstances. Generally speaking tablets are the least absorbed. This is because the tableting process compresses nutrients so tightly as to resemble rock-like substances, which are often very hard to break down digest and absorb, especially for people over the age of 40. Capsules can be a convenient an ideal way to deliver nutrients for a specific purpose, such as for arthritis, diabetes, inflammation, cholesterol support, and others.

If the gelatin capsules are micro thin they can be broken down in the stomach at 100°F in as little as two minutes. This provides access to the nutrients relatively quickly, allowing them to be absorbed through the stomach wall and later through the small intestine. Lastly, we have liquid deliveries. These are far less frequent simply due to the chemistry problem they create. Nutrients in a liquid form often can become highly reactive one with the other, and cause interactions and a breakdown of certain nutrients. Since water is the universal catalyst, it can accelerate chemical reactions 100 times faster than we might expect.

When assembling a liquid delivery system many factors must be taken into consideration. These include buffering, enteric coating, and insulation, and ratios, one nutrient to the other. When these factors are considered and implemented liquid delivery supplements can provide the maximum absorption in a minimum amount of time. These formulas can serve as healthy aging supplements, stress supplements, energy, and metabolism supplements, while being the best supplements for both men and women. Our full-spectrum formula not only addresses all of these concerns but also serves as the best vitamins for energy and likely the best liquid supplement available, since our current formulation includes over 136 nutrients to the living system of the human body. Check back next month for more information about Liquid Vitamins Absorb Better at any age.

Detoxing Your Liver

Your liver is responsible for the majority of detoxification and elimination of poisons internally. We often think of the colon as the organ that should be cleansed and detoxified, which is true however the bulk of the toxins are managed by your liver. A good liver detox along with a colon cleanse and even a full body cleanse at the cellular level, when done regularly, can produce many beneficial results. A toxic system can result in a sluggish metabolism, which can affect weight loss. A good body cleanse will boost metabolism while giving you the appearance of a healthy glow. The best detox cleanse will include a colon cleanse, liver cleanse, kidney cleanse, as well as addressing bladder integrity. Once a colon cleanse has been done the beneficial bacteria that resides there have a better environment to multiply successfully. This is important because not only are the beneficial bacteria important for digestion and elimination but it is with those organisms that a great deal of your immune system function also takes place. In May we will have more information about Liver Detoxing and make sure to listen to these amazing testimonials. Check out all of Dr Whiting’s Chronic Disease Special Reports.

Vitamin Supplements for Energy

The number one reason or complaint that most people have when they visit their doctor is that they don’t have enough energy and they always find themselves dragging through the day. This can occur at any age from 30 forward. There are many nutrients that can help enhance energy and metabolism. Nutritional supplements, or health supplements can help address and enhance our need for increased energy. Once again we want to be sure that the supplement that we choose provides all of the necessary nutrients involved in good energy supplements.

The B complex nutrients have long been associated with increased energy but this is not the only group of nutrients that should be considered. Many minerals are involved in the energy cycle, especially the electrolytes. Another group of nutrients involved in energy are the micro trace elements. The best source of these micro trace minerals would be from plant derived sources. Since our food supply is almost totally lacking in these micro trace elements, it is essential that they be part of a daily supplemental program. In May we will have more information about vitamins for energy and make sure to listen to these amazing testimonials. Check out all of Dr Whiting’s Chronic Disease Special Reports.

Broad Spectrum Formulas

Our recently reformulated full-spectrum formula in capsule form makes it one of the most broad spectrum formulas available. For this reason this high vitality formula can serve as excellent women’s vitamins, herbal vitamins, the best vitamins for energy, as well as the best vitamins for men. Vitamin supplements for energy would include the B complex especially vitamin B12. In order to achieve maximum absorption these formulas should contain plant trace minerals in desiccated form. These trace minerals have the ability to enhance the uptake of vitamins and other major minerals, making them much more bioavailable to the living system of the body.

In our high-tech society stress and anxiety are at an all-time high. Anxiety supplements and adrenal supplements are in great demand. Adrenal support supplements are essential because often in our high stress society our adrenal glands become fatigued and overproduce key hormones that produce further anxiety. Managing stress, anxiety, and adrenal fatigue can be done with the right combination of select key nutrients. Our formulas have proven to be both functional and very popular over the last decade.
