Trying To Lose Weight? Pills And Shakes Are Not Enough!

Posted Aug 23 2008 3:09pm
As most of you who read this know, there probably isn't a pill, shake or diet that I have not tried in my lifetime. A little weight obsessed- mmmhmmmm . I really don't remember a time when I was not on a diet or trying something (the strange thing is that I have never been overweight or even close-I obviously have issues here). When I was younger my health was never thought of as long as I could be thin, thin, thin. Nowadays, I consider my health first and weight last (okay 50-50, I am still obsessed) but my health is my priority.

That is why I love this program for healthy eating and weight loss by two people that I have met, trust and admire- Kim Klaver and Dr. Heidi Dulay . I think if I ever have another baby and need to lose the weight I will go with this Extreme Regime weight loss plan they have. Their weight loss plan works, is healthy, leaves you full and is affordable. Anyway, here is another great tip on what works and what does not work in the battle of the bulge from two of my most trusted health gurus!

Pills and shakes are not enough

By-the infamous Kim Klaver

If you're trying to lose weight and get your health back, pills and shakes are not enough.

How else can we explain why most Americans are so overweight? Including many folks selling health and weight loss supplements.

Pills and shakes have a place. Just not first place .

According to nutrition professor Dr. Heidi , to lose the weight and get your health back, there are five ordered strategies. From the most natural to the least:

1st . Optimize your daily food plan. Ask: what am I eating and how can I make it better? Get as close as possible to a real food plan (not calorie counting, starving, industrial food or rabbit food).

2 nd . Amp up your food plan where necessary. Add super foods e.g. green powders, cod liver and coconut oil, herbs, Pops , etc.

3rd . If symptoms persist after a month of doing 1 and 2 above, or if your doctor prescribes it, add nutraceuticals e.g. Vitamin B, alpha lipoic acid, L- carnitine , CoQ 10, L- glutamine , etc.

4 th . If symptoms still persist, add pharmaceuticals your doctor recommends. Many do this strategy together with nutraceuticals .

5 th . Last resort: surgery. E.g., stomach stapling ( Bariatric surgery), etc.

If you had to choose between #5 and #1, would you consider an optimal ER daily food plan first? For four weeks? And THEN decide re #5?

What do you think?
