You are What you Eat!!

Sunday, November 14th, 2010

On Monday I read an article about a nutritionist who ate primarily junk-food, i.e. Twinkies®, powdered donuts, Dorito’s®, etc, for 10 weeks…AND LOST 27 POUNDS!!  The article can be found here: 

…Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!!! 

Whew, now that I have got that out of my system it is of vital importance that we dissect this little experiment before overweight and obese people start assuming that they actually had it right this whole time.  There are severalKansas State You are What you Eat!! important mitigating factors that need to be identified that I believe will crush the dreams of those that were about to stock up on every sugary, chemically infused snacks at their local grocery store.  

First and foremost the Kansas State University nutritionist who conducted this experiment, Professor Mark Haub started with the premise that the only thing that mattered when it came to weight loss was caloric intake.  In other words, regardless of what you eat, the amount of calories in the food you consume and not the source of those calories, will determine your weight.  I have always believed this to be a reasonable theory. 

twinkies You are What you Eat!!It is true that the professor dropped 27 pounds, his body fat dropped from 33.4 to 24.9 percent, and his body mass index went from 28.8, considered overweight, to 24.9, which is normal.  However, the professor made an implicit admission that vitamins, minerals, protein etc., are important for basic health as he also took a multivitamin pill and drank a protein shake daily.  In addition, he ate vegetables, typically a can of green beans or three to four celery stalks.  Essentially, the experiment was about weight loss, and most definitely NOT about health.  The professor recognized that losing weight does not equate necessarily to being healthy and that supplements were required to maintain some semblance of health.  This claim is reiterated and supported in a responsive article written by Chuck Norris.  Mr. Norris’ article can be found here: 

In a recent post I discussed the revelation that the toxins and impurities we have introduced into our water, food and air may be a primary contributing factor to the cancers that have become so common to the human race (you can read the post here:  If it is assumed that these impurities cause or at least contribute to illness then losing weight by eating junk-food will mean you may become a thin corpse.  With that though it mind, let’s take a look at some of the ingredients in the typical Twinkie® that the professor made a staple in his diet…

  • Sugar
  • Corn syrup 
  • High fructose corn syrup
  • Vegetable and/or animal shortening – containing one or more of partially hydrogenated soybean, cottonseed or canola oil, and beef fat.
  • Dextrose 
  • Modified corn starch
  • Cellulose gum
  • Leavenings (sodium acid pyrophosphate, baking soda, monocalcium phosphate)
  • Cornstarch
  • Corn syrup solids
  • Mono and diglycerides
  • Soy lecithin
  • Polysorbate 60
  • Dextrin
  • Calcium caseinate
  • Sodium stearol lactylate
  • Wheat gluten
  • Calcium sulphate
  • Natural and artificial flavours
  • Caramel colour
  • Sorbic acid (to retain freshness)
  • Colour added (yellow 5, red 40)

Yikes!!  .  I am assuming everyone knows where I am going here. 

Isagenix® systems, paks and products allow you to reduce caloric intake through the use of the Isagenix® IsaLean®buy isagenix products e1i91 You are What you Eat!! meal replacement shakes while offering a cellular cleanse in the form of the Isagenix® Cleanse for Life® Dietary Supplement to cleanse away the impurities we are exposed to.  This is a much healthier alternative to counting the calories in a package of Twinkies®.

The Looming Diabetes Disaster

Wednesday, October 27th, 2010

Sometimes it takes only a few words to have a major impact on a conversation, e.g. the health of the population of the United States.  I was struck by the brevity of a recent article from Reuters (Diabetes to Double or Triple in U.S. by 2050: Government,, October 22, 2010).  The title leapt off the page and said almost as much as the entire article.  The piece presented grim facts concerning the currentdiabetes type 2 another childhood disease The Looming Diabetes Disaster trends of health and diet in the United States.  If we continue down our current path of inactivity and poor eating habits it is predicted that the occurrence of Diabetes will escalate from its current level of approximately 1 in 10 adults to as high as 1 in 3 by 2050.  Considering the fact that both Tamara and I have a history of Diabetes in our family, this is one of the reasons we have made Isagenix® such a significant part of our lives and the lives of our children.  Diabetes is the gift that keeps on giving.  Once you have it, you have it for life.  In some instances it can be controlled, but it will not go away once you have it. 

I have heard it suggested that this is a problem only for those who choose to not take care of themselves.  In reality is a problem that will affect virtually every single American on a multitude of fronts.  First and foremost is the associated cost which was estimated at $174 billion dollars per year in 2007.  The cost in 2050 dollars when we assume the suggested progression of the disease is truly incomprehensible.  The costs will grow exponentially when lost labor, weight related injuries and workers compensation claims are factored in.  This is why Tamara and I speak so passionately about Isagenix® products whenever we are given the opportunity. 

dr richard carmona on the obesity epidemic webcastr The Looming Diabetes DisasterDr. Richard Carmona, the former Surgeon General suggested an even more frightening outcome to this growing national problem.  In a speech several years ago he described our poor health as one of the greatest threats to our national security calling it “…the terror within.”  He proposed that in years to come we will find it more and more difficult for us to defend ourselves from internal and external threats (  Essentially, where will we find our soldiers; our firefighters; our law enforcement officers when they can barely get off their couches?  We will be at the mercy of those countries that have seen the importance of good health and fitness.  I have been a law enforcement officer since 1987.  As I progress in age I have discovered the requirement that I maintain my fitness level with the help of Isagenix® for my sake and my families.    

Our general lack of effort in this area has prompted many extreme suggestions on how this crisis should be solved.  Most of these suggestions involve the government making the decisions on what is best for the American people.  There are recommendations on local, state and federal levels that government should determine what ingredients and how much of these ingredients should go into our food.  I understand the concern and the sense of urgency.  But I believe that a government making decisions about what is best for me and my family is never a good thing!  To avoid this potential tragedy it falls on all of us to start taking better care of our bodies.  Otherwise, we might find ourselves in a position where entities external to our immediate families are deciding what is “best” for us.   Other than on rare occasion my family does not drink soda.  Yet I do not want someone telling me we can’t. 

So what is the solution?  The answers are relatively simple.  Better nutrition, increased physical activity, and greater awareness of what goes into our bodies must become a priority to all of us.  Isagenix® products, paks and systems can play a major role in addressing the factors that can cause diabetes.  The Isagenix® IsaLean® Shake introduces highbuy isagenix products e1i91 The Looming Diabetes Disaster grade nutrition into your diet.  The Isagenix® Cleanse for Life® Nutritional Supplement helps you to cleanse away impurities that can impair body function.  If you cleanse the impurities from your engine, your engine functions the way that God intended.  Subsequently, you are capable of better processing the food you take in and get rid of the impurities you don’t.  There are a multitude of options for you to achieve your health, weight loss, and weight control goals to include the Isagenix® 30-Day Cleansing and Fat Burning System; the Isagenix® 9-Day Cleansing and Fat Burning System; or the Isagenix® Total Health and Wellness System

Cancer and Our Toxic Environment

Tuesday, October 19th, 2010

On October 15, 2010 the Daily Mail, an internet newspaper out of the United Kingdom, published an article entitled “Cancer ‘is purely man-made- say scientists after finding almost no trace of disease in Egyptian Mummies”.   TheDaily Mail logo Cancer and Our Toxic Environment article made the claim that after studying mummies and fossils and reviewing classical literature scientists came to the conclusion that until recent history cancer was an unusual and rare event.  The conclusion based upon this study was that cancer was caused by the “excesses of modern life”.    In other words, the toxins we have introduced into the environment and the resulting impurities introduced into our bodies from that environment have caused multiple cancers.  Even controlling for factors such as a shorter lifespan in ancient times has led scientists and researchers to the same conclusion.  We are responsible for the tumors and malignancies experienced by so many people today.  The mummy Cancer and Our Toxic Environmentfinal sentence of the article offered the most intriguing of assertions; “scientists now say a healthy diet, regular physical activity and maintaining a healthy weight can prevent about a third of the most common cancers”.  Mr. John Anderson, the “Mineral Man” and formulator of the many Isagenix® systems, products and paks should feel thoroughly vindicated. 

Isagenix® cannot and will not make any medical claims for their products, systems and paks; nor will I on the company’s behalf.  However, if the conclusions offered by this study are true, then it suggests that living a healthy lifestyle to include exercise, proper diet and weight control could potentially minimize or eliminate many of the catalysts for cancer.  If the study is accurate then Isagenix® weight loss programs to include the Isagenix® 9-Day Cleansing and Fat burning System and the Isagenix® 30-Day Cleansing and Fat Burning System may do more than simply help you to lose weight. Cleanse single bottle 200x2001 Cancer and Our Toxic Environment

Furthermore, if the conclusions of the study are assumed then the Isagenix® Cleanse for Life® dietary supplement may one day prove to have more value than simply cleansing unwanted impurities from the human body.  If you would like to find out more information on the Isagenix® weight loss systems or the Isagenix® Cleanse for Life® dietary supplement then you can contact us either through our website at or by calling Tamara toll free at 1-866-982-DIET (3438).

Weight Loss, KVOA News and the Blessings Conduit!

Friday, October 15th, 2010

This week KVOA News in Tucson knocked on our front door.  They were there to do a story on nutritionalkvoa Weight Loss, KVOA News and the Blessings Conduit! cleansing and replenishing and how Isagenix® had changed my family’s life.  KVOA, as they had done in recent years had begun a series of stories based upon the television reality show The Biggest Loser®.  They wanted to know different ways in which people were able to attain and maintain their health and weight loss goals.  We submitted Tamara’s story in the hopes that it would pique their interest as it had ours four years ago.  A week or so after the submission we received the call that we would be doing our story. 

They interviewed Tamara and our kids and wanted to know how the Isagenix® IsaLean® meal replacement Biggest Loser Tucson Weight Loss, KVOA News and the Blessings Conduit!shakes and Isagenix® Cleanse for Life® dietary supplement had been introduced to us and how these and the many other Isagenix® products continued to play a role in all of our lives.  They even asked us to mix a shake for them.  I was very proud of my family as they demonstrated confidence and boldness on camera.  The reporter was kind enough to discuss the talents of my children and allow them to demonstrate their athletic skills and interests.  Most important though was the story that Tamara was allowed to relay to Channel 4’s viewing audience.  She told them how four years ago she was supposed to be attending her high school reunion.  She told them how after having our children she struggled with weight loss.  She told them how she had tried everything she could think of to improve her fitness to include proper diet and a physical fitness regimen.  Yet none of these efforts seemed to make a significant difference until a friend introduced her toIsagenix®.  The rest, as they say, is history. You can view the story and watch the video by clicking on the link below.

The next day we were all able to view the story on KVOA’s 4:00 news and the KVOA web-site.  As the story unfolded before our eyes I was struck by how significant Isagenix® had become to my whole family.  I believe that my family has been blessed for a very long time.  I do not believe that Isagenix® is the cause of those blessings, but I do believe it is the conduit by which those blessings have been delivered to us. 

The night of the airing Tamara started receiving telephone calls and e-mails from others interested in the many Isagenix® systems, products and paks.  Today Tamara spent the bulk of her day answering phone calls from people wanting more information.  These callers recognized through Tamara’s words what nutritional cleansing and replenishing could do for them.  Ultimately, they wanted what we had and Tamara was excited to share it with them.  We want to share it with you as well!  Watch the video and try to visualize Isagenix® as the conduit for blessings in your life.

The Isagenix® Line of Products:Isagenix® Cleanse for Life™

Thursday, October 7th, 2010

Since Tamara and I began our Isagenix® journey 4 years ago I have become acutely aware of articles and information about health and nutrition.  As a result, I have made a recent observation that I believe to be significant to everyone reading this post.  More and more I am seeing articles on the concepts of “cleansing” and “detoxification”.  This simply means that everyone else is catching on to what Isagenix® users have known for years.  These words are important to me because they changed both Tamara’s life, as well as my own.  These terms are significant because they clarify the underlying purpose and intent of Isagenix® and their many wonderful products, but no more so than the Isagenix® Cleanse for Life™ nutritional supplement.  

main drew carey1 The Isagenix® Line of Products:Isagenix® Cleanse for Life™In a recent article in Parade Magazine (September 26, 2010), comedian Drew Carey discussed the process by which he was able to achieve significant weight loss.  One component of that process involved a two week “detoxification” period.  Mr. Carey’s diet was “restricted to lean proteins, lots of vegetables, limited fruit, few starches, vitamins and nutritional supplements, and at least 64 ounces of water a day.”  Mr. Carey’s comments about his diet prove points that I have made several times in the past.  Drew said the menu left him “wanting to chew [his] arm off”.  For most of the population such diets eventually fail for several reasons.  Ultimately, without a significant support system it is very difficult, if not impossible to remain dedicated to such a severe lifestyle change. 

I do not claim that you can continue to eat whatever you want and still maintain a healthy lifestyle, even with the helpWomens World Magazine The Isagenix® Line of Products:Isagenix® Cleanse for Life™ of Isagenix®.  There are some simple decisions that can be made to improve your chances for success when embarking on any weight loss/wellness regimen.  In the October 4, 2010 Woman’s World magazine the famous Dr. Oz came out in support of a 28-day diet that consisted of avoiding pre-packaged and processed foods.  I like this one as it is easy to implement.  

It is inevitable, however, that we will ingest or absorb the toxins, additives, preservatives and chemicals from our everyday environment.  These toxins affect the body’s ability to function the way that God intended it to.  This is where the Isagenix® Cleanse for Life™ nutritional supplement can help.  Everyday we’re exposed to toxins in the food we eat, the air we breathe, the water we drink and the items we touch.  Cleanse for Life™ helps give your body the nutrition it needs to cleanse itself naturally, and unlike other “cleanses”, laxatives or diuretics that can deplete your body, Cleanse for Life™ nourishes and feeds your entire body with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and botanicals.

Choco Shake Packet Canister 200x200 The Isagenix® Line of Products: Isagenix® IsaLean® ShakeThe Isagenix® IsaLean® meal replacement shake, available in either chocolate or vanilla, is one of the flagship products of the many Isagenix® systems and paks.  Isagenix® works because the shakes provide high grade nutrition while the Isagenix® Cleanse for Life® dietary supplement cleanses the body of harmful toxins.  

This is important information that helped me to make the decision to make Isagenix® products a part of my daily routine.  I do understand, however, that many of the readers of this blog may not have adequate information to make a similar decision.  For this reason I have decided that over the course of the next several weeks I will be making posts in order to introduce you to many of the amazing Isagenix® products.  Where I have spoken previously in generalities, I will now speak to you specifically on how these products are formulated, how they are used and finally, how each product can benefit you in your effort to achieve better health

I chose to write about the IsaLean® Shake first since it is the product by which most people recognize Isagenix®.  In addition, if Cleanse for Life® is the product that brings people to Isagenix®, then the IsaLean® meal replacement shake is what keeps them coming back.  

Here are some of the basic facts about this wonderful shake:

What About the Children?

Thursday, July 22nd, 2010

In a Houston Chronicle article from July 2, 2010 it is noted that more than two-thirds of Texas schoolchildrenHouston Chronicle What About the Children? failed the state’s physical fitness test this year.  This situation is probably more common than anyone would like to believe.  This is largely attributed to the fact that kids are not spending enough time exercising.  The common consensus is that children should do some kind of aerobic exercise for at least 60 minutes every day.  Considering the fact that school districts across the country have cut, or are in the process of cutting physical education classes this is getting more difficult for kids.  The onus has fallen on parents to ensure their kids are involved in some kind of physical activity or sport to meet their fitness needs. 

A lack of physical activity is not the only problem faced by children in the United States.  We are just not feeding our kids the way we should.  Here are some disturbing statistics:

  • The average child consumes at least 20 ounces of soda a day.Child Obesity 0 What About the Children?
  • Every year teenagers eat an average of 93 pounds of refined sugar.
  • 80% of high school students eat fewer than 5 servings of fruits and vegetables per day.
  • Nearly 1/3 of U.S. Children aged 4 to 19 eat fast food daily.
  • Childhood obesity rates have more than tripled since 1980.
  • Overweight adolescents have a 70% chance of becoming overweight or obese adults.
  • The International Obesity Task force estimates that 22 million of the world’s children under 5 are obese or overweight.

Here are several suggestions to increase the fitness level of the whole family:

  • Involve the kids in meal planning and grocery shopping.  Kids love to have a role in the decision eating together1 What About the Children?
  • Buy organic meats, fruits and vegetables whenever possible to avoid harmful pesticides, hormones, and antibiotics in your food.
  • Eat your meals as a family. 
  • Plan family activities that involve exercise.  Play tennis together or go for a hike. 
  • Keep healthy snacks in your pantry like fresh, organic fruits and vegetables, low-fat cheese, and fresh, purified water.  We are going through several cases of water a week and our kids have become accustomed to drinking it throughout the day.

There are some Isagenix products that are not appropriate for consumption by young children such as the Isagenix Ionix Supreme®, but there are many products that are safe and healthy for the whole family:

  • C-Lyte®—Advanced Vitamin C Protection
  • IsaOmega Supreme®—Supports heart health and brain development.
  • IsaCrunch®—Greater mental focus and clarity
  • Want More Energy?—High in B vitamins and minerals.  A natural electrolyte replacement. 
  • IsaPro®—Supports lean muscle mass.
  • IsaKids Essentials®—16 essential vitamins and minerals.

  • Slim Cakes®—Supports digestive health. 
  • Isamune®—Immune system enhancer.
  • Isagenix Greens®—High in antioxidants, phytonutrients, Vitamin E and three sources of Vitamin C.
  • Mars & Venus Super Minerals®—Calms mood, increases focus and clarity and supports brain health.
  • IsaWater®—Alkalizes water making it key for good health.
  • IsaLean Shake®—Superior amino acids, proprietary blend of Ionic Alfalfa and exclusive source of whey and casein protein. 
  • IsaLean Bars®—Premium undenatured whey protein which translates to complete nutrition for adults and kids.    

Don’t be Afraid of that 4th of July Barbecue

Saturday, July 3rd, 2010

American Flag Wall Art Dont be Afraid of that 4th of July BarbecueHow do I stick with my nutritional cleansing program over 4th of July weekend?  This is easier than you think. There is no reason you have to live in a bubble while using Isagenix. Enjoy the foods in moderation you would normally eat.

Here are some helpful eating tips:

  • Use lean protein on the grill and put your meat on a multi-grain bun or skip the bun altogether.  If you must sample the barbecue ribs limit them to 1 or 2.
  • Avoid mayonnaise based salads.  Instead eat a tossed salad with low calorie dressing.  If you can’t resist the pasta salad use whole grain pasta with an olive oil and vinegar dressing.tossed salad2 Dont be Afraid of that 4th of July Barbecue
  • Try filling up on raw vegetables & fruit.  Watermelon is a good choice this time of year.  It is low in calories and contains 90% water.
  • Baked beans are high in fiber but they are also contain a lot of sugar.  Limit your serving to 1 – 2 tbsp.
  • Eat baked chips instead of regular.
  • Drink plenty of water.
  • If you can’t live without your alcoholic beverage, choose low-calorie varieties and drink in moderation.
  • Exercise the mourning before to help speed up your metabolism.

Most of all enjoy!  One off day is not going to limit your success.  Besides, on Cleanse for Life 1024x814 Dont be Afraid of that 4th of July BarbecueMonday you can get back on track by doing a cleanse day. I like to think of my cleanse as my magic eraser.

Not Just for Weight Loss!

Friday, July 2nd, 2010

Tamara was fortunate enough to make the acquaintance of representatives athletes image tr Not Just for Weight Loss!from several health clubs in the area.  They, as most people are, were very impressed with her weight loss story and her ability to maintain her fitness level.  As a result, she has been invited on several occasions to set up tables in these gyms and provide presentations on Isagenix®.  This was very exciting news as we are always looking for new avenues to introduce ourselves and the many products we use. 

A friend of mine is a member at one of the gyms that has allowed Tamara to set up shop.  This friend is a regular Isagenix® user and has bought products from us to include the Isagenix 9-Day Cleansing and Fat Burning System®.  My friend is a true believer and does not hesitate to tell others about what we have to offer.  When I discovered that my friend uses this gym, I asked him to tell his workout partners about Tamara’s events.  He returned to me with some surprising information.  The patrons of this particular gym were not interested in weight loss; rather they wanted to know if Isagenix® offered products for athletes

Tamara and I have always focused our attention on the weight loss and maintenance aspects of Isagenix® because that is the reason we use them.  Our own success in this area blinded us to the original intent of the program and some of the additional benefits to using the products. 

It is helpful to note that the master formulator of Isagenix® is a man by theJohnAnderson Not Just for Weight Loss! name of John Anderson.  Mr. Anderson’s career prior to developing these products was as a chemist with some of the best known supplement companies in the world to include Met-Rx® and GNC®.  Mr. Anderson is commonly referred to as the “Mineral Man” in the industry and he has developed over 2,200 products for over 600 companies.  It should come as no surprise then that Mr. Anderson spent a great deal of his life inventing products for athletes.  It makes sense therefore, that Isagenix® has a great deal to offer people who take supplements for the purpose of improving their physical fitness and increasing lean muscle mass.  There are seven different reasons why athletes and fitness minded people should choose Isagenix®, and more specifically the Isagenix Athletes Pak® over similar products:

  1. Isagenix® boosts energy without harsh stimulants
  2. Isagenix® accelerates recovery*
  3. Isagenix® enhances mental activity*
  4. Isagenix® balances appetite
  5. Isagenix® protects cells
  6. Isagenix® improves immune function*
  7. Isagenix® is natural and “clean”

“So hungry I could eat a…”

Monday, June 28th, 2010

About a week ago my family and I went to Phoenix to celebrate Father’s Day broken glasses “So hungry I could eat a…”and the 20th anniversary of the day I married my beautiful wife.  While enjoying the pool a gentleman walked up and handed me my glasses…the glasses he stepped on…the mangled glasses that were bent and broken with the lens popped out.  I have been glassless ever since.

Today I was finally able to get in to see my eye doctor.  In the near future, I will get my new glasses and finally be able to read again!  While I was getting my eye exam I had the opportunity to tell the doctor and her staff the gospel of Isagenix®.  Several people expressed interest and amazement at my wife, Tamara’s before and after pictures.  My doctor made the comment that she was tired of starving herself just to maintain her current weight.  This statement reminded me of my own fitness journey when I first began using Isagenix® products. 

When I first realized that my weight had gone beyond what I could tolerate over three years ago, it was no longer a small problem for me.  My plan was to work out as often as possible, have salads and vegetables for lunch, and essentially starve myself.  This plan met with a modicum of initial success; however, I eventually hit the proverbial wall to my great frustration.  I was hungry all the time and this hunger did not seem to translate into greater weight loss.  Tamara eventually convinced me to give the Isagenix 30-Day30 day 1024x603 “So hungry I could eat a…” Cleansing and Fat Burning System® a chance.  I started to see the pounds melt away and was very excited about the potential for this fantastic program.  Several weeks later I again hit a wall and was not seeing the weight loss I had hoped for.  In desperation I contacted Dr. Becky Natrajan, a Gastroenterologist who happened to serve on the Isagenix® Scientific Advisory Board.  Her solution to my problem was simple.  I wasn’t eating enough, and as a result my body was saying “…hey, this guy isn’t feeding me anytime soon so I better store up some fat!”  Now I didn’t actually hear my body say this, and I am obviously invoking some poetic license to illustrate some points, yet the points are significant.

  • A starvation diet is never the solution to healthy weight loss
  • A significant change in eating habits is possible; however, it is usually unsustainable without enormous will-power and the assistance of medical professionals. 

The idea that a person will go from eating three milkshakes a day to only eating things that come from the ground just doesn’t happen overnight…if ever.  I liken this thought to the person who decides to get into shape by establishing a daily jogging regimen…when they despise jogging.  Such a fatjogging “So hungry I could eat a…”person may be able to reach their fitness goals, but those goals will most likely not be realized through running every day.  The same can be said about a change in diet.  Changes can be made, but in order for most people to see success, those changes must be reasonable and gradual.  The beauty of Isagenix® is that it provides the nutritional support necessary to make those changes over time. 

Tamara is a fantastic cook.  She has always striven to provide healthy and satisfying meals for her family.  I never believed that my poor fitness level was due to the food she cooked for me.  The problem was always that I ate too much of it.  Isagenix® helped to bring my body back into balance while slowly reducing the amount of food I needed to maintain a healthy lifestyle.  The Isagenix Total Health and Wellness System* now allows me to maintain the fitness level I have achieved.  The same potential exists for all my readers out there.
