“Hey, I think there is something sticking out of your nose!”

Friday, April 20th, 2012

Now, I am a reasonable man.  I believe that not every exercise regimen, diet or healthy fitness plan works for everyone on the planet.  Whatever tools an individual uses to control weight, maintain good health, and improve overall fitness, it “Hey, I think there is something sticking out of your nose!” needs to be something that can be easily maintained as an addition to a normal everyday lifestyle.  Generally, diets or weight control programs should not be based upon behaviors that drastically change the way you live your life.  Not that there isn’t some potential benefit to dropping all your old habits, the behavior change needs to be realistic so it can be maintained over time.  Deciding to eat nothing but salads may sound like a good idea, but are you really going to do that?  Sometimes, simple changes in eating habits can have a significant impact on your overall health.  Drastic measures, in my opinion, should be reserved for drastic circumstances…like you are going to die in the next 6 months if you don’t lose weight. 

With that said, it never ceases to amaze me when people engage in behaviors that may offer a short term solution to their problem, but at the same time it may kill them or make them sick at the same time.  The HCG Diet is a good example.  This particular diet confuses your body into thinking it is pregnant and subsequently induces a disease state that results in you losing weight.  If you don’t believe me then do the research for yourself. 

The most recent example of a diet that just sounds wrong on its face is the K-E Diet.  Essentially, a doctor inserts a feeding tube into your nose and down to your stomach.  The feeding tube provides a constant slow drip of protein and fat, mixed with water which contains zero carbohydrates and totals 800 calories a day…REALLY?!!  Am I the only one who thinks it is simply nuts to walk around with a feeding tube sticking out of your nose for the purpose of weight loss?  Yet the Yahoo news article is being used by “brides-to-be” to rapidly shed pounds. 

I will stick to my cleansing and replenishing program that eliminates impurities while providing high-grade nutrition to your body.  It just sounds saner.



How Committed are You to Weight Loss?

HCG How Committed are You to Weight Loss?Just last week I had a co-worker come into the office espousing the latest diet craze.  This particular plan involves injections or drops at a doctors office coupled with a 500 calorie per day diet (HCG Diet).  The co-worker was proudly showing off his new body and praising the program based upon his own success.  However, when he was quizzed on what would happen with his diet at the completion of the program the co-worker indicated there would have to be some modifications to change the way he ate…literally, he would have to change his lifestyle…to maintain his success.  I thought about telling him about Isagenix® but I decided to hold my tongue. 

I would venture to guess that virtually everyone that is reading this post has attempted to change their eating habits to facilitate weight loss at some point in their lives.  There have been times in my own life when I decided to eat nothing but fruits and vegetables for lunch (yeah, right!—that didn’t last long). 

There is a reason that the diet industry is as large as it is.  Authors keep generating books and the American publicMayo Clinic How Committed are You to Weight Loss? keeps buying them looking for the diet plan they can actually stick to for the rest of their lives.  Just go to any large bookstore like Barnes and Noble® or Borders® and walk down the nutrition aisle.  All it would take is for just a couple of those books to work (Adkins Diet, New York Diet, Mayo Clinic Diet, etc.) and virtually every other book on dieting would cease to exist.  Yet there are new diet books popping up every day.  I believe a diet book can affect your attitude, but it cannot alter your appetite or taste-buds.  

If you can’t stick with something for your whole life it is doomed to failure.  Eventually you will backslide into your old ways and the weight will come back.  What if someone told you the only way to get into excellent physical shape was to run…but you hated running.  You may be able to stay with the regimen for a while; however, your hatred of running would eventually overcome your desire to be in good shape.

buy isagenix products e1i91 How Committed are You to Weight Loss?Isagenix® offers an alternative I have not seen before.  It does not ask you to eat only grapefruits.  It simply offers a way to deal with the food you do eat so you can efficiently and effectively lose weight.  I am not saying you can eat a gallon of ice cream every day and melt off the pounds.  I will say though that my wife is an excellent cook.  She continues to make all the same food that she did when we were both much heavier.  I believe that the Isagenix®paks and systems (for example the Isagenix® 9-Day Cleansing and Fat Burning System; the Isagenix 30-Day Cleansing and Fat Burning  System; or the Isagenix® Total Health and Wellness System) can help you to achieve your health goals just like it did for us.
