Friendships, Relationships and Weight Loss

Monday, November 8th, 2010

Harvard University researchers have predicted that within the next 40 years Americans will hit a 42% obesity rate (http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE6A35SO20101104).  I know I know…It seems that every time I sit down to write at my computer lately, I end up being the bearer of bad news.  Unfortunately, there is a lot of bad newsHarvard logo Friendships, Relationships and Weight Loss to report when it comes to the health and fitness of United States citizens.  I will make a note to write a more positive offering in my next post.  We still must address these recent findings.  In a past blog I noted that we, as Americans have become much more accepting of excessive weight and obesity simply because it has become so prevalent.  It is infinitely more difficult to critique someone else’s problems when you share that same problem.  As my favorite book so profoundly states, “”Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?”  Too many people are carrying around that plank.   

I attend various Bible studies and church groups throughout the year.  I do this to accomplish several ends.  First, I am an information junkie.  I never want to be caught with my pants down unable to address a challenge or question; especially when it comes to questions of my faith.  I know I will never know it all; however, the more information I have the better position I am in to defend that which is most important to me; the health of my family and friends fall into a similar category.     

The second reason I find myself at church so often is due to a desire for full accountability.  I do not mean that I wish to Obesity Friendships, Relationships and Weight Losshold others accountable; rather, I wish to surround myself with people who will hold me accountable and let me know when I am not living the life I wish for…a life of character and strength.  So what does this all have to do with effective weight loss, effective weight control and fitness?  The very first line of the article states, “Americans will keep growing fatter until 42% of the nation is considered obese, and having fat friends is part of the problem…”  

Essentially, the researchers determined that your friends are a reflection of you and visa versa.  If you hang out with people that drink too much then you need to ask yourself if you drink too much as well.  Likewise, if your friends are obese then eating may become an issue in your life.  Maybe it is already.  It is very hard, if not impossible for an alcoholic to stay clear of his/her demon if all their friends meet at a bar.  The same is true for you if you have difficulties with your weight and all of your friends meet at the desert bar.  

Because our national weight problem is getting worse, things will become exponentially more difficult for people with weight challenges.  There are fewer people out there that take their weight seriously, so the relational support systems are disappearing.  The study showed that “…an American adult has a 2% chance of becoming obese in any given year, and each obese social contact increases the risk of becoming obese by .5% per year.  

So what is the solution?  The first step is to find a weight loss and fitness program that you can do like Isagenix®.  The 30-Day Cleansing and Fat Burning System or the 9-Day Cleansing and Fat Burning System may be thethe biggest loser Friendships, Relationships and Weight Loss path to a thinner you.  It certainly was for Tamara and me.  However, if your friends and family are constantly challenging your efforts by offering you candy, chips and soda then that path will be filled with landmines that may undermine your success.  

Therefore, the second step is to make a choice.  Either extricate yourself from that social circle (this is very difficult I know), or decide to be the example.  Tell your friends or family that you are seeking their support or organize a “Biggest Loser” contest.  See Tamara’s Biggest Loser story here…

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, http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE69L21Y20101022, 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 (http://www.webcastr.com/videos/informational/dr-richard-carmona-dropout-to-surgeon-general.html).  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 http://www.cleansebenefits.com or by calling Tamara toll free at 1-866-982-DIET (3438).

How Committed are You to Weight Loss?

Tuesday, September 28th, 2010

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.

Changing Lives with Isagenix®!

Friday, August 27th, 2010

Isagenix Celebration 2010 Changing Lives with Isagenix®!My wife and I attended the Isagenix® Celebration in San Diego this weekend.  It was my first opportunity to spend time with that many committed and passionate Isagenix® Associates!  My wife has attended the conference several times in the past and I now understand the metamorphosis in attitude that occurs whenever she returns.  I found the whole experience to be nothing less than revelatory.  In a future blog post I will tell everyone about the earth shattering news we all received that could change the lives of virtually everyone on the planet! 

The weekend was filled with a sense of anticipation for the future.  Everyone present could feel the positive energy thatIMAG0090 Changing Lives with Isagenix®! flowed through the room.  It was as if a group of 5000 people had become family for four days.  The most fascinating and compelling aspect of the convention for me was the way people responded to the speakers on stage.  Because of my Christian beliefs and my families close ties to church I have been witness to some enthusiastic preachers and exhilarating sermons.  I liken the experiences of these four days to those sermons.  There were people jumping from their seats, and yelling responses back to the stage.  Several of the speakers including the famous Les Brown had obvious biblical beliefs and injected proof of this into their presentations.  When the bible was quoted there were responses of “Amen” and “Praise Jesus”!  It was truly an amazing spectacle to witness and made me feel good about my connection to Isagenix®. 

I began to question what it was that evoked such passion and excitement.  I believe I have unraveled the secret and would like to share it with you.  There are many motivations for entering into a relationship with the company.  Many are looking for a solution to their weight loss problems by using the Isagenix 9-Day or 30-Day Cleansing and Fat Burning System®.  Many are attracted to the life changing potential of the referral and compensation plan.  Its ability to create a residual income translates into total financial freedom for many people.  Many are seeking the health benefits associated with the Isagenix Total Health and Wellness System®.  I believe, however, that this weekend revealed the true nature of people’s love of the company and its many products and paks. 

palms clock Changing Lives with Isagenix®!Isagenix® offers time.  Many people seek to lose weight out of a desire to improve their appearance.  I do not judge this motivation as I believe that taking care of yourself and dressing well says something about you to employers and the rest of the world.  Everyone would like to look good but not everyone puts appearance before a love of food.  I think that people who are truly successful with the company have a much deeper mission whether that mission is apparent to them or not.  Ultimately, I believe we seek better health and fitness because we wish to live longer.  Furthermore, we want our quality of life while we are living to be the best we can make it.  That is ultimately what Isagenix® can offer.  It offers a better chance that you will get to play with your grand-kids and great grand-kids.  It offers you the chance that you may get more time to do something of great importance with your life.  I do not make the claim that Isagenix® is the fountain of youth.  But I do assert that paying more attention to your health and making the right decisions about what goes into your body can make a difference in how long your are here. Isagenix can help!

“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.

Weight Loss: Mars VS Venus

Friday, June 18th, 2010

christina aguilera cosmopolitan 3833301 Weight Loss:  Mars VS VenusI have a female employee who constantly complains about her figure.  No…she isn’t overweight; rather she has the problem that most every other woman on the planet would love to have.  She can’t put on weight to save her life.  Her dissatisfaction is to the bewilderment of most everyone else at work as she is in great physical condition and obviously eats a healthy diet.  She suffers from an ailment shared by many women.  Regardless of whether they see themselves as being overweight or underweight, women rarely see themselves as meeting the standards imposed by society through our magazines, movies and television shows.  Considering that most women would like to lose weight (apparently much more so than men) God has played the cruelest trick of all. There are actually physiological reasons why women have a harder time losing weight than men. 

  • We men have more muscle than women do which allows us to burn more calories…even when we are sitting on the couch watching football. 
  • Women are predisposed to store and retain fat because of their higher levels of estrogen.  A condition that makes it easier for a woman to get pregnant (women actually burn 16% fewer calories everyday than men do).   
  • We men respond more quickly to exercise.
  • Women have a much lower tolerance for exercise due to a smaller lung capacity.
  • A man’s metabolism can be five times faster than a woman of similar height and weight. 

Furthermore, once we men begin to pay attention to food choices and start a workout regimen we tend to get quick results.  Sorry women…

But do not give up hope.  My intention is not to dissuade you (or the men outbefore after Weight Loss:  Mars VS Venus there) from reaching your fitness goals.  Help is available in the form of Isagenix®.  Tamara and I are a living testament to that fact.  The disadvantages women have related to their weight loss efforts can be overcome if you have the right tools and take the appropriate steps.  Some suggestions that can help:

  • First and foremost, find an Isagenix program that works for you.  Whether it is 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, there is a system that can assist you in reaching the level of fitness you desire. 
  • Establish a physical fitness regimen that works for you.  Find something that you enjoy doing like swimming, yoga, weight lifting, etc.  Any increase in muscle mass will help you to burn more calories over time.swimmer girl Weight Loss:  Mars VS Venus

 

  • Don’t always be the one to prepare meals.  Eliminate the extra temptation to nibble, taste and eat more calories while you are preparing dinner. 
  • Finally, change your perspective.  Men don’t pay as much attention to fluctuations in weight as women do.  Women have a tendency to allow a slight increase in weight to affect their mood.  Remember that your body will increase and decrease several pounds over the course of a day.  Getting depressed or upset about these minor changes in your body is not helpful and very well may de-motivate you.  Stay focused on the bigger picture. 

Whether you are a man or a woman, remember that overall fitness is less about numbers and more about changes in behavior.  If you change your behavior, then the weight loss will come.

Procrastination

Tuesday, June 8th, 2010

I can’t tell you the number of people I have met in my life that have vowed to start a new diet, or a new fitness regimen, or affect a lifestyle change…tomorrow!  The people I am referring to are usually adamant about changing their lives, whether their plan is to lose weight, quit smoking or take advantage of an exciting opportunity.   Yet their plans are quite often flawed because they promise to affect this change next week-end, following the holidays or after the new-year.  Such plans are doomed to failure as such delays are indicative of a lack of commitment.  How can one succeed when the most solid aspect of a plan refers to the delay of its implementation?  Furthermore, if delay is a major component of any success equation that component is open for negotiation (and further delay). 

Victor Kiam ProcrastinationAs business entrepreneur Victor Kiam (One-time President of Remington and owner of the New England Patriots) once said, “Procrastination is opportunities assassin.”  Since establishing our relationship with Isagenix® we have worked to maintain a “Carpe Diem” (Seize the day) mentality which has served us well in all aspects of our lives.    

When Tamara was first introduced to Isagenix® by a friend she was a fewTotal Health and Wellness 1024x642 Procrastination weeks away from her 25th year high school reunion…and utterly dissatisfied with her appearance.  Tamara had suffered from years of dieting failure and was eager for a success.  Instead of waiting until she returned Tamara immediately started an Isagenix 9-Day Cleansing and Fat-Burning System™.  This decision changed not only her life, but the life of her whole family.  Her almost immediate positive results prompted her to move on to the Isagenix 30-Day Cleansing and Fat-Burning System™ and then on to the Isagenix Total Health and Wellness System™. 

I must admit that I was initially skeptical and told Tamara that I would try the program only when I saw both a substantial and long lasting physical and financial benefit.  It was my lack of initial support that served to slightly delay our ultimate financial successand the new-found health that we have realized with Isagenix®.  I will never make that mistake again!! 

benjamin franklin ProcrastinationIsagenix® offers systems to meet every need and fit every goal.  Whether you are struggling with your weight and use the Isagenix 30-Day Cleansing and Fat Burning System™, or you are a world class athlete and use the Isagenix Athletes Pak™, a healthy lifestyle is within your grasp.  Furthermore, with a referral and compensation plan that rivals any network marketing company in the business, the Isagenix Independent Associate has the ability to achieve financial independence.

As Benjamin Franklin once said, “You may delay, but time will not.”  Make your plans for success and implement them starting today.  Isagenix® very well may be the catalyst that brings you whatever success you desire.

Never Give Up!

Wednesday, May 12th, 2010

the apostle paul in the storm 721x1024 Never Give Up!This past Sunday my pastor gave a sermon based upon Acts 27.  In this chapter of the Bible, Paul the Disciple is a prisoner on a ship facing a major storm.  The storm went on for days with no sign of relief.  The crew threw cargo overboard to include the tackle they would need to catch food just to lighten the load and make survival more likely.  In the end, the crew gave up all hope and assumed that disaster and death was inevitable.  Despite these circumstances Paul, our prisoner, continued to maintain high spirits.  Furthermore, he attempted to raise the spirits of the others on board the ship.  He told them to have courage and that they would survive despite major hardship in their near future. 

What does this have to do with improving health and shedding unwantedoverweight 332420 Never Give Up! pounds?  Many people faced with the prospect of losing weight have already been there and done that.  They have seen the future…and it isn’t pretty.  Many have given up all hope and assumed they lack the willpower or strength to reach their fitness goals based upon past experience with other programs.  They have fought the battles and despite some minor victories ended up losing the war with their weight.  Even when they are offered a lifeboat they assume that they will still drown in their poor health. 

9 Day 1024x641 Never Give Up!My message today is to keep your spirits high.  If all other health, wellness and weight loss programs have failed you Isagenix may be your answer.  It certainly was the answer for me and my wife.  Do not despair and do not give up hope.  You have the capacity to join the ranks of people who have experienced great success with an Isagenix 9-Day Cleansing and Fat Burning System, a 30-Day Cleansing and Fat Burning System, or an Isagenix Total Health and Wellness SystemIsagenix offers a program that conforms to your lifestyle, weight loss goals and fitness needs.    

Just because you have failed to be successful with other programs, or back-slid in the past, this does not mean that Isagenix can’t help you.  With all my heart, I believe it can!!  Thomas Edison was once asked about his repeated failures when he was working on his light bulb filament idea.  Undeterred, Edison responded that he had not failed.  Rather, Edison stated, “We now know a thousand ways not to build a light bulb”.  You may have discovered many ways to not improve your health and change your life.  Now it is time to discover how to make it work with Isagenix!  Remember…to get something you never had, you have to do something you never did!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you, John Anderson!!

Thursday, May 6th, 2010

I married my wife, Tamara 20 years ago this coming month.  To help her remember that day I had our wedding tape converted onto DVD and we watched it tonight with our kids.  It was great fun to look at ourselves and what great shape we were in back then.  I have always thought she was beautiful, and the day I married her was one of my happiest. 

She has always been very health conscious and concerned about her physical fitness.  I have, for the most part, relinquished the responsibility for healthy eating and nutrition to her and she makes the majority of the food choices in the house…especially when it comes to our kids. Wedding weight Isagenix 2 Thank you, John Anderson!!

After having our kids, and despite her best efforts, Tamara began to gain weight.   She tried several diets and was on a consistent fitness regimen.  The unwanted weight gain was beginning to affect her attitude and outlook.  I regularly reminded her that I loved her and found her attractive regardless of her dress size.  I also told her that the only time I would ever say anything about her weight was if I felt it was beginning to adversely affect her health.  That day was approaching, but I knew that saying something would only make things worse.  I decided to keep my mouth shut because I realized Tamara was working hard to find a solution to her own weight problem.

When Tamara came to me with Isagenix® I had little faith that this program was different than any other “diets”.  I tried to remain positive and encourage her, but I was also concerned about yet another plan failing her.  When the Isagenix 9-Day Cleansing and Fat Burning System™ resulted in astounding success in a short period of time, even I was having a hard time remaining skeptical.  Tamara then moved on to the Isagenix 30-Day Cleansing and Fat Burning Syste30 day 1024x603 Thank you, John Anderson!!m™ and in a few short months returned to her marriage weight and fitness level.  She could again fit into her wedding dress!

Most “diets” offer little support after the weight is gone.  Therefore, I thought that Tamara might end up back at square one looking for another solution to yet another weight gain.  Tamara then introduced me to the Isagenix Total Health and Wellness System™.  With the support of this maintenance program Tamara has been able to maintain her health and in the process made a full-fledged Isagenix believer out of me.  We are now an Isagenix® family!JohnAnderson Thank you, John Anderson!!

Isagenix® was invented by John Anderson, a Chemist who has worked for supplement companies such as GNC® and MetRx®.  Mr. Anderson has over 600 patents related to the health and wellness field to his name.  To me the most important thing John Anderson has ever done, however, is help to improve the health of my family.  If John Anderson were standing in front of me now, I would introduce myself and say “Thank you, John Anderson!!
