While using SIZZLE RED each day as directed will help you drop those extra pounds and inches, incorporating our entire Weight Management Program, will provide many additional health benefits as well as helping you keep the weight you have lost off PERMANENTLY.

The health related benefits of getting rid of those excess pounds and inches you are currently carrying around, are far more important than just looking better.

Over the last few years, weight loss has been recognized as a key factor in the control and prevention of coronary heart disease, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, hyperlipidaemia (abnormally high levels of fats in the blood), cardiorespiratory failure and other chronic degenerative diseases.

It has been shown that even a modest loss of 5% of initial body weight can reduce, eliminate or prevent these disorders in a large proportion of overweight people.

Then, once you get to a 5% reduction, aim for 10%, as the clinically proven benefits of this additional decrease, just keeps getting better.

1) Decreased joint pain.
2) Decreased risk of certain cancers.
3) Decreased risk of diabetes.
4) Decreased risk of heart disease.
5) Decreased risk of stroke.
6) Decreased risk or improvement in symptoms of osteoarthritis.
7) Decreased risk or improvement in symptoms of sleep apnea.
8) Improved blood sugar levels.
9) Improved cholesterol levels.
10) Improved mobility.
11) Lowered blood pressure.
12) Reduced back pain.
13) increased energy levels.
14) improved breathing

Whatever Your Weight Loss Goal is, it is Achievable!

Here are four Weight Management tips that can really boost your weight loss efforts.

Do not start any of the “Fad of the Week” Starvation Diets. They are totally useless for long term weight management.

Instead of trying to lose weight by starving yourself,  learn how much easier, more effective and healthier, simply modifying your existing dietary habits could be for you.

Do not waste your money on any of the ridiculously expensive “Diet Food” meal delivery service ads you see on TV every 10 minutes.

It seems that every time we turn on the TV, we get bombarded with actors telling us that all we need to do to lose 60 pounds next month, is order whatever they are selling.

Seriously, why spend over $100.00 a week for a delivery of overpriced processed food, when you can easily prepare a much healthier selection yourself, for less than $40.00.

Do not waste your money on any of the expensive “Meal Replacement” shakes, that cost anywhere from $55.00 to $200.00 each month.

Instead consider using one of the many inexpensive, good quality Plant Based protein products that are available for less than $25.00 and make your own shake each morning.

If you start your day with a nutritious shake, instead of a sugar laden breakfast cereal, you are going to be amazed at just how quickly you will experience the benefits. BTW: One of the absolute worst sugary cereals is Kellogg’s Honey Smacks, as each 36g serving has only 2g of fiber and 18g of added sugar. To put it bluntly, these garbage “added sugar products” are specifically marketed to our children, as the manufactures want kids addicted to sugar at an early age as possible. This is why about 22% of kids aged 2 – 19 are classified not as just overweight, they are actually OBESE.

Drink water, LOTS of water throughout each day. Basically you need to consume 1oz of water for each 2 pounds of your body weight each day. I.E. if you weight 200 pounds, then drinking 100 ounces of water daily will produce incredibly beneficial results quickly for four main reasons. NOTE: If you are working outside on a hot day, upping your water consumption by an additional 50% is highly recommended.

1) Water is a natural appetite suppressant. Water takes up space in the stomach, leading to a feeling of fullness and reducing hunger. If you take SIZZLE RED with 12oz- 16oz of water, 30 minutes before eating, you are going to be amazed at how much your appetite is decreased.

2) Water increases calorie burning. Actually drinking cold water may further enhance water’s calorie-burning benefits, because the body expends energy, or calories, by heating up the water for digestion.

3) Water helps to remove waste from the body. Waste removal is critical, as when waste builds up in the body people may feel bloated, swollen, and tired. Bloating can add inches to a person’s waist. If you are optimally hydrated, however, all this waste is expelled from the body.

4) Water is necessary to burn fat. Without water, the body cannot properly metabolize stored fat or carbohydrates. Drinking enough water is essential for burning off your stored fat and the fat contained in the food and drink you consume each day as well.

There have actually been quite a few “Drink More Water” studies done recently, with promising results. In one study, middle-aged overweight and obese participants who drank water before each meal lost 44% more weight, compared to a group that did not drink more water.

HOW MODIFYING YOUR DIET CAN REALLY MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

There are three simple modifications you can make to your diet, that not only help you lose weight, they can also dramatically improve your overall levels of health and wellbeing.  

 1) Cut your “Added Sugar” consumption.

Seriously, not only is consuming Added Sugars one of the greatest enemies to achieving your weight management goals, they are also detrimental to your overall levels of health, wellbeing and longevity.

While we could literally write a book on this subject, here are just a few of the pertinent facts.

Added sugars are not the natural sugar found in Milk, Fruits and Vegetables. They are additional sugars and syrups, that are added to processed foods as they’re manufactured. These ingredients are added to make these food-like substances taste good — VERY good. This great taste is not an accident, as they are specifically formulated to trick your brain into overeating them.

The problem is that while the taste is great, they do not give your body any of the nutrients it needs to thrive, as they are full of what are known as EMPTY CALORIES. BTW” “Empty” literally means “containing nothing” and when it comes to food, empty means that that food contains little or no essential vitamins or minerals. In other words, these junk food additives, provide absolutely nothing of value to your body beyond useless calories that over time, create more and more weight gain.

As an example, just 2 tablespoons (30 ml) of the common sweetener corn syrup contains 120 calories — exclusively from carbs.

Putting 2 teaspoons of sugar in your morning coffee loads you up with another 40 calories. (Using calorie free Stevia instead is a great idea).

Another example is Fructose. Eating too much of a type of sugar called fructose — can significantly increase levels of the hunger-promoting hormone ghrelin while decreasing levels of the appetite-suppressing hormone peptide.

In simple English, a high-sugar diet can cause you to gain weight in a lot of different ways. It is full of empty calories that offer no nutritional value, causes your body to create extra fat, and tricks your brain into craving more of it.

The ABSOLUTE WORST Added Sugar products are “Sodas”. As an example a 12 oz can of Coke contains 39g (NINE teaspoons) of sugar and 140 totally useless empty calories.

Mountain Dew is even worse, as a 20oz bottle has 77g of sugar (SEVENTEEN teaspoons) in it. To put that in perspective, if you drink just ONE BOTTLE a day of it, you are actually dumping an extra FIVE POUNDS of totally unneeded added sugar into your body each month. Care to guess what most of it gets converted into?

Also, as Coke has a ph level of 2.7 (Mountain Dew is 3.3), it is highly acidic and contributes to a condition known as excess body acidity. This condition weakens all body systems as excess acidity forces the body to borrow minerals including calcium, sodium, potassium and magnesium from vital organs, bones and teeth to buffer (neutralize) the acid and safely remove it from the body.

When our body is too acidic, we suffer from a condition known as Insulin Sensitivity. This forces excessive insulin to be produced. As a result, the body is flooded with so much insulin that it diligently converts every calorie into fat. Having an acidic pH long term, often results in the development of serious health problems, such as high blood pressure, diabetes and obesity.

BTW: Sodas are not totally useless though, as they do have some really good uses as inexpensive, industrial strength cleaners. Removing bloodstains from clothes, cleaning grimy coins, cleaning you car battery terminals, getting gum out of your hair, getting paint off metal surfaces, cleaning oil stains from your garage floor and cleaning water stains from your toilet, are just a few of them.

Oh and for anyone who thinks that “Diet Sodas” are better for you, they are actually far WORSE. This is because when you drink them, the artificial sweeteners they contain, send a signal to your pancreas to begin producing unneeded insulin. Insulin is what tells our cells to either use sugar as food or store it as fat. When your pancreas produces insulin to deal with anticipated sugar, but then no sugar arrives, it confuses your body and disrupts its metabolic process. This may explain why several studies have shown a link between regularly drinking diet soda and metabolic syndrome, a collection of symptoms that includes larger waist circumference (from the stored fat), higher blood pressure, and higher blood sugar.

In simple English, anything you can to to decrease the acidity and increase the alkalinity of your body, will provide you with all sorts of beneficial results.

One of the reasons we recommend using our PURE FULVIC – HUMIC ACID MINERAL BLEND as part of our Weight Management Pack, is that it really helps removing built up acidic poisonous toxins and the bad bacteria in the gut, from the body. BTW: Don’t be fooled by the name. While Pure Fulvic and Humic Minerals, like vitamin C, are slightly acidic in nature, they actually have a significant alkalizing effect on the body.

Consuming junk foods with lots of added sugars actually keep you hungry. If you keep eating foods that contain lots of added sugar in them instead of actual nutrients, your body gets hungry a lot sooner than if you had eaten a balanced nutritious meal. People who drink pop all day, or eat candy do so because the body is looking for nutrition and it’s not receiving it, so it stays hungry. As a result, you wind up eating way to many empty calories every day and packing on more and more pounds and inches.

BTW: An estimated 75% of the population don’t just like sugar, they were actually addicted to it as children. Although it may seem like a strange concept, sugar addiction is a very real problem and is similar to addictions to substances such as drugs or alcohol. When foods that contain sugar are consumed, dopamine is released in the system, which is responsible for “feel good” sensations.

For a perfect example of just how quickly the “feel good” effect of sugar reaches the brain, go to YouTube and search for the “Baby Tries Ice Cream For First Time” video.

This is why that two of the ingredients we include in SIZZLE RED are known to help break sugar addiction. If you do not yet realize how much of a problem breaking that addiction can be, the results of one study in PubMed sum it up perfectly. “Available evidence in humans shows that sugar and sweetness can induce reward and cravings that are comparable in magnitude to those induced by addictive drugs, like cocaine.”

2) Increase the “Nutrient Density” of the foods you eat. If you are unfamiliar with the term, nutrient density is simply the number of nutrients per calorie in a food. One weight-loss secret is simple: If you want to lose fat, you need to control your appetite by finding a way to get more nutrients from each calorie of food you consume.

Nutrient-dense foods are low in sugar, sodium, starches, and bad fats. They contain both more vitamins and minerals and fewer calories. Your body needs vitamins and minerals, known as micronutrients. They nourish your body and help keep you healthy. They can reduce your risk for many chronic diseases.

Try to eat a variety of foods to obtain different vitamins and minerals. Foods that naturally are nutrient-rich include fruits and vegetables. Lean meats, fish, whole grains, dairy, legumes, nuts, and seeds also are high in nutrients.

3) Choose the between meal or late night snacks you eat carefully, very carefully.

Eating a lot of processed junk food snacks is a very fast way to pack on extra pounds. Snacking on chips, ice cream, sugary sodas, donuts, pastries, puddings, pretzels, microwave popcorn and candy will add pounds.

As an example, lets look at all the calories present in just one perfect, junk snack food example – an 8oz bag of “LAY’S® Classic Potato Chips”. The Nutrition Facts panel for this product tells you that One 28g serving contains 160 calories, 10g Fat and 15g of Carbs. So you sit down on your couch and munch your way through the bag before going to bed and your body then has to deal with those 160 extra empty calories you just fed it.

The REAL PROBLEM with that scenario, however, is that you do not realize that unless you have read all of the small print on the Nutrition Facts panel very carefully, you have no idea that ONE SERVING is ONLY 15 chips. So, that 8oz bag you just ate, contains not one, but EIGHT SERVINGS. Congratulations, you have just stuffed an extra 1,280 Empty Calories, 80g of Fat and 140g of Carbs into your body.

As an alternative to these junk foods snacks, replacing them with fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, jerky or a good trail mix will both fill you up a lot quicker and be MUCH more healthier for you.

BTW: Most overweight people do not realize that “Snacking”, particularly at night on “Comfort Food”, is a habit primarily caused by Stress. Two of the best ways to eliminate this habit is to use Adaptogens to reduce your stress levels and also simply drink a glass of water whenever you feel like snacking on something.

Two of the reasons we recommend using our ADAPTOGENS product as part of our Weight Management Pack, is that the large doses of Vitamins, particularly the B Group Vitamins really helps boost natural energy levels and the adaptogenic ingredients can significantly decrease overall stress levels as well. Both of these features can help accelerate weight loss. 

BTW: If you really need a snack before going to bed at night, try eating some Cherries, Tomatoes, Pomegranate, Olives, Grapes, Cucumber, Pistachios or Almonds, as they are all nutritious and the Melatonin they contain, may help with your sleep.

NOTE: For those wondering why “Processed Cheese” is on the list to avoid and real cheese is on the eat more of list, here is the reason.

Processed Cheese is not actually cheese. It is an artifical, chemical laden product that is manufactured from some cheese, chemical emulsifiers (two insoluble liquids), sodium citrate, calcium phosphate, sorbic acid (preservative), cheese culture, milk fat, extra salt, saturated vegetable oils, whey and artificial food colorings.

Real cheese is made from raw, unpasteurized milk, and is full of healthy saturated fats, great flavor and wholesome nutrition. Unfortunately, many of the cheeses sold in grocery stores and used in restaurants today are not real, raw cheeses, due to the cost of producing real cheese.
