Why You’re Not Losing Those Last 5 lbs!
Fad diets or diet pills sound tempting but they do not lead to real WEIGHT LOSS. At best, they lead to rapid water loss (not fat). At worst, they lead to increased weight gain, a slow metabolism, depression and obesity. Diet products use aspartame so that they can claim that these are good to help you lose weight. The exact opposite is true. When you are eating or drinking diet products using aspartame you are almost assured to gain weight. The sweet taste in your mouth sends a signal to the brain that sugar is coming. The brain in turns tells the liver to stop converting fat to sugar for energy, because fresh sugar is coming. When glucose( sugar) does not show up – the brain sends out the message that it needs sugar to keep functioning. That signal gets interpreted as hunger and off you go to find something to eat. “Diet” products also contain formaldehyde, which stores in the fat cells, particularly in the hips and thighs. This is why people who drink a lot of diet sodas have bigger hips and thighs. Even worse, this is a big reason why the American population is turning obese and/or suffering from cancers and diabetes.
When you drink one 12 oz can of soda you have to drink 12 – 10 ounce glasses of water to neutralize the acidic effects of that soda in your body. When cells don’t get enough of oxygen they need to create energy, they ferment blood sugar ( glucose) for energy instead, and that creates acidity – pH level of the body….At an Alkaline ph balance slightly above 7.6 cancer cells stop growing and replicating. At pH 8.5 cancer cells die.
I recommend incorporating tea into your diet to help with weight loss. Tea contains caffeine, flavanols, polyphenols, vitamins and other substances that promote fat oxidation, which helps remove excess body fat, therefore, the more you drink tea the slimmer you get!
KONI Simply Slim and KONI Slimming Goddess– Polyphenols found in Black and Oolong tea work as a fat destroying enzyme. The compound helps destroy fat and boost your metabolism. The polyphenols also help defy aging by battling free radicals – unstable forms of oxygen that damage cell function. In 2006, new research at the Northwestern University Bio Med Department, scientific evidence was presented that suggests that Oolong Tea lowers the amount of blood lipids, causing the slimming effect.
KONI Slim it Sencha- Green tea is particularly rich in a type of polyphenol called catechins. These substances have also been shown to have anti-inflammatory and anticancer properties, but recent research in animals show that catechins may also decrease fat absorption, increase fat excretion, suppress appetite, and decrease cholesterol levels.
Recommendation: Control your calorie intake and increase the number of calories you burn through exercise. It is also very important to eat three nutritious meals a day to enhance your metabolism. Before each meal, have 2 cups of KONI Slimming Teas. If you skip meals, your metabolism slows, and this means that your body’s adjusting itself into starvation mode, and making your calories stretch. This is dangerous if you’re trying to lose weight. When you’re feeling hungry, just make yourself a cup of an KONI slimming tea. This will help suppress your appetite until you are ready for your next healthy meal.
Although these types of teas may help, always follow the advice of your healthcare professional.
