While natural supplements may boost weight loss efforts, lifestyle changes such as a healthy balanced low sugar/simple carbohydrate diet and exercise remain the cornerstones to achieving and maintaining your healthy weight. With so many products offering promises for quick effortless weight loss on the market, how do we choose?
First and foremost, THERE IS NOT MAGIC PILL! How ridiculous is it to think that a PILL can simply melt away our fat without any lifestyle changes whatsoever. Yet, out of desperation and sheer frustration many woman waste their money on these products on a daily basis. Secondly, many supplements on the market have no valid scientific backing and are not required to meet pharmaceutical grade standards. This standard assures that the product has been tested for purity (screened for chemicals & toxins), dissolution (ability to dissolve in the digestive tract), and absorption or bioavailability (the supplement is properly absorbed). Many of these supplements pass through the gastrointestinal tract without ever being absorbed. This is the reason that I exclusively recommend, and personally use, pharmaceutical grade supplements from Lifeplus International, which are based on decades of research by Dr. Dwight McKee www.dwightmckee.com. In this blog, I will share information on Slenderlean, the key product that has help me with my own personal weight loss struggle, that can be used as an adjunct to the lifestyle changes discussed in my previous blog Winning the War on Belly Fat: Lifestyle Recommendations.
This product uses modern science to unlock the secrets of natural substances derived from two tropical trees, the Cacao tree (Theobroma cacao) and Cinnamomum cassia, whose inner bark contains the spice cinnamon, along with the amazing extract Artic Golden Root, to provide nutritional support for healthy moods, energy, appetite and weight management. While many nutritional supplements primarily target appetite control, this product uniquely targets the underlying insulin resistance that is contributing to the “belly fat epidemic” that is rapidly growing in our country.
Both chromium and cinnamon have been shown to have a role in glucose utilization and insulin function. While the data regarding their use in diabetes management is somewhat conflicting, there is adequate evidence to suggest that these naturally occurring substances may improve insulin sensitivity, which, in turn, improves insulin resistance.
Researchers have determined that Rhodiola rosea activates hormone sensitive lipase which plays a key role in breaking down stored fat. This enzyme is enhanced by exercise and synergizes with the other natural ingredients in the product to further promote lipolysis (breakdown of fat) and weight loss.
Scientists have identified more than 300 compounds in the cacao bean including essential vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fatty acids. Cacao compounds, known as methylxanthines, are known to have energizing properties, while phenylethylamine, theobromine and anandamide help to support healthy mood during weight loss.
Using Slenderlean with meals, along with significant changes in my lifestyle, has helped me lose 24 pounds (and keep it off) since last spring. Again, I have been able to lose weight with lifestyle changes in the past, but would rapidly regain the weight after “falling off the wagon” for even a short time. In the past, it would not be unusual for me to regain back the entire 24 lbs. in as little as one month of not following a rigid diet and exercise program. The natural ingredients in Slenderlean help me stick to my diet and exercise program by decreasing my food cravings and supporting my energy.
