Can we Lose Weight or get rid of Diabetes without Changing Anything?

The resounding answer to this question is a big NO!

We all see things on TV and other media along with the internet and the message is the same, if you buy our product we can help you get rid of diabetes without changing your eating habits.

Folks this “ain’t” ever going to work. If you have cancer, diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, heart disease, Autism, learning problems, Crohn’s disease, or anything else (most people can recover from these problems if they change their lives) there is an excellent chance your body can heal itself if you change everything in your life. The first thing is changing your food from sugar, grains, potatoes, vegetable oil, MSG, HFCS, toxins in water, and air pollution (in door).

After all this is said the point of this newsletter is that I have found a new product with some research technology from 2008 that appears to let people lose about 28 pounds in 10 weeks by drinking a healthy water infusion fruit extraction in a non-toxic bottle. The product is not expensive and it tastes great.

I am including the article about the African Mango/Irvingia extract that is put into the Reign water from Beyond Organic. The information is excellent and information from Jordan Rubin that owns Beyond Organic is also outstanding.

As usual I do not recommend anything that I have not done so I have ordered our fruit infusion and of course I do not eat any processed foods or sugar and High Fructose Corn Syrup. You can check out the products on my website www.drbobod.mybeyondorganic.com

 

Information on Reign Fruit Infusion to lose weight

 

This is clinical trial information that you can look up or read below on the African Mango.  The weight loss benefits are in the studies.

The Reign Fruit Infusion drink from Beyond Organic www.drbobod.mybeyondorganic.com has the same amount of African Mango/Irvingia in it as was used in this study (150 mg).

 

If you or family and friends are trying to lose weight I would suggest that you try this product. Take 2 bottles a day on an empty stomach and see how it works for you and others. The results look pretty impressive.

 

Please let me know if any of you need any questions answered.

 

African Mango: What if you found out that there was a super food that when tested on humans was found to help the average person lose an average of 28 pounds in 10-weeks?

In a controlled study published in the Journal of Nutrition 2008,

people taking this new compound lost 28 pounds over a 10-week

period compared to less than 3 pounds in the placebo group.

 

Different than other weight loss studies that mandate at least

some moderation in food intake, these study participants did not

alter their diet in any way. What is this super compound you might ask?

It’s called Irvingia and it’s found in African Mango. This new compound has shown better weight loss results than any hormone, drug, or food in medical history! Irvingia works in 4 Fantastic ways:

 

First, it works with adiponectin to increase insulin sensitivity

 

Second, it balances the hormone Leptin which signals your

brain to burn fat

 

Third, decreases amount of blood glucose that turns into fat

 

Fourth, it blocks the enzyme amylase from digesting starches

that would have become sugar.

In the 2 most popular clinical studies done on Irvingia (African mango) 150mg was taken twice daily and participants lost 12.8 pounds in 4 weeks and 28 pounds in 10 weeks.

 

The highest quality product that contains African Mango and that is easily obtained and easily consumed is Reign Fruit

Infusion drink made by Beyond Organic.

 

Clinical Studies:

African Mango
After 10 weeks on 150 milligrams of African mango twice a day, patients weighed 23.32 lbs pounds less than patients given placebo. The African mango group lost 5.1 inches in waist circumference and lost 4.4% more body fat than placebo group. Total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol values were also decreased.

Ngondi JL, Etoundi BC, Nyangono CB, Mbofung CM, Oben JE. IGOB131, a novel seed extract of the West African plant Irvingia gabonensis, significantly reduces body weight and improves metabolic parameters in overweight humans in a randomized double-blind placebo controlled investigation. Lipids in Health and Disease. 2009;(8):7.

After one month of 1.05 grams of African mango three times a day, patients lost 8.8 pounds, 1.8 inches of hip size and 2.4 inches of waist circumference. Patients on placebo did not significantly lose weight or decrease size.

More Weight Loss than Any

Other Discovery in History!

In a breakthrough that may reverse today’s epidemic of obesity, a natural compound has been discovered that circumvents the molecular factors involved in obesity.

 

In a recent controlled study, people taking this new compound lost an average of 28 pounds in a 10-week period.  Unlike other weight-loss studies that mandate at least some moderation in food intake, these study participants did not alter their diet in any way!

 

There have been many drugs, hormones and supplements introduced over the years to help with weight loss, probably the most notable being Leptin.  When scientists discovered that Leptin signaled the brain to burn fat, they couldn’t have been more excited.  When given to mice, Leptin caused weight loss of 40% after only 33 days.  The problem was that Leptin did not work in Humans due to our “Leptin Resistance” keeping the Leptin from entering our cells and doing its job.

 

Another problem with weight-loss supplements is the “survival instincts” of the fat cells themselves.  Much like cancer cells, fat cells deploy several survival mechanisms when their existence is threatened.  No supplement, hormone, or drug has ever been able to circumvent the natural ability of fat cells to propagate and retain excess fat – until now!

 

Introducing Irvingia – an extract from African Mango found in Reign Fruit Infusion.

 

Irvingia has been shown to work via multiple pathways to promote effective fat loss.

 

  1. Reducing the absorption of sugar      (inhibiting a-amylase activity)
  2. Reducing glucose levels and      insulin induced lipogenesis (A.K.A reduced insulin sensitivity)
  3. Inhibiting the conversion of      glycerol to triglycerides (reducing fat cell triglycerides and the      glucose-3-phophate dehydrogenase enzyme)
  4. Reducing Leptin resistance      (reducing CRP binding to Leptin)
  5. Lowering serum Leptin levels (Leptin      unable to be used by the cells)
  6. Increasing anti-inflammatory,      anti-atherogenic, and anti-diabetic effects (increasing adiponectin      levels)

 

With all of these benefits working together, weight-loss was only one of the benefits of Irvingia shown in these studies.

 

Weight Loss Glucose Levels LDL Levels

28 pounds

Down 22%

Down 27%

Adiponectin   Levels Serum Leptin   Levels CRP Levels

Up 160%

Down 49%

Down 52%

 

These studies found that the dosage of Irvingia required to produce these results is 150 mg taken twice daily.

 

Beyond Organic’s Reign Fruit Infusion has 150 mg of this compound in each bottle. Two bottles per day are all you need to reap these rewards.

Can McDonalds (and other processed foods) Really Kill You?

YES, processed food can and will kill you and your family if you eat enough on a regular basis.

The classic Morgan Spurlock’s documentary “Superseize Me” explained how one man ate McDonalds “food” for one month and his health began to fail quickly. In just four weeks he was on his way to obesity and diabetes. We all know that fast foods are not healthy but processed foods can be purchased from grocery stores, so fast foods are not the only way to hurt our health. Actually, any restaurant food is unhealthy.

The following info is depressing in its truth but everyone needs to know what is wrong with food and how to do better for themselves and their families. I got the info from Mike Adams article “Surprise Ingredients in Fast Food” and from a site explaining how to read between the lines to find the massive amounts of MSG in store-bought foods and restaurants.

Below is a partial list of the most common names for disguised MSG.  Remember also that the powerful excitotoxins aspartate and L-cysteine are frequently added to foods and, according to FDA rules, require no labeling at all.

Additives that always contain MSG

  • Monosodium Glutamate
  • Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein
  • Hydrolyzed Protein
  • Hydrolyzed Plant Protein
  • Plant Protein Extract
  • Sodium Caseinate
  • Calcium Caseinate
  • Yeast Extract
  • Textured Protein
  • Autolyzed Yeast
  • Hydrolyzed Oat Flour

Terms that frequently indicate hidden MSG additives

  • Malt extract
  • Bouillon
  • Broth
  • Stock
  • Flavoring
  • Natural Flavoring
  • Natural Beef or Chicken Flavoring
  • Seasoning
  • Spices

Additives that may contain MSG or excitotoxins

  • Carrageenan
  • Enzymes
  • Soy Protein Concentrate
  • Soy Protein Isolate
  • Whey Protein Concentrate
  • Protease enzymes of various sources can release excitotoxin amino acids from food proteins.

The above are to be avoided at all costs. Avoiding will curtail eating out at any restaurant.

The following are the chemicals that are in restaurants. I am not picking on McDonalds. All restaurants are unhealthy.

A lot of the following chemicals are GRAS – Generally Recognized As Safe, but the truth is that most have not been tested for people consumption.

McDonald’s

The egg’s reputation is recovering, but scrambled eggs as a part of McDonald’s breakfast include much more than egg. Their pasteurized whole eggs have sodium acid pyrophosphate, citric acid, and monosodium phosphate (all added to preserve color), and nisin, a preservative. To top it off, the eggs are prepared with liquid margarine: liquid soybean oil, water, partially hydrogenated cottonseed and soybean oils (trans fats), salt, hydrogenated cottonseed oil (trans fat), soy lecithin, mono- and diglycerides, sodium benzoate, potassium sorbate (preservatives), artificial flavor, citric acid, vitamin A palmitate and beta carotene (color). 

McDonald’s coffee drinkers get the following chemical list of ingredients: sodium phosphate, sodium polyphosphate, Di-Acetyl Tartrate Ester of Monoglyceride, sodium stearoyl lactylate, tetra sodium pyrophosphate, sodium hexametaphosphate, sodium citrate and carrageenan. 

McDonald’s salads have some interesting ingredients. The salads with grilled chicken also have liquid margarine.

Several salads have either cilantro lime glaze or orange glaze added. Along with many of McDonald’s sauces, both the cilantro lime glaze and the orange glaze contain propylene glycol alginate. While propylene glycol is considered “GRAS” for human consumption, it is not legal for use in cat food because the safety hasn’t been proven yet [10]. Propylene glycol is also used “As the killing and preserving agent in pitfall traps, usually used to capture ground beetles” [10]. 

The chili lime tortilla strips that are included in the southwest salads have several ingredients used to hide MSG. They also contain two ingredients that advertise the presence of MSG: disodium inosinate and disodium guanylate. 
 
The chicken has sodium phosphates (of an unspecified variety). It could be trisodium phosphate (a cleanser), monosodium phosphate (a laxative) or disodium hydrogen phosphate [11]. Why would McDonald’s add sodium phosphates (a foaming agent), and dimethylpolysiloxane added as an antifoaming agent in their crispy chicken breast fillets? It isn’t dishwasher detergent.

The other point to remember is that all chicken is raised with genetically modified grains, hormones, steroids, antibiotics, arsenic, herbicides and pesticides. After slaughtering, they pump the chicken up with a solution of High fructose Corn Syrup, MSG, salt and water.

Burger King
 
It’s interesting to note that the BK Veggie Burger has six ingredients commonly used to hide free glutamate (MSG): calcium caseinate, hydrolyzed corn, yeast extract, soy protein isolate, spices and natural flavors. At the end of the ingredients list, it states This is NOT a vegan product. The patty is cooked in the microwave.  

Burger King has three salads to choose from – the TENDERCRISP Garden Salad, the TENDERGRILL Garden Salad and the Side Garden Salad.
 
A salad may be a little boring without a dressing like Ken’s Fat Free Ranch Dressing which includes titanium dioxide (an artificial color, or sunscreen, depending on use), preservatives and the ingredient seemingly mandatory in all ranch dressings: monosodium glutamate. 
  
TENDERGRILL® CHICKEN BREAST FILET
Chicken Breast with Rib Meat, Water, Seasoning (Maltodextrin, Salt, Sugar, Autolyzed Yeast Extract, Garlic Powder, Spices, Natural Flavors, Onion Powder, Modified Corn Starch, Chicken Fat, Chicken Powder, Chicken Broth, Disodium Guanylate and Disodium Inosinate, Citric Acid, Partially Hydrogenated Soybean Oil, Dehydrated Garlic, and Artificial Flavors, Modified Corn Starch, Soybean Oil, Salt, Sodium Phosphates. Glazed with: Water, Seasoning [Maltodextrin, Salt, Sugar, Methylcellulose, Autolyzed Yeast Extract, Partially Hydrogenated Sunflower Oil, Modified Potato Starch, Fructose, Partially Hydrogenated Soybean Oil, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Dehydrated Garlic, Spices, Modified Corn Starch, Xanthan Gum, Natural Flavors, Disodium Guanylate and Disodium Inosinate, Chicken Fat, Carmel Color, Grill Flavor (from Partially Hydrogenated Soybean and Cottonseed Oil), Chicken Powder, Chicken Broth, Turmeric, Smoke Flavor, Annatto Extract and Artificial Flavors, Soybean Oil.

Taco Bell

Taco Bell’s website didn’t have much emphasis on health. Under the nutrition guide, at the bottom, was a link to Keep it Balanced, a token nod to health. It had no serious information on how to really eat healthy. They recommend foods like pizza and tacos (no surprise) because they may include ingredients from several food groups at once. Including several food groups does not necessarily mean it’s a healthy food.
 
The seasoned beef, carne asada steak, spicy shredded chicken and even the rice all include autolyzed yeast extract (hidden MSG). Disodium inosinate and disodium guanylate are flavor enhancers used in synergy with MSG. Therefore, menu items with disodium inosinate and/or disodium guanylate also contain MSG. This includes the avocado ranch dressing, southwest chicken, citrus salsa, creamy jalapeno sauce, creamy lime sauce, lime seasoned red strips, pepper jack sauce and seasoned rice. 
 
According to Wikipedia, dimethylpolysiloxane is optically clear, and is generally considered to be inert, non-toxic, and non-flammable. It is used in silicone caulk, adhesives and as an anti-foaming agent. Appetizingly enough, it’s also included in Taco Bell’s rice. 

Wendy’s

At Wendy’s, there are several tempting salads. The mandarin chicken salad seems healthy at first glance. It has diced chicken, mandarin oranges, almonds, crispy noodles, your choice of dressings and five different varieties of lettuce. Then reality takes a bite when you check the ingredients list. The almonds are roasted and salted. The crispy noodles are not whole grain. The mandarin orange segments are not freshly peeled oranges; most likely canned. The diced chicken has added autolyzed yeast extract (MSG), disodium inosinate, disodium guanylate, sodium phosphates (soap?), salt, more salt, sugar, modified cornstarch and the universal umbrella ingredient list: spices, natural flavors and artificial flavors.

In the ingredients lists for the salad dressings, one surprise was titanium dioxide in the Low Fat Honey Mustard Dressing and the Reduced Fat Creamy Ranch Dressing. It’s a very versatile chemical. It can be used to manufacture paint, sunscreen, semiconductors and food coloring.

Wendy’s Southwest Taco Salad is a salad with Wendy’s chili. Once again, the chili has hidden MSG: autolyzed yeast extracts, spices, artificial flavors, natural flavorings, disodium inosinate and disodium guanylate (MSG give-aways). It’s puzzling to try to understand why their chili would need to include an anti-caking agent such as silicon dioxide, also known as sand or glass powder.

See if you can spot the sunscreen, MSG and soap in this Wendy’s ingredient:

Seasoned Tortilla Strips
Whole Corn, Vegetable Oil (contains one or more of the following: corn, soybean or sunflower oil), Salt, Buttermilk Solids, Spices, Tomato, Sweet Cream, Dextrose, Onion, Sugar, Cheddar Cheese (cultured milk, salt, enzymes), Corn Starch, Modified Corn Starch, Maltodextrin, Nonfat Dry Milk, Garlic, Torula Yeast, Citric Acid, Autolyzed Yeast, Natural and Artificial Flavor, Artificial Colors (including extractives of paprika, turmeric and annatto, titanium dioxide, red 40, yellow 5, blue 1), Disodium Phosphate, Lactic Acid, Soy Lecithin. CONTAINS: MILK.
 
Subway

If a sandwich is advertised as healthy, one would expect that the bread would be whole grain. Not so with Subway’s wheat bread. While it does have some whole wheat flour, it’s the third ingredient, listed just before high fructose corn syrup. None of Subway’s breads are whole grain. Ammonium sulfate (a fertilizer) is also added. The bread also contains azodicarbonamide. From Wikipedia, 

Use of azodicarbonamide as a food additive is banned in Australia. In the UK, the Health and Safety Executive has identified azodicarbonamide as a respiratory sensitizer (a possible cause of asthma) and determined that products should be labeled with May cause sensitization by inhalation.

Most of the meats at Subway contain MSG and/or sodium nitrite. 

You have to wonder how Jarred lost weight eating Subway.

KFC

The chicken, the gravy and even the rice all have monosodium glutamate added. Not surprisingly, the chicken in the salads also has MSG. For a healthy menu item, the House Side Salad without dressing has nothing more than iceberg lettuce, romaine lettuce and tomatoes. 
 
KFC claims 0g trans-fat per serving for all their fried chicken, but the Extra Crispy Chicken, Colonel’s Crispy Strips, HBBQ Wings, Boneless HBBQ Wings, Fiery Buffalo Wings and more have partially hydrogenated soybean oil listed in the ingredients. So, if the trans-fat content is below 0.5g per serving, they can round down to zero and claim zero grams per serving. 

It is clear that if you want to be healthy, you can’t eat restaurant food or grocery store food.

No one can change overnight to break the bad food eating habits, but if you just change one thing at a time, you can have less disease and spend a lot less money on doctors, drug bills and insurance.
