Eat it Raw and Live to 100!

To understand the Solution -- First, understand the Problem:

In the early 1900s, Dr. Pottenger wanted to see what affect eating cooked foods had.

As an experiment, he took several hundred cats, and put them in primarily two groups. One group he fed uncooked, raw foods, and the second group he fed only cooked foods. This was the outcome:

Throughout the entire experiment, the raw food cats were strong, healthy and potent.

The cooked food cats, however, did not fare so well.

The first generation of the cooked foods cats lived a normal life, and developed diseases near the end of their lives.

The second generation developed diseases during the middle of their lives.

And the third generation were either born with diseases, or developed diseases shortly after birth.

When dropped, the kittens could not right themselves (i.e., dysfunctional). They would not play, had emotional problems, and fought a lot.

Weight Loss Myths

Diets

So many people are on diets, but it seems whether they are counting grams of fat and calories, popping pills, or eating special meals, they all end up with the same result - frustration! The question is, if we are all dieting, how come as a nation we are getting fatter and fatter. Dieting simply does not work. Over 95% of people that go on a diet will end up putting the weight back on, often plus a bit more! People think it is a lack of willpower, when it is really a lack of knowledge. The Betalife Program will empower you to take control of your weight.

The Weight Watchers Fact File

As the battle against the bulge intensifies, people are turning to professionals for help to watch their weight. One of the most used methods is Weight Watchers. Weight Watchers are now guiding people away from counting calories and fat, and have instead done it all for them. Their points system allows the client to know which foods Weight Watchers consider a good food, and which ones they recommend people stay clear of. The choice of foods then comes down to the individual, as long as they stick to the amount of points given to them by their Weight Watchers consultant.

10 Tips for Weight Loss

Remember that the best approach to weight loss combines healthy eating and regular exercise. It is important you stay focussed on both these areas.

Eat slowly and chew your food well. Put your cutlery down between bites and don't pick them up until you have finished chewing.

Instead of putting the food on the table and letting everyone help themselves, serve the food on the plate. Allocate the appropriate amount for each food group.

If you feel like snacking, try going for a walk instead. Before you go, have a good drink of water. Hunger is often disguising thirst.

If you have a problem with junk food and can't resist the temptation at home, stop the problem at the source. Don't buy any junk food! Or at least limit the amount you buy to one item per week.

Eat smaller meals, but more often. A healthy meal will be a lot more satisfying than a packet of chips or a drink.

Easy Steps for Weight Loss

Weight loss can be easy if you follow a few easy steps. Yet for many people the thought of weight loss means the impossible goal. Our society and thought patterns are what makes weight loss seem so difficult. We have been lead by the weight loss industry to believe weight loss has to be complicated by counting points, calories, fat or other things. Yet the end result is many people blaming themselves when weight loss in unsuccessful.

The first step to easy and permanent weight loss is to forget everything you have learned about weight loss. Yes, that is right, forget it all! Following old outdated weight loss methods results in frustration and failure. The important thing to realise is, the weight loss information you went by failed you. You are not to blame for weight loss failure. Recognising this, and moving on to a better weight loss solution is the first thing you need to do.
