To Be Healthy Or Not to Be?

Aug 27, 2008
That is the question! The answer has to come from you. Not just in the form of words, but also in the form of a decision followed by action.

Good health. Is that alive and well in the United States these days? In 1976, the obesity rate was so low in the US, that in a survey that was done, it couldn't even calculate a percentage of obese people vs. healthy people. It was an oddity to see a 300-400 pound person. Today, the lowest obesity percentage recorded is in Colorado, which shows a less than 15% obesity rate. The highest state has an obesity rate of over 30%! It is not uncommon to see/read about or hear about a 300-400 pound person daily any longer! It is projected, that if the obesity rate continues to grow at the current rate, that by 2048 the U.S. will have a 100% obesity rate. How did we get here? Is there a way to get back?

Let's look at the solution. First and foremost, you must make a decision. To be healthy or not to be? That is the question you must WANT to answer. I am going to share with you some basic steps to take in order to get on the path of good health. These 5 steps will get you started:

1) Change the water that you drink.

Drink distilled water with trace minerals.

2) Stop drinking soft drinks. At the very least cut back drastically. All soft drinks, yes even diet soft drinks, should be avoided.

3) Change the order of hour meals. I am not saying to change your diet over night, that is hard and can be discouraging. Just eat your proteins, starchy carbs, and simple carbs before 3 pm. After 3 pm eat only fibrous carbs, fish, and salads. It is best to eat 6 meals per day; (each meal should contain a carb, a protein, an a fatty acid.)

4) Do some sort of physical cardio workout 3 times/week for 20 minutes. Walk briskly, jog, or an aerobic exercise with resistance.

5) Get the proper amount of nutrients into your body through supplements. Nutrition that targets your whole body, in 3 parts, is best. A greens supplement that will build your immune system by balancing your pH level. A supplement that will boost your antioxidant levels to fight free radical damage to your cells. Finally a supplement of L-Arginine (5000 milligrams per dose) to clean out your arteries and increase the flow of the healthy blood that the previous 2 supplements produce.

These 5 simple things can work wonders for your health and produce great results for fat loss, not just weight loss, but fat loss!

In order to fully benefit from the first 4 steps, you must go through an increased consumption protocol of the supplements. Here is what is recommended:

- Take the L-Arginine product 4 times a day for 2 weeks, then 2 times a day afterward (also take the L-arginine product 20 minutes before you do your workout).

- Take the greens product 3 times a day for 2 weeks, then 1-2 times a day afterwards.

- Take the antioxidant rich supplement 2 times per day everyday.

There you have it. Simple to do, but difficult to change and continue. You will see results if you stick with it. Take the challenge of doing this for 90 days and see the results for yourself.

You are not trying to change your whole diet all at once here. Changing the way you eat, what you eat and how you eat it takes time, so don't try to change everything overnight. You can find great meal plans anywhere on-line and you should, but that is something that will be easier for you to do by the end of this 90 day challenge.

Remember, always consult your physician before starting any exercise program.
