4 Science-Backed Solutions for Natural (and Lasting!) Weight Loss
You are probably aware that being overweight — even if it’s just by 10 or 20 pounds — is linked to significant health risks, including heart disease, diabetes, cancer and arthritis. But what you may not know is that recent research shows that being overweight can actually shave up to 10 years off your life. Trying to lose weight is not just about looking good. The bottom line is that if you’re overweight, you’re unnecessarily jeopardizing both the quality and length of your life.
There are hundreds of different diets out there, and we’ve all seen fad weight loss gimmicks come and go. But the fact is, the vast majority of diets simply don’t work. Studies show that five out of six people who try to lose weight fail, and nearly all of those who do succeed gain the weight back within two years! Many people are desperate to find a weight loss solution that works. Knowing this, Big Pharma has tried to make big bucks with a blockbuster weight loss drug, but their efforts have been a disaster. Every “magic pill” they have come up with so far has been deemed ineffective at best — and at worst downright deadly.
Newly Discovered Weight Loss Miracles That Work
Pioneering new research is showing that there are vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that can help you lose a lot of weight without side effects, and without requiring you to make drastic changes to the way you eat. These solutions are readily available and affordable. You just need to know what to look for.
Over the last few years, I’ve reviewed hundreds of research papers on natural weight loss and have interviewed leading experts in the field, including Dr. Harry Preuss, one of Live in the Now’s contributing writers. Dr. Preuss, a researcher at Georgetown University and author of The Natural Fat-Loss Pharmacy, is considered the world’s foremost expert on natural weight loss solutions. Based on what I’ve learned, there are many natural compounds that can help you lose significant amounts of weight, but to achieve success you have to know which ones to take, the right doses and the most effective combinations.
The 4 Keys to Natural Weight Loss Success
Based on my research, the best way to achieve fast, safe and lasting weight loss is to use this 4-pronged approach:
1. BLOCK CARBS: The typical American diet is heavy on carbohydrates, which are packed with calories and can easily become extra weight. By naturally blocking your body’s ability to absorb certain carbohydrates, you can reduce your calorie intake without any extra effort on your part.
2. CURB APPETITE: When your stomach is growling, it’s hard to make good eating decisions. But what if you could naturally induce the feeling of being full? Certain nutrients can do just this, helping you reduce your total calorie intake with almost no effort.
3. INCREASE CALORIE BURN: Today’s fast paced lifestyle can make it virtually impossible to exercise enough. But there are natural ways to rev up your metabolism, helping you burn more calories day and night, without doing any additional exercise.
4. REDUCE FAT: Most of us have more body fat then we’d like, and it seems impossible to make it go away. Turns out there are some impressive nutrients that literally “melt” away fat and help create more lean muscle mass, which is essential for maintaining a healthy weight.
The “Miracle Workers” of Natural Weight Loss
To make it easy to follow this 4-prong approach to losing weight, I will now discuss the most effective nutrient for each category, as shown by the latest clinical research. You’ll find these miracle workers detailed below.
Shown to Naturally Block Carbs
A natural extract derived from white kidney beans, called phaseolamin, is perhaps the world’s most effective mechanism for neutralizing the starch found in foods like potatoes, bread and pasta. If your love for carbs has been an obstacle to losing weight, this nutrient can help. A UCLA study showed that those who took phaseolamin lost twice as much weight as those in the group that received a placebo. 1,000 mg per day is the dosage used in most studies.
How to Easily Curb Your Appetite
Craving foods when you’re not truly hungry is perhaps the single greatest obstacle to maintaining a healthy weight. However research has shown that a naturally occurring compound extracted from garcinia cambodia, also called hydroxycitrate or HCA, can actually suppress hunger. You may have heard of garcinia cambodia last year, when Dr. Oz touted its miraculous hunger-curbing abilities. According to an eight-week study conducted at Georgetown University, a group of individuals taking garcinia cambodia lost an average of 12 pounds each, compared to just three pounds for the placebo group. The best dosage to take is 2,500 mg daily.
Burn More Calories Without Extra Work
Despite our best efforts, we usually end up consuming more calories than we need. Exercise is key, but there’s a safe and natural way to “cheat” the system. It turns out that a unique compound in green tea called EGCG can significantly increase calorie burn — enough to essentially wipe out one to two meals per week according to the latest research. The best way to achieve meaningful results is with a green tea extract that is standardized to at least 50% EGCG. 300 mg is the minimum daily dose you need to get these results.
Say Goodbye to Excess Body Fat
You’ve probably heard of chromium before, but few people realize that a specific form, known as niacin-bound chromium, can play a critical role in weight loss. In the fight to lose weight, excess body fat is the hardest to get rid of, since your body is designed to hold on to fat to use as an “emergency fuel” in case of famine. However, research shows that supplementing with chromium can result in a significant loss of stubborn body fat, while at the same time increasing essential lean muscle mass. To get these results, you need to take about 200 mcg per day.
Are You Ready to Get Started?
If you’re serious about losing weight this year, and want to do it naturally and safely, I encourage you to take advantage of these scientifically researched solutions. There’s plenty of information online about these weight loss nutrients, so I invite you to do your own research. You may also want to consider reading Dr. Harry Preuss’s groundbreaking book, The Natural Fat-Loss Pharmacy, for the most comprehensive overview.
If you want to get started right away, you may want to consider Stop Aging Now’s weight loss formula, SynergySlim®, which I personally helped formulate based on Dr. Preuss’s work. It contains the optimal doses of all 4 of the weight loss miracle workers I’ve detailed above. In fact, the green tea used in SynergySlim has been clinically shown to help you lose up to 30 pounds in 90 days. I lost 22 pounds while taking SynergySlim — weight I had been trying to lose for years, so naturally I’m a huge fan and a true believer in this product.
There’s a special promotion going on right now that will allow you to get SynergySlim for as low as $19.95, which is about 30% off the regular price, as well as get free shipping.
