Snooki's Secret to Weight Loss

I've never seen an episode of Jersey Shores. And frankly, I don't care to.

But I do know Snooki. A name like that demands attention.

Snooki knows a BIG secret to achieving weight loss

But you know this secret too.

You might not know you know it. But you do know it.

This secret isn't some special piece of equipment
or any particular exercise. It's not even a new diet or supplement.

Would you like to know what this secret is?

The secret is sacrifice.

You see, sacrifice is essential when it comes to
losing weight. You must sacrifice something. Often times many things.

Sacrifice is defined as 'destruction or surrender of something for the sake of something else'.

You can't get something without giving something (up) in return.

You know it.

I know it.

When it comes to your weight loss, it's making sacrifices that will help you get rid of the pounds.

"If I weren't here (working out) I'd be sleeping. It's been a good decision. A no-brainer really."

One of our clients said that to me after I inquired about his program.

He sacrificed a little sleep.

Snooki is sacrificing booze.

"I just have to quit the drinking so much. If I do drink, it's going to be, like, vodka and seltzer ... maybe like two or three."

Sheesh. Ok, maybe she's not sacrificing all that much. (I guess if
you have 12 drinks 2 or 3 is a big change.:-)

What are you sacrificing to lose weight? What have you 'destroyed' or 'surrendered' in order to lose weight?

Fast food is a popular one. Sweets, eating out, TV, the list goes on and on.

The fact remains, if you are not making any sacrifices, you will not lose weight.

Taking a pill is easy. Buying some abdominal contraption is easy. There's no sacrifice in that.

Nothing good and lasting comes with ease. Sacrifice is a must.

A good homework assignment is to list out at least 3 sacrifices
necessary for you to lose weight. Feel free to post them in the
comment section below and I'll give you some feedback.

To your weight loss success,


P.S. By the way, giving up booze except for vodka is pretty weak. That's like saying you'll give up McDonald's except for the Quarter Pounder. Make your sacrifice worthwhile.

P.S. A gentle reminder that we're here for you when you're ready. With swimsuit season around the corner it might not be a bad idea to set your appointment.

Half of Americans do this. Do you?

According to a new study released by the Center for Disease Control over half of U.S. adults use supplementation on a daily basis. This is way up from the last study conducted in 1988.

This isn't surprising. The health and exercise boom over the last 25 years has been dramatic. More men and women are taking control of their health and looking to not only cure symptoms of poor health, but prevent them as well.

In my opinion, there are 3 supplements everyone should take. And I'm not peddling snake oil. It's not choosing a blue pill or red pill, or drinking some chemical cocktail.

This is sound, scientific supplementation. Safe and effective. Consider it a foundation to your health.

1. Multi-Vitamin Mineral

This is your starting point. Studies have shown only 3% of people actually get the proper amount of vitamins from their diet. I think that's even a stretch. So maybe you eat a healthy diet. Maybe you don't. The fact is, an apple today is NOT what an apple was 30 or 40 years ago. We eat more genetically modified foods, more microwave dinners, more fast food, and less good nutritious food. A multi-vitamin mineral is a must.

2. Fish Oil

Fish oil has been gaining rapid popularity over the last few years. It's benefits for the heart, joints, and brain can't be overlooked.

Heart disease is still the #1 leading cause of death in men and women in the United States. The American Heart Association recommends eating 2 servings of fish high in Omega 3's each week. But most don't... even during the Lenten fish fry season.

3. Nutriferon

This might be a new one for you - unless you've heard me endorse it before. Nutriferon is simply a blend of plant extracts that increase your body's natrual interferon, a critical activator for your immune system.

This supplement has been proven by study after study. My wife, a big skeptic at first, was so sick for a two month stretch I lovingly forced her to start taking it. She's glad I did. She's now a huge advocate for Nutriferon and what it can do for your immune system.

If you're not supplementing at all, these 3 should be your starting point. Think about taking the other two if you're only taking a vitamin. And most importantly if you're at risk for heart disease or get sick a lot, 2 or more times a year, then add fish oil and Nutriferon IMMEDIATELY!

It should go without saying, but be sure to look for high quality supplements. There's not just a lot of stuff that can be harmful to you, but there's a lot of stuff that is NOT helpful. That would be supplements with fillers and ineffective ingredients.

Remember that you're putting this stuff in your body to help prevent, promote, or cure your health. And this is the very reason why we choose Shaklee products. For over 50 years, generations of families have relied on Shaklee to do what no other company can do - make products that are naturally safe AND proven effective.

Every product that goes into every bottle is designed to improve health, work without compromise, and be gentle on the planet.

That's guaranteed safe and effective. And they have the science and testing to back it up. I'm not only excited to recommend their products, but proud.

If a company doesn't guarantee safety, if they're open to 'test the waters' with certain ingredients, run the other way.

If a company doesn't test their products, if they don't have any studies in peer reviewed journals, if they're quick to put out a product, run the other way.

Don't grab the cheapest stuff. There's typically reason for it's price. Do a little homework on the supplement, the company, their standards for research, testing, and manufacturing.

Whenever I talk about supplementation there are a lot of individual questions that come up. For that reason I'm offering a complimentary 'Supplemenation Audit' to answer any questions you have and discuss what supplementation might be appropriate for you to introduce to your diet. I'll only be doing this til the end of the month so don't tell yourself you'll get to it later. Just click here to request the audit and we can set up a time convenient for you.

To your health,
