Prevent Holiday Weight Gain and Still Enjoy Yourself…

Hello,

Here is my promised issue about avoiding the weight gaining
(although tasty) traps of holiday eating.

First though I’d like to reflect on something that happened to me during
my day and caused me to stop and reflect on something of importance.

I was very busy working on the PC, and one of my two beloved cats
“Tosca” a small brown tabby tried to jump on my lap. I quickly shooed her
away, and she just sat on the floor dejectedly looking at me with those big
sad eyes.

I looked at her and thought to myself” what am I doing that is so important
that I reject the love this little animal is trying to give me?” She is SO worth
my time and attention and so I put aside what I was doing to devote some
time to her.

As I beckoned to her, she was hesitant, but then she proceeded to jump
onto my lap. This was followed by much purring and adoration from her
little eyes, and I spent the next 15 minutes or so giving her the attention
she craved.  

She was a shelter cat, and I drove 8 hours each way to rescue her from
being “put down” as they call it. She shows her gratitude every day and I
am thankful to have her and my other cat “Tyler” (also a shelter cat) in my
life. They give so much, and ask so little in return.

My point is that life is both fragile and fleeting. We see it in the disasters
like Hurricane Sandy that claim so many lives, and hear about the
tragedies that seem to dominate the news these days.  Heading into the
holiday season we should remember this and be thankful for the people
(and pets) in our lives.

Take every opportunity to spend that quality time with those you love, be
they human or animal. Life is way too short to miss out on that time spent
with those we care about.

Ok, now about that holiday eating, there are a few rules that will help you
IF you follow them.

Here they are:

Avoid eating sugary deserts after fatty meals. This drives your insulin
levels through the roof and  will cause you to store calories in the form of
fat. It also contributes to heart disease by driving up inflammation.

Drink plenty of water before your meals, and you will find that it takes less
food to satisfy you.

Eat plenty of protein with your meals. Your digestive system has to work
harder to break down protein, so you will burn up to 30% of the calories in
that food just digesting it.

Protein also reduces the glycemic index (the rate at which sugar enters
your blood stream), thus preventing the rapid rise in insulin which causes
you to store fat.

There ARE a couple of supplements that you CAN use to avoid gaining
fat from the sugar in your meals, however please understand that these
are NOT a substitute for proper eating. They will help, but not if you go
overboard with sugary foods and don’t exercise.

One is called “hydroxycitric acid” and it is taken about 20 minutes prior to
a meal that has lots of simple carbs (sugar).  You can find out more about
it on my website at this link:

The other is called green coffee extract, and you can read about it at the
link below:

http://www.longevity-and-antiaging-secrets.com/green-coffee-bean-extract.html

Green coffee extract can be used on a regular basis. It is entirely natural
and quite safe!

If you have questions about these, just shoot me an email and I will
answer your questions as best I can. I generally do not gain any weight
during the holidays, and I would have to say it’s due to combining foods
properly, and avoiding problem combinations like fat with sugar.

Well that’s about it for this issue. The next one will go out the day after
Thanksgiving and will have a new product recommendation for you,

Here’s wishing you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving. Enjoy yourself,
stay safe and well.

George

Hi, my name is George Parigian Jr. and this is my very first issue of the
Age Better Newsletter.

What’s “Age Better?” This is my online journal in which I will share my
adventures, opinions, and discoveries!

I am a 57 year old personal trainer and former national champion in
Powerlifting. Like you, I’m searching for ways to live longer, healthier,
and happier and as I find them, I will pass them along to you.

I’d like to invite you, through the pages of this newsletter, to share with me
the adventure which is life. I have lots to show you! I will delve into some
pretty exotic subjects, but always with the intention of providing information
which will be of value to you.

Hey…I don’t claim to be a genius or some kind of guru. I am only human
(much as I hate to admit it) like everyone else, and have many of the same
problems that you do. However I really believe there are fixes out there
for some of the things that many people think can’t be fixed, and I love
researching and finding solutions to these problems.

My ultimate goal is to understand why we age and actually be able to stop
or reverse this process. Is this a delusion or fantasy on my part? No….we
are learning more every day, and so much of what used to be a mystery is
now becoming clearer. I will have some interesting information for you
going forward that will very likely surprise you.

Over the years I’ve learned that it’s important to listen not just talk,
because you never know when someone may give you an insight into
something important that you hadn’t thought of yourself. It’s happened to
me many times! I will be honest with you at all times.

When I know something for a fact, I will say so. When I am not sure, I will
admit that too. The beginning of knowledge is admitting that you don’t
know something, and understanding that you should never be
embarrassed to ask questions. It’s through asking questions that we learn.

I will be sharing with you the results of over 25 years of searching for
ways to promote better health and longevity. I will also delve into the
subjects of personal development and Internet marketing as well. In the
new millennium we will all have to adjust our thinking and efforts to find
new ways to prosper.

The Internet provides many new and expanding opportunities to make
money and live life on our own terms. As I learn and master new skills and
acquire new knowledge, I will share it with you through the pages of this
newsletter.

I hope to pass on as much value as I possibly can.

I will be mentioning various products and services to you over time. Some
of these products will be ones that I have an affiliate relationship with
(meaning that I earn a commission when someone buys them), and some
will not.

Any product I recommend will be something I have purchased and tried
myself so that I can make a fair and accurate review of it’s good points
and bad points.

I promise that I will never promote ANYTHING unless I feel that it is a
good value for the money. My credibility (and your trust) is important to
me and I will never compromise that. I will NOT barrage you with a
constant stream of product offers and promotions.

I will only present things that will help you solve problems and live better.
Also please note that your email information will NEVER be shared with a
third party. I value your trust and will ensure your privacy!

Lastly, I need your help! Yes….your feedback, criticism (please make it
constructive), and questions are all welcome. Please remember that I am
but one man, and have only so much time, but I WILL try very hard to
respond within a reasonable period of time, to your questions when you
ask them.

My goal is to make this newsletter more interesting and relevant to all of
you, and your input will help me to do that. Thank you for reading my
newsletter. Another one will be coming to your in box next week so please
watch for it.

That’s it for now.

Yours in health,

George Parigian Jr. – Age Better Newsletter
