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:

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
