Did you know that the most widely used tactics for dieting include:
- Watching portion sizes (34%)
- Controlling the total amount of food eaten (28%)
- Reducing the amount of junk food (25%)
- Monitoring calories (24%)
- Getting rid of snacks (21%)
- Reducing sugar (21%)
- Taking weight loss supplements (over $2 billion spent annually)
Well, there is one way you can cut desire for many fattening foods but it takes a little will power. We suggest you stop eating all forms of sugar or sweeteners for 10 days. For some reason this is the time it takes for your body to lose its addiction. I know this may be hard so in the meantime try using stevia (an herb) or sucking on a cinnamon stick. Do not substitute artificial sweeteners as not only are they unhealthy, but they will not let you detox the sweet tooth desire.
If you try this (we have and it works) please leave us a comment. And check out our new online course you can watch on vimeo with modules about Joint Health, Stress, Sleep, Memory Loss and more. Click Here for videos

We have had over 100 people complete our survey to help us design content for our upcoming course “Ten Days to Living Longer”. To date the most concerns of those who participated were: joint pain and decreased mobility, fear of heart problems, memory loss and restricted vision. 90% of those who answered the question “Would you like to know what to eat that could lengthen your lifespan?” answered – absolutely! We will keep you updated on additional survey results and let you know how we are progressing on the course content. Thanks for all of those who are helping in this venture. If you want to be included in the survey click the archive link for April 2016 and read the post.
I just did a video on an easy trick to get over depression, low self worth, anger, sadness (at least temporarily). Check it out: It’s the 2nd one on the page for my upcoming Reinvent Yourself webinar series.
Since 2005 evidence has been mounting that Alzheimer’s disease is essentially type-3 diabetes. Theories say that the build-up of beta amyloid plaques in the brain in place of normal brain cells, is key contributor to the development of the disease – and insulin resistance may trigger these plaques to develop. Research also suggests that type-2 diabetics lose more brain mass with age than a healthy individual which may contribute to dementia.
Insulin helps regulate neurotransmitters such as those responsible for memory and learning. Therefore, a drop in insulin levels may impair cognition. Some studies indicated a link between lower insulin levels and the risk of Alzheimer’s. Dallas Clouatre, Ph.D. says “Increased consumption of simple carbohydrates leads to blood brain barrier degradation and subsequently damage to the hippocampus.”
In reading this article it would seem to prevent insulin resistance, cut down on your carbs and sugars. Also we have found that Phosphatidyserine (PS100) supports good brain function and also our favorites are lecithin, magnesium, electroltyes specifically formulated for the brain (www.electroblast.com) and a good plant source of essential fatty acids (http://foreveryoungcooperative.com/yesefas.html).
