ZEST LADY KEY TO EASY WEIGHT LOSS:.......How I lost 50 pounds in six months.

There are six easy steps to reaching your ideal weight and maintaining it with the Zest Lady Be Lean Protocol.

I have been a yo-yo dieter all my life..........losing 50 pounds and then gaining it all back in a couple of years. As a result of my desperate quest to reach my ideal weight I ruined my health for more than five years because of eliminating almost all fat from my diet. I have finally found the secret to losing excess weight and keeping it off in a way that also promotes vibrant health and fitness.

I would like to add that my weight loss protocol is generally stress-free and does not depend on will power. It is based on a regimen of high protein, high fiber, and plenty of healthy fats from nuts, seeds and vegetables. Fiber makes one feel full sooner and stays in the stomach longer than other foods we eat which slows down our rate of digestion and keeps us feeling full longer. Another benefit of slower digestion is that the absorption of glucose into the bloodstream is slowed. According to studies, fiber stabilizes and lowers blood sugar levels. Fiber also moves fat through our digestive system faster so that less of it is absorbed. The best tasting fiber I' ve ever had is the peach flavored AIM fit ‘n fiber. It is 12 grams of fiber a serving with 10 grams of heart healthy soluble fiber. A great way to feel full and be fit. Code 5175E - Member price $35

The healthy fats have many benefits and help you feel satisfied so you don' t have to rely on will power. With the Zest Lady Be Lean Protocol you will be eating lots of tasty food so you don' t starve yourself. Starvation dieting only slows down metabolism. It is helpful to do a raw foods cleanse with lots of fruit and vegetable juice, or a lemon cleanse to keep metabolism up with natural, easily processed sugars and lots of enzymes, which help the body break down fat and get rid of old toxins. What I will share with you:

  • Has nothing to do with pills that give you the jitters and keep you awake all night.
  • No starvation diets. When eating raw you can consume more food and still lose weight.
  • No will power struggles and binges when the will power gives out.
  • No counting calories ( raw food choices are self limiting)
  • No hours at the gym.

Based on personal experience, this is what I recommend:

Step 1. Focus on boosting nutrition and eat more raw food. (see recommended sources).
You don' t have to go 100% raw, but the more raw food you consume, the faster you will lose weight and be emotionally and physically fit to maintain your ideal weight. Live (raw) foods are the only type of food that can restore the electrical potential of the tissues once cellular degeneration has begun to occur.

Boosting your nutrition will not only give you more energy, it will help get rid of cravings. A quick and tasty way to get the enzymes, proteins, vitamins, minerals, natural chlorophyll, and essential amino acids is to drink a glass of BarleyLife Xtra which contains green barley juice concentrate and fruit and vegetable extracts in a naturally sweetened powder form. It tastes so good even your kids will drink it which is a good way to get them to eat their veggies. One serving is only 25 calories and 1.5 grams of natural sugar from Lo Han, a Chinese fruit. Good in water, juice or a smoothie. BarleyLife Xtra - Code 4072e Member Price $38

BarleyLife and BarleyLife Xtra are also available in the Garden Trio with Just Carrots and RediBeets powder. A good buy for the three powders that you'll use in many recipes for powerhouse nutrition.

Delicious comfort food choices will include puddings, candy, cookies, cakes and pies,......all with raw ingredients. Avoid commercially processed foods and anything with high fructose corn syrup, MSG, or preservatives. Omit bad fats like hydrogenated oils, canola, margarine or substitute butter. If you eat beef, eat only grass-fed, not corn fed beef. Grass fed has the right balance of omegas unlike corn fed.

I recommend that one meal a day be a smoothie. A good vegan high protein, high fiber, low fat smoothie is the AIM weight loss smoothie. You can purchase the ingredients by ordering the Weight Management Starter Pack - Code: 5400E Member price $111- comes with four 32 oz. bottles of CellStar juice, fit ‘n fiber powder, and Propeas vegetable protein powder. Includes a complimentary “smoothie your way to a healthy weight DVD”, Free AIM membership, free shipping and an AIM coupon good for $10 off a new Member' s next order of $75 or more.

The benefits of a raw food diet are:

  • Increased energy
  • Beautiful and younger looking skin
  • Better digestion
  • Weight loss
  • Reduced risk of cancer, heart disease, diabetes and other degenerative diseases
  • Increased feelings of well-being
  • Empowered spiritually and energetically aligned with your desires

Another benefit of the Zest Lady Be Lean Protocol is that you will feel so good and the results will be felt so fast that you will be automatically encouraged to continue.

Step 2. Flush out toxins.
A weight-loss diet that does not help the body purge stored toxins will only succeed temporarily. Weight loss can' t last without some form of cleanse, because the toxins that were stored in fat tissue circulate in the bloodstream and other systems of the body - causing headaches, fatigue, achiness, pain, dizziness, moodiness, and other withdrawal-type symptoms - until the body stores them in new fat tissue. For optimal functioning, the body wants to segregate whatever toxins it can' t remove - which is why people regain weight after most diets.

If you want to clear out the toxins polluting your body and achieve permanent weight loss, here are some tips:

  • Stop eating or drinking diet products! “Diet” sodas, "sugar-free" snacks and most energy bars are loaded with artificial sweeteners and flavorings. They will sabotage your health and interfere with your weight loss efforts.

  • Don' t eat white bread, white flour, white pasta, or white sugar. They are bleached, heavily processed, and contain little nutrients.

  • Stop eating artificial sweeteners. They may say "lo-cal," but they' re even worse for your health and weight than white sugar. There are many natural raw sweeteners that you can enjoy.

  • Go organic. Non-organic fruits and vegetables only put more pesticides into your body.

  • Try adding more fresh lemons, uncooked (cold pressed) virgin olive oil, coconut oil, apple cider vinegar, goji or wolfberries to your diet, all of which promote healthy weight loss and cleansing.

  • Replace refined sugars with healthier sweeteners like yacon syrup, agave and stevia, which balance blood sugar levels, support the pancreas, and do not promote weight gain.

To aid with cleansing and detoxing I suggest the following:

AIM RediBeets - The liver is one of the most important cleansing organs so be good to your liver. This sweet tasting beet juice powder can be added to drinks or smoothies and contains essential enzymes along with a natural form of betaine which aids in cleansing the liver and reducing homocysteine levels. Elevated levels of the amino acid homocysteine in the blood may be associated with atherosclerosis (hardening and narrowing of the arteries) as well as an increased risk of heart attacks, strokes, blood clot formation, aging, weight gain, and possibly Alzheimer's disease. Code 1953e - $24 Member price.
AIM Herbal Release - A combination of herbs that help maintain a healthy lymphatic system, rids the body of toxins, promotes bowel regularity, and functions as an anti-parasitic. (120 vegetarian capsules) Code 634e - $16 Member price
Herbal Release
AIM Herbal Fiberblend - a combination of soluble fiber, psyllium, and cleansing herbs to help maintain bowel regularity. It also provides dietary fiber , assists in removing toxins from the body, and helps maintain healthy cholesterol and blood sugar levels. (280 vegetarian capsules) Code 3636e - $35 Member price

Step 3. Control blood sugar
Keeping your blood sugar levels under control is probably the most important factor in maintaining energy levels, controlling and preventing diabetes, controlling your appetite, and losing weight.

In addition to avoiding processed white sugar there are several things that I suggest you include in your diet along with soluble fiber. (Controlling blood sugar is another benefit of fiber). Cinnamon can increase insulin sensitivity which means that it is helping your body control blood sugar while simultaneously allowing your body to produce less insulin. Use as much cinnamon as you can tolerate in your daily meals Add to smoothies, chia puddings, raw cookies or anywhere you would enjoy. Chronically high insulin levels can cause you to gain weight. Studies suggest that cinnamon reduced fasting blood glucose levels by 18-29% after about a month.

If you need help controlling blood sugar, a good supplement is
AIM Glucochrome - a combination of vanadium, gymnema sylvestre, bitter melon, and a unique barley-grown chromium to maintain healthy blood sugar levels. It also promotes beneficial effects on blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels, increases lean body mass, and lowers body weight. Code 2767e (60 vegetarian capsules) Member price $16
Step 4. Inhale essential oils to curb appetite and use them in thermogenic drinks to help dissolve fat. (See article) The Be Lean Whiffer™ personal aromatherapy diffuser pendant was designed to support weight management and comes with instructions on what oils to use.

Step 5. Develop a fun exercise/fitness routine with a hoop or exercise ball.
It has to be something you enjoy or you won' t do it for long. I enjoy hooping and do a hooping workout for at least a half hour every morning before I go to my office. Put on your favorite music with a beat and rock. Many people also use it for meditation. A good hoop is bigger and heavier than the old fashioned hula hoop. Get a weighted hoop and measure from the floor to several inches above your waist to determine your size.

Step 6. Boost metabolism.
One of the ways you can boost metabolism is to be aware of which are the good fats and which are the good carbohydrates. An example of good fats would be organic butter, eggs, coconut, olive oil, raw nuts, sprouted seeds, and avocados. Raw almond butter is delightful. Good carbs would include sprouted grain, brown rice, spelt, millet, quinoa, sweet potatoes, fruits, and vegetables.

Cayenne pepper stimulates the metabolism up to 20%. It also cleans fat out of your arteries and leads to a diet-induced thermo effect which helps burn calories for up to 3 hours. Hot spicy foods raise your body' s temperature. Your body strives to be normal and will burn calories faster in order to cool down.

An Australian study proved that ginger revs up the metabolism and burns calories faster. Chinese herbalists prescribe ginger for weight loss, because of its warming ability. By raising body temperature, ginger helps to stimulate your body' s fat burning mechanisms. Use fresh ginger or the essential oil from Young Living.

Garlic is a natural antibiotic, heats up your body and boosts immunity. It is known for helping colds and flu. Garlic is a potent diuretic and an excellent weight loss aid. The best garlic I' ve found is the wild garlic from AIM called Bear Paw Garlic - a unique wild garlic leaf that helps lower cholesterol, maintain a healthy cardiovascular system, and blood pressure levels as well as treat symptoms of upper respiratory tract infections. It is called Bear Paw because it is the first thing bears eat when waking up from hibernation. Code 217e (90 vegetarian capsules) Member price $16.00

Another versatile and tasty powder is vanilla flavored AIM ProPeas - Go green, stay lean. Go green with a vegetable protein source.......field peas. Stay lean - the pea protein gives you a feeling of fullness, it increases your metabolic rate, and aids in the maintenance of lean muscle mass. ProPeas is all-natural with a strong amino acid profile to support an alkalizing diet.5321E (vegan) vegetable protein powder - Member price $35 for 16oz. Also, available in the AIM Lean Team pack and in the AIM Weight Management Pack.
