Freelife's Ultimate Weight Loss Plan

Freelife's Ultimate Weight Loss Plan. Simply follow these Seven Success Tips.

1. Avoid all refined carbohydrates

This is a critical tip for you to follow. Avoid refined carbohydrates, which include all products such as white breads, cakes, cookies, white rice, and pasta. Avoid all refined sugar products including sodas, ice cream, corn syrup, molasses, honey and beer. You should also avoid starchy, high-carbohydrate vegetables such as potatoes, corn, beets, and carrots. These foods raise your blood sugar levels rapidly, which can cause weight gain.

2. Eat natural, fresh, unprocessed foods

Increase lots of fresh, unprocessed foods in your diet, and stay away from processed foods. Each step of processing causes a food to produce higher glucose levels. Typically, processed foods have added sugars, carbohydrates, and chemical additives. The fiber content is also lower, which causes the sugar and carbohydrates to have a greater negative impact on your glucose levels.

3. Exercise

Exercise has a balancing effect on your blood sugar and insulin levels. It helps to decrease your body fat and cholesterol and increases your energy level. Even if you don’t have a regular exercise routine, you can incorporate exercise as part of your lifestyle. Walk to the store, walk up that flight of stairs, and mow your lawn. Studies have shown that these mini-exercise sessions have a beneficial effect on weight loss.

4. Drink water

Many of us are actually dehydrated. This is why it’s important for you to drink a minimum of eight to ten glasses of pure water daily. Adequate water intake helps in the weight loss process; rids your bloodstream of excess fat which can help reduce your cholesterol levels; and keeps you regular. Two to three glasses of Fired Up! Is a great-tasting way to increase your water intake and give your body the appetite-reducing energy boost you need every day!

5. Take a multivitamin supplement

Take an all-natural vitamin/mineral supplement rich in antioxidants and phytonutrients. Taken with food, a complete, all-natural multivitamin helps increase your energy and supports your immune system. (You will not find a better supplement than Basic Mindell Plus!)

6. Eat protein at every meal and snack

Protein stimulates glucagon, a hormone secreted by the pancreas that helps regulate blood sugar and allows your body to burn stored fat. When you eat protein along with carbohydrates it helps balance your blood sugar. Drinking one or two Carbs Away Shakes every day as a snack or meal replacement is a delicious way to add the most absorbable form of protein to your diet!

7. Learn how your body reacts

Take responsibility for knowing about what food you put into your body and then how your body reacts. Choose foods that make you feel good over the long run. If you are achieving your weight and health goals, your carbohydrate consumption must be close to optimum. If you are not, adjust downward the amount of sugars, grains, starchy vegetables, and sweet fruit you are eating.

Regarding CNN Money Report About The Goji Berry Drink

I came across and interesting article about the a new energy drink from Beer Giant Anheuser-Busch called 180 Red with Goji. I'm not sure how much actual percentage of goji berry is in the drink and the quality of the berries used. If I was to hazard a guess it's probably similar to some of those fruit type drinks that are about 10% fruit juice, but I don't know this at the present time. But as you can see from the list of ingredients below it contains carbonated and sugar water amongst other ingredients.

Here is a list of ingredients:

180 Red with Goji contains carbonated water; su crose; Goji berry juice; acerola juice; guarana for natural caffeine; vitamins B-6, B-12 and C; and lychee natural flavor.

The reason I sent the Anheuser-Busch article/drink thing to you is just to share with you guys that GOJI is in the news and on the move! Regardless of who puts out what product with goji in it, the mere fact that BIG corporations are taking note of the awesome properties of the goji berry gives us THAT much more power.

For a company the stature of Anheuser-Busch to be making a product with the Goji Berry is another major validation of the amazing goji berries.

Here is that article for you to read:
