Nutrit Meal Replacement To Start Crowdsource Campaign

We are pleased to announce that Nutrit Meal Replacement is starting a Crowdtilt Campaign for its initial production run.

On the heals of the successful campaign for Soylent, Nutrit promises a meal replacement product that has been totally reimagined. Nutrit provides a complete days nutrition while helping a person avoid processed ingredients, soy, wheat, dairy, GMOs, and Dairy. Nutrit is made up of organic proteins and fats, flavored with organic cocoa. Nutrit costs less than fast food, is easier to make than instant noodles, and tastes similar to chocolate milk.

Meal replacement as an idea is a sound one. In a fast paced society, its hard to avoid problem ingredients and at the same time get the nutrition one requires to stay healthy. Its all too easy, in a pinch, to reach for something in a vending machine or fall back on take out food. To date, meal replacement products and protein concoctions offer an unmeasured nutrient value, and mostly contain ingredients that can cause inflammation. Nutrit has solved those problems by being an easy mix powder, that offers an organic, non-GMO ingredient list that mirrors RDA requirements.

Nutrits Crowdtilt campaign is primarily being undertaken to provide funds to meet our vendors initial minimum order quantities. The merits of this product stand on there own, and we feel it is important to get it out there. Nutrit can help the average person avoid problem ingredients, and control calorie intake, all while getting more complete nutrition than is afforded by a standard diet.

Find out more at our site; www.nutritmr.com and get involved at:https://www.crowdtilt.com/campaigns/nutrit.
Only with your help can we bring this truly novel product to market and the world.

Using Psychology to Lose Weight

Dr. Kenneth Schwarz, co-author of the series, Weight-Loss Books for Women — Using Psychology to Lose Weight, will appear on The Mary Jones Show on Monday, August 20, 2012. The show is from noon to 2 p.m., and can be heard on WDRC-AM 1360 Hartford, WSNG-AM 610 Torrington, WMMW-AM 1470 Meriden, and WWCO-AM 1240 Waterbury.

Dr. Schwarz will be interviewed by Mary Jones about the 7 self-help, how-to books that he wrote with his wife, the writer Julie North Schwarz. The books are all about using psychology to lose weight. This  Symmetry Press series of books shows that psychology is what is missing from the usual formula, weight loss = dieting + exercise. The missing psychology, according to Dr. Schwarz, has to do with adherence and personal change. In other words, if you don’t stick to it, it won’t work; and in order to accomplish permanent weight loss, you have to change your old ways and develop new ways.

The Using Psychology to Lose Weight series illustrates how to use psychology to lose weight by taking traditional weight-loss issues and showing women how to use psychology to maneuver through them.

The first book in the series is a novel of passionate weight loss. It is called Breaking Up With Food: Maria’s Last Diet. It delivers its self-help by taking the reader deep into a woman’s psychology.

The 3-volumes of Psych Your Diet: A Daily Dose are handy advice manuals to use for each phase of the weight-loss process. They show a woman how to make the personal changes needed for each weight-loss phase.

Volume 1. Psych Yourself to Start supplies what you need to get going—inspiration, understanding, and how-to’s.

Volume 2. Psych Yourself to Stick to It gives you ideas, strategies, encouragement, and more so you can do what it takes to adhere to your weight-loss regimen—all the way to goal.

Volume 3. Psych Yourself to Keep It Off helps you see what you have to do to maintain your lost weight, and it explains how to go about doing it.

Stop Your Emotional Eating lays the groundwork for seeing emotional eating for what it is. It gives a compendium of emotional eating ideas, ways to think more fully and clearly about emotional eating. Stop Your Emotional Eating, of course, also tells how to stop your emotional eating, with strategies to use for all the different aspects of emotional eating.

To solve the problems that wreck a woman’s weight-loss attempts, there is Diet Tuffy: The Fun Way to Seriously Lose Weight. This workbook helps you target your toughest dieting and weight loss problem, come up with a brand new solution, and make an ingenious plan to put the new solution into action. With Diet Tuffy, a woman can square off against lack of willpower, low self-confidence, feeling deprived, too much stress, and any other weight-loss foe.

The most recent book in the series is How to Break the First Big Rule of Women Who Stay Fat. This book is a personal guide to breaking one of the rules in a woman’s life that has been working to keep her fat. With the help of the strategies in this book a woman will be able to break the first big rule and handle those moments when she feels all her power slip away and she plunges right into food.

Dr. Schwarz will be available after his interview on The Mary Jones Show to answer questions at hi@mariaslastdiet.com. More on using psychology to lose weight can be found on Dr. Schwarz’s blogsite  www.mariaslastdiet.com.

The New Year is coming, and people like to keep the resolutions they make. Symmetry Press offers help, with its new line ofweight-loss psychology books for women.

Psych Your Diet: A Daily Dose — 3 volumes   for  the 3 stages of weight loss—START, STICK TO IT, and KEEP IT OFF.

These are handy advice manuals for women to use every day. The books are designed to be read one piece at a time, one a day. Each selection gives an effective dose of daily knowhow, encouragement, and inspiration.

The research shows it is staying on a diet (adherence) and not the particular diet that makes for successful weight loss. 1,2,3 Women who want to lose weight need good information and help with adhering, just like they now have with knowing what to eat. Judging by the statistics, the old formula [diet + exercise = weight loss] is not helping women to adhere. On any given day 45% of women are dieting, but 62% of women from 20 to 74 are still overweight.

Breaking Up With Food: Maria’s Last Diet is a novel of passionate weight loss.

Dieting Gets a Makeover

It is time to shine a light on what makes the difference for successful dieting. It is not the diet that matters most. What really counts is paying attention to the psychological side of things.

The new look of dieting is painted into a novel of passionate weight loss called Breaking Up With Food: Maria’s Last Diet. The authors, Julie North Schwarz and Kenneth Schwarz PhD are also the creators of the women’s website, MariasLastDiet.com. The website is a wealth of information about the psychological issues that all too often stand in the way of weight loss.

Breaking Up With Food is a self-help book that pulls the reader deep into a psychological milieu. Maria’s weight-loss journey is a story of suspense, mystery, daring, and victory. It begins with an unintended look in the mirror, and ends in triumph when Maria reaches her goal weight at last.

Breaking Up With Food is fiction, but there’s a real story behind it. It’s a story for any woman who has trouble dieting. It’s for those who can’t stay on a diet; it’s for those who stay on but at some point gain it all back. It’s for those who keep trying and failing; it’s for those who keep dreaming about losing weight; it’s for those who have given up the dream and want it back.

Dr. Schwarz, a psychologist and psychoanalyst, puts it this way: “ This book is meant to inspire and encourage every woman who is still struggling with her weight. It is not, by any means, a rigid set of rules. Instead, reading the book is an uplifting experience. It’s like when you pick a flower, you don’t need to stop and think, this is the stamen, these are the petals, this is the reaction with the sun that makes it this color—no. You pick the flower, it’s beautiful, it gets inside of you, it makes a difference in your life. That’s what Maria’s story is like.”

Expert Reveals Simple Secrets To Lifelong Weight Loss

You can finally lose weight and keep it off forever… just by thinking like a fit person. That’s the promise of a new book, Die Fat or Get Tough: The 101 Differences in Thinking Between Fat People and Fit People by Steve Siebold. It’s a new approach to helping two thirds of Americans who are overweight or obese.

“It’s about learning and using mental toughness to stick to a diet and exercise program,” says Siebold, an internationally recognized mental toughness expert who lives in North Georgia and South Florida. “It’s so simple that anyone can use mental toughness. This will be the last book you’ll ever need to read on weight loss.”

The author was recently a “fat tub of lard with a large pot belly.” The information in the book helped him lose 40 pounds in 12 weeks, and he hasn’t had a problem since.

Here is a question and answer session with Steve Siebold:

What is the book about?

“It’s not about the fact that diets don’t work or getting fat wasn’t your fault. Of course, it was your fault. Someone wasn’t stuffing pizzas and doughnuts down your throat. You did. It’s not all about diet or weight loss or exercise.

“It’s about learning and using mental toughness to stick to a diet or exercise program. It’s about thinking – consciousness. Mental toughness is about taking mental and emotion control of your life, and it begins with self-discovery. But mental toughness can get you thin and healthy.”

What do you mean by the title, Die Fat or Get Tough?

“Overweight people have only two options in life. Die fat or get tough! Two thirds of Americans are overweight or obese, says the federal government, and the number is increasing rapidly. This is a giant health problem.”

So is mental toughness the secret to losing weight?

“Yes. Dieting is not easy, but it is simple. Just pick a world-class diet and exercise program and develop the mental toughness to stick to it. It’s the only effective way to shed unwanted pounds. You can develop mental toughness by understanding the 101 differences in thinking between fat and fit people explained in the book.”

What’s so different about this book?

“There’s a million diet books out there. But this book is a new approach to losing weight and getting fit that is so simple that anyone can use it. And it will be the last book you ever need to read on weight loss. You’ll think about being fat like you never have before. That’s why I believe my book is so unique and effective.

“It’s really hard-hitting. It will eliminate every excuse you’ve ever made for being fat. It will force you to see yourself as others see you. You will learn that getting fat is really your fault – completely your fault. And it will help you emerge victorious over your weight problem. You will begin to believe you can do anything – that you can live a long, healthy life, filled with boundless energy and super self confidence.”

Who is the book written for?

“If you are 10 or more pounds overweight and ready to get fit, this book can be the answer. It’s for anyone who really wants to lose weight, wants to get tough, do it and solve it for once so it never comes back. I’m not talking about some fad diet where you lose some weight and gain it back. I’m talking about wiping out all excuses and solving your weight problem once and for all.

“The people who really work hard at controlling their weight have a mindset – it’s mental toughness. And you can adapt this mindset and understand how fat people think versus how fit people think. If you catch yourself thinking like a fat person, you’ll know how to change it to a fit person’s thinking.

Why did you write this book?

“I wrote it to shock people out of the psychological delusion that keeps them fat, sick, and unhappy…and into reality about what it takes to get fit forever. People are suffering needlessly, getting sick and dying too young because they’re fat. This book has the power to change that, if the reader is tough enough to grow up and accept objective reality.”

How did you gather the information in the book?

“I did five years of research and interviewed hundreds of fat and fit people across the United States and dissected their core beliefs and philosophies around diet and exercise. What I found were fit people have completely different beliefs and philosophies in this area, and these beliefs and philosophies drove their eating and exercise habits. The differences in thinking are so extreme I decided to write a book about it.”

I understand that the book has been called “disturbing.”

“One of my colleagues called my book a disturbing masterpiece. This book will shock you. It will grab you by the throat and not let you go. I’ve had people tell me they get mad at the book, toss it aside for a while and then pick it back up. I’m known for being direct, but this book is borderline offensive. People all over the world say they are shocked with the approach or offended but couldn’t disagree with anything I wrote.”

What is your background?

“I am an internationally recognized expert in mental toughness, and I once was a fat slob! I train sales management teams of Fortune 500 companies, address some 60 live audiences a year and rank among the top 1% of income earners among professional speakers worldwide. I have written two books on mental toughness. The late Bill Gove, the father of public speaking, and I formed the Gove-Siebold Group, based in Boynton Beach, Florida. I co-starred in the movie “Beyond the Secret”, which is to be released June 23, 2009.

“I live in South Florida and in the Atlanta, Georgia metropolitan area with my wife Dawn, a dog and two sugar gliders.”

How can someone get this book and your other books?

You now can get five chapters of the eBook for free at www.diefatbook.com. The print soft cover edition of Die Fat or Get Tough is scheduled for release in mid-July 2009. You can order copies in advance at www.diefatbook.com, starting about mid-June.

Gastric Band – £3980, inlcuding 3 x-ray assited refills

The Gastric Band surgery will be carried out in a specialist state hospital in Prague. www.beautifulbeings.co.uk

Gastric Band surgery is not an instant solution to weight loss. Having a gastric band fitted will assist in decreasing overall daily food intake and can help you achieve a sustainable weight.

The Gastric band works by causing a feeling of fullness when eating and will enable you to reduce your daily intake of food and calories. The gastric band will make you eat less, it will reduce the sensation of hunger and will progressively aide weight loss.

This is achieved by placing the band around the uppermost part of the stomach, dividing it into two sections, with a small opening between sections which allows food to pass through. The section above the band forms a small pouch that fills with food quickly.

Having the gastric band fitted will lead to a healthier lifestyle and lower the risks of obesity related illnesses However changing your eating habits is an important part of the gastric band surgery process. The gastric band will help you to achieve substantial weight loss and reduce the risk of obesity related illnesses. To achieve the maximum benefits from having the gastric banding, post-operative discipline is an important part of the process.

You will need to go on a diet immediately after the gastric band surgery. You will obtain a detailed dietary plan with essential and important advice from your specialists. After the gastric band surgery you can consult the plan with a dietologist recommended by your doctor.

Generally it means that following the gastric banding you will only be able to consume liquid food within the first four weeks such as soup, tea, coffee, unsweetened drinks, fruit and vegetable fruits, yoghurts etc. You will need to reduce the amount of fluids consumed and not eat or drink large amounts at once.

The following two weeks you will be able to eat small portions of mushy, mixed food.

Next the diet will be replaced with common food. Please consult your doctor for more detailed information.

These slow changes of eating habits are important for your recovery. During this process the gastric band will be, thanks to body tissue, firmly placed on the appropriate part of your stomach. Consuming large portions or frequent consumption of solid food increases the risk of dislocating (moving) the gastric band out of its position or the possibility of gradual upper stomach pocket stretching. The consequence might be reduced weight loss and in some cases necessity for re-operation.

Following the gastric banding you might find some food hard to eat. You will need to chew your food more carefully than before the gastric band surgery. Keep in mind that even after the gastric banding there is no quick solution to reduce your weight. The results depend upon your ability to respect recommendations concerning your diet and exercise routine.

There’s a new diet game in town and it’s not a diet

There’s a new diet game in town and it’s not a diet. It’s called Diet Tuffy, an online system to help a woman succeed on any diet she chooses. Developed by a psychologist, Dr. Kenneth Schwarz, Diet Tuffy is based on the psychological principles of problem finding, breakthrough thinking, specific planning, and goal achievement.

Dieting remains at the forefront of most women’s minds. At any given time, 45% of women in the U.S. are on a diet, but here’s the raw fact: 62% of women ages 20 to74 are still overweight. The problem is, most women can’t stick to a diet. Through a series of fun-filled and confidence-building steps, Diet Tuffy helps a woman succeed where she has failed before. She can now successfully square off against lack of willpower, emotional eating, negative thinking, temptations, stress, and all the other dieting foes.

Dr. Schwarz who, with his wife Julie North Schwarz, founded MariasLastDiet.com, announced the release of Diet Tuffy today. Dr. Schwarz says, “Women who get stopped by the same old problems when they diet are going to like the totally fresh approach that Diet Tuffy gives them.”

Making your New Year’s resolution stick: A Dear John letter

Dear Food,

I’m breaking up with you.

Don’t be surprised. I’ve certainly tried to do it many times before, but I always weakened and went back to you.

I finally woke up and realized this relationship is not good for me. I’m not getting what I need from you. It’s hurting me, not allowing me the space to grow in the ways I need to grow. You’re holding me back.

I know I’ll have separation anxiety, but I’ve stayed with you too long, way past when I should have. This just isn’t working for me. You don’t listen to me. You don’t give me attention. You don’t care about what I’m going through. It’s almost like you don’t have any feelings for me at all, yet I’ve stuck close to you, helpless and dependent.

I know you won’t let go of me so easily. I know you’ll keep calling me, asking me to come back. But please, let me go now.

In the beginning you were always there, ready to calm me and soothe me, but it went too far. I came to rely on you. I looked to you for everything. In all fairness, it was too much to ask of you. No way could you fulfill all my needs. For so long I’ve settled, afraid to go out there and find something better for myself. I need to do that.

I now withdraw my heart from you so I can be free to put it elsewhere, some place where I can be loved back. I’ve tried to break up with you before. This time it’s real. I want to be on the cutting edge of my own life, and I can’t do it while I’m still tied to you. Thinking about being free scares me, but I want it. I must have it. I think I’m brave enough at last.

I know I’ll long for you. I know I’ll think of you a lot, especially during those hard times. I know I’ll be tempted to come back to you. But this time I’ve got a plan, things I’m prepared to do when I get lonely and sad. I’ve been thinking of other ways to celebrate when I’m happy or proud. I have remedies in place for being bored or tired.

At this point you’re a troublemaker in my life and I intend to keep my emotional distance from you. So in a way, this is goodbye. Of course, I’ll still come into contact with you day to day, but let’s just be friends, not lovers.

Don’t cry (although you never do, it’s me who does all the crying).

Continued testing in rural Southern Africa shows promiseful results for those with HIV/AIDS

AIDS Research Assistance Institute, a non-profit organization, has been monitoring hundreds of people with AIDS/HIV when they add the immunity boosting food supplement, ‘concentrated Flax Hull Lignans’ (FHL) to their diets. The results are better than expected and may hold a key for future researchers as they try to find solutions to the AIDS pandemic worldwide.

Boasting a 92% success rate, A.R.A.I. has been involved with rural Southern African grass roots organization leaders who have been giving FHL to people suffering from the AIDS/HIV virus. Typically when an HIV infected person adds 1.5 tsp of the FHL to their daily diet, their viral loads drop significantly (around 35% of them drop to non-detectable within the first 6 weeks!) and their CD-4 counts (measurement of immunity) raise in great numbers. A malnourished child will also typically start growing in height and weight once introducing the FHL into their diets. Many children have grown between 6-11 cm in a three month period!

Researchers can only speculate as to the exact function of the FHL that is causing the success. Many studies have been done in the U.S. by doctors that show lignans boost immunity. The FDA has reported that flax seed lignans have anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungus properties.* Tests have shown that FHL’s ORAC values (measurement of anti-oxidants) are very high. Kale, the super anti-oxidant dark leafy green vegetable, has an ORAC value of 1770, while FHL’s equivalent ORAC value is 19,600. FHL has typically been researched for it’s effects against cancer but now hundreds of people with AIDS/HIV are feeling better, going back to work, and are causing researchers to take a serious look at the possibilities of using a simple, all natural food supplement to help fight AIDS/HIV.
