Weight-Loss Success

Why most diets fail and how you can succeed with a metabolic master reset.

“Fat destroyed my life.”

Sounds like the name of a new TV series? We’re wildly exaggerating here to make a point: You don’t want that to be the name of a reality show that ever is, or ever was, your life.

Being overweight or obese increases your risk for a whole boatload of diseases and conditions.

Fact is, the more you weigh, the more likely you are to suffer from heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, gallbladder disease, sleep apnea and certain cancers.

The flip side is that a healthy weight offers many benefits. It supports you in lowering your risk for developing these problems, and others, helps you to feel good about yourself, and gives you more energy to enjoy life.

Are You Unhappy With Your Weight?

Well, if so you’re not alone! Recent research reported by Shape magazine says that a lot of people are really bummed about their weight. In fact, a full 89% of American women are not happy with their weight and 84% want to lose weight.

Most people who try to lose weight only focus on one thing—the El Dorado of health, to some, and the all-popular topic of late-night infomercials and daytime self-help shows: weight loss.

But there are so many things that affect weight loss and totally get in the way of our very best efforts to lose weight.

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall?

Changing the way you look at weight loss can help you be more successful at losing excess pounds and keeping them off.

Another way of putting it is this: If you focus on motivators, as opposed to just diet, you’re much more likely to be able to keep the weight off and feel better about yourself.

If you set goals—begin to eat healthy foods, use the right weight-loss products, become more physically active, and learn how to alter behaviors—then you can increase your chances for weight-loss success. As time goes by, these changes in your diet and lifestyle can become part of your life.

What’s on Your Plate?

A healthy eating plan gives your body some of the nutrients it needs while helping you to stay within your daily calorie goals.

Healthy plates are heavy on fruits, vegetables and feature lean meats, poultry, fish, beans, eggs and nuts. A weight-savvy diet is low in polyunsaturated fats (like corn oil), trans fats (like margarine and movie “butter”) and added sugars. Scaling back on calories is part of any responsible plan to lose weight.

A two-pronged approach, one that not only has you taking in fewer calories, but also involves staying physically active, will help you lose weight, but you will need some serious help to not only achieve significant weight loss but, more importantly, to keep the pounds off.

15 Reasons Why You’re Always Overweight

  1. You eat too many “low-fat” foods. We know it sounds weird, but low-fat foods are usually packed to the gills with extra sugar, gums, starch and chemical junk that more than make up for their full-fat counterparts!
  2. You’re not eating enough food. You basically starve yourself for long periods of time, maybe all the time. This screws up your metabolism and you wind up snacking a lot and overeating at dinner.
  3. You don’t sleep enough. Sucky sleepers were 32 percent more likely to gain weight over a 16-year period, according to the Nurses Health Study
  4. You don’t eat consciously. TV, hand, bowl, repeat. Set aside meal time for meal time, not for zoning out with your munchies.
  5. You go into beast mode when you eat. Take human bites! Eat slowly and pay attention to when your body gives you the “I’ve had enough” signal. Portion control is an important part of weight loss. No duh.

Long-term weight loss, and healthy weight control, cannot be achieved unless we improve our metabolism and our hormone balance. To do that, we have to go deep.

Real deep, to the level our glands, so that we can enlist our own body’s systems in our battle of the bulge.

Because overweight and obesity are huge problems (no pun intended) for the world that are getting bigger each year (really, no pun intended!).

Big City: The Skinny on Fat and Activity

  • More than one-third (34.9% or 78.6 million) of U.S. adults are obese.1
  • Over 35% of U.S. adults are overweight.2
  • Obesity-linked conditions include heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and certain cancers.
  • Obesity is higher among middle-age adults, 40-59 years old (39.5%), than among younger adults, age 20-39 (30.3%) or adults over 60 (35.4%).
  • Approximately 17% (or 12.7 million) of children and adolescents aged 2 to 19 years are obese.
  • Only 22.4% of U.S. adults eat fruits or veggies more than once daily.3
  • Number of supermarkets: 11.6 per 100,000 people; number of farmers markets per 100,000 residents4: 2.5.
  • Percentage of adults who walk or bike to work5: 3.4%.
  • Percentage of adults who watch 3 or more hours of TV daily: 32.5%.
  • The vast majority of Americans6 don’t event meet basic nutritional guidelines.

It could be Glandular!

The pituitary is a pea-sized gland that hangs out at the base of your brain and controls the functions of most of the other endocrine glands; this is why it’s sometimes called the master gland.

The pituitary gland is, in turn, largely controlled by the hypothalamus, an area of the brain just above the pituitary. By obsessively checking the levels of hormones produced by glands under the pituitary’s control, the hypothalamus or the pituitary are able to figure out how much stimulation the other glands need.

The pituitary decides what level of hormone response all of the following organs and tissues need:

The hypothalamus controls the front of the pituitary gland, or anterior lobe, by firing hormones out via connecting blood vessels; it directs the back of the pituitary, or posterior lobe, via nerve impulses.

The pituitary produces a bunch of vital hormones, including endorphins (that help with pain) and vasopressin, which regulates how much water is excreted by the kidneys, so this puppy is so needed in order to maintain water balance in the body.

Sometimes, one hormone is over-produced by a pituitary tumor and another is under-produced. Too much, or too little, of a pituitary hormone brings on a whole slew of problems relating to muscle formation, physical development and fat storage.

Kidney Wishes and Adrenal Dreams

With apologies to Robin Leach’s famous quote from Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, sitting on top of your kidneys are two triangle-shaped glands—the adrenal cortex, which produces critical hormones that need to be in balance: cortisol (which regulates metabolism and helps us react to stress) and aldosterone (which controls blood pressure)—and the adrenal medulla, which produces adrenaline.

Adrenaline, as we probably know, is the fight-or-flight hormone that mobilizes your body to spring into action in what it considers to be a stressful situation: a fight, an argument, traffic, screaming kids, yelling bosses—you name it. Great for responding to occasional attacks by wild animals or invaders but not so great when our adrenals are overtaxed by constantly responding to stressful situations all day long.

Below the adrenals, the kidneys balance the internal chemistry of the body, both removing chemicals we don’t need (extra water and salt, for example) and keeping certain substances and chemicals that we do need—like potassium. They also jettison waste products from the protein in foods and from normal muscle activity.

They release several hormones, too, including renin and erythropoietin, an activated form of vitamin D. In kidneys that aren’t working the way they should, the release of renin is uncontrollable and can cause high blood pressure.

When the kidneys are messed up, these waste products build up in the blood and can act as a poison for the body.

Moving back up the body’s endocrine conga line brings us to the thyroid gland—located just under our voice box and right above our windpipe—is the numero uno regulator of the body’s metabolism.

If the thyroid does not function correctly, you are being set up for chronic problems with weight loss, regardless of how great your diet is and how much you exercise.

5 Ways to Boost Your Metabolism

  1. Stop dieting! Okay, we’re only partly kidding here. What we mean is, a healthy diet isn’t about eating less, it’s about eating more of the good stuff. Just starving yourself deep-sixes your metabolism because your body slows your metabolism down so it can hang onto fat stores because it thinks you’re starving and on a nomadic trek across the desert. Dieting the wrong way also forces your body to start burning muscle for energy.
  2. Get more sleep! A Finnish study7 looked at sets of identical twins and guess what? The twins who slept less and were under more stress had more visceral fat.
  3. Down more protein! A 2006 study said that exercisers should eat more protein8 because protein can accelerate post-meal calorie burn by up to 35 percent!
  4. Eat it hot! Eating about one tablespoon of chopped red or green chilies amps up your metabolism by roughly 23 percent!9
  5. Jam with java! A once-daily cup a joe can increase your metabolism by about 98 to 174 calories a day. Just don’t get too wired with caffeine, now.

Could There Be a Metabolic Master Reset?

You’ve tried everything. You exercise. You eat right. You’ve tried crash diets, fad diets, low-carb, maybe even ephedra, way back when, and, more recently, HCG.

These diets either didn’t work for you or did but are no longer available.

But what if there were a powerful, safe and effective way to help your body’s endocrine network reset itself?

What if some of your biggest obstacles to weight loss—like adrenal fatigue and endocrine ennui—were to be removed?

What if all of the good work you are doing with your diet, exercise and nutrition can finally start to pay off?

Fortunately there is a way, and it’s called the Optimum Weight Management Program.*

Program Part 1:

Optimum Weight Management Formula Drops

The first part of our weight-management program is BodyHealth’s Optimum Weight Management Formula, a homeopathic formula that supports weight loss when combined with a low-calorie diet.*

We’ve discussed the importance of our glands, and you’ll be happy to know that this formulation helps the body to support healthy functioning of the thyroid, pituitary and adrenal glands.

When the body’s metabolic regulators are working properly again while you are on the low-calorie diet you’ll be able to experience less hunger, reduced cravings and more energy. Nobody likes getting “hangry!”

With better endocrine balance, improved diet and select supplements, you will be positioned better to achieve increased fat burning and energy levels and will, as a consequence, be able to hold onto lean muscle more efficiently.*

A Homeopathy Mini-FAQs

Question: Isn’t homeopathy some new-fangled science?
Answer: No. As a formalized system of healing, homeopathy’s been around since it was introduced by Samuel Hahnemann in 1796, although its roots go back to ancient times.It was one of the first healing systems in place in the U.S. before modern, conventional medicine was even established. So conventional medicine is the “new kid on the block” compared to homeopathy.

Question: How does homeopathy work?
Answer: As a holistic healing system, homeopathic remedies “work by helping the body’s defense system help itself,” according to Drs. Andrew Lockie and Nicola Geddes in their classic book, Homeopathy: The Principles of Practice and Treatment. Homeopathy’s founder, Hahnemann, went on to discover that giving infinitesimally minute traces of substances that could produce harm, if taken at high levels, could trick the body, in a sense, into mobilizing natural defensive or healing responses to completely safe homeopathic tinctures.

Question: So homeopathy can work fine even if we’re eating badly and exposed to high levels of toxins?
Answer: “Anything that prevents the body from functioning properly, for example a poor diet, lack of exercise [. . .] or environmental stresses, gives [homeopathic] remedies an uphill struggle,” note Lockie and Geddes, and so those obstacles “require attention.”

Question: Are homeopathics a quick fix?
Answer: No. “Although homeopathy works very quickly in common, everyday complaints, it is not” an instant fix, say Lockie and Geddes, and requires us to “stick to a plan of action—the reward for this is a greater sense of well-being, energy and resistance to” unhealth.


“I have tried many diet products for losing weight, so when I was told about this product I approached it with the same skepticism as I did all other products. After using this product for the first week I lost 5 lbs. and this kept my motivation to lose more. After a month of using the product for about a month I lost 20 lbs. and have kept it off for a year. I love this product and want to continue again to lose more weight in the future.”* - Shondell

Program Part 2:


The second part of the program is BodyHealth’s PerfectAmino supplement to ensure you get enough protein, while on the low-calorie diet.

Protein is essential for optimum health, yet most assume they are getting enough from food. So why the need for an amino acid supplement?

The simple answer is that—yes, you do get good quality from foods such as eggs, meat, fish and nuts but much of the protein in food is not converted into body protein—it just makes waste that the body has to get rid of along with all of those extra calories.

Most people don’t get enough protein without realizing it—it plays out as a nagging injury that won’t heal in the athlete, or brittle bones in menopausal women or constant colds in a child.

Protein deficiency is very often something you just aren't aware of and often neither is your doctor. Not getting enough protein may mean low hormones, or a low immune system and risk of disease.

9 Benefits of Regular Exercise

Being physically active has a whole bunch of benefits:

  1. Builds confidence.

  2. Gives you more energy

  3. Helps you fall asleep more quickly and sleep more soundly.

  4. Helps you to relax and handle stress better.

  5. Makes your muscles stronger and keeps your joints in good shape.

  6. Provides a fun way to share time with friends and family.

  7. Reduces the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and cancers such as breast, uterus and colon.

  8. Slows bone loss.

  9. Strengthens your lungs and helps them to work better.

Plus, if you take advantage of the whole Optimum Weight Management Program diet plan, you will be consuming fewer calories so you’ll want to make sure that you’re getting the optimal levels of nutrients.*

So what’s the solution? PerfectAmino is an amino acid supplement that’s 99% utilized by the body to make protein. No other form of protein comes close!* And ... it has virtually zero calories!

PerfectAmino contains the eight essential amino acids the body needs to support and maintain its muscular, skeletal, enzymatic, and hormonal systems. The essential amino acids in PerfectAmino are in the exact proportions needed for maximum utilization by the body.*


“I’ve used [PerfectAmino] for years and counted on it to help me consistently train and race with good results. The new BodyHealth PerfectAmino continues to give me that performance/recovery edge and it’s far more economical – a big plus.” - Cherie Gruenfeld - 12x World Ironman Champion

Exercise: How much?

Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate physical activity most days for overall health and to reduce the risk of disease. To help manage body weight and prevent gradual weight re-gain, shoot for 60 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity most days of the week. You should know that you can break up the amount of time that you do physical activity, such as 15 minutes at a pop. If you haven't been physically active for a long time, then don't let that hold you back. Start slowly and increase your activity gradually. For example, start walking for 10–15 minutes three times a week, then gradually build up.

Program Part 3:

Complete Multi + Liver Detox Support

The third part of our weight-management program is BodyHealth’s Complete Multi, a multivitamin/multimineral/antioxidant supplement which gives your body extra nutrition to keep it running smoothly.*

Toxins are stored in your body fat, so when fat is lost through dieting, the liver can turn into a dumping ground for those toxins. BodyHealth Complete Multi gently helps to get rid of toxins by aiding the liver in its natural detoxification process.*

All-in-One Solution for Complete Nutrition

In this age of mass-processed foods, many of us are worried that we’re not getting enough nutrients to be healthy.

Stress and environmental toxins also help to quickly deplete the nutrients that we do take in. And yet the question of choosing the correct multi-vitamin is a complex one.

Where do you begin? What might you be lacking? How do you rate the quality of one multi-vitamin against another?

Well here is your all-in-one answer – BodyHealth Complete Multi + Liver Detox Support Multi, the most comprehensive source of nutrients that comes complete with a challenge – see if you can find a better multi-vitamin!*

BodyHealth Complete Multi provides:

  • A base of 16 wholefood organic fruit and vegetable concentrates
  • Multiple vitamins and minerals to boost potency
  • Complete liver detox support
  • Best antioxidant profile


In summary, there are 3 parts to the Optimum Weight Management program, which is most effective when combined with a low-calorie diet and some exercise:

  1. Optimum Weight Management Formula drops to re-set the hypothalamus and reduce cravings.
  2. PerfectAmino to help you maintain protein intake so that you don’t lose muscle mass while losing weight.
  3. Complete Multi to help you maintain your daily vital nutrients.

Here is a video of Dr. David Minkoff explaining more about the program:


“I love, love this diet!! If you are totally DONE with being over weight & ready to get out the big guns, this program is for you. It works fast. It is hard core, but yet, a no brainer. I am at the end of my 3rd session. I have lost a total of 92 pounds!! GONE!! Not only is it awsome for weight loss, but it also resets your hypothalamus. This is the portion of your brain that controls your hunger among other things. So returning to a normal, natural appetite, is wonderful. This program (mostly the drops) attacks your fat. I was so amazed & impressed to see my post menopause waistline disappear completely! AWESOME program! I would HIGHLY recommend it!” - Cindy
