Drastically Reducing Calories May Lengthen Your Life
I ran into something interesting an article from on the NatualNews.com website by Deanna Dean from www.CalorieRestriction.org that had some great information for you to think about. I do believe eating less will help you to have less health problems that are cause from being overweight. In addition, to this lowering your calorie intake, if you start cutting back on sugars and white flours help as well. Don’t over indulge in eating too much meat either, because that has been proven to do more harm than good. My book called 8 Easy Steps to Create the Body You’ve Always Wanted goes over foods that burn calories, foods that help you from aging, foods that can reduce wrinkles. I am not too familiar with the CR diet but from what I can see, it reminds me of the Mediterranean Diet or the Omega Diet. There are so many diets out there that we get bombarded by and to be honest cutting your calorie intake and your sugars, your white starches, increase your omega 3’s, and fruits and veggies. In addition, eating your proteins first thing in the morning or at a meal will help you lose weight and get proper exercise. That is why I like my protein shake because I am in a rush some morning and I just quickly in a shaker container mix my Isagenix shake and I am full until lunchtime. This works perfect for me being a busy single mom that is on the go all the time.
There is a growing body of believers, especially longevity-seeking Baby Boomers, who believe that by drastically limiting the amount of food they consume, they will slow the aging process and extend their life. It's a radical, controversial premise; the less you eat, the longer you'll live. I am not sure you should go to this extreme because I believe too much of anything and too little of anything can be harmful in the end.
CR, calorie restriction, doesn't mean deprivation or starvation, but it does require eating fewer calories than the body is accustomed to receiving and it flies in the face of conventional recommended daily calorie intake guidelines. That is why I think doing the Isagenix shake is even healthier because of the reduce calorie and all the notorious and vitamins in the shakes. The best thing is you don’t feel hungry. Trying to lower your calorie count should be a gradual change too. You will be in pain going from one extreme to another. I think each day make a change. This is for overall health not just weight loss. You can maintain your perfect weight and have less health problems down the road. You will not need to buy prescriptions because you will not need them. Just think of all the money you will save by just cutting back on what you eat. Your food cost will be a twenty or thirty percent less and you will not have doctor bills and high prescription costs.
Typical diets focus on weight loss, but CR is a different kind of diet that reduces long-term calorie intake and promotes the consumption of nutrient dense foods. This pursuit holds the elusive promise of lengthening the human life span, and even -- as some submit -- immortality. I believe portion control besides cutting back on all the sugars would help most people reduce weight fairly quickly. Of course, you need to exercise and drink plenty of water.
There are many compelling arguments to support the longevity issue, but advocates believe that at the very least, following CR precepts will enhance your health right now by minimizing body fat, inhibiting cell mutation, lowering blood glucose levels, decreasing inflammation, activating brain-alertness, promoting deep restful sleep, increasing energy levels and creating a more youthful biological age. I know with drinking a protein shakes and eating one to two lower calorie meals a day.
Recent studies from the National Institute on Aging, Harvard University, and Washington University concur and say that a calorie-restricted diet includes many benefits, one of them being extending human life. Lab studies dating back to the thirties show that mice and all sorts of laboratory critters, when placed on a severely restricted diet, lived fifty percent longer than the oldest members of their peer community.
Biosphere 2 seemed like a study out of a science fiction novel; nevertheless, it proved an unintended point. In 1991 in the Arizona desert, eight scientists sealed themselves inside an airtight terrarium to prove they could live isolated for two years in a self-sustained ecosystem. Something went terribly wrong and they realized they couldn't grow enough food for them to survive the two years. Without Roy Walford, a UCLA pathologist and team physician, the entire team would have starved to death, but fortuitously he had been studying calorie restriction for decades and was able to parse their meager food supply thereby drastically cutting their calories for the duration of the experiment. You would think when they emerged from their habitat they would be gaunt, pasty and in need of medical help; quite the opposite. They were healthier in almost every respect than when they had sealed themselves in two years prior. Dr. Walford later wrote a book, Beyond the 120-Year Diet: How to Double Your Vital Years.
While there is no specified meal plan with CR, the recommendation is to eat twenty to thirty percent less than accepted conventional recommendations for healthy calorie intake. Sugar, saturated fats, and most dairy products are shunned. Fruits, vegetables, and whole grains are the mainstay foods, which make up the bulk of the diet, but savvy people already know that these particular foods are the ones hallowed as the basis of a healthy diet anyway.
Be forewarned though lest you rush to throw everything out in your refrigerator. It has been shown that without an accompanying healthy lifestyle, including exercise in particular, strict calorie restriction can lead to loss of bone density. A one year study of 46 participants at Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, conducted by Dennis T. Villareal M.D. revealed that individuals in the CR group not only lost weight, but also lost an average of 2.2% of their bone density in the lower spine, 2.2% at the hip and 2.1% at the top of the femur, all high risk areas for fracture. An article in the Archives of Internal Medicine - JAMA, states that without exercise, restricting calories may lead to bone density loss.
This would seem to be the green light; if we exercise and restrict calories maybe then we can live forever, but not so. Other studies have shown that if people with very little body fat drastically cut calories they can actually do more harm than good to their health. Therefore, we have to count every calorie, know if our body fat is appropriate, exercise enough to keep our bones strong -- then it could be worth it.
The fountain of youth, living forever; the temptation to jump on board is tantalizing. The prudent thing to do is proceed with caution, understand the positives and negatives, and keep a discerning mind. It might be wonderful to live a long life, but not if it's one burdened by osteoporosis and fractured bones.
Over all I do believe that lowering, your calorie intake will help you live longer and healthier lives. I am not saying do a drastic change just a gradual change by each week lower the amount you eat. Americans eat far too much at each meal. I like eating half of my meals and eating snacks throughout the day.

Your choices are important—
On the surface, today is another Shake Day - but it's really much more than that. Today I am making choices to help remove the barriers that stop me from experiencing peak health and wellness.
Since I have been on the 30-Day System, I know my body has been nourished with nutrients that Isagenix master formulator selected to strengthen my body from the inside out. The targeted nutrients in Isagenix® products bridge the gap between the low level of nourishment in regular food and the high level necessary to attain optimum health.
Over-farming, pesticides and poor food choices have created an incredible burden on our health. The rising obesity epidemic speaks more to the lack of proper nourishment than gluttony or lack of discipline.
If a body isn't receiving the nutrients it needs, it will attempt to get more nutrients by triggering food cravings and hunger pangs. This can lead to overeating, which in turn contributes to obesity and poor health.
With each Shake and Cleanse Day, you are providing your body with nutrients designed to help you reach your best possible health. You are retraining your body to be hungry only when it requires nutrition.
Every moment that you're on the Cleansing and Fat Burning System contributes to your long-term health and success.
Drink IsaLean® Shake.
Take 1 Natural Accelerator™. Eat a healthy snack, if desired—1 - 2 IsaDelight™,1 Isagenix Snacks!™, small organic apple or 5 - 6 unsalted almonds.
Healthy 400 - 600 calorie meal.
Take 1 Natural Accelerator™. Eat a healthy snack, if desired.
Drink IsaLean® Shake.
Drink water—at least half your body weight in ounces.
Drink one to two ounces of Ionix® Supreme.
Take 1 to 2 capsules of IsaFlush!®.
Mom Knows Best...
Mom always said, "Eat your veggies." She might not have known about antioxidants, but they're a big reason why she was right.
Antioxidants are substances that help protect or repair damage to cells from "free radicals," which are formed when the body burns oxygen forenergy. They can boost the immune system and may help fight diseases, including cancer.
Vitamins A, C and E, beta carotene (the stuff in carrots), lycopene (found inred fruits and veggies such as tomatoes and watermelon), lutein (in leafygreens and egg yolks) and selenium (found in a variety of foods) are some antioxidants. If you don't always follow mom's advice, nutritional supplements can help you bridge the gap.

I am sorry, I haven't had time to blog about my Isagenix journey in the last couple of weeks. I am still on the program and going strong...
Yes, that is right. I am still at it. I even went on vacation and brought little Isagenix travel shake packets that were perfect to travel with. I have this Isagenix Shaker container that stirs/ whips up my shakes. It was perfect to bring. My girls and I went to Disneyland and I would have a shake every morning for breakfast and meal replacement bar for lunch. They have several places that have fruit cups, salads, and the hotel we stayed at The Camelot Inn had free breakfast that I used for snacks it was one less thing I had to worry about and my girls enjoyed getting to go and pick out whatever they wanted. The hotel had a lot of fresh fruit that I would get and bring back tomy room for snack time. I would get bananas, apples, and oranges. They also had a market at the hotel and I got nuts for a snack as well. The Isagenix snack were perfect for a sweet treat. This was perfect to do while on vacation and I saved so much money $$$ by doing this that I could get my kids some nice gifts and even have money left over. Boy is the food expensive at places like these.
There was a few times so far that I was having a bad day and foundthat I would go for a bag of chips and I have had a one ice cream when I was onvacation but I still lost two inches and a total of 10 lbs. Most of the time Igrab for an IsaDelight Chocolate and I don't even want the ice creamanymore. I only had a total of 15 to take off. That last five pounds isall I have and I am perfect in a bathing suit, just in time for summer. Woo Hoooo....
From being on Isagenix I don't need to do this often. I got off tracklast year and gained 15 extra pounds because of my long hours of working andnot getting enough sleep and exercise. Well, I am back on track.
Here is a Few Tips about Emotional Eating
People who are prone toemotional eating consume food to soothe unpleasant emotions, such as anger,anxiety or fear. Plus, chaotic emotions can bring about an almost irresistibleyearning for food.
Because food consumption is tied to emotions rather than fulfilling physical needs, overeating is common.
Medical experts, such as the Mayo Clinic, acknowledge that emotional eating canbe the most difficult component to control for those who want to lose weight. But,there are steps that can help control these difficult urges.
Discover your triggers by writing down what you eat and how you're feeling atthe time.
When you're upset, instead of eating take a walk, talk to a friend or dosomething else to comfort yourself.
Keep healthy snacks in your kitchen so when you reach for something, you'llfind fruit instead of cookies.
The Mayo Clinic also acknowledges that certain foods release a small amount of"mood-elevating" hormones. These foods can help satisfy the urge toeat uncontrollably. One of those foods is chocolate.
According to the Mayo Clinic, "For example, when you eat enticing foods, such as chocolate, your body releases trace amounts of mood- and satisfaction-elevating hormones... Related to this is the simple fact that the pleasure of eating off sets negative emotions."
IsaDelight™ is our healthy chocolate treat that can help reduce emotionaleating urges because it's a pleasure to eat! It's also low in calories andfilled with amino acids and B vitamins that may reduce physical, as well asemotional, cravings for food.
You can get a handle on emotional eating. Identify your eating triggers, findways other than eating to cope with upsetting emotions and keep healthy snacks around, including IsaDelight™!
Here are some Amazing IsaDelight fans
IsaDelight™Stops My Food Cravings!
"I don't know how I got through the day before IsaDelight™. I used to gethungry and tired especially around 4 pm. Two of those happy chocolates stops myfood cravings and boosts my energy.* I'm also dropped down one dresssize!"
Dr. Suzanne H. Sonoma, CA
My Mood Mellows Right Out
"I haven't felt this good in 20 years.* After two pieces of IsaDelight™ -my whole body relaxes and my mood mellows right out. I loved this chocolate somuch I gave it to all my office staff. This is the happiest medical office intown!"
Dr. Robert B. Stuart, FL

The Day After.....
After cleansing, I feel very energetic and light on my feet. I am not working out today knowing that I need to gradually work in to my normal program after cleansing. I just took the dog on a long walk this evening.My pants are very loose. I will have to messure myself. I know I have lost a couple of inches already.
After cleansing if find it not put any more impurities into mybody. It's time to get serious and decrease the non-nutritional foods anddrinks that you haven't yet eliminated from my daily diet.
Things like sugary drinks or even diet soda or coffee, today would be an ideal time to quit. If you can’t hand quitting then drastically reduce your intake.By changing my habits now, it will help me make my upcoming Cleanse Day easierto complete and I will feel better, lose more weight quicker, and just overall be healthier.
I have already replaced my morning coffee to an herbal tea called Good Earth, Sweet & Spicy tea. This tea I don’t even need honey in because of the sweet spices of cinnamon. It tastes so yummy. I got four boxes at Costco for $6. and some change. This tea has cinnamon in it, which balance your blood sugar. So, if you replace your morning coffee with herbal tea or water. Iced herbal tea is a great substitute for soda this GoodEarth tea is really good cold too. In addtion to it being great for this summer, I do love drinking plain water most of the time. If pure water is too plain, add a squeeze of organic lemon or orange for a subtle flavor and fragrance. I love doing this to my water to make it more exciting when I need something else besides plain pure water.
Tomorrow I will be going to the gym to do Pilates workout. This is an ideal exercise for Everyone. It is a popular fitness trend, so unless you’ve been living on another planet you’ve heard of it-Pilates. It’s an enduring trend because it’s ideal for beginning and experienced exercisers alike. It’slow-impact. Convenient and easily modified to any fitness level.
Core strength, flexibility and awareness of the body are emphasized in Pilates.
Pilates practitioners have testified to:
Get moving our bodies are made to move.

Tips on Carefree Cleansing

Well, it is Friday and I have been a pretty good girl.
Tomorrow is my birthday and I plan on going out to Olive Garden with friends and my daughters for dinner. It will be hard to behave myself on my birthday with everyone wanting to buy me drinks, desserts, and a big meal, but I will only 1/2 of the servings or maybe even 1/4 depending on how big it is. Someplaces just serve way too much food, but for people like me that have been eating less, our stomach is shrunk it makes about two to three meals for us.Yes, you can get full off of 1/2 of a meal after doing this diet. Hey, I am a Cheap Date! My dessert will be split with everyone at the table; yes I will have a few bites of my birthday Ice cream Gelato then pass it around.
I can tell my stomach is getting smaller now because of this yummy diet my pants are fitting loser. I can eat about half of what they serve you and be full. So, portion control will help here and it is only one meal. Splurging once a week will not hurt you on a diet. Sunday I will be doing my first cleanse day and can't wait. I have an easy day planed. I am feeling good on this diet and not deprived of anything. Shoot, I can even have chocolate. I have these yummy Isa Chocolates that are just wonderful and the Isa Snacks taste like cake batter so if I am ever craving sweets like I was earlier todayI just have one of those treats then I am not craving anything anymore. Those chocolates are amazing what do they have in them that stops you from craving throughout the day. Amazing!
Drink plenty of water every day —
I am getting ready to prepare for my first cleanse day on Sunday. Here is something important tips.
Let's discuss theimportance of water in helping you cleanse impurities and support weight loss.
Your body gets rid of impurities in several different ways: through elimination, perspiration and breath (that's why cardiovascular exercise isessential to Nutritional Cleansing!). Water is important to cleansing for theobvious reason - it helps your body remove impurities naturally.
Your body is about two-thirds water. When you don't get enough water, you become dehydrated. Dehydrated cells don't function as well as hydrated cells.If they aren't working properly, then your cells may not be removing impurities efficiently, which affects the body's overall health.
Water is also important to weight loss. A build up of impurities in your body may affect how well your metabolism works. Water can also help quell hungerpangs for short periods of time.
The bottom-line is you must drink adequate amounts of water each and everyday. A general way to calculate your daily requirement of water in ounces is tocut your body weight in half. A person who is 150 pounds should drink 75 ounces of water, while a 200-pound person should drink 100 ounces.
If you exercise vigorously or live in a very hot region, your water requirementsmight be even higher.
Keep a water bottle with you at all times - in the car, at work and alwayswhile exercising. Make a conscious effort to drink from your bottle every 10 -15 minutes, even if you're not thirsty. Some experts believe that when you experience thirst, you're already dehydrated. So, drink continuously throughout the day.
If you are wondering what diet I am on take a look at this website http://chef_lindag.isagenix.com/us/en/home.dhtml
Here is what a typical day looks like
Drink IsaLean® Shake with banana, blueberries and strawberries
Take 1 Natural Accelerator™. Eat a healthy snack, if desired—1 - 2 IsaDelight™,1 Isagenix Snacks!™, small organic apple or 5 - 6 unsalted almonds.
Healthy 400 - 600 calorie meal
Take 1 Natural Accelerator™. Eat a healthy snack, if desired.
Drink IsaLean® Shake ot IsaLean Soups
Drink water—at least half your body weight in ounces.
Drink one to two ounces of Ionix® Supreme.
Take 1 to 2 capsules of IsaFlush!®. Which these products come with the 30 day cleansing system. The shakes are so yummy that my kids ask for them every morning as well.

I had a Banana & Stawberry Shake with Vanilla and Chocolate this morning. My goodness that was good. My girls enjoyed it too. I let them split one with toast and they were full off drinking half. I feel really good this morning and I can tell it has a lot of vitimins that my body needs. I take a multi vitimin but this is extra plus with the matabolisim excelarator pills make you fell good.
My task for today!
I am going to build my cleansing support system. I am spend time with people that I care about and ask them to help me achieve my health and weight loss goals.
Here is the things to do list if you are getting ready to do a program:
First, I need to do is make list of all of the people who influence my behavior - friends, family and co-workers. If you haven't told them about your Nutritional Cleansing plans, tell them today. Even though we're confident you can make it on your own, it's easier when you have the support of people who care about you.
When you discuss your plans with your support team we suggest covering these points:
If friends or family members have questions about the process, it may be helpful to show them the products and System Guide when they arrive. As your support team gains understanding of the process, they're better equipped to help you - and, they may even decide to join you! Which will make life easier when you have a friend to cleanse with and help keep each other on track.
My girls and dog are going out doing my run-walking tonight. Which we run for a short distance and walk for the same distance then run and walk. Before you know it we will be running the hole mile. Baby step with my babies that are 7 and 9 years old. My dog can use the exercise too. I hope the weather holds up or we will do some exercising inside. Get creative is what I say. Put some music on and dance! Woo hooo....

So I am embarking on a very exciting journey —
Being a Single Mom and working two jobs, plus trying to do any hobbies that I want to do. Takes really good scheduling and a lot of energy most of the time I don't have time to workout as much as I want too or as much as I need too. Does this sound familar? If only there were 30 hours in a day.
I still remember “the moment.” That was a painful moment not being able to fit into my white, classy jeans. These jeans were the coolest, with diamond-studded pockets. I could put on a nice, classy sweater with them and then some low or high heels, depending on my mood. I remember the day so clearly; I was going to go to my husband's (which is my ex now) boss's dinner party, and I wanted to look especially nice. This was a big deal going to your boss's house for a party. Racing home from work that evening, I knew what I was going to wear.
Well, after trying to jump into these jeans quickly, I thought as I struggled to pull them up, “What is wrong with these pants?” Suddenly, an awful feeling came over me. They felt too tight. How could this be? Did these darn pants shrink? They were stretch jeans, and after lying on the bed and wrestling with them to get them up, after holding my breath and sucking in my stomach, I got them to zip up. After wrestling on the bed, my hair was messed up, and the jeans just looked awful. They looked painted on. I looked in terror in the mirror. I could not breathe, and the parts that were showing were not very"lady like,” if you know what I mean. I could not go out in public, showing the outline of my feminine parts and with a bulge hanging over the top of my pants from my stomach. I could not suck in my stomach while trying to sit down all night. I thought to myself, “I look like a streetwalker in these jeans.”I am so surprised that they did not rip after I tried to sit down in them. All I know is that I almost passed out from the pain from my pants being too tight around my waist when I did sit down.
I thought to myself, “Oh no! What do I do now?” Now I have to come up with a plan of attack, to get the darn, painted pants off. Fighting and messing up my hair from rolling on the bed again, I managed to get one leg out. I remember thinking to myself, that these darn pants were even tight on my ankles! After angrily tossing the streetwalker pants across the room, I just put my work pants back on and fixed my hair again, then added a nice sweater, and I was depressed that whole evening because I could not look like the “Hot, Classy Lady” he married.
What happened to my nice, thin body? Where did all these extra inches come from? That evening at the party, his boss had a scale in the bathroom. I jumped on the scale, hoping no one could hear me. What! I gained 11 pounds! I never gain weight! That was our first year of marriage, and shortly after that, I started to put two and two together. Then, after having kids, I gained 20 pounds with each child. Thank goodness, I only have two, so that was an extra 40 pounds. Yes, I was fat and happy. Well, breast-feeding helped me lose some of the baby fat, but being around a man that ate junk all the time and was as skinny as a rail, started to piss me off! He was a very thin, but a somewhat muscular man, and he could eat anything he wanted without gaining anounce. At first, I was this way, but it caught up with me.
I wanted to be that naturally thin person once again. Well,it was not easy trying to lose this weight. I remember what I did to stay naturally thin, and I ate anything I wanted, but I ate like a bird. I had ahard time eating a kid's meal. They serve way too much food on our dinner plates. Therefore, I started cutting back. I drank more water, and I watched my fat, but I did not want to cut it out totally. I increased my Omega 3 fat to help keep my skin glowing and wrinkle free, and exercised more. I then stopped drinking coffee and switched to green tea. This one was hard. I almost could not do it. Now I cannot drink coffee, because to my surprise, it does not taste good anymore. I then introduced cleansing once again into my diet. I then developed my weight loss plan that is in my book then I came in contact with the best cleansing company I have found "Isagenix". Now I am that naturally thin person but have the healthy skin and a nice glow about me. Thanks to 8 Easy Steps to Create the Body You've Always Wanted book and Isagenix products.
It is spring time and summer is right around the corner... and so is that bathing suit. I am wanting to burn off some extra winter weight and the quickest way to do that is to do my 8 Easy Steps to Create the Body You've Always Wanted and the Isagenix 30 Day Fat Burining System. I am not just trying to sell this product or my book. I am just stating a fact. This is how I have stayed thin for years now, plus have the energy and the great health to do all that is on my to do list. So, I am starting My 30 Day Isagenix Cleanse and my Easy Weight Loss program that is in my book which has step-by-step program with receipts. I will be bloging about it and giving details on my progress.
I know that this journey will help me experience vibrant health, boundless energy and healthy weight loss. I can't wait and look forward to everyones reaction on how clear my faces is, how nice I look in my outfits, and people saying your never have a weight problem. Well, this is my secrete I stay on this program and look like I am 15 years younger.
Here are some tips on doing the cleanse program
You might wish to record your goals and your results in a daily journal.
If you consume unhealthy foods, today is the day to begin reducing your in take of caffeine, sugar, fatty and processed foods. Start this process by gradually cutting back on nutritionally deficient foods:
· If you're going out to lunch with co-workers, skip the cheeseburger and enjoy a grilled chicken salad with only half the dressing you normally use.
