Let's get right to the point. It's Fiber.
Too bad we’re not getting nearly enough.
One study titled "Trends in dietary fiber intake in the United States, 1999-2008," published in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics , found the average person gets about 15 grams of fiber a day, well below the 25-38 grams recommended adequate intake for adults.
Among its numerous benefits, fiber can help you lose weight. That's because it helps slow down stomach emptying so you feel fuller longer.
Those are among the reasons I call fiber a magic bullet for fast, lasting fat loss. A recent study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine supports my theory.
Researchers asked 240 participants to either eat fewer calories and follow the American Heart Association's diet or simply get more dietary fiber.
One year later, the fiber folks lost an average of 4.6 pounds , whereas the reduced-calorie group lost an average of six pounds. Impressive, considering the fiber group made no other dietary modifications.
To get fast, lasting fat loss and fiber's other benefits, I want you to get 50 grams of fiber daily. Yes, 50.
Please don't do this all at once. Gradually increase your intake five grams a week until you've met that quota. I've got seven easy ways to easily increase fiber intake:
A protein shake becomes my favorite way to increase fiber intake, which provides you steady, sustained energy all morning. Adding avocado, frozen raspberries, raw kale (you won't taste it), and freshly ground flaxseed or E xtra Fiber to my Paleo - or plant-based protein powder provides about 15 - 20 grams of fiber. Do one of these once or twice daily and you've almost hit your 50-gram quota.
OK everybody. Let's head out to the supermarket.

What is Prerejuvenation? Prejuvenation is being proactive about your skin - not reactive. Makes sense, right? Its much easier to maintain and slow down the aging skin process versus correcting skin that already has alot of sundamage and collagen loss. The concept is to start treatments before there is an issue (as to prevent aging skin) so that it will prolong more aggressive treatments for later in your life. Again..makes sense, right? So what should you do? There are many short, no
downtime procedures that are ideal PreRejuvenation treatments.
Remember -Be Proactive not Reactive.
Here's what we recommend: Muscle Relaxers: Botox, Dysport etc, Chemical peels, Fillers, Laser Collagen Stimulation and a Medical Grade Skin Care regiment.
: Millions of people recognize the name Botox, Dysport etc. These wrinkle reduction injections is a quick virtually painless treatment that has no downtime and prevents the muscle from becoming stronger and thus increasing the wrinkle depth. Common areas to begin Botox is crows feet,
frown lines (glabella) and forehead lines. Treating these
areas before lines are “etched in” is
the basic concept of PreRujvenation.
: Dermal fillers made from hyaluronic
acid (HA) are used to improve the minor volume loss which occurs with
age. Subtle enhancements can be added to
the mid cheek and around the eye to delay premature volume
loss. HA fillers are also used to plump up the lips to create a youthful
Chemical Peels or Light Laser Peel : Exfoliate and reverse early sun damage. Rrenews the texture and pigmentation and leaves a youthful and glowing quality to the skin.
LaserCollagen Stimulation: This no downtime, non-invasive laser treatments uses radio-frequency to provide deep skin penetration which stimulates collagen and prevents it from going dormant. Additionally, the intense heat retracts skin to maintain taunt, tight skin.
Medical Grade Skin Care Products
: Your body needs to drink water. Your skin needs nutrients to maintain healthy skin cells. Great skin care is imperative to the foundation of great skin. Its important to use some type of Retin A or Retinol for maintaining
youthful skin. A good product line with small particles for easy penetration is ideal. These products lead to increased turnover of the skin
cells (pigmentation problems), thicken the
skin, and create more hydrated skin. Of course moisturizer and sun block is or should be on your daily regiment. We also highly recommended applying the newest addition to a product line: stem cell
growth factors are important to the skin to reverse the aging process.
