WHY AM I SO HUNGRY?
Almost everyone wants to lose
weight. Why is it so hard and is there
anything that really helps?
With 34 years in the fitness business, I’ve seen many people
struggle with their weight. Fat is now a national health crisis.
Studying nutrition in depth for 25 years, I had never found
anything that made a significant difference in one of the most
critical issues in winning the war against fat – hunger. When
you’re hungry, you just can’t resist forever. You may last a
week or two from sheer willpower, but finally the hunger
overwhelms you and you give in and in and in and in . . .
I truly believe that we have found a lasting solution
We eat foods that are so low on the nutritional scale,
that our cells are literally starving for nutrients (vitamins,
minerals, and phytonutrients.) So they send the message
to keep eating. And boy, do we! But we keep making
poor choices. We keep filling our gut with foods that
taste great, but have little or no substance. So we keep
eating and eating, but our bodies are screaming, “I
can’t get no sat..is..fac..tion.” What if you could
supply the body with great nutrition? How would the
body respond? I’m seeing it happen before my very eyes.
People that have struggled for years, are finally losing
weight. The cravings are under control. The plateaus are
dissolving. This truly is the best help to weight loss that I
have seen in 34 years of training clients.
How does Juice Plus+ help with
weight loss? First of all, Juice Plus+ is not
a weight loss product per se. It is a “give your
body the nourishment it needs” product. The
weight control comes as a by-product of getting
healthier. If you do the right things, you won’t
have to worry about your weight.
First step: Be consistent with the capsules. This
is the foundation to your nutritional satisfaction. You
are giving your cells the nutritional essence of 17 fruits,
vegetables, and grains and 9 berries and fruits of the
vine… estimated as well over 13,000 phytonutrients! If
you miss a dose take it as soon as possible (even if you
have to double up the next day!) Keep extras with you,
in your purse, your briefcase, your office. Until we give
our bodies the nutrients they need to function optimally,
our bodies are going to keep telling us to eat. You decide
what to put in your mouth. Decide right now to be
very consistent with blessing your body with 25 fruits,
vegetables, and berries everyday. And please remember, as
more and more of your cells are replaced with cells made
with great nutrition, your cravings will decrease.
Also, do you know what tells your body you’ve eaten
enough at any given meal? It’s when enough glucose
(sugar) gets into your cells, the cells send a message to the
brain to turn off the hunger drive. Now here’s the problem.
Insulin transports the glucose into your cells. Ever hear
of insulin resistance? It’s at epidemic proportions. If your
cell is resistant to allowing the insulin in, you can’t get
the glucose in, so you keep eating way past the amount
that should have made you full.
Juice Plus+ capsules not only help give you nutrient
satisfaction, but they contain soluble fiber. This is the
fiber most lacking in our Standard American Diet (SAD).
This fiber has been shown to be a glucose transporter. In
other words, it can help get your food into your cell! So
the cells can finally tell the brain, “I’m Full!” There are
most likely other nutrients also involved in this process,
nutrients found in fruit/veg and berries.
The capsules also contain live enzymes and probiotics, helping you to digest your food….you have to digest it to absorb it! This is also a reason many people notice improvement in gastrointestinal issues soon after taking Juice Plus+. (Be aware that the first couple of weeks on Juice Plus+ the body may go through some mild and gentle “cleansing.” This is healthy and a necessary step toward better health! Welcome this cleansing!)
Second step: The Juice Plus Complete
Smoothie. This delicious smoothie mix is a wise choice,
loaded with hard to find nutrition! – A great balance
– half protein (unique water-washed, NON-GMO
soy, peas, chickpeas, tofu, rice, and algae!) and half
complex carbohydrates (Ancient grains- organic quinoa,
amaranth, and millet, broccoli sprouts, alfalfa sprouts
and radish sprouts, pumpkin, pomegranate, spirulina
and yucca.) The Complete is deliciously sweetened with
stevia, monkfruit and organic cane sugar (only 8 grams of
low glycemic sugars per 100 cal), almost 7 grams of fiber
and almost no fat! And it (as all our products) is gluten
free. WOW, what a nutrient dense smoothie!!!! Want to
really satisfy your body long-term? Give it protein and
complex carbohydrates from superior food sources,
critical to health, body fuel, and hunger satisfaction.
Do you know that a portion of the cells in your
brain will only use carbohydrates as fuel. If you are on an
extremely low carb diet, your brain will cannibalize itself
for the carbs that it needs. Eliminating the white sugars,
flours, overly processed foods, is great. But eliminating
your fruits and vegetables is dangerous. Juice Plus+ gives
you the nutrients of 17 fruits, vegetables, and grains (25
if you are also taking Vineyard Blend) without all the
If you are serious about returning your body to a
healthy weight, now and for life, here is the plan: Two
Orchard Blends/Two Garden Blends and Two
Vineyards per day. (With plenty of water!) *The
Nemour’s Children’s Clinic study, published in July 2012,
showed that taking the capsules reduced abdominal body
mass index (fat!) and lowered insulin resistance in boys 8-10
years of age. This is fantastic news! (see my juice plus website
for more info).
One JP+ Complete Smoothie per day. You
will want the nutritional power of the shake daily. Use it
at lunch or dinner, whichever suits your lifestyle. When
you first start on the Complete, it’s normal to feel a little
like you “want to chew something”…go ahead and eat
something healthy with it (an apple, a light sandwich,
etc.) Soon, as your body starts getting more satisfied, you’ll find the shake totally filling.
If you really want to drop weight faster, there is
another plan: THE 2 SHAKE DAY. On the 2 shake day,
enjoy the Complete Smoothie at breakfast and also at
lunch or dinner. Make sure your 3rd meal is filled with
fruits/veg, lean protein, whole grains.
Also, you want to fuel your body at regular intervals.
2 times/day eat a small healthy snack, like a piece of fruit
and a very small handful of almonds or walnuts. You’ll
fuel your body and add Omega 3’s at the same time!
And here is a really important factor in your success,
try very hard to not eat after 7 p.m. If you feel you must
eat, then something light and healthy. What you eat 3
hours or so before you go to bed will stick to you like
peanut butter! What most people don’t realize is that
eating late at night will also reduce your body’s ability
to release HGH (human growth hormone.) HGH slows
down the aging process. Who wants to age faster, fall
apart younger? Don’t eat late at night! Your body will
love you for it. And as you become more nutritionally
complete, this will get easier too.
Remember, what we are striving for is nutritional
satisfaction. These products are important if you really
desire long-term success. And please remember, as more
and more of your cells are replaced with cells made with
great nutrition, your cravings will change. The longer you
are on Juice Plus+ the more obvious the difference will
be to you. In 4 months, all of your red blood cells will
be replaced. In one year, most of your body ( approx.20
trillion cells) will be re-made. Make sure you are giving
your body the best building blocks possible.
And an interesting note for athletes: There are 5 plant
proteins in Complete. Variety helps your body get a better
balance of amino acids. One of these is low-processed soy
which IS a complete protein and contains all the essential
amino acids. You just want to be sure your soy source
is non-GMO and processed without chemicals (as is
the soy in Complete). Soy is rich in both arginine and
glutamine. Arginine helps muscle formation, therefore it
is extremely helpful in forming new muscle tissue. And
because soy is plant based, it is a great for alternative to
whey protein for anyone allergic to dairy (whey can often
cause gastrointestinal distress), or for those who prefer
not to consume dairy for other reasons.
So take your JP+ Capsules or Chewables consistently,
drink your Complete nutrient dense smoothie daily…
and get satisfied!
