Weight-loss and Activity (2 pages)

Weight-loss is the process of reducing excess body weight. Weight-loss should be thought of as a life-changing process. Weight-loss should not be considered a quick-fix, short-term change. Weight-loss requires changing habits, switching from one behavior to another. There are no easy solutions to weight-loss. Weight-loss takes more than a "silver-bullet" weight-loss product. Switching life's behaviors refers to nearly all aspects of life. Making the lifetime weight-loss change may require you to get new friends, to watch less television, to learn about nutrition, to makes some lifetime goals, to master self-control, to spend more time outdoors, to acquire a new hobby, to get a new wardrobe, to watch how much you eat and to get more rest. Weight-loss equals switching behaviors....

Activity is the process of moving the body to do work, exercise, and play. Moving the body does not mean watching TV, sitting at the computer, resting, sleeping or reading. Activity is the means of burning calories consumed and burning body-fat. Activity is a social and psychological enhancement. Activity is not just exercise. Activity can take place at home, at work, while shopping, during recreation, and even while watching TV. Activity means moving more....

The Market Size - Weight-loss and Activity (4 pages)

The market for weight-loss is rapidly becoming a worldwide market. No longer is the overweight-market singularly focused on North America. North Americans adults may need to lose 20-50 pounds, while Japanese want to lose 4 pounds and a European may want to lose only 10 pounds. Regardless of the quantity of weight a person feels they should lose it is still the weight-loss market. Men openly and secretively diet and exercise to look fit and get rid of the perennial gut. Men and women, teenagers, young adults, newlyweds, mothers with children, and retirees of most affluent nations provide you a broad audience for weight-loss....

Statistics in the USA are an indicator of problems stemming from overweight and obesity. The prevalence of human overweight and obesity has increased over the years in both genders, for all age groups, for all racial groups and all educational levels. The percentage of USA adult males overweight is 69% and for adult females is 62%. This means that 2 out of 3 adults are overweight. Now that is a warm market! People are willing to listen to permanent weight-loss solutions....

The Market Need - Lose Weight, Keep it Off and Get Fit (3 pages)

The greatest needs in the weight-loss market are proper claims, science, program flexibility, and activity. Pick up a women's magazine, a fitness magazine or simply watch the weight-loss infomercials and enter the world of confusion. Everyone seems to have the "magic bullet" for weight-loss. "Money back guaranteed", "Call only if you are serious", "No more fad dieting", "No more exercise or dieting", or "This is the greatest breakthrough in scientific history" are common claims to attract customers. There definitely is confusion throughout the weight-loss market. People don't know who to trust anymore, after so many failed attempts on different products to lose weight. They are looking for experienced direction to escape the confusion that perpetually fogs the weight-loss market....

Exercise your mind: What are some common problems with most weight-loss products and programs?





The Market Solution - Hydroxycitric Acid and 5-Step Switch-to-get-Fit Program (4 pages)

The Solution

Hydroxycitric acid supplementation and the 5-Step Switch-to-get-Fit Program can help you, your family, your friends, and your neighbors succeed with lifetime weight-loss and physical fitness. Super CitriMax hydroxycitric acid acts to turn "OFF" two important biological "switches" - fatty acid synthesis/storage and glycogen breakdown....

There are thousands and millions of biological switches functioning every second within your body chemistry. When there is a need for a specific biochemical within the body, biological switches are turned "ON" to produce that biochemical from nutrients. The body turns biological switches "OFF" when the need to produce this biochemical is not longer required. The body assumes that when it is feed too much (overeating) that there is going to be a famine. In order to prepare for this famine, the BioSwitches remain "ON" to convert the excess nutrients into "condensed long-term energy storage" - we call it body fat....

The 5-Step Switch-to-get-Fit Program

The 5-Step Switch-to-get-Fit Program helps you take control of your lifestyle, accelerate weight-loss and stabilize weight-maintenance. The 5-Step Switch-to-get-Fit Program turns "ON" or "OFF" more of the thousands of BioSwitches that promote fat-burning instead of body-fat storage. The 5-Step Switch-to-get-Fit Program will help you succeed with your goals. Following the 5-Step Switch-to-get-Fit Program will guarantee you better success than you have ever experienced....

This is not a 2-week weight-reduction program "as seen on TV". This is not a fad diet. This is not a short-term weight-loss program. The 5-Step Switch-to-get-Fit Program is a life-changing program. It is all about switching attitudes, switching behaviors, switching habits, and switching lifestyles. Coworkers and friends will begin to see immediate changes. Some changes will slowly appear so that few people will notice, but eventually they will. Start the 5-Step Switch-to-get-Fit Program with one goal in mind - "I am making changes and not returning to my old self...."

How Hydroxycitric Acid Reverses Biological Switches (4 pages)

Garcinia cambogia contains high concentrations of hydroxycitric acid (HCA). Garcinia cambogia, a small yellow-orange tree fruit from Southern India. Natural hydroxycitric acid, in its active, patent-pending Super CitriMax form is a concentrated water-soluble extract from Garcinia cambogia.

The Mechanism

(-)-Hydroxycitric acid affects the biochemical action of ATP-citrate synthase in the body. When influenced by Hydroxycitric acid, ATP-citrate synthase (also referred to as ATP citrate lyase) ceases to synthesize fats, yet continues to generate energy. When switched "OFF", HCA effectively blocks the conversion of starchy and sugary foods into body fat....

Chromium and Vanadium Cofactors Influence Weight-loss (4 pages)

Chromium is essential for the transport of glucose, one of the body's energy currencies, into cells. Chromium is necessary for insulin action (metabolism of glucose). Chromium was first identified as a component of the "glucose-tolerance factor" which is required for maintenance of normal blood glucose levels. The glucose-tolerance factor is an organic complex of chromium formed with chromium, niacin and glutathione - dinicotinoglutathione. Glucose-tolerance factor aids insulin in regulating blood sugar levels....

The 5-Step Switch-to-get-Fit Program (24 pages)

The 5-Step Switch-to-get-Fit Program will help you succeed with long-term weight-loss like you have never experienced before. One of your goals is to switch habits and behaviors. Another goal is to get fit. The key to achieving both of these goals is to follow ALL five steps in the 5-Step Program. Your likelihood of success decreases if you only follow 3 or 4 steps. So commit yourself to following all 5 steps in a flexible, but committed manner..

1. Eat less-Eat Right - Calories-in

Super CitriMax Hydroxycitric acid helps your desire to eat less. Eating less food initiates the "famine situation." Your biological switches respond to the "famine." Super CitriMax Hydroxycitric acid-induced "famine condition" will quickly send messages to the body that fat-accumulations need to be burned for energy. Consuming Super CitriMax Hydroxycitric acid at least twice a day 30-60 minutes before eating meals will curb your appetite for food - you will eat less. Eating less is than normal requires some discipline. Eating less means: eating fewer calories. Eating smaller portions is your first solution....

Burning calories is all about moving. When the body is resting, the heart pumps slower. Walking, swimming, gardening, bicycling, working, cooking, and playing increases your heart rate and burns calories. Start thinking, "Move more - eat less". When you are moving, you are burning calories. Start a new habit of moving. Replace one hour of TV-watching with an hour of moving. Be patient, just begin moving....

4. Partner with a Friend

A friend will help you stay committed. The 5-Step Switch-to-get-Fit Program is a life-changing process that takes commitment and follow-through. When you create your weight-loss goals, it helps to have a partner to share your commitments. You must first write your commitments. Write them carefully. Write your commitments so it will be difficult for you to escape from your commitment. Write your commitment with feeling. Write your commitment in large letters and place it in plain view so you can see them 5-10 times each day. The most significant factor in behavioral changes is determination. Only 2-5% of the weight-loss population feels lasting determination when they begin their weight-loss program....

Marketing the Health Benefits of Weight-loss (4 pages)

Once you have lost some weight by following the 5-Step Switch-to-get-Fit Program, you will be able to easily instruct others who need help - you can become their weight-loss coach. It may only take you 30-60 days of consistent weight-loss for you to be able to coach others. You will have already set your goals, shared your goals with others, made behavioral switches, started with hydroxycitric acid to trigger fat-burning, learned to eat less and eat right, made a habit of walking 30 minutes and consumed vitamins coenzymes, mineral cofactors and whole-fruit antioxidants for efficient energy. As a person experienced in weight-loss with the 5-Step Switch-to-get-Fit Program, you will be able to coach others. You will be able to answer their questions before they ask them. You will be able to teach them the concepts and principles of using a friend as a weight-loss partner. An experienced coach is better than an educated coach..

Exercise your mind: Describe yourself as a weight-loss coach.
