The Weigh Down On Weight: Losing It Right

"I've been on a diet for two weeks and all I've lost is two weeks."

Is this famous quote from Totie Fields something you can relate to?

Many of us find ourselves in the same frustrating situation. Going on a diet, losing some then gaining more.

Then we try another in-trend diet some celebrity gushes about (It worked for her, so it should work for me, right?), and the cycle repeats itself.

If you want lasting and healthy weight loss that won't come around again in a few weeks, months or years, there is only one thing you need to target: FAT.

It's the only weight you want to lose.

Often, you’ll be required to spend hours on end in the gym doing rigorous exercises, while also minimizing your calorie intake. And that itself, according to studies, can be a challenge.


Because muscle is required to burn fat. It's your muscles that fuel your metabolism.

The amount of calories you burn is dependent on those muscles. So when you lose muscle, your metabolism is reduced, and in turn, your body also becomes less capable of burning fat.

And also, if you eat very few calories, your body’s tendency is to go into defense mode and compensate for the loss.

How does it do this? It slows down your metabolism so your body burns fewer calories. Then, weight loss tends to be super slow, if at all. Counterintuitive, isn’t it?

As soon as you stop dieting, not only do you gain back the weight, but you usually gain more than you lost. The cycle goes on and on like a yo-yo.

In fact, a 2007 Tufts University study revealed that low-calorie diets produce transient and modest weight losses (approximately 10 pounds) over the span of six months, which are also regained within a year. In fact, up to 80 percent of all dieters regain the weight in just two years! How would you like to stop that cycle for good?

Lose Fat And Turn Your Life Around

Most diet plans are simply too unrealistic, too complicated, and too expensive to sustain for the average person. A Forbes study puts the average cost of popular regimented diets at $85.79 weekly, excluding the hundreds of dollars spent on expensive gym equipment or membership each month.

And many of them are focused on shedding weight fast - when in fact, you could be losing water and muscle!

Fortunately, there is a program to help you break the yo-yo dieting cycle to get healthier and fit for life.

The Shaklee 180 program is a complete 180-day inch loss program designed to eliminate the frustration of traditional diets and workouts with fat-targeting products that are so great-tasting they can easily replace meals.

The two-part program

This two-part program consists of an initial 90-day plan where you replace two meals daily with:

  • Energizing protein smoothies

  • Snack bars and teas

  • Plus a Shaklee-patented metabolic booster

All these components of the 180 kit are specifically created with leucine, taurine, and catechin extract - natural components scientifically proven to help burn fats while retaining muscle.

The low-sugar smoothies and snack bars are rich in fiber and protein, both important players in weight reduction.

  • Protein has tremendous benefits for curbing hunger and burning fat. First, protein builds cells, tissues, and muscles. And remember the more muscles you have, the more calories you burn. It also helps you feel fuller longer because protein is more complex to digest than carbs and fat. Protein is the most difficult macronutrient to convert to fat, and also the last to be used up by the body for energy stores.

  • Fiber, on the other hand, slows down glucose release into the bloodstream, which helps regulate the rate at which energy is used up in the body. It's easy to digest and makes you feel fuller, so you absorb fewer calories. What I like most, is the convenience of using the Shaklee 180 plan. It's something you can easily fit into a busy schedule, even during meetings. It's a convenience that that those difficult and elaborate diet plans don't allow.

No More Starvation. Eat Up to 5 Times A Day! The most exciting part of the Shaklee 180 program is that it allows you that one regular meal at the end of the day as a reward.

It encourages you to graze on small meals every three hours instead of gorging on three solid meals a day. So unlike conventional eat-little diets, you don't end up bingeing on food out of frustration! This is crucial because as studies show, eating small frequent meals helps regulate the hormone insulin. Insulin regulates fat metabolism and manages blood sugar levels.

When you binge and eat heavy meals, your body releases more insulin.

The reason is that it has to constantly keep up with an abnormally elevated blood sugar level, and to cope, the body retains more fat in the tissue.

You begin to experience:

  • Energy dips

  • Sluggishness

  • Debility

Consuming 3 light main meals with 2 healthy snacks allows your body to cope slowly but steadily.

This keeps insulin levels well-controlled, so your metabolism becomes more efficient at burning more calories. You lose more fat even as you rest.

The second 90 days - and this is something that is often lacking in other diet schemes - is the maintenance period where you are taught how to keep the inches and pounds you shed off for life. The Heart of Shaklee 180 Is Found In Nature! Like all Shaklee products, the Shaklee 180 Turnaround Kit relies on powerful ingredients that are sourced from nature - no artificial sweeteners, no synthetic compounds. These components have been tested and proven in clinical studies to work efficiently in reducing weight by targeting fat, and help maintain that weight loss momentum in the long-term.

  • Leucine Leucine is a special amino acid that promoted muscle growth while decreasing fat. Of all essential amino acids in the body, leucine has been proven to have the most impact on synthesizing protein in skeletal muscles.

  • Taurine Taurine is a natural energy booster that enhances mental and physical alertness. Taurine is found in Shaklee's energizing tea - an exclusive blend of green, white and red teas packed with antioxidants. In a study done by the Journal of Biomedical Science, taurine has also been found to increase the body's ability to metabolize fats and enhance insulin control, so hunger is curbed.

  • Catechin extract Catechins are flavonoids that enhance your body's ability to use up excess body fat for energy. A 2009 study by the Journal of Nutrition states that out of all natural sources, Catechins from green tea are the most efficient influencers of weight loss - a reason why Shaklee sourced its exclusive Metabolic Boost from a very potent green tea extract.

Invest In Good Choices for More Long-Term Effects The Shaklee 180 program is not a diet program. It's a lifestyle you can enjoy and maintain economically and realistically.

"This Program uses moderation, not starvation"

The results last because the program encourages moderation, not starvation, by incorporating the right natural nutrients that help your body maintain muscle while trimming down fat. It also teaches you how to maintain the momentum after you've lost fat.

It's geared for long-term, not transient and modest weight loss.

If you're determined to lose weight the right way, Shaklee 180 is the way to go. We are doing an event on June 1st 2022 let me know if you want to join!
