Photograph of small bells and a whistle.

COST OF THE METABOLISM MIRACLE WITH ALL THE BELLS AND WHISTLES!

caitlin   Caitlin’s story below!

START NOW AND LOOK GREAT in 8 weeks and beyond!

Hi everyone, I’m Diane Kress, RD CDE, author and developer of the successful weight loss and health gain programs:  The Metabolism Miracle, Revised Edition and The Diabetes Miracle.

I’ve been a practicing dietitian/nutritionist and diabetes educator for over 35 years.  I opened my private practice in medical nutrition therapy 16 years ago.  Back in the day, I taught diets based on medical conditions….(while at the same time,  I was also working on the breakthrough program that eventually became The Metabolism Miracle. Later I developed The Diabetes Miracle.  The books became bestsellers and MM is a NY Times Best Seller.  The program WORKS.  No smoke and mirrors or empty promises.  It works.  You will lose weight and keep it off, lose inches, improve lab work, decrease the need for medications, and increase energy, focus, and concentration. Not bragging but you will also look and feel much younger

During the years of my full time private practice, my fee per visit was $300.00.

Years into MM/DM, 90% of my patient base chose to learn The Metabolism Miracle or The Diabetes Miracle.  And once they saw the incredible results, they asked me to write a book.

At that time, I realized that I was helping;one patient at a time….but  I wanted to be available to anyone who needed help and support with the program.

So….I restructured my business.  I saw fewer private practice patients, and began working on an online support group for all who desired support and access to me for their personal questions and concerns.

http://www.Miracle-Ville.com has been up and running for 5 years and currently has over 2800 members. The site is checked for accuracy so you can trust all the answers. All your MM questions will be answered. There is a search box for basic answers and you can private message me for personal concerns. I will check a 2 day food log. There are over 1000 MM recipes. The support is incredible as members are very open to lend their expertise and insights.
Miracle-Ville also has Diane Kress’ videos for those who prefer to learn by seeing/hearing

The other day I decided to figure out how much the entire MM/DM system costs...with all the bells and whistles. Remember, you can do a great job with this program by following either The Metabolism Miracle, Revised Edition, The Metabolism Miracle Cookbook, or The Diabetes Miracle books. The “Bells and Whistles” add to the basic program.

 The only diet/exercise/lifestyle programs that work for the majority of people who suffer from overweight and its medical conditions are The Metabolism Miracle, Revised Edition/The Diabetes Miracle.  The program works for everyone with insulin imbalance, insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, pre diabetes, type 2 diabetes, PCOS, overweight or obesity that is caused by insulin imbalance and insulin resistance.  MM is a NY Times Bestseller, licensed in 8 languages,  and has a world wide following.  It is written specifically for over 60% of those who struggle with their weight and weight related medical conditions like hypertension, elevated cholesterol and triglycerides, increasing glucose, belly fat…and notice that regular weight reduction diets don’t work for any length of time.

Miracle-Ville.com provides accurate MM information and contact with Diane Kress that allows you to discuss your personal concerns and issues with the author and program developer. Diane Kress, RD CDE  

Try reaching out to the “real” Jenny Craig, Dr. Atkins (when he was alive, of course), the developer of Nutrisystem (who would that be?), the developer of Medi Fast (again, who is that person?)….you get the idea.  And the beauty is, you are able to touch base with the program author/developer of the only program that actually works.  The previously mentioned programs have a 2% success rate.  MM/DM has an over 80% success rate.

THE ENTIRE LIFETIME COST OF THE METABOLISM MIRACLE PROGRAM INCLUDING ALL THE “BELLS AND WHISTLES” IS 85.00

THE BOOK IS LESS THAN 13.00!

THE BREAKDOWN

THE BOOK: The Metabolism Miracle, Revised Edition, The Metabolism Miracle Cookbook, or The Diabetes Miracle = $13.00 or less<. You can have total success with the program for less than $13.00

THE SUPPORT SITE. Miracle-Ville.com support website is $10.00 per month

BRAND NAME FOOD LISTS All 3 lists of Brand Name Products that fit the program:  “5 gram Counter Carbs”, “The Best Brand Name 11-20 gram list”, and “Allowable Brand Name 11-20 gram list = $9.99

You are “all in” for less than $ 85.00 (includes 6 month membership to Miracle-ville.com)

Less than $85.00 IS THE TOTAL LIFETIME FEE FOR THE ENTIRE PROGRAM WITH ALL THE OFFERINGS.

If you tried to contact the real Jenny Craig, a registered dietitian, a registered nutritionist , Dr. Atkins office, Medifast, Weight Watchers and ask them how much it will cost for a lifetime of their program…you will get no answer: the cost would be astronomical.

And remember, all traditional diet programs have a 2% success rate; 98% failure rate; So, whatever amount you pay to be “on their program” there is almost no chance for long term success.

You can live the incredibly successful Metabolism Miracle lifestyle program and have direct access to the program’s author and developer for less than 85.00 (FOR EVERYTHING, FOREVER). And, you can also have complete success with a 13.00 or less book!

The best package to change your weight, health, and life is a copy of The Metabolism Miracle, Revised Edition, The Metabolism Miracle Cookbook, or The Diabetes Miracle and a membership to Miracle-Ville.com.

Caitlin lost 110 lbs and traded a size 22 for a size 6.

caitlin

She regained health, energy, and confidence

Caitlin made it happen with The Metabolism Miracle.  This is her story………

“My name is Caitlin and I was diagnosed with PCOS after my husband and I had a miscarriage is 2010. I weighed 251 pounds, and I didn’t have a ‘cycle’ for 2 years. It was a miracle that my husband and I were able to even get pregnant in the first place. After losing the baby in October, I decided that I was no longer going to give in to my food addiction, and started ‘getting healthy’.

I got a new OB and I went to an endocrinologist for my PCOS and was prescribed diet pills. For those who don’t know, diet pills are “speed.” They artificially ramp up your heart and cause weight loss. But diet pills are very hard on the heart, cause anxiety, take away sleep, and are addictive. Once you stop them, and you will have to stop taking them, you gain back more weight than you lost.

I stopped taking diet pills because of the cost and health effects. After stopping the drug, I stuck to a 1200 calorie a day diet and really worked out. I actually ended up gaining 18 pounds in one month.

I realized that something was very wrong. A low calorie diet AND exercise should result in weight loss; not gain. I was so frustrated and upset. I didn’t know where to turn.

My dad sent me a book; The Metabolism Miracle by Diane Kress. As I read it, everything in that book sounded like it was written for me. My father has type 2 diabetes, and already had great success with this program and does not require medication for diabetes.

I literally started the program the next day. I have lost over 110 pounds, gone from a size 22 to a size 6 and I am still losing weight.

I want to inspire others to do this. Those with PCOS, pre diabetes, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome really can’t lose weight and get healthy counting calories and exercising because we have a different type of metabolism.

Since following The Metabolism Miracle, my adult acne has cleared up, my emotions and moods ARE A LOT MORE EVEN, I no longer crave sugar, I have a lot more self confidence, and I feel more like myself than I ever have before.

Losing weight is difficult, if it was easy everybody would do it. But with the Metabolism Miracle, you CAN DO IT.”

Best wishes, Caitlin

Caitlin’s father, Chris, lost OVER 200 pounds, is off medication, looks and feels great!

PCOS… 1 in every 10 young women has PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) . The physician recommended diet does more harm than good!

You may have read headlines in women’s magazines about PCOS ….it’s the acronym for the term Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.  Basically, it is an endocrine condition in 1 out of 10 women that prompts hormonal imbalance that can cause irregular periods, weight gain, unwanted hair growth on the face, hair loss on the head, acne, symptoms of PMS and…if untreated…can eventually lead to infertility and type 2 diabetes.

Among the hormones that are imbalanced with PCOS are the sex hormones and the fat gain hormone: insulin. 

Normally, the ovaries make a small amount of male sex hormones (androgens).  In women with PCOS, the ovaries over produce androgens and this may lead to the cessation of ovulation, stubborn acne, and excess hair growth on the face and body. 

Excess insulin causes blood glucose to swing leading to fatigue, melancholy, carb cravings, inability to focus and concentrate, and weight gain around the middle (muffin top, belly fat, back fat), inability to lose weight, decreased self esteem, anxiety, and depression.  If insulin excess is untreated, insulin resistance develops that can eventually lead to pre diabetes and then type 2 diabetes.

PCOS gets its name because the ovaries may be covered in small cysts that cause hormonal imbalance.  The diagnosis is made based upon symptoms, a physical exam, and lab tests of hormonal levels.

Treatment involves:  Weight loss (more later), exercise, lowering blood pressure and cholesterol.  The doctor may prescribe birth control pills to regulate periods and help reduce facial hair and acne.  Sometimes an androgen-lowering medication called spironolactone is used along with birth control pills.  Another medication commonly prescribed is the diabetes medicine; metformin.  It can also help decrease insulin release, insulin resistance, regulate menstrual cycles, and improve fertility.

It is very important for young women with PCOS to lose excess fat.  A low calorie, low fat program is not the answer when PCOS is the problem. 

Low calorie traditional diets may be low calories (Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, Nutri-System, and physician prescribed very low calorie diets) but are high in the one nutrient that stimulates insulin production; carbohydrate

The general public does not yet realize that PCOS is a medical condition that occurs when a woman has uncontrolled Metabolism B. (excess insulin production and insulin resistance and that CARBOHYDRATE is the only macronutrient that causes insulin levels to rise.

  Without this knowledge, women with PCOS may spend years with irregular periods, increasingly heavy periods, extreme cramps, PMS, abnormal reproductive hormonal levels, diagnosed with infertility, have abnormal hair growth, midline fat deposits, elevated cholesterol, later in life are prone to pre diabetes and type 2 diabetes. I think this is an interesting read for both men and women because almost everyone knows a woman who suffers from PCOS.

I feel that one of the problems with US medicine is that medical research is always searching for the “medicine” to “treat” a medical condition, syndrome, or disease.

Wouldn’t it make more sense and simplify the solution is we looked to the root cause of the problem and worked at the “root level” instead of treating and medicating the end result?

The root problem for women with PCOS is hyperinsulinism. Did you know that insulin is a fat gain hormone? If a person releases excess insulin 24 hours/day…they will form more fat on and in their body. Excess insulin will cause the woman with PCOS to gain weight over and above what they eat calorically, amass midline fat deposits, and eventually suffer with elevated cholesterol, triglycerides, and fatty liver disease.

Insulin determines 24/7 blood glucose levels. Excess insulin causes blood glucose to vacillate all day/night with peaks and valleys causing hunger and carb cravings, depression, fatigue, anxiety, poor sleep, irritability, brain fog, racing thoughts, inability to focus and concentrate, low libido, blurry vision, aches/pains.

As a main hormone in the endocrine system, when excess insulin is released…it throws off the balance of many other hormones of the endocrine system…including the hormones of reproduction. Estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, LH, FSH are all hormones of the endocrine system. When insulin is “off”, it is very common for these hormones to be “off.”

Excess insulin causes fat cells to grow and insulin receptors to “stretch.” In time, stretched insulin receptors will not allow insulin to connect. This is insulin resistance. Isn’t it ironic that the drug used for PCOS is a drug originally developed for diabetes? That is because those with PCOS who do not treat their insulin problem are on the fast track to diabetes!

PCOS is often a precursor to prediabetes which is a precursor to irreversible type 2 diabetes!

Interesting, isn’t it? Recap:

●Women with PCOS were born with the gene for metabolic syndrome (for ease, I call this Met B)

●The root of metabolic syndrome (and PCOS) is excess insulin release and resultant insulin resistance.

●Insulin is a fat gain hormone

●Excess insulin causes fat gain “on” and “in” the body

●Women with excess insulin get fat (especially around the middle where the insulin is released from the pancreas) and eventually in their blood : in the form of rising cholesterol and triglycerides.

●Excess insulin causes blood glucose fluctuations that cause 24/7 symptoms including: hunger and carb cravings, depression, fatigue, anxiety, poor sleep, irritability, brain fog, racing thoughts, inability to focus and concentrate, low libido, blurry vision, aches/pains.

●Excess insulin causes fat cells to grown and insulin receptors to become misshapen, this is the actual cause of insulin resistance in women with PCOS.

●If the pancreas continues to over-release insulin throughout a woman’s life, she will develop metabolic syndrome: high cholesterol, high triglycerides, high blood pressure, and diabetes.

The solution to this syndrome is not in taking medications that “band-aid” the underlying problem. The answer is in a lifestyle change…to live the lifestyle (diet/exercise) that match your metabolism. Women with PCOS must realize that they DO have uncontrolled Metabolism B and a root cause of their problem is in insulin over-release.

A calorie counting diet (low calorie, exercise, low cholesterol, low fat) does not address insulin and will never work to help PCOS.

The diet method that works for PCOS, metabolic syndrome, prediabetes, type 2 diabetes, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, overweight, obesity is the diet that gets the root of all of these problems…excess insulin must be stopped and the pancreas must be rested ASAP.

The lifestyle program that absolutely controls insulin release and begins immediately to regulate PCOS is The Metabolism Miracle! Pass it forward!

Hollowed 6”sub roll, onion pocket, or bagel from GreatLowCarb.com makes a 0 Countable Carb any meal sandwich!

hard-roll-breakfast-sandwich-1

As a person with Metabolism B and Type 2 diabetes, I have hollowed or “gutted” my bagels, rolls, sub rolls to help decrease their carb grams.

Now I use bread products from The Great Low Carb Bread Company. greatlowcarb.com. This amazing low carb bread and bread product company bakes their products with the highest quality ingredients including Vital wheat gluten, almond flour, flax seed meal, oat flour, etc. The bread is delivered to your door and uses the same ingredients I would use to make my own bread.

Even if I did not hollow the rolls, bagels, sub rolls, these items are NEUTRAL on The Metabolism Miracle. I still hollow them to make more room for sandwich fillings. I want to taste less roll and more egg, cheese, ham, and veggies. But some days, I just want a toasted, buttered hard roll and I can have it when I use greatlowcarb.com products with NO impact on my blood glucose, insulin level.


GREAT LOW CARB BREAKFAST SANDWICH

(ONION POCKET, 6”SUB ROLL, BAGEL FROM GREATLOWCARB.COM)
INGREDIENTS
• 1 onion pocket, 6” sub roll, bagel, or roll (greatlowcarb.com)
• ¼ cup shredded cheese (cheddar is great)
• 2 ounces ham, chopped
• 1-2 eggs, scrambled
• 1 tsp. butter, for scrambling eggs
Salad Mix:
• 1/2 cup baby arugula
• 1/2 small tomato, chopped
• 1 Tbls small red onion, finely chopped
• 1 tsp olive oil
• 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
• Salt and pepper

The Hollowing
Just slice the bread product in half and scoop out most of the soft bread.

The Salad Mix

Other Sandwich “Fillings”

Add the cheese to the bottom of ½ of your scooped onion pocket, bagel, 6” sub roll, or roll. Use the ¼ cup as the cheese melts it will take up less space.
Add chopped ham on top of the cheese
Bake the whole roll at 350 degrees F. for 3 minutes. Melt the cheese but don’t overbake the onion pocket, 6” sub roll, bagel, roll.

The Eggs
Lightly scramble about 1-2 eggs per sandwich in some butter over medium heat. Try not to overcook the eggs.

When you’re ready to make the sandwiches, pile the salad mix right in the top half of each roll.

Then lay the egg on the bottom half. Pretty much everything should be pretty flat thanks to the hollowing.

Cutting the sandwich in half reveals all the goodies.
Come on. How good does that look?

This sandwich idea and photos are from http://www.macheesmo.com/hard-roll-breakfast-sandwich/. Full credit and thanks to this website.

S-U-C-C-E-S-S….This is how Metabolism Miracle Followers spell MM SUCCESS!

success-arrow

I was looking at Miracle-Ville’s SUCCESS STORIES ….over 400 page’s worth….and came across one of our member’s SUCCESS post as well as my own SUCCESS post. We took the letters in SUCCESS and applied them to our MM experience.

Val from Miracle-Ville wants you to know her 7 Keys for METABOLISM MIRACLE SUCCESS

S=Set up your environment. Get stocked up on neutrals and clear all temptations. In the beginning I froze my debit card, yup in ice in the freezer so that I would not go and by out to eat food. I kept emergency cash on hand in a sealed envelope but purchased everything I needed before hand. It was fun thawing that card after about day 4, I felt a real sense of empowerment!!! : )

U= U know what your weaknesses are, plan ahead to make sure you are set up for success. I have an accountability partner, I showed her my weight we put it in an envelope and in 8 weeks we are having a healthy lunch to celebrate. I also have asked my hubby when he brings home pizza to just bring me cheese pizza as it’s on plan for me without the crust and I don’t care so much for the toppings. Also find an exercise that you like and stick to it. It’s ok to venture out and try something new. I personally loaded some booty shaking music from my teens (WHEW! makes me feel old) just to enjoy and walk/clean/clear my head to.

C= Calmness. Find some time in the day just for you. This has been a work in progress for me. However, I love cooking my lunch fresh and it gives me time to listen to my pandora and relax for the remainder of my lunch.

C= Commit to the plan and don’t make excuses. Don’t wait to start tomorrow, start with you next snack or meal.

E= Eat neutral foods when you feel hungry. I consume tons of salads, cucumbers, bell pepper, unsalted peanuts. I always have snacks and that helps keep me satisfied.

S= Scale. Weigh, measure and then hide the scale, ; ) I call mine the scale monster. Stay away for 8 weeks!!!

S= Start a way to see your progress. I like to take a picture of how my body looks so I can see the visual improvement. I find it’s best in a tank top and some shorts so that I can see how my body is shrinking from all over.

Diane Kress’ 7 tips for Metabolism Miracle SUCCESS

S: So thankful to have The Metabolism Miracle in my pocket. I have Met B and I will always have Met B. It’s not curable but it is controllable. By following MM as my lifestyle, I control my insulin levels and thereby control my weight/fat, measurements, health issues, medication needs, energy level, focus, mood.

U: Understand the principles of MM like the back of my hand. Once you really “get” MM, it’s like riding a bike…you never forget. The trick is to absorb the program and make it a habit.

C. Care about others. I feel it’s my mission to get the MM word out to the public. I post on social media and post in MV. You can forward my posts to your friends, coworkers and family, too. MM has always been a grassroots campaign and I’m so happy to bring it to as many people as possible. Knowledge is power.

C: Carb cravings are truly gone. I peek into shopping carts and am amazed at what people purchase for themselves and their family. Frozen pizza, soft pretzels, Belgian waffles, regular syrup, High carb cereals, fruit juice and sugar sweetened beverages, chips, snacks, cookies, whole cakes, donuts, ice cream….all in one cart! If I at that way I’d be obese, on insulin, and very depressed.

E: Exercise has become a part of my life. I live, I breathe, I eat, I rest, I exercise. It’s nothing extra, nothing that I would consider neglecting. It is as essential as eating, resting, breathing…don’t think of exercise as an option; it is not an option in our world.

S: Speak to myself in a positive and loving way.. Throughout my day, I always take a few minutes to stop the madness and think positive thoughts. I turn around my “mindspeak” from negative to positive. Close my eyes and have a “positive conversation” with myself (in silence, of course :)). I turn around my day several times a day.

S: Satisfaction. Maybe Mick Jagger can’t get no satisfaction but Diane Kress can. It’s a great feeling to be satisfied with my weight, size, health, focus, concentration, energy level, and demeanor. Without MM/DM as part of my life, I have no idea who I would be….Hey, I don’t want to know that woman!

Get started today. The VERY BEST EDITION of The Metabolism Miracle is now on Amazon.

7 Questions for Diane Kress about The Metabolism Miracle; born of necessity and now making a huge impact on weight and inch loss, and renewal of health, energy, focus, and that glow!

A major publication recently asked Diane Kress 6 questions about The Metabolism Miracle.  The answers provide insight into the unique and effective weight loss/health program: The Metabolism Miracle

metabolism miracle, new book, silver

  • What drove you to research, design, and write “The Metabolism Miracle”?
  • I had been a registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator for over 35 years.  As a data collector, an analytical and methodical person, as well as very conscientious at my job….I had discovered several things as the years passed and I specialized in weight loss, metabolism, and diabetes.

    Despite concerted effort, about 60% of people who followed the traditional low calorie/ low fat diet for weight loss did not have long term success.  In fact, most lost only 8 pounds after 8 weeks only to regain that small amount of weight.  As if this were not enough, I noticed that these same people had progressively increasing waist measurement, were acquiring back fat,  had increased cholesterol (LDL) and low HDL, increased triglycerides and blood pressure…and slowly but surely their blood sugar was increasing!  These “dieters” were actually getting fatter and sicker on a low calorie, low fat program!  And I was one of these people.

    Aside from the poor weight loss and decreasing health, they had a list of personal symptoms that were common to most:

    Fatigue (even in the morning upon waking up), weight gain around the middle, their old “tried and true” diets no longer worked, they “loved” carbohydrate foods and seemed to crave them at times, irritability, anxiety, mild depression/melancholy, restless sleep, inability to focus and concentrate, poor short term memory, racing thoughts, sensitivity to light, etc.

    The other 40% of my patients did succeed on traditional calorie counting programs in terms of weight loss and they did not see worsening health, the aforementioned symptoms, or increased need for medications

    In time, I was able to assess fasting lab work, a patient’s personal and family medical history, and personal symptoms and conclude if they would succeed on a traditional diet or not.  I coined a name for these dieters.  Those who WOULD succeed on traditional diets had Metabolism A.  Those who would not succeed with conventional low calorie diet had Metabolism B.  For ease; Met A or Met B.

    I spent years refining a diet protocol that would work for the majority of overweight people.  It turns out that their root problem is not eating too many calories and not exercising enough. The root of their problem is the hormonal imbalance of the fat gain hormone; INSULIN.  Those with Met B have insulin imbalance.  Excess insulin causes excess fat gain on and in the body, high cholesterol, triglycerides, blood pressure, and eventually can lead to diabetes.

    I took apart the traditional diet and mathematically put it back together to match the metabolism of a person with insulin issues.  It required years of pain staking work, but ultimately…the program was perfected.

    The Metabolism Miracle became a 3 Step program:

    Step 1 to rest and rehab insulin production.

    Step 2 to reintroduce carbohydrate based on amount, glycemic index, glycemic load, and carbohydrate timing.  No other diet protocol put all three necessary components together.

    Step 3, or maintenance, was a lifestyle rather than a diet and enabled these people to live at their desired weight on little to no medication and feeling great.

    After successful outcomes with over 3000 patients, and the data to prove it, I decided to write The Metabolism Miracle that would teach the world about Metabolism B, how to live in accordance with it, and would provide a very easy to follow core program, sample menus, and recipes.

    I’ve now personally taught the program to over 6000 patients and the program is a New York Times Bestseller, licensed in 7 languages, and successfully followed around the world.

    2. It is called “The Metabolism Miracle“, why did you decide to call the program a “miracle?”

    In its development and when I initially taught it at my private practice, the program didn’t have a name…I offered it as a diet program to those patients who matched the protocol for Met B.  In short order,  physicians specifically sent their patients to me to learn that “really effective program.”  When I got a publisher, they wanted to know what I intended to call the program.  I asked my patients what one world they would use to describe it and many used the word “miracle.”  And so, the Metabolism Miracle was born.

    3. Your book discusses a unique 3 Step carb-focused program that stabilizes blood glucose levels and reprograms the metabolism to burn fat instead of build fat, can you describe how this is done?

    The Metabolism Miracle is a 3 Step program .  Those with uncontrolled Metabolism B begin the program with their pancreas producing excess fat gain hormone; insulin, their liver releasing excess sugar (glycogen) and resultant excess sugar storage in fat cells.

    When the pancreas releases excess insulin, blood sugar drops.  This drop in blood sugar causes a person to feel very hungry for carbohydrate foods (chips, cookies, chocolate, bread, fried, etc).  When they relent and eat the carbohydrate food, their blood sugar spikes high. The pancreas over- reacts to the rise in sugar with more excess insulin that drops the sugar low again. This causes hunger, fatigue, binge eating, depression, anxiety, and overweight!  It’s a tiring and uncomfortable way to live. It’s like living life on a roller coaster of low and high blood sugar.

    If the person says…”I’m not going to “cave in” and eat. I’ve used up all my calories for the day so I’ll ignore the hunger”  it would seem like a solution to stopping the roller coaster, right?

    Unfortunately: wrong.

    Whenever a person doesn’t eat for a period of time exceeding 5 hours, their liver will automatically release stored sugar (glycogen) to fuel the brain and organs. (This is a built in survival mechanism)  When blood sugar rises from the liver release, the Met B  pancreas over-releases insulin AGAIN.

    You can conclude that the person with Met B is seemingly doomed as they release excess insulin and get fatter when they eat AND when they don’t eat.

    Step 1 of The Metabolism Miracle is designed to be lower in carbohydrate so the dieter can control the amount of carb that can converts to blood sugar and also is enough to cause the liver to deplete its stores of glycogen.  After Day 4 of the program, as the dieter stays within carb guidelines and has depleted its stored glycogen…the body shifts from a fat building machine to a fat burning machine!

    Step 2: After 8 weeks of rest and rehab in Step 1, a person can move to Step 2.  Carbohydrate foods increase in quantity, are all lower glycemic index and are timed to work with the body’s natural clock. The dieter chooses a carbohydrate serving at breakfast, lunch, dinner, bedtime and between meals that will exceed 5 hours.  All healthy, low glycemic, delicious carbs are added to a base of lean protein, heart healthy fat, and neutral veggies.  Step 2 is also a fat burning step.

    Step 3: Once a dieter reaches his/her desired weight, loves his body, feels great, has improved lab  work and takes as little medication as possible, he moves to Maintenance.  This is an individual carbohydrate allotment based on gender, height, desired weight, age, activity.  It is more of a way of life than a diet.

    All Steps require a minimum of 30 minutes activity over and above the dieter’s norm, water/decaf fluid, recommended vitamins/supplements like Omega 3’s.

    4. What are the worst trends you currently see in the average American diet that cause obesity or diabetes?

    Without a doubt, the #1 worst trend is the premise that obesity, overweight, and diabetes are caused by excess calories.  For the majority of the overweight population, their weight and health doesn’t suffer from the number of calories, but the type of foods they are consuming.   Super-Sized amounts of carbohydrate: soda, energy drinks, fries, bagels, pasta portions, candy, desserts, sub rolls, wraps, pizza, take out Chinese, take out burritos with rice and beans, chips, soft pretzels, etc etc.  Years ago, when the medical community zeroed in on “low fat, low cholesterol, low calories, we became a high carb society.  We are so focused on fat free/low fat and these foods are actually higher in carbohydrate content.  And high carbohydrate foods are toxic for those with Met B.   Ex: Olive oil and vinegar dressing may have more fat and calories than fat free Italian dressing…but it has no carbohydrate grams and won’t cause over release of insulin.

    Also, we have become a nation of inactivity…spending most of our time sitting.  A sitting body does not burn off blood sugar efficiently and causes higher circulating insulin levels.

    In addition, the average person in the 21st century is highly stressed. Stress causes the release of stress hormones that cause blood sugar to rise and excess insulin to release.

    Lastly, the feed we give our cattle, pigs, poultry contains growth hormone, antibiotics, pesticides, and other chemicals that is transferred to us when we consume the meat.  Back in the day, our protein sources were clean….no hormones, antibiotics, pesticides….and we were healthier.

    5. From a number of weight loss books in the market, what makes “The Metabolism Miracle” different and effective?

    The Metabolism Miracle is the only book written to cover all aspects of Metabolism B.  Close to 60% of the population and everyone with metabolic syndrome, pre diabetes, and type 2 diabetes has Metabolism B.  As a result, it is THE #1 program that works, in the short AND long term.  Not a gimmick, not a fad…it is 100% based in real science.

    1. Besides losing weight, what other benefits should a person following “The Metabolism Miracle” expect to derive?

    Fat loss…as opposed to weight loss.  Most diets cause weight loss which is a combination of losing fat, muscle, and water.  MM is designed to enable fat loss only.

    Health improvements evidenced in the following labs:  glucose, hemoglobin A1C, LDL cholesterol,    total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, triglycerides, Vitamin D, insulin levels

    Improvements in 24/7 wellness including:  in energy, memory, focus/concentration, loss of belly fat, improved mood, less irritability, improved libido, less cravings, less appetite, calmness/peacefulness

    Decreases in medications (types and doses) that were prescribed for weight related health maladies like hypertension, cholesterol, blood sugar, depression, GERD, sleep.

    6. Could you share with us on average how much weight does your clients usually lose while following this diet? And what is the ONE thing that helps them to lose weight with “The Metabolism Miracle”?

    Fat loss is dependent on 3 factors: Gender, height, and a person’s starting weight at the beginning of every 8 week interval.  There is a chart in the book that tells each person how much fat he/she can expect to lose every 8 weeks.  Oddly, on The Metabolism Miracle the number of inches lost equals the number of pounds lost.  Usually, a 15# loss on a calorie counting diet is a 7-8 inch loss.  On Metabolism Miracle, 100% fat loss enables a 15 inch loss for a 15 pound loss!

    7. As there are readers who are struggling to lose weight, shed inches of fat, and maintain muscle, do you have anything specific you want to say for them?

    If you are no longer losing weight on your old tried and true diets, if weight gain has shifted to your middle with muffin top, back fat, love handles

    AND

    If you are tired/cranky/short tempered/depressed/crave carbs/are hungry about 2 hours after eating/can’t sleep well/have problems with focus and concentration/have a decreased libido/if getting ready to go out is a project these days/if you feel burned out/if your attempts at dieting bring yo yo effects

    AND

    If your cholesterol, triglycerides, blood pressure, blood sugar are rising and you and/or your family have a history of GERD, PCOS, reproductive infertility, Alzheimers, osteoporosis/osteopenia, heart attacks, stroke, diabetes, pre diabetes, gestational diabetes, ADD/ADHD

    THEN

    You owe it to your health and well-being to read, follow, and live The Metabolism Miracle.
