The Metabolism Miracle Scale Phenomenon. It’s time to throw away the ideal body weight chart!

scale_cartoon

MM/DM is the abbreviation for The Metabolism Miracle or The Diabetes Miracle .

(The following is part of  a private answer on Miracle-Ville.com.  I answered a detailed question from a person following MM/DM.  I wanted to share this part with readers as many might not realize this phenomenon.)

Metabolism Miracle Scale Phenomenon

This question was sent from  a young woman in her early 20’s who is 5’10” and weighs 165 pounds at the end of her Step 1.  She lost within her expected fat/inch loss.  She is not really happy with that number on the scale and yearns to weigh 140 pounds.  Here’s my reply.

 “At 5″10″ and 165 pounds, you are currently within your “ideal body weight” range on the weight charts. According to a traditional weight chart, your ideal body weight would be in the 145-165 pounds range.

I would prefer to ask you your desired body weight.. the weight you that makes you fit in your clothes, look great, feel great.  And most women at your height would reply that their desired weight is, say, 140-145 pounds because they remember what the traditional ideal weight charts say, what the magazines say, and  at one time they remember looking great at that weight.  

In the past, your body may have looked phenomenal at 140 pounds, because you were 140 pounds that looked like 140 pounds. At that time your body had more fat tissue than it has now.

 News flash:  Reaching 140 pounds (scale weight) for a young woman of your height (5’10”) while living MM/DM is way too thin.   MM/DM burns fat and retains muscle.  At 140 pounds, reached by following MM/DM, you would appear to weigh about 120 pounds…VERY thin for a 5’10” woman.

A true life example: My daughter was 23 years old when, at 5’5″ she reached a great- looking size while weighing 140-143 pounds on the scale.  Even though she looked amazing and wore the same size clothes she used to wear when she weighed about 120-123 pounds, she strove to weigh 125 pounds on that darn scale (what the traditional weight tables said.  

Even though she looked and felt great wearing her favorite jeans (size 5/6) with glowing skin, long lustrous hair, and a great figure; she was determined to get back to a scale weight of 125 pounds….”That’s what the chart says, and at 125 pounds I used to look great.”  Ironically, at 143# reached by MM/DM, with all fat loss and no muscle loss…..everyone guessed her weight at 125 pounds max!  

143 pounds retained after a traditional diet that burns FATAND MUSCLE looks very different from 143 pounds reached by MM/DM  ((BURNS FAT AND RETAINS MUSCLE)  The muscle tissue is toned, shapely, and tight.  143 pounds reached by a traditional diets’ fat and muscle loss looks bigger, more jiggly, and much BIGGER than 143 pounds attained by following MM/DM.  Even though both women weigh the same….a body with 143 pounds and much less fat looks to be about 123-125 pounds.

If you were to ask anyone how much they think you weigh now, you will hear about 145 pounds.  Yep, 145 pounds and not the 165 pounds the scale shows you.  So, you look to be a very desirable weight and fit in the clothes of a lighter woman…a young woman who weighs 145 pounds…even though the dang scale shows 165 pounds.

So, based on your scale weight, you are only 5 pounds off your desired weight at this time.  If you reached 160 on your scale from MM/DM, you will look 140 pounds.  Interesting, right?

Kimberly shares her Metabolism Miracle Journey… The second picture is 6 months into her program. We’ll see the 1 year picture soon!

 

 

Kimberly Johnson, before and after

 

May, 2014: Kimberly’s before picture:  251 pounds

November 2014: 6 months into her Metabolism Miracle journey:  210 pounds

Currently: 199 pounds

May, 2015:  will be her one year mark on The Metabolism Miracle. Can’t wait to see her next picture!

 “I started The Metabolism Miracle in May of 2014 at 251 lbs. In November I was 210 lbs. I am now at 199 lbs!! I am finally losing the weight and becoming healthier and I couldn’t be more thrilled. I still have more to lose, but for the first time in over a decade, I now believe I will do it.”

Kimberly’s  Story:

“I was always really thin as a child and young adult. After the birth of my first child, I was able to lose all the baby weight following Weight Watchers. After the birth of my second child, something was different. The weight would not come off like before. I was able to lose 20 or so pounds but I couldn’t progress any further. And then I would regain the weight plus more!

I then had babies number 3 and 4. And the weight just kept piling on. I tried every diet out there. I had prepackaged meals, I counted calories, I exercised, I even tried diet pills. I was desperate to lose the weight. I knew something must be wrong with my body, but nothing concrete would show up in my lab work.

I did notice that my fasting glucose was creeping up. (It used to be very low.) And my cholesterol was now borderline high. I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS).

The doctors would tell me to lose weight. I knew they didn’t believe me when I said I was following diets very strictly. It was very frustrating. I felt like a failure. After finding The Metabolism Miracle and working with Diane Kress, my life has changed. I have lost over 50 lbs and I feel great.

This lifestyle has changed my life. My cholesterol in now perfect. My PCOS symptoms are completely managed and best of all – and I am finally losing the weight and keeping it off!!”

Thanks so much for taking the time to share your story, Kimberly.  I am thrilled that you have finally lost weight (major fat loss), improved your health, and controlled your PCOS.  You look amazing.  Can’t wait for the one year photo!  Diane

The Actual Cost of “Metabolism Miracle” with all the bells and whistles will astound you. AND…The Program WORKS for a lifetime!

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 and The Diabetes Miracle.

I’ve been a practicing dietitian/nutritionist and diabetes educator since 1982.  I opened my private practice in medical nutrition therapy in 2000.  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.  Thee program WORKS.  No smoke and mirrors or empty promises.  It works.  You will lose weight, keep it off, lose inches, improve lab work, decrease the need for medication, and increase energy, focus, and concentration.

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 less 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.

Miracle-Ville.com has been up and running for 4 years and currently has over 2200 members.  Our administrator, Dee, is there to answer program -related questions and insure the accuracy of everything posted on Miracle-Ville.com.  I’m available to answer your private questions (regarding program tweaks to accommodate your own medical conditions, check over your lab work, answer prescription- related questions, as well as analyze YOUR food log and make any necessary recommendations.

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 good job with this program by following either The Metabolism Miracle or The Diabetes Miracle books.  But the Bells and Whistles add to the basic program.

What I found is that the entire system is an incredible bargain for those who will receive the key to unlock the door to weight loss, improved health, decreased medications, and long term success.  

 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/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 65% 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 has an administrator to answer  program related questions AND direct access to  the author/developer of the program, Diane Kress, RD CDE.  No other diet program allows you to discuss your personal concerns and issues with the author and  program developer.  

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.

With that said, you will have the  only program written for the millions with uncontrolled Metabolism B (also known as metabolic syndrome).

1. The Book (either The Metabolism Miracle or The Diabetes Miracle in soft cover) = $15.00

2.  The Metabolism Miracle Cookbook = $15.00

3.  Miracle-Ville.com support website = $59.99 for 6 months  or  $99.99 per year  (The Update Book is free to those who choose the annual membership)  

4. The Metabolism Miracle Update Book = $6.99 (free with annual membership)

5.  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 lis”t = $7.99

You are “all in” for $ 105.00 (with 6 month membership to Miracle-ville.com)

You are “all in” for  $ 138.00 (with annual membership to Miracle-Ville.com !)

This is not the annual fee…this is the total fee for the entire program and offerings.

If you call Jenny Craig, Nutrisystem, 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…be prepared to get no answer….because the cost would be astronomical.

 Remember, traditional diet programs have a 2% success rate (less for those with Met B).  So, whatever amount you pay to be “on their program” there is almost no chance for long term success.

So, you will be following the incredibly successful Metabolism Miracle program and have direct access to the program’s author and developer.  For a total of $105-138.00 (FOR EVERYTHING) you will be “all in” with no hidden fees or costs. 

All you need to change your weight, health, and life forever is a copy of The Metabolism Miracle 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 C. has lost 199 pounds, is off medications, looks and feels great!

Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics bestows its first seal of approval …To Kraft Singles!

kraft singles

http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/…/a-cheese-product-wins-kid…/…

Registered Dietitians are certified by the Association of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND). The AND chose it’s very first product to receive their new Nutrition Seal and the “food product” they chose to get their Seal of Approval?  Kraft Singles. Kraft singles are not even cheese, they are a processed cheese product.  Only 51% of this “food product” is cheese.  And have you ever left a Kraft single, in its plastic wrapping,  on the counter for 1 month?  Nothing changes.  This “plastic wrapped seemingly plastic food product” remains unchanged.  Reminds me of indestructible Twinkies snack cake.

As a registered dietitian with over 34 years as a member of the American Dietetic Association (that recently changed its name to Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics)…I’m totally embarrassed of this association and will most likely leave the untrustworthy and money hungry AND.

Over 75,000 RD’s belong to the AND as most hospitals, food companies, and industries won’t hire a dietitian without their RD.  But what does one do when the AND is “in bed with” Big Pharma, processed junk food companies, and the US government.. and and promoting horrible products for monetary sponsorship?

This week, the AND also claimed a small can of Coke is recommended as a snack.  What happened to fresh fruit or yogurt?  I can’t imagine recommending ANYONE to use caffeine and pure sugar as a snack.  The current obesity and type 2 diabetes epidemics are raging because of excess sugar (and processed carbohydrate) intake.

I am a well respected registered dietitian who does NOT march to the ANDs’ drum.  Follow me at http://www.dianekress.wordpress.com  and on the web as Diane Kress on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Google +, LinkedIn.  I speak the truth about nutrition; state of the science, accurate, trust worthy information and I’m not biased or paid by anyone.  I’m the real deal and am here “for the people.”

Kraft Singles, those individually wrapped slices of processed cheese that have long been a staple of school lunches, are the first product to earn a nutrition seal from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

The Metabolism Miracle and Chris C. He’s down 199 pounds , half his body weight gone!

C__Data_Users_DefApps_AppData_INTERNETEXPLORER_Temp_Saved Images_before (1)    WP_20150313_08_42_34_Pro (1)

Chris’  journey to lose over 200 pounds, shed 8 different medications, and normalize blood sugar in 12 years.  One man, one pair of walking shoes, one program…The Metabolism Miracle by Diane Kress, RD CDE.

Chris’ Journey in his own words: 

“The wife and I were having a normal discussion (for us), which is;  we can’t believe how different we look, and I decided I wanted to say Thanks!.

On 2/1/12, I started a new life. My A1C was 11.5; I weighed over 400 lbs, had high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, and all other tests indicated a metabolism fully off the rails. Someone told me about your book (The Metabolism Miracle).

I started reading it the day it arrived. My wife Nancy joined me a few months later and you have seen my daughter’s, Caitlin, success as well.

I’ve lost about 180  pounds*, my A1c is 5.1 at last check, blood pressure normal, cholesterol normal, and best of all the meds are gone too! I only take a sleeping pill now instead of the 9 prescriptions I took every day.

Nancy has lost about 100 pounds and her medication list has shrunk as well. Her A1c has moved from the pre-diabetic range to the normal range.

I have also “infected” others with my enthusiasm for this lifestyle and many have had similar success. When they ask if it works I just say “works every time ; it’s tried.” In addition I have started speaking to Diabetes support groups about the lifestyle changes I have made. I couldn’t have done this without your book and they are all made aware of that.

My message is; ” if I can do it, then you can do it!”  I loved your recent article about the cure being a pair of walking shoes and a book and I couldn’t agree more! I just replaced my 2 year old pair, and that’s another story. The new pair is one size smaller a 4 widths narrower. I think the picture will tell you the rest. Thank you! Thank you!! Thank you!!!

Diane Kress says:   ***When Chris’ A1C was 11.5, it reflected an average blood sugar  of 285mg/dL; 24 hours per day, for the previous 3 months.  Now, with an A1C of 5.1, his average blood sugar is 93mg/dL; 24 hours per day for the previous 3 months

Diane Kress says: ***For each point A1C improves, 5 pounds are gained!   So, when Chris decreased his A1C by 6.4 points (absolutely fantastic), he literally gained 32 pounds.  So, he got MUCH healthier, but at the price of a onetime only weight gain of 32 pounds.  But Chris never saw the weight gain on his scale…WHY NOT?  This gain occurs because the excess sugar once circulating in Chris’blood stream when his A1C was 11.5 didn’t just evaporate when his A1C decreased to 5.1.  The Metabolism Miracle program enabled the excess blood sugar to move from the blood stream (where it would eventually lead to diabetes complications) into fat cells.  The Metabolism Miracle then burned this body fat!  When he weighs now, the scale shows he lost 180 pounds, but he also lost the extra 32 pounds he assimilated from lowering his very high blood sugar.  His actual weight loss = 212 pounds!

 

UPDATE March, 2015.  Chris is now 199 pounds!  Remember his initial A1C drop from 11.5 to 5.1.  In addition to the weight loss shown on the scale, Chris has lost 32 pounds from burning fat in the process.  So, as of March, 2015...Chris has lost 231# of fat!!!!

From Chris March, 2015:

Diane,

I’ve sent you photos in the past, but thought you’d like the new ones. Please share with any one you like and let them know they can do it.  As of this morning I have Los 199 pounds and I found out my body fat% is 22%– down from 29% a couple of months ago..  I know 200 is close and another few pounds and I will literally be half the man I was. I have had to tune up my diet and pay attention to carb and fat intakes to get out of the last plateau, but the arrow sheet still applies!

Many thanks Diane, I would not have gotten here without you.   Thanks, Chris Compton.

It’s time for you, your friends, family, coworkers, children, parents to begin living The Metabolism Miracle.  You WILL lose weight, fat on the body, in the liver, in the blood.  Expect normalized weight, blood sugar, cholesterol, triglycerides, Vitamin D, and blood pressure.  In the process, you will find your medications and medication doses decreased or eliminated.  You will also feel energized, have greater focus and concentration, decreased cravings, and overall well-being.
