Most everybody has vague resolutions about being more healthy or losing weight. I am looking for people who are willing to step past being vague. I need 15 ladies who are committed to making changes in 2009 - who are willing to enroll in a risk free program that can help them achieve their perfect body shape and become lean for life... The first two ladies to jump on board will become eligible to be reimbursed even if they are satisified.
If you are really ready to lose weight, if you are tired of diets that don’t work, if you would like to not only lose weight but be more healhty, if you are willing to commit to $100-$150 per month for three months to see results (or get your money back) then I’d love to share more with you about the 2009 Osolean Challenge. I am willing to help anyone who wants to lose weight. Anyone can become eligible to be reimbursed for their product purchases, and I’ll be glad to share with you how that works. 2009 is your year to Shine, and I want to help you achieve your goals. Are you ready to succeed? I am here to make sure it happens!

    • whyvette,
      You can go here [Link Removed]
      and sign up. You’ll want the wholesale package for the challenge. I already have one team member, so you’ll take slot #2. As we build our teams you will earn the qualification to get a reimbursment check (ongoing each month) for $100. For each person who has a team of 6, this will happen. So, the more people who take the challenge, the more people I can help get a refund check. I am not great at explaining how it works, but I hope that makes a little sense.

    • Dee Dee, I’m planning on starting my NutriSystem plan back up in January (I know how you feel about it... bear with me, please, lol). Your $100 - $150 Osolean commitment is much more reasonable, but what all is involved?

      Is Osolean something that could be done in addition to this other “eating plan“? Would there be conflicts—as in I could actually lose some of my nutrients by doing one on top of the other?

      I guess I’d like more details about the program itself, and doing it independently from anything else. Will it require specific food choices, or does it accommodate most choices dependent upon portion control?

      I’m really interested, and still have time to defer my NutriSystem plan, but I’d like more information.

    • Heather,
      You could do both, but I don't think you'd need to. You know that I am not a fan of pre-packaged everything, but the premise of low-glycemic (which Nutrisystem is based on) is solid. I recommend low glycemic eating for health purposes as much as weight loss purposes.  

      Osolean is simply a patented protein peptide powder that you use twice daily. You can use it alone, or in conjunction with any eating program - Nutrisystem, WW, Zone, TOPS, etc.  I include the Glycolean Shake into my routine which is why there is a variance in price. The introductory package includes a month’s supply of Osolean, and a month’s worth of the Shake (if you use it like I do.) The second month, you can get a free container of the shake. Then, moving forward, you’d have to add that into your cost if you wanted to follow the same program I do. There are other support products you can use based on your particular challenges. What *I* do, is add my first serving of Osolean to my coffee in the am, and then late afternoon I make a shake with the Glycolean shake mix and the Osolean. The Osolean is flavorless for the most part and can be added to most anything. Some people put it in juice, others in yogurt or cereal. The plan is very flexible!

      We have a product called Accelerator that boosts a sluggish metabolism, but not everybody needs that. Accelerator also contains the same chemical found in chocolate (theobromine) which helps you 1)not crave chocolate and 2)have the feel good response that chocolage gives. I don’t recommend that product for everybody because it also can make people with an already fast metabolism feel jittery (since it contains a small amount of natural caffiene.)

      The Osolean Plan suggests cutting out 500 calories (which most can do by eliminating empty calories in their drinks.) Other than that, it is up to you to make healthy choices (although you know me well enough to know that I can't resist making suggestions. LOL) Portion control is a key to maintaining a healthy weight regardless of what else you are doing. That said, the isolated peptides in Osolean will cause your body to burn fat - period. In the same way that water hydrates you, you can expect Osolean to turn your body into a fat buring machine. Clinical results were nothing short of amazing. Those on Osolean lost 100 percent fat, those on the placebo lost only 50 percent fat, the other 50 percent was muscle mass.  

      Reducing caloric intake and making wise choices will help you get there quicker, and success breeds success. When it starts melting away, you’ll get excited and become more committed. Coaching is optional, but suggested since retraining the brain is a major part of making it a lifestyle change. We are what we think so if we want to change something it is imperative to change the way we think about it.  

      Did I answer your questions? I know I built a clock when you simply wanted to know the time, but I thought it might help to flesh it out for others who might also have questions.

    • You answered them brilliantly!

      I do have a sluggish metabolism. Caffeine doesn’t make me jittery at all, but I do have high blood pressure. Jitters aside, would the Accelerator have any negative effects?

      I’m going to check out the website and stuff today and try to make a decision. I’m not thrilled about certain aspects of the NS plan (the sodium content bothers the hell out of me, to be honest), but the convenience of it all is very appealing and (for me, at this moment) outweighs the drawbacks.

      Thanks for the information!

    • Heather,
      You could try the Accelerator. They revamped the formula a couple of years ago to add the theobromine and ajust it so people with blood pressure problems could take it. If it didn’t work for you, you could always send it back (100% satisfaction guarantee for 6 months on all products.)
      My issues with Nutrisystem are the MSG (much worse than salt IMO) and the tons of preservatives. I agree about the convenience. I have Zone bars or the kiddie version of the Clif bars (that I get from Sam’s - or you can order from vitacost.com) on hand for my snacks. Enough bars for a month costs me about $30. I do try to snack on nuts, and fruit sometimes too, but my busy lifestyle needs the convenience of grab a bar and go. :)
      We eat pretty healthy anyway, and I just adjust my porportions to lower the overall glycemic index (more protein, fruits, veggies, and less carbs.) I have never been a big breakfast eater, so the Osolean in my coffee with a bar (or half a shake added to my coffee) works great for me. My problem has always been not eating enough. My body lived in starvation mode (I got a double dose of that stinking thrifty gene.) Accelerator was something I really needed. Having extra energy as a side benefit isn’t a bad thing either. :)

    • Well, I just signed up! I ordered the Wholesale package and will start there.  

      With my new treadmill, my NS plan and now this challenge, we’ll see how we go. I can make tweaks and modifications as we go.

      And our road trip to Michigan in May is a perfect target-goal for me!

      What's next?? Who's next?? estatic

    • Great! You should get your products this week. After the 1st we’ll set up the encouragement calls again on the Lean for Life group. I am excited about what 2009 holds for all of us. I am looking forward to helping everyone reach their goals! (I get an emotional high when I can relive successes vicariously through my friends.) Am I weird?

    • I am going to roll this out to my facebook friends and twitter friends tomorrow. If you are remotely interested please let me know. I'd like to help my Fab40 friends first. For every team of 6 I build, someone will get a $100 check - might as well be you. :) I'd like to help offset the cost for people who'd like to try it but can't afford it. It is just a small way for me to pay it forward. I could just let people enroll as members and take the commission, but I'd rather help you get a wholesale account with the possibility of getting referral bonuses and team bonuses even though it reduces my commission to almost zilch. Like I told Heather earlier, I am weird. estatic I just want to help you be successful in your endevours to lose it.

    • Dee Dee....

      As you know, Im waiting to start my Osolean Program with the products that I already received.  It’s delicious by the way.  Im wondering, since, I too, eat not enough, do you think I might need the accelerator or should I just go with what I have and see how it goes???

      xoxo

    • Doreen,
      I love the Accelerator, and I think it would help if you have a sluggish metabolism (which is often a result of your body being in constant ‘starvation’ mode from not eating enough.) So, yes, I think it would help. I’d suggest ordering it with your next Osolean shipment to save on s/h charges. You’ll also be eligible to get a free container of Glycolean shake mix if you set up an auto-order for your monthly supply.

    • For those who will be joining the Osolean Challenge, and those who want to participate in the weekly calls - be thinking about realistic goals. I prefer to set goals in inches vs pounds, but I am flexible. Keep in mind that generally speaking anything more than 1-2% of your weight per week will not be fat loss, so think along those lines if you are setting goals based on pounds. You really don’t want to lose lean muscle mass - just fat!

      and then you might like to read through the posts at the Lean for Life group if you haven’t already. If you put your order in tonight, you should actually have the Osolean in hand by Thursday or Friday.
      I am looking forward to getting to know you better, and having you to encourage me to open up those exercise DVDs I won (from this site!) and get my booty toned up and my abs tight. estatic

    • Jenni,
      You are too funny! At least Cilantro & Lime have redeeming qualities. estatic Contrary to my purest health nut beliefs, the Osolean Plan only recommends cutting 500 calories out of your diet. I personally have to at least suggest low glycemic eating (think 7-8 chips there Jenni!) just because I know how beneficial it is for overall health. And then there is exercise.... sigh. That is important too even though it isn’t necessary for the Osolean Challenge. That is really where I am having to raise the bar for myself.

My conference call number will probably change as we had troubles with it tonight. If anybody else wants to jump on the bandwagon with us, we are going to have a biggest loser contest.
