      Most people are too focused on what the scale says. I say - it’s about how your clothes fit. The truth is that a pound of fat is about the size of a large grapefruit and a pound of lean muscle is about the size of a small tangerine. It is important to lose fat and maintain our muscle as muscle is a key component to burning fat.

      There are three key issues we face when we try to lose weight:
      1. Getting proper nutrition while reducing calories
      2. Boosting a sluggish metabolism
      3. Controlling hunger

      I want to address each one:

      1. To eat the right amount of fiber, protein, and can... 1. Scramble 7 egg whites. Add in broccoli, spinach and a tomato 2. Drink a glass of orange juice 3. Drink a glass of milk. Spend about $6 on all the ingredients, and need time to cook... Or you can blend one healthy, perfect meal in minutes with Vi-Shape™ Nutritional Drink Mix!

      Vi-Shape™ Nutritional Shake Mix – good for daily health! Made with: • A unique blend of proteins that work fast, and provide long lasting nutrition to help burn fat and build lean muscle. • Heart Healthy non-GMO soy protein • Fibersol™, a new patented fiber blend to help keep you full, providing fiber benefits without gas. Fibersol-2™ is an innovative soluble dietary fiber • 6g/serving (we average 12g/day, need 30 g/day) • Clean tasting and not viscous • Least gassy of any fiber you can use. • Acts as a prebiotic: supports growth of good bacteria. Whey Hyrolysate Prolibra™ in the Vi-Shape™ • One the three proteins in the Vi-Shake • Patented Whey Hydrolysate: " fat loss accelerant " • Clinically proven to: • Increase rate of body fat loss during dieting • Helps preserve muscle mass during dieting • Excellent source of calcium • Clean flavor profile • Aminogen™ - • Patented Enzyme Complex • Doubles the amount of amino acids into the blood stream • Decreases levels of C-reactive protein (heart healthy!) • Helps reduce stomach bloating and helps your body maximize protein absorption • 23 Vitamins, Minerals and antioxidants • Lowest sodium of all leading brands! • Mixes in milk or water...tastes amazing! Other brands don't offer this convenience!

      2. If you have been a " yo-yo " dieter, or skip may have put your metabolism into hibernation. To Jump start it: Exercise...and Take Vi-Slim™ " Metab-Awake! " tablets. This non jittery formula will help boost your metabolism, and help you burn fat. Increases calories used by 85-125 calories a day...which is 15 lbs. of weight per year!

      Vi-Slim™ Metab-Awake! Burn fat & Boost metabolism: Made with: • Proprietary formula – without dangerous stimulants like ephedra • ForsLean™ (Coleus Forskohlii) clinically proven to burn fat and promote lean muscle mass. Well-known Ayurvedic herb. • Yerba Mate extract which suppresses appetite, stimulates energy release and enhances mood. Powerful herbal antioxidant. • Chocoamine™ a cocoa extract that helps boost your metabolism, improve your mood, and increase your energy—naturally! • Green Tea Extract for added thermogenic (burns calories) activity that's synergistic with caffeine. • Evodiamine extract (Evodia fructus) increases metabolic rate and helps burn fat. Well-known Chinese herb.

      3. Curbing hunger while cutting calories can be hard...unless you take Vi-Trim ™ " Clear Control " drink mix. This patent pending herb blend mixes clear and won't alter the flavor of beverages or foods.

      Vi-Trim™ Take Hold of your Hunger, Clear Control Drink Mix: Made with: • Contains Phenylethylamine (PEA), found in chocolate, which helps to manage the stress of dieting and increases energy. • Patent-pending formula to help you control hunger & with PEA to help manage the stress of dieting. • Mixes virtually clear, flavorless and can mix into your Vi-Shape shake, or any beverage and it won't alter the flavor. • Helps your body burn fat with branded CitraMax™ - derived from Garcinia gambogia.

        • Michelle,
          You beat me to the punch. :)
          Manntech has awesome nutritional supplements designed for fitness and fat loss.
          Osolean is by far my favorite product because it helped get rid of the muffin top. It is a patented peptide product that targets fat loss. In a double blind placebo study the test group and the placebo group ate the same amount of calories. The test group used Osolean - they lost 100 percent fat, no lean muscle. The placebo group lost 50 fat, 50 lean. This is HUGE! The sole ingredients are whey protein (isolated peptides of the protein.) and soy lecithin. I put it in my coffee in the morning, and mix it with a Glycolean Meal Replacement Shake in the afternoon. The key to losing weight is 5-6 small low glycemic meals. The key to losing only fat and no lean muscle is Osolean. We have a metabolism booster too that I love, and a multi-vitamin that is especially designed for supporting weight loss.
          The products have worked for me - I am down over 40 lbs, and though I haven’t totalled the inches, I’d guess the total number of inches would be over 20. I need to refer to my original measurements and check again.
          Though I love these products, the real issue to losing weight and keeping it off is lifestyle changes. Just like with diets, if you use supplements to help you reach a goal, and then quit.... the weight will come back, and then some. For me, supplements are a part of my lifestyle change. Nutritionally we need to support our bodies, or else they crave nutrition and empty calories never satisfy that. Learning to choose wisely based on the glycemic index allows you to eat the things you love, coupled with other low glycemic foods to keep your blood sugar balanced. We also have products that support balanced blood sugar, but I don’t recommend them in lieu of eating healthy. Rather, I recommend them in conjunction with...
          I have not been able to figure out how to upload a pdf to the site. I am working on a more user friendly link to share Osolean with people. No matter what else people choose to do supplement wise, I think Osolean is an important component, especially if you have targeted areas to lose (like the tummy or bum.)
