Since 1986 4-million people have died from obesity related issues.
Currently, obesity is killing 300,000 individuals per year. Clearly,
FDA approved drugs are not working and fad diets and workout routines
are failing! As a result, pharmaceutical companies make fortunes
from unassuming victims who suffer from obesity related illnesses.
Fortunately, scientists have found a safe and natural cure. Due to
its inexpensive nature and unheard of effectiveness, few people are
aware of the "true" thermogen!
Remember what Sun Tzu said:
"Now an army may be likened to water, for just as flowing water
avoids the heights and hastens to the lowlands, so an army avoids
strength and strikes weakness…Thus, one able to gain victory by
modifying his tactics in accordance with the enemy situation may be
said to be divine." - Sun Tzu "The Art of War"
To defeat obesity we must avoid its strength (lack of sympathetic
activity) and strike its weakness (heat generation). The best weapon
to date is a "thermogen". Thermogens work so well that the FDA and
the media have counter attacked with deception by dismissing
thermogens and/or their ingredients as quackery and unsafe.
Curiously, pharmaceutical companies try in vain to duplicate the
efficacy and the mechanism (alpha and beta-agonist) of a thermogen
with toxic drugs like Fenfluramine, Dexfenfluramine, Meridia, and
Wellbutrin (Zyban). Even more disappointing, many supplement
advocates fall victim to the propaganda and also dismiss the
thermogen as unsafe without considering the research! Meanwhile,
thousands of people die from obesity. Never fear, in light of the
scientific studies, a thermogen is the safe and natural way to fight
fat, guaranteed! The results speak for themselves.
Studies show that a true thermogen has a "positive influence on body
composition, increasing fat loss by 100% and decreasing muscle loss
by 72%". Further, researchers discovered that after 5 months of use,
without exercise, the average weight loss in fat was 11.5 lbs
compared to .066 lbs gained on a placebo!
It is important to understand that a thermogen is not a weight loss
pill but rather a fat loss pill. If an athlete does not have fat to
lose, they will not lose weight. Instead, they will gain the direct
benefits of enhanced endurance, strength, and focus. Indirectly, this
will lead to faster gains in the gym and enhanced overall health.
So, why is a thermogen so effective? Scientists worldwide have
concluded that Most Obesities kNown Are Low In Sympathetic Activity,
AKA MONA LISA. This means that just as diabetics do not release
insulin - obese people do not release enough ADRENALINE or
NORADRENALINE from the sympathetic nervous system. Therefore, in many
cases, obesity has less to do with exercise and diet and more to do
with an inactive sympathetic nervous system. Hence, a thermogen works
because it activates alpha and beta receptors of the sympathetic
nervous system which elucidates a fat burning cascade within the
body. Specifically, it causes the body to burn fat (fatty acids)
while preserving muscle (amino acids) by triggering the release of
"hormone sensitive lipase". To achieve this through exercise an
individual would have to workout for 1.5 to 4 hours! This is why
endurance athletes do not have a problem with obesity and why lifting
weights and dieting can have no effect on fat loss.
A thermogen also enhances endurance and strength by initiating a
process known as glycolysis. Glycolysis allows the body to utilize
ATP more readily. Due to the increased availability of ATP, muscles
are able to contract longer and with increased force. Finally, due to
its ability to increase neurotransmitters, serotonin and dopamine, in
the brain a true thermogen greatly enhances mental health and focus!
These synergistic affects are due to a 1:10:10 ratio of the natural
products ephedrine, caffeine, and aspirin. A 10-mg ephedrine, 100-mg
caffeine, 100-mg aspirin stack is an example. These compounds work
together to not only trigger the sympathetic nervous system but also
to ensure that the effects are long lasting to achieve maximum
results. "New generation" thermogens do exist which have various
compounds added to the classic stack. If done properly, the thermogen
can be greatly enhanced. If done improperly, the health benefits of a
thermogen can be greatly compromised. For instance, CHROMIUM
PICOLINATE is often added to various weight loss products.
Unfortunately, CHROMIUM PICOLINATE and it's derivatives are KNOWN
CARCINOGENS among the scientific community. The key is understanding
the definition of what a good thermogen is. This is important to
note, however, it is beyond the scope of this article.
The obvious question remains. Is a thermogen safe? Researchers at
Harvard and Columbia Universities found thermogens to be ABSOLUTELY
safe and effective! The scientists from the General Accounting Office
(GAO) of the U.S Govt. reached these same conclusions in its report
to Congress in 1999! In Denmark, a thermogen is a licensed
prescription drug. Over the last two years doctors have prescribed
9.6 million doses. Of this amount, only 86 adverse side effects have
been reported. These side effects were nothing more than tremors and
insomnia, which were a result of large doses.
Sun Tzu states:
"If you know the enemy and know yourself you need not fear the result
of a 100 battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every
victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the
enemy or yourself, you will succumb in every battle."
If you don't incorporate this vital information into your weight-loss
plans than you are sure to be defeated by obesity and suffer from
obesity related diseases. Conversely, play it smart by utilizing
this life saving knowledge and the chances of beating obesity or
establishing your ideal physique will soon become a reality!
