A Fat Loss Supplement that actually works

image-1

There are many weight loss methods, but at the end of the day, we are all emotional beings and are likely to eat whatever makes us feel good at the time and possibly regret it later.

A big part of my job (and passion) is to find the easiest and most effective products and methods for health and weight loss. This year at the FILEX convention, the latest technology that got everyone excited was the mobile DEXA scans or body fat scanning machines.

In April, my DEXA scan revealed a body fat percentage of 23%! Too much for a health professional who specializes in weight loss.

Despite maintaining a disciplined diet and exercise regime, I found myself gradually getting slower, stiffer and fatter. Was this the middle aged spread everyone talks about?

When a fellow health practitioner approached me with the Keto-OS supplement, I was hesitant as I already practice so many healthy habits and take supplements, but I was soon to discover that this supplement works on a completely different level to anything else out there.

‘Keto-OS’ puts you into Ketosis. Simply put, it changes you from a ‘sugar-burner’ to a ‘fat-burner’.

Here it is important to state that I did not force any dietary changes or do anymore than my normal 4-5 workouts/week. I have always been sceptical of dietary fads and tricks that supposedly allow you to drop weight quickly and safely. My preference has always been enhanced health and weight loss through good nutrition and wholesome, organic foods. However, this supplement – created has proven to be the exception.

After a couple of weeks of taking Keto-OS, I noticed that I even stopped craving the spelt pumpkin seed sourdough bread I frequently enjoyed, my gluten-free buns were left on the plate and I no longer needed my morning green bar (green vegetables & honey)…never thought I’d farewell these from my diet!

After around 5 weeks, I just didn’t feel like eating as much food, and to me, food is one of life’s greatest pleasures.

How it works:

When your body is in ketosis, you crave and eat less sugar and starchy carbs, particularly grains and you naturally crave healthy fats. Keto-OS puts your body into ketosis faster and more easily than reaching ketosis through diet and exercise alone.

Reasons to love Keto-OS:

Since taking Keto-OS, I have more energy for work, training and my ever-demanding kids (Bless them). With another baby soon to join our family, I know I’m going to need these elevated energy levels even more. I’m also less stiff and sore after heavy exercise and I have no feelings of dietary deprivation.

This last point is huge, no one wants to ever feel deprived. And feelings of deprivation are the core of why most diets don’t work and are not sustainable past the 2-week mark.

Unlike other diets or cleanses, with Keto-OS you don’t have give up anything! You simply mix the supplement with water in the morning after breakfast or before training and eat how you normally would. Gradually your body will tell you what it wants.

Drawbacks of this product:

  • Time and shipping:

It takes 4-5 days to get here from the US and the shipping costs around $AU40.

  • Taste:

For a couple of my clients, the taste was too sweet; personally I loved it. You can mix things such as raspberries to the orange or more cacao to the chocolate powder to squash the sweetness.

Flavours available are chocolate, orange, creme, swiss cacao or tropical punch.

 

People like how they feel on Keto-OS:

All of my clients that bought a first box have since purchased a second, third or fourth.

If you measure weight loss according to a number on the scales, with Keto-OS your weight loss on the scales isn’t as fast as everyone likes to see. What is important to note is that this is a FAT LOSS supplement and by becoming a sugar-burner rather than a fat-burner, you will lose fat and gain muscle. This is why I recommend getting a DEXA scan that measure fat loss and muscle gain rather than measuring your progress by the bathroom scales that simply display your overall weight. If you’re not up for a scan, notice how your clothes fit, or better yet, use my own personal favourite measure of change – before and after selfies.

The bottom line is people are going to eat and drink whatever they feel like at the time. With this supplement, you will feel like less caffeine, sugar, starchy carbs and will feel like more healthy fats and you will also feel like eating less food overall.

Why I eat Full Fat (including saturated fats) to lose weight

Eating Full Fat to lose weight

Up until a few decades ago everybody ate full-fat…or should I more accurately say FULL-NATURAL foods such as meat, milk, butter, etc.

Let’s take a quick look at how fat, in particular saturated fat became the evil nutrient that supposedly clogged arteries, caused cancer and stopped hearts…

When heart disease became the number 1 killer in the USA (1960’s), the government demanded answers. They wanted a villain to blame and something to hang…sadly and inaccurately saturated fats became the scapegoat.

20 years later in the 1980’s fats & oils were still at the top of the ‘healthy’ diet pyramid…as in only consume tiny amounts. After obesity and other health-related issues continued to run rampant it finally came to light that there were different types of fats – Good and Bad…well guess what? There are Good and Bad saturated fats too!

Did you know there are over 12 different types of saturated fats?

I wholeheartedly agree that the saturated fats found in hot dogs, pizzas and deep-fried foods are the artery-clogging kind. However, natural fats, including the saturated fats found in red meat, butter and coconuts were and still are inaccurately grouped with these harmful man-made saturated fats.

If we turn back the clock a little further these saturated fats in their natural, organic state allowed humans to survive and thrive for more than 40,000 years – years which were free from high cholesterol, heart disease and cellulite I might add.

Of course we were much more active back in caveman times but the fact remains it wasn’t until we started tampering with fats back in the early 1900s that these natural, nutrient-rich fats became harmful to humans.

All you need to know is that the foods such as ‘no-cholesterol’ margarines and the thousands of other health-food products proudly claiming zero saturated fats are usually the ones containing the artificial TRANS fats that heavily contribute towards:
• Inflammation issues (everything from headaches to obesity)
• High cholesterol
• Heart disease
• Many other modern day health ailments commonly treated with medications

In contrast, the saturated fats found in breast milk, organic grass-fed meats and full-fat dairy are the nutrient-dense fats that our gut and liver can easily: recognise, digest, metabolise, absorb and turn into abundant energy.

Think about it simply – It does not make sense that modern man with his chemical formulas and laboratory’s is better equipped to produce more nutritious food than Mother Nature with all of her infinite wisdom.

It has been reported that millions of people in western society fill their shopping trolleys 90-100% food ‘products’ – many of these proudly claim they are low in fat and contain little to no saturated fats, yet obesity rates continue to soar.

The World Health Organisation estimates that there are 1.5 billion overweight and obese people in the world and this trend shows few signs of slowing down, despite the thousands of low-fat products that flood the supermarket shelves, our tables and eventually our bellies.

Bottom line – When you eat the right kind of healthy fats (even saturated fats) your body is nourished and your appetite is satisfied much sooner, you will no longer need to rely on the unreliable will power to stop you over-eating.

The truth is that only BAD fats make you fat, as well as refined carbohydrates and excess sugar.
