Tired of Dieting Failures?

If you are like countless millions of others, the more you have "dieted" over the years, the heavier you have become. In fact, most seriously overweight people are really not interested in weight loss programs . . . because they are tired of failure.

What is the ugly truth about "Quick Fixes?"

The first weight lost on the typical low calorie diet is, of course, water loss. Since a pound of fat is 3500 calories and a person's caloric needs for a day are often considerably less, it might take two days of absolute fasting for a woman to metabolize a pound of body fat.

Even a man, whose caloric intake needs might be much higher, would usually take over a day on a fasting regimen to metabolize a pound of fat. So when people fall for the enticing "quick fix"  promises, they are usually experiencing an artificial weight drop, which is largely temporary water loss or---worse yet---muscle tissue.

Sensible Approaches For Weight Management

While the importance of adopting a sensible moderate calorie approach of well-balanced food, which provides the minimum recommended daily allowances is vital, a special element with tremendously exciting potential for permanent weight management has recently gained international prominence as Olympic athletes have publicized its use. This magic element is L-carnitine.

Fat Burning

L-carnitine's major role in the body is to shuttle fats into the mitochondria where they are burned for energy. Mitochondria are actually the "fat-burning chambers" within the body's cells. Without L-carnitine, fat cannot enter the inner cell to be metabolized.

Appetite Suppressant

L-carnitine promotes fat-burning which results in higher energy levels and a sense of well-being. It also acts as a mild appetite suppressant. It is the only non-surgical way to actually successfully spot-reduce, because L-carnitine triggers the metabolism of fat in areas where it is collected!

Muscle Tone

Besides being a fat burner, an appetite suppressant, and an energy promoter, L-carnitine is also recognized for its ability to promote improved muscle tone. The October 1984 issue of Prevention magazine related, "After 18 years of gradual muscle disintegration, a 23-year-old woman was a quadriplegic. But daily doses of L-carnitine turned this slow decline around in 10 days. And after eight months of L-carnitine treatment, her muscles were back to normal."

Become Slimmer and Healthier

Since lean muscle tissue burns approximately five times as many calories as fatty tissue, the introduction of L-carnitine into the diet can assist you in permanently becoming slimmer if you have excess body fat, and healthier all over with a strengthened heart muscle. Another key element for fat metabolizing and regulating blood sugar levels is GTF-Chromiumtm. GTF-Chromiumtm has helped thousands of people control sugar cravings too and is proven to lower serum cholesterol.

When you combine L-carnitine, GTF Chromium and a natural approach to metabolic enhancement, you can be on your way to a sensible fat-burning program that will really work.

And the best part is that you actually lost fat while turning your metabolic clocks back up and improving energy levels.

You too can discover that there is life after dieting.
