You Don’t Deserve To Be Fat

Posted by : DrDivad | In : Fitness


My Motto for life has always been “Truth Produces Trust”

The number one question I heard every day was; “Doc how do I lose this weight and keep it off.”

70% of the patients I took care of were at least 15 pounds overweight, and this weight was affecting every aspect of their life.

From back and joint pain to blood pressure, diabetes, & digestion problems. This extra weight also led to decreased energy, lowered self esteem, and – Settling for less in their life than they deserved.

The problem was they did not know the truth about weight loss, because the establishment, the fast food joints, the processed food industry, and yes even the health industry need people to stay fat so they make more money.

I spent years, day after day explaining the truth to patients about how their body works, what exercise works for fat elimination, which foods actually boost their metabolism, and the exact steps they needed to take to eliminate fat cells for life. Not just shrink them, And my patients lost fat cells by the bucket load.

The steps are not hard, but you can’t take the steps if you don’t know the truth.

With over 65% of our population over weight I know that I can’t spend face time with each individual.

But I do want to share with you those simple truths that will help you eliminate your fat cells.

Go to www.DoctorWeightLossProgram.com and gain FREE access to a truth revealing information That will help you Eliminate Your Fat Cells For Life. No matter what type of diet program you’re on, or how many pounds you want to lose you will want to grab this information now.

Don’t settle for less than you deserve. Don’t settle for simply shrinking fat cells; when what you want is to eliminate them.

“Habits That Make You Fat or Thin – Your Choice”

Posted by : DrDivad | In : Self Help


“Habits That Make You Fat or Thin – It Is Your Choice”

fat slobPeople don’t decide their future or their size. People choose habits and their habits shape their future and determines their waistline. A principle of life is sowing an reaping. As a man sows, so also will he reap.

Don’t plan to sow seeds of gluttony and eating junk food and get anything close to a harvest of a fit, healthy body.  To get a different harvest means you must sow the right seed. How long you have sowed the wrong seed will determine how much effort is needed to attain the desired harvest. You must change your habit to get a different result. And also weed the old habits out.

I love it when people take action. Actions lead to results. In the Bible 1 Corinthians 9:27 it says “train your body and make it your slave so you will not be disqualified.”  Training is not suggesting, and it is not saying if you want to. Training is doing it, putting information into action.

Many people each year want to get rid of a bad habit, a habit they chose in the past, based on bad information. You cannot simply get rid of a bad habit. You must exchange a bad habit for a good habit. It will take time, (at least 14 days) persistence and discipline. But the rewards will be enormous.

Discipline may cause discomfort, but the discomfort suffered to change a habit of eating the wrong food and incorrect exercise to high metabolism food and metabolism boosting exercises as taught inside Doctor Directed will be more than worth it as you live longer and with abundant energy, full health while looking both sexy and vibrant.

I have always found that 3 things are needed to build good habitsKgrayfit
1.    Knowledge
2.    Skill
3.    Desire

You must first have the right information to lose weight – Most people are relying on the wrong information. You must understand the basics for how your body works. Understand which exercises will in fact cause the elimination of fat cells, strengthen your heart and improve your muscle tone, and which ones won’t.

The difference between failure and success of any goal is more often than not the right information or the lack there of.

F.Y.I., long duration exercises like jogging, aerobic classes, typical treadmill workouts will actually cause you to store and gain fat. At best you will lose water weight and or muscle weight, shrinking your fat cells instead of eliminating them.  This is one of the main reasons for yo-yo dieting, and why most people fail at weight loss.

High metabolism style exercise as discussed inside the Doctor Directed Weight Loss Program can be done in less than 12 minutes per day and will be burning fat cells for up to 24 hours after.  This would be the type of habit I would recommend.

You need to take a hard look at where you get your information. Is it a reliable source or are they trying to sell you food in a box, a fast food taco, or maybe even a candy bar.

Next you must takmonkey with glassese that information and put it to use. Having a step by step plan allows you to turn weight loss into a skill you will never forget. Once you know the truth and how to apply it you will be unstoppable.

Desire is something each person must bring, but there are steps you can take to make sure the desire turns to real action. Knowing how to set a goal properly, how to talk to yourself, and how to encourage yourself, without making excuses will make sure you move the right direction and make wise choices.

Yes you must take responsibility for your own health, your own weight loss, and this means taking responsibility for your daily habits.

Whats Your Fat Risk Number?

Posted by : DrDivad | In : Fitness


fat-guyThe Majority of people are not aware that carrying extra fat around their waistline carries with it a significant increase in risk of heart disease, cancer and diabetes.

A survey of twelve thousand adults found most had no idea that a fat stomach was a sign of a build-up of a dangerous type of fat around their internal organs. This fat around your internal organs is strongly related with type II diabetes and heart disease, cancer and stroke.

It is theorized that visceral fat has a direct correlation to the release of proteins and hormones that cause irritation & inflammation, which in turn damages arteries, affects your liver, and determines how your body breaks down sugars and fats.

Measuring Your Fat Number Risk is Easy You probably have the most powerful girl_wt losstool available to determine your risk of diabetes and heart disease right at your fingertips – a plain ordinary tape measure.

Your BMI, and overall level of fitness are not the best indicators of insulin sensitivity, your mid waist size in many cases is much more reliable. Study after study clearly shows that measuring your waist size is one great way to predict your risk for diabetes.

Measuring your waist size is simple. With a tape measure, measure the distance around the smallest area of your abdomen below your rib cage and above your belly button.

If you’re an adult male, these measurements apply to your risk ratio:

  • Ideal waist measurement: between 30 and 36 inches
  • Overweight: between 36 and 40 inches
  • Obese: over 40 inches

For adult women:

  • Ideal waist measurement: between 27 and 33 inches
  • Overweight: between 33 and 37 inches
  • Obese: over 37 inches

The Two Keys to Getting Rid of Your Belly Fat

1. Eliminate white sugar and significantly reduce carbohydrates from your diet.

Did you know refined white sugar is much more addictive than cocaine? It’s one of the most addictive substances you can eat. And the consumption rate has risen dramatically over the last 10 years. The average person in America consumes over 100 pounds of sugar each year.

Refined sugar is not the only thing you must avoid, unfortunately the sugar substitutes like aspartame, NutraSweet and Splenda besides causing additional unhealthy chemical reactions in your body, they also cause you to crave more carbohydrates and increases your chances of increasing calorie intake.

Empty caloric foods should also be eliminated example chips, candy, pretzels. These processed junk foods are metabolized quickly into sugar in your body and should be eliminated from your diet if you suffer from excess weight, diabetes or high cholesterol.

Following a simple high metabolism nutrition plan and foods with a low glycemic index is an easy way to automatically reduce your body’s opportunity to make fat. Doctor Directed provides a complete list of metabolism boosting foods as well as glycemic index foods.

2. Exercise Daily With Burst Exercise. (Takes 7 minutes)

Studies show regular, burst exercise is ultimately important in getting rid of organ fat and keeping it off. Burst exercise also decreases the inflammatory actions of visceral fat that are linked to heart disease, cancer and diabetes.

The keys to proper exercise to eliminate fat cells are to do the right kind of exercise. Think like a sprinter not a long distance runner. Don’t overdo it when you start, and when done correctly only require about 7 -12 minutes per day.

There are three important variables with exercise:

  • Length of time – 7-12 minutes
  • Frequency – daily
  • Intensity – think like a sprinter not a long distance runner

If you don’t think you’re healthy enough to exercise with burst exercise; You are wrong. Burst exercise simply is exercising at full capacity. The definition of full capacity is different for each person.

Key Thought:

Choose your exercise (Doctor Directed Weight Loss Program provides over 30 exercise videos) and go as fast and hard as you can for 30 – 60 seconds… Rest or slow down the pace considerably for 60 seconds to 2 min then do it again. Repeat this process 3 – 4 times. You should gradually increase the speed or intensity of your workouts as your body responds.

To be effective you must reach what Dr Alan calls “Oxygen Debt” you should be panting for your breath. When you follow this plan as explained fully in the Doctor Directed Weight Loss program you will reach your fat loss goal with ease.

You’re Not Stuck With Your Family’s Genes

Posted by : DrDivad | In : Self Help


Time MagHave you seen the January 18th, 2010, issue of TIME magazine?

The cover story presents some exciting new research. It’s putting to rest the long-held belief that you’re stuck with what you got at birth.

If you think there’s nothing you can do to prevent getting a disease that runs in your family, think again.

As it turns out, you can literally reprogram your DNA – telling your body to slow aging, live longer, and prevent diseases.

Emerging New Science Puts You in the Driver’s Seat

This new branch of science is called epigenetics. Much to the surprise of the old way of thinking, your fate isn’t sealed by your DNA.

The evidence is startling: A study I read in Genome Research shows how one twin avoided disease while the other didn’t.

Identical twins share 100% of the same DNA. Not only do they share the same looks, they also usually share the same disorders and ailments.

For the study, researchers wanted to figure out why one twin had an autoimmune disease like lupus, and the other one didn’t, despite sharing identical genes.

The answer was found in their DNA. The twin that didn’t get lupus had genes that were programmed to keep the disease at bay. The one that did have it had that particular gene expression turned “on.”1

How was this possible? The choices each twin made had literally reprogrammed their DNA.

Express the Genes That Fight Disease…

The impact of this study is far reaching.

Just because a disease like cancer runs in your family doesn’t mean you’re helpless. You don’t have to sit and wait to get sick.

You have some control over whether or not a disease catches up with you.

The “epigenome” makes this possible.

Simply put, the epigenome is a complex network of chemical switches. These switches surround your DNA and turn genes “on” and “off.”

But here’s where it gets interesting.

Your epigenome interacts every day with your environment. That means everything you come into contact with and everything you put into your body has the power to turn genes on or off via different chemical pathways.

The end result is the ability to change the way your body expresses your genetic coding.

Live Longer, Beat Disease

Today’s modern world is already predisposing your genes toward negative “expressions” that include disease.

That’s because your body is constantly absorbing toxins like heavy metals and harmful chemicals. Everything from the detergent you use to clean your clothes to the plastic bottles you drink from are to blame.

Smoking, excess alcohol, and poor diets also interact with the epigenome, telling it to switch on the “disease” genes.

The good news is, taking control of your genetic code is simpler that you might think.

It’s just a matter of developing good habits that promote positive gene expression. By doing so, you’ll boost your chances of living a longer, healthier, disease-free life.

For starters, keep your heart and lungs in good shape. Exercise as I described in The Doctor Directed Weight Loss Program. Not only will this prevent a slew of diseases on its own, it’ll also make your body better able to respond to negative environmental factors.

Next, eat whole, unprocessed foods. That means eating a similar diet to that of our ancestors.

Choose healthy proteins like grass-fed beef or free-range chicken. Wild-caught fish is good as well.

Eat plenty of vegetables and some fruits (preferably berries, as they’re high in protective antioxidants). They contain critical methyl-precursors. These are compounds that play an important role in the chemical process that actually changes gene expression.

Finally, there are a few supplements you can take that are proven to positively affect gene expression:

Omega-3 Fatty Acids – One study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that taking omega-3 daily tells your genes to prevent inflammation and hardening of the arteries.3 After just six months, the participants in the study had experienced a positive change in 1,040 of their genes. The best way to get your omega-3s is with a quality fish oil supplement. Aim for 1,000 to 2,000 mg per day.

Resveratrol – This powerful antioxidant found in red wine has recently been found to counteract age-related genetic change 92 percent of the time.4 That means it prevents your DNA strands from deteriorating, letting them live longer. Ultimately, this keeps you vibrant and healthy. You can find resveratrol as a supplement at your local health-food store. I suggest 200 mg per day.

Antioxidant: Taking quality antioxidants has been proven in multiple studies to eliminate free radicals, dramatically reduce cancer, give you a higher quality of life and improve your chances of a longer life.

Vitamin B12 – This natural and inexpensive vitamin affects how long your DNA strands live. It does this by lengthening your DNA’s telomeres. Telomeres are a “tail” end to all your strands of DNA. Think of them as the biological countdown clock that tells your cells how long they have to live. As your cells divide, the telomeres become shorter. Once there’s no more telomere left, the cell dies. One of the best food sources are egg yolks and grass-fed beef. Otherwise you can supplement. Take anywhere from 100 to 500 mcg every day.

Change Your Children’s Genes

Did you know that any changes in your genetic expression made during your lifetime may get passed on to your children?

If you’re planning on having kids, this is huge. The actions you take today will most likely affect them and their own children.

One of the easiest ways to affect your gene expression in this lifetime is to live in a healthy environment. Take personal responsibility and eat right, take quality nutritional supplements  and exercise.

Did You Know Abdominal Fat Can Kill?

Posted by : DrDivad | In : Weight Loss


I thought this was an important topic to share with you because the reality is that most people simply don’t realize how dangerous their excess abdominal fat really is to their health.

The Hidden Dangers of Your Excess Abdominal Fat – It’s More Serious Than a Vanity Issue!

Did you know that the vast majority of people in this day and age have excess abdominal fat? The first thing that most people think of is that their extra abdominal fat is simply ugly, it is covering up their abs keeping them from being visible, and makes them self conscious about showing off their body.

What Else:

However, what most people don’t realize is that excess fat and abdominal fat in particular, is not only ugly, but is also a serious risk factor to your health. Scientific research has clearly demonstrated that although it is unhealthy in general to have excess body fat throughout your body, it is particularly dangerous to have excess abdominal fat.

There are two types of fat that you have in your abdominal area.

The first type that covers up your abs from being visible is called subcutaneous fat and lies directly beneath the skin and on top of the abdominal muscles.

The second type of fat that you have in your abdominal area is called visceral fat, and that lies deeper in the abdomen beneath your muscle and surrounding your organs. Visceral fat also plays a role in giving certain men that “beer belly” appearance where their abdomen protrudes excessively but at the same time, also feels sort of hard if you push on it.

Both Are Serious Health Risks

Both subcutaneous fat and visceral fat in the abdominal area are serious health risk factors, but science has shown that having excessive visceral fat is even more dangerous than subcutaneous fat. Both of them greatly increase your risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, sleep apnea, various forms of cancer, and other degenerative diseases.

Part of the reason visceral fat is particularly dangerous is that it apparently releases more inflammatory molecules into your body on a consistent basis and we now know that it is inflammation that is the cause of heart disease and many other debilitating conditions. It is interesting to note that even gastric bypass surgery and other surgical interventions, such as lypo-suction does not get rid of this visceral fat; the kind that is so dangerous.

Increase Quality of Life:

If you care about the quality of your life and if you care about your loved ones, reducing your abdominal fat should be one of your TOP priorities! There’s just no way around it. Besides once you finally get rid of all of that excessive ugly abdominal fat, you will find that your stomach will flatten out. So if you lose enough dangerous stomach fat, you will actually be able to visibly see those sexy six pack abs that everyone wants.

So what gets rid of extra abdominal fat?

Is there actually a REAL solution beyond all of the gimmicks and hype that you see in ads and on commercials for “miracle” fat loss products?

NO Quick Fix Solution

The first thing you must understand is that there is absolutely NO quick fix permanent solution. There are no pills or supplements of any sort that will help you lose your abdominal fat faster. Also, none of the gimmicky ab rockers, rollers, or ab belts will help get rid of abdominal fat either. You can’t spot reduce your stomach fat by using any of these worthless contraptions. It simply doesn’t work that way.

The ONLY solution to consistently lose your abdominal fat and keep it off for good is to combine a sound nutritious diet full of unprocessed natural foods with a properly designed strategic exercise program that stimulates the necessary hormonal and metabolic response within your body. Both your food intake as well as your training program are important if you are to get this right.

Scientific Study

I’ve actually even seen a particular study that divided thousands of participants into a diet-only group and an exercise/diet group. While both groups in this study made good progress, the diet-only group lost significantly LESS abdominal fat than the diet & exercise combined group.

There is a Right Exercise

Now the important thing to realize is that most exercise program you hear about for deits do not work for elimination of your abdominal fat. The majority of people that attempt to get into a good exercise routine are NOT working out effectively enough to really stimulate the loss of stubborn abdominal fat. I see this everyday at the gym.

Most people will do your typical boring ineffective cardio routines, throw in a little outdated body-part style weight training, and pump away with some crunches and side bends, and think that they are doing something useful for reducing their abdominal fat. Then they become frustrated after weeks or months of no results and wonder where they went wrong.

Danger Abdominal bulge

Well, the good news is that I’ve spent over a decade researching this topic, analyzing the science, and applying it “in the trenches” with myself as well as thousands of my clients from all over the world to see what works to really stimulate abdominal fat loss.

The entire solution… all of the nutritional strategies, as well as, exercise combinations and more have all been compiled in The Doctor Directed Weight Loss Program. The main point of this program is showing you the absolutely most effective strategies for losing your stubborn abdominal fat, so you can get rid of that serious health risk, as well as get a flatter more defined midsection.

If you follow the guidelines, you WILL lose your belly fat that has been plaguing you for years. This is not guesswork… it is a proven system that works time and time again for all of my clients on every corner of the globe that actually apply the information. If you apply it, the results will come. It’s really that simple.

The only reason most people fail in their fitness goals is they have been trusting the wrong information.

I want to help you succeed in finally getting rid of that extra abdominal fat that is not only UGLY, but also DANGEROUS.

Don’t waste another day allowing that nasty abdominal fat to kill your confidence as well as contribute to your risk for MAJOR diseases.
