aspartame-sweetner  (A very old article, Lol.  Chatelaine / April 1982)

This is a very old article that I thought was worth sharing with all of you.  It’s amazing how dumb of a species we are.  Our ignorance is killing us.  Here’s how it reads:

“Whether you’re a calorie counter, a diabetic or simply someone trying to limit the carbohydrate in her diet, there’s a new low-calorie sweetener on the market sure to interest you.  Already used in soft drinks, aspartame is not an artificial sweetener.  It’s actually a combination of two amino acids, the building blocks for protein, and has amazing sweetening power – almost 200 times that of sugar.  Unlike some artificial sweeteners, the tabletop version has a clean flavor and no bitter aftertaste.”

“Sold in drug and food stores as Equal, it comes in powder and tablet form.  One packet of powder has the same sweetening effect as 2 teaspoons of sugar, but adds only 4 calories compared to 36 for 2 teaspoons of sugar.  It can be used over cereals, fruits and in some recipes.”aspartame toxic

Well there you have it folks!  What it doesn’t tell you is that it’s the only product on the market that breaks the blood-brain barrier and causes neurological damage over time.  Apartame…legal poison.




thumbnailCAZGEW6AOur next transformation contest is getting underway.  This is a very popular contest as the results are phenomenal and the prizes are great.  You will have 6 weeks to fit into your skinny jeans, 2 sizes down, and work with a team of 5 to accumulate points and lose weight.  If you do not have a team, that’s okay, we’ll appoint you to a team.  You must work with your team to gain points, but your individual accountability also will pay the team or penalize it.  Bring your skinny jeans in when you come in for your screens.  NO STRETCHY JEANS.

This program works!  Everyone has been able to get into their skinny jeans at the end of 6 weeks.  Now it’s your turn!  Take the plunge, make yourself accountable and start making changes NOW!

Bring a friend to help support you, work together to gain strength, meet new people and develop bonds.

Here’s what you get:

6 weeks of workouts 3 times a week.  You will be provided a nutrition program during the contest, nutrition counseling, and weekly meetings with weigh-ins and accountability with your appointed coach.  Post contest party, with cheats!, to celebrate your successes.  Winning team, second place team and the individual with the greatest losses wins great prizes (to be posted soon).
