How and Why Our Skin Ages

By Wilaiporn Kempka

We all want our skin to look young and be wrinkle free. It has always been like this and it is not going to change. Nowadays, there are hundreds, even thousands of treatments available to keep your skin wrinkle free and young looking. Anti-aging business is a multi-billion business as people are willing to do almost anything to stop their skin from aging. However, many people do not know why our skin ages, why wrinkles start to show and therefore spend thousands of dollars on products that give only short-time effects. To be able to fight the aging of the skin with success and stop wrinkles or at least minimize them, one should know the factors that cause skin aging.
We can distinguish two types of factors responsible for skin aging and wrinkles: internal factors and external factors. Internal factors are things inside our bodies, such as genes. External factors are those that affect our skin from the outside, such as lifestyle, sunlight, etc.
Internal Factors
We all age and there is really nothing we can do about it. Our genes determine how we go through this process of aging. Some people age faster than the others. However, the first signs of skin aging start to show when we are in our mid-20s! Early, isn't it? Of course those signs are very mild and wrinkles are not yet really visible but still, this is when the process starts. At this age, our skin cells are not able to regenerate as fast as they used to which results in older looking skin. Our skin is not as elastic as it was in our teenage days and wrinkles might start to appear. Luckily, those wrinkles are not yet really visible and most probably won't be for another few decades.
External Factors
As I already mentioned, those factors affect our skin from the outside. Out lifestyle greatly affects how fast our skin ages. Things such as sunlight, smoking, alcohol greatly affect how fast our skin ages and how fast wrinkles start to appear.
Sunlight
Sunlight is a big enemy of your skin and you should avoid it if you can. Yes, we all love a little suntan but remember, sunlight makes your skin age faster. Never forget to apply sunscreen when going out. And I am not talking here only about going to the beach. Whenever you go out, apply sunscreen! It is not only to prevent wrinkles but also protect you from even worse things such as a skin cancer. Sunscreen is a must especially for those who are fair-skinned. Fair skin is more prone to aging and wrinkles then dark skin, so wearing a sunscreen is obligatory.
Smoking
Smoking does not only causes cancer and other kinds of diseases. It does not only affect your internal organs but also your skin. If you want to look young, be wrinkle free and enjoy beautiful skin for a long time, you must stay away from nicotine. Nicotine intake speeds up the break down of skin cells. It results in your skin aging faster and wrinkles to appear very quickly.
You have probably noticed that those who smoke look older than those who do not. Their skin is yellow and full of wrinkles. Those effects are caused by nicotine present in cigarettes.
If you are smoking stop now! Good news is that the skin of those who stopped smoking shows signs of improvement. And those positive changes show shortly after one quit smoking!
Conclusion
We all age, some of us faster and some of us later. There is really nothing we can do about it. We can help our skin to look younger longer by protecting it from the sunlight and with healthy lifestyle. But wrinkles will come to us sooner or later. Beauty products and all sorts of treatments only delay the symptoms of skin aging. They can also hide wrinkles for some time but they will become visible. It is difficult to accept for some of us but it is how it is. Do not view skin aging and wrinkles as diseases. They are not. They are yet another stage of the development of our bodies.

Acne & The Myths about Acne

For more information on this visit EverythingAcne 

Acne is a universal condition. A person is more likely to develop acne than any other disease.
It usually starts in adolescence and resolves by the mid twenties, but may continue beyond this age. Some degree of acne will affect over 90% of men and over 80% of all women at some time
in their lives, and many of these cases may require the help of a physician.
Acne develops earlier in women than in men and this may be due in part to the fact that, in general, women mature earlier than men. In fact, comedones (black heads and white heads) 
may be an early sign of puberty and often precede more inflammatory lesions (pimples) by two 
to three years.
Acne is a chronic, inflammatory condition that affects a particular type of pore or follicle know 
as the sebaceous follicle. These sebaceous follicles contain large oil glands (known as sebaceous glands) with deep and winding canals and a small, thin hair. These follicles are 
most numerous and the largest on the face but can also be found on the ears, neck, chest, 
back, and upper arms. Because of their structure, they are prone to the development of comedones. These comedones may then progress into pimples, pustules, and even cysts or nodules.
Despite an attempt to dispel many of the common myths regarding acne and acne therapy, many people remain confused as to whether there is any truth behind these myths. Below is a discussion of some of the more common misconceptions that still exist...
MYTHS ABOUT ACNE
Diet and acne Chocolate. Greasy food. Candy. They all make acne worse, right? Not really. While the relationship between certain foods and acne remains one of the most commonly held beliefs, these beliefs are not supported. There have been several studies that have attempted to prove a link between diet and acne, but most have failed to prove a relationship. A recent study did suggest that milk intake, specifically skim mild could be related to acne as well as a smaller relationship with sherbet, cottage cheese, and cream cheese. The though proposed was that increased hormones found in the these dairy products were causing the acne. However, the data collected in this study was based on recall of acne, and did not actually involve a clinical diagnosis. In addition, there has been talk about the "western" diet and its overall effect on acne. The only study to look at this however, did not prove any significant relationship. So, to date, no overall conclusions can be made regarding the relationship between diet and acne. That being said, if it seems that a certain food is making your acne worse, it is best to try and avoid that food.



Hygiene/dirt and acne
It is a commonly held belief that dirt makes acne worse. However, when looking at the key components of acne, we see that this is a deeper process, and that dirt is actually not a factor. In fact, there is no scientific evidence to support the fact that dirt contributes to acne.
Face washing and acne
Most physicians recommend washing the face gently twice a day. There is a misconception however that washing the face more may help to further decrease acne. The opposite may be true. Increased or vigorous facial washing may cause a mechanical effect that can worsen acne. Face washing helps most if the use of a therapeutic cleanser is used and many physicians will include a prescription cleanser in individual acne regimens.
Stress and acne
The relationship of stress and acne has recently been re-evaluated. A recent study, though small, indicated that stress may in fact be associated with worsening of acne. It is felt that stress may release additional hormones that may influence acne formation. The study was small, but it seems that stress and acne may indeed be related.
Touching the face and acne
Similar to other myths, it is felt that touching the face may aggravate acne due to contamination with bacteria, adding dirt to the face, or adding more oil to the face. These ideas have never been supported. The only way that touching the face influences acne is by a mechanical phenomenon in which resting on a hand, etc. can cause breakdown of the follicles in an individual who is prone to acne (acne mechanica). In addition, a more extreme form of touching the face is picking at pimples and scratching them (acne excoriee). This type of behavior clearly can worsen acne.
Popping pimples and scarring
One commonly help belief is that popping pimples can make them disappear faster. While this may be true in rare cases of very superficial lesions, attempting to pop deeper lesions may actually worsen acne. When a deeper acne lesion in manipulated, there is a risk of pushing the inflammation deeper into the skin causing the follicle to stretch, distort, or even rupture. This then attracts more inflammation which causes the lesion to actually lasts longer and may even lead to scarring.
Sleep and acne
While there is no clear cut evidence that lack of sleep worsens acne, some feel that lack of sleep occurs most commonly during periods of high stress. This high stress level as previously discussed may contribute to worsening of acne.
Hydration (water consumption) and the skin
It is a widespread belief that drinking more water will help to hydrate the skin and that this can improve acne. This belief however is significantly flawed. There is no proof that increased water consumption can help acne. In addition, there is no scientific or studied proof that it can help hydrate the skin.
Tanning and acne
Many people fell that sunlight and tanning helps their acne. This may be true for a few reasons. First of all, a tan may help to cover up the appearance of blemishes. In addition, similar to the use of blue-light and lasers, UV light may help to kill bacteria and thus help acne. With this being said however, broad exposure to the sun or tanning booths is not recommended for the treatment of acne as the potential risks of skin cancer and photo aging far out weight the benefits it can provide in treating acne.
Exercise and acne
For some people, exercise may seem to help acne and likely this is from stress reduction. In others however there is the belief that sweat blocks pores and that this can in fact worsen or cause acne. A recent, small study however did not demonstrate any effect between physical activity induced sweat and the formation of acne. One explanation for the development of acne in athletes is acne mechanica as this can develop from heat, pressure, friction and occlusion that often occurs in individuals wearing heavy equipment while playing sports.

Rodan + Fields Review

Yes there are some people that worry about a Rodan And Fields Scam. You’re not alone here. I have been scammed before so I have researched this company and found these important facts that will put your mind at ease.
Would it please you to know that the Rodan and Fields skincare company has been in business since 2002? Not only has it been in business for 8 years, it is headed up by 2 Stanford University graduates, Dr. Kathy Fields and Dr. Katie Rodan.
These 2 beautiful and talented medical professionals saw a huge need in the marketplace and perhaps, more importantly, an opportunity to bless the lives of millions of people who suffer from one of the most challenging problems in life, low self-esteem.
So many people never achieve their full potential due to low self esteem.
These 2 doctors really wanted to help people in this area.
There are lots of skincare products on the market but not many can reverse the ill affects of sun damaged skin. This is where Rodan And Fields come into play.
You’d be surprised if you knew how many people throughout the world suffer from sun damaged skin. Rodan And Fields markets a clinically proven product known as “reverse” that can provide tremendous benefits to those in this category.
Are you still concerned about a Rodan And Fields Scam?
Take a look at the following facts.
1. They’ve got a long history in the marketplace and many satisfied customers. The market place is a great judge of quality and customers continue to vote for Rodan and Fields with their dollars.
2. Rodan and Fields belongs to the DSA. This is a prestigious body who sets high standards in the direct sells industry.
3. Dr. Rodan and Dr. Fields have chosen to be heavily involved in charitable giving – one of the hallmarks of any great company.
4.The Rodan and Fields direct selling brand is supported by the reputation of two of the most highly regarded leaders in the world of skincare. Their track record as skincare product developers and as opinion leaders in the beauty press are part of the assets that work to support Rodan and Fields Consultants as they introduce others to the benefits of the products, the product-support programs, and the potential lifestyle benefits of the business opportunity.
You can see from the following points that this company truly does bring great value to the market place.

Still need more proof read these SUCCESS STORIES    or    SEE WHAT EDITORS ARE SAYING 

Another website that helped me was Supreme Skin Care and their article 






I want to share a comment from a reader and Supreme Skin Cares response to his comment.
  
Randi Tindel { 02.27.10 at 9:36 pm }

Hi Renee- I have been in sales for 14 years and am considering the Rodan and Fields business opportunity. Here are my concerns:
1. Price is high for today’s economy
2. They don’t have a lot of products. They only have several “sets” of products that they sell as a regimen set.
3. Who are your customers?
4. Who are your Good customers?
5. Who have you gotten involved in the business under you?
6. Have the people you got involved been succesful?
7. (I am assuming you like the products)- But, why do you like the products?
8. What specific results have you seen?
9. How long did it take for you to build your business?
10. How long did it take for the people you got involved to build their business?
11. Has your return on investment been enough to justify all the time and money you have spent on this business and why (whether yes or no)
12. Are the majority of your customers single consumers, or spa/salon owners?
13. How much time a week do you spend on your business?

Supreme Skin Cares Response to the questions.

Renee Olson { 05.04.10 at 1:18 pm }

@ Randi and Bob, Thank you for your interest in Rodan and Fields. All of Randi’s questions are very good questions. I would think it to be odd if one didn’t ask similar questions before getting involved in any business.
So here are my answers. Keep in mind that these are MY answers, the way I see it.
1. Statistically (according to EBay, use Terapeak to verify) skin care will hold up in spite of our economy. If someone stops using skin care, it’s not because of the price, it’s because the products don’t work.
2. Even though skin is a complex issue, why does a product line have to be complex? Use the solution tool and see what it reveals about your skin. R and F uses multi med therapy to address the most common skin conditions presented to dermatologists. When the right products combine in the right order, people see results. Isn’t that what it’s about? Getting results. I’m sure they will add new products as technology improves, but the products need to actually address skin issues.
3. My customers are typically women between the ages of 30 and 65.
4. My good customers are women between the ages of 30 and 65.
5 and 6. My friends and family and their referrals have taken on various roles in the partnership with Rodan and Fields. Some are business partners, some are product users and some are referring sources. Every role is important. R and F is very different then what you may have been exposed to in the past. As far as success, your question is too broad. My idea of success may not be the same as yours. I have set my business to make 6 figures by September 2011. Is that your goal too?
Every consultant must have goals… If you set your goals and achieve them, then you are successful.
7. Yes, I use the product. If you don’t use the product and actually like it, why would you sell it? Well, of course, to make money. There’s lots of products on the market that don’t work AND just as many people who sell stuff that doesn’t work. (Just my opinion)
R and F products have shrunk my crater size pores significantly. It’s cleared up an acne issue that I didn’t know I even had. I thought my monthly flare ups didn’t count. My light brown spots on the right side of my lip have diminished and my deep creases have been reduced tremendously. I go to network meetings and get up close to other women and point out that my swimming pools are gone.
But the long and the short of it is… I was an internet marketer looking for a product to sell online. I didn’t know when I joined, if the products really worked. If they didn’t work , they could join the rest of the products in my bathroom that don’t work. 6 months later, I can’t live without my products. I feel pretty.
I wasn’t avoiding your questions all this time, I just knew I couldn’t answer your questions in one sentence. This blog started out as a method to attract prospects, but will never be as productive as what I can do with a phone, email, facebook, MySpace, chamber meetings and networking events.
8. Has been answered above.
9. I will always be building my business. I want to work hard for 3 to 5 years and then maintain.
10. Some join immediately. Some join after they use the products. This business is not for everyone. Never chase people. It’s either a good fit for them or not. Do you really want to MAKE someone do their job? Or would you rather work with someone who says, “show me the way.”
11. Yes and no. As I’ve said, I’m an internet marketer. So I spend a lot of time on the internet doing things that are not specific to the system of Rodan and Fields. This blog for instance is a huge drain on my time. It is certainly not part of the R and F system, but I felt compelled to at least build the site. Truth be told… I use the two websites from corporate and drive traffic to that.
My husband and I own a commercial programming business that runs on autopilot for the most part and generates residuals. We’ve had that since 1998. We had an interior design store that went under and we lost over $100,000. If you want to be a business owner, you have to grasp the fact that this is a cheap buy in.
12. I don’t pursue salons…
13. I used to work about 10 hours a week. Now I have reworked my hours to 30.

Randi, I have to admit that it feels like you want me to convince you to do this business. Or maybe you feel you should compare yourself to me. In either case, you’re doing yourself an injustice. All you need to ask yourself is… am I coachable. If the answer is yes, you should become a consultant. If you don’t, you may end up “shoulding” on yourself. Why look back in life and say…”I should have joined Rodan and Fields.”

Resveratrol and Weight Loss



Resveratrol Antioxidants and Weight Loss: A Good Pairing?The golden rule in weight loss is pretty simple: take in fewer calories than you expend in exercise. However, as any dieter will tell you, it’s far from easy. Americans spend billions of dollars a year on weight loss supplements, exercise programs and other diet aids—and still we can’t seem to win the battle of the bulge—even when we get desperate enough to try risky surgery or fad diets.Recently a new product has come to light that may help people trying to lose weight stay on the healthy end of the spectrum: Resveratrol Select, which is unlike many diet supplements in that it uses a combination of natural and herbal ingredients designed to help the body stay healthy while losing weight.How? By mimicking certain aspects of the Mediterranean diet.Studies have shown that part of America’s war with weight lies in the uniquely modern American combination of stressful lifestyle and fast-food consumption, and that the Mediterranean diet and lifestyle seem to be more conducive to healthier weight levels and longevity. In fact, much as been made on the news in recent months of the purported “French Paradox,” (how the French eat a high-fat diet, enjoy rich desserts, drink wine and still have better cardiovascular health than the rest of us). One of the biggest differences between the American and French diet seems to be the wine consumption, and red wine (a staple on most Mediterranean tables) contains one of nature’s most powerful antioxidants, resveratrol, which is a key ingredient in Resveratrol Select.In addition to wine, resveratrol is also found in grape skins, blueberries, cranberries and other plants, and recent animal and in vitro studies indicate that it can have a positive effect on helping to maintain healthy cholesterol levels, supporting insulin health and optimizing metabolic and immune pathways that protect cells and improve mitochondrial function.
* And one capsule of Resveratrol Select includes as much resveratrol as 200 glasses of wine—without the added calories that alcohol can add to the waistline.But consuming resveratrol alone isn’t enough to help with weight loss—so the manufacturers of Resveratrol Select also added a different type of antioxidant, Green Tea Extract (EGCG), which could make a big difference. Over time, green tea consumption helps increase metabolism, burn fat and reduce fat storage due to its caffeine and L-theanin content, which can be pivotal in helping to maintain energy for exercise.
 *Resveratrol Select combines these two powerful antioxidants with yet another energy boosting ingredient, Chromium, a niacin-based mineral that plays an important role in how the body uses insulin to burn sugars, carbohydrates, fats, and proteins for energy.
*Although relatively new to the market, Resveratrol Select seems to be making a big splash, and many people are taking advantage of the free trial offer to see how well the product works for them. The trial offer also includes two bonus tools to help with weight loss: an e-book with over 70 weight loss tips, and a weight loss visualization audio.Of course, consuming fewer calories while burning more is the most efficient form of weight loss, and it’s always a good idea to inform your doctor before taking a weight loss supplement, but this new combination herbal supplement is worth a look for those concerned about maintaining good health while losing weight.

Tacfit Commando Reviews - Does Tacfit Commando Work and is it For You?

Tacfit Commando is a workout program that's based on workout routines by Israeli top army units, counter terrorism squads, bodyguards, and law enforcement agencies. It was created by Scott Sonnon who actually worked with many of these units and created special workout routines to help them improve their physical ability and prepare them for their missions.
This is not a fat loss program so if you're looking for a diet, this isn't it. In addition, this is not a muscle building program. In fact, it's not about how you look at all.
Although I have no doubt that by using this program you will eliminate a lot of stubborn fat and develop that lean, athletic, and muscular body that soldiers in special units grow, the focus of the program is on the kind of workouts that can help you boost your physical ability to a whole new level. The muscle growth you will experience isn't the bulky sort many people gain from gym workouts but a more functional one.
So, if what you care about most of all is your appearance, Tacfit Commando may not be the right program for you. If you want to get yourself to a whole new fitness level and get an awesome body as a side effect, and provided that you're not scared of a massive challenge, this may be just what you seek.
There's no doubt that Tacfit Commando does work. No military unit uses workouts that don't produce results. Soldiers are constantly judged and their results are frequently measured. You can't get away with half measures in any self respecting army.
This is a program made up entirely of bodyweight exercises. You don't need any equipment for any of the workouts. In addition, as the schedule of soldiers is tight, the workouts are very short. They make up for it in their intensity. The workouts in this program can be very challenging for someone who's used to standard weight lifting. They involve a lot more movement, flexibility, and core strength.
The workouts are divided into different levels so you can progress gradually through the exercises. In addition, each exercise is explained and shown in detail, so you can easily learn the proper form and technique.
Get this program only if you're prepared for some hard work. I have no doubt that you will feel and look much more athletic as a result of following this program but be aware of the effort involved.
All in all, this is a high quality, unique program that can get you fitter than ever.
Visit Tacfit Commando Review to learn more about this program.

Beta glucan Lowers Blood Lipids


BERLIN—Barley beta-glucan reduces serum lipid levels, according to research presented in April at the First International Congress on Pre-Diabetes and Metabolic Syndrome.

In the six-week study, 76 men and 79 women with hypercholesterolemia, aged

25 to 73, completed a four-week lowfat diet prior to baseline. At the beginning of the trial, test subjects were randomly allocated to one of four treatment groups or a control group and assayed for blood lipids and other cardiovascular disease (CVD) biomarkers. During the course of the study, test groups were administered 3 g and 5 g doses of low molecular weight (LMW) or high molecular weight (HMW) barley beta-glucan (from Cargill) twice daily, in cereal and juice.

Posttreatment assessment of blood lipids and other CVD biomarkers revealed improvements in low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, triglycerides, markers of glycemic control

(glycosylated hemoglobin, HOMA model) and a key marker of inflammation (hs-CRP).

The researchers concluded both doses of LMW and HMW barley beta-glucan improved blood lipids over a six-week treatment period.

Sleep Disorder / Sleep Apnea

During normal breathing, air passes through the throat on its way to the  lungs. The air travels past the soft palate, uvula, tonsils, and tongue. When a  person is awake, the muscles in the back of the throat tighten to hold these  structures in place preventing them from collapsing and/or vibrating in the  airway. During sleep, the uvula and soft palate frequently vibrate causing the  distinctive sounds of snoring.

The LAUP procedure is a laser surgical procedure designed to sequentially  trim and shorten these structures, thus preventing or reducing snoring.

Risks and Complications
You have the right to be informed that the surgery may involve risks of  unsuccessful results, complications, or injury from both known and unforeseen  causes. Because individuals vary in their tissue circulation and healing  processes, as well as anesthetic reactions, ultimately there can be no guarantee  made as to the results or potential complications. The following complications  have been reported in the medical literature. This list is not meant to be  inclusive of every possible complication. They are listed here for your  information only, not to frighten you, but to make you aware and more  knowledgeable concerning this surgical procedure.

1. Failure to resolve the snoring. Most  surgeons feel that about 85% of patients who undergo a LAUP will have a  significant or complete resolution in their snoring; and an additional  percentage of patients will notice reduced levels of snoring such that their  sleep partners will report that it's level is no longer offensive.

2. Failure to cure sleep apnea or other  pathological sleep disorders. Pathological sleep disorders, like sleep apnea,  are medical problems which may have associated serious complications. At this  time, the LAUP procedure has not been proven to cure these disorders.

3. Bleeding. In very rare situations, a need  for blood products or a blood transfusion. You have the right, should you  choose, to have autologous or designated donor directed blood pre-arranged. You  are encouraged to consult with your doctor if you are interested.

4. Nasal regurgitation, a change in voice, or  velopharyngeal insufficiency when liquids may flow into the nasal cavity during  swallowing (rare).

5. Failure to resolve coexisting sinus, tonsil,  or nasal problems.

6. Need for revision, or further and more  aggressive surgery.

7. Prolonged pain, impaired healing, and the  need for hospitalization


Sleep apnea is characterized by loud snroing and distrubed or interruped  sleep patterns. Sleep apnea can have serious consequences including cardiac  problems. Frequently patients will awaken in the morning with a headache. If  they become sleep deprived they may feel sleeppy all day, and may fall asleep  while driving in the car.

Sleep apnea is diagnosed by a sleep study. During a sleep study, the  patient's breathing patterns, heart rhythim and brain waves are monitored.

If it is found that sleep apnea is present, most doctors recommend the use of  CPAP. CPAP is a breathing device worn during sleep to help keep the airway open.  In some situations surgery is recommended. The uvulopalatopharyngoplasty with or  without tonsillectomy are surgical procedurs designed to open the airway. In  rare situations, a tracheostomy is necessary. These are procedures designed to  circumvent this sleep related collapse of these structures.

How Argireline Works to Reduce Wrinkles

Argireline is an interesting and unique peptide that, in many tests, seems to reduce the degree and severity of wrinkles on the face, and is sometimes used as a treatment against wrinkle development. Many people consider Argireline to be a good alternative to Botox. Facial wrinkling is common as people age. Causes are physiological pathways, formation of collagen, elastin polypeptide degradation and other problems that develop in the skin. Sort, synthetic peptides have been found in many studies to decrease the formation of facial wrinkles, and many people believe that this makes them look younger. Argireline as an ingredient is used in cosmetic products including emulsions, gels, sera and others. The dosage recommended of Argireline is five percent or more, depending on many factors including the speed of wrinkle inhibition a person desires. Some of the items used in wrinkle inhibition in the past have had long term health risks. That was one of the reasons for the development of Argireline. Technically speaking Argireline was identified and developed for consumer use through an analysis of skin topography using adult female volunteers. Argireline is thought by many researchers to inhibit neurotransmitter release with a potency much like other products used previously, but without the negative side effects.What exactly is Argireline? Argireline is a hexapeptide which is six naturally occurring amino acids in combination. It contains an active ingredient of acetyl hexapeptide 3 (AH3), known as a deep penetrating and powerful amino peptide. This active ingredient assists in relaxation of the intensity and frequency of contractions of facial muscles. The result of this action is sometimes referred to as a "lifting" feeling. Argireline also seems to smooth skin through detour of the degeneration of collagen and elastin. Many people, which using Argireline in cream form, use it around the yes, between the eyebrows, around the mouth and on the forehead, neck and the rest of the face. Researchers believe the results to be cumulative, and in some clinical studies a reduction in facial lines up t 17% occurred in a 15 day period, with u to 27% occurring in a 30 day period. These studies were performed with a five percent concentration of Argireline. For more information visit: REVITOL

The Diet Solution Program Scam – Review

The Diet Solution Program is a 180-page book written by Isabel De Los Rios. The authoress promises that people who would follow the advice in her book would not only lose weight, but also enjoy beautiful skin, feel energetic, and enjoy a great disposition. Everyone who read the book said that it is wonderfully simple and lucid.
The most important thing about her book is that it explains to you why most diets do not work and how you could ensure that yours will. Isabel painstakingly explodes some of the most popular myths about nutrition and popular foods, which act not only as revelations but life-changing information.
here is an added dimension to 'The Diet Solution Program' which is the assurance that people who suffer from diabetes and other such diseases can lose weight as well. This particular assurance and guide has encouraged people from all over the world to look and work towards obtaining and maintaining their ideal body weight.

This is perhaps the greatest achievement of Isabel De Los Rios as this particular book gives hope, and she goes on to say that it is possible to lose weight even for those who thought that it wasn't possible and were convinced that a life of obesity and its related health issues were their destiny.

The Diet Solution Program proclaims that all you need to maintain a great body weight is to eliminate the wrong type of foods from your diet. It is that simple. Eat healthy, stay healthy and have a great body. Unlike other leading diet programs, this one does not include rigid meal plans or exercise regimes.

Isabel says that regular exercise is enough provided you eat right; and by eating right does not mean that you go eliminating carbohydrates and other 'fun stuff' from your table forever. Rather, she suggests that you can achieve excellent health and your ideal weight by eliminating unhealthy foods.

Be prepared for some jaw-dropping revelations in her book about your favorite and seemingly "healthy" foods. Isabel has based this book on her 15 years plus research on nutrition, exercise and health as well as her own personal experience. She has metamorphosed from an awkwardly overweight teenager (with diabetes in the family medical history) into the drop-dead-gorgeous woman you see today simply by just following the right way of eating.

She believes, preaches and helps people to adopt a healthy diet which will become second nature. Isabel always said that health cannot be imposed through rigid diet modules; it has to feel right and be natural. This is what her book, 'The Diet Solution Program' offers - a completely natural way of losing weight that works like a charm, an ideal way to keep watch that you stay that way plus the empowering belief that no matter what, it is possible to lose weight.

In my opinion this is a book everybody should read whether or not you want to lose weight; whether or not you suffer from diabetes, heart problems or other similar ailments; whether or not you have read other weight related books before. If nothing else, you will find some exceptional life-changing information about your daily food that would benefit you greatly.
