Pamphlets: Complete Uses VIII

Melaleuca for Weight Loss
Diet is not a bad word.   A diet is simply a pattern of food types eaten regularly.  A panda has a diet of bamboo, a koala of eucalyptus, a tiger of meat.  Humans are naturally omnivores. Our diet consists of plants and animals (most vegetarians/vegans are surprised to find that most processed foods contain animal byproducts such as candy, pastries, desserts, and flavored drinks).  An American diet is different than that of an Indonesian diet, different than a Russian diet, still different than a Tibetan diet.  Ethno-cultural, environmental, and economical differences in food preferences are just a few examples of why diets vary drastically around the world.  Human diet, nonetheless, is still an omnivoric one. The American diet, however, is often comprised of non-nutritive, preservative laced, yet caloric dense foods. Portion sizes are tripled from what they were only 50 years ago and synthetic ingredients often are used as fillers or preservatives in mainstream foods. By consuming real foods and beverages, an individual can feel the difference within days.
First, a person’s metabolism is slowest after they first wake up.  It doesn’t matter if they wake up at 4am, 4pm, or anywhere in between, the metabolism naturally slows during sleep.  Both the hormones and the metabolism activate about 15 to 20 minutes after awakening.  It is alright to awaken slowly, and in many medicinal traditions, it is important to wake up slowly.  The height of the metabolism should be around mid-day, increasing in the summer months and waning in the winter months.  The metabolism starts to slow down again during the evening time; this is why eating large, late-night dinners can help pack on the pounds.   Metabolism also slows down with age, with a rapid decline in the early 30’s and again in the 50’s.  Purposely reducing calories can make this process worse, mucking up hormone levels and wreaking havoc on the metabolic process. 
Hormones are the most important component to fat loss.  Hormones tell the body what to do, how to do it, and when to do it.  There are over two and a half dozen hormones involved in the accepting and processing of energy.  Each hormone has a specific function and works most efficiently when the body is properly nourished and rested.  This is why it is paramount that the body receives 7 – 9 hours of sleep (or 3 – 4 uninterrupted REM cycles) per twenty-four hour period.  It is also very important to take a good multivitamin, which absorbs completely and does not oxidize during its breakdown; and a similarly dependable calcium supplement should be taken as well.  Another important supplement to always take is Omega-3 fatty acids with a minimum of 70% derived from DHA.  Omega-3 fatty acids aid in heart and brain health, lower inflammation, and stabilize metabolism.
It is very important to find time each day to both stretch and exercise.  Altogether, strength training and cardio are essential to increasing your metabolism.  Exercising could be done all at once, in intervals, or intermittently throughout the day.  Little movements add up in the long run.  Keep moving throughout the day and stretch in the evenings before bed.   Simply by doing establishing a routine, you should see dramatic results in less than a week.
Grab a buddy. Studies show that workout buddies are more inclined to stay motivated and lose weight together than those individuals who are forging ahead alone. Keeping track of each other’s’ goals and encouraging one another to keep going can be enough motivation to inspire both individuals in the toughest of times. Find a workout partner who is ready to pump you up without putting you down.
Upon rising out of bed, drink a glass of slightly cooler-than-room-temperature water. It is best to exercise right after rising out of bed. Since your stomach is empty, the body uses more fat stores as energy. Grab an Access Bar and go get ‘em tiger! Treat yourself with a ProFlex20 shake post workout. Remember to replace electrolytes throughout the day with Sustain Sport.
Before breakfast, drink a cup of coffee or warm tea to increase your metabolism. Add cinnamon or 1 scoop Attain GC Control to stabilize your blood sugar and add flavor to your coffee.  Try G’Day Melaleuca Herbal Tea throughout the day.   
  • For breakfast, have your fill of complex carbohydrates, fruit, and protein.  Simply Fit Oatmeal, 2 eggs, apple and peanut butter, would be a perfect breakfast.  But whole grain pancakes or waffles, bacon, ham, sausage, omelets, and other substitutes can be made.   Limit biscuits and other simple-carbohydrate bombs, these items prohibit your body from using its fat stores; yet worse, add to your fat stores. On the go meals can include a smoothie (see smoothies), FiberWise Bar, a Simply Fit Chewey Snack Bar, or Simply Fit Crackers with cheese and fruit.  
  • For a snack, drink a glass of Attain GC Control and consume one FiberWise bar, or add 1 scoop of FiberWise powder to Vanilla Attain GC Control. If you are still feeling a bit of the munchies, have one Unforgettables Dark Chocolate bar, eat a piece of fruit, some nuts, or an Attain Bar.


  • Lunch should follow just an hour and a half or so after snack.  Adjust your schedule to fit lunch in as eating often will keep your metabolism rate high.  Skipping lunch altogether can devastate your metabolism again.   An open-faced sandwich on whole grain bread stacked high with vegetables is a great choice.  Cobb salad with vinaigrette dressing or salsa is another option.  Fajitas, wraps, and whole grain, thin crust pizza can also fit the bill if vegetables are the main ingredient.  It is very hard to follow this regimen when eating at fast food joints because their food is about 70% carbohydrates, 20% animal parts (parts of what is left to be determined), and 10% preservatives.  But if you are stuck in a fast food joint and have to order something, be sure to get a salad or a bun-less grilled chicken sandwich with extra vegetables.  Be creative. Add Simply Fit Crackers instead of French-fries or chips, replace a soft drink with SplashH2O.
  • Make yourself an after-lunch cold Attain GC Control shake to sip throughout the afternoon.
  • Eating a snack in-between lunch and dinner is optional but it should be almost entirely fiber and protein.  Protein shake, piece of chicken, or hard-boiled eggs are some good examples. Add 1 Cup of Simply Fit Microwave popcorn or a FiberWise bar.  
  • Dinner should come early.  In fact, it should be completely eaten before dusk.  The body naturally slows down its metabolism in the evening so eating early reduces fat storage.  This meal should be the lightest meal of the day. Light spices make for a pleasant taste and can mix things up.  Meals such as homemade soup or meatloaf with a light salad on the side can be a perfect ending to the day. Drink a glass of FiberWise one half hour before eating.
You may experience an increase in your metabolism.  This is good but with it comes increased hunger.  If you find yourself in need of a snack late at night, do not succumb to junk food.  Save the craving for morning snack.  Instead, drink an Attain Shake or have a cup of hot tea and eat a hard-boiled egg.  The protein will satisfy you until morning. 
You should notice fat loss in a couple of days.  Sugar cravings will persist for at least a week, but should subside in 10-15 days.  Sweets will become too sweet after this point and you will notice that less of it is needed to satisfy your cravings.  This is one of the breaking points you will need to motivate you through your fat loss success.  One of the biggest motivators, however, will be buying a new outfit every other month.  And you should spoil yourself because you deserve it.
