Well, we're halfway done! Today we'll discuss component 4 of the Perfect Weight America program:
Supplement For Your Perfect Weight
Personally, I believe supplements are extremely necessary in our nutrient- starved world, even if you are eating, like our family, 100% organic food. Food is simply not what it's supposed to be, or used to be, even when it is organic. See my post about what supplements I take, and why, for more info.
And even supplements are not all created equally.
Here's what Jordan Rubin has to say about supplements in Perfect Weight America, page 111:
"Have you checked the label of your multivitamin lately? If you see ingredients such as sucrose, cornstarch, thiamine mononitrate, pyridoxine hydrochloride, or sodium metasilicate listed, your multivitamin is produced from isolated and synthetic materials.
When you look on the packaging and see the letters dl in front of an ingredient- like 'dl-alpha tocopheryl,' for example- your multivitamin is using a synthetic version of vitamin E. Again, not all vitamin E is created equal.
Synthetic or isolated multivitamins are never going to be as good or potent as the ones produced from natural sources; studies show that synthetically made vitamins are 50 percent less biologically active than vitamins made from natural sources.
So when you introduce nutritional supplements produced from whole foods and other natural sources into your body, you'll double the nutrients available to the body."
In Perfect Weight America, Jordan Rubin recommends taking three awesome Garden of Life supplements as part of the program:
The first is this awesome multivitamin from Garden of Life. I took this multivitamin from the time I started the Maker's Diet 5 years ago until they came out with their raw prenatal. Check out the description on their website for more info!
Secondly, he recommends taking a truly awesome fat-burning product, the revolutionary FucoThin. I mentioned this a couple weeks ago, and one lucky reader got a free bottle in our giveaway! Check out www.fucothin.com to find out how this awesome supplement can help you reach your weight loss goals in 2011.
And last, but certainly not least, the Vitamin -D and Omega-3 rich cod liver oil. (Don't worry, it comes in capsules too, if drinking it straight is not your style.)
Good for your heart, brain, eyes, immune system, and just about everything else, cod liver oil is a must to add to your supplement regiment! Check out Garden of Life's site for more info on this awesome product! (Even my three year old takes a spoonful every night!)
Well, next week we'll be on part 5 of the Perfect Weight America program, showing you how to Cleanse for your Perfect Weight!
