YOU ON A DIET
The Secret Story of What's In Your Belly and How to Get Rid of What You Do Not Want
In the simplest form, we all know the formula for gaining weight. Daily buckets of ranch dip, plus photo-album-sized hunks of cheesecake, plus a life of couch dwelling equals a very unfortunate conclusion: too-frequent button poppings. But many of us really don't know how fat works and how it works against us. This talk will concentrate on that.
To change your body, you need to know your body. Technically, when you ingest fat, it's absorbed via your intestines. But the key organ in the entire digestive, fat-storing process is an organ called the omentum, a fatty tissue that makes your belly stick out when it grows too large. Think of the omentum fat as the obnoxious 18-wheeler on a crowded highway-elbowing out the stomach, pushing away other organs, and claiming up all the space for itself.
This talk will center on how omentum fat works, how it injures the body, and what you can do to successfully get rid of it. When this organ is out of control it causes frequent, abnormal hunger; arterial aging; loss of energy, sexual impotence; inflammation that leads to stroke and heart attacks, and other things we will discuss.
You Can Make Immediate Changes What's most interesting and encouraging is that as soon as you make physiological changes to your omentum, your body starts seeing the effects. That is, once your body senses it's losing that fat, then your body's blood-related numbers (cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar) start traveling in the healthy direction. This happens within days before you even notice any kind of physical sign of weight loss (especially when you consider that the size of your omentum is impossible to measure without a CT scan). There are many important ways to start shedding this unhealthy fat, and that's how the talk will end.
These programs are available as a half day, full day, or as a keynote speech. Weekend retreats and longer programs are also offered
