Belly Buster Program ‘Blasts’ The Gut … And Helps You Get Ripped!

Have you ever tried to lose those last few (or more than a few) inches or kilograms of extra weight you’re carrying around your waist? It can be harder than you think unless you have a personal trainer like  “the commando” or a very very strong willpower.

Sly Stilone ages 64 ... zero visceral fat.I used to say “It’s not that important, a few kilos … ” but I know that it is INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT.

A 40% INCREASE in Heart Disease is forecast in the next decade, and one in three (1 : 3) people who suffer a heart attack DO NOT GET A SECOND CHANCE!

This “EXTRA FAT” is termed viseral fat …

Visceral fat,  lies out of reach, deep within the abdominal cavity, where it pads the spaces between our abdominal organs. Visceral fat has been linked to metabolic disturbances and increased risk for cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. In women, it is also associated with breast cancer and the need for gallbladder surgery.  — Harvard Medical School, Feb 2007

Someone, like myself who is in the “healthy, or even very healthy weight range” for their age can have a high and alarming viseral fat level … and the chances are YOUR DOCTOR WILL NOT TELL YOU.

So what can you do?

  1. First thing is FIND OUT WHAT YOUR VISCERAL FAT LEVEL IS – If you are in Australia, Australian Weightloss do FREE full body analysis (you may pay up to $70.00 at your doctor).  It is painless, and takes less than 30 minutes. Check in your country and see what is available. Many Herbalife Independent distributors offer this free service.
  2. Then what you can DO TO REDUCE IT – Remember that the majority of people in the developed world are chronically dehydrated and do not have the correct balance of vitamins and minerals, amino acids, proteins and trace elements in the food they eat each day. In todays modern world we all need to supplement our diets to be healthy.Fit to Walk and Talk can help you put together a ‘balanced nutritional’ plan to start reducing your viseral fat levels. Often this will involve a balance of animal and vegetable proteins, usually more than you currently are eating.
  3. Get started on your Belly Buster Program – Having a coach will make a BIG DIFFERENCE to you achieving your desired results, or if you are confident you can follow an easy step by step plan you could try the “Belly Buster Program” from Australian Weightloss. You will also get support from one of their consultants. (Important: Password = “accelerator”)

If you need any help and support please contact me as I am on the journey myself and started two days ago. I am using the “Belly Buster Program” to achieve results quickly.

Greed, Greed, Greed and More Greed!

I just read an article in the Melbourne Age suggesting that former Prime Minister John Howard had sought US favor to have charges laid against Australian David Hicks in order to improve Howards re-election chances. I immediately said to my wife “Can this be true? W hat would possess someone to do that?”

How naive am I … it’s greed, greed, greed!

It certainly isn’t reserved for politicians either as another article spoke of mass sackings at Qantas, OneSteel and Westpac while there were massive profits declared by BHP Billiton as the mining industry continues it’s sale into the growing Asian market. Is that the same Asian market that is also contributing enormously to local and global pollution? Yes it is and it is driven by greed, greed, greed and more greed.

Buckminster Fuller is considered by many as one of the most important human beings of the twentieth century. Fuller referred to this characteristic as one of “un-evidend selfishness”. This is where a person or a company appears to be doing the ‘right thing’ and being a generous or good person however the reality is they are really only interested in getting the best result for themselves … and “stuff the rest”.

The video clip above shows a small part of John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s “Bed Peace” event in Montreal, Canada in 1969, at the same time as technology (ever accelerating change) reached a point for the first time in our human evolution where we could now provide for everyone on Earth at an unprecedented high standard of living … such that there was now no need to compete. What does it take to create a future that actually works, for everyone?

In fact competition is now detrimental to the ongoing survival and success of humanity.

A recent blog on 10billionbillionaires.org titled “How Far ‘Off-Track’ Are We … ?” looks at whether there are any leaders out there willing to declare the sort of future they are committed to creating.

Or are they just reacting to the situations as they occur and as they worsen around them?

Today Australia’s Traffic Regulations Are Costing 1000’s of Lives!

Did you know that our Australian Road design regulations and safety standards kill around 1600 people and seriously injure another 22,000 every year, and while the road toll was much higher 30 years ago it has plateaued and is costing a fortune in loss of life, medical and hospital costs and associated grief and trauma counseling.

There is nothing wrong with making mistakes … in fact it is one of the best way to learn, but when we keep making the same mistakes, getting the same result and are not making effective corrections then I would ask the question “what is stopping us making changes?”

What is stopping us making the necessary changes?

We live in ‘engineered environments or domains’, whether you are on land, in or on the water or in the sky, there are serious and sometimes lethal outcomes if you do not comply with the design principles of that environment.

I believe a case could now be put for gross negligence if the responsible parties do not engineer for ‘known’ hazards or risks.

We are living in the ‘twenty first century’, decades after we successfully designed a vehicle to send humans out into space and bring them back to earth safely, which we did very successfully.

It is astounding and almost unbelievable that we have not invested a similar interest in saving thousands of ordinary people’s lives. Only idiots or the ignorant would expect that speed cameras could prevent accidents or save people’s lives.

As a past chairperson of the Road Safety subcommittee of the Risk Engineering Branch of the Institution of Engineers Australia it was obvious to me that no one was looking at the road system as a “whole system”.

How To Lose Weight EASILY and Keep It Off!

How To Lose Weight EASILY and Keep It Off.

How can I help you?I’m currently enjoying my 60th year on planet Earth, but have a basal metabolic age of 18yrs, due very much to my low body fat of 15.5%, regular exercise (I walk and do yoga almost every day) and my hydration is pretty good @ 55.5% … but should still be higher.

It is so EASY and enjoyable to be well … plus the benefits of maintaining a healthy weight are enormous!

One of my doctor friends said that the worst term many doctors use when diagnosing a patient is “... for a person your age.” Sure, age will have measurable affects on the way we perform but often doctors compare you to the ‘norm’ for your age, rather than what you could be like if you knew how easy it was to be well.

Now you can put the best fuel in! (click here)

A recent US report states that the average American family spends around $12oo a month on health insurance. Not every one can afford $1200 a month and so 50 million American’s have no health insurance and so limited access to health care. In Australia we have a very similar situation developing. These people who miss out are often the very people who need health care the most. Continue reading

How I Gained 41 Years … And How You Can Too!

How I Gained 41 years … And How You Can Too!

Last night I had a full body scan done. Ever heard of them?

It tells you  just about everything you can think of that is about your body … your height and your weight you usually know but these get ‘plugged in’ to the machine I was standing on. Then I waited a few seconds while a tiny electric current passes around my body, I just love TECHNOLOGY and how easily and quickly it does it’s job.

Then I’m told to “step off the machine” and the operator starts recording MY RESULTS, including my METABOLIC AGE, or how old my body appears to be.

Aging and health care are certainly two of the BIGGEST concerns to individuals and governments alike.

How great will you feelIndividuals generally want to stay feeling as young as they can, for as long as they can and governments are having to find more and more money for aged care and hospitals. Part of the problem is that the majority of people simply don’t know how to stay healthy and vital.

If they actually knew HOW SIMPLY IT ACTUALLY IS they would scream!

One of the worst things that can happen as we age is to contract a debilitating disease or to suffer a serious injury, especially if you live in a country such as Australia or the United States with expensive health care. Many people just cannot afford to get sick in these countries, but a rapidly increasing number of people are getting sick.

At a recent medical seminar I attended one doctor described how scientists had now linked 120 preventable diseases to being overweight or obese … and they are finding more and more. Continue reading

Can You Cure Mental Disease With Sugar?

Can You Cure Mental Disease With Sugar?

I think you know the obvious answer … NO you can’t. So when our diets are heavily laden with sugar, especially refined sugar and we have a rapid increase in many preventable diseases (including depression) I feel we would get much better “bang for our investment buck” by studying the causes rather than focusing on the symptoms.

A little over ten years ago I ran into the former Victorian Premier Mr Jeff Kennett at a petrol station. He had just paid his account and picked up a ‘slab’ (slang for two dozen cans) of Diet Coke, put it onto his shoulder and walked towards his car.

He turned around and our eyes met … so I walked towards him and introduced myself as a health and lifestyle coach. I asked Mr Kennett if he had purchased the Diet Coke for him, and if so was he hoping it would help control his weight.

He replied “Yes and yes.”

I mentioned that there are medical reports (freely available) disclosing health concerns about the drink and that those reports evidently showed that when the participants of the study stopped drinking the Diet Coke they actually lost weight. Mr Kennett then said “Would I be better off drinking the normal Coke?”

Mmmm … I said that water was a much better choice and he put the slab of diet cola in the boot of his car and we said good bye.

I remember this event so clearly because shortly after our chance meeting Mr Kennett announced he had founded an organisation to help manage depression … called Beyond Blue. Like many of us Mr Kennett was also dealing with relationship challenges, and at one point I believe a marital separation, something few people have been given the tools to deal powerfully with. Without adequate tools often eating, drinking or something worse comes into play.

NOW MY QUESTION WAS … “Can You Cure Mental Disease With Sugar?” Continue reading

Beware of ANZ and High Interest Rate Loans!

Beware of ANZ and High Interest Rate Loans!

It is not that long ago that were encouraged to SAVE … save for what we wanted.

That all changed and ANZ bank as one of the big 4 banks is a leader in encouraging debt. But so do CBC, AMEX, NAB, Virgin Credit, Westpac and many others. To understand the banking industry is something few busy people ever do. Even on the ANZ Home loans website they say “Comparing banking products can be confusing and time consuming.”

But isn’t this just great how the ANZ Homeloans page is simply covered in “zeros”, like:

  • “$0 monthly account service fee …”  and
  • “$0 annual credit card account fee …”

Wouldn’t be any ‘trickery’ there would there? Surely not, not the ANZ bank now.

Zero’s are easy to understand … well, they used to be.

So even though we don’t understand banking products well … they ‘consume’ our lives.

Home loans, car loans, personal loans, credit cards and on and on … each with different interest rates, different terms and conditions and policies. Come on, be honest here.

Who actually reads all of the fine print? Does anyone?

You would assume the ANZ and other banks do, or is it only their solicitors who understand them? 

One of the JP Morgan family said that if you want to make money and become rich you must make things complex and complicated.

Banks like ANZ have made an art form out of confusion and evidently they are all in bed with each other, as we saw at the height of the recent GFC (no that’s not the Geelong Football Club … it stands for Global Financial Crisis).  Do you remember that only one bank was sacrificed … and it came as a shock to the others. They thought they were all safe … safety in numbers I suppose.

About five years ago I had taken out an ANZ loan … it was very easy to apply for, no hoops to go through, or ladders to climb. At the time I was heavily involved in creating a new movement called Your Healthy Planet.com, all about us working together for the benefit of everyone.

Is that the same philosophy of the banks … like ANZ?  Don’t think so!

Banks play “win as much as we can … and screw you.”

Your Healthy Planet.com Means “More For More (people)”!

“More for More”that’s an unusual term and in fact I think I may have  just created it because checking in Google nothing comes up that fits what Your Healthy Planet.com means with more for more.

In fact how can you have “more for more (people)” … in a world that we are told has  ‘finite resources’, you simple can’t?

Unless you are also “doing more with less”, and there are certainly good examples of this all around the world. Look at the brief video below and you will see examples of artificial limbs (can cost $20,000 each) now being produced for as little as $28 each … yes, just $28 each. See the family motor car produced for just $2,000 and enough room for tall men and women to travel in comfort, or the laptop computer for $100.

How is all this possible?

Some four or five decades ago we entered a new era … a comprehensive design revolution has begun, producing “more with less”, and less every day. Because 99% or more of these changes are invisible (the technology cannot be readily seen) the vast majority of people are not aware that the change is accelerating exponentially.

Combine this accelerating change of ‘invisible’ technology with the massive expansion of the networking industry (especially via the internet) and we have an unstoppable almost exploding expansion of wealth and access to this wealth.

You may not understand this yet, and that is OK … the important thing is to allow the thought that we can and will all “make it successfully” to wash around in your conscious and unconscious thoughts.

Should Tony Abbott Go With A “Health Bonus”?

Or let labor grab it?

Australian-weightloss article proposes a NEW “Health Bonus” could be on the way. Earlier comments from Prime Minister Rudd certainly stresses the concern over skyrocketing health costs, or as another article put it a “tidal wave of preventable diseases”.

The baby bonus met with better than expected results …

It is well proven that  “reward systems” do achieve much better results and are certainly more cost effective than the old conventional “penal systems” which you see all around the world continuing to extract more and more tax payers hard earned money.

They say that a LEADER is not necessarily the one out the front wielding the machete and cutting his way through the jungle, but rather the one who climbs the tallest tree and is willing to yell “we are in the wrong jungle”.

Australia has also recently been host to Internationally renowned Professor Susan Greenfield, a neuro-scientist and author. Much of her work is aimed at predicting the onset of debilitating (and often preventable) brain disease such as dementia and Alzheimers.  In her Press Club address she quoted a figure of $67 billion in potential savings over forty years if we can delay the effect of these brain diseases on Australian for say five years.

She and her team are working on a predictive type of ‘marker’ that could tell your doctor you are likely to suffer a debilitating disease like Parkinson’s, dementia or Alzheimers and put you on a new medication (not yet discovered) which will delay the onset of the disease.

My concern is very much that “we get what we FOCUS our attention on … ” and to be investing large sums of research dollars on this type of research and medication is at best doubtful.

Great Article on Australian-Weightloss. Is Sugar Poisoning You?

Is Sugar Poisoning You?

Everyone knows someone with Type 2 diabetes … but I will bet you they don’t know the effects, like kidney failure, blindness and amputation of your limbs.

Why do I say that? Because we keep eating the same foods and consuming the drinks that are laden with sugar, like eight to ten teaspoons of sugar in one can. It is so well disguised … and apparently it’s addictive.

And it can be a challenge, because often the foods can look and sound healthy, “muesli bars”, “flavored yogurt”, “fruit juices” … WOW!

How much sugar do you consume each day?

Is it ten teaspoons (one can of soda or two glasses of fruit juice) or more?

Australian Weightloss has a great article with reference to a NEW book by Australian author and solicitor David Gillespie.

If you don’t read it for yourself, at least read it for your children …

Type 2 diabetes is Australia’s fastest growing chronic disease!
