    Isagenix Review

    "When dealing with multi-level marketing platforms, it can be hard to get a straight answer"

    Isagenix Review

    What Is Isagenix

    Isagenix was founded in April of 2002, and is a multi-level marketing business that aims to sign individuals up to be brand ambassadors. Based out of Chandler, AZ, they sell nutritional products such as protein shakes, weight loss supplements, diet snacks, and meals. When calling into their support line, I was routed through three different systems to simply talk to one person about some general questions. This was a long process to simply talk to someone real, so I would try to get your questions answered in one shot versus having to call in multiple times. When they try to sell customers on becoming millionaires by selling their product, I already have a gut feeling that this is too good to be true. To see the Isagenix program reviewed by the Better Business Bureau. When dealing with multi-level marketing platforms, it can be hard to get a straight answer because it’s difficult to distinguish between who was a rep trying to make their way up the pyramid, and who was a genuine customer with feedback. The Isagenix

    Conclusion

    You can purchase Isagenix on multiple different sites such as Amazon, the Isagenix site, and Ebay. I believe this company is just another multi-level marketing company that offers nutritional supplements with little to no benefits for your overall health. I would call them a multi-level marketing scam myself, because of the inaccurate reviews on their website versus the rest of the internet.

    Medifast Review

    "Although the prepackaged meals can be a real convenience, they can also make social outings difficult"

    Medifast Review

    How Does the Medifast Program Work?

    Medifast was established in 1980 by Dr. William Vitale, and is essentially a meal replacement and meal delivery service for helping people lose weight. The Medifast plan menu consists of protein shakes, soups, and bars. There are over 70 meals you can choose from, and the program prides itself on its cu

    Do Dieters Lose Weight With Medifast?

    There has been mixed reviews on whether or not this program helps people lose weight for the long term. Because the caloric restrictions can go as low as 800 calories per day, it would be hard not to lose weight, no matter what program you’re using. A lot rides on your liking to the foods that are prepared for you, and whether or not you enjoy the taste. The cost is also a huge factor in people's weight loss success and or failure, as it is not a cheap program overall to follow long term. We found some outside reviews which were very helpful to read:

    DASH Diet Review

    The DASH Diet was originally created to help a person lower their blood pressure and that was it, but it soon morphed ito an actual diet program. According to the DASH Diet anyone can accomplish lower blood pressure and even lower weight by simply eating all the foods that are good for them, and it can happen in under 14 days.* This includes foods rich in potassium, calcium, protein and fiber. The DASH diet also says to lay off the sweets and cut salt usage way down. They say because the eating program is heavy in fruits, vegetables, and protein it will most definitely help with weight loss when followed. There are regular, vegetarian, vegan, and kosher options available when looking into this diet program.

    How The DASH Diet Works

    The DASH Diet was developed with the help of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute. There are two free guides that can be read on how to institute the DASH Diet, one that is short and one that is long.
    Basically, both tell you the same thing which is to eat all the things you were taught were good for you when you were growing up. This includes fruits, vegetables and lean meats. Conversely, you should also stay away from foods that you might like, but ones that will be bad for you. This will include sugary and fatty foods as well as excessive amounts of red meat. Salt is also considered a no-no.

    Do Dieters Lose Weight On The DASH Diet?

    The DASH Diet has proven effective for weight loss when followed properly. However, this is not always as easy as it sounds. Dieters who design a meal plan with a calorie deficit will obviously have more success with weight loss, but the diet is geared more at attacking high blood pressure and weight loss is really a secondary goal of the diet. Therefore, any weight loss that is enjoyed will likely not be as dramatic as many dieters might hope for.

    Does The DASH Diet Conform To Accepted Dietary Guidelines?

    Using the 2017 Dietary Guidelines for Americans as a benchmark, the DASH Diet easily conforms in the areas of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. Even salt can be kept at acceptable levels when the DASH Diet is followed properly.
    Other “nutrients of concern” such as fiber, potassium, calcium, Vitamin B-12 and Vitamin D are also usually right on. Because the diet was designed for health more than for weight loss it is much more conforming in these areas as opposed to other “fad” diets on the market today.

    Is the DASH Diet Easy to Follow?

    How Much Does The DASH Diet Cost?

    The DASH Diet can be costly due to what you will eat while on the diet. Because you will have to stick to a specific list of foods that are acceptable and those foods are all on the more natural and fresh side, you can expect to pay for it. Fresh and wholesome foods will always cost you more than processed and frozen foods and if you like brand names you will pay more in that area as well. On top of the actual food costs there are books to read on how to actually follow the diet, and you can find them on Amazon for around $15.00.

    Does the DASH Diet Allow for Restrictions and Preferences?

    Yes. This includes the needs of those who want to go gluten-free, low to no salt, Kosher, Halal, vegan or vegetarian. The DASH Diet is easily formed into almost anything you need it to be and can easily meet your personal dietary needs. For that reason, this program can be easily molded into your eating habits already.

    What is the Role of Exercise with the DASH Diet?

    The DASH Diet highly encourages participants to exercise. However, this is again for health purposes and not so much as an added way to lose weight. The DASH Diet recommends those who are not used to physical activity to start out with light activity and then build from there. This can include walking, gardening, or even light aerobic workouts.
    The bottom line is that they want everyone to stay active and stay moving. The DASH Diet is a big proponent on setting goals and then sticking to those goals and the area of exercise is no different.

    Weight Watchers Review

    Weight Watchers was named the 2017 Best Weight-Loss Diet by U.S. News & World Report. The 7th annual list includes nine sets of Best Diets rankings; Weight Watchers was first, or tied for first place, in almost half the categories and was a runner-up in the rest. [1]
    And while Weight Watchers did not make the cut as the “Best Overall Diet”—the DASH diet took that prize—it’s arguably the world’s most popular diet. Anyone who has ever been on a diet to lose weight, and been successful even though it’s often not sustained, has been on Weight Watchers.you follow the plan correctly. Some users lose a pound a week, some three. It depends on the level of effort and your body. Regardless, if you follow the plan, you’ll lose weight. That’s what Weight Watchers promises. Does it deliver?

    The Weight Watchers Plan

    The current program is pretty simple: “Every food gets a value. Smart Points are based on calories, saturated fat, sugar, and protein. Just follow your budget [of points] and start seeing results.” [3]
    There’s no forbidden foods. That said, the junk will quickly suck up points, so it’s better to eat good foods and manage points wisely. That’s the ‘diet’ part.
    Next? Get moving. “Every move counts. Earn FitPoints for walking, cleaning, gardening—you name it. Sync your fitness device with your account and start earning!” [3]
    Perhaps the most important part of Weight Watchers is the “I got this” mindset: “Get your head in the game with science-based techniques that go beyond food and fitness.” [3]

    The Bottom Line: Is Weight Watchers Worth a Try?

    Yes. As long as you keep an eye on the billing (and report them to the Better Business Bureau if you run into problems), the program itself works. If you haven’t done Weight Watchers, try it. If you follow the diet religiously—and it is very doable—you absolutely will lose weight, usually in the neighborhood of a pound or two a week. The tricky part is keeping the weight off once you’ve met your goal. But hopefully, the habits learned while on Weight Watchers will stick. With Weight Watchers, you can’t lose. I mean, you can—you can lose.

    5 Tips to Help Alleviate Sciatic Pain

    The term “Sciatica” is not a medical condition, but rather a symptom of underlying degenerative disc disease, or spinal stenosis.

    The term “Sciatica” is not a medical condition, but rather a symptom of underlying degenerative disc disease, or spinal stenosis. Ji states from the Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine Journal that “90% of cases, sciatica is caused by a herniated disc with nerve-root compression.” (Ji, n.d.).The pain one can feel can range from mild to severe, with radiation of pain along the distribution of sciatic nerve in the leg.
