Martha's Vibrant LifeStyle Plan - Winning at Weight Loss

Today, 66 percent of adults in the United States are considered overweight or obese. Obesity puts people at increased risk for chronic diseases such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, and some forms of cancer. Health Risks
Obesity is more than a cosmetic problem. Many serious medical conditions have been linked to obesity, including type 2 diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, and stroke. Obesity is also linked to higher rates of certain types of cancer. Men who are considered obese are more likely than nonobese men to develop cancer of the colon, rectum, or prostate. Women who are considered obese are more likely than nonobese women to develop cancer of the gallbladder, uterus, cervix, or ovaries. Esophageal cancer has also been associated with obesity.

Other Diseases and Health Risks Related to Obesity
  • Gallbladder disease and gallstones.
  • Fatty liver disease (also called nonalcoholic steatohepatitis or NASH).
  • Gastroesophageal reflux, or what is sometimes called GERD. This problem occurs when the lower esophageal sphincter does not close properly and stomach contents leak back—or reflux—into the esophagus.
  • Osteoarthritis, a disease in which the joints deteriorate. This is possibly the result of excess weight on the joints.
  • Gout, another disease affecting the joints.
  • Pulmonary (breathing) problems, including sleep apnea, which causes a person to stop breathing for a short time during sleep.
  • Reproductive problems in women, including menstrual irregularities and infertility.

Health care professionals generally agree that people who have a BMI of 30 or greater can improve their health through weight loss. Fortunately, a weight loss of 5 to 10 percent of your initial body weight can do much to improve health by lowering blood pressure and other risk factors for obesity-related diseases. In addition, research shows that a 5- to 7-percent weight loss brought about by moderate diet and exercise can delay or possibly prevent type 2 diabetes in people at high risk for the disease.

So What is the Answer?

Cellular Nutrition

Holistic Family Nurse Practitioner, Martha Bray, has spent years searching for the best protocols that provides you with solutions. As part of that search, Martha has incorporated the Ideal Protein Cellular Nutrition Plan into her Vibrant LifeStyle Program.
It is a 4-stage retraining eating plan that helps stabilize the pancreas and blood sugar levels while burning fat and maintaining muscle and other lean tissue. This 4-stage plan is for long-term health promotion and weight control, not a “diet” that leaves participants with the “Now what?” question after weight has been lost.

Syndrome X

The plan targets prevention and solutions for Syndrome X, also called the “metabolic syndrome.” To qualify as part of this epidemic that is steamrolling North America, adults or children need only suffer from 2 of the 4 components of the metabolic syndrome:

1) Obesity
2) Blood sugar issues (diabetes)
3) Cholesterol problems
4) High blood pressure

Developed for Athletes

The plan was originally developed to secure the muscle mass of high-performance athletes and regulate their insulin levels.
Martha's Vibrant LifeStyle Plan is focused on the pancreas, insulin production, and stabilizing and maintaining weight loss long-term. Ideal’s engine is an alkalized and mineralized program made of 4 distinctive nutritional supplements

What to Expect

Based on over 23 years of experience and 5 million people in Europe, Canada, and now a large group of people in the United States, the program enables the following:
• Quick weight loss without sacrificing muscle mass
Gaining an understanding of how food affects and is utilized by the body, including what causes fat storage
Utilization of fat for energy usually by day 4—fat   (including cellulite) that sequesters chemical toxins
Improved energy and appetite control, reduced   cravings—usually on day 4 or 5
Improved blood sugar and cholesterol levels,   reduced blood pressure

Martha Bray's Vibrant LifeStyle Plan allows you to lose weight with minimal effort compared to most other diets that require buying all sorts of different foods and ingredients and following complicated recipes. With the convenience of Ideal Protein instant packets, you have the option of keeping it very simple… or you may get creative if you like.
Martha's Vibrant LifeStyle Plan gives you the tools and education to truly "Win At Weight Loss"!
