diabetic results of alkalizing body

In our last post written by Dr. Jeff Ring, we discussed how diabetics can potentially reverse the effects of diabetes by alkalizing their bodies.

In this post, we’ve put together a list of diabetics who didn’t just accept their disease.

Instead, they punched their diabetes in the face!

We pulled these testimonials from all over the web.

… some accomplished their goals with diet, and some with supplements.

We don’t care how you do it – Just read these testimonials and use them as fuel to get busy alkalizing your bodies… and if you need help along the way, grab our 30 Day Phit Kit to get you started.

Where Our Diabetic Knockout Stories Were Found

The majority of our testimonials came from two sources.

1. The Empowered by Yoli – We’ve talked about *Yoli on Living Phit several times as they offer products that help alkalize the body.  Empowered by Yoli is a Facebook Group where Yoli customers and distributors hang out to discuss all things Yoli.

Here’s their group’s feature image:

empowered_by_Yoli

I love visiting the group because a lot of people share their personal testimonials about how taking Yoli has helped them.

One of the diseases that people talk most about is diabetes.  While Yoli products aren’t meant to treat, cure or prevent any disease, they clearly help people to lose weight, detoxify and alkalize their bodies, and achieve optimal health.

… Therefore, it should come as no surprise that many diabetics get terrific results on Yoli.

If you’re not familiar with the group, feel free to join and post a question or search for testimonials.  It’s a closed group, but anyone can join.

They made it easy to search for a topic by using the search box on the top right:

search_for_diabetic_conditions

None of the testimonials below were requested from the group members.  They were simply excited to share their results and I later found their testimonials using the search feature and asked for their permission to be featured here.

 

pH_miracle_for_diabetes_book2. Testimonials for “The pH Miracle for Diabetes” by Dr. Robert Young and Shelley Young

This book contains a roadmap for diabetics to alkalize their bodies by eating an alkaline diet.

In this case, we scoured through the public reviews on Amazon about the book and have reproduced them for you below.

Around the Web –  Lastly, we found more Yoli testimonials around the web, such those shared by Dr. Mike Okouchi.  “Dr. Mike” has posted multiple Yoli testimonials on his websites and given us permission to reshare them here.

45 Diabetics Who KO’d Their Disease

This first set is from some members of the Empowered by Yoli group:

My father WAS a type two diabetic. Yoli and positive dietary changes successfully helped him lower his sugars and all down enough to get off all medications and be considered no longer diabetic!

Alex Vile

 

I’m on my third month of my low carb diet and Yoli.  Quit taking metformin after the 1st month, just went to the doctor and my A1C in Feb was 6.8.  Had it retaken on Aug 21 and my A1C is 5.9 no meds and just following the low carb, low acidity diet, along with Yoli supplements.  On the plus side I have also lost 15lbs. My Dr. was very please and I feel WONDERFUL.

Peggy Sue Sproston

 

I am diabetic. When I started with healthy food choices and Yoli my AIC was 8.2.  I was on Glipizide and Victoza shots. I was monitoring my sugars daily for the first week and they were really low so I stopped both for a week to see if they changed and guess what? They stayed between 80-95. I have not had any diabetic meds since May and I feel sooo much better without them. Hope this helps!  Eat healthy and Yoli on my friends.  Oh and my A1c was 6.9 too last month.

Chris Boes Gresham

 

It helped with my mom’s A1-C- it was 7.5 and is now down to 6.4.

Michelle Krom

This one comes from one of Dr. Mike Okouchi’s patients:

My dad is completely off his meds and considered non diabetic now because of positive dietary choices and Yoli.

Samantha Jo

 

My morning blood sugars had been running in the low 200’s. This morning it was 104. Yep, the changes in how a person treats food combined with a couple of the products can truly make a difference.

Kevin Carter

 

My A1c was 11 was on januvia and metformin……..off everything now!

Debbie Owens Rodgriguez

 

I am a diabetic and am on my second month soon to be my third. Have not given myself Insulin shot since week two. I have had sugar lows so I monitor levels more than before. A healthy lifestyle and Yoli has made me understand my health more than before. I eat protein to keep sugar levels much better and healthier now and feel so much better. Next month will be true test, I get my AC1 blood work from my Doc.I feel fantastic!

I am no longer on 2000 mg of metformin a day and my A1c came down to 5.6 without any diabetes medication.

Monica Dumitrescu

 

My blood sugar has been better than ever since I started my alkaline diet and Yoli three weeks ago—all within normal range! Although my last A1C was 6.3, I can’t wait to see how things turn out when I see my doctor again in September. I hope he decreases some of my meds too.

Angela Lindahl

 

I was diagnosed as pre-diabetic (type 2) a little over a year ago. A1C was 7.2. I was put on one Metformin/day and promised the doctor I would lose 15 pounds by the time I came back in 3 months for my next A1C. I didn’t lose those 15 pounds and was embarrassed and ashamed, so didn’t go back for the test. Yes, I know that’s not very smart. I decided to give the alkaline diet a try and while I was waiting for my first T-Kit to arrive I tested my fasting blood sugar every morning. It was always over 130. Three days after starting the alkaline diet and Yoli my blood tested 151. I freaked and texted my niece (who is also my sponsor). She sent my text to Dr. Cross, who responded and told me to be patient as my body was just trying to adjust things. Three days later my blood tested 106!! That was the lowest it had ever been since I started testing. It’s stayed between there and 125 consistently. April of 2013 I had a blood screening done with our health program at work. My results came back with a big, black H (for HIGH) next to glucose and cholesterol. My results in April of this year had NO big, black Hs next to anything — everything had come down — glucose, cholesterol, triglycerides. I finally made an appointment for an A1C. It was 6.2. I’m still on the Metformin and am looking very much forward to my next appointment in August. I’ve lost almost 25 pounds so far. In August I fully expect my weight loss number to be higher and my A1C number to be lower. Yoli really is a life saver.

Lane Muckey

 

Just wanted to share happy with a new healthy lifestyle and yoli. Hubby has had type 2 diabetes for years. We take pure and alkalete daily for just 2-3 months now. May not follow exact plan of other things to a tee but his ac1 blood test came back for him and number used to be realy high and was down to single digits. For him its a big deal. All my cholesterol and other numbers are great. We are super happy and plan to continue .

Karen Gage

 

Well this was my post back in April on my 5 year old niece. Now here’s a current update…..she is doing GREAT my sister has dropped her insulin from 7 units to 5 units and she is finally getting to just be a kid & not feeling so yucky all the time. I could NEVER thank a low carb diet and Yoli enough for what it’s done for my niece!!!!

Mindy Shawn

 

I had been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, a little over 2 years ago-all of a sudden it showed up. I was higher than what I am going to report here, but my 3 month A1c went from 6.4 to 6.2. my blood glucose went from 127 to 120. I still have a ways to go, but I know with the Yoli transformation and exercises I do, I will get better. My goal is to get off as much prescription medicine as I can.

Sandy Shekleton

 

Robert Orca had never been below triple digits until his 8th day of taking Yoli.

Robert Orca had never been below triple digits until his 8th day of taking Yoli.

I am a diabetic and have been on my new alkaline diet and yoli for 11 months and bloodsugar levels are all in normal levels I have more energy and feel so much better.  My a 1c went from 12 to 5.5 in 6 months my fbs is steadyround 89 to 100 reduced my lantus from 50 units to 12 units and Humalog before meals from 14 units to 2 units feel great have lost 64 lbs in 10 months

Sharon Emerick

 

I will be starting my 7th month of healthy food choices and YOLI soon. Just can’t say enough good about it. I have diabetes 2, arthritis, celiac, copd, and gout real bad when I started. I was doing 3 shots 8 units each of Humalog 3x a day, plus Lantus 50 units morning and night. After one week on YOLI I was off Humalog totally and was cutting back on the Lantus. My sugar readings were so low some days I didn’t need any. Now my doctor has me doing 20 units once a day and my sugars are not ever over 112. I am grateful for the the high alkaline diet and YOLI and I expect to be off insulin by the year end. Now I could hardly get out of bed each morning for pain but by the second week my pain was gone and I had more energy than I had in years. Off two inhalers also, doctor said it didn’t make enough difference to continue. I am able to walk and do things that wore me out before. Last visit to arthritis doctor he said keep doing what ever it is working. I feel great and the mental fog I had is also gone. The best part is I’ve lost 42lbs. as of today, and oh poor me I have to get smaller clothes. I love my new lifestyle and what it has done for me. I haven’t had gout since December. Last month I got all the furniture out of the garage pressure washed it and carried it to the front porch by myself, that’s an accomplishment and still wasn’t tired.

Sandy Shaw

 

I have diabetes. When I started the alkaline diet and Yoli my a1c was 11.8 and I was taking metformin and glipzide. Both twice a day. After 3 months on with a high alkaline diet and Yoli my a1c went down to 5.8. And I was able to stop taking glipzide. I have never felt better.

PROOF – Eczema and Psoriasis Sufferers Relieved by Alkalizing their Bodies

By Dr. Jeff Ring | Health Conditions , Testimonials

alkalete_for_plaque_psoriasisListen closely…

For those of you who suffer from the ravages of eczema and psoriasis, this article could change your life.

New research about eczema and psoriasis reveals the reason you are needlessly suffering has a great deal to do with your eating habits.

… and more specifically, how the foods you eat affect the pH balance in your body.

Our #1 Recommended System for Eczema

Please note this is NOT a cure or treatment for eczema, however, we’ve seen hundreds of testimonials from people who have alkalized their bodies and had unbelievable skin results.

Try our 30 Day Phit Kit:

30 Day Phit Kit

Over 7.5 million Americans suffer from psoriasis and another estimated 10-20% suffers from eczema.

One of the most positive steps you can take to treat, and even cure these diseases, is by understanding how the acidity in your diet not only causes, but exacerbates eczema and psoriasis.

At Living Phit, we’ll tell you not only why your diet causes these diseases, but by learning to change what you eat will help you improve these conditions dramatically.

Not up for changing your diet?

That’s ok.  We’ll also talk about some supplements that alkalize the body, and how you can get them for free.

How Acidity Affects Skin Conditions Such as Eczema and Psoriasis

To maintain a healthy balance, your body is directly affected by its pH level. The pH level simply refers to the acid/alkaline balance.

The pH range is from 1-14. A neutral balance level is 7.

Anything below 7 is rated as acidic, and the lower the number – the higher the amount of acidity. The alkaline level is anything above 7 and the higher the number – the higher the alkaline level.

The optimum of peak performance that the body operates is at a pH level of 7.40 – 7.46 which means the body needs to be slightly alkaline.

When you consume a high acidic diet such as lots of refined sugars, sodas, grains and other types of foods, the body becomes more acidic or toxic.

It is a well-documented fact that when the body becomes more acidic, the body’s organs have to work much harder to balance its internal pH level which it does so naturally.

When your pH levels are more acidic, the body begins to use up the minerals the body has stored.

Don’t have time to eat right to reduce acidic waste?  Try supplementing your diet with Pure Synergy Superfood Green Powder.

Pure Synergy USDA Organic Green Superfood Price: $54.95 Pure Synergy USDA Organic Green Superfood Full Disclosure: We earn a commission if you click this link and make a purchase, at no additional cost to you. Last Updated: 09/05/2018

And, the organs, such as the kidneys, have to work harder to rid itself of this acidity. To reduce the body’s acidity the body begins to deplete itself of vital minerals such as potassium, magnesium and calcium. Some of these vital minerals are even leached from the bones.

Other organs such as the lungs and the skin also become utilized by your body to expel the acid build-up. This means that acidic toxins which are normally expelled by the kidneys build up on the surface and within the skin.

This build-up of this acidity is one of the primary reasons why a person will break out with eczema or psoriasis!

How Alkalizing the Body Can Heal Eczema and Psoriasis

Once you understand that the body requires a diet which is around 70-80% alkaline and not more than 20-30% acidic, your body will begin to cease and reduce the acidity in your skin.

The resulting effect will make your skin:

  • More alkaline and less acidic, and
  • Will begin to repair your skin and greatly diminish, if not eliminate the effects of both eczema and psoriasis.

By learning which foods are alkaline and which foods are acidic you can adjust your diet to compensate for the excess of acidity in your body. As a result, you will begin to neutralize and restore the body’s homeostasis or equilibrium.

Testimonials from Actual Eczema and Psoriasis Sufferers

If you’re like me, you’re going to be skeptical about how something as simple as pH balance can be such a big factor in your skin’s health.

I was skeptical too, until I read testimonial after testimonial from people who were able to control their disease by alkalizing the body.

Here are some testimonials, along with before and after pictures.

As you’ll see, there is something very practical behind the scientific research which shows how your pH levels are a major cause of both eczema and psoriasis.

How you Can Alkalize The Body Through Diet or Supplements

The natural way to alkalize your body is through your diet.

… although it may not be the easiest way.

It’s very clear that some of most alkalizing foods consist of dark green leafy vegetables, fruits, lentils and many others which you can find in our article on “105 High Alkaline Foods” and which foods to avoid.

Fruits are alkaline? Now, although you might think that fruits are acidic, and they are in their normal state, they actually become very alkaline when they become metabolized in the body.

Some of the most acidic foods which you should avoid altogether include alcohol, coffee, sugar and especially sodas!

Don’t Want to Change Your Diet?  We Have a Solution

At Living Phit we realize that it’s not always that easy to eat sensibly and achieve that perfect alkaline diet, so you can compensate for the acidic foods that you eat by using alkaline forming supplements.

These alkaline supplements consist of pH drops or pills, and will counter the negative effects of acidic causing foods.

Testimonials & Before and After Pictures

You’ll find many of the testimonials below are from people who used our 30 Day Phit Kit or Alkalete by Yoli, which helped their skin condition.  Some of these were taken from a private Facebook group of Yoli members, simply sharing their success with other people who take Yoli.  We did not solicit these testimonials.  We simply asked permission to post them here.

However, I’ve also read many positive reviews from people who were able to manage their condition with diet alone.  You can read some here.

Billie Schmidt – Severe Plaque Psoriasis

I want to share my story… I originally started with a low carb diet and YOLI because I have been struggling with weight loss for several months and nothing else was working. I was hopeful, having several people I know doing the program and having good results. I followed the program to a T but much to my dismay, wasn’t losing any weight or inches after the 1st month. I decided to give the program another month, hoping the weight loss would happen.

I suffer from severe plaque psoriasis. For those of you that aren’t familiar with it, there is no cure for it and all of the medicines out there to help control it, usually do your body more harm than good. I noticed it getting better but thought it was due to the summer months and being out in the sun more. While awaiting my 2nd months shipment, I ran out of Alkalete and was without it for 2 days. In those 2 days, my psoriasis flared back up pretty bad. It was then that I realized the Alkalete was drastically helping my psoriasis.

After 2 months of the program not helping with weight loss, but the Alkalete being good for my psoriasis, I have cancelled everything except the Alkalete. I will be getting my 4th month of it next week. Although I’m disappointed about not losing any weight or inches on the program, I’m very grateful that my psoriasis is FINALLY under control and looks AWESOME!!!!! So, thank you healthy food choices and YOLI, for helping a girl out!!!!!

Sherri Rasmussen – Psoriasis

I have psoriasis on my body and scalp… Have been on loading dose 2 weeks now. Huge difference on my body already! Scalp is tougher I think, but I do believe a healthy lifestyle and Yoli in conjunction with increased water intake are helping tremendously.

While Yoli costs over $315 for a 1 month supply, our 30 Day Alkalizing Phit Kit has similar ingredients at a DEEP discount.  Check it out!

Julie Clausen Sheppard – Eczema

I’m so excited to share this. I have not worn white cotton gloves for over a month now!  Bye Bye Eczema!

I went to a dermatologist, who prescribed me various steroid creams trying to find 1 that would work. When I heard about Yoli I thought that it might do the trick. I have 2 admit, I became frustrated when no results after 1 month, even after 2 months . The suggestion I go gluten free was made. But really, after the past 3 weeks of not really eating the healthiest  I don’t believe that was it.

My body just needed more time to repair and heal!

Wade Miller – Eczema and Psoriasis

I have eczema and slight psoriasis also. I have been on my new alkaline diet and Yoli since November 18th 2013 and I am completely free of any of it as of right now. No itching, no patches of dry skin or nothing.

Juliann Walter – Psoriasis

I used to receive painful shots in my elbows for years to rid myself of psoriasis. Nothing really helped.

Now I have the best elbows in Webster County Iowa.

He has severe allergies and eczema and she contacted me as she had heard about the Alkalete and how ph balance could help his eczema. She brought him to see me the other day (about 3 weeks in) and he looks amazing.  She said he is no longer itching either!!

Krista Vallejo Nixon – 6 year old son with Peeling Hands

I’m not one to talk about myself with others and I was a big skeptic about this Yoli Buisness. But I tell you all, that I am a believer!
First I started the new lifestyle program after my sister talked me into it. Had nothing to lose and everything to gain. If I lost weight great, if I had more energy great.   So I started on July 11, 2014 at 150.5 lbs. Today I’m 143.5 and six inches thinner in my waist alone! I love the passion! I have not had one soda or coffee since!

My new alkaline diet and Yoli has changed my family as well. My youngest son, 6y/o had a new problem of peeling hands. They were like lizard skin, peeling like crazy and he would pick until he had sores. I started giving him the alkelete and with in 6 days his hands were healed. No peeling what so ever. I even canceled my dr appt I made, because it was so much better by the time he could see him. It was amazing!

Jessica Kapler – Breakout or Rash

My 17 Year old son, Michael, had some sort of breakout on his face.  I had him take Alkalete in the morning and night.  Here are his pictures after 3 days!

Also be sure to check out Debbie Stickney’s testimonial (which includes plaque psoriasis) on our testimonials page.

Jason Dana – Son with Eczema

My 5 yr old son has had severe eczema since he was a baby. He’s allergic to cats, dogs and peanut butter. Any contact with animals, or just hot weather cause his symptoms intensify! He’s consistently had rough scabbed and sometimes bloody skin behind his knees, the creases of his arms and in the folds of his neck. I can’t remember a day where we weren’t telling him to stop scratching. It’s honestly heartbreaking to watch him scratch until he bleeds, but I know he can’t stop. We’ve tried every lotion, cream, supplement with no noticeable relief to his symptoms. Around 5/2014 my friend, Chris Huntley, told me about the low carb diet and Yoli Alkalete and how it helped his wife with similar symptoms she was having from wearing her wedding ring. I’ve read some things about how our bodies do better when our ph balance is more alkaline so I was intrigued. At this point, I’d almost try anything. We bought a bottle to try it out. At first, we’d empty the capsule and mix with water or juice. After a few times, he just swallowed the pills with no problem. The results weren’t immediate. However, he wasn’t scratching as much. His eczema scabbed skin was so bad that it wasn’t until about 3-4wks when we really started noticing his skin looking better. Almost all the scabs have healed and I noticed I wasn’t constantly telling him to stop scratching.

I definitely feel our lifestyle changes have helped my son’s eczema because we recently went on a 10 day vacation and forgot to bring the Yoli bottle and his eczema flared up again. Now we’re back home and he’s taking it again. We’ve been religiously giving him the alkaline system and applying eczema cream to keep his skin moisturized. Hoping to get his skin back to the way it was prior to our trip.

Don’t have time to eat right to reduce acidic waste?  Try supplementing your diet with Alkalete.

Request a Consultation

As mentioned earlier, while acidity is a major contributing factor to skin health, it’s not the only one.

Many of the testimonials above come from people who not only took alkalizing measures, but also were on Yoli’s Better Body System, which includes a weight loss component, probiotics, and healthy drink replacements for soda and coffee.

According to Dr. Angie Cross, other than due to a poor diet, many skin condition causes may be autoimmune related, hormone related, or related to gut health. 

So if you have eczema or psoriasis, please consider an alkaline diet or alkalizing supplements not as treatment, but a way to create a detoxified, healthy body… a body that might just react by clearing up your skin!

How 6 Rheumatoid Arthritis Sufferers Kicked RA in the Face by Going Alkaline

By Chris Huntley | Health Conditions , Testimonials

alkaline diet rheumatoid arthritisIf you suffer from rheumatoid arthritis, you know about the fatigue and the debilitating pain it brings.

… But did you know that some RA sufferers have experienced major benefits by going alkaline?

In this article, we’ll tell you how metabolic acidosis (acid accumulation in the body) directly impacts rheumatoid arthritis, and give you some simple diet and mineral suggestions that have reduced the impact of this disease for many.

Rheumatoid Arthritis Introduction & Causes

Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic condition that generally occurs in the joints of the body causing them to become inflamed, and results in swelling, pain, stiffness and loss of function.

It is an autoimmune disease that not only affects the cartilage and bones but can also have an impact on other body organs.

Most researchers aren’t clear on what causes rheumatoid arthritis. The best they have been able to ascertain is that there are a variety of factors which might contribute to this chronic condition.

Researchers believe that rheumatoid arthritis may be caused by a person’s genetics which cause them to be more prone to the condition. The disease might also be caused by biological triggers or environmental causes.

How Acidosis Contributes to RA

Research suggests that rheumatoid arthritis may also be a result of excess acidosis within the body.

This means that the body retains an excess amount of acidity caused by metabolic, dietary and environmental sources.

Acidosis causes an increase in the white cells which attack various parts of the body and can result in a variety of diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis.

These white cells are an autoimmune response that can specifically target the joints in the body which results in the inflammation and pain caused by this disease.

A diet which creates excess acidity will become toxic to the body because it can build up in the cells of the body.

Maintaining a Healthy pH

The human body has its own specific pH requirements in order for it to remain healthy. Our human body ideally needs a pH level of 7.40-7.46 to remain healthy and operate at optimum health.

Phit tip: Here are the multi colored pH strips we recommend for a more accurate reading:

If you don’t know what pH refers to, it is an acidic/alkaline measure of a particular substance. A neutral pH level, which is neither acidic nor alkaline, is 7.0. Anything above this number is alkaline and anything below this number is acidic.

The foods we eat become broken down and are either metabolized into the cells and become either acidic or alkaline.

This means that some foods that we eat like refined carbohydrates, fast foods, and foods which contain chemical and preservatives will cause a toxic build-up of acid in our body.

Acidosis will deplete the oxygen levels in the cells and will deplete the amount of vitally needed calcium along with other important minerals such as magnesium.

That is why we recommend supplementing with a good multivitamin that has both calcium AND magnesium.

Although the body will try to eliminate this acidic waste through respiration, excretion and urination, it can only do so much. Excess acidity causes the body to become ill and prone to a vast variety of diseases and may have a direct bearing in causing rheumatoid arthritis.

The Benefits of “Going Alkaline”

high alkaline foodsAn alkaline based diet will combat the debilitating effects of the toxicity of acidosis and help the body to begin to heal itself.

Although some acidic based foods are necessary in our diet, these are foods which should only be consumed in very limited amounts.

Some of the foods which have a high acidic include sodas, coffee, and overcooked meats. Alcohol and processed sugar are also unhealthy, acidic foods which should be avoided.

By reducing the amount of acidity in your body, the body is able to restore its natural pH balance which will reduce the production of white cells which attack various parts of the body as part of the auto-immune response.

There are a variety of foods which have an excellent alkalizing effect and restore the body’s pH level. This, in turn, reduces white cell production and even eliminates the effects of many diseases such as those caused by rheumatoid arthritis.

Foods that are high in alkaline properties include most vegetables and fruits. Although you might be concerned about the natural acidic state of many fruits, they actually become very alkaline when metabolized during digestion.

Problems Dieting?  Try Alkaline Supplements

UCLA psychology professor, Traci Mann, says that diets aren’t the problem… the problem is most people won’t stick to them.

Here at Living Phit, we understand how difficult it is to eat properly and avoid those foods which can cause acidosis.

So unless you’re one of the few Americans who can make good eating choices and stick to them, we recommend looking into pH supplements that can reduce acidosis. There are several varieties, but mostly come in the form of both pH drops and pills.

Real-life testimonial from Our Friend, Ali Atwell in Boston, MA

Ali Atwell - rheumatoid arthritis cure

Ali Atwell was an active waitress and mother until she got RA.

Before Jan 2011, I was a scholarship athlete.  I ran marathons, worked long hard days on my feet and had tons of energy to travel and have fun. All that came to a crashing halt when I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis and simple tasks like buttoning my pants, tying my shoes, and washing dishes were now painful hardships.

I was in constant pain – all day long.  I have a very high tolerance for pain, but some days or nights I would be in agony and multiple times ended up at the ER.  I would get inflammation in my shoulder, hands, and feet on a daily basis. The doctors prescribed medications – over $4000 a month worth of chemicals to “treat” my RA.  I still felt horrible and now I couldn’t care for my two young children 1 and 5 months old.  I wasn’t even able to cut their waffles in the morning.

My primary source of income before RA was waitressing and that was an impossibility. I can remember one Easter I couldn’t stand up straight and walk up the driveway to the family Easter brunch.  I cried the whole day.  I think the thing that is worse than the pain is the fatigue and depression.  I was so so so tired all the time, I had no desire to see friends and family and would avoid phone calls and gatherings.

I started with positive dietary changes and the *Yoli Better Body System on Dec1, 2013 – I lost 40 lbs in 4 months, 50 all together and came off all my medications in a little over 2 months. That was 15 months ago!

Once starting the BBS I was amazed at how much energy I had.  I wasn’t falling asleep on the couch at 2 in the afternoon and I was up past 8pm!!  My joint stiffness in the morning used to last at least an hour and half to two hours and now I am stiff for about 10 mins in the mornings.

I was even able to run a half Marathon last August!! I play with my kids, my marriage is better, my relationships with my family and friends are better, I have broken out of the shy shell that I use to live in and share my story with others in an attempt to help them feel better. But, that’s not all…I have been financially transformed as well. Sometimes I think that God gave me the RA so that I would find Yoli and help others to live happier, healthier lives.

I do want to be clear, I still have RA – some days I wake up feeling better than others. My bad days are usually after I have had something that I shouldn’t have, ie gluten. Starting the BBS along with an alkaline diet not only gave me the proper supplementation, but it also helped me to learn what my trigger foods are.

Yoli gave me my life back, literally.

My husband Tom and I have been on the BBS which also involves healthy food choices for 2 months tomorrow and have each lost over 25 pounds and definitely INCHES! Tom has a severe lung disease and couldn’t walk 20 feeet without having to stop to catch his breath…now he walks alot longer distance and does so much better. I have had Rheumatoid Arthritis for 15+ years and have always been on really strong drugs for this. Now I found out its damaging my liver, so… I went on Yoli!! Just went to both my medical Dr and my RA dr and they both told me to keep doing what I’m doing cause its working!!! I’m off all my Rheumatoid meds and cholesterol meds. We both have our lives back and tons of Energy…Thanks BBS.

Brenda DeMey Brincks

 

I am being treated for RA. Mid June appt. it was recommended I start a new medication because I seemed to be getting worse. I decided to wait awhile. In the mean time I decided to try a new healthy lifestyle and Yoli, felt I had nothing to lose. Today I am into week 5. Last week I saw my Rheumatologist . She said my joints were the best she had seen them. I haven’t needed to hold on to the railing with both hands when coming down the stairs in the morning because I was in so much pain. The Fatigue is the biggest change. I have all this energy that was unbelievable to me.  I know I am having more good days than bad. I am not symptom free yet but feel hopeful that I can get there.  Another bonus this morning I am now down 13 pounds!!

Daisy N.

 

I was diagnosed with RA in 2003. I went on all the meds they recommended and I was sicker than I had been without them! In 2005 I started seeking therapy in natural healing…I changed my diet and removed high fructose corn syrup, aspartame and many dyes….then I started getting away from boxed food items with preservatives. Each of these things along with acupuncture and reflexology treatment freed me from my symptoms, but I still felt weak and tired..then in May I started a high alkaline diet along with Yoli….I finally felt like me again. I have energy and I don’t wake up feeling like I need more sleep!

Michelle V.

 

Forgive me upfront for my long post…but I often hear the question “what is Yoli?”… Today I saw a successful business member named Lucille give the perfect answer…she said “Yoli is a gift of life”…This is exactly what this high alkaline diet has been for me. Life before my healthy lifestyle changes was filled with constant pain from arthritis in both hips, degenerative disk disease, partially torn rotator cuff and adenomyosis. I could not sit for long, stand for long,walk for long and i definitely could not ru…n like i wanted to…in addition i had suffered from depression and anxiety for years leaving me unable to drive to unfamiliar places or venture far from home..fast forward to life with yoli…i am pain free, running up to 6 miles again and working out to the likes of P90X…even with some life stressors i am beating the depression & anxiety & driving anywhere, this morning i woke up wanting to go to the Cape May zoo but no one could go…who cares i’ll go by myself lol … in August i even flew to Utah, road a gondola up a mountain and hiked back down it … to most of you these are normal events to me they are life changers!! I like the new me and I love yoli and my healthy food choices … “YOLI AND A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE IS A GIFT OF LIFE”

Michelle Long Ross

*Yoli products are not intended to “treat” any medical disorder.  However, we’ve seen time and time again, that when people lose weight and detoxify their bodies on the Yoli system, the body tends to become a natural healer and overall better health is achieved.  In some cases, as in the cases above, it has helped people with RA, but everyone’s results will be unique.

Healthy Eating & Supplementation

Bottom line… While anyone with rheumatoid arthritis can probably sidestep a lot of harmful effects of RA by losing weight and eating alkaline, we simply don’t see too many testimonials of people who have been successful with diet alone.

If that’s your situation, we recommend that you consider Alkalete by Yoli, which is proven to help alkalize your body.

You can buy it at retail below or call Brenda to learn how to get a big discount by becoming a “preferred customer.”

People Who Obliterated High Blood Pressure -The Better Body System

By Steven Roberts | Testimonials

High blood pressure is one the greatest health risk facing Americans right now.

As many as 85 million Americans have HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE (also known as “HYPERTENSION”).

This serious medical condition is perhaps the most significant contributor to heart disease, heart attacks and strokes.

Although there are many factors that contribute and can contribute to a person having high blood pressure, one of the biggest culprits is our modern diet.

What Is High Blood Pressure?

Blood pressure is measured as the force which is being applied to the walls of the blood vessels.

Most medical experts agree any person who has blood pressure greater than 140 over 90 millimeters of Mercury (mmHg) has high blood pressure.

(NOTE: NORMAL BLOOD PRESSURE SHOULD BE 120 OVER 80 (mmHg)

Many people who have this condition do not even know they are at risk. The reason is because most people do not have any symptoms until they have a serious health incident such as a heart attack or stroke.

ONLY YOU CAN TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR LIFESTYLE!

Before we take a look at how you can change your lifestyle and especially your diet, let’s take a look at some powerful and thought provoking testimonials of people who crushed their high blood pressure.

Let’s use some inspiration to change your minds about what you eat and how the BETTER BODY SYTEM BY YOLI changed these people lives. This diet system may have saved a few lives in the process.

Testimonials of People Who Smashed their High Blood Pressure Levels

ANTHONY MONROE

anthony monroe

Today is my 1st week results from using Yoli. The beginning phase was a little rough but I made it through it. My blood pressure is lower and I feel great. I’m a long way from my goal but in time I will achieve my dream weight.

Chris since becoming a member of Yoli I have lowered my bp down to the normal level. My last blood work was within range and the doctor lowers my dosages. With healthier eating along with exercise my goals are becoming more and more within reach.

PAT CLARKE

pat clarkeSo, I think it is extremely important for me to share my experience with the Better Body System. I have had an amazing turn around in my health going from being diagnosed as a Type 2 diabetic to a reversal of the symptoms. I have lost 22 lbs. since Feb. and definitely noticed as I walked all around the Iowa State Fairgrounds and as I begin my vacation walking all over at the Old Thresher’s Reunion in Mt. Pleasant, Ia. I have not had significant pain in my arthritic hip as in the past.

I used to break out with a terrible rash on my hands and arm because of an allergic reaction to the sun because of the medications I was taking.

I have noticed being more calm and accepting of other people.

I have become more aware spiritually because of the influence of all my Yoli family and friends.

I was addicted to salt and never in my life would I have ever considered quitting. Heck, I used to put salt on pepperoni pizza. I quit using salt last month and will not ever use a salt shaker again.

I give thanks to God for the gift of health with this program and all the fabulous people who give tremendous support.

I especially want to thank my sister who gave me the method to use this gift of health by sharing the Better Body System with me.

RICHARD LITTLE

richard littleI know I post my transformation on fb last week. But I’d like to share this to my yoli family. Hoping this will give encouragement and motivation to others.
My BBS JOURNEY started on October 13, 2014. I began this journey to get healthier and with hopes to lower my blood pressure as my wife had in the prior 30 days. I was taking 2 blood pressure pills per day with a blood pressure as high as 165/102 and a starting weight of 228.8 lbs. and wearing size 38 pants and Extra Large shirts ( both of which were very tight on me) . I was also having problems sleeping and taking medication (Valium) to help me sleep.
In the first 30 days I lost 22 pounds and 5 inches off my waist without exercising. My blood pressure had dropped to134/84. I felt so much better and with more energy than I’d had in years. I had visited my doctor (in September prior to starting the BBS and then 30 days after starting the program) for a checkup and he was surprised at my weight loss and lower blood pressure and suggested we do blood work. I have continued the BBS program because I love the lifestyle change. Nothing else I have ever tried in the past had worked for me on a continual basis. I visited my doctor again on December 24th and we discussed my blood work results. My cholesterol had dropped from 203 to 178 and my triglycerides have dropped from 154 to 66. All of my blood work showed great improvements. My Doctor’s words were “I’ll give you an A+ in all categories of your blood work. What you’re doing is working for you, DON’T STOP.” As of Dec 27, 2014, I have lost over 40 pounds and 8 inches off my stomach alone. I now wear size 34 pants and size Medium shirt. My blood pressure today averages 127 / 74 with taking one half pill every other day. I expect to completely quit taking blood pressure medication in the near future. I haven’t taken acid reflux medicine in 2 months. I sleep better at night and wake up feeling GREAT. In short I feel more like living than I have in years instead of just existing.

ERMA SORIANO

erma sorianoTransformation Friday.
Though I am not that comfortable sharing my BBS journey, I will share it anyways to help others out there who at some point still doubting themselves, the BBS, & the process.
My intention when I started Yoli back on Sept.2015 was for my own selfish reason only…To Loose Weight!!!
Little did I know that not only would I be losing weight but I will also gain optimal health!
I am loving the new me! It wasn’t easy at first but I ran my own race to wellness. I followed the BBS, listened to my body, enjoyed my own journey. There were ups & downs, but ultimately Yoli gave me back my life & confidence! Yoli turned me into an active hiker, runner, exercise enthusiast, hot yoga addict from being a couch potato and buffet lover. Very happy to say the least that my Hypertension is a lot better that my primary doctor cut my prescription dosage into half, hoping to totally get rid of it someday.
Now my Lipid panels are great from being told before that I am pre HLD. Now my whole family enjoys the health benefits of Yoli as well.
Although I only lost 10 lbs with Yoli ( and 10 lbs. by myself for 8 long months before Yoli), I have gained more muscles, strength, stamina that I never felt, or had in my younger years and for that I am forever grateful.
Thank you Yoli

ADAM FELICIANO

adam felicianoI’ve now lost a total of 32 lbs. on the Better Body System. I feel great and my overall health has improved. No longer do I suffer from gout, hypertension, fatty liver, acid reflux and high cholesterol because this program makes it possible to achieve the proper pH levels for optimal health. High acidity is the cause for most diseases that we develop and this program corrects that. Nothing tastes as good as feeling well again.

I’m still on 2.5 mg of amlodipine or norvasc. Maintained my active lifestyle labs still looking great. Still on maintenance of Alkalete, pure, and fun when I’m working out which is almost everyday.

CLAYTON CHING

clayton chingThis is the biggest former skeptic reporting in. 18 months ago while my son, Chris Ching, and my wife, Carrie Ching, were raving about Yoli I was pooh-poohing them. Then cousin Jason Ching and Ronnie Cruz came and spent a couple of days with us. Since then I have dropped 50 lbs and 8 inches in my waist. I no longer suffer from high blood pressure (hypertension), high cholesterol, or gout attacks. I no longer take meds for high blood pressure or cholesterol and my uric acid is 3.2. Yesterday I had my second colonoscopy and the results were amazing. 6 years ago I had to have 2 polyps removed. Yesterday I was polyp free. Thanks folks! I’m a believer in Yoli now.

Causes of Hypertension/High Blood Pressure

Although our modern high sodium diet can be said to be one to be one of the main culprits, there are a variety of cause than significantly impact your blood pressure.

If any in the following list applies to you – then it’s time to take the “Bull by the Horns” and do what you need to do.

The alternative is either severe disability or death!

Some of the main causes other than diet (which we will discuss in a lot more detail shortly) include:

• Men over age 45 and women over age 65 are more susceptible to having high blood pressure
• Smoking
• Stress
• Genetics (runs in the family)
• Obesity
• Lack of exercise
• Alcohol use
• Underlying medical conditions such as sleep apnea, kidney problems, adrenal and thyroid problems, blood vessel defects and certain medications

Some of these things you can deal with on your own and some you won’t to be able to manage without the help of your doctor.

But one of the main things which is 1 of the biggest approach that you can take action about is your – DIET!!!

If you are at risk then you need to get your blood pressure checked and monitored on a regular basis – DON’T WAIT

How Our Modern Diet Contributes to High Blood Pressure

Although many people use medications prescribed by their doctors, there are also many proactive steps that you can take on your own.

One of the best approaches in reducing hypertension is to make some serious decisions about your what you eat.

The main villain for the increase of those Americans who have been diagnosed with high blood pressure is too much “SODIUM” OR “SALT”.

You find unhealthy and high amounts of sodium in a vast abundance of foods we eat.

Why is there so much sodium or salt in many of the foods we consume? There are 2 reasons. The first is because salt is a natural preservative – it keeps food fresher longer. It allows food manufacturers to keep their product on the shelves longer so there’s less waste and spoilage.

The second reason is taste. People like their food to have some flavor and salt is one of the most commonly used condiments.

Why is sodium or salt bad for us? Well, it’s definitely not all bad because we do need a certain daily intake of sodium in out bodies. The problem is that we consume TOO MUCH!

While the right amount of sodium keeps out body functioning properly – too much sodium cause out bodies to retain water. I’ll explain why this is important shortly because there is something else we need to consider.

BUT! Although many health gurus focus on salt/sodium intake, there’s another vital element to take into account and that is “POTASSIUM.”

Out dietary intake of sodium and potassium go hand in hand. I am mentioning this is because not only are American consuming TOO MUCH SALT, and you are also consuming NOT ENOUGH POTASSIUM in your diet.

The sodium potassium ratio is vital to understand because both these elements play a crucial role in managing blood pressure.

Understanding the Sodium / Potassium Ratio and Lowering Blood Pressure

Both Sodium and Potassium go hand in hand when it comes to regulating blood pressure. There is also increasing evidence that this duo of chemicals can also impact bone health as well.

In Paleolithic times (thousands of years ago), and depending where humans resided, our ancestors are believed to have consumed around 11,000 milligrams (mg) of Potassium per day. Our diet back then consisted of wild vegetables, flowers, nuts, roots, fruit, berries and other plant sources.

Salt was a commodity that was rare, and consequently most inland people only consumed around 700 (mg) of salt per day. That’s a potassium/sodium ratio of 1:16.

The salt consumption of ancestors is actually about 3 times lower than what current dieticians recommend for a healthy intake of daily salt. But, it does show the body adapts in retaining the sodium it needs to function properly.

Today’s dietary intake shows the complete reverse and this is why out diet is OUT OF BALANCE. Most people take in too much sodium but not enough potassium.

In their article “High Blood Pressure and Nutrition” the author points out that:

The American Heart Association recommends limiting daily sodium intake no more than 1,500 milligrams. (A teaspoon of salt has about 2,400 milligrams of sodium.) Most people greatly exceed these sodium guidelines.

Many experts believe that a great many Americans will consume anywhere from between 2,500 mg to as much as 7,500 mg of sodium per day. This is way in excess of the amount we should be consuming.

Unfortunately, much of this sodium is hidden away in processed or prepared foods. We seem to gravitate towards these foods because of its convenience.

On the other side of the equation, Americans are consuming far less Potassium that what they should be consuming.

Most dieticians recommend that we should be taking in about 4,700 mg of Potassium per day. However, many American adults are only averaging around 2,500 mg per day.

This imbalance can easily result in causing or exacerbating high blood pressure and hypertension.

How does it affect blood pressure?

Here’s how Harvard Health Newsletter describes the process in their article “Potassium and Sodium Out of Balance”

In healthy individuals, the kidneys respond to excess sodium by flushing it out in the urine. Unfortunately, this also removes potassium. If potassium levels are low, the body tries to hoard it, which also means hanging onto sodium. Water follows sodium, leading to an increase in the amount of water in the body and the volume of blood in circulation.

The article also goes on to say this imbalance results in the following:

Blood pressure climbs, and the heart must work harder. Excess sodium blunts the ability of blood vessels to relax and contract with ease, and may also over stimulate the growth of heart tissue. All of these responses are made worse by low potassium intake.

How the Better Body System Helps Lower Blood Pressure

First off , and this important – Consult your doctor before you make any drastic changes to your diet. Each person who has high blood pressure does so for many different reasons. Some people have potassium issues such as “HYPERKALEMIA” which impacts kidney function so increasing your amounts of potassium can be very detrimental.

But most of you can make dietary changes which will lower your blood pressure. Some people such as the ones above in our testimonials managed to do so by changing to an “ALAKALINE DIET”. This diet is through YOLI – THE BETTER BODY SYSTEM. Check it out as we are big fans of this product here at Living Phit.

The Sodium Culprits and Hypertension

Here are some of the biggest dietary sodium culprits including:

• Salted snacks
• All processed foods such as frozen foods
• Butter and margarine
• Fast foods
• Regular salad dressings
• Fatty meats
• Whole milk dairy products
• Fried foods
• Canned foods and soups
• Deli meats

Know what you are eating. Always read the labels. Use salt alternatives to flavor your food such as other spices and herbs, vinegar, lemon or fruit juices instead of salt.

The Potassium Good Guys

Here are some of the foods which have higher amount of potassium other than bananas which most everybody knows contains good amounts of Potassium. Here’s a list of some of the best:
.
• White Potato – One cup of this tasty food contains 941 mg potassium but try to avoid butter and salt
• Sweet potato – A medium baked sweet potato has 542 mg (12% DV) of potassium. These tubers are also rich in vitamin A
• Tomato Sauce – One cup contains 728 mg potassium
• Watermelon Wedges – 2 wedges of watermelon have 641 mg of potassium
• Frozen /Fresh Spinach -1 cup spinach has 540 mg of potassium
• Beets – 1 cup of cooked beets has 518 mg of potassium
• Black Beans – Protein and fiber and 738 mg of potassium in 1 cup
• White Beans -Best source of potassium you can find with a whopping 1189 mg along with 20 grams of protein and 13 grams of fiber
• Canned Salmon -Omega 3 rich food and where a 5 oz can contains 487 mg of potassium
• Whole Soybeans -1 cup supplies 676 mg of potassium and a great source of plant based protein
• Butternut Squash – This fall favorite and where 1 cup supplies 582 mg of potassium
• Swiss Chard – 1 cup of this awesome vegetable not gives you 961 mg of potassium but is also rich in Vitamins A, C and K but also Calcium and Iron
• Regular Plain Yogurt – A favorite snack where 1 cup provides 573 mg and a great source of daily calcium

These are just a few of the foods which contain high amounts of potassium but there are many more. A high alkaline diet is a great way to improve your eating habits and redress the sodium/potassium imbalance in today’s diet.

But it’s not just this ratio you need to address because reducing obesity and increasing your physical activity also needs to go hand in hand with lowering your sodium intake and increasing your potassium intake. All these things combined can lower your blood pressure.

And, I am also going to provide some testimonials from people who used this diet and the results they found. The “proof is in the pudding” (which is food you might want to eat in small moderation).

Asides from making a conscious decision to change your dietary habits, your only other alternative for reducing cholesterol is to use medication prescribed by your doctor.

That’s an easy out. Although these prescriptions do work, there are always risks using pharmaceuticals. Personally, I don’t care to end up taking the chance of becoming a “statistical anomaly”. Although side effects are rare, I simply don’t want to play “Russian Roulette” using medications if there is a better and healthier alternative.

This is why I’m such a big fan of obtaining lower cholesterol levels with an alkaline diet because it is ALL NATURAL. This diet just simply makes sense and can also provide you a multitude of other healthier and beneficial side effects.

Hemoglobin: 9.8 to 11
Creatinen: 7.2 to 6.55
Uric acid: 8.5 to 3.6
Cholesterol: 253 to 175
Vit. D: 28.5 to 11.5
A1c: 10.5 to 6.6
EGFR: 8 to 9
As the doctor was reading the results, I couldn’t hold back my tears…tears of JOY! The doctor was speechless and could not find one thing wrong. My wife could not believe what she was hearing!
I give all the credit to YOLI! I BELIEVE! Believe that I will walk away from my dialysis in 2015…. Thank you all for the prayers and overwhelming support. God bless all!

MARY NENNINGER NAPOLITANO

Mary NaplolitanoI started my journey 2 months ago. I am a type 2 diabetic. In September my hgb A1C was 8.0, yesterday it was 6.2 with half the insulin. Last year my cholesterol was 231, this year 118. This is the most incredible result of all, my triglycerides were 642 and are now 132. I have also lost 20 lbs. In 2 months! I just had to brag!

 

LAURIE MEAIKE

Laurie MeaikeJust went to the doctor. Liver function test & cholesterol is drastically improved and cholesterol is well within normal range! AND I get to cut another bp med in half!

I know the scale and measurements have been going down and my shorts keep trying to fall off. So last night as I’m heading out the door I had my daughter snap a picture of me quick. I didn’t realize how different I looked until I put the pictures side by side. I’m feeling pretty awesome about myself!

MICHELLE GRIMM BIBENS

Michelle BibensMy mom has been using Yoli for the past 4 months. She was 5’4″, 130lbs (tiny little woman), but her cholesterol was 240. She has a family history of high cholesterol, so I made her get on the Yoli products. She has somehow managed to lose 10 lbs, and at her checkup today, she found out that her cholesterol is now 192, and her LDL went from 140 to 100!
I’ve had my own amazing transformation with Yoli. But my mom’s transformation means more to me than anything. I think it gave her the gift of 30+ years

 

MAX HANSEN

Max HansenSeveral months ago my doctor told me that my cholesterol level was extremely and dangerously high and he put me on meds.

About that same time, Ron Denney and Melanie Denney introduced us to a new healthy lifestyle “Yoli”.

Last week i had a blood test done to check my levels……. My triglycerides dropped from 336 to 82…my cholesterol dropped from 260 to 140… LDL cholesterol (the bad one) dropped from 176 to 87.. My LDL cholesterol (good one) increased from 34 to 46… My doctor was amazed and shocked… I was able to get off the new cholesterol meds I started 2 months earlier… Half of the blood pressure meds i’ve been on for a few years and completely off the gout meds that ive been on for several years… I also have stopped going through Prilosec like i own stock in it (haven’t taken s single pill compared to 2 or 3 daily).. My energy level is through the roof….Ron and Mel thank you thank you thank you… Without your insight and wisdom, im afraid of what might have been… Oh by the way there has been one side effect for both my wife and myself… I have lost over 34 pounds and she has lost over 50 pounds… I guess its a pretty good side effect to have … Lastly, thanks, praise and glory goes to my Lord and Savior for giving me the opportunity and chance to get healthy and to take control of my health again.

Some Facts About Cholesterol Levels

But first we need to dispel a few myths about cholesterol. Body fat and obesity should not necessarily be automatically linked with high cholesterol. Yet they often are joined because obesity is often linked to a diet which is high in cholesterol.

But, it’s not that simple as a person’s genetics can also play a big role. For example, you might have one individual who is overweight but could have moderate cholesterol levels. Another person who appears to have a healthy body weight/ height ratio may have dangerously high cholesterol levels.

The reason is because cholesterol is not found in the fat you have on your body, it’s found in the blood! This is where you lipids(fat) combines with proteins – and the reason why we measure cholesterol by determining the LIPOPROTEINS.

Cholesterol is measured in several ways including:

• Total cholesterol level
• LDL
• HDL
• Triglycerides

As most people now understand these days, there is “BAD CHOLESTEROL” KNOWN AS (LDL) OR LOW DENSITY LIPOPROTEIN.

LDL is the cholesterol that is what you need to lower. The reason is because this is the type of cholesterol which causes atherosclerosis or a fatty build up in the arteries. This can cause a narrowing of the arteries or a build up of plaque. If this continues unchecked, you can get a heart attack, peripheral artery disease (PAD) or a stroke.

Then, we have the “GOOD CHOLESTEROL” KNOWN AS HDL OR HIGH DENSITY LIPOPROTEIN.

Although the science is not certain what it specifically does, the studies seem to support the hypotheses that HDL helps remove LDL cholesterol away from the arteries. Low levels of HDL are shown to decrease the potential risk of heart disease.

Having higher levels of HDL do help reduce the risk but they are only part of the solution because they only help eliminate anywhere from one third or one fourth of the LDL or bad cholesterol.

So, you go to your doctor who takes a blood sample and they tell you the results of your overall cholesterol levels.

What do they mean? How bad are these levels relative to your overall health?

Here’s a chart to help better understand where you are in terms of either having healthy cholesterol levels, moderate cholesterol levels and if you are in the high risk “RED ZONE”.

So, what else can you do?

Health Benefits of an Alkaline Diet

Folks, you simply have to really re-think and restructure your eating patterns. The ball is in your court. Here at Living Phit, we think the best approach to help yourself is to lower cholesterol levels with an alkaline diet.

Our diet is a lot different from the way our ancestors use to consume food. Most Americans today eat a lot of processed foods which high in salt, sugar, saturated fats and chemicals most of us can’t even pronounce.

We drink a lot of sugary soda beverages which increase the risk of obesity and diabetes. Also, we don’t move a round a lot like the folks did back then. We spend a lot of the time sitting on our behinds and simply don’t get enough exercise. I’m not telling you anything you don’t know but the question – WHAT ARE DOING ABOUT IT?

Here’s what Diabetes Daily has to say about this modern day dietary conundrum

“The modern diet with its lower magnesium, potassium and fiber and higher acidity producing foods has changed in a way that is “mismatched to the genetically determined nutritional requirements” of our ancestors. An overly acidity producing diet can lead to metabolic acidosis that does not best support bodily functions.”

Even more interesting is what the research about modern diets versus the dietary consumption of our ancestors. Diabetes Daily also says that:

“Starting with the agricultural revolution but even more recently in the last 200 years, the typical human diet has reversed it’s ratio of potassium to sodium. It used to be 10 to 1 and is now 1 to 3.”

Saturated fats now also comprise a large bulk of out dietary eating habits and this naturally results in dangerously high cholesterol levels.

It ‘s also obvious that high cholesterol levels are a main contributor of arteriosclerosis, increased levels of plaque which can lead to very high risk of a heart attack, stoke and death.

The Mayo Clinic point out that:

In terms of diet, try to avoid trans fats, as they can increase LDL cholesterol and lower HDL cholesterol levels. Foods prepared with shortening, such as cakes and cookies, often contain trans fats, as do most fried foods and some margarines.

One way to change your eating patterns is to lower cholesterol levels with an alkaline diet.

Another point to remember is that much of the dietary consumption of Americans is a diet which is very acidic. Although different body systems have different pH levels, the body adjusts itself to keep itself in balance.

However, the body can only adjust so much so you end up robbing one portion of your body of vital nutrients to help another system compensate. If the body cannot expel increasing amounts of acidity then it begins to store it up in the cells.

This can lead to or contribute to the development of a variety of health issues especially plaque AND narrowing of the arteries, Diabetes 2 and many other common health conditions.

Changing your diet to one which is more alkaline can help the body readjust and expel the waste which has built up in the cells. As you can see from the variety of Testimonial Pages, many people can experience significant improvement in such areas like:

People Who Lost Over 50 Pounds – The Better Body System

How 6 Rheumatoid Arthritis Suffers Kicked RA in the Face by Going Alkaline

Proof that Alkalizing the Body Relieve Eczema and Psoriasis Sufferers

It’s a simple fact that if you want or need to lower your cholesterol levels than the best approach is to change to a more alkaline diet. An alkaline diet can eliminate a lot of the food which is high in cholesterol.

Most nutrition experts believe that the ideal ratio should be 80% alkaline and 20% acidic, although others suggest that a 60/40 ratio can achieve the same effects.

Needless to say that any foods which are high in saturated fats such as many red meats, processed and fast foods, various dairy products, and sodas should be significantly reduced from your diet.

Diets which focus on vegetables, certain nuts and many fruits should be the focus of your diet so you can lower cholesterol levels with an alkaline diet. Although you might think fruit is naturally acidic, it actually becomes alkaline when it is metabolized.

If you are struggling with this there are dietary plans such as YOLI – THE BETTER BODY SYSTEM which can help achieve your goal of lowering cholesterol levels and teaching you to eat right. The system uses all natural supplements which has a multitude of health benefits.

Lowering your cholesterol levels with an alkaline diet can reduce the many diseases associated with a diet high in cholesterol. As you can see from the testimonials above, this BETTER BODY SYSTEM helped these people crush and significantly reduce dangerously high levels of cholesterol.

Candyce Sexton

I’ve lost 91lbs. – 81lbs in 7 months and the last 10 just at my year mark. That was 18 months ago. I maintain with about 5lb fluctuation Before Yoli, I was 231 pounds and suffering from chronic pain and severe depression….the pain would get so bad that take handfuls of pain pills at a time to try and make it stop. I tried everything to get on the other side of it. It took 6 weeks of Yoli to start to see a significant change. I was practically pain pill free after 5 years of chronic pain…. And am in the best shape ever.

YOU TOTALLY NAILED IT CANDYCE!

I have had a lot of people tell me they can’t afford it. I know actually how they feel I was the same way. Now I would do anything to keep it in my life. I tried other products and they didn’t work. I get those people also that are skeptical of Yoli! But the results are what sell this product! I started in January and I have lost 51 pounds lots of inches have went from a 20 to a loose 14. Cholesterol is down 60 points. No more sleeping

She said, “I think I may know something that could help you.” Two weeks later, I started the BBS!! Within 4 days, my pain disappeared and I had no more acid reflux. That was June 9, 2015. My husband, my daughter and I
began our physical transformations that day. I have lost 70 pounds and went from size 16/18 to a 3/4! My husband, daughter, and I have lost a collective 200 pounds!

How Did These People Who Lost More Than 50 Pounds Do It?

Obesity abounds in America today. This is because many Americans have become food addicts.

Obesity is a major cause of many diseases and health conditions including diabetes, high blood pressure, and cardiac disease. Obesity also causes a multiple of other health conditions such joint pain, gout, back strain and many other conditions – all of which can be avoided and even eliminated altogether.

The Secret of a Successful Diet Plan

Why is this diet plan so successful for people who lost more than 50 pounds? It incorporates 3 simple steps which I am going to briefly outline to inspire you to learn more.

1. Diets Should be Simple

You don’t want to spend all day having to think about what you eat. Nor do want to keep having to go to some app to count calories. At Living Phit, we believe you shouldn’t have to spend all your time thinking about what you are eating.

This alkaline diet plan takes most of the worry away. And yes, you will get all the calories you need along with all the right nutrients to keep you healthy and feeling full.

2. Beat the Carbs

You should know by now if you’ve even done some preliminary research on how to lose weight that carbs are the biggest culprits when it comes to putting on the pounds. The dieting approach that we like here at Living Phit tells you how to use the right substitutes. We also don’t eliminate all the carbs because the body does need some to stay fit.

This NOT A “NO CARB” diet either. This is a LOW CARB diet so keep that in mind because there is a big difference.

3. Focus on the Alkaline Food Group

This is a BIG ONE here that we strongly believe here at Living Phit. The human body is a relatively fine tuned bio-mechanical machine. A healthy body operates best when it has the a balanced pH level.

If you don’t remember you science classes then let me briefly state that all liquids (including your blood all those liquids in the individual cells of your body) can be measured as being as either “ACIDIC” or “ALKALINE”.

Anything below the number 7 is acidic and anything above is alkaline. Medical researchers have clearly determined that a healthy body best operates and is healthiest when its pH levels are between 7.35 and 7.45. This means that the human body likes to be slightly alkaline.

All the foods you eat also have a pH level. Some foods are much more acidic while others are more alkaline. Most foods which Americans eat today are high on the acidic side. This is not good for the human body which tries to expel the acidity trough normal bodily functions.

You can learn more about this by reading Natasha Turner’s (ND) enlightening article “Tired? Overweight? – You Might Be Too Acidic” who says that:

This is because, outside of the stomach, acidity is a cause of hormonal imbalance, specifically growth hormone (HGH). And if we recall from my book The Hormone Diet, hormonal balance plus the difference in calories equals weight loss, then anything that upsets hormonal balance has the potential to cause weight gain.

Unfortunately, the body can only do so much. When it can’t expel all the excess acidity, these acids begins to be absorbed by the cells and in the muscle. This is also called “DIETARY ACIDOSIS.”

Many researchers have clearly shown there is strong link associated with many ailments that permeate modern society. And, on the reverse side of the coin they have also shown that many of these common ailments can be significantly reduced when a person focuses on a diet which is alkaline.

Learn more about this and read check out this page on “pH Balance Benefits”

It also happens that many of these acidic based foods are also the primary contributor of weight gain. So, needless to say – an alkaline diet is the best approach to help you shed that weight.

The above Testimonials of people who lost more than 50 pounds or more speaks volumes.

These are all regular people who lost 50 pounds or more with the BETTER BODY SYSTEM BY YOLI.

IF THEY CAN DO IT – SO CAN YOU!

How to Lose 3 1/2 Inches Around Your Waist without Breaking a Sweat

By Chris Huntley | Testimonials , Weight Loss , Yoli

Before_and_After_Yoli_4-1-14_and_7-15-14_with_Stats

I love simple, easy diets.

Recently, I quickly and easily dropped 16 lbs and 3.5 inches around my waist without breaking a sweat.

… that’s almost a literal statement.  I think I worked out 3 or 4 times during the entire 2 month period I dropped this weight.

Sound good so far?

Did I mention the diet allows you to eat carbs, cheeseburgers, candy bars… pretty much anything you want?

(Spoiler alert: you don’t get to eat candy bars every day.  Sorry.) 🙂

If it sounds intriguing, then you’re in luck, because I’ve had so many people ask me what I did, that I’ve laid it all out for you in this article.

Back to High School

I’ve never been muscular, so at 6’1, a good range for me over the years has been between 165 to 170.

However, in 2013, my weight began slipping away from me a bit.  I got up to 175, then 180, and topped out at 183 in November 2013.  (I wish I had that picture)

Over the next 5 months I tried to be a bit more conscious about what I ate, and in April 2014, I read an article about how most peoples’ ideal weight is how much they weighed when they graduated high school.  For me, that was 162 lbs.

In the preceding months, I had been introduced to the Better Body System by Yoli, by another founding couple of this site, Angel and Tulane Rivera.  As independent distributors for Yoli, they had told me about some of the amazing results their friends and customers were getting on the Better Body System.

They system is quite easy, and contains 4 of the 5 “eat phit” principles we teach at Living Phit for weight loss.

Here’s the program in a nutshell:

  • Wake up and immediately drink a Passion energy drink – contains 110 mg of caffeine, gives you energy, and acts as a mild appetite suppressant
  • 30 min later drink a Yoli YES shake (they taste amazing)
  • Eat 3 protein snacks during the day (one example might be a cheesestick, 10 almonds, and a couple pieces of turkey bacon.  Another example might be a hard boiled egg and some turkey jerkey.)
  • Drink another YES shake at night
  • If I got hungry before bed I would eat a couple celery sticks with PB
  • 3 days per week, you get to mix in some fruit and good carbs.  That keeps you feeling normal.

Overall, it was really easy, and I’ve found it’s been easy to maintain as the shakes are delicious and you’re not really hungry on the plan.  Moreover, I’ve learned some awesome new eating habits, and in the process I also pretty much kicked soda, and drink Yoli’s Truth drink instead, which is amazing.
