"Enough Already! Stop Coming Up With 'New' Weight Loss Programs...
By: Chris Guerriero
Great weight loss techniques are completely worthless.
That's a true statement 99.7% of the time.
Great weight loss techniques are a scam on oneself.
That's also a true statement 99.7% of the time.
Great weight loss techniques NEVER make you thin, lean, healthy, or sexy!
Also a true statement 99.7% of the time.
Great weight loss techniques waste your time, and get you really frustrated..
Again, a true statement 99.7% of the time.
Great weight loss techniques almost ruined my life and my business.
I stopped it - As soon as I saw this horrifying trend in the industry years ago, I stopped testing our new technique after new technique on my clients.
You might think that makes me sound like a quitter - but let me explain how this simple 'step back' allowed my clients to all take 10 steps forward towards their goals.
I define Information Overload as: A condition whereby weight loss techniques come to you in such abundance that you have trouble keeping up with all of them.
When you turn on the television you see them, when you listen to the radio you hear about them, when you enter a store you see signs for them, and they're all "new", and they all proclaim to have finally found a revolutionary combination of exercises, or diets, or nutrients, or some other new gadget that promises you the body of a model or of a bodybuilder if you just buy one bottle of pills or one new system, etc, etc, etc...
For 15 years, my staff and I tested all the new products we came across, trying to determine what worked and what didn't.
When we found a technique that worked, we tested it and tested it and tested it again to make sure that it worked every time it was used by someone.
But there was one common denominator - everything that worked, everything that was actually getting people great results, was already known to man.
Not many of the "new" techniques were actually working.
Every few days. Another technique came across my desk that was supposed to make people thin and healthy. It was amazing.
People trying to lose weight were caught up on Information Overload. They were literally paralyzed because they had too much information. they literally had no idea how or where to get started, and when they did start, they changed direction every time they came across another 'miracle weight loss technique'.
It's a vicious cycle that continues today.
Does any of this sound familiar?
To many, you know this scenario all to well. All to well.
Having loads of information, at first, is thought to be a good thing by most. Years later, when you've done nothing you realize this fact...
Information Overload is an enemy. One that if not controlled will hold hostage your goals and dreams.
There's only one way out.
Decide on 1 tried and true weight loss program that 'does it' for you.
And open fire on the enemy with your only weapon.
It's the step that changed my life and the lives of my clients around the world.
Some of you are asking, "Where did Charles find the information to help him finally take control this life-destroying monster and reach his goals".
Scroll down. It's in the PS of this email.
P.S. Charles put all other program aside, he stopped listening to everyone in the gym who willingly wanted to share their 'secrets' with him, and he quickly changed the channels on the radio and television every time another unsubstantiated weight loss program was being advertised that would just add to his Information Overload. Then he picked up a copy of the Living Health Weight Loss Audio and listened over and over again to 3 deceptively simple techniques that helped him clear his mind of all the garbage, and start getting real, healthy, fast results.
It's the ONLY program like it on the market. Fact. Learn More Now

The Power of Stretching - Dave Snape
muscles ache from a good stretch. This is quite
normal and is part of the process. Stretching has
seemingly been with us and particularly with athletes
since the beginning of time.
A very key point to good stretching is to hold the
stretch for at least seventeen seconds. This is a
pearl of wisdom gleaned from a ballet teacher a few
years back. She said that any stretch under 17
seconds was just not effective.
The 17 second rule is exceeded in the high intensity
Bikram's yoga where stretches are held for about 30
seconds. Don't forget the high level of heat that is
used in Bikram's to extract that last little bit of
stretch out of your muscles. An interesting twist
is not necessary to gain benefits from stretching.
it can't hurt, right?
So what kind of benefits can you expect from
stretching? That's an easy one. Have you ever seen
movie, Blood Sport? Did you know that Frank Dux could
truly stretch his body to the extreme. The actor that
played him was quite elastic as well.
Great elasticity is also something you might see in
well trained Spetsnaz (Russian) agents. They often
out with Russian kettlebells too. They are for
strength gains and the ability to withstand ballistic
Why are stretching and flexibility considered
to these people? Stretching gives one the ability to
have explosive power available at one's fingertips
without the need to warm up. Of course most of us are
not martial artists or agents. But, you'll be happy
know there are plenty of other benefits.
Let me give you an example. After learning to sit in
the full lotus position for long periods of time, my
ankles became very flexible. One day I was walking
along and my left foot fell into a pothole. This
pushed my ankle sideways to about 90 degrees from
Amazingly, this didn't even hurt, not one bit. If my
ankle hadn't been so flexible, I may have suffered a
sprained ankle. At the very least, it would have hurt
Key point: stretching helps you to avoid injuries.
Not only that but if you do have a muscle, tendon or
ligament injury it should heal faster, theoretically
Stretching actually grows the ligaments, tendons and
muscles being stretched. They really grow longer over
Check with your physician before undertaking any type
of exercise, including stretching.

instructional material on stretching:
