A Coordinated Campaign Against Calories

Weight Loss Highway Sign



To achieve optimal results, you should design a program that combines several elements into an overall plan that is both effective and long lasting. If your regimen is overly demanding and requires great personal deprivation, willpower and sacrifice, you will most likely not stick to it for the long term, so make sure your plan is realistic and enjoyable as well as being effective.

A good campaign should include three primary components; a natural weight loss supplement, great tasting, low-calorie foods, and some type of regular exercise. In the grand scheme of things, your primary goal should be lifelong improvement in your overall health, and weight loss should be your secondary, subordinate goal to that.

Natural Weight Loss Supplements

The right supplement can help you reduce your calorie intake without depriving you of all the foods you love. In selecting a supplement, however, the key word is “natural.” There are several types of supplements, and as you know a vast array of products are available on the market.  We are all bombarded with advertising claims on the Internet every day. Generally speaking, all weight loss supplements fall into one of two broad categories; natural-based supplements and chemical-based supplements.

 Chemical-based supplements originate in laboratories and are often closely related to amphetamines. These products frequently have unpleasant side effects and problems, and can also be addictive. Virtually all chemical supplements require prescriptions, and are highly regulated. In addition, the effectiveness of these products often diminishes after eight to twelve weeks as the body becomes used to them.

Natural, or “herbal” supplements, on the other hand, are made from naturally occurring substances, making them much safer in terms of both side effects and dependency, and most do not require prescriptions.

We recommend  that you consider only natural supplements, and this website will from time to time promote offers for what we believe to be the best weight loss supplements available.

Great Tasting, Low Calorie Foods 

The second component of your overall weight loss plan is a diet consisting of low calorie foods that are both nutritious and yummy. Once again, if the foods you are eating don’t taste great as well as being nutritious, you will be unlikely to stick with them over the long haul.

Crockpot recipes are virtually perfect because almost all are comprised of natural and organic components low in fat. Crockpots do not like fat, and most slow cooked meals begin and end with fresh produce and lean meats. All of our recipes are free from the further-processed ingredients, flavorings, tenderizers, and chemical additives that characterize most meals.

As a result, they are generally both lower in calories and more nutritious than fast-cooked meals. Except in very rare instances, all our recipes contain less than 400 calories per serving, and when you are taking a natural appetite suppressant you will seldom be inclined to eat more than one serving.

Regular Exercise

The benefits of regular exercise are well known, and it’s not the purpose of this website to promote any particular exercise regimen. The frequency and intensity of your exercise program should be tailored to your own age and health, but once again it is best to avoid being too aggressive and to keep your thinking long term. For best results, your daily exercise, just like your daily diet, should be something you look to rather than something you dread.
