Intelligent Guide to Weight Management

Americans and Canadians spend more than $35 billion a year trying to lose weight and are getting heavier. The U.S. National Center for Health Statistics reported that the number of overweight American adults increased by 31 percent during the 1980s and further increased in the 90s.  About half the adults in Canada and the USA are overweight. Weight related diseases, especially blood vessel disease, diabetes 2 will be the most common cause of disability and early death  in the 21st century unless this weight trend is reversed.

The goal is not really weight loss.

The goal is to become a healthier, leaner person and stay that way.

We encourage everyone with weight problems to give diet revision a try. Learn about the Alpha Nutrition Program, a detailed diet revision plan that can help you. In a modern context with an abundance of food, eating is immediately gratifying but can produce dysfunction and disease as a delayed consequence. Several diseases that lead to premature disability and death are caused by eating too much of the wrong food and exercising too little.

The second truth is that normal is not normal. The foods implicated in causing illnesses are common foods that almost everyone eats. Whenever foods are abundant, humans each too much and become ill.  Whenever alcoholic beverages replace water, humans drink too much and become intoxicated.  A common hedonistic attitude explains that eating and drinking in excess are essential components of celebration. Anyone who objects spoils the party. The ancient Greeks divided Philosophy into a Apollonian school that championed, health, rational thinking and civic responsibility and a Dionysian school that championed celebration, overeating, eroticism and fun.

If weight regulation is going to be successful, it must be spontaneous.

There are no legitimate products on the market that cause or aid weight loss. There are no machines that magically remove cellulite, fat or replace legitimate exercise. Misleading journalism and unregulated product promotion combine with  fraud to dominate the public perception of weight loss. Unfortunately, a sufficient number of overweight people appear to be gullible enough  to keep this wasteful and misleading weight loss industry going. Weight loss products and claims appear to be out of control as regulatory agencies in the USA and Canada only made token attempts to stop fraud. 

Alpha Nutrition Program Ideas

We have some good ideas about weight management. All require intelligent understanding , planning and discipline. If you are overweight, unwell and developing some pretty serious diseases, you have to stop and change directions. Constructive change is hard to implement and we know many of the reasons why people fail.  No quick fixes here.

If weight regulation is going to be successful, it must be spontaneous. The regulation of appetite and metabolism is the responsibility of automatic programs built into your body. These programs follow ancient principles of biological design.  One strategy to solve compulsive eating and lose weight  is to have a food holiday. You stop all food input, go through a quick withdrawal, clear symptoms and have a fresh start on solving eating problems. Food can be replaced by an elemental nutrient formula  that has high nutrient density, is easy to use, is quickly-absorbed and is free of food problems. Alpha ENF, supplies complete nutrition while you rest and recover.
