Eating & Weight Nutritional Rescue
No one should claim that weight loss is easy, but weight management can be pursued in a rational manner with an expectation of success. First, you have to understand that the goal is not really weight loss. The goal is to become a smaller, leaner person and stay that way. The key phrase is "stay that way".
The failure of weight loss program is mostly that people who lose some weight do not stay that way. Weight loss strategy needs to be focused on how to stay at a lower body weight. Clearly, something has to change forever. A permanent change in food selection and eating behaviors is required for a permanent change in body weight.
We like to think that successful weight management is a natural by-product of new healthy habits. A healthy lifestyle means that you feel and act well, you eat well, you exercise, stay in shape, and seek mind-body balance. Proper diet and exercise are essential to health. Weight management can be pursued with every expectation of success.
Solving eating and weight problems involves four steps:
We think of trigger foods as the "bad guys"; these foods and drinks cause symptoms and at the same time trigger cravings and compulsive eating or drinking. The term "addictive food allergy" was suggested to describe the connection between compulsive eating and illness. You have to stop eating these foods to re-gain control and to recover from any illness they cause. In the worse case, these foods are addictive and if you eat them again your cravings are triggered and you lose control. If we apply insights into this addiction process, we can arrive at some effective strategies to cope with cravings and compulsive eating.
Life is not always a neat, rational affair. Any effort to control eating and drinking behaviors pushes against many powerful forces that resist change. Some of these forces are internal body workings. Other forces are external circumstances, habits, customs, and addictions. Irrational elements enter into the equation and way-lay the best laid plans. Among our patients, there is a consensus that eating-control is difficult to achieve, even when wrong food choices involve serious illness. The consensus is also that some foods trigger compulsive eating, uncontrollable by ordinary acts of consciousness. The tow book in this starter pack discuss all the issues ofgaining control of your food selection and eating behaviors. This is serious study designed for the intelligent reader how wants to push pass all the nonsense, fraudulent marketing and wishful thinking that dominates discussion of eating and weight issues.
You can learn rational weight management by using the Alpha Nutrition Program. The program is designed to resolve food-related symptoms and to restore more normal appetite regulation. Most people with weight issues do not feel well and many are developing diseases such as diabetes and atherosclerosis. We start with the assumption that the foods that disturb weight regulation are also creating illness at some level. The illness may be low-grade and may be ignored for a number of years. Or the illness may be obvious, but is not clearly connected with the food. Illness and weight gain go together just as renewed good health goes together with weight loss.
One option of Alpha Nutrition is to retreat to an elemental formula, Alpha ENF, and basic foods to clear symptoms and food cravings.
One of our overweight, compulsive-eating patients stated: "I think there is a little gizmo in my brain that isn't working properly". She was right. You generally cannot win a battle against a defective weight-regulating gizmo by having good intentions or thinking good thoughts. You must have a biological strategy that gets the gizmo working again.

The Value of Alpha ENF - Elemental Nutrient Formulas
Alpha ENF is different from other formulas sold for weight loss purposes. The chief advantages of Alpha ENF are:
At 1000 calories/day of Alpha ENF all vitamins and minerals are provided at or above the recommended daily intake. If you follow the fast track on Alpha Nutrition you will take 4 to 5 servings of Alpha ENF per day - approximately 800 calories. The formula is designed to provide adequate vitamins and minerals with reduced calories. The food you eat in addition to Alpha ENF, completes the nutrient set, so that at total intake of 1000 - 1500 calories per day, all essential nutrients are generously provided.
