Excess Weight, Obesity and Metabolic Syndrome
"The multiple social, economic, and hereditary factors that contribute to obesity make treatment of the condition a potentially daunting prospect, particularly for the primary care physician with limited time available to spend with each patient."
Excess weight and obesity linked to Insulin Resistance are often
underlying causes of the cluster of cardiovascular risk factors
called Metabolic Syndrome (Syndrome X). This latter disorder can
lead to a heart attack or stroke.
Both men and women are vulnerable to developing Metabolic
Syndrome if they have at least three of the following
Excess abdominal fat – in men this means a 40 inch waist or
larger, in women 35 inches or larger
High blood sugar – at least 110 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL)
High triglyceride levels – at least 150 mg/dL in the blood
Low HDL "good" cholesterol – less than 40 mg/dL in men and 50
mg/dL in women.
Blood pressure of 130/85 or higher
Insulin Resistance underlies excess weight and obesity by vastly
reducing the number of receptor sites on the wall of each cell.
These sites act as "a key in a lock," allowing glucose to pass
through the cell wall and be converted to energy. But the
reduced number of receptor sites causes glucose, or sugar, to
"bounce" off the cell wall and then free-float in the blood
stream to the liver.
Once there, this excess glucose is converted into fat and stored
via the blood stream throughout the body. This process often
leads to obesity, a key factor in the onset of Metabolic
Syndrome, which can also increase the risk of blood clot
formation and reduce the kidneys' ability to remove salt from
the blood. Increased levels of insulin that also result from
Insulin Resistance can be a further source of damage to the
If left unchecked, Metabolic Syndrome places a person at higher
risk for a heart attack or stroke. The condition has also been
linked with the onset of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), a
leading cause of infertility in women, Pre-Diabetes and certain
cancers, such as prostate cancer in men.
At the present time, there is no single pill that will reverse
excess weight and obesity, just as there are no pharmaceutical
drugs that will heal Metabolic Syndrome. But there are ways to
address Insulin Resistance, which is often the underlying cause
of all these conditions.
If you wish to return to optimum health, you should consider a
system that combines nutraceuticals (vitamins, herbs and
minerals that are disease-specific), a realistic exercise
program, nutritional guidance and a support system that will
help you change unhealthy lifestyle choices.
Click here to read about the unique new Insulite System for Excess Weight
and Obesity, which can help reverse Insulin Resistance, often
an underlying cause of weight gain leading to the onset of
Metabolic Syndrome. One of the system's formulations, called
RejuvenX, promotes weight loss with CoQ10, which can reverse
imbalances in glucose and insulin levels brought on by
"I have been on the Insulite
System for approx 3 months. I have lost 33 lbs, my liver
functions are normal and my A1C came back at 5.1, down from 8.03 months ago. I
was taking 10 Glucovance pills daily, now I take only 2 pills in the
AM. My blood sugar is normal, my energy is higher than it has been in
years and I feel great. Insulite along with a change in my diet has
changed my life.
I tell everyone that asks me what I have done to change my life, about the Insulite program.
Your product is fantastic. I have
cut out all sweets, flour, dairy and have no cravings."

"In less than 3 weeks I've started losing
weight again after being
"stuck" on Weight Watchers for about a year. I've lost about 4
starting Insulite but more significantly my blood pressure is
well within normal limits now and I can tell my metabolism is
better. I am not getting that slump between meals and am able to control
between-meal snacking, and I have a lot of energy throughout the day rather
than periods where I need to nap. I just ordered the 6 months
supply. Thank you!"
"Obesity is no longer an American disease. Globalization's bounty—economic development, lowered trade costs, and rising incomes—has turned it into a worldwide pandemic for rich and poor alike. If it's left unchecked, the economic health of developing countries will surely be crushed under the weight."
"I cannot believe the difference
the Insulite System has made in how I feel. My appetite has
changed tremendously. I do not crave carbs and sugar and my
appetite is somewhat diminished."
"There is a clear and consistent scientific literature showing pervasive bias against overweight people. It is logical that the bias begets discrimination. There is now sufficient evidence of discrimination to suggest it may be powerful and occurs across important areas of living.
Studies on employment have shown hiring prejudice in laboratory studies. Subjects report being less inclined to hire an overweight person than a thin person, even with identical qualifications. Individuals make negative inferences about obese persons in the workplace, feeling that such people are lazy, lack self-discipline, and are less competent. One might expect these attributions to affect wages, promotions, and disciplinary actions, and such seems to be the case.
Overweight women, for the same work, receive less pay than their thin counterparts. This does not seem to be the case for men, but overweight men sort themselves into lower-level jobs. There is evidence that promotion prospects are dimmer for overweight individuals, and there are many examples of people being fired on account of excess weight."
"I wanted to let you know how much I
appreciate your caring advice and guiding me towards taking control of my health.
It's hard to express in
words how long I have been trying to find the answers you have so easily
provided for me.
I am so excited about the positive changes in my health and I
can't wait to see where I am six months from now, yet alone the year. Thank

"Middle-age people who are overweight but have normal blood pressure and cholesterol levels are kidding themselves if they think their health is just fine."
"Northwestern University researchers tracked 17,643 patients for three decades and found that being overweight in mid-life substantially increased the risk of dying of heart disease later in life even in people who began the study with healthy blood pressure and cholesterol levels."
"Thank you so much for putting me on
the right road!"
"Simply losing 5-7% of your body fat (typically 10-15 pounds) and increasing your physical activity by taking a brisk walk 4-5 times a week can reduce your risk of developing Type
II Diabetes by almost 60%."
"The United States is experiencing an epidemic of obesity. Thirty-four percent of adults are overweight and an additional 30% are obese. Thus, 2 of every 3 Americans have an unhealthy body weight. Obesity contributes to over 300,000 deaths per year, principally through its association with cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and several cancers. Obesity currently is the second leading cause of preventable death and will soon surpass cigarette smoking, the leading cause. Health economists estimate that obesity costs our nation approximately $100 billion a year. And these figures say nothing about the personal suffering of those affected by obesity."
"I started your product and found
it really boosts my system,
helping me get off ground zero, and stop the spiral downwards.
It gave me the
energy to start exercising and prepare healthy meals.
You are all very supportive, even though I am on the other side
of the world
(Australia). I am very glad that I am on your product, your
are also very encouraging, when I am finding things a bit
harder. Thank you for everything."
