Excess Weight, Obesity and Metabolic Syndrome (Syndrome X)

Serious looking medical doctor.
"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."
Louis J. Aronne, Classification of Obesity and Assessment of Obesity-Related Health Risks, Obesity Research 10:105S-115S (2002)
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 symptoms:
  • 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 stream
  • 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 cardiovascular system.

Excess Weight and Metabolic Syndrome 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 Insulin Resistance.

"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 lbs since 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."
Rebecca Puhl and Kelly D. Brownell, Bias, Discrimination, and Obesity, Obesity Research 9:788-805 (2001)
"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 you again!"

"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."
Obesity may be an independent risk factor for heart problems, MSNBC

"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 Insulite System

Article by Dr. Sheri Colberg, Phd, FACSM

"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."
Testimony of the North American Association for the Study of Obesity (NAASO) before the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Government Reform, Subcommittee on Human Rights and Wellness, 9.15.2004 (.PDF)

"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 weekly messages are also very encouraging, when I am finding things a bit harder. Thank you for everything."
