It’s A Problem
Obesity is on the rise. Or bulge. Whatever. Look at these stats:
Don’t Risk It
The problem with carrying jiggly fat reserves on your thighs, belly, and arms isn’t just about looking great and fitting into your skinny jeans. Being overweight drives up your medical bills and increases your risk for gallstones, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, sleep apnea, and stroke.
How to Lose Weight
What can you do to get your body back and be healthier? Try a good diet supplement, eat smart, and stay active. The best weight loss aids have ingredients that help you slim down naturally.
Raspberry Ketones help burn fat, and also help sugars and fats pass through your system without being absorbed and stored as they normally would. They moderate the hormone adiponectin so your fat cells shrink.

hCG Hormone-Free Diet Drops contain herbal extracts and powerful aminos to support your diet as you eat 500, 800, or 12oo calories and fol-low the Four Phases of Dr. Simeons’ famous protocol. Glutamine, Argi-nine, Carnitine, Maca, and Rhodiola maximize your weight loss results.

Grape Skin Extract (resveratrol) is thought to be responsible for the “French paradox”--the French eat a high-fat diet, yet they have a lower rate of heart disease than Americans. The resveratrol in red wine appears to offset the high-fat diet, because it releases the fat-moderating hormone adiponectin, which controls cellular fat levels.

Maqui Berry is an antioxidant that blocks fat formation through the ac-tion of phenolic extracts. The berry grows in Chile and also has cardioprotective qualities.

Green Tea Extract is high in catechins and polyphenols which help to re-duce visceral fat, including abdominal fat. It also contains caffeine, which boosts energy levels to support successful weight loss.
