The Miracle Cure!

A weekly message to strengthen your CORE and develop your resolve. 
July 17, 2013
Were you shocked to see my subject line for this newsletter! Could it be The REAL Skinny promoting a quick fix! Never!! (But tell me… did you secretly wish it were true??)
My email was hacked this past week and a million of my closest friends, clients, and family received an email with a link to buy a weight loss product. Ouch! An even bigger kicker was the link in the email took you to a video where Dr Oz was promoting the product… Double Ouch!
I received so many emails back from people wondering what was up. Some asked should they really try it, some were happy to hear from me after so long, some had already tried it and it didn’t work, most were just confused and wondered what the real skinny was up with the email!

Just to set the record straight, I have never endorsed products or brands, nor will I ever. It’s not that I don’t think some products or supplements aren’t beneficial, its just that anything you take or do has to be evaluated on your own individual needs, not on mass sales appeal. I also am very cautious about new miracle products on the market because they are not adequately tested. Most of the marketing and appeal to these products is reaching deep into our feelings of desperation and desire for a quick fix.

Recently, I was speaking with someone who has lost weight and is now taking vitamin and mineral supplements. Not just a vitamin and mineral supplement, but mass doses. He was actually taking 2,000mg of vitamin C (RDA is 60mg) a day in supplement form among other things. When I asked why, he stated to prevent colds, infections, help his immune system, and I don’t know, it just seems like a good idea. Since I’ve lost weight I just want to get as healthy as possible. He had no idea of the complications and side effects of taking such a high dose of vitamin C until I explained it to him.

More is not better. Miracle weight loss is not out there. It’s a crazy unbalanced world… stay centered. Trust yourself. Common Sense, Moderation, Variety, and Balance still reign supreme!
