Nutrit Meal Replacement To Start Crowdsource Campaign

We are pleased to announce that Nutrit Meal Replacement is starting a Crowdtilt Campaign for its initial production run.

On the heals of the successful campaign for Soylent, Nutrit promises a meal replacement product that has been totally reimagined. Nutrit provides a complete days nutrition while helping a person avoid processed ingredients, soy, wheat, dairy, GMOs, and Dairy. Nutrit is made up of organic proteins and fats, flavored with organic cocoa. Nutrit costs less than fast food, is easier to make than instant noodles, and tastes similar to chocolate milk.

Meal replacement as an idea is a sound one. In a fast paced society, its hard to avoid problem ingredients and at the same time get the nutrition one requires to stay healthy. Its all too easy, in a pinch, to reach for something in a vending machine or fall back on take out food. To date, meal replacement products and protein concoctions offer an unmeasured nutrient value, and mostly contain ingredients that can cause inflammation. Nutrit has solved those problems by being an easy mix powder, that offers an organic, non-GMO ingredient list that mirrors RDA requirements.

Nutrits Crowdtilt campaign is primarily being undertaken to provide funds to meet our vendors initial minimum order quantities. The merits of this product stand on there own, and we feel it is important to get it out there. Nutrit can help the average person avoid problem ingredients, and control calorie intake, all while getting more complete nutrition than is afforded by a standard diet.

Only with your help can we bring this truly novel product to market and the world.

A New Quiz to Check Your Low-Carb IQ

The rising popularity of Atkins-approved menus and other low-carbohydrate products shows that ‘low-carb’ has become the new ‘health’ and ‘fat-free’ label. Millions of carb-aware dieters are cutting back on carbohydrates as a way of eating a more balanced diet. A new low-carb quiz complements this theme, helping oldies and newbies to learn more about their low-carb habits. The quiz helps dieters find out if they are making the best choices with vegetables, fish, eggs, and poultry, focusing on the role of protein, fat, and carbohydrates in our diet.

Carbohydrates are important for the proper working of the immune, digestive, and nervous systems, the heart, and the brain. A form of carbohydrate, fiber keeps the intestines clean and disease-free and is essential for the elimination of toxins and other waste materials from the body. Soluble forms of fiber help the body maintain steady glucose levels in the blood and slow digestion. Moreover, the carbohydrates fructose and glucose are responsible for breaking down certain proteins like those that protect the eyes against cataract formation.

If carbohydrates are so important for good health, why exclude them from your menu while on a diet? The new quiz brings to a focus diets such as the Zone diet and Atkins diet and addresses important questions about low-carb dieting and its effects on health. Low-carb diets have been promoted as a healthy and effective approach to weight reduction. A new study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, for example, showed that obese and overweight people who took a protein supplement and reduced the amount of sugar in their diet experienced a significant drop in their blood pressure. Other benefits associated with low-carb diets include improved insulin sensitivity and lower insulin levels, improved triglycerides, reduced blood glucose, and others.

There have been concerns that diets like the Atkins and Zone diet are bad for the heart. Dieters who cut down on carbohydrates – starches and sugars – eat more foods that are rich in fat. This has been said to have a harmful effect on cardiovascular health. Researchers at Johns Hopkins University found that low-carb diets have the opposite effect and help improve blood vessel health.

Many low-carb dieters are also concerned about the effects of ketosis, which increases the level of ketone bodies in the human body. An important question the quiz asks deals with ketosis and the indicators of ketosis having occurred. Are the symptoms of ketosis something to worry about? In fact, scientific studies have shown that ketosis produces some health benefits. It has mood-stabilizing properties and neuroprotective properties and helps improve glucose control in diabetics. Diabetics who follow a ketogenic diet show a considerable improvement in glycemic control, resulting in medication elimination or reduction. Scientists also believe that ketone bodies are an efficient fuel for the brain, offering protection against brain damage. Moreover, studies show that ketogenic diets lower food intake and reduce hunger more than non-ketogenic diets. While prolonged and extreme ketosis is dangerous, moderate or mild ketosis has been shown to produce health benefits.

The new quiz http://www.lowcarbfoods.org/low-carb-foods-quiz.php itself is a helpful tool for dieters who want to assess their eating style, learn more about foods allowed on a diet, and try different dietary plans such as the Zone diet and Atkins diet. The quiz engages in the debate on low-carb dieting and its effects on diabetics and looks at metabolism and ways to boost metabolism. By testing dieters’ knowledge of low-carb diets and lifestyle, the quiz helps them to find a plan that is the best fit for them.

Lighterlife Clients Shed Weight In 2008

LighterLife, the weight-loss and weight-management programme for people who are one stone or more overweight, has announced that it has helped the UK shed almost 94,000 stone in just one year.

Up and down the country, LighterLife clients have lost an amazing 93,719 stone – that is the equivalent weight to 30 of the 32 pods on the London Eye and one and a half Angel of the North bronze statues.

In just 12 months LighterLife has shown clients how to lose weight and change their lives beyond recognition and many have gone from struggling to walk or run to taking part in cycle rides, running marathons, climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, taking up dance classes, holidaying abroad for the first time, changing careers or simply just playing with their children.

Sara Jamison, Sales and Marketing Director, LighterLife commented: “Every day we receive so many inspirational stories from clients who have a new lease of life after losing weight on the LighterLife Programme. All of our clients have their own unique weight-loss journey whether they have one stone or 15 stone to lose. Not only do our clients benefit physically from their weight loss but also emotionally and the counselling techniques we offer them show them the reason behind their overeating and teach them how they keep the weight off in the future.”

She continued, “With the introduction of the new LighterLife Lite Programme which is available to those people who are one stone or more overweight, we will be able to reach people before they tip into the obesity danger zone and help even more people across the country lose weight fast and manage their healthy weight in the future.”

About LighterLife:

Founded in 1996, the LighterLife Programme was developed by three of its directors – Jackie Cox, Bar Hewlett and Rebecca Hunter.

Lighterlife Has Conducted A Survey That Reveals The Shocking Scale Of Abuse Suffered By Overweight Britons

LighterLife, the UK weight loss specialist, has conducted a survey of 1000 adults that reveals the full scale of abuse suffered by overweight or obese Britons.

According to the survey, nine out of ten overweight people in Britain have been called a derogatory name about their weight, and yet many who insult others are overweight or obese themselves. While 46% of people admit to having called, referred to or thought of an overweight person by a derogatory name because of their weight, the percentage of bullies who are overweight themselves is surprisingly high, with 33% of obese or very obese respondents admitting to insulting other overweight people.

When it comes to insulting friends and relatives, men are the cruelest, with 28 per cent of men – nearly a third – admitting to insulting overweight friends, whereas many more women are restrained, with just 11% levelling abuse at overweight people they know. The problem reduces with age however; 29 per cent of 16-24-year-olds will call a friend or relative a derogatory name, whereas only 12 per cent of 55-64-year-olds will do this.

Where someone lives is likely to determine how much abuse they get too. For example, 30% of Londoners would call a friend or relative a derogatory name, while only 15% of Scots would do the same.

The survey from LighterLife has concerned many in the weight management industry, stressing that people need encouragement to go on weight loss diets, not abuse.

Mandy Cassidy, a psychotherapist with LighterLife, said: “It’s sad that adults now find such behaviour acceptable, and particularly so among the younger age groups, as they could well carry through these views as they get older, thus increasing the problem even further.”

People can appear to shrug off comments, she added, but inside, they can be devastated:“Often it is only through counselling that the full impact become clear – many of our clients have resorted to avoiding social occasions and decline invitations.

“Even some people who appear totally confident say that they become ‘really good liars’ and concoct a range of excuses for not attending events – which can drive them indoors, to eat as a way of dealing with their hurt and anger, which compounds the problem.

“Just because someone is overweight, it doesn’t mean it’s acceptable to insult them. This type of prejudice isn’t tolerated in any other walk of life – so we shouldn’t allow it here?”

Dr Ian W Campbell, Hon. Medical Director of charity Weight Concern, said: “These findings are very concerning. People who have a weight problem need support, encouragement and advice on how to lose weight, not ridicule.

“Many already have underlying psychological and self-esteem issues and this type of behaviour can only serve to make matters worse and cause a great deal of distress.

“Few people want to be very overweight and would love to be able to change. That process needs support, not criticism; it needs incentive, not punishment.”

About LighterLife:
LighterLife is a weight loss management programme for people who are clinically obese, equivalent to three stone or more overweight and with a body mass index greater than 29.

The unique LighterLife approach combines low-calorie diets in the form of nutritionally complete soups, shakes and bars, with specialised counselling using cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and transactional analysis (TA) techniques. Clients benefit not only from safe, fast weight loss but they also learn the behavioural change needed to sustain it.

Founded in 1996, the LighterLife Programme was developed by three of its directors – Jackie Cox, Bar Hewlett and Rebecca Hunter.
