Lose Weight With Healthy Chocolate Diet?

Down 2.75 inches in week 1! Go Bob!

Ok.  I LOVE the Xocai Healthy Chocolate Diet & Wellness Plan!  Stacie McCune is helping Bob with his weight loss journey.  In his first week, he lost 2.5 pounds and 2.75 inches!  He is deflating!

Remember that one of the things that makes this plan work better than anything else out there is that it deals with the inflammation in your body.  One serving of the shake was shown to reduce the NF-KB, or inflammation at the cellular level, by 34%!  It also activates your “skinny gene” (SIRT1) by 15%.

No wonder!

Call me if you are ready to lose your weight once and for all!  We’ll see if the Xocai Healthy Chocolate Diet & Wellness Plan is right for you.  If you think inflammation has anything to do with why you can’t lose the weight, you are probably right!

Take the Healthy Chocolate Challenge” is based on a new study that has comprehensively shown that a high-antioxidant diet, particularly one featuring unprocessed cocoa, can effectively help promote healthy weight loss.  This study, which found that overweight or obese individuals who consumed an antioxidant-rich, raw-cocoa based meal-replacement shake over a twelve-week span were able to lose significant weight, was published in the December, 2011 issue (vol. 26, no. 2) of the American Journal of Bariatric Medicine.

There will be three guest speakers at the Weight Loss Symposium.  One will be Dr. Gordon Pedersen, who will be speaking on the missing link in other weight loss plans- they do not incorporate chocolate into the diet, as well as the importance of polyphenols, a compound in unprocessed cocoa, in a weight loss program.  Another guest speaker will be Dr. Machiel “Mike” Kennedy, one of the doctors who oversaw the weight loss study, will explain why an important medical journal published the study on the Xocai Healthy Chocolate Diet.   The other guest speaker will be Jeanette Brooks, founder and president of MXI/Xocai Healthy Chocolate, who will share her own weight loss journey of losing 120 pounds and keeping it off, as well as how the Xocai Healthy Chocolate Diet & Wellness System works.

Among the study findings:

➤      The average weight loss per participant was 31.3 pounds.

➤      The average decrease in waist circumference was 5.8 inches.

➤      None of the participants experienced any ill health from the program.

➤      None of the 50 participants who started the study dropped out of the program.

Take the Healthy Chocolate Challenge- Lose 20 Pounds (or More) in 12 Weeks with Xocai Healthy Chocolate Diet

Stacie lost 35 pounds in 12 weeks on the "More Than 20" plan!

Stacie McCune, Tricia Holder and I met with several people one-on-one yesterday who were interested in Take the Healthy Chocolate Challenge.  They all decided to go for it!

One gentleman would like to lose 50 pounds.  He used to be extremely fit, but after an injury many years ago, he wasn’t able to exercise like he used to.  He has struggled with his weight for years at this point.  He can lose weight, but it just comes right back on, plus some.  He identified with Stacie’s story of yo-yo dieting and really understanding that the first three letters of diet are “d-i-e.”  He was always hungry and learned how to cheat on programs like Weight Watchers.  He is excited to start on the Xocai Healthy Chocolate Diet & Wellness System– “More than 20″ plan, not only because of the weight he wants to lose, but also because he wants to fight the inflammation in his body.   We are excited to work with him to hit his goals!

The next person to meet with us is a woman who doesn’t look overweight to me.  However, she is 20 pounds heavier than her goal weight.  Over the years, her top weight has gradually crept up a bit.  Now she is ready to stop that cycle.  It was interesting to me to hear Stacie McCune discuss this with her.  Stacie told her that she wished she had gotten her weight under control when she had only put on 20 pounds.  If she had, then she never would have gotten overweight and had to hide from all of her friends she knew when she was thin.  This woman we met with is on the Xocai Healthy Chocolate Diet & Wellness Plan to lose 20 pounds in 12 weeks.  Very do-able!

The next person we met with used to be very thin as well.  Several years ago, she was put on a medication that has a major side effect of making you gain weight.  She was very frustrated and very ready for help!  She overheard Tricia talking to a doctor about our “Take the Healthy Chocolate Challenge” system and came to learn more.  She is excited to have a system to follow and a support team that really cares about her to go on her weight loss journey with her.  She is also very excited about the science that shows that our high antioxidant cocoa meal replacement was shown to reduce inflammation because she is feeling the effects of inflammation badly.   Her goal is to lose 100 pounds.  Her budget will put her on the 20 pounds in 12 weeks plan instead of the “More than 20” plan, so her weight loss may take a little longer but we will work with her to lose it and keep it off!

I LOVE the program called “Take the Healthy Chocolate Challenge”- Lose 20 Pounds in 12 Weeks!  It gives people a track to run on – they choose if they want to shoot for losing 20 pounds or more than 20 pounds.   The support team of people who really care about them hitting their individual goals comes with the deal!

That is just the beginning!  We still have a couple of appointments available next Thursday, December 29th if you know anyone interested in learning more!

Xocai Healthy Chocolate Diet & Wellness System- High Antioxidant Cocoa Meal Replacement

Experimenting to Lose the last 6 pounds

I started an experiment!   I just bought a scale for the first time in a decade.  I never really liked scales.  They can become an object of obsession too easily.  But I did it.

What’s the experiment?  See if I can lose the last 6 pounds that have plagued me since I have had 3 children (they are all teenagers- so it’s about time!).  The real test?  Do it DURING the holidays!  I started a week ago.

I have been drinking one Xocai High Antioxidant Cocoa Meal Replacement Shakes daily for breakfast for almost a year.  I have trimmed down tremendously just from that.

Now, I have added one High Antioxidant Cocoa Meal Replacement Cookie for lunch.  I lost 1 1/2 pounds last week!  I see the little curve in my waist that I forgot about!

Yes, I have also stepped up my exercise program too.  But the great thing is- I never get hungry.  I have a Healthy Chocolate shake for breakfast, a healthy snack mid-morning, a Healthy Chocolate cookie for lunch, one or two healthy snacks during the afternoon (depending on how late I eat dinner), then a sensible dinner.  Oh- also, I am limiting my alcohol to the ONE glass of wine at night.

Easiest 1 1/2 pounds to ever come off.  Can’t wait for the last 4 1/2 pounds.  Who thought losing weight could be FUN?  Yes, the Chocolate is mandatory!

High Antioxidant Cocoa Meal Replacement- Weight, Inches & Cholesterol (down 26 points in 3 weeks) All Dropping

Xocai High Antioxidant Cocoa Meal Replacement Works!

You may have heard Stacie McCune’s story.  (If not, click here to learn more.)  After trying every diet ever invented, she found success by using the Xocai High Antioxidant Cocoa Meal Replacement.  She lost 55 pounds, 44 total inches and now coaches others to do the same.

Here is a quick success story of someone she is coaching (Gwen) who is using the Xocai Healthy Chocolate Diet with Stacie as her guide.

Gwen has only been using one Xocai High Antioxidant Cocoa Meal Replacement daily for 3 weeks.  She has lost 4 pounds, 1.5 inches around her middle and her cholesterol has dropped 26 points.  This is always the question: What else has she done differently?  NOTHING!

It is so interesting to me that she has lost 1.5 inches with only 4 pounds (not that 4 pounds is not something to celebrate!)- this gets to the really important thing about this Healthy Chocolate Diet.  It is not a diet.  It is about packing your body with antioxidants only found in chocolate (!) that reduce the the inflammation in your body to help it get healthy.  One serving of this Healthy Chocolate Shake was shown to reduce inflammation at the cellular level by 34%.

Now we’re talkin’!  Let’s Get Healthy Atlanta!  Let’s Get Healthy Georgia!

Want more information about the Healthy Chocolate Diet?  My contact information is below.  I’ll put you in touch with Stacie.

Stacie McCune Shares About the High Antioxidant Cocoa Meal Replacement

Stacie McCune tells tells about her journey of weight loss with Healthy Chocolate.  She was the ultimate Yo-yo dieter, losing weight with every diet and then gaining it back, plus some.  And she was ALWAYS hungry and grumpy.  Does that sound like you?

When Stacie heard about the Healthy Chocolate Diet, she knew she had to give it a try.  After losing about 20 pounds, she had an “Aha Moment” that the High Antioxidant Cocoa Meal Replacement was different from anything else she had ever tried.  Her husband came home from work one day and said, “Stacie, I have known you for 17 years and I have never seen you this happy.  I want to feel the way YOU feel!”

Have you EVER had someone say that while you are on a wellness plan?  There is a reason the first 3 letters of DIET are DIE!  You always feel like you are going to DIE of hunger and grumpiness.

This High Antioxidant Chocolate Meal Replacement, made with Xocai Healthy Chocolate, makes you feel good – after all – it’s CHOCOLATE!

Want to talk to Stacie to hear about it yourself?  Call me and I will connect you.

Weight Loss Study Using a High Antioxidant Cocoa Meal Replacement and Lifestyle Intervention

Get ready for the excitement!  Something that Xocai representatives have known from personal stories of people on our products, is going to be hitting the news very soon.  Our Healthy Chocolate works for weight loss!  I call it the Healthy Chocolate Diet!

The American Journal of Bariatric (weight loss) Medicine is going to publish an article in its final 2011 publication about the Lifestyle Study that was completed on our High Antioxidant Cocoa Meal Replacement.

What is so special about this study?  First of all, 50 people started the study and 50 people finished it.  That NEVER happens!  100% retention in a study is unheard of.  Over a 12 week period, the average weight loss was 31.3 pounds with an average reduction in waist circumference of 5.8 inches.  Yes, in 12 weeks!!!!  That is HUGE!

Xocai High Antioxidant Cocoa Meal Replacement Works!

In addition, the percentage weight loss ranged from 6.6% – 24.6% of starting weight.  There is NO weight loss “medicine” out there that can begin to compete with those results.

Finally – and actually the most exciting part to me – is that a single serving of the meal replacement stimulates SIRT1 by approximately 15% and inhibits NF-kB by 34% and the benefits are expected to show to be cumulative with regular daily consumption of the meal replacement.  What this means is that this Xocai High Antioxidant Cocoa Meal Replacement fights the inflammation in your body in a very significant way.

Inflammation, according to at 2010 article from MD Anderson Cancer Center, is the root of the development of many cancers. “Lifestyle plays a major role in the development of cancer.  The important lifestyle factors that affect the incidence and mortality of cancer include tobacco, alcohol, diet, obesity, infectious agents, environmental pollutants, and radiation.  All of these risk factors are linked to each other through inflammation.

I believe that EVERYONE should be consuming one High Antioxidant Cocoa Meal Replacement shake a day to reduce their inflammation – even if they don’t want to lose weight!

As you start setting your weight loss New Year’s Resolutions, let me know if you want to lose your weight for good and keep it off.

Dr Gordan Pedersen Takes Xocai Healthy Chocolate to Atlanta

Dr. Gordan Pedersen Shares Health Benefits of Cocoa in Atlanta

Dr. Gordan Pedersen, Vice President of Education with MXI Corp, and Wade Erickson, a leader in the company, came to Atlanta, GA to share the health benefits of the most potent antioxidant on the planet, cocoa.  There is so much research on cocoa, it can be overwhelming.  Dr. Pedersen helped everyone to understand the science behind many of the health benefits that we hear about.

Dr. Pedersen also announced the new Xocai Meal Replacement Bar/Cookie in this presentation.  This bar/cookie is the perfect nutrition profile for people who want to use it to supplement their weight loss or build lean tissue mass, as well as for those on-the-go days when you need a meal to take with you instead of driving through a fast-food restaurant.  I am excited for our teenagers to eat it after school, before their sports.  It is the perfect combination with the Xocai High Antioxidant Protein Shake for the Xocai Wellness Plan, sometimes referred to as the “Chocolate Diet.”

Wade Erickson shared information about all of the other Xocai products that include products with probiotics, omega-3s, and a healthy energy drink.  He also explained that our team is looking for people who would like to help expand the distribution network of Healthy Chocolate in Atlanta, the U.S. and worldwide.
