Here is the story as it appeared in the Gazette online, 7/15/13, and in hardcopy, 7/16/13:
University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC)’s study involving Isagenix products has now been published in a second high-profile, peer-reviewed publication, Nutrition Journal. The new article includes magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans of a subject before and after use of Isagenix products.
The MRI scans serve to provide visual evidence of visceral fat reduction in the subject in the Isagenix group during the 30-day study. MRI scans use radio waves to scan the body and then produce cross-sectional pictures showing the internal structures of the body.
The figures in this publication include before (figure A) and after (figure B) cross-sectional abdominal scans of a subject who was in the Isagenix group of the study. When viewed side by side, there is a noticeable decrease in visceral fat—the fat that surrounds the internal organs—in figure B compared to figure A (the white area within the outlined section). On average, the MRI scans showed that subjects in the group taking Isagenix products lost two times as much visceral fat as those who followed a “heart-healthy” diet in the study. A slight decrease in subcutaneous fat—the thick white outer layer outside of the outlined section—can also be seen when comparing the before and after images.
The publication further supports the credibility of the research conducted by the lead study author, Krista Varady, Ph.D., and her colleagues from UIC. Previously, the research that compared the Isagenix system to a well-recognized “heart-healthy” diet plan was published in the equally prestigious Nutrition & Metabolism journal and highlighted the positive effects the Isagenix system had on cardiovascular risk factors.
While the data are taken from the same intervention, the new publication takes a slightly different look at the results by focusing on the effect of intermittent fasting with calorie restriction on weight loss, fat loss, and visceral fat loss in obese women. The study found that subjects on Isagenix products had greater reductions in body weight, visceral fat, and cardiovascular risk factors compared to those on a heart-healthy diet. In addition, those on the Isagenix products had a greater degree of adherence compared to those on the heart-healthy diet.

Do you realize that an average person spends 1 to 8 hours a day worrying!
We think about the past, the future, both of which are made-up stories which affect us physically, emotionally and spiritually.
Worrying is exhausting. One thought leads to another and the cycle never ends. We can become depressed, anxious or both.
Fortunately, worry can be minimized!
The first step is finding your triggers… Is it related to the past or to the future. We never worry in the present moment because in the NOW, there is no time for worry. We are paying attention to life as it is, not as we think it should have been or how we think it will be. So take a look, are you a worrier that has guilt, shame, or feels inadequate for something in the past? Or are you anxious for an event in the future, which you have no control over?
The second step is simply to let go. Find ways to reduce your worry and stress. Develop a personal stress strategy to bring your mind back into the NOW. One way to do this is to simply notice your pattern that has you stuck in the past or future, and bring your attention back to your breath. Try this…. Start thinking about something, really give it your all and leave nothing back. Consider an event which has you anxious or depressed for a moment with your full attention. Next, immediately pay attention your breath, simply follow it. Watch your inhales and exhales without trying to control them and without judgement or expectation. Simply notice them. Observer your mind’s desire to bring you back to the event you are worrying about. As this happens, let it go and keep bringing your attention back to your breath. Notice how it is impossible to both pay attention to breath and indulge thoughts of the past or future.
Your breath is your ally. Use it or some other technique to be in the NOW, and stop worrying!
