3 Week Diet

The 3 Week Diet

NEW YORK, NY / October 6, 2016 – Dieters frustrated with typical diets that either don’t work or that produce minimal weight loss now have another choice — a revolutionary program that guarantees weight loss of 12-23 pounds in just three weeks.

The program, which is being called “The 3 Week Diet,” was developed by Brian Flatt, an experienced nutritionist and personal trainer from Southern California. He says he created the program as a solution “to all of those ‘mainstream’ diet programs which are time-consuming, inefficient and just plain ineffective.”

“After reading well over 500 medical studies, dozens of diet books and reviewing hundreds of diet systems, programs, gadgets, pills and potions, I have put together what I feel is the ultimate rapid weight loss diet system,” Flatt said. “This program is the result of more than a decade of research and more than two and a half years of real-world tweaking and testing.”

One big difference between this program and other diets is its focus on cellular inflammation, Flatt indicated.

According to Flatt, cellular inflammation is the real cause of weight gain, yet most diets ignore that fact.

“If we take control of cellular inflammation, we can effectively increase our ability to lose weight, burn fat, increase metabolism and keep body fat from ever coming back,” Flatt said.

His 3 Week Diet also:

Focuses on correcting the bad information dieters receive
Avoids counting calories or the “eat less – exercise more” mantra that the medical community has been pushing for decades
Gives dieters an easy to follow, step-by-step plan of action
Produces quick results so dieters don’t get discouraged and continue jumping from diet plan to diet plan

“Most of the diet plans out there approach weight loss with a slow and sensible approach,” Flatt said. “Yes, it’s true that if you eat certain foods and work out really hard for an hour or so every day, you will lose weight. The problem, however, is that the weight comes off way too slowly because these types of diet plans don’t attack the stubborn, stored body fat.”

Flatt designed his program to provide dieters with essential nutrients that the body needs for good health and proper functioning, while eliminating all those nutrients that slow — and even stop — a person from burning fat.

The program not only gives dieters a step-by-step blueprint to lose weight, but also utilizes supplements that help dieters recruit body fat to be burned for fuel, maintain lean body mass, and increase their metabolism.

The 3 Week Diet focuses on three main components to help dieters lose unwanted weight: diet, exercise and mindset. Dieters learn what to eat, when to eat and how to eat to lose weight. They also get supplement and exercise tips to speed up their weight loss even more. Finally, they develop the mindset, or willpower, to lose weight and keep it off. The 3 Week Diet was developed by health and nutrition coach and personal trainer Brian Flatt. Brian is the owner of R.E.V. Fitness, a personal training facility based in Southern California.

America’s Blackout

American Blackout

America's Blackout

In February, National Association for Business Economics forecasters predicted a 3.3 percent growth rate in real GDP for the year. In May, they lowered that to 2.8 percent. Now, they’re predicting an anemic 1.7 percent increase. Adjust that for 3+ percent inflation, and you have negative growth—in other words, a recession.

There will be no “double dip” as the U.S. has been in a recession all along.

The Census Bureau reports the number of Americans in poverty jumped to 15.1 percent in 2010, a 17-year high. About 46.2 million people, or nearly 1 in 6, were in poverty. That’s up from 43.6 million, or 14.3 percent, in 2009. It was the highest level since 1993.

Now comes the  September 8, 2011  electrical blackout—just another sign of America’s collapse.

Apparently, the blackout provoked by the unexplained failure at a private utility company substation in Yuma.

There will be no “official” explanation for the event.

Mainly, the story covered the 1.4 million people in San Diego, who lost their power.

Preliminary economic losses estimated in the $300 million ball-park in the U.S. Firefighters responded to people trapped in elevators, while restaurant owners and workers watched food rot away. On the US side, some places were reported to have gone without electricity for almost 24 hours.

In addition to San Diego, the blackout rolled across the border and affected more than 1.3 million people in northern Mexico including all of Baja California all the way down, 900 miles, to Cabo San Lucas.

For more than ten hours in the states of Baja California and part of neighboring Sonora workplaces ground to a halt, classes were canceled, traffic lights stopped functioning and water service was interrupted.

In the Baja California state capital of Mexicali the electricity shut-down came as temperatures soared to 111 degrees.

Mexico’s Federal Electricity Commission explained that Baja California and a section of Sonora are hooked into a cross-border electrical grid that extends up the West Coast north to Canada.

In Tijuana, alone, the assembly-for-export industry which employs 155,000 people in more than 500 Tijuana plants was shut down completely.

All in all, the power outage disrupted the lives of nearly seven million people in the United States and northern Mexico-not just the 1.4 million in San Diego.

It is telling to note, however, that Wal-Mart in Calexico, California, shut down as most of its refrigerated food spoiled. Just across the border in Mexicali, Mexico, Wal-Mart Mexicali remained open during the entire blackout thanks to its back-up electrical generators.

The blackout was just another sign that the U. S. infrastructure continues to crumble, along with the U. S. economy.

Viva Mexico!
