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.

Iran Hacked the Drone

The Drone

The Drone

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad ratcheted up claims surrounding the American drone the country claims it downed, telling Venezuelan state TV that it has been “able to control” it.

“Those who have been in control of the spy plane will analyze the plane’s system,” Ahmadinejad bragged, according to CNN. “The systems of Iran are so advanced also, like the system of this plane.”

In other words, Iran hacked the drone.

Officials claim they brought the drone down with a cyber attack after spotting it flying over Iranian air space. American officials have not confirmed that a missing U.S. drone was the one in the video, and said a malfunction was likely the real reason behind it’s going down and not an attack.

Iranian defense minister Gen. Ahmad Vahidi also slammed the U.S. for not offering an apology.

“Their plane invaded Iran and Iranian forces reacted powerfully,” he told the semi-official Mehr news agency. “Now, instead of offering an apology to the Iranian nation, they impudently ask for the return of the plane.”

Fars News Agency also claimed the country had brought down 90 American drones in the past four years.

While it is improbable that Iran has managed to take down that many drones without notice, the American military was dealt another embarrassing blow on Tuesday, when another remote U.S. drone had crashed while landing off the East Coast of Africa, the AFP reported.

Now that Iran has hacked the drone, will a 13-year old kid be next?

    and there’s Dick Cheney egging on for another war…all for big business, that he represents.
    God help America if we get a Repubican President!

  • Jim

    Come on, who is Iran trying to kid or impress that they are so technologically advanced and capable. If they are they wouldn’t be importing those 6,000 IEDs radio frequency modules from Digi International through the covert re-export business of the 4 Singaporeans. It goes to prove that Iran does not even have the ability to produce these modules. That is also the reason why they are employing Russian scientists to devise the triggering mechanism for their nukes. In fact, why experimenting with their own indegenous firing mechanisms which was tested on their rockets and missiles recently, there were several explosions resulting in severe damage to their programme. These guys are really hopeless in creating devices of their own. They are only good at copying the designs of others and putting their “made in Iran” label on it, that’s all.

  • Good points, Jim. But maybe Iran also imported some 13-year olds to hack into the drone. As for the explosions in Iran, and some random killings of their scientists, well, maybe the CIA is hard at work “promoting freedom.”

  • Facts of life

    Maybe it is also
    an opportunity for
    Iran to share all
    about the captured
    drone with its’ friends.

  • Yes, Iran can and will not only share its secrets concerning the drone. Now Iran can build its own drones to take over Iraq now that the U.S. has officially lost the war there.

    “now that the U.S. has officially lost the war there”. Unquote.

    Hi John;

    your President will be very displeased with the above-quoted statement.
