People have been searching for the best way to get in shape, get healthy, and lose weight for decades. There have been hundreds, if not thousands of different types of diets and weight loss fads that have come and gone, but most people are still searching for something that works for them.

Everyone wants a magic bullet – the diet or exercise plan that works with little effort and commitment. We all want to look like Arnold but we don’t want to work like Arnold. We know that diet doesn’t exist, but there must be something better than all the fads that have come and gone.

Maybe there is. Ketosis is a natural process of the body and is the basis of the keto diet. Let’s break it down and see if the keto diet is what we’ve been looking for for so long.

What Are Ketones and Why Do They Matter?

So what in the world is a ketone and how will it help you lose weight? A ketone is produced when your body starts burning off its own fat. When your body runs out of glucose to burn for energy, it starts burning its own fat and protein and creates ketones as an alternate fuel source.

Your body then uses the ketones to generate energy in the absence of glucose.  Ketones are a much more stable and steady source of energy than glucose is, which we get from carbohydrates.

This process is called ketosis. Ketosis can become dangerous when too many ketones build up in your body. High levels of ketones can lead to dehydration and they can change the overall chemical balance of your blood. When ketosis goes too far, ketoacidosis sets in. Ketoacidosis occurs when enough ketones build up in your body that they become acidic. In a worse case scenario, this can cause coma or even death.

However, it’s fairly simple to keep your ketones in check, and even easier to test your ketone levels to be sure you don’t build up too many. We’ll talk about this a little later on.

What Is The Keto Diet and How Does It Work?

So how do you use ketosis to lose weight? How can you manipulate your ketones to burn fat and lose weight?

The keto (or ketogenic) diet is a low carb diet, also known as an LCHF (low carb high fat) diet, or simply, a low carb diet. It’s similar to diets like the Atkins diet that restrict carbohydrates from your diet and encourage more fats and proteins.

When you restrict your carbs, your body quickly burns through the stored glucose you’ve enters a metabolic state. That’s where the magic happens.

Once you’ve burned through all of the glucose, which can take anywhere from 3 days to a week, the body starts producing the ketones from stored fat.

That’s ketosis.

If you can maintain this diet by restricting your carbs, it can be a great tool for weight loss.

But not only that, there are studies out now that have shown that the keto diet may reduce the risk factors for diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and even Alzheimer’s disease.  These studies are relatively new, and more research still needs to be done.  But if there’s a chance you can shed some pounds AND reduce your risk of some awful diseases, that’s a win-win.

Ketone Testing and Treatment

As mentioned earlier, it’s fairly easy to test to see if your body is producing too many ketones, or if they’re producing any at all. All that you’ll need is a simple urine test that can be purchased at your local pharmacy. You can purchase them without a prescription, so there won’t be any additional hoops to jump through.

You can begin testing to see if you’ve entered ketosis just a few days after you’ve started your diet. It can take between 3 days to a week to enter ketosis, so this is also a good time frame to start your tests. If your ketone concentration is high enough, your test will change colors, which means you’ve successfully entered ketosis and begun your diet.

Positive ketones aren’t a problem if your blood glucose levels are kept within range and you’re trying to lose weight on the keto diet.

If you find yourself in a position where you do have too many ketones built up, you’ll need to drink plenty of water. The water will help flush out the excess ketones and bring your levels back to normal.

You’re going to want to test yourself every three to four hours until your levels are under control. It would also be a good idea to contact your doctor just to be sure everything is okay, and to be sure the keto diet is right for you.

Raspberry Ketones

Because of the success of the keto diet and the effects of ketones, raspberry ketones have become a pretty popular ingredient in fat-loss supplements. But, even though the word “ketone” is in their name, they have no relation at all to ketones.

So what are they if they have nothing to do with ketones? Raspberry ketone is a natural substance that gives red raspberries their powerful smell. You can also find it in blackberries, cranberries, and kiwis in smaller amounts.

So if Raspberry Ketones don’t have anything to do with ketosis, how can they help you lose weight? There are a few specific things they can do, including helping to suppress the appetite and boost your metabolism.

As with any supplement, double check with your doctor to make sure they won’t interfere with any medications you’re taking.

Exogenous Ketones and Ketone Supplements

So now that we’ve figured out what ketones and ketosis are, what are exogenous ketones? An exogenous ketone is just a fancy way of saying ketone supplement. It simply means that it’s a ketone that is made outside of your body and consumed like every other supplement on the market.

There will be times when maintaining your keto diet isn’t realistic. No one is perfect, and there are certain times of the year (like Thanksgiving) where it’s almost impossible to stick to any diet.

The purpose of exogenous ketones is to provide the body with extra ketones to use when you aren’t currently in ketosis. They can be a huge help for beginners while they transition into a state of ketosis.

The supplements are pretty easy to find, and there is a pretty good selection of exogenous ketones at most health stores.

Ketone supplements were introduced in 2014, so there hasn’t been a lot of time for extensive exogenous research. However, studies have shown that the exogenous ketones may also provide a multitude of other benefits not limited to weight loss including cancer prevention, cognitive improvement, and anti-inflammatory properties.

Like everything in life, with the good comes the bad. Thankfully, in this case, the bad isn’t all that bad, and the side effects that come along with the exogenous ketones aren’t that serious or long-lasting. Some common side effects are flu symptoms, dizziness and drowsiness, low blood sugar, brain fog, muscular cramps, and heart palpitations.  These side effects pass rather quickly, and you may not experience any of them. The effects of the supplements will differ from person to person, but it’s always a good idea to cover all of our bases to be sure we know what we’re getting into.

Conclusion

Even though it might not be the elusive magic bullet diet everyone is looking for, ketones and the keto diet may be what you need to finally shed some pounds.

Cut the carbs from your body, add some fats, and let your ketones do the heavy lifting. Mix in some exogenous ketone supplements to complement your diet along with some exercise, and you might see yourself on the cover of GQ (maybe).

Just remember not to go overboard and get too many ketones in your body and test regularly to be sure your levels are where they need to be.

The Omega 3 Benefits in a Paleo Diet

First of all, the Paleo diet is a diet where you are supposed to eat whatever your Caveman chasing a steakancestors ate. ( No, They didn’t eat processed candy bars:) I know this is a very brief description but it captures the essence of this diet. It might be a little difficult to duplicate our ancestor`s exact diet, but you could always eat a more popular version of the diet.

 

Ready, Set…..Go

You could begin by eating more nuts, seeds, grass fed meat and wild caught fish in your diet. If you implement more of these foods then you will increase your omega 3 intake.

How does the Paleo Diet improve your intake of Omega 3?????

• Grass fed meat has a lower omega 6:3 ratio than industrial raised meat

• Flax seeds contains high amounts of omega 3

• Wild fish contains more omega 3 than farm raised fish

• Pastured eggs contains vast amounts of omega 3 and has a considerably lower omega 6:3 than conventional eggs

Why it is important to get enough omega 3:

These are some of the positive effects that omega 3 is said to have:

• Lower the risk of coronary heart disease

• Anti-inflammatory

• Improve your cholesterol

• Support against cancer, depression, ADHD and Alzheimer

Plant based omega 3:

Another great source of omega 3 that you will gain when following a paleo diet are seeds, such as flax seeds. Flax seeds contain large amounts of ALA fatty acids, which is a type of omega 3.

When ingested, ALA is converted to DHA and EPA in the body. These two types of omega 3 are huge when it comes to health benefits.  However,…………. your body converts the ALA to EPA/DHA at a low rate, hence it could be hard to obtain the same amounts of DHA/EPA from plant based omega 3 sources as you could from animal based fat sources. Nevertheless, omega 3 from plant based sources such as Flax seeds are still beneficial for you and should be a part of your diet.

An easy way to implement flax seeds in your diet is to include it in bread recipes. Here it is important to grind the seeds in order for your body to digest the seeds properly.

Why it is important to focus on the omega 6:3 ratio:

When it comes to omega 3 it is important to use the ratio of omega 6:3 and not only the omega 3 intake in itself.

The modern man probably has a ratio around 20:1, and the optimal ratio of omega 6:3 which is associated with most of the health benefits are somewhere between 4:1- 1:1. When regular grain fed beef has a 6:3 ratio of around 20:1, and grass fed beef has a 6:3 ratio around 3:1, then you see why it is beneficial to consume grass fed beef over grain fed beef.

Conclusion:

In conclusion, omega 3 fatty acids are very beneficial for you. However it is important to keep in mind that the ratio of omega 6:3 is really important to enjoy the full benefits of omega 3. Seeds, grass fed meat and wild caught fish could help you optimize the omega 6:3 ratio in your body.

If you are an internet network marketer, it may be a little challenging to figure out where you should invest your time and money when it comes to the world of social media. What is the best way to go when using social media marketing for network marketing?

There are a few main websites that everyone knows about, but surprisingly, not everyone uses those sites. Billions of people are doing very well without Facebook and Instagram. But, really who cares about those people. You are thinking about the masses that are on social media and are waiting for your message.

The first thing you need to do is look at the audience of people you want to attract. If you are looking for business professional types then you most likely want to head over to LinkedIn and see who you can find there and build your audience. If you want more of the younger crowd then Snapchat is where it’s at for at least the time being:)

The truth is that social media is always changing usually for the good and then again sometimes bad and what we know about social media and all of the rules today, there is going to be something new that comes up tomorrow.

Just remember that your goal with marketing on social media is to build followers who want to know, like and trust you and for you to gather leads and eventually team members and or customers. You want to have a plan in place to capture these leads so that you aren’t just promoting all of the time and not getting anything done.

Make sure you write a proven plan down so you know what type of audience you want to target. That plan will make it much easier for you to pick the right social media platforms for your social marketing and business building.

 

All The Best

Here’s A Fast Look At A Funded Proposal Plan

It’s always very hard to pull in money for an enterprise and one of the toughest Market Business Global Business Marketing Commerce Conceptissues that faces many businesses is advertising. A large amount of folks think that it’s really setting up an enterprise that is the hardest part, but marketing a business is obviously the most complex and challenging factor. In network marketing these complications can actually be over come by embracing a funded proposal idea.

The whole idea behind selling in a network marketing business is to get as many potential prospects as possible, whom you then convert into leads and then sales. This is a long, slow and complex process and naturally the final result is always moderately unpredictable. What occurs with many businesses is they run into money problems before these promotional efforts can be converted into cash flow.

A number of folks decided to go one step beyond the common training offers in the MLM business and embraced the new idea of a funded proposal. In this concept the network marketer gets together as many potential social marketers as they can and takes them through a training program which helps them set up and become future network promoters under their own down line.

The elemental difference between this and standard techniques is the new marketing expert must pay a small amount of money for training.

The lead recruiter then uses these fees to cover any funding gap there could be between their initial promotional efforts and seeing any returns.

By adding this charge you continue to get leverage by training other team members who then become great product movers without using any of your money, when you’re not especially sure of the end result.

This is win-win situation. This way you don’t have to rely on the money that your Win-win partnership strategy concept. Businessman offer win-win scheme with handshake partnership agreement.team mate might or might not make for you in the future. Instead you need to use the money the new person has paid for training which should satisfy your current needs till you can attract future team members.

Funded proposal systems have proven to be a good a very successful method of funding a business as it grows. But it is vital to make certain you don’t charge excessively for training as this may turn away a number of potential new sign ups and jeopardize your attempts.

A funded proposal does work best in the initial stages, but having good product info and training is vital to finding the proper candidates who will convert your wonderful training into potential leads and then sales, which is the only way to grow.

Many team members will become great marketing specialists with high volume sales which will help build both your business and their business; this is why the funded proposal concept is such a success.

The Pros and Cons of Network Marketing

You’d think that after all the years that multi-level or network marketing has been around (it all started circa 1920s), people would by now be clear on what strategy works. Unfortunately, this is not the case; there is still a lot of uncertainty about MLM. Try asking three of your friends what multi-level marketing is, and odds are at least one of them would say it’s a scam. One might say it’s simply another marketing strategy, and that it’s a good venture to go into.

Just a piece of friendly advice: stick with that friend. Because while there are many misconceptions regarding multi-level marketing and companies like Now Lifestyle.com which use network marketing, what is clear is that it works when done properly. The strategy will not last this long if it cannot earn money. There are, however, some pros and cons in joining a network marketing venture, and here are some of them.

Pros

It makes you work smart, not hard. It’s a common saying nowadays—sadly not a multi level marketingcommon practice, however. With network marketing, you are not just simply selling your product. You can create a downline that will help you earn passively. This means as long as the people you recruit are earning, you can also earn via commission based on the company’s structure.

It trains you for success. What is often overlooked is the fact that network marketing trains you for the skills you need in setting up and maintaining your own business. Too many people focus on lengthening their downlines or recruiting more and more salespeople just to get the incentives. If you look more closely, however, you will see that you are being trained to sell, to motivate yourself, to manage your precious time, and create connections—all of which are crucial to any business.

Although the material benefits are important, even more important is the self-improvement you will be going through; after all, this could even be priceless in the long run.

Cons

It looks a lot like a scam. This is the most common problem with network marketing ventures these days. Since you get to earn more with less effort, it’s a scam, right? Wrong. There are legitimate ways of earning money through MLM, as many who dared have found out. However, it is also true that many scammers pretend to be multi-level marketers, which could make it difficult to find those who operate legitimately, like Now Lifestyle.com.

Too many people focus on the wrong thing. This could be discouraging both for multi-level marketingthose inside and outside the network marketing company. Imagine if you end up in a company that prioritizes recruitment more than selling, when it should be the other way around. This might be contagious; soon, you will be focusing more on trying to evangelize recruits instead of developing your skills and putting it into good use by actually selling.

Remember that all ventures or strategies have their advantages and disadvantages; the key is to be thoroughly informed so that you will have no regrets in the future.

Happy New Year!

An Easy WordPress MLM Solution

One of the first suggestions made to people entering into network marketing is always to build an internet site and by employing Word press, MLM websites or blogs might be made swiftly and easily.

To numerous folks the prospect of building a web site or blog is terrifying. All wordpress just aheadthat technical stuff. But every thing on WordPress is user friendly, you do not must know something about CSS, HTML or any other programming languages. Every little thing is WYSIWYG– what you see is what you get. Should you know just a little about HTML that is even far better.

How to Setup a WordPress MLM Web Site

Let’s take a look on how to build your WordPress MLM internet site.

First you’ll need a domain name. A.com extension is really preferable though it www.?.commight be quite tough to get exactly the name you wish to use. As a word of caution, most multilevel marketing businesses forbid the use of their firm name anyplace inside your domain name. For instance I ‘d be prohibited from using a name like KaratbarsThomasWallace.com. If in any doubt ask.

Expect to spend about $10 to $15 a year to get your. com domain based on which registrar you use as well as the extension you pick. Costs go up and down all of the time.

When you have a your domain name, the next thing on the list is web site hosting account. This can range from as tiny as $5 a month to hundreds of dollars per month according to your demands. In most circumstances it is possible to get precisely what you need to run a full wordpress mlm blog on steroids for less than $10 a month.

Most hosting providers will also possess short video tutorial to walk you through this approach.

Go over to the button on the left that says Appearance and start exploring the hundreds of free designs that WordPress.org provides. You could uncover this the most time-consuming a part of developing a WordPress MLM web site.

There are hundreds of free themes and paid themes to select from. So take your time and locate one that best matches what you might be searching for. The moment installed, you’ll be able to then start building out your new wordpress mlm website to function like a true website or like a blog. The option is yours. Usually you’ll use a blog format as this offers you essentially the most freedom to post current info, tips, tricks and inside secrets your internet site guests will be looking for.

Either way, you’ll desire to set up at the very least four “pages” on your new site: digital marketingan “about me” page, privacy, terms plus “contact me: page. It really is essential to add a privacy page and terms of use page because most search engines will rank your web site larger in case you have these pages. The “about me” and “contact us” pages are essential simply because people like to do business with people they have come to know, like and trust. Also, you want to make it simple for people to reach out and connect with by telephone, fax, e-mail, and direct mail.

Now you’ll be able to start adding content. Entering it in to the New page you will see the control panel is equivalent to Microsoft Word. There’s a button for adding video swiftly and graphics and photographs. You can even save your articles in draft form and come back to them later. Should you write a number of posts you can schedule each a single to become published on specified days.

You will soon find out about the hundreds of free plug-ins which might be offered also. These can assist with search engine optimization, and you are able to add social media buttons in the click of a mouse.

It really is time to go setup your first WordPress MLM blog. It is enjoyable, quick and simple to do.

Happy New Year!

Natural Ways to Reduce Stress

What is the stress in your life? Are you having trouble coping? You might need help in managing your stress, but want to avoid medications. Here are some natural things you can do to help manage your stress.

1. Meditate

Meditation may help reduce stress, and it does not involve any medication. One Woman meditating at her deskof the nice things about meditation is the “me time” you get while practicing it. The meditation itself helps focus the mind and relax the body. There are various types of meditation.

Qigong is a form of Chinese meditation that emphasizes the “qi” – your life force or life energy. With calm, focused breathing you are said to achieve a peaceful mental state. Another technique is to repeat a mantra, a key phrase that you can say over and over to bring a sense of calm and peace.

One helpful form of meditation for chronic stress sufferers is “mindful meditation.” In this sort of meditation, you learn how to live in the present and focus on the now. This may help with chronic stressors that are long term, and that may seem overwhelming.

2. Stretching

Stretching is said to ease the tension out of the body. Combining stretching with meditation, as in Qigong and Yoga, can be especially beneficial, as both mind and body are targeted. Stretching helps relax tight muscles and realign the joints. You might consider Yoga or a martial arts class – being with other people and getting out may help relieve your stress, too.

3. Exercise

Stress is said to result in toxin build-up in your body, perhaps because of how it affects circulation and digestion. Exercise gets you blood moving, which aids couple exercising at the parktoxin elimination. Exercise also strengthens muscles and moves the joints. All of this can help “work out” your stress, and minimize stress-related weight gain.

4. Herbal teas

Herbal teas are generally inexpensive and widely available. You can sip them throughout the day, at key points during the day, and before going to bed. Chamomile tea can be helpful, as can lemon balm or catnip tea. If you like, look for a tea made from a blend of relaxing herbs in your local grocery or health food store.

5. Eat well

Good nutrition is essential for dealing with stress. Vitamin C, magnesium, eat well and live well - pictures of fruits and veggiescalcium, potassium, and Vitamin D are especially important in helping the body handle stress. Studies show that Vitamin C helps boost the immune system, and magnesium is important in muscle relaxation and nerve function.

Use Your Blog To Help People – Part Three

Since I’m sure you’ve read the first two parts of this series, you already know we’re talking about how your blog should be about free stuff, training, information, you helping the reader in some way, etc, etc, etc,

You also know they’re four factors to a great training blog. The 4 factors to consider for an effective MLM blog site: focus, material, traffic, and updates.

We’ve covered the first two: focus and material so today let’s talk about the last two:  traffic and updates:

GETTING PEOPLE TO YOUR WEBSITE;  (TRAFFIC)
Let me give you some advice.  Which I learned the hard way……..Never advertise for team members. It is a major waste of money, time and energy. Usually it brings you untrained and unqualified prospects, who will take up your time and then quit within a couple of days because they haven’t made a million dollars in that short time. Use your training articles to recruit outstanding team mates.

Place them on web article sites, (Google, 25 top web article sites). The articles will be picked up by the search engines (Google, etc.). When interested people are motivated enough to search the web for MLM training and information, come across your blog and or your articles and click the links to your site, you have a new, quality, lead that really didn’t cost you anything. Take a look at some articles about using web articles to establish traffic…..

UPDATING:
The search engines only pay attention to websites that keep growing with new information. It is really, really important that those search engines (SEO) continue to look at  your MLM blog to keep your latest articles spreading across the web.  To do this, you must keep adding fresh content to your blog at least once or twice a week.   You will get pretty good at this so don’t worry about it! Just go for it!

Finally, the keys to building and maintaining an effective MLM blog are those great free training articles that consistently appear on your blog site and through out the web. If you can be really patient and keep working on your blog you will see your empire grow before your eyes!  YOU CAN DO THIS!

Happy New Year!

Use Your blog to Help People – Part Two

Yesterday, I wrote about using your blog as a recruiting tool by offering free training material for your potential team and existing members.  Your blog is without a doubt, the very best location to start. I listed four factors but only talked about the first one………….focus.
The 4 factors to consider for an effective MLM blog site: focus, material, traffic, and updates.

Let me continue with the second factor: material.

Where the “All About Me” site is all about the MLM program and here it comes……..the offer to join because the owner is making one bzillion dollars and you will too. Your blog site should be loaded with information, tips, strategies, and other approaches for MLM training – all FREE of charge!

Your helpful material should have three varieties – helpful articles, a training program, and links to your offer(s). The best MLM blogs have tons of quality, articles that are both informational and practical,. Learn to write them yourself and use the internet to help you improve your writing skills and find great material to write about.  Cover the topics that are important to new people who are in need of training. Learn the proper use of key words in your articles.

You can also create a simple step-by-step training program to present on your MLM blog if you like. That may need to come later after you gain knowledge and skills that have proven successful for you. You might achieve almost this same effect by organizing your articles grouped by important topics (recruiting, writing, selecting an MLM program, secrets and techniques, and so on). I can also give you a three step training guide.  It’s free and located in my blog.  (Yes, I know, kinda of a shout out for my stuff, but really it came from other people who have been so kind to help me!)

The third type of content will be the links to your business. Since really the purpose of your site is on training, your offer should be made available as your visitors gain confidence in you as an expert teacher and business person.  You could place your links at the end of your articles to pages that talk about your program. This is much less aggressive and still accomplishes the result you’re looking for – new team members. The best part of this is  they are not just new members but they are ‘trained’ new members who can use your blog site to train their new team members if they so choose.  Every MLM experts’ dream is to have a team that has already received great training. Untrained team mates take up huge amounts of a sponsors’ time. Get rid of that problem, by signing those who you have already trained on your free training site.

Tomorrow:  Part Three

Happy New Year!
