I get a lot of questions about what is the best way for elder people to lose weight. I’ve looked at a lot of programs, and I found one that really complements my plan, the Aquavore Diet. It’s called the VegeMeal Plus™ Lean Body Program. It takes the latest science to improve your metabolism, heighten your nutritional status, maintain lean body mass, and improve your body composition.
The VegeMeal Plus™ Lean Body Program makes it easy for you to achieve healthy weight loss results. By combining nutritious, real foods with VegeMeal™ shakes and Weight Loss Support Packets, the program is simple to follow and adaptable to your lifestyle.
Our Weight Loss and Weight Management Philosophy
For elder adults, the key to losing weight and keeping it off is to do it without losing muscle or gaining muscle. Our muscles burn regulate much of our metabolism. If you lose muscle during weight loss, you will lose some of that capacity to burn calories. That’s exactly what happens to many people who lose weight, but later gain it all back.
Keeping your muscle metabolism high not only makes it easier to lose fat but helps it stay off long term. It’s the key to getting the lean body you’ve always wanted. In addition, after our middle ages, maintaining lean muscle mass is key to longevity and quality of life.
That’s what the VegeMeal Plus™ Lean Body Program is all about. This clean and nutritious food plan is designed to support fat loss and muscle maintenance. It consists mainly of grass-fed pasture-raised meats, eggs, fish, vegetables, fruit, roots, and nuts,
This program combines carefully selected, health-promoting foods with properly designed protein shakes and other nutrients to support metabolism, maintain muscle, burn fat, balance blood sugar, and control appetite and cravings.
What’s in the VegeMeal Plus™ Lean Body Program?
VegeMeal™ Single-Serving Drink Mix Packets: VegeMeal™ is a great tasting, nutrient-rich powdered meal supplement designed to help promote an optimal intake of protein, vitamins, minerals and fiber. It also comes with support packets design to safely increase your metabolic rate and balance your systems’ insulin, leptin and cortisol, optimizing the activity of fat-burning enzymes, while minimizing cravings.
The ingredients make this formula ideal for patients needing support with weight control and muscle maintenance.
Each serving provides significant protein to help you maintain muscle as you lose fat, and to fuel the metabolic systems that drive fat loss. This easy-to-digest protein comes from non-GMO, North American grown yellow peas, providing an excellent array of amino acids, including healthy levels of the important BCAAs (branched-chain amino acids).
VegeMeal™ has a smooth texture, mixes easily in water, and is available in pleasant chocolate or vanilla flavor. and is sweetened with the natural herb stevia.
VegeMeal™ has no gluten-containing grains, legumes, dairy products, potatoes, refined salt, refined sugar, lactose, or processed oils.
Mix one packet of VegeMeal™ powder with 8 oz. water in a blender or shaker bottle and drink twice daily.
Ask your health care provider about additional options for supporting your lifestyle and lean body success, and to ask about a safe exercise program.
How long should I stay on the VegeMeal Plus™ program?
Until you reach your weight loss goal. A safe weight loss rate generally is around 1-2 pounds per week. For example, if you would like to lose 10 pounds, this may take 5-10 weeks.
VegeMeal™ Support Packets include the following capsules:
EndoTrim™ is a comprehensive endocrine and metabolic balancing formula designed to promote lean body mass.
What is lean body mass? Lean body mass consists not only of muscles but also of vital organs, bone and bone marrow, connective tissue, and body water. Lean body mass = total body weight minus fat. The healthy functioning of our bodies does not completely depend on lower fat content, but also on obtaining a higher percentage of lean body mass, especially in the elderly. As we described before, the elderly absolutely need to maintain their lean body mass for healthy living.
EndoTrim™ also promotes optimal body composition by favorably modulating the hormones insulin, leptin, and cortisol; balancing blood sugar; optimizing the lipoprotein lipase enzyme; and limiting cravings. The ingredients also help to form a better basal metabolic rate and to control appetite.
The herbs banaba and green tea are included to enhance glucose control and insulin performance. Coleus forskohlii, Garcinia cambogia, and the polyphenol EGCg from green tea promote lean body mass through ergogenic (energy-generating) activity, stimulating metabolism and allowing for greater fat burning. Coleus forskohlii, a root extract of the perilla plant, helps to increase lean body mass and promote weight loss.
The dried fruit rind of Garcinia cambogia, also known as Malabar tamarind, is a unique source of hydroxycitric acid (HCA), which has been used for centuries in Southeastern Asia to prepare more filling meals. The bottom line: with HCA, less sugar is stored as fat and more fat is disposed from the body.
You’ve heard it again and again. Our metabolism slows down with age. Thermo-EFx™ is designed to support healthy weight loss by helping to increase your metabolism safely without causing any stimulant-associated side effects often seen with other weight reduction formulas.
Advantra Z®, an ingredient in Thermo-EFx™ is a bitter orange extract (Citrus aurantium L.) which has been shown to increase thermogenesis (fuel burning) and basal metabolic rate (BMR), while increasing lipolysis, the breakdown of fat, and may have mild appetite-suppressant effects.
In summary: the benefits of Thermo-EFx™ include:
- Increased BMR: a potential additive effect from Advantra Z® + naringin + citrus bioflavonoids (may increase BMR by 17%).
- Improved insulin sensitivity (green tea)
- Reduced glucose absorption (green tea)
- Appetite control (green tea, Advantra Z®)
- Improved mood: from more stable adrenaline and dopamine levels (green tea)
- Additional health benefits:
- antioxidant (green tea),
- cardiovascular and brain health support (green tea),
- compensation for adrenaline insufficiency (green tea, Advantra Z®)
- None of the typical side effects of stimulants: will not cause anxiety or insomnia or increase heart rate or blood pressure
Carnitine Synergy™ provides natural support for healthy metabolism & cardiovascular health.
L-Carnitine is an amino acid derivative that helps fat enter the mitochondria, where fats are converted into energy inside cells. Simply put, without adequate carnitine, fat cannot be used as a fuel source in the body.
Metabolic Synergy™ is not included in the VegeMeal Plus™ package but is an ideal formula for the metabolic syndrome patient. It includes carnosine and benfotiamine (a form of vitamin B1), two anti-glycating agents that help to prevent/diminish diabetic complications, and acts to help promote insulin sensitivity.
Metabolic Synergy™ provides nutrients needed for the TCA (tricarboxylic acid) cycle. The more glucose burned, the less glucose in the bloodstream. Nutrients needed for the TCA cycle include magnesium, manganese, and lipoic acid.
Due to their insulin mimicking action, vanadium and magnesium help glucose get inside cells where this burning occurs.
The benefits of normalizing glucose, insulin, and leptin metabolism include reduced risk of diabetes-related complications (neuropathy, kidney or vision damage), lower cardiovascular risk (lower blood pressure, triglycerides, increased HDL, better endothelial function), reduced cell proliferation (tumors), less water retention, less fat storage and easier fat release from the adipose cells.
Probiotic Synergy™ are naturally occurring friendly bacteria that are an integral part of a healthy digestive system. They exist primarily in the small and large intestine, enhancing health in several key ways. They help by assisting with food and nutrient assimilation, inhibiting harmful bacteria, and by stimulating the immune system. Proper probiotic supplementation replaces intestinal tract organisms lost to antibiotic use, disease, poor diets, stress, and other factors. By helping to optimize nutritional absorption, Probiotic Synergy™ helps to promote weight loss while maximizing healthy nutrition. This is not included in your VegeMeal Plus™ package but is a recommended supplement.
