| Weight Gain and
If you are having problems with losing weight (we
know sticking to a diet can be difficult) then this message will be the most important
message you will ever read.
A major league weight loss psychologist, Dr. Roberta Temes,
has finally decided to publish the same sessions she uses with celebrities and other VIP
New York clients that allow them to almost effortlessly follow the advice of their
dieticians even with their hectic schedules.
She has had great success in working with people who have
problems following the eating and exercise plans they know they need to use in order to
get to and maintain their ideal weights.
she has worked with some celebrities we can not name, she also has also been able to help
normal people finally gain control over cravings they never believed they would overcome.
Ann Carlo from Sag Harbor, New York is an example:
"Enjoying Weight Loss is fabulous. Thought I forgot all
about it yesterday, until I realized that I ate breakfast (which I rarely do), drank a lot
of water, had a veggie dinner and DIDN'T EAT ANY SUGAR . . . A MIRACLE! Can't convince me
that this system does not operate on some level . . . even though you're not always
conscious of it at the time."
Dr. Temes is on the Department of Psychiatry at the SUNY Health Science Center Medical School so everything she
does is based on research and not pop psychology. This is why it is the
first hypnosis program we have ever recommended.
This is not the typical weight loss program you
might be used to. It is not a diet or a workbook and it
wont try to psychoanalyze you with a bunch of inner child mumbo
jumbo. It is straight Medical Hypnosis from the author of Medical
Hypnosis, the first hypnosis textbook used in Medical Schools.
Here are some of the amazing things you will learn when you go
through Dr. Temes seven session program:
How to stop your cravings instantaneously, allowing you to
stop binging before you start
How to get off the diet roller coaster. (Learn how to move
from being a dieter to being someone who is permanently healthy.)
How to create new neural pathways that empower you to replace
unhealthy eating habits with healthy
Why willpower will not work long term, and how to create
How to eliminate your desire for sodas and replace them with a
craving for WATER!
And that's just a tiny fraction of what you'll learn how to do in
this 4 CD audio program.
The best part about this program is that it uses hypnosis, so
there are no guide books or things you are supposed to do later. All you do is spend
15 minutes a day listening to the sessions and the changes start to happen. Most
people notice a dramatic change within just 21 days!
This program comes with an iron-clad 1 YEAR no questions asked
money back guarantee and it's easy to order.
Best of all, because it is so important to your health that
you get this program I have negotiated a special deal from the publisher.
This offer which includes the complete Enjoying Weight Loss
4-CD Program for only $119.00
P.S. This program is recommended by doctors, trainers,
and dieticians who us it to help their clients with diet adherence:
have been using the Enjoying Weight Loss
program with my patients who tell me they don't even think about 'bad' food anymore . . .
it's just a fact in their mind. They find it easy to change self-destructive behavior and
'stay with the program' that I recommend. This has always been my biggest challenge as a

I Feel 100% Better Since I Quit Smoking
"Not smoking makes me feel great!" Often you will hear an
ex-smoker excitingly express this statement when first quitting cigarettes. What is
amazing is when you think back to the days when the very same smoker would blatantly
proclaim that his smoking never caused him any difficulty. He functioned perfectly normal
for someone his age. It is impossible for any smoker to accurately judge just how much
impairment his smoking is causing. Not until he stops will he actually recognize the full
degree of improvements possible by quitting smoking.
The statement that not smoking makes the
ex-smoker feel great is very misleading. Not smoking doesn't make people feel great. It
actually only makes them feel normal. If a person who never smoked a day in his life
decides one morning not to have a cigarette, he will not feel any better or worse than the
morning before. But if a person wakes up everyday and smokes a cigarette, followed by 20,
40, 60 or more before going back to bed, he will feel the effects of nicotine dependence.
He never feels normal. His life consists of a chronic withdrawal state, only alleviated by
lighting one cigarette every 20 to 30 minutes.
While smoking in these intervals keeps the
suffering of withdrawal down to a minimum, it does so at a cost. It impairs his breathing,
circulation, elevates his carbon monoxide levels, wipes out his cilia, robs his strength
and endurance, and greatly increases his risks of deadly diseases like cancer. All this
will cost him hundreds of dollars a year, make him appear socially ostracized, and even
viewed by family and friends as weak or unintelligent. It is no wonder that once he quits
smoking he feels so much better. But it is important for the ex-smoker to realize that he
feels so much better because smoking made him feel so bad.
For once a smoker quits, he often forgets
just how rotten life was as a smoker. He forgets the bad cigarettes, the cough, the aches
and pains, the dirty looks, the inconveniences, and most importantly, the addiction. He
forgets what life was truly like as a smoker. Unfortunately, he doesn't forget everything.
One thought often remains, lingering for years and even decades--the thought of the best
cigarette he ever smoked. It may be a cigarette he smoked 20 years earlier, but it is the
one he remembers above all others. Without keeping an accurate perspective of what life
was really like with cigarettes, the thought of the best cigarette often leads to an
attempt to recapture the bliss by taking a puff. What follows is an unexpected and worse,
an unwanted relapse to a full fledge addiction.
To stay off cigarettes, some people look at
smoking in an artificially negative light. They think of the worst condition smoking may
or may not really cause them. Don't look at cigarettes this way. But on the same note,
don't look at cigarettes in an artificially positive light either. Don't think of smoking
as being inhaling one or two delightful cigarettes a day just when you feel like it. You
couldn't do that before and you will never do it that way again. Rather, look at smoking
as it actually was. It was expensive, inconvenient, and sociably unacceptable on a daily
basis. It controlled you totally. It was costing you your health and had the full
potential of one day costing your life. See cigarettes for what they were. If you remember
your life as a smoker it will be easy to NEVER TAKE ANOTHER PUFF!

What Does Nicotine Do to Your Body?
Nicotine, the active and
addictive ingredient of tobacco, is a mild central nervous system stimulant and a stronger
cardiovascular system stimulant. It constricts blood vessels, increasing the blood
pressure and stimulating the heart, and raises the blood fat levels. In its liquid form,
nicotine is a powerful poison-the injection of even one drop would be deadly. It is the
nicotine, not the smoke, that causes people to continue to smoke cigarettes, but it is the
cigarette smoke that causes many of the problems.
Cigarette smoke is a combination of
lethal gases-carbon monoxide, hydrogen cyanide, and nitrogen and sulphur oxides-and tars,
which contain an estimated 4,000 chemicals. Some of these chemical agents are introduced
by current tobacco manufacturing processes. Although tobacco has been smoked for
centuries, only recently has it moved from the naturally grown and dried process. It
appears that in the last century the negative effects of smoking have skyrocketed. My
belief, which is shared by many authorities, is that much of the added risk is produced by
the chemical treatment and unnatural processing of tobacco. The little research that has
been done on this (it is not sponsored by the industry) suggests that natural tobacco
poses much less cancer risk, as well as cardiovascular disease risk, though this is
predominately from the nicotine, which is not changed by processing.
Dangers in modern tobacco products
include pesticides used during growth and chemicals added to the tobacco to make it burn
better or taste different. Chemicals added to the leaves and papers to enhance burning are
among the major causes of fire deaths in this country, as cigarettes continue to burn
after they have been put down. The forced burning also makes people smoke more of each
cigarette in order to complete it. Sugar curing and rapid flue drying are also associated
with increased toxicity of cigarettes. Kerosene heat drying contaminates the tobacco with
another toxic hydrocarbon. Using a natural tobacco, such as some imported from France or
Germany and a few U.S.-made cigarettes (possibly Shermans and More), may reduce the
smoking risk. If a cigarette does not go out when left alone, it has been chemically
Other toxic contaminants in
cigarettes include cadmium (which affects the kidneys, arteries, and blood pressure),
lead, arsenic, cyanide, and nickel. Dioxin, the most toxic pesticide chemical known to
date, has been found in cigarettes. Acetonitrile, another pesticide, is also found in
tobacco. The nitrogen gases from cigarettes generate carcinogenic nitrosamines in the body
tissues. The tars in smoke contain polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), carcinogenic
materials that bind with cellular DNA to cause damage. Antioxidant therapy, particularly
with vitamin C, is protective against both PAH and nitrosamines, and extra C also blocks
the irritating effects of smoke. Smoking itself reduces vitamin C absorption; blood levels
of ascorbic acid average about 30-40 percent lower in smokers than in non-smokers.
Radioactive materials are also
found in cigarette smoke; polonium is the most common. Some authorities believe that
cigarettes are our greatest source of radiation. A smoker of one and a half packs per day
may be exposed to radiation equal to 300 chest x-rays a year. Radiation is a strong aging
factor. Acetaldehyde, a chemical released during smoking, causes aging, especially of the
skin, as it affects the cross-linking bonds that hold our tissues together.
