Dear Valued Subscriber,   


Did you know that 100% of diabetics are magnesium deficient because you need it to use insulin well. Yeast overgrowth or candida also causes magnesium wasting.

Tis the Season Not to Indulge

Findings in Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology show that overweight and obese individuals have the potential to decrease life expectancy by up to 8 years. The study further demonstrates that when one considers that these individuals may also develop diabetes or cardiovascular disease earlier in life, this excess weight can rob them of nearly two decades of healthy life.


Their findings estimated that individuals who were very obese could lose up to 8 years of life, obese individuals could lose up to 6 years, and those who were overweight could lose up to three years. In addition, healthy life-years lost were two to four times higher for overweight and obese individuals compared to those who had a healthy weight. The age at which the excess weight accumulated was an important factor and the worst outcomes were in those who gained their weight at earlier ages.


"The pattern is clear -- the more an individual weighs and the younger their age, the greater the effect on their health," the lead author added. "In terms of life-expectancy, we feel being overweight is as bad as cigarette smoking."


Steve: While getting to your optimal weight is not always easy, optimizing your health can be accomplished, even if not in the ideal weight range. However, working with a health professional to achieve this is paramount.
