Yes! Finally the RHOK Stars have secretly discovered a way to have our cake and drink it too. Mrs. Hart invited us over to her nest on Monday night for a "Shake" Party with one of our advertisers here at The RHOK, Mary Kay Penrice, a ViSalus Distributor. Mrs. Hart has been replacing one meal a day with the protein shakes since December 30, 2011 and absolutely insisted that we all try them so that we could at least see and tell our readers what ViSalus is if someone asked. We did and guess what? Some of us are getting cake for breakfast now.
Mary Kay has actually attended a few of our RHOK Outs so many of our readers may actually remember her. She is very passionate about ViSalus and has written the following guest post for us telling us a little more about the product and what it can do for us from a weight, shape and health standpoint.
Aren't we cute?
Mary Kay wants to let us know among the top New Year’s Resolutions are resolutions about weight loss, exercise, and to quit smoking. Also popular are resolutions dealing with better money management/debt reduction.
The following shows how many of these resolutions are maintained as time goes on:
-past the first week: 75%
-past 2 weeks: 71%
-after one month: 64%
-after 6 months: 46%
While a lot of people who make New Year’s Resolutions do break them, research shows that making resolutions is useful. People who explicitly make resolutions are 10 times more likely to attain their goals than people who don’t explicitly make resolutions.
A few other facts, taken from the website of Dr. Oz, himself: Meal replacement shakes are an effective, easy way to drop pounds. They teach you how to eat less and lose weight quickly and permanently – and the right shake can boost your metabolism by 25%. Who doesn’t need that?
The fact is, when you’re trying to lose body fat, you can’t skip breakfast – but you may be too busy to think about calories and to make healthy choices. That’s why drinking a protein shake first thing in the morning is a simple, foolproof weight-loss method. When you drink the right protein shake, you give your body the nutrients it needs and you can also:
- Boost your metabolic rate by 25%
- Save calories by avoiding fatty foods (if you drink a shake for breakfast, you can save an average of 400 calories per day).
- Keep your blood sugar levels balanced, allowing your body to burn stored fat as fuel.
- Increase your energy levels, which enables you to increase your activity and automatically burn more calories.
According to OK.gov website:
- Nearly 67% of Oklahoma adults are either overweight or obese
- The number is 34% for Oklahoma youth
- Overweight and obesity are associated with many health risks, such as heart disease, high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol, Type 2 Diabetes, and depression
- The estimated cost associated with obesity in Oklahoma is more than $854 million each year.
- This problem affects the health of individuals, families and communities throughout the state.
The Editors of Prevention in an article titled “The 8 Most Artery-Clogging Cities in America”, Tulsa, OK is listed as number 7. One thing that probably contributes to Tulsans’ high risk of heart disease is the city’s low “walkability”. According to Walk Score, an organization which promotes pedestrian-friendly communities, only 6% of Tulsa residents live in a neighborhood with a walk score of 70 or above (100 being best) and 57% live in entirely car-dependent locales.
And if that is not enough facts, researchers at University of Texas Health Science center in their recent study, found 50% of post menopausal patients with breast cancer were obese, another 25% overweight, and the remaining 25% of normal weight, proving that obesity and breast cancer are linked.
Quick, get NAKED & go step on your bathroom scale…then look in the mirror. Like what you see? Is your New Year’s Resolution going to be to LOSE WEIGHT again this year? How about adding 7-10 lbs to your current weight like the average American over the holidays… It doesn’t have to be that way!
