There are roughly 20,000 diet books in print... omg, talk about information overload... and here's the thing I always wondered when I saw a new, great diet book appear-- how sooo many so called experts could have such different opinions about what is the best way for us to reach our weight loss goals? It's so confusing!Yes this email is long, but actually, I'm saving you a boatload of time, because I'm going to give you the giant secret to what actually makes all these books alike!You're welcome :)Many women have told me are looking for simplicity in the struggle to feel healthy and be at their ideal weight. I know how it feels, because I've been one of them for quite awhile, I shared my story previously so I won't bore you with it again, but trust me when I say I know your pain! Please keep writing me your letters, I love reading them!That is what the August Tea Challenge is all about, creating daily templates that are livable and repeatable and actually enjoyable, that get you TO YOUR GOAL and keep you there!So back to the diet books, I was looking for the common denominator of these 20,000 diets, and it seems that Dr. Barry Sears was also wondering the same question, because I found my answer in his scientific research.
Dr, Sears is a Ph.D. who has been writing about diet and its affect on our health for over 30 years, I remember reading The Zone back in the late 90s. Since then his research has continued and science has been proving his original theories correct, in fact Harvard and the USDA food pyramids continue to get closer to his recommendations each year.The SECRET thing that he says unites all diet plans is what is called the "Glycemic Load" of the diet. Either the diet contains too much carbohydrates and makes excess insulin or too little carbohydrates and creates excess glucagon. Either way, this creates some hormonal disruption in your body that forces you away from your ideal weight.How do we solve this problem?
That's the SECRET you need to know!!!Here's a brief explaination from the Zone website abouthow to structure your meals each day:
"Following the Zone Diet blueprint is easy. At every meal, divide your plate into three equal sections. (You need an eye for that.) On one-third of the plate put some low-fat protein that is no larger or thicker than the palm of your hand (that’s because some hands are larger than others).This doesn’t have to be animal protein, but it has to be protein-rich. For vegans this means either extra-firm tofu or soy-imitation meat products. For lacto-ovo vegetarians, it can also include dairy and egg protein-rich sources in addition to vegan sources of protein. For omnivores, the choice of proteins is even wider.
Next, fill the other two-thirds of your plate with colorful carbohydrates, primarily non-starchy vegetables and small amounts of fruits to balance the protein as shown below.
Here are two very practical hints when it comes to carbohydrates. First, the more white (white bread, white pasta, white rice, and white potatoes) you put on your plate, the more inflammation you are going to create. Second, the more non-starchy vegetables you consume and the fewer grains and starches you eat (ideally none), the better the results. Scientifically, it’s called lowering the glycemic load of the meal.
Finally, you add a dash of fat (that’s a small amount). The fat should be rich in monounsaturated fat, and low in omega-6 and saturated fats. This could be olive oil, guacamole, or nuts."Below you can find a graphic from his website, www.zonediet.com and his website explains the science in much more detail than I will here. Another really important thing that he goes over is the science behind polyphenols and how they play a role in protecting your health, which are also found in our Newport Skinny Tea.I have been successful with the Zone structure and I have found many other people find its basic simplicity very easy to use. The actual diet is more specific and exact than what I'll be teaching you to use as an outline, so if you are interested in reading more about this diet and the exact way to use it, I suggest you buy the book The Mediterranean ZoneOver this into week, I will simplify this template even more and be giving you easy meal guides and recipes you can follow that will get your appetite under control, using this approach along with daily tea drinking is going to sky rocket your efforts, although I cannot make guarantees that you will achieve results, I have seen this approach work when nothing else would, so start getting ready for our August tea challenge!You can follow along with or without our teatox product,if you want to order the challenge kit, make sure you do it soon!!Details below!
Does this tea really work? How does using tea to detox help weight loss?Detox is the process of removing of toxins and harmful materials from the body, your body does this naturally and can be helped using some products and supplements. It is a very important process necessary for a healthy and active lifestyle and to keep your weight under control, as well. Now you are definitely thinking of how do I detox myself? I am going to tell you about that.Newport Skinny Tea is a wonderful mix of natural tea and herbs that helps that helps to removes the toxins and harmful materials from your body quickly. Besides detoxification, it has numerous benefits such as:
- promoting weight loss through using food more efficiently

Newport Skinny Tea actually helps your body repair damaged parts of its metabolism, while we cannot guarantee results or make weight loss claims, you can search for yourself the wonderful studies that have been published about the ingredients that are in Newport Skinny Tea.
How Does The Tea Works?
Newport Skinny Tea consists of ingredients that helps you to maintain a healthy body weight without becoming ill by harmful toxins as they are released from your fat stores. It does this as it assists in detoxification process by trapping the toxins and excess dietary fat that you are eating and escorting them out of your body quickly.
You may have been trapped in a cycle where you are dieting and exercising strenuously only to find that you are gaining weight or there is no movement on the scale, this is more common than you think! There can be several causes of this, but most commonly what is happening is that you are getting the excess fat into your blood stream through exercise and then you are not burning it off, its actually just being reabsorbed by your body.
Sometimes, if a person has made their starvation mechanism activate by withholding food from themselves for long periods of time, the body will hold on to every possible calorie, because it is in "starvation." This is an especially difficult and unfortunate place to be, because it takes a lot of consistency and patience to get out of it. You have to convince your hormones that you're safely out of the famine. For this to rebalance, you need to get your hormones under control, especially your cortisol and calm your system down, which tea is very good at doing. Make sure if you use coffee, that you drink tea immediately after your coffee, which will help your hormones balance.
Also, a metabolism can be so weighed down with toxins that it just is basically not functioning or very confused. There are so many toxins that will confuse our communication in our body. In both these cases, tea and herbs found in Newport Skinny Tea can be extremely beneficial in getting you through those plateaus and back to feeling healthy and vibrant! If you are eating a diet very high in processed foods, sugars and oils, you need to start transitioning to a higher fiber, very clean diet and keep being vigilant with it until you begin to feel better. Herbs in our tea, especially our night time tea will help escort these toxins which are trapped in your fat, out of the body, but be warned, you can feel sick when they are coming out and you can also crave them very badly as well.
I want to again state that starving the body and drinking harsh chemicals that make you lose 5 pounds in a week will only make these states worse, and is definitely not what our teas are designed to do. Our teas are designed to help you regain a state of balance, where you can enjoy eating food and exercise again, and stop worrying about every single thing you eat. Relaxing is a great benefit to your body's hormones as well.
Obesity is considered as a multifactorial disease as it causes many other diseases that are fatal, such as cardiovascular diseases. So the first step of becoming healthy is to maintaining healthy body weight by overcoming obesity. In this respect, Newport Skinny tea is a great solution to use with dietary and exercise changes. The day time tea helps to convert your food into energy by burning your food’s fats. It increases your body metabolism and have appetite suppressant ingredients that helps you to feel less hungry. By taking it on regular basis, it will help you to reduce weight and improve your body's physiological profile.The night time tea acts as a cleanser of toxins that are present in your body. It also helps the absorption of the unwanted calories and fats resulting in faster weight loss. It helps you to look skinny and beautiful by supporting positive lifestyle changes!

Are you ready to shine?
All the lists of cleansing foods or detox tips I can write won't help if you don't believe you can actually change something about yourself through your efforts of following them. In fact, no teatox or detox or diet program can do much unless you actually believe that you can transform something about yourself by following it.
The startling truth is you CAN transform yourself, even beyond what you probably believe is possible now. Through cleaning up your thoughts and habits you can shift your physical being and your mental state into the highest possible version of yourself, probably with much less effort than you're currently making.
Seriously, you can see plenty of evidence just on Instagram of people who have willed themselves into becoming their "better" version of themselves through belief, diet and exercise. So whatever that BEST version is of you, you're going to have to figure that out first in order to ever feel like you accomplished getting there and to make the journey worth it.
In the beginning of this cleanse series, I have offered some easy steps to start to feel better right away, because often feeling better leads to wanting to feel even better, and makes it easier to think better feeling thoughts and make better feeling choices. There is no one right cleanse path for everyone, because we're all made of thought patterns and physical habits, we have to try to find a way to release these comforts we've come to rely on in order to adopt another way of living. We've got to CLEANSE ourselves of what we are ready to discard, then we've got to GROW into the next, greater version of ourselves.
So, science facts tell us that 98% of our body is replaced every 2 years at a molecular level, and in 7 years all parts of you will have been replaced, essentially you will be an entirely new human being. 7 years isn't a timeline most people are motivated by, but things like your skin renew themselves so frequently you can see changes almost overnight. For example, many people share that when they start drinking our Newport Skinny Tea they can feel a difference in their bloating and see it in their face in hours or the next day.
We do become the thoughts and images we hold of ourselves, when these change they begins to express themselves through our new habits and translate into visible, tangible results we can see, such as reduced cellulite or less oily skin. We already know how to eat better, that we need to move and not lay on the couch every night, we already know that more raw food and vegetables will help us become healthier. Its just that we don't see ourselves as healthier, yet. So I want to challenge you and the image you hold of yourself with a very big question:
What would your life be like if your true beauty and charisma were shining bright in this world right now?
You may be truly scared at what you could accomplish with your true beauty and charisma unleashed in this world, you may not even want to think about it- its that scary to imagine. You may have been shamed or put down by people who didn't want you to shine or understand your journey in the world. You may fear letting go of things and people you have come to learn to live with, even though you know they are holding you back. I'm here to say, your true beauty and charisma are more powerful than even you can understand or imagine at this point, because they have never been fully allowed to shine, but if you want that experience now, you can have it. Only you can decide to reach for it though.
I can offer you hope and belief, I can offer words to inspire bravery and courage, and examples of others who have taken the steps, but only you can choose to completely honor yourself first, above anyone else. Only you can say:
This is me and I am beautiful.
I am worth the absolute best I can give myself.
No more hiding my beauty, no more will I fear my charisma.
You don't have to love me for me to love me.
It is time for me to find the best version of me and
I will not be fulfilled with anything less!
These are powerful words, words that can lead you to transform your life, which is the reason we sell tea, which is the reason we show up everyday, its what I feel to be our mission in the world- to help you find and live in your unique true beauty. You don't have to live in fear that you will never measure up, because there is no one to measure your beauty against, you only have to experience the amazing freedom and fulfillment that is waiting for you on the other side of making this brave decision to step into your beauty.
Sugar detoxget off the roller coasterSugar addiction is very common physical addiction and withdrawal is comparatively mild to emotional and psychological withdrawal that usually accompanies it. Symptoms of this process are fatigue, anxiety and irritability, depression, detachment rapid heart beat and palpitations.Getting off refined sugars and processed carbs that make blood sugar spike can be one of the keys to permanently staying at your healthy weight easily. This is also a key to avoiding disease, getting the kind of stable energy you want throughout the day and sleeping better. It will also be reflected in your skin, because your hormones will be more stable and your break outs will begin to diminish.Good Foods to replace sugary foods with:FruitPopcornAlmond butter & celeryProtein smoothiesTeamixed nuts & seedssaladdried fruit (if tolerated)Once you get off the sugar roller coaster, you will easily spot how one sugary treat sends you right back into the cravings cycle! You will start craving carbs soon after that initial sugar rush starts to let down, and that's the time to reach for protein or a salad to break the cycle.
Tips for breaking the sugar craving cycle:
Here's more instructions on breaking a serious sugar addiction, remember take your time with it, it didn't happen overnight and it won't go away overnight. From an article "4 Steps to Successfully Cut Down on Sugar" in the Huffington Post:"The average American adult consumes the equivalent of about 32 teaspoons of sugar per day. Sugar is really the number one food additive: it is added to drinks, often in the form of high-fructose corn syrup, to bread, sauces, dressings, and to all kinds of processed foods including many low-fat products. "
- Drink 8 glasses of water + tea per day
- Make sure you are getting enough fiber by eating whole foods
- Check with your doctor about a multi-vitamin/mineral supplement and testing to see if you are deficient, some nutrient deficiencies can provoke cravings
- Look out for hidden sugar + artificial sweeteners that mimic sugar in your body, especially in sauces and condiments
- Try stevia or xylitol to see if they work for you in replacing sugar
- Make sure you are getting enough complex carbs + protein to fuel your body, starving it of nutrients and fuel creates a blood sugar crash
- Most bottled juices and juice drinks are mainly sugar, avoid these as well.
- Add fruit as a dessert
Not the laziest tip ever, but if you want to get out of the diet, gain, diet cycle forever you're going to have to change some of your body's composition to become a more efficient calorie burner. Newport Skinny Tea supports this on several levels, as do the tips we've given in this series, but here's a tip from Prevention Magazine about negative-accentuated training which was written about in The Four Hour Body as well as by many other life hackers. If you want to build fat-burning muscle in the least amount of time possible, here's a great way:
Almost everyone who's lost weight has eventually put the weight back on. Why this cruel reality? It's simple, really: During the first months of any diet, your body loses both fat and muscle. Then, when you gain back the weight, you add back only fat because it's much easier to gain fat than it is to gain muscle.
"That's the dirty little secret of most popular diet plans," says exercise researcher Ellington Darden. "They don't combine muscle-maintaining exercises with the calorie reduction. More muscle is your ticket to a better body."
It's no secret that muscle is more metabolically active than fat, so by having more lean muscle on your skeleton, you'll burn more calories even at rest. Fortunately, Darden says he discovered a super-efficient way to build muscle while losing weight: It's called "negative training," and Darden tested it on more than 100 people at Gainesville Health & Fitness in Florida a few years ago. The technique involves doing the lowering part, or "eccentric phase," of a resistance exercise very slowly. But Darden gave this old-school bodybuilding trick a tweak: He found that by using heavier weights and doing just one and a half reps very, very slowly, you can achieve remarkable results from just one or two short workouts per week.
To get a taste of what Darden calls "negative-accentuated training," grab two dumbbells, and stand upright with your arms straight and the weights resting against your thighs. Do a quick bicep curl to get the weights to your shoulders; that's the starting position. Now very slowly lower the dumbbells—that's the negative phase—taking 10 to 20 seconds to let them lower to your thighs. Then immediately curl the weight very slowly to your shoulders (again, it should take 10 to 20 seconds)—that's the positive phase of the lift. Finally, without pausing, do another negative movement, taking a final 10 to 20 seconds to lower the weights to your thighs. So the idea is that you'll do the negative movement for twice as long total as you do the positive movement. (Eventually, you'll want to increase to 30 seconds for each phase of this exercise.)
By doing one and a half reps of a lift, you can complete a workout in just 20 to 30 minutes—and feel like you've exercised for more than an hour. The moves are simply that tough, which is why you'll need several days for your muscles to recover.
The negative-accentuated style of weight training results in 40 to 50 percent greater stress being put on your muscles, compared to more conventional training methods, says Darden. This stimulates key hormones that boost muscular growth and oxidize fat-cell content at a faster rate. "It may be that the higher level of stress put on your muscles, combined with just the right amount of carbohydrates, decreases insulin responsiveness in fat cells to make them shrink," says Darden.
Lazy version of the Cold Water Thermogenesis Protocol
Do you know what those big words mean to your lazy desire to get healthier? Ultimately, they mean that if you expose yourself to cold water, like swimmers do, you burn fat at a highly accelerated rate. I first learned about it from Jack Kruse, MD and you will have to trust me that his blog is intensely thorough and you will have to feel very motivated to read it all! It has also become a popular topic with biohackers like Tim Feriss and in the paleo world.
If you want the lazy version it requires that you stick your face in a bowl of ice water for approximately 10 minutes every day. You need to start slowly (maybe with 1 minute) and work your way up to 10 minutes. Never keep your face in water when it hurts or feels uncomfortable, you adapt to the cold over time and that's what causes you to burn more fat. If you want to further this practice- and it does get way more intense, make sure you do a lot of reading and talk with your doctor before doing a full body cold bath.
Drinking ice water does help also, you do have to raise the temperature of the liquid to your body temp and that burns calories, approximately 70 per day.
