Second Strategy, Here I Come
Q I am just getting around to the second strategy of Durk Pearson & Sandy Shaw’s 21st Century Healthy Weight Program. With the Glycemic Control barley products alone, including the quite wonderful LifeByChocolate, I have lost a total of 28 lbs to date. I feel terrific and have lots of energy, and I’m quite impressed that I’ve been able to maintain an exercise program, something that had eluded me for a long time. What additional power will the ShapeShifter Teas give me? I can hardy wait to find out.

A Assuming that you continue with the first strategy—and that includes adherence to a low-glycemic-index diet, along with continuation of your exercise program—the teas will promote a number of mechanisms that tend to: reduce fat synthesis by inhibiting the enzyme fatty acid synthase; increase energy expenditure; and increase the number and energy output of mitochondria.* Many people using this strategy comment about how energized they feel.
