Ever heard that being overweight is genetic, a disease or a "psychological problem"?  Guess what; it's none of the above! The cause of obesity is a vitamin and mineral deficiency!  

When you're overweight it's because your body is deficient in the nutrients that it needs to maintain a proper, healthy body mass. To compensate, and in an attempt to get the nutrition it needs, you begin to 'crave' things.   In animals it's called pica or cribbing. In people we call it 'the munchies.'  This causes you to eat more and more calories that cause you to gain weight, but you still are deficient so the vicious circle continues on and on.  Before you know it you're 20, 50 or even 100 pounds or more overweight! 

It's been estimated that 20% of children and 65% of adults are overweight.

Most dictionaries describe pica and cribbing as psychological disorders!  That's because they get most of their information on these problems from 'main stream medical doctors' who have little or no training in nutrition!


Dr. Wallach, however, has extensive experience with these issues and has correctly diagnosed them to be deficiencies of nutrients.  When the animal, or person who is experiencing these cravings are provided with the proper nutrition THEIR CRAVINGS GO AWAY!  And, if they adjust their eating habits, they will also return to their proper body weight!

Many people have reached a point where they are considered to be obese. They have tried and tried to lose weight without results, or if they did lose weight they gained it back!  This is ususally because they didn't change the habits that got them there in the first place AND they failed to get the proper nutrition necessary to solve their weight problem.

If you only want to lose 10-20 pounds you'll probably lose that much just by starting on the Healthy Start Pak appropiate for your body weight.

If you need to lose more; Youngevity has a whole host of products and programs to assist you in your efforts!

Keep in mind that IT'S CRUCIAL TO SUPPLEMENT with the 90forLife program and extra selenium when doing any weight loss protocol. Your body stores toxins in the fat and when fat is burned the kidneys and liver can become stressed as they try to get the toxins out of the body.  Failing to provide the body with the nutrition it needs to function properly at this stressful time could cause serious problems.

We recommend being on the 90forLife program appropriate for body weight a minimum of 30 days before beginning any hard core weight loss protocol.
