Take a look at this letter I got yesterday. I am excited for Brad Lamm to be on the Dr. Oz show!
Hello Shaklee Family,
I am so very excited about 2011 and know this will be the best year in Shaklee ever! Why am I so confident? Because we have exactly the right products that your friends and family are looking for as we start a new year and a new decade! If you’re like most Americans, the goal at the top of your new year’s resolution list is to lose weight and get in better shape. And what better way to do that than with the Shaklee Cinch® Inch Loss Plan – a comprehensive, clinically tested† weight management program. Cinch is specifically formulated to help bring an end to the dieting cycle. In our pilot clinical study, participants on average lost 15.4 pounds and experienced a 100% retention of lean muscle mass, which means the weight they lost was from body fat – not muscle. Why is that important? Because when you lose muscle, you also slow down metabolism, or your ability to burn calories. Cinch study participants retained their muscle mass and lost that unwanted body fat!
Today, over 65% of American adults are overweight – an alarming statistic! Overweight is established using an individual’s height and weight to measure body mass index, or BMI. An adult with a BMI of 25 or higher is considered overweight.
People need to hear about Cinch and Shaklee! To help you reach out to all those who need to hear about Cinch, Shaklee is teaming up with Brad Lamm, a board-registered interventionist who has worked on The Oprah Winfrey Show in addition to his spot as a regular contributor on The Dr. Oz Show. Brad has a brand-new book, Just 10 Lbs, in which he provides insight into the various emotional triggers that may result in weight gain and/or get in the way of weight loss. His focus is on “just getting started,” beginning with “just 10 pounds!” Brad loves Cinch and uses Cinch products every day; he mentions this in the book. So don’t get overwhelmed by the number of pounds you may need to lose. Just focus on those first 10. And when you’ve accomplished that, you can stand up to the next 10.
So where are you with your weight? Is your BMI less than 25? If not, it is time to get serious and get “Cinched”! If you’re already at a healthy weight, reach out to those around you who aren’t. Click here to read more about Brad’s book – an invaluable tool to help you on your Cinch path.
