The Sodium Controversy

Remember everything thing you hear in the news you should take with a grain of salt, well now you can have it with two grains of salt. In May, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) released a report that reversed the past 40 years of dietary advice about sodium. They reviewed all of the research and clinical studies and concluded that the evidence does not support the current dietary guidelines fo[...]

Nutrition Shift from Pyramids to Plates

Every five years, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) nominate a committee of leading scientists in nutrition and medicine to evaluate and revise the Dietary Guidelines for the United States. These guidelines become the standards used by the Surgeon General and all government programs including school lunch, nursing homes, WIC (Women and Infant Car[...]

Bad Cholesterol Not Really

Cholesterol may be the most misunderstood molecule in the body. For years, the public was told that cholesterol was hazardous to health. Dietary guidelines recommended lowering cholesterol intake for heart health and Americans did. From 1980 to 2000, Americans lowered daily cholesterol intake from about 700 mg (milligrams) to less than 300 mg and it had NO EFFECT AT ALL on risk of heart disease.[...]

Healthy Muscles for Healthy Adults

Muscle size and strength are usually associated with body builders and athletes, but the latest research is proving that healthy muscles are critical for adult health. Average life expectancy continues to increase, but along with the blessing of longer life comes the risk of age-related diseases. The risks for obesity, diabetes, osteoporosis, heart disease, and cancers increase with advancing age.[...]

The Diminishing Case against Saturated Fat

Since the 1970s, nutrition policy and recommendations have focused on reducing dietary saturated fat (SFA) and cholesterol. However, during the past decade, weve begun to learn that SFA and cholesterol are likely under false arrest. Theyve been framed with guilt by association and not with solid facts. Lets explore the evidence against SFA. The case against saturated fats dates back to the [...]

Michael Cochran: Using Product Results to Build a Business

Michael Cochran is a musician who played on The Reach Out PBS Special. I signed him up almost three years ago. He started taking Qore from the very beginning and has been wearing glasses since the age of 9. But since last year he now has 20/20 vision. No more glasses!

His mother, who’s also part of Qivana, had cataracts and after a year of using Qore, no more cataracts! Plus she’s off three meds for high blood pressure and diabetes.

Michael finally started the Metaboliq system religiously last year. His photo speaks for itself.

He has never been interested in the business part of Qivana but because everyone is asking him what he did, he just called me recently and wants to build the business now. How funny!

Thank you for bringing us Qivana!

Dave Nicefaro: Bettering Myself with Metaboliq

Hi my name is David Nicefaro from Wallingford, CT. There are several reasons why I am taking this challenge. First, I believe so strongly in this company and these products and to me that is half the equation. I have been an advent fitness person my whole life. I started lifting weights when I was fifteen and back then had trouble gaining weight. Then I turned thirty, got married and started a family. I started to miss a few workouts and well we all know what happens then.

This challenge means a lot to me from an overall health perspective. Lowering my cholesterol and maintaining a normal blood pressure is paramount. My goals are simple; lose inches off my waist, look more defined and to just maintain a healthier lifestyle at forty-six years young. Dr. Layman’s Metaboliq lifestyle is truly the gold standard. It’s really up to the individual’s effort. This challenge is really about bettering oneself, that is the real prize.

Devere Bredvik: What a Fantastic 30 Days!

I reached my first short term goal of half of my targeted weight! I lost 16 Pounds in my first 30 days!  I started at 172 pounds on October 4 and on November 3 I weighed just 156 pounds.

What a fantastic 30 days! I was able to lose 16 pounds and eliminate chronic stomach pain from two ulcers that I was hurting from every week for years! The night before I started on the Qivana products systems, I woke up with extreme pain in two places of my stomach. I was forced to get up and sit upright for hours before that pain went down enough to sleep again. I had seen the doctor and was treated for the bacteria that causes ulcers the year before, but the pain was still there! The nightly pain was common. I was ready for a change and took my “Shake Yourself Slim” Challenge very seriously and followed the simple instructions.

My stomach pain is totally gone at this time and has been for weeks! My chronic back pain from previous accidents has diminished an easy two-thirds and keeps getting better! I have tons of new energy, can stay up and work later, I can run and I have a renewed confidence I will look like a “Greek God” on the beaches this Summer! The Greek God of Marketing! I have had stomach and back pain ALL of my Adult life. I sincerely feel I am on the verge of living the best years of my life! What a wonderful 47th birthday present I am able to give myself! I have been amazed at how easy this change using the Qivana products has been. Fantastic opportunity to reverse past poor conditions! What a Gift I can offer to other loved ones and friends, a system that works!

Lois Bright: Getting Off the Weight Loss Merry-Go-Round

Fifty years ago, at the age of 13, I started on the weight loss merry-go-round with more weight losses and gains than I even want to count. I tried every diet and of course many of them work and I lost weight only to find out I couldn’t maintain the loss due to LIFE.

I am looking forward to losing the extra 50lbs this time and keeping it off because resetting and recharging my metabolism has to be what has been needed all this time. I have already lost 13lbs in less than 4 weeks and don’t feel hungry, anxious, or stressed. I am really looking forward to having only one clothing size in my closet instead of every size from 4/5 to 22/24. I am really looking forward to enjoying and participating in life and not worrying about my weight, knowing I can stay at a healthy weight.

Carolyn Mueller is Taking the Challenge!

I have been using Qivana for almost two years and have lost about 15 pounds. I have lowered my cholesterol, LDL, triglycerides, and blood pressure to normal levels and have been very happy with the increased energy and multitasking abilities. It is also such a blessing to be involved with so many wonderful, positive people.

I want to lose more weight and am excited about participating in the Shake Yourself Slim Challenge. A couple of weeks ago, I started working with Jennifer Martin as my coach and so much appreciate her encouragement and belief in me.

Steve & Missy Deer Have Lost 190 Pounds!

SMD 190lbsAlthough the weight is coming off more slowly now (Steve 103 lbs, Missy 87 lbs), we are still losing inches. Steve is wearing a size 30 pants for the first time since our college years.  Missy is wearing a size 8 for the first time in over 20 years.  We feel amazing!  We wake up every morning so thankful for our new lease on life.  If it had not been for the Metaboliq system, there is no doubt that one or both of us would have had a heart attack by now.  But now we are both healthy and enjoying life. We look forward to a long, happy life together — enjoying even more grandchildren!  Did we mention that people ask us all the time if our granddaughter is our daughter?  We love it!
