Halloween is the beginning of a very indulgent season of the year. It kicks off a continuous banquet of home-cooked meals and party refreshments. On top of an ever-changing metabolism, thanks to my off-season activity level, small weight fluctuations are inevitable. But with early spring races already filling my 2020 calendar, the last thing I want to do is set myself back in training to deal with holiday weight gain.
So instead of letting it get the best of me, I plan to reach for Phytolean as a part of my strategy to maintain a healthy shoulder season weight despite the tasty, tempting fare served at holiday gatherings. While winter weight gain should be managed with a variety of preventative measures and healthy habits, Phytolean is a particularly beneficial product for curbing calories. It helps keep the holiday weight at bay so you can enjoy the festivities (in moderation) and return to training with ease, thanks to the key ingredients that block starch absorption, decrease fat absorption, and in turn, enhance fat burning.
A 2-capsule dose of Phytolean contains:
400 mg of Razberi-K raspberry ketone - A natural compound found in red raspberries that helps with weight reduction. It simultaneously increases a fat-burning process known as norepinephrine-induced lipolysis while it also increases the production of the fat-burning hormone adiponectin. This increase in adiponectin additionally inhibits the absorption and storage of fat.
1,000 mg of Fabenol Max Phaseolus Vulgaris L. - The extract from the white kidney bean (scientifically referred to as phaseolamin) is a potent "starch blocker." This "blocking" effect is caused by a reduction in the starch-digesting enzyme alpha-amylase. When this enzyme is inhibited, starchy carbohydrates pass through the digestive tract undigested (similar to the passing of insoluble fiber), preventing their absorption and subsequent conversion to body fat.
Two capsules of Phytolean will block the absorption of 300 grams of starchy carbohydrates (that's 1,200 calories!).
So while Phytolean isn’t an excuse to load up on third helpings at the holiday meals, it will play an important role in moderating the starch-heavy feasts that make up so many of our holiday traditions. Take Phytolean this holiday season, whether you’re preparing for early races, helping yourself to an extra helping of mashed potatoes, or munching on the cookies set out for Santa, and leave “weight loss” off your list of resolutions this coming year!
