Weight Loss Shakes and Studies: Shaklee Cinch Inch Loss Program

  1. 1. Weight Loss Shakes and Studies: ShakleeCinch Inch Loss ProgramWith Shaklees 50-year backgroundin vitamin research and quality-checking, it should be no surprisethat when it upgraded its dietprogram more testing was involved.According to Wikipedia: "Alandmark nutrition study publishedin the peer-reviewed NutritionJournal (October 24, 2007) led by aNobel Laureate in Nutritioncompared users of Shaklee vitaminsand supplements with users ofleading multivitamins and peoplewho took no vitamins orsupplements over a 20 year period.The study showed Shaklee users "tohave markedly better health asmeasured by higher blood levels ofkey nutrients, more optimal levelsof key health biomarkers, andlower prevalence of diabetes andelevated blood pressure." As agroup the Shaklee users "were 73%less likely to have diabetes and 39%less likely to have elevated bloodpressure than non-users. Also, thisgroup was less likely to havesuboptimal blood nutrientconcentrations, and more likely tohave favorable levels of keybiomarkers including serumhomocysteine, C-reactive protein,high-density lipoproteincholesterol, and triglycerides thaneither non-users ormultivitamin/mineral users."Its leading weight control programis known as the Cinch Inch LossProgram, has an emphasis on notjust weight, but also inches of fat reduced. Shaklee has long been involved in sports nutrition, havingsponsoreda top-ranked professional cycling team, and its supplements used by numerous Olympic and sportsathletes. Shaklee has also supplied adventure teams, such as Jacque Cousteaus and also supplied a customizedre-hydration beverage to NASA Shuttle astronauts since 1993 - which continues today.In their studies of athletic performance, a key amino acid (building blocks for protein) was found to helpmaintain muscle mass of athletes and so maintain their condition - leucine. Researchers had noted that diets forweight loss were remarkably different than diet top athletes used for routinely high performance.To understand how leucine works, its important to first take a closer look at this dreaded diet cycle. You knowthe drill. You go on a diet, and since most diets are nutritionally inadequate, you generally feel hungry and haveno energy.But worse than how you feel, is whats happening to your body. When you significantly reduce your calorieintake, it triggers whats called the "famine response." Your body thinks its starving and goes looking for energyanywhere it can find it - including your muscle. So not only do you feel bad, but instead of just losing fat, you
  2. 2. are losing muscle too.Now, why is that a problem? Well, muscle is the core of your metabolism. It burns more calories than fat, so themore muscle you have, the higher your resting metabolism and the more calories you burn in a day. Less musclemeans a lower metabolism and fewer calories burned.And things only get worse when you go off your diet and go back to your old eating habits. Because yourmetabolism has been lowered by this loss of muscle mass, you regain the weight you lost, AND you dont get allthat muscle back. The weight that you regain is body fat.With each successive diet you actually end up shrinking your muscle mass and your calorie-burning capacity. Andeach time you stop dieting, you usually gain back more fat. So, your metabolism keeps getting lower and yourbody fat keeps going higher. Does this sound familiar? Remember that muscle equals metabolism, and its soimportant to preserve your muscle mass as you reduce your calories to lose weight. This will maximize yourbodys calorie burning potential.And thats where this remarkable program from Shaklee comes into the picture. The Cinch ᆴ Inch Loss Plan ispowered by a proprietary blend of protein - enhanced with leucine - that is designed to help you break the dietcycle.Leucine is an amino acid that directly stimulates muscle protein synthesis. This means leucine helps you retainmuscle mass.Researchers have been studying leucines role in muscle metabolism for over 30 years. And body builders haveused supplemental leucine to help gain and maintain muscle mass. However, more recently, leucine has beenevaluated for its role in weight management because of this function in preserving lean tissue during periods ofreduced calorie intake.The research sounded promising, but to be sure the Shaklee science team ran its own research, a pilot study inthe Fall of 2005 to specifically test the Cinch ᆴ Inch Loss program. The study participants followed our programfor 12 weeks and the results were even better than we expected.
  3. 3. Participants lost over 15 pounds, and 4.1 inches around their waist and 2.6 inches around their hips on average.But the best part? The study subjects showed 100% preservation of fat-free muscle mass.Now, theres more to the Cinch Inch Loss Plan than just weight loss shakes. The point is to keep you feeling full,with enough energy to do whatever you want while your body adjusts to less mass intake. There are teas, foodbars, and a vitamin supplement. But that will need to be the subject of an additional article.
