How Mark Dropped His Body Fat to 7%: Part II

Last week, I shared how in a period of six months, I was able to drop my body fat from 10.1% to 7.3% as measured by the Bod Pod machine at Southern Utah University.

My first secret about how I accomplished this was using the Athlete’s Pak, consisting of nutritional supplements specifically designed to boost metabolism and encourage the development of lean muscle along with exercising three times per week for 30 minutes.

Although these nutritional supplements are indeed amazing, there is something else which is even more important to losing weight and gaining muscle. It is drinking ionized alkaline water. That is my Secret #2 – I have been drinking 10 glasses of Chanson water with a pH of 9.5 daily.

Why is alkaline water so important? The problem is LACTIC ACID. This is acid is generated by the process of exercise, and the body must buffer and remove this acid in order to recover and progress. In order to burn fat, or build muscle or endurance, you must be able to buffer lactic acid. Yet all of the conventional supplements on the U.S.A. market have very little or not effect on lactic acid and may make the body even more acidic. In fact, 98% of bottled waters and sports drinks on the market are highly acidic! Please understand this: when you flood your body with LACTIC ACID through exercise and then drink acidic liquids and supplements you are in essence “stunting” your growth and cutting your progress down dramatically!

The solution is HEALING WATER. Alkaline Ionized Water is so effective at buffering lactic and other harmful acids that it’s called Miracle Water by many of the hundreds of thousands of users in Japan, Korea, China and Russia where it has been in use for over 30 years! Alkaline Ionized Water is so profoundly effective that many users experience noticeable differences after just one 16 oz serving!. Users experience major endurance increase, reduction in joint and muscle soreness, dramatic strength and speed increase, increased flexibility, increased energy levels, increased fat burning and muscle building, plus a host of other health improvements way to long to list.

Here are some personal testimonies of about how alkaline water has helped athletes:

I have worked with hundreds of football, hockey and golf professionals over the past twelve years. Professional athletes excel in their sports because of the physical and mental attributes they have honed over the years. Lack of focus, stress, decrease in energy, muscle tightness are all derived from the same problem – lack of proper hydration. Based upon sound clinical research in speeding up recovery from vigorous activities to guarding against disease, drinking alkaline ionized water may be the single most important support your body can receive.

After a four year layoff from bodybuilding and powerlifting training, I started back to the gym full blast and was amazed at the utter lack of soreness and fatigue during my first three weeks of training. I never experienced anything near to this in my 25 years of weight training and I credit it all to drinking alkaline water.

At HEALTHandMED.com, we found that Chanson ionizers had a stellar reputation for safety, quality and price. So last year, we elected to sell these ionizers on our website.

To all friends of HEALTHandMED.com reading this, my wish for you is that you will be healthy. And I know of no better way to do this than drink lots and lots of alkaline water.

How HEALTHandMED’s Mark Dropped His Body Fat to 7%

John Anderson who does not compromise on quality. His products are internationally recognized and respected as groundbreaking and incredibly effective. Every ingredient is tested for potency and the finished product is also tested for label claims – meaning what you see on the label is exactly what you get. He has developed formulas that not only improve the body’s natural cleansing mechanisms, but also replenish undernourished systems and cells to return the body to optimal health.

Former NFL wide receiver/Super Bowl Champion and Olympic sprinter Willie Gault is still breaking records and maintaining his physique well into his forties while fueling his body with Isagenix. Willie can still bench-press more than 225 pounds, easily perform 1,600 crunches and currently trains with a professional track team. “I only get this one body and it’s not like a car that I can trade in if I total it.”

So, during these 6 months, I have been doing my usual exercising for at least 30 minutes three times a week (running, cycling and weight training) and have been taking the Isagenix Athlete’s Pak, one of many different kinds of packs available through Isagenix.

The Athlete’s Pack consists of:

Isalean Shakes

These are nutritionally complete and delicious meal replacements packed with premium nutrition that includes a balanced ratio of high-quality protein, healthy fats and energy-boosting carbohydrates. IsaLean Shakes supports weight loss and an increase in lean body mass. I have been drinking one shake for breakfast each morning.

IsaPro Whey Protein

Individuals who add leucine-rich protein, like whey protein, to their diet have more lean muscle tissue and lose more body fat. IsaPro contains an ideal amino acid profile and comes from dairy cows that are pasture-fed on small New Zealand farms, milked according to season and not treated with hormones or antibiotics. I have been taking one scoop of IsaPro per day in my shake.

Ionix Supreme

This nutrient-rich tonic contains antioxidants for cell protection and plant-based adaptogens to increase your body’s resistance to the negative effects of stress. It is designed to energize the cells and increase the body’s resistance to stress, while supporting mental and physical functions. I take a swallow of Ionix Supreme per day.

Want More Energy

This is what I use like other people use Gatorade or sports drinks. It contains Vitamins A, C and B complex, electrolytes and nutrients that are lost during stress and exercise. But it gives you energy naturally without caffeine or other stimulants. I just take a couple of scoops of it in my glasses of water before or after exercise..

Well, That is my secret #1 to decreasing body fat and gaining muscle. Secret #2 will come next week.  Until then…Be Healthy.
