Reverse the Clock on Aging While You Lose Weight

February 5, 2019

What’s missing from your diet could be causing your skin to sag and age prematurely.

Anytime a new diet craze takes off I look for clues about the underlying health of the person while they’re losing the weight. Have you noticed all the sagging skin on people who lose weight with Keto? The weight is coming off but with it is often a face that looks like it has aged dramatically. This is a sign to me that at least one key nutrient is missing from this very popular diet.

I’ve got news for you – when you find the diet that’s right for you, not only will you lose those pounds and inches you thought were permanently glued to your waist and thighs, but your skin will tighten and have a youthful glow. You’ll feel energized, even with underlying health conditions like hypothyroid and autoimmune diseases. And you’ll digest fats – even without a gallbladder.

In the fourth video of my FREE 5-part Metabolism Reboot mini-course, we’re talking about supplements – specifically, the ones your body needs while it’s going through a Radical Reboot. Nobody talks about this but it’s important – your body has different nutrient needs while you’re losing weight than it does when you’re maintaining a healthy weight. And what you don’t know can cost you your health and cause you to age prematurely.

What You Really Lose When You Lose Weight

Your adipose tissue – also known as fat – has a big job to do. Your fat cells store energy for your body to use later, when you need it the most. But, because fat cells are so efficient at storing things, your body uses them to store all kinds of other substances, and pretty soon those fats look like a hoarder’s closet. They’re stuffed full of hormones, fats, fat-soluble vitamins, and toxins your body can’t process.

When your body loses weight and those fat cells shrink, they start to release their contents into your bloodstream. If you detox along with your diet, then your body will break it all down into smaller molecules that you easily eliminate. But, if you aren’t taking supplements and eating foods that support healthy detox, those excess hormones (like estrogen), pent-up vitamins, and toxic chemicals wreak havoc when they’re released, causing everything from “keto flu” to rebound weight gain as your body does damage control trying to protect the healthy cells you have left.

Beyond the toxins that flood your bloodstream when you lose fat, there is another cost. When you are gaining weight, your body is in “storage mode,” and shuttles fat-soluble nutrients into your fat cells instead of using them. So those expensive vitamins and fish oil supplements you’ve been taking are likely going right into storage before they can be used. When you lose fat, you lose those essential fatty acids that repair cells, help create new cells, and flood your tissues with oxygen. You also lose fat-soluble vitamins that are essential for the health of everything from your bones and brain to your immune system.

Replace the Nutrients You Can’t Afford to Lose

When we talk about supplements in the Radical Metabolism plan, it’s not all about taking pills. Radical Metabolism incorporates strategic foods all throughout your day that help you detox while replenishing those much-needed fat-soluble nutrients that leave at a rapid rate when your fat cells leave. Your metabolism doesn’t function at the same rate or with the same priorities all day, and Radical Metabolism makes the most of those metabolic highs and lows with targeted nutrition (and delicious recipes) that supports healthy cells while increasing your fat-burning.

Because Radical Metabolism was created with slow losers and people with thyroid issues and autoimmune diseases in mind, supplementation plays a key role. If you don’t have a gallbladder or yours isn’t functioning optimally, then gallbladder replacement therapy with targeted nutrients can be helpful to more efficiently break down and process fats to help you use what you need for energy and eliminate toxins. If you have a fatty liver then you need to supplement with specific nutrients that help your liver with its fat loss.

There’s decades of research behind one key nutrient that ONLY Radical Metabolism is talking about, and I share detailed information with you in the fourth video of the FREE Metabolism Reboot mini-course. There are times to use this nutrient in the foods you eat – even dessert – and times to supplement in larger amounts to keep skin, hair, and nails healthy and youthful while fat comes off rapidly, to bring oxygen into your tissues and boost your energy.

  1. janice

    I am interested in this information

  2. Mary Marston

    I’ve already bought the book. Is there a way to access the videos?

  3. Bev

    I really don’t like that you lure me here with a promise on email to find out “What’s missing from your diet could be causing your skin to sag and age prematurely” only to find a promotion for your book and no answer.

    • Team ALG

      Bev, the answer is not only in the book but in the FREE Metabolism Reboot videos that are linked above. She is offering much more in those videos than just a simple answer to this question. I think you will enjoy the information.

    • Deborah

      Me too, sometimes you just want an answer to the topic presented and not have to wade through hours of information. We just don’t have the time.
      I have the book and am reading and have seen several videos. If it was in there I am not remembering at the moment.
      AND, I understand the marketing of the product.

  4. Renee Richmond Martin

    I bought the book how do I gain access to videos?

  5. Cher

    ditto Bev’s comment

  6. Team ALG

    Mary and Renee, just click on the link above “FREE Metabolism Reboot” in blue above to access the videos.

  7. Laurie A

    I have followed you for years, use all supplements and whey powder from Unikey. I also swear by your Y/C cleanse, etc. when I fought off a bout of candida a few years ago. Now I have tried your radical metabolism supplement, which smells and seems wonderful…however, I am on a lectin free diet, and wonder if the African mango may be full of lectins. I know that the benefit probably outweighs the issue, but I would just like to know going forward. THANK YOU for all your wonderful knowledge and products.

    • Ann Louise Gittleman

      Laurie: The African mango is a purified extract which is not a source of weight -impairing lectins in the diet. Our fans and followers have gotten significant weight loss results with the Radical Metabolizer which contains this extract as well as other metabolic enhancing herbs.

      Laurie, Please look at the 4th video, which is available by clicking on the link above.

  8. Linda

    I’m currently reading the new book Radical Metabolism and I have a question. Well, a couple questions. Of most importance to me is the Watercress Soup. In addition to metastatic breast cancer for 19 years, I also have a blood issue called Factor V Leiden. I have had 2 DVTs, one in 1996 and one in 2001 and have been on Warfarin for 20+ years. Will that much Watercress (Vitamin K) for 4 days affect my PT/INR? Thank you.

    • Team ALG

      Linda, to be on the safe side you can substitute arugula for the watercress. It works well in the recipe and the plan. The vitamin K is much lower in arugula and should not impact your medication.

  9. Susan

    I have done your fast track detox in the past with incredible results in terms of overall health and weight loss. I was going to do that again but came across this. How is this new plan different or can I incorporate some things from new plan Into the detox plan? Or… Do you recommend to skip the detox and go move into radical plan?

    • Team ALG

      Susan, The Radical Metabolism plan is based on the Ann Louise’s latest research. We recommend going right to this plan for best results.
