Healthy for Life

Dr. Ray Strand has written a book entitled Healthy for Life, which is basically a roadmap for anyone who is wanting to incorporate healthy lifestyles into his or her daily routine. These new lifestyles will have a natural side-effect of permanent fat loss, as well as a happier, more invigorating life.

Two-thirds of Americans are overweight – it’s just a fact of life. And excess weight is a main risk factor for countless illnesses and early death.

What is metabolic syndrome?

Metabolic syndrome is a combination of medical disorders that increase one’s risk for heart disease and diabetes. Components of metabolic syndrome include:

  1. high blood pressure

  2. low HDL cholesterol level

  3. high triglyceride level

  4. high blood sugar

  5. wide abdominal girth (Men > 40 inches, Women > 32 inches)

Other names for this syndrome include: Syndrome X, and Insulin Resistance. It is very important to treat because of the high risk for developing heart disease and diabetes.

How is metabolic syndrome treated?

There is no FDA-approved drug to treat metabolic syndrome.  Rather, most medical protocols address the symptoms mentioned above.  The good news is that metabolic syndrome can usually be completely reversed with healthy lifestyles.

Diets Don’t Work

For years, nutritional researchers have known that dieting doesn’t work.  On 3 April 2007, UCLA published a meta-study that analyzed the results of 31 long-term studies on dieting.  The sad conclusion, once again: Sustained weight loss was found only in a small minority of participants, while complete weight regain was found in the majority. The reason is that diets are a short-term solution to a long-term problem.

Healthy for Life

is not a diet. Our weight loss specialist will teach you important principles and help you craft a successful program suited to your individual needs.  In addition, our program is more reasonably priced than popular diet plans, and it addresses the underlying cause of weight gain and Type-II diabetes mellitus. As you follow this program you will improve your overall health and be successful in losing weight and keeping it off.


Look at the the cost of dieting for a week with the major weight-loss plans, as listed by Forbes1:


Weekly menu cost ($)*

Jenny Craig $137.65



Atkins Diet


Weight Watchers


Zone Diet


*Includes cost of all food for the week

The Healthy for Life program costs less than any of these, and has a major advantage of providing you with a healthy balance of good protein, good carbohydrates, good fats, and high fiber, without depriving your body of needed nutrients from any category.  The program cost includes the ultimate in cellular nutritional support, which is critical for maintaining optimal health and overcoming insulin resistance.

Nutritional Support

A number of nutritional supplements have been shown to improve insulin sensitivity, including but not
limited to:

  • multi-vitamin with trace minerals

  • zinc

  • chromium picolinate

  • magnesium aspartate or citrate

  • B-complex vitamin

  • Vitamin C

  • Vitamin E

  • Essential fatty acids (e.g. flaxseed oil, fish oil)

We recommend the daily intake of optimal amounts of the above listed nutrients as well as several other that will provide the body with maximum anti-oxidant protection from damaging free radicals.  This is not only critical for weight loss but also helps to avoid the ravages of over 80 degenerative diseases.*
