Cinch® Has a New Fan in Dr. Oz Show Contributor Brad Lamm!

It seems like everyone makes a New Year’s resolution to lose a few pounds. What if you could lose that extra 10 pounds and, along the way, pick up 10 brand new Members with Cinch? Check out how Shaklee is making it easier than ever.

Commit to losing 10 pounds, and let your success attract people to you—and your Shaklee story. Shaklee is in contact with Brad Lamm, intervention specialist, bestselling author, and Dr. Oz Show contributor, to help you attain your goal with a simple but powerful approach—help 10 people get 10 pounds healthier with Cinch.

When you focus on losing just 10 pounds and helping 10 others do the same, you can begin to see the inches come off with Cinch while your business grows. Now that’s the kind of expansion you want!

Here’s How It Works:

New Years Resolutions…What is yours?

Each year millions of people make a New Years resolution….are you making one for 2011?

One of the most popular resolutions is to loose weight…which is a great resolutions. Here is a plan to help you stick with it.

Shaklee Cinch. The big difference between Shaklee Cinch and other weight loss programs is Leucine which helps you keep the muscle you already have and burn fat instead of losing muscle. The program is easy and effective.

Leucine is an amino acid that preserves lean tissue during lowered calorie intake, so it helps you keep the muscle mass you have while you diet. Keeping muscle mass in turn increases your metabolism.

The results of the pilot 12 week study done by Shaklee for the Cinch Program:

Average Weight Loss: 15.4 lbs

Average Inches Lost on waist: 4.1 in

Average Inches Lost on Hips: 2.6 in

and the best part 100% of lean muscle mass was preserved!

So what is the Cinch Weight Loss Plan?

1. Replace 2 meals a day with a Cinch Shake (Shakes come in Vanilla, Chocolate, and Cafe Latte) and eat a healthy 3 third meal

2. An afternoon snack bar. Snack bars have 120 – 130 calories and come in 3 flavors. (Chocolate Decadence, Lemon Cranberry, and Peanut Butter Crunch.

3. 3 in 1 Boost is a dietary supplement that includes 23 essential vitamins and minerals and EGCG which is an ingredient in green tea which helps boost metabolism.

4. Energy Tea! This tea is made up of a blend of 3 teas including roobios red tea, white tea, and green tea. Its a great replacement for sugary snacks or high calorie coffee drinks. Great for mid morning or afternoon pick me up. Comes in unsweetened or pomegranate.

For best results you need to also add exercise and a healthy third meal to the plan. But to help with this you can join the Cinch Community online. Cinchwellness.com features meal and exercise plans, exercise examples, meal tracking, wellness workshops, community message boards, wellness articles written by Dr. Jamie McManus and more.

A great and easy way to get started is the Cinch Starter Kit which includes:

  • vanilla shake mix packets (14 servings)
  • 3-in-1 boost™(42 count)
  • assortment pack snack bars (10 count)
  • energy tea mix (28 sticks)
  • daily journals (2)
  • cinch program guide

Poison Proof Your Home

Did you know that poisoning is the 5th leading cause of accidental death among young children? And the leading cause of poisoning in children is HOUSEHOLD CLEANERS!

Why do we keep some many toxic and poisonous items in our home when it is not necessary? There are non-toxic options to the cleaning products we keep in our home.

Window Cleaner Options:

Make your own: Water and Vineagar

Buy Natural Products: Shaklee Basic H

Bleach Substitute:

Make your own: White Vinegar and Baking Soda

Buy Natural Products: Nature Bright

All Purpose Cleaner:

Make your own:White Vinegar and Water

Buy Natural Products: Basic H

Degreaser:

Make Your Own: Baking Soda and Water

Buy Natural Products: Basic H or Get Clean Scour Off

Make your home safe for you and your family. Go through you cupboards, closets, and pantries. Throw out all of the items that are toxic and poisonous. Now either stock White Vinegar, Baking Soda, and Lemons or buy safe natural/organic products. Believe me you will feel better after you do this. White Vinegar is awesome for removing hard water stains….I have horribly hard water that stains everything! I keep a large jug of white vinegar around at all times.

Now that you have the cleaning products taken care of you can move on to personal care products. Did you know that your cosmetics probably contain the following…Formaldehyde, phenol, benzene, toluene, xylene. Then there are the parabens that are found in many personal care products. Parabens are preservatives found in about 90% of all cosmetics. There have been many studies linking parabens to cancer in lab animals. So not only are these products poisonous if ingested they are not good for you either. There are many options for paraben free products…Dr. Hauschka, Burt’s Bees, Weleda, and Shaklee Beauty Products.

Below is an excerpt from: Poison in the Home By Dr. George Grant, Toxicologist/Analytical Chemist/Microbiologist, Founder of the International Academy of Wellness www.academyofwellness.com

“More children under four die of accidental poisonings at home than are accidentally killed with guns at home. The average home today contains more chemicals than were found in a typical chemistry lab. Go into your kitchen and your bathroom and look under your sinks where you keep your cleaning and personal care supplies. What have you found? Window cleaner? Bleach? Dishwashing detergent? Shampoo? Toothpaste? If you read the label on toothpaste, it says not to swallow the paste!” For more of the article click here.

Why I Chose Shaklee

I am not a great sales person that is for sure. I am pretty quiet for the most part, especially around new people, so why did I choose to sell Shaklee products.

I chose Shaklee for many reasons. The number 1 reason is because I completely believe in there products. I am not interested in pyramid schemes, or just selling to sell. I only want to supply people with a product that I use, believe  in, and that can really help them. I want people to live a happy, healthy, and green life!

Everyday I turn on the news and hear about more and more health problems, many that could be prevented if people would begin to take care of themselves. I mean how difficult is it to grab a glass of water and swallow a couple of vitamins each morning? But how many people out there don’t do it? I know there are millions of vitamin companies out there and people don’t know which one to choose. Here is a testimony that may help you choose:

My husbands grandparents are 91 and 95 and still live in there home, go to church every Sunday, go to bible study every Thursday evening. Papa who is 95 actually still teaches to bible classes at the church. He also chops wood for the winter to heat there home. Papa is also no medication at all! If you ask them both of them will tell you the reason they are still doing so wonderful is that they take there Shaklee Vitamins everyday! And they have been for over 40 years.

Papa with his new John Deer tractor this summer!

Nana with one of her Great Grandson’s!

Another thing I love about Shaklee is that they were “Green” before the “Green” trend began. They have been creating “green” products for over 50 years! A quote from the Shaklee website “Every product that goes into every Shaklee bottle is designed to improve health, work without compromise, and be gentle on the planet.” I don’t know what else I could ask for.

There is also the Shaklee A Million Trees. A Million Dreams. project. Click here for more details. In 2009 the millionth tree was planted at the Shaklee Headquarters. And when you sign up “And to offset the carbon emissions of shipping the PAK, Shaklee will plant five trees!”

Shaklee has many products to chose from…vitmains, weight loss products, home and cleaning products, baby products, and beauty products. Click here to learn more about these products. And if you are interested in joining and sharing these wonderful product with your family and friends click here.

My Top 6 Shaklee Products

1. BASIC H Organic Super Cleaning Concentrate: I use this product all over my house to clean pretty much any surface. It can be used as an all-purpose cleaner, for windows and mirros, and as a degreaser! All of that and 1 16oz bottle can make up to 48 gallons of all-purpose cleaner!

2. B-Complex: This vitamin provides you with all 8 essential B vitamins! I always feel so much better when I take my b-complex in the morning, if the day goes by and I really feel like I am dragging it is usually because I have forgotton to take my B-Complex.

3. Vita-Lea (with or without Iron): Another great daily vitamin that has 23 essential vitamins and minerals. We have the with iron formula for me and the without iron formula for my husband.

4. All of the Shakleebaby Products: Diaper Rash Cream, Soothing Lotion, Gentle Wash, and Massage Oil…I love them all. They make my little guy smell and feel amazing! I would not use anything else on his precious skin.

5. Energizing Soy Protein: I prefer the natural vanilla, but it also comes in creamy cocoa for all of you chocalate lovers. This products provides a great boost of energy to get you through the day. Its great to mix with a glass of orange juice or add to a smoothy!

6. Enfuselle Eye Treatment: This eye cream is paraben free and provides your undereye skin with anti-aging botanicals and vitamin C. I love the cream because it reduces my dark circles and puffieness.

Shakleebaby Products Updated

Since my last post about the Shakleebaby products I have had the chance to use the other 2 items (massage oil and diaper rash cream) and they are awesome!

After traveling my little guy had his first diaper rash and was not too happy about it. I used the Shakleebaby diaper rash cream and in a day the rash was gone and I had a happy baby boy again!

I have used the massage oil a few times now. When he is fussy in the evening before bed I massage the oil on his belly, legs, and arms while he is nursing. The oil has a calming effect and makes his skin small and feel wonderful.

I love the Shakleebaby products, my next purchase will be the Shakleebaby multivitamin and multimineral powder…but I have to wait until the little guy is 6 months old. Once I get it and start using it I will give an update on how it works.
