Lose 10-20 lbs during the holidays?!


Read what Sherry Brescia, author of GREAT TASTE NO PAIN has to say about a common problem of weight gain during the holiday season...

Take off 10-20 pounds during holidays
November is here, and that means the holiday season is
fast approaching.

It's a time to show caring, charity, generosity, and
kindness to our fellow humans.

It's also a time for FOOD, glorious food!  All those get-
togethers, dinners and parties with all that delicious

...and for many people, that means packing on the pounds.

Sadly, I've heard scores of people say they dread the
approach of the holidays because they know they'll put on
weight and have trouble taking it off.

Know what?

It doesn't have to be that way.

It IS possible to maintain a consistent weight even
through the holidays.

You see, when you have doable standards for eating that
you will not break and live every day feeding your body the
way it was designed to be fed, excess pounds are never,
ever an issue. 

Here's why:

Your body is alkaline by design.  All of your organs and
systems work their best (perfectly, actually) in an
alkaline environment. 

When your body is too acidic, it doesn't function properly
and it begins to literally break down and fall apart.  And
you get pain, sickness, disease and...obesity.

So if you are hurting, sick or overweight, you are acidic. 


Eating 50-70+% alkaline foods and combining your foods in
the way that keeps digestive acid low is the key to
holidays (and every day) without extra poundage. 

When you eat foods that are digested with complimentary
enzymes in the stomach, digestion is a snap and your food
glides through the intestines smoothly. 

No more toxic waste build-up.

No constipation

No bloating. 

This means a trimmer, sexier you.

Plus, when you don't have overproduction of acid in your
stomach, you'll absorb more of the nutrients from your
foods, so you'll only feel hungry when you need more
nutrients, not when your stomach is empty.

In Great Taste No Pain, I'll show you the foods to eat and
the combinations to eat them in so you can feel good at
your ideal weight.  You can get it here: 



Hear remarkable success stories where people have lost so
many inches off their entire bodies it's just astounding:




When correctly combining your foods is your way of life,
you CAN indulge in a dessert, some eggnog or other pleasure
and not worry about packing on pounds. 

I NEVER deprive myself on special occasions or holidays.
I’m looking forward to the Thanksgiving pumpkin pie and
Christmas cookies already.

But because it’s a once in a while thing, not an every day
thing, I’ll weight the same on January 1st as I do now.   

Treat your body right 12 months a year and it will return
the favor with health, energy and forgiveness for your

How NOT to get SICK for the next 8 weeks!

With the holidays fast approaching, it’s natural to
feel more stress than usual.

So you are now more succeptible to every virus going
around and to getting infections you’d never get
any other time of year.

Here’s why that happens:

When your nervous system picks up signs of emotional or
mental distress, it signals for the release of stress
hormones and special chemical messengers (called

These neurotransmitters speed to different areas of your
body and cause various reactions.

That’s why your heart rate increases when you’re scared or
your stomach gets rumbly when you’re anxious.


These stress hormones can also lead to headaches, high
blood pressure and digestive disorders (like IBS).

They also affect your gut flora, and that’s where 80% of
your immune system is.

For example, strains of the harmful bacteria E. coli grow
faster in an environment that contains the stress hormones
epinephrine (adrenaline) or norepinephrine (noradrenaline).

In addition, some scientists believe that when we’re
stressed, our nervous system “talks” to our gut microbes,
telling certain (bad) ones to multiply and other (good)
ones to limit their growth.

Having a greater concentration of harmful bacteria in your
intestines makes you more susceptible to bacterial
infections and viruses of all types. This happens for two

1- You now don’t have enough good bacteria to fight off
the dangerous pathogens you ingest
2- The bad bacteria have eaten away at your gut wall and
made it porous, so dangerous toxins can now seep out and
travel all through your body, making you ill

Plus having more harmful bacteria in the gut also affects
your immune system’s regulatory T cells. That means your
immune system will be less effective, leading to increased
inflammation (and pain) all over your body.

And heaven help you if you do get sick and take
antibiotics. While they will certainly help kill your
infection, they’ll also cause the bacterial balance in your
gut to even further out of whack…

…which means that you’re likely to get sick AGAIN very

It’s essential to keep your gut flora balanced all year
long, but especially around the holidays with all the added
stressors in your days.

PS: Dale is feeling better inside and out with Super Shield:


Hi Sherry,

I have Rosacea and used to have to take low doses of
antibiotics and put cream on my face…a life sentence.

After one month of Super Shield (which I took for other
reasons) I noticed to my suprise my Rosacea just cleared up
without any other meds.

Additionally I have more energy and as a wedding
photographer I need it. Even my Crohns is much better.

Please don’t stop making Super Shield. I’m a customer for
life and I’m sharing this with all my friends.

Thanks, Dale W.
