Are Acidic Foods Making You Fat?


Along with feeling good about yourself, an ideal body weight is a major factor in maintaining good health. If you are struggling to lose unwanted pounds, The AIM Companies™ has the answer for successful weight loss.

One important thing to consider is your body pH, which is greatly affected by your nutritional choices. For example, the foods you eat can have an acidifying or an alkalizing effect on your body.

Acidity has a negative impact on all of your body systems. One of the harmful results is that your body needs to add protective fat. If you do not reverse body acidity, it is harder to lose weight.

The Balancing Act of BarleyLife®

To get your body pH in balance, simply add BarleyLife® to your daily nutritional intake. You are not going to find a better whole-food concentrate for providing greens that neutralize an acidic body environment.

With a natural source of vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients (plant medicines), enzymes, antioxidants (cancer fighters) and chlorophyll (healer of sick cells), BarleyLife® can be your first step of nutritional support for reaching your ideal body weight.

In two servings, fit 'n fiber® contains 14 grams of total fiber. According to the Institute of Medicine's Dietary Reference Intake for fiber, most men should get 38 grams and most women at least 25 grams each day to gain all the health benefits, including weight management. It is much easier to achieve these daily recommendations with fit 'n fiber®.

If you are trying to lose weight, eat high-fiber foods and supplement with fit ’n fiber®. These dietary changes help you control hunger pangs, allowing you to resist more food than your body actually requires. A high-fiber intake fills you up without filling you out with unwanted pounds. Fiber makes you feel full, sending a message to your brain that you have had enough to eat.

Controlling the number of calories you get is one of the most effective ways of losing weight.

A vegetable source of protein that provides 12 grams of protein per serving is ProPeas®. Protein is a key component to weight management. Like fiber, protein contributes to feeling that you have had enough to eat. And it is essential for building lean muscle mass.

ProPeas® provides protein from peas - an alkaline food that contributes to a healthy body pH.

By mixing fit ’n fiber®, ProPeas® and BarleyLife® together in a smoothie, you have a high-fiber, high-protein beverage that fills you up - without a huge increase of calories.

This healthfully delicious combo was field tested by Ron Wright, AIM President, CEO and co-owner, who lost twenty-five pounds by making it his regular morning smoothie.

Ron also made diet modifications. He reduced his bread and sugar intake, while eating mostly fresh fish and vegetables.

The AIM Weight Loss Pack provides the nutritional support to help you lose weight the healthy way with whole-food concentrates and natural health products. It contains ProPeas®, fit ’n fiber® and GlucoChrom™, a unique combination of trace minerals and herbs that increases the effective actions of insulin and helps the body to metabolize carbohydrates and fats.

This natural health product provides chromium - a trace mineral that enhances insulin action - along with vanadium citrate, Gymnema sylvestre leaf extract and bitter melon.

Together, these natural ingredients provide a potent combination for increasing the effective action of insulin so that your cells have complete access to blood sugar for producing energy.

Combined with BarleyLife®, the weight loss pack helps to:
  • Reduce your appetite 
  • Maintain healthy blood sugar levels 
  • Build and maintain healthy muscle 
  • Decrease LDL cholesterol levels 
  • Increase lean muscle mass and decrease body weight
This combination of whole-food concentrates and nutritional supplements is naturally low in sugar, which has an acidifying effect on your body, so all four products contribute to maintaining a healthy body pH.

Remember, acidity leads to difficulty in losing weight. Make it easier on your body to shed those extra pounds, with AIM's natural solutions for weight management.
