‘Real food by FastCurelife’

Ed Cederquist and his wife, Dr. Caroline Cederquist, work together to combat weight loss with their Naples-based meal-delivery business, BistroMD what is marketed by Fastcurelife.

A board-certified bariatric physician, Cederquist medically treats patents suffering from weight-related health issues without surgery, and has practiced in the area for 18 years. Ed Cederquist assists his wife’s mission by providing a more nutritiously sound diet for clients who have difficulty preparing meals at home.

The task of eating healthily can become “a full-time job,” says Ed Cederquist — which creates opportunity for the business.

The company, which started with a handful of Dr. Cederquist’s clients in 2005, now offers chef-prepared, restaurant-quality entrees that are delivered frozen and ready to heat. They used $350,000 of their own capital in the first few years to fund the business. Now BistroMD ships more than 1 million meals each year to thousands of customers nationwide. Prices start at $119 per week for five days and go up to $179 for seven days of food and now Fastcurelife offer 25% discount for all BistroMD menue. The founders decline to disclose revenue figures.

The biggest challenge the company faces, one many fast-growth businesses face, is to keep up with its national growth strategy without diluting service or quality.

Logistics is one particularly pressing issue. Meals are cooked in small batches and sent out the following week. “Getting the right meals into the cooler once is easy,” chuckles Ed Cederquist. “Thousands of times a day isn’t.”

The recent opening of a packaging facility in Reno, Nev., is a $1.2 million investment intended to help tackle those issues for West Coast customers. The Cederquists own and operate the facility, with employees they trained at another warehouse.

“We’ve been growing at 28% over last year,” says Ed Cederquist. “We just try to keep it to a point where we can keep the quality, and keep the relationships we have with our clients without losing complete contact.”

A closely connected issue to logistics is food consistency.

The restaurant quality promise the company makes has to stand up to freezing and reheating. Says Ed Cederquist: “Making tender chicken using phosphates or nitrates is very easy, but not if it’s all-natural.”

His team at the Naples headquarters samples each batch from satellite commissaries in Atlanta, California, New York, North Carolina, Boston and Louisville, Ky. Recipes not up to par are donated to local food banks, and the chefs start over. The company has donated one batch of food, about 1,200 meals, over the past 12 months.

But the attention to detail pays off: Independent diet review companies rank BistroMD’s entrees first in blind tastings, which provide helpful testimony on its website.

Another challenge looms in competition from the behemoth of its industry, Nutrisystem. Cederquist, like a mom-and-pop grocery does against Wal-Mart, fights back on quality over quantity.

“For one, you have a phenomenal product, and two, you keep pointing out the differences,” says Cederquist. “We don’t use chemical preservatives or any type of artificial meat or fillers. It’s real food, exactly what you would buy or find at the farmers market.”

The Ultimate Reason, Why You Should Never Diet Like a Man

And today, I’m going to share what new research reveals is the exact reason why it’s so much more difficult for you to lose weight and keep it off compared to men.

And more importantly you’ll discovered a breakthrough tip used by women in this page to banish unwanted body fat that you can use to do the same by…

DRAMATICALLY

INCREASING YOUR FEMALE METABOLISM.

You’ll also see how this unusual tip allows you to strategically eat the foods you crave most, and still experience the slimmest, sexiest waistline of your life. Plus, you’ll also learn which common foods touted as “healthy” can make losing a single pound virtually impossible for women.

Now I totally get it if you think you’ve heard and tried it all when it comes to dieting and weight loss but I completely guarantee you’ve NEVER seen anything like this before and I promise you’re about to be absolutely amazed.

Listen, before we go any further let me assure you this has nothing to do with silly exercise machines, cardio, restrictive or pre-packaged diets, or whatever weird berry pill the diet industry is talking about these days. This is something completely different and you’re going to love it.

BnA
Julie Johnson – Payson, Utah, Weight loss 39 lbs, waist loss 9″ and hips loss 3.5″

Really quickly, a little tidbit about me you may not already know:

In the last 10 years, if you’ve taken any effective supplement by any of the world’s biggest brand names, chances are you’ve seen my work.

Now before you start thinking this tip has something to do with a supplement, let me stop you right there because it doesn’t.

I only mention this because I discovered this unique tip during the time I was consulting for the company that makes the number one selling weight loss supplement in the world for Women.

I was doing extensive research on female metabolism when I stumbled upon something so shocking, and so ground-breaking that I knew it could help make fat burning easier for women forever…

LISA’S WAY

Which is what I’ll be sharing with you in just a few moments. First, I’d like to introduce you to someone I’m very proud of, my sister Lisa because to be perfectly honest, she is the real reason I was even studying the female metabolism so passionately in the first place.

You see, Lisa has always been one of the most important women in my life. Ever since we were kids she’s always looked out for me and has been there for me when I needed anything. She really is the best sister a brother could ask for. And when my sister reached out to me for help with her weight, I felt like the worst failure in the world when I couldn’t help her.

You see, none of my degrees, experience or world class certifications gave me what I needed to help Lisa achieve the true, long term weight loss she deserved the way I’ve been fortunate enough to have been able to do for thousands of men across the globe including myself with the cutting edge programs I’ve authored.

And to see my sister whom I absolutely adore suffer with her health and negative self-image issues because of her weight was heart-breaking. It got to the point she seemed ashamed to even order food at restaurants. Yet, I sincerely believed with all of my heart if she could solve her weight problem, it would positively affect every part of her life and relationships like it did for me.

 
Lisaafter she had her child, weighing 200 lbs
 
Lisaafter her weight loss, weighing 147 lbs

Now our family comes from a long line of “bad genetics” and I know exactly what it feels like to hate the overweight reflection looking back in the bathroom mirror. And I would have given anything to have what worked for me work for Lisa. But it didn’t. And after Lisa had my niece Paige, things got even worse for her. She was tipping the scales at 210 pounds, which at 5 foot 1, was dangerously unhealthy… and emotionally she was totally depressed because she thought she had tried everything.

I remember it was a Monday afternoon, almost 2 years after Lisa had Paige, when I stumbled upon research leading to female fat loss loopholes unlike anything I’d ever imagined. Loopholes that would ultimately allow Lisa to shed a breathtaking 53 pounds of undesirable body fat!

However, as impressive as that was, what stands out the most to her family and friends is that her physical transformation led to a personal transformation that finally enabled her to live as the confident, proud, beautiful woman we always saw her to be.

Now listen closely and stay with me for what I’m about to share because this is the most important piece of information I’ve got for you, ok?

Science has now discovered that virtually everything to do with weight loss for both men and women is controlled by one master hormone.

This hormone that controls 100% of your body’s ability to burn fat is Leptin.

You may not know how Leptin works, so let me quickly explain:

High levels of Leptin speed up your metabolism and signal your body to burn fat and low levels of Leptin slow down your metabolism and signal your body to store fat. Those are the basics, now get ready for some surprising facts regarding Women and Leptin.

Researchers recently discovered that women naturally have twice as much of the fat burning hormone Leptin in their body compared to men.

That’s the good news!

However, brand new research revealed the following bad news that explains why women can struggle so much to lose unattractive body fat and keep it off:

1.

Women can be 3 times less responsive to Leptin’s signal to burn fat than men. This means even though women have a lot more Leptin they just aren’t using its fat burning potential. This condition is known as “Leptin Resistance”. An obvious sign of Leptin resistance is the soft, squishy, cottage-cheese looking fat found in your problem areas. However, Leptin Resistance is just 1 of 2 unique problems that kills female fat loss.

2.

The second unique problem women face with Leptin is that when dieting, your Leptin levels can drop twice as much and twice as fast compared to when men diet. As talked about, when Leptin drops your metabolism hits the brakes and slows right down. This is exactly why you experience frustrating weight loss plateaus on diets so much faster than men.

And have you ever suffered from that terrible rebound weight gain after you stop a diet?

Well that’s because your Leptin dropped significantly making your metabolism even slower than before you started the diet, resulting in fat piling back on even when you’re eating next to nothing.

So, to quickly recap:

Unique problem #1 you face when trying to lose weight is your “resistance” or “insensitivity” to Leptin’s signal to burn fat which is basically like having your body’s fat burning switch set to OFF.
And unique problem #2 you face is the rapid drop in your Leptin levels when you diet which slows down your metabolism substantially and leads to frustrating weight loss plateaus and massive rebound weight gain.

Not Fun!

Fact is evolution has made it much more difficult for women to lose weight by keeping Leptin’s signal to burn fat ‘disconnected’

Because of the demands of child bearing, and child nurturing. Your body doesn’t know or care about your desires for a sexy waistline that looks hot in those skinny jeans.

All it knows is the unattractive body fat you’re carrying provides stored energy and warmth to ensure protection and survival of the next generation.

With this being the case…

…guess what happens with your Leptin issues following pregnancy!?

Well, they get a lot worse which is exactly why losing that baby weight can be painstakingly difficult, as my sister Lisa knew all too well.

You see, your body is hardwired to fight a losing battle with Leptin every single time you attempt to lose weight. And I’m sure you can now truly understand why this is totally not your fault.

Yet, this is where it gets really interesting. Recall the good news researchers discovered:

You naturally have twice as much Leptin as a man.

This, as odd as it sounds…

…means you have much more fat burning potential than men… it’s just almost completely UNTAPPED… it’s like your genetics have been playing a cruel trick on you!


Yet, what if I told you there is a solution to turn the tables on your genetics by resetting the way your body utilizes Leptin to turn your fat burning switch all the way on, and never let it drop again.

Can you imagine how much faster and easier you’ll lose weight when you have your master fat burning hormone working in overdrive for you instead of against you? The difference is like night and day!

Can you picture how much firmer and flatter your stomach becomes and how much tighter and sexier you look and feel?

Well, you can make this your reality starting today just like all of the real, everyday women you’ve been seeing have. There is now a solution proven to deliver these spectacular results.

AND IT’S CALLED METABOLIC OVERRIDE

Metabolic override consists of simple, yet extremely powerful strategies that hold the key to unleashing your full fat burning potential that your genetics has kept locked away your whole life.

These totally unique strategies have transformed Lisa and her friends… and now countless hundreds of women have experienced the same shocking, life-changing results. The tried, true and proven metabolic override strategies have now been honed into one guaranteed plan for female fat loss.

I’d like to introduce you to what really is the future of female fat loss.

THE VENUS FACTOR

The Venus Factor is the first and only weight loss plan designed to dramatically increase female metabolism and bring out the sexy goddess in you by delivering fast, long term, enjoyable fat loss…

Without restricting the foods you crave most, without working yourself in some death trap contraption, and most certainly WITHOUT working against your body so your fat loss process becomes simple, and even ENJOYABLE.

This female fat loss blueprint will work for you even if you have little to no time, terrible genetics like Lisa and I, a super slow metabolism, a thyroid condition or even if you think you’ve tried everything.

Now, let me tell you what The Venus Factor is NOT so you know what you’re about to experience.

It is NOT another fad, restrictive, or difficult diet that inevitably results in:

  • Uncontrollable food cravings
  • Frustrating plateaus
  • Diminished energy and fatigue
  • A damaged, slower, fat storing metabolism

Or at best, temporary weight loss with piles of embarrassing rebound weight gain to follow.
No…

Generic diets for men have set your metabolism up to fail enough.

It’s time for a solution that truly works with your female metabolism instead of against it to ensure your success.

When your metabolism’s fat burning switch is turned on using The Venus Factor strategies that have been proven and perfected with thousands of women just like you, you can expect the exact opposite experience of other diets.

  • No food cravings
  • No plateaus
  • An astonishingly faster, fat burning metabolism
  • Fat loss from female problem areas like your stomach, hips, butt and thighs

All while your energy soars, your weight rapidly decreases and you finally have the freedom to claim the life and body you absolutely deserve.

The Venus Factor is a super easy to follow 12 week nutrition plan that shows you exactly what to do step by step to create a new, fat burning metabolism. You’ll discover things like:

  • Surprising foods that damage Leptin sensitivity and make losing even a single pound next to impossible for women. Watch how fast the weight falls off in the first 2 weeks of the program when you simply eliminate these processed and soy foods.
  • The one cheat food trick that spikes female metabolism and keeps your Leptin sky-high. This is the only way for women to burn fat around the clock… even when you’re sound asleep. Once you learn this secret, you’ll never look at fat loss the same way again.
  • The one vital nutrient for weight loss almost all women are exceptionally deficient in. Raise this one nutrient starting today and immediately increase your fat burning and skyrocket your energy levels.
  • The one odd herb recently proven to accelerate female fat loss by increasing Leptin sensitivity a whopping 52%!

And now what women find most remarkable:

The groundbreaking Venus Factor Virtual Nutritionist that shows you exactly what to eat and when for the next 12 weeks to disintegrate fat from your problem areas. Your Virtual Nutritionist is designed to help make every 10 pounds you lose look like 20 by burning fat from where you visually need to most.

As you can probably tell, The Venus Factor was developed to take female fat loss to another level. And fast. In fact, hundreds of women report inches vanishing from their problem areas within weeks and they have the startling pictures you’re seeing to prove it…

…which is amazing considering they’re experiencing these rapid results while still enjoying their favorite foods like pizza, pasta, ice cream, and chocolate at the perfect times to accelerate female fat loss.

Now look, before we go any further, it’s important for me to be 100% honest and upfront with you.

If you’re looking for that magic weight loss answer, or if you just want this week’s celebrity fad diet… or some gimmick deep down you already know will never work, The Venus Factor is not for you.

The Venus Factor is only for Women that are ready to put down the gimmick answers in order to follow a proven, flavorful step by step system for weight loss.

So, if you want the real answer to female weight loss…

…and if you want to get the bikini body you desire without damaging your metabolism, or spending endless hours in the gym and sacrificing your favorite foods or red wine to do it, then The Venus Factor isn’t just “a system” for you…

Liss

IT’S THE ONLY SYSTEM FOR YOU…

Now, you may believe a one of a kind system that delivers all of this will be extremely expensive.

And truth be told, it really should be considering the countless hundreds of women it’s transformed so quickly when nothing else worked. And of course when my hourly consulting fee for the biggest supplement companies in the world is over $500.00 it’s only natural to think a system that I’ve poured years of my life into creating might be unaffordable.

However, it’s not. I only felt right by making The Venus Factor affordable for every woman that needs to lose weight so don’t worry. I’ll get to the price in just a moment. First I need to make you aware of something.

You’re not just receiving The Venus Factor today. Nope, just for reading this page, I’m going to give you absolutely free of charge a special bonus valued at $297 called The Venus Factor Workouts to help you lose weight even faster.

This 12 week female fat loss exercise program is a perfect complement to your main program because most women that workout are unknowingly ruining their results using strategies designed for men instead of following a system proven to match a woman’s hormonal environment. This program uses unique exercises to match your hormonal state to target, strengthen and tone your softest areas, and eradicate cellulite from them while accelerating your fat loss results.

Inside you’ll discover things like:

  • Why your workout needs to be much shorter and way less intense than a man’s in order to burn fat optimally
  • The exact exercises women should never do because they actually stall fat loss and make cellulite worse. And you’ll be happy to know this includes eliminating long, useless cardio
  • Unique, easy exercises you can do from home to boost your metabolism, significantly increase Leptin sensitivity, kill cellulite, and maximize your fat loss
And listen, this program leaves no stone unturned. I’m including 143 premium video coaching lessons so you have every advanced tip and trick there is to maximize female fat loss. This is way beyond anything you could ever dream to find from a personal trainer. The entire Venus Factor Workouts and all of the 143 video coaching lessons are 100% free today so that I am with you every step of the way to ensure your success.

Now, as crazy as this sounds, I’m not even going to charge my 1 hour rate of $500.00 for The Venus Factor in which I’m also including this $297 bonus absolutely free for you today. Nope, I promised you I was going to make this affordable for every woman that needs to lose weight and I meant it. That’s why you’re not even going to pay half of that.

Your total investment to own The Venus Factor and The Venus Factor Workouts with all the premium video coaching lessons is just a one-time hugely discounted payment of only $97.

Now, I’m sure you’ll agree this offer is an unbelievable value and you’re probably ready to get started!

However, before you do, as another special thank you for checking out this limited time offer I’m going to do you one even better. Today, you’re not even going to pay the massively discounted price of $97. Through this special page only you’re going to get immediate access to everything for a one-time, single, secure payment of only $37.


THAT’S RIGHT… ONLY $37

Was is Right for Charles to Lose Weight without Going Hungry?

Should He Have Worked Out for an Hour a Day?

Or Should He Have Used “the Food of the Gods” to Ignite His Metabolism?

Nearly 7 out of every 10 Americans are overweight or obese.

Probably 90% of the rest of us wonder when it will be our turn.

And being overweight and obese is making so many of us so sick with heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, kidney disease, cancer and Alzheimer’s, to name just a few of the serious health problems… we may be the first generation of Americans to live shorter lives than our parents.

Charles of Houston, Texas, was one of them. He was obese and he had Type II diabetes. His doctor warned Charles that if he didn’t do something about his weight soon, he probably wouldn’t see his children get married—or hold his grandbabies. Because according to the US Centers for Disease Control, diabetes is the 7th leading killer of Americans… while making every other disease worse.

That wasn’t the first time Charles had heard that he’d needed to lose weight—or the first time he’d tried.

He’d done all the things we’re supposed to do. But he had to give up his long workouts when life got in the way.

He’d restricted his calories to the point that he got so hungry he just had to eat. A lot. So much so that he was embarrassed and ashamed. What he didn’t know was, that’s how your body normally fights back against starvation.

And then he’d eaten “healthy” food that was so bland and boring, his cravings were off the charts… and processed “diet” food that was so full of unpronounceable chemicals, he just knew it couldn’t be good for him… and he was right.

Probably most who us who have tried to lose a pound have had the same experiences.

But then Charles discovered that you don’t have to do those things to lose weight.

The Dirty Secret of the Big Food and Diet Corporations

Weight loss is much, much, much easier when we

  • Don’t do lots of long, slow, boring cardio.
  • Don’t starve ourselves.
  • Do eat real, natural food that we enjoy.

Magic?

Absolutely not. Science.

Mountains of scientific studies reveal that our bodies are designed for long, slow, boring cardio: the more of it we do, the easier it is for us. So we burn fewer calories. While going hungry just makes us want to eat until we overeat… the exact same high-calorie, high-energy foods we’ve denied ourselves.

When you work with your body, however, you can lose significant amounts of excess weight.

Without hunger, or killing yourself at the gym, or depriving yourself.

As Charles learned when he lost 40 pounds, almost effortlessly, in just six weeks. His doctor says his numbers are so good, he can stop spending $200 a month on his diabetes medication.

How? Charles started working with Wes Virgin, certified personal trainer and creator of the Fat Diminisher System and a leading expert in the field of scientific weight-loss.

You wouldn’t know it to look at him, but Wes struggled to like his own body—and he knows first-hand how traditional weight loss programs fail people. Then, as a soldier in Iraq, Wes saw how badly those programs were failing soldiers, whose lives depended on being fit… and yet they were often overweight, thanks to injuries or just the sheer stress of serving in a combat zone. So Wes drew on his personal experience to create a revolutionary approach to fat loss that worked…

Even for people who weren’t young or in great shape and who didn’t have a lot of time or eat the greatest food.

His experience training soldiers in Iraq gave Wes his passion for helping people look better, feel better, and get healthier. When he returned to civilian life, Wes realized he had a mission to share what he had learned about helping people lose weight.

Wes consulted with nutritionists and dietitians to create the Fat Diminisher System so it would work for almost everyone who isn’t in great shape, doesn’t have unlimited time, and enjoys eating good food…

Because if a program is easy, people do it.

Part One: You eat tasty, real food your body can actually use. Not weird, manufactured food-like items full of unpronounceable chemicals that make your body haywire. Then he shows you how to indulge your sweet tooth without sabotaging yourself. So you never go hungry or feel deprived.

Part Two: You take his Fat Diminishing Drink, which includes a major taste treat—a traditional “food of the gods” in ancient cultures—and is full of vitamins, minerals, and anti-oxidants. Most of us who are overweight don’t get nearly enough of these vital nutrients, which gently, naturally cleanse your body of toxins that slow your metabolism and clog your fat cells.

Part Three: Invigorating mini-workouts that will have you well on your way to the firm, sexy body you want. In just 60 minutes a weeknot a day. These short workouts are designed for both men and women, and they’re interesting and enjoyable, not boring and draining.

No hard-to-find ingredients, complicated recipes, or expensive equipment required.

And then there’s the powerful bonus of Wes himself, motivating and encouraging you, helping you totally reshape your body simply by taking care of yourself for a few minutes a day.

When Wes showed us his Fat Diminisher system, we realized how simple looking better, feeling better and having better health can really be. Because he makes them that simple.

Wes recently released the Fat Diminisher System for 50% off to a select, word-of-mouth clientele. Click here now to see if you can still take advantage of that exclusive discount. If you miss it, though, that’s OK, because Fat Dinimisher’s full price is still a terrific value.

Garcinia Cambogia: Safe for Weight Loss?

garcinia-cambogia-2015Pure Garcinia cambogia, a tropical fruit also known as the Malabar tamarind, is a popular weight-loss supplement. People say it blocks your body’s ability to make fat and it puts the brakes on your appetite. It could help keep blood sugar and cholesterol levels in check, too. You’ll find it in bottles on the shelf at the store as well as mixed with other ingredients in diet products.

Does it live up to its hype? Maybe a little, but it might not be worth it.

How It Works

The active ingredient in the fruit’s rind, hydroxycitric acid, or HCA, has boosted fat-burning and cut back appetite in studies. It appears to block an enzyme called citrate lyase, which your body uses to make fat. It also raises levels of the brain chemical serotonin, which may make you feel less hungry.

But actual weight loss results aren’t impressive. A review published in the Journal of Obesity found that people who took garcinia cambogia in studies lost about 2 pounds more than people who didn’t take it. The reviewers couldn’t say for sure that the weight loss was because of the supplement. It could have been from the lower-calorie diet and exercise programs the people in the studies typically followed. Better studies are needed to find out if HCA really helps people lose a lot of weight and keep it off.
Type 2 Diabetes and High Cholesterol

Garcinia cambogia may make it easier for your body to use glucose, the sugar your cells need for energy. Mice that got garcinia cambogia in one study had lower insulin levels than mice that didn’t. That’s another reason, besides weight loss, that people with diabetes are interested in it. However, if you’re taking garcinia cambogia along with a medication to control your blood sugar, your glucose could get dangerously low.

Some research has found that garcinia cambogia can also improve cholesterol levels, lowering triglycerides and LDL (the “bad” cholesterol) and raising HDL (the “good” cholesterol). But you shouldn’t use it if you’re already on a prescription for your cholesterol.

Garcinia cambogia may interact badly with:

    Asthma and allergy medicines such as Accolate and Singulair
    Diabetes medicines, including pills and insulin
    Iron, for anemia
    Pain medicines
    Prescriptions for psychiatric conditions
    Statins, drugs that lower cholesterol
    Warfarin, a blood thinner

You definitely don’t want to use it when you’re pregnant or nursing, or if you have kidney or liver problems.

To Buy or Not to Buy

Since study results are mixed, you should talk with your doctor to help you decide if taking garcinia cambogia is a good idea. Even if it’s safe, it may not help you lose much weight. It’s probably wiser to spend your money on healthy food or an exercise

More about the ‘Viking Diet’, Should we be on it?

Viking FoodYet another Scandinavian craze is set to be big in 2015. Not content on living Scandi, watching Scandi and dressing Scandi, we’re now set to eat Scandi, too. Multiple research studies have reportedly suggested that the Nordic countries enjoy the healthiest regional diet plan in the world.

Great, so this means we’ll be able to pop to Ikea for a meatballs meal every night, right?

Wrong (sadly).

The new diet (which is, actually, 11 years old,) was created by a collection of Danish chefs and nutritionists, who have concocted a 10-point-plan for eating Nordic.

    More fruit and vegetables every day
    More whole grain
    More food from the seas and lakes
    Higher-quality meat, but less of it
    More food from wild landscapes
    Organic produce whenever possible
    Avoid food additives
    More meals based on seasonal produce
    More home-cooked food
    Less waste

The diet is predominantly plant-based, with fish also making up a vital component, with meat eaten sparingly as long as its free range and organic. Other vital elements are canola oil, whole grains, fish cakes, lingonberries, moss and seaweed. You know, as long as they can be found in a wild landscape near you.

Does the nearest Sainsbury’s Local count as a ‘wild landscape’? We sure hope so…
