Don’t become complacent about your weight this winter

By Dr Sandra Cabot

When the weather is cold and gloomy it’s easy to become complacent or even despondent about your weight. The fatty bulges and liver roll are snugly hidden under the bulky baggy clothes of winter; then when spring arrives you get a shock!
Well most people crave hot soups, hot chips and other high carb foods like bread and potatoes during winter and it’s fine to enjoy those things! But did you ever think that by just replacing one meal a day with a QuickLoss shake, you can prevent winter weight creeping up? Diane Stevens did – indeed she achieved more than that, Diane actually lost 11 kilograms during the colder months. See her testimonial below

QuickLoss is great because no matter what season of the year it is, it has so many features to help stoke up your metabolism!

Causes of a sluggish metabolism include –

  • Fatty liver – a healthy liver burns fat whereas a fatty liver stores fat
  • Less inclination to exercise when it's cold.  The less muscle you have on your body, the slower your metabolism
  • Syndrome X – this is a chemical imbalance that makes your body store fat and causes unstable blood sugar levels and strong cravings for carbohydrates
  • Toxic overload – causing your body to store toxins in the fat cells and the liver
  • Fatigue, which depletes our body of the energy to exercise
  • Deficiencies of minerals such as selenium and iodine, which cause a sluggish thyroid gland – the thyroid gland controls the metabolic rate

With all these factors in mind, I have formulated QUICKLOSS Meal Replacement and Diet plan to –

  • Make your weight loss and/or weight maintenance easier and less stressful
  • To provide your body with all the nutrients it needs to function efficiently

You may have found it hard to lose and/or keep weight off because of –

  • The abundance of fast foods high in unhealthy fats and sugar that tempt us
  • The lack of time to prepare healthy meals 
  • The lack of motivation you feel when weight loss is too slow
  • Depression, which takes away the motivation to eat well and exercise
  • Lack of support and ongoing professional advice – don’t forget you can phone our Health Advisory Service or email us anytime for help

 Special features of QuickLoss to assist your weight loss –

  • QuickLoss contains added chromium to help metabolism; QuickLoss reduces cravings for high carbohydrate foods
  • QuickLoss contains selenium and iodine – these minerals are needed for efficient thyroid function
  • QuickLoss contains a patented form of cactus fibre known as Neopuntia, which swells in your stomach and helps you to feel full and has the ability to bind with fat in your digestive tract, inhibiting its absorption into your body.  Neopuntia is a proven weight loss ingredient – see 
  • QuickLoss contains alginic acid, which swells up in the digestive tract, making you feel full and also absorbing toxins in your gut and taking them out of your body.  Alginic acid is derived from seaweed.
  • QuickLoss is naturally sweetened with fructose, glucose and xylitol.

I am a lady in my late 40's and realise that the risk of having health problems as I get older, is increased because of being overweight. I had tried meal replacement shakes some years ago, but apart from the unpleasant taste, found that I started having dizzy spells, so the little bit of weight I did lose came back immediately when I stopped.  Having a family, and working, means that I am time poor, and so decided to give Sandra Cabot's Quick Loss Meal Replacement a try.  I am delighted to say that I have had a steady weight loss, and have now lost 11 kilograms, just by replacing my lunch with Quick Loss and following the guidelines for my snacks and evening (family) meals.  Not only am I able to fit into my old jeans, that haven't been worn for a long time, but I am also receiving compliments from friends and work colleagues.  I certainly don't feel like I'm on a “diet”, and in fact, having my shake feels a little like indulgence, as I enjoy the flavour so much (Honeycomb Delight is my favourite).  The snack ideas for morning tea easily see me through til my shake at lunchtime, and the Quick Loss shake keeps me well satisfied til my evening meal.  I feel great, and it's been so easy.
