Orange County Mega-Meals: Don’t Eat The Whole Thing!

Orange County Mega-Meals: Don't Eat The Whole Thing!

It’s no wonder that many Mission Viejo children and teens struggle with weight issues. What is considered a ‘normal’ food portion has been getting bigger and bigger. In some cases, as with gargantuan Mission Viejo fast food soft drinks and Orange County Costco muffins-on-steroids, it is absolutely ridiculous. And extremely unhealthy.

The findings from three large national surveys demonstrate:

‘Hamburgers have expanded by 23 percent; a plate of Mexican food is 27 percent bigger; soft drinks have increased in size by 52 percent, snacks, whether they be potato chips, pretzels or crackers, are 60 percent larger.’1

Mission Viejo restaurants and Orange County food and beverage manufacturers are not the only ones sabotaging our children. Portion sizes have increased in homes, also.

If Mission Viejo parents are going to help their children maintain a healthy weight, learning proper portion sizes is critical. If we don’t know the size of a healthy portion, how can we teach our children?

The Mayo Clinic website has a great slide show that helps Orange County parents and other children’s health advocates understand what ‘4 ounces’ or a ‘half cup’ actually looks like. You can see it here: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/portion-control/NU00267

More Weight Loss Shake Recipes For Mission Viejo

Orange County Chocolate Milkshake Diet I love the taste of the Xocai ProteinMeal Shake, however, sometimes I like to mix things up a bit and try new flavors. In Orange County, I use the Xocai weight loss shake as a base for making healthy high-antioxidant Mission Viejo diet smoothies. You can download additional Xocai ProteinMeal recipes from the MXI Chocolate website.

Here are some of the Weight Loss Smoothie recipes and my local Mission Viejo Xocai chocolate shake review. Each recipe needs to be blended thoroughly in a blender or food processor.

The Xo and Tell: 1 cup water, 1/2 cup X ProteinMeal Shake, 1/4 cup frozen blueberries, 1/2 frozen banana, 1 cup chopped ice. Tastes like a seven dollar Mission Viejo juice bar smoothie but much healthier.

X Mocha Frappe: 1 cup cold black coffee, 1/2 cup Xocai ProteinMeal Shake, 1 cup chopped ice, 2 fresh mint leaves. Riverside coffee lovers will enjoy this high antioxidant version. The mint gives it an interesting twist.

The X Monkey: 1 cup almond milk, 1/2 cup Xocai ProteinMeal Shake, 1 TB chunky peanut butter, 1/2 frozen banana, 1 cup chopped ice. If you are a Mission Viejo PB fan, you’ll this concoction. You can find Orange County almond milk at Los Angeles health food stores or at Orange County grocery stores with large health food sections.

The Chocolate Orange Cream-sicle: 6 ounces water, 1/2 cup MXI Chocolate ProteinMeal Shake, 2 ounces almond milk, 1 banana, 1 cup chopped ice, 2 drops orange essential oil. Tastes like a Orange County Roxberry Orange Creamsicle smoothie. This flavor made me very nostalgic–I used to live on creamsicles all summer long as a child. The banana boosts the potassium content.

Xo-Good: 1/2 cup water, 1/2 orange juice, 4 chunks frozen mango, 1/2 banana, 1/2 cup Xocai Weight Loss Shake. If you are a Mission Viejo mango freak, you will find this mango-licious.

Give me a call if you are interested in losing weight without feeling empty or hungry. The Xocai Protein Shake is a terrific way to do it!

Lose Weight Eating Chocolate?

Orange County Dark Chocolate Diet In June, Xocai began a 12-week pilot study to test the new High-Antioxidant Wellness System. There are 50 subjects, males and females, from all over the country, ranging in age from 26-76. Each participant wants to lose at least 20 pounds (and some up to 100). As of the halfway point (July 30) the subjects were on target to reach their weight-loss goals.

The Xocai High-Antioxidant Wellness System Plan is as follows:

  • Substitute two meals a day with the X ProteinMeal Replacement Shake.
  • Eat three pieces of Xocai chocolate and other healthy snacks.
  • Eat one high-protien/complex carbohydrate meal.
  • 1,200 calorie limit for women, 1,500 calorie limit for men.
  • Exercise regularly.
  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Sleep 7-8 hours a night.
  • Keep a food diary.
  • Report weekly in an accountability phone call.

As of July 30, the group had lost a total of 1,000 pounds! According to MXI, the Xocai parent company:

“The really exciting news is they are full of energy, have no muscle aches, no longer experience carbohydrate cravings, and feel better than they have ever felt.

They are even having a hard time consuming the required daily calories because they feel full and have no hunger. Everyone is losing weight and abdominal inches without even feeling like they’re on a diet. When asked if they would stop the protein shakes, their response is they ‘could not live without it.’ When they look over their previous dieting experiences and food intake, they realize why they were gaining and not losing weight.

By recording and reporting their total daily calorie intake, they’ve had great success in controlling their calorie intake and remaining compliant with the weight-loss protocol. The shakes provide the necessary proteins, fats, carbohydrates, fiber, and vitamin and minerals, which give the participants two nutrient-rich meals and helps them avoid the consumption of empty calories. To date, not a single participant has dropped out of the study, which is unheard of in clinical studies. The participants are ecstatic with the success they are experiencing.”

If you want to lose weight and increase your energy, the Xocai High-Antioxidant Wellness System Plan can help you also! Call me at (949) 458-7451 to order the Xocai weight-loss products. I share Xocai with interested people in Mission Viejo, Orange County , Riverside , Los Angeles, and Orange County.

Are You Dieting in Mission Viejo? Is Your Diet a Problem?

MLM Scam? Not Xocai. Does it seem like your Orange County exercise program has lost its effectiveness? Are you trying to lose weight by working out regularly at our local Orange County gym, but have hit a plateau?

Perhaps the problem is your Riverside diet. To successfully lose weight, Orange County exercisers need to carefully manage their eating as well as their workout routine.

When I discuss healthy eating with many Los Angeles dieters, I usually hear something like this: “But I can’t give up chocolate!” or “If I work out hard enough, can’t I enjoy my chocolate?”

That’s when I make their day by telling them about Xocai healthy dark chocolate. Xocai is the only weight-loss chocolate sold in Mission Viejo.

Pure, cold-processed cacao (the main ingredient in Xocai) is a natural appetite suppressant. Cacoa has been used by many cultures for centuries to control hunger. Xocai uses the healthy cacao without adding the unhealthy ingredients that would sabotage cacao’s appetite-suppressant and heart-healthy properties.

But doesn’t Xocai healthy dark chocolate contain fats? Yes, Xocai contains a moderate amount of monounsaturated fat. This is the same type of fat in olive oil; the ‘good fat’. Many scientists and cardiologists believe that this type of fat increases the HDL (good) cholesterol.

You can see http://thehealthychocbiz.com/ for more detailed information about Xocai healthy chocolate .

Weight Loss Chocolate in Mission Viejo

Weight Loss Chocolate in Mission Viejo Jeanette Brooks may not yet be famous in Mission Viejo, but she probably will be in the near future. Why? Because of Jeanette Brooks, Orange County and Riverside chocolate lovers have a healthy chocolate option. It’s called Xocai.

Xocai healthy chocolate products are new on the health scene in Orange County but they are quickly gaining popularity.

I’m Linda Acker. Jeanette Brooks is the co-founder of Xocai, the original antioxidant chocolate manufacturer. I sell Xocai Weight Loss Chocolate in Riverside and Orange County . I am living proof that Xocai healthy chocolate is not only ‘non-harmful’ (though that would be a significant fact on its own) it is ‘health enhancing’. My health is improving as I regularly enjoy Xocai Chocolate every day.

Jeanette Brooks and Xocai are the real thing; She was the first to create weight loss chocolate products with her former company, Pure De-Lite, and things have been getting better ever since. With Jeanette Brooks’ leadership, XoCai healthy chocolate has evolved beyond Pure De-Lite’s impressive products.

Xocai was the first to add acai berries to cacao. Acai berries are packed with nutrition. It’s no wonder that ace berries can be found in the leading nutritional supplements available in Los Angeles and Orange County . However, only Jeanette has paired acai with chocolate. And it’s a match made in heaven.

If your mouth is watering for chocolate and you’re also craving supplemental income, join me at my next healthy chocolate meeting for a fun Xocai review. You will be able to try a sample of Variety box and learn about Xocai network marketing secrets.

Lose Weight in Mission Viejo with Chocolate

Mission Viejo Xocai Review Hi, this is Linda Acker of Mission Viejo with news about Xocai’s X-ProteinMeal Replacement Shake. In the successful Orange County Xocai weight loss pilot study, participants replaced 2 meals daily with the X-ProteinMeal Replacement Shake.

The X-ProteinMeal is Orange County’s first cacao-based, high-antioxidant, high-flavonoid, high-protein meal replacement. Instead of telling you only what Mission Viejo Xocai has to say about the X-Protein Shake, let’s see what some non-affiliated organizations say about the key ingredients:

Cacaoweb says:

“Cocoa beans contain polyphenols with antioxidant properties which are health beneficial. Flavonoids also reduce the blood’s ability to clot and thus reduces the risk of stroke and heart attacks.”

Cleveland Clinic says:

“Flavonoids help protect plants by shielding them from environmental toxins and helping repair damage. When we consume plant-based foods rich in flavonoids, it appears that we also benefit from this ‘antioxidant’ power. Antioxidants are believed to help the body’s cells resist damage caused by free radicals. When the body lacks adequate levels of antioxidants, damage from free radicals occurs and leads to increases in LDL (‘bad’)-cholesterol oxidation (oxidized LDL-cholesterol hurts the arteries) and plaque formation on the walls of the arteries.”

Though some Los Angeles folks think of Xocai chocolate as an MLM scam, there are plenty of Orange County and Riverside dieters who are losing weight with the Xocai chocolate diet.

Is Chocolate a Diet Food for Orange County?

Orange County Xocai Scam When successful Orange County dieters reach their target weight, they often let down their guard. “Wow! I did it! Now I can relax.” Unfortunately, most Orange County and Riverside folks who lose weight gain much of it back when they revert to past habits. Does that mean Mission Viejo people who want to maintain a healthy weight have to always be on a diet? Well, it depends on how you define the word ‘diet’.

If you are a Los Angeles chronic dieter who gains weight by eating normally, then; yes, you do need to manage your eating habits to avoid the yo-yo cycle.

Fortunately, you can create a new ‘normal’ by changing your unhealthy habits into healthy ones. What if you could maintain your desired weight by eating healthy chocolate? If chocolate is already a part of your ‘normal eating pattern’ then all you have to do is make sure you are eating antioxidant chocolate. Xocai manufactures the healthiest weight-loss chocolate in the world.

Xocai healthy chocolate satisfies the cravings that can pack on pounds. If you are like most Riverside woman or men who are looking for a weight-loss solution, you will be far more successful with chocolate than with celery.

Unhealthy chocolate may have contributed to the problem for many in the Orange County area, but healthy antioxidant chocolate can solve the problem.

I am Linda Acker, an independent Xocai distributor in Mission Viejo. If you have never tried Xocai weight-loss chocolate, you have a delicious surprise waiting for you.

Call me at (949) 458-7451 to sample the best-tasting ‘diet food’ available in Orange County.
