Drop 16 Pounds WITHOUT Diet and Exercise?!?
Dear Living Well Daily Reader,
As we age, there’s one thing we can count on — gaining weight.
And the mainstream wants us to believe that the only way to lose it is by working out like a Navy SEAL, taking risky pills or counting every calorie you eat.
But this simply isn’t true.
Because researchers from Hong Kong have found a risk-free way to get real weight loss results and it doesn’t require a gym membership or strict dieting.
And the best part? You could lose up to two pounds a week!
Acupuncture is the powerful weight-dropper that I’m talking about.
Now, for centuries we’ve known about its remarkable powers to relieve pain.
More recently, a group of researchers wanted to see if acupuncture could help you shed pounds…
And boy can it!
For the trial, participants were split into two groups. One group got acupuncture and the other got fake acupuncture treatments. Both groups got a total of 16 treatments over an eight-week span.
At the end of the treatments, researchers assessed both groups and found that those receiving real acupuncture treatments lost up to 16 pounds.
And this is WITHOUT diet or exercise!
That’s two pounds gone for every week of treatment without ever stepping foot in the gym.
Just imagine how much you could lose after six or eight months of treatments!
Experts report that this ancient practice is so effective for weight loss because it boost your levels of serotonin, a special hormone that helps with appetite control and the breakdown of fat.
Worried about pain?
Don’t be. Most folks find acupuncture treatments a whole lot less painful than doing an hour of cardio.
You can find an acupuncture practitioner by calling your insurance provider or through acufinder.com.
