The "Diet Free ... At Last!" Health & Lifestyle e-Newsletter is dedicated to keeping you updated on important health and weight-loss related issues...

So what exactly is the Diet Free ... At Last! Weight Loss Program?

As the name suggests, this is a Weight Loss Program ... but with a BIG difference!  Unlike those other unhealthy weight loss diet plans, this program is dedicated to teaching you how to lose weight in a safe and healthy way. 

So What Makes the Diet Free ... At Last! Weight Loss Plan Different From Others?

Good question ...

The Diet Free ... At Last! Weight Loss plan is not like those other unhealthy diets -- it's not a diet, it's based on healthy eating and balanced nutrition that will help you to lose weight and fat and keep it off ... forever!

  1. The Diet Free ... At Last! program does not promise you will lose the weight FAST.  Why not?  Because the faster you lose the weight, the higher your chances are of gaining it all back just as FAST!  (Not only that, but many of these diets, by not focusing on healthy eating practices, actually trigger different health conditions like gallbladder disease, fatty liver, cellulite, candida, leaky gut syndrome, essential fatty acid deficiency and more!  Click on the links below to see what symptoms these conditions have.)

  2. This program is focused on helping you to lose weight in a healthy, slow steady way.  I am more interested in helping you to, not only lose weight, but to improve your health in the process ... and you CAN do that if you choose to lose weight by eating a healthy, balanced diet. 

  3. When you lose weight too quickly on these unhealthy diets, you will be left with loose, sagging skin that is prone to wrinkling.  On this program, you will lose weight in a slow steady way, which will decrease the amount of loose, sagging skin you will have.  Also, there are many foods on this program that are specifically targeted towards improving your skin tone and reducing loose, sagging skin and wrinkles.

  4. These "lose-weight-fast" programs are too restrictive and are famous for triggering yo-yo dieting and intense food cravings.  Click here for important information on why you shouldn't "count calories" restrictively.  The Diet Free ... At Last! program helps you to stop food cravings by teaching you what causes food cravings, and then teaching you how to eat a healthy diet that will stop food cravings.  (As a matter of fact, this program will teach you the "7 Miracle Foods + 1" that make all the difference in controlling food cravings.)

  5. When you follow these other unhealthy weight loss programs, you are always hungry.  With the Diet Free ... At Last! Weight Loss plan, you're encouraged to eat lots of healthy snacks ... which are natural appetite suppressants. (And yes, you can even eat fat!  Imagine snacking -- guilt-free!)

  6. Following an unhealthy diet that is too restrictive causes your metabolism to slow down.  This program focuses on losing fat and conserving muscle mass at the same time.  This speeds up your metabolism ... and your fat burning machine, making it much easier to lose weight and fat and maintain your ideal weight forever.   

  7. This program is specifically targeted to anyone who is diabetic or insulin resistant and will decrease and stabilise blood sugar levels in a safe and natural way. 

  8. This weight loss plan stops yo-yo dieting ... changing your lifestyle to incorporate healthy eating means you never have to follow unhealthy diets again ... leaving you truly, Diet Free ... At Last!

But there is one more difference the Diet Free ... At Last! Weight Loss Program has over other diets ... and it is the most important one of all...

What a lot of people do not realise is that in many cases, their weight problems are not just caused by overeating ... Did you know that in many cases there is a physiological, biological, medical condition that is causing the weight gain ... and triggering yo-yo dieting? Many people look at obesity and weight issues as being a condition in and of itself ... whereas in many cases, the obesity is actually a symptom of a medical condition.

Yes, that's right ... there could well be a medical condition that is causing you to gain weight and making it very hard to lose weight.  And if that's the case, imagine being able to manage this problem, lose the excess weight and improve your health in the process!

Here is just a short list of the possible health conditions that could be causing you to gain weight and trapping you in a vicious cycle of weight gain ... (you can click on the links to check out these conditions)...

The Diet Free At Last! program teaches you the 7 Strategies that help you to manage these conditions and improve your health ... and lose weight, fat and inches in the process!  For more information on this program, click here

Article:  Anti-aging:  Is it really possible?

Although it is obviously not possible to turn the clock back entirely, we can take many steps now to ensure that not only do we slow down the aging process, but we can also reverse many of the signs of aging that we may presently be experiencing.

The biggest key in the fight against aging is of course our diet and nutrition.  The old adage, "you are what you eat" is absolutely true!  It is impossible to expect to be healthy and vital if we are not eating the nutrients we need to keep our bodies performing at its best.

I truly believe that the increase in lifestyle diseases that we are presently seeing is in great part due to poor diets and junk food.  It is very important to try to increase the amount of whole foods that we eat and decrease the amount of processed foods that we eat.  Processed foods have almost no nutrients left in them ... they are considered "empty calories".  But even worse than that, the preservatives, additives and chemicals that are in these processed foods interfere with many bodily functions including hormones.  These chemical toxins are called "xenoestrogens" and they often trigger a condition called "Estrogen Dominance".  For more information on Estrogen Dominance, click here.

The hormonal imbalances caused by Estrogen Dominance have many negative effects on the body and can make you feel a lot older by triggering many symptoms like poor memory, "foggy brain", weight gain and difficulty losing weight, increased facial hair, decreased sex drive, vaginal dryness, darkened skin pigmentation, water retention and much, much more.  Estrogen Dominance also increases the risk of many lifestyle diseases like cancer, fibrocystic breasts, breast cancer, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and much more.

Estrogen Dominance is much more common than people think, thanks to the world we live in.  And it is happening to women at younger and younger ages, even to women in their twenties or thirties! So how do you combat estrogen dominance?  The Diet Free ... At Last! Program devotes a whole section to how to combat Estrogen Dominance, so since I don't have the room here to go into great detail, I will just outline the 2 most important ones:

  1. Ask your physician to test your hormonal levels and if your Progesterone levels are too low, use Natural Progesterone Cream HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy) to rebalance your hormone levels.

  2. If you are overweight, lose the excess weight since this triggers a vicious cycle of hormonal imbalances and weight gain, especially in the abdominal area.

But of course, how you lose weight is just as important, if not more, than just losing weight.  If you lose weight following unhealthy weight loss diets, you could be unbalancing your hormones even more.  The better method is to lose weight in a slow, steady fashion by eating healthy, nutritious food and NOT starving yourself. 

The "Diet Free ... At Last!" Weight Loss Program teaches what foods to eat to trigger amazing relief from Pre-menopause and menopause symptoms like hot flashes, and "foggy brain" ... and just as importantly, how to lose weight, without food cravings ... and keep it off, forever!

Losing weight isn't the only advantage you get following this program.  Check out these little-known, powerful antiaging secrets you will learn with this program:

  • One of the most important benefits of following the "Diet Free ... At Last!" Weight Loss Program is that it reduces insulin and improves insulin resistance ... ultimately decreasing the risk of Diabetes and Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS).  And did you know that Insulin is a major culprit in weight gain? Click here for more information on Insulin Resistance

  • It also helps to control blood sugar levels and Type II Diabetes 

  • This program teaches the secret to increasing levels of the antiaging hormones melatonin, serotonin and beta-endorphin through natural means ... proper nutrition instead of drugs ... 

  • This program also helps to promote antiaging by improving the immune system through Candida eradication, controlling food intolerances, improving liver function ... and much more

  • This program decreases free radical production through proper nutrition, which is a powerful antiaging technique

  • Another powerful antiaging secret is to support your liver and liver function ... if your liver works better, your body detoxifies more efficiently, which improves all areas of your health (including cellulite reduction the natural way)

  • This program also teaches you the secret to speeding up metabolism and increasing fat burning capabilities

  • It also helps to promote antiaging by lowering cholesterol and triglycerides to healthy levels

  • By teaching how to manage stress, this program prevents adrenal exhaustion ... and helps to increase production of DHEA, a hormone known for reversing the aging process

And here is an important factor that many people don't think about when they decide to lose weight following unhealthy fast weight loss diets:  the faster you lose weight, the bigger the chances that you will be left with loose, sagging skin!  This weight loss program decreases the chances of having loose, sagging skin, not only because you lose weight in a slow, steady way, but also because this program has many strategies that are aimed at promoting healthy, firm skin tone.  A couple of examples of these strategies are:

  1. Eating "good" fats as opposed to "bad" trans-fats

  2. Eating in a healthy way that supports your liver function and naturally detoxifies your liver

To help you to reverse the signs of aging and to reduce the risk of many lifestyle diseases which would decrease your quality of life, the Diet Free ... At Last! Program includes 3 e-books that have been written with this purpose in mind:

  1. The Diet Free ... At Last! Weight Loss Program e-book.  This e-book focuses on exploring different health conditions including hormonal imbalances that trigger weight gain and teaches how to overcome these conditions to lose weight in a safe and healthy way.

  2. The "Learn How Stress Is Making You Fat!" e-book is a free bonus that focuses on how stress triggers fat gain and gives strategies on how to manage stress in your life.

  3. The "Discover the 33 Secrets to Anti-aging & Weight Loss!" e-book is another free bonus that focuses on how to reverse aging and improve your health and quality of life.  Click here for more information on this e-book...


"Miracle Food" of the month:   Salmon and other Omega-3 fish

The biggest health benefit of salmon is caused by high levels of Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids.  Omega-3 fats are essential to our good health and since our bodies cannot manufacture it, you must get it from your diet.  Other fish that are also high in Omega-3 are tuna, sardines, and mackerel. 

There are many different health benefits you can get from fish, especially salmon ... the following is just a short list:

  • Salmon is a high quality protein, rich in Vitamin A and carotenoids, complex B Vitamins and Vitamin D

  • Research has shown salmon reduces the risk of many types of cancer, as well as reducing the risk of heart disease

  • Salmon is low in saturated fat, reducing the risk of heart disease

  • Salmon is high in Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids, which has the following benefits...

    • Has an anti-inflammatory effect

    • Reduces bad cholesterol

    • Helps to prevent osteoporosis

    • Helps to improve immune system function

    • Helps to promote weight loss

    • Helps to promote soft, silky skin with less wrinkling
    • Promotes strong, healthy nails
    • Promotes luxurious, thick and healthy hair
    • Increases fat-burning capabilities resulting in weight loss
    • Improves insulin function
    • Prevents age-related macular degeneration
    • Improves symptoms of food intolerance (many people have food intolerances to wheat and dairy and don't even know it!)
    • Improves hormone function
    • Lowers cholesterol and triglyceride levels
    • Increases good eicosanoids and prostaglandins which: promotes immune function, decreases inflammation, and decreases the risk of strokes, cancer, heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and triglyceride levels, obesity and PMS.
    • And most importantly, it eliminates food cravings, particularly for fatty foods, and controls your appetite. This is so important because with the food cravings gone, following a healthy eating program becomes naturally easy and effortless.

The following are some of the conditions and symptoms that are triggered by a deficiency of Omega-3 essential fatty acids:

  • insulin resistance

  • diabetes

  • heart disease

  • stroke

  • cancer

  • high blood pressure

  • asthma

  • macular degeneration

  • depressed immune function

  • autoimmune disorders

  • depression

  • dry, flaky skin

  • wrinkles and sagging skin

  • dry, brittle nails

  • lackluster hair

  • fatigue

  • constipation

  • joint pain

  • foggy brain

  • poor memory

This is a pretty impressive list of benefits derived from one humble food.  I think it may be time for us to rethink adding salmon and fish to our daily diet and to find fun and interesting recipes to jazz up our taste buds, like the following delicious recipe for Poached Salmon, so quick and easy and yet you can serve it even as a "gourmet" meal! ...

Recipe of the month: Poached Salmon

1 salmon fillet                                                Salt & Pepper, to taste

1 cup orange juice or tropical juice                    Fresh basil or lemongrass                                 


  1. Place all ingredients in a skillet over medium heat. 
  2. Cover and simmer gently for 7 8 minutes or until salmon is cooked through.
  3. Remove fish, simmer liquid for a few minutes to reduce, or add a little cornstarch mixed in cold water* to thicken into a sauce to pour over fish. 
  4. Serve immediately with lemon wedges

* Add 1 tablespoon of cornstarch to 1/4 cup of cold water, stir until all dissolved and add to simmering juice, continue to simmer until thickened.


Well, that's it for now.  Hope you've enjoyed this e-Newsletter as much as I've enjoyed writing it!  If you have any fun recipes using salmon or fish (or any recipes at all) that you'd like to share with others, please feel free to send them to and I will include them in future issues.

Take care and happy & healthy eating!

All the best,

Geri Richard
