6 Amazing Benefits of PRP Microneedling Facials

6 AMAZING BENEFITS OF PRP MICRONEEDLING FACIALS

Usually, facial treatments are viewed as a luxury instead of a self-care necessity.  But in today’s thirst to look good and feel good, these procedures are becoming the norm.  They are meant to improve the health, quality, and beauty of skin.  PRP is regenerative and has amazing benefits for the skin.  Patients who do PRP facials experience increased collagen production, fewer wrinkles and lines, improved skin tone and texture, and long-lasting results.

PRP facial therapy is also known as the “vampire facial”.  It is a miracle treatment that is popular with celebrities and media.  This therapy involves a blood draw to extract the platelet-rich plasma from the blood paired with microneedling to trigger the body’s natural healing response.  PRP therapy is also used in the orthopedic field because of its regenerative factors.  In orthopedics, it is used to help patients with soft-tissue injuries recover quickly.  The platelet rich plasma from the blood has powerful growth factors that help the tissues rebuild themselves stronger and healthier.

Here are more reasons why more and more people are using this treatment:

  1. Increased Collagen Production.  As we age (even in our late 20’s and 30’s) we experience a drop-in collagen production rate, which continues to decline.  Collagen is an important protein that is in the bones, muscles, skin, ligaments, and tendons.  It helps the blood clot and provides the skin it is firmness which is why unhealthy skin is one of the visible signs of low collagen in the body, thus old skin.  A PRP facial is excellent for people who have fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging in their skin.  PRP enhances the quality of the skin and restores its youthful appearance by boosting the body’s natural collagen production.  The production of collagen is triggered when the skin cells are traumatized. PRP facials (Vampire Facials) utilize small needles that puncture the upper layers of the skin during microneedling.  New Vitality Centers uses the only FDA approved microneedling device called the Skin Pen.  Once the skin is wounded, the existing collagen in the body attempts to heal the skin.
  2. Fewer Wrinkles and Other Facial Lines. Facial lines and wrinkles are especially annoying for both men and women.  Younger and younger people are getting both Botox and PRP facials at an earlier age with the thought of prevention verse correction.  These facial lines are slowly erased when the old skin cells are recycled and new skin cells with healthier elastin and collagen are formed.  The different signs of aging caused by loose skin are eliminated once the skin starts tightening as a response to the micro incisions on the skin.  The deeper folds in the skin also start to disappear and the hollow areas are plumped.
  3. Improved Skin Tone and Texture. PRP facials are great for all types of scars.  Patients with surgical and acne scars, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation, scars from injuries, and other forms of poor skin texture and tone benefits can benefit from PRP facial therapy.  As the body produces new and healthier skin cells, the overall appearance of the skin also improves.
  4. Less Risks and Side Effects. PRP facials treatments do not involve surgery.  It is considered low risk with no major side effects.  The treatment involves extracting the patient’s own blood so there is no risk of plasma rejection or any negative response from the body.  Here is how the PRP therapy works:  We get 25 ml. of PRP from the patient’s arm. The blood sample is taken to the lab and placed in the centrifuge which separates the blood into different layers.  The PRP (plate-rich-plasma) is extracted and is massaged on the patient’s skin after the microneedling has been performed.
  5. Painless (relatively painless) Procedure. Before the treatment, the skin is cleansed thoroughly to make sure that there are no irritants or pollutants that might affect the treatment.  The patient should not be wearing makeup.  After cleansing the face, the provider applies a topical anesthesia to the face.  Since the skin around the mouth, hairline, and eye area is extremely sensitive, the provider will use special care to those areas.  Patients will feel the device and hear the sound, but the procedure is not considered painful.  Patients are encouraged to take Tylenol before or after the procedure.
  6. Long Lasting Results. The results of the PRP Microneedling Facial appear within a few weeks and will continue to work months after.  The collagen production process takes a little while longer which is shy the results constantly improve over time.  While some facial treatments such as microneedling alone without PRP is good for only 30-60 days, PRP facial rejuvenation provides high-quality results for up to 18 months!  Aging is a continuous process which is why it is important to continually maintain the treatments.  This helps patients maintain a younger looking and healthier skin.

New Vitality Centers is an anti-aging medical clinic dedicated to providing patients the safest and most effective non-surgical procedures to help improve their appearance.

Why Do We Crave Sweet and Salty Foods?

There are 3 reasons why you crave sweet or salty foods.

  • Partly Physiological Does chocolate start calling your name around 2p.m.?
  • Partly Psychological
  • Partly the Environment    Do you want a bag of chips an hour after dinner?

 

Your body functions like a car.  You put gas in the tank and then you drive.  If your body does not get the fuel it needs, the strong physical cravings come.  What does your body need?  A balanced intake throughout the day of:  fiber, lean proteins, healthy carbohydrates, and heart healthy fats.

3 Factors that Contribute to Cravings

  1. You are starving yourself.  This comes from a couple of different ways.  Simply going without food and skipping meals sets yourself up for failure.  Following a healthy supervised intermittent fasting protocol is helpful but you need to be prepared in advance.  If you are not giving your body nutritious food that sustains your body systems, cravings will come!  When you are not prepared, you are setting yourself up for failure because your body will crave the fastest fuel it can think of which usually turns out to be refined grains and simple sugars.  This habit can lead to binging.

 

  1. You do not realize how addictive sugar and salt can be.  Why do we crave sugar and salt?  Well for one thing – they taste good.  This is not a mistake.  Food companies perform research to determine which food components will tempt consumers’ taste buds the most.  Our brains are wired to enjoy things which make us happy.  Sugar makes us feel good and leaves us to want to experience that over and over.  Sweet and salty foods and beverages are incredibly addictive.  That is why processed food is loaded with them.  They trigger the release of dopamine, the brain chemical that motivates us to engage in rewarding behaviors.  It is like any addiction; over time our tolerance builds up and we need more to reward ourselves.  This creates a vicious and unhealthy cycle.

 

  1. You are not listening to your body. If you begin to crave something sweet or salty, before you indulge, check your fatigue level.  Research shows that when you are tired you are more likely to turn to whatever you crave to give you more energy.  If you are craving a salty snack, the next time it happens, pay attention to your stress level.  Stress may impair your adrenal glands’ ability to regulate sodium, which may lead to cravings.  Are you thirsty?  Some research suggests that mistaking dehydration for hunger may trigger cravings as well.  If you have diabetes, you probably get hungrier than other people.  But excessive hunger can mean your blood sugar is too high or too low.

Understand that starving yourself is not a good solution.  Understand that sugar and salt can be addictive. Understand that your body may be trying to tell you something can help you reduce cravings and embrace a more balanced diet.

5 Reasons Why People Fail on the Keto Diet (Do Not Be One of Them)

5 Reasons Why People Fail on the Keto Diet (Do not be one of them!)

Sometimes it is just plain hard even when you do everything “by the book”.  The weight just will not go away no matter how hard you try.  Keto works for many people but you must do it right.

Some common mistakes people make that keep them from reaching their goal are listed below.

#1 Rushing in without a plan.  Absolutely a high-fat, low-carb diet can make you drop 20lbs per month – or even more if you do it right.  If you are doing it right, you can regain confidence, health and lose fat. But you must prepare so you can be successful, or you can end up worse than before.  You must have a plan.  Cravings will come.  What are you going to do?  Although cravings come in waves, know what healthy snacks you will eat and have them on hand.  Know what sweet substitutes you should eat.  Your health is the number one priority, so go in with a plan.

#2 Not getting enough vitamins and nutrients.  It is important to get enough vitamin B.  B vitamins are found mostly in whole grains.  If you do not get them, you will feel tired which lowers your energy and slows down weight loss.  You can get B vitamins from a lot of keto-friendly foods such as meats, eggs, dairy products, seeds and nuts, and dark leafy vegetables like spinach and broccoli.  To help in the process New Vitality Centers offers and includes lipotropic injections with your program to help with fat burning as well as B12 injections.  These can boost your B vitamins and your energy levels.

#3 Eating too many carbs.  Most people fail because they eat too many carbs and do not even realize it.  When you are in ketosis which is a metabolic state that your body burns fat for energy instead of glucose, carbs must be cut down drastically.  Only about 5% of your total calories should come from carbs such as fruits.  Most people do not realize how many carbs are in daily foods.  Consider using an app or even a simple log you can make yourself to chart everything that goes into your mouth.

After all, you are the only one that has control over what goes in your mouth!

#4 Eating too much protein.  Yes, you are supposed to eat protein on the keto diet.  But too much is going to cause you to lose weight at a slower pace.  When you digest protein, a small amount is converted to glucose (sugar) which is a carb.  Keto is not a free for all on protein.  Do not fall into the trap of eating as much bacon as you want.  Bring in the nut butters, olive oil, and avocados to your diet.  Make sure you have some healthy fat every day on your plate.

#5 Not eating enough fiber.  This can be a little challenging for some because keto focuses on low carb eating so it’s normal not to eat as much fiber as before.  There is a lot of fiber in fruits and whole grains, but you must track it on keto.  Fiber helps regulate hunger and helps you feel full.  It can also provide you with energy.  You may want to consider a fiber supplement and New Vitality Centers recommends eating vegetables dark in color.

#6 Not incorporating intermittent fasting.  Intermittent fasting has been used for many decades.  It is a proven way to change your metabolism and lose weight.  New Vitality Centers uses a combination of keto diet along with intermittent fasting to get the weight off.  This combination helps you burn off unwanted fat, get control of our appetite, stoop craving unhealthy foods, feel healthier and look better!  It may sound hard but there are many forms of intermittent fasting.  It is not as hard as it seems.  Remember if your dinner is at 6:00 pm by 6:00 am, you have already fasted 12 hours.  Go a few more to 10:00 and you are at 16 hours of fasting.

You can do it!  But you must have a plan and stay ahead of your hunger.  Remember hunger comes in waves. When we do not have a plan, that is when we grab unhealthy snacks which we regret later.  You will have many other benefits too.  Healthy protein, fat, and fiber help you sleep better, decreases sugar cravings, and the constant snacking.

 

The Health Benefits of a Cleanse/Detox

It is not just a fad; it is a great way to rid your body of unnecessary toxins and give it an overall reset.  If you are beginning a new way of eating or a new diet, it can give you the boost to start fresh.  When you experience issues with digestion, a cleanse can offer some reprieve by eliminating acid and alkaline for faster relief.  There are many other body parts that benefit from doing a cleanse/detox, leaving you feeling invigorated.

What is a detox cleanse?  It helps rid the body of toxic substances.  The body already does this naturally through the liver, urine, sweat, and feces.  This cleanse allows you go deeper and helps neutralize toxins and release them from your body.  CLEANS and DETOX are sometimes used interchangeably but they are not the same thing.  A detox used in combination with a cleanse is powerful.  The detox eliminates unhealthy foods from your diet and concentrates on eating whole, healthy foods to give your taste and habits a reset.  It is great to use before changing your eating habits or going through a weight loss program.

There are many benefits of a Cleanse.

Improved Digestive Health.  The chemicals we take in through the foods we eat and even the hair and cosmetic products we use can take a toll on our digestive system and health.  Just by removing processed foods, a cleanse can help the digestive process and reduce bloating and constipation.  The healthy foods that digest easily along with the supporting supplements that are taken helps remove toxins that strain and hinder the liver and digestive functions.

Get control of Cravings.  Controlling cravings can be difficult.  New Vitality Centers Cleanse/Detox Kit includes 4 products that help control cravings.  Cravings are more than mind over matter, and they can mean a hormonal imbalance for both men and women.  It involves drinking plenty of fluids, which flush out the unhealthy foods you crave and helps break the addiction to those foods.  During the cleanse liquids can fill you up and help curb hunger.  When you do not eat processed foods for a short time, your body will start to crave healthy whole foods instead.

Energy Boost.  Your body and liver must work much harder to process the chemicals found in processed foods.  It must work harder to breakdown all those toxins and it makes you feel sluggish.  When your liver is working correctly, you will have more energy.  Digestion alone uses a lot of energy and it takes more time to digest those foods.  When you get both processes working together automatically you feel more focused and energized.

Improved Mental and Emotional Health.  Cortisol is released when your stressed which decreases liver function.  Cleanses help regulate your cortisol levels which ease stress that the chemical imbalances cause.  Processed foods like sugar, excessive alcohol and caffeine contributes to adrenal fatigue.  When you control these your adrenal glands are refreshed.  Healthy adrenal glands help you cope better with stress and helps avoid feeling overwhelmed.  Poor sleep also helps play a role in stress and cravings.  If you do not rid your body of these toxins it causes poor sleep making you feel lethargic and moody.

Doing a cleanse and detox whether starting a new diet or not helps you feel rejuvenated and renewed.  The first couple of days is an adjustment but once you complete the cleanse, you will feel the positive benefits physically and mentally.

New Vitality Centers uses a Clean Start Medical Weight Loss Program that helps you lose weight and change your eating habits in a way that you can maintain and “live your life”.  It does not involve meal kits or meal replacements and focuses on changing your eating patterns.  Combined with using the Cleanse/Detox Kit, your body resets quicker and does not feel hungry.

Spring Forward How to Handle the Effects of Daylight Savings Time

SPRING FORWARD

How to Handle the Effects of Daylight-Saving Time

There is a lot of controversy about this annual routine.  We will soon be setting our clocks forward an hour.  Some people handle it with ease, but others have a hard time getting use to the new schedule.

One hour makes a bit difference in the amount of daylight available as we wake up, get ready for work, wind down and go to bed.  It even makes a difference in people being able to get their exercise and activity.  Daylight is the main regulator of our circadian rhythm, our natural 24-hour sleep cycle; that seemingly slight change in daylight can make it a lot more difficult to fall asleep, wake up and feel energetic throughout the day.

There are strategies you can use on how to cope with the effects of daylight savings time.  Whether you are a night shift worker, an early riser, or if you burn the candle at both ends, these strategies can work for you.

Start on Friday

Resetting your internal clock on a Monday morning can make the rest of the week more stressful.  To ease the change, start by going to bed an hour earlier on Friday night and waking up an hour early on Saturday morning.  You’ll have the whole weekend to adapt and lounge around more than usual.

Change your Mealtimes

Eating and mealtimes are big signals for waking up and going to bed.  Many of us don’t really “get going” until we’ve had our coffee.  You may not sleep well if your dinner is too early or late.  It must fit with your lifestyle.  To help cope with the time change, adjust your mealtimes slowly, starting a few days in advance.

Consistent Morning and Evening Routines

Food is far from the only thing that puts us to sleep.  Circadian rhythms are powerful, but many people become more tired or awake when they go through certain rituals and habits.  Find out what helps you sleep and wake up and make it a habit.

Breakfast or not

Some people do not eat breakfast at all and with the intermittent fasting many do not eat until close to lunchtime.  When people think of early morning energy, they usually think of coffee and caffeine.  If you are of the many people that eat breakfast daily, make sure it is balanced as it is your main source of energy throughout the day.

Spend Time in the Sun

Vitamin D is important for many reasons.  A lack of sun exposure is the main cause of seasonal affective disorder (SAD), which is a condition leads to depression and lethargy.  To compensate for the loss of morning daylight try to get extra sun exposure throughout the day.

Get Active

Exercise is a great way to boost your mood and energy levels and it also can help to normalize your sleep schedule.  People who exercise several times a week also tend to sleep better and are more alert in the day.

 

Low Testosterone Cause Signs and Symptoms of Aging

Low Testosterone Cause Signs and Symptoms of Aging

 

As you age, your testosterone level gradually declines.  Typically, when a man reaches age 30 the decline in testosterone is at 2-3 percent a year.  Testosterone replacement therapy can improve the signs and symptoms of low testosterone in men.  BHRT, Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy is the most effective delivery method to your body.  It releases small amounts of testosterone into your body at consistent amounts so that your levels remain optimal.

Some signs and symptoms of low testosterone levels include:

Changes in sexual function.  This can include sexual desire, fewer spontaneous erections such as during sleep, and infertility.

Physical changes.  Physical changes can include increased body fat, reduced muscle tone/bulk, reduced strength, and decreased bone density.  Swollen or tender breasts and body hair loss are possible.  You can also have less energy, focus, and brain fog.

Emotional changes.  Low testosterone also contributes to decreased motivation and self-confidence.  You might also experience sadness or depression and have trouble remembering things.

Other factors that come into play are caused by other factors such as mediation side effects, obstructive sleep apnea, thyroid problems, diabetes, and depression.

A blood test is used to diagnose low testosterone levels.

 

5 Things You Didn’t Know about Microneedling with PRP

Some people call microneedling a “collagen induction therapy.  It is a non-invasive, non-surgical beautifying go-to for women and men and skin variations.  It is used to treat:

  • Aging
  • Wrinkled skin
  • Acne Scars
  • Skin Tightening
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Minimize pore size

Have you heard of the Vampire Facial?  That’s what some people call it.  There is not red blood all over your face as some people say.  During this procedure blood is drawn and spun to get the PRP (platelet rich plasma) which contains hundreds of proteins called “growth factors”.  This is the clear part of the blood – PRP.  The proteins promote clotting, cell growth, and healing.  They are especially beneficial in tightening the skin.

It has a higher price – but totally worth it!  If you’re already paying for micro-needling and other types of facials, the results achieved with PRP Micro-needling are more than worth it.

Here are the 5 things you may not have known:

  1. Results are timeless.

Depending on what your desired results are, the procedure comes with timeless benefits for any type of skin.  Tight pores and lifted skin last for months.  Targeting age spots and acne scars, after a series or treatments, they will smooth out leaving lovely skin that keeps improving months after the procedure.

  1. Microneedling is Non-Invasive.

For the astounding effectiveness of the procedure, micro-needling with PRP is non-surgical and non-invasive compared with harsh, ablative lasers and cosmetic surgeries. The addition of PRP is a simple skin prick.

  1. It’s a Lot Less Painless Than You Think

It’s similar to a vibrating facial.  The only difference of a combination with PRP is a blood draw.  Studies show that using PRP after micro-needling is the most effective way to sink anti-aging in.  The PRP is massaged into your face after micro-needling.

  1. Little Downtime

A strong peel will keep you housebound for quite a while, and surgical procedures will have you cooped up for weeks.  With PRP microneedling there is very little downtime.  Aft4r about 24 hours of sunburn like redness, you’re back to normal, and many people return to work after a lunchtime procedure.  Your skin may feel tight and dry for a few days, but you’ll start to see a glow and rejuvenating results.

  1. Your Body is Actually Healing Itself

Collagen is an essential element of connective tissue and is responsible for skin elasticity and durability.  Over years, the collagen we produce naturally experiences degeneration leaving sagging skin, deepening, wrinkles, receding plumping, and a less youthful look and feel.  Our bodies produce new collagen which is why PRP microneedling has become such a powerful instrument in one’s beauty regimen.  The added benefit of PRP initiates specialized wound healing that stimulates cell replication of healing-capable stem cells to form new capillaries into the wound.  Essentially, a short, quick, and easy procedure enables you to tap into and unlock your own anti-aging abilities.

We all hate New Year’s resolutions! 

We all hate New Year’s resolutions! 

Most people hate the idea of New Year’s Resolutions to the point that we won’t even discuss them.  It is just a goal and to solve a problem that we have.  That could be at any time of the year, not only on January 1st.  What is supposed to be a positive change can trigger feelings of shame and guilt instead of hope and intended motivation.  Often it overwhelms us instead of motivates us.   

If you have a BIG PLAN to eat healthily and get in shape, by the 3rd day, we’re back in the fast-food drivethru and didn’t move our body at all.  Sometimes we should set smaller goals that we can accomplish and don’t seem overwhelming, but it begins to change our habits, and we get closer to our bigger goal.  For example, instead of committing to “get in shape,” try committing to doing five push-ups or using the stairs.  If someone wants to read more, that might mean reading one paragraph before bedtime.  In the case of meditating, it might be taking three calming breaths first thing in the morning. 

Make it so simple that you don’t have any reasonable excuse not to do it.  Even if you’re busy, or sick, or tired, you can still do it.  It’s hard to use the “I was too busy” excuse for not doing something that takes 1-2 minutes.   

Setting micro-goals to reach your larger goal gives you a sense of success rather than failure.   

We follow the Clean Start Weight Loss Program which is a combination of intermittent fasting and keto diet.  It allows you to live your life without confinement tio certain recipes, meal kits, or meal replacements.  It also allows you to socialize and go out to dinner.  This 8-week program is changing lives and getting people back in the game of being healthy. 

 

Are you tired of Yo-Yo Dieting?

Are you tired of Yo-Yo Dieting? Here’s how to end it for good. 

We’ve all done it before, and it is frustrating.  You get close or hit your goal and look and feel better.  Then a vacation comes, and we indulge in desserts, buffets, lounging on the beach, reasoning that we can treat ourselves since we have worked so hard.  After returning to work, it’s busy, and there is less time to exercise.  Now, we are not even sure if the clothes we bought months ago will even fit.  Time to go on another diet! 

Sound familiar?  We are all tired of yo-yo dieting or weight cycling.  Rather than only thinking about weight loss because of an important upcoming event, make it a part of your lifestyle no matter what’s going on. 

Easier said than done, you’re probably thinking.  It’s true, it takes time to develop new habits, so here are some ways to end yo-yo dieting for good. 

No matter how busy you get, there is always time to sneak in some exercise.  Even if you can only do a few minutes each day or only have time on weekends, any form of exercise is better than none at all.   

Recognize Gimmicks Don’t Work 

Despite what some campaigns say, there is no magic pill or supplement you can take to melt the pounds away.  Some show minimal results, but they are not long-term solutions that exercise and eating right can provide.  If you complete a program that is not sustainable to suit your lifestyle, all the weight will be gained back. 

Know Your Triggers 

You’ve had a bad day at work or with the kids, so you decide you deserve a cupcake to make up for it.  While it may make you feel better now, this type of mentality only perpetuates unhealthy eating habits and weight gain.  If other triggers such a stress or relationship problems can also make you overeat, try a healthier alternative instead, such as going for a walk, a hot bath to relieve stress.   

Start By Setting Small Goals for Yourself 

Making a lifestyle change is not easy, just like quitting a bad habit is hard.  Implementing a lot of changes all at once can backfire.  Instead, start by setting one or two goals a week.  For example, you can start by making a point to drink eight glasses of water each day.  The next week add a 20-minute walk around the neighborhood five nights a week.  You will start to feel better, notice a slimmer waistline, and have more energy. 

Avoid Situations That Encourage Overeating 

When you start your efforts, it will benefit you to remove yourself from situations where you tend to eat more than you need.  Or, if you are at celebrations or parties, know that your friends are not always encouraging.  Often, they say, “it’s her birthday; you have to have a piece of cake.”  Enlist the support of your friends, coworkers, and family to make it easier on yourself. 

If you want a proven medical weight loss program where you do not feel hungry and have cravings, we can help.  This is an 8 week program that follows the Clean Start Weight Loss Program.  It is a combination of intermittent fasting and keto diet.  The best part is that it allows you to continue with your life without being confined to meal kits and meal replacements.  It allows you to socialize and go out to dinner.   

Sugar Is Not Your Friend

Bursts of sugar send a surge through the body that significantly affects your mind and body.  We crave sweetness, but it is clear that too much leads to higher risk of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease.  In addition to Alzheimers and other degenerative brain disorders that thrive on chronic inflammation, sugar affects your mental state.  People like to separate the brain from the rest of the body, but studies have found a correlation between inflammation and mental health.  Did I tell you sugar is not your friend!   Most people eat two to three times the level recommended, which is one reason for a higher diagnosis of mood disorders.  We all know that sugar causes inflammation, but it also influences our mental health by affecting our nervous system’s neurotransmitters.  Some doctors classify sugar as an addictive drug because these refined white crystal triggers the pleasure and reward centers in our brain like a drug does.  That is why people indulge in higher and higher amounts to get the same euphoric rewarding feeling.  Sugar consumption has skyrocketed, with the average American consuming about 152 pounds of sugar a year.  That is almost ½ pound a day! 

That is why we use the Keto Diet along with intermittent fasting.  This plan is low in carbohydrates (which converts to sugar), so the body uses fat for fuel; thus, your body begins to burn fat.  There are many benefits to using fat as fuel for your body, including weight loss, burning fat even when you are sleeping, gives you energy and stabilizes blood sugar levels, and long-term health benefits.   

This plan allows you to lose weight without being hungry! 

Protein helps to stabilize blood sugar, which helps keep you out of fight or flight.”  Protein provides the building blocks for your neurotransmitters, serotonin, dopamine, and GABA.   

Our program is an 8 week medical weight loss following the Clean Start Weight Loss Program.  It is a combination of intermittent fasting and keto diet thus allowing you to live your life without the confinement of meal kits and meal replacements.  The foundation is old.  Low carb diet and closely related to the old Adkins Diet.  This is based on real food and simply avoids sugar and processed food relying on meat, fish, vegetables, and natural fat. It’s a super charged version of an old idea.
