A TYPICAL FITONICS DAY

There's the innovative FITONICS NATURAL HEALTH FORMULA you'll use to do it:

Each week you'll have the opportunity to focus on main courses of all of the foods you love. You'll have your optional meat days, including optional dairy. There'll be warm-weather juice-and-fruit days for accelerated progress, and cold-weather cleansing days when advances are made with an emphasis on soups and cooked vegetables. You'll have the Funday on Sunday when you can rest and stretch out--focusing on weight loss even more with fresh, uncooked, natural foods. For those who love vegetarian eating, nonmeat choices are offered throughout.

Here's what a sample day might look like:

To start your morning with energy, help you lose weight, and combat the wilted look and aches and pains that so many attribute to "growing old" but are really the results of nutrient deprivation and too little exercise, you'll begin with the twelve minute BODYTONICS routine.

Invigorated from these natural movements, you might then have one of our special tonics, a high-energy blend of fruit and juice with the addition of the super-nutrient supplements we recommend. This is a breakfast bursting with natural, wholesome ingredients. Since the majority of our taste buds steer us toward cravings for sweet, we give you "natural sweet" first thing in the morning to handle your cravings throughout the rest of the day.

For those trying to break a sugar addiction, you'll be shocked at how well this works! If you're looking for energy and weight loss, the TONIC is our answer. It staves off hunger for hours and helps stop the unhealthy cravings caused by nutrient deprivation.

For lunch we encourage youto try the POWER LUNCH,

a high-protein and salad meal to sharpen the mind and stimulate the body, so you won't need an afternoon nap or to reach for caffeinated beverages. You'll have the option of such high energy super salads as Pasta or Shrimp Salad with Peas, Thai Tofu or Chicken Salad, or Philly Cheese Steak Salad with a bowl of hot soup in winter months.

In the evening we'll be recommending the SOOTHING SUPPER, focusing on complex carbohydrates that will calm you after a busy day. You'll choose from tempting Easy Fajita or Mashed Potatoes and Gravy Dinner, and you'll love the "soup and sweet" choice. Your meals will be as simple or as elaborate as you desire, and restaurant dining will be a treat you'll, still easily enjoy.~

What we are going to tell you next is the most fundamental underpinning of Natural Health and the message of FITONICS:

HEALTH CARE IS SELF CARE

The universe is regulated by natural laws. Your health and proper weight are regulated by natural health laws. If you break the laws you will suffer. In the west, our scientists refer to this idea as the law of cause and effect. In the east, this principle is understood as karma. For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. . . There's no free ride. . . Sooner or later, you pay the piper. If you wish to lose weight and return to health (if you wish to free up energy for spiritual evolution), the way to go about it for the greatest reward is to respect and apply the natural health principles in this book.
