We live in a country where carbs rule! One proof is the success of restaurants that serve unlimited rice meals. While there's nothing wrong with wanting to enjoy all those delicious food, we must always keep in mind that moderation is the key.
While this post is all about taking control, let me tell you about my story first. I find it hard to gain weight, and I burn calories by just breathing and sitting. I have an ectomorph body type, which means that I have very fast metabolism. My friends tell me that it's a blessing, and sometimes I think it really is (especially when I am eating happily), but I always get comments like "you're too thin" and "you need to eat more". Oh, if they only knew that I eat even more rice than some my male colleagues!
That's me at the left side!
But then, I believe in the cause of A!life in wanting to spread awareness in the importance of controlling body weight in ensuring good health, so I'd want to share with you what a!life Control is all about.
Obesity is a growing trend here in our country, and this is a threat as it could lead to heart disease and other chronic degenerative diseases like cancer. Controlling body weight is essential in ensuring good health, but totally ditching carbohydrates or depriving oneself through crash dieting is not a healthy option. A!life Control is a health supplement that helps block carbohydrate absorption so we can indulge in carbohydrates minus the guilt.
Watch your weight without giving up carbs.
A!life Control (30's - P600.00) is a breakthrough supplement that has Phase 2™, an all-natural white bean extract proven by multiple clinical studies to minimize the absorption of carbohydrates. This patented white kidney bean extract reduces the caloric impact of starchy foods while lowering one’s glycemic index. Used in conjunction with a sensible diet and exercise, this carbohydrate blocker can also assist in weight control. Taken 5-10 minutes before a carbohydrate-loaded meal, we can now control our weight and achieve a slimmer figure.
Trivia: the white bean extract actually comes from a natural source: our good ol' patani (yes, the one from the bahay kubo song)!
A!life treated bloggers to an intimate dinner at Cerchio Grill & Lounge in Tomas Morato. Everyone was given a sample of A!life Control prior to the sumptuous meal they have prepared for us - just so we can enjoy and sample everything minus the guilt. With A!life Control, it's possible to curb the carbs and get the curves!
