Holiday Eating Secrets From Metabolife: High Metabolism Helps Keep the Svelte You Worked So Hard for During the Year

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - November 12, 2008) - Holiday buffet feasts don't have to sabotage diet success. If one leans on the secrets that keep the body's metabolism high, food choices made from a self-nurturing mind set and a little help from a groundbreaking, clinically tested formula made of cayenne, green tea, caffeine and the amino acid L-Tyrosine called Break Through, you can survive the holidays. An innovative, patent pending formula developed by diet experts, Metabolife® found that Break Through, containing a proprietary blend of these ingredients, helps keep metabolism high after an initial weight loss and this continued "thermogenesis" of the body is the secret to burning more calories. Nutrition experts have long suggested that a combination of the right foods with exercise keep the metabolism high. Metabolife's® Break Through is the first of its kind to help keep metabolism high. It is clinically tested and contains a varied blend of ingredients shown to create continued thermogenesis after initial weight loss. Metabolife's® new Break Through is available online at and at drug and grocery retailers nationwide, including Walgreens, Kmart, RiteAid, CVS and Fred Meyer, for a suggested retail price of $29.99.

Obesity expert and researcher on the Break Through clinical trials, Dr. Soren Toubro, suggests the following tips for keeping metabolism high during the holidays:

--  Eat 4-5 small meals during the day.
--  Choose spicy foods.
--  Eat whole foods, over processed ones.
--  Avoid simple sugars and processed flour.
--  Nosh on a nutritious and filling small meal before you leave for a
    holiday party.
--  Drink at least 12 ounces of pure, fresh water before each meal (your
    stomach won't know the difference between fullness created from water or
--  Scan the buffet table first before making food choices.
--  Choose the high protein foods first, things like fish and meats.  Eat
    that plate first, then return for carbohydrate foods such as potatoes and
--  Skip the bread.

"Getting the life we deserve is really up to us, and gorging at the holidays is not really honoring our efforts to find the body we always wanted," says Niki Simoneaux, Director, Brand Management, Metabolife®. "I have struggled with my own weight for a lifetime and have discovered that to have a body I love, I need to look at food as fuel and not entertainment. The holidays tend to be a time when we revert back to childhood habits that an adult metabolism no longer tolerates."

Though many diet supplements on the market help initial weightloss, Break Through uniquely addresses the critical post-weightloss rebound period, where a natural metabolic slowing may contribute to weight regain.

"In our clinical trials at the University of Copenhagen," said Dr. Soren Toubro, "we started with a group of 80 obese individuals who lost a significant amount of weight on a hypocaloric diet. The effect of adding our compound was a sustained increase in thermogenesis for eight weeks combined with an improved reduction in fat mass. The results of the double blind study are exciting because we were able to maintain the metabolic increase from week one to week eight. This is unprecedented with an ephedra free compound. The key base of the formula became Metabolife® Break Through, and is distributed to millions of Americans who want to maintain their success after initial weight loss."
