The Intermittent Fasting Weight Loss Formula by Robert Dave Johnston

This book is Volume 2 of 7 of the series, “How To Lose Weight Fast , Keep it Off & Renew The Mind, Body & Spirit Through Fasting, Smart Eating & Practical Spirituality.”

Intermittent fasting is becoming an increasingly-popular way to lose weight quickly without having to commit to long-term diets. By cutting out some foods from your diet and then practicing periods of fasting of just a few hours per week (for starters), it is possible to lose weight very quickly. A 4 hour fast 3 times per week can actually produce weight loss of 7-to-10 pounds per month (or more depending on your body makeup).

And this is just the beginning. In ‘The Intermittent Fasting Weight Loss Formula,’ the author presents a five-prong structure of intermittent fasting that can help you get started right away, even if you work full-time, have a family and follow a very hectic schedule. Each method of Intermittent Fasting is explained, and you will also learn how to combine them for a massive powerhouse of weight loss and body detoxification.

The author also will give you ‘moment-to-moment’ guidelines you can use to carry out an intermittent fast of any length. Intermittent fasting gives you the flexibility to “sneak in” times of fasting anytime during a day, week or month. Time is on your side! In addition, for those who may have eaten poorly for years, it is easier (at first) to complete a partial fast than it is to do an extended non-interrupted one. Little baby steps eventually add up to a mile.

Those are some of the reasons why this “alternating” method of fasting is growing in popularity. If you need to lose a lot of weight, or simply have those last 10-20 pounds to shed, this book will show you exactly how to accomplish it through the powerful and amazing discipline of intermittent fasting.

10 U.S. Government Programs: That Can Affect Your Life And Creep You Out by Michael Arangua

The government has taken many of the scientific technologies that may have started out as a benefit and transcended them to specific military purpose, thereby undermining the original and creating an environment of distrust from the American people.

One could say that the level of suspicion wasn’t always at such an elevated rate. There was a time when a majority of Americans felt a sense of confidence and security with the government, whether it was deserved or not. The amount of information that has been released or leaked that relates to questionable government practices has tainted a majority of our citizens, specifically in reference to the more recent ‘Snowden’ whistleblower data.

The more research that one does on these topics, the more is learned that while the United States government is by far not the only one involved in clandestine projects, they do act as a leader within the group. The combination of facts versus disinformation has been a major ploy that the government has taken great pride for the control of the dissemination of data.

If we are to grow as a culture, we must mature beyond tactics that cause doubt in our own country as well as others. There is a fine line between the concept of ‘security’ and an abuse of power. To regain trust, those that are the ‘keepers’ of the information need to allow better transparency, otherwise the adage of ‘absolute power corrupts absolutely’ will be our path of the future.
