Top Secret Fat Loss Secret is a rather unusual book about, generally because it’s not just about a specific diet, or any precise exercise regime. It does get into both of those things but the factor the writer, Suzanne Gudakunst, introduces as a big element in weight loss is body plaque.
‘Dr Suzanne’ is a Chiropractor from Atlanta, most celebrated for her use of research into the human colon and digestion working in tranquility with nutritive absorption to arrive at some rather startling conclusions.
It’s all in Suzanne Gudakunst’s Top Secret Fat Loss Secret.
You may have heard of it, you may even have read a Top Secret Fat Loss Secret review. If you are like me, you though the reviews you read weren’t written very well, which is why I’m writing this. Anyway, here’s what it’s about.
One method of becoming fat is consuming too many calories every day which our body reacts to by storing the surplus calories as fat. If this is all that’s going on, the way to lose weight is simply reduce you calorific intake and exercise a bit.
But we have all had the experience of doing precisely that and not seeing the weight coming off.
What’s going on?
In the water we drink there is lead, chlorine, and then there are all of the impurities from the environment that find their way into what we consume.
Also, there are parasites that are living in our viscera because the beef and fish we eat is typically not cooked well enough and the small beasts set up shop in our bowels.
The liver is the organ basically accountable for cleaning and one of the techniques it deals with the heavy levels of all these impurities and poisons is to increase our subcutaneous fat to contain them, and forestall damage to other organs and the vital methods of your body.
Dr. Suzanne Gudakunst has figured this out, and she suggests the most effective way to lose weight is to ‘first’ clean out all of the parasites, poisons and impurities that have accumulated inside you. Purge yourself of the parasites and the disgusting sticky muck that lines your guts, then, when your bowel is clean,’then’ start following a sensible, healthful diet.
Top Secret fat reduction Secret is only 49 pages, but it packs plenty of useful info inside it’s pages. So what’s in it?
One of the first things Dr Suzanne covers is Identifying Your Metabolic Type. This is significant because we all have a singular metabolic type, like our fingerprints, and once you know your metabolic type you can then plan your diet most effectively for. The strategy Top Secret Fat Loss Secret gives you for discovering your Metabolic ratio involves ‘listening’ to your body while you eat, but once you have it you’re ready to proceed.
And then, she offers a link to a special quiz, which tells you what type of metabolic type you must go for and improve on. Nice.
There is her highly vaunted three day detoxification plan which shows you a way to cleanse your colon with all natural products. One thing that shocked me about detox was a lot of the first large losses of weight ( 20-50 lbs ) people experience following this program comes from removing the large quantities of unseen plaque from your intestines.
Then there is her diet plan, which is fascinating because it shows how specific sorts of protein don’t go even with the healthiest of fiber rich vegetables and fruits, and if they are taken together they can create issues in your psychological clearness and energy levels.
In her fantastical novel Water for, NaNoWriMo alumna Sara takes readers on a journey along the rails with a second-rate, Depression era . As seen through the eyes of her narrator Jacob Jankowski, a student of veterinary medicine and human nature, ’s carefully researched story transports the reader back to a world of Prohibition and sideshows. After his parents die in a car crash, Jacob abandons his education and his old way of life to join up with the Benzini Brothers Circus.
Permitted on board because of his animal skills, Jacob quickly discovers the harsh behind-the-scenes realities oflife. Circus whores sell sex in their dressing tents, deformed freaks expose themselves for gawking crowds, and circus animals eat spoiled, maggot-ridden food. A rigid, hierarchical class system keeps people in place ensuring that all circus members from the roustabouts, to the fat lady, to the performers do their jobs. Any useless animals are putdown, and any useless people are redlighted or thrown off the moving train without notice.
interrupts the story of Jacob’s early years with scenes from his life as an old man in a nursing home. Though rich in detail, the nursing home chapters do not hold up as well as their livelier circus-themed counterparts causing some slowing of the novel’s pace. In the end, Gruen is careful not to let her beloved narrator get too sullied by the unseemly side of circus life. However, only the animals really escape the moral snares and emerge as truly noble creatures. The author’s self-proclaimed connection of the title character to his Biblical namesake seems tenuous at best. In addition, the ending, while carefully orchestrated, may seem too neat to satisfy some readers. Still, this book is a fine read for anyone interested in the vicissitudes of circus life.
The first wholly new interpretation for 2000 years of the moral teachings ofis on the web. Redefining all primary elements including Faith, the Word, Baptism, the Trinity and the Resurrection, this new interpretation questions the validity and origins of all ian ; focusing specifically on marriage, love and human sexuality, it overturns all natural ethics and theory. At stake is the credibility of several thousand years of religious history and moral teaching, and will certainly impact other fields of intellectual inquiry.
What first appears a counter intuitive challenge to the religious status quo is worth closer examination; it carries within its pages ideas both subtle and sublime, what the theological history of religion either ignored, were unable to imagine or dismissed as impossible. An error of presumption which could now leave ‘’ staring into the abyss and humble all secular, atheist speculation. This new teaching has nothing whatsoever to do with any existing religious conception known to history. It is unique in every respect. What science and religion have agreed was not possible, has now become all too inevitable.
Using a synthesis of scriptural material from the Old and New Testaments, the Apocrypha, The Dead Sea Scrolls, The Nag Hammadi Library, and some of the world’s great poetry, it describes and teaches amoral LAW, a moral principle, and offers the promise of its own proof; one in which the reality of responds directly to an act of perfect faith with a individual intervention into the natural world; correcting by a change in natural , altering biology, consciousness and human ethical perception beyond all natural evolutionary boundaries. Intended to be understood metaphorically, where ‘death’ is ignorance and ‘Life’ is knowledge, this personal experience of transcendent power and moral purpose is the ‘Resurrection’, and justification for faith. Here is where true , called righteousness begins.
Here then is the first ever viable religious conception capable of leading reason, by faith, to observable consequences which can be tested and judged. This new teaching delivers the first ever religious claim of insight into the human condition, that meets the Enlightenment criteria of verifiable and ‘extraordinary’ evidence basedembodied in action. For the first time in history, however unexpected, the world must now measure for itself, the reality of a new claim to revealed , a moral tenet not of human intellectual origin, offering access by faith, to absolute proof in a fully rationally justifiable belief!
This is ‘religion’ without any of the conventional trappings of. An individual, spiritual, virtue-ethical conception, independent of all cultural perception, contained within a moral command and single Law that finds it’s expression of obedience within a new covenant of marriage. It requires no institutional framework or hierarchy, no churches or priest craft, no scholastic theological rational, dogma or doctrine and ‘worship’ requires only conviction, faith and the necessary measure of self discipline to accomplish a new, single, moral imperative and the integrity and fidelity to the newly created reality.
If confirmed and there appears both the means and a growing, concerted effort to test and authenticate this material, this will represent a paradigm change and advance in the moral and intellectual potential ofitself; untangling and resolving the greatest questions of human existence: consciousness, meaning, suffering, free will and evil. And at the same time addressing the most profound problems of our age.
While every day, from every television screen, newspaper, radio and web, the limitations of mankind are becoming both obvious and ominous by the failure to successfully address and resolve the most pressing problems facing the modern world, threatening humanity and the earth itself, with this revelation, we are offered a way out.
Providing the ‘means to ends’ this new teaching is asking humanity, choose the future you prefer? The status quo, where existing religious traditions, mired in their own contradictions, corruption, hypocrisy and hocus-pocus, offer little but pretensions and divisiveness, and where existing political process can only feebly respond to the growing chaos of more war, terrorism, economic turmoil, environmental degradation, injustice, spin and whitewash, natural disaster, plague and pandemic; or learn to comprehend that, prisoner to its evolutionary root, exists within fixed limits of understanding, and by taking new personal and moral responsibility, in a single change of mind, heart and conduct, by faith, transcend those limits and blow the status quo strait to oblivion.
Trials of this new teaching are open to all and under way in many countries, colloquial evidence already suggest confirmations are taking place. For those individuals who can imagine outside the cultural box of history, who have the moral courage to learn something new, to stand against the stream of fashionable thought and spin and will TEST this revelation for themselves, an intellectual and moral revolution is already under way, where hope meets reality and the ‘impossible’ becomes inevitable, with the most potent Non Violent Direct Action any human being can take to advance peace, justice, change and progress.
The cliche goes, “never judge a book by its cover”. It turns out, in the case of How Clarissa Burden Learned to Fly, it is made evident that the reader has been living a lie, a terribly wonderful lie. The hard cover reveals a woman suspended in the air, seemingly surpassing the boundaries of known physics as she remains, arms spread, head held back, legs bent, caught in the midst of a limitless sky.
The author,starts the book ominously with the summer solstice reaching 92 degrees at 7 a.m. in the small town of Hope, Florida. Throughout the story, the Floridian swamp heat acts as a proverbial pressure cooker, minus the outlet. The plot revolves around Clarissa Burden, a best-selling author, somewhat voluntarily confined to the grips of her historical boondocks home, thanks to her lack of assertiveness towards her mentally abusive Afrikaner husband. While her oh-so-infamous “artist” husband photographs nude twenty-somethings in Clarissa’s garden escape, she is preoccupied by writer’s block brought on by the energy exerted from imagining spousal death scenarios.
The story starts off with immense anxiety, not only caused by the heat, but by Clarissa’s subservient attitude towards her clearly, two-timing husband. Her doormat mindset coupled with denial brings about a paradoxical sense of hopelessness yet excitement, knowing and hoping that somehow, Clarissa Burden will eventually snap.
While Clarissa is a very dynamic character (the dynamic aspects being the whole reason for the book) most of the other characters are stagnant. The author makes no attempts at making the reader feel some sort of compassion for the indifferent, selfish, downer husband. In fact, Fowler manages to place him in the category of Clarissa’s mentally abusive, alcoholic mother. Though he is clearly the villain, Fowler does not hide the fact that Clarissa -being the breadwinner, owner of the house and joint owner of the only safely functional car- is in this predicament due to her own accord. Though her imagination runs wild with death scenarios, alter-ego super heroes donning “cerulean boots” and “ovarian shadow”, she rarely fights back when her husband calls her names in Afrikaner dialect…or in English, for that matter.
Watching Clarissa develop was a suspenseful joy. Thanks to a series of spectacular and metaphysical events, the heroine was placed on the path of confidence and freedom. Clarissa’s development is reminiscent of a flower coming to full bloom or a caterpillar emerging as a beautiful, daring, badass butterfly (with cerulean boots).
One unique aspect of this book is that all 276 pages take place in 24 hours. Despite being a day long story, the pages remain abundant due to the author’s constant use of imagery manifested through, primarily, animals and. For example, a fly that has grown quite infatuated with our heroine. Another, theme that resonates throughout the book is that everything is bigger than what we observe, yet somehow it is all relative (which explains why the opening quote read “E=mc2). In every action, we affect people, animals, and places in ways we will never know. Even a fly, a small, seemingly useless creature serves a bigger purpose in the sense of character development, imagery and philosophical ideology.
Overall, I think that the book will strike the chords in self-conscious’s hearts. Unlike many stories with abused women -mentally or physically- this book is more optimistic and empowering, than anything.
Fowler pulls the reader in with sweeping imagery and intense character development leaving you empowered in relation to other humans yet humble to the fact that though you have a place in the universe, life will go on whether you choose to live it the way you want to or not. With that, as I took in the last page and learned how Clarissa Burden Learned to Fly, I couldn’t help but ask: How will I learn to fly?
The Wisdom of Rhiannon
In Celtic Wales long, long before the Romans invaded, Rhiannon had been a Druid High Priestess. Later in Norman England Rhiannon was a healer. Still later, in Henry the eighth’s reign, Rhiannon was burned as a witch. Through her many lives Rhiannon has always been female. On the other hand I, as the lower half of this duality, have always been male.
Rhiannon has always been known by the old Celtic name of Rhiannon because that is her soul name.
Rhiannon is the higher half of me, while I’m the lower consciousness bound around with finite limitations. I can learn new things: I can evolve; while Rhiannon, as myhalf, cannot.
She is the wise old soul with all the memories of all our shared lifetimes to draw upon. She can guide me: but only after I evolved to the point where I could consciously ‘reach’ for her. Once at that special point in the evolution of mind and soul I could receive intuitions, insights, ideas and inspirations from her.
In alternate life-cycles or ‘reincarnations’, Rhiannon and I reverse roles.
If you are confused by that it’s no more than I was when I first discovered Rhiannon, the other ‘half’ of me.
You see, as a hypnotherapist specialising in regression therapy, I was used to clients unexpectedly leaping in memory to fragments of their past lives. It happens also to the clients of many of my contemporaries around the world, a few of whom have written fascinating books about it.
Yet though clients remember lives of being of either sex, when I began my, as yet, still unfinished biography, writing in a semi-trace state, all the lives I recalled were male.
I never gave it a thought. Until one day a young lady client spontaneously and effortlessly regressed back through many, many fascinating lives in session after session, all of them female. When I questioned her about this while she was still under hypnosis, she replied: ‘I’ve always been female. I like being female.’
This gave me pause for thought, so, during my self-hypnosis sessions, I concentrated on recalling my own female incarnations. There was many: and then I found: Rhiannon.
Even now her voice is clear in my mind as she speaks mind to mind to me. A far wiser person than I, Rhiannon has remained with me though many years now. Perhaps, in reality, she is only a very small percentage of what Seth is to the famous Jane Roberts, but Rhiannon to me at least, means just as much.
When I write Rhiannon writes with me. When I am lost and so ‘reach’ for her wisdom, she is always there.
But then where else would she be, for Rhiannon is, after all, the other half of me.
Finally I learned that we all have our own ‘Rhiannon’, our ownof the opposite sex to advise us: when we learn to ‘reach’ for them that is.
