Loss Case Study interview with David Rosa and Michael D'Amico
much weight have you lost? 65 pounds
Over how long of a time period? 7 months
How old are you? 48
Anything that you can do now that you can't do than. I can chase the kids
around and keep up with them. I noticed playing some sports
is a lot easier.
Which sports are you referring to? Just whether it's
basketball or just playing with the kids, softball or anything
like that. My son would
have me playing flag football. It was a lot easier
Your son is how old? My son is thirty. To go
out and keep up with the young guys is a little amazing.
When did you feel you needed to do something about your health? I have a 4 year old and
a 2 year old grand
baby and I wanted to be around. You want to be able to keep
What where you doing before, that was making it difficult for you to
lose weight? Eating donuts and
drinking a lot of pop.
Why did you decided to lose the weight naturally? I didn't want to do
anything with caffeine high or something. There is a lot of
products to speed up your
metabolism. I eat more natural foods, salads. Using things like apple
cider vinegar on your salad as opposed to bologna sandwiches.
I was eating a lot
of wheat bread as opposed to white bread.
I was just trying to stay away
from high calories.
Are you using any natural remedies in your diet? I would eat dried tart
cherries. They are just as easy and just as good to eat
as donuts. They also help
with your digestive system. I would use Apple
Mate. I would drink Yerba Mate throughout
the day. Sometimes in
the morning, I would heat up the water at work.
Would you drink it hot or cold? Either way. instead of
drinking Pepsi, I would drink Yerba Mate. Yerba Mate helps
as far as weight loss goes
and was kind of a pick me up. It helps you wake
How did you first learn about chia seeds? I would mostly use them
when I ate Chia Acai bars. I would make sure I would eat
Chia Acai bars in the
morning. Than I would add chia to orange juice andapple juice. I was
surprised that I didn't feel that hungry. People would offer
me donuts in the morning
and I would say no thank you.
Did it cost you more to change your diet to a natural diet I wouldn't say it would
cost much more in regards to food. I was eating more chicken,
fish as opposed to red
meats. It cost less to drink yerba mate as opposed
to pop. Yerba
Mate can get you 3 cups out of one teabag. A 12 pack of pop is about 4-5 dollars.
How often would you eat the Chia Acai bar? I was eating one in the
morning and at lunch.
What did you do in terms of exercising. Pretty much the
treadmill and walking. I would go on the treadmill for an hour
or so. I would change
elevations. I mixed it up quite a bit. I would start
at walking speed. I would
walk 10 minutes or so depending on the day and
gradually increase the speed.
Do you have any joint issues. No. Actually I feel a
whole lot better now. I got a little more pep at the end
of the day and can go run
with the kids.
Did you get any temptation from you co-workers. They notice that my
clothes are loose. They ask me what I am doing and what I am
eating and I would show them.
I am eating my salads and so forth. I eatthe
Chia Acai bars and drink the
Yerba Mate. What would it be like if you
had not lost the weight? I
would need more energy.
Could you do this for years to come? Sure. I would eat dry
tart cherries instead of donuts, fruits and oranges. I actually
felt lot better after
eating the fruits because it gave me a lotmore
energy. I work underground.
It is hot and dusty. The chia seeds keep you hydrated.

about Chia Seeds and Weight Loss
James F. Sheer's book “ The Magic Of Chia” Revival
Ancient Wonder Food it was written "For centuries the Indians of the
southwest and Mexico used this tiny little seed as a staple food. Known
as the running food, its use as a high-energy
has been recorded as far back as the ancient Aztecs.
It was said the
Aztec warriors subsisted on the Chia seeds during the conquests. The
Indians of the southwest would eat as little as a teaspoon full when
going on a 24hr. forced march. Indians running form the Colorado River
to the California coast to trade turquoise for seashells would only
bring the Chia seeds for their nourishment."
seeds help you to contol your appetite to aid with weight loss
especially combined with an intense competitive event. We recommend
adding physical activity to your weight loss programs.
For example a
prominent therapist was working with elite Kenyan runners before a
marathon. He said most runners would go to a pasta party prior to a
marathon. A reason The Kenyan's would do much better is most would
drink plenty of water and get hydrated days before the marathon and
avoid the pasta party.

Comments: I am
a 41 year old runner and
I am always looking for ways to improve my time. When I first took the Chia seeds
in a bottle of water before a workout, I felt full after the workout
even though I had run a couple miles and not eaten for 5 hours. With a
regular regimen of running workouts and a daily dose of Chia seeds in
an 8 ounce glass of water, I was able to run my best ever in the
Chicago Marathon by a 1/2 hour.
Seeds help keep you hydrated and because they are easily digestible,
you will not get stomach cramping. As a bonus, they are high in
protein. Three tablespoons of chia seeds dry are equal to 12.9grams of
Chia seeds can be a convenient altenative to a protein drink.
If you take chia seeds dry you do not have to mix, but be sure to have
water or some other liquid to drink before taking them.
Comments: Love the CHIA!!!!

fabulous difference in my weight in 1 week and it is helping me
tremendously to prepare for my upcoming wedding.
