What is it?
A calorie-counting plan that uses a beaded bracelet to help
you diet. Each bead equals 100 calories, so if you want to eat 12,000 calories
per day, slide 12 beads onto one string of the bracelet. Then when you eat 100
calories, slide a bead onto the other string.
What can I eat?
Anything! As long as you know the calorie content.
How much weight will I lose?
It depends, but if you stick to 1300 cals a day, you could
lose 13 pounds in six weeks.
Why is it hot right now?
Delta Goodrem is rumoured to be a fan and actress Kate
Beckinsale makes her own diet bracelets for friends. Forget the red Kabbalah
How can I do it?
Buy a bracelet at www.ilovethiscolor.com/dietbracelets or
make one. Take a piece of wool long enough to wrap around your wrist twice and
then thread enough beads onto one strand of the wool. When you've eaten, just
slide the bead to the other strand.

The Accu Weight-Loss program combines Asian and American
weight-loss concepts without the use of medications to achieve results.
The program enhances appetite satisfaction, thereby creating an atmosphere
where hunger is no longer an issue.
Accu-Weight operates under the hypothalamic hypothesis.
The hypothalamus is the gland in the brain that regulates
the body's weight set point, thereby maintaining weight levels. Dieters

started—within months of completing most diet programs. Accu-Weight provides a weight maintenance program that will
keep you within 3 to 5 pounds of your final weight. The hypothesis: The
medial (middle) hypothalamus governs satiety (feelings of fullness). The lateral (side) hypothalamus governs
the amount you eat. AccuWeight
achieves a balance between these two functions, allowing the body to maintain its
Another dimension is added to the program by incorporating Chi Gong Breathing.
This methodology not only enhances energy levels, but attention, concentration,
and mental alertness.
Always good to have more than one dimension in a diet.
