Some people struggle to lose weight, while others lose or maintain an ideal weight easily. Recent research has uncovered why it is harder to lose weight as you age.
This discovery is an enzyme called AMP-K which can help determine how easy it is to lose or gain weight.
Greens First Lean has developed a program to support healthy production of AMP-K and help promote a healthy metabolism.
PROMOTE AMP-K PRODUCTION
1) SUPPORT METABOLISM & HEALTHY FAT BURNING
Use Amp Up Plus B-12 spray by taking two sprays under your tongue.
Do this three (3) times a day. Once when you wake up, once before lunch and once before dinner.
Take one (1) Stress and Craving, then have either a Protein 5 Plus shake [Vanilla or Chocolate] (mixed with cold water or unsweetened almond milk) or two eggs plus half a cup of egg whites.
Do not have cereals.
You can add a quarter cup of berries to your shake, but do not have any bananas. You can have oatmeal once per week. If you eat oatmeal or any bread, (carbs), take three (3) Carb Blocker 5.0 prior to eating.
3) SUPPORT ADRENALS, PROMOTE AMP-K & HEALTHY METABOLISM
Take one (1) Natural Energy capsule in the morning and take another one (1) in the afternoon.
4) NO JUICES, AVOID DAIRY & LIMIT ALCOHOL
Do not drink juices of any kind and avoid Dairy. [At the most, cheese twice a week in your salad or in an omelet]. No more than three (3) alcoholic beverages per week, but no mixed drinks. On the days you drink alcohol, take three (3) Carb Blocker 5.0 prior to drinking.
Take one (1) Stress and Craving before lunch for appetite control and to support sugar transfer to muscle, not fat. Then have a protein for lunch (no frying or breading), with vegetables and one healthy fat (either tablespoon of olive oil, mayonnaise, 5 whole walnuts, 6 olives, ¼ of an avocado, or 7 almonds).
6) MID-AFTERNOON SNACK
If you are having fruit as a mid-afternoon snack, take three (3) Carb Blocker 5.0 before you eat the fruit. You can eat any one of any of the following fruits:
1 cup of cubed cantaloupe
1 cup of any berries
2 small plums
Half a grapefruit
For a more Keto like diet, have 10 almonds or 7 olives for your snack. No fruit after 4:00 p.m.
30 minutes before dinner, take one (1) Stress and Craving. Then have protein (4-6 ounce for woman, 6-8 ounce for men) with two vegetables (use olive oil for cooking and on salads and vegetables).
Do not fry or bread the protein. You can have any green vegetables and any color bell pepper, plus yellow squash, cucumbers, pickles and cauliflower.
8) LIMIT BREAD, RICE & POTATOES
When you have rice or potatoes, take three (3) Carb Blocker 5.0 before the meal.
- Limit bread to 4 slices a week. Use rye bread whenever possible.
- No white bread.
- Limit rice to ½ cup brown rice per week.

9) SUPPORT HEALTHY APPETITE CONTROL WITH THE NATURAL APPETITE SUPPRESSANT
If you are hungry during the day, take two (2) Control pills a day: one at 10 a.m. and one at 2 p.m.
10) READ FOOD LABELS
