Losing weight is not always an easy task. Did you know that nearly one half of adults in the United States tried to lose weight in the last 12 months? Yes, half of Americans tried and failed to lose weight. Our diet plays a big role into this, as does our low activity rate. But what are some things that you can do, besides jumping onto some fad diet? Let’s talk about the reality of weight loss and what you can be doing about this.†
Statistics on weight loss
I want to talk about the findings that came from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. They recognized that 50% of US adults tried to lose weight over the course of the last year. 56% of those adults were women.†
We know that those who tried to lose weight reported that their most common method of doing so was trying to exercise and eat less, but it’s the adherence part that is the catch. We have to look really hard at diet and be honest with ourselves. I’ve spoken to many people who claim they have a very healthy and clean diet. In a roundabout way, it may sound healthy, but when we break it down, we can see that they may not actually be making the healthiest choices when it comes to calories, fiber content and more.†
Supplementing with Trim HxⓇ
When it comes to supplements, our Trim HxⓇ formulation can be very beneficial for weight loss. Trim HxⓇ is unique in the sense that it is targeting two different areas in which many people struggle to achieve their weight loss goals. One is to try to promote and speed up the metabolic rate to help promote fat burning. The other is to stop the cravings, so we have to target the brain component that drives cravings for bad, junky, sugary foods.†
This is where our Trim HxⓇ comes into play. This formula includes a registered, trademarked form of an herbal extract known as Grains of Paradise and it’s called CaloriburnⓇ GP. This ingredient has been shown in clinical trials to be effective. It is partnered up with 5-HTP, which is 5-hydroxytryptophan. This is the intermediate step between the conversion of the amino acid tryptophan and the manufacturing of serotonin. This helps to regulate the desire to want to go and snack.†
In this episode, Amanda Williams, MPH explains the science behind InViteⓇ Health’s Trim HxⓇ formulation. She details the common roadblocks in weight loss, as well as how Trim HxⓇ can help in these situations.†

The presence of excess body fat is known as Overfat; posing an increased risk of chronic diseases, mortality and reduced quality of life.
A new study published in the journal Neurobiology of Aging from the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Cambridge reveals that middle-aged adults who were overweight had reduced white matter volume in the brain, which, researchers say, represents around a decade of brain aging.
Professor Paul Fletcher, senior author of the study, says, “We’re living in an aging population, with increasing levels of obesity, so it’s essential that we establish how these two factors might interact, since the consequences for health are potentially serious.”
Researchers conducted a cross-sectional study where they analyzed data from 473 cognitively healthy adults between the ages of 20 and 87. Based on the BMI (body mass index) of the 473 participants, 246 were classified as lean, 150 were classified as overweight, and 77 were classified as obese. Using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) researchers also analyzed the participants white and gray matter of the brain.
Compared to the participants that were classified as lean, those who were overweight or obese were found to have significantly reduced white matter volume. Researchers also found that overweight and obesity appeared to have “the most detrimental impact on the brains of middle-aged adults.”
According to the study, middle-aged adults who were overweight or obese has a white matter volume that was comparable to those of lean adults who were 10 years older.
Prof. Paul Fletcher stated, “The fact that we only saw these differences from middle age onward raises the possibility that we may be particularly vulnerable at this age. It will also be important to find out whether these changes could be reversible with weight loss, which may well be the case.”
