For Every 10 People Who Eat Pizza and Ice Cream, There’s 1 Who Doesn’t Gain Weight. WHY?

Answer: scientists have discovered a class of bacteria that SPEEDS or BLOCKS your body’s fat metabolism. Read this if

  1. If you’re the kind of person who MERELY LOOKS at pizza, ice cream and other cheat foods--and seem to gain weight...
  2. If you struggle to get rid of fat around your midsection—and NO DIET WORKS, no matter how hard you try...
  3. If you have to be absolutely “perfect” to lose a single pound, and it FEELS SO UNFAIR...

I had to learn this lesson the hard way...

How I Gained 42 Lbs In Just a Few Months

You might be thinking “Wade, you’re not fat -- you’re ripped! You don’t know what it’s like to struggle with your weight.”

But shedding fat was NOT always easy for me.

As a former competitive bodybuilder, I used to put my mind, body and soul through hell to get ready for a bodybuilding show. I once dieted for 11 months straight. Eating rice cake, whey protein and potatoes.

After that nightmare of preparation, I gained 42 lbs of fat and water in 11 weeks. 42 FREAKING POUNDS!

I felt like the Marshmellow Man in Ghostbusters. I was bloated, exhausted and ANYTHING I ate seemed to convert instantly to fat.

Fortunately, it all changed after I met a man named Dr. Michael O’Brien. I went to a special event for health professionals and he taught me the source of my problem -- the bacteria in my gut.

Since I discovered how to shift my probiotic balance in the right direction, I’ve been able to stay in great shape without even THINKING of dieting. It changed the quality of my life and I’m made it my mission to share this gift with the world.

Why Some People (Maybe You) Never, EVER Lose Weight

For years, we’ve been told that “calories in, calories out” determines your bodyfat.

So if you want to lose weight--just eat less and exercise more, right?

This theory fails even the most basic eye test. It’s obvious some people can eat just about anything--pizza, fast food, chips (I’m a chip junkie, btw)... you name it... they barely exercise, and still stay skinny...

On the other hand, there are those with metabolism so slow, even a healthy diet and lots of exercise makes no difference.

Some researchers thought it maybe genetics. Skinny people had good genes. Fat people did not. I thought so too...

But then, a group of scientists began studying the gut/stomach lining of thin and overweight people -- and their shocking discovery matched what I learned from Dr. O’Brien...

Toxic Bacteria Are Making Your Belly Bigger or Smaller

Did you know your body is at least 50% bacteria? This is especially true in your gut, where food is turned into fuel or fat...

In fact, one study found that lean mice with more “good bacteria” could eat the same food as the obese mice, yet stay slim.

But inject those same lean mice with bad bacteria, and they’d quickly gain weight.

So what about humans? In a study conducted at Laval University in Quebec, 125 obese men and women--broken into two groups--were put on a 3-month weight loss diet.

The first group only dieted, nothing else. But the second group received probiotics (good bacteria) daily.

After 3 months, the probiotic group--consuming the same diet and same calories--lost twice as much weight, on average!

How Did Bad Bacteria and Bugs Take Over Your Tummy?

If you can answer yes to one or more of the following, you likely have bad bacteria overgrowth slowing your metabolism:

  • If you’ve ever taken antibiotics — they kill the “good guys” and set the stage for bad bacteria to thrive...

  • Toxins, like heavy metals — from fish, dental fillings, even exhaust attract pathogens...

  • Simple sugars from beverages or fruit — which feed yeast and bad bugs...

  • Starchy carbs like bread and rice — which your body breaks down into sugar...

  • Chronic stress — making your immune system an easy target for invaders

  • Alcohol — which kills bacteria and is converted into sugar

  • Household pollution — the chemicals we breathe at home kill our “good bacteria”

  • And that’s only the beginning…

Can you see many Americans struggle with overgrowth of toxic gut bacteria? And why nothing seems to work. Right now...

Your Metabolism Is Like an Undefended House... NO Alarm, NO Watchdogs, NO Locks

Imagine you’re all alone in a big house. It’s dark outside. You hear weird noises outside, like bad guys might be trying to get in.

You call 911, but there’s no response. Suddenly you hear a window break...

Terrifying, right?

Now, imagine if -- in that same scenario -- you had police-trained watchdogs in the house with you, and an alarm system that automatically sent Navy SEALs to your rescue in under a minute.

Your house would be undeniably safer...

And your metabolism works the same way. It relies on bacteria protect your digestive system -- so it can break down food, converting that food into micronutrients and energy...

This in turn helps your body optimize fat burning hormones, like leptin -- or reduce fattening stress hormones, like cortisol.

Your body also relies on good bacteria to attack invaders like yeast, parasites, viruses and other pathogens that interfere with optimum metabolic activity.

And that is the simplest way to understand the “unfair advantage” lean people have -- which overweight people don’t.

Their metabolic house is “safe” and never slows down, while yours is under 24/7 assault with almost no defense...

How Do You Restore Your Metabolism? It All Begins in Your Gut...

The solution is simple: eliminate the “bad guys” by consuming powerful, probiotic strains that are going to “clean house”, eliminate the bad bacteria and protect your internal terrain -- including your metabolic house.

Do this and you’ll be amazed how simple it becomes to shed fat.

Embarrassing belly bloat -- from gas produced by bad bacteria -- quickly goes away...

Your tummy flattens almost effortlessly...

You notice your digestion becomes incredibly strong -- even after eating “bad” foods.

You also feel less prisoner to cravings, because gut bacteria have a direct effect on brain activity...

Finally... when you do want to eat your favorite foods, you’ll be able to enjoy them without worrying of immediate weight gain.

“Okay, But I’ve Tried Probiotics. And I Eat Cultured Foods Like Yogurt.”

I’m you’ve heard of probiotics before. Maybe you’ve even tried them.

So why aren’t you skinny yet?

The problems are too many to count. Many probiotic strains do not survive stomach acid. Others compete and kill each other. Some have a short life-span…

And despite huge claims of BILLIONS per serving, Dr. Tod Cooperman of Consumer Labs stated the actual amount of probiotics detected in popular probiotics often do not match what companies claim.

Sometimes only 7% of the label claim of CFU, or live probiotic cultures are ACTUALLY in the product.

Yogurt typically has even bigger problems. It typically contains additives, sugar, hormones (from the milk) and strains that have no scientific correlation to weight loss.

The sugar or additives in yogurt feed the bad guys. And unless you’re getting RAW, organic certified yogurt -- all you’re getting is a well packaged lie because they PASTEURIZE the yogurt AFTER they put in the probiotics.

Pasteurization KILLS the probiotics. In fact, pasteurization was created in order to kill bacteria. So you end up with a big fat FAIL.

So forget about yogurt, and ignore all the hype around probiotics that don’t work. Here are...

Two Questions That Ensure Your Probiotic Slims You Down

Most probiotics are either killed off stomach acid; or, if they make it into your gut, live very briefly and don’t help much.

To fight the bad guys that slow your metabolism, you must ask two questions of ANY probiotic:

Will they ‘defend’?

Will they ‘fight’?

The best probiotics are both offensive and defensive. They guard your metabolic house AND they attack invaders.

In technical terms, “colonizing” forms of probiotic bacteria stick to your gut lining, helping “hold ground” and defend your system. The “transient” forms are your fighters, they attack pathogens like yeast, parasites, and other pathogenic microbes.

It’s rare for a probiotic to have both types. So rare, in fact, that one company who found a SUPER STRAIN in their research – a probiotic that both defended and attacked at high levels -- was granted a patent for it.

This is a proven, patented strain that’s shown to eliminate bad bacteria and break down protein.

It very well may be the holy grail of weight loss, reversing slow metabolism once and for all.

Discover The “Navy Seals” Of Probiotics Proven To Eliminate Bad Bacteria And Restore Your Gut Back To Optimal: P3-OM.

P3-OM is a transient probiotic that eliminates bad bacteria fast, eats up excess sugar and protects your gut from inflammation and viruses.

Jason Frovich

I have severe food sensitivities. In the last few months my food sensitivities had gotten SO bad I could only eat fruit and about 6 items. It was getting really frustrating to eat. If I ate other food, I would get a severe migraine and suffer from gas and bloating. In less that ONE week of taking your P3-OM, I can now eat veggies again. I am also able to eat more raw foods that I could not eat in months. This has changed my life. Thank you for giving me hope that I can live a more normal life.

Jackie Greenshields

I have been taking P3-OM for the last year. They help my digestion tremendously. I love the product! I notice a change in my digestive process when I am not taking them. I went on a 3 week cleanse and then a 2 week bone broth fast to help clear up some digestive issues several months ago. When I started eating normally again, I resumed taking P3OM and my whole digestive tract was much better. No more bloating and stomach aches.

I search the world over for the very best of supplements to help the people who come to me. I was very positively surprised at the excellent quality of the P3OM ( it is hard to surprise me this way!), and for this reason, I have been recommending your probiotics to many of my patients for the past many months since I have been using them myself.

I only recommend the best of the supplements I find out there, and after I discovered the P3OM and tried them myself, I have been very positively impressed with their quality and effectiveness. I send you abundant blessings for all the good work that you are doing, and warm wishes for you and your company in all the years to come.

I have tried different things but in truth, the first time I tried P3OM I purposely fried a pound of bacon, 4 eggs and hash-browns all together without draining the grease. I took 4 P3OM and for the first time that I can remember, I did not have any digestive problems.

Jim Messenger

You know I’m 63 so, and I do work out quite a bit. Maybe twice a week. And just like the back of the bottle says you know for people who are athletic and work out a lot and you know you’ve got these enzymes that help to digest proteins. And I’m basically a protein eater.

I eat a lot of raw eggs and things like that. So, but for quite some time I’ve had some issues that are probably related to gluten. I’m not quite sure. But taking the pills here, you know the capsules, along with the probiotics, the two together were able to really give me three things.

  • Better digestion.

  • Knowing that if I’m going out and eating I’m not going to have bloating and gas issues.

  • Because I’m able to digest the food quicker I can eat again.

So those are the three plus points for me.

Get it digested but I guess one of the benefits, the benefits is just knowing that yeah you’ve just got, you’ve got digestive capabilities like when you were, you know young, like when you were young.

Younger. And I know as an athlete, I was a gymnast a long time ago. So man I used to eat food. I could eat five dinners. You know? But obviously as you get older that ain’t the story.

So having this was a nice surprise because of the speed and the, yeah the good feeling that you get. I mean it’s genuine. I mean I really felt like safe. You know because I don’t have you know breathing issues or I don’t feel like I’m bloated because bloating is a real pain in the ass, as you well know. So not having that you know to experience that is such a plus.

So I mean like I said there were three major factors that were good here. You know I could eat and then eat again and then have the confidence that if I’m out I can digest food.

I’m still having to deal with bloating but like I said boy if I can maintain a certain you know, you know consistency you know where I can take this stuff and it feels safe no matter what, where I’m at, you know what I’m eating.

I mean it’s just, that’s just the cat’s meow for me. So, because I’ve been through, I’ve been through a lot of different stuff here and it’s like jeez I’d like to be able to localize on one thing that I know works.

You know and it’s not you know $50 million but it’s reasonably priced and yeah it delivers. So that’s it man. It delivers. I’m into quality Jack.

Julie Holsenbeck

I love your probiotics! They have greatly improved my digestion and elimination problems that I have suffered with for years... Where everything else I've tried failed.

Unfortunately I had to discontinue my Loyalty Savings Club membership and quit ordering them due to financial reasons. :( Of course my severe digestive problems returned. I am not a body builder, just a disabled person who made the worse mistake ever going off the probiotics!

Now my 83 yr. old mom has agreed to help me, so I will never be this sick again and without the probiotics. Thank you for getting such quality products manufactured! The difference in my health was dramatic!
