Dear Jodee, can I lose weight by using Cocaine?
Dear Prothinspo Member…

Cocaine is an illegal and dangerous drug - outlawed in most countries around the world. Many people speculate as to whether celebrities ever partake of the
drug to induce rapid weight loss. We can only speculate until they get arrested....Most people already know that cocaine can make you lose weight.

Here is a story I found from New Zealand. A wealthy 51 yr-old property developer is a suspected drug dealer. He attempted to justify his actions by claiming that
cocaine was helping him lose weight.

"In explanation for his actions, the defendant stated that he had discovered taking cocaine in the evening suppressed his appetite and helped him lose weight,"
the police summary said.
This may explain the success of Henderson's slimming regime. Last winter, Henderson seized on the Atkins craze and lost at least 24kg. During the stressful
2000 when he was building the $250 million Princes Wharf redevelopment, "Hendo" was a big lad. But by last winter, the metamorphosis was spectacular.
He sported a new wardrobe and cut a much finer figure on the waterfront. Come the summer, he appeared even leaner, as the diet regime continued apace and
his face shape changed markedly

I don’t suggest getting hooked on any illegal drugs to lose weight.
I only know of one diet product on the market that mimics the effects of cocaine weight loss. Of course it is new to the market after many years of clinical

Introducing the World’s First Chemically Altered Diet Pill designed to stimulate the COCAINE AMPHETAMINE REGULATORY TRANSCRIPT (C-A-R-T) and Inhibit
Through years of study and breakthroughs in modern science we’ve discovered the key to long term weight loss success. And you can only find this compound
inside of THIS weight loss solution.

The reason you are overweight is because there is a YIN-YANG battle going on deep within your brain, inside the satiety center of your hypothalamus. The battle
is, C.A.R.T. vs. NP-Y… or Good vs. Evil.

C.A.R.T. (Cocaine.Amphetamine.Regulatory.Transcript.) is the “Good Guy”… and if you’re trying to lose weight it's your Guardian Angel! The C stands for cocaine
and the A for amphetamine because these drugs put this chemical into overdrive. When C.A.R.T. is stimulated it increases your metabolism, reduces your
appetite, and increases insulin to deliver energy to your muscles rather than be stored as body fat.

NP-Y (Neuropeptide-Y) is the Villain. It’s a stress hormone that drives the eating chemicals into overdrive. When stimulated it will decrease your metabolism,
cause your body temperature to drop, and increase your appetite.

THIS PRODUCT was designed to stimulate C.A.R.T. and inhibit NP-Y, thus helping you win the battle of the bulge. (note: This product does not contain cocaine,
amphetamine, ephedra, or cannabanoids. We found alternatives to cocaine and amphetamine to activate C.A.R.T.)
READ MORE BELOW..Here is what's in THIS CART Program and how this product works:
After decades of research and scientific breakthroughs in the weight loss pills industry, we've finally discovered the key to fast and lasting weight loss
And that key is only available in this CART PROGRAM.

The main reason you're overweight is the back-and-forth battle going on deep within the brain inside the satiety center of your hypothalamus. The ongoing battle
exists between the two neuropeptides CART and NPY ... also known as the good and the bad when it comes to weight loss.

CART (Cocaine Amphetamine Regulatory Transcript) is your best friend if you're trying to lose weight. On the other hand NPY is the enemy when it comes to
weight loss. THIS PRODUCT was designed as the best weight loss pills to stimulate CART while inhibiting NPY
to help you lose weight safely and powerfully.

On the other hand NPY is the enemy when it comes to weight loss. As a stress hormone, NPY kicks up the appetite and signals hunger. When NPY is
stimulated it limits the metabolism and lowers the body temperature.

THIS PRODUCT is a product which was designed to stimulate CART while inhibiting NPY to help you lose weight safely and powerfully in a way the best weight
loss pills have never been able to do before even from what was previously considered to be the top weight loss pills.

What It Does:

Cocaine and Amphetamine kicks the body's CART into overdrive which helps to increase the metabolism, reduce the appetite and increase insulin levels to
deliver the maximum amount of energy to the muscles instead of storing excess calories as body fat. By igniting CART,
This CART PROGRAM  product has become the best weight loss pills available!

DiCaffeine Malate - 250mg
The rumors that Coca-Cola included actual cocaine when it was first introduced are actually true. When the drug was illegalized after World War I, Coke needed
an alternative to stimulate the mind and body while delivering similar benefits as cocaine. Caffeine soon replaced the cocaine and Coke has remained one of
the best-selling beverages in the world. In Fenphedrine we use one of the most potent and multi-dimensional forms of caffeine combined with all-natural malic
acid bonded to increase energy levels, stimulate thermogenesis and promote greater mental alertness and focus.
The only way to experience the full benefits of caffeine is through DiCaffeine Malate.

Hops - 100mg
Commonly known as Hops, the plant Humulus Lupulus is one of only two plants in the Cannabinaceae family. The alkaloid Lupulinum is extracted from hops and
works as a mild stimulant to trigger relaxation within the body.

Razberi K™ - 50mg
Subjects on a high-fat diet to induce obesity in a recent study (Morimoto et al, 2005) gained less body fat when using 1 to 2% concentrations of this patented and
proven form of Raspberry Ketone
than a control group on the same diet.

Cocoa Extract - 50mg
Cocoa Extract is packed with powerful constituents including methylxanthines (theobromine, caffeine, and theophylline), biogenic amines (phenylethylamine,
tyramine, and synephrine), amino acids (phenylalanine, tryptophan, tyrosine, others), minerals (with a high content of magnesium), several antioxidants and non-
psychoactive cannabanoid-related compounds to ignite the weight loss process. The Pea in Cocoa Extract is an amphetamine-like compound closely related to
the naturally occurring catecholamine neurotransmitters and the amino acid precursors tyrosine and phenylalanine. PEA works within the brain to promote
feelings of pleasure and relaxation. Extracted from chocolate,
PEA is the leading aphrodisiac found in chocolate.

Ginger Extract (20% Gingerols) - 50mg
Ginger has been used for centuries to provide relief from gallstones and numerous other health conditions. Ginger helps flush bile from the gallbladder to
eliminate unnecessary waste within the body. Ginger has also been shown to thin the blood and lower cholesterol to help cleanse the body and increase
This process speeds the metabolism and
increases the flow of nutrients within the body to provide additional energy.

Synephrine HCL - 20mg
Synephrine is a powerful weight loss ingredient derived from citrus aurantium. Synephrine HCL provides similar benefits as caffeine and other powerful
stimulants without serious side effects. By increasing energy expenditure, increasing the metabolism and suppressing the appetite,
Synphrine HCL is key to signalling key weight loss functions within the body.

Thermodiamine™ (98% Evodiamine) - 15mg
Thermodiamine is clinically proven to reduce fat absorption within the body while increasing thermogenesis. Thermodiamine increases lipolytic activity (the fatâ
€“burning process)
by increasing the vanilloid receptors to increase body temperature.

Lipolide-Sc™ (98% Sclareolide) - 15mg
The powerful thermogenic properties of Lipolide enhance weight loss by supporting an increased level of lipolytic activity through the Cyclic AMP.
Cyclic AMP
helps the body produce more energy by breaking down excess fat stored within the body.

This is a high performance weight loss supplement that utilizes a formula that is first of its kind!
This is the first diet pill to base its formula on scientific research isolating the
Cocaine Amphetamine Regulatory Transcript (C-A-R-T) and Neuropeptide-Y (NPY).

In short, CART is the good chemical component that triggers increased metabolism and lowers appetites and NPY is the bad stress hormone that causes your
body to lower in body temperature, decrease metabolism, and increase appetite. Adjusting the CART and NPY in your body, Increases metabolism, reduces
appetite, increases muscle function, and reduces body fat storage.

But science aside, THIS  is one of the most popular weight loss products on the market. It has consistently received the highest rankings and feedback from
consumers as being the Most Powerful Diet Pill.
According to our independent research,AND has 97% customer approval rating, which is unheard of in this industry.
There are multiple reports citing results ranging from 10 pounds per week to 33 pounds in just 3½ weeks.

Why Can't I Resist Overeating?
Diet Problem: Overeating.  There are many reasons why we overeat, so your best defense is to determine which reason(s) trips your Overeat Button. Keep in
mind that to every problem, there is a solution - even to Diet Problems.  So that's the good news. Choosing to tackle our Diet Problems can be troubling, because
generally, tackling diet-related problems is optional....But if you want to see big results on the weight scales, take a look at a few of the most common Overeat
Button Denominators and try to solve your puzzle by getting a grip on your Overeat Button. You will fall in love with those lower numbers on your weight scales!

Stress kicks in the urge to overeat in many individuals and it's how their body deals with stress. The "I Love Food Syndrome".  Simply put, a lot of individuals
just like the way that food tastes.  I do!  It's nothing to be defensive about, or ashamed about if this scenario fits.  The key is to manage the amount of food that
we eat. It's not easy, but it can be done with determination. Many times we overeat when we are at an event - such as a holiday party.  Even though we overeat,
we may not even remember what we ate (yes, even if we didn't have alcohol!).  It's due to mingling and the heightened excitement. Sometimes we overeat
because we are not aware of what a portion size is OR because the restaurant doesn't provide nutritional information about the foods ordered. We may overeat
because we don't feel well, and sometimes eating makes it all better. We may overeat because we are depressed OR happy!We may overeat because.  And
'because' is the most difficult reason to figure out what we need to do to fix our Overeat Button.

Ways Your Body Tricks You into Being Fat...
Why do some people feel the need to gobble up everything in their line of sight, while others can eat a third of that and yet stay satisfied? Are the moderate
eaters just pretending to be happy with their stupidly tiny portions, secretly bursting into tears every time they see a Doritos commercial?

Well, there might be an actual, physical reason, and that reason is all about the mouth: Some of us have crappier taste buds than others. Namely, obese
people, and specifically obese children. It appears that fat kids tend to have worse taste buds than their leaner counterparts, and this could be a significant
factor as to why they became fat in the first place. The theory is that because of their crappy tasting capacities, it takes more food to experience the same
"taste hit" as a person with a normal tongue.

In an effort to verify this, researchers gave both obese and non-obese children different taste strips to lick and identify. These strips were infused with base
flavors (sweet, sour, salty, bitter, and savory), and they all had different intensities of taste. Their scores were ranked on a scale of 0 to 20, and the fat kids
performed significantly worse than non-obese ones; on average, they only scored 12.6, while others scored a solid average of 14. While the obese children
had no problem identifying what a given taste was, they did have trouble identifying its strength level. In other words, they tasted the same things, only not
as intensely. Now, this is the sort of thing that might not have mattered back at a stage of evolution when it was really hard to get fat -- there was a time
when how much we ate depended on how much we were able to kill/gather/grow. But now that virtually everyone reading this has ready food waiting just a
refrigerator away, little physical flaws like this suddenly make it way harder for some of us to know when to stop cramming Hot Pockets into our cheeks.

Once you jump onto the Overweight Train, those pounds just seem to keep on coming. Little by little, day by day, the usable holes in your belt grow fewer --
even if you're eating the exact same amount as always. It's easy to blame this phenomenon on lack of exercise, or perhaps ye old "I'm not as young as I
used to be" effect. But while they may certainly play a part, there's also another, far darker force at work: Once you reach a certain weight threshold, the
very cells of your body throw in the towel and piss off to eat ice cream and watch reruns of Frasier.

Humans have immune cells that carry the awesome name of invariant natural killer T-cells. Their job is to help prevent metabolic trouble, and they fight
obesity as part of that. But their numbers don't scale up with your fatness -- the opposite happens. The more fat you gain, the fewer fat-fighting' natural killer
T-cells remain. And once they've lost the battle, there is no backup.

In practice, this means that maintaining your weight is easy as pie when you're near your ideal weight, because at that point you have an army on your
side. Once you hit a certain weight, you're left fighting alone, like a city whose police force just quits when crime gets too out of hand. Yes, your body's fat
regulation system works just like the plot of RoboCop.

It's not all bad, though: Research indicates that not only can the body's T-cells be reactivated with either weight loss or various therapies, but they can
actually be used as a super weapon against certain metabolic ailments, such as diabetes

Below are ways to avoid hunger pangs. Mind you, these tips are for people who are already consuming a healthy number of
calories, yet still feel hungry. These should not be used to facilitate an eating disorder. Follow these tips to help your waistline
shrink, but remember to stay healthy and strong. These tips are taken from the tips and tricks page..

1. Drink Water - This is one of the most essential ways to stay healthy and stick to your diet. Not only does drinking water flush toxins from your body, it keeps
you energized and makes your stomach feel full. Do not force too much water down, as that will make you feel sick. However, drinking eight glasses a day
plus one before each meal will stem your hunger. READ MORE ON WATER FASTING ..

2. Chew Gum - Sugarless gum is a guilt-free way to keep your jaws busy. Many people attest that chewing gum can help you lose weight and make you feel
as if you are eating food. Other benefits, such as building stronger jaw muscles and increasing concentration, are also associated with chewing gum.

3. Take a Nap -Feel like you can't  stop thinking about how hungry you are? Take a little nap and you will probably wake up feeling more energized and
more satisfied. Most people don't€™t feel hungry first thing in the morning and that is because there is less acid in your stomach. A nap can recreate this

4. Eat Small Meals Throughout the Day - One of the best ways to not feel hungry is by constantly eating! Yes, this can actually help you lose weight. By
eating smaller meals throughout the day instead of a few large meals, your metabolism stays high and your stomach always has a little food in it. Try six
meals a day instead of three.

5. Fill up on Fresh Veggies - If you really need a snack, you should eat one that is guilt-free and that won't contribute to more hunger. Non-starchy
vegetables are foods that you can eat all day without gaining weight. They also stick to your ribs longer than other snacks. Did you know that it takes more
calories to consume a stick of celery than are actually in the celery? That is why celery is referred to as a negative caloriefood.

6. Reduce Your Carb Intake - Carbohydrates turn to sugar and stimulate your bodies insulin levels, thus causing a vicious cycle of hunger. Remember, food
is supposed to satiate your hunger, not increase it! Reduce your carb intake to gain control over your constant hunger. READ MORE ON CARBS

7. Eat Lean Protein - Protein stays in your body longer than carbohydrates, so choose a lean piece of meat over a low-fat bagel. There is a reason why
people were dropping serious pounds on the High Protein Diets. While that is an extreme diet, you can sensibly increase your lean protein intake and
minimize your hunger between meals.

8. Increase Your Fiber Intake - Bulky, high-fiber foods usually fill your stomach quickly and keep you satisfied for a long time. They also require quite a bit of
chewing, which psychologically triggers the feeling of satisfaction.

9.  Skip Breakfast OR NOT - So many people run out the door before eating a good breakfast. Likewise, misinformed people who are trying to lose weight
will sometimes skip meals. Breakfast is definitely not the meal the skip, as it gives you a much-needed metabolism boost to keep you going until your next

10. Eat More Eggs - Looking for a low-fat, high-protein snack to stem your hunger? Eggs will give you that in spades. If cholesterol is a concern for you, skip
the egg yolks and make yourself an egg white snack.

11. Brush Your Teeth and Tongue - How great does a minty, clean mouth feel? Probably good enough to make you think twice before you eat something
directly after a good tooth and tongue brushing. This is a method used by many dieters.

12. Exercise - A nice  boost your adrenaline and kill your HUNGER for a while, at least. Burning more calories will make your body hungry. However, most
people are not hungry directly after exercising, so this can be a great way to pass the time between meals instead of eating.

13. Drink Vinegar - A fad diet that has come and gone involved drinking two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar before each meal. While it was proven that
vinegar does not directly cause weight loss, some people feel less hungry after drinking it.

14. Avoid Salt - Excessive amounts of salt is never good for your body and can definitely lead to dehydration. Since many people don't recognize the
difference between hunger and thirst, eating salt could make you feel as if you are hungry when you really

15. Avoid Sugar - Foods that are high in sugar may taste delicious, but they burn through your body too quickly. Even sugary snacks that are low in fat are a
bad idea, as you will just get hungry soon again and require more food.

16. Stay Busy - Many people convince themselves that they are hungry when they are actually just bored. If you find yourself eating because there is
nothing else to do, put yourself to work. Keep your mind off food and your diet.

17. Avoid Food - Literally. Not only should you keep yourself busy, you might want to avoid places where you will see (and smell!) food, this means don't  
hang out in the kitchen and try not to meet friends at a restaurant if you aren't planning on eating. And fast forward through commercials those can really
just send you into the kitchen grazing for food when you aren't even hungry.

18. Avoid Alcohol - Not only is alcohol filled with empty calories, it can greatly increase your appetite. It is hard to tell when your body is full after you
become a bit tipsy. Alcohol also relaxes that willpower of yours, which makes you even more likely to go for a second helping.

19. Eat Slower, CHEW THAT FOOD AND PUT THE FORK DOWN - Often times, we will eat until we are so completely full we have to open up our pants
afterwards you don't  want to go that far before you stop eating, which is why you should slow down when you eat. You may be surprised at how much less
you will have to eat before your body feels satisfied.

20. Suck on a Peppermint - Many physical and psychological benefits have been attributed to peppermint over the years. Although this has not been
proven by scientists, some dieters swear that sucking on a peppermint makes their body feel full when they are a bit hungry.

21. Avoid Caffeine - Although some people use caffeine as an appetite suppressant, you will just quickly crash after the caffeine burns through your body.
This is similar to how sugar makes you hungrier than before.

22. Chew Ice- no calories.. Put some Grapes in the freezer and suck on them when you feel hungry, the grapes will make you feel fuller and the sucking on
the cold will also burn calories.

23. Learn to Manage Stress - Mind-over-body diet tricks are hard to control if you are not thinking with a straight head. Therefore, you should do your best to
manage your stress level. Stress will not only make you want to eat, it is a leading cause of overeating.

24. Suck in Your Gut - Your body experiences hunger when the stomach is empty. By tightening your abdominal muscles, you will compress your stomach
and temporarily mask hunger pangs. It is recommended that you always keep your stomach muscles tightened anyway, as it helps you to get your abs into

25. Put Your Fork Down Between Every Bite - This is a great way to make yourself slow down while eating and it also sends signals to your brain that you are
through eating each time you put the fork down. Some dieters will put the fork down between each bite and take a sip of water.






Appetite control, weight loss, and healthy eating can all be influenced by your subconscious mind.

So why not play a few tricks on your subconscious? Not only can you use these five powerful calorie control tricks to trick your brain into eating less food,
but you can make yourself feel fuller, faster – and resist the urge to eat more.

Here’s how:

Calorie Control Trick #1: Use Smaller Utensils & Dishes
In the video above, I show you how the size of the bowl, plate, or spoon that you use can significantly influence how much food and how many calories you
consume. In the study “Ice cream illusions bowls, spoons, and self-served portion sizes.”, 85 nutrition experts who were attending an ice cream social were
randomly given either a smaller (17 oz) or a larger (34 oz) bowl and either a smaller (2 oz) or larger (3 oz) ice cream scoop. After serving themselves, they
completed a brief survey as their ice cream was weighed.

Even when nutrition experts were given a larger bowl, they served themselves 31% more without being aware of it. In addition, their servings increased by
over 14% when they were given a larger serving spoon.

In this study from University of Pennsylvania,psychologists conducted an experiment in an upscale apartment building in which they left out a bowl of the
chocolate candies with a small scoop.

The next day they refilled the bowl with M&M’s, but used a much larger scoop – and when the scoop size was increased, people took 66 percent more M&M’

So use smaller plates, bowls and utensils, even if somebody laughs at you for eating your soup with a teaspoon.

Calorie Control Trick #2: “Out Of Sight, Out Of Mind”
Whether you’re eating dinner at home, at a party with snack tables or out at a buffet, there is a simple rule that multiple studies have confirmed: the less
exposure your eyes, ears and nose have to food, the less likely you are to eat too many calories.

For example, unless we are eating outdoors, for dinner my wife or I will plate the food and bring it to the table, but leave any larger dishes, pots, pans or
bowls full of food on the counter top or on the stove, where we are less likely to reach for them and grab a second serving.

You can use this same trick in many other ways, such as:

-At parties, don’t park next to the snack table, but instead socialize farther away from the grub…

-At buffet restaurants or regular restaurants, seat yourself farther away from the kitchen, the bar, or other food displays…

-Keep any snacks or tempting sweets in opaque (non-transparent) containers or places where they’re not readily accessible in your home…

-Shove any tasty, tempting food to the back of the refrigerator or pantry, and bring the healthy food to the front…

Any of my energy bars, sweet exercise drinks, or other sugary, tempting treats are kept in two inconvenient places: the garage, and a door in the bottom of
my bedroom closet. This ensures I’m much less likely to eat empty calories. I talk about more tricks similar to this in my book “100 Ways To Boost Your

Another good book for learning about how easily our minds are tricked is 59 Seconds, in which the author describes a series of experiments that compared
putting chocolates on office worker’s desks to putting the chocolates six feet away. When the chocolates were placed on the desk instead of 6 feet away,
each person ate on average 6 more chocolates per day.   In another similar experiment, the chocolates were placed inside either transparent or opaque
jars. The chocolates in the transparent jars were eaten 46% more quickly than the opaque jars!

Calorie Control Trick #3: “Limit Your Options”
In a recent British study, research revealed that when kids were presented with snacks that were familiar and not much different than the snacks they usually
had, they ate fewer calories.

Not only does this mean that you might be able to get your kids to plow through slightly less Halloween candy this year by ensuring that they get many of
the same types of candy, but you can also assume that we probably don’t change much as we age.

So instead of heading to the supermarket and stocking up on three different types of cookies, several varieties of cereal, five different types of fruits, and
several choice selections of deli meats and cheeses, you’d be better off simply choosing one option. In doing so, you’ll reduce selection in your pantry and
refrigerator, and leave yourself less likely to overeat simply because you want to try a variety of new flavors.

Interestingly, this study reminds me of Stephen Guyenet’s “Food Reward Hypothesis”, in which he suggest that by eating simple foods and reducing our
reward response to food, we can probably do a better job controlling overeating and obesity.

Calorie Control Trick #4: “Slow Down”
Eating more slowly can help you to eat less. When you take your time with each bite, and fully chew and swallow (in many cases this means chewing a bite
20-25 times) you allow the fullness signal from gastric hormones to reach your brain and shut down your appetite before you eat too much.

But there may be more to eating less than simply slowing down.

At Pennington BioMedical Research Centre, 48 participants were studied in a lab as they ate three meals at lunchtime on different days.

Each participant was asked to avoid eating or exercise for 12 hours before lunch, and ate a meal of fried chicken, cut up into bite sizes at their own rate, at
half their normal rate (paced by a beeping noise), or at a mix of their own rate and then the slower rate.

The finding was that the combination of beginning the meal eating at one’s own eating rate, and then dropping to a slower eating rate, had the biggest
reduction on appetite for both men and women – more than eating slowly all the way through.

So to reduce the appetite, it may make sense to eat at whatever pace seems natural at first, but about halfway through your meal, to consciously slow down
and begin to savor every bite.

Of course, I always look at studies like this with a wary eye, because how often do you eat lunch after a 12 hour fast with no exercise?

Calorie Control Trick #5: “Remove Distractions”
Multiple studies have found that you eat more when you are distracted by TV, movies, phones or games. In that same book 59 Seconds, people who were
paying close attention to a movie ate significantly larger amounts of popcorn compared to those that were paying less attention to the movie.

In another experiment in that book, people who actively listened to an engaging detective story being told to them during lunch ate 15% more than those
who had no story to listen to.

In another interesting study, researchers at University of Southern California gave moviegoers either fresh popped or stale popcorn and monitored how
much they ate. They found that taste of the popcorn was not the primary motivator for how much people ate. People ate the same amount of popcorn
whether it was stale or fresh. But when people watched the movie in a meeting room instead of a theater, they ate more of the fresh popcorn than stale.

This study suggests that when you are engaged in an environment that is primarily geared toward entertainment, or absorbed in a movie on your iPad, you’
re likely to eat more food, whether or not you even like the food! It seems that distractions not only make you eat more, but can even make you eat more
food you wouldn’t normally eat anyways.
