Conquering The Pear
How a visionary Norwegian scientist tamed a pervasive silent killer, and transformed the figures of countless individuals who suffered from the debilitating effects of their pear shaped bodies while the rest of the world didn't have, and still doesn't have, a clue!
Metabolic Syndrome: A cluster of conditions—increased blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist, and abnormal cholesterol or triglyceride levels—that occur together, increasing your risk of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Typically exemplified by a pear-shaped body.
— Mayo Clinic
Metabolic Syndrome robs you. It steals your health. It destroys your energy. It obliterates your appearance. It can end your life years before nature intended. And now with the advent of COVID-19 we know Metabolic Syndrome is a major comorbidity that can contribute to a fatal outcome if you become infected with the deadly virus and suffer from a pear-shaped body.
Scientists call Metabolic Syndrome the “new” silent killer that affects up to 40% of people over the age of 40. However, for one uncoventional scientist from Norway there is nothing new about it. His name is Dr. Jan Raa. Decades before Metabolic Syndrome had a name, or was even recognized by the medical establishment, Dr. Raa knew the ever increasing prevalence of the pear would become a health disaster.
This story is about how Dr. Raa finally conquered the pear, and how his victory can be your victory.
Birth of The Pear
No one wants to look like a pear. No one wants to waddle instead of walk. And yet everywhere you see pears. We've become a nation of pears. It's not like we haven't tried to conquer the pear. We have special exercises, and exercise equipment to conquer the pear. We have endless diets and diet pills to conquer the pear. We even have surgery to conquer the pear, nevertheless the pear persists.
1950's: See any pear bellies?
Thanks to Dr. Raa, it doesn't have to. However, before revealing to you Dr. Raa's breakthrough pear-conquering solution, let's see how the pear came to be. It's not what you think.
Look at old family photos, old magazines, old movies, taken in the 50s. Do you see pears? Sure, you'll see a few overweight people, but they're the exception not the rule. Back then we had steaks, pork chops, lamb chops, sausages, hamburgers, french fries, cokes, doughnuts, candy, cookies, all kinds of fatty foods. Nobody seemed to worry about what they ate, and they ate as much as they wanted.
1950's typical dinner. Is anybody worried about calories?
Still there weren't many pear shaped bodies. Who belonged to a gym? Who did regular workouts? Who would have done something as crazy as running miles everyday? Almost nobody! What changed? Why are there now so many pear shaped bodies? And more importantly, why can't we conquer the pear?
Experts have answers: We eat too much, and too many fatty foods. We don't exercise enough. We consume too much sugar. Really? Our brief stroll down memory lane shows us these answers can't possibly be the whole story. So what changed?
In a word, antibiotics!
Hailed as a monumental medical breakthrough, the advent of antibiotics began in the late 40s. In less than a decade Big Pharma was developing antibiotics in earnest. Along with the development of these wonder pills came the pressure on doctors from Big Pharma to routinely prescribe antibiotics for every infection, even the common cold. It didn't matter that antibiotics were useless against viral infections like colds and flu. There was billions to be made.
Eight decades of over prescribing antibiotics.
To be sure, antibiotics have saved countless lives by their ability to kill deadly bacterial infections, but antibiotics also kill the beneficial microbes in your gut: The very microbes that help your immune system and regulate your metabolism.
By the 60s metabolic disorders were climbing. By the 70s antibiotic use was so widespread that trace amounts started to show up in our drinking water! Obesity was turning into an epidemic. Today it is. Pear bellies are the norm.
Pear belly consists mostly of visceral fat, and it is nasty. Visceral fat not only balloons your belly, it's a gel like substance that wraps around major organs, including your liver, pancreas, and kidneys. It's the BLOB, alive, gooey, and deadly.
Present day: See any pear bellies?
Visceral fat (intra-abdominal adipose tissue) acts like an independent organ gone mad. It can radically change your metabolism in the worst possible ways, a perfect storm wreaking havoc on your health. Visceral fat spews out pro-inflammatory signal molecules and other toxins that can devastate your immune system, short circuit your hormonal functions, hack into and compromise virtually all of your body's safeguard systems that normally prevent obesity.
Think of visceral fat as the dark engine of Metabolic Syndrome. It makes the pear not only unattractive, it makes it a killer.
The list of conditions associated with visceral fat, and thus Metabolic Syndrome, reads like a wish list for the Grim Reaper: Obesity, coronary heart disease, cancer, stroke, arthritis, dementia, diabetes, depression, chronic fatigue syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome, sexual dysfunction, and sleep disorders, to name but a few.
Dr. Raa was determined to put an end to Metabolic Syndrome and its horrible consequences. He was determined to conquer the pear!
It's All In Your Gut
Dr. Raa's research on Metabolic Syndrome had been pointing towards gut dysbiosis (out of balance intestinal bacteria caused by antibiotic exposure) as the hidden culprit behind Metabolic Syndrome. Of course over eating fatty foods plays a role, but Dr. Raa believed obesity was not primarily about what you ate, or even how much you ate, and then a study was published that left little doubt. The so called humanized mouse study.
Genetically identical mice were raised in a completely germ-free environment so they would be free of any bacteria. Scientists then populated their stomachs with intestinal microbes collected from obese women and their lean twin sisters. Three pairs of fraternal female twins and one set of identical twins were used in the study.
The mice ate the same diet in equal amounts, yet the mice that received intestinal microbes from an obese twin grew heavier and had more body fat. They were morphing into pear-shaped mice. But the mice who received intestinal microbes from the thin twins did not gain weight or body fat. Bingo!
While this study went largely unnoticed by the medical establishment who still adhered to their mistaken belief that caloric intake of fatty foods was the main reason for the raging obesity epidemic, Dr. Raa saw the humanized mouse study as a watershed.
Two other studies were also of particular interest. One showed that mice given antibiotics and a high-fat diet became obese much faster than mice given just a high-fat diet. The other study showed how populations of obese people lined up perfectly with states that had the highest use of antibiotics. Decades of over prescribing antibiotics has decimated our intestinal microbes. No wonder we've become a nation of pears.
It was obvious to Dr. Raa that the only way to conquer the pear was to develop a truly revolutionary product that could effectively both restore your gut's beneficial bacteria and block the absorption of dietary fat. It wouldn't be easy. Traditional products used to restore beneficial bacteria like yogurt and probiotic capsules barely work because they don't contain enough colony forming units (CFU's) usually under 25 billion, they don't survive stomach acids, and most importantly they don't contain a full array of beneficial strains. There were existing products that claimed to block dietary fat but when put to the test by Dr. Raa none of them performed as claimed.
Dr. Jan Raa
The challenge of developing the ultimate pear conquering solution would have been daunting for any scientist. However, Dr. Jan Raa was not just any scientist. He was Norway's preeminent scientist. Awarded Norway's highest honor for his medical discoveries, The Royal Norwegian Order of Saint Olav, Dr. Raa was up for the challenge. He delivered in spades.
LIPOBIOTOL® (Pear Conqueror)
Prebiotics are natural indigestible fibers that form a substrate (a biological wall) on which the beneficial bacteria in probiotics can grow and thrive. Think lattice work. Dr. Raa's pear conquering solution Lipobiotol® contains a proprietary prebiotic blend derived from both fructo-oligo saccharide and Asian konjac root, glucomannan. Both natural substances are considered the gold standard for prebiotics and backed by multiple clinical studies. Remarkably, glucomannan works as both a powerful prebiotic and a highly effective fat blocker! The glucomannan in Lipobiotol® has been specially processed to expand more than 50 times its weight giving it the ability to truly block the absorption of fat. There are numerous scientific studies on glucomannan that clearly demonstrate its power as a weightloss aid. In virtually all of the weightloss studies the participants are not asked to change their eating habits or lifestyles. Here's just one example:
International Journal of Obesity 8(4): 289-93.
Effect of glucomannan on obese patients: a clinical study
D E Walsh, V Yaghoubian, A Behforooz
An eight-week double-blind trial was conducted to test purified glucomannan fiber as a food supplement in 20 obese subjects. Glucomannan fiber (from konjac root) or placebo was given in one gram doses (two 500 mg capsules) with eight oz. water, one hour prior to each of three meals per day. Subjects were instructed not to change their eating or exercise patterns. Results showed a significant mean weight loss (5.5 lbs) using glucomannan over an eight-week period. Serum cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol were significantly reduced (21.7 and 15.0 mg/dl respectively) in the glucomannan treated group. No adverse reactions to glucomannan were reported.
Now that's a cool weight loss substance but that's just the beginning. Remember its your intestinal microbes (microbiome) that's the real pear belly culprit.
Dr. Raa formulated Lipobiotol® to deposit 100 billion colony forming units (CFUs) of live beneficial bacteria, you read that right—more than four times what's commonly available, into the lower part of your intestine where the important receptors reside for appetite regulation, food preferences, blood sugar, energy balance, and metabolism of lipids. What's more, this full array of beneficial microbes are able to arrive at your intestinal sweet spot unscathed because of a patented process that allows them to survive stomach acid!
Other probiotics can't do this. And, thanks to the accompanying prebiotic, they can immediately begin to colonize and get to work repairing the damage caused by antibiotics, the damage that has directly contributed to pear belly and all the health problems associated with unsightly visceral gut fat.
And there you have it, Dr. Raa's simple safe pear conquering solution that addresses all aspects of Metabolic Syndrome. Nothing compares to Lipobiotol®. People who have tried literally everything to lose their pear bellies and failed report real success with Dr. Raa's Lipobiotol®. And the best part is how effortlessly their success came. Here are a few examples:
Turned my blood pressure and cholesterol numbers around, Flattened my stomach and gave me lots more energy.
Tried them all. This is the best.
I was a borderline type 2 diabetic. Yes I was a pear! Now I'm neither borderline nor a pear. I've never been much good at dieting. As for diet pills, I've tried them all. Some seemed to work, but once I stopped my belly bounced back. Not so with Lipobiotol®. It's different, really easy and works.
Back to the future!
Glucomannan as a weightloss aid has been around a long time. I've tried it before with limited success. But when I read about it in your Conquer The Pear book I had no idea that it could also drop cholesterol and you said this was no ordinary glucomannan. I don't know what you've done to this glucomannan, but it's way more effective. Maybe it the combination with the probiotics, but wow! Lipobiotol® works better than anything I've ever tried. I'm down four pant sizes and have never felt better.
My friend changed my life!
My friend who I hadn't seen for months gave me her Conquering The Pear book after I commented on how great she looked. When I say great I mean it. She lost quite a bit of weight and no longer had the middle age bulge that I had. I knew she had been trying for years to lose weight but never could, so I had to know what changed. The part in the book about how antibiotics can mess up your intestinal bacteria and how that can make you gain weight really hit home for me. I ordered Dr. Raa's Lipobiotol® and have started to see results. This may not sound like much but for me it's a big deal. Nothing else I've tried has ever made a dent in losing my fat. I feel really healthy, better than I have in a long time. I'm going to continue using Lipobiotol® until I reach my goal.
