NO CALORIES 4 HOURS BEFORE SLEEP EFFECTS ON WEIGHT REDUCTION IN GLOBESITY BOOTCAMP REGIMEN

Post-dinner snacking leads to weight gain through the increased caloric intake (Waller, 2004). Nocturnal snacking increases sugar levels. When sugar levels are increased, hormones such as insulin, ghrelin, and leptin, are activated and specific systems in the body begin to work  (Kalergis, 2003). As the body becomes more alert through glucose metabolism, it may be difficult to switch off and fall asleep (Kristen, 2007). As shown in our other document, inadequate sleep causes weight gain. Women and men consume 15.3% and 9.2% more calories when deprived of sleep, respectively (St-Onge, 2011).

THEOBROMINE EFFECTS ON WEIGHT REDUCTION, CRAVINGS AND DIABETES IN GLOBESITY BOOTCAMP FOR THE OBESE

Theobromine may have weight loss potential by enhancing other weight loss drugs and reducing body fat percentage.
Theobromine may reduce cravings by inhibiting the synergism between factors involved in cravings.
Theobromine reduces insulin resistance and also the risk of long term complications in diabetic individuals, such as vascular, renal, and ocular complications.

SALIX ALBA. L EFFECTS ON WEIGHT REDUCTION, CRAVINGS AND DIABETES IN GLOBESITY BOOTCAMP FOR THE OBESE

Salicin decreases weight by inhibiting the inflammation of adipocytes and increasing the release of fatty acids.
Salicin reduces cravings by improving glycemic control and increasing the concentration of tryptophan and serotonin released from the brain.
Salicin increases the secretion and sensitivity of insulin and protects the pancreas from inflammatory actions resulting in better glycemic control.

5-HTP EFFECTS ON WEIGHT REDUCTION, CRAVINGS AND DIABETES IN GLOBESITY BOOTCAMP FOR THE OBESE-

5-HTP (750mg to 900mg per day) increases satiety and decreases carbohydrate and food intake, promoting weight loss.
Serotonin decrease in the brain induces craving for carbohydrates and 5-HTP prevents craving.
Brain tryptophan is decreased in diabetic patients. Although 5-HTP is not shown to decrease blood glucose in diabetics in human studies, it has other beneficial effects in these patients including weight loss.

SILICON DIOXIDE EFFECTS ON WEIGHT REDUCTION, CRAVINGS AND DIABETES IN GLOBESITY BOOTCAMP FOR THE OBESE

Silicon dioxide improves metabolism and calorie burning in humans resulting in weight reduction.
Silicon Dioxide prevents the development of spontaneous diabetes in rats, possibly through enhancing host mechanisms effective in preventing the destruction of pancreatic beta cells.

MAGNESIUM EFFECTS ON WEIGHT REDUCTION, CRAVINGS AND DIABETES IN GLOBESITY BOOTCAMP FOR THE OBESE

Magnesium supplementation in obese patients promotes weight loss and prevents complications of weight-loss regimens. 
Magnesium supplementation reduces cravings as a result of improved glucose control and increased synthesis and sensitivity of serotonin. 
Decreased magnesium levels increase the risk of diabetes. In contrast, magnesium supplementation in diabetic patients decreases fasting plasma glucose, HbA1c, and weight and therefore helps to control diabetes.

GREEN CAMELLIA SINENSIS EFFECTS ON WEIGHT REDUCTION, CRAVINGS AND DIABETES IN GLOBESITY BOOTCAMP FOR THE OBESE

Green Camellia Sinensis decreases body weight (by 4.6%), abdominal fat (by 7.7%), and waist circumference (by 4.5%) as a result of increased thermogenesis and fat oxidation.
Green Camellia Sinensis decreases cravings by improving insulin sensitivity and glucose metabolism, protecting brain centers sensitive to dopamine and serotonin from oxidative stress and stabilizing mood. 
Green Camellia Sinensis decreases the risk of diabetes (by 33%) by reducing HbA1C levels, improving glucose metabolism, and increasing insulin sensitivity by 13%.

L-TYROSINE EFFECTS ON WEIGHT REDUCTION, CRAVINGS AND DIABETES IN GLOBESITY BOOTCAMP FOR THE OBESE

L-Tyrosine is a precursor for dopamine and norepinephrine, which may help to promote weight loss through increased body activity and thermogenesis and decreased appetite.
Tyrosine (aka 4-hydroxyphenylalanine) is a non-essential amino acid used in the synthesis of certain neurotransmitters including dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine, as well as thyroid hormones thyroxine and triiodothyronine (Rosebrough 1994).

FRUCTUS RUBI EFFECTS ON WEIGHT REDUCTION, CRAVINGS AND DIABETES IN GLOBESITY BOOTCAMP FOR THE OBESE

Fructus Rubi decreases body weight (by 2%) and fat mass (by ~8%) due to increased norepinephrine-induced lipolysis and suppresses lipid accumulation. For an average overweight individual of 118 kg (260 lbs), this is a decrease in 2.4 kg (5.3 lbs) weight and 9.44 kg (21 lbs) fat mass.
Fructus Rubi increases insulin sensitivity promoting better blood glucose control.
