Top 4 Summer Body Weight Loss Programs

It’s nearly Easter. Now is the time of year we are booking summer vacations and realizing we need to take some drastic action to get our summer bodies ready.

Don’t worry! We have got you covered. As your resident nutritionist, I will give you the pros and cons on four different programs and how they might help you to drop body fat, get healthy and shape up.

Of course, good quality protein throughout the day, lots of green veggies, oily fish, low sugar, no highly processed foods and limited quick release carbs as part of a healthy diet, and exercise, are the foundations for long-term health. But there is more to it than that.

It is not as simple as eat less and move more, and it drives me insane when I hear people say that.

Sometimes we need help sorting out the problems we already have in our bodies from the bad habits we have succumbed to over the years. These problems are hampering our abilities to lose weight and are not solved overnight.

Americans spend and incredible $110,000,000 per day on weight loss programs, diet pills, and exercise programs. But which ones actually work? 

If your body has any form of inflammation, you will struggle to lose weight. If your metabolism and digestive system are out of sync, you are going to struggle to lose weight. If you are under great amounts of stress and the little glands on top of your kidneys, called your adrenal glands, are not functioning optimally, you will struggle to lose weight. A large percentage of people have problems with all of the above, so no wonder it is so hard for us to lose weight.

Here’s our pick of the best programs that will help to address some of these issues and get you in shape in time for this summer and keep you fit and healthy beyond.

1. Clinically Proven Light Therapy Patches

Yes, a patch on your skin can help you to lose weight. This is not a fad, it is a clinically proven option designed by the biotech company LifeWave. It is actually one of the most powerful solutions I have seen to date. It is a long-term program that doesn’t involve taking pills, doesn’t involve any form of operation or injection, but is clinically proven to transform your health. The light therapy patches help change the way your body works internally.

“How is that going to make me lose weight”, I hear you say. Bear with me, and let me explain.

There is a range of patches, but there are three patches I would recommend as a total, belt and braces approach to weight loss and your overall health. And remember, they have been tested in clinical trials.

The X39 activates the regeneration of stem cells. Stem cells basically take on the repair function in the body. This patch will help with increased energy, improved joint health (so you can exercise) and it will help to support the proper functioning of the gut.

Y-Age Aeon is specifically to address inflammation in the body.

In trials, the SP6 Complete patch has shown an 87% increase in improvement in the function of the adrenal glands and a 97% improvement in the function of the thyroid, intestines and the hypothalamus (this is part of the brain that helps us to control hunger and food intake). The power of the three of these together is incredible. It is not the cheapest of the programs if you use all three patches, but as part of a total package for weight loss and improved health, it is the most comprehensive and effective in the long run. And you would not need to be using all three of these patches forever. If funds are tight, then you could use SP6 Complete alone.


  • One of the most comprehensive health and weight loss programs ever seen
  • Does not impact any other medications as the patches are non-transdermal
  • Results backed up by clinical trials


  • If you opt for all three products, then the cost is the highest of all of the options.

Price X39 / Y-Age Aeon / SP6 Complete: $239.85 for a month’s supply

Price SP6 Complete: $69.95 for a month’s supply

2. C9

This 9-day program is nutritionally balanced and designed to help you get results in nine days from the nutra-ceutical company Forever Living. It starts with a two-day cleanse that resets the digestive system and sets the body up for fat loss.

Your body gets everything it needs to function in those two days, but in the form of tablets and drinks. It gives the digestive system a well needed rest. Pure aloe vera, the best aloe vera drink on the market, is at the heart of the program. Aloe vera helps to cleanse the digestive system, so it sets up the gut for better functioning.

There is a nutritionally balanced shake – chocolate or vanilla. Other supplements included in the program are garcinia, which helps to reduce craving and curb your appetite. There is Forever Therm, which is a special combination of vitamins, including B6 and B12, which contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, and green tea, guarana and green coffee.

This whole program is designed to set your body up for fat burning. Days 3 to 9 are designed to help you make better food choices that you can continue once the cleanse is over. It is a great kickstart.

  • The two days are quite challenging as you are only taking on board supplements and shakes as part of the cleansing phase.
