The safe, healthy approach to weight loss
BY STEVE BORN
We’ve come to that time of year when many
athletes, including me, need to get serious
about dropping those dreaded “off-season”
pounds. Isn’t it amazing how quickly and
easily those extra pounds can appear but
how frustratingly difficult it is to get rid of
Appestat 90 capsules / $27.95
Fortunately, we’ve got a powerful weight
loss ally in Appestat. For over a decade it’s
filled a niche for athletes during this specific
time of year when we need to get serious
about getting rid of the excess weight we’ve
put on during the off-season. This product
really works, and feedback from literally
thousands of athletes over the course of
more than ten years is a testament to that.
Think about it . . . if Appestat didn’t do what
it was designed to do, it would have gone
down the same route as so many diet/weight
loss products: “Here today, gone tomorrow.”
Bottom line: Appestat delivers the safe yet
effective results that athletes and active
people have been seeking, and it’s been
doing it for a heck of a long time!
The best news of all? You won’t have to
starve yourself or feel hungry all the time!
The time-tested Appestat formula
is a plant-based precursor of serotonin.
In addition to aiding in the reduction
of sugar cravings, 5-HTP potentially
enhances the quality of sleep and
growth hormone release. Other benefits
attributed to 5-HTP are mood elevation
and aiding in alleviating the symptoms
of PMS, migraines, and fibromyalgia.
Note: If you are using a SSRI-type
medication, or any medication for
treatment of depression, please consult
your physician prior to using Appestat.
ZINC (the highly bioavailable
monomethionine form) is essential to
approximately 300 different bodily
functions, including carbohydrate
metabolism. Research suggests zinc
supplementation may increase glucose
sensitivity with enhanced insulinlike effects, promoting increases in
lipogenesis (fat burning) and glucose
transport. Zinc supplementation
dynamically arouses leptin release in
systemic fashion. It is leptin release
that increases natural neuropeptide
levels for reducing appetite cravings
during calorie-restriction protocols.
IODINE is a multi-beneficial trace
mineral, included in Appestat as
it is needed for the synthesis of
thyroxin, a thyroid hormone involved
in regulating metabolic rate. Note:
Iodine is contraindicated with thyroid
medications. Therefore, if you have a
No empty promises or unrealistic
Appestat has never been about wild claims,
gimmicks, or shortcuts. Not only does it
NOT whack your body with stimulants,
it also doesn’t deceive you with empty
promises such as “losing slabs of weight”
or “melting off the pounds.” Instead, the
nutrients in Appestat work with your
body, cooperating with its finely tuned
mechanisms, not overriding them like
stimulant-based weight loss products do.
And because it works in cooperation with
your body, Appestat helps you get to your
desired weight in a safe, healthy fashion.

helps insulin regulate blood sugar
levels; supplementation tends to
decrease blood sugar in people with
high blood sugar levels and raises
blood sugar in people with low blood
sugar levels. It improves the uptake of
cellular glucose for energy production
and is believed to inhibit the synthesis
of new fat from carbohydrates, which
frees the mitochondria to burn alreadystored fat. While there are many types
of chromium, the polynicotinate form
is superior, considered to be 300 times
more biologically active (referring to
absorption rates) than other forms of
this trace mineral.
HYDROXYCITRIC ACID (HCA)
may just be one of nature’s most
remarkable weight loss nutrients.
This active ingredient, found in the
Garcinia cambogia fruit, safely inhibits
an enzyme called citrate lyase, which is
used in the conversion of carbohydrates
into fat. It also gently suppresses
appetite and reduces food intake.
Appestat + effective guidelines + discipline
= weight loss success
Without question, Appestat is a potently
effective product. However, as good as
Appestat is, there’s more to successful
weight loss than just this product.
At Hammer Nutrition we have long
maintained that weight loss success (or
athletic success for that matter) does not
come from a pill. We have always strongly
advocated that dedication and effort on
one’s part are integral factors in achieving
success in weight loss, just as they are
in training and racing. Additionally,
we believe that sound and sensible
guidelines must accompany any weight
loss product. That’s why, in addition to the
superior weight loss product Appestat, we
provide you with proven, science-based
guidelines and tips that work in tandem
with Appestat. Along with proper use
of Appestat, they’ll help you get to your
desired weight safely and successfully.
Simply put, Appestat—along with your
disciplined adherence to the weight loss
guidelines that we provide—will help you
achieve lasting success in attaining your
desired weight, without harming your

Dieting and why Appestat works
Attaining success in weight loss is not always an easy proposition. Studies
show that nearly 90% of dieters who lost weight have regained it back, plus
more, within 90 days of going off their calorie restriction protocol. Within five
years almost 100% of all dieters who have recorded weight loss regain it all
back, plus even more additional weight than the original amount. Diets do
not work! Permanent lifestyle changes, which employ regular year-round
exercise, appropriate amounts of water, eating small meals only when hungry,
and making dietary changes, do work. Appestat is designed to support these

access to carbohydrate stores, simultaneous mobilization of fatty acids for
increasing the rate of fat metabolism, and short-term weight loss by reducing

appetite cravings. Appestat is designed for a short-term weight
loss of 2-5 pounds over a period of 21 consecutive days, followed
by seven days of no use before repeating a second 21-day protocol.
The mechanism for this product is dependent upon compliance to aggressively
deny hormonal feedback loops, preventing the body’s “Appestat” to lower
basal metabolic rate as a compensation response from immediate body fat
loss. In the field trials we conducted, 100% of the subjects lost weight while
supplementing with Appestat and applying the recommended guidelines. These
subjects reported that they were unable to lose weight on all other weight loss
plans using a variety of supplements.
