Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) July 23, 2013 -- “Being smart about what you eat is the first step to losing weight,” said Cathy Margolin, the expert on Asian diet and herbal formulas and founder of Pacific Herbs, online at http://www.PacHerbs.com, and marketer of Skinny Boost, based on the #1 weight loss herb formula in Japan. She said diet herbs for weight loss are popular throughout Asian cultures.
"The use of Chinese herbs for weight loss is common in Asian cultures, such as Korea, Japan and China, where obesity rates are low due in part to balanced meals of vegetables and fish or small amounts of meat,” she said.
“Herbs are incorporated into cooking and meals are often lengthy affairs. Fast food is not as popular although what might be considered ‘street food’ commonly sold in small cafes and by street vendors is popular and more healthy as well, including fresh juice, noodles, fish, vegetables and stinky tofu. Eating such snacks or comfort foods is healthier than common fast foods in America, UK and Australia among others, where obesity has skyrocketed.”
Margolin explained that the Asian Diet is similar to the Mediterranean Diet but is uniquely focused on a balance of foods with different temperatures and tastes. Bland foods like rice are combined with spicy sauces for meats, soup full of nutrients are eaten at nearly every meal as is fish, high in healthy oils. Wheat and dairy are almost never eaten, fresh vegetables and sea vegetables are a staple at every meal, including breakfast. Red meat is eaten only a few times a month and fresh tofu (not processed) is the most common protein and fermented foods, such as miso and tempeh which improve digestion, are also common in the Asian Diet.
Research shows that the Asian and Mediterranean diets are healthier than the Western Diet that has caused higher obesity rates with related increases in diabetes, heart disease and risk of cancer. The higher fat Western diet typically includes more red and processed meat and few vegetables or fresh foods.
In addition to eating smart for weight loss, Margolin’s Pacific Herbs introduced Skinny Boost, a granule combination of 15 herbs matching the number one weight loss herbal formula in Japan. Typically mixed with water to drink as tea, Skinny Boost is designed to increase elimination by helping the body gently release toxins from the colon, improve digestion with herbs that nourish the stomach and increase overall metabolism.
She said the herbal formula of Skinny Boost is time-tested and dates to 12th Century China. Margolin suggests using it for a few weeks or months, noting a 60-day money back guarantee, and said, "there are no shortcuts for real, long term weight-loss. But you can boost your efforts. Healthy foods, exercise and proper elimination will boost your weight loss results."
U.S. News & World Report this year reported that “Folks in Asian countries tend to have lower rates of cancer, heart disease, and obesity than Americans, and they typically live longer, too. Researchers suspect that owes largely to their diet: a low-fat, healthy eating style that emphasizes rice, vegetables, fresh fruit, and fish, with very little red meat.”
A Doctor of Oriental Medicine and Licensed Acupuncturist, in her book “Stop Your Bitching Naturally,” Margolin wrote, “Your body’s natural hormonal balance can be severely affected by food.” She added that herbal formulas time-tested through centuries are key tools to maintain a balanced, healthy body, and Skinny Boost offers herbs for weight loss taken as a delicious tea.
