The summer has come to an end, Thanksgiving is upon us here in Canada, Columbus day in the US, and I find myself without an internet connection this day.  I think that the first thing that I am thankful for is the internet!  I just take it for granted, and I shouldn't.  When I would normally be online, checking email, or gathering information for one thing or another, I spent this morning cleaning.  Geesh.  Well, I guess it had to be done and I'm surprised at the things I found.  I was able to finally put away a bunch of photographs that I've had buried (in chronological order) under various papers or documents.  I found a letter I wanted to mail out to a friend with a photo I took of him at the summit of a mountain we climbed this summer.  It was under a chair and swept it up with my broom, lol. 
I also came across my list of goals I wrote this past December.  Now there was a find!
I was going to do a goal newsletter last January but never got around to it and I apologize.  I had a weird start to the year.  'Nough said.
As for the goals, I'd like to share them with you now.  It's a know fact that by writing your goals, being very specific about them, or clear I should say and giving them a definate date really helps your subconscious in the creation process.  Telling them to someone helps you become accountable in taking action on them.  I will write a goal newsletter this December with more information on the power of goals, but until then, here's my list from 10 months ago.

 Now, some of these I have moved towards, and some I have made connections to move towards.  Very interesting how the universe supports our decisions.


·         I have begun giving away 5% of my income to charity.  The SPCA to be exact, and last month sponsored a wolf in the Rocky mountains wolf project

·         Got to 7% body fat at 226 pounds by August 2003 .  Fairly close, and still working at it.

·         Was interviewed by telephone in regards to being interviewed for a Japanese television show where I would be featured for 1 hour.

·         Did have my own talk radio show, the Former Fat Guy show – Fit, Wise and Well which was on for over three months.  I’m currently looking for sponsorship to go on the air again.

·         Met a fellow by chance at a Peak Potentials event who works at the Kennedy Space center and offered me a private tour when I get down there.  Very cool!

·         Met three awesome women this year, currently interested in pursuing one further and no, haven’t slept with them yet.

·         Can deadlift over 4 plates a side once, approaching 5, and I WILL do it by Dec 31 of this year.

·         I Am up to 8 dips and 10 pullups

·         Made arrangements of Skydiving for next year.  Did this just this past week as a matter of fact.

·         Am about 6 months away from owning an offshore corporation.

·         Played 5 rounds of golf this year, 1 more than last year.

·         Began work on my book.

·         Was going to go to Peru next year, but my sister has just moved to Austria, so will travel there in 2005 instead of Peru.




Things change.  People change, goals change.  I found myself becoming very interested in backpacking and mountain climbing and I headed very strongly in that direction this year.  I look at the list, and the list is not about this year.  It's about the next few years.  Some have specific dates, while others are just things I would like to accomplish and am not attached to the date.  Both work.
On another note, I have touched base with a few people this month who have shared with me their Sunrider success stories.  You saw the email I sent out about Jasmine Caldwell from Washington who at age 11 lost  a great deal of weight and is looking awesome.  She changed her eating habits and got more exercise.  A couple of other success stories will be near the bottom of this newsletter.  I'm so glad everyone is getting results.  Remember, it's not about weight loss, but rather health.  Come from the health aspect and everything else in your life gets better as a side effect.  We become leaner and the fat just melts away.  In Speaking with Nory Johrden yesterday, she said that after living with pain from car accidents for 5 years, she's now pain free and that's the best part about Sunrider.  I am so thankful for all the results everyone gets.
I look forward to more stories, and personal contact with all of you next month.  Please feel free to contact me at anytime if you want to discuss how to improve upon your current Sunrider program.  That's why I'm here.  This is going to be a very full newsletter and I hope you find it of some use.
Eat well, be well!

SPIRULINA – Blue-Green Algae – Very Complete Food


Ingredients   Spirulina



Spirulina is a blue-green algae high in chlorophyll, iron, and carotenoids and other micronutrients.  As in the case with all whole foods, Spirulina has compounds that do much more for our health than the obvious.  It has been found to be effective against a series of viruses and is being studied in several countries as an answer to malnutrition in underdeveloped countries, producing twenty times the amount of protein as that of soybeans on an equal land area.  In general, the blue-green micro-algae, Spirulina is unique in that it nourishes and also cleanses (because of its rich chlorophyll content).  Sunrider’s blue-green algae, Spirulina, is cultivated in hygienic tanks and ponds under the latest scientific conditions.  It is important to know how the Spirulina you consume is grown because it can take on contaminants from its environment.  It is a total food source for quick energy (very high in assimilable protein, rich in the B vitamins, minerals, and very high in B12).  Spirulina is excellent for weak digestive systems and glandular, particularly thyroid, needs.  Properties include:  highly nutritive; detoxifies the kidney and liver; builds and enriches the blood; cleanses the arteries; enhances intestinal flora; and inhibits the growth of fungi, bacteria, and yeast.  Many Sunriders enjoy the benefits of Spirulina every day as part of their Sunrider Basics!

Questions and Answers


Note: These next few questions were in regards to one of the conference calls we did recently on the Vitalight program.

Q: Calli should be drunk within 24 hours. Is there a recommended time on Fortune Delight? Also, 1 Calli tea bag for how many cups? I use the 20g packets of FD and 1 teaspoon per quart of warm water. 

A: I just tell people to drink it before it starts to grow.  I've never really tested it, but I'd say a couple of days in the fridge would be fine for Fortune.  Make calli as strong or as weak as you like.  I do a 1 cupper (1 bag to a cup), but I like it strong and I've been drinking it for 12 years.  Start with 1 bag to 6 cups, then increase as you desire. A one cupper is a sure fire way to "wake up" in the morning!

A word about the 20 gram packets of Fortune Delight:  It's actually cheaper to buy Fortune Delight that way.  The price works out to the equivalent of 5 packets whereas it's the same weight as 7 of the 3 gram packets (minus 1 gram).  People who use a lot at home for the family and kids etc will buy the 20 gram packets and then scoop it out by the teaspoon but then take the 3 gram packets when they go out.

Q: I didn't catch all the "floater" criteria. Please repeat. 

A: You'd have to ask Trudy.. but basically fiber floats.. if your poop is not floating, you're not eating enough fiber and we should ideally (ha) have one poop for every meal we eat.  I heard that two BM's a day should be considered normal. 

Q: What are Sun Trim caps used for? 
A: They were a solution to un-safe appetite suppresents on the market.  Dr Chen made them to fill the need for a safer product, but they don't really fit into the regeneration philosophy.  They are designed for people who overeat and just can't control it.  Eating Nuplus would be a better idea.  I have never used them and know of nobody who does. 

Q: In what context were electrolytes used?  How do we get our electrolytes in balance? 
A: Drink more water would be the first answer, and secondly, more FOrtune delight and or Electrosport.  Other than that answer, I'm not sure I understand the question.   Also, Electrosport is the most alkaline food we have in the Sunrider line of foods.

Q: What is put on the tongue in the experiment that is done so sweet won't be sweet?
A: Vitataste.  Open a cap (or 1/2) and put it in the mouth.. it's held there and swished around the whole mouth for about 30 seconds.. then swallowed and washed down with FD. 

Q: Did I understand correctly that after desired weight has been attained, quit taking Action caps?
A: Pretty much.  There is no harm in them.  They are a great way to keep the colon clean, but yes, your statement pretty much sums it up.  I'd tell you to try them again a year later or so to experience them after another year of regeneration.  Action caps / Vitalight caps are a lot of fun.

Q: Is one Sunbar a day enough? Spread it out, l/3 at each meal? 
A: depends on you and your energy requirements. I've eaten as many as three in a day and THATS A LOT of fiber!  yes, spread it out, or eat one as a whole meal.. whatever youlike.. there's no really wrong way of eating them.  Depends on your stomach and your budget.  The new Sunbars will be 1/2 the size of the original, so eating 1 Sunbar as a meal replacment won't be a problem anymore.  Make sure to drink at least 16 ounces of Fortune Delight or water with them as they absorb a lot of water.  The more liquid you drink with them, the better they do their job, and the easier they are coming out in the end.

Q: Any information on how SR products can help prevent additional loss of memory? What is the effect on the brain? Any one report improved immediate recall, recent recall? 
A: no information that I can think of that's written down, but my dad's memory improves whenever he drinks calli.  Basically, the longer we eat Sunrider and the cleaner our diet is, the better our memory, our thinking, our focus and clarity becomes.  The brain can regenerate too you for part two of your question, I dont have anyy testimonials on file regarding that.  Another suggestion for improvement in diet which improves memory is Udo's Ultimate Oil blend of Essential Fatty Acids.  Everyone and their pets should be consuming Udo's oil as part of their health program.

Q: What in SR can replace glucosamine? I've been taking it for about 4 years to prevent arthritis pain in right knee. 
A: Siberian Ginseng is the source of glucosamine.  Science isolated it.  SG is under a new name now, which I am not remembering at this time (sounds like woo chox root or something).  JOI would be best for the joints though.  IT has SG in it. 

Q: What can help prevent osteoporosis from getting worse. I take Fosamax weekly. I was interested in your discussion of toxins in the bone. Bone marrow? 
A: eliminate dairy products and any softdrinks.  Both increase osteoprosis.  Joi for the joints, Sport caps for the muscular skeletal system for sure, and Trudy's bone building formula... Cal Tabs, Electrosport and Evergreen I believe.  Also, make sure you're consuming Udo's Ultimate Oil Blend available at any whole food or health food store in your area.

Q: What can I do about finding a lower cost carrier for the phone calls?  I love the conference calls, but would like to save money on Long Distance charges.
A: Yes, I can help you there too.  I have a great package and pay 4.9 cents a minute Long Distance.  I'm also getting free long distance calls to anyone else on the same package, so it's pretty great.  Just let me know and I'll have someone contact you about getting you set up.
thanks for the great questions and I'm glad you're enjoying the Product Conference calls.

Q: What can I do about Alergies?


A: Sharon Farnsworth story: I have always been troubled with allergies from childhood. They progressively got worse, and at the time I found SR, I was basically environmentally ill. Bottom line is that SR has given me back my health and my life. I tried vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and at the onset, seemed to feel a bit better, but they seemed to "wear off" in about 6 months or so. And then I would go further down. Then I found medicinal herbs. They too treated the symptom, but was not getting to the cause of the problem.


It wasn't until I met Dr. Chen and started eating SR foods, that my body really responded, and I could tell I was really addressing the nutritional deficiency in my body, and I was able to assimilate and affect my health at the cell level. In my quest for knowledge, I studied with several master herbalists, chiropractors, and people knowledgeable about vitamins and minerals. But it wasn't until eating the balanced SR foods that I was really able to make a difference.


Would you like to learn a million dollar secret about allergies, that even most doctors do not know? Or if they do they do not really have the answer? It has taken me about 35 years to learn this information, I am happy to share with anyone. Why? Because it was given to me as a gift, and I would like to give the gift of glowing health and beauty on to anyone who wants to know the secrets I have discovered.


First, I learned what doesn't work. I have tried almost everything. But that is negative. So let me share with you what has worked for me and many other people I have shared this information with, they too have been helped dramatically. The simple answer is Sunrider Chinese whole foods. It is a simple food program, we often refer to as the NBC's of Sunrider. We all begin at the same place, even small children can eat these foods very successfully. Even new born babies can eat these foods. The philosophy is so simple, it almost over looked by most people. What I would like to suggest is that you investigate these SR foods in more depth than I can do justice to here.


The planet is covered with vegetation or herbs. There are three classes of herbs:

medicinal, which 80% of all medicine is derived from,

2. Poisonous, which is addictive and causes death sooner or later. Poisonous herbs we do not deal with.

3. Is food grade. That is the type of plants that SR chooses to use, based on 5,500 years of usage as foods by the ancient Chinese. These foods have been tested on people for centuries. So this concept is not new. It has only been re introduced to the world through Dr. Tie Fu Chen and his wife, a medical doctor. And Sunrider is the company that is now manufacturing and marketing these wonderful foods. NBC== Our foods do two things in our bodies. We get nourishment from vegetables. Fruits aid our bodies own cleansing processes. These two categories of foods, help to bring the body back to balance.


In Sr we focus on WELLNESS or creating a higher level of wellness instead of disease. I like the positive focus here. The basic foods in SR are: Nourish with NuPlus or Vita shake, Quinary and Sunny Dew or Sunectar. We cleanse with Calli and or Fortune Delight. But for some malnourishing conditions, we need to fine tune or take more of specific foods to help the body to have more nutrition specifically for a special need.


So I started out with the basic foods. And I discovered the power of these combinations of herb foods, one day when I had eaten a melon and was having an asthma attack. I was impressed to eat all of the foods together at the same moment. Then putting Sun Breeze on my tongue and putting a small amount in the palms of my hands and breathing it, I was able to pull out of the attack fairly quickly. That opened my eyes to the power or synergy of everything taken into my body at once. This was a great discovery for me. Because it worked for the crisis. But with continued usage and eating of the basic foods daily and eating extra Conco, & Alpha 20 C, I could see my progress happening faster. I would eat 4 Conco capsules, 4 Alpha 20 C capsules every 3 to 4 hours. The tightens in my lungs and bronchioles was beginning to break up. And the Calli and Fortune would help to expel the mucous, that was build up with layers upon layers. It was not a fast process, but finally, I was getting to the root of the problem. A very weak immune system.


It is amazing to me today, that people that have severe immune system challenges, that the medical thinking is to attack the immune system even further. To me what we should do is nourish the immune system. But the big question is what is there that really nourishes the immune system? With the Quinary or five element foods in SR, we find the secret. The Quinary, with quin meaning five, gives us the answer.

1. We have Assimilaid to nourish the digestive system. This system is the most important. If we are eating foods and can't digest them, what good are they? We have to be able to absorb the nutrients in our food, right? So this is the first system that has to be nourished.

2. Lifestream, or the blood stream of our body needs to be nourished. Yes, our Circulatory System is so important to carry the nutrients that are assimilated into the blood stream. Then the blood can carry the nutrition to the cells. So we have a food called Lifestream to nourish the circulatory system. It is another of the five systems of the body

3. WE have Prime Again, to help nourish the entire endocrine system. This is a complicated system with many glands that secrete hormones for our body. This system needs to be balanced. And most people's are not. The SR food Prime Again will help nourish the entire endocrine glandular system, beginning with the pituitary gland, which is the master gland that controls all of the other glands. Thyroid, which is our thermo regulator of the body or what helps or temperature to be balanced, or helps with the body metabolism. Pancreas helps produce a hormone called insulin that regulates the blood sugar and processing in the body.

4. Then we have a food formula called Conco, that nourishes respiratory system. After all living is breathing, or the breath of life.

5. Last but not least is the immune system. We have a very special food formula that nourishes this complicated system. This is an old food formula to nourish and support the functions of the immune system. This is one food formula that I have eaten a huge amount of for 20 years. I have eaten a lot of Alpha 20 C. I started by eating 20 to 30 capsules a day. Then SR came out with the Liqui Five, that I always carry with me for those rare occasions now that I might be violated by chemicals, and my immune system is compromised. I now know what to eat to quickly pull me back up. The Liqui Five is a liquid that is easily and quickly absorbed and gets into the system very quickly, and it works. I always carry 1 or 2 little bottles of this product in my purse, for wherever I may go. I have my emergency preparedness food on hand.


At convention, I just happened to be assigned to sit by a lady who is still struggling with her immune system. My perfume and hair spray was affecting her. She politely told me she needed to move away from me. I told her I understood, and that she wouldn't be hurting my feelings by moving. But before she left, I gave her a liqui five. She didn't leave. She was able to pull out of her reaction. She was impressed it worked so well and so quickly. There are many violators in the world. And we cannot get rid of all the chemicals and sprays that people use every day. I can try to stay away from them, but most people are not even aware of what can violate of immune system. And there is so much around, we cannot escape from all the bad chemicals. The only thing we can do is to strengthen our bodies defense or immune system, by feeding it the bitter herbs that are so lacking and needed in the body. I hope this has helped and given food for thought.


One of the biggest violators to the body is antibiotic, inoculations and shots and other medicine. These strong medicines destroy the friendly bacteria in the intestines. And Allergies are the result. They use mercury as a preservative in inoculations for babies and small children. Mercury is a deadly toxin that destroys the brain cells, causing Alzheimer's, palsy, seizures, ADD, in children and so many more side effects, it is scary, yet this is still a common practice with inoculations the idea of inoculations may be valid, but the chemicals they use to extend the shelf life is not. I know this is very controversial. But until they prove differently, for me and my family, we do not use them. When the friendly bacteria is destroyed in the intestines with anti biotic, the baby, child or adult will end up with serious allergies. I have seen this with two of my grand children. Two had hard births and aspirated the amblotic fluid. So the doctors insisted that they have antibiotics before they ever left the hospital. My grandson, Jeremy had terrible skin allergies, and horrible constipation. Thank goodness for Vitadophilus, which was given him in large amounts, along the other SR foods. He is now five and is doing very well. Pretty much allergy free, except for playing with cats. But we know what to feed him with SR that helps to nourish his immune system. I tease and say SR is the pollution Solution. And for me it really has been.


I hope this helps.






Kathleen Masner, Elementary School Principal, Gilroy CA.
17 pound fat loss in the past 5 weeks

You've all seen the testimonial I sent out about Kathleen Masner of Gilroy California who in the past 5 weeks has lost 17 pounds!  She's been making sure to eat a lunch every day which in the past she had skipped as well as adding in walking and bicycle riding.  She's paying more attention to what her body responds to in refernce to table foods and had really cut back on carbohydrates while sticking to protein and vegetables.  Her Sunrider program consists of Calli, Sunny Dew, Quinary and Vitashake.



Rosemary Aginas, Whitecourt Alberta

40 pound fat loss in 4 months on Sunrider basic program


Rosemary called me a few weeks ago and informed me that she has lost 40 pounds now and has the energy to get out and walk.  She's been picking blueberries which she hasn't done in awhile and has the energy to get up and get out of the house when normally she'd be watching television.  She called me before placing her latest order because she wanted information about the Vitalight program.  She's now just begun to add Vitalight Caps / Action caps and Sunbars to her basic program of Calli, NuPlus, Stevia, Vitadophilis and Quinary.  Once the body is ready to lose the fat, and has begun to drop the weight, then is the time to add the Vitalight program.  I advise people to not even consider it until they're already eating at least 10 or more caps of quinary and eating 3 NuPlus a day with lots of Fortune Delight.  Rosemary is doubling her Fortune Delight to 6 packets a day to help flush out the fat.  Rosemary also has asthma and emailed me recently to share this with me:


"Before I started taking the products I was going to the doctor or getting refills on my ventolin every two weeks and advair once a month. I haven't got a refill on my ventolin for about three months I am still using the same puffer for three months and my advair I take 1 puff a day instead of 2, sometimes I don't even take it for a couple of days. Pretty good hey!!"

Rosemary had been eating 3 NuPlus a day, 5 caps of quinary 3x a day, 3 fortune delight a day, 1 vitadophilis, 1 Calli and lots of Sunny Dew / Suncare Plus.



Jo Anne Walker, Candy Bouquet Franchise Owner, Humble Texas

62 pound fat loss in one year on Sunrider basic program


62 pound weight loss since January of 2003 (10 months).  Jo Anne had started Sunrider in the fall of 2003 with no weight loss success for the first 3 or more months.  With encouragement from me, and an explanation of why her body wasn't loosing the fat just yet, she stuck to it.  She had been De-generating for so many years that her body had a lot of work to do before the fat loss began.  In January we tweaked her program a bit with the help of the Vitality Analysis and the weight began to come off.  She emailed me a week ago with the latest update, 62 pounds.

Sunsmile Whitening Gel saves dress


"A couple of months ago my 16 year old daughter purchased a new dress. When you have three girls they all wear each others cloths. My oldest borrowed the dress for a grad party swearing to take good care of it and came home with beverage stains all over it, plus that night she got one of her nose bleeds that happens on occasion. The pretty pink dress had about a dozen spots of blood to go with the other stains.
I almost through it out but decided to take it to the dry cleaners. They ran it through the process twice and gave it back to me with the blood stains and still charged me $10.00. By this time the dress is very close to going in the garbage and the 16 year old still doesn't know of the problem and my oldest was depressed because she has to buy her sister a new dress.
I remembered how the Whitening Gel will oxidize organic matter and with nothing to lose, I applied some to the biggest stain and came back in a couple of hours, the stain had faded significantly!! I was excited, so I applied gel to all the spots. It took about 24 hours for all the stains to disappear and I had to keep applying small amounts to the larger stains to keep it moist.
Then I through it in the wash with some Super Clean and it was a good as new. My oldest was really happy and my 16 year old when seeing the dress laying out, inspected it and took it back to her room not knowing of what had really happened.
Never under estimate Sunrider"




Goldenseal helped with Ringing in the ears, inner ear infection


My son developed a case of tinnitus about a year ago. Tinnitus is ringing in the ears which is caused by an inner ear infection. It was so bad that he would stop everything and hold both ears. He would call and ask to leave his favorite playovers because it was intense and hurting. 

We went to see an MD who prescribed antibiotics. It went away for two weeks and came back. We went to see him again and again he prescribed antibiotics. The tinnitus came back shortly. It wasn't constant but it was often. It was distracting and upsetting to my son who was feeling like something was really wrong with him.

I researched this on the Internet and it was mostly bad news.  Didn't see any effective cures for it, just a lot of complaints about how chronic it is and how a lot of people feel hopeless about it.

I decided to turn to SUNRIDER Chinese Goldenseal Root. I figured since it is safe to take for long periods of time that it might be able to get rid of the tinnitus once and for all. I gave Kyran three capsules three times a day for three months. He was a little upset about how much and how long but he decided it was worth it.

Fortunately, this story has a happy ending. It's been about six months since we completed our Goldenseal and he hasn't had any recurrences. I am so grateful that Sunrider makes a Goldenseal that is so safe and so effective.


Two stories about courage


Many years ago, Al Capone virtually owned Chicago. Capone wasn't

famous for anything heroic. He was notorious for enmeshing the windy

city in everything from bootlegged booze and prostitution to murder.

Capone had a lawyer nicknamed "Easy Eddie." He was his lawyer for

a good reason. Eddie was very good!

In fact, Eddie's skill at legal maneuvering kept Big Al out of jail for

a long time. To show his appreciation, Capone paid him very well. Not

only was the money big, but Eddie got special dividends. For instance,

he and his family occupied a fenced-in mansion with live-in help and

all of the conveniences of the day. The estate was so large that it

filled an entire Chicago City block. Eddie lived the high life of the Chicago

mob and gave little consideration to the atrocity that went on around


Eddie did have one soft spot, however. He had a son that he loved

dearly. Eddie saw to it that his young son had the best of everything: clothes,

cars and a good education. Nothing was withheld. Price was no object.

And, despite his involvement with organized crime, Eddie even tried to

teach him right from wrong. Eddie wanted his son to be a better man

than he was. Yet, with all his wealth and influence, there were two

things he couldn't give his son; that he couldn't pass on a good name

and a good example.

One day, Easy Eddie reached a difficult decision. Easy Eddie wanted

to rectify wrongs he had done. He decided he would go to the

authorities and tell the truth about Al "Scarface" Capone, clean up his

tarnished name and offer his son some semblance of integrity. To do

this, he would have to testify against The Mob, and he knew that the

cost would be great. So, he testified. Within the year, Easy Eddie's

life ended in a blaze of gunfire in a lonely Chicago Street. But in his

eyes, he had given his son the greatest gift he had to offer, at the

greatest price he would ever pay.


World War II produced many heroes. One such man was Lieutenant

Commander Butch O'Hare. He was a fighter pilot assigned to the aircraft

carrier Lexington in the South Pacific. One day his entire squadron was

sent on a mission. After he was airborne, he looked at his fuel gauge

and realized that someone had forgotten to top off his fuel tank. He

would not have enough fuel to complete his mission and get back to his

ship. His flight leader told him to return to the carrier. Reluctantly,

he dropped out of formation and headed back to the fleet.

As he was returning to the mother ship he saw something that turned

his blood cold. A squadron of Japanese aircraft were speeding their

way toward the American fleet. The American fighters were gone on a

sortie, and the fleet was all but defenseless. He couldn't reach his

squadron and bring them back in time to save the fleet. Nor could he

warn the fleet of the approaching danger. There was only one thing to

do. He must somehow divert them from the fleet. Laying aside all

thoughts of personal safety, he dove into the formation of Japanese

planes. Wing-mounted 50 caliber's blazed as he charged in, attacking

one surprised enemy plane and then another. Butch wove in and out

of the now broken formation and fired at as many planes as possible

until all his ammunition was finally spent. Undaunted, he continued the

assault. He dove at the planes, trying to clip a wing or tail in hopes

of damaging as many enemy planes as possible and rendering them unfit

to fly.

Finally, the exasperated Japanese squadron took off in another

direction. Deeply relieved, Butch O'Hare and his tattered fighter limped back to

the carrier. Upon arrival he reported in and related the event surrounding

his return.

The film from the gun-camera mounted on his plane told the tale. It

showed the extent of Butch's daring attempt to protect his fleet. He had

in fact destroyed five enemy aircraft.

This took place on February 20, 1942, and for that action Butch became

the Navy's first Ace of W.W.II, and the first Naval Aviator to win the

Congressional Medal of Honor. A year later Butch was killed in aerial

combat at the age of 29. His home town would not allow the memory of

this WW II hero to fade, and today, O'Hare Airport in Chicago is named

in tribute to the courage of this great man.

So, the next time you find yourself at O'Hare International, give some

thought to visiting Butch's memorial displaying his statue and his Medal

of Honor. It's located between Terminals 1 and 2.

Whats New In Sunrider? Vitalite SunBars - have been upgraded and improved. They will be packaged in a smaller bar, about half the size of the one we have now. They will be packaged 30 bars per box, and will be softer, moister and tastier than before. Watch for the launch date. The new bars will become available when current inventory is used up.

Did You Know. …

THAT....antioxidants are chemicals that are found in fruits and vegetables as well as in the special formulations of Calli tea and Fortune Delight beverage? They include Vitamin C, Vitamin E and minerals selenium, catechins and other substances. Antioxidants chemically neutralize “free radicals,” which are unstable molecules that try to grab electrons from your cells, damaging them in the process. Free radicals have been implicated with disease and signs of premature aging. So, getting sufficient antioxidants is important for good health – and there’s no more enjoyable way to consume catechins than Sunrider Calli and Fortune Delight.

THAT…Sunrider’s Action CapsVitalight Caps are an ephedra-free high-performance formula of herbal concentrates that nourishe the body’s ability to digest and process the proteins and fat in the diet? They also help the body to start moving out the existing fat stored in the cells so the fat can be burned in the muscles and used for energy. It is very important to drink Fortune Delight when consuming Action Caps. Action Caps are the fat movers, while Fortune Delight is the fat flusher. Action Caps initiate cleansing fat out of the body.

THATto concentrate plants, Dr. Chen separates the oils and the water-based fluids (which is where the nutrients are), spray-dries them together and eliminates the indigestible fluid. He takes special precautions to keep the oils from evaporating, to keep precipitates from forming, to keep enzyme reactions from changing the chemical properties of the plants. Four to seven pounds of herbs are powerfully concentrated down to one pound (some foods 30 pounds to 1) by extracting the “nectar” of the herbs.

THAT…Sunrider’s Vitalite SunBars consist of 8 grams of fiber. This is the same as 4 heads of lettuce or 11 carrots!! Most diseases start in the colon from the toxicity that comes from fermenting foods that have often been there for years. There are some 78 chemicals, including alcohol and formaldehyde that are produced in the colon from these fermenting foods. The fiber in the SunBar is split into three types: soluble (absorbs toxins), semi-soluble (becomes like jelly and softens the waste and insoluble (sweeps our intestines like a broom). The Vitalite SunBar is also 30% protein, from very digestible sources.


THAT… it’s no secret - Losing weight is no fun. What’s more, after the big battle, gaining it all back can be very frustrating. Losing weight is a national obsession and for good reason: It’s a threat to our national health. Being overweight continues to remain a cause for concern until we begin to address the real cause of this condition: Poor Health. That’s right! If you’re even a little overweight, it’s not because you ate too many donuts. It’s because your body isn’t working at its full capacity.


THAT… We’ve all heard the only real way to lose weight is to cut calories. Millions continue to hold onto this theory, forcing the body to burn stored calories by taking in fewer calories than are really needed for proper nourishment. Cutting calories doesn’t work. The fact is, we don’t gain weight by overeating, nor do we lose it by under-eating. Consider the millions of people who eat to excess daily and don’t gain weight.


THAT Fortune Delight helps flush fat and toxicity from your body as well as aids in digestion. If you put oil or grease on your hands and rinse them in warm Fortune Delight, the oil or grease will come off. I have always loved a hot Fortune Delight after a meal to help aid in digestion. Fortune Delight helps break down and emulsify fat. Think of the benefits of having Fortune Delight after eating a huge turkey dinner, or eating rich desserts!


THAT… Sunrider’s SunTrim Caps help to control your appetite. This formula is a natural way to help the body convert more of its carbohydrates into glycogen. Normally when we take in carbohydrates, the carbs which we don’t use for energy are stored as fat. But if they are stored as glycogen, this is extra energy stored in the liver for quick burning. As well, SunTrim shuts down the pyloric valve so people feel fuller.


THAT… SunCare/SunCare Plus (SunnyDew or Sunectar in the U.S.) is very beneficial to your adrenals and pancreas. It has been used in Paraguay for over half a century to treat diabetes. This product is converted very slowly into blood sugar. The body digests this formula like a bean providing blood sugar for roughly four hours or more. This is very balancing and can be very beneficial to people with or without blood sugar problems. When you consider the result of consuming simple carbohydrates on your blood sugar levels, you can see why many people won’t be without their Stevia.
