Meet the Three Fem-Preneurs Who Are Leveling the Playing Field With Men In the Weight Loss World
By Betty Taylor
A lifestyle editor. A fitness expert. A nutrition guru. What do they have in common? They want to help you look – and feel – like you’re living your happiest and healthiest life! While waiting to be rescued on a desert island, Julie Sagoskin, an editor-in-chief fitness phenom Lisa Avellino and nutrition ninja Jacqui Justice dedicated their days to creating products that would make women leaner, sexier and more satisfied. Okay – that’s not exactly how it happened, but these three powerful women DO want to rescue you from being stranded with toxic, artificial products in your cabinets.
While on a celebrity photo shoot, Julie met Lisa and Jacqui who had come with their A-list client who was in top shape and drinking some of Jacqui’s creative concoctions. With her on-the-go New York lifestyle, Julie realized that she too could use a well-deserved wellness boost. Upon meeting with both Lisa and Jacqui at Balance 3H Plus Medical Weight Loss & Aesthetic Spa for Women, New York’s top premiere weight loss center in New York, she was blown away by their cutting-edge methods. She was able to incorporate their diet and fitness plans into her busy schedule directing shoots, planning cover parties and overseeing the editorial direction of the magazine. The three became fast friends and realized that they all shared the same desire to empower and educate other women on how to be their most successful selves.
During a much-needed girl’s night out, Julie expressed that she didn’t have time to keep a regimented diet or fitness schedule. Wouldn’t it be great to just spritz yourself skinny? She joked. While it might have seemed funny at the time, this was no laughing matter – these three women wanted to help each other and others out there, and decided that the time had come to find a way for women to manage their metabolism without making sacrifices. Unsatisfied with the current products on the market, they knew they wanted to create a trusted brand that would include all-natural ingredients, and The Skinny Line was born.
Let’s just say that after a lot of research and hard work, you can now spritz yourself skinny! These three dedicated and devoted ladies wanted all women to be able to find scientifically backed products that would help them regain their confidence, whether on the catwalk or in their corner office. You might be able to curb cravings with Skinny Suppress, but more importantly, you won’t be suppressed any longer!
It’s time to meet these three powerful female entrepreneurs – who like to call themselves FEM-preneurs – and are on a mission to level the playing field when it comes to weight loss results between men and women. Women might retain more fat, but that doesn’t mean they can’t shed the pounds at the same rapid rate as their husbands!
We all know that women are the stronger sex, so why is it harder for us to lose weight? You know what I’m talking about – you keep a strict low-carb diet, you sign up for every spin cycle glass at the local gym, and you might notice that you lost a pound or two – all the while, you watch how easily it is for the pounds to come off fast and furiously for your boyfriend who puts in the same effort as you do – or less!
While it’s true that women have more body fat than men, the narrative that it is medically impossible for women to lose weight as quickly as men, even when on the same diet and fitness regimen, is now false – due to The Skinny Line! Biological factors are behind the reason why body fat content is 25 percent for women at a normal size compared to just 15 percent for men. After all, naturally women have more fat due to the fact that they carry babies.
All other things being equal, such as age and exercise levels, women require fewer calories per pound of body weight daily than do men. That’s because it’s not our fault, it’s our high heels – and hormones! That’s right, female hormones make it easier to convert food into fat, and the fat is targeted to your waistline. For women in their 20s and 30s, birth control pills also cause the body to produce increased amounts of fat and water. Estrogen alone will cause increase deposition of fat. If you’re on the pill, you need to decrease calorie intake by at least 10 percent just to maintain the same weight. After 40, keeping up with men becomes even more of a metabolic fight! The key to weight loss at this stage is fat calorie control and targeted nutrition that balances hormones. While losing weight in your 50s and 60s becomes even slower, keeping fit and finding ways to lose weight will improve your energy and overall health and well-being, inside and out – men aren’t the only ones who deserve to feel good about themselves!
American women are being lied to by the medical community. They are being told over and over again that they cannot lose the required weight as fast as men. Well guess what? Women aren’t going to take it anymore – it’s time to fight fat fairly! Just when women reach the pinnacle of their careers and confidence levels, they are being taken down in an untimely fashion due to inflammation, obesity, and unnecessary hysterectomies. The Skinny Line was designed exclusively for women’s unique physiology. It’s 2020, which means it’s time for women to finally be even with men when it comes to standing on the scale!
It might not be fair, but now women have a chance to take on men – and win the weight loss game! Based on clinically proven and “Science First” research, not trendy diet plans, the real end result is a series of specially formulated products with bio-identical compounds used by the weight loss industry’s leading medical professionals. Exclusively designed for fierce women by other fierce women, these products galvanize women, giving them the impetus to get out there and tackle their own targeted fat areas as fast as men – it’s time for women to get off of the weight loss sidelines and finally score!
These FEM-preneurs have climbed their way to the top of the wellness world, and they want to help take you to new – and healthier – heights. They wouldn’t let men win the weight loss game, and neither should you! Lisa, Jacqui and Julie are here to rescue you from the deep, dark depths of fad dieting. Instead, they want to lead you to a lighter you. Don’t sink to the bottom of despair, get in line for the Skinny Line and join the FEM-preneur club. With the SCIENCE FIRST philosophy behind every product, you can make sure you are treating your body to safe and healthy ingredients. Whether it’s a spritz or a shake, these easy-to-use products can be used at work, during your commute or any time in between your hectic schedule. REAL FEM-preneurs don’t just get to the peak of skinny success, they bring other women along for the ride – or climb – a philosophy close to the hearts of the brand’s founders, who wish to fulfill every woman’s weight loss wish list.
By creating a unique proprietary blend of African Mango, Green Coffee Bean, and Raspberry Ketone Extract(s), Jacqui was able to develop the best-selling Skinny Spritz. This Sublingual Lipotropic Spray is an all-natural way to lose weight and to maintain a healthy body weight. Increase your metabolism and burn fat as fast – or faster than men – with just one small spritz! It can also improve the immune and nervous systems, especially crucial in today’s pandemic pandemonium.
Get ready to shake yourself skinny with Skinny Shake, a nutrient-rich shake mix which was also developed by nutrition ninja Jacqui and is 100 percent vegan! It is also gluten and dairy free. Animal fats, which are commonly found in most other weight loss products, can lead to cancer and other diseases, but this tasty and satisfying shake is made with all-natural ingredients, including a vegan protein blend. All-natural never tasted – or helped you shake it off – like this before!
Lisa, Jacqui and Julie love inspiring and educating women on their way to finding their best looking – and feeling – self so much that they were asked to sign on as hosts of their own radio show called “Ladies, It’s Not Our Fault, It’s Our Hormones and High Heels!” which airs every Saturday from 9-10am on AM 970 The Answer, one of New York’s widest reaching stations. The show, which focuses on how wellness meets fashion, and delves into how each industry influences and impacts the other, is the first of its kind. If you want to hear what these three strong, stylish and savvy high-heeled women have to say, you will have to tune in for witty, smart and humorous tips, tricks and so much more. They even announced the launch of The Skinny Line live on the air while famed loungewear fashion designer, Josie Natori, was in the studio for a pajama party. Josie was so excited about the launch that she stayed for the remainder of the show to hear more and ask her own questions. As high-profile working women, these FEM-preneurs want to help women shed their love handles on their journey to loving themselves, both inside and out.
Lisa, Jacqui and Julie invite you to join them every Saturday morning for fun and informative conversations with their celebrity guests. They also talk about The Skinny Line on their show, so make sure to tune in and learn how to make one of Jacqui’s healthy juices, or find out what “taking a shower on the inside” really means! If you missed one of their most listened to segments, like when famed fashion icon Nicole Miller discussed how she handled a virtual Fashon Week this year and how she keeps in shape – let’s just say that it involves a lot of spin classes – you can listen to their podcast page on am970theanswer.com. Oh, and Nicole wants you to make sure to wear one of her very stylish masks!
While you might get plenty of style tips from Julie – let’s just say she wants you to invest in a classic or cutting-edge leather jacket – or posture lessons from Lisa, their honest, heart to heart conversations are some of the most meaningful parts of the program. When the creator of The Cheetah Girls franchise, Deborah Gregory, came on the show, along with her best friend, Beverly Johnson, Deborah opened up about her personal story growing up in the foster care system and how writing The Cheetah Girls allowed her to immerse herself in a world she wishes she could have been a part of as a child. Meanwhile, the recently engaged Beverly Johnson, the first African American woman to appear on the cover of Vogue, as well as the French edition of Elle, explained that she is ready to embrace the biggest chapter of her life and career in her 70s!
Perhaps the most winning warrior of them all was special guest Joan Lunden, New York Times best-selling author and Good Morning America host for three decades. This breast cancer survivor, who recently released her most candid book yet, did not hold back. Lunden explained that while age might come with wisdom, it also comes with a leaky bladder! Not to worry – Jacqui and Lisa’s healthy food and fitness tips will keep every body in sexy shape, regardless of age. According to Lisa, doing even small workouts at a time can add up. Cutting out sugar – and yes, that includes wine – is one of Jacqui’s most crucial tips. Wondering if you can wear ripped jeans past 40? Julie says yes! Just pair it with a solid top or sweater.
Whether they are wearing low-rise jeans due to their daily Skinny Spritz’s while sailing on the high seas, you know, just a typical day at work, or wearing sweatpants (cute ones!) at home while catching up on work emails, these FEM-preneurs have made it their mission to conquer the wellness world. Pamper yourself with The Skinny Line products, listen to their cutting-edge radio show and get ready to be a member of this powerful leading ladies club! What’s next for these fierce leaders? Tune in every Saturday at 9am on AM 970 The Answer to find out!
