Dr. Janine Bowring Returns to The Shopping Channel

I’m so blessed and happy to announce my return to The Shopping Channel after the birth of my fourth baby, Isaiah, who was born at the end of November. Despite sleepless nights and the sometimes exhausting feat of caring for my other children, plus nursing the baby, it is surprising even to me of my ability to bounce back after baby number four!

People often ask me, “What’s your secret?” and “How can you possibly look and feel so good such a short time after having a baby?” Honestly speaking, I give the credit to my VitaTree supplements. They help to give me the vitality I need to carry out my daily routine with work, the children and my life in general. I don’t know what I would do without my supplements! I’ve said on air numerous times that I formulated the supplements for all our viewers and my patients, but first and foremost, for myself and my family.

High quality, Whole Food Vitamins simply didn’t exist in the marketplace, without synthetic vitamins and fillers, until I created the VitaTree Nutritionals supplement line. I wanted the best for myself and my family, and that’s exactly what a large number of people can now enjoy when they take any of the VitaTree products.

I’m so excited to bring in the New Year with a great Today’s Showstopper on January 11th, our extremely popular VitaTree Fat Burner. There is no better time of year to actively pursue a healthier diet, exercise and weight loss regime than in January, just after the holiday season when most of us have overdone it with food, drinks and festivities.

The key to long-term successful weight loss includes healthy lifestyle choices, detoxification and using natural whole food nutrients that boost the metabolism and can give us vital energy to be able to exercise with increased stamina and endurance.  I have formulated  very effective products, namely the VitaDetox and VitaTree Fat Burner for targeted weight loss, especially belly fat, that are safe, easy to take, and do not contain harmful stimulants as most other supplements in this genre. I encourage everyone to tune in to my fun and informative shows on January 11th to learn vital health information that can be easily implemented into everyone’s lifestyle, no matter what age or level of health. If you’ve had great success as so many others with the VitaTree Formulas, please call into my shows so we can hear all about it!

This year you will also have a chance to enter our exciting new contest and win a year’s supply of VitaFruits and VitaVeggies!  To enter, you must submit a suitable photo of yourself “before” and “after” using VitaTree Fat Burner along with your weight loss goal.  For full contest rules, visit and shop VitaTree here.

Portion Control - Why It Will Work For You!

We always hear the same old dieting banter - “I went on my diet and the pounds came back” or “I don’t know how to cut bad food from my life!”

Short of starvation or going under the knife, many people struggle when it comes to weight loss. Especially when it’s just shaving your calorie count off the top so you’re ingesting all that you need to.

Over the course of time, people just give up and don’t know how to maintain a healthy weight while still enjoy the foods they love.

It’s natural for humans to want to consume everything they can in sight. Our bodies are made to store away in case an emergency happens. Plus, with all the food available to us, we can’t help but want to take it all in, whenever we can, as we no longer live in a world where we walk and search for food and eat. Our eating happens faster than our brains can tell us to stop!

There’s no denying that we, as a food-prevalent population, need help.

So, The Shopping Channel has the perfect solution!

Lifesize Portion Control System with Quick Guide

The Lifesize Portion Control System with Quick Guide is not a diet; it’s a new way of looking at the foods you love that shifts your focus from what you eat to how much you eat. The tools you need to properly portion out your meals are at your fingertips with this colourful, convenient system. It can be yours for $59.99.

Easy-to-use and understand, learn how to eat right without sacrificing those tempting goodies you can’t resist. The Lifesize Portion Measuring Cups help you portion out the foods you eat in a meal, snack or dessert food including meat, saucy dishes, dressings and liquids. Measure food in Lifesize Portions rather than grams or tablespoons. With the Lifesize Wall Chart you’ll be able to check the chart to determine how to portion your food and which measuring device to use.

Each measuring device has a corresponding box on the chart and lists portion sizes for common foods that don’t fit the measuring devices, including bread and eggs. The sheet also lists out the “free foods” that you don’t have to portion out which include all fruits, vegetables and most low-fat dairy items. Hang this sheet on your kitchen wall or in a kitchen cabinet for easy access as you prepare your meals and snacks. The Lifesize Program is five easy steps that teaches you three new eating habits and suggests the number of Lifesize Portions to eat in a meal and in a day.

See how easy that is?

Try it out today, if nothing else it will help you understand how much you SHOULD be digesting a day. And that is knowledge that will carry you for a lifetime.

Here’s what other customers of The Shopping Channel have to say about Harley Pasternak’s fitness program:

I love these workouts. All that is required is a small amount of space and some basic equipment, hand weights, possibly a chair and a mat. I love the flexibility to make the workout as easy or as hard as you need. I was a very disciplined exerciser for many years and recently lost motivation. When I saw Harley on TV I liked his enthusiasm so I thought I would give his system a try. I like the simple exercises and Harley gives you options to make the workout more intense or less intense. I feel it is a get back to basics system that doesn’t use gimmicks. I have been using these DVD’s for a few months now and I feel I’m back into a good exercise routine again. I purchased this for the DVD’s. However I did read the info on the diet plan and it too is a get back to basics, sensible eating plan. Overall I like Harley’s common sense approach to diet and exercise. - Lisa from Brampton, ON

After losing 40 lbs and with 20 to go, I lost motivation even though I have a lot of fitness equipment including a high end treadmill. I ordered this program on a whim, thinking I might use it once in a while for a little variety. WRONG! I cannot get enough and the rest of my equipment and DVDs might end up collecting a little dust. I like it so much I have ordered Harley’s book and looking at the other items he has to complete the set. Don’t hesitate, you will not be sorry with this purchase. - Donna from Eilliot Lake, ON

I purchased the DVDs 4 weeks ago and can’t get enough. It’s 25 mins in total which provides a total body workout. All you need is a small set of weights, a mat and a small workout space. It’s not a huge time commitment but if you challenge yourself….you’ll get a great workout and feel better. I highly recommend the 5 Factor Fitness DVDs. - Richard from Ottawa, ON
