A brewery was appealing to kids to buy their mother beer as a thanks for all her hard work: Say cheers to one of the greats this Mother's Day with a personalised box of Speight's,' they invited. <a href='https://www.google.com.ni/url?q=https://http://fastrubbish.co.uk'>I</a> can think of many ways I'd like my sons to thank me for all the work I do for them. <a href='https://www.google.nl/url?q=https://http://fastrubbish.co.uk'>Scented</a> candles, bath bombs, breakfast in bed, even just a big hug and athanks, Mum! But a box of personalised beer? I'm particularly annoyed to think my fifteen-year-old might have seen this ad in his own Instagram feed, and be manipulated by its glossy appearance. It's not just obvious sales and marketing tactics that are being used by the industry to manipulate women. Where they've become really clever is through analysing and understanding our shopping behaviours. According to industry insider Natalie, a feisty and impassioned former liquor sales executive who shares her personal story next, it's gone far beyond blatant marketing ploys. They are very careful to be seen to be treading a line, but then they pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to re-create liquor-store setups, putting in test shoppers and using laser trackers to see where their eyes are scanning and how long it takes them to make a purchase--' I stop her mid-sentence. But Natalie leaves no doubt as to how deeply the industry has analysed the female consumer: `They know that women generally make a purchase in under three minutes, that they generally will have between one and three children with them at the time. One way of dealing with the unpredictability of sugar blockers is to combine them. If one sugar blocker has less of a blood sugar-lowering effect for you than predicted, another might have more of an effect. Also, as I mentioned in article 4, their sugar-blocking effects add up--especially if they act on different parts of the digestive process at once. For example, researchers have found that combining soluble fiber, a sponge-type sugar blocker, with vinegar, an enzyme inhibitor, reduces after-meal blood sugar more than doubling the amount of either sugar blocker alone. In Part III you'll learn several ways to combine sugar blockers. THE IDEAL Eating Style SCIENTISTS HAVE STUDIED dozens of different diets, and while much controversy remains as to what constitutes an ideal eating style, some themes have emerged. As it turns out, the diets that have been most consistently associated with reduced risk of diabetes and heart disease are ones that contain plenty of natural sugar blockers. An example is what's known as the Mediterranean diet, which the American Heart Association now recommends as a healthy eating style. This way of eating resembles the customary diets of Italy and Greece, including Crete.

These hand signals are a form of body language that we use to convey specific messages to others. Another example is a handshake. A handshake is a nonverbal way of saying that you are welcoming someone to make contact with you and is a friendly greeting upon meeting someone new. Another example of conscious body language are facial expressions. There are many facial expressions that we consciously make in order to convey messages to people. Facial expressions can convey anger, sadness or happiness. Humans often make these facial expressions to tell others how they feel without speaking. Have you ever been with your partner in a situation where they said something that frustrated you and you gave them a look to let them know that they will be hearing about it when you are alone later? With this one simple facial expression, they know what is to come. F or the remainder of this section, we will focus on the more subtle and more nuanced type of body language which are called unconscious displays of body language . They know what price point they're looking for, they know where on the shelf to have it, they know what wording to use. They are much more advanced than making products that will fit casks of wine in them. They play in a whole other league. As horrendous as being profiled right down to our eye movements sounds, it's all above board. As Natalie points out, liquor companies are merely utilising technology to understand how to position their brands so that customers recognise and purchase them in minimal time. Many different companies and industries are doing that. The deeper problem when it comes to alcohol is that, on top of clever sales techniques, its manufacturers are also allowed to make all the wild marketing claims they like about the supposedly positive benefits of their products, while at the same time ignoring--or misleading about--the downsides. The only way to stop that and end the manipulation of women through misleading propaganda is to regulate against it. Make it illegal for liquor companies to make endless positive claims about their products and force them to label their products as inherently dangerous. Sadly, worryingly, frustratingly, this is not something my government, or the governments in any other booze-soaked countries, appear to be looking at doing any time soon.

Traditionally, the inhabitants of those countries ate plenty of fat and cholesterol, but they also consumed more fruit, vegetables, nuts, olive oil, vinegar, salads, and wine than Americans do--all foods that inhibit the absorption of starch. In one large European study, adherence to this eating pattern reduced diabetes and heart disease rates by more than half. Actually, Americans eat those foods, too, just not as much or as consistently as the Greeks and Italians do. By cutting out as much starch as you can and consuming lots of natural starch blockers, chances are you will enjoy the same benefits. THE SUGAR BLOCKERS DIET ON THE FIRST article of article 1, I said that it doesn't matter if you're a strict vegetarian, a voracious carnivore, or an incurable chocoholic. The important thing is that you block sugar. Now you understand why: Eating fat is not what makes you fat. Eating cholesterol does not cause high blood cholesterol. Carbohydrates per se are not the problem. We can gain more valuable information from this type of body language for the following reason. Any person can consciously put out an image to the world that represents how they wish to be perceived. This is how each person wishes to be seen and is put forth consciously. This is the type of outward expression that we would read from people if we took all of their actions at face value. However, it takes skill and knowledge to look for and decode the subtle, unconscious messages that people do not realize they are conveying through their body language. There are hints that we will learn to look for that will tell us what a person is really thinking or feeling, as well as whether or not it is something different from what they are saying or actively trying to show. You will get a better understanding of this in the next section. H ow To Read Body Language Cues And Figure Out What They Mean Before we begin looking at specific body language cues, it is important to note that in an interaction with another person, even a completely nonverbal interaction, many of these nonverbal communications and cues will be happening at the same time. These all work together to give you an impression or a reading of the person you are interacting with.

I never saw a life without alcohol. I worked in pubs from the age of sixteen, and at 24 I was hired by one of the largest global liquor companies as a sales rep. I was so naive. They would send me into small towns with big drinking problems. Some of these places were so rough, there would be drunk people passed out on the street at ten o'clock in the morning. They'd drop me in there once every two months to load up and make my targets, and the way that they spoke about the people we were selling alcohol to was horrific. They were just a cash cow. That was my induction into working in the liquor industry. It was pretty eye-opening. In the liquor sales business, you're all selling identical products, and the only differentiating factor is the brand itself, so it's an incredibly competitive environment. The problem is carbs that are absorbed into your bloodstream too quickly. If your diet is typical, you squander most of the insulin that your beta cells make on after-meal blood sugar spikes. Excessive insulin production makes you fat and wears out your insulin-making cells. If your goal is to lose weight and prevent diabetes and heart disease, the evidence is in: It does no good to avoid eggs, meat, dairy products, or fatty plant products such as nuts, olives, and avocados. Nor should you avoid good carbs like fresh fruits and vegetables. In fact, you can even have a few bad carbs. You just need to make sure the carbohydrates you eat trickle into your bloodstream slowly and don't rush in all at once. The next article will show you how to fit sugar blockers into your regular eating patterns. And in article 10, you'll learn how to use sugar-blocking techniques in real-life situations. PUTTING THE PLAN INTO ACTION

For example, someone's facial expression coupled with their distance from you can tell you that they may be uncomfortable or upset. We are all dynamic beings and none of these things will happen entirely independently. Keeping this in mind when entering an interaction with another person will aid you in your analysis of them and the things that they are telling you without saying a word. W e will now begin to look at unconscious body language by studying different areas of the body. We will examine all of these different areas of the body and what they may be telling us by their different actions. F acial Body Language The face is where we will begin. The face is very involved when it comes to deciphering nonverbal communication because it has so much to tell us. There are many different places to look for clues on the face. The first one we will discuss is the eyes. The push from your employer is to win over publicans by drinking and partying with them, all on the corporate card and often outside of work hours. They look for a certain type of salesperson--I can see that in hindsight. Someone in their early to mid twenties, channelling a kind of party vibe, but still looking quite healthy. That was definitely me at the time. I was drinking really heavily, but I was still young enough that I could do that and turn up to work the next day. After a couple of years I was headhunted by a big global liquor company. That was even more of a work hard, play hard culture. A week after I started we flew away on a vineyard tour. I was with a group of guys, because the liquor industry is very blokey, and it was an anything-goes culture--shots of tequila at ten-thirty in the morning type of thing. We got totally hammered on our first night there, and they all talked the barmaids into coming back to their hotel rooms.
