The chemicals found in pesticides go from the food we eat directly into our bodies. These pesticides have been shown to negatively affect our brain chemistry, reduce resting metabolic rate, increase insulin resistance, increase body weight and act like estrogen mimickers (xenoestrogens), which elevate the body’s level of fat storing hormones.
Chemicals like benzoapyrene and insecticides have been documented as possible contributing factors to weight gain and obesity. The widely used herbicide atrazine (ATZ) has been associated with decreasing resting metabolic rate and increasing body weight, intra-abdominal fat and insulin resistance—independent of any change in your food intake or physical activity level.
The bottom line is: Buy organic as much as possible. If you are not used to buying organic, start gradually purchasing predominately organic fruits and vegetables. The first foods to focus on buying organic are “The Dirty Dozen,” fruits and vegetables documented by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) as having the highest pesticide residue.

Kirstie Talks to Diets in Review About Her Youthful Secrets
Kirstie recently sat down with Diets in Review, a leading diet review site that named Organic Liaison among the Top 25 Most Popular Diets of 2012.
Asked about her secret to looking younger and better than ever (especially during her January 12th interview with Entertainment Tonight), Kirstie said:
“I’m really happy, and that’s sort of the biggest key. What I’ve discovered is energy is the most important thing to me. I want to have a lot of energy and be very strong and be able to do anything I want to do. That makes me happier. I need to be at a certain weight to do that and I need to be on the lean side.”
Regarding Organic Liaison, Kirstie also confessed: “My goal wasn’t necessarily to create a diet but a way to live your life so you weren’t in misery. I made it easy for myself.” In the process of developing Organic Liaison, she asked a team of experts: “I want to eat too much of the wrong things and I have no energy and I’m not sleeping well—what is happening?” Kirstie revealed that she directed her scientists to “find a non-drug solution to each one of those problems, and to do so naturally and organically.”
At 62 years old, Kirstie is thriving with the help of an organic eating plan, consistent exercise, and regular use of Rescue Me, Release Me, and Nightingale. How? Get all the details in the full interview, here.
Join Kirstie, Kelly Preston, and our OL members in adopting a permanent healthy lifestyle.
Happy Birthday, Kirstie
from the Organic Liaison Family!
On behalf of everyone who sent us birthday wishes for Kirstie, Organic Liaison would like say Happy Birthday to our leading lady. 62 has never been hotter!
Kirstie celebrated her 62nd birthday this past Saturday, January 12. She looked slim and radiant as she welcomed Entertainment Tonight’s Rob Marciano into her beautiful Wichita, Kansas home for a home-cooked, organic meal.
On maintaining her 100-pound weight loss for over a year, Kirstie confessed: “My interest isn’t being skinny-minnie and wearing a size two. I think I look good and I’m lean and strong.” She credited Organic Liaison, a combination of organic eating, healthy supplements and exercise, for helping her conquer the weight.
Kirstie and Rob followed their helping of delicious, organic beef and quinoa stuffed tacos with a refreshing glass of Rescue Me—Kirstie’s go-to source for essential vitamins and nutrients, help with hunger cravings, and that helpful boost in natural energy.
Rescue Me is the first USDA certified organic weight loss product, containing NO GMOs, NO artificial ingredients, and NO chemicals or additives. Have what Kirstie’s having today, with our special $99 Rescue Me Kit Deal—a $40 savings on the complete Organic Liaison Program!

If you are feeling bloated and tired of your typical carb choices, or if you just want to add some variety to your nutrient intake, going gluten free is a great change. You don’t have to go exclusively gluten free, especially if you don’t have celiac disease or a significant gluten intolerance or allergy. Just have a couple gluten-free meals throughout the week to give your body a taste of something new (and healthy)! Luckily, it’s easy to find gluten-free alternatives.
To eat gluten free, substitute your gluten grains (barley, rye, oat, and wheat), with any of the following: brown/wild rice, quinoa, millet, amaranth, buckwheat, polenta, yams, butternut squash, acorn squash, spaghetti squash, winter squash, green peas, corn, or organic potatoes with skin. Eat fruit, gluten-free breads, brown rice cakes, or gluten-free cereals as your carbohydrate source in place of gluten items. Try gluten-free cereals like Puffins (corn based), puffed millet or quinoa flakes. (To increase your fiber intake, add 1-2 tbsp of ground flaxseeds to your cereal bowl.)
Who says you can’t have it all? Proving that holiday indulgences can be both satisfying AND healthy, Kelly invites EXTRA into her home to taste some of her favorite holiday recipes, straight from Kirstie’s Cafe—Organic Liaison’s recipe collection. From Agave Sweetened Brownies to robust Banana Nog, Kelly’s spread is all about delicious food without the guilt!

Today, Kirstie is filming the pilot for her much-anticipated TV Land comedy Giant Baby in front of a live studio audience!
Kirstie stars as Madison “Maddie” Banks, a Broadway star who gave her son up for adoption 26 years ago. Her son, Arlo, returns to her life looking to reconnect with his birth mother after his adopted mother dies. According to TV Land, “Maddie doesn’t exactly see nerdy and schlubby Arlo fitting in with her luxurious lifestyle. When her attempt to change Arlo backfires, Maddie finds that perhaps they both could use a little change in their lives.”
Kirstie is joined by a talented cast of fellow comedy veterans: former Cheers co-star Rhea Perlman and Seinfeld’s Michael Richards. “Giant Baby” also stars Switched at Birth’s Gilles Marini (Kirstie’s fellow competitor from the latest season of Dancing with the Stars) and Eric Peterson.
With an A-list team and hilarious writing to work with, Kirstie can’t wait to share Giant Baby with you! Stay tuned for new updates on the pilot!
