Introducing ZenFrames
ZenFrames can help you change the way you see yourself. Once you have this new

Every day men and women are discovering the power |
of ZenFrames so they can finally stop struggling with
cravings, junk food addictions and nighttime eating.
Randy - My 3-year success
"My weight-loss journey with ZenFrames started as a
New Year's resolution. Instantly, I slept better at night
and my habits started changing. I drank a lot of water. I'd go to the fridge and
automatically be drawn to the fruits and vegetables. I've been able to
reprogram my brain so the way I look at food and life are different.
That's why I'm confident I'm going to keep my weight off for good."
Why does Randy keep his weight off
When so many others fail? Here's one clue.
Millions of Americans increasingly share a new malady
called conditioned hyper-eating, a willpower-sapping drive
to eat - especially high-fat, high-sugar foods - even when not hungry.
This condition occurs in the brain where these foods light up the
brain's dopamine (pleasure-sensing) pathways - the same path-
way that conditions people to alcohol or drugs. According to the
research, this factor is one of the root causes of the obesity
epidemic in our country and overeaters must "retrain their
brains" to resist the lure.
ZenFrames brainwave entertainment technology can do just
that - help eliminate conditioned hyper-eating by reconditioning
your thoughts and emotions relating to food. After all, what good would it do for
to lose all your weight only to fall back into the habit of conditioned hyper-eating
that caused the weight in the first place? The solution...

The question of whether Omni Hotels would
offer DP benefits at the facility was first raised
in a Dallas Voice article in April 2009 — two
months after the city had signed a 15-year op-
erating agreement with the company for the
$500 million hotel.
The article appeared days before the vote on
a referendum aimed at barring the city from
building and owning the hotel. Mayor Tom
Leppert, a major supporter of the hotel, as-
sured the newspaper that he would convince
the company to: offer DP benefits, even though
it had not been considered as part of the oper-
ating agreement.
The referendum was defeated, and six weeks
later, both Leppert's office and the North Texas
GLBT Chamber of Commerce announced that
Omni had agreed to offer DP benefits — al-
though the company wouldn't confirm it at the
"Until you [Dallas Voice] raised the issue, it
wasn't on people's radar," said Chris Hein-
baugh, who's openly gay and was Leppert's
chief of staff. "A light bulb went off. It was a
Significant step for the city.**'
It reportedly marked the first time the city
has prompted a contractor to offer DP benefits.

Performing Arts Center, declined to discuss in
detail the negotiations that led to Omni's com-
mitment to offer DP benefits. Leppert is run-
ning for U.S. Senate as a Republican and has
come out against both same-sex marriage and
civil unions.
Aspokesman for Leppert's campaign didn't
respond to a request for comment.
In addition to agreeing to offer DP benefits,
Omni Hotels joined the North Texas GLBT
Chamber in 2009. Tony Vedda, president and
CEO of the chamber, said this week the com-
pany remains a silver level corporate member,,
which means an annual contribution of $5J)00
to the organization.
"I certainly assumed that they were going to
stick to their word [on DP benefits]," Vedda
said. "It would be devastating if we Were told
one thing and something else occurred."
Vedda said the chamber would also like to
see Omni offer DP benefits at its publicly
owned convention center hotel in Fort Worth.
Fort Worth began offering domestic partner
benefits to municipal employees last year. ■
