Make your body think it's had GASTRIC BYPASS!!

I know that a lot of my recent posts have been regarding weightloss. This is totally where my head is right now. I've been fighting and fighting with it for years. So why stop now, right? I'm going to keep going until I find somethng that works for me and something that works for you. They don't have to be the same, we just need them to work, yes? YES!!

So this bit of info, I found in a Woman's Day (issue March 5, 2012). It claims that if you fill up on 10-15 grams of miracle fiber (resistant starch) that it will force your body to burn more fat and cause you to feel fuller faster. Well, what exactly are resistant starches? Here is a list that they had.

Food                              Grams of Resistant Starch
Slightly green banana                    13
ripe banana                                   5
1/2 C white beans                         4
1 C potatoes cooked AND
      cooled                                    3
1/2 C garbanzo beans                   2
1 C whole wheat pasta                 2
1/2 C brown rice                          2
1/2 C peas                                   2
1/2 C black beans                        2
1 slice rye bread                           1
1 C corn flakes                             1
1 C oatmeal                                  1

Added benefits of resistant starches:

1. They help prevent diabetes
2. They soothe your belly by boosting good bacteria to reduce bloat and gas
3. They help fight precancerous cells in the colon.

Now as usual, you need to modify your diet, low in sugar and starch. And of course you need some level of exercise. These tips will merely help boost your weightloss. Good luck. Let me know if it works for you.

Fill up on fruits veggies  nuts, etc, and eat only 10% of dairy, meats, and sweets

Bust your belly with supplements!

Ok guys, so summer is right around the block and I know that a lot of you are working on that tummy region. Well, our good ole' guy, Dr. Oz had a show on the other day suggesting some vitamins and minerals that can be used to help with just that. I've taken the liberty of putting them all in one place for you.

I've also done some research and added the best prices found on the web. Please do your own research as I have not purchased these items from these shops. Please also remember that there is no quick fix. Diet and exercise make all the difference in the world. These supplements are just that. Good luck!! Let me know if they work for you!!

 7-Keto: Helps boost metabolism by stimulating thyroid gland and converting fat to muscle. Take 100MG in the AM and 100MG in the PM.

Forskolin: Helps the body melt away fat cells. Take 125mg (20% forskolin on the label)in the AM.

Caraway seeds: Helps to diminish the bloated feeling by diminishing gas. Take a pinch after every meal.

Relora: Helps regulate the stress hormone Cortisol which contribute to extra belly fat. Take 250mg 3 times per day at each meal.

And an added bonus to help curb your appetite, try:

Saffron Extract (only the Satiereal blend): Take 88mg twice daily.

NEW Hair tips

Hey guys, saw Tabatha Coffey on Dr. Oz the other day.

She suggests Viviscal (a vitamin supplement) for thinning hormonal hair, it promotes growth and strength. $50 for 60 tablets in most drug stores. Not suggested for balding. Good for hair thinning due to stress or lack of hormones.

If you have dull, grey hair, Aveda makes Blue Mlva which is a violet shampoo. Violet/blue is opposite yellow on the color wheel which means that it will neutralize the brassy, orangey yellow tones.

For brittle and dry hair, try Joico K-Pak Revialuxe $22 (which I can ates too) as a hair treatment. You can find it at Ulta...loooove this product!! Use it up to 3 times a week for dry hair, and once a week for maintaining hair health.

Enjoy guys!!
