It actually is very easy to drink and has a great taste to it. It is even a little sweet. I didn’t think it had a bad taste or even a bad aftertaste.

Does it work?

Yes! I had great success in the two days I used this diet. I lost about 8 pounds, although it says you can lose up to 10 pounds in the 48 hour period.

Being on the diet was challenging as you are only drinking for two days. You do not eat any solid foods. I didn’t feel sluggish or too tired which was a plus. I also didn’t have any cravings while using it. The big upside was feeling less bloated, slimmer, and better about having just lost 8 pounds in a hurry.

I checked website reviews to see what other people had thought about this diet and most reviews were favorable. The product has a 3.5 star rating on Amazon and twelve 5 star ratings on Wal-Mart.com.

If being on a liquid diet seems a little drastic, try the 3 Day Diet and lose up to 10 pounds in 3 days.

Burn More Fat by Cutting Back the Thermostat

Thermostat_01

Having trouble shedding that extra layer of fat around your belly? Maybe the temperature in your home is too warm. According to experts, you may burn more fat if you keep the temperature indoors a little cooler. Is it time to turn the thermostat down?

Cooler Indoor Temperatures Boost Fat Burning?

It feels good to have a toasty home and a blazing fire in the fireplace, but it may not do much for your waistline. In a paper published in the journal Obesity Reviews, the authors looked at evidence that warmer indoor temperatures are contributing to the rise in obesity.

They point out that temperatures indoors during the winter months have increased over the past few decades and have paralleled the rose in obesity rates. They emphasize that mild thermal stress that comes from being exposed to colder temperatures causes the body to burn more fat to stay warm. Shivering also forces the body to burn more energy. The overall amount of extra energy burned may be small, but it adds up on a daily basis.

Another Way Cooler Temperatures Boost Fat Burning

Recently, there’s been focus on brown fat. Brown fat is energy-rich fat that contains more mitochondria than ordinary white fat that pads the hips and tummy. Mitochondria are the powerhouses of cells and are involved in energy production, and the mitochondria in brown fat generate extra heat to keep the body warm.

Newborn babies have the greatest amount of brown fat for extra warmth. Kids lose much of their brown fat as they age, but even adults still have some, mostly around their back. This brown fat is normally dormant, but it becomes activated in cold environments. When it does, it promotes weight loss. Colder indoor temperatures help to activate this normally quiescent fat in adults.

Overall, the body burns more fat to help the body maintain body temperature in a cooler environment. Spending too much time indoors in higher temperatures turns off this fat-burning process, and, over time, can lead to weight gain.

Burn More Fat in Cool Indoor Temperatures: The Bottom Line?

Exercise is the best way to heat up your fat-burning engines and burn more fat, but keeping your home a little cooler can help too. As you might imagine, our thinner ancestors didn’t spend much time warming their hands by the fire in the winter. They were constantly moving and had no fear of braving the elements. To boost your fat burning capabilities, take more winter walks and cut back your thermostat a little. It’ll save on your electric bill too.

Does it Matter when You Take Vitamins and Supplements?

Does iVitamins and Supplements_01

Look at the directions on a bottle of vitamins or supplements and the manufacturer tells you how many to take. Period. So, being that we live in a busy society, it’s easy to down whatever you take daily in the morning. Then, you’re done. Unless you take vitamins or supplements more than once a day, that is. It’s just as easy to clump the next dose together and take them all at once too. It’s convenient, but is it healthy? Are we getting the full benefits of these pills? Read this informative article and find out if it matters when you take vitamins and supplements.

It Pays to Do a Little Research

I used to take several over-the-counter pills together every morning, including bromelain. It’s an enzyme found in pineapples. While researching another subject, I happened across an article on the University of Maryland Medical website that surprised me. It said, if you take bromelain to aid in your digestion, you should take it with meals.

bromelain_01

If you take it to help heal injuries or to treat arthritis, it should be taken on an empty stomach. So, when you take this supplement, before or with meals does make a difference.

Let’s use calcium as another example. If you take a calcium supplement and iron too, you can’t take them together because calcium interferes with the absorption of iron. Not only that, but, if you take calcium carbonate, you should take it with a meal. Your stomach acid helps your body absorb it better. This includes taking a multi-vitamin that contains iron as well.

calcium and iron supplement_01

It only makes sense to take your vitamins and supplements early in the day so your body can utilize them. According to evitamins.com, taking calcium before bedtime can help you sleep better. On the other hand, if you wait to take vitamin B6 at bedtime, studies show it can cause dreams and help keep you awake.

Conclusion

As you can tell, timing can be an important factor when it comes to your vitamins and supplements. I researched my pills so I know the best times to take them. I then organized them in a few 7-day pill containers so I know when to take which ones.

Why Melatonin Supplements Are Better Than Melatonin Rich Foods

Melatonin _01

I never could fall asleep easily. And the rare times when I could, I’d wake up in the middle of the night and be up for hours. It wasn’t until I learned about melatonin supplements that I was finally able to fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer. But melatonin is not just available in pill form. It can also be found in some foods. Still, I believe melatonin supplements are better than melatonin rich foods for anyone who desires a good night’s sleep.

Overview of melatonin

Melatonin is a hormone our bodies make naturally. It automatically increases during evening hours helping us fall asleep. You can buy melatonin tablets in the vitamin section of most grocery stores. Some foods that container higher amounts of melatonin include cherries/concentrate cherry juice, almonds, raspberries, bananas, and tomatoes. There are even melatonin laced snacks like brownies that promise a good night’s sleep.

Melatonin Supplements _01

Cost effectiveness

You can buy a bottle of melatonin supplements for around $7 for 100 3mg tablets. That’s 7 cents a day for a better night’s sleep. Higher dose supplements are also available. If you have store loyalty cards, you may save even more money. Many foods supposedly rich in melatonin only contain trace amounts, making it almost impossible to rely on them to do the job of one 7 cent pill.

Although concentrate tart cherry juice has more significant amounts of melatonin, a 16oz bottle could run you anywhere from $6-$12. And with 2 tablespoons being the recommended dose, that still comes to over 50 cents a day versus 7 cents daily.

Tart Cherry Juice_01

Availability

Melatonin supplements can be found at most grocery stores, pharmacies, and even big box stores like Target. Concentrate cherry juice tends to be sold more at health food stores which are not as plentiful as grocers and Targets. Yes it’s true, concentrate cherry juice also has wonderful anti-inflammatory qualities. But if your only goal is getting to sleep and you don’t suffer from something like arthritis, the anti-inflammatory argument is moot.

Safety?

Remember those melatonin brownies I mentioned earlier in this article? Well, these melatonin laced snacks with brand names like Lazy Cakes are being sold in many drug stores, convenience stores, and even night clubs. Some brownies have as much as 8mg of melatonin, more than 2 ½ times the amount in a 3mg supplement.

The Food and Drug Administration warns this could be very dangerous in the hands of a child who, experts say, should never receive more than 0.3mg of melatonin in one day. And then there is the question of accidentally eating the brownie just as a snack before doing something dangerous like driving.
