Plexus Slim Pink Drink – What You Want to Know!

Why I Decided to Try Plexus Sliplexus slim pink drinkm

Plexus Ambassador Sara Neal talks about why she tried Plexus Slim Pink Drink

I am a 34 year old, married mother to two little boys and hope to have more babies in the future.  My body was starting to tell me otherwise with closer menstrual cycles, low energy, mood, terribly achy feet, loss of hair, and weight that just wouldn’t budge. 

I have two toddlers to run after which accounts for my energy levels, but the loss of time between menstrual cycles, loss of hair, and terribly achy feet pointed me to do lots of research.

After going through two Whole 30’s and eating Paleo for some time, I knew it had to be a bigger issue when my cycle wouldn’t regulate, my feet still ached, and the weight just wasn’t coming off.  What I came away with was inflammation and hormone imbalance.  I am a lover of whole foods, non GMO and organic whenever possible.  I do not drink soda, or a ton of caffeine, and eat a pretty balanced diet.  Plexus has the products that I, and so many others, have been waiting for.  They are filling the gaps.

What can Plexus Do For You?

Plexus is not a quick-fix. It will not make you drop weight overnight or pump you full of caffeine to give you a huge surge of energy and no appetite. What Plexus is is a company that promotes a healthy gut. The pleasant side effect is that you tend to lose weight after getting your gut healthy.

Gut health is everywhere in the news, and for good reason! They call the gut your “second brain” and most autoimmune disorders, allergies, skin conditions, and behavioral issues stem from too much bad bacteria in the gut and inflammation throughout the body. Research is coming out every day that points us back to the gut.

Plexus Slim Pink Drink

Originally created for diabetics, Slim, aka “the pink drink” stabilizes blood sugars, can regulate cholesterol, and plexus slim pink drinkbalance your blood pressure. It is all natural and has no artificial ingredients. Sweetened with stevia and Lo Han, I think it tastes like a fruit punch or cherry flavored beverage. It is colored by beet root extract and comes in a pouch to be mixed into 8oz of water and drank first thing in the morning, 30 minutes before breakfast. It stabilizes my blood sugar throughout the day, and I find that I do not have the 4pm tired and snacky feeling anymore.

Plexus Slim – BioCleanse

BioCleanse oxygenates the whole body, helps to cleanse the gastro-intestinal tract, energizes the body, supports collagen production, neutralizes acidic conditions, and helps to relieve constipation. Most people are deficient in magnesium, vitamin C, and bioflavonoids, and BioCleanse can aid in nutritional balance. As of October 29, 2015, BioCleanse will no longer use grapefruit in their BioCleanse but instead orange peel to better serve those who cannot have grapefruit due to certain medications. I find that BioCleanse keeps my intestinal tract moving and really works in harmony to help me sleep better due to the magnesium.

Plexus Slim – ProBio5

ProBio5 is Plexus’ probiotic with enzymes. This is, hands-down, the best probiotic I have ever taken. Plexus’ ProBio5 contains 5 beneficial strands of good bacteria, enzymes, intestinal flora, B6, and grape seed extract. ProBio5 contains Chitosanase and can actually break-through the wall (chitin) of candida to destroy it. Most people have candida overgrowth and don’t even know it. Do you suffer from bloating, gas, diarrhea, constipation, food reactions and allergies, environmental allergies, anxiety, reoccurring irritability, heartburn, indigestion, lethargy, acne, dry/flaky/itchy skin, nail fungus, jock itch, migraine headaches, reoccurring cystitis/vaginal infections, premenstrual tension, and menstrual problems? Do you see how this list goes on and on?

Plexus Slim – X Factor

To amplify your absorption of whole foods and any supplement you take, I have found the X Factor by Plexus to be stellar. They have a patented aloe blend to aid in absorption by 300-400% when taking their vitamin. I sure can tell a difference when taking it. My hair grows like crazy, as do my nails, my skin is fresh looking, and my energy is even higher. The X Factor vitamin also contains New Zealand Blackcurrant which is shown to contain a powerful amount of antioxidants and vitamins in and of itself.

Plexus Slim – Mega X

Finally I want to share with you the Mega X. Mega X combines the benefits of Omega 3, 6, 9, 5 and 7 all in one sustainable ALA, SDA-rich, heart and brain health softgel. This is plant-based coming from the AHIFLOWER oil. You will get the full benefits of all 3, 6, 9, 5 and 7 and no gross fish burps.

Plexus Slim Side Effects

When you take control over your own body some crazy things happen.  When taking Plexus Slim products you might plexus slim side effectshave some candida die-off, or go through a detox process.  These are normal and what some may call a “side-effect.”  You will probably have these Plexus Slim side effects when aggressively treating candida overgrowth.  It’s perfectly normal.  After awhile you will notice that inches are disappearing, and the number on the scale is coming down, you will see cheek bones and collar bones, and clothes will become looser.  For some it happens right away, for others it takes longer.  You might even notice other things first like, pain is no longer an issue, sleep comes easier to you, more energy during the day, cravings subside, clearer skin, stable mood and blood sugars, and so many more.  Plexus is working on your insides to then be able to show you results on the outside. 

The beauty of the Plexus products is that they are totally customizable.  Working with your Ambassador will guide you through these stages.  Everyone takes different Plexus products, at different times of the day, and at varying amounts.    I encourage all of my customers to write down goals, take pictures for body comparison of before and after, take measurements, and to frequently look at your goals, pictures, and measurements to see how far they’ve come.

I am now on the path to health.  My feet don’t ache like they used to, I am seeing a change in the scale and tape measurer, my energy is up, my cycle has regulated, and my hair is growing back.  I feel fantastic, and I want you to also!

plexus slim pink drinkAs an Ambassador for Plexus Worldwide,  I would love to be on your journey with you.  At the bottom of this article is my website and on my website is my phone number. My desire is to be an encouragement to you and walk you through this.  It’s not a quick fix, but it’s worth the journey to better health. I want you to experience what I have experienced.  We can talk through what is going on and customize a plan just for you.

Plexus offers a 60 day, money-back guarantee to their retail and preferred customers.  This is a company that 100% stands behind their products.  You honestly have nothing to lose, except maybe some inflammation, pain, inches, weight…  You get the idea.

Marz Sprays Review – Is it a Scam?

Marz Sprays Review

It seems that a product called Marz Spray  is the latest weight loss offer to spam my mailbox.  I have never been hit this hard!  Have you had any of these emails flood your inbox lately?  I have had all of these and more JUST TODAY!  Check out these crazy headlines:

A simple spray of this right into your mouth has the same effects as a 90-min cardio workout.

Spraying this mist into your mouth causes your body to quickly burn more fat then EVER before without even changing what you eat or the amount of cardio exercise you do.

Remove Excess Body Fat With Just One Spray Into Your Mouth

One Spray a Day Keeps the Fat Away!

ABC News Exclusive!

New Weightloss spray endorsed by Sharktank !

Just spray once a day into your mouth and experience sudden/ rapid fat-loss.

marz sprays

And of course, my very favorite:   **There is very limited inventory due to HIGH demand since being shown on ABC

So I am not saying at all that Marz Sprays is a scam.  But the people who are pushing it out there with those headlines, they are the scam.  Making false promises, no doubt trying to cash in on the New Year resolution crowd.

The only reason that I opened one of the emails to find out what it was is because of the Shark Tank reference.  It is one of my favorite shows and I figured there had to be something to this if they were involved.

And yes, Marz Sprays is a legitimate company that was featured on Shark Tank and got some of their financial backing.  They make various sprays such as vitamin boosters, sleep enhancers, energy boosters and the infamous weight loss spray.  It is simply a spray shot that gives you a high dose of B12 and other supplements known to enhance weight loss efforts.

What is in the Marz Weight Loss Spray?

According to their product information on their site, the Slim Spray contains popular ingredients such as Green Tea, Acai Berry, an assortment of vitamins including B12 and chromium picolinate.  It is also sugar and gluten free.  So this is actually a great supplement for a weight loss regime.  It’s too bad that the crazy internet marketers have got a hold of this and use their tactics to make a legitimate company look bad.

And I tell you, there is not a limited supply.  They sell Marz Spray  on Amazon so if you marz weight loss sprayreally did want to try it you could get one bottle to see if you like it or not.  The scammers that are emailing me are trying to get my credit card number of course so they can send me some kind of automatic shipment of this so called very limited product.  Ha, don’t fall for it!

And honestly, a weight loss spray?  I have been desperate at times, and frankly, I love to try new things in the hopes that one day I really will stumble across that diet miracle cure.  This is a supplement , not a miracle.

Honestly, you are much better off just exercising more and eating healthy.  I’m a huge fanmarz sprays of eating plans along the lines of Ketogenic, Paleo, and Mediterranean.   These eating plans focus on eating real and natural foods and moving more, just like our much thinner ancestors used to do.  Perhaps the Marz spray could be a good supplement, but that is not what those headlines are promising.

Don’t start your year off with this kind of false hope.  Just. Eat. Real. Food.

All the best to your optimum health in 2014!

Skinny Fiber Weight Loss

skinny fiber weight lossSkinny Fiber Weight Loss

What exactly is Skinny Fiber and how does it work?

Skinny Fiber is a diet supplement that I kept hearing about on all the social media.  Mostly I ignored the buzz because I am not really a ‘take pills’ kind of person and the idea of diet pills bothered me.  But I started seeing people who I knew and trusted getting results with it so it seemed like a good candidate for a review here on this site.

I do not sell Skinny Fiber diet pills, and make no money by telling you about it here on this page. 

Skinny Fiber is not a diet pill in the way I was thinking, like those ones that cause you to feel like you are all hepped up on something.  Basically Skinny fiber diet pills contain enzymes and fiber that help to make you feel full so that you eat less. Pretty simple concept.

Skinny Fiber pills contain the following enzymes: Protease, Amylase, Lipase, Papain, Glucomylase

Skinny Fiber pills also contain:

  • Glucomannan – the fiber that keeps you full
  • Caralluma extracts – all natural appetite suppressant
  • Cha De Bugre – natural metabolism booster

Pros and Cons of Skinny Fiber Pills

Pros

  • Ingredients are all natural
  • Plenty of online Support Groups
  • No diet to go on or weighing and measuring of food

Cons

  • Some people report feeling too full

Since I have not tried this myself, I solicited the following testimonial from Amanda Hardester, who has so far lost 40 lbs using Skinny Fiber Diet Pills. Amanda has a support group on Facebook that you can join here.  I was especially struck by the change in her complexion in the after picture below, she is glowing!

Amanda’s story

I started my journey in February, and have had many ups and downs. I have lost weight, gained it back, and lost again. I started drinking soda, and eating stupid after I had worked so hard. “OK…Dust your butt off Amanda..Get back at it..”
Skinny Fiber is not a magical, cure-all, diet supplement.  If you expect to take it for a week, and lose tons of weight overnight; than it is not for you.
If you are ready to commit to making a healthier lifestyle change, than I believe with all of my heart that it can help you. It is discouraging to diet and exercise for years; only to see the same weight that depresses you as you look in the mirror every day. Taking the plunge to try Skinny Fiber, filtering through the good and bad reviews, researching the product, and starting this journey was one of the toughest, and best things that I have ever done. Skinny Fiber did not do this FOR me! I put the effort forth to better myself, and SKINNY FIBER HELPS! It is all-natural. No artificial ingredients or stimulants! Skinny Fiber is plant-based, with no additives! It gently boosts your metabolism, and targets hard to lose fat areas.
Before my weight loss journey began, I experienced several health issues. Fibromyalgia, chronic migraines, and a major surgery to remove a tumor in my right ovary among other issues. Recovering from that surgery was a turning point for me. I hit an all time peak on the scale, had no energy, and averaged regular ER trips for the migraines most of my adult life.
Since losing weight, 40lbs since February, I am no longer taking Topamax for my migraines, (Have had 2 migraines since Feb) have way more energy, have clearer skin, and am coping better with my Fibromyalgia. (Definitely more good fibro days than bad ones for me.) I am down from a 22/24 to an 18/20. Obesity can be at the root of many health issues; and now that the weight is coming off a little bit at a time, I feel like I am taking my LIFE back! Every one has different results with Skinny Fiber, so my testimony may not be the same as yours; but when you commit to change—Nothing is unattainable if you give it time!

Green Coffee Bean Extract

Green Coffee Bean Extract

Green Coffee Bean Extract

Green Coffee beans are flying off the shelves both literally and in a cyber sense.  It seems that anything mentioned on the Dr. Oz show gets this kind of fame. (Remember Oprah and her book recommendations?)

Green coffee beans are coffee beans that have not been roasted.  These beans contain chlorogenic acid which apparently slows the release of glucose into the system.  A study that was published in the journal Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity claims that over 22 weeks participants lost more than 17 pounds without changing their diet and fitness routine.

Pros and Cons of Green Coffee Bean Extract

Pros

Weight loss supplement that appears to have some merit

You can get the Dr. Oz recommended variety from Amazon instead of ‘out there’.

Cons

Many scammers and hucksters out there charging double or more than they should

Reports of headaches and cramps but unclear if this is the fillers in the cheaper products

I am personally not crazy about the idea of weight loss supplements (but that is just my own opinion)

So for what it’s worth, Dr. Oz says to make sure your green bean coffee extract has the following:

  • Contains Svetol
  • No fillers and all natural ingredients
  • 50% chlorogenic acids
  • reputable seller with customer service (Amazon or other large company)

I have provided the link to one that meets this criteria. (NOTE) – Yes, there are cheaper bottles on Amazon than this one, but they will be missing one or more of the key ingredients listed above!

The Fast Metabolism Diet

Fast Metabolism DietThe Fast Metabolism Diet

This is a best selling diet book authored by Haylie Pomroy and featured on Dr. Oz, complete with an A list  celebrity clientele.  (I think I should create a category for this site for those diets featured by Dr. Oz!)

There is a caloric cycling element to this diet (although no calories are counted), so it’s more like a nutrient cycling.

Phase 1 : Two days of mostly fruits and carbs in the way of whole grains (think quinoa and brown rice)

Phase 2:  Two days of mostly dark green veggies and lean proteins such as fish and poultry

Phase 3: Three days of all of the above with the addition of good fats such as avocado, nuts, coconut oil and olive oil

Ms. Pomroy has an impressive list of credentials and described as a ‘Celebrity Nutritionist’.  There are extensive online resources such as Pinterest recipe boards, facebook groups and blogs.  She also sells a shake mix on her website that supports the Fast Metabolism Diet. I checked the ingredients and they look really good, especially compared to other shake mixes.  Definitely worth a look and the cost works out to less than $2 per serving.

Pros and Cons of the Fast Metabolism Diet

Pros

Use of real  whole and healthy foods, lots of it

Plenty of online resources to help you, as well as a smart phone app

No counting calories

Cons

I am always hesitant about a diet guru promoting shakes and supplements

Counting calories or not, on the Phase 1 and Phase 2 days, the calories are very, very  low.

I find the phases and cycles a bit confusing

 

But certainly I feel this one is worth a try and I would love to hear from people who have done it.  How did you find the switching from phase to phase?

PS The Fast Metabolism Diet cookbook is available by preorder.

Garcinia Cambogia

garcinia cambogiaGarcinia Cambogia

When Dr. Oz speaks, America not only listens, sometimes they go a little crazy.  That is certainly true for a weight loss supplement called Garcinia Cambogia.

So what is it?  It is a fruit that looks like a small pumpkin that is native to India and parts of Asia.  The word from Dr. Oz is that as a supplement, taking it alone will cause you to drop some pounds with no other changes.  But combine it with diet and exercise and you can almost triple the results from that effort!

I have ordered some from Amazon and will test it myself and report back.  In the meantime, here is the clip from Dr. Oz’s show.

Pros and Cons of Garcinia Cambogia

Pros

All natural fruit extract

Cheap (as long as you don’t get sucked in by the marketing!)

Triples your weight loss efforts

Cons

Many scammers out there selling crap

Not supported by the medical community (except Dr. Oz!)

May react with your medications, so check with your pharmacist or doctor


NOTE – Be sure to only buy Pure Carginia Cambogia extract from a reputable company (Amazon, your pharmacy)
