Happy New Calendar Year!… My sistar says that and it tickles me…cause we all know the truth. I dont get that caught up in what is wrong with the world…as in the Calendar being some false thing. I run with it. A lot of this whole system is about intentions. Whatever we focus on the most gives it power…right? So when we say Happy New Year…and we claim that we are yet in fact in a new year…then the Universe says…let’s run with it. Its just energy to begin with and wth its just another day. BUT the really cool thing I like about the New Year Energy is it really has been created to be a time to start over. Dont you feel that? I do. And I really dont like to call them resolutions.. I like to call them Goals, Missions…etc. Its the beginning of a new calendar month and a new year…if nothing less, you have hung up an entire new calendar to start jotting down your plans. Can you dig it?
So the big question is what are we going to do with this next 12 months we have to work with? It dawned on me…that my passion is to help people achieve their goals. It makes me ecstatic. My biggest two topics are, as you may already know, health and wealth. If it aint making dollars, it aint making any type of sense. My focus this year it to help people get healthier and help people get their money right. That is it. Zig Ziglar said “You can have everything you want in life if you help enough people get what they want!” I dig that…and I know there are many people who need guidance. There are things I actually know…and then there are things that I have the priviledge to know where to find the information. So that is where I begin.
Where are you in your life right now? What direction are you going in? How are your finances? How is your credit score? How is your diet? What’s going on with your weight? Let’s work together. You can have it all. You just need to believe it…and ALIGN with those who are on the same path! I have NO TIME to be in the midst of folks who are not adding to my greater good. I want the folks in my inner circle to be goal oriented and moving forward in greatness. Let’s connect. Message me, so we can discuss what your goals are and how I can possibly help you. If I cant…then I can definitely steer you in the right direction. The best way to reach me is by email: firstname.lastname@example.org. The fastest way to reach me is texting me: 404-850-1881.
Hope to hear from you soon! This is not difficult! HIT the EASY BUTTON!
Plan! Focus! Achieve! You can create the magical life you desire! Whatever it is. So you know here is a listing of some of the things I am working on this year (and beyond):

Eating your vegetables takes on a whole new meaning when you begin juicing. The brilliant colors alone are fascinating to watch as they come through the spout of your juicer.
Here are some health benefits that have been attributed to vegetables you are probably familiar with. These all make for great juice ingredients—how many have you juiced lately?
Note: the following list is certainly not neither exhaustive, and it is not claiming to provide medical advice. The intent is to illustrate the wide spectrum of beneficial nutrients believed to be available in vegetables and vegetable juices.
* Arugula – considered one of the most anti-cancer foods
* Asparagus – a super food, good diuretic, helps regulate blood sugar levels, has folic acid
* Beets, also called beetroot – helps to cleanse the blood and support the liver
* Bell peppers – chromium, lots of phytochemicals with good antioxidant value
* Broccoli – high in vitamin C, vitamin K, beta-carotene, promotes health vision
* Cabbage – red cabbage and green cabbage – coats and helps protect colon and digestive system
* Carrots – high amounts of vitamin A, chromium, carotene prevents free-radical damage to the body
* Celery – helps cleanse uric acid from digestive system, very alkalizing
* Chard (aka Swiss chard or silver beet) – vitamin A, potassium, manganese
* Collard greens – calcium protect against colon diseases
* Cucumbers – natural diuretic, good source of silicon, which is good for skin and hair
* Parsnips – chromium, which regulates metabolism
* Parsley – with high levels of chlorophyll, fights parasites and cleanses the liver
* Sweet potatoes – vitamin A source, beta-carotene, help with arthritis and other types of inflammation
* Tomatoes – lycopene, which provides the red color, is a strong antioxidant
* Turnip greens – vitamin K, calcium, zinc which is associated with lower body fat levels
* Turnip – traditionally used as a remedy to strengthen lung tissue
All rich green vegetables contain some chlorophyll. (Do you remember that term from high school Biology??). This can help clean our elimination systems, which can then clean our blood and lymph systems.
Chlorophyll can have other positive effects on our bodies as it helps to improve our circulation, relieve inflammatory pain, destroy bacteria and purify our livers.
Because chlorophyll, via green juices, is such a powerful benefactor to our bodies, you should strive to get some green juicing in on a regular basis. Starting out with greens combined with other juices (fruits, milder vegetables) may make it more palatable for you if you are a beginning juicer.
The nice thing about juicing is that by combining fruits and vegetables that contain specific nutrients, you can target certain concerns, like belly fat, urinary tract infections, or high blood pressure. For Real!
HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT: Check out this video by Loren Lockman of the Tanglewood Institute….I like the way he talks about what the optimal diet is and how the body actually heals itself. This is short…only about 8 mins. Let me know what you think the optimal diet is.
1. Clarity with thinking
2. Waste/Weight Lost
3. Energy goes way up
4. Positive demeanor
5. Less Sleep, More Rest
6. Satiation, no hunger
7. 6 Senses reactivated
8. Glowing Skin/Healthier Looking
9. Appetite suppressant
10. Immune Boost
I just made the bomb green smoothie this morning. It had kale, bananas, blueberries, ginger, coconut water and mango juice in it. Ashe! I remember when breakfast was a big production…a big unhealthy production. I cant do it anymore. Pancakes, potatoes…and for those that eat it…eggs, bacon…etc. Not part of my reality anymore. I look at that type of meal and a super acidic cocktail. If I were to make a big breakfast, I would make a huge fruit salad, oatmeal, smoothies, granola. That type of thing is such a higher vibration…but you know it takes a while to get to that. I think once you start to understand the whole acid alkaline connection you start looking at food and eating differently. I will help with that.
So as I consider guiding folks in my new Wellness Revolutionaries support network, I have come to the realization that folks have different things that they want to do with their health. And it depends on what your goal is as to what direction you are going to go in the Revolution. I have created this chart to help you know what to eat according to where you are in the “Movement”. I always recommend folks to start with a Detox. It is just so important to get the Yuck out of your system when you are transitioning from the Standard American Diet to a true healthy regimen. Now depending on how hard core you want to go you can do either a Juice Cleanse, a Coconut Water Feast, or a Water Fast. They are all beneficial. And naturally the Juice Cleanse is going to be less invasive while the Water Fast will be a lot more in depth. But it must be something you can commit to for a period of time without jumping off. Usually when you start to eat something you have ended the progress and you would normally have to start over. We will get into this more later.

Also, a Detox is not something you want to do long term, especially unsupervised. Many people have done 60 – 90 day Juice Cleanses, but I don’t think it is absolutely necessary not to mention that it is extremely difficult and very expensive too. Many people feel like they can lose weight on a Detox and they can. However I don’t believe that it is advisable to use a Detox for weight loss. Its actually kinda of stressful. You go in it for the wrong reasons. Detox should be something that you want to do to heal your body of slug, yuck, addictions, poor eating and the like. I consider a Detox an oil change. You should do it a few times a year.
If you are interested in losing weight I suggest that you follow a raw diet which will also include juicing, smoothies, and lots and lots of salads. You need to love salads here. This is the turkey on the table. The main event! And of course with your raw food eating…you need to work out more. You have got to find something you like in regards to moving your body and make a commitment in incorporating it into your lifestyle.
Once you get to where you want to be. You can start introducing some cooked foods into your life while maintaining a high raw approach. You would still be consuming your juices and smoothies for breakfast, salads for lunch, and then for dinner a whole food meal, which can be something like stir fry veggies, with beans and quinoa. And that is just an example. You can actually make so many different dishes which we plan to explore as well.
So, now get ready to make some changes. Study the chart and figure out where you are. Are you ready to Detox? Have you done so already and need to just lose weight? Or are you pretty much there and you just want to maintain your already healthy lifestyle? Let me know. I would love to hear where you are and what your goals are.
You gotta get moving! I know more than anyone exactly how I feel when I don’t move my body on a regular basis. I start to feel like Jabba the Hut. Honestly, I am one of those weird lazy types that actually likes to workout. Kinda doesn’t make any sense. I know. There is more of that coming soon…weird stuff. Any who, working out is essential…repeat…ESSENTIAL…to being a healthy, wholesome individual. And it’s not really the working out part that is essential…it’s the moving your body part that is essential. The saying Use it or Lose it applies here. The oldest and healthiest people in the world move their bodies…way into the 100s. So we really need to create a routine of moving our bodies. Most folks work in sedentary jobs. Then we get home and sit on our Arse and get engrossed in TV and Internet land. Time to MOTIVATE and MOVE IT! What are your favorite ways to move your body?
I know that time is usually a huge issue for most folks…I recommend doing an online MOVING program. It’s the easiest way to get it in right in the comfort of your own home. Here are two I think are really awesome:
The Benefits Of MOVING: 10 Reasons Why You Should Make MOVING Your ***New You Revolution!***
We all know about certain benefits of MOVING – above all, that it’s good for us. But this isn’t always enough to get us motivated into actually doing it. If you’re looking for a little inspiration to get started on your new you revolution then here are 10 reasons why MOVING can improve your life.
1) More Energy: Although MOVING in itself may be tiring, one of the major benefits of MOVING is the fact that it’ll ultimately leave you feeling more energized. Studies have shown that regular MOVING helps to reduce fatigue.
2) Increase Your Mood: Every time you MOVE your body will release endorphins that help to make you feel good. MOVING really will give you a natural high!
3) Improve Your Health: There are so many health benefits of losing weight that it’s impossible to list them all here! By getting MOVING you’ll reduce the risk of diabetes, cancer, high blood pressure, stroke, heart disease and much more.
4) Improve Your Appearance: If being overweight or not being toned leaves you feeling unhappy about yourself then losing weight can help you to look and feel better.
5) Play With Your Kids: It takes a lot of energy to keep up with your kids. By losing weight and getting MOVING, you’ll be able to run around with them without constantly getting out of breath. This can be one of the most rewarding benefits of MOVING: it helps you to enjoy life more.
6) Sleep Better: When you MOVE more you’ll start to find it easier to get a good night’s rest. This adds to the energy boost that you’ll get from MOVING in the long term.
7) Increase Your Strength and Stamina: Do you find it hard to go on long walks, even though you want to? Or maybe even carrying shopping bags up the stairs is a struggle? MOVE more and you’ll eventually be able to handle these activities with ease.
8) Reduce Stress: MOVING can hugely reduce stress levels. If you regularly suffer from stress – or even mental heath issues such as depression and anxiety – regular MOVING can help to reduce your symptoms.
9) A Sense Of Achievement: When you start to MOVE and see the improvements you’re making week on week, you’ll really get the feeling that you’ve achieved something worthwhile!
10) Keep Your Independence Later In Life: The more you can MOVING now, while you’re still able, the more you can reduce the impact of certain health problems later in life. In short, keeping fit and healthy will help you to keep your independence as late into life as possible.
So how much will you need to work out to feel these benefits of MOVING? That all depends on your current MOVING levels. The good news is that just 30 minutes of MOVING a day is enough to improve your health drastically. So what are you waiting for?!
Let me know how you make MOVING a priority…folks need some inspiration. What do you do?
Hola! How ya doing? So, if you haven’t read my article about the best supplement in the world, then I believe that is where you need to start. I was so excited about it when I discovered it that I didn’t really feel that I completed the story some days later when I reread it. I said to myself, Skai, folks are not going to know how to use this stuff…so here we go.
First of all, you can get Konjac root in the capsule form, but I do not recommend it all. Im just not into consuming by swallowing. I prefer to eat and chew everything. So, I would never really recommend anything in the pill form. Not to mention that Konjac has this unique way about it that I actually think is rather dangerous, so I don’t think that Konjac is very safe to swallow. You see, Konjac has one of the most superior viscosities on the planet. That means that when you had water to Konjac it just swells up to like 1000x the size that it started from.
On the lite scale, you can use it to create thicker sauces in your cooking…but naturally we are trying to use it for a weight loss supplement. So, that is why I recommend it in the powder form. There have been cases where people have choked from Konjac root because it gets lodged in the throat if it is not completely swallowed, which can cause chocking. So, let us stick with the powder form for now and have found that I actually prefer to eat it then to drink it.
I have been experimenting with Konjac root for a very short while now and I prefer to make it into a “pudding” or “applesauce” and then eat it like a breakfast with a spoon. You can actually just add water and let it gel up and then eat it…but life is meant to be enjoyed. So I started making mine with Apple Juice. Basically what I would do is get a glass jar with a lid on it. And old Salsa jar is perfect because it is short and stout enough to accommodate the amount of liquid you would need. Pour in about 10 oz of juice into the jar and add one heaping tablespoon in to the jar. Cover tightly and quickly shake the contents to death. The colder the juice, the less clumps you will have in your jar. Unlike corn starch that needs to be heated to thicken, Konjac thickens in cold water. However, it actually thickens faster in hot water…so using it cold will give you a minute or two more to gel. I usually let it sit for a few so it can do its thing and then I grab a spoon and eat it.
After a while the apple juice got boring, so I had to switch it up and bought some Simply Lemonade and mixed that in. I actually loved that and started using different juices to change the flavor. So I am assuming that you can use any flavor juice that you want to. Now, I read somewhere online that people are using Crystal Light to sweeten and flavor their Konjac pudding and I said to myself absolutely NO WAY! Crystal Light is like putting plutonium in your body…chemicalized and toxic. Don’t do it! Now, if you are interested in creating a pudding without any calories whatsoever, then I would recommend you get those flavored stevia drops that people use for coffee. They come in a slew of flavors.
Once you have made your “pudding”, you should be eating this first thing in the morning. This should be your breakfast. After you eat it, make sure you drink plenty of water afterwards. Almost immediately after you eat it, you will actually feel stuffed. It is as if it has expanded in your stomach and will definitely prevent you from overeating because you feel completely full. You can go without eating till afternoon where you should consume a nice big salad and smoothie…but you may not even be able to consume everything still. You can adjust your eating according to how you feel with your new Konjac pudding added into your diet. This is really good for folks who eat too much or even too many calories. When you are full, you now have to take heed to your body saying…Im good! Having a feeling of fullness without eating too many calories will give your body the opportunity to release the weight in a natural fashion. And it kinda “sykes” you out, because you don’t feel deprived at all. You wont be hungry.
You do have to eat, and hopefully with your Konjac pudding addition to your diet you can eat the right things now that you are in control. Remember you still have to eat. Konjac is not a food with nutrients enough in it to sustain you. Don’t go on a konjac binge because Skai said it will fill me up…no that is not going to work.
Konjac is an all natural, all vegetarian, plant based filler. I read somewhere that it is comparable to getting lap band surgery. Basically you fill your stomach up so that you can only get a smaller amount of food in it and what happens you eat less. That is the basically gist of it.
So what happens to Konjac in your stomach later? It digests in the system and you poop it out. Pretty simple. Konjac root has some nutrients which I mentioned in the first article about it. But remember is 100% soluble fiber. Your bowels are going to be so happy. You are going to fill a bowl up like never before and everything is going to be floating…as it should. Sorry for being graphic, but I know this is soo important.
Even Dr Oz has said how much he loves Konjac Root (glucomannan) and that he highly recommends it. So, now I recommend it and will continue to play with it to make things that are tasty. I was reading the back of my Sunwarrior Smoothie Powder and noticed that they have listed Konjac Root on the back as well. I think I am going to order some more and start using it as an additive for my puddings…especially since they have chocolate!
Yes, Im shocked too! Im not big into taking extra stuff. I believe we should just eat good old fresh, whole, organic food…pretty simple right? Well, that is until I found out about THIS!! Im so excited about it that I cant even breathe!! Well, not true! Its just that sometimes in life you just stumble upon something that is so magical.
Anywho, the product is simple Konjac Root. You may have seen it before as an ingredient in your Protein Smoothie powders and other Vegetarian things. Konjac glucomannan (KGM) is a water-soluble dietary fiber derived from the root of the Konjac plant. Konjac is highly nutritious, with over 45% of Glucomannan,9.7% of crude protein,16 different kinds of amino acids up to 7.8%, 7 essential amino acids up to 2.5%.It contains minerals such as calcium, phosphorus, iron ,zinc, manganese, chromium and copper and is low calorie, low fat and high in fiber.
Harvested Konjac Root
Its dietary fiber is easily absorbed; it is the best and the most secure form of soluble dietary fiber provided by nature to humans. The glucomannan in konjac cannot get hydrolyzed by the digestive enzymes in the digestive organs, therefore one cannot produce calories by consuming this food. Dietary fiber has irreplaceable physiological function in the human body, which prevents the body from harm of many diseases. Americans call it the, “life saving food for the westerners to diseases of civilization.” The Japanese call it “blood purification,” as well as “an intestinal scavenger.”
Konjac can stimulate absorption and digestion of protein and other nutritious substances, keeps the intestine clean, and assists in bowel movement. It can balance the diet, relieve fatigue, and it has the function of keeping one fit and preventing cancer. So, in recent years it has become quite popular around the world, and is labeled “magic food,” “amazing food,” “healthy food”etc.
Dietary fiber is composed of edible plant ingredients, carbohydrates and other similar substances, which can be absorbed and digested by the intestine. Dietary fiber is absorbed with the assistance of polysaccharides, oligosaccharides, lignin and other plant substances through a process that occurs during fermentation through the intestine. Dietary fiber is a necessary ingredient for one’s health.
Soluble dietary fiber (SDF) includes mainly pectin and hydrocolloid substances, as ell as hemicelluloses, gum, pectin, algin, bean gum, agar and CMC. Soluble dietary fiber is incredibly adhesive, thus it can form a protective screen in the surface of the intestine. As a result, it can bind together the molecules of cholesterol, which in turn allows konjac fiber to be the best soluble dietary fiber; due to its Glucomannan content. It cannot be digested in the stomach and it is quite healthy. It has comprehensive effects to the human body and can prevent many chronic diseases by regulating the metabolism. Lycerides prevent the absorption through the intestine, so konjac can aid in losing weight, lowering blood pressure, lipids, glucose and cholesterol.
Cholesterol is an important fat-like substance found in the human body, (it is a fat-like substance in the blood as well, bile also has cholesterol,) that can add more risks of getting coronary heart disease and stone disease. Dietary fiber in the human body can effectively adsorb cholesterol and bile acid, and can inhibit the absorption of cholesterol and bile acid through the intestine, stimulate bile excretion, reduce the amount of cholesterol and prevent coronary heart disease and stroke.
Konjac is an alkaline food.
Konjac is a beneficial alkaline food. It is particularly beneficial to those who eat many acidic foods of animals, if konjac is regularly consumed in their diets, acid-base balance can be achieved. Consequently, Konjac is beneficial to one’s health. Konjac food is not only delicious, tasteful, but also has the function of keeping one fit and preventing cancer.
1. Prevent cancer- Konjac can suspend the metabolism of cancer cells prevention. Susceptibility testing indicates it is sensitive to cardiovascular and the colon cancer cell. It can clean sputum, soften hard cells, break up bumps and detoxicate.It can cure mass, sputum nuclear, M.scrofulaceum and prevent cancer.
2. Lubricate intestine and reduce fat absorption. The fiber in konjac can stimulate the intestine and stomach, lubricate the intestine, prevent constipation, and reduce fat absorption. In addition, it is good for the treatment of bowel disease; it can reduce the accumulation of cholesterol, and is quite substantial in prevention of high blood pressure and coronary arteriosclerosis.
3. Weight loss. Konjac is a low-calorie food. The glucomannan in konjac can absorb water and enlarge up to 30-100xs than the original size. After eating, one may feel quite full. It can be used in curing diabetes, and is the ideal diet food.
4. Everyone can eat konjac, especially diabetic patients and those who face challenges with obesity.
Chronic functional (habitual) constipation is very common. A British investigation indicated that 10% of the population was plagued by this disease, the incidence increases with age, 3% in the young to 20% in the old; other developed countries had comparable figures as well. Patients with constipation get worse with age and consuming refined foods. Ambulatory patients that suffer from acute diseases (cerebral vascular accident, heart failure, pulmonary failure, and renal failure) have constipation. Maintaining good circulation in the intestine is the essential treatment to help those with acute diseases.
To prevent constipation, dietary fiber should be added in one’s diet. Coarse grains, vegetables, fruits and konjac flour product are rich sources of dietary fiber. The dietary fiber absorbs water, enlarges stool volume, improves intestinal flora (the bacteria in intestine ferment the dietary fiber to yield lower fatty acids), and stimulates peristalsis. These are all good for defecation.
For patients with constipation, there are currently five kinds of laxatives clinically available: lubrication, ease, salts, force and volume. These four types of laxatives need to be carefully used. However, fiber assists in enlarging the stool volume. This creates fiber that is of 0 caloric value, so one can control their weight without dieting, and have the ability to lose weight naturally.
Other forms of dietary fiber can slow down the absorption of nutrients. Unlike other forms of dietary fiber, Konjac dietary fiber, as a soluble form can outline a protective layer around the food to prevent digestive enzymes from interacting with food. Therefore, this stops the absorption of glucose and prevents nutrients from turning into calories. Konjac dietary fiber sweeps the waste of the intestine, reduces the amount and caloric food intake, and it can also take away the excess fat and energy. This concept can be verified by testing the fat content in the stool.
If an overweight patient chooses dietary fiber food, they can not only lose weight easily, but also blood sugar and lipids can be reduced, and the chance of getting atherosclerosis is decreased.
Coronary heart disease has already become one of the biggest killers of human beings. Lipid metabolism will undoubtedly speed up the process of atherosclerosis. A large number of epidemiological investigations and experimental researches confirmed that plasma cholesterol levels are highly related to atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease. An U.S survey shows that, over 50% of the elderly populations have higher blood cholesterol, which is a risk factor for coronary heart disease. In the study, if cholesterol levels were reduced by 1%, coronary heart disease risk was reduced by 2 %. The soluble dietary fiber in konjac can increase bile acid excretion and bile acid synthesis by interacting with bile acid. Accordingly, the study’s results indicated that cholesterol levels can be reduced, can decrease the cancer possibilities brought by acid metabolites, and can reduce the gallstone possibilities brought by accumulations of biliary excretion.
Glucomannan can effectively inhibit the absorption of cholesterol and bile acid through lipolysis through the intestine, promote fat excretion, reduce the amount of fat and cholesterol in the blood, and reduce the amount of cholesterol and triglyceride in serum. It can also prevent high blood pressure, high lipids, and other cardiovascular diseases.
The soluble dietary fiber in konjac can increase bile acid excretion and bile acid synthesis by interacting with bile acid, so that cholesterol levels can be reduced. The SDF in Konjac can reduce cancer possibilities by acid metabolites and reduce the gallstone formation due to the accumulations of biliary excretion. According to experiments studied, insoluble crude fiber has no effect of reducing lipids, only soluble fiber has the effect of reducing lipids. Konjac can notably reduce blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Once lipid reaches to the normal level it will not get lower. Thus, konjac can regulate lipid metabolism and prevent hyperlimpidemia.
Regulate immune system
Non-starch polysaccharides have the function of regulating the immune system and can strengthen one part or several parts in non-specific immune; cellular immune and humeral immune. Preliminary studies indicate that konjac flour has immunoregulatory activity.
Konjac has a rare kind of natural antibiotic. It can form antibacterial film at the surface of the food which is made from konjac flour, (the main material and other materials) so that it can prevent bacterial invasion, extend the storage time and play the role of antibiotics and preservation.
Preferred Calcium Supplement
As natural plant, 100 grams of konjac product contains 43 mg of calcium. The calcium in konjac food can be easily washed out; it washes especially when the wash out rate is much higher in acid solution. When konjac is consumed, the chewed konjac then interacts with the acid gastric juice, and calcium begins to dissolve, which in turn becomes absorbed by stomach and intestine, so that calcium can be supplemented.
Chinese konjac was exported to Japan 1000 years ago. In the beginning, it was a precious gift between monks in the form of medicine and cakes. When the Japanese administration of Kamakura came into office, it became the popular food. Konjac is quite popular in Japan; almost every family eats Konjac in every meal. Even today it is still the most favored food in Japan. The Ministry of Health in Japan implemented that konjac food should be used in the cafeteria for all schools. Right now, Japan is the biggest country in consuming konjac food. Konjac was listed as one of the top ten healthiest foods by World Health Organization. Source: konjacfoods.com
So what does that mean for you?
It means that everyone should be on this stuff.
You can make it two ways. One is you can mix it in cold water or cold juice, stir it or blend it up quickly and drink it fast. OR you can mix it with juice and let it sit and thicken and you can eat it like a pudding. I prefer to mix mine with cold apple juice and make it into an “Apple Sauce” like quality. Then during the day, plan on drinking lots of water. It actually fills you up and is a great way to lessen what you eat. Not to mention all of its other benefits too. Consuming one or two glasses as directed per day will make you eat about half of what you were eating before. And you know the game…the less calories you eat…the more weight you lose!! I heard about a lady who lost 90 pounds taking Konjac every day. That sounds like a healthy plan.
Most people prefer to take weight loss pills…but why take a chemical when you can just consume a 100% plant product with no added fillers and junk. I LOVE IT! So, get on this! I have some and I am soooo impressed! This is an amazing product for Diabetics and people who need to lose weight healthfully!
By the way, did you get a chance to pull up my latest eBook? Im so excited about this! Revolution in the Kitchen: Changing the way you eat…Now! This book took me two years to get together. I actually only needed about 10 days to write it…but it took me this long to organize it and get the right vibes to put it out here. BRAVO to me! YAHOO!
