Everything You Wanted To Know About Skinny Fiber!


Skinny Fiber is unlike any weight loss supplement out there because not only is it all-natural and stimulant free, you will you lose weight and reap the benefits of becoming healthier!! Say goodbye to Type 2 Diabetes, Acid Reflux, PCOS symptoms, IBS….the list goes on and on….!!

What is Skinny Fiber?

Skinny Fiber is a pure, all natural nutritional weight loss supplement that comes in the form of a capsule. It is a super detox on a cellular level! It has no nasty side effects, unlike other dietary supplements that make your heart pound and make you feel jittery. Skinny Fiber is STIMULANT FREE.

What is in Skinny Fiber?

It contains 3 main plant ingredients:

Glucomannan- a unique all natural soluble dietary fiber that expands 50 times its size in your stomach helping you overcome the #1 enemy of weight management ... overeating. In addition to the amazing support for your weight loss goals, on its way through the body, glucomannan supports the colon, thereby supporting the digestive system.*

Caralluma- a plant, in the cactus family, that has been used as a natural appetite suppressant and thirst quencher in India for centuries, particularly in times of famine.* Caralluma fimbriata is also believed to help support weight management.* It is believed to block certain enzymes that form fat in the body.
Chá de Bugre- a small tree found in Brazil- very successful in suppressing the appetite and believed to fight cellulite. Can be roasted and made into a coffee substitute and is a good heart tonic that stimulates circulation. It’s also used in Brazil and Haiti as a tea to help relieve cough, regulate renal function, reduce uric acid, and externally to heal wounds.

As well as 7 digestive enzymes and antioxidants:

Beyond supporting digestion, certain Digestive Enzymes can play a major role in weight management.*Enzymes are responsible for every single chemical reaction in every single cell of your body. The enzymes found naturally in raw foods are very sensitive to heat (cooking) and most processed foods are completely void of the enzymes your body desperately needs to properly digest your meal. If you cannot get enough nutrition from the food you take in, your body just wants more.

Amylase- an enzyme that helps digest carbohydrates. Breaks down starch and turns them into a natural sugar which gives the body energy. Also found in the pancreas and the glands that make saliva.

Protease- a digestive enzyme needed to digest protein. It liberates amino acids needed by the body. Used as therapy for benefits in oncology, inflammatory conditions, blood rheology control, and immune regulation.

Lipase- a digestive enzyme needed to digest a healthy amount of fat our bodies need. It hydrolyzes lipids, the ester bonds in triglycerides, to form fatty acids and glycerol. Dissolves fat throughout the body, improves metabolism, and aids in overall detoxification process.

Glucoamylase- also turns starch into sugar for easy digestion

Papain- a protease enzyme found in the papaya plant and is used to treat gastrointestinal problems such as stomach ulcers and indigestion. Breaks down heavy proteins to make them easy to digest and absorb into the body and works well against Celiac disease, shingles, and herpes. It also shortens the healing time of some injuries and surgery.

Cellulase- sustains blood sugar, maintains good level of cholesterol, supports cell membranes to keep them healthy from free radicals, toxic chemicals, and breaks down biofilm to help detoxify the intestinal tract as well as major organs.

Bromelain- enzymes found in pineapples, used for digestive support. It treats inflammation following surgery primarily of the ear, nose, and throat as well as other infections and injuries. Aids heartburn when used with amylase and lipase and reduces diarrhea.

BUT WAIT………..Skinny Fiber isn’t just a weight loss product!!

The ingredients in Skinny Fiber:
block 20-30% of all calories eaten from being absorbed by the body
help your body absorb vitamins and minerals
suppresses appetite and help you eat less while still feeling satisfied - it expands 50 TIMES its size in your belly when you drink your water!
block the absorption of fat from the foods you eat
burn fat and boost metabolism naturally - NO JITTERY FEELING...EVER!
flush fat from the colon wall
remove parasites from the intestines (this is often times a cause of weight gain that people never think about!)

In addition, people are experiencing other wonderful side effects including:
decreased cellulite
clearer skin
reduced cholesterol - people are coming off of cholesterol medication!
lower blood pressure - no more blood pressure pills for several customers!
stabilized blood sugar - people who were diabetic no longer need any medication!
decreased or stopped symptoms of IBS (irritable bowel syndrome)
decreased or stopped symptoms of PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome)
regulating the thyroid- people are coming off thyroid medication!
reduced hot flashes
reduced and sometimes eliminated migraines
better sleep at night
reduced or eliminated cravings of carbs, chocolate and salty foods
increased energy

We have many reports of it also helping with: GERD, acid reflux, bowel inflammation, joint inflammation, joint pain, joint dysfunction, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, arthritis, erectile dysfunction, infertility, renal dysfunction, compromised liver function, edema, gout and a host of other health issues. Skinny Fiber will enhance the inside.

FAQ: When is the best time to take Skinny Fiber?

You can take Skinny Fiber in different doses at the times of the day that suit you best. It is recommended that you take 2 Skinny Fiber capsules, twice daily, 30 minutes before your 2 largest meals of the day – typically lunch and evening meal. However, we are all different and some people will find that a larger dose of 2 capsules 3 times a day or 3 capsules twice a day will make a huge difference to their results. Here are some suggested routines:

4 capsules a day:

2 x capsules before lunch and 2 x capsules before dinner

6 capsules a day:

3 x capsules first thing in the morning and 3 x capsules early evening or

2 x capsules before breakfast, 2 x capsules before lunch and 2 x capsules before dinner

You can alter the times that you take Skinny Fiber to suit you. For example, if you are very hungry mid-morning and mid-afternoon then take yours then. If you are a late night snacker, take your dose mid-evening to curb those cravings. The important thing is to be consistent and make sure you take them regularly every day.

How should I take Skinny Fiber?

With plenty of water! This is a fiber product so you may experience bloating if you are not drinking enough water with it. Ensure your water intake is at least 2 liters a day or even more if you can manage it. I can't stress how effective this is as many of us don't get our required intake of water even without taking the extra fiber. Many people find taking the capsules with lukewarm water and lemon first thing in the morning also boosts their results (please make sure the water is lukewarm and not hot so that the capsules don’t dissolve in your mouth).

Does everyone experience a detox effect?

Depending on your current state of health and the number of capsules you take, you may experience different levels of detox when you first start taking Skinny Fiber. Some people need to go through this detox stage before they start to see the weight coming off. Skinny Fiber works hard to improve your health from the inside out. Just keep up the high water intake you will soon start seeing the benefits.

How long does it take Skinny Fiber to work?

Skinny Fiber is not a quick fix weight loss product and it can take several weeks to start seeing results for some people. This is perfectly normal and varies from person to person depending on your state of health before you started taking Skinny Fiber. If you have digestion problems or other underlying health issues, it will take a while to restore your body’s balance. Fat can be stored as a way of protecting the body and once your overall health improves, the weight loss will follow. Yet we have seen quite a few people who start seeing the inches coming off in a matter of days....every "body" is different.

Do I have to diet and/or exercise to get results from Skinny Fiber? The answer to this question again will depend on your body. We have many customers who have not changed their diets and have never exercised 1 day while on it and are getting amazing results. Unfortunately, this is not the case with everyone! Just for the purpose of becoming healthy, if you need to lose weight and/or have health issues, you should begin to make healthy lifestyle changes by watching what and how much you eat as well as trying to move your body everyday.

I still feel hungry even when I take Skinny Fiber as directed, what should I do?

This may be happening for a couple of reasons. Firstly, you may be dehydrated. Dehydration can cause us to feel a false hunger and since you are taking a fiber supplement it is even more important to ensure you have plenty of water / fluids. Drinking plenty of water will ensure that the Glucomannan expands to full capacity in your stomach.

Another reason is that your digestive health may not be good when you first start taking Skinny Fiber. Be patient and be consistent, every day this supplement is having a positive effect on your health and once more healing has taken place, your appetite should reduce and you should start to see your weight dropping.

Does Skinny Fiber give you the jitters?

Skinny Fiber contains all natural, pure ingredients that work to restore your body’s digestive health, reduce your appetite and gently increase your metabolism to promote natural weight loss over time. Skinny Fiber does not contain caffeine or any other ingredients that are known to give users the ‘jitters’.

Can I take Skinny Fiber while I am Pregnant or Breast Feeding?

Since no formal clinical trials have been conducted, it is advised that you stop taking Skinny Fiber once you discover you are pregnant and whilst breast feeding. Your Skinny Fiber intake can be resumed afterwards as a great supplement to help get your post baby body back in shape. Consult your Dr. if breast feeding we have many that have been cleared to use Skinny Fiber while still breastfeeding and is usually safe for mom and baby.

I am going through menopause, can I take Skinny Fiber?

Oh yeah and you will thank your lucky stars you found Skinny Fiber if you experience hot flashes. Many of our customers report either less hot flashes or none at all!! Wouldn't that be wonderful!?

Is Skinny Fiber gluten free?

Yes, this all natural product is gluten free.

Does Skinny Fiber have other health benefits?
Sooooo many………….*We have received many testimonials from customers who say that Skinny Fiber has helped a whole host of other health issues such as IBS, cholesterol, blood sugar, insulin levels, fibromyalgia, acid re-flux, ED, low energy, PCOS, arthritis, constipation, low thyroid, Lupus, energy, menopause, migraines, fertility issues due to Polycystic Ovarian Disease just to name a few. It appears to have a very effective regulating effect on the body including blood sugar and hormones.

Does Skinny Fiber have any side effects?

To date we have not discovered any reports of negative side effects due to the use of Skinny Fiber. Some individuals may notice increased bowel movements, bloating and gas at first due to the increase in fiber and detoxifying effect on the body depending on the state of their digestive health when they start taking the supplement. If this happens, we suggest increasing your water intake. These effects are usually short lived once the body gets used to the increased fiber and your digestive health starts to improve.

Do I need to follow a particular diet or eating plan while taking Skinny Fiber?

It is not essential to follow a particular plan but you do need to listen to your body. Many of us eat large portion sizes out of habit and continue eating past being full. If you aim to reduce your portion sizes and choose more natural unprocessed foods then this will of course increase the benefits and results you get from Skinny Fiber.

If you prefer the structure of following a certain diet then Skinny Fiber may compliment it well and boost your results even further. Its unique blend of ingredients may help you stick to a certain eating plan through feeling satisfied with smaller portions and reducing cravings.

What will not work is if you take Skinny Fiber and continue to overeat to excess regardless of how full you are feeling – continuing to binge on unhealthy processed foods and sugary foods and beverages expecting Skinny Fiber to be a miracle cure isn’t going to get you results you want as the supplement will be fighting a losing battle with your continued unhealthy eating habits.

After I am done taking Skinny Fiber, will I gain my weight back?
NO. Although, many people stay on Skinny Fiber after they have met their weight loss goals due to the health benefits they personally experienced while taking SF. The longer you have been on SF the better. Why? Because SF detoxed your body, cleaned out the toxins and rebalance your hormones creating a body that was “ready” to lose weight. However, with skinny fiber or any weight loss regiment- if you go back to eating junk and drinking calories you WILL gain back weight. You cannot go back to bad eating and drinking habits and think that the weight is going to stay off. After being on Skinny Fiber for awhile, it should have retrained your brain to become intune to your body’s needs- into only needing smaller portions at meal times, and eating more throughout the day in order to keep your metabolism going and your blood sugars level.

SO if you continue to maintain the good eating habits you learned while on SF then you will be fine. Also to remember to keep moving- Go for a walk, ride a bike, Swim, dance or chase the kiddies or animals around the park.
Each month supply is $59.99 but you can get the 2 and get a free one for $119.99 or the best one is the 3 get 3 free for $179.99 (shipping is like $6). Cheaper to go in with a friend and get the free ones. you can order here!

Break The Sugar Cycle!!


A trendy sugar detox is a three-week diet said to rid you of your craving for sweets. The goal: to lose weight at last. But can eating masses of veggies really get the sugar monkey off your back for good? Here's the truth about sugar cravings and how to tame a wild sweet tooth.

Can You Really Be Hooked on Sugar?

You say you can't live without your daily donut. But are you really "addicted" to sugar? The answer is complex. A pattern of avoiding and binging -- not sugar itself -- may lead to addict-like effects. Sugar even affects the same "feel-good" brain hormones as street drugs. Nobody would say sugar is the same as heroin, but it can still mess with your brain and body.

Sugar-Addict Symptoms

You may have an eating disorder or a plain bad habit. Anyone can use sugary foods in ways that aren't healthy. Some signs: You may lose control and eat more than you planned. You may feel bad when you skip your daily cookie "fix." These low blood sugar symptoms include feeling a little nervous, shaky, or even having a cold sweat.

Your Brain on Sugar

Sugar fuels every cell in the brain. When you overload on sugary foods, it may alter the parts of the brain that control how much you eat. In lab studies, rats that binged on sugar had brain changes like those of getting off drugs. In humans, just seeing pictures of milkshakes triggered brain effects like those seen in drug addicts. It was strongest in women whose answers showed they were more hooked on eating.

Quick Sugar Highs...

Why do you get a rush when you eat a midday candy bar? The sugar in it -- called a simple carbohydrate -- is quickly turned into glucose in your bloodstream. Your blood sugar levels spike. Simple carbs are also found in fruits, veggies, and dairy products. But these have fiber and protein that slow the process. Syrup, soda, candy, and table sugar don't.

…And Sugar Lows

Your body needs to move glucose out of the bloodstream and into your cells for energy. To do this, your pancreas makes insulin, a hormone. As a result, your blood sugar level may have a sudden drop. Low blood sugar leaves you feeling shaky, dizzy, and searching for more sweets to regain that sugar "high." So that midday candy bar has set you up for more bad eating.

Starch Can Equal Sugar

Think you don't have a sweet tooth, but crave bagels, chips, or French fries? These starchy foods are complex carbs that the body breaks down into simple sugars. Eaten without better foods, starches can make blood sugar surge and crash like sugar. White rice, white flour, and potatoes do this. Highly refined starches like white bread, pretzels, crackers, and pasta are worst.

Do Sugar Detox Diets Work? Let Skinny Fiber help you!

Get Rid Of The "Tude"!


How many of us expect our children to not have the "tude" and are unable to shake it off ourselves??

 We really need to have a think about this!!! If we have high expectations and high standards of our children, we need to model them. It's the only way they will learn empathy and compassion.

Warm Lemon Water......


3 Reasons Why You Should Start Your Day with Warm Water and Lemon

From promoting weight loss to improving your PH balance, there are many benefits to this morning ritual.

How you start your day is extremely important. We all have our own ritual we do when we get up. Some of us need coffee first thing in the morning, some of us need breakfast first, and some cannot fathom putting anything into our systems.
Whatever your ritual is, it is vital for setting the tone and mood to your day. We all know the saying “Waking up on the wrong side of bed”; these words hold truth for those of us that wake up feeling not so great in the morning after a particularly rough night.
In Eastern traditions like Ayurveda, they explain how the choices you make regarding your daily routine either helps in decreasing disease or helps enable it. They believe that drinking warm water with lemon is a great way to help kick start your metabolism. After a few days of trying it, I began to notice a big difference in my mood and in my food choices. Here are a few benefits you can begin to get from adding a simple cup of warm water with lemon to your daily ritual.

A Weight loss Aid:

Pectin Fiber in lemons helps to fight hunger cravings. Some studies have shown that people who have an alkaline balanced diet lose weight quicker. I notice a huge difference in my appetite when I forget to drink my warm water. I feel that it keeps me feeling more energetic and satisfied with my food choices.
Helps with Digestion: Stimulation of the gastrointestinal tract and peristalsis is activated by warm water. Lemons and limes are very laden in vitamins and minerals so it helps move toxins out. Basically, it helps things move around quicker
.
Helps Balance PH in Your Body:

All metabolic processes, including immunity, depend on a delicately balanced pH, which harmonizes electromagnetic energies. The body constantly fights to maintain a blood pH at around 7.35 -7.45 much like our internal thermostat that tries to maintain a 98.6-degree body temperature. Alkaline in the Body is very important for your health. Lemons are acidic but upon entered the body they become “alkaline” that means that the citric acid does not create acidity in the body once metabolized.
Lemon Water on the “Go”: If you are on the go, make your warm water with lemon the night before and put it in a thermos.

Preparation:

Warm purified fluoride free water or spring water should be used. Use a whole lemon or lime squeezed into a half glass of the warm water. Try not to add any sweetener to get the maximum results. This should be done first thing in the morning on an empty stomach, some recommend waiting about an hour to eat breakfast.
It is never wise to skip breakfast, always begin your day with something soothing to your system. Beginning your day with a nice warm cup of water with lemon will begin to regulate your system and perhaps be just the medicine you need to add to your morning ritual.

Overnight Oats


Here's a recipe for a quick, healthy and super satisfying breakfast (Not to mention, it tastes so good!)

Overnight Oats

* 1/2 cup Rolled or Quick Oats
* 2/3 cup Coconut Milk (can use Almond, Soy, etc)
* 1/2 cup plain (or Vanilla) Greek yogurt

The night before you plan on eating, mix ingredients together and put in a mason jar or airtight container and stick in the fridge. The next morning, remove from fridge and eat! I add flax seeds, fresh bananas, peaches and whatever berries I have on hand. Get creative and go for it- add some raw honey, coconut flakes, raw cacao nibs, coconut peanut butter, chia seeds, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, cocoa, Nutella, etc...Then enjoy!!

This Is Tina........


Check out Tina's results with skinny fiber Way to go girl

This is my newest update with my progress on Skinny Fiber. As of yesterday I am down 19 pounds and 15 inches. I have lost more inches than that but I only have been measuring my arms, thighs, waist, hips and chest.
 I have 12 pounds left until I hit my goal weight.
 Skinny Fiber is a an all natural nutritional weight loss supplement with 3 plant ingredients and a digestive enzyme blend with no stimulants to make you jittery! You take 2 Skinny Fiber capsules with a full glass of water 30-60 minutes prior to your 2 largest meals. Skinny Fiber Pills works to assist in weight loss in 3 different ways. The first way is to suppress your appetite. The pills expand to 50 times their original size which allows your stomach to feel full so you eat less. The second way is it actually blocks fat absorption. It keeps new fat from forming so your body can burn the existing fat. The final way Skinny Fiber Pills work is by stimulating your metabolism. This helps you burn calories much faster and more efficiently. Because of its ingredients, it also helps cleanse your body of its toxins, flattens your stomach, and helps to eliminate cravings.

THINGS YOUR MOTHER SHOULD HAVE TOLD YOU


THINGS YOUR MOTHER SHOULD HAVE TOLD YOU
Part 1

1. Stuff a miniature marshmallow in the bottom of a sugar cone to prevent ice cream drips.

2. Use a meat baster to “squeeze” your pancake batter onto the hot griddle and you’ll get perfectly shaped pancakes every time....

3. To keep potatoes from budding, place an apple in the bag with the potatoes.

4. To prevent eggshells from cracking, add a pinch of salt to the water before hard-boiling.

5. Run your hands under cold water before pressing Rice Krispies treats in the pan and the marshmallow won’t stick to your fingers.

6. To get the most juice out of fresh lemons, bring them to room temperature and roll them under your palm against the kitchen counter before squeezing.

7. To easily remove burnt on food from your skillet, simply add a drop or two of dish soap and enough water to cover bottom of pan, and bring to a boil on the stovetop.

8. Spray your Tupperware with nonstick cooking spray before pouring in tomato-based sauces and there won’t be any stains.

9. When a cake recipe calls for flouring the baking pan, use a bit of the dry cake mix instead and there won’t be any white mess on outside of the cake.

10. If you accidentally over-salt a dish while it’s still cooking, drop in a peeled potato and it will absorb the excess salt for an instant “fix me up.”

11. Wrap celery in aluminum foil when putting in the refrigerator and it will keep for weeks.

13. Place a slice of apple in hardened brown sugar to soften it.

14. When boiling corn on the cob, add a pinch of sugar to help bring out the corn’s natural sweetness.

15. To determine whether an egg is fresh, immerse it in a pan of cool, salted water. If it sinks, it is fresh, but if it rises to the surface, throw it away.

16. Cure for headaches: Take a lime, cut it in half and rub it on your forehead. The throbbing will go away.

17. Don’t throw out all that leftover wine: Freeze into ice cubes for future use in casseroles and sauces.

18. If you have a problem opening jars: Try using latex dishwashing gloves. They give a non-slip grip that makes opening jars easy.

19. Potatoes will take food stains off your fingers. Just slice and rub raw potato on the stains and rinse with water.

20. To get rid of itch from mosquito bites, try applying soap on the area and you will experience instant relief.

21. Ants, ants, ants everywhere … Well, they are said to never cross a chalk line. So get your chalk out and draw a line on the floor or wherever ants tend to march. See for yourself.

22. Now look what you can do with Alka Seltzer. Clean a toilet. Drop in two Alka-Seltzer tablets, wait twenty minutes, brush and flush. The citric acid and effervescent action clean vitreous china. Clean a vase. To remove a stain from the bottom of a glass vase or cruet, fill with water and drop in two Alka-Seltzer tablets. Polish jewelry. Drop two Alka-Seltzer tablets into a glass of water and immerse the jewelry for two minutes. Clean a thermos bottle. Fill the bottle with water, drop in four Alka-Seltzer tablets, and let soak for an hour (or longer, if necessary). Unclog a drain. Clear the sink drain by dropping three Alka-Seltzer tablets down the drain followed by a cup of Heinz White Vinegar. Wait a few minutes, then run the hot water.

PART 2 THINGS YOUR MOTHER SHOULD OF TOLD YOU


1. Take your bananas apart when you get home from the store. If you leave them connected at the stem, they ripen faster.

2. Store your opened chunks of cheese in aluminum foil. It will stay fresh much longer and not mold!

3. Peppers with 3 bumps on the bottom are sweeter and better for eating. Peppers with 4 bumps on the bottom are firmer and better for cooking.

4. Add a teaspoon of water when frying ground beef. It will help pull the grease away from the meat while cooking.

5. To really make scrambled eggs or omelets rich add a couple of spoonfuls of sour cream, cream cheese, or heavy cream in and then beat them up.

6. For a cool brownie treat, make brownies as directed. Melt Andes mints in double broiler and pour over warm brownies. Let set for a wonderful minty frosting.

7. Add garlic immediately to a recipe if you want a light taste of garlic and at the end of the recipe if your want a stronger taste of garlic.

8. Leftover snickers bars from Halloween make a delicious dessert. Simply chop them up with the food chopper. Peel, core and slice a few apples. Place them in a baking dish and sprinkle the chopped candy bars over the apples. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes!!! Serve alone or with vanilla ice cream. Yummm!

9. Reheat Pizza
Heat up leftover pizza in a nonstick skillet on top of the stove, set heat to med-low and heat till warm. This keeps the crust crispy. No soggy micro pizza. I saw this on the cooking channel and it really works.

10. Easy Deviled Eggs
Put cooked egg yolks in a zip lock bag. Seal, mash till they are all broken up. Add remainder of ingredients, reseal, keep mashing it up mixing thoroughly, cut the tip of the baggy, squeeze mixture into egg. Just throw bag away when done easy clean up.

11. Expanding Frosting
When you buy a container of cake frosting from the store, whip it with your mixer for a few minutes. You can double it in size. You get to frost more cake/cupcakes with the same amount. You also eat less sugar and calories per serving.

12. Reheating refrigerated bread
To warm biscuits, pancakes, or muffins that were refrigerated, place them in a microwave with a cup of water. The increased moisture will keep the food moist and help it reheat faster.

13. Newspaper weeds away
Start putting in your plants, work the nutrients in your soil. Wet newspapers, put layers around the plants overlapping as you go. Cover with mulch and forget about weeds. Weeds will get through some gardening plastic they will not get through wet newspapers.

14. Broken Glass
Use a wet cotton ball or Q-tip to pick up the small shards of glass you can't see easily.

15. No More Mosquitoes
Place a dryer sheet in your pocket. It will keep the mosquitoes away.

16. Squirrel Away!
To keep squirrels from eating your plants, sprinkle your plants with cayenne pepper. The cayenne pepper doesn't hurt the plant and the squirrels won't come near it.

17. Flexible vacuum
To get something out of a heat register or under the fridge add an empty paper towel roll or empty gift wrap roll to your vacuum. It can be bent or flattened to get in narrow openings.

18. Reducing Static Cling
Pin a small safety pin to the seam of your slip and you will not have a clingy skirt or dress. Same thing works with slacks that cling when wearing panty hose. Place pin in seam of slacks and ... guess what! ... static is gone.

19. Measuring Cups
Before you pour sticky substances into a measuring cup, fill with hot water. Dump out the hot water, but don't dry cup. Next, add your ingredient, such as peanut butter, and watch how easily it comes right out. (Or spray the measuring cup or spoon with Pam before using)

20. Foggy Windshield?
Hate foggy windshields? Buy a chalkboard eraser and keep it in the glove box of your car When the windows fog, rub with the eraser! Works better than a cloth!

21. Re-opening envelopes
If you seal an envelope and then realize you forgot to include something inside, just place your sealed envelope in the freezer for an hour or two. Viola! It unseals easily.

22. Conditioner
Use your hair conditioner to shave your legs. It's cheaper than shaving cream and leaves your legs really smooth. It's also a great way to use up the conditioner you bought but didn't like when you tried it in your hair.

23. Goodbye Fruit Flies
To get rid of pesky fruit flies, take a small glass, fill it 1/2' with Apple Cider Vinegar and 2 drops of dish washing liquid; mix well. You will find those flies drawn to the cup and gone forever!

24. Get Rid of Ants
Put small piles of cornmeal where you see ants. They eat it, take it 'home,' can't digest it so it kills them. It may take a week or so, especially if it rains, but it works and you don't have the worry about pets or small children being harmed!

25. Dryer Filter
Even if you are very diligent about cleaning the lint filter in your dryer it still may be causing you a problem. If you use dryer sheets a waxy build up could be accumulating on the filter causing your dryer to over heat. The solution to this is to clean your filter with with a toothbrush and hot soapy water every 6 months.

Lorinda!!



══ღღ══════════════════ღღ══
 WHAT ARE YOU "WEIGHTING" FOR???
══ღღ══════════════════ღღ══

Wow check out Lorinda....great job!!

Howdy again! Thought I'd give a short update since it's been a while.
I found this photo in my album from 1/23/13 and took a big gulp at how much my face was fluffed up compared to now. You can actually see my jawline that isn't seen in the other photo. That double chin is still there, but not full.

Needless to say, I am so pleased and grateful to Jesus for directing me to Skinny Fiber last year. I will soon have my 53rd birthday and it will also be my 1st anniversary using Skinny Fiber! I have not fully reached my goal as of yet. My elbowitis seems to get in my way often.

Still maintaining between 155 lbs. and 157 lbs. I can not complain about that. I am still down 23 lbs. and no clue on the inches. I just know my clothes I wore this time last year are no longer working for me! Clothes I haven't been able to wear and were stored away, have been brought out because I fit in them now.

What are you waiting for??? Don't put it off any longer. Today can be the first day that you make that decision to finally put that fluff away and find your jawline again. Heck, if you are like me, you will even find those hips bones!

TWELVE SURPRISING USES FOR VICKS VAPORUB


TWELVE SURPRISING USES FOR VICKS VAPORUB

1. Decongest Your Chest
The most common use of Vicks is to decongest your chest and throat area. When applied to the upper chest, it provides excellent relief of cough and congestion symptoms.
2. On Your Tootsies
Applying Vicks to your feet provides nighttime cough relief. Generously rub VapoRub all over your feet and cover them with socks. Your cough will subside.
3. Achy Breaky Muscles
Vicks relieves sore, overworked muscles. It increases circulation and provides almost instant aid. Use a generous portion and apply it over the aching area.
4. Get Rid of Nasty Nail Fungus
Rub VapoRub on your toenails if you suspect you have a fungus. Within days, the nail will turn dark—this means the Vicks is killing the fungus. As your toenail grows out, the dark part will grow off and you will have fungus-free feet. Keep applying the ointment over a period of two weeks to fully cleanse nail beds of any remaining bacteria.
5. Stop Your Cat from Scratching
To prevent Miss Kitty from ruining your doors, walls, and windows, apply a small amount of VapoRub to these areas. Cats detest the smell and will steer clear. Vicks can also be applied to your arms and legs if your kitty is prone to scratching you.
6. Pet Pee-Pee Deterrent
If your dog or cat is not yet potty trained, put an open bottle of Vicks on the area he or she likes to mark as their territory. The smell will discourage them from lifting their legs and wetting your rug.
7. Headaches Be Gone
Rub a small amount of Vicks VapoRub on your temples and forehead to help relieve headaches. The mentholated scent will release pressure in your head and instantly
relieve pain.
8. Humidify Your Sleep
Vicks VapoRub can be used in special types of humidifiers and vaporizers. Ensure your humidifier has an aromatherapy compartment before using. The humidifier
will circulate Vicks throughout the air and keep you breathing easy all night long.
9. Paper Cuts and Splinters
To prevent infection and speed up healing time, dab a small amount of Vicks on any small cut or splinter.
10. Ticks and Bugs
If you get bitten by a tick, apply Vicks immediately. The strong odor might help get the critter to release itself and stop bugging you.
11. Reek-free Racehorses
Professional racers smother VapoRub under the nostrils of racehorses on race day. The strong stench deters the stallions from the alluring odor of the female pony and
keeps them focused on the race.
12. Go Away Mosquitoes (love this one!!!)
Apply small dabs of Vicks VapoRub to your skin and clothes and mosquitoes will steer clear. If you do get bitten, apply Vicks to the area and cover it with a Band-Aid to relieve itching.

DIY---Home Remedies for Sun Burn:


Home Remedies for Sun Burn:

1. Use compresses
Following a burn, skin is inflamed. Cool it down with compresses dipped in any of the following substances.

Cold water. Use either plain water from the faucet or add a few ice cubes, says Michael Schreiber, MD. Dip a cloth into the liquid and lay it over the burn. Repeat every few minutes as the cloth warms. Apply several times a day for a total of 10 to 15 minutes each.

Aluminum acetate. If itching is intense, says Thomas Gossel, PhD, RPh, try mixing Domeboro's powder packets (available in drugstores) with water. The aluminum acetate in the powder keeps skin from getting too dry or itchy. Follow package directions.

Witch hazel. Moisten a cloth with witch hazel, says Fredric Haberman, MD. This incredible astringent has been shown to have long-lasting anti-inflammatory relief. Apply often for temporary relief. For smaller areas, dip cotton balls into the liquid and gently wipe on.

SMART TIP: You can also direct a fan on the area to heighten cooling.

2. Apply these foods
Common kitchen staples can be great sunburn soothers.

Oatmeal. Wrap dry oatmeal in cheesecloth or gauze. Run cool water through it. Discard the oatmeal and soak compresses in the liquid. Apply every 2 to 4 hours.

Fat-free milk. Mix 1 cup fat-free milk with 4 cups water, then add a few ice cubes. Apply compresses for 15 to 20 minutes; repeat every 2 to 4 hours.

Cornstarch. Add enough water to cornstarch to make a paste. Apply directly to the sunburn.

Lettuce. Boil lettuce leaves in water. Strain, then let the liquid cool several hours in the refrigerator. Dip cotton balls into the liquid and gently press or wipe onto irritated skin.

Yogurt. Apply yogurt to all sunburned areas. Rinse off in a cool shower, then gently pat skin dry.

Tea bags. If your eyelids are burned, apply tea bags soaked in cool water to decrease swelling and help relieve pain. Tea has tannic acid, which seems to ease sunburn pain.

3. Avoid soap
Don't make it worse! Soap can dry and irritate burned skin.

Do not soak in soapy water. Likewise, stay away from bubble baths. If you must use soap, says Dr. Gossel, use only a mild brand and rinse it off very well. What you can do is take a cool bath, as an alternative to compresses. Add more water as needed to keep the temperature cool. Afterward, gently pat your skin dry with a clean towel. Do not rub your skin, or you'll irritate it further. You can also add one of the following to reduce pain, itching, and inflammation.

Vinegar. Mix 1 cup of white or apple cider vinegar into a tub of cool water, says Carl Korn, M.D. A great astringent, it soothes sunburn pain.

Aveeno. If the sunburn involves a large area, use the premeasured packets or add 1/2 cup of Aveeno Soothing Bath Treatment, made from oatmeal, to a tub of cool water, says Dr. Schreiber. Soak for 15 to 20 minutes. Aveeno is a well-known remedy for itching.

Baking soda. Generously sprinkle baking soda into tepid bathwater, suggests Dr. Haberman. Instead of toweling off, let the solution dry on your skin. It is completely nontoxic, and it will soothe the pain.

4. Memorize these rules
While the memory of your burn is still painfully fresh, brush up on your sun sense with these tips from Norman Levine, M.D.

Apply a sunscreen about 30 minutes before going out, even if it's overcast. (Harmful rays can penetrate cloud cover.) Don't forget to protect your lips, hands, ears, and the back of your neck. Reapply as necessary after swimming or perspiring heavily.
Pick a sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) between 15 and 30.

Sunscreens with SPF 15 protect against 94 percent of the sun's harmful rays, and those with SPF 30 protect against 97%. Also look for the ingredients zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, or avobenzone in your sunscreen. These block both ultraviolet A and B rays.

Take extra care between the hours of 10:00 AM and 3:00 PM (11:00 a.m. and 4:00 PM, daylight saving time), when the sun is at its strongest.

Wear protective clothing when not swimming. Hats, tightly woven fabrics, and long sleeves help keep the sun off your skin.

5. Moisturize
You've really damaged your skin. It's time to slather on lotion and begin repairs.

Soaks and compresses feel good and give temporary relief, says Rodney Basler, MD. But they can make your skin feel drier than before if you don't apply moisturizing skin care immediately afterward. Pat yourself dry, then smooth on some bath oil. Let it soak in for a minute, then apply a moisturizing cream or lotion, such as Eucerin.

SMART TIP: Chill your moisturizer in the fridge for added relief.

6. Shop for the right skin care
Filter all the choices at the drugstore by looking for these key healers.

Relieve with hydrocortisone: Soothe skin irritation and inflammation with a topical lotion, spray, or ointment containing 1 percent hydrocortisone, such as Cortaid or Cortizone-10, says Dr. Basler.

Soothe with aloe: "We're starting to see evidence in medical literature that aloe vera may really help wound healing," says Dr. Basler. Simply break off a leaf and apply the juice. But test a small area first, he cautions, to make sure you're not allergic to aloe.

Guard against infection: If you have an infection or are worried that one will develop, use an over-the-counter antibacterial ointment such as Polysporin or Neosporin, says Dr. Schreiber.

Numb with an anesthetic: If your burn is mild, an over-the-counter anesthetic can relieve pain and itching, says Dr. Gossel. Look for brands that contain benzocaine, benzyl alcohol, lidocaine, or diphenhydramine hydrochloride. Aerosols are easier to apply than creams or ointments, but never spray them directly onto your face. Instead, put some on a piece of gauze or a cotton pad and pat it on your face to avoid contact with your eyes.

7. Go to the freezer
Sunburns hurt! Follow your urge to reach for something cold, just make sure to do it right.

An ice pack can also provide relief if the burn is mild. Wrap it in a damp cloth and hold it over the sunburn. Improvise, if necessary, says Dr. Haberman. "You could even take a bag of frozen peas, for instance, and use that. But make sure to wrap it first so that you're not placing the icy package directly against your skin."

8. Eat and drink!
Put the right stuff in your body to aid your skin-saving efforts.

It's a good idea to drink lots of water to help counteract the drying effects of a sunburn, says Dr. Gossel. The water in fruit counts, too. One large wedge of watermelon provides 9 ounces—more than 1 full cup—of water. (It's also an excellent source of cancer-fighting lycopene.) Other fruit standouts: 1 c diced honeydew (5.4 ounces of water); 1 c sliced beets (5.2 ounces of water); 1 c cubed cantaloupe (5.1 ounces of water). Eat lightly but wisely, Dr. Gossel adds. A balanced diet helps provide the nutrients your skin needs to regenerate.

9. Take it easy
Put the right stuff in your body to aid your skin-saving efforts.

Sleeping on a sunburn can be challenging, but you need rest for your body to recover. Try sprinkling talcum powder on your sheets to minimize chafing and friction, says Dr. Haberman. An air mattress might also help you sleep more easily.

SMART TIP: If your legs are burned and your feet are swollen, elevate your legs above heart level to help stop the swelling, says Dr. Basler.

10. Beware of blisters
A sign of severe damage, blisters must be treated with care.

If blisters develop, you have a pretty bad burn. If they bother you and they cover only a small area, you may carefully drain them, says Dr. Basler. But do not peel the top skin off; you'll have less discomfort and danger of infection if air does not come in contact with sensitive nerve endings. To drain the fluid, first sterilize a needle by holding it over a flame. Then puncture the edge of the blister and press gently on the top to let the fluid come out. Do this three times in the first 24 hours, says Dr. Basler. Then leave the blisters alone.

11. Question your medications
Find out if you're photosensitive. We're not asking if you like to have your picture taken.

The question is whether certain drugs increase your sensitivity to the sun and lead to a burnlike dermatitis. Antibiotics, tranquilizers, and antifungal medications can cause reactions, says Dr. Basler. So can oral contraceptives, diuretics, drugs for diabetes, and even PABA-containing sunscreens. Always ask your doctor about potential side effects of any drugs you may be taking. Even common foods can trigger a bad reaction. "Two young women I know tried to lighten their hair with lime juice," he says. "They didn't realize what a potent photosensitizer lime juice can be until they developed terrible dermatitis every place the juice had run down their faces and arms."

12. Wise up
Don't make the same mistake twice.

After you've gotten burned, it takes 3 to 6 months for your skin to return to normal, says Dr. Schreiber. "When you get a sunburn and the top layer of skin peels off, the newly exposed skin is more sensitive than ever. That means you'll burn even faster than you did before if you're not careful." Be sensitive about your sun exposure and protect yourself with sunscreen, hats, and clothing.

SMART TIP: You can still get UV rays through windows, so apply sun block even when you’re not planning activities outside.

When to call the doctor
Some burns are simply too severe to be treated at the drugstore.

A severe burn can take a lot out of you, says Dr. Basler. Consult a doctor if you experience nausea, chills, fever, faintness, extensive blistering, general weakness, patches of purple discoloration, or intense itching. Be aware that if the burn seems to be spreading, you could have an infection compounding the problem.
