Aloe Drinking Gel

Aloe Drinking Gel

Aloe Drinking Gel

So I’ve started drinking the forever living aloe drinking gel and oh my days I won’t ever go back to not drinking this!

I’ll be honest the taste was a shock, the aloe drinking gel is definitely an acquired taste but you quickly get over that and the benefits are so worth it and far outweigh the unusual taste!

So I started drinking the aloe drinking gel more out of curiosity rather than thinking I needed it for something in particular. My mum is currently drinking the forever freedom aloe drinking gel which has glucosomine in it and is designed for people with mobility concerns and athletes. But I’ll come back to that in a minute!

Anyway like I said I started the aloe drinking gel out of curiosity but what I actually discovered was that I wasn’t a good sleeper. After a couple of weeks of taking a shot of the gel I noticed that I was falling asleep quickly, wasn’t waking during the night and was waking in the morning feeling completely refreshed. I can’t remember the last time that happened and now its happening every day!!! I can only put this down to the aloe drinking gel!

My mum is also drinking the forever freedom aloe drinking gel which she is hoping will help with her arthritic knees (still early days yet but watch this space!) But one thing she did say to me was that her hair has started to shine. She’s always had quite dry hair from lots of colouring over the years but she said she looked in the mirror and had to do a double take because her hair had such a shine to it that she hasn’t seen in years! Again she’s not changed anything so can only attribute it to the aloe drinking gel!

How about you? Are you curious enough to try it?? Click here to try and buy!

Ketone Review

Earlier this year I did a trial of some raspberry ketone and green coffee bean supplements so I could do a ketone review. Check the ketone review post to read about all of the benefits before scrolling through to see the results!!

I used the ketone supplements for 1 month and took them 3 times daily as instructed and I am pleased to report that my ketone review is a positive one! I took some photos as well as some measurements as 1 month is enough time to see a change but it will never be a dramatic change! So here are my photos (top before, below is after) and measurements:

Ketone Review

Ketone Review & Results

25th April 2016

  1. 8st 7lbs
  2. Chest: 30 inches
  3. Waist: 24.5 inches
  4. Hips: 36 inches
  5. Thigh: 21 inches

1st May 2016

  1. 8st 4lbs
  2. Chest: 30 inches
  3. Waist: 24 inches
  4. Hips: 35 inches
  5. Thigh: 20.5 inches

So the results of this ketone review show a total of 2 inches lost over the body within 1 month, and a 3lb weight loss! I was definitely pleased with these results!!!

Whilst I was taking the tablets it was an odd one; rather than feeling like I suddenly had more energy or feeling fuller for longer, I didn’t notice a sudden change, but when I stopped taking the ketone tablets I suddenly noticed I wasn’t taking them because the effect had worn off. So it was more of a natural and gradual improvement over the month rather than instantaneous. So anyone wanting to try these ketone supplements should definitely bear that in mind!! So would I recommend ketone supplements? Sure! But don’t expect a miracle overnight! Ketone tablets are no different to anything else natural and healthy and that means that it takes time to see huge results but when you do they will be lasting results! But why don’t you be the judge of that 🙂

Nut Milk

Nut milk

Nut Milk

People mocked my nut milk bag purchase despite this being something I’d wanted to buy for AGES but had never quite gotten around to it. I have to say buying this was literally one of the single most exciting days of my life, only trumped by the fact that I actually made my own nut milk quickly a few days later!!

Raspberry Ketone and Green Coffee Bean Supplement Review

raspberry ketones and green coffee bean extract

raspberry ketones and green coffee bean extract

It’s that time of year where everyone starts thinking about their upcoming summer holidays. The clocks have gone forward for the spring so the nights are staying lighter for longer and there’s that feeling in the air of a fresh start and making changes and really starting to refocus and motivate yourself to pick up those slightly forgotten news years resolutions!

I’m no different! It’s really difficult to keep on track when all you want to do is hunker down on the sofa with a blanket and watching Netflix boxsets back to back instead of hitting the gym hard! I’ve been feeling really sluggish after taking some time off from exercising due to being unwell and now it’s time to kickstart and as part of this I will be using some Raspberry Ketone and Green Coffee Bean supplements to help keep my energy levels up and to help store less fat! I will be trialling these over the next month and will be updating and reviewing on my progress.

So firstly let’s talk about the benefits of raspberry ketones and green coffee beans! These supplements are designed to balance blood sugar levels and boost general health and wellbeing. The raspberry ketone extract is claimed to help cause the fat within cells to break down more effectively and therefore helps the body to burn fat quicker. Raspberry ketones also help to increase levels of adiponectin, a hormone which helps regulate metabolism.

The second bit; green coffee bean extract also works alongside the raspberry ketones by providing an active ingredient called chlorogenic acid. This is believed to boost metabolism by up to 11%! It also reduces the absorption of carbs and lowers blood sugar levels and spikes in insulin.

So it’s fair to say that combined the benefits of both the raspberry ketones and the green coffee bean extract should assist a well balanced diet and regular exercise to achieve weight loss goals.

It’s really important to remember that there is no such thing as magic beans and these are a supplement to assist. A healthy and active lifestyle combined with a clean diet is key and these should give you the extra help along the way, and will help your body to stay fuelled with the energy need for all of the exercise!

I will post before and after pictures in 4 weeks time and then you can be the judge of whether or not these raspberry ketones and green coffee bean extract supplements are worth while.

If you’ve tried them before, why not share your experience of them!

My Vitamins Carb Blocker

My Vitamins Total Carb BlockerA life without carbs is not a life worth living and they are essential to a well balanced diet and are a source of energy for exercisers, but they also have their flaws in that you can risk storing carbs as fat rather than using it as energy and that’s where these handy My Vitamin Carb Blockers come in to play!

I’ve started using the My Vitamins Total Carb Blockers as part of my regime.

Quite simply the benefits of the Carb Blockers is that they are made up of white kidney bean extract. White kidney extract quite simply prevents the breakdown of carbs into glucose i.e. it turns less into fat. So this will help aid anyone looking to lose weight where a high carb diet is consumed. And it also helps to maintain lean muscle mass. Read more to see how to use them and the benefits they can have………

Cacao & Agave Chia Pod

cacao agave chia pod

 

I’ve been at it again! I’ve made another flavour chia pod to add to my list! Can’t wait to keep adding some more! This one is by far my favourite!

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp agave nectar
  • 1 tsp cacao powder

Method:

  • Mix all ingredients together in a small kilner jar or ramekin dish
  • Make sure the cacao powder is really well blended, you may have to make a small folding action to get this to mix in well.
  • Pop in the fridge for the seeds to swell and for the mixture to chill overnight.

I’m going to keep adding recipes for these Chia pods, if anyone has any ingredient requests that they want me to experiment with add them in the comments and I will try and make something to tantalise your tastebuds 🙂
