Don’t Complain To Me That You Can’t Lose Weight

This Isagenix plan is not just a weight loss plan it is also a body cleansing  plan. It appears that it works. There is probably some naysayers out there but there always is no matter what you do or say. Their loss. I have not lost any yet as I have not started the program because I am here in New Zealand and my products were delivered to my home in Australia. Soon as I get back I am going to start it, mainly to cleanse and lose 10lbs or there abouts. My husband has been on it for a week and a half and has lost almost 10lbs. He actually enjoyed the cleansing day which is something for a person who likes a few sips of whiskey in the evening. Very proud of him. Anyway take a look at this video as it is research done on this product by the ABC. Interesting.

The expense of this product may seem rather high but remember you will be replacing a lot of food.  Probably what you would spend on food a month would be a lot more than the cost of this product if not more, each month. Its a money saver as well as getting back your energy and health.

This Whiskey Wedge rocks glass keeps all of these desirable qualities in precise balance. These unique whiskey glasses include a specially made ice form, creating a wedge-shaped slab of ice that rests perfectly in the glass. This allows the ice to melt a lot slower and not dilute the taste of your favorite spirits be it whiskey or Bourbon or any other spirit.

Optional engraving is also available. This of course would make it a very personal gift.
This is a great gift for your guy who appreciates a good nip or two. This gift is also something different and you know how I like different. (“If you don’t do different nothing will change”)

Did You Know – 09/10/2012

Do you know that monotremes, is an order of animals that both lay eggs and suckle their young. The only two remaining species of this order are the platypus and the echidna, which are native to Australia. Monotremes are also unique among mammals with their ability of electroreception (perceiving electrical impulses with their bodies.)

A frightened dog puts it’s tail between it’s legs because it covers the scent glands in the anal area. Since the anal glands carry personal scents that identify individual dogs, the tail-between the-legs behavior is the canine equivalent of insecure humans hiding their faces.

Spirit of proof strength was the technical standard by which strength was measured until 1st January, 1980. Hundreds of years ago, spirit of this strength was proved when Whiskey and gunpowder were mixed and ignited. If the gunpowder flashed, then there was enough Whiskey in the mixture to permit ignition. Such Whiskey was held to have been proved – i.e. “tested”. If the spirit was weaker than this, then ignition did not take place and the Whiskey failed the “test”. The amount of black powder used was the same amount as was, and indeed still is, used to “proof” the barrels of smooth-bore fire-arms

Don’t Drink And Buy

Did you know that if you have been drinking you are likely to spend more online?

According to HLNTV this morning, studies found we are likely to blow caution to the wind when it comes to spending under the influence of alcohol.

It appears that we drink and buy more in the evenings. Some companies offer great specials late at night taking the opportunity of the survey that sales are particularly heavy in the evenings.

So you may end up questioning the parcels you might get in the mail, like some sexual equipment or some hat or handbag that is totally not your taste in fashion. Or in some cases, you might book yourself an extravagant vacation, as a result of one too many glasses of wine or whiskey.

So do not drink and buy – It is financially hazardous

Poem Friday – Whiskey, Wine or Beer

Whiskey, Wine or Beer
Author: Lesley Voth

I hope your christmas day was fun
The stress gone, the shopping all done

It is for me a special time to give and share
To those you love and to those that simple pleasures are rare

We take the time and make the effort to chat and skype
Email everyone, pleasant and happy words we type

In a few days it is New Years Eve
An evening of fun and frivolity I believe

2012, it came up on us so fast didn’t it
2011, bloody good its going, twas a year of shit

Though a good thing has come from 2011, many families glad to receive
Bringing our soldiers from Iraq home, permanently, not a temporary leave

It brings tears to our eyes to see the young children’s delight
Mum or Dad is home for good, they no longer have that war to fight

It does make me sad though when I think of those children in that war
Those babies that were killed, Parents hearts torn to the core
Dear Lord we pray for no more

No more killing, no children lay dying
No more leaving families in pain and crying

So I hope you had a great Christmas and have a fabulous New Year
It is prosperous, healthy, happy and full of good cheer

The New Year 2012 is almost here
So lift your glass whether its filled with Whiskey, Wine Or Beer

Its Had The Life Sucked Out Of It!

In an interview the other day, Deepak Chopra was asked a question about how to live a healthy life, he had four answers, one of them being, do not buy any food with a label or in a can, it has no life.

You may not agree with his philosophies but you need to agree with that one. He is so right and why do I say that? Think about it, if it is in a can it has been cooked to hell and back and not an ounce of life is left in it and if it has a label it has either been cooked till it is dry like the packet it is in or it is in some form of powder and no life in it either.

This is a subject dear to my heart and have been pontificating about it for years to mostly deaf ears and some who think I was rather eccentric. This is an example. I love to cook meals and pride myself in using fresh herbs and spices when I can, only to be horrified to see someone put ketchup on their meal. Depending on who they are I say nothing it is their choice, but if it is a family member, then they get a tongue lashing from me. Why you might ask? Well they might as well pour sugar, salt and chemicals on their meal. They will not even taste the natural herbs and spices I used.

Here is a reason why most of our countries population is over weight and suffer from those muffin tops and big bellies. If you are eating a sausage or any meat for that matter without ketchup you would probably have one helping and that would satisfy your appetite. If you put ketchup on your sausage , steak chips or whatever is on your plate  you can be sure you will have another helping. What happens is the salt and the sugar plus the chemicals will stimulate your taste buds and you will crave for more. I learnt this many years ago from a nutritionist called Adele Davis who wrote a book called “Lets eat right.” She was not wrong.  I believe that book is a result of my good health today.

What really started me on this subject was a program on ’60 Minutes’ about a company called Givaudan, which is one of many that make flavors for our food. This particular Swiss company is in 45 different countries, its purpose is find flavors that will create a craving. An example of this is soups, anything in a can, packet or box.

They have people in their company who have a job of finding different flavors that will appeal to us the public.  They call  sniffers. This group will go around to, real fruit farms and sniff their top quality fruit for that special flavor extract the flavor molecules, head off back to the factory and mimic that flavor with chemicals. Their main aim is to produce a flavor that is not lingering so you want to come back for more. Basically they are creating an addictive taste.

Chemicals, well they are man-made we know that when we see that label.
Natural flavors? Well that is not what the label implies. There is really nothing natural about flavorings. Flavors are manipulated and then give you the impression tat you are tasting a natural product. It is absolutely an illusion
Another example of this is they can manufacture the old oak tree flavor for some cheap whiskeys to give you the impression they have been stored in oak barrels.

For them its is like music, they call all their different flavors ‘notes’. They store thousands of different ‘notes’ to make thousands of different flavors for food. Many of those flavorings are also used in most restaurants where you think you are getting real deal.

That chicken that you thought was smoked–artificial flavoring. That barbeque fish from your favorite restaurant well the chances are that’s just flavoring. That grilled steak, that barbecued steak, yes the same.

Those flavored chips, ready to eat meals, soup, stews, rice dishes, almost every product in the supermarket has been enhanced artificially and intensified with fat, sugar or salt, to create the addiction to the taste.

Dr Kessler who is a former head of the FDA was saying that the flavors are so stimulated it actually hijack the brain. It makes food super palatable and makes us eat more.

We want healthy food but most of us will not eat anything that is bland, hence we have the flavors produced to make us enjoy  eating it. We don’t want to eat anything that has sugar in it, but we wont eat anything that is not sweet, so they make a flavor that gives the impression of sweet.
The whole purpose is to make the tasting experience memorable and a desire to eat more.

So you may ask why our nations people are getting fatter and finding it very hard to lose weight yourself. Well here is your answer.

Your answer to a weight problem is to observe what you buy and stay with natural ‘Fresh’ food as much as you can.

If you don’t do different nothing will change

Another interesting piece of information I received today was on the statement that Dr Oz made a few months ago about the high levels of arsenic in apple juice.

Dr Oz was criticized and ridiculed by the FDA, some of the media, and some members of his own profession.

Apparently the FDA stretched the truth (lied) about some of the facts and now has apologized to Dr OZ and agreed that his statement was correct.
Good one Dr Oz.
