I have been doing an exercise program for going on my 6th week. Its called bodyflex and I found it on ebay for only $10.98 including shipping. since doing this program I have lost 4 pounds and over 17 1/2 inches measuring in 6 places. I also try to cut down on starchy food and eat fruits and vegetables, I also eat meat. I do eat potatoes, rice and other things in moderation. before I started this program I had also lost 4 other pounds just by cutting back on starchy foods&walking. I would recommend this program. its geared towards women, but men could do it too.

Do not forget drinking 8 to 10 glasses a day.


Fennel  

Posted by AC (West Midlands, England) on 08/26/2008

My Mother in law has a book about herbs -- growing them and the different things that they do.

The book is called "The book of herbs" and is by Dorothy Hall. This book was published in the 1970s, so if you are seeking it you may only find it used.

In this book, the author suggests that you can improve your eye sight by "boiling fennel leaves in water until the water is reduced by half" and applying this to the eyes every day when it's cool. She lists no exact qualities because she says these aren't necessary. The body will use what it needs and discard the rest.

She also suggests drinking fennel tea to keep slim. Maybe people are confusing fennel with fenugreek which would explain several recent comments about people gaining weight while taking fenugreek.

My question is, has anyone tried these remedies? I know that fennel is good for digestion, but for weight loss and eye sight too?

One of your contributors said that she had lost weight by taking the herb Fenugreek. I tried it for five days and couldn't stop eating and found that I'd put four pounds on in five days. And when I looked up Fenugreek I discovered that it is an appetite stimulant. So other readers please be aware.

I'm not questioning what the contributor said, because I think that we all react differently to what we intake. That was her experience and it rests there.

I recently went on holiday to China and Japan, and when I arrived back was struck with an overwhelming tiredness, and every bone in my body ached. Was it jet lag, I wondered, but the symptoms still continued, so I starting taking Apple Cider Vinegar, Maple Syrup, lemon juice, bi carb, and a dash of cayenne pepper. Within a couple of days I'd started to feel well again, and so have continued with this mixture, and I am amazed at the way it has increased my energy and well being.

However, I'm sorry to report there's been no weight loss!! Thanks for your web site. I do enjoy it!

This herb - regulates sugars but is more used in body building. Fennel is better for weight-loss.

Fenugreek tea helped me lose weight. HI all, I was introduced to fenugreek seeds by a physician that does colonics. He gave it to me for weight loss. Apparently fenugreek lowers blook pressure because it cuts fat cells. He informed me that we have fat on every cell in our bodies and that when you take fenugreek as a tea it cuts the fat on your cells, which is all of them, thus causing you to lose weight as well. The way I take it is to put 1 teaspoon to a teaspoon and a half in a mug and microwave it or you can boil it in a pot and make a larger amount. The best way to take it is as a tea but if you can't stand the taste you can do as I do. I add a tea bag after I have brought the tea to a boil and add suger and lemon juice or u can do honey. It is best if done at least three times a day. However, I was trying to test it out and was only drinking one cup a day. I tried it last year and lost 25 pounds (at one cup a day). I stopped for a while and recently picked it back up and in one week lost an additional ten pounds. All of the weight loss I am speaking of was done just drinking the tea once a day and with no excercise. So imagine what it would do with excercise and a proper diet. I highly recommend it for both high blood pressure and weight loss. Do try it, it works. Good luck and definately give your feed back of how it does for you.

As many others have written on this website- it is in your best interest to never microwave anything you drink or eat!

Hi everyone! I don't believe I am supposed to post a brand name here so I will leave that up to the powers that be. I don't like promoting anyones brands at the best of times. But usually that's cause I am never convinced that anything actually does the trick. I have found something that works for me, and has been working for many friends and family members. A fiber supplement made here in Canada. I bought mine at Walmart and wasn't expecting much. Have tried all the diet aids out there. Most of them made me feel spinny or grumpy. Like a form of speed. This product though is JUST fiber. It takes a bit of getting used to, and I had to start taking a digestive enzyme to help my tummy with getting used to this much fiber. The fiber turns to gel when you drink a lot of water. Something that you must do with this stuff. What's so cool about it is it makes my tummy feel full. I started out taking 2 capsules 1 hour before each of my two meals a day. I noticed I am not hungry in between meals. I feel full before I even attempt to eat so I naturally am eating way less. And I am not craving bad stuff or obsessing about food like I was before. I am certainly pooing a lot more, Sorry if that's too much info. I am just thrilled that something is working for me. I eat right and work out as much as I can with a knee injury. These last 30 pounds were not coming off, Being close to 50 yrs old prob isn't helping. I hope this info helps some of you as it is helping me. And I apologize for posting the product name. If its not allowed, maybe there is some other way to make the information available to people who could benefit from this amazing find. I have lost 5 pounds in 2 weeks, and haven't changed anything else. Still eating healthy food as I always am. I was getting so frustrated at not being able to use my treadmill due to a lingering knee injury. Fibroids and a sluggish thyroid make it almost impossible for me to lose weight. Iodine gave my thyroid a little help, but it was this fiber that got the pounds moving. Good luck everyone. It's an amazing discovery. Hope it helps you all too. Sammy

Food combining and sequential eating

I would like the opinion of the site on the above subjects. They sounded very good so I started this morning by having fruit, an apple, and now have indigestion which this system is supposed to eliminate.

Does it work and any suggestions?

Thank you,
Mary

I am 30 years old, but most of my friends ask me if I am still in High school. I have 2 kids, one is 6 years old and the other is 4 years, but I still look like a girl. I was not like this before, but after I started adding lot fruits and vegg to my lunch and dinner and eating in a timely manner, I lost almost 20 pounds in 6 months, and that didn't affect my glow, I usually see people loosing weight loose their natural glow in skin, But not me, as a matter of fact it improved my glow drastically....I even stopped eating non-veg and fatty foods. Trust me, it works like miracle...u too try....I never ever use any any cream or anything to my face, except for a regular daily moisturizer any brand with no grease in it

Is it safe to take Garcinia Cambogia for 3 weeks without causing serious liver damage? What is the most effective way to take this product?

Warning

Garcinia Cambogia, the supposed miracle weight loss supplement, caused severe diarrhea for about 6 months AFTER I stopped taking it.

Warning

Evidently, there are good scientific reasons to think that especially the prolonged use of garcinia cambogia extract increases the risk of diabetes in healthy people and worsens the disease in existing diabetics (described rather in detail in the scholarly report at How Garcinia Cambogia Side Effects Increase The Diabetes Risk).

Several of the physiological processes that product is accomplish that overlap with statin drugs which are clearly implicated with notably causing diabetes because both agents inhibit the production of cholesterol in the body.


General Feedback

I just have to share this. Even though I have taught Hatha Yoga most of my adult life, I was unable to lose the fertility goddess marks, namely belly fat and heavy boobs. Even though at another time in history, that was alright.

Then, on becoming vegan and shunning wheat and gluten, in about four months I lost it! Now I can crunch a bra in one fist, and fittings are a problem of the past. All this due to education on EC!

It feels great ladies! . Namaste, Om

In my 20s I was 5 foot 3 inches tall. I gained like 50 pounds of weight and held most of it in my 30's. Now I am 5 foot 1 inch. Has anyone ever heard of this? I am losing the weight and hope to get my height back. Thanks.

You are losing the height because the excess weight is compacting on your joints to make you shorter. Once you loose the weight as long as there is not permanent issues with your joints you should gain the inches you lost in your height back. Good luck with the weight loss. I am doing the same as you working to get the extra off.

I would like to know if it is important to ingest fat daily (good fats such as coconut oil, etc.), or if the body can use stored fat to process the fat soluble vitamins. For those who have plenty of stored fat, would it be better to go on a fat free diet for a while, as long as one eats healthy foods and not the toxic processed diet foods? Thank you very much.

Never go on a fat free diet, or low fat. Use healthy cold pressed oils. Your body needs fats to work properly. Stored fat will not work the same way, as it has changed forms, and functions. Stored fat if used will be for energy, and only after muscle, and other tissues.
