Quotes from: Wilson, J. A. (2001). Adrenal Fatigue: The 21st
Century Stress Syndrome.
Petaluma, CA:Smart Publications.


I had never heard about Adrenal Fatigue until I had my hormones tested. THEN the alarming truth surfaced when I learned that my cortisol levels (affected by adrenal glands) were malfunctioning and ultimately contributing to my muffin top. UGH! I must get rid of the belly beast and will do what it takes once and for all to conquer this. So here is my story and adrenal health 101 facts and advice on this….

So I am writing this to alert my blog readers that if you feel like you cannot lose weight and are eating a normal diet, then please note “this is not your fault if you have adrenal fatigue that is sabotaging your success by lowering your metabolism. PLEASE READ ON…

This important information is significant and should be taken to heart by everyone! The news is out that stress is contributing to a spike in cortisol which can affect and create a condition known as adrenal fatigue. This in turn may cause many health problems like bloating, extreme fatigue and depression, weight gain (especially middle section), Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, foggy thinking,  lack of sex drive, and even Alzheimer’s. There are easy solutions to correcting the imbalance and restoring your body to “balance” regaining your energy and life again including weight loss!

The adrenal glands sit over the kidneys, where they play a significant role in the body, secreting more than 50 hormones necessary for life, including epinephrine (adrenaline), cortisol, dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), progesterone and testosterone. Since they produce so many essential hormones, the adrenal glands are responsible for many of the functions we need to stay alive and healthy, including:

  • Energy production — carbohydrate, protein and fat conversion to blood glucose for energy
  • Fluid and electrolyte balance
  • Fat storage

One hormone in particular, cortisol, is extremely important for keeping our body systems in balance, as well as protecting our cells. For example:

  • It controls the strength of the immune system: Too much cortisol weakens the immune system, setting the motions for increased susceptibility to infections and cancer, while too little leads to an overactive immune system and autoimmune disease.
  • It normalizes blood sugar.
  • It regulates blood pressure.

These small but mighty glands also work with other hormones and systems in what Dr. Wilson calls a “symphony.” As he points out, when one part of this symphony drops out, such as what happens after menopause for women and andropause for men, the adrenal glands have to pick up the slack by producing larger amounts of sex hormones. Because of this, Wilson claims, good adrenal gland function is linked to longevity.

Unfortunately, the adrenal glands’ health is paradoxical. As the manufacturer of adrenaline, they are the “glands of stress,” but are also the first glands to fail during prolonged or intense periods of stress. The problem with stressors is that they are “cumulative,” in the sense that their impact tends to add up in the body over time until your adrenal glands (and probably your mental state) just can’t take anymore. “One more stress is the stress that breaks the camel’s back,” Dr. Wilson says. , or when the adrenal glands can’t deal with the amount of stress they’re given. Adrenal fatigue used to be rare, but is now all too common because of our lack of relaxation and other lifestyle factors, such as smoking, sleep deprivation, poor eating habits and excessive caffeine intake, as well as allergies.

Diagnosing (and misdiagnosing) adrenal fatigue

To make matters worse, doctors often don’t diagnose this problem. Dr. Wilson offers the example of a woman who has been to 37 doctors before finally receiving proper diagnosis and a renewed sense of hope. So, why don’t doctors recognize adrenal fatigue? In medical school, they are only taught to look for extreme adrenal malfunction — Addison’s Disease, which occurs when the glands produce far too little cortisol, and Cushing’s Syndrome, which stems from excessive cortisol production. They check adrenal function by testing ACTH levels, using a bell curve to recognize abnormal levels. This is where the problem occurs. ACTH tests only consider the top and bottom 2 percent of the curve abnormal, yet symptoms of adrenal malfunction occur after 15 percent of the mean on both sides of the curve. In other words, your adrenal glands can be functioning 20 percent below the mean and the rest of your body experiencing symptoms of adrenal fatigue, yet most mainstream physicians won’t recognize that you have a problem.

Fortunately, there are ways you can test yourself for adrenal fatigue. To start off, go ahead and “check off” the symptoms you have been experiencing.

Symptoms of adrenal fatigue:

  • Morning fatigue — You don’t really seem to “wake up”., even if you’ve been awake since  6 a.m.
  • Weight gain in mid upper section that is hard to the touch and you cannot get rid of despite exercise and diet.
  • Afternoon “low” (feelings of sleepiness or clouded thinking) from 2 to 4 p.m.
  • Cold hands or feet
  • Burst of energy at 6 p.m. — You finally feel better from your afternoon lull.
  • Sleepiness at 9 to 10 p.m. — However, you resist going to sleep.
  • Wake up during the night.
  • Cravings for foods high in salt and fat
  • Increased PMS or menopausal symptoms
  • Mild depression
  • Lack of energy
  • Decreased ability to handle stress
  • Muscular weakness
  • Increased allergies and seem to get respiratory illnesses or other more frequently
  • Lightheadedness when getting up from a sitting or laying down position
  • Decreased sex drive
  • Frequent sighing/ yawning

For information on easy ways to reverse adrenal fatigue contact beckylgould@gmail.com

The best test to determine if you have adrenal fatigue is by doing a salivary cortisol test. You don’t need a prescription for the exam. In fact, you can even buy the test online, do it at home and send in your sample to a lab for the results. Dr. Wilson is very positive about the effectiveness of the salivary cortisol test in diagnosing adrenal fatigue. It is so valid and accepted that Plan B Medicare covers it and “they don’t want to cover anything they don’t have to,” he quips. If you don’t have insurance, rest assured that this non-invasive test is also very affordable.

Treatment of adrenal fatigue

“Optimal adrenal health is one of the major keys to the enjoyment of life,” according to Dr. Wilson. If you have adrenal fatigue, you can fully live life again by making the necessary lifestyle and dietary changes to treat your disorder. For holistic alternatives contact beckylgould@gmail.com or with any questions

Treating adrenal fatigue is as easy as:

  • Lying down during your work breaks (preferably at 10 a.m. and again anytime from 3 to 5 p.m.)
  • Sleeping until 9 a.m. as often as possible
  • Laughing- very theraputic
  • Exercising- even mile exercise helps
  • Taking negative people out of your life
  • Eating regular meals
  • Chewing well
  • Doing something fun each day
  • Combining unrefined carbohydrates with protein and oils
  • Avoiding junk food
  • Eating five to six servings of vegetables each day
  • Taking calcium and magnesium supplements
  • Adding sea salt to your diet
  • Taking 2,000 to 5,000 milligrams of vitamin C each day
  • Supplementing vitamin E with mixed tocopherols
  • Taking B-complex supplements that are high in B6 and pantothenic acid
  • Adding licorice root extract to your dietary supplement regimen

The good news it that I am taking steps to correct my adrenal fatigue and so can you! Without a strong adrenal gland we set ourselves up for health problems.

My Personal Journey with Bio-Identical Hormones- Appointment #2 After Hormone Testing

  Appointment #2 HORMONE TEST RESULTS –  My Journey with Bio-Identical Hormones

So I hope everyone is as excited as I am to go down this journey as I start on bio-identical hormones. I am publically announcing the truth even if the truth stinks, is embarrassing, graphic or humbling. So please bear with me, here goes…

I am a 51 year old “semi-hip “mother of 3 (last one just left the next-mm-sad) and experiencing such frustration with my life. The past 4 years have been a strain physically and emotionally as I watch my body begin to deteriorate; composition, skin, hair, energy, just life changing drastically.  I suddenly feel like I am in a body of an unidentified object-“THIS CANNOT REALLY BE ME, CAN IT?”

So that is what inspired my blog in the first place. I guess it is natural that when things change (hot flashes, chin hair, fat growing on my belly, etc., etc.) that we desperately seek out “what to do”. So that is when I started to research diet aids to help me to lose this ghastly weight, mainly around my mid-section. I literally (no joke) have hundreds of products lining my shelves to help me to get my “Becky back”. I think she is hiding in a “Where’s Waldo” book somewhere!

In the past few months it seems that I am able to shed a few pounds here and there, but overall and intuitively, I FEEL THAT SOMETHING IS NOT RIGHT IN MY BODY In the past I had always had a great shape, low blood pressure, perfect cholesterol, normal blood tests until NOW….Suddenly it seems like in just a matter of 4 years my perfect health and body is crumbling down! Cholesterol is up, liver failing, blood pressure high, boobs pointing south, chin hair pointing north, and belly so fat I look 4 months pregnant! This is so disgusting and depressing. So I set out on this mission to conquer the alien that has taken over my body!

So here I am now on my second appointment with my Bio-Identical Dr. Dianne. Welcoming me with a hug and a smile it was so wonderful to see her shining face (mine was shining too, but from a hot flash). I felt comforted as I noted that a previous client, also coming in for Bio-Identical hormones, was smiling like a happy kitten as she left with her daughter and goodie bag in hand. I was  secretly wondering what kind of “happy pills” she was prescribed and wanted some immediately!

After we sat down, Dr. Dianne said to me, “so after reviewing your saliva hormone test results,  now I understand why you are not feeling very good!  We have some work ahead of us to get you all balanced out.” ( I really Like that word BALANCED, don’t you? I have been feeling like an acemetrical blonde that would forget her head if it was not attached!)

Both panic and relief set in immediately, but Dianne was quick to reassure me that everything would be just FINE and that I would still feel 25% better the first week on the program then increase 25% thereafter each week. WHEW, relief—

She pulled out my file and continued to go over the test results. This was the BIG MOMENT, perhaps a turning point for me…TA_DAAAAA. Science does not lie and so the facts were in front of me and they pointed to a major imbalance in my hormones that were in turn totally responsible for the symptoms I was experiencing! SO maybe it was not my fault that I was turning into a beast! What a relief! Maybe I will be able to conquer the demon once and for all!!!!

Hope is such a BIG world for me…Hope is HAPPY, hope is willing, and hope is BEAUTIFUL! I had a glimpse of HOPE, YEAHHHH!!!! Thank you God!

So let me explain what I learned when Dianne showed me the test results.

 First, she showed me my estrogen levels, mainly “estradiol”. This level was very high. Then she went on to show me the numbers for the progesterone level, which was EXTREMELY LOW, I mean “off the charts low!” This imbalance was called “Estrogen Dominance” and was not a healthy balance, in fact, can even set me up for cancer. Then she explained where the hormones needed to be in order to complement each other to be “balanced”. She continued to cover where all of the other hormone levels were and what she would prescribe to fix this mess I was in.! She reassured me that the symptoms, including weight gain, were partially to do with the hormones. She said that when the body is working together in harmony, the symptoms would subside, and body would go back to a more natural state of being. I would not be aging so quickly like I had been. Hair and skin would become less dry, hot flashes diminish, weight loss would become easier, and a natural “calmness” would take place as well as the “fog would lift”. This is called “balance”. OM-Gosh I was so excited to feel the calm after this  storm!

Then Dianne went showed me my test results for cortisol which is controlled by the Adrenal glands. The graph showed where the normal range of cortisol should be. My levels fell below the normal line ( ugh, sigh, frown).

Dr. Dianne explained to me that this adrenal fatigue was consistent with the estrogen dominance showed in my hormone levels. So this hormone imbalance was causing damage to other organs because when hormones are “not talking in sync to one another” it affects EVERY ORGAN OF THE BODY. As a result my adrenal glands were not firing on all cylinders, sluggish and creating other side effects as a result (including weight gain).

Just as soon as she saw my face (bit worried) she pulled out a book by Dr. James Wilson about Adrenal Fatigue.  She explained to me that she had worked with him and discovered that there is a relatively easy solution to fixing the adrenal fatigue problem! The cortisol levels were a major contributing factor in the specific “belly fat” that had crept on.  She went over a few supplements that she suggested I take, plus introduced the hormone prescription that she had written to balance my system.

The prescribed hormone treatment plan was covered in detail. I would be picking up my own personal dosed prescription from a pharmacy who would compound the formula specifically (yes, CUSTOM Hormones) for Becky G, exactly for my needs. Diane explained that these bio-identical would be the exact replica of what is natural to the body (they are NOT SYNTHETIC, they are NATURAL). This is very important because the synthetic ones are not good!

Dr. Dianne went on to explain how the personally prescribed cream is on a precision dosage system that is easy to use. She demonstrated to me how the dose comes out and how to apply it to your under-forearm area where the skin is the thinnest. She explained that the cream is absorbed into the veins and blood stream with a majority in 20 minutes and then remainder within the hour (so not to shower after application).

Excited as heck and recovering from another hot flash, I gathered up my prescription paperwork and my adrenal fatigue supplements like an excited 4 year old with a Halloween bag of treats. Gave Dianne another “hot flash hug” and nearly ran to my car with excitement. Hope, yes  I HAVE HOPE!

So today, August 17, 2012  I have officially had my first dose of my special hormone happy cream and am waiting for happy to happen!

I will be staying in touch with Dr. Dianne every step of the way. I will contact her if there are any side effects or issues with how the supplements  or the hormone cream are working. She told me on the way out f her office that people usually do not see anything changing until about day 6. But then by day 10 she says that it is a 90 degree turn for the better! I will see her in 2 months for a follow up and more cortisol testing. I will write a weekly blog on my results and then a follow up after my 2 month appointment.

I will be sharing my story, my emails back and forth from or to Dr. Dianne, and my ups or downs (hopefully UPS).

I will keep you POSTED, so stay tuned and join my blog so that you don’t miss out on the fun ride down “hormone lane”.

Best regards for a healthy ,happy and “balanced” you!

Qnexa renamed Qsymia for Weight Loss is Approved by the FDA….FACTS and SIDE EFFECTS

Qsymia diet pill approved by FDA

On Tuesday, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Qsymia, the second new diet drug in a month, and the most effective of the weight-loss pills that the agency has considered in recent years.
Qsymia, made by Vivus Inc., receives market approval on the heels of Arena’s Belviq (lorcaserin), the diet pill cleared by the FDA in late June. Before these two new drugs, the last prescription weight-loss pill to be green-lit by the government was Roche’s Xenical (orlistat) 13 years ago, in 1999.
Diet pills have had a spotty history with the FDA, largely because of safety problems involving the heart. Other drugs — most notably fenfluramine, used in the popular weight-loss combination fen-phen — have been withdrawn from the market for such hazards, and new drugs have had to clear a high bar for consideration.
(MORE: A Brief History of Diet Pills and the FDA) The new pill, formerly known as Qnexa (the FDA asked Vivus to change the name to avoid confusion with another drug on the market), will be available by the fourth quarter of this year, according to the company’s president, Peter Tam.
Here’s what you need to know.
Who can use Qsymia? The drug is approved for obese adults with a body mass index, or BMI, of 30 or higher. It can also be used by overweight adults, with a BMI of 27 or higher, if they have at least one weight-related condition such as high blood pressure, Type 2 diabetes or high cholesterol.
How does it work? Qsymia is a combination of two existing drugs: phentermine, an appetite-suppressing stimulant that has long been used for short-term weight loss, and topiramate, an anti-seizure medication used to treat epilepsy that makes people feel fuller after eating.
Some doctors have already been prescribing the two drugs together for weight loss. Researchers say the key to Qsymia’s success is that it targets multiple brain pathways that trigger overeating. How much weight will I lose? It varies. In clinical trials, overweight and obese patients taking Qsymia for a year lost differing amounts of weight: on average, patients taking a middle dose of the drug lost 8.4% of their body weight; on a higher dose, patients lost 10.6%. Most of the weight came off in the first three months, so doctors should monitor patients at that point to see if the drug is working. The FDA notes that people who don’t lose at least 3% of their body weight by three months are unlikely to go on to lose any significant weight, so they should either be counseled to discontinue the drug or to try a higher dose (Qsymia will be available in two doses). If patients still don’t lose at least 5% of their weight after three additional months on the higher dose, they should quit taking Qsymia. The drug is designed to be used in conjunction with traditional weight-management strategies like diet and exercise. “This is not a magic pill. Patients can’t take it and think that’s all they have to do. It needs to be used with a lifestyle modification program,” W. Timothy Garvey, chair of the department of nutrition sciences at the University of Alabama-Birmingham, who studied Qsymia, told USA Today.
(MORE: The Secrets to Weight Loss: Keep a Food Journal, Don’t Skip Meals, Eat In) What if I just want to drop a few pounds? Doctors stress that because of the potential risks of the drug, dieters should not use the drug for cosmetic weight loss. “It’s not for patients who want to lose a few pounds,” Tam told USA Today. Of course, concerns remain that once the drug is on the market, doctors can prescribe it to all comers. To prevent that, Qsymia will be available only by mail order at first, so that physicians can’t dispense it from their offices. It will also be available in specialized pharmacies that register for the right to sell the drug, where pharmacists have been educated about Qsymia’s risks and can pass that information along to patients and doctors. What are the risks? Potential heart problems and birth defects. In trials, some people taking Qsymia had an increased heart rate as well as a condition called metabolic acidosis, which can lead to hyperventilation, fatigue and anorexia. One of the ingredients in Qsymia, topiramate, has also been linked in previous studies to birth defects including cleft lip and cleft palate in women who take it during pregnancy. Safety concerns led the FDA to reject Qsymia’s first bid for approval in 2010, but the agency and Vivus have now put in place strategies to reduce risk: for example, women of child-bearing age who want to take Qsymia must test negative for pregnancy before starting the drug and are expected to use contraception and take a pregnancy test once a month while on the drug. Worries remain, though: in a Vivus trial, 34 women on Qsymia became pregnant even though they were instructed to use contraception. (The company says no birth defects occurred.) Patients’ heart rate should also be monitored regularly while taking Qsymia. People with recent or unstable heart disease or stroke are not recommended to take the drug because of the potential heart risks. Vivus has also agreed to continue monitoring Qsymia users for side effects after the drug reaches market; in particular, it will conduct a long-term cardiovascular outcomes trial to assess the effect of Qsymia on major events like heart attack and stroke. (MORE: 5 Things You Need to Know About Belviq) Which is better, Qsymia or Belviq? In clinical trials, people taking Qsymia lost more weight; those taking Belviq lost 5.8% of their body weight on average after a year. Based on the side effects profiles, however, some might consider Belviq to be less risky. “The majority of obese patients wanting to try drug therapy will end up seeing both drugs, regardless of which one they take first,” Simos Simeonidis, an analyst at Cowen & Company, told the New York Times, noting that he thought Qsymia would sell better.
Why is this approval important? Because more than a third of American adults are obese — a proportion that’s growing — and there aren’t many effective weight-loss treatments out there to reverse the trend. Aside from diet and exercise or weight-loss surgery, patients have few options. The FDA’s approval of Qsymia, after such a long diet-drug drought and despite the potential safety problems that plague weight-loss pills, marks a willingness to make new solutions available.
How do you pronounce the name of this pill? Qsymia is pronounced cue-SIM-ee-uh.

Green Coffee Bean Extract IS WORKING for some and NOT WORKING for others… WHY???

The TRUTH about why Green Coffee Bean Extract is working for some and NOT for others!!!

A few months ago hardly anyone was interested in green coffee, or supplements derived from green coffee bean extract. However all that has changed because green coffee supplements are now flying off the shelves. So what are the reasons for this, and what are the weight loss benefits (and side effects) of green coffee bean extract supplements? Why are some people losing weight like crazy and other still can’t seem to shed a pound? How can this be? Here is the skinny overview on that….

Well, we all probably know the two main reasons why everyone wants to buy green coffee bean extract right now. DUH, to LOSE WEIGHT! Here is what the human studies prove:

First of all there, was a major study conducted that clearly demonstrated that green coffee bean extract can help you lose weight. The study gathered a group of 16 overweight people and gave them green coffee supplements every day. Each of them stuck to a diet of around 2400 calories per day (well above the recommended average) and yet they still lost a lot of weight. In fact each person managed to lose an average of 17 pounds over the 22 week period. The study concluded that: “Taking multiple capsules of green coffee extract a day, while eating a low fat, healthful diet and exercising regularly, appears to be a safe, effective, inexpensive way to lose weight.” YEAH, so we are taking our GC capsule daily now so we should all be skinny by now, RIGHT??? Not always THAT EASY, follow me….

The second reason why many people want to buy green coffee supplements right now is because Dr. Oz discussed the results of this study on his TV show and actually conducted his own little experiment. He gave these supplements to two volunteers guests and one of them lost 2 pounds in less than one week, while the other lost 5 pounds in total without changing anything in their diet, so they claimed. So if we do the exact same thing that Dr. Oz recommends, then we should lose weight and be in our bikinis by summer, RIGHT??? I can’t wait! Can it be THAT EASY??? Read on…
So these are the two main reasons why green coffee bean extract is really SUCH a hot topic right now! It’s exciting and a new breakthrough! But, now for the skinny (or not so skinny)  TRUTH  about green coffee bean extract and the info you need to know so that it WILL WORK FOR YOU, TOO!!!! YEAH :O)

The good news is that this seems to be working for some people, LOTS OF PEOPLE!  But the bad news is that it is not working for everyone.


There are 3 main reasons that the product may not work for everyone.

# 1) The first reason is that you may have a fake product!

Yes, if you have been following my blog there have been many PLACEBOS that are surfacing. When people open the capsule and taste the product they are noticing that it does not look like the correct color that is should be (which is golden light beige).  Furthermore, upon tasting the product if should taste bitter. If it tastes like mocha it pretty much IS MOCHA. Might as well put it in your hot water to make cocoa and get some use out of it!  Also, if the brand is offering an 800mg dose  this is a red flag and  this is not recommended by physicians at Life Extension Foundation, engineers of a major patented green coffee product  (Dr. Oz is WRONG). So if they are offering the product at 800 mg is this product REAL? If so, this is cause for alarm!  The recommended dose is 400mg x 3 per day and there is a serious reason for that! If the product is REAL and you take this high of a dose, your blood glucose levels may drop to an unsafe level creating low sugar level, which in turn can make you feel tired, dizzy, and even cause seizures. This is called insulin shock. Even at the 400mg level it is advised that if you feel tired while taking it to eat a piece of fruit or natural juice. The reason this could happen is that the product is balancing out your glucose levels and the body may not be used to running at a normal, lower level. Headaches or fatigue could be a sign that your body is in this balancing stage, but consult with a doctor as soon as possible and discontinue green coffee bean extract until your levels can be tested with a blood monitor glucose test.

#2)The second reason that the product may not work, is that your liver is on overload due to toxic buildup from past and present:

The liver is a sensitive organ and cannot and will not eliminate fat if it is overstressed. Toxins, such as  pollutants, alcohol (in cosmetics, lotions, and spirits), household products, pesticides, are poisoning our bodies!  Over the counter drugs like Tylenol and other medications also cause liver impairment. Also, eating a diet rich in carbs and refined sugar creates a toxic body with too much acid on board, resulting in reduced liver function. So if you expect to drop to an eensie weensie polka dot bikini size while you are stuffing in the carbs, forget it. it just won’t happen realistically.  Diet is important factor in this equasion.  Balance your body with a low carb diet with TONS Of  alkaline drinks and foods, like cucumber water, “greens” and all those good “Dr. Oz recommended” power foods to boost your bodies metabolism!
For more product information on how to gently detox your liver for optimal function and weight loss contact beckylgould@gmail.com

 #3) The third reason may be due to hormonal imbalances

Male and females may have hormonal imbalance and this can hold you back from experiencing weight loss even while using a product such as green coffee bean extract.  As we age, or even in child bearing years, hormones flucuate. The bodies natural defense when it is experiencing hormonal imbalance is to “horde” fat to protect you! The body becomes “stubborn and grumpy” when it is feeling lopsided and unbalanced.  So, in order to shed the weight and utilize the benifits of green coffee products you must attempt to get yourself in state of total balance:  THINK> “National Gymnastic Hormonal Balance Beam Champion.” Get everything aligned so that you don’t fall off of the fat burning wagon!  If you suspect that you may have a problem with hormone balance, contact beckylgould@gmail.com and you will be emailed information on bio-identical hormone alternatives that will help to balance your system.

EVALUATION TIME:  So if you are having a hard time losing weight while using weight loss products if is time to evaluate yourself closely. You can get a liver function test and a complete male or female blood panel to determine your body and it’s state of balance.  I had the test done and found out I had a “fatty liver” ugh. Embarrassing? YES! Humbling? YES! Too much fine wine in my life? YES, let’s not go there…Too many toxic hair products? (did I say fomaldyhide- spell check please) Honesty is very humbling especially since we have all from time to time whooped it up a bit and caused harm to our bodies. But the good news is that the liver loves you and damage is reversable!!! I am SAVED…there IS A GOD and he/she wants me to be SKINNY :O)

If you do not have a medical care professional, contact beckylgould@gmail.com for the number to a free hotline with medical staff to help you.

Green Coffee Bean Extract is there to help you, not to do the entire fat job FOR you! It’s like cleaning before the cleaning lady gets there, so do the same with your body!  While taking the product, eat a diet low in carbs, high in fruits and veggies, and moderate protein. Move your body! Sing, dance, rock, and roll! Shock your kids and do something out of charactor for a change- break a leg! Attitude is EVERYTHING :O) Nurture and love your body by taking good care of it and it in return your body will shed unwanted weight and return to the place that it was intended….

Smile, laugh, and have a happy, healthy summer!

God bless-

Did you get the REAL Green Coffee Bean Extract or did you get COFFEE GROUNDS?

Will the REAL Green Coffee Bean Manufacturers PLEASE STAND UP???

HOW TO KNOW IF A COMPANY IS LEGITIMATE WITH LABELING AND MARKETING? I am so saddened when I  hear a personal story about how the green coffee bean extract is not working for them and how discouraged they are. Mainly, the reason for their failure is because they are either getting fake product, sub par product, or no product at all because it never arrived!  It is sad enough to be duped, but is is really sad to see people lose their trust in vitamins and supplements and lose their HOPE.  Originally, people were writing in everyday or so excited about most their recent purchase of “Green Coffee Bean Extract” only to find out later that the capsule was filled with coffee grounds similar to instant mocha. Yes, one gal wrote in to tell me that she suspected something fishy because she had actually gained a pound over the past weekend. So she opened up the capsule to taste it just to see what the flavoring was like. Knowing from her research that the organic raw coffee should taste “bitter,” she could not believe it when the powder was a sweet and chocolate flavor! Not only that, but the color was white and brown, just like ground coffee, chocolate, and sugar! Real green coffee extract products should be a beige color powder in a clear capsule!  No wonder she gained weight! (If you would like more information on this contact beckylgould@ymail.com )

Anyway, this is just one sad story and reason for everyone  to do their research before acting on emotion and making an impulsive internet purchase. We all need to work together to inform others when something appears to be wrong with a product. Use YELP to report negative experiences with products or service.  Good things happen to good companies, bad things happen to bad companies.  The truth always prevails.  End of story. If you would like more information on the ratings and reviews on green coffee bean extract contact me at beckylgould@ymail.com

Anyway, you can tell I am in a bummer mood to say the least. I write these blogs to try to help people make good choices and hopefully hear back success stories that I can blog about.  I am also in the advertising business so I understand marketing all too well. But one thing is for certain there is good marketing and bad marketing. If  a product manufacturer has a really good product that will HELP someone then that is fantastic! Sell it to everyone that can benifit from it and earn a decent profit! Right?

The worst part of this blog and my day writing this, is that I feel sad that I may dash your spirits with some ugly news. I feel obligated to get this out  because a huge percentage of people that write in to me  have been asking about the brand  that they have purchased and whether or not it is a good product??? Unfortunately, this recent report is a huge disappointment and I am sorry to be the deliverer of bad news. The company that MOST PEOPLE are buying the green coffee bean product from is a website called PURE_________ (hint hint). I cannot say  the name directly or I will be kicked off of wordpress, however, on their website is a green box that says “TRUST PILOT” . When you click the box it shows all of the 2,373 reviews about this company and they have literally pathetic comments! Yes, 2373 MAD CUSTOMERS and some have not even received their product. They do not answer the phone and they also apparently do not currently reside at the contact address.  They have a 2.1 rating on green coffee bean, yet they market so heavily on pay per click that you cannot miss them. So ALMOST every person that writes to me is purchasing this product. Since the site is getting rich on the sales, they can afford to pay google thousands of dollars to get their website to flash in front of you, waving their coffee product at the top of the internet pages shouting it’s praises!   Plus they are making false advertising claims stating that their product is PURE 100% Green Coffee Extract with NO fillers! This is just not true unless they are using coffee grounds,  chocolate, or hopefully not dog food!

You see, REAL green coffee extract needs 2 fillers. One acts as a binding ingredient so that the extract can be pressed effectively into a capsule formula. The other is a preservative so that the product will not go rancid and will hold a shelf life. Without fillers you would get a product that may make you sick or lose it’s organic properties that produce the results it was originally intended for. Fillers should be in an easy to dissolve, veggie based capsule. Never use a product that is in synthetic capsule because it most likely will not even dissolve in your system.  The undigested synthetic capsule is like litereally “dumping” the goods before they hit the system. This is not healthy and  is very hard on your intestines and bowels.

Ok, to sum it up: The bad news is that all products are not real and we also know that all companies are not ethical, but THE GOOD NEWS IS that there ARE legitimate and ethical companies out there selling the REAL GREEN COFFEE BEAN EXTRACT! The bottom line is pretty simple, “you get what you pay for”. This means that if you want a product that is superior then you need to make sure that the manufacturer has done some serious research and testing on it! To do human studies, to patent the formula, and to certify a product takes a huge amount money. So I guess if you want to risk taking a sub par product at a reduced price go ahead and not much waisted (or gained).   Remember that  good, quality  products go through enormous testing phases and that this process  includes paying high salaries to all of the  Mds, Phd’s, and Engineers to roll out the  process! So when considering  buying specialized products (not run of the mill such as vitamin C),it may pay off to spend a little more money to get the best quality product out there for optimal results. I finally made the decision after years of giving back to everyone else but myself, that it is time for ME… and I am worth it!  AND you are too :O)

Real product IS OUT THERE. If you would like a list of ratings on real green coffee bean extract there is an unbiased national data review that can be viewed. Contact me if you would like it sent to you at beckylgould@gmail.com  Also, if you question a product that you have purchased, take a picture of the powder, capsule, bottle, and label and send it to me. I will look into it in more detail.

AND “thank you” to all of you who are writing in to tell your honest stories.  I know how hard it is for everyone including myself to lose weight and I feel for everyone at a very deep level. Also thank you for allowing me to VENT by frustration with this blog :O) I am truly blessed to have friends that are on the same page!

Green Coffee Bean Extract….Finally, “the FACTS are HERE!”

Your Green Coffee Bean Extract Questions Answered:

If you have questions regarding this blog contact the author beckylgould@gmail.com

Q. What is pure green coffee bean extract?

A. Pure green coffee bean extract is a naturally occurring substance that is extracted from raw, unroasted coffee beans. It is a highly potent source of chlorogenic acid, which is the active substance that helps with weight loss.

Q. What is chlorogenic acid?

A. Chlorogenic acid is a polyphenolic compound that is found in abundance in raw coffee beans. It has proven to be effective as a weight loss supplement and was recommended on the Dr. Oz show.

Q. How does chlorogenic acid help me lose weight?

A. The presence of chlorogenic acid in the body triggers the liver to stop releasing glucose into the blood stream so that the body will burn stored fat to utilize the glucose content in its fat cells as energy. This process also increases the body’s metabolism to speed up fat loss.

Q. What if my liver is compromised or I have a fatty liver? Will the green coffee bean extract work the same?

A. If you have a compromised liver or fatty liver, we suggest that you detox prior to starting green coffee bean extract. Also, milk thistle, broccoli, and a multitude of other products have both been proven to help restore the liver to a healthier state. By taking a daily dose of Aloe Vera juice, this can decrease inflammation of the liver so that is able to optimally function. The healthier your liver, the better it will be able to promote weight loss with use of green coffee bean extract. A healthy diet with an abundance of fruits, vegetables, and fiber is recommended as well as ongoing detoxing. For more information on products that promote healthy liver function contact beckylgould@gmail.com

Q. Can you  explain in more detail how the green coffee bean extract burns fat?

A. . When chlorogenic acid is present in the body, the liver stops producing glycogen, which is the enzyme that is responsible for releasing glucose into the blood. Glucose is normally used by the body to produce energy; however, when the body doesn’t have a stable amount of glucose in the blood it begins to convert stored fat into usable energy.

Q. Are there any side effects of pure green coffee bean extract?

A. There have been no reports of any adverse side effects of pure green coffee extract. However, anyone that has sensitivity to caffeine may experience mild jitters or an increased energy surge.

Q. Is green coffee bean extract a type of drug or prescription medicine?

A. No. Green coffee bean extract is not a drug or medication. It is purely a dietary supplement that does not require a prescription.

Q. Can I just drink normal coffee instead of green coffee to get the same results?

A. No, roasted coffee loses its chlorogenic ability because of the high temperatures used. Therefore, it is very important to know that the product you purchase has been extracted correctly and still is in the raw form. There are products on the market that are mimicking green coffee, yet are actually ground roasted coffee beans. For a national report from a research company that reviews products for overall health and quality, contact beckylgould@gmail.com and you will be provided a list of all manufactures of green coffee extract. Products are rated on a scale from 1-10 by a unbiased, honest national reveiw board.

Green Coffee Extract Ingredients Questions:

Q. Is there any caffeine in pure green coffee bean extract?

A. Yes. Caffeine is a naturally occurring substance in green coffee beans. However, the chlorogenic acid extraction process has eliminated most of the caffeine content. Each capsule contains roughly the same amount of caffeine as 1/8 cup of coffee. There are products on the market that do not have caffeine in them; however, we recommend the product that is patented and DOES contain a small amount of caffeine for optimal weight loss. If you have problems with caffeine, refer to beckylgould@gmail.com for a list of non-caffeinated options.

Questions About Taking Pure Green Coffee Bean Extract:

Q. What forms does green coffee extract come in?

A. Green coffee extract comes in both tablet form and capsule form. We recommend a veggetable capsule so that it easily absorbs in the intestines. Other capsules remain undigested and often times are eliminated without ever being absorbed. Make sure that the product you purchase is from a legitamate manufacture with a healthy capsule. For more information on a patented green coffee product contact beckylgould@gmail.com

Q. How do I know if I am getting a real pure green coffee product?

A. First of all, you need to make sure that you are using a reputable source for purchasing the green coffee product so that you get one with high chlorogenic percentage of extract. The capsule should be clear, with very light brown or beige color of powder. Even though the product is called “green” the actual powder is beige- brown. You need a high concentraction of extract but realize that  most ALL products have to have some filler added to make sure that the product does not go bad or spoil. Also, some fillers are used as a binding ingredient to be able to pack the powder effectively into the capsule. Fillers have a very necessary purpose, and for the most part, there are no products on the market that can contain 100% of the active ingredient unless they are some sort of oil extracted in a pure form. In this case the product would have a short shelf like and be so expensive that many could not afford it. So if someone claims they have PURE green coffee, this is a marketing tactic. Good product should contain at least 100mg within the total capsule of raw green coffee bean extract.

For a national report from a research company that reviews products for overall health and quality, contact beckylgould@gmail.com and you will be provided a list of all manufactures of green coffee extract. Products are rated on a scale from 1-10 by a unbiased, honest national reveiw board

Q. How often do I need to take green coffee extract?

A. We recommend a starting dosage of approximately 400 mg of green coffee extract every day, three times per a day prior to meals. You may increase the dosage slowly if you are not experiencing any adverse effects. It is important that you know check with your doctor for adverse drug interactions. For a list of drug interactions with green coffee extract contact beckylgould@gmail.com

Q. When is the best time of day to take green coffee extract?

A. It is recommended that you make it a part of your daily routine by taking it prior to meals.

Q. Will I notice immediate results when I take green coffee bean extract?

A. Results vary from person to person depending on diet, exercise, and general overall health. To get the optimal results we recommend that you start the product after a 1-3 day detox program. It is also helpful to make sure that your hormonal balance is regulated to optimize weight loss.

Q. What if my hormones are not balanced?

A. When the hormones are not balanced, there is a general response from the body that triggers a defense mechanism which can often result in the body holding on to fat. Weight loss still may be accomplished by taking green coffee bean extract, however, the results may be slower than if the body had balanced hormones. Also, additional weight loss products can be added, such as raspberry ketone or 7 keto to aid the process. Always check with your doctor before adding additional products or contact beckylgould@gmail.com for a list of drug intereractions with green coffee bean extract.

Q. How to I balance my hormones?

A. By getting a complete female or male blood test panel, this will show if there is a hormonal imbalance. Then seeking out natural hormone replacement therapy is often recommended. This subject is controversial; however, more and more people are experiencing good results with bio-identical hormone replacement and noticing that while being treated,  their bodies are returning to a more youthful state of wellbeing plus weight loss is easier. For articles regarding bio-identical hormone replacement contact beckylgould@gmail.com

Q. What happens if I stop taking green coffee extract for a few days?

A. Pure green coffee bean extract is most effective when taken daily. If you miss a day, there’s no need to take extra capsules to make up for the capsules you missed. Just start your routine again the next day and try to stay on track for the best results.

Q. Can I take extra green coffee bean extract capsules to increase weight loss?

A. We recommend that you follow the usage instructions and only take three 400 mg capsules every day. You can increase the dose thereafter if you are not experiencing any side effects. The maximum recommended dosage is 1000 mg x 3, but we recommend that you talk to your doctor prior to increasing the dosage.

Q. Can I take green coffee extract with my other vitamins and supplements?

A. Yes. Pure green coffee bean extract can be taken with other vitamins and/or supplements.

Q. Can I take green coffee bean extract with my prescription medications?

A. Before adding green coffee extract to your diet, it is recommended to consult your healthcare professional if you have any medical conditions that require you to take prescription medications.

Q. How old do you have to be to take green coffee bean extract?

A. We only recommend green coffee bean extract to adults 18 years or older.

Q. Can my child take green coffee extract?

A. No. We recommend that you do not give green coffee extract to children that are 17 years of age or younger.

Q. Where do I store green coffee bean extract?

A. To maximize the effectiveness of pure green coffee bean extract, we recommend that you store it in its original bottle at or below room temperature (24 C / 75 F). We recommend that you do not store green coffee extract in any other type of packaging or pill containers.

Q. Can I take green coffee extract if I am pregnant, breastfeeding, or trying to become pregnant?

A. Although pure green coffee extract has not been formally studied in pregnant women, breastfeeding women, or women trying to become pregnant, we recommend that you consult a healthcare professional to find out if green coffee extract is the right choice for you during this time.

Is your LIVER making you FAT?? Facts to SCARE you Skinny!

Is your LIVER holding you back from losing weight?

After researching  “the liver” and the role that it plays with weight loss, I was astounded and  wanted to share this information with you. I was stunned at just how important this organ is for good metabolism and ultimate “thinness”.  I was recently diognosed with having a slightly “fatty liver” and that really scared me!  So here is some information really worth reading and what we can do about it. Let’s take charge of our life events and not have events take charge of US!!! Read on to win the battle of the “liver roll” !!!

  • THE LIVER IS A FAT BURNING MANIAC: The liver is the major fat burning organ in the body and regulates fat metabolism by a complicated set of biochemical pathways. The liver can also pump excessive fat out of the body through the bile into the small intestines. If the diet is high in fiber, this unwanted fat will be carried out of the body via the bowel actions. Thus the liver is a remarkable machine for keeping weight under control, being both a fat burning organ and a fat pumping organ. Sounds great, right? Well, only if it is working to perfection!
  • A STONG LIVER CIRCULATES BILE : If the diet is low in fiber, some of the fats (especially cholesterol) and toxins that have been pumped by the liver into the gut through the bile will recirculate back to the liver.  It is the livers job to circulate and then re-circulates bile acids back into the small intestines  six to eight times a day. If this recirculated fluid is high in fat and/or toxins, this will contribute to excessive weight.   A high fiber diet will reduce the recirculation of fat and toxins from the gut back to the liver. This is vitally important for those with excessive weight, toxicity problems, and high cholesterol. So by eatting of plenty of raw fruits and vegetables as well as ground-up raw seeds will increase both soluble and insoluble fiber in the gut, and reduce recirculation of unwanted fat and toxins. If the liver filter is damaged by toxins or clogged up with excessive waste material it will be less able to remove small fat globules circulating in the blood stream. This will cause excessive fat to build up in the blood vessel walls and then may then gradually build up in many other parts of the body, including other organs, and in fatty deposits under the skin. Thus you may develop cellulite in the buttocks, thighs, arms and abdominal wall.  If the liver is dysfunctional, it will not manufacture adequate amounts of the good cholesterol (HDL), which travels out of the liver to scavenge the unhealthy cholesterol (LDL) from the blood vessel walls.
  • A SIGN OF A COMPROMISED LIVER IS  “LIVER ROLL”: If the liver filter is healthy, it allows dietary cholesterol to be shunted into the liver for metabolism or excretion through the bile. A healthy liver filter is essential to properly regulate blood cholesterol levels.If the liver does not regulate fat metabolism efficiently, weight gain tends to occur around the abdominal area and a “pot belly” will develop.  Another sign can be a roll of fat around the upper abdomen, which I affectionately call the “liver roll.” This is often a sign of a fatty liver. It can be almost impossible to lose this abdominal fat until the liver function is improved. Once this is done the liver will start burning fat efficiently again and the weight comes off gradually and without too much effort from you. It is not necessary to make yourself miserable by following a low fat, low calorie diet. What is effective in the long term is to eat the correct foods and nutrients for the liver to improve its fat burning function.
  • WEIGHT GAIN FROM A FATTY LIVER? Many people with excess fat in the abdominal area have a “fatty liver” and do not even know it. In this condition the liver has stopped burning fat and has turned into a fat storing organ! It becomes enlarged and swollen with greasy deposits of fatty tissue. Those with a fatty liver will not be able to lose weight unless they first improve liver function, with a good Liver Cleansing Diet and a good liver tonic. If you have a fatty liver it is vital to be patient, as it can take between 3 and 12 months, depending upon the amount of fat deposited in the liver, to remove the excess fat from the liver. After this accumulated liver fat has been removed, weight loss will occur easily. If you have a very severe case of fatty liver it can take several years to lose all of the excessive weight.   However, this is very successful in the long term and provides the best chance of restoring your figure and your health. Fatty liver is common and doctors often tell their patients with this problem not to worry too much because it is not serious. I disagree with this, because if you have a fatty liver, your chances of high cholesterol, cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes are significantly higher. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon to find a fatty liver in adolescents who consume a diet high in processed foods and soda pop.
  •   WRONG HORMONES OR TOXINS STRESS THE LIVER: If you overload the liver with the wrong type of hormone replacement therapy, drugs or toxins, the liver’s biochemical pathways will have less energy reserves left over to perform their function of fat metabolism. Thus these things can lead to weight gain. For menopausal women with a weight problem, the best type of hormone replacement therapy is that which bypasses the liver, namely hormone patches, creams or buccal lozenges. For more information regarding liver cleanses contact beckylgould@gmail.com
  • WHAT TO DO IF YOU SUSPECT A FATTY LIVER? Chances are if you are experiencing a comprimised or “fatty” liver, you will not be able to lose weight. The first step is to see a doctor to check your liver function. The next step is to ensure that your diet has a hearty dose of fruits, vegetables, and fiber in it. Milk thistle has been proven to be very good at reversing liver damage. Also, there are liver cleanses that can be helpful. It is best to elimate any processed foods that may contain toxins in them. Eat organic whenever possible and eat “raw foods” instead of processed foods. Start to look at all of your labels for toxins even with cleasing household products, makeup and lotions, and even hair care products. Eliminate or “buy green” and stop overloading your liver with products that have toxic ingredients. The sooner you start to treat your liver with respect, the quicker your body will start to shed the unwanted pounds. Most importantly, cut back on alchohol as this could be the culprit to your liver roll! For more information about quality milk thistle products or liver cleanses contact beckylgould@gmail.com
  • The great news is that your liver is very receptive and adaptable to change. Be nice to your liver and your liver will product a new “thiner” YOU!

Green Coffee Bean Extract Melts away the POUNDS!!! New Miracle Pill?

Green Coffee Bean Extract?  Miracle Weight Loss Pill or is this HYPE?

Ready everyone??? Dr Oz has me buzzing around like a happy little kitten grinning from ear to ear in anticipation of receiving my Green Coffee Bean Extract.  I purchased high end product from a very respected source so I am praying that it works and will let you know. The facts are in that this may be even better then the raspberry ketones or 7 keto! Wow, am I  SOOOO excited now!!!  I am going to get out my “size too small skinny jeans” that I have packed away in high hopes of wearing them soon! Here is the scoop….

If you are overweight there is a magic bean that melts away unwanted fat and Dr. Oz says it’s a miracle pill to burn fat fast! This could be the magic bullet for weight loss without a prescription. Two of Dr. Oz viewers (Kendra lost 2 pounds in five days and Omayra lost 6 pounds in 5 days) took this green bean coffee extract and lost weight in 5 days!!! Dr. Lindsey Duncan joined Dr. Oz in this segment of the show. Dr. Duncan is a naturopathic Doctor and certified nutritionist and said he doesn’t usually recommend weight loss supplements but this one has him really excited. The news is very promising, especially in the western world where diabetes is such a health problem and threatening lives of so many!

He went on to say the weight loss community has been buzzing about this green coffee extract because when you take this you don’t need to exercise or diet to lose the weight. People consumed 2400 calories a day while taking green coffee bean extract capsules and lost over 10% of their total weight. They also lost 16% of their total body fat and lost about 17 pounds with no side effects from the green coffee bean extract. This is amazing! These participants took the green coffee bean extract for 12 weeks and accomplished this weight loss without any struggle whatsoever. For more information about a national research group that rates green coffee bean extract with unbiased ratings and reviews contact beckylgould@gmail.com

Miracle To Burn Fat Fast??? Whenever Dr. Oz talks about a new weight loss pill or any natural supplement the stores are swamped and sold out in a day.  Dr. Lindsey told Dr. Oz and everyone to make sure that its GOOD QUALITY green coffee beans extract and make sure it doesn’t have too many additives and fillers. Make SURE that someone did not just go and grid up some coffee beans and throw them into a capsule to call it “ green coffee bean”. Roasted coffee will not have the same effect! Some fillers are necessary for allowing the raw product to bind nicely into a capsule. Fillers are also important because they may act as a preservative, while otherwise the product would spoil or mold and not be safe for consumption. For more information and an unbiased report from a national research company that studied green coffee bean extract manufacturers  contact beckylgould@gmail.com

Dr. Oz talked about green coffee bean extract on a show before with Bryce Wylde about natural remedies. Headlines are everywhere since studies have been done:

  • The Green Coffee Bean: A Miracle Weight-Loss Drug?
  • Green Coffee Beans May Aid Weight Loss
  • Green-Coffee-Bean Extract Shows Potential For Weight Loss
  • Green Coffee Beans Tied To Weight Loss

Now after today headlines will read “Dr. Oz New Weight Loss Pill Green Coffee Bean Extract”. Coffee beans in its rawest form may hold the secret to weight loss that you have been waiting for. But not all green coffee products are considered equal, especially since everyone is wanting it and demand makes the greedy vitamin companies produce placebo products. Unfortunately it is true that the best marketing tool is to “prey on the demands of the vulnerable”. So before you go and purchase a product, do your research. There are studies on green coffee products with unbiased reveiws that rate the products. Most GOOD products will be on back order after this show featured because until Dr. Oz featured it, it went unnoticed.  Now the product is selling like wildfire so expect to “wait” for a good one. Manufactures are on a rampage and cannot keep up with demand. For a copy of the factual national product review where 100s of manufacturers were rated for quality contact beckylgould@gmail.com

The key to weight loss with Green Coffee Bean capsules is in the potent, natural compound called Chlorogenic Acid. The Chlorogenic Acid works by slowing down the release of glucose into the body after meals while at the same time boosting metabolism. The Chlorogenic Acid is only present in the raw Green Coffee Bean, and not in the aromatic roasted familiar version of brown coffee. That’s because the Chlorogenic Acid is removed during the roasting process (which is done at over 400 degrees Fahrenheit) as the acid is extremely bitter.

The daily dose of Green Coffee Bean contains only about 15 – 25 mg of naturally-occurring caffeine whereas your average cup of coffee contains up to 200 mg. In fact, the green coffee bean has actually shown in some studies to help lower blood pressure – while still boosting metabolism.

If you think can get the same effects from the coffee you drink with breakfast in the morning the answer is NO. Green coffee beans are unroasted, have little aroma and are extremely bitter – because they contain over 50% chlorogenic acid.(bitter is better)

Because the green coffee bean is so bitter, it is recommended taking green coffee in capsule form. It is suggested we try finding 400 mg green coffee bean capsules – make sure it they are made using the correct extracting methods. Only buy from a reputable source. Take 1-2 green coffee bean extract capsules (400 mgs is suggested) about 30 minutes before meals; I recommend taking them two or three times per day with a full glass of water for the best results. And remember that combining green coffee bean with a healthy diet and exercise can improve your results! Blog readers are also writing in to me that when combined with Raspberry Ketone or 7 Keto they are experiencing even better results! But be careful about interactions. For a detailed report of interactions with green coffee extract contact me for a detailed report at beckylgould@gmail.com

Now DON’T just go and get this product from anyone.. Can you imagine how many smirking vitamin dealers are just putting normal coffee into capsules and making a fortune off of naive people??? They should call this tactic “Foldgers in a CAP”! Promise to support only legitimate companies that certify their products. I have access to a huge data base research company that rates legitimate natural medicine companies on a scale from 1-10 on the quality and effectiveness on all products. If you are interested in receiving this information, just email me at beckylgould@gmail.com and I will send you the data.

Keep me posted on your results, too so that I can advise others if this product really works!

Happy Slimming Ladies and Gents!
