Lose Water Weight With These New Liquids

Healthy moms Michelle Williams and Jennifer Lopez make sure to hydrate…

* Nutrition Review Fest of the Week:

Can the liquids you drink really help you lose weight? I am not a big fan of wild nutritional claims or crazy diet concepts, but wanted to test out these latest health driven products (you’ll be surprised with the results)…

* If You Need an Alternative To Sports Drinks: Phenom Coconut Water

Sports drinks might claim to improve your performance, rehydrate your body and keep you fit… but did you know they can also make you gain weight? The majority of sports drinks around are full of sugar, calories and synthetic ingredients, which (although I love the way they taste) are never good for you. Unless you’re burning crazy amounts of calories because you’re training for the Olympics, a big game (or in my case back in the day) a huge dance performance, every day citizens simply don’t need the electrolyte boosting, yet calorie laden benefits of sports drinks. Although of course water is always the best option, try turning to Phenom Water for a change of pace or when you really need a boost. Coconut water is a great way to pump up electrolytes, soothe muscles with natural potassium, and do all without tons of sugar and additives. Best of all, it’s only 45 calories per serving: just enough to keep you pushing through your next workout!

* If You Want To Slim Down Fast: Bios Life Slim

Diet drinks creep me out. They normally involve some sort of non-FDA-approved ingredient (that causes your hands to shake and your heart to race), and never improve weight loss for the long term. When I first heard about Slim drinks, I admit that I thought they were just another “diet drink” (and said “pooh-pooh” in the manner of Madeline). Then I read the ingredients and realized that Slim powder is basically a liquid fiber to help your digestive track, without sending your intestines into a tailspin. The Slim drink is taken 2 -3 times per day, 10 to 15 minutes per meals, and helps create a natural feeling of fullness in the stomach with the use of blood sugar stabilizing ingredients and vegetarian fiber. It is gluten-free for those who don’t have an aversion to oats (in my case, oats are off limits with celiac disease), but has a large dose of vitamins like Vitamin B12, Zinc and Folic Acid. 1 serving is only 15 calories, and goes a long way in helping you eat less while digesting foods faster…. got to love that!

* If You Need New Ways To Stay Active With Your Family: KidsBowlFree.com

I originally thought that “kids bowl” meant some sort of cool new children’s utensil, perfect for this nutritional themed post. But I was pleasantly surprised to find that KidsBowlFree.com is actually the perfect way to get your family active this summer. Bowling is the ideal way to get on your feet, step away from the TV, without having to sweat bullets in the hot June sun. If you sign your family up for a participating bowling alley near you, you can print off coupons that let your children bowl free. Nothing better than saving money and staying healthy, right?

  1. Bailey,
    Thank you so much for the blog about Bios Life Slim. I was skeptical at first myself but once I learned and met several physicians who are using the product and recommending it to their patients and have seen some of the lab results I was sold. It not only has helped me lose 10 lbs, I am looking more toned as it not only helps you lose weight but also fat, I don’t have near as much dimpling. I am post-menopausal and have lost my back fat and torso roll. I just bought a two piece and not a tankini yesterday to wear on our boat. I also suffer with IBS symptoms and as long as I use the product and drink enough water I have no symptoms. I am also gluten sensitive so this is perfect for me. It has already raised my good cholesterol (HDL) from 44 to 52. I have been trying for years to get it up. My blood glucose is only 55 (fasting) and my A1C is only 5.0. My numbers aren’t high for LDL and total cholesterol nor triglycerides but they have also decreased. I don’t suffer with blood sugar dips throughout the day and I have energy. I suffer with Fibromyalgia and I have only had one flareup in 4 months. I am no longer suffering with pain nor chronic fatigue. I want to exercise and enjoy it now. I don’t crave sugary snacks anymore either. I can’t say enough about this product. It is life saving for many of my dear friends and family already. Thanks again for your support. Christine

    Hey Bailey! Just wanted to put in a quick plug for Kids Bowl Free – we signed up (a while ago) and love it! Even though Ella is only 3 she LOVES to bowl, and it is a super fun family activity that we’ve been doing for a while – this winter we did Friday night bowling nights, and once we saw this for the summer, we figured it would be a great thing during those super hot days. I like it because it is indeed physically active, and also very INteractive – a great way to get our guys to really ‘play’ 🙂 – he loves teaching her and helping her – plus my daughter is the shoe girl, and the first time she was given bowling shoes to put on, you would’ve thought she was given glass slippers! 🙂 Glad you put Kids Bowl Free on your website and hope others will take advantage!
