Melt The Excess FAT And FLUSH Pounds of Toxins With This 3 Juice Colon Cleanse

Do you have troubles sleeping and wake up in the middle of the night?
It makes you feel awful if it occurs night after night and also, it is not good for you.
Fortunately, there are three ingredients you can use to prepare this “magic mixture” and set your way to a good night’s sleep.

SWALLOW THIS, FALL ASLEEP ALMOST INSTANTLY, STAY ASLEEP, AND WAKE UP REFRESHED

Needed ingredients:
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
  • ¼ teaspoon of raw honey
  • 1/8 teaspoon of sea salt
These three ingredients help your body be sustained throughout the night. The mixture also lowers the impact of spikes in stress hormones or cortisol, which can make you wake up in the middle of the night.


How to prepare and use the mixture?
You need to take the three ingredients before going to bed.
1st option:
Mix the coconut oil and raw honey in a bowl and add some sea salt in it. Then mix all ingredients. Take the mixture with a spoon and swallow. Then, chase with water.
2nd option:
Take the coconut oil, raw honey separately and chase with water. Then, you can add the sea salt in a small cup of water and drink it.
If you wake up in the middle of the night, take the mixture again and you will fall back asleep easier, in around half an hour or less.
Why this mixture helps?
Coconut’s fat gives energy to your body throughout the night. Consuming it before going to bed prevents waking up hungry. Also, it prevents increasing the blood sugar, which often leads to sleeping problems.
Honey doesn’t increase your blood sugar, but helps you sleep better. It offers an adequate amount of storage of liver glycogen for the brain. When there isn’t enough liver glycogen to provide energy for the brain, the adrenal glands drain more stress hormones, adrenaline and cortisol. High amounts of these stress hormones can lead to problematic sleeping.
Salt is another helpful ingredient before heading to bed because it aids in lowering the stress hormones as well. This ingredient helps the production of energy, so your body’s energy will be sustained during the night. Adequate sodium in the blood reduces the drain of adrenaline or cortisol.

Amazing Tip For Long Lashes – DIY

I’ll be the first to admit it. I’m lazy. There are days when I’m so motivated to eat healthy and workout. But to be totally honest, most days I just don’t feel like doing anything at all. That’s why I love lazy girl hacks! I do some of these things all the time and some of them only when I notice my pants are getting snug (yeah, I know I should do them before I get to that point lol). I told you I was lazy.


11 Lazy Girl Hacks That Will Help You Lose Weight Fast


 It’s okay if you don’t do all of these things 100%. Just do what you can. Have a lot of weight to lose and feel like you never will because you don’t have the determination? I promise you can put these simple hacks into action. Will you lose 50 pounds overnight? No. But three months from now you can either look in the mirror and see you weigh the same (or have put on more weight) or you can lose 20-30 pounds from just making these small adjustments to your life.




1.Don’t drink your calories



The average American drinks 400 calories a day. That’s a ton of empty calories that are making us fat! Think of it like this next time you reach for a sugar filled drink. If you drink water instead (which has zero calories btw) you can feel better about eating some sweets later! You can also add some fruit to your water to add some flavor.

2.Avoid packaged & fast food



Processed food is usually loaded with calories and is the biggest reasons why obesity is an epidemic in America. It’s just so convenient! If you’re stopping by McDonald’s every day on your lunch break, try packing your lunch instead. The pounds will melt away and you will also see a hefty increase in your finances. Double win.

3.Use a water bottle tracker



And carry it with you everywhere! Yes, drinking water is hard to do at first. But guess what? Your body will start to crave it after about a week. So water bottle trackers are great especially when you’re first starting out.

4.Always have tortillas, lean meat, and veggies on hand



I heard this somewhere a while back and thought it was the greatest idea ever! Cook some meat to have prepped for a couple of days and you can store it your fridge. So you can just throw the meat and veggies in a skillet. It’s so quick and easy. Plus lean meats and veggies are great for helping you lose weight. I like to use the tortillas from Walmart that are high protein, low carb, and only 50 calories each.

5.Use small bowls and plates



Portion control is so important! It’s so easy to over eat. That’s why using smaller containers is so helpful. When you use a big plate, you naturally want to fill it up but that is certainly not doing you any favors. Trick your mind into thinking your eating more. Also, try slowing down a bit when you eat. It takes a while for your brain to realize it’s full.


6.Prep meals ahead



Prepping your meals ahead of time can seem like a lot of work but think of it this way. You actually only need to cook once every four days, rather than daily. Get some containers and your meals will stay good in the fridge for at least four days (some people push it farther). It’s easy to just go out and grab some fast food when we get hungry so these are perfect for just sticking in the microwave real quick.

7.Do a short workout, don’t overwhelm yourself



We all know the endless benefits we can experience from getting daily exercise, but we still struggle to find the time (or motivation) to actually get to it sometimes. Short workouts are perfect for when you’re new to working out or when you’re just feeling lazy. It’s better to take baby steps than no steps at all. 

8.Limit your sitting time



We sit in the car, when we’re watching TV, playing on the computer, eating, the list goes on. Just being mindful about how often we’re sitting can help us to lose weight. Well, that and doing something about it. Taking breaks during commercials to do some squats or sit ups will do wonders for helping you shed those unwanted pounds.

9.Grab and go snacks



Get two decent sized rectangle containers and fill them with healthy snacks. You can put one in the fridge and one in your pantry. Cheese sticks, beef jerky, nut mixes, and fruits/veggies (dried is good too) are some great options. It’s also really good to always keep some of these with you all the time so you don’t have a freak out session and stop at the gas station for a candy bar.
I don’t know about you but when I get hungry I want really unhealthy stuff for some reason. Having snacks with me keeps me from getting too hungry and making bad choices.

10.Chug a 8 oz. glass of water before every meal



This was something I learned while I was in the military. The reason behind it was to keep the troops hydrated, not to lose weight but drinking water before you eat fills you up. Water helps you to lose weight and so does eating less. Perfect combination don’t you think?

11. Don’t be too hard on yourself

I think this is where most of us fail. We have bad days and mess up, then we feel like failures and this causes us to actually fail. Remember, some progress is better than no progress at all. Just start small and work your way up. Don’t feel like you have to do everything on this list right now. Get some grab and go snacks this week and next week start prepping meals.
Whatever it takes. If you have the motivation to do everything, then by all means, go for it. But don’t get down on yourself if you skip your daily workout or drink a soda.


11 Lazy Girl Hacks That Will Help You Lose Weight Fast


The Biggest Loser is one of the most popular reality shows on television, and the weight loss transformations are what has viewers turning season after season.

 With so many people trying to lose weight, it’s no surprise that viewers of the show might wonder “How exactly do they lose weight so fast!”. It’s obvious to see that exercise plays a huge part of losing weight on the show. But with exercise there is only so many calories you can burn in a single day or week. So there also has to be another source of weight loss. Again diet plays an important role in weight loss, and the Biggest Loser contestants have great nutritional advice as well. But there is something the producers have been keeping under wraps in a serious way.

A former finalist of the show who requests to stay anonymous said that the contestants were drinking a proprietary detox drink recipe at nearly every meal. The contestant was quoted as saying “They had us drinking the stuff constantly…..we’d get pretty sick of it since it’s practically all we’d drink….But I swear by that stuff I wouldn’t have come even close without drinking it” the contestant went on to describe how taking a break from the drink almost got them kicked off the show. “One week early on in the show I decided to take a break from the drink because I was just plain tired of it you know? My trainer was pretty upset about it and the producers told me that I really should be drinking it….I didn’t follow the instructions and when I weighed in that week I had my lowest weigh in yet. I wasn’t working out any less hard and nothing changed in my diet other than this drink….I was a believer after that.




I sucked it up and no matter how tired of it I was I kept drinking it all the way until the finale”. Now viewers of the show most certainly would want to know what this drink is and why it hasn’t been shared on the show yet. Well sources say that producers have been very protective of the recipe. Even trainer Jillian Michaels was banned from ever sharing this recipe after she left the show. Producers were so afraid that another weight loss show would utilize the drink that it became one of the Biggest Losers Biggest Secrets. It wasn’t until recently when our unnamed contestant shared the secret recipe with us. “I thought it was important people know one of the biggest secrets to my weight loss…I hope I don’t get in trouble with the shows producers but this is the drink recipe”

“You brew one cup of green tea, the better quality of green tea the better. Make sure you brew the green tea as strong as you can. The drinks we used to make started off with the darkest tea drink you can get. Then you add in 1 tablespoon of cranberry juice, the sugar free kind. Mix the juice in and it will get sort of a dark brown color to it. Then add one tea spoon of powdered cinnamon, and mix it into the drink. Add a small pinch of cayenne pepper, I would try to put as much as tolerable. Then squeeze a half of a fresh lemon into the drink. They always stressed that we use fresh lemons rather than pre-juiced. We would either drink this hot or refrigerate the drink and have it cold”

The secret Biggest Loser Finalist suggests that the viewers have the drink three times per day with each meal if possible or start slower and slowly incorporate it into more meals as you get used to it.

The Biggest Loser's secret weight loss drink revealed

BONUS: Egg White & Lemon Mask

Contrary to popular belief, whiteheads and blackheads are a form of acne. Making things very simple, acne may be divided into two categories: pimples & cysts and whiteheads & blackheads. Blackheads and whiteheads, known as comedones, aren’t of course as blatant symptoms of acne as pimples or cysts but certainly need to be addressed. They also can be more numerous on the face and shoulders.
Acne is not only the most prevailing skin problem, but it also affects people of all ages, both genders and all ethnicities. Over 85% of teens and young adults, and 35% to 40% of adults suffer from this condition. Actually, during the last ten years, the average age of an acne sufferer increased from 20.5 to 26.5 years old.
Acne results from inflammation caused by too much skin oil (sebum) clogging the skin pores. More specifically, the sebaceous glands and dead skin cells known as corneocytes build up in the pores, and because the sebaceous material contains a lot of P. acnes bacteria, the surrounding skin now gets infected creating a red bump known as a typical pimple. The medical term for this red bump is an inflammatory papule.
Blackheads, also known as open comedones, are hair follicles that have a wider than normal opening. They are filled with plugs of sebum and dead skin cells and have undergone a chemical reaction resulting in the oxidation of melanin. This gives the substance in the follicle the typical black color.
Whiteheads, known as closed comedones, are follicles that are filled with the sebum but have only a microscopic opening to the skin surface. Since the air cannot reach the follicle, the material is not oxidized, and remains white.
How to Make Your Whiteheads and Blackheads Disappear

How to Care for Blackheads and Whiteheads


The keys to caring for acne are persistence and patience. There is no overnight cure for acne, including blackheads and whiteheads. Using a treatment that will  prevent acne from forming is the only real way to get rid of these types of skin problems. This process can only happen from the inside out, with possible help from some topical cleaning agents that can help control bacteria and remove excess dead skin cells that in consequence, if used regularly, may help improve follicle health. Beware of cleaning products that claim that they treat acne; they may ONLY help to diminish the symptoms. Some of these cleaning products can be used in conjunction with, but not instead of, a  treatment that actually removes the causes of acne.



Treating and preventing acne is the only real way of treating acne long term since it is focused on helping the body to regulate secretion of the sebaceous glands to produce less sebum. To further improve the results, such a  treatment should be accompanied by  good skincare practices that limit the inflammation resulting from mixing sebum, dead skin cells and bacteria.
Acne is not caused by eating certain foods or by “dirty” skin, so even though proper skin hygiene and living a healthy lifestyle may be helpful, they don’t treat acne. To the contrary, excessive scrubbing does not help, and can even make the skin more irritated and inflamed by creating abrasions that further invite bacteria or just simply provoke the skin to protect itself by producing more skin oil.
Skincare Regimen for Blackheads and Whiteheads


The best cleaning routine for comedones (blackheads and whiteheads) includes twice-a-day cleansing with a mild, non comedogenic cleanser, regular use of chamomile astringent, occasional use of witch hazel to dab on the effected areas and  application of skin masks to aid in the removal of excess sebum and dead skin cells that contribute to the buildup of oil in the follicles.

WARNING!
Frequently used methods of blackhead removal include squeezing with fingers and the use of a metal extractor or suction. While these methods may be successful at removing the blockages, they also may cause scarring and permanent damage of capillary blood vessels (small blood vessels that “ feed” the skin with blood, nutrients and oxygen), and skin tissue damage that, over time, can deplete the skin of natural oils and speed up the skin aging process. Additionally, many facial cleansers and scrubs (especially those that include fatty or oily substances or utilize beads, crystals, parts of grated nuts or other cleansing and/or exfoliating agents) may actually cause more damage by depositing clogging agents onto the skin as well as making the skin more susceptible to bacterial infection through unwanted abrasion.

Egg White & Lemon Mask
Lemon juice is a powerful ingredient in eliminating oil and bacteria, clearing away blackheads, tightening pores and even lightening sun and hyperpigmentation spots. Egg whites brighten and tighten the skin making it feel lifted, so your pores will be smaller after this mask. Egg whites also aid in clearing up old breakouts. This mask should be applied after you’ve cleaned your face, and should not be used if you’ve already applied a mask the same day.
Ingredients
1 egg white (separate the yolk and the white completely)
1 teaspoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice (organic if possible)

Use a small bowl, and thick cosmetic brush made of natural hair (no plastic brushes please!). For better application, choose a flat and broad bristle. Wash the brush before use. Clean after using with hot water only (no soap).
Instructions
Using an eggbeater or fork, mix the egg white and lemon juice well into a smooth consistency in the bowl.

Apply on a clean face with a brush, covering your entire face; avoid contact with eyes and eyelids. If the mask gets into your eye, rinse well with warm water immediately.
You may apply two layers of the mix if you have enough of it.
Relax for 20-25 minutes.

You will know that the mask is ready to remove when you feel it is stiff and dry on your face. Peel the mask from your face with your fingers.
Finish with a chamomile astringent.
