The famed teatox SkinnyMint now has has SkinnyMint Fat Burning Gummies. The two-step fat burning gummy program combines Green Coffee Bean and Garcinia Cambogia to support your health regime and give you 'best fat burning results'.
Step-one - Take two Power Up gummies in the morning for an enegery boost. These green coffee bean infused gummies are sugar-free and taste like espresso. I love the flavor. The texture is not like your typical gummy - they melt in your mouth fairly quickly.
Green coffee beans haven't been roasted or highly processed and have a higher concentrate of nutrients. Typically, green coffee beans are crushed and taken in pill form, but as of late, many other diet products contain the weight loss aid.
Caffiene is a natural stimulate and is proven to boost energy. I love the taste and scent of coffee, but too much caffeine has a terrible effect on me - I get the jitters and feel nauseous. Each Power Up gummies contain 200 mg, which meets the recommended dosage. I drink Daily Harvest Cold Brew + Almond every morning. It also contains green coffee. These two combined definitely puts me into overdrive.. If I had to choose (in an effort to avoid jitters), I'd go with my Cold Brew + Almond. You gotta try this smoothie - it's amazing!
Step-two - The Hunger Buster gummies contain Garcinia Cambogia and are said to curb your snacking desire mid afternoon. The Hunger Buster gummies are also sugar-free and taste like pineapple. The flavor is a bit sweet for me (I prefer the Power Up), but I'm not one to snack on sweets anyway (HUGE salt fan here). The texture is the same as the Power Up.
Garcinia Cambogia is a tropical fruit and is also found in many weight loss supplements. The fruits rind contains an active ingredient that is said to boost fat burning and curb your appetite. Each SkinnyMint gummy contains 250 mg of Garcinia Cambogia extract. The recommended daily dose of Garcinia Cambogia is 500 mg to 1500 mg - SkinnyMint gummies are well within the safe range.
Two espresso flavored Power Up in the am and two Hunger Buster gummies as a snack. Who wouldn't want to incorporate delicious gummies into their weight loss regiment?
Here's the reality of this two-step fat burning gummy program. It is highly recommended that you also stick to a reduced-calorie diet and exercise regularly. Most weight loss supplements do. If you're watching what you eat, maintain a healthy lifestyle and exercise, you're gonna loose weight - you don't need supplements. Albeit, I do believe that purchasing weight loss products may kickstart your desire and commitment to loose weight. Especially, tasty gummies! It's mostly in your head.
My opinion is to find a reduced-calorie diet that works for you, don't starve yourself and indulge once and a while. Drink green tea and lots of water. EXERCISE and maintain a healthy lifestyle. You'll feel better and slim down. Weight loss supplements aren't gonna do a damn thing on their own, but if they help keep you motivated, incorporate them into your diet.

10 days left in Amsterdam and then I'm moving back to the U.S. - YAY! The house is packed, and 'I've' been packing my body with all the yummy (unhealthy) foods Amsterdam has to offer. After weeks of consuming anything and everything, I'm feelin' a little heavy (in every sense of the word). I need to kickstart a healthier lifestyle and rejuvenate my body.
For the next 72 hours, I'm focused on my go-to juice cleanse by Juice Brothers and favorite teatox, SkinnyMint. No food, just liquids! It's not as hard as you think - you just gotta stay focused on the benefits. I've done many juice cleanses and favor the green juices over fruity blends. Too much sweet, makes me crave salt, but the bitter greens deter me from sneaking salty snacks. Master cleanse is my favorite; maple syrup, lemon and cayenne make the perfect morning drink. Oh, and the nut milks are a nice treat at the end of the day. I honestly don't struggle with juice cleansing; especially the hard cleanse by Juice Brothers. I think they key is to find juices that taste good.
I'll also consume about 4 cups of green tea, SkinnyMint tea and 2 liters of water a day. Yeah, Imma be on the toilet all-day long! Green tea is a miracle beverage. I drink Sencha green tea everyday to keep the bloat to a minimum, and reap the health benefits the antioxidants and nutrients have on the body. After I finish the juice cleanse, it's salad, fruit, veggies and chicken for the next few weeks. Imma look fabulous, my skin will glow and I'll feel energetic again. Sometimes your body just a needs a restart and after 3 days of liquids, even green beans taste good! You will be inclined to eat healthier.
Juice/tea cleansing tips:
Set reasonable goals (you can't go a week without food).
The end of your cleanse should land on a weekend, so you can relax and avoid over exerting yourself.
If you absolutely have to eat something, opt for avocado with olive oil or lemon. Salt free nuts will also curve your cravings.
Choose juice blends that you'll enjoy (well, mostly).
Do the cleanse with a partner, so you can support each other and smack the other if they're dreaming about french fries!

Flat Tummy Tea is a two-step herbal detox claiming to cleanse your system, stimulate digestion and reduce bloating. I posted a review about Flat Tummy Tea a few months ago and thought I'd do a comparison to another natural teatox program, SkinnyMint. This 28 day, two-step teatox is designed to kick start a healthy lifestyle, increase your energy levels and naturally cleanse your body. Basically, both teas make the same claims, but in different words. I'm not gonna get into the ingredient details for each tea, cause I'd be writing for days, but I will give you a quick review and my personal thoughts.
Both Teas work! Combined with healthy eating habits and just a little exercise, you will look and feel better. Tea detoxing is no weight-loss miracle, just an addition to your healthy lifestyle. Tea in general is really good for you. I am partial to green tea and recently read a post about tea detoxing compared to simply drinking green tea. I followed their suggestion, drank five cups of green tea a day (no teatox) and had great results. I didn't loose weight, but my stomach was much less bloated. If teatoxing is not for you, I suggest green tea after every meal. It increases your metabolic rate 4 to 5 percent and is an excellent source of antioxidants.
What is similar about these two detox programs? They both contain green tea and other natural diuretic ingredients. Flat Tummy Tea 'Activate' should be consumed every morning and 'Cleanse' every third evening. SkinnyMint 'Morning Boost' should also be consumed every morning and 'Night Cleanse' every second night. Both have a mild laxative effect and reduce bloating. Both morning teas contain caffeine and thus your energy levels increase!
What's different? Flat Tummy Tea is a loose tea in resealable packets. You can use a tea defuser - I am partial to individual tea filters (less to clean). Either way, this is an additional cost. I like that SkinnyMint comes in individual tea bags (also in resealable packets), each with a tag 'Morning Boost' or Night Cleanse'. As far as taste goes, SkinnyMint is much better. The Morning Boost has a fruity flavor and the Night cleanse has notes of lemongrass, ginger and orange.
Not that this matters, but the Flat Tummy Tea comes with a small zipped case (great for travel). My SkinnyMint purchase came with an 'insert your own photo here' fridge magnet. I guess it's for inspiration and I suppose it would make a cute Instagram. Oh and it will bring social media attention to SkinnyMint!
A two week pack of Flat Tummy Tea currently retails for €28.28 and a SkinnyMint 14 day teatox for €24.90. Not much difference there, but you will have to purchase a defuser or filters for the Flat Tummy Tea.

I don't remember how old I was the last time I wore a bodysuit, but it was in the nineties and I had a drawer full of them. I suddenly feel old! Bodysuits have kinda lingered in the background over the years - I purchased a Wolford bodysuit a few years ago and felt the body-hugging fit was unflattering and showing off all my imperfections (I returned it). Thankfully the 'cropped top' trend forced me to maintained a flat stomach and bodysuits are an option again. I love a turtleneck bodysuit paired with high-waisted flares or cropped trousers (high-waisted is a must). One of my favorite looks for Fall is my Tibi stretch-jersey turtleneck bodysuit and cropped stretch-jersey wide-leg pants in dark grenache - I am a bit obsessed with monochromatic looks. Channeling the seventies this season, opt for a simple turtleneck design in neutral shades paired with corduroy or denim flares and a thick heel. Visit NET-A-PORTER and browse Donna Karan NY, Wolford and Body Editions for simple and unexpected bodysuit designs.

Before I go on a rant about minding your midriff, let me be clear - most women have midriff concerns and it is normal to have a slight bump or swelling in your abdomen area. Only models (whom are usually in their twenties) have a flat stomach and they work hard for it. Those of us who don't obsess over our physic during the winter, might have some regrets come that first summer heat-wave. Even if you bust your ass tryna get fit for summer vacation, after the first salt-rimmed margarita and poolside burger - your bloated! So don't fret, just dress appropriately and do your best to mask your shortcomings with the right attire. Here are some bikini options for those of us trying to cover our midriff while keeping fashionable and cool in tropical temperatures. Moderate to high rise bottoms are your best friend this summer. Side ruching (gathering of material) creates a diversion and makes the area appear smaller. Prints conceal, while solid colors tend to show your figure for what it is. Horizontal stripes will make your bust look larger and your hips wider, in turn your belly will appear flatter. A pair of high-waisted shorts atop your bikini is a cute 'cover up'. It's all about playing with proportions, texture, prints and styles to find your perfect poolside attire.
