    Apple Cider Vinegar: What Does It Really Do For You?

    We have all seen the gorgeous complexion of Miranda Kerr and Scarlett Johansson as well as Heidi Klum’s amazing figure. This does not just come along with fame, so what is their secret?

    Well we could assume that they use high-end facial products and have personal trainers, but it is actually much less expensive and simpler than that. Apple Cider Vinegar is their secret. Well, not such a hidden fact anymore. Over the past few years several celebrities have disclosed in interviews that they swear by incorporating Apple Cider Vinegar into their daily routines. They do this in several ways whether it be making a tonic before meals in the morning, adding a teaspoon or two to their salad dressing, or even by using it topically.

    Spring 2016 Fitness Trends

    Now that Spring 2017 has arrived, it is the perfect time to check in with our “get fit” goals that we set for ourselves back in January.

    It is hard to believe that three months has flown by that quick. Before you know it, the sunny days and vacays will be calling your name.

    After three months of creating a routine and challenging yourself to stick to it day in and day out, it can get a little mundane. Do not be afraid to make a few tweaks to keep things exciting! We suggest that you look into a new fitness app to add to your repertoire, a new workout outfit, or even a new line of exercise apparel all together. The best part about rewarding yourself with one of these options is that you are enhancing your progress and not hindering it in any way. We are not big fans of splurging on some extravagant meal because more times than not, it will throw you off track.

    From the numerous options for wearable technology such as the Fitbit, to the steps counter that is already installed on your smartphone, chances are you have tried to incorporate some form of fitness application into your workout routine. For those of you that have done just that, you may be comfortable with what you have going on and should turn some attention towards adding a new well-being app instead. On the other hand, if you have not taken the time to find the best fitness applications to help with your workout routine, we have done it for you! Check out the list of the most popular well-being and fitness apps below and see what you can add to your daily practice.

    Well-Being

    Sleep Cycle: Sleep should always be one of your main priorities. Not only does sleep affect our mood and well-being, but our nutrition, motivation, and overall health as well. Sleep cycle works as a way to help you achieve your most restful sleeps by following your brain waves and cycles throughout the night. You have the ability to set an alarm and have it wake you up at the perfect time that is right for your body. After a few nights of using the app you will have a sufficient amount of charted nights of sleep allowing you to recognize your sleeping patterns and make the most of each snooze.

    Headspace: Clearing our minds can be an extremely difficult task. Often times we are bombarded with so many things throughout the day that by the time time our heads hit the pillow it all catches up to us and keeps us from achieving a good night of sleep. This application offers guided meditations and exercises to train your mind in letting go of thoughts creating peace in your mind. It can be very helpful to read over tips of how to de-stress and just relax. Give your mind a break and let this application work as a psychological personal trainer!

    MyFitnessPal: Nutrition is one of the main aspects of a healthy well-being. Whether you are attempting to shed a few pounds or simply just become more aware of what you are putting into your body, MyFitnessPal is a great tool. This app allows you to chart all the foods you consume along with water, exercise, etc. Give it a try and see how you are doing now and where your potential lies!

    Fitness

    Nike Training Club: It is safe to say that we all love Nike products. This application is perfect for any type of workout you are feeling. You have the ability to pick any type of workout for anytime that you have on your hands. It also features helpful tips from professionals and much more.

    Run Keeper: This app uses your phone’s built-in GPS to create a route or map that is best fit for your run. You do not have to be training for a marathon to be interested in giving this app a try, in fact it is great for starters if you are challenging yourself to pick up a new exercise.

    Flexter: This application is free which is always an incentive. Besides the multiple different workouts it suggests, it features several well-made videos to guide you to using your best form and maximizing your strength in each position.

    Fitstar Yoga: Sometimes finding your zen in the comfort of your own home at any time is the best. At night if you are having trouble sleeping or starting of your morning with a clear mind, yoga is always a great option. You can have yoga experts advice and classes right at your fingertips with this awesome yoga application!

    When was the last time you treated yourself to a new outfit? Chances are that may have been one of your rewards for reaching your goals (or maybe that is just me). I find a great sense of achievement when I can add a new workout outfit to my closet after making some noticeable progress in reaching my ideal figure. We are here to give you a little taste of what the go-to look is for this Spring. The bright colors are great and all, but neutrals are the way to go this year. Considering Athleisure has been all the hype in 2016, you want to be feeling confident strutting around in your workout clothes both inside and outside of the gym. Your next purchase should fall under the subtle tones of blush pink to heather gray and of course the traditional jet black.

    The final reward that you should delve into is trying out a new workout line all together. I know this can be a daring task seeing as how normally once we find a line that accents our bodies the way we like it, there is no point in testing the waters with other brands. Keep in mind that you never know what else is out there until you try. There have been celebrities coming out with fitness lines lately to make your athleisure experience a little easier to follow. If Fabletics by Kate Hudson did not fit to please you with it’s lower price point, another flawless celebrity icon is launching her new line. Beyonce has partnered with TopShop to launch Ivy Park, a line that was inspired by her upbringing and inspiration to live a fit lifestyle. The line includes everything from clothing to shoes. The difference with this launch is that TopShop, a British retailer, is not promoting it as a conventional collaboration as they normally would, it is an actual partnership. That being said, there are numerous options for workout clothing to try out and keep you inspired on your fitness venture.

    Hopefully one of the three options above leaves you intrigued in starting something new and spicing up your fitness and health routine! Good luck!

    Skinny Fiber Review

    Skinny Fiber Diet is a supplement sold by SkinnyBodyCare.com. The starter pack bottle is currently sold on their website for $59.99 (30% off original price) for a limited time and on Amazon for a discounted price. But who knows how long a limited time price lasts these days? Keep in mind when looking at deals on products that are advertised in this way, that if there is no given date that the offer ends, chances are that it is a marketing ploy to get you to make the purchase sooner. The website features three other products by the names of SkinnyBodMAX, HiBurn8, and Instant Youth. The website includes the home sales page and a page with ingredients that pertain to Skinny Fiber. The other pages are dedicated to each of the other products on the market by Skinny Body Care. That being said, there is very little information on the product and its effectiveness. They use a five-minute video and three testimonial images on their sales page to give the consumer brief information about the product. According to Skinny Body Care, the most important key to losing weight is making sure that your body is in the right condition to lose weight. According to Skinny Fiber representatives, no matter how much one alters their diet and exercise routine, if your body is not fortified with the proper nutrients, the chances of finding success in weight loss is slim. Sure you can make statements like that, but there is no scientific evidence to prove that their product is what will give your body the proper nutrients.

    There is very limited information on this product. The most information provided is regarding the ingredients used in the product itself. In fact, when you search the product there is more detailed information on sites that have reviewed the product rather than the actual company page. This product has been around for about 7 years and only has three testimonials to share? This is not a good sign. If the product was the effective, there would be plenty of information to share about it on it’s very own sales page.

    They advertise a 90-day challenge all over the web page. This challenge is carried out by taking a photo of yourself prior to starting the diet pills, taking the pills for 90 days straight, then sending in an after photo. Mind you, in order to carry out this challenge you would have to purchase multiple bottles. For a simple step up from plain fiber, these bottles definitely add up to be pretty costly. What makes this fiber pills so much better than your average fiber that you can buy at any grocery store?

    Skinny Fiber Claims

    Skinny Fiber supplements claim to be the most effective product on the market as well as the safest. Most times when a product can claim it is “safest”, it is not very effective. They promote healthy weight management, proprietary formula, support health and detoxification, provide antioxidant properties, etc. Just to clarify a proprietary formula is a term used when there are no active ingredients in the supplement. There is very little product detail, all we are given are a few before and after images and the ingredients of the product. The main ingredient is Glucomannan. This is listed as a natural dietary fiber that “expands your stomach and makes you eat less” (SkinnyFiberDiet.com). Along with Glucomannan, they claim that their product is made up of two other appetite suppressants, and the key component being enzymes. According to this diet, with the proper enzymes being consumed our bodies should be able to function fully and shed unwanted pounds as efficiently as possible. Well yes, we can agree that if our body that is in the proper condition and health it should be able to make something of weight loss. The issue here is that some simple fiber pills are not the only thing needed to maintain weight loss. Exercise and proper nutrition are crucial. Skinny Fiber does not offer these important factors, therefore it will not suffice.

    Does Skinny Fiber Have Scientific Backing?

    Not very surprising, but there is not any scientific backing provided for the supplements. They list the ingredients along with a brief description of what each ingredient is, but no scientific resources to back their claims.

    They claim that the enzymes our bodies will receive from taking the supplement, will help our bodies to function at it’s best ability. Yes, we are aware that digestive enzymes can come in the form of supplement and capsules but the issue here is that the amount we should be taking is all relative to the foods we consume. To generalize and just take a fiber capsule that has these enzymes once a day and then adjusted to twice a day is not how these enzymes are designed to work. That being said, there is no scientific research to explain the enzymes that are included in the ingredients, so how do we know that this is really the case? Does this fiber supplement bring everything into balance that easily? That’s just it, it’s a risky 50/50.

    Is Skinny Fiber Effective For Weight Loss?

    As far as being effective, the Glucomannan seems to be their only claim to fame. Rather than treating this supplement as a daily go-to, many consumers found that when they did stick to taking it from time-to-time they would feel full for a longer period of time.

    “ …I will continue to take these, as I do feel like I am less hungry when I take them. The directions ask that you drink lots of water when you take the pill, so that may also be part of why I was less hungry. Because it did help me stay regular and I felt like it did make me less hungry, I'm giving it four stars. To be fair, I don't think buyers should automatically expect weight loss, as that happens from a combination of so many other variables…”-Sherry, an Amazon Customer

    However, feeling full for a longer period of time (which is not guaranteed to occur for all) is not a solution for weight loss. For long term weight loss you will need a balanced nutritional plan and exercise routine to keep you on track. A supplement might be an added factor to help achieve your goals, but it will not be the solution on it’s own.

    What Are Skinny Fiber's Side Effects?

    There are not many side effects to be aware of as they do not explicitly warn you of any. Considering the product seems to be not much more than a glamorized fiber product that you can find at any market for under $10, lack of explicit side effects makes sense.

    Skinny Fiber's Support

    Not until you start going through the process of purchasing the product, you are given the option for support. They give you a phone number (817) 479-9198 in which you can contact their staff for support, to tell about your experience, or to gather further knowledge (or so they say). In the several calls I have made to this phone line, they have an automated machine that says all of the representatives are busy or that you have reached them outside of business hours. In calling several times and getting the same response I have no choice but to think, they do not actually take calls over the phone. I find this to be extremely frustrating. If I am a customer looking to purchase your product and want to be assured that I am making the right choice and you do not have anyone available to help, it is alarming. I do not know about you but that automatically puts doubt in my mind about following through with the purchase.

    They refer you to contact their [email protected] email. If a client is really looking to get immediate feedback and feel confident in their purchase, this sort of delayed response is not ideal. There is also a “contact us” form in which you can fill out your information and send them a message. There is no specified turnaround time on the response using this method either. Therefore, who knows when you will get an informative response?

    As far as their money back and return policy. They claim to offer a 100% Money Back Guarantee (not including the shipping and handling costs) if it is your first product purchase and is returned within 30 days of the purchase date and a little bit longer grace period if multiple purchases are made in the same month. Well after experiencing their lack of customer support, I would be very skeptical about getting that Money Back Guarantee after all.

    Bottom Line

    Skinny Fiber Diet is a supplement program that claims to help you lose weight by suppressing your appetite and balancing the enzymes in your body. However, as I looked into this product more, it is indeed just a glorified fiber pill. You can go to your local grocer and get a large tin of fiber powder for under $10. Skinny Fiber goes to say that they’re product is more beneficial than just the fiber due to the enzymes that it provides your body with. Yes, digestive enzymes are great and sometimes our bodies need a little extra assistance, but by taking these pills once and eventually twice a day you are not making the proper adjustments. The dosage of enzymes should be based on the foods that you are consuming. Aside from the faulty generalized dosage of the pills, they are not made of any active ingredients, therefore how are any changes being made? Truth is they are not. Lastly, the lack of customer support when you call their phone line is not ideal when you purchase an item like this online. You never know when you need to get ahold of a representative and when they just direct you to an email address with an automated response right off the bat, is just not promising. Overall, for those of you that are looking to get rid of bloating, have your body and enzymes functioning properly, gain energy, and lose unwanted pounds, I suggest you look into another program.

    Rip 60 Diet Review

    Rip 60 is an exercise program that claims to get you ripped and in shape in as fast as 60 days time. Is this program really all that it's cracked up to be?

    rip60 Review

    Rip 60 is a workout plan that uses at home equipment installments, videos, and recipes to try and assist people achieve their “dream body” in 60 days. That claim right there is an exaggerated statement that automatically has me skeptical of the program. This workout is often compared to P90x and is featured on several websites including Amazon and other equipment websites such as Free Motion. However, Rip 60 does not have it’s own website. Without a home and sales page, there is a lot of room for concern. If this program were well established and successful wouldn’t they have a website for it? To see how well this program works, you as the consumer would have a lot of research to do? Fear not, I have done it for you.

    Rip 60 comes with DVD’s, a nutritional guide, and cords to attach to a door-frame for at home workouts. Keep in mind these cords are not designed to support anyone over 300 pounds. Some of you may be under this weight, but others may not be. If you are not under 300 pounds, you must stop right here because unfortunately this particular exercise program does not have a solution for you (or any of us for that matter). This program is normally sold for about $120 or online at Walmart for about $72. After purchasing this main package, there are other pieces of equipment that can be pricey and mandatory in order to perform some of the workouts properly, which can add up of course. They offer a 90-day limited warranty, but it is vague as to if that is only offered on Amazon and what it even entails (Something a website and some support could alleviate).

    The workouts that make up this program are predominantly high intensity workouts. For many of us looking for a new diet, we are not looking to jump right into high intensity exercises so this may not be the best if you are a beginner to this whole change of lifestyle deal.  Also another thing to be aware of is that there are professionals such as Jillian Michaels and other in-shape figures that are you leading you in the workouts on their own without others just like you on the screen. For some this may be “fitspiration” and for others it may be unrealistic and discouraging. Whether you find this inspiring or not, the bottom line is that Rip 60 does not meet the simple qualifications to be a recommendable diet and program.

    This information is not intended to replace the advice of a doctor. ExpertsKnowBest.com disclaims any liability for the decisions you make based on this information. *Results may vary.

    Rip 60 Claims

    As we can see by the name of the plan, Rip 60 claims to have your body completely made over in the short time frame of 60 days. If you are eating healthy and participating in high intensity workouts daily, you are bound to shed some pounds. Although, long-term success is far from guaranteed. With that in mind, there are precautions to be aware of.

    The first is that this program only lasts for 60 days so the results are short term, rather than a full on lifestyle change. Sure, they provide you with a 60-day nutrition guide. But again, what happens when those two months end? In undergoing programs that will truly work for a long lasting period of time it is important to look for sustainable programs. The easiest determinant of a sustainable program is if they offer follow up guides, nutrition plans, workouts, and customer support. This will allow you to carry out a full on lifestyle change at your own pace and in a manner that your body allows for. Believe it or not you will not follow a high intensity workout and bland 60-day nutrition guide over and over for the rest of your life. However, if you have the tools to form the proper habits, you have much greater chances of success. Unfortunately, these tools are not provided with this program in particular.

    Does Rip 60 Have Scientific Backing?

    There is very little background information on the program. It has been endorsed by Jillian Michaels, the Star trainer of the Biggest Loser, which has been enough to persuade many individuals to take on the challenge, but it is not enough to persuade me. Without any scientific proof or research provided, who’s to say the foods they are telling you to eat, the portions they provide, and the types of workouts they say to take part in are the best for you?

    One must always take caution when making drastic changes to their nutrition and exercise routine. Sometimes a plan that works well for others may not fit your personal needs and be beneficial to you. Using cords and different equipment installments in your home can cause more of a headache often times and leaves a lot of room for error and questions. But without much knowledge on the product, how are you to get clarity and direction with your new purchase and program that you were hoping would change your life? Seems a bit too risky…

    Is Rip 60 Effective in Weight Loss?

    As mentioned earlier, it is much more difficult for this program to be effective if the client has not had prior exercise routines. A high intensity workout can be difficult to just jump into. The other issue that may diminish the effectiveness is the nutrition plan. The meals that they recommend are foods that are very low in calories and are not tailored in a way that can be applied to a variety of eating habits. In other words, they do not give you many options depending on what type of eater you are. If you are a picky eater or have certain allergies, it will be difficult for you to follow such a plan. The food you eat plays a large role in the amount of pounds you will shed. Without customer support how will you know which replacement ingredients will be beneficial or not?

    Another issue when it comes to the success of this program is the time frame allotted for this program. It is not designed to help you long-term. Rather, it is a 60 day plan to supposedly get you there quickly, but after those 60 days are over you will not have created a realistic routine for yourself to carry out for the long term.

    Plans have been seen to be effective for those that already have a pretty strict diet and workout routine and are just trying to amp their habits to the next level. For those of you that are just getting started, this diet plan is not effective. This is most definitely not the diet for you if you are looking to make significant changes to your lifestyle for good. On the other hand, those that just are looking for something to step up what you already have going, I would still advise that you be aware of the lack of support available with the purchase of this program.

    What are Rip 60 Side Effects?

    The negative side effects to be aware of could derive from overworking yourself and pushing your body beyond it’s limits if you are not used to working out. The other negative side effects would be the way your body reacts to following a low calorie and restrictive diet. Restrictive diets are not only difficult to sustain but there is also no scientific proof to the diets they provide you with. Therefore, how can you be so sure that it is the best nutrition for your body and future health?

    Rip 60 Support

    There is no support for this product in particular. Depending on where you purchase this product there may be a general phone number, such as Walmart. As far as a specialist for the product, there is no information given. Once you make the purchase it is up to you to hold yourself accountable and follow the food guide and videos. There is a Facebook page that offers other exercise tips and updates, as well as a Twitter page with giveaways and such. Although there is not any phone or email support to go along with the program, the return policies and money back guarantee are all based off of which platform you make your purchase. The terms and conditions for purchasing the product off of Walmart.com may differ entirely than making the purchase off of Amazon.com.

    While there is not necessarily a money back guarantee, there is a 90 day limited warranty available for the program. Whether the details on the warranty are only available upon placing an order or from the retailer itself, there is no straight-forward explanation. It is mentioned on the description of the product on Amazon that a warranty is available, but no further details. The problem that arises here is that sure there may be a warranty on the equipment, but most people undergoing such a change need support, guidance, and assurance. With no provided direct email, phone number, or community forum, this support is unachievable.

    Bottom Line

    ProsCons
    •    60 Day Nutrition Guide

    •    Workout videos feature recognizable Personal Trainers.

    •    Lack of Customer Support

    •    No scientific evidence
    •    Price differences depending on location of purchase
    •    Varying Money Back Guarantee

    Rip 60 is an at home workout that claims to have you ripped and in your best shape in a quick 60 days. As we can conclude from my research, there is hardly and scientific proof other than the obvious and very little support so you must be very committed and self-disciplined in order to see results of any kind. If you are looking for a program to kick-start your weight loss journey, a program like this is not what you are looking for. On the other hand if you are in pretty good shape and already participate in a consistent workout routine, this may be an option, but hopefully you are fine with being on your own and not seeking any guidance. Overall, a program such as Rip 60 is not sustainable and does not provide enough information for us to recognize it as a reputable program. Instead, we advise that you seek a program that is certain to help you lose muscle tenderness, bloating, unwanted pounds, and leave you feeling energized!

    Provida Life Sciences is an online corporation that has several fitness and nutrition products on the market. This variety of products includes programs, DVD’s, cookbooks, supplements, and more. Their ultimate focus is supposedly on the health of the consumer and their families.  Provida’s brands have dimmed down into the main Food Lovers Fat Loss System and Food Lovers Fat Loss System Online. Aside from these programs, they offer several supplements and books to attempt to aid in exercise and weight loss. Since there are several avenues for the consumer to test out, it is tough to guarantee success. For example, the first program they offer is known as “Food Lovers Fat Loss System”, this is geared toward clients that are not looking for a restrictive diet, but instead learning how to eat their favorite foods in the proper portions and ratios. Understanding portion sizes is important, but that is just one small factor of what it takes to be successful in making a change in your life. Do you need to pay just about $140 to understand the proper portion sizes? We think most definitely not. It is going to take a lot more than a simple portions guide to make a long lasting change. Just a quick reminder that the foods you consume, DO indeed matter and if you are eating small portions of unhealthy foods, you are not helping yourself or your health in the future.

    Provida Claims

    Provida claims that their products “will work”. They do offer a 100% Money Back Guarantee for any customers that do not benefit from their products.

    A claim that they make is that their products will create dramatic results for families with the use of their products. This is a very vague claim. Of course, reducing intake and portions sizes will make for a change, so will adding supplements to your diet. But what kind of changes effect the whole family? Unfortunately there is no scientific backing or proof which leads us to think that this may just be puffery.

    Lastly, they pride themselves on their practicality. In their promise of success they mention that their practical programs are far more effective than any other fat loss programs such as those fad diets and starvation methods. This is quite a claim. Who’s to say some customers may not feel like they are starving when following these strict portions? After making such a statement, you would assume that they would provide some scientific proof on the website backing up the claim that they are more effective than any other fat loss program.

    Does Provida Have Scientific Backing?

    Overall, there are no peer reviewed scientific articles to prove that these products work. For us, this means that there is simply not enough to believe that this product is worth purchasing. Depending on which product you decide to go with from Provida Life Sciences, the extent of scientific backing differs. For example, the DVDs do not have any given scientific backing. On the other hand, the supplements claim that they have “researched ingredients” but do not provide sources or proof on the website. This raises the question of whether or not the makers are using puffery to their advantage or have simply left out a critical portion of proof for some odd reason.

    Is Provida Effective in Weight Loss?

    Provida has quite a few different products, some of the products are sold by themselves such as the supplements, and then the others in the form of programs. The most effective diets have a balance of nutrition and exercise that they hold you accountable to. That being said, what Provida has to offer does not necessarily put everything into play. They sell a plethora of products but just expect you to put it all into proper routine on your own. This is not what you are looking for. Sure if you buy a supplement here, try this workout there, and eat small amounts of food, there is a chance you’ll come up with the right mix, but that is not ideal. First of all there is no guarantee that any of their products are scientifically engineered for success. Second, why waste time and money trying to come up with the right formula and entrusting a brand with no customer support and lack of scientific evidence, when you can find your solution in another program?

    Further there are two different web pages for their “Food Lovers Fat Loss System”. Depending on where you access the page from, with completely different designs, this raises quite a bit of confusion as to whether or not this product is faulty and even further if it is effective in anyway whatsoever?

    What are Provida's Side Effects?

    There are not any explicit side effects that they warn you of prior to consuming their supplements or participating in their plans. In looking at the products that they have advertised on their website. The anxiety and mood boosting pills by the name of Symetrin, raise concern. Most often times pills that have these abilities are prescribed by a doctor. Although they claim that they are non-addictive and can be taken daily, it is always best to run it by a physician first. Naturally there are side effects with taking medications that should be forewarned to customers, but are not in this case. Other side effects that could arise would be fatigue or headaches when altering your diet so drastically as certain plans or slimming supplements from Provida call for. This is natural, but a disclaimer should be provided for those of you that are unfamiliar with participating in such programs.

    Provida Support

    Provida Life Sciences fools you with their phony supportive community. When it comes to the customer and any questions you have regarding the product or further information, you are provided with a support email [email protected] as well as a “customer care and corporate offices” phone number -(877) 776-8432-.

    I was very caught off guard by Provida and their “customer support” phone line that they provided. After calling this number, it went to an automated response asking if I were 50 years or older. Then once you click that option, you must take part in a survey with a chance to win a cruise. I am sorry, but I am looking for answers regarding my new purchase or interest in the diet, not a free cruise? After the survey, they say “Thank You for participating and Goodbye”. I tried calling back, and the automated response says “this phone number can no longer be dialed from your area. This is the phone number given on the Provida website itself. Not even one of their specialized products. This just screams scam. This is faulty support and extremely unprofessional. You can bet that you will not receive any responses or feedback on inquiries you may have. How are you going to make a lifestyle change with support like that? How are you going to make sure that you get that money back guarantee?

    Bottom Line

    Provida Life Sciences is a corporation that does not hold true to it’s name. Do not let the “sciences” fool you. This corporation oversees a number of supplements, products, and diet programs. None of which are backed by scientific proof or research. Their lack of customer service when it came down to picking up the phone and giving them a call for more insight was alarming. Lastly, there is no full on step-by-step program to guarantee you with success on your journey. With a plethora of random products how are you so sure as to which ones to spend your time and money on? With that in mind, we do not recommend Provida and their programs. We advise you to look into another option that is guaranteed to leave you energized, help you shed unwanted pounds, and overall health.
