Foods Good For Your Skin

Did you know that oatmeal is great for your skin? Need food snacks or recipes for munchies that’ll quench your taste buds, slim your waistline, and keep your skin clear?  It’s amazing how what you eat can make such a big difference in how your skin looks!

Oatmeal is an ideal skin-friendly breakfast food because it is an antioxidant and fiber-rich whole grain that is absorbed slowly, so it doesn’t cause the blood sugar spikes that more refined breakfast cereals can, adding that blood sugar spikes are linked with skin flare-ups.

And when it comes to choosing the right oatmeal, texture – not taste – should be the deciding factor. Steel cut oats are going to be a better choice [than instant] because they’re a little chewier and the chewier the texture, the less your blood sugar is going to be effected.

Looking for a snack option that’s more satisfying than a celery stick but comes with less guilt than a bag of Cheetos? Your search is over.

Did you know that Chocolate is great for your skin?  How much should you eat?  Find out here!Chocoholics, for example, will be pleased to know that they can indulge in their sweet fix. Dark chocolate is OK, as long as you eat the right amount. I like to use the three-finger rule of breaking off the right amount, because three middle fingers equals one ounce of chocolate.

On the go?  Want healthy snacks for your children OR better yet to promote healthy skin... try these foods!Fruits and veggies are great for healthy looking skin too.  Opt for cutting up your own fruit, however if you don’t have time, purchase the prepackaged store fruit on the go.  Makes a great snack for eating alone or in a smoothie!

Did you know that Greek Yogurt is great for your skin? Greek Yogurt is a great snack and helps your skin plus you can mix it with the fruit for a great smoothie.

Want to have healthy skin?  Try eating this!Last but not least is getting plenty of Omega’s for healthy skin.  You can take fish oil capsules or opt to buy Salmon in the can, frozen or in pouches to serve on crackers for a snack.

Another option for healthy skin especially if you crave sugar or other sweets, pasta’s and breads is our ProBio5. My cousin was taking ProBio5 and loved the fact it was clearing up her acne.  Along with the XFactor Vitamins you too can have healthier looking skin and hair by following this plan.  Read more about these great supplements of the ProBio5 and the Xfactor vitamins here:  www.plexygal.com or leave me a comment and I will get back with you in 24 hours!

GREAT TESTIMONY FROM A MOM!!

“My son has battled eczema his entire 8 years of life. We have had many ups and downs and have tried every “magic potion” thrown our way. We knew that it was a problem being caused by something from the inside of his body. He most certainly had a milk, egg and peanut allergy that made it worse. After years of research and playing with his diet and making some pretty good strides I decided to give probiotics a try. The pictures show one of his worst outbreaks in several years and was taken the day he started taking ProBio5. 35 days later is his after picture you will see a huge improvement…one that we have not had just by diet alone. His feet have always been the worst source of his flare ups and while they are still pink the sores are almost all gone!!! Not only have the probiotics helped his skin, they have helped with his mood swings and he is sleeping in much longer stretches of time. So thankful that we have ProBio5 on auto delivery so that running out will never be an excuse to stop taking them!

 

 

Great testimony from a mom on how this helped her child's eczema !  Wow....

ACNE sufferers read on…

“Okay this is officially one of the hardest things I’ve done. Let me start with saying there is no filter – these are COMPLETELY raw photos. These results are approximately 3 months – less I think. I’ve struggled with acne my entire life but it had never been as bad as it became this past year. I was depressed and lonely, hardly EVER hanging out with anyone or leaving myapartment. I felt so ugly and just worthless…I kinda hated my life. I started taking Plexus mid-June and I noticed some reduction in my inflammation but nothing huge then about a month later I started the “cleanse” of ProBio5 and BioCleanse. I took 4 Probios and 4-6 Cleanses per day. Within a few weeks my acne started to show some significant improvement. By September my face was practically clear! The slight redness and marks you see in the right picture are just that – scars and marks from past pimples that are healing. My face is healing and I’m so happy!!! Need help in clearing up your skin?This is what clearing your candida can do! Regulating blood sugars. Reducing inflammation and improving circulation. Cleansing all the toxins out of your body! I have many more awesome results but I’m focusing on just the acne right now. It has also saved me money on medications, dermatologist visits, and prescriptions! I am eternally grateful for Plexus and will not be quiet about it because it can change others’ lives as it has mine!!

The Top Sexy Foods For Weight Loss

What?  This is not only a list of the top sexy foods but they are also great for your waistline!  Not only can losing weight increase your libido by improving circulation, stamina and sex hormone production, but it turns out you can also have fun getting there.

TAKE A LOOK AT ONE OF THE SEXY FOOD LIST.....CHOCOLATE IS GOOD FOR YOU

So put away the love letters and flowers, gentlemen. Save the scented candles for a black-out. The quickest way into our hearts is cooking and providing some simple treats from your local store.  And women if you need help getting your man in the mood and teach him to be romantic, here is what you can feed him!

Incorporating these sexy foods into your diet can ignite your metabolism and your mojo at the same time!

What are the top Sexy Foods for Weight Loss & Sex Drive

  1. Celery. Not just for rabbits.  Ava Cadell, Ph.D, reports that raw celery may contain a compound similar to androsterone, a male hormone that triggers female attraction when released from the sweat glands. Dr. M. Anderson and Dr. W. Gaman have dubbed this phallic finger food as “Vegetable Viagra”. Scrub, cut into sticks, tuck in some heart-healthy cashew butter, and indulge in this snack on a sultry afternoon.Did you know that Celery will not only trim your waistline but give you a boost in libido!  Check  out the top SEXY foods!
  2. Chocolate. Women all over the world breathed a collective sigh when The Journal of Sexual Medicine reported that those who consumed one cube of dark chocolate daily reported significantly improved sexual desire and function versus non-chocolate eaters (do those actually exist?). Dark chocolate that is 70% cocoa and higher is rich in phenylethylamine, a chemical that stimulates the brain’s pleasure center, as well as flavanoids that improve circulation. Chocolate could be just what the sexual therapist orders when you need a little provocative pick-me-up.
  3. Seafood. Smooth, slippery, salty…seaweed? Ellen Kamhi, Ph.D., R.N., H.N.C., notes that the highly nutritive properties of mineral-rich seaweeds support sexual function, such as kelp, nori, kombu, and dulce. As natural sources of iodine, they support thyroid function and thereby help to improves desire and sexual performance.  And it turns out that fish can also turn you into a sex fiend, due to its high concentration of zinc and omega-3 fatty acids. While high-zinc foods are traditionally recommended for body fluid production and prostate function in men, they are also vital for women’s sexual health. Zinc is involved in the production of sex hormones and supports adrenal functions, which help combat stress and increase stamina. Omega-3 fatty acids aide in cardiovascular health, decrease triglycerides, and have a hand in dopamine production, a feel-good chemical released in our brains.Did you know this will help your sex drive?

  4. Pomegranate Seeds. Spread the whole thing wide and move in for a raw, juicy mouthful, or enjoy each morsel on the tip of your tongue…however you prefer to eat your pomegranates, MindLab International at the University of Sussex found they can increase sexual drive in both men and women. Pomegranate seeds are rich in vitamin C, bioflavonoids and antioxidants, which support sperm motility, fertility, and significantly increase the sexual interest of both men and women, according to the study.Pomegranate-seeds help with libido!  Need to get in the mood?
  5. Flax Seeds.  Most potent in their freshly ground-up form, flax seeds are one of the richest sources of lignans, powerful phyto-estrogens that help to balance out female hormones, counteract the symptoms of menopause, and help prevent breast cancer. Increasing energy and stamina, flaxseeds are also abundant in magnesium, helping to soothe stressed nerves.  I love to make my own flax seed crackers! Did you know that flaxseed is one on the list of sexy foods?  Check out the other USES FOR FLAXSEED
  6. Spicy Foods. Chili peppers, curry, and other spicy foods contain a phytochemical called capsaicin, which can stimulate sexual arousal by triggering the release of feel-good endorphins and speeding up the heart rate. In fact, MindLab International found that men were even moresexually aroused by a spicy meal than they were after a passionate kiss from their partners. So skip the fine dining on your next romantic outing, and head over to the local Mexican food stand instead. Spice up your life with a little spice! Want to spice up things in the bedroom?  Chili peppers and other spices known to increase libido!   Now if you are wanting to trim your waistline, don’t just stop with these foods!  I lost 24 pounds with a pink drink called Plexus Slim/Accelerator Combo in which you can get it here: http://www.plexygal.com

Plexus Slim FDA Approved?

FIND OUT BEFORE YOU BUYWHY are vitamins not FDA approved....?Do you wonder why  Adult Multivitamins, Flintstones vitamins or any other vitamins you purchase at your local Wal-mart or Pharmacy are not FDA approved?  Do you take them?  Are they good for you or do you even question if they are good for you?  We usually take it for face value and buy them, believing they will help in some way.  However if you will take note, they all have the label  that notes:  This statement has not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.  This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.

This is a question I get asked from time to time:  “Why isn’t Plexus FDA approved?”

The FDA does not have to approve ANY natural supplement. However, Plexus is regulated by the FDA and they do not disapprove of our products. Slim is categorized as a food supplement therefore it is neither approved nor disapproved by the FDA.  Plexus adheres to federal regulations, guidelines, and recommendations.

“FDA does not review supplements for effectiveness (as it does for prescription and OTC medications) before they enter the market. If the dietary supplement contains a new dietary ingredient, the manufacturer must submit for FDA’s review data on that ingredient’s safety—but not its effectiveness.

FDA takes enforcement actions against manufacturers if their products are found to be unsafe, adulterated and/or misbranded (for example, if their labeling is false or misleading) or if products marketed as dietary supplements are making claims to diagnose, mitigate, treat, cure, or prevent a disease.”

Is this FDA approved?  Find OUT WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW before buying!The ingredients in Plexus Slim:

Chromium    200 mcg

Proprietary blend of Chlorogenic Acid (from Green Coffee Caffea arabica Bean) Extract (contains less than 2% natural caffeine), Garcinia cambogia Fruit Extract, Alpha Lipoic Acid.

Other Ingredients: POLYDEXTROSE, CITRIC ACID, NATURAL FLAVORS, BEET (BETA VULGARIS ROOT) EXTRACT (FOR COLOR), STEVIA (STEVIA REBAUDIANA LEAF) EXTRACT, LUO HAN GUO (SIRAITIA GROSVENORII FRUIT) EXTRACT. How about a product to help you lose weight WITH A $$ BACK GUARANTEE?

Debunk Stress During The Holidays

 With the holidays coming up along comes with it is stress!  From traffic, to overeating and to overspending is usually the 3 main components of feeling stressed out.  How can we control the amount of stress that comes into our lives?  We have a plan to be proactive instead of reactive.

Of course there is no way we can control traffic during the holidays, however we can control how we react to it.  We must plan ahead knowing and giving ourselves plenty of time to reach our location without feeling overwhelmed in traffic.  Plan on going on the times when people are most likely not out which could be early morning instead of high traffic hours after work.  Simple and easy, right?  Make sure you have some great listening music or even a teaching help/motivation series in your car so when you are caught in traffic you can learn and stay focused instead of yelling at the other driver for going so slow.

Over eating is another stress during the holiday and gaining weight can cause us to feel even more stressed out.  What tops that off is we usually stress eat more sugar/sweets/carbs to release the feel good hormone.  It is a dangerous never-ending cycle!  What is the answer?  Plexus Slim is a pink drink you mix with a bottle of water every morning and drink.  I love it!  It helps me curb my sugar cravings and helps me feel balanced in all areas.  I highly suggest you try it especially if you want to watch your weight and prevent weight gain during the holidays.  In fact it may help you lose those unwanted pounds and inches.  You can order here at this link:  BUY PLEXUS SLIM AND BLOCK HERE If you are wanting more control when it comes to appetite and blocking sugar/carbs then you may want to purchase the BLOCK too.  (Be sure to get Preferred for a special discount!)

Small stressors can quickly add up to major stress and one big stressful event can send you reeling, with no idea of how to start addressing it. If you could just get away for a little stress relief, you know you would be okay. But too few of us have the time — or the money — to run off on an impromptu vacation.

Well, you don’t have to spend a dime or go anywhere other than a quiet spot nearby to take a mental vacation.

Holidays are coming and so is stress.  Here are some easy ways to release and relieve stress!  Stress Relief: Take Off on a Mental Vacation 

If you don’t find a way to reduce stress, your health will pay the price, both mentally and physically. You can unwind every day in simple ways and still get a major benefit.

Visualizing a stress-free place and other relaxation techniques are quick and easy ways to help your whole body calm down and give you just the boost you need to get on with your day. These six ways for you to slip away on a mental vacation to reduce stress:

  1. Read a book in bed. This is a great escape and can leave you feeling refreshed, relaxed, and ready to face whatever is outside your bedroom door. Your bed is warm, cozy, comfortable, and a peaceful place for you. It feels luxurious, and getting lost in a good book is a perfect way to forget, then refocus, your own thoughts.  Lavender oil is a relaxing oil you can purchase and apply topically or in a diffuser.  You may buy your kit or other oils such as Lavender or Peace and Calming Here: RELAX HERE WITH ESSENTIAL OILS 
  2. Visualize relaxation. Steal a few quiet moments to close your eyes and think of an image that relaxes you — such as the warm sun on your skin and the sound of the ocean, a big country field sprinkled with flowers, or a trickling stream.  Think back to a time when you felt peaceful and relaxed, and focus on releasing the tension from your toes to your head.
  3. Look at pictures or videos from a happy time.   Pull out snapshots or videos of a family vacation or a fun dinner with friends. Reflect on your memories of that occasion, and what made it so enjoyable. Spend a few quiet moments reminiscing, and you’ll find yourself more relaxed.
  4. Look out a window. Distract yourself by focusing on something other than what’s stressing you. Grab a steaming cup of coffee or tea, close the door, and take a mental break. Do a little people watching, appreciate any birds within view, or enjoy some fluffy clouds rolling by. Allow yourself to daydream for a few minutes.
  5. Listen to a relaxation CD. Invest in a couple of these CDs for a short daily escape. You may like to hear chirping birds, rolling waves, or gentle rain — whatever your choice, closing your eyes and listening to these soothing sounds while doing some deep breathing can help you relax and de-stress.  It may be some oldies that bring back memories when you were a teen and carefree!
  6. Take a walk. Exercise is a great way to relieve stress because it’s a great escape for your mind. Head out for a quiet early morning walk or lace up your sneakers on your lunch break. Walking along a trail, waterfront, or other peaceful place when possible may offer even more relaxation.
  7. Breathe.   When you start feeling a clenched jaw, tightness in your chest or overwhelmed, take some deep breaths through your nose and out your mouth.  Do this about 10 times and several times a day to release more oxygen in your body.

Treat yourself to a 5-, 10-, or 20-minute mental vacation each day and train your body to relax and reduce stress — you’ll be amazed at how much better you feel after taking just a few luxurious moments all to yourself.

You Have Been Tricked!

  From one grandmother to another , what we give our grandchildren should be healthy, are these healthy?  Not so.... why?  Check this out!  Click this photo to find out.Veggie Chips or Sticks

Sure the name is deceiving and these cute little easy to hold snack is great for toddlers, plus as a grandmother we want our grandchildren to have the best right?

The word veggie is in its name, so this snack must be healthier than potato chips, right? Wrong. Don’t be duped by the word “veggie” in their title. A serving of veggie chips isn’t a healthy substitute for fresh, frozen, or even canned veggies. One serving of veggies contains 25 calories and many vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals (plant chemicals that fight disease). Once the veggies are processed into chips, many of the vitamins and plant chemicals are destroyed. This leaves you with a food that’s much higher in calories and fat with fewer nutrients.

Most varieties of veggie chips contain mostly corn flour or potato, with small amounts of vDo you think you are giving your family a healthy snack?  Think again....eggie powder or puree mixed in.  Many of these chips are made of vegetable flour and don’t contain any real vegetables at all!  Although they may have spinach powder mixed in to give them the green color, so if they do contain veggies, the essential vitamins such as A and C that are found in vegetables are lost in the processing of these chips, so they don’t offer much in the way of nutrition.

Most of these chips are high in fat, calories and sodium. An ounce of veggie chips has 150 calories — the same as potato chips! Potato chips only have a gram or two more fat.

Who wants fat and calories and a lot more sodium?   Plus, veggie chips, on average, cost 30 percent more than potato chips!

From one mom to another, just how healthy are these?  You may be surprised! So don’t be fooled thinking you are serving your children a “healthy snack” when actually you are serving them a snack of fat and calories!  If you feel as though you want a healthy snack, then slice up your own potatoes and give them real food.   I like to use Kale chips which are easy to make, and other veggies.  If you don’t want to make them, then check your local whole foods market or other organic store for dried green beans, okra and other healthy alternatives.

MY EXPERIENCE:  I wanted to take it first hand to experience it before my customers did.  With the first dose, I took 45 minutes before lunch.  I felt full even before lunch and could only eat 1/2 cup of chili.  I felt as though I had ate a steak dinner with a baked potato.  I felt the same way throughout the afternoon, and didn’t take another dosage because I didn’t feel as though I needed it.  In fact I ate just a little out of habit.  I felt a little hungry around 10 but drank some water and headed for bed.

So in my experience, and everyone must work out their own, it seems like it is best to take 2 capsules 60 min before largest meal or both lunch and dinner.  My friend has lost 11 pounds in 5 days.  I am excited to report my progress to after a week since I just started yesterday, so be sure to subscribe to the left of this page so you can follow my update!   I believe this is a great way to start in weight loss and in helping you reach those last pounds or as a catalyst for healthy eating as you lose weight.

WHO IS BLOCK FOR?

People who….
* shows insulin resistance (metabolic syndrome)
* diabetic/pre diabetic
* overweight
* craves carbs or overconsumption of carbs

* On other Slim products:  If you were taking Probio prior to adding, DO NO STOP. Continue taking the probio during your test, as your system is relying on those digestive enzymes from it, and by adding the test product, you may get constipated.

(I would also venture to say this would include Biocleanse. Don’t stop taking that either. Our appetites are once again changing, and when they do, it puts our digestive system up in arms! Focus on your probio and your cleanse, drinking plenty of water to help keep your system functioning properly.)”

“I am allergic to shellfish I have NO issues”

“I am using Block. My allergy to shellfish is I just get itchy. I myself have no problems at all due to shellfish allergy.”

Does someone with an iodine allergy need to avoid because of the iodine?

“I am allergic to iodine and when I tried to take 4 in a day I itched from head to toe. I got off completely and started back with 1 a day and had no reaction to iodine. I am now up to 2 a day. One before lunch and one before dinner”

“6 days on, Triplex too, only taking one a day because of iodine allergy, will increase tomorrow, a couple of pounds down, I will measure later this week, but I can tell some inches are going…… yeah!”

“I was also allergic to ivp dye which is an iv of iodine contrast for a radiological test. I didn’t have any issues but started with one only and at lunch time incase I had an issue and I had Benadryl on stand by”

“I am allergic to topical iodine. I have been doing one a day so far. No problems yet .

Gluten Free – It is!

“Gluten free here and no problems”

“I have no problems from the gluten.

“I have severe Gluten Allergy and had no problems with the Block at all”

Block and Diabetes:

“I am type II and have been a tester. All going good so far.”

Block and pregnant/ Nursing Mothers:

Label says not intended for pregnant and nursing mothers so they would definitely need to get doctor’s approval.

“In order for a product to be labeled safe for pregnancy and nursing it has to go through FDA testing I believe. For example, melatonin has a class C pregnancy/nursing rating in the Lactation Guide and Davis Drug Guide. It’s only a C because it’s never been tested. No supplements or vitamins are tested. So, it may very well be safe, but you’ll need an ok from your OB if you’re wanting something definitive. More testimonies pouring in over this fantastic product for WEIGHT LOSS!

I will say that iodine is HIGHLY important for fetal development, nursing babies and moms and Breast health!”

“I researched all the ingredients before starting. I am nursing. It has not made any difference in my supply, my babies mood or sleep habits or digestion.”

“I’m also nursing and have been using the product. I feel like it’s fattened up my milk which is good for me! I got sick a month ago and have had thin milk since then. Hasn’t changed my babies mood, sleep, or appetite.”

(Who is it NOT for:

People with hypoglycemic symptoms, or history of hypoglycemia. (It’s important to understand the InSea2 basically turns “off” the chemical reaction component in our bodies that turn the carbs we ingest into glucose.)

NOTE from another Ambassador:  It appears that some people are associating the name BLOCK with a binding agent that attaches to molecular structures in the gut without discriminating, rendering them too big to be absorbed into the bloodstream by the intestine, and therefore later passed on into the stool.

To be clear: this is NOT the mechanism of action of BLOCK. instead, the active ingredients (white kidney bean extract and insea2/brown seaweed) work by neutralizing the effects of the digestive enzymes that are released by the pancreas in response to a carb load entering the duodenum (initial 1/3 of small intestine).

The therapeutic effect achieved by BLOCK is NOT a result of binding to food so that it later passes on unabsorbed by the intestine into the stool. instead, it is achieved by BLOCK decreasing the ability of digestive enzymes to break down carbohydrates into smaller, more simple forms of sugar that are easily absorbed by the intestine.

There’s no “binding” or “blocking” of essential nutrients.  The good news is that BLOCK DOES NOT prevent the absorption of ALL carbohydrates. instead, it only prevents the absorption of EXCESS carbohydrates “by up to 48%.”

It  should be noted that the active ingredient in BLOCK (inseam) has also been shown to produce an increased sensation of fullness in individuals by reducing the post-meal glycemic peak and allowing for a slower blood-glucose response, while also contributing to a decrease in the next-meal’s caloric intake. this sensation of fullness has been confirmed and experienced firsthand by many of us that are already taking the product.

As for any concern regarding the nutritional value of carbohydrates that might’ve otherwise been absorbed in the absence of BLOCK, rest easy in knowing that the “nutritional value” of carbohydrates is evident everywhere in the form of an obesity epidemic here in the states.

Not absorbing all of the carbs that you eat has nothing at all to do with being undernourished, especially considering that obesity everywhere actually proves that we are essentially over-nourished with carbs in our society.

So, the take-home message here is very simple: if you’re worried about not absorbing enough carbs and later storing them as fat, then avoid this product for sure.

Belly Fat Test – Which Belly Fat Do You Have?

Choose your belly fat!  What other signs to look for in helping you choose your belly fat remedy. What kind of belly do you have?  Did you know there are 4 different types of belly fat?  I know that sounds funny but if we look around there is belly fat everywhere and as women we tend to gain belly fat as we get older.

But did you know that there are actually four different types of belly fat and depending upon which you have (and it could be a combination) would affect what measures need to be taken to get rid if it?

All four types are created by an underlying hormone imbalance. And you can have hormonal imbalance in more than one area. Hormone imbalances can affect your sleep cycles, carbohydrate cravings, and fat burning. Understanding how hormones affect your body and the healing process enables you to get healthier faster and make sure that your diet, exercise and supplement regimen are going to effectively address the specific hormones you are dealing with and get rid of the belly faster.

The shape of your body is an important clue to what is happening to your organ and hormone health and how those things impact your ability to both gain and lose weight.

Each body shape has a dominant organ or gland that effects hormonal health  – which impacts weight gain as well as the anatomical location of where that weight is deposited.

You have probably noticed that some folks have all their weight in their mid-section, some have the weight around their thighs and buttocks,  some people are thin all over except for the “pot belly” they show, while some people have weight distribution all over their body.

Let’s look at each body type and understand the differences:

So, let’s talk about the 4 types and which Plexus products would be helpful.

If you or your spouse has a "pot belly" do you know this is a "liver belly"?  Find out how to get rid of it here!   Find out what belly you have here.1) LIVER BELLY:  Frequently seen in men as they age, but can be seen in women too. The typical image for people who store fat due to liver problems is the so-called pot belly: thin arms and legs, lots of fat sticking out in the abdominal area.


People with this belly type often complain of digestive problems, bloating, flatulence, as well as mid back pain and soreness without any apparent reason. Right shoulder pain might also appear.

This pattern is more frequent in men, but women may have this belly type as well.  How does the liver belly appear? Because people in this category wake up with low blood sugar levels after fasting overnight.

Normally, in healthy adults, blood sugar levels rise in the morning, but in people with liver belly, blood glucose is lower in the morning, irritability is higher and hunger doesn’t disappear after eating. This happens because bile isn’t released properly and food isn’t broken down as it should, so these people feel hungry after eating and crave for sugars, as a result of their low energy levels.

Solution to lowering the amount of fat in the abdominal area for people in this group: focus on restoring your liver’s functioning, and eat more proteins, as these help keeping blood sugar levels under control. Replace simple carbs with complex ones, coming from fruits and veggies, and eliminate soda and alcoholic beverages from your menu. Your liver needs to detox for you to lose the liver belly, so water should become your favorite beverage.

The only way to get rid of a liver belly is to get your liver function back on track. Eat more proteins, as these help keeping blood sugar levels under control.

Replace simple carbs with complex ones, coming from fruits and veggies, and eliminate soda and alcoholic beverages from your menu. Your liver needs to detox for you to lose the liver belly, so water should become your favorite beverage along with a fresh squeezed lemon in a glass of water first thing in the morning before you eat or drink anything else.

Did you know there are different types of belly fat?  Which one are you?
Which products might help?


Plexus Slim: to balance your blood sugar and reduce sugar cravings. Taken first thing in the morning after your lemon or squeeze lemon in your plexus slim, this could relieve morning irritability.


BLOCK: Block is a great way to keep blood sugar levels in check post meal and prevents carbohydrates and sugar from being stored as fat.  If you eat a large lunch or evening meal, then 1-2 capsules 30-60 min before the meal will help.


Probio5 and Biocleanse: Biocleanse can be taken between meals, and Probio 5 at night.  Because this belly type has frequent digestive complaints, Probio5 and Biocleanse could help alleviate that distress while balancing intestinal flora.

Thyroid Belly, do you have one?  Find out what kind of belly you have here and how to get rid of it.2) THYROID BELLY:  For thyroid belly friends, predominately women, the fat is usually distributed throughout the entire body, from neck and shoulders to legs, and the accumulation of excess weight is caused by an abnormal dominance of estrogen.

Estrogen dominance wreaks havoc in many ways (thyroid, adrenal, fatigue, fertility, body pain, etc.)

Too much estrogen slows down the thyroid and causes weight gain, a common complaint of those with hypothyroidism. But it is not limited to weight.

There are over 300 hypothyroid symptoms.
Thyroid belly individuals have cravings for sweets and fats, have saggy skin on their arms and tend to have thinner outer eyebrows. They tend to lose hair, to have brittle fingernails and have a poor circulation and cold extremities.

Your best chance of getting rid of the thyroid belly is to restore the functioning of this gland and normalize the levels of estrogen. Women are more likely to get this type of fat, but men can have it as well.


Which products might help?


Plexus Slim: chromium and alpha-lipoic acid have a beneficial action on thyroid function. Additionally, it could help stem the cravings for sweets and fats this group battles.
Probio5: this would be a great addition because thyroid disease is thought to be intimately connected with gut health.
Biocleanse: this is a great option because so many hypothyroid people struggle with constipation as a result of energy being down regulated, along with metabolism.
X Factor : X Factor contains Thiamine. Thiamine is one of the B vitamins, known as B1. Its main responsibility is to change carbohydrates into energy and it also helps with the digestion of proteins and fats. Thiamine is necessary for proper release of hydrochloric acid in our stomachs, which is required for proper protein digestion. Most people with thyroid belly have low stomach acid or do not release any stomach acid. X factor could be helpful because it is formulated with aloe, which increases nutrient absorption by as much as 400% .

Do you have a saggy belly, you may have this type of belly fat.3.) ADRENAL BELLY: Are you under chronic stress? It could be from anything … a bad marriage, struggling finances, a difficult job situation, troubled children, becoming a caregiver for a parent or a handicapped child, battling a chronic illness, etc.. These individuals are often very type A, achievers, driven, find it hard to say no etc.

People in this category typically gain weight if they undergo stressful periods, and the belly fat tends to cause a saggy abdomen, but can also become the visceral or hard fat that is deep within the body. Your bodily cortisol concentrations are controlled by an enzyme that’s located in fat cells, with visceral cells having more of these enzymes than subcutaneous cells. “Having higher levels of these enzymes in your abdominal fat contributes to obesity because greater amounts of cortisol are being produced”, says Christine A. Maglione-Garves in the University of New Mexico article, “Cortisol Connection.”

“Accumulating fat and higher cortisol levels in the body also are associated with a higher appetite, sugar cravings and weight gain”, says Maglione-Garves. Sustained periods of stress make both men and women in this group gain large amounts of fat around their waist, and this leads to low back pain, general fatigue and even fibromyalgia.


Common symptoms associated with cortisol excess: poor sleep patterns, poor memory, brain fog, worry excessively and often crave for salty foods at night. People with adrenal belly are irritable and edgy most of the time.


The best solution would be to eliminate as much stress as possible, but in our society that is easier said than done. Because blood sugar and cortisol have a very intimate relationship, keeping your blood sugar balanced is imperative. This can be achieved by eating a protein rich snack 2 hours before going to bed.


Which products might help?


Plexus Slim: contains chromium. Chromium has been found to have a profoundly nourishing effect on adrenal function. Sugar cravings are a common component of adrenal dysfunction and getting them under control is key to getting your adrenals healthy again.


BLOCK: cravings for simple carbohydrates like salty chips and baked potatoes are quite common for adrenal belly types. Getting those cravings under control, but also reducing any post meal blood sugar spikes would be a great option. Cortisol and blood sugar work closely together in the body to provide adequate energy. When cortisol is too high it is not uncommon for people to experience blood sugar challenges.
Probio5: as with everything else, a healthy gut is important for overall health and well-being. Candida overgrowth is often and underlying factor in adrenal dysfunction whether from overuse of antibiotics or diminished immunity from stress. Adding probio5 could help restore the healthy balance of intestinal flora.

Biocleanse: All stress states increase the rate at which the body uses up magnesium. In his blog, Dr. James Wilson suggests that individuals with adrenal issues increase their intake of this important mineral, which plays a role in the function of more than 300 enzymes in the body. Magnesium is a highly nourishing and calming mineral. Magnesium is found to be deficient in most people, but especially those impacted by chronic stress. Biocleanse is formulated with both magnesium and vitamin C, both of which have been found to benefit adrenal function.


X Factor: X factor has a potent combination of B vitamins, including Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5) can help nourish the adrenal glands and return the cortisol production back to normal. Vitamin B5 converts into a substance called acetyl co-enzyme A, a precursor to all the steroid hormones.
Vitamin C plays a major role across all cells in the body, providing a powerful antioxidant effect in all water-soluble areas of the body. The adrenal glands require a continual supply of the nutrient in order to produce cortisol, making vitamin C supplementation highly relevant to sufferers of chronic stress.

article-page-main-ehow-images-a07-ln-2o-diets-pearshaped-body-800x8004.) OVARY BELLY: Obviously, this is only in women and usually looks like saddlebags and lower stomach fat. Estrogen excess is the cause of this type of belly, and women are more likely to start storing fat in the mentioned areas after giving birth, due to hormonal changes and estrogen spikes.


Women with Ovary Belly are very likely to have heavy periods, facial hair, frequent acne outbreaks and headaches, to suffer from bloating, PMS, depression and ovarian cysts. Lower back pain and hip pain, as well as knee pain during the menstrual period are very likely to appear. Water retention also occurs during the cycle, along with a low libido, hot flashes, mood swings and night sweats.


The solution in this case is to balance the hormonal levels and fix the ovarian cysts, if present.


How Plexus might help?


Plexus Slim: Balancing blood sugar is very important in balancing hormone levels. Sugar has been shown to increase estrogen, so getting those cravings under control would be helpful.


BLOCK: women in this group frequently mention Cravings for carbohydrates and sugar. Block’s patented ingredient InSea2 has been shown to reduce post meal blood sugar spikes by 48%. It also helps prevent carbohydrates and sugar from being stored as fat. Additionally, BLOCK contains Iodine and Iodine has a proven rule in helping lower excess estrogen levels.


Probio5 and Biocleanse: Your body only has one way to “waste” or eliminate excess hormones and that is through regular, daily bowel movements. Chronic constipation is a frequent complaint in women with estrogen dominance. Food that remains in the intestinal track too long is likely to create issues with disrupted bacterial balance and nutrient absorption. Because Plexus Biocleanse and Probio5 are formulated to work synergistically to restore gut health and intestinal balance, the addition of these to products could be helpful.
