Thermojetics Instant Herbal Beverage You know, I’ve been using Herbalife products everyday for over 3 years and I have just become accustomed to how I feel and it’s “normal” for me.

So a catastrophe happened this week. I placed my order for my personal products last week (BEFORE I was due to run out of  two of the items I use most – my shake and Thermo).

Long story short – there was a techincal hitch with the ordering system and as I hadn’t realised there was no order confirmation email, my order was lost to the ether without me chasing it up. So I finally realised and placed the order on Friday but it meant………… I RAN OUT!!!!!!!!!!!

I snacked more over the weekend than I have since I was first breastfeeding and needed small meals all the time! I had noticeably less energy than normal and strangely I felt both uncomfortably bloated AND less full without my usual Breakfast Shake to start the day. I can’t tell you how relieved I was when the doorbell rang yesterday and the courier was standing there with my delivery (not bad – ordered Friday and it arrived Monday morning from Holland!).

So this morning I started the day with my favourite – a hot Thermo with a teaspoon of honey (local, of course) and I can totally feel the difference already! Look out housework – here I come!!!!!!!

While piling on the layers is one way to keep the winter chill away, certain foods can help warm us from the inside. Warm soups and hot beverages are a natural, but some foods actually stimulate heat production more than others.

As temperatures drop, appetites perk up. The cold, dark days of winter often bring on cravings for hearty comfort foods, warm beverages, and spicier dishes that held less appeal during the warm summer months. Our biology drives us to consume more calories in case food should become scarce, and to add a little extra padding to help us stay warm. But unlike our ancient ancestors, we live in heated homes and food is readily available – so we don’t need to pack away those extra calories.

“Whenever we eat and digest a meal, the body temperature rises – in a process called diet-induced thermogenesis, or DIT for short,” said Dr. Luigi Gratton, vice president of medical affairs at Herbalife. “But some foods stimulate heat production more than others. High protein foods, for example, increase DIT more than starchy or fatty foods, so they are more ‘warming,'” adds Gratton.

Pungent ingredients – like spicy ginger, chili, pepper and garlic – can aid circulation and generate warmth.

We’re more inclined to drink fluids when the weather is hot but we need plenty of fluids in the winter to warm and humidify cold, dry winter air.

So, let your warm winter coat warm you up from the outside, and try these tips to generate some heat from the inside out:

* Protein-rich dishes fuel the furnace to keep us warm. But choose low-fat proteins – fish, poultry and lean meats, or protein powder in soups or oatmeal – to avoid excess fat and calories.
* Turn to warm teas and soups to help hydrate you and keep air passages moisturized.
* Add an extra dash of spices and seasonings to your winter dishes.
* If you catch a cold or the flu, don’t forget the chicken soup. Studies show that it works better than other hot liquids to speed up the flow of mucus. It’s thought that the traditional aromatic seasonings in the soup – such as onion and pepper – travel in the vapors and help to open up clogged nasal passages.

I published Emma C’s before and “half-way” pictures a few days ago. This is what Emma had to say about her decision to use Herbalife, how she is finding it, and her results so far:

I am getting married in December this year and don’t want to be a fat bride so knew it was time to get serious about losing weight!! I was in a position where my weight was spiraling out of control, I was wearing size 20/22 clothes and doing no exercise, skipping meals and sitting at a desk from dawn til’ dusk! When I did eat, my portion sizes were enormous and I would end up finishing other people’s food! Shocking!

When I first spoke to Sarah and she mentioned Herbalife, I was a little skeptical, I had tried loads of diets in the past and never managed to stick to them…..(I have zero willpower!!)…Sarah explained how Herbalife works and made it sound easy!! 5 months on, I have to say – IT IS EASY!!! (more…)

In the current heat, or if you are going on holiday, it is especially important that you pay attention to the amount of water you are drinking each day. I have written about the health benefits of correct hydration a number of times – here are some reminders for you:

  • Hydration in the human body is paramount to our health and our energy level is greatly impacted by the amount of water that we drink. As little as a 5% drop in body fluids will cause a 25-30% loss of energy in most people. Proper hydration maintains healthy bodily function and prevents fatigue. (more…)
