Yes, Darlings! Apple Cider Vinegar is the Talk of the Town!

Well, I just had to share this. I have known about it for over a year when I had spoken to a guy that used to do repairs around the house in the Hollywood area for Doris Day. Yes! Anyhow, she supposedly swears by using Apple Cider Vinegar every day for medicinal and anti-aging purposes. According to many that have met her in person recently in L.A., she still looks damn good.

So here is what I found online for you, showing that many other health experts think the same....and it does aid in weight loss (which is my favorite part).

"Apple cider vinegar and weight loss

It helps to detoxify the liver which plays an important role in weight loss. There are historical facts that Egyptians took apple cider vinegar for weight loss. Some claim ACV speeds up the metabolism while some claim it burns the calories to reduce appetite. To lose weight just take 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar, mixed in water, before every meal.

ACV is also available in tablets and capsules. According to some nutritionists the combination of apple cider with kelp, vitamin B6 and lecithin is much more effective for weight loss than ACV alone."

Don't you just LOVE Doris Day......

MOVING!#@* is GREAT Exercise

Sorry, boys and girls, but I have been out of the loop for a couple of weeks due to a massive move. Offices and the entire home has moved to another abode, so I am sorry that I neglected you. But thank you for the emails and the support from you all!
I have moved to a true 1950's time capsule. It's truly remarkable and I am very happy. I will be shopping for a 1950's-1960's BIG house in the next few months again, as things have definitely changed for the better. So this move is good, even though it has been laced with bad vibes and stress out of my control. But everything is fixable.
Well, my post for today has to do with moving, which sucks and is a pain in the ass. But the good thing is that you get fantastic constant exercise and boy, do you deserve that beer or chilled glass of Chardonnay at the end of the day! Plus, during times like that, you can afford the extra naughty indulgence, like a tiki-inspired adult beverage or pizza (just to reward yourself with just one extra cheat meal in the week).
The other point I would like to address is that we are heading into summer shortly and with heat comes the comfort of eating less. I tell you, it has been in the 90's for the last couple of days and it will continue for the next few days before we get some relief with high 80's here in Lost Vegas. You DO feel better eating lighter and cutting down on breads and such in this kind of heat. Therefore, you can still wear little outfits and not have to worry about bloat on top of the heat.
P.S. Ellipticals are a BITCH to move! But it's worth it.
P.P.S. Stay tuned, I will be letting you in on some "cheat" food and recipes that are healthy and good for you.
