Lose Weight with Lipozene

Published November 28, 2019 by Maryanne


It’s now the holiday season and you know what that means—parties, parties, and more parties! Even those of us, like myself, who are conscious of what we eat and work out regularly, can pack on a few pounds at this time of year. (And it could be hard to lose if you live in an area where winters are long). It’s frustrating when you’re doing everything right yet your clothes are getting snug. You’ve been eating later than usual and skipping workouts because this season is just so damn busy!

Being of a healthy mindset, diet pills are out of the question. And excessive work-outs are just crazy. But, perhaps there’s an easy solution? Something more natural than a regular diet pill.

If you haven’t heard of Lipozene by now, perhaps it’s a supplement you may want to consider. It’s made with glucomannan; a dietary fiber extracted from the roots of elephant yam—also known as konjac root or devil’s tongue. You may have used konjac root without realizing, if you’re a fan of Miracle Noodles like I am! Glucomannan is also known to help alleviate constipation, maintain healthy cholesterol, and support healthy blood sugar levels. Other ingredients in Lipozene (gelatin, stearic acid, and magnesium) are fillers and stabilizers, which do not help you lose weight.

Since Lipozene is a water-soluble fiber, it expands, so you have the feeling of satisfaction in your tummy and obviously you’ll eat less. It also works like a probiotic, promoting good gut bacteria. That, in itself, is a plus to assisting in not gaining weight.

Lipozene  is a non-GMO product, caffeine free, and gluten-free ingredient.

Lipozene Side Effects

According to researchers, it’s a safe product if used as directed. Though Lipozene side effects  reported include stomach-aches, nausea, and diarrhea. Some claimed constipation even though it’s a product that should alleviate it! So, as a health advocate, I say to everyone, be your own judge. You can always take a low dose to start to see how your body reacts to it. The recommended dosage is two capsules, a half hour prior to meals, up to three times per day with an eight-ounce glass of water. NOTE: Do not take more than six capsules per day. And if you’re taking medications, consult your doctor before using.

Does Lipozene really work?

According to the Lipozene Reviews, there are mostly high ratings. On Amazon, ratings are lower.

Again, we’re all different, so if you think it’s worth a try, give it a shot. Their website offers a 30-day money back guarantee, excluding the $1.35 processing fee, if you are not satisfied with the product.

Lipozene is not dangerous, but personally, I wouldn’t use it indefinitely. Of course, weight loss would vary for each person, depending on your eating habits and lifestyle. If you’re already eating healthy and exercising regularly, you will most likely get the results you are seeking.

Or, if you’re like me, just keep eating those Miracle Noodles!

Last week I was honored to be a guest on Maryann Castello’s “Health & Wellness” show. Maryann was an awesome host. We spoke about my career, my three books (and upcoming book), music, health, and so much more! You might even hear your name mentioned!

The show was 1.5 hours long, but it went fast. Enjoy the You Tube video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VS3w8p-4nIk&feature=youtu.be

Hypnotherapy Works!

Published October 26, 2013 by Maryanne

SAM_2708Me with good friend and hypnotherapist, Scott Lea

I was heading up north today for my uncle’s funeral (which was truly a beautiful service) and on the way over I stopped at the Vitamin Shoppe in Little Falls to support my good friend Scott Lea who had a table set up.

Almost 10 years ago, I used Scott’s services because I was a mess — I was obsessed with health! Then I got on this kick where I was constantly worrying about my teeth. I thought they hurt every day and kept going to the dentist only to find nothing was wrong with my teeth. Weird, right?!

After a few sessions of hypnotherapy with Scott, my teeth stopped hurting — it was all my imagination! It was stress and being obsessed with my health that was doing me in. Stress is the worst thing for a person. You can eat all the organic food in the world, but if you’re not at peace with yourself, it’s not doing you an ounce of good!

Then two summers ago, I had a bit of a relapse, the health obsession started up again — this time with my eyes! I went to three different eye doctors to find nothing wrong (except that I’m near-sighted which is corrected with glasses or contact lenses, otherwise my eyes are healthy). I went to Scott again, and while this time it took a little longer to stop worrying, but I eventually did by using the subliminal CDs that Scott recorded for me.

Now I can honestly say I am worry free — and have been for quite some time.

Since relaxing and not stressing over health, I’ve become a much happier person — and now truly healthier!

It’s such a great feeling to get through the day without worrying about anything — not health, not people, not growing old, not my career — NOTHING! I just LIVE, happy, every day — and that is how life should be! (Note: The only time I was sad was when my 19-year-old cat died, and that’s understandable, obviously.)

There are over 200 known uses for hypnotherapy, some include: stop smoking, stress, pain control, insomnia, anxiety, phobias, weight loss, drug addiction, and eating disorders.
