Valeo Deluxe Speed Rope Review

I love practicing personal fitness in my own house and I usually execute a number of different fitness activities to keep myself fit and healthy. Recently, I watched on TV a fitness exercise performed with the jumping rope and I instantly loved it. Right away, I thought that for my personal fitness training, skipping would be a really beneficial activity not only as fun and recreation but also as a cardiovascular workout.

I so much wanted to start practicing the jumping rope aerobic exercise in my own home. My first thought was to find and buy a really effective and of high value jump rope. Although this particular market was completely unknown to me, I was immediately attracted to the “Valeo Deluxe Speed Rope”. But could that jump rope give me an effective cardiovascular exercise? Is it made of good material? I just needed to get into the detail of this jump rope and find out more about it.

How does the “Valeo Deluxe Speed Rope” work?

In the video below, you can watch two guys who describe in every detail the "Valeo Speed Rope". They explain the features of this jump rope which make it unique, they show how to adjust the length of the rope and they finally proceed and give a demonstration.

Review: Nourish™ Skin Tight™ Body Firming Lotion

When I was asked if I wanted to review Faber Products’ Nourish™ Skin Tight™ Body Firming Lotion, I agreed with equal measures of skepticism and hope.  I recalled reading an article a while back that asserted that no topically-applied product could penetrate deeply enough to achieve the skin-tightening effects attributed to these types of lotions.  On the other hand, the Director of Design & Development of Faber Products had contacted the editor of WeightLossTriump.com and suggested that a review of his company’s body firming lotion might be of interest to the website’s readers.  Only unbiased reviews are posted on WeightLossTriumph.com, an independent blog focusing on diets and weight loss, so I reasoned that the Director must be fairly confident that his company’s product actually works.

ExerBeat Review

Reading the manufacturer’s enticing opening line product description -“Ever used the following excuse: “I’m too busy to go to the gym!”- I knew this Wii game has been designed with people like me in mind! I actually DO have a gym membership but I hardly use it because there is always something more pressing to do: cook dinner, take my little one to a play area, and watch a programme on T.V..... Anyway, I also dread looking at over toned women lifting huge weights in the gym and feel rather inadequate when my two sets of 12 lunges leave me exhausted. So I much prefer the option of working out from home where its only the virtual trainer who can have a go at my fitness level!

How Diet DNA Testing May Assist in Weight-loss

Dieting is mostly an unending cycle of losing weight momentarily and regaining it within a few weeks. There are numerous diet plans in existence each with different success stories (or stories of utter failure). The question which consistently baffles dieters is “which diet plan suits me best and which will work?” Nothing is more disheartening than rigorous and careful dieting efforts all in vain. The reply to the question posed may probably lie in your DNA. Latest innovations and discoveries in genetics and DNA testing have revealed that the best diet is that which is suited to the personal DNA makeup of a given individual.

Swiss Miss Hot Cocoa Mix Review

Winter is here and with it an undeniable urge to keep warm by drinking scrumptiously yummy but almost always too rich in calories hot drinks. Even my ever-so-careful-with-his-diet hubby succumbed to the temptation this past weekend and drank unashamedly half a gallon of warm chocolate milk. So as you can imagine, the Swiss Miss, conjuring in its name dear memories of Alpine holidays, with its more down-to-earth promise of a deliciously low in calories drink, seemed all of a sudden a very good idea!

For whom has Swiss Miss Hot Cocoa been produced?

The producer reassures the consumer that it has been especially designed for every hot chocolate connoisseur with a diet conscience. Swiss Miss promises to be rich in taste and flavour (hence the European hint in the name), high in calcium (one sachet contains as much as one glass of milk) but very low in fat and sugar, with only 25 calories per serving.

The product seems to have been designed for people on the go who prefer reaching out for a sachet from their bag and the fat-free milk jug in the office, female students and young professionals most likely. It also entices the lifelong dieters who are adamant about the calorie intake and religiously count every gram of fat and sugar they take.

7 Fat Melting Tips to Change Your Life!

The fact is that losing weight is difficult for many people.  The great thing is that there are plenty of ways to trick the body into burning stored up fat.  Whether you are looking to just lose a few pounds or fit into last year’s jeans, we have seven great tips that will have you looking great in no time. 

As we grow older the body’s metabolism begins to slow down, which just means that we have to work harder to shed that extra five or ten pounds that get packed on throughout the year.

1) Jump Start Your Metabolism

Green tea’s natural ingredients boost metabolism.  Try grabbing some green tea instead of a soda for lunch; it can also replace coffee in the mornings.  A faster metabolism will begin shedding pounds naturally.  Iron is important too; this mineral aides in getting oxygen to the cells, which also enhances metabolism.  Water is another metabolism booster when drinking in heavier quantities at the same time, especially cold water.  For breakfast and dinner try drinking about two glasses of water (17 ounces) and you’ll effectively jump start your metabolism and start burning extra calories.

How to Lose Weight Over the Holidays

Diet and fitness enthusiasts do not really like the winter holiday season. This is because unlike other holidays such as Halloween, Easter or Valentine's Day, the winter holiday lasts for many weeks. It is also characterized by more food, cookies, potlucks and parties. In addition, other activities such as volunteering, buying gifts, decorating, cooking and party hopping take up the usual time set aside for preparing healthy meals or going to the gym. This makes it difficult for the dieter to keep track of their food and exercise on a more regular basis to boost their health and change the shape of their bodies.

Christmas Dinner

Therefore, a lot of willpower and commitment will be needed to overcome so many challenges and temptations. You have to stay dedicated to the original plan and set small daily objectives. The following are 20 tips to help you repel weight gain or lose weight by the turn of the year:

1. Track your food consumption

Carefully track your daily food intake. This includes all your meals plus the food gifts, snacks, small fixes and free food samples that you take in the course of the day. Such foods contain "hidden" calories that could easily contribute to weight gain.
