Double Chin Gone with a Juice Fast

Double Chin Gone with a Juice Fast

Can it possibly be true?  Yes indeed.

Are you wanting to get rid of jowls or a double chin? I wouldn’t recommend a prescription drug. That’s what I see promoted from the plastic surgeon’s office that’s down the hall from where I get my hair done. What kind of side effects would you get from a drug that targets fat under your chin? I’m all for natural remedies. But could juice fasting really melt away fat in odd places like under the chin? There are all sorts of reports about green juices melting belly fat. So why not face fat? Well, you can’t argue with someone’s success!

Here’s Raoul’s story firsthand:

“I want to let you know that we tried one of your one-week juice fasts last year. I’d had a strange “jowlyness” under my chin for a while, like a sort-of double chin or fattiness. This disappeared completely after the juice fast and has not returned since. Amazing result!!  All the best and thanks again for the excellent work you do!”        —Raoul

If you have some fat pockets you’d like to melt away, why not give juice fasting a try? My 5 Day Juice Fassst starts Monday. You can sign up today and get your produce shopping done over the weekend.

Grow Hair With Ginger… And So Much More

Have you jumped on the ginger train yet? Ginger is the latest superfood everyone is talking about. It can help with a host of issues including hair growth. It’s been used for centuries but, let’s face it, how much ginger actually makes it into the average person’s diet? Today we’ll take a look at what this amazing spice can offer and give you some simple ways to integrate it into your diet.

The Benefits of Ginger

Ginger has been used for centuries. It’s one of the most well-known spices when it comes to natural home cures. The most popular use for ginger as a home remedy is probably its use for nausea. Ginger naturally settles the stomach. It’s the secret behind why your grandma suggested ginger ale when you were not feeling well.  By the way, you can make your own healthy ginger ale with sparkling water, a tablespoon of ginger juice, and stevia to taste.

Ginger has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties. One study found that people who took 2 grams of ginger a day saw improvement in muscle pain over the course of 11 days. Another study focused on osteoarthritis pain. Once again, researchers saw marked improvement in terms of pain for patients who took a ginger extract.

In addition to its anti-nausea and pain management benefits, ginger has also been associated with the following:

There have also been studies linking it to the possible improvement of brain activity and potentially as a way to prevent some forms of cancer. Research into this powerful herb continues, but it’s already proven itself as a worthwhile addition to any diet.

How to Get More Ginger Into Your Diet

The strong taste of ginger puts some people off using it as an everyday spice, but there are plenty of ways to fit it into your diet.


The easiest way to get copious amounts of fresh, raw ginger into your diet is by adding it the juices you make. (See the recipe below.) Those people who are new to adding ginger to their juices may find even a small amount quite overpowering. However, over time, the more you use it, the more you’ll love it.  You may find that juices without ginger just don’t have the kick you want after a while of using it. Adding ginger to your juices gives them a zingy, fresh, spicy flavor. I love this in the morning, since I don’t drink coffee. It wakes me up! I can feel my whole body becoming energized with the ginger.

If I ever start to come down with a cold, my go-to recipe to kick-start my immune system and fight-back is the ‘lemon ginger blast.’ Take a couple of lemons, a large chunk of ginger, a couple of carrots, a peeled orange (omit if you are sugar sensitive), and a lime. Some of my other favorite recipes include celery, apple, and ginger, and carrots, beet, and ginger. Make the whole process easier by making bags of fresh fruit, veggies, and ginger ahead of time. Keep them in the fridge ready to be juiced each morning, or whenever you’re in need of a little spice in your life.

Stir-Fry Veggie

A little ginger goes a long way and it makes the perfect complement for stir-fry vegetables and lean meats. Simply grate a small amount of ginger into your pan as you’re cooking along with fresh garlic and the combination will bring out the best in your vegetable dish.

Ginger Tea or Lemonade

Making ginger tea or a ginger infused lemonade or limeade is another super simple way to increase the amount of ginger you consume. This allows you to tailor how much ginger you want based on personal taste.

Ginger Extracts

While getting your ginger by actually using the spice is preferred, the taste simply isn’t for everyone. If you’re simply not a fan of the taste, but want more ginger in your diet, consider a tincture or extract. These can offer the same benefits without needing to use the spice as often.

Ginger for Life

These simple steps will make it easy for you to gain the benefits of ginger. At the same time, you’ll be able to explore all the different foods ginger can complement. From using it to season vegetables to creating glazes and marinates for meats, ginger is a versatile and delicious way to boost your health through clean eating.
