Facts about Bananas and Banana Peel!

Image

  • Thanks to its oil, rubbing the inside of a banana peel on a mosquito bite (or other bug bite) or on poison ivy will help keep it from itching and getting inflamed.
  • To whiten teeth naturally, rub the inside of a banana peel on your teeth for about two minutes every night. If you gargle with salt water, this will heighten the effect. Expect results in about two weeks. It works because of the effect of the potassium, magnesium, and manganese in the banana peel.
  • Bananas make great conditioner that helps restore dry, damaged hair. Mash a banana and add a tablespoon of heavy cream and a tablespoon of honey to the mixture. Then apply it to dry hair, cover your hair with a shower cap, and then wrap your head in a warm towel. Leave it on for up to an hour and then rinse thoroughly with warm water before shampooing.
  • Rubbing a banana peel on your forehead can help cure a headache.

Exante Diet: Update

Image

So it’s been a few days and it has been a challenge.

“Eating 1 normal meal and replacing the rest with the Exante products has been difficult. Day 2 (didn’t even last a week) I woke up and had one of their shakes for breakfast. I chose Vanilla and mixed with 250ml of water. It didn’t taste too bad, you could just about taste the vanilla, but it tasted a little bit more of powder.

The shakes are filling…. for about an hour. I felt as though I hadn’t eaten for an entire day. I started feeling extremely light headed that eventually I had to eat something solid.

Finally after feeling like I was going to pass out at the thought of doing this for another 3 weeks, I decided that I will eat 2 meals a day, and have a shake and bar for dinner followed by a late evening snack of Cottage Cheese (it’s less fattening than eating anything else that late).

I haven’t lost any weight just yet but we will see – it’s only been a week.

Along with the meal supplements I am training everyday for at least 30 minutes. Cardio and Weight Training!”
