SYNEDREX WARNING REVIEW: HARMFUL!!!

SYNEDREX

SYNEDREX

I have been a loyal fan and user of Hydroxycut SX-7, however, I got greedy as most humans tend to do. I have reached my desired weight but felt that I needed something stronger to energize me for toning up. This was a huge mistake. I already had a good product that was helping me achieve my goals which were to get energy to workout, give me mental focus on my workouts and my daily routines, and it kept me balanced in all aspects of my life.

Last week I went to Max Muscle rather than going to my usual spot, GNC. I asked the store rep what the best energy and fat burning supplement was. She told me that Synedrex was the best-seller at their store and I went ahead and purchased it. This has literally been the worst experience of my life! It says on the bottle to take one per day to test your endurance. I will tell you that I tried it for 4 days only to confirm that no other outside factors were contributing to my side effects.

I did lose weight while taking this pill. I have been an avid chef since my youth and I can tell you that the best part of my regular diet for the past 2 years was experimenting and creating new diet recipes that tasted amazing while building a discipline in the amount I eat daily. I was so excited because I had just gone to Lassens Organic Market and Whole Foods to purchase around $600 worth of pure, natural, and healthy ingredients for my monthly main grocery trip right after having my first dose of Synedrex in the morning. I have always seen grocery shopping trip to be just as exciting as any vacation or shopping spree. However, my trip was not so exciting.

About an hour after taking this pill, I felt tired, depressed, useless, unhappy, and even stranger, I was not hungry. I felt forced and disgusted at anything I saw during my time in these grocery stores. This is not like me at all! I have always loved food and no matter how fit or healthy you are, you need to eat and food gives you the calories and energy you need to survive. During these past 4 days, I have not only lost my appetite completely, I have experienced severe depression. Anyone who knows me, knows that I am the life of the party. I am a naturally annoyingly positive person and always active an upbeat.

I did not want to get out of bed. I did not want to cook (which is my passion), I did not want to go out, and even scarier, and I did not want to live. Again, I will tell you this is not like me and never has been. I was paranoid, scared, and felt that I would have a heart attack or die at any moment. I hate to admit it but I even had slightly suicidal thoughts and was hoping to just give up at any moment just so I do not feel the depressing effects of this pills. I was even afraid to sleep because I thought I would die in my sleep from a heart attack because my left arm was killing me and I felt something was squeezing my heart.

Synedrex should not be allowed on the market. I have tried several energy supplements, energy shots, powders, and they have their ups and downs. The worst I had ever experienced was the caffeine crash. That is totally fine, but I have never been useless and depressed for 4 days straight. I only took it the 4 days to make sure it had nothing to do with school, working out, or anything else. I felt weak and powerless. This pill should not be on the market at all, not even with a prescription. I am telling you all about this because it really happened to me and there are witnesses to my pain and depression. Losing weight and getting in shape can be fun and exciting. I loved making up new meals, exercise routines, drawing my charts, and shopping for my workout clothes and groceries.

What is the point of losing weight if you do not have the will to live or go about your daily life? I am a student and thank God I did not have school or work during the days I took these pills. I would not have been able to get out of bed because I really did not and my room-mates had to force me to eat and drink something but I only could once a day. I care about all of you and hope you never experience this. Please do not take Synedrex and if you have any questions about my effects and what happened in detail please leave a comment or email me.

Strawberry and Chocolate Pear Cupcake Recipe

strawberry and chocolate pear cupcakes

strawberry and chocolate pear cupcakes

Do you ever have stuff in your pantry that you have never used or hand no idea how to use? Sometimes, the best recipes come from mixing the only available ingredients you have left at home to make the most memorable meals and desserts. This is exactly what happened to me. It’s the end of the month and I was 1 day away from doing my monthly grocery shopping but decided to use up the last stuff I had to fill my sweet tooth during studying for 6 hours straight. This is my very own homemade  recipe for Strawberry and chocolate pear cupcakes and they are so moist. Who knew you could actually mix those two together but you can and most of the ingredients are substitutable by healthier, gluten free or fat free choice.

As per Kristianna Riley ‘s request, here is the recipe for the cupcakes I made last night. They were different and awesome.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 cups flour

  • 1/2 cup milk

  • 1 cup brown sugar

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1 egg

  • 1 tbsp vanilla

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1 egg

  • 1 stick butter

  • 1 large can of pears ( drain syrup)

  • 3 tbsp of syrup from pear can

  • 3 tbsp chocolate powder for half of mix after mixing

  • 2-3 tbsp strawberry milk powder or syrup for other half.

PREPARATION:

1. Preheat over to 350°
2. Mix all wet ingredients with blender including sugar, butter, and pears.
3. Sift dry ingredients into 2 large bowls.
( 1 for strawberry and 1 for chocolate)
4. Distribute half of the wet blend into one bowl and the other half in another bowl.
5. Add strawberry powder to one bowl and chocolate powder to other bowl and mix by hand with a fork.
6. Fill cupcake baking tray with cupcake wrappers.
7. Fill each cup 2/3 full.
8. You can mix left over batter for marble effect.
9. Bake for 25 minutes and let sit for 10 minutes.
10. Top cupcakes with Nutella and charamel or toppings and frosting of your choice.

TIPS:

1. This is not a very sweet cupcake and will be enjoyed by people who don’t like sweet stuff that much. The sweetness will mostly depend on the frosting and toppings.
2. Honey is a great and healthy glaze that I used for the strawberry cupcakes and would work just ad great on the chocolate.

3. Enjoy!!

Hydroxycut sx-7 review

hydroxycut

hydroxycut

So I started with the red bottle first. This supplement helps with endurance, mental focus, energy, for working out in the weight loss process. After 1 month, I found out they came out with Black Onyx, the black bottle. Its the sake as the red bottle but stronger for energy and focus. Its also doesn’t make your heart rate go ridiculously fast and shaky or jittery like other caffeine stimulants. Its the best product available but you do need to exercise and kept active to get the full benefits of it. I recommend you to start with the red bottle and move up to the black after a month only if you can handle and need the extra boost of energy. Both bottle contain 7 different never before combined ingredients to make the maximum sensory formula that has changed my life.

Superfood Powder For Your Inner Makeover

superfood-powder

generssentials pack green-superfood

superfood-powderI have been going on a non-stop health shopping spree all week trying to give myself a whole new inner and outer makeover. I think it started with my purchase of a vegan handbag at Nordstroms on Monday. Being the shopaholic I am, I noticed I started losing some more weight from being out shopping all over the city in the hot sun for a few days. I even purchased several skin cremes from Sephora which I will review later. Three days ago, I renewed my tanning subscription at my favorite tanning salon and realizing that I now live within jogging distance, I got up early, ate breakfast, put on my new SPF creme and jogged there. It was a lot of fun. When I got out, I decided to go to Lassens organic and whole foods market to get some greens to blend myself some green smoothies. As I walked around, I started noticing other stuff that I wanted to buy.

By the way, a market is still fair game for my impulsive shopping sprees, therefore, I will go nuts in one as easy as I would at The Grove. I noticed some containers that said raw food, greens, and superfood. They are powdered blends of all types of vegetables, greens, vitamins, fibers and several other beneficial ingredients for your body. I got ten packs, two of each brand to try out. I also got a giant jar of local raw honey, Black African soap, African Secret creme, Shea Butter Organic Shampoo and some spices. You blend one package with eight ounces of water which I did the first day. The second day, I blended it with chicken broth and the third day I added it to my chopped grilled chicken and lime juice. I must mention I got the original flavors and not the fruit ones. I ended up buying Amazing Grass Green Superfood Goji and Acai flavor which was a huge mistake.
I will not lie, the flavor was horrible and the smell almost made me sick. I tried to blend it with tomato sauce, yogurt, milk, curry, saffron, onions, garlic, and tons of other stuff..the flavor changed slightly but the smell remained.
I honestly only recommend the raw green original flavors because they are easier to blend with other flavors and do not have that strong smell. In fact, the very first packet from the bunch that I bought was called GenEssentials Greens. It was very subtle and easy to deal with as far as taste and smell and that is my top pick from them all. They helped speed up my digestive system, made my skin look healthier, and gave me tons of energy. The Vitamine Shoppe to sells Amazing Grass superfood in different flavors ranging from chocolate to vanilla chai in the eight ounce container for only $23.99. However, if you decide to take my advice, GenEssentials comes in a box with 15 packets for $21.99.

I cannot tell you all how happy and how much healthier I feel since I started using Superfood. I will make further updates after I finish my two-week detox plan.

DIY Chicken Somen Noodle Soup

Somen

Somen
Having been on a permanent diet for 3 weeks now, I still love food way too much to ignore how it tastes. I make up for that by taking longer and more complicated steps to make my meals as rich and delicious as possible. There is no need to go out and pay for these awesome DIY meals when you man make them. Chicken is a must in most of my meals and my liquid diet now consists of drinkable meals and soup. If any of you know me well enough, you will know how much I adore anything Japanese. Aside from Manga and Gyaru fashion, the food might even tops those two. I was going through my pantry trying to decide what new meal I would make and luckily, I found a new pack of Somen Noodles. This dish is rather quick but a bit complex and will not only fill you up but impress anyone you make it for. This is my personal recipe for a DIY chicken Somen noodle soup.

Here is what you will need:
1.5 inch thick stack of Somen noodles (bought looking similar to dry white angel hair pasta)
1 egg
1/2 cup of chopped raw, boneless chicken breast
4 leaves of a Brussels sprout
2 tbsp. soy sauce
1 tbsp. rice vinegar
1/2 tbsp salt
dash of cracked pepper
1 chopped green onion
2 cloves chopped garlic
1/2 tbsp. chopped ginger
dash of garlic salt
1 cup of water
1 tsp. chicken bullion/powder broth
2 tbsp. Japanese miso soup seasoning with dried seaweed

Preparation:

Cook the somen noodles in 2 cups of water and let boil of 3- 4 minutes. Immediately drain somen noodles and place them in a bowl of ice water. These noodles must remain cold until completion. Second, add 1/2 cup of water, chicken and all other ingredients to a small pot or sauce pan except for the egg, and half of the chopped green onion. Cover the pot and let cook at low medium heat for 12 minutes. If most or any water evaporates, add more at the end util it looks to be equal to 1 cup of water and mix it up until it warms up and turn off heat.
Take out a separate bowl and strain the somen noodles again from the ice and water, then place in the new bowl. Add the chicken soup on top. Crack one raw egg on top and garnish with a crack of black pepper and the remaining green onions. This somen noodle soup is eaten with chopsticks which will help control how fast you eat.
Serve as is and before eating, make sure to let your guests know to thoroughly mix the raw egg into the soup. The hop soup will cook then egg when it is mixed in and make tit thicker. Nothing makes DIY as exciting as this. Enjoy!

Lose 10 Pounds FAST !!!

After diet
Me after my Diet and still working on it

If most of my fans remember me from my episodes on “I Wish: Dream Factory”, I was a little most husky than I should have been. Until 3 weeks ago, I was at a whopping 125 pounds. After starting my proper diet of veggies, proteins, and yes…. OATMEAL and Flax Seed, I am down to 106 pounds. This is not a crash diet, you just have to limit your meals and set a meal time. You can lose 10 pounds fast!!! You just have to readjust your mindset a bit and learn to enjoy things differently. Now, clothing is good at hiding weight and true toning and defining, so I am aiming lose 16 more pounds to get to 90 pounds to reach my ideal weight for my height. That doesn’t mean I will be unhealthy, but you have to understand that 90 pounds of muscle is way better than 90 pounds of fat.

Before diet
Heavier Days enjoying fattening foods and Frapuccinos

I would be lying if I said that diet is the only thing that will get you to get a great body. You need at least 80 sit-ups and about 30 minutes of cardio a day to get your skin tight and all your body parts back into position. I have been so excited to be cooking with all these healthy ingredients since I started mt diet which I will include at the bottom. You can still enjoy your meals and take as long as you want to cook them but raw veggies will give you more energy than those energy drinks.

Collage pics
More weight, less weight, and useless dieting approaches. Me throughout the years.

If you don’t like raw veggies, cook some protein; 1/2 cup of beef, chicken or lamb, and then put them in the blender with your veggies or even chickpeas to make a meaty hummus paste or add more water to make it a soup. I have been making a lot of drinks with chicken broth and filling them with spinach, lettuce, greens, lettuce, etc. and adding vinegar, salt, lemon, and pepper.

I wish you all the best because this is just a long term lifetime change that will stay with you for years to come and have your energy as well as a great healthy body. Just find the taste that’s right for your diet and blend it. It makes it easier to digest. You also have to make sure they are healthy ingredients to equal a healthy diet that makes you happy.

  • Flax Meal or flax seed
  • Oatmeal (Check out my article about it)
  • Grilled Chicken/Thinly Slices sandwich chicken
  • Lettuce
  • Carrots

  • Almond Milk
  • Strawberries
  • High grade Italian pure Olive Oil

Protein Breakfast: Chicken, Brussels Sprouts, and Oatmeal.

Chicken Brussels Sprouts

Chicken Brussels Sprouts

Just because I am on a diet doesn’t mean that I will ever give up on eating a deeply flavorful and aromatic meal and you shouldn’t either. In fact, I think that if you put as much effort and creativity to your diet meals, enjoying the taste and getting used to the portions will get easier on you and your wallet. Not to mention, I have never seen a protein filled breakfast like this before. Truly a breakfast for Champions, I say.  This is one of those meals where I mentioned previously that I was so creeped out about how full and satisfied I felt for about 5 hours until I forced myself to eat a snack. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Try not to substitute any ingredients unless they are spices or a different green vegetable.

Chicken Brussels Sprouts 2

Calories: 410

Ingredients:

  • Half cup of boneless chicken breast
  • 3.5 tbsp. of whole grain oatmeal with flax seed
  • ¼ Cup of water
  • ¼ tsp. Salt
  • Pinch of cracked black pepper
  • 2 tbsp. Sliced almonds
  • 2 tsp. White vinegar
  • ¼ tsp. Garlic Salt
  • 1 tbsp. Soy sauce
  • 2 Garlic cloves finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp. Chopped onions
  • Non-fat Cooking Spray

Spray your pan with the cooking spray very lightly. Keep stove at medium heat and add the garlic and onions to pan. Then add the chicken, salt, and pepper and stir for about 2 minutes add all the other ingredients but leave the water for last. Make sure to mix everything up then add the water. Lower the heat to medium low and cover for 10-12 minutes. Uncover and stir around a bit more to see it is too dry. If dry add a few tablespoons of water and stir around. Then serve and top off with some extra sliced almonds. Lastly, make sure to drink tons of water to push this stuff out of your system. I know it sounds gross, but food is meant to be enjoyed temporarily and I hope that most of you don’t enjoy carrying around useless waste in your stomach for too long. Water make this process faster and less painful.

Tips for a Pleasant Transition into a Diet Lifestyle

Oatmeal

   

You might start to notice me newfound love for oatmeal if you continue to follow the diet and recipe section of my blogs. I have felt amazingly healthy, energized, and confusingly full. I recall ordering two orders of Mejboos Deyay (deep fried or baked chicken and mixed white and saffron basmati rice dish from Kuwait) from Freej Suwaileh almost every day for lunch. This is a pretty huge dish for someone of my size to eat, let alone two orders, plus three 7ups per meal. I barely felt full and would even eat an ice cream afterwards.

Oatmeal
Now that I have let you in on one of my secret pigging out habits, I will let you know what I have noticed during that passed three days of my official diet. I have been substituting rice, potatoes and other carbohydrates with oatmeal and some cooked green vegetables. After each meal, I have felt so full and content with what I ate that the thought of eating more or even again for several hours overwhelms me.
I have been consuming two to three meals a day with a bottle of water every hour and some occasional bites of the granola crumble bars I made. I will post a recipe for those afterwards. One hour after lunch, I went to the gym and stayed on the treadmill for about 30 minutes and stayed on power walking speed which is healthier for your cardiovascular system especially if you are just starting out. Do not ware yourself out or you will be in pain the next day which will obviously give you an excuse to leave your workout and diet until you feel better and that might take a week if you even decide to resume.
Lastly I downloaded two apps.

my-diet-coach

 

The first one is called “My Diet Coach II”. It’s a great app that helps you decide the weight goal you want to achieve, why you want to achieve it, and plenty of motivation. You can set up several types of reminders from telling you when to drink water, workout, prepare your food, have a snack, and several others. Another thing I liked about it is that you can upload motivational pictures that you have to look at every day. I decided to upload a current picture of my current figure and will upload one every other day to view my progress.
The last and personally my favorite thing about the app is that it gives you challenges and you can add your own as well. For example, one of the challenges is to see if you can drink 8 cups of water a day. After every cup, you mark one off until you finish the challenge and you get star points. I added the challenge of doing 40 sit-ups 3 times a day.

My Diet Journal
The only downside to this app is that it doesn’t give you the option of documenting your daily meals, snacks, workouts, or weight through a journal or graph. I eventually found another app called “My Diet Journal”. It’s not as pretty and inviting as My Diet Coach, but it gets the job done. It helps you get in the habit of writing down everything you eat, count calories, check your vitals, exercise timing and progress, and even helps you keep an inventory of the healthy groceries you have or need to get. Best of all, it graphs all of you information to give you a more accurate idea of what you are doing well or need to improve on. Well I have rambled long enough and will introduce you to more of my recipes and hopefully post pictures of my before and after next month.

Diet Recipe: Healthy Open-Faced Oatmeal Asparagus Chicken Sandwhich

Oatmeal Chicken Sandwich 2

Oatmeal Chicken Sandwich

Now, I have tried and failed several attempts to successfully complete any kind of diet due to my love for food. However, after taking a more favorable approach to my diet, I realized I can still enjoy cooking delicious foods that are still healthy and fill me up. I have never tried oatmeal and I was pretty disgusted at the thought of eating it most of my life. After realizing that I happened to have some that my uncle gave me in the pantry, I decided to give it a different use than the traditional oatmeal with milk or water mushy vomit looking stuff.

I made a great sandwich using asparagus, oatmeal, chicken breast and whole grain seeded toast bread. It’s called an open-face sandwich because it sits on top of one piece of bread which eliminates the extra calories that you would normally get from using two slices of bread. I ate this for breakfast and made sure to provide the calories.

I used this amount of calories to fit into 3 meals that equal 1000 calories a day which is a great way to speed up your metabolism, lose weight and still stay healthy and hydrated. Make sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day. I hate water but adding tons of crushed ice cubes to the water makes it more refreshing and drinkable for me. I hope you enjoy it and also hope that it helps anyone looking to start an enjoyable, safe, and efficient diet plan.

Oatmeal Chicken Sandwich 2

Prep and cooking time: 13 min

Ingredients:

  • 3 tbsp. Whole grain rolled instant oats with flax seed 70 cal.
  • 1 8″ spear of asparagus chopped 5 cal.
  • 1/2 cup uncooked diced boneless chicken breast 105 cal.
  • 1 slice of 5 seed and poppy wheat bread or multi-grain wheat bread 110 cal.
  • 1 tsp olive oil 40 cal.

 

Preparation:

  1. Add olive oil, asparagus, oats, and chicken to a small sauce pan and cook at medium heat.
  2. Begin by sautéing for 1 minute.
  3. Add salt, garlic salt, and pepper to taste and 2 tsp.of white vinegar.
  4. Add 2 tbsp.  of water to keep moist, then cover for 6 minutes.
  5. Uncover and stir up ingredient and turn off heat.
  6. Leave covered for 3 additional minutes afterwards to absorb any extra juices in the pan.
  7. Place the slice of bread on a plate and cut in half.
  8. Pour mixture on top of slices to create 2 small open-faced sandwiches.
  9. Finish off with cracked black pepper and some extra oats over the top of the sandwiches.

Enjoy.
