Turns out losing pesky fat around your midsection is easier and cheaper than you may think: Simply sip an 8-oz. glass of water spiked with 2 tsp. of apple cider vinegar daily. The sip’s acetic acid has been proven to switch on fat-burning genes and balance blood sugar to dial down appetite. Those are effects that have helped study subjects effortlessly lower their daily calorie intake by 275 with no other lifestyle changes. The payoff: You’ll shed up to 10% of your body weight (including stubborn belly fat!) in six weeks.
One of the easiest ways to foster joy and good health: tailoring your clothes to your unique needs. When deciding what to wear, consider the radiant energy of the colors in your closet. Each one has an effect on your body, and color therapy has been used for centuries in the treatment of disease and injury. Anxious? Pick a blue top, which promotes tranquility and calmness. Sad? Add a pop of yellow. The sunny color has been shown to boost cheer. Grieving? Choose pink, which can help heal sadness and loss.
