To speed weight loss on any diet, eat a few artichoke hearts. Many of us have a liver that’s clogged with toxins and fatty deposits, disrupting the organ’s ability to metabolize stored fat efficiently. Artichokes to the rescue! These natural detoxifiers (especially the hearts) are loaded with liver-protecting flavonoids that enhance the output of bile, an emulsifying fluid key to digestion and the breakdown of fats. This primes the body to melt fat around the midsection. I love tossing artichoke hearts into chicken soup or salads and recommend consuming 1/2 cup daily.
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.
