Last year was the year of detoxes, with more of us than ever taking part if weight loss inducing detox programs. And this year is no different, with detox programs, like the C9, once again increasing in popularity.

This year, tea cleanses are also incredibly popular. With more and more of us turning to a cup of tea for weight loss and detoxing purposes. These types of weight loss methods tend to be popular because they offer quick and affordable results. However, it’s important to understand that not all detoxes are safe.


A treatment that’s been popular for years, liposuction is one of the most common weight loss procedures. While fat freezings and gastric bands are also popular, none of these treatments offer such quick or affordable results.

Because liposuction is a keyhole procedure, it’s become even more popular. It comes with a low price tag, minimal risks, and great results, making it a popular weight loss treatment. However, it does still come with a recovery time of a few days and a fair amount of pain and bruising.

Laser treatment

A new alternative to liposuction, liposculpture, a treatment performed using lasers, has become popular. This is partially because it’s completely non-invasive and pain-free. And also, because it requires no time off work and gives gradual, natural-looking results.

According to liposculpture experts, this treatment breaks up the fat, allowing it to slowly be go rid of by the body. So instead of it instantly reducing your waistline, it takes a few weeks to take full effect. This makes it look like you’ve naturally lost weight naturally.

Body wraps

Last but not least, body wraps have also increased in popularity this year. This is mostly because of how affordable they are, as well as how quickly you can see results. Body wraps work by reducing your body of water weight, leading to weight loss. This can be anything from a few centimeters to a few inches, it all depends on how much water weight you’re carrying.

The downside to wraps is that the results are nearly never permanent, and last for a few days at the most. However, as a quick fix before an event or a holiday, they can be the ideal solution to slimming down quickly. It’s this that makes them so popular when it comes to weight loss.

So there you have it, the most popular weight loss treatments of 2016. All of these treatments have risen significantly in popularity this year.


Getting lean with @SaffroLean

There are thousands of weight loss supplements out there with exaggerated promises of rapid weightless without making changes to your diet yada yada yada, not to mention the slew of dangerous stimulants that come with them… so when I heard about SaffroLean a few months ago, I was honestly less than excited. However, seeing as I’d been struggling with my weight for the past year, I figured I’d give it a try. I had quite a scare last year with my heart, which landed me in  and out of hospital for a few weeks. After being released from hospital, I found myself slipping into an uncontrollable downward spiral of depression, and picked up a nasty habit of comfort eating.

I went from this (left) to that (right) in less than 6 months! The heaviest I have ever been!

I was eating ALL THE TIME, even when I wasn’t hungry, plus I ditched being vegetarian and started eating meat like my life depended on it lol. I’m not sure why I started comfort eating, as I usually eat less when I’m stressed, but I’m guessing that because I was in the final lap of finishing my degree, and recovering from some undiagnosed condition; the stress was more than I could handle, who knows.

A Uniquely Effective Approach to Weight Loss and Food Control. Where Great Health Begins

I received a 90-day trial pack of SaffroLean a few months ago, and after reading all about it, I couldn’t wait to give it a try. I was even more excited upon discovering that SaffroLean is stimulant free, meaning I didn’t have to worry about any dangerous stimulants causing uneasiness and making my heart race (phew!).  Because I was having trouble with my snacking and portion control, I was pleased to see that some of the many benefits of taking SaffroLean were reduced snacking and overeating, as well as a faster metabolism!

Clinical studies show that people that took SaffroLean lost an average of 28.4 lbs in 90 days. I’ve been taking SaffroLean for two months (60 days) and although I don’t see any drastic weight loss, others have mentioned that they have noticed changes in my weight. My mother also says that my face has slimmed down, and that overall, I’m much slimmer than I was at my graduation in June. So that’s a good sign. I can say however, that I snack WAY less, and I definitely eat a lot less, in fact; I find I only eat at meal times (which is great because before I was eating every hour on the hour… yeah), and I really didn’t even make any effort to change my diet. All I have to do is take one capsule of SaffroLean 30 minutes before breakfast and lunch and just go about my day. Stress free! I also noticed that I was happier, and had a more positive attitude towards how I approached eating and losing weight. It’s easy to let weight gain get you down, and maintaining a positive attitude can be difficult, even when you know you’re trying your best, so it was definitely a bonus that SaffroLean helps with improving a person’s mood and sense of well-being. Can we say WINNER?!

The picture on the left is when I started taking SaffroLean in September, and the picture on the right is my second month using SaffroLean. The very first picture is me a few days ago 🙂

So what’s in it? Simply put; appetite-curbing  Satiereal Saffron, fat oxidizing Green Tea Extract, plus 5 other important Vitamins (Vitamins D3 B1, B2, B6, and B12),  and NONE of the dangerous stimulants.

The key player?

Satiereal Saffron: is a natural extract from the same plant as the spice saffron. For centuries in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, saffron has been used as an aid to improve mood and relieve stress. Europeans discovered that along with these benefits, it can be used to aid in successfully losing weight and keep it off

I’ve only been taking SaffroLean for two months, and I’m loving the results so far, so I can’t wait to see the results after I finish the next 30-days. I’d like to say a HUGE THANK YOU to Pamela Mirante and the entire SaffroLean team for giving me the opportunity to try SaffroLean, I’ve really enjoyed taking it, and once I’m done my 90-day trial, I plan on getting more SaffroLean!!

stay healthy 🙂

Detoxing…..not just for weight loss!

Being a sugar addict, caffeine junkie and fast food queen, it was all catching up fast. I needed and wanted to rejuvenate my body. I came across Hacienda Del Sol Yoga and Detox Retreat in Costa Rica on the internet. Next day after bragging to my friends and coworkers about the cleanse I booked to lose weight they were astonished. They couldn’t believe I would use my vacation time to detox in the middle of the jungle with a daily schedule of juices, 2 colonics, and hours of mediation, just didn’t seem fun to them.  A month later I was off to Costa Rica. As I arrived we jumped right in to detox mode and I’m given coconut water, (of course my mouth was watering for a fountain Diet Coke)….so I drank the coconut water. It was truly thirst quenching!


 The first night we were served raw lasagna. It was the best raw food I had ever had, well to be honest the only raw food I have ever had. Made with a spinach walnut pesto, fresh tomatoes, zucchini and other goodness, it was simply delectable! First day was tough and some of the juices you just had to shoot like tequila.



  Mediation and being in silence daily was very peaceful and the colonics….well do I need to go there? After the third day I did hit a wall and wanted to leave I was crawling out of my skin without pinterest, Iphone, and my Starbucks. After crying, kicking and calling United to check on flights nothing panned out. I was stuck. The Universe  knew I needed to stay and walk through the healing process.  From that day forward I gave 110% of my energy (well the energy I had left after my daily colonics) to the trip that was going to change my number on the scale. As the days passed I found myself building relationships with people from all over the world, becoming content in my own skin, feeling vibrant, and looking at life in a different light. I went to lose a few extra pounds and lay out at the beach but instead received a life changing experience! I will be booking my next trip soon to Hacienda Del Sol…..and yes I did relapse on coffee.


Needs me one of THESE!!!

We have Alexander to thank for introducing me to this awesomeness that is the Quantum Scale! And to Susan Taylor  (Founder) for her genius! My heart was moved when Alexander told me the story of how the Quantum Scale came about, and I think that has something to do with my I love this thing! (I know I know, I’m a big softie)

“In order to change you have to let go of your old self, You have to leave behind your old identity so you can speculate on who you can become.”

  1.  How many of you hate weighing yourselves? 
  2. How many of you don’t even want to think about jumping on a scale? 
  3. How many of you get discouraged after weighing yourselves? 

I know I’ve answered yes to those questions once upon a time… Whatever your reasons may be for hating that friggin’ scale, worry NO MORE cause Susan has shed a ray of very bright light on the dark and dreary hate-weighing-myself blues

This is how it works; you step on and it secretly records your weight and whenever you step on the scale after that, it tells you ONLY the weight you’ve lost or gained. AH-MAZING!
Let’s face it, if you’re trying to lose weight and keep seeing those same THREE NUMBERS it gets a lil (A LOT) frustrating. Instead now you can look forward to minus one digit, minus two digits, or minus three digits! I think it’s pretty friggin awesome, talk about motivation! No one wants to see how much they’ve put on, but everybody LURRRRRVES to see how much they lost (maybe its just me ha ha ha). Your number one motivating factor when joining the Quantum Culture should be YOUR HEALTH, second should be those victorious numbers that reflect all your hard work! Even when you drop half a pound! KEEP GOING, half a pound leads to two… three… four…whatever your goal!!
I sooooo co-sign Quantum!
I can’t wait to try mine!!!!

“Get Happy. Be Happy. Go Quantum!”
