There’s all sorts of good reasons to lose a few pounds. Starting with you look better in jeans, and moving on to more important reasons, like better heart function.
But now there’s another awesome reason to let True Lemon help you lose weight by drinking more water. Less risk of breast cancer!

May is National Stroke Awareness Month. A stroke happens when one of your brain’s arteries gets blocked or bursts, causing long-term damage or death.
The Stroke Awareness Association wants you to know what you can do about it. First and most importantly, if someone is in distress, you’ve got to act FAST:
- F – look at the person’s face. Does one side droop when you ask them to smile?
- A – ask the person to raise their arms. Is one arm lower than the other?
- S – tell the person to speak. Are the words slurred?
- T – if the answers are yes, it’s time to call 911 because the person probably is having a stroke, and every second counts.
In 2008, PepsiCo, makers of Mountain Dew, Pepsi, Gatorade, AMP Energy Drink, Cheetos, Doritos and Fritos and other snack foods, began an employee wellness program.
Sounds good, right? Except the part where employees get a $50 per month fine if they smoke or have diabetes, high blood pressure or hypertension.
Oh dear! We thought this fact was nailed down: “high HDL cholesterol levels helps fight heart disease.”
But now it seems increasing the HDL, or “good” cholesterol in your body does not protect against heart disease.
Did we really need a study to tell us this? Fructose slows your brain and messes with your memory. Yes, that fizzy cola is not just bad for your waistline, it’s bad for your head parts.
In fact, those sugary foods and drinks will give you actual brain damage when you have them year after year, according to a new UCLA study done on rats.
Oh, that Cornucopia Institute, stirring up shoppers’ anger again! First it was eggs, now it’s your cereal.
A new CI report called “Cereal Crimes” found high levels of Genetically Modified Organisms in many "natural" cereals. The report compared big name cereals with cereals that ban genetically modified grains and synthetic pesticides.
The image on your left is what got people talking. After reading the CI report, a natural foods store manager in Rhode Island pulled Kashi from the shelves and posted the notice.
It’s getting hot outside! By now you’ve probably emptied the winter clothes out your closet. You might have also opened the windows and given your house a good Spring scrubbing.
That means now is a great time to clear out some clutter for a fresh start on weight loss and better health. How? Let’s go into your kitchen.
Take a look at your cabinets and pantry. Do you see stacks of aluminum cans, or big plastic bottles of unnatural looking greenish or orange fluid? Whether they’re diet or regular, these beverages have got to go. Sodas and sweetened drinks are a leading cause of obesity. Not only that, did you know even a single sweetened drink per day increases the risk of Type 2 diabetes as much as 25 percent compared to having one sugary drink as a once-a-month treat?
What’s in your shopping cart? All natural foods are great, but some are even better. These must-haves give you the greatest health benefits and help you avoid weight gain.
VEGETABLES – like fruits, fill up with as much of these and other vegetables as you like!
When you’re out and about, are you ever nervous about what’s in your water glass? If you are, just shake in a packet of True Lime! Because it turns out that lime juice can help make water safer to drink!
Here’s the story: in many places around the world, clean water is hard to come by and water-borne bacteria often causes diarrhea. For those places, UNICEF recommends a process called "Solar Water Disinfection". Water is collected in plastic bottles and set in the sun for six to 48 hours to kill germs.
The SWD method for disinfection is cheap and easy, but two days is a long time to wait for water to drink or for cooking.
