New Product Tuesday with Emagrece Sim

Bikini body courtesy of Emagrece SimYour Savvy Shopper doesn’t know what magical South American ingredients are in the Emagrece Sim diet system. Watching the infomercial, you might believe its cleansing and hunger-reducing properties of this two-part weight loss system play a pivotal roll in sculpting all those beautiful bikini-clad bodies on the beaches of Rio. My questions are: 1) Is this product really from Brazil, and 2) does Emagrece Sim really mean “yes to make thin” in the local lingo? Google Translate says it means “rather thin,” or maybe “thin yes yes” or “yep, thin.” If you translate from English to Portuguese, you get “sim fazer fina.” Any Portuguese speakers out there? Anyone who’s had success dropping pounds with the product? Let us know!

Hot (News) Flash about GEM Keep it cool

Gem and Leela: separated at birth?

Sticky summer heat plus the intense hot flashes of menopause can make it hard for a gal to keep her cool. So when a product comes along that promises to reduce the intensity and frequency of hot flashes, irritability, sleeplessness and night sweats, ‘women of a certain age’ sit up and take notice. And when it tastes like a fruit smoothie, we reach for our plastic.

Given the controversy surrounding hormone replacement therapy, many women are choosing to treat the symptoms of menopause with natural and nature identical supplements. lists some well-known hot-flash fighters like Black Cohosh, calcium and vitamin D, as well as a host of other vitamins and herbal ingredients. With so many women Baby Boomers reaching menopause, GEM Keep it cool™ could be a real hot item. The woman-owned Beveragette Ventures company is offering GEM Keep it cool™ (or GemKIC, as those in the know say) for less than $2 a day for a limited time. Hmmm, is it hot in here, or is it just me?

New Product Tuesday with Smart for Life Cookie Diet

Infomercials really can be educational. This one for the Smart for Life Cookie Diet taught me the Cookie Jar Song, a nursery school singalong that teaches the valuable lesson of how to deny responsibility and blame others. “Who stole the cookie from the cookie jar? Not me.” I’m so happy the Cookie Jar Song is stuck in my head. I needed a soundtrack for my life.

As annoying as this ditty is, it is an effective way to deliver this diet plan’s core message. Eat cookies. Lose weight. It’s that simple. So simple even a preschooler can understand it!

New Product Tuesday with ISO7X Isometric Workout

What’s old is new again. Isometric exercise has its roots in the Physical Culture movement of the 19th century, and in a modified form was promoted as Dynamic Tension by fitness legend Charles Atlas throughout most of the 20th century. According to Wikipedia,

Isometric exercise or “isometrics” are a type of strength training in which the joint angle and muscle length do not change during contraction (compared to concentric or eccentric contractions, called dynamic/isotonic movements). Isometrics are done in static positions, rather than being dynamic through a range of motion. The joint and muscle are either worked against an immovable force (overcoming isometric) or are held in a static position while opposed by resistance (yielding isometric).

The motto of isometrics should be “resistance is NOT futile.” ISO7X is a piece of fitness equipment mated with an exercise program that promises to mold you into an incredible hunk in just ten minutes a day of resistance exercises, each held for seven seconds. Is it too late for your Savvy Shopper to get revenge against that bully who kicked sand in my face all those years ago?
