One of the characteristics of basketball, and particularly NBA basketball, that can make it so compelling is the fact that the players aren’t wearing all kinds of equipment that can hide their face. Every emotion and utterance is there for all to see on the screen in front of millions. Given this fact, its not surprise that a lot of the commercials to you see during an NBA game have to do with beauty products. Hell, the players themselves are buying and using this crap all the time. No group of professional athletes care more about their appearance than NBA players. One product in particular caught my attention this weekend. It’s a product designed to get rid of hyperpigmentation and its called Meladerm. Hyperpigmentation is basically a skin condition that results in an “uneven” complexion for those affected by it. After watching this commercial a few times I couldn’t but think how much Dennis Rodman needs something like this. But I digress. After doing a bit of research, I discovered that this thing appears legitimate and has given some folks some pretty good results. I was especially blown away after looking at the Meladerm before and after shots. Wow. You wouldn’t believe how hot some of these women looked after applying this stuff for a few weeks. A few of them legitimately went from being a two or three to being an eight or nine. I’m not kidding. Anyway, if you know someone that could benefit from something like this, check it out and let me know what your (or her) results are.
So in my last post I talked about this new shake I had been taking and what led me to take such drastic actions. I wanted to update you as to how its going and provide a little more info for those of you that have been asking. First, I’m down about 15 pounds since I last posted. So, not bad at all. I wish I could hurry back to Sydney and have some of those photos retaken but such is life. Second, the more research I’ve done regarding Ideal Shape the more you learn that the main component to this weight loss shake is Slendesta. Slendesta is a meal suppressant that curbs your appetite and allows rapid, but safe, weight loss. And I can tell you it works. The thing about our appetites is its not the massive meals that really hurt you (at least not for me), its the constant trips to the refrigerator and eating out of boredom. The Ideal Shape ingredients end that and I believe are a major key to its effectiveness.
As avid sports fans one of the things we’re exposed to most when watching our favorite sports is the constant barrage of advertisements for various health products. I don’t know about you (although I’m pretty sure) but I get tired of the relentless stream of crap companies keep trying to sell us. Unfortunately, some worthwhile products often get overlooked or ignored because we’re so numb to the incessant stream of stuff being hailed as the next big thing.
Even our favorite sports figures are being used to pitch all kinds of fitness related products of questionable efficacy. Remember when Shannon Sharpe insisted on wearing that EAS hat for every media appearance so he could push his sponsorship with them?
Well, even with all that I recently broke down and purchased a product that hadn’t been as heavily marketed though the sports channels but was still a regular in my part of the country. Here’s my story:
I was recently in Australia with my ex-girlfriend when I started going through some of the pictures we had taken during our travels. What I noticed stunned me. No, it wasn’t the magnificent beauty of the Sydney Harbor Bridge, the Blue Mountains, or the Opera House. Instead, it was the size and prominence of my gut. Right there for everyone to see (thanks social media). I knew I had to do a better job of watching my weight and being more consistent about working out but I didn’t realize it had gotten so out of hand.
When I got back to the States I starting looking at various weight loss products because all I could think about was how to lose weight and lose it fast. I decided fairly quickly that I was going to have to seriously alter my eating habits to get back to where I wanted with my weight.
As I got further and further along with my research I eventually whittled it down to three products that I thought could help me achieve my weight loss goals. Those three are: Nutrisystem, Jenny Craig, and Ideal Shape. While they all have their benefits and drawbacks I came to the conclusion that the best diet to lose weight for me would be Ideal Shape. The combination of a great tasting product that was easy to prepare and was also light on the wallet sealed the deal for me.
Since I’ve been taking Ideal Shape I’ve lose over twenty pounds by combining the Ideal Shape shakes along with a solid workout program. So, if you’re like me and you’ve been spending too much time watching sports on the couch and it has started to add up around your waistline, I highly recommend giving Ideal Shape a look.
