COCOA

Cocoa, well, this plant is for deep fat elimination. I am not should of how much you have to consume for it to work properly. I tried it but I don’t know of how it was working. I got the product from Vitamin Shoppe. The organic one for like 7 dollars. I am not sure about it though. Don’t think I used the right amount, but might have different results if I used the correct amount. It is for easy weight loss because it is a diuretic. Why is it a diuretic? It has this ingredient called Theobromine, which raise your Thermogenesis level. In simple terms, it makes you lose weight. One more thing, it has Polyphenols, now, this right here make it easy to lose calories. Weight loss is about calories you burn. 3500 calories to gain a pound; so with Cocoa you burn those calories to lose weight not gain pounds.

nowcocoaI tried it for some time. To be exact, I tried the certified Organic Cocoa Powder. 100% pure and it does have naturally occurring Polyphenols. It is a bout 12 oz and it is a lot for 12 ounces. The company name is NOW Healthy Foods. The product I brought was NON-GMO verified, so that’s good. The purer, the better — USDA organic. This 12 oz. bottle packed in 136 serving, a teaspoon at a time. What I should of done was do some research of how many grams do someone needs to consume to get results. Maximum results.

I am going to use this again. Trying to get healthier; so, of course, I’ll try it out. You can mix it with other beverage and it taste alright. Of course, it is brown dark brown. This plant has the benefits of getting to that deep stubborn fat elimination. So if your interested go for it and try it. Vitamin Shoppe has it or you can buy it at the grocery store. Do your research too and see how much you have to take for it to work for you. You have to workout too and not eat anything okay. Using the right amount of this product would work because of the Polyphenols in it.

So get your knowledge on. Brainy Versatility.

Those long leap jumps and vertical jumps right after get to you. Finished it off with some free-throws. My dribbles getting better so this basketball workouts is good. I eat some fish and broccoli. Need to cook my fish thoroughly though. I need to start stretching more because of stomach cramps. Stomach cramps are no joke, like they will come and get that muscle and tightening it up. So painful and last for some minutes. I need to stretch more and drink more than a gallon of water a day. Drank some more water, so no more cramps. I got this:D

I got through the workout and went on to the rest of my day. Lets do this. Workout. Workout. Workout. Now stretching so I don’t get no cramps.

Overall, my workouts are going good, along with the diet I am in right now. I need to find a balance plan for a lifestyle though, instead of doing diets. I think, I might of find it. It is try and see kind of thing because you don’t know how it is and if it will work till you try it. So I will try some new food plans and see if that works for me. I will let you all know about it.
