In Tinseltown, outrageous slimming crazes are par for the course, from single colour eating to the “drip diet” and wheatgrass shots.

But there is a new fat-buster on sale, and it doesn’t include strange eating practices.

The green coffee pill is the new A-list alternative diet, which is considered to help reduce the appetite and also stimulating fat burning.

Demi Moore, Jennifer Lopez and Katy Perry are already rumored to be using these pills, and the majority of the Los Angeles highly fashionable celebrities consider following their example.

As a replacement, the beans have in their composition chlorogenic acids and the most important of them is a powerful natural fat-buster named 5-caffeoylquinic acid. A well-respected Hollywood nutritionist divulged in an interview that “My clients have been going crazy for green coffee bean pills”. In their race to the Oscars, the actresses do just about anything in order to appear as thin as possible. They are all doing their best to have slimmer bodies on the red carpet. The word spread like fire through the Hollywood elite and the pill is considered the new miracle weight loss tablet. They also say that “You’re supposed to take 800mg a day but some are taking 1,600mg” and insisting “it can’t do any harm”.

The researchers from the University of Scranton, Pennsylvania, directed a study which revealed the fact that ingesting the pills can improve the loss of the excessive weight by a considerable 10 per cent – even when administered in reasonably minimal dosage. Joe Vinson, who guided the research, explained: “Based on our results, taking multiple capsules of green coffee extract a day — while eating a low-fat, healthful diet and exercising regularly — appears to be a safe, effective, inexpensive way to lose weight.”

Due to the evidences that support the reputation of green coffee’s fat-bursting, numerous health specialists pointed the negative aspects of green coffee bean pills, which may involve high blood pressure and also anxiety. If people suffer from these, or epilepsy and panic attacks, they absolutely shouldn’t take the pills.

Even worse is that the providers outside of the USA and Europe are somewhat out of control and some of them have been discovered to replace the more costly coffee extract with less expensive ephedrine. You can even buy them online, but these pills contain additives to bulge and fill them up and you cannot know for sure what they contain. The ephedrine is a chemical banned in the UK because it acts like cocaine when consumed, it races the pulse and it makes the user over active, whilst additionally suppressing his appetite.

The nutrition experts are concerned that these capsules will be famous even among the women who don’t really have to lose weight, and therefore they will endure the consequences. Also, more rigorous investigations require to be done before we ingest the green coffee pill.

 

The pension snare that traps one saver every minute

For a long time, taking your pension could not have been easier. You and your employer paid a small amount of your salary and on your retirement day you were assured to get an income. The sum you obtained was based on your final salary and the number of years you have worked. Every year that sum would increase with inflation and would keep paying out half of that income to your spouse after your death. This idea was secure and relaxing for many savers.

These days, just one in ten private-sector workers contributes into these retirement plans and their number decreases every year. With an amount of just £5,728 a year for a single person, the basic state pension is not enough to pay for the pensioner’s lifestyle.twenty-pounds-british-notes

Our increasing life expectations and the tax on dividends in pension funds leaded to the fall of the private pension schemes. The consequence is that many workers are given defined contribution pensions. Your earnings and the contribution of your employer are deposited into a pension fund managed by an insurance company. This is invested in the stock market and the resulted amount will depend on how the investments were performed, minus the charges for taking care of your money. Savers will turn this sum into an income and, to do this, they have to take out the annuity offered by insurance companies.

Nowadays, saving into a pension can be challenging. Many people hit retirement age and found out that their savings are far from satisfactory. A significant move ahead was to automatically enroll every worker into a company pension. By 2017, 11million employees will be contributing into a pension for the first time. This will assure savings for the persons who never had or waited several years to start, but still many people will hit retirement age with a much smaller income than they anticipated. It happens because savers are mainly left to their own devices and they don’t actually know how much they will need in retirement. Also, savers have to know how much has been displaced to charges, the contributions and how the pension funds have performed.

Savers hardly boost their contributions and they find out too late that they need to save more. But if you don’t begin saving until you are 45, you would have to save £935 a month to get the same income.

A big failure happens when converting the earnings into an income. Paying into a pension that will provide some kind of regular payment, a significant amount of damage can be done. Some insurers obtain enormous profits by offering duff deals to uninformed customers.

Six months before retirement, you will receive a letter from your pension company, from where you will find out that some firms will pay you much income from your savings and that you can shop around for a different income. If this letter doesn’t contain an offer of an income, the letter you receive after three months will include it. It is important for you to know that the basic income calculated by the firms will cease after your death and your spouse will be deprived of even tens of thousands of extra income. But these letters contain jargon-packed, vast information, and the most important detail goes missing. The process is baffling and the retirees are dumped on to the rate their insurer has offered.

It is critical that the pensions industry encounter some difficult reforms, but it is important for you to consult a financial adviser to help you decide what to do with your pension.

Outrageous! “Anorexic” doll that shuns food. It should be banned!

nenuco foodThe makers of this toy, a £34.99 doll that refuses to eat, have been accused of encouraging anorexia. This doll shakes her head and keeps her mouth shut when trying to feed her. The feeding spoon contains a magnet that activates an internal switch, closing the doll’s mouth when attempting to make her eat. The new mothers often go through this, struggling to get the babies to have their meals. But you can get this doll to eat by turning the spoon over and pressing it against her lips.

Eating disorder campaigners declare that it could embolden and normalize eating disorders at an early age and that selling it is establishing a negative example.

The doll named “Nenuco Won’t Eat” is produced by the company Famosa, which makers justify that this toy is actually intended to help children understand the frustrations of normal life and the importance of properly eating. Because it is going on sale in the UK in February, the campaigners express their worries about the threatening subliminal message that will motivate girls to reject food. The policy manager at YoungMinds, Chris Leaman, said: “This doll sends the wrong message to children and encourages them to think that refusing food is normal behaviour. We would not want children to be influenced by this, and are concerned that it promotes unhealthy attitudes towards food and body image.”

The charity Beat, which campaigns on anorexia and bulimia, stated: “Research shows young children are becoming aware of body image at a much earlier age. A doll that refuses food is hardly a good example to them”. Anita Worcester, of eating disorder charity SWEDA, said: “Promoting what is basically an anorexic doll seems unhealthy”.

On the contrary, the UK marketing director for Famosa, Nikki Jeffery, claimed that Nenuco represents the actual difficulties mothers encounter when trying to feed a baby. She concluded: “We know that children often don’t eat what they are given, but the doll is designed to show them how important it is that they eat properly. It is about enabling young girls to have the closest experience possible to being a “real mum”. We are not encouraging children not to eat. The idea is that the child understands the doll is being mischievous and that the child encourages the doll to eat the food, just as a parent does with their child.”

Nenuco doll among 37 new toys are expected by the British Toy & Hobby Association to be sold well this year.
