I was approached a few times by different companies to see if I am interested to do face aesthetics like fillers or even plastic surgery (FREE TRIP TO KOREA!!!) but these are never my concerns. I am not saying that I look perfect nor am I against plastic surgery! I don’t want to put myself into surgery ordeals nor wish to change my features! I definitely want to look prettier, wishing I have small nose… but my nose is exactly the same as my father. Therefore there is no need for me to do plastic surgery! ^^ However, I definitely need help with WEIGHT MANAGEMENT! (I did got an offer to do liposuction but… I don’t dare!! =X)
Sooooooo… I was really excited when I received an offer from EXPRESSIONS to join in their Blogger Ambassadorship program! 我有救了!!! LOL LOL!!!!!
I went over to EXPRESSIONS at Regency House for a weight checkup! Although I know I am already fat, but the results further frightened me! #OMG All those late dinners, starbucks, milk teas, tidbits, stress…. really gave my body and weight a wake up call!
I MUST SLIM DOWN AND BE HEALTHY IN 2016 and years after!!! I will definitely become even better in March~~~~
For the first part of my journey with Expressions, I did a 3 days detox by taking the Slim Juice and Bran Wheat Psyllium!
Step 1: Bran Wheat Psyllium
A superior fiber that speeds up the body’s food processing time, providing important vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. Helps lower cholesterol level as well as cleanse intestinal tract. It is 100% natural herb that can also be eaten by vegetarians. Made in USA exclusively for Expressions.

Wheat bran promotes good health, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, and digestive problems.Good bowel health is essential for many things. The bowel or colon removes toxins from the body, and if you are not eliminating regularly, toxins can build up in the system. Bacteria in the gut also produce vitamin K and help synthesize many vitamins. New evidence also shows that serotonin, the brain chemical responsible for moods, is produced mostly in the colon rather than in the brain as once thought. A healthy colon usually means the entire body is healthy, so eating foods rich in fiber and taking good care of your colon can boost your overall health.It is very difficult to get enough fibre in a diet when you eliminate the carbohydrates in cereals, whole grains and fruits. Psyllium capsules are an easy way to take care of this problem. It fills you with fibre, reducing appetite without overstimulating the nervous system; a much healthier approach.Psyllium is the husk of the seed of the Plantago and is a top herb used in weight control and for general intestinal health. It contains a spongy fiber that reduces appetite, improves digestion and cleanses the system, making it an excellent choice for healthy dieting. Psyllium can provide the fiber that is missing on low carbohydrate diets. Every 100 grams of psyllium provides 71 grams of soluble fiber; a similar amount of oat bran would contain only 5 grams of soluble fiber. Only recently have scientists learned that soluble fiber has unique effects on metabolism. Just take one or two capsules with a glass of water or Yerba Mate diet tea, half hour before meals. The herb also provides a feeling of fullness that is helpful before meals. Psyllium is one of the simplest, healthiest and most effective herbs for weight control.
Psyllium has also been used for irritable bowel syndrome (a stress-related disorder with alternating bouts of diarrhea and constipation). Because it will produce easy bowel movements with a loose stool, Psyllium is used by patients with anal fissures (cracks in the skin near the anus) and haemorrhoids and is often recommended following anal or rectal surgery, during pregnancy and as a secondary treatment in certain types of diarrhoea.
Psyllium soaks up a significant amount of water in the digestive tract, thereby making stool firmer and, under these circumstances, slower to pass. Psyllium also has the additional advantages over other sources of fiber of reducing flatulence and bloating. It may be recommended by a physician to help soften stool and reduce the pain associated with haemorrhoids.
Studies and clinical reports suggest that psyllium may enhance the sensation of fullness and reduce hunger cravings. For these reasons, incorporating psyllium and other sources of fiber into the diet may aid weight loss.
As a special dietary supplements, take two to four capsules two to three times before meals daily with a large glass of water.
Step 2: Slim Juice
Once known as KiloKiller, Slim Juice has been newly formulated with finer granules to dissolve easier in juices.
SlimJuice helps individuals lose weight by 5 Steps:
→ Burning stubborn fat cells stored away in the body
→ Drain harmful toxins hindering the absorption of nutrients
→ Creates a smooth movement for the breakdown of food
→ Appeases appetite all day long
→ Reduces the tendency of snacking
*disclaimer – Actual results of the product and services may vary per individual. No individual result should be seen as typical.
Tips & Ingredients: *1 box of SlimJuice contains 14 sachets (2-weeks supply)*
Taste wise, SlimJuice is similar to Sprite soda mixed with yummy fruit juice! I LIKE IT and still didn’t get sick after drinking 12 packets of it for 1 week plus! I need more! ^^
I started the Slim Juice Detox on a Saturday to Monday. Basically I was on a clean diet, taking the Bran Wheat Psyllium half an hour before Slim Juice. Amazingly, I really feel full just by taking these two products all the way from Breakfast to Lunch. As for lunch, I ate a salad with variety of vegetables and white meat. Then I again took the Bran Wheat Psyllium half an hour before Slim Juice for dinner.
