Hi, I am Melissa Joan Hart and I lost 40 pounds using Nutrisystem.

Q: How much weight did you gain with Tucker?

A: I gained about 60 pounds of Tucker.

Q: Ok and that’s your third pregnancy?

A: Yeah and I lost a chunk of it. You know after the baby was born his weight and you know all the other stuff.

Q: But that’s only around 10 or 15 pounds.

A: That’s not a lot. I know it’s not a lot and so then I had another 30 to go. I lost that 30 and then it felt good and I kept going and now I am 40.

Q: Is Mark supportive? How does he handle?

A: He is very much supportive. Oh! He is the guy who is like disciplined and you know his whole thing is to “stick to it, be healthy and be fit”. He does it for me so I have returned him a favor. I mean I had three babies for him but I also wanted to look fantastic going into my 40’s.

Q: Are you going to have more babies?

A: I don’t know we haven’t decided. We thought so but now we are exhausted. I know the feeling! I know I feel great so I don’t want to go back there. For me it was important to bond with my child, as opposed to lose the weight. So, I waited until I was ready, and I knew I had the time, and then I made it a priority that I would eat well and then once I had some time and my schedule will open up I would get back to working out, spinning. I love spinning, I go home walking and love hiking. I got the joggers to walk while dragging the stroller so that I could stay active.

Q: Did you ever feel the pressure to get skinny right away?

A: Well, No not this time. In the beginning I felt uncomfortable pressure that I rebelled against. But this third time I had to go back on camera. I wanted to look great. So I focused on it once I knew I had the time.

Q: Are you there where you want to be?

A: I am actually. I am really happy where I am. I can live like this. I am on a good path. I feel amazing and I have just so much energy to give to my kids and work and my husband and you know it’s just a good time again.

Q: What are your experiences with the camera?

A: I stay away from that scenario but they don’t come stalk me. They don’t hunt me down because I do expose my child. I do take them out and make them see. So I have protected my kids by kind off putting them on camera and letting people see that these are my kids and this is my family. They are also coming with me in commercial of splash into the pool. They are cute. I said that I want them here. I think they are beyond adorable so why don’t show them off?

Dangerous Ingredient Found In Diet Supplements

Diet SupplementsA new study, which was published in the Drug Testing and Analysis journal, proved that many diet supplements on the market pose serious dangers. Twelve of the fourteen supplements that were tested contained a chemical called AMP Citrate, or DMBA.

DMBA is similar in its chemistry to other ingredients banned by the Food and Drug Administration. These substances have similarities to amphetamines. Amphetamines have serious adverse cardiac and neuropsychiatric effects. DMBA, found in many of today’s diet supplements is extremely similar to DMAA, which was banned in 2012 after almost one hundred people suffered from heart attacks, stroke, seizures and even death after using the product. DMAA has been proven to be extremely unsafe and after so many reported dangerous effects, the FDA was able to ban the ingredient.

The problem with diet supplements is that unlike medical prescriptions, they do not have to be proven as safe to be released on the market. This leaves room for serious health reactions to consumers.

Manufacturers who are including DMBA in their diet supplements claim that the ingredient is derived from tea; however there is no evidence that the ingredient was extracted from a plant. And, AMP Citrate was not tested on humans before it was released to the public. This means, there is no scientific evidence to prove that it is safe for consumption.

DMBA was synthetically created after DMAA was banned, and it’s make up is chemically similar to DMBA. In essence, makers of DMAA modified the chemical slightly and re-released it. Although, it sounds like an illegal practice, it is not. Unfortunately, many times, the FDA cannot ban dangerous additives or ingredients in supplements until after they have been put on the market and after the side effects have been reported.

From Smart Phones to Smart Handbags

From Smart Phones to Smart HandbagsIn a major breakthrough for two–year old, start–up company Everpurse, electronics giant Samsung SDI has signed a partnership deal with them, that gives the young company, access to a supply of sophisticated lightweight batteries for their handbags, as well as the superior technical knowhow of the consumer electronics leader.

Everpurse is known to make stylish handbags with internal pockets, which charge mobiles wirelessly for consumers on the go. The outcome of the deal, will allow Everpurse to manufacture bags with phone charging technology that endures 96 hours. As Samsung normally does business with bigger vendors, the partnership is seen to be strategic, by co–founders of Everpurse, Dan and Liz Salcedo, who are very excited by the prospects of the collaboration. Samsung would be contributing on design recommendation, as well as supplying safe, high-powered, light batteries.

Samsung has been impressed by Everpurse’s credentials in the world of fashion technology and the priority accorded by them to design, over technology and also itself, aspires to be an eminent presence in fashion technology and this explains its choice, according to Liz Salcedo.

Everpurse bags have been marketed online through Kickstarter, with two successive campaigns and can claim to charge a multitude of phones including both the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. In the offing, is a hard-shell clutch, which allows the phone to charge outside with a wallet on the inside.

Everpurse bagsThe nascent editions of Everpurse, had to be sewn by hand, in the absence of a manufacturer who could create leather bags integrating the charger technology and the absence of lightweight batteries offered by Samsung SDI presently. The handbag found many takers on its release, but two criticisms remained, the first being over-heaviness and the second, was the requirement for a light on the charging pad to indicate fully charged.

On its second campaign conducted under Kickstar, Everpurse has showcased several versions of the handbag including, vegan and leather versions in different colors, the 48 hour charge version and the latest 96 hour charge version, in partnership with Samsung SDI.

An innovative element, that is sure to impress potential customers in its upcoming collection for 2015, are tiny RIFD tags, to track essential handbag items like keys, which work in combination with the Everpurse app. As aptly put by Liz Salcedo, smart handbags are going to dominate customer personal space in the next decade, as life becomes increasingly fast-paced in the very way, smart phones are doing now and the stellar deal with Samsung, corroborates this vision.
