Why The Wraps Don’t Work

annisa it works wraps

I get asked this question several times a week. (Do the wraps REALLY work? Do they really tighten your skin? My friend told me they didn’t work…. etc. etc.)

So, my job right here is to tell you exactly WHY they aren’t working for you.

Let’s start with reason #1. Because you expect a drastic change after using only  1 wrap. Let me use this analogy to explain the wraps. It’s just like whitening your teeth. It’s a gradual process. You don’t just slap on one crest white strip and expect your teeth to be shining brighter than the sun. 1 wrap is considered a treat and 4 is considered a treatment. Some people may take more than 4 wraps to get to where they want to be! It all depends on your body, health goals, and more factors that I will explain here in a bit.

If you aren’t taking before and after pictures for yourself either, then you might as well have not even used the wrap at all. Before and After pictures are EVERYTHING. I don’t think I have ever been able to FEEL the difference until I SAW it for myself in pictures. Not only should you take a picture right after you take off the wrap, but also take a picture 72 hours after. The ingredients from the wrap continue to tighten and tone your skin for at least 72 hours, so your results will continue.

Another reason why the wraps won’t work. And this one isn’t as surprising when you really think about it, but let me ask you this. Are you drinking enough water? Are you drinking at least half of your body weight in ounces every day? Now, I can go all scientific on the reasons WHY you should be drinking water when wrapping, but I’m not going to bore you with the details. Basically, your body needs to flush out those toxins that the wrap is helping to break down. Ever heard of Lipolysis? No? Google it.

And if you’re drinking alcohol while wrapping, well I don’t have much to say about that.

Now, I saved this one for last because it’s something that most people don’t understand. I will always ask you what your exercise and eating habits are like before I get you started on anything. Why? Because our products are not meant to REPLACE a healthy lifestyle but ENHANCE it. Some people automatically think if they use our products they can stop exercising and stop eating healthy. Or they think they don’t need the wraps because they are already exercising and eating healthy.

That’s great but did you know your body can and will eventually hit a plateau where you won’t be able to lose weight, tone, or build muscle as fast as you once did. That’s why SUPPLEMENTS are made! (go figure)

Actually, our products work as a catalyst to boost your results and to get you over that plateau. Sure, these products can work without exercising but  don’t expect to see results right away. It will take AWHILE.

I’ve also mentioned this before, but if you’re not being consistent with your supplements don’t expect crazy results either. Even if you’re taking your supplements consistently, it will take about 3-4 weeks to start seeing results.

I’m not here to tell you there is a magic pill out there because there’s not, but there are ways to significantly boost your results and easier ways to reach your goal. IT WORKS when you DO. (no pun intended). So the question is are you ready to work for it?

Why Understanding Your Metabolism Can Be a Game Changer

Annisa Body Pic

Good Evening!,

Hope everyone has had a great day so far! Today, I wanted to talk about something that is commonly misunderstood.. Metabolism. Don’t worry, its a complicated subject but you will feel EXTREMELY better once you understand how it all works and how to BOOST it!

What is the correct term for metabolism you may ask? Well, according to news-medical.net metabolism is described as a “term used to describe all chemical reactions involved in maintaining the living state of the cells and the organisms.” Say what?? Basically its what keeps you alive, what keeps your body working!

Your metabolism is NOT what determines weight-loss and weight-gain. As commonly taught in the real world. Good thing is you can trick your body into thinking you have a fast metabolism, especially if you are exercising regularly. You can definitely take control of your metabolism and here’s how:

  1. Eat a GOOD Breakfast– This should be done EVERY day! Don’t let your body go into starvation mode because that’s what will happen if you don’t eat breakfast! Try a mix of lean protein, carbohydrates, and healthy fats. Ex: Oats, egg whites, fruits etc.
  2. Drink Water– I know, I know I always stress the water thing. But according to a study from the University of Utah people who drink 8-12 glasses of water a day had higher metabolic rates than those who only drank 4 glasses. Water is the body’s most natural detox. It is so important for so many different reasons!
  3. Kick up the Intensity– Next time you workout, kick up the intensity for 30 second intervals (I know.. cardio blah) and then returning to your normal speed. This will help you to consume more oxygen and your cells will burn energy faster! Less time and getting GOOD results! YES PLEASE.
  4. Omega- 3’s– Eat a lot of Omega-3 fatty acids to balance blood sugar, reduce inflammation and regulate metabolism. BEST part about this is I am taking the most PERFECT supplement for Omega-3’s. Check it out here! Really worth it!
  5. Green Tea– Believe it or not evidence shows that the active ingredient in this bad boy can boost your metabolism. The main ingredient may help improve fat oxidation and thermogenesis. Another great thing, one of my favorite metabolism boosters is called thermofit and it is actually made with green tea extract! AMAZING! Great for energy also! Find it Here.
  6.  Protein– Your body will digest protein more slowly than fat and carbs so you feel fuller longer. It all makes sense now! It also helps with thermogenesis. Diets higher in protein preserve lean body mass! Want to know something even BETTER! I have the best PROTEIN powder available! All natural ingredients. I love the vanilla but haven’t tried the chocolate yet (I definitely plan to soon)! Find it Here!

These are my top tips but there are so many more. Try to find what works for you and your body. Every one is different. Don’t give up! There are ways to motivate yourself and to kick your body into gear! Thanks for reading! Don’t forget to sign up HERE to find out how to get discounts on my products!

How To Motivate Yourself When You’re Unmotivated

 

image

Hey Guys!

Hope you’re having an amazing day so far! I just wanted to talk about something that has really been on my mind. I’m going to be honest here, lately I have really been feeling unmotivated,  and you know what? It’s COMPLETELY normal. So, don’t worry if you fall into this ‘funk’ once or twice or maybe even a few hundred times. What matters is finding your motivation again!

I came across this article and I really liked it because it made some very valid points (link at the bottom). So here’s a little summary of it and my input as well.

  1. Lower Your Goals- Exercise feels like an important thing to do. Like it’s something we SHOULD be doing obviously because everyone wants to stay healthy. This, in turn, leads to crazy fitness goals, which then leads to excuses, because these goals are intimidating. Lower the standards. Make daily goals, realistic goals. Hit those goals and make new ones. Write down these goals and have them somewhere you can see them everyday!
  2. Measure Yourself-One of the most important ways to build motivation is “mastery” according to writer Dan Pink. Choose an exercise that you will be able to progress at. Pick a skill you’re lacking, for example push-ups, and work toward overcoming that milestone. The reward will be even greater since it is coming from the activity itself.
  3. Motivate Yourself With Loss-If you absolutely HAVE to use extrinsic rewards, you are better off threatening yourself with losing something you already have. For example, I would buy a wine bottle first and give it to a friend asking them to drink it if you fail. Now if that’s not motivation, I don’t know what is. This can be done with anything you love.
  4. Reset Mentally- We are always thinking about how we divide our time up in our head. Instead, try to think about what exercising will include afterward, say, a hot shower or a nice glass of wine. (can you tell I really REALLY like wine?) This is a reward in itself.
  5. Don’t stress about FEELING motivated- Often telling yourself that you need motivation will just stress you more. My personal advice for everything is just not to think about it, just do it. Seriously. Don’t think, just do. Makes life so much easier. Mind over matter (as my boyfriend always says). The mind can be a powerful thing.
  6. Buying Clothes/Supplements- Often times, I go to Ross or Target and see the CUTEST workout clothes. Whenever I buy new workout clothes, it motivates me like no other. You can find me the same day in my living room wearing those same clothes and running in place. (HAHA). Same thing goes for Supplements. It never fails. I just order 3 different It’s Vital Supplements and Energy Bars. Once they got to my doorstep, that was all the motivation I needed to get my butt up. Plus, why not ENHANCE your results while you’re at it???
