How to achieve your health and weight goals this summer!
The summer season is upon us and for most of us that means backyard BBQs, drinking a little more, eating a little more, and slacking off on our usual exercise routine. Although it can be stress relieving and fun to lessen our inhibitions throughout the summer season, many of us cruise into autumn feeling run down and hung over.
So let’s focus on what can be done to help keep our bodies and minds functioning at top notch this summer. Milk thistle as mentioned in previous blogs is an excellent liver cleanser. It is a great supplement to have on hand for those of us who like to indulge in summer season cocktails, but still want to be mindful of keep our livers in top notch shape.

The fibre in the psyllium husk will expand in the stomach and create a feeling of fullness so when you sit down for a meal or arrive at a party your already half way to feeling full without all the calories. In addition it is recommended that an adult have 25-30 grams of fibre a day and with 8 grams per serving, psyllium husk can be an excellent addition to your diet even if you’re not trying to watch weight.
