Re-Body Meratrim Fruit & Flower Slimming Formula {Review}

** I received a month's supply of MeraThin free of charge in exchange for my honest review. My opinions may differ from yours.

I was recently afforded the opportunity to try a brand-new, stimulant-free weight loss product: Meratrim Fruit & Flower Slimming Formula.



  This non-stimulant formula, powered by authentic Meratrim®, offers the clinical amount of 800 mg per day, which is shown to help with weight loss. Participants in two separate human double-blind placebo-controlled studies showed statistically significant reductions in weight as well as inches lost starting in just two weeks.

About Meratrim Fruit & Flower Slimming Formula:

·         Lose weight starting in two weeks
·         Reduce waist size in just 2 weeks
·         Reduce hip size in 8 weeks
·         After 8 weeks, participants in the study who consumed Meratrim®, lost an average of 11 lbs. in body weight and reduced their waist circumference by 4.7 inches
*All Re-Body products are to be used in conjunction with a reduced-calorie diet and exercise program. 

My Thoughts:

  I was so happy to hear that there are options out there for those of us who don't tolerate caffeine well. A natural flower and fruit extract, perfect! I went in with high hopes...


  First off: The pills. I LOVE the fact that they are capsules full of powder instead of huge hard tablets. Not only is this easier on your digestive system, but it also means that more of the ingredients will be absorbed by your body. (Info coming from the former vitamin-junkie: Me) Also, they are vegetarian capsules with no gelatin, score!


  As far as results go, unfortunately, I must report that I did not see a measurable difference in waist size.  As stated above, all Re-Body products are supposed to be used in conjunction with a reduced calorie and active lifestyle, both of which I was not 100% keen on following during this particular month. I know that stress can play a big role in weight gain (or lack-of-loss, in this case) and my workload and events going on at home definitely did not help with that!

  I am pleased to say that, although it isn't a named effect of this supplement, MeraTrim seems to have curbed my appetite in part during the first 2 weeks or so of taking it. I didn't feel quite so hungry when I remembered to take it 30 minutes before a meal, which in turn allowed me to watch my portion sizes. I also incurred no negative side effects whatsoever while taking it!

  You can do more research and purchase MeraTrim online through Re-Body and at vitamin retailers nation-wide.

Novak (TV’s The Office), Rachel Griffiths (TV’s Brothers & Sisters) and Kathy Baker (Edward Scissorhands), Saving Mr. Banks was directed by John Lee Hancock (The Blind Side, The Rookie), produced by Alison Owen, Ian Collie and Philip Steuer, and written by Kelly Marcel and Sue Smith.

Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation - East Meets West DVD {Review}

**I received a copy of the following DVD for review purposes. My opinions are 100% my own and may differ from yours.

Cowabunga! Get ready for more memorable adventures with the Ninja Turtles! On March 4th, Shout! Factory, in collaboration with Saban Brands, will release Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation – East Meets West on DVD, featuring the first seven episodes of the popular series. See all the exciting showdowns in the only live-action series based on the iconic Ninja Turtlesfranchise!

Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo are four genetically mutated turtles who have grown into human-sized, ninja-powered crime-fighters living in the sewers of New York City. Under the tutelage of Master Splinter, these four teens have spent their formative years fighting their nemesis, Shredder, and his evil army. But the turtles’ world is about to change….and if you thought Shredder was bad, wait until you meet the newest TMNT foe: Dragon Lord! It will take all the power of the turtles to combat this new villain…but luckily for them, they will have help from a new ninja turtle, a female turtle named Venus De Milo!


Episodes Include:East Meets West, Part 1
East Meets West, Part 2
East Meets West, Part 3
East Meets West, Part 4
East Meets West, Part 5
The Staff Of Bu-ki
Silver And Gold



Our thoughts:
  Jace is now almost 3 and COMPLETELY in love with ninjas. He runs around the house with a super-concentrated face yelling "We're Ninjas!!!" Needless to say he's now in love with the new generation of TMNT toys and shows, but also loves to watch the older episodes on Netflix. When our copy of Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation - East Meets West showed up at out doorstep, he couldn't contain his excitement. Simply put: He loves it! From a young child's perspective, ninja turtles are ninja turtles. From an adult's view, who remembers the older (and cheesier) Ninja Turtles live-action show, it's hard to take your eyes away from the corniness. TNM is the only live-action series in the TNMT franchise and it was quite short-lived, airing for a handful of episodes in the late '90's.  Unconvincing costumes and cheesy fight sequences bring me back to my late-childhood and are still entertaining, as long as you don't head into this movie expecting to see modern graphics or effects.

  All-in-all: Die-hard TMNT fans through the ages and young ones will love this retro classic. Anyone who came into TMNT in the last few years only and expects flawless animation, probably not so much.
