Weight Loss Buddy Introduces The 3-Day Fast Start Diet for Intermittent Fasting

Intermittent Fasting Made Easy

Intermittent Fasting-Without Starving

Calorie Restriction with Specific Nutrient Rations

Intermittent Fasting has been scientifically proven to aid in weight loss, boost metabolism, and enhance hormone function.

"You can't help someone up a hill without
getting closer to the top yourself "”

— Joey Dweck

TENAFLY, NEW JERSEY, US, December 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Weight Loss Buddy has made headlines with the launch of a new 3-day fasting diet that is said to be the best yet. Unlike other fasting diets that are hard to follow, Weight Loss Buddy has put together a 3-day fasting diet meal kit that includes every single thing needed to get through the 3 days. The 3-day fasting meal kit includes an appetite suppressant to reduce hunger cravings, and pre-calculated, pre-proportioned meals to get through all three days. The Weight Loss Buddy meal kit makes it much easier to complete a 3-day intermittent fasting diet because they have taken care of the hard work. The meal kits come with three days of delicious and wholesome foods that aide in the alleviation of bloating and sugar-cravings.

The 3-day fast start meal kits are part of a pre-measured, pre-calculated 3 day eating plan. Joey Dweck the CEO of Weight Loss Buddy was quoted as saying, “We have gone to great lengths to choose, out of hundreds of foods, nutrient ratios, that were found to be the most beneficial in recent longevity studies in tricking the body into thinking it's fasting. This is the most valuable box of meals you are ever going to get. An individual would have to spend $100’s of dollars to buy these items in bulk, not to mention assembling them. You buy only what you need. Start building a new body now!” He went on to say, “Anyone can benefit from this Spring-Cleaning of sorts. It doesn’t matter how good your diet is, or how much exercise you do, the body ages and the cells accumulate damage.”

LiPO3 Appetite Suppressant Spray is included with the meal kits at no extra cost. LiPO3 is a unique formula that contains clinically proven appetite suppressants with a powerful liposome delivery system. It is made entirely in the USA. Intermittent Fasting has been scientifically proven to aid in weight loss, boost metabolism, and enhance hormone function. Some researchers believe that the rise in health problems has a lot to do with the fact that many people no longer go hungry. 3-day fasting diets are becoming hugely popular and remain to be a very healthy way to detox the body.

Bill Rini shares catered party planning tips and advice

Bill Rini

A Taste of Excellence Catering boss Bill Rini shares tips and advice for successful party planning.

STRONGSVILLE, OHIO, USA, December 28, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Luxury catering company boss Bill Rini, owner of A Taste of Excellence Catering, has, along with his highly skilled team of staff, attended to some of the Cleveland area's biggest, best, and most prestigious events. From seating arrangements to bar features and food presentation methods, here Rini reveals a series of tips and general advice to assist in successfully arranging a beautifully catered celebration, party, or special event.

"First, consider the details," says Bill Rini, "determining your budget, creating a guest list, picking a location, and setting the date and time of the event."

Next, he says, look at seating arrangements. "A seated meal works well at formal events such as weddings, galas, or where a presentation will take place," Bill Rini explains.

"A standing reception, meanwhile," he continues, "works well for events with limited space, or where you wish to encourage mingling and networking. Alternatively, partial seating is ideal when a guest list includes mixed age groups, for example."

The next decision, according to Rini, should center around bar features. "If you have a budget-conscious event, a dry bar eliminating alcohol completely will help with the expenses," he explains. "Alternatively, offering beer and wine as the only alcoholic options is cost-effective and keeps the bar line moving forward so that guests have more time to enjoy your event," the A Taste of Excellence Catering boss continues.

A special day, however, often deserves the very best, says Rini. "Events with large crowds or gatherings for an exceptional occasion may call for a full bar with complete options for mixed drinks, such as specialty cocktails like appletinis or mojitos," he explains.

Moving on to food presentation methods, Rini recommends either passed or stationary hors-d'oeuvres, a buffet, a seated meal, or French service. "Passed hors-d'oeuvres work well for any event while stationary hors-d'oeuvres are great for open houses, auctions, or receptions where guests arrive intermittently or move around within the event area," he explains.

"A buffet, meanwhile," he continues, "is a popular service choice and should be familiar to everyone, while a seated meal offers two options; either plated or French service."

At a plated meal, A Taste of Excellence Catering's tuxedoed waiters serve plated courses to individual diners, while with French service, the catering company's waiters will serve an entire table from one beautifully presented silver platter, according to Ohio native and company owner Bill Rini.

"Whether for a gathering of friends or a more formal affair, A Taste of Excellence Catering will make your occasion spectacular, with our team of experienced professionals ready to work with you on a truly memorable event," says Rini. "No matter the detail, we'll be with you throughout every step of the planning process to make sure everything goes off without a hitch," he adds, wrapping up.

Advertising Company Refuses to run Vegan Ads on Dublin Bus and Irish Rail

Dairy Takes Babies ad on Exterion Media UK bus

Go Vegan World accuses Exterion Media Ireland of preferential concern for the Irish dairy industry over the right of the public to the facts about animal use.

Exterion Media has a preferential concern for the Irish dairy industry over the rights of the public to the information in the Go Vegan World ads.”

— Sandra Higgins, Founder & Director, Go Vegan World

DUBLIN, IRELAND, December 28, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — For the third year running, Exterion Ireland, the only company that carries ads on bus and trains in Ireland, is refusing to run Go Vegan World ads providing the public with information about the dairy industry.

Go Vegan World launched its animal rights and vegan education advertising in Ireland three years ago. It now runs ads across the UK as well as internationally. It is currently running a massive campaign consisting of more than 2000 ads for Christmas and New Year in Ireland and the UK. The ads feature sheep, pigs, turkeys and cows with messages such as: “Veganism = Recognising Me as Someone, Not Something”; “Defenceless & Innocent Yet We Kill Them”; “It’s Not A Personal Choice When Someone is Killed”, and “Dairy Takes Babies from their Mothers”. The group states that the aim of the ads is to remind people that the animals we eat, wear and use in other ways are capable of physical and psychological feelings and, as a result, we do not have the right to use or kill them. The ads refer people to the free vegan guide available through their website.

The ads feature on buses, street signs, billboards and in print outlets owned by several advertising companies.

However, some ads were rejected by Exterion Media, the company contracted by Dublin Bus and Irish Rail to sell advertising space on buses and in train stations. The ad in question featured a mother cow and her calf and the statement “Dairy takes babies from their mothers.” The same ads are published by other Irish advertising companies and by Exterion Media in the UK.

Exterion has failed to-provide specific reasons to Go Vegan World for refusing to run the ad, citing only very broad grounds, “Might adversely affect the interest of the site owner” and “Might result in Exterion Media being in breach of any of its contractual obligations to a site owner,” but refusing to provide any specifics.

Go Vegan World founder and director, Sandra Higgins, notes that the Irish dairy industry runs large ad campaigns through Exterion Media in Ireland. She says that “the refusal to carry Go Vegan World ads referring to dairy points to a very unhealthy situation wherein the only company carrying ads for Irish Bus and Rail appear to have a preferential concern for the Irish dairy industry over the right of the public to the facts contained in our ads.”

Bill Rini shares details of catering company's preference for local produce

Bill Rini

Bill Rini

A long-time, keen proponent of locally sourced food and drink, luxury catering boss Bill Rini shares details of some of his favorite products and producers.

STRONGSVILLE, OHIO, USA, December 24, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — As boss of Cleveland-based A Taste of Excellence Catering, Bill Rini is well versed in the exacting needs of the luxury catering company's many clients. In order to ensure consistent quality and unrivaled freshness, Ohio native Rini is a keen proponent of sourcing local produce wherever possible.

"It's about delivering a fresher, tastier product," he explains, "while simultaneously curbing all unnecessary environmental impact and supporting the local economy."

Rini continues, "Local foods create community, and knowing where your food comes from connects you to the people who raised, grew or produced it. That's why, at A Taste of Excellence Catering, we buy Ohio Proud beef and serve Ohio City Pasta, Lucky Penny Farm products, and Mitchell's Homemade Ice Cream, all of which is local."

A favored supplier of A Taste of Excellence Catering, Lucky Penny Farm raises three breeds of dairy goat, makes artisan cheeses, and produces a delicious caramel sauce, according to Bill Rini.

Ohio City Pasta, meanwhile, he says, has produced fresh pasta, hand-crafted in Cleveland in small batches since 1990. "Their pasta is celebrated throughout the Midwest by top chefs and food-lovers alike," adds Rini of the company and its products.

Touching briefly on Mitchell's Homemade Ice Cream, the catering company boss goes on to explain that each of the brand's batches of ice cream is made by hand, predominantly using ingredients that grow well in the Ohio climate, and which are generally sourced from other local suppliers. "They take true pleasure and pride," Rini adds, "in contributing to the local area and economy, also taking special care to charge prices which are affordable to families here in the state."

Many more of A Taste of Excellence Catering's cuisine options are also thoughtfully and seasonally tailored to the local area and the broader state of Ohio, according to Rini. "We're here to deliver quality, often by dealing with local vendors and producers, and our clients certainly seem to appreciate that," he adds, wrapping up, "especially when doing so typically allows us to save them money in the process."

A public sculpture of the Russian folk character Baba Yaga will appear in the heart of London

Baba Yaga

On Christmas day the sculpture, devoted to the Russian fairytale character Baba Yaga, will be installed on Beauchamp Place, London.

LONDON, UK, December 24, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Christmas day the sculpture, devoted to the Russian fairytale heroine Baba Yaga, will be installed on Beauchamp Place. Sitting on a bench, speckled with glowing runes and traditional Russian designs, Baba Yaga will represent a unique diplomat – aside from time and politics. Her task will be to create an intercultural dialogue between two great nations, which are linked by ancient ties.

The opening will take place on December 25th at 2 p.m. on 14-15 Beauchamp Place in London. “This art project is a development of the BY (Baba Yaga) project having various objectives one of which being the story about the best qualities of the Russian people reflected in ancient fairytales. Baba Yaga – one of the most important Slavic mythological characters. She possesses wisdom, magical powers and extreme sensitivity to such a concept as justice. Furthermore, she is a mentor because she passes on her knowledge to the younger generation”, says Irina Lagoshina, the sculptor who has created several works of Baba Yaga for the BY Project.

Initially BY project was implemented so that the Russian people, aside from everything, remembered and respected their history. The popularity of the fairytale heroine prompted the authors to create the character of Baba Yaga as a “peacemaker” and an “enlightener” in various parts of the world. Art is being used as a unique language, one that can be freely and openly spoken on a variety of topics. History, humor, modern technologies and means of communication are closely intertwined in the art project.

Project BY is interesting and understandable to the younger generation. Baba Yaga is an active modern blogger (having 130 thousand followers on Instagram) and her performances with “granddaughters” twins Katia and Volga differ in enthusiasm and unite Russian traditions with mass modern culture. Clips of the “animated” Baba Yaga on a mortar in different countries have already earned several million views. The show that accompanies every new sculpture opening in different countries always gathers many spectators.

Currently the sculptures that are dedicated to Baba Yaga are installed in the USA (Miami), UAE (Dubai). The sculptures were left to remain after participation in international exhibitions of contemporary art, Miami Art Week 2017 and world Art Dubai 2018. Baba Yaga sculptures are also displayed in Russian cities: Ekaterinburg, Chelyabinsk and Ufa.

The first international project with the participation of Baba Yaga took place in December 2017 during Miami Art Week (USA). She appeared in the form of a Russian Super Heroine with unsurpassed magical powers and wisdom. One of the main project goals was to form a cultural dialogue: everyone interested could leave a signature or comment on the sculpture itself. It made the art project a unique multi-national work of art. Today the sculpture garnishes the seafront of the North Beach in Miami.

In April 2018, during the exhibition World Art Dubai a project was presented entitled “Cultural Code” dedicated to the mysteries of the Russian history and mythology. The sculpture of Baba Yaga is now installed on the La Mare promenade in a prestigious area of Dubai. It has already become a local landmark. Visitors can attempt to decipher the secret “messages of Baba Yaga” by scanning QR-codes on the surface of the art object.

A Fight to the Death Between Cannabis and Beer

Is CBD the salvation for the beer industry, including craft beer?

DENVER, COLORADO, USA, December 23, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The U.S. cannabis industry is quickly changing as many younger Americans are finding that cannabis is more appealing than liquor and beer.

A Yahoo News poll indicated that the majority of the 55 million American recreational cannabis users in 2017 were millennials. The report stated that most of these millennials used cannabis socially, with only 25 percent using cannabis alone. Millennials are also drinking far less alcohol than their parents and grandparents generations. An annual survey by Monitoring the Future found that the number of college students who drank alcoholic beverages daily decreased to 4.3 percent in 2017, a drop of more than four percentage points from the 6.5 percent of college students who used alcohol daily in 1980.

The trend of declining alcohol sales is likely to continue, with a beneficiary being the new market for legal cannabis. Adult-use or recreational cannabis was a $6 billion annual industry in 2016. A report by the Wall Street firm, Cowen and Co., indicted as state-legal cannabis spreads to additional states, the U.S. cannabis industry will increase 700 percent to $50 billion in annual legal sales by 2026. What’s significant is that this $50 billion of annual sales is only slightly less than the $58 billion annual market for alcohol.

High Pressure Zone, in a report titled, “ Cannabis: How marijuana is joining spin classes, pressed juice and craft beer as a lifestyle brand,” has reported that to attract millennials cannabis companies must evolve to become lifestyle companies. The report also stated that lifestyle brands succeed because they seamlessly fit a product to a person’s lifestyle, rather than forcing a lifestyle to change to fit a product.

But not all the buzz about millennials and their cannabis use is about the growing legal cannabis market. As a generation, millennials generally have been drinking less even before the recent legal cannabis revolution. The shift to cocktails, wine, and craft beer is definitely a key aspect of the millennial culture. Many millennials have been moving away from mass market alcohol, including “volume beer” to less expensive beer such as Budweiser BUD, or Coors TAP. Cocktails and wine are also beneficiaries of this trend.

A 2017 study by the University of Connecticut and Georgia State University indicated that in U.S. counties that had legalized cannabis programs, purchases of wine and beer decreased by 15 percent. This is a disturbing trend for the wine and beer industries and should be a wakeup call.

Beer, wine and spirits producers who fail to react to these trends are taking the risk of watching the revenues of their brands decreasing annually as the use of cannabis increases. Not content to sit on the sidelines, some major beer producers have taken action, but many others have been content to sit on the sidelines.

Constellation Brands, the North American distributor of Corona beer, the first major brewer to get involved in the cannabis industry invested $4 billion in the Canadian cannabis company, Canopy Growth. The company described their decision to invest in the industry as an offensive move rather than as a defensive strategy. In describing the cannabis market, Constellation’s CEO, Robert Sands, stated, “It became evident to us that the whole market, all channels, all forms, is going to be explosive.” Top executives of Constellation Brands and Canopy Growth have publicly stated that they believe that the legal market for cannabis products will eventually be a $200 billion annual business and that it could disrupt up to $500 billion across multiple sectors.

In August, Molson Coors Canada, a subsidiary of the multinational Molson Coors Brewing company, announced a joint venture with the Canada-based cannabis producer HEXO Corp. to develop non-alcoholic, cannabis-infused beverages for the Canadian market. In announcing the direction, Molson Coors Canada’s CEO, Frederic Landtmeters, indicated that Canada’s cannabis market could be a $10 billion annual industry and that cannabis-infused beverages could represent 30 percent of that market. He was also quoted as saying, “We decided as a business that we did not want to be a spectator as this new market opened up. And we clearly wanted to be a participant.”

What does all of this mean for craft brewers? Not only are large brewers seeing the impact of cannabis on their sales, but craft brewers are also being impacted. Bar Rescue host Jon Taffer recently stated, “Beer sales are way down right now. They’re in the toilet. And craft beer is down, premium beer is down. And I blame a lot of it on cannabis.” Taffer also stated, “Craft beer has lost its luster. The small boutique brewers have lost their luster and the beer category is in big trouble.”

While craft beer production is still increasing in the United States, its growth rate has declined. In 2017, 165 craft brewers ceased operations.

But, cannabis is providing a tremendous opportunity for many craft brewers to innovate. While U.S. legal and regulatory considerations will not allow for a beer infused with the psychoactive cannabinoid THC any time soon, many beer producers, including craft brewers, may be able to infuse their beer with the non-psychoactive cannabinoid CBD, or produce non-beer beverages with CBD.

CBD has become America’s coolest ingredient in food and drinks, and CBD infused beverages have become part of the trend in wellness beverages. Many bars are now offering CBD infused drinks or CBD shots as an addition to drinks. CBD infused beverages are definitely part of the trend in wellness beverages.

The Canada-based investment bank, Canaccord Genuity projects that the annual market for cannabis-infused beverages could be valued at $600 million in the next four years, with CBD-infused beverages reaching $260 million of that amount by 2022. The firm also indicated that revenue from cannabis-infused beverages would outpace the demand for cannabis products in general, resulting in 20 percent of the market for cannabis edibles by 2022.
