Bikini Body 3.0 Live Chat *Recap*

Here is a recap from the I Want My Bikini Body 3.0 Live Chat. P.S. So much useful info!! Hope you enjoy! :)

Rehan Jalali (Nutrition Expert, all natural bodybuilder):

  • Recommends liquid fish oil over capsules (Take 1-3 grams daily, prefers Barlean's Fish Oil brand)
  • Recommends Women's Blend multi-vitamin from SuperNutrition
  • Says that bruising can be caused by an iron deficiency. Silica also helps with bruising
  • Green tea, Oolong tea and BioCell Collagen II supplement is good for the skin. The hyaluronic acid in BioCell adds moisture & softness
  • Chia seeds are good for appetite control
  • Guggul lipid is good for acne
  • Fat burner pills are NOT magic, they are supplements to good diet & exercise. He recommends: Ab Gone Extra Strength (w/Green Tea), Clarinol Tonalin CLA targets abs, Red Line Princess
  • If you have a sugar addiction, then you can: add cinnamon, switch out sugars and eat more fruit/honey, and eat more protein
  • Rehan's books: The 6 Pack Diet plan, and Sports Supplement Buyer's Guide
  • To strengthen hair make sure you're getting your amino acids (methionine)
  • Recommends these Super Foods: Acai berry, Asahi, juicaroo (spelling?), agave nectar, raw unfiltered honey
  • Carrots are FULL of sugar. Not really a good vegetable, helps to store fat in your body.
  • For cellulite, vibrations such as using a jumprope are good. The cream/lotion aminophylline is good (derivative of caffeine). Yohimbine lowers body fat, but MUST be taken with a fat (for example: almonds). It does this by blocking the alpha 2 receptors that store fat in the lower body.
  • Take 2-3 cups of green tea a day
  • Take 20-30g (3-4oz) of protein at a time at meal time
  • Moderation is good for complex carbs. Never eliminate a food group.
  • If you have high cholesterol, then fiber is key.
  • Diuretics should only be taken for 1 week MAX (i.e. prior to special occasion/event). Dandelion root is a natural diuretic and helps if you have extra water weight
  • Caffeine is mild diuretic, EXCEPT when exercising
  • Recommends VPX / Syngex Zero Impact protein powder

Nerida Joy (Skin Expert):

  • If you have dry, dull skin you need to exfoliate 1x a week. Your skin needs some mild retinols and AHAs to give your skin a boost/glow
  • Prefers papaya enzyme (papain) or pineapple enzyme. Does not like pumpkin enzyme for the skin.
  • Blackheads are caused by overactive sebaceous glands. To reduce blackheads, you must keep skin especially clean before you goto sleep at night. Remember to exfoliate 1x a week, and if your skin is extra oily, change the pillow covers every 3-4 days.
  • How to Cleanse the Skin: Your #1 priority should be to use a nonfoaming cleanser. Do not wet face. Apply/massage cleanser onto skin in AM & PM. Use wet warm wash cloth in circular motion. Then rinse off face. At nighttime do a second application. Pat dry.
  • Clarisonic helps with cleansing, but you NEED thick skin for it (so be VERY careful). If you have sensitive skin, it actually thickens skin out over time (not in a good way though). Nerida does not recommend that you use this often.
  • For dark undereye circles & blue veins, you want to use Vitamin K, arnica or melo extract to strengthen the wall
  • For dark spots, Resorcinol is NO-NO. Mild retinols are best.
  • If you have melasma, use sunscreen (at least 50 SPF on fair skin). Albaquin (spelling?) comes in a tin and is safe for lightening skin. Helps with freckles.
  • You must apply eye creams all around your eyes INCLUDING your eyelids to add firmness. Most people forget the eyelids
  • Indoor lighting can affect your skin pigment
  • If you have oily skin (which many people do NOT), you must exfoliate every 3-4 days. Most people have COMBINATION skin.
  • Dr Perricone recommends alpha lipoic acid and DMAE (helps with chicken neck & tone in skin). This can also help tone other areas of the body
  • Sunscreen - solar protection SFP 40-50, water resistant
  • Apply moisturizer FIRST, then sunscreen on face.
  • Food intolerances: Dairy can cause milea (white bumps) to develop especially along the jawline. Wheat can cause skin to feel gritty. If your skin is too oily, then you might have an intolerance to peanuts or citris fruits
  • Makeup: Minerals are great EXCEPT for dry skin. (Nerida uses Colorescience Sunforgettables - also sold at her office)

Anthony Slater (General Manager of Core Performance):

  • ... Will Update soon! (Once I finish watching the chat)
