Apple Cider Vinegar and that Shark Tank Weight Loss Product

There is currently a bottle of 60 gummies being sold as a Loss Belly Fat Product sponsored by Shark Tank for $70 a bottle and more, although Amazon has them for less.  The main ingredient is Apple Cider Vinegar.  You can buy 32 ounces of Organic Apple Cider Vinegar for $6 and there are 32 servings of 1 tablespoon in a bottle.

The Gummies come in different varieties.  Some have Beet Root Juice, B6, B12 or Calcium and Magnesium, etc.  The main ingredient they all are pushing is Apple Cider Vinegar, promising, weight management control, fat burning for fuel, reduces appetite.

Apple cider vinegar is made by fermenting the sugar from apples. This turns them into acetic acid, which is a main active ingredient in vinegar and may be responsible for its health benefits.

The main substance in apple cider vinegar — acetic acid — can kill harmful bacteria or prevent them from multiplying. It has a history of use as a disinfectant and natural preservative.  You can pour it on wounds to disinfect, pour on toenail fungus to kill it, it is amazing stuff.

Several human studies show that vinegar can increase feelings of fullness. This can lead to eating fewer calories and losing weight.

For example, according to one study, taking vinegar along with a high carb meal led to increased feelings of fullness, causing participants to eat 200–275 fewer calories throughout the rest of the day (Study 1, Study 2).

Furthermore, a study in 175 people with obesity showed that daily apple cider vinegar consumption led to reduced belly fat and weight loss (Study 3):

taking 1 tablespoon (15 mL) led to a loss of 2.6 pounds (1.2 kg)
taking 2 tablespoons (30 mL) led to a loss of 3.7 pounds (1.7 kg)

 

Over 3 months of time.

 

My point is that while taking a tablespoon of vinegar a day will have some good effects for you, don’t buy gummies on the click bait.  Always look at what they are selling you to lose weight.  There isn’t any fast quick easy solution or we would all be thin.

on Memory

Have you ever rewatched a favorite TV show or Movie and you see things you didn’t see before or somehow the point of the show or plot of the show is different than you remember?  This happened to me a lot during the last three years.  I figured since I was home I should watch all those dvd’s/vcr recordings I bought.  I literally cancelled my cable tv and just watched what I owned.  When I went back to watching new stuff, I bought a Roku streaming stick and I only buy channels I watch and when I am done with the show I cancel that channel.

but I digress….about Memory.

I looked up some articles on Memory, how the brain works.

Memory and Successful Aging

Grand Memory Tour

How Memory Works

How Human Memory Works

When I am going to perform a routine with my Ponies, I do that routine myself, over and over again, until I know at the sound of certain music, where I am supposed to be and where I am going.  I am encoding visual and audio details.  Once I have these, I can look at how to make the whole performance smoother, more fluid, how to improve the performance.  I must also practice with my Pony, to encode what I am doing as a Handler, how to make my performance artistic also.  After I perform do I retain the ability to always do this routine?  No.  I can pick it up more quickly if I go back to it without a lot of lapse in time.  If I was continually performing this routine every week, every two weeks, I would retain it, but if I simply stop, and then go back after a couple months or more, I am relearning.  The longer the lapse of time, the more I am relearning.

When I pick up my flute, can I still play it?  Yes, as I did when I started playing the flute.  I remember how to read the music, how to finger the notes.  My embouchure is weak because the muscles I need to work are weak for lack of using them the way I need to, same with diaphragm muscles to support the air flow.

Remembering a story I read or show I watched, how does this seem to change?  People change over time, how they perceive ideas and evaluate them changes,  I have emotionally and spiritually grown over the years.  Yet, I think something else occurs in addition to this.

My understanding of these articles is that we receive information through different senses and encode it.  we combine different senses together, we prioritize how important this information is.  When we recall a memory, it can be an association with something happening in real time, it can be because we consciously seek it.  However, when we go back to the file, do we go back to the original file, or the last time we recalled that memory and the influences that changed how we encoded that?  In reading these articles, one of the aspects doctors talk about is that witnesses’ should only be tested once for their recall of a memory.  Everything affects how we remember a memory, from leading questions, visuals of lineups, discussions of what happened, this new information changes how a person recalls a memory from before this encoding.  The original encoding gets photoshopped.

This is why childhood memories change, as we tell stories about them, if we embellish in any way, that gets added to the story, and our memory recall shifts.

And then there is the trivia stored in our brain, that name we can’t remember at the time but wake up at 2 am knowing.  The brain is a fascinating complex organ, the seat of intelligence, the encoder of our senses, the initiator of body movement and functions, the library we draw our interpretation of behavior from.

Just don’t be righteous regarding your memory being correct, because this seems to be a very fluid thing.

More Zion

Hiking up the West Rim Trail on Friday.  This is the trail to Angel’s Landing, only on eneeds a permit to hike off in that direction once you get to Scout Lookout.  I will be continuing along the West Rim Trail.

 

Up at Scout Lookout.

 

 

This is a mile past Scout Lookout on West Rim Trail, as far as I hiked up.  The views were magnificent.

This is the view of the Zion Valley from the Pa’rus Trail.

Zion

Jolley Gulch was about two miles up on Deertrap Mountain.  It is shaded at this point of the trail with about 3 trails leading in.  You have to be careful that you choose the correct trail up the mountain and do not head off to Ponderosa Ranch Resort.

The mornings are very special here in the Valley.

 

Zion August 10 and 11

This is about 3 miles actually along the trail to the East Rim on Deertrap Mountain and above Jolley Gulch.  The Gulch is what I am looking down over.

San Diego Comic Con 2022

I had tickets to Saturday and Sunday at Comic Com.

I wore my new Shhh Couture Latex Star Trek inspired dress with Dream Dresser boots and tights on Saturday. I felt very sexy.

On Sunday, I debuted my new Outlander Claire Fraser Red Dress with the shoes I made.  My friend, Sarge, dressed me.  The dress plus gluing the wig in place is more than one person can do.

I had a grand time and too much fun!
