3 Things You Should Know About Fad Diets And Bad Breath



Fad diets gain popularity because they let you shed pounds quickly, but health professionals warn they often come with side effects, such as fatigue, nausea, headaches, constipation and dehydration.

One additional side effect that doesn’t get as much attention, though, is this: They can cause bad breath.

“Dehydration is the key symptom related to fad diets that can result in halitosis,” says Dr. Harold Katz, a dentist, bacteriologist and developer of TheraBreath Dry Mouth Oral Rinse and Lozenges (www.therabreath.com).

“When you’re dehydrated, your body doesn’t produce as much saliva. When you have less saliva, bacteria growth increases and causes bad breath.”

Katz suggests a few things worth knowing about fad diets and their effect on your breath:

• Fasting. When you fast – or follow a similar fad diet that focuses on consuming a single food or beverage – you’re more likely to become dehydrated, Katz says. “If you’re determined to continue fasting, just make sure you’re still drinking enough water to stay hydrated every day,” he says. “This will not only contribute to fresh breath, but will also contribute to your overall wellness.”
• Ketosis. Ketosis is a low-carbohydrate, high-protein diet that promises quick weight loss if you eat less than 20 grams of carbs in a single day, according to Environmental Nutrition. “It’s true that you can lose weight quickly through ketosis – which is the state your body going into when it doesn’t have enough carbs to feed off of – but you’re not improving your health,” Katz says. “Plus, halitosis can occur as a result of the chemicals released in the body to burn fat.”
• Protein shakes. Some people attempt to lose weight by replacing meals with protein shakes. The Mayo Clinic reports that indeed can help reduce calories, which can lead to weight loss. But if you replace too many regular meals with the shake, you end up missing on the nutritional benefits of whole foods. “That’s not all,” Katz says. “Protein and dairy can cause your breath to smell. You should brush your teeth and use an oral rinse right after you drink a protein shake, or at the very least drink some water afterward to rinse out your mouth.”
.
Instead of relying on a fad diet to lose excess pounds, Katz says, focus on changing your lifestyle habits as a whole.

“If you exercise regularly and follow a well-balanced diet that’s loaded with nutrients from fruits, vegetables, lean meats and whole grains, you can give your body the fuel it needs to thrive and maintain a healthy weight,” he says. “And your breath won’t be as likely to go rancid.”

About Dr. Harold Katz
Dr. Harold Katz developer of TheraBreath Dry Mouth Oral Rinse and Lozenges, received his degree in bacteriology from UCLA and is the founder of The California Breath Clinics and author of The Bad Breath Bible. He has been featured on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” CBS’s “Early Show” and “The View” with Barbara Walters and countless other TV shows. Dr. Katz has developed oxygenating compounds that have been used by millions around the world to eliminate bad breath. He is also the bearer of the now famous “Halimeter,” which tests the sulfur compounds in the mouth that cause bad breath. Dr. Katz’ website offers a free online bad breath test – as well as a sneaky way to tell someone they have halitosis.

Girl, Wash Your Face By Rachel Hollis Review

Girl, Wash Your Face
Stop Believing the Lies About Who You Are so You Can Become Who You Were Meant to Be
By Rachel Hollis
35542451
With wry wit and hard-earned wisdom, popular online personality and founder of TheChicSite.com founder Rachel Hollis helps readers break free from the lies keeping them from the joy-filled and exuberant life they are meant to have.

Founder of the lifestyle website TheChicSite.com and CEO of her own media company, Chic Media, Rachel Hollis has created an online fan base of hundreds of thousands of fans by sharing tips for living a better life while fearlessly revealing the messiness of her own. Now comes her highly anticipated first book featuring her signature combination of honesty, humor, and direct, no-nonsense advice.

Each chapter of Girl, Wash Your Face begins with a specific lie Hollis once believed that left her feeling overwhelmed, unworthy, or ready to give up. As a working mother, a former foster parent, and a woman who has dealt with insecurities about her body and relationships, she speaks with the insight and kindness of a BFF, helping women unpack the limiting mind-sets that destroy their self-confidence and keep them from moving forward.

From her temporary obsession with marrying Matt Damon to a daydream involving hypnotic iguanas to her son's request that she buy a necklace to "be like the other moms," Hollis holds nothing back. With unflinching faith and tenacity, Hollis spurs other women to live with passion and hustle and to awaken their slumbering goals. 

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review- Tough but fair this author shows strength in healing and helps to bring positivity while showing her truth to the reader.   The book is just another self help book and written in away that is not super different, but not at all the same.  You can tell there was thought and not just research when reading through the chapters and for the most part is was a decent paced book.  

Don McLean has new album Botanical Gardens and Tour


Iconic American singer, songwriter and performer Don McLean is set to release his new album Botanical Gardens on March 23rd 2018 via BMG.

Botanical Gardens is available for pre-order with the title track available for instant download with pre-order purchase. Click here to purchase

With over 40 gold and platinum records worldwide, his prowess for writing timeless songs is once again captured on Botanical Gardens, as he artfully weaves country, Americana, folk, and boot stomping rock for an eclectic, yet American sound that he is known for.

Botanical Gardens, his 19th studio album and first in 8 years, is arguably one of Don’s most reflective to date. As he characterizes it, “The inspiration for the project started years ago when I would walk in the beautiful gardens in Sydney, Australia near the Opera House. I would dream young dreams and it was a comfort and an inspiration. I was always young inside, like we all are, and I felt it again there.” Further reflecting on the record, Don says, “the whole album really revolves around the title song. Later on I realized that the gardens are really a metaphorical heaven, and there’s a kind of death and rebirth.”

Intimacy can be found at the heart of this record, with Don penning personal numbers looking back on a life well-lived, as well as his observations on youth and love. Recording at Watershed Studios in Nashville also allowed a different kind of intimacy for Don and his band, as they were made to “play close and feel the music”, resulting in a raw, yet tight sound throughout.

In nearly 50 years, Don’s songs have become an iconic staple of American music. His music has been performed by artists as diverse as Elvis Presley, Madonna, Fred Astaire, Drake, James Blake, Chet Atkins, Garth Brooks, Weird Al Yankovic, George Michael, Josh Groban, Coolio and Ed Sheeran.
His biggest hit, “American Pie,” was recently recognized with high honors by BMI for achieving five (5) Million-Air certified airplay awards, along with “Vincent (Starry, Starry Night)” achieving three (3) Million-Air certified airplay awards. “American Pie” also has been inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame, and is also included in the archive at the Library of Congress. Don McLean was inducted in the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2004.

About Don McLean:

A New York native, Don McLean is one of the most revered and respected songwriters in American history. After paying his dues in the New York club scene in the late ‘60s, he went on to score mega-hits like “American Pie,” “Vincent (Starry, Starry Night),” “Castles in the Air” and many more. In 2004, McLean was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame by country superstar Garth Brooks. “American Pie” has brought great happiness and hope to millions of people through the years and continues to be honored for its success. In 2000, the song was named one of the Top 5 Songs of the 20th Century by the RIAA and in 2002 was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. 2017 brought a huge honor when the iconic song was inducted into the Library of Congress’ National Recording Registry, joining less than 500 works including “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” classical music compositions, infamous live broadcasts and similar recordings. McLean continues to tour both North America and abroad bringing a mix of his classic hits with an array of new works, some of which will be released in 2018.

Cassandra's Review -  With a golden voice and lyrics that would melt anyone's heart, this artist is just wonderful.   The new album is really good and reflects just how amazing of a talent this really neat guy is.   I was really blessed to be able to review Botanical Gardens.  Don Mclean brings the softer side of music with a more groovy pace.

With this Click, I Thee Wed by Bonnie R. Paulson

“Uh, oh, what did I do?”

A lonely divorcee…

A rancher who can lose everything…

One website that matches them for marriage…

They have to learn about the importance of decisions and family or lose their one shot at love.

Stuck in a town where everyone knows her and her ex-husband, Rachel is distinctly aware of who chose his side – everyone – and who chose her side – no one. Even her hairstylist won’t schedule her.

But when she finds herself alone with a bottle of chianti and the internet, Rachel stumbles upon Clickandwed.com. The survey is easy and clicking “I Do” seems to be the magic button she’s been searching for.

Before she can snap out of her decision, she finds herself packed and flying across the country to meet her new husband.

Would her new life be better or worse than the hell she left behind?

Love Colored Pencils by Vivian Wong Review

Love Colored Pencils
Vivian shares her love of colored pencils and explains that one way "baby-artists" learn to be better is by copying what they see. Love Colored Pencils is designed to enable exactly this.

On one side of each spread, Vivian demonstrates a technique or she colors in a subject, and on the opposite page or the next spread, the reader is encouraged to copy what they see, drawing directly in the book. Exercises throughout offer fun ways to explore drawing while being inspired by Vivian Wong's popular and colorful drawing style. This is a book for all levels of artist who want to explore this versatile and fun medium with a colorful and talented artist baby step by baby step.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's review- I really enjoyed spending time learning as well as teaching my children with this wonderful resource.  While we do not write in the books we do have plenty of paper handy to create and for this book we even had colored pencils.  It was great to see the actual process being done in front of you step by step and encouraged my middle aged kids to be more excited about learning while keeping my teens interested. 

A Light on the Hill by Connilyn Cossette Review

A Light on the Hill (Cities of Refuge, #1)
After being branded during the battle of Jericho, Moriyah has had no prospects for marriage--until now. She hopes to please the man, but things go horribly wrong and she is forced to flee for her life. Seeking safety at one of the Levitical cities of refuge, she is unprepared for the dangers she faces, and the enemies--and allies--she encounters on her way.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  I story that could be real in a time that was so terrible for many women.  The author clearly has knowledge of the real story but blended it so seamlessly that it is like reading a new one.  Adding characters that could easily be felt when reading about them made this a more intense read that seem to pass the time a little too quickly. 

I Can Only Imagine A Memoir By Bart Millard with Robert Noland Review

35554372
The captivating story behind the bestselling single in the history of Christian music—and the man who wrote it

MercyMe’s crossover hit, “I Can Only Imagine,” has touched millions of people around the world. But few know about the pain, redemption, and healing that inspired it. Now Bart Millard, award-winning recording artist and lead singer of MercyMe, shares how his dad’s transformation from abusive father to man of God sparked a divine moment in music history.

Go behind the scenes of Bart’s life—and the movie based on it—to discover how God repaired a broken family, prepared Bart for ministry through music, and wrote the words on his heart that would change his life forever. I Can Only Imagine is a front-row seat to witnessing God’s presence throughout Bart’s life. Whether falling in love with his childhood sweetheart or mourning his father’s death, founding MercyMe or flailing in the midst of its success, Bart continues to place his trust in God’s plans—plans that continue to surprise and surpass what Bart could have ever imagined.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  To gain healing and trust is a very hard notion if you have been victimized in any capacity at any age.   To gain emotional comfort in your own skin is also a struggle after abuse.  To look in the mirror and know your going to be alright is the best feeling and to read this book takes you on a journey of a struggle through to a finish that is worth checking out.   I feel that even if you have not suffered in life, this book will still reach your heart and spirit.  After reading it and then listening to the song again it was so much more then before and worth the read. 

Finish First Winning Changes Everything By Scott Hamilton Review

35540971
Go for the win! Achieve excellence and be better than you've ever been!

In his years as a professional ice-skater, Olympic Gold Medalist Scott Hamilton learned to embrace the mind-set of working hard to "beat" the competition. But it seems competition has gotten a bad rap these days. We've bought into the belief that it is unfair to participants to rank performance. Yet competition is in fact a good thing because it's about working toward excellence.

Finish First is a wake-up call for business leaders, entrepreneurs, spouses, parents, and even students to stop settling for mediocre and begin to revitalize their intrinsic will to achieve excellence and go for the win. Most of us feel we were made for something more, but we're often afraid to allow ourselves to be competitive because we think our finishing first might somehow rob others of their chance to shine. This book encourages the hidden potential, the champion within all of us, to come out--which eventually brings our family, marriage, career, business, and the world around us the greatest possible good.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  FIlled with both struggles and finishes this book is a true open and honest way to get to know the thoughts of this author.  I could feel his words and know that they were written to be understood more deeply.  The book gives a positive outcome for harder workers in life but on a more verbal level. 

90's Fun with Pressman Toys Games Review

As Seen on Site:

 Beware as you embark on this treacherous journey! In The Oregon Trail: Hunt for Food Card Game, you must work together with your fellow travelers to collect 600 pounds of meat. However, you will face many deadly threats during your hunt: you might get bitten by a snake, break your leg, or get trapped by obstacles and never make it back to the trail.

In this game, each roll can be a life-or-death matter. For example, as a team, you must roll a 1 or 2 to kill a bear. With these odds, you must determine the best way to reach 600 pounds of meat. If at least one member of your party survives to collect 600 pounds of meat, everyone wins. It’s harder than it sounds.

Luckily, if you have our original The Oregon Trail Card Game, you can play this game as an extension or on its own. This add-on feature will allow you to carry your food and supplies to our original game. However, if you die in this game, both games are over.

Despite these obstacles, rest assured that this team-dynamic game will bring you and your fellow comrades closer than ever as you trek along The Oregon Trail. With 2-6 players, ages 12 and up, the possibilities are endless. Will you kill a bison? Or die from drowning? Your fate depends on your strategic skills, teammates, and even your dice.

Are you up for the challenge? Bring this classic computer game to life and gather your fellow travelers for The Oregon Trail: Hunt for Food Card Game, exclusively at Target.

Cassandra's Review-  This time around I did things a little differently. I invited older people to play instead of my kids for a change, why you may ask...The games are all 90's nostalgia with an update and I wanted the best chance for a great experience.  Sure the kids gotta play after the adults this time around.   The extension game can also be played by itself and was fun after reading and explaining all the rules as well as checking out the instructional video from pressman toys. 
 Calling all ACME agents to figure out Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?!?! Can you handle this challenge, Gumshoes? It looks like Carmen’s gang has pulled another caper.

Pressman

In the Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? Card Game, you will be on a top-secret mission to recover the greatest treasures known to mankind – The Grand Canyon, the Statue of Liberty’s Torch, and more. Get ready to jet set across the globe. Your assignment is to apprehend Carmen Sandiego, track the location of her hideout, and determine which loot she stole.

Gumshoes, your goal is to eliminate as many Loot, Location, and Henchman Cards as possible by finding the matching Loot and Location Cards. This will ultimately lead you to Carmen Sandiego and one Loot-Location Card set.  Just like any good detective, you must be vigilant in collecting evidence to solve this mystery. In your Top-Secret Evidence Journals, keep track of your fellow Gumshoes’ cards by writing down their Location and Loot Cards and whether they’re at the top, center, or bottom of their piles.

If you do not know where Carmen is but you think you’ve discovered matching Loot and Location Cards, call out “I have a warrant!” Once you zero in on Carmen’s location, you must declare “I have a warrant for Carmen’s arrest.” The first Gumshoe to make a Loot-Location match and successfully reveal Carmen wins the game. But beware, if you make an incorrect accusation, Carmen can escape!

Can you Catch Carmen? The search is on with this game, available exclusively at Target.

Cassandra's Review- There was not a lot ot this game and I think I was super hyped about the idea of a game that would be exactly like the PC game, while it is not, we did have fun after reading the longer instructions and trying this one out. 
 Welcome to the Hidden Temple! Where the rooms are filled with lost treasures that are protected by mysterious Mayan Temple Guards. Only Olmec knows the legends behind the treasures in his temple. Six teams will begin their journey, but only one will earn the chance to enter the Temple and retrieve the lost treasure. But beware – to earn this privilege, you must endure tests of fortitude and intelligence, winning the Pendants of Life to protect you from the dreaded Temple Guards who are protecting the artifacts. Do you have what it takes to take on all three rounds and escape from the Temple in time? The choices are yours and yours alone!

To be victorious, you must retrieve a lost treasure and successfully escape the Temple as a team or individually. With your fellow contestants, you must decide what lost treasure you seek. In round 1, the first three teams to cross the treacherous Moat twice will advance to the next round. One player from the eliminated team becomes Olmec and another eliminated player becomes the host, Kirk Fogg.

Round 2 takes you to the Steps of Knowledge, where you will undergo various mental challenges. Be one of the first two teams to answer two questions correctly. Listen carefully as the Olmec reads the legend aloud for clues, as correct answers are the only way to earn a chance to enter Olmec’s Temple.

Your strength and speed will be tested in round 3: The Temple Games. Compete to earn Pendants of Life in three rigorous challenges, including the Golden Cup of Belshazzar, Galileo’s Cannonball, and The Smashed Printing Plate of Frederick Douglass. If you make it through all three and earn the most Pendants of Life, you may finally enter the Temple!

Alas, round 4: The Temple Run! You must race through the Temple, retrieve the lost treasure, and escape. Your time begins as soon as Olmec lowers his gate. Watch out for the Temple Guards and be mindful of the clock, for you only have three minutes to complete your mission – or you will be trapped in the Temple forever. Are you brave enough to uncover the legends of the Hidden Temple?

Cassandra's Review- If you have never seen the show, this might be a bit hard to figure out.  While the instructions are clear and the instructional video is on point, some of my guests still king of struggled and I think it is because there was so many active players at one time it became overwhelming to keep track and keep things fair.   The younger kids would not play it and the adults had fun to a point.  It is a super cool game based on an actual TV show back ion the day. 
RING! Class is back in session at Bayside High School! You’ll be reaching “squad goals” with Zack, Jessie, Kelly, Slater, Lisa, and Screech as you hit the school hallways or visit The Max, your favorite café hangout. In the official Saved by the Bell Game, you’ll relive the classic 90’s sitcom and the unforgettable episodes.

Whether you identified as a trouble maker like Zack, a jock like Slater, a nerd like Screech, a beauty queen like Kelly, a fashionista like Lisa or a straight-A student like Jessie – there’s something for everyone to channel their high school self! To begin, select your favorite player to travel throughout this retro-90s gameboard visiting various locations such as homeroom, Zach’s room, and more.

Your homework assignment: Be the first player to collect one of each Character Card, or 3 Character Cards of the same player. Once you spin “View a Scene,” you’ll have a few seconds to glance at snapshots of classic scenes from the show. Be prepared to answer random questions. So, study up and don’t flunk this memory test to win a Character Card!

If you spin a number, you must move your character that number of spaces on the board. You can land on “Time Out” and steal from your fellow players. You’ll even receive your own Yearbook to collect your Character Cards, but don’t doodle on Zack – you must be focused to get an A+! Once you’ve collected one card of each Character or three cards of a single Character, you’ve won the game and you’ve been… Saved by the Bell!

Cassandra's Review- While I LOVE to teach my kids all about the games I played in my youth as well as shows etc, total nostalgia fan by the way.  This game was not fun for my younger kids.  Unfortunately they had no idea what was going on.  The game would be an amazing blast of past fun for anyone who was familiar with the show or a super fan.  I was so glad to have invited adults to play with me this time around because there was a cool factor flowing throughout the game play. 

I really have a great time trying out the complimentary games that I received.

Jen Geigle Johnson $25 Amazon Gift Card or Paypal Cash Giveaway


The Nobleman’s Daughter by Jen Geigle Johnson

England, 1819
While British high society primps and plays, the impoverished citizens of London languish. But there are those fighting for the freedom of common citizens—including two members of the aristocracy who secretly champion revolution. In the drawing rooms of the upper class, Lady Amanda and Lord Nathaniel flirt and tease with the best of them as she pretends to win every heart in London for sport, and he, to conquer them. But in truth, their flirtation is merely a façade designed to keep their clandestine actions hidden from the ton— and from each other. When Nathaniel presents himself as a potential suitor, the attraction between the two is undeniable—but the faces they portray to the world are not enough to win each other’s hearts.

When their crusade for London’s poor unites them more deeply than they could imagine, Amanda and Nathaniel struggle to trust one another with their true ideals and identities. But when the call to action leads Amanda into the path of danger, she can only hope that Nathaniel will see through her frivolous pretense. Because now, only the aid of the suitor she loves most—but trusts least—can save her.

Always Fall Forward by Todd Gerelds Review

Always Fall Forward: Life Lessons I'll Never Forget from "The Coach"
by Todd Gerelds
35755929
"Make your mistakes full speed." "Always fall forward." "There are worse things than dying."

Todd Gerelds, author of the bestselling book and hit movie Woodlawn, believes the most meaningful life lessons he has learned have been on the playing field. The voice of his coach rings in his head when life gets tough or when his day becomes off-kilter. It just happens that his coach's voice is also his father's. His dad was Tandy "The Coach" Gerelds, the subject of Woodlawn and the man who led his team to victory in the racially charged atmosphere of 1970s Alabama. The Coach led his team both on and off the field, always speaking wisdom wherever he went. For him, leading his team wasn't a responsibility he took lightly. After all, the Coach wasn't just training these boys to be good football players--he was helping them build the foundation to becoming good men.

In Always Fall Forward, join the Coach's son, Todd Gerelds, as he reflects on fifty-two of his dad's most formative "coachisms." From "Your stance is critical" to "One play at a time," you, too, will start hearing the strong and encouraging voice of the Coach when life hits you hard. Packed with life application, Always Fall Forward challenges men each week to live the way the Coach lived--grounded in faith and willing to stand up for what he believed--no matter the cost.

You won't want to forget these lessons--both on and off the field.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review Q & A-

- What did you like about the book and why? At first I thought it was going to be smug and pretentious or stuffy or maybe it would be a sad homage to a man that was loved by his son.  I enjoyed that fact that it was a little of both but with good spirit and uplifting moments blended in.  You can really tell that this author has a love for his father and a respect that went deep. 

- What did you not like about the book and why? While I understand the point of the book, I feel like the author could have shown more sides of the stories and feelings in a way that was more connecting instead of kind of putting it out there. 

- What did you learn? Again I feel like the author really had a love and respect for his father and wanted to share his knowledge with the world. 

- To whom would you recommend this book and why? A male late in their years or to someone who has just lost a father, perhaps someone who needs a bit of support and healing.
