There are many reasons that we gain weight.It’s an insecurity for a lot of us, and sometimes even when we cut our calories we still can’t manage to drop those last few pounds. Now that summer is unfortunately coming to an end, it’s often harder to stay on top of a healthy diet and stay in a workout routine. There are a lot of smoothies and drinks out there claiming to help you shed pounds. It’s hard to decipher which ones actually work or not. So to cut down your research time, I’ve done all the trial and errors for you. Below I’ve listed some drinks that can help rev up your metabolism and can teach you how to lose weight easily. Losing weight should be fun and your drinks should be too.

1. Green Tea

    • Bring 8 oz of water to a boil
    • soak 2 green tea bags for 3-5 minutes
    • take mint, lemon and honey to add flavor

    This is a drink that you can drink hot or cold. If you drink it cold, I recommend putting the mint in ice cubes. I like drinking this first thing in the morning because it boosts your metabolism and is a healthy way to start the day.

          Drinking black coffee can speed up your metabolism by almost 10 percent. It’s the caffeine that gives metabolism a boost by revving bodily functions. I recommend black coffee first thing in the morning, or right before a workout. To add some flavor without the calories you can add a pinch or two of cinnamon.

                  8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

                  8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

                  We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

                  On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

                  Advertising

                  Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

                  1. Smart Door Locks

                  A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

                  2. Smart Kitchen Tools

                  Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

                  3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

                  If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

                  4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

                  These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

                  5. Nest Thermostat

                  This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

                  Advertising

                  6. Smart Lighting

                  Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

                  7. Google Chromecast Ultra

                  Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

                  8. Canary

                  This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
