A QUICK WAY TO WEIGHT LOSS? Juice proponents are quick to point out, however, that long-term juice diets should not be seen as the magic bullet to weight loss. Roberts, whose work with the Sharks has given her an intimate understanding of the athletic body type and its nutritional requirements, explains the cons of sustained juice fasting to lose weight. “Apart from the loss of fibre that interferes with gut health, the high levels of fruit sugars and the lack of protein are major triggers to ill health some time down the line. If you’re aiming for good health, and muscle mass, which becomes even more significant to overall physical wellbeing as we age, juicing alone can severely compromise your health.” Strachan adds: “Most juice fasts contain far too few kilojoules, which causes your metabolism to slow down in order to conserve energy, so once you return to your usual diet, you’ll most certainly end up regaining the weight, and maybe even more. Avoiding solid foods that contain essential nutrients such as fibre can be extremely detrimental to your health. Fibre is extremely important for your digestive health, which is your gut. Good gut flora determines your entire immune system and how well-equipped you will be to fight off disease and infection.”
Apart from the loss of fibre that interferes with gut health, the high levels of fruit sugars and the lack of protein with sustained juice fasting are major triggers to ill health some time down the line.
• Juicing should never substitute medical treatment or medical diagnosis. Always consult with your physician and a dietician before stopping a course of medication.
• Pesticides and bacteria thrive on unwashed fruits and vegetables. Thoroughly wash your ingredients before juicing, along with the utensils and cutting boards you use to prepare your ingredients for the juicer.
Juicers are a big investment. Do your research before purchasing. Masticating, or cold-pressed, juicers crush and mash ingredients, using every last bit of produce being pulped. Consumer Reports (http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/juicers/buying-guide.htm) says these juicers can jam when grinding tougher fruit and veg varieties, so look for options with a reverse button. Although slightly more expensive, masticating juicers tend to leave more healthful and fibre-rich pulp in the juice. Centrifugal juicers are the second most-common types of juicers available. Known commonly as “juice extractors”, they use a rapidly whirling disc that cuts the produce, then spins it to separate the juice from the pulp.

• While drinking fresh is always recommended, you can store your juice in an air-tight, preferably glass container to drink later on. Exposure of the juice to air and bacteria may do you more harm than good.

The world is changing rapidly and women are playing a major role in politics and business, on movie screens, on the sporting field, and in everyday life. Gone are the days when most women stayed home and kept a low profile. Today’s women are sharp, sassy and out there, making waves and making a name for themselves, achieving in a multitude of different spheres that were once the domain of their male counterparts only. With this changing face of society, more and more women are turning to nonsurgical aesthetic solutions to keep themselves looking good. Injectable nonsurgical solutions are becoming a part of many women’s beauty regimes, along with regular manicures and trips to the hairdresser. Allergan, a major pharmaceutical company and manufacturer of soft-tissue fillers and muscle-relaxing neurotoxin, recently completed a massive study undertaken to determine what drives women to investigate and undergo these procedures. The results are fascinating.
7 700 WOMEN INTERVIEWED ACROSS 16 COUNTRIES A total of 7 700 women were surveyed across 16 different countries, including Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Mexico, the Netherlands, South Korea, Spain, Thailand, Turkey, the UK and the US. Their ages ranged from 18 to 65 (average age was 40).

Unlocking the potential of
GREEN TEA Is every day a struggle? Do you suffer from low mood? No energy? Blood sugar imbalance? Extra ﬂab that you can’t shake off ? A feeling of constant tiredness?
urely we are meant to feel better than we do. Many of us are plagued with ill health and chronic inflammation, thanks to our modern lifestyles, increasingly high stress levels, polluted environment, poor gut health, and an over-reliance on processed, chemically enhanced foods. We often don’t even know we are suffering from inflammation, as it goes undetected for years before it manifests into a chronic disease. This low-grade systematic inflammation is known as the silent killer. We need to rethink our approach to disease. To take a biological system from dysfunction back to function, before disease sets in, we often need to support good diet, pure water, clean air, regular exercise, enough sleep and stress management with some good nutritional supplementation. Most chronic disease starts with inflammation, so a supplement to reduce inflammation and to help the body’s detoxification processes is instrumental in damage-proofing the body from the modern world we live in. Clinical studies of green tea have demonstrated its potential ability to reduce inflammation, balance blood sugar (assisting those with insulin resistance), improve liver function and detox, and reduce negative cholesterol levels, as well as the risk of heart disease. Over and above these benefits, green tea is known to boost the metabolism, allowing you to burn more fat for energy, resulting in weight loss. People using green tea report increased vitality, energy and a feeling of wellbeing.
The challenge, however, is that to reap the benefits of green tea, you need to drink upwards of 10 cups of high-quality tea per day, every day. Green tea is active for only three to four hours, meaning it constantly needs to be taken. The same challenge lies in regular green tea supplements; to really obtain the benefit, you need to take them throughout the day, often three to five times per day. A group of South African scientists has developed an extract named Origine 8, which has been proven, through a single capsule taken once per day, to deliver over 24 hours of activity and 15 times more of the beneficial catechin found in green tea than regular supplementation. The clinical evidence proves we can conveniently and effectively unlock the potential of green tea.
While green tea is generally regarded as safe, it is important that you consult with a medical professional trained in botanicals should you have a health-related condition. Users may or may not experience an initial detox process, which is a positive, as the body rids itself of unnecessary toxic overload. It’s suggested that you drink additional water during this time. While green tea will start to have an immediate effect from the very first time you take it, the benefits will increase gradually over time.

WHY IS SO IMPORTANT TO WOMEN TODAY
• If you do decide to go on a “juice fast” or “juice cleanse”, make sure your recommended dietary allowance needs are met. Never go below 1 200 calories or 5 500 kilojoules (this is the minimum amount of energy required to maintain healthy bodily functioning).

foremost for their own satisfaction – validation from others matters less. Seventy-four percent of women said they make the effort to look good primarily for themselves, compared to 37% for their partners and 15% for their friends. Across the world, a wedding was the key event that women said they wanted to look and feel beautiful for. A new job or career came second for women in Brazil (46%), Italy (44%) and Spain (48%), while in Thailand and South Korea it was a new relationship.
WHAT IS DRIVING WOMEN’S DESIRE TO ENHANCE THEIR APPEARANCE? These women were asked various questions about their concept of beauty, concerns about their face, their facial skincare regimes, treatments they would consider or would never have, and their feelings about wrinkle-relaxing injections and dermal fillers. Across all countries, women want to look beautiful first and
When asked why they would consider seeking an aesthetic treatment, 42% of women cited a desire to boost self-confidence – the same percentage that claimed a desire to improve the look of sagging skin. What we are seeing is that it is no longer just about what they see in the mirror; it’s not only about how they look; it’s also about how they feel about themselves. Over 40% of respondents want to boost their self-confidence. Even in Brazil, where physical looks are considered very important and beauty-enhancement treatments are widely accepted, 48% of women said the main trigger for treatment would be a desire to boost self-confidence and feel good about themselves, compared to 39% who said the main reason for treatment would be to treat fine wrinkles on the face.
older women is to try and soften this disconnect, helping them to project an image that correlates with how they feel. When asked what elements contributed most to a person’s outer beauty, 56% of respondents stated skin quality and complexion, 56% said body shape and figure, 48% eyes, 35% facial shape, 32% facial harmony, 27% hair, 17% bone structure, 17% skin tone, and 17% lips/mouth shape. With so much emphasis being placed on skin quality, it’s not surprising that 81% of respondents follow a regular skincare regimen, with women in Asia (China, South Korea and Thailand) spending the most on this. Global beauty concerns varied from country to country, but bags under the eyes and dark circles are the most common concern, followed by a double chin, loss of fullness in the cheeks, and loss of volume in the lips. Sagging is a major concern in France and Mexico, and age spots in Japan and Brazil.
“The most beautiful thing you can wear is confidence.”
LOOKING GOOD FOR ONE’S AGE IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN LOOKING YOUNGER
Just as women are starting to play more pivotal roles in all levels of society, so they are also starting to take control of their appearance. Most don’t want to look younger; they want to look their best and make the most of what nature has given them. Many women are proud of their age and the life experiences that come with age. This explains the rapid growth in nonsurgical aesthetic interventions worldwide. A recent study (HARMONY study) of 100 patients who were treated with a combination of wrinkle-relaxing injections, dermal fillers and an eyelash-growing compound found that all of the patients reported a significant improvement in satisfaction with facial appearance, psychological well-being, and social confidence levels.

THE MAIN GOAL FOR SEEKING NONSURGICAL AESTHETIC TREATMENTS IS A DESIRE TO BOOST SELF-CONFIDENCE Women across the world are entering a new era of self-realisation: an era where they want to look good for themselves and the emotional impact of how they look is more important than the changes they see in the mirror. Women want to look good so they can feel good. When asked what motivates them to use beauty treatments, 63% said “beautification”, or looking beautiful, compared to 50% who wanted to address the signs of ageing.
INNER BEAUTY VS OUTER BEAUTY Women all over the world agree that there are two aspects to beauty: inner and outer beauty. Inner beauty reflects attributes such as kindness and loyalty that define one’s character, while outer beauty refers to physical appearance. Which is more important? It varied according to country and age of the respondent. In Mediterranean and South American countries, outer beauty was rated as more important, with Turkey rating it the highest, while in Canada and the US and Scandinavian countries, inner beauty was rated as more important. Globally, the older a woman is, the more likely they are to rate inner beauty as more important. What happens in reality is that women often begin to look more tired, sad, and angry as they age, and subsequently their physical appearance doesn’t reflect their inner beauty. The art in treating
WHAT CAN WE EXPECT IN THE COMING YEARS? As the role of women in society continues to grow, I predict we will continue to see a growth in the skincare and nonsurgical aesthetic procedure industries. The fact that a woman’s outward appearance is linked to her self-confidence levels and that women are choosing these procedures for themselves rather than for their partners or anyone else is indicative of the shift we are seeing in global attitudes already. Sixty-five percent of women surveyed around the world agree that facial fillers are more socially acceptable than they were five years ago. Nonsurgical interventions such as skin resurfacing combined with injectables will continue to be the cornerstones of treatments that women seek to boost their self-confidence and self-esteem. In a world where women are increasingly taking centre stage, looking good and feeling good about oneself go hand in hand.
