NEW YORK, Jan. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Expert trend-tracking company Majestic Media™ claims "combo-pilling," using more than one weight-loss supplement at a time, is the hottest trend on the market (find a list of the most popular combinations at the end of this article). And they've found one woman who swears the practice helped her not only lose weight, but completely change her life.
Mindy DeForest's wake-up call about her weight problem was heartbreaking and profound: her sister died of colon cancer. "My sister was overweight, and I knew that being overweight myself put me more at risk for all sorts of health issues," she says. "I knew something had to change."
At 208 pounds, Mindy was the heaviest she'd ever been. Even having children hadn't caused her to gain so much weight, but the stress of caring for and eventually losing her sister, as well as being in an unhappy marriage, had caused her weight to balloon. "I'm a total stress eater," she says. "I kept turning to food for emotional reasons, and I was really putting on weight."
Like most people, Mindy had tried dieting in the past. Over the course of ten years she tried Weight Watchers, Body for Life, ephedra... pretty much everything. But unfortunately, nothing was working for her.
Mindy decided to try losing weight one more time, so she began working with a personal trainer. It didn't take long before her trainer realized that a big part of her weight-gain issues revolved around stress eating, so he recommended she try a product called Relacore®.
"He told me it was a 'belly fat' pill that could help me feel less stressed, give me energy, and improve my mood," Mindy says. She admits she was pessimistic after having tried so many products that hadn't worked in the past, but says, "My trainer really believed in it, so I agreed to give it a try."
It didn't take long before Mindy was convinced of Relacore's effectiveness. "I really noticed a difference in my mood. I was in the process of getting divorced and was worried I'd suffer from depression, but Relacore made a huge difference for me. I never felt down. I stopped my 'nervous' eating. And I could really tell from my mood when I missed a day, so I knew it was doing something for me."
Before long, the inches started dropping off, and Mindy's entire life began to change. "My self-esteem went through the roof. I started getting job offers, and I felt like for the first time in years, people were paying attention to me. When I was overweight it was like I just blended into the background, but then I started getting thin and all of a sudden people were noticing me."
But then Mindy hit the dreaded "weight-loss plateau" and almost gave up on ever reaching her goal... until her trainer recommended a second product: Zantrex®-3 High Energy Fat Burner. "He told me it could help me get past my plateau and start losing again," Mindy says, "and I'd had so much success with Relacore that I didn't hesitate to try it."
Mindy added Zantrex to her Relacore/diet and exercise regimen, and it gave her the extra boost she needed to blow through her plateau and start dropping even more weight.
"With help from Relacore and Zantrex, I've lost 55 pounds, and I'm still going. I haven't been this thin since my twenties. I just bought a new skirt, and when I was trying it on it felt so amazing to keep telling the store clerk to bring me a smaller size. I ended up buying a size 2. It was awesome. I couldn't believe it."
But for Mindy, the greatest accomplishment isn't being able to fit into a size 2. "It's knowing that I really had the power to change my life. When I was overweight, I was miserable. But now everyone around me can see the difference losing weight has made not just in my physical appearance, but in everything. I have energy, I'm positive, I'm outgoing. My whole outlook on life has changed. I'm just so happy."
The Combo-Pilling Craze
The highly controversial practice of Combo-Pilling is truly an underground phenomenon. Odds are, if you know someone who's losing lots of weight, and losing it fast, you probably know someone who's Combo-Pilling... like Mindy D. Why? Because it allows people to attack multiple facets of weight loss – like dropping fat, overcoming stress eating, and having enough energy to work out – all at the same time.
According to the Internet, the most popular Combo-Pilling duo is Zantrex and Relacore. You can find them both at WalMart, Walgreens, Rite-Aid, CVS, and GNC, or order them separately from their respective manufacturers, Zantrex-3 at Zantrex3.com (1-800-580-9331), and Relacore at Relacore.com (1-800-454-2348).
Combo-Pilling with Relacore and a high-yield stimulant complex called TriAdalean™ seems to be a favorite among the more adventurous. TriAdalean promotes thermogenic fat oxidation, burns calories and increases metabolism, and is considered by many to be the strongest diet pill on the market. You can find it WalMart, GNC, CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens or direct from the manufacturer at 1-800-236-8214 or TriAdalean.com.
For some, using a supplement that offers dual weight-loss products in one easy package is more appealing. The most powerful in this category is called BiphedAdrene®, the Super Powerful "Diet Pill" that's been flying off store shelves. Biphed's maker says it's a two-part system comprised of a unique "Complex Phenylethylamine Provisional" (for powerful appetite control, mood-elevation, and energy) — the "Purple Pill" — combined with an aggressive thermogenic compound (for fat burning and stamina) — the "Yellow Pill." This two-pronged attack on fat is apparently what makes this "Combo-Pilling" superstar so effective... and so popular. BiphedAdrene is available exclusively at GNC or direct from the manufacturer at 1-800-600-9168 or www.Biphed.com. A 30-day supply costs $135, but if you use promo code COMBO2 at the manufacturer's website you get $25 off and free shipping.†

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation.

How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" ...

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
