Pizza Studio - Downtown L.A.

Pizza studio offers $7.99 unlimited toppings. Yup, good deal, right? But when you go to unlimited toppings pizza places, usually pizza crust is very thin and so does this place. The crust is so thin like cracker, so I told them to make it not so thin, they tried. I prefer little thicker crust but still, you can get this whole pizza for $8. I'm ok with it.

Pizzeria Mozza - Los Angeles

I've been to Osteria Mozza, but this was actually my first time trying Pizzeria Mozza. I've been to other Mario Batari's restaurants and I always enjoy his restaurants. I really liked the food here, both mussels and pizza were delicious. However, the service was not very good, we had empty plates on the table for a while and no one cleaned, no refill, asked for dessert menu and never brought us. Also I don't like that the tables are so close. I'm not very comfortable sitting so close to people I don't know. I don't like I can hear or they can hear our conversations.

SuppressMint: 3-Hour Craving Control Breath Mint

I take this SuppressMint when I get hungry at work. It's just like other mints, but these tiny "dot" helps. It also came with 2 pocket dispenser.

SuppressMint is a dot-sized, long-lasting (3-hour) slow-dissolve time-release peppermint-flavored micro-tab that is fortified with the proven dietary supplement and appetite suppressant Chromax (chromium picolinate).

You simply put the "dot" in your mouth between your gum and cheek where it takes up to three hours to dissolve -- and then, forget about it.

During the time it takes to dissolve or "melt" many people report they lose their desire and cravings for foods that make us all overweight—especially refined carbohydrates (cakes, cookies, chips, ice-cream, donuts, pastries, soda, etc.).

The end result is that you have the willpower to overcome the temptations and cravings that these foods stimulate and the willpower to stay on a healthy dieting and eating program so you can lose all the unhealthy body fat you want and to keep it off for good.

Chromium picolinate, the active ingredient in SuppressMint is a safe, proven and highly effective mineral with 20 years of research behind it. It helps reduce cravings for foods high in sugar and fat (refined carbohydrates and saturated fats) while it helps stabilize blood sugar (glucose levels) and calm anxiety and stabilize emotions.

As the tiny, pleasant pleasant tasting SuppressMint dot rests comfortably and undetectably in your mouth for its 3 hour slow-melt duration, it works on four levels to help you curb your cravings for high glycimic foods:

(1) Provides a sense of oral gratification for three hours. You don't feel the emotional need to eat while it's in your mouth.

(2)  The peppermint extract works directly on your brain's appetite control center to help reduce cravings.

(3)  The chromium picolinate also helps sooth cravings by interacting with the brain's "appestat," reduces blood sugar levels so you burn more fat for energy instead of sugar and enhances positive mood states.

(4) Most people who diet develop metallic smelling breath caused by ketosis. SuppressMint keeps your breath fresh and your mouth moist for its three hour, slow-melt duration.

SuppressMint is ideal for the millions who try to lose weight with low-calories, structured eating plans such as NutriSystem, Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers, etc. Most people fail to stay with these plans because they can't handle the cravings for refined high-sugar, flour and fat foods.

SuppressMint fortifies success on these plans when used between meals, especially in the late afternoon and during the evening when the cravings are the strongest.


Living Natural Advanced Probiotics

The digestive tract plays an important role in our body as it is the means by which nutrients from the food we eat are absorbed for use in various bodily functions, which include not only to regulate, grow and regenerate to the microcellular level, but also to protect it from diseases. Because of these, it is important to keep our digestive system in tip-top shape by balancing the best count of good bacteria that will keep the bad bacteria at bay and boost gut performance to the maximum.

We know that the diet, lifestyle and constantly stressful situations we encounter daily may cause an undesirable imbalance of these bacteria, and may often be the cause of mood swings, malabsorption of vitamins and minerals, and worse, cause diseases like high blood pressure that can ultimately lead to stroke.

This makes it important for us to make a conscious effort to keep our gut healthy by supplying it with the correct good bacteria enough to combat the invasive tendencies of bad bacteria when our immune system is down or becomes compromised due to illness or stress. However our diet may not sufficiently provide this, Blue Sky Retail has introduced its Living Natural Advanced Probiotics, a unique formulation composed of Unique IS-2 (bacillus coagulans) 75mg and NutraFlora P-95 (fructooligosaccharide or FOS) 500mg, to supplement the demands of colon health. When taken regularly, it not only guarantees an array of health benefits like taking away chronic stomach pains such as bloating, gas and indigestion, but also improves bowel movement through prevention of constipation. Taking 1 to 2 Living Natural Advanced Probiotics tablets on an empty stomach daily provides a feeling of being less weighed down and makes you enjoy a flat belly sensation. And not only that, it also helps improve your moods, enhances metabolism and immunity, and helps lowers blood pressure.

Directions For Adults only - Take one (1) to two (2) tablets per day on an empty stomach
