Lose Weight, Lose Sleep Apnea?
In her own words, It makes me lose weight faster. You eat the same but liquefied. Also known as the Miracle Patch, this method of losing weight was introduced in 2009 by Dr. Nikolas Chugay, and promises a weight loss of up to 30 pounds (13.6 kg) or more in a month. The girl decided that this was the best way for her to lose weight fast. She lives in a Santa Cruz barrio in Caracas and is reportedly doing this because she wants to show the world that people from the slums can succeed. One can argue that her efforts in altering her body defeat the purpose of a beauty pageant which is to find the most naturally beautiful girl, but, sadly, this miracle garcinia cambogia no longer applies to such events in Venezuela, where these have become a virtual industry.

Can Weight Watchers Stop Losing Big?
For the new study, published in the journal Sleep Medicine , researchers followed 57 people who were obese and had mild obstructive sleep apnea. The participants were randomly assigned to one of two groups: One group underwent a year-long lifestyle intervention program, while the other group just received general diet and exercise information. The researchers specifically wanted to see how a 5 percent weight loss would potentially affect sleep apnea. Researchers followed up with the participants four years later (after the year-long intervention program), and found that 20 were “successful” in achieving 5 percent weight loss, while 27 were “unsuccessful” in achieving 5 percent weight loss.
