Detox teas don’t work. And while I think we all knew that, many people still try them based on the recommendations of their favorite celebrities and social media stars. Those well-known figures make the money from promotion while we, the little people, spend the money trying to keep up. But model Tabria Majors tried what is probably the most popular detox tea on the market, Flat Tummy Tea, and had no problem letting her followers know that they should save their money. It was a first, as most stars love to claim the tea is the best thing since sliced bread for their bloating:

As registered dietician Marci Clow told us back in May about these teas, overuse of them in an effort to get rid of bloating and possibly lose some weight can actually be harmful due to a loss in nutrients. This can cause dehydration, deficiency in potassium, and muscle cramping. “Most detox tea regimens contain diuretic and laxative herbal ingredients, which may be ‘natural’ but that doesn’t mean they are healthy, let alone safe,” she said.

And while Majors’s decision to call bull on the Flat Tummy Tea review probably doesn’t seem like that big of a deal, it’s actually a great thing to see. So many social media personalities misuse their influence. They peddle products that really aren’t worth a damn to fans who won’t do the research to figure out what the deal is with the things they’re putting in or on their bodies. With that being said, I applaud Majors for telling it like it is.

Market timing strategy of – We advocate cautious and infrequent market timing, exchanging between high growth funds (C, S, I) and fixed return funds (F, G), typically 1 to 3 times each year.  The aim of this timing strategy is to wait out market downturns in the fixed return funds and reap the profits of upturns in the high growth funds.

Methodology – Our buy/sell (exchange) market timing calls are based on analysis of  fundamental (corporate profitability) data and technical (cyclical trend) data.

Timing Success – We do not claim to be able to predict stock market performance, although we have had considerable success timing the market in our own TSP i Fund over the last 15 years.

Ahhh, Tinder.  Despite its reputation as an app for hooking up, it’s now also used by women who want real relationships…but don’t want to waste time getting to the date part of online dating.  This is GREAT news for you!

Like all dating sites, Tinder is a game.  To beat the game, start by uploading flattering profile pictures.  There’s space for one or two sentences about yourself, which you should complete with one interesting and one flattering fact about you.  Don’t worry about writing a lot here.  The focus of Tinder is on messaging, AKA texting that’s why we’ll teach you how to message people on tinder.

When a girl is interested in you, she swipes right on your photo.  Once you’ve been right-swiped, your battle with chance is won!  All that stands between you and meeting this potentially awesome girl is your ability to hold an engaging text conversation.
