Is it possible to lose 12 pounds in 2 days?

I have been working on my laptop for last five six months now and during this whole time I didn't take care of myself at all. Result a big belly and gaining about 10 pounds. I know I should have been more active physically not to put up that much weight but I did. What should I do now? Should I do some exercise to get rid of excessive weight or keep on being a lazy bum? Of course I don't like my big belly cause I am started to look like as if I am pregnat for some time now :)

I started to look around on the net to see if any diet will work on me and and magically take away the extra pounts of fat aroun my waist without even moving my body - I mean without any hard core exercise. I searched for few hours and found two diets which I tought may work on me. I will explain the reasons why I though so with each diet in next paragraphs. I chose
2-day Slimdown
and Amazon Diet.

2-day Slimdown
claims that just by using this diet on the weekend and lots of water, it is possible to lose upto 12pounds on week end. It sounded prety appealing to me specially when I saw that I can get trial bottle for just paying the shipping and handling only. I decided to give it a try. The diet is supposedly the 'blend' of all natural fat burning herbs and minrals and vitamins with a powerful appetiet supperssant. I ordered the Free bottle of 2-day Slimdown and paid $7.97 as shipping and handling charges.

I received the trial bottle of 2-day Slimdown and followed the instructions to use it. I had it to use following so called 4-4-4 formula meaning 4 ounce of formula in 4 ounces of cold water 4 times a day. I also had to drink 8 liters of water in a day. Did I lose weight and how did I feel during the time when I was using 2-day Slimdown? Well answer is yes I did lose about 5 pounds in two days but it was not all that easy time. I did feel a bit tired and hungery occasionally but supperessed that by drinking glass of cold water. Honestly, it is very hard for me to state that if the weight loss was becuase of the 2-day Slimdown formula or cause I didn't eat for two days and had just water and water only. I wonder if I will lose weight and feel the same if I used only water for two days! I will try that as well and report it on this blog once I do that.

The second diet is Amazon Diet which claims to shed weight fast using 'Cha De Bugre' herb which is found in Brazilian rain forests. It is also available for trial for Free. If someone has tried Amazon Diet or will like to try Amazon Diet and would like share the results with others, please do so here. That may help me and many others to decide to take the trial as well so that we can get rid of those extra pounds and start feeling good about ourselves.

In summary, I would say it is possible to lose weight fast using the 2-day Slimdown formula though you may feel hungery and a bit tired during this period. However, you will gain weight again if you don't change your eating habits after losing this weight. I have started eating smaller portions of food than I was used to earlier and I am able to keep that extra fat away from my body for a week now.

How to increase Widgetbucks earning?

I have been using WidgetBucks for about 3 weeks now and my earning so far is $1.03. Different people using widgetbucks are reporting earning per click for various categories. Some are as high as $0.60 per click and some are just few cents.

Here are few tips to increase WidgetBucks earning:

1. Placement of WidgetBucks widget on blog/website
It is very important as with any other PPC advertising to place the widget on a prominent place of your blog or website. I would suggest left hand coloum or using 300 x 250 medium rectangle for better conversions. I will start experiment with various positions and sizes and will report the results here soon.

2. Product Category
Some product categories convert more than others so selecting the right product category which matches with the interest of blog readers or website visitor will increase conversion. It is important that just not to go for highest paying product category but also keep in mind the theme and contents of your site when selecting one.

3. Category variations
Once your website visitors are used to one product, it will be advisable to change the category to show some thing which will also be of interest. You might want to show more than one widget at a time or just show one WidgetBucks widget at time on a prominant position and keep on changing the category after few days.

Here is the advice from the to improve the conversion rates.

Well one can use all the above tips and still will not make any money if the traffic to your site is very low in numbers. It is all number game. Higher the number of visitors to your site, higher will be the conversion rate and hence your earning. Key for success is the traffic. I will talk about this in an other post.
WidgetBucks still have the problem of slowing down the website loading using slower internet connections as well as unavailablity of data at some times. In general, widgets would load faster with high speed internet connections.

Amazon's New Widgets for Affiliate Marketing has introduced a suite of new widgets to assist its associates promote products in a number of different ways. Associates/Affiliates can choose pre-designed widget or customize it to match with the look of their website. I am using one widget which shows product tag cloud from the cellphone category of the Amazon inventory.

Although, I was signed in before customizing the widget, I was warned again again that I am not signed in and wont be able to receive the commision. I felt annoyed with this repeated warnings. May by when you try to customize yours, you may not have the very same issue. Apart from it, I think that widgets are amazing and will provide more cool tools to associates to increase their bucks.
