National Cake Day

26th November is National Cake Day, celebrated with  “Cakes”. It is not known when the origins of National Cake day began, but the word for cake has it’s origins in the Viking language. The Old Norse word being “kaka”!

Cakes are used to celebrate many of our rituals from Birthday Cakes, Christmas cakes, Wedding cakes etc and many a young child has many happy memories of baking with a family member. I certainly have fond memories of learning to bake fairy cakes commonly known now as “cupcakes”, with my Mother, and also many happy memories of teaching my daughter to bake the same. At the age of 5 or 6, it was a way of reinforcing her number skills, although 4 and 8 ounces were much easier for her to add up, and divide by 2 than the 30 or 250 grams that today’s children have to work with 🙂

And now we are left with the after effects, generally on our hips and thighs, yes I am talking about the guilt of eating too much cake and the weight that goes on with it! So what’s the answer to this dilemma?

Well as luck would have it Proto-col do 2 products that can help with this.

Firstly we have Thermo-slim capsules

proto-col natural slimming supplement. Suppress feelings of hunger and boost your vitality.
proto-col thermo-slim plus metaboliser is expertly formulated utilising herbal technology, to suppress feelings on hunger and boost your vitality and therefore your metabolism � meaning you are likely to feel more energised and motivated to exercise. proto-col natural slimming supplements, unlike most others on the market, are ephedrine-free to ensure safe weight loss.
