Todd Lamb is the creator of The Flat Belly Fix. Unlike many other fitness program authors, he isn’t some major media fitness guru that’s been seen on this talk show and in that magazine. However, he has always had a strong understanding of health and fitness and what’s required to achieve both because he has always had a career which required him to do so. Todd is a veteran police officer of 17 years, a retired SWAT team leader, a SWAT and Canine dog handler, and also has military experience. In fact, his certifications are so long, we’d be here all day if I was to list them.
Mack David and Jerry Livingston had asked Ilene Woods to sing on several demo recordings of the songs. They had previously known her from her eponymous radio show "The Ilene Woods Show" which was broadcast on ABC. The show featured fifteen minutes of music, in which David and Livingston had their music presented.[26] Two days later, Woods received a telephone call from Disney, with whom she immediately scheduled an interview. Woods recalled in an interview with the Los Angeles Times, "We met and talked for awhile, and he said, 'How would you like to be Cinderella?'," to which she agreed.[27]
The film was Disney's greatest box office success since Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs earning $8 million in gross rentals.[25] By the end of its original run, it was the sixth highest-grossing film in 1950 earning $4.15 million in distributor rentals (the distributor's share of the box office gross).[60] It was the fifth most popular movie at the British box office in 1951.[61] The film is France's sixteenth biggest film of all time in terms of admissions with 13.2 million tickets sold.[62]
In 1922, Walt Disney produced a Laugh-O-Gram cartoon based on "Cinderella", and he had been interested in producing a second version in December 1933 as a Silly Symphony short. Burt Gillett was attached as the director while Frank Churchill was assigned as the composer. A story outline included "white mice and birds" as Cinderella's playmates. To expand the story, storyboard artists suggested visual gags, some of which ended up in the final film.[10] However, the story proved to be too complicated to be condensed into a short so it was suggested as a possible animated feature film as early as 1938 starting with a fourteen-page outline written by Al Perkins.[11][12] Two years later, a second treatment was written by Dana Cofy and Bianca Majolie, in which Cinderella's stepmother was named Florimel de la Pochel; her stepsisters as Wanda and Javotte; her pet mouse Dusty and pet turtle Clarissa; the stepsisters' cat Bon Bob; the Prince's aide Spink, and the stepsisters' dancing instructor Monsieur Carnewal. This version stuck closely to the original fairy tale until Cinderella arrives home late from the second ball. Her stepfamily then imprison Cinderella in a dungeon cellar. When Spink and his troops arrive at the la Pochel residence, Dusty takes the slipper and leads them to free Cinderella.[13]
On June 7, 2013, news confirmed that composer Patrick Doyle would score the film, with the music having an emphasis on romance.[34] Doyle has previously scored several Branagh films, including Hamlet and Thor.[35] He has also scored the Disney·Pixar computer-animated fantasy-comedy film Brave.[36] Doyle recorded the film's score with the London Symphony Orchestra conducted by James Shearman [37] at the Air Lyndhurst Studios in London.[37]
As the sisters depart to the ball, Cinderella cries in despair. Her Fairy Godmother magically appears and immediately begins to transform Cinderella from house servant to the young lady she was by birth, all in the effort to get Cinderella to the ball. She turns a pumpkin into a golden carriage, mice into horses, a rat into a coachman, and lizards into footmen. She then turns Cinderella's rags into a beautiful jeweled gown, complete with a delicate pair of glass slippers. The Godmother tells her to enjoy the ball, but warns her that she must return before midnight, when the spells will be broken.
Why do films like this exist in today's industry? Well franchising for one thing, and even though films like this are basically products in Disney's pipeline it CAN be well done given that the movie's got a determined director at the helm. And oddly, Branagh, the guy who directed films such as 1996's Hamlet, was just the guy to make Cinderella into a watchable film. It's pretty, has a good cast and has some nice tid-bits of humor here and there. And it's an update on the whole Disney-esque 'happily ever after' thing. Yes the story's the same but it gives some much-needed chemistry to Cinderella's and 'The Prince''s romantic charm. And... it works.
The Grand Duke and the Captain of the guards lead the search for the mystery princess by trying the slipper on every woman in the kingdom, but it refuses to fit anyone. At the Tremaine estate, the shoe fits neither stepsister; the company prepares to depart, but hear Ella singing Lavender's Blue. The Grand Duke urges them to leave, but Kit, who has secretly accompanied them, commands the Captain to investigate. The slipper fits Ella, and she and Kit promise to accept one another for who they truly are. As they leave, Ella forgives her stepmother. Soon after, Lady Tremaine, her daughters, and the Grand Duke leave the kingdom, never to return.
This individual's goal is to lose the 16 pounds she has gained. Since her weight has been gradually increasing, she knows that she is consuming more calories than she is burning, especially with her sedentary job. She decides that losing weight at a rate of 1 pound per week (equal to a deficit of about 3,500 calories, or cutting 500 calories per day) would be acceptable and would allow her to reach her goal in about four months.
The Venus Factor by John Barban is a digital product which means that you can get all the material of the program few minutes after you purchase it. On the one hand this is a great advantage since you can start following the program right away, on the other hand it is not possible to find the main guides of this product in hard cover version and to purchase it at stores, something that some women prefer.
The Flat Belly Fix program is really easy to follow. It gets straight to the point, eliminates all of the nonsense no one actually wants to learn about and gets you working towards better eating and more effective exercise. The only downside is that the meal timings and composition was a little different to follow, and I would have loved to see all of the quality information laid out in an easy-to-read table. The good news is that you do have it; it’s just not laid out as pretty as I had hoped.
The scientific soundness of commercial diets by commercial weight management organizations (CMWOs) varies widely, being previously non-evidence-based, so there is only limited evidence supporting their use, due notably to high attrition rates.[38][39][40][41][42][43] Commercial diets result in modest weight loss in the long-term, with similar results regardless of the brand,[40][42][44][45] and similarly to non-commercial diets and standard care.[38][3] Comprehensive diet programs, providing counseling and targets for calorie intake, are more efficient than dieting without guidance ("self-help"),[38][46][45] although the evidence is very limited.[43] The NICE devised a set of essential criteria to be met by commercial weight management organizations to be approved.[41]
Another well-known version was recorded by the German brothers Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm in the 19th century. The tale is called "Aschenputtel" ("Cinderella" in English translations). This version is much more intense than that of Perrault and Disney, in that Cinderella's father did not die and the stepsisters mutilate their feet to fit in the golden slipper. There is no fairy godmother, but rather help comes from a wishing tree that the heroine planted on her mother's grave. In the second edition of their collection (1819), the Grimms supplemented the original 1812 version with a coda in which the stepsisters suffer a terrible punishment for their cruelty.

Following the theatrical release of Fun and Fancy Free, Walt Disney Productions' bank debt declined from $4.2 million to $3 million.[19] Around this time, Disney acknowledged the need for sound economic policies, but emphasized to the loaners that slashing production would be suicidal. In order to restore the studio to full financial health, he expressed his desire to return to producing full-length animated films. By then, three animated projects—Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, and Peter Pan—were in development. Disney felt the characters in Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan were too cold, while Cinderella contained elements similar to Snow White, and greenlit the project. Selecting his top-tier animation talent, Ben Sharpsteen was assigned as supervising producer while Hamilton Luske, Wilfred Jackson, and Clyde Geronimi became the sequence directors.[20] Nevertheless, production on Alice resumed so that both animation crews would effectively compete against each other to see which film would finish first.[21]
After the release and success of Cinderella, along with Alice in Wonderland, Maleficent, The Jungle Book, Beauty and the Beast, Christopher Robin, Dumbo, Aladdin, The Lion King, and Lady and the Tramp ‍—‌ Walt Disney Pictures has announced the development of several other live-action remakes from their Animated Classics series.[127][128][129][130][131][132][133][134] Since the releases of these nine films, Disney has announced the development of live-action adaptations of Mulan,[135] Pinocchio,[136] Fantasia,[137] The Sword in the Stone,[138] The Black Cauldron,[139] Peter Pan,[140] The Little Mermaid,[141] Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,[142] Lilo & Stitch,[143] The Hunchback of Notre Dame,[144] Bambi,[145] Robin Hood,[146] and Hercules.[147] The company also has plans for live-action spin-offs of Peter Pan, One Hundred and One Dalmatians and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs along with live-action prequels to Aladdin and the original Cinderella.[148][149][150][151][152]
Cinderella received positive reviews from critics with particular praise going to the cast, notably Blanchett, James, and Bonham Carter, Patrick Doyle's musical score, faithfulness to the original animated film, and Sandy Powell's costume designs.[84] On review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, the film holds an 84% approval rating, based on 242 reviews, with a rating average of 7.16/10. The site's critical consensus reads, "Refreshingly traditional in a revisionist era, Kenneth Branagh's Cinderella proves Disney hasn't lost any of its old-fashioned magic."[85] Metacritic assigned the film a weighted average score of 67 out of 100, based on 47 critics, indicating "generally favorable reviews".[86] According to CinemaScore, audiences gave the film a grade of "A" on an A+ to F scale.[87]

The best approach for weight loss is reducing the number of calories you eat while increasing the number of calories you burn through physical activity. To lose 1 pound, you need an expenditure of approximately 3,500 calories. You can achieve this either by cutting back on your food consumption, by increasing physical activity, or ideally, by doing both.
