All the lies. Years of trying and only getting BS. You must eat from 1200-1800 to lose weight, lower than that and you are in the “terrible” starvation mode. Grains - rice, wheat should be on every plate. You have to drink tons of water everyd... Read more

A funny thing has happened; I’m finding it hard to eat. After the first two weeks I no longer felt driven to eat. Just the opposite. But recently, a very strange-never before happening, thing has occurred. I literally start feeling sick to m... Read more
