  1. A Common Sense Healthy Approach to Weight Loss

    For a lot of us, it’s tough to find the right diet or exercise program to overcome a lifetime of bad choices. In a super-size me culture that involves huge portion sizes, poor quality food and an abundance of bad health choices, the need for real, tangible solutions is more important now than ever.
