Following A Sensible Weight Loss Plan

Overview: By now, you may been riding the fad weight loss plan merry-go-round for quite some time and are ready to jump off. You have followed one regimented diet after another (the Zone, the Cabbage Soup diet or the Atkins diet), eaten prepackaged or powdered foods or MREs (meals rejected by Ethiopians), counted calories, given up flavor in favor of low fat, gone to the support groups. And you may have even lost some weight – only to see the pounds reappear after you went off the program. Every year, 100 million Americans go on a diet and up to 95% of them gain back any weight they lose within five...
