    I totally agree; going natural – especially when you’re trying to lose weight – is your best option. Plus, there are so many added chemicals, that you don’t even truly know what you’re really getting:( Great post and I look forward to sharing more with you:))

      Thank you, wartica. In my professional opinion, behavior change is the way to go. Inexpensive, no side effects, wide ranging, and lifelong. Some may argue that some people need a little help to get started, but these are the same people that gain weight on purpose so that they qualify for that “help”.
