A Fresh Approach to Good Health 


"How many of us have tried different fad food regimens and quick weight loss diets hoping to find a magic wand that would change our lives to be better forever? I have. Yes, I fell victim to some of these diets once (or maybe more) when I was desperate to lose a couple pounds following each of my pregnancies."
