PS1000 Program Review

PS1000 Diet Program It might seem surprising to see such raving reviews for a diet you may or may not have heard of before.

What matters is if the product is actually effective in helping you lose weight and keep it off. […]200
Beyond Diet Review

Beyond Diet Review

The Beyond Diet was created back in 2008 by fitness and diet enthusiast Isabel De Los Rios. Many people who sign up for this diet program don’t think of it as a diet, but rather as a new relationship with food.

Danette May Review

Danette May Diet Review

Danette May Fitness Program “Eat, Drink, Shrink.” I have to admit, I think that’s a pretty clever title for a weight-loss book. So right off the bat, Danette May gets big ups from me for that. And if it works, well, even better.   But before we begin to learn more about Danette May and her popular weight-loss and exercise programs, I must say this: there’s no such thing as a “degree in pre-med,” as […]15

[2] But no plan brought low-carbing so brightly into the spotlight as The Atkins Diet, introduced in the early 1970s. […]11
