Herbal life Zombies

The other day I had a nightmare. I went to the gym and the guy on reception decided to make small talk, which sounded out of character. He constructed sentences in what sounded like a sales pitch. It turned out he was, he mentions some amazing nutritional product called herbal life which seemed to specialise … Continue reading Herbal life Zombies

Are you fat because of your medication?

One of the biggest excuses I hear for not losing weight is medication. And I use the word 'excuse' because 99% of the time, it isn't medication but an individuals choice of lifestyle.
