Follow Your Energy

Weight Loss Diets

Do Calories Count?

Is weight-gain a simple matter of calories in vs. calories out? Many nutritionists think so. I don’t.

Her over-exercising actually produced so much cortisol from the stress, it was impossible for her to lose her belly weight.

I’ve had clients add just one mineral supplement and weight falls off with no other changes.
