- We've all seen them, the breakfast cereal/cereal bar/milk shake/frozen dinner commercials that say if we substitute one or two meals for this or that product, we will lose weight.
We've all read them, the magazine articles that tell us to count calories or cut certain foods like carbs or unhealthy fats to lose a safe amount of weight each month, something around five pounds or less.
Though many of these claims are true and these are not

If you go through a stressful time, a pregnancy, a
surgery or some other life event that causes you to gain a few pounds,

simple way to return to your ideal weight. You should, of course be
eating healthy along with this, but you should not focus on healthy
