Amazin Brain It is from this Memory that I realized while searching for health food practices that if I was going to lose weight and become healthy I was going to need to stop watching others and learn for myself what works. Following the latest trend of harmful food diets such as eliminating carbohydrates, eliminating sugars, or only eating cabbage soup for two weeks is not going to be a permanent fix. How many times have you heard someone go on a diet and a few weeks later hear that he/she was off the diet? The American concept of a weight lose plan diet never works, a lifestyle diet is what works permanently. It is not a quick fix however will stay permanent.
