Free Diet Plan
Be certain to incorporate activity into your weight loss program; we recommend a 10-15 walk each day at minimum per your doctor's approval. And of course, your doctor is your best source for determining your caloric needs which will bring you to your recommended healthy weight.
We also recommend that you drink 6-8 glasses of water daily which will keep your fluids flowing - as well as your vital organs.
Before beginning any diet plan, be sure and get with your physician.
