  1. Liver Cleanser Says:

    Ive read that boiling can take a lot of nutrients out of the beet. Try juicing a beet with 2 carrots and an apple, little ginger and some lemon. Is really clean tasting and palatable.

    The size of your plate and bowls determine the amount of food you eat.

    The last thing you want to do is gorge yourself on fast foods, donuts, burgers, fries,
    and pizza. It’s like a key and a lock: The key was designed to fit only one
    lock.
