I think we all know it in our gut.  There are not short cuts!

Skipping meals and starving yourself doesn't work.

Intermittent fasting is at an all time high in popularity right now, but not all of the research shows that it is beneficial for women.

Did you know that many additives, preservatives and dyes that are used in food in the US are banned in other countries?
