There are numerous diets and fueling strategies which are touted as the answer, but rarely is a specific diet appropriate for everyone.

That is the only way that you will accomplish your goals and make these changes into permanent lifestyle choices. We’ll discuss this and the individuality of proper diet on January 23rd.
