Final Words on NSNG

We make way to much of this. The weight loss industry is a multi-billion dollar industry, and we are over thinking it. Cut out the Sugars and Grains (NSNG). Make that your foundation, just tweak everything else to suit your body. Then move a little and do some exercise.

This is all simple stuff. We all make far too much of it. Don’t over think things. Especially Women, because they are very hard on themselves if they “Cheat” or “Fall off the wagon.” We all get knocked off once in a while. You just got to get back on.
