Lies, Rationalizations & Denial Part 1

There are few things in life that we have more control over than what, when, where, why and how much we eat.

Worse, severe calorie restricting diets can cause emotional turmoil, cravings and an impaired metabolic rate. All that before the recommended high impact gladiator style exercise that increase appetite and leaves you sore, hurting and immobile.

Hypnotic weight loss is different…
