As a consummate ‘Googler’ I do extensive research on anything health & fitness related before attempting it myself or sharing it with you. That being said, I do not have any formal training in health & fitness and I am definitely NOT a medical professional. Please do not use my posts in place of medical advice as almost everything posted to my blog, FB page, etc. is from personal experience only.
If you are thinking about starting a new diet or exercise regimen, please consult with a registered dietician or your physician, respectively.
