I started to take MetRx which contains aspartame.

For the past two weeks, I have started to take MetRx. A couple of my friends have brought up the fact that it contains aspartame which supposedly kills brain cells and has not been approved by the FDA. I take this mix twice a day and the difference I have noticed is that I...

I was looking for an article on carbohydrate, protein and fat metabolism prevention.

I was looking for an article on carbohydrate, protein and fat metabolism prevention. I could not find it anywhere. Do you know anything about these inhibitors? How healthy or safe are they?

I got to your website from Prime Quest which is a diet using adaptogens.

There are many articles by nutritionists to rely on. The Herbal Life Plan is one such alternative and people may tend to shy away from even looking at any of...

I found your website by looking up that cabbage soup diet to fit into this wedding dress.

Ironically enough, I found your website by looking up that silly Cabbage Soup Diet.

Would weight loss be equal on 1200 calorie/day high protein, low carb vs. 1200 calorie/day high carb?

Given everything else identical, would weight loss be equal on 1200 calorie/day high protein, low carb vs. 1200 calorie/day high carb? Thanks for your reply.
