Adding some electrolytes to your water can help with "salt" loss. ...Read more

A low BMI increases risk for illnesses, including Amenorrhea - absence of your period, which can put you at risk for infertility and premature osteoporosis.

My doc's ok with this. I am going on a 3 day fast to detoxy and lose weight. I am only drinking green tea and water. How can I have energy?

Consider using an organic greens/superfood powder for better results. See comment:. ...Read more
