Stop using. That is what works. ...Read more

I have an allergy to fruit and I eat so much junk food but I am still losing weight!?

A diet heavy in junk food provides little nutrition. Would suggest substituting more vegetables, lean meats, and once seen by Allergist, fruits. To gain weight safely, working with a nutritionist can be helpful. ...Read more
