I started working out everyday for 30-60 min using home workout videos( jillian michaels) what foods help to cut belly fat after c-section im 5'2 118l?

When shopping for fruits, buy small ones no bigger than a tennis ball, because fruits have sugar. Drinks without calories include water and green tea. A calorie is a calorie, but surely avoid sugar & simple starch calories. ...Read more
Is drinking 60oz distilled water a day dangerous? I am doing the Jillian Michaels Detox for 7 days (lemon, cranberry, dandelion root tea)is it safe?
In context.: Drinking 60 oz of water (doesn't have to be distilled) is adequate for hydration.

Detox is nutritionally deficient & you can get electrolyte problems. Check w/ your doctor before starting any "fad" diets. ...Read more
Is it safe to take 2-b12, 2-b6, 3-lysine, 15000ui of d - vitamins, 4 tbls of crushed flaxseed and also 4 jillian michaels fat burner per day?

Jillian michaels product at least says it has 100mg caffeine/dose (from guarana). You have no idea how much of anything else is in the proprietary blend. Can't recommend this regimen-it's wack. ...Read more
