 heard of diet called "shape reclaimed".  u take  drops ea day in water & there is hormones from sheep in it? Is this.safe? u  r on low carb diet also

If you try it tell us your results! ...Read more

My friend had high fat low carb diet and omit wheat, rice, sugar oat and all other cereals from food list. Is it safe? M indian n can"t forego wheat.

Fad diet: This "pop" diet -- despite the elaborate "scientific theory" presented by its proponents -- probably works like most of the other diet fads by limiting food choices. It's your friend's business; i trust this person will use appropriate, cost-effective supplements as needed if it's too restrictive. ...Read more
