It may help to review your overall food plan with a nutritionist to see how the soy smoothies fit into it. Exercise too! ...Read more

What is adhs? I seen it on an answer pertaining to weight loss problems

Snake oil: It is one of many unregulated, un tested, and non-sensical agents sold for the purpose of weight loss. Its claim is adrenal regulation, but there are no ingredients in it to do that; if there were, it would be only used for specific syndromes managed under the care of an endocrinologist.

If you take in less than you are expending you will lose weight. ...Read more
