Can’t Button Your Pants? How We Can Beat Bloating

Perhaps you’re like me. If so, you have two sets of clothes: ones you wear when you are bloated and ones that are comfortable when you are not.

I Can’t Lose Weight No Matter What I Do!

My dear sisters, I can’t tell you how many times I hear this from my readers and all the women whom I come across who are struggling with their weight. And in the not so distant past, I was shouting this weight loss frustration from the depths of my soul as well. I not only could not lose weight; it also was packing on the pounds, even though I thought I was eating the healthiest foods.

But I learned something life-changing: Not only was I wrong about what I was eating. I also discovered the real reason behind my inability to lose weight.
