Facing the Mental Challenge

I see a lot of people throughout my day. Some I see for weight loss and some I see for strength. No matter the client I see, most have had a mental barrier at some point.

Let's talk more about how drinking water helps with weight loss.

Why is the most important thing for your body

******Sleep Controls Your Diet-- The debate about the best way to achieve a healthy weight always revolves around eating and movement. If you want to look better, the most common suggestion is “eat less and move more.” But it’s not that simple, or even accurate. Sometimes you want to eat less and move more, but it seems impossible to do so.
