Habits Determine Your Health

Your habits determine your health!  It’s that simple. If you can change your habits, you can change your health. Realize this, we are either healthy or unhealthy. Which are you? Don’t sugar coat your answer, we can justify everything these days and we usually do. Change only happens when you are totally honest with yourself [...]

The Secret They Don’t Want You To Know About!

Diets. We’ve all either tried at least one or know someone who has.
