One Bite at a Time

One Bite at a Time So I get the message.  For a lot of you it is just too much change at one time for you to start working out six days a week and to also change all your nutrition habits at the same time.  You feel overwhelmed and you quit shortly after you started because it is just “too much to handle”.  I know...

The Answer
