  • Weight Loss Tip:
    Eat small frequent meals rather than infrequent big meals, avoid carbohydrate: fries, bread, noodle, rice, suger, cookies, crackers, donuts, candies, sugar ...

    This weight loss tip has been practiced and proved effective by a client of mine: he has to sit in airplanes all day long because of his work, he is freaked out thinking that this will make him fat. So he was determined to cut down his food intake. Every 3 weeks, when I saw him, he was skinner than the time before---he was visibly shrinking down, after 6 months, he only had a skeleton left.

    As you can see Discipline is another factor.
  • Chinese Medicine: Simple and Cheap, everybody can be his/her own Chinese Medicine doctor.
