It’s full of misconceptions, misnomers, bad science and greedy companies trying to get their hand even further into your wallet.

Put simply: unless you’re an athlete, or exercising intensely more than 6-8 hours week, you’re not going to lose moreweight doing following this method.

It’s more about what you put in your mouth, instead of
