Let’s Eat

So many diets, so little time.  And what do they have you doing?  Not eating, that’s what. Don’t eat this or that or any of the other thing, day in and day out.  With the Fasting Lifestyle, you can eat what you want on Tuesday, as long as you eat the following menu on Monday.  Give it a try.
