One of the Biggest Struggles with Nutrition

"I can’t eat vegetables … I don’t like any of them." That’s what one of our clients recently told us. None.  She said she doesn’t like ANY of them … can’t stomach them. To be honest, she’s not far off from the rest of the population.  A recent study showed just 25% of the population at the absolute minimum recommendation of 3 servings daily. Do you?

Same goes for nutrition — portions, food choices, do you eat breakfast, meal frequency, etc. But one nutrition factor stands head and shoulders above the rest when getting rid of belly fat and getting beach body ready.
