Losing weight is a marathon, not a sprint…and quick fixes never work in the long-term senerio. But all natural supplements can be an alternative to the harsh side effects of the modern day prescription drugs. My personal experience has proven this statement to be a fact in my life, and the outcome for me has been a complete restored quality of life. The experience of being restricted to the couch and recliner with no quality of life and in a nine month period, making the transition to full activity and beginning my journey of enjoying the outdoors; camping, kayaking, fly fishing, etc. has been the greatest blessing God has ever bestowed upon me.
