"Great service and coaching here. I feel better within a few weeks of this program, which is based on a ketogenic way of eating. I've tried eating "keto" before but failed because of my addition to sugar. ( I'm still trying to find healthy recipes that I can eat on this plan that include a boat load of mashed potatoes )... This program works for me because I don't have to think too much about what I put in my gullet - it's planned out and easy to follow."
