Top Weight Loss Strategies or Ways to Hate Life



Sometimes you just want to feel better in life than you do now, particularly with your health. And one of the ways to do that is to feel really awful about life for a long time.

  • "Some foods,  like cabbage, take more calories to digest than they provide. You can find these foods mostly in the dumpster behind the grocery."
  • “Have you tried intermittent fasting? It’s where you don’t eat most of the day.”
